45 Riots is hands down the best wedding band in New York. After attending many weddings and researching tons of bands in the area, we knew that they were our best option after going to one of their shows. They are amazing musicians and entertainers. We wanted the music to be a reflection of us and the music we love and Adam (the band leader) completely understood our taste. Our friends and family could not get off the dance floor the entire night. People were telling us for weeks after how much they loved 45 Riots. We even have recently engaged friends who are looking to book them for their own wedding because they enjoyed ours so much. They are total pros and completely made our night!

If you're looking to party all night long at your wedding, this band is a must have!! 45 Riots' band was absolutely amazing. They are so talented, have such a wide variety of song selections to choose from, and have the most amazing energy that really gets people dancing. We couldn't be happier to have had them as part of our wedding celebration. We chose the 8 piece band and also added a DJ to keep the party going while the band took breaks, and both the band and DJ were phenomenal and understood what the crowd wanted. They are, hands down, the best band I've seen at any wedding!

45 Riots is THAT band you want at your wedding. They actually played at my friends wedding earlier in the year and I was sold then!! When we were starting to plan our own wedding we did attempt to look around at bands, and none could compare. Robin and Adam were very prompt and helped us make all the final decisions and wonderful touches. I hyped up this band so much and they did not disappoint!! They serenaded our guests before the ceremony and learned the song that we wanted to walk down the aisle too. The sax and piano was played wonderfully during the cocktail hour. And they all came together for the most amazing time during our reception. Our guests are still talking about our wedding and how amazing 45 Riots were. They have a wonderful energy about them and definitely played off of all the love that was in the room. The lead singers were on point and their personalities came through all night long. At on point, it was as if we had a concert at our wedding. Everyone was dancing and singing all night long to the classic 90's hip hop and R&B that we requested.

I can't say enough amazing things about 45 Riots! I've seen them perform in clubs in NYC several times, and they always have the whole place dancing, so I knew they were the band for our wedding. And they sure didn't disappoint! The dance floor was constantly full, and all of our guests were complimenting us on them. 45 Riots is NOT a wedding band, no cheesy, cookie cutter wedding songs with part-time musicians--they are true professional musicians that create beautiful song arrangements and work with the flow of the wedding to keep the energy up, or bring it down when necessary. My groom and I have varied music taste, from hard rock and alternative to hip-hop, and they worked all of our song choices in with perfection, still being tasteful and appropriate for our family of all ages. The volume and sound were perfect, not too loud, so you could still carry on a conversation with the guests. Adam, the band leader, is a consummate professional from a customer service perspective and gave us great recommendations on the flow and timeline of the reception. I highly recommend 45 Riots for your wedding, or any event!!!

HIRE 45 RIOTS!! My experience with 45 Riots from my first contact with them through the end of the wedding process was 100% positive. David Cruz was my main contact with the band. He was always responsive, helpful and professional. Adam was also cc'd on all of our emails and was up to date and informed about our wedding and me and my husband's requests - even 12 months out from the date! None of my requests for 45 RIots were received a "no" - the band was flexible and willing to honor our requests. Adam and the band learned at least 3 songs for my wedding and absolutely NAILED them. The band was helpful with tailoring the wedding timeline to our specific requests, while also providing valuable advice about how they suggested the dance sets be structured. Most importantly, the musicians are so talented, professional and kind. It is obvious that the musicians love music, love to perform and want to make the guests happy. After seeing the band live, we saw how unique the band is and how unbelievable their musical range is and knew we HAD to hire them (and have a 10-piece band because the horn section was incredibly fun, energetic and awesome). My expectations for the band were very high, and 45 Riots completely EXCEEDED them. My guests could not stop raving about the band and even my wedding planner who sees all kinds of wedding bands said that 45 RIots was the best wedding band she has seen. Many of my guests prefer DJs but were converted by 45 riots performance. The range the band covered our wedding night was insane - from rock music (Bruce Springsteen, U2, Van Morrison and the Rolling Stones) to hip hop, 90's rock and alternative rock. They also had super fun mashups that took us all by surprise. We also hired DJ Eno through the band to play our after party - he was also professional, talented and listened to all of our requests. Overall, I can't say enough about how much I loved my experience with 45 Riots. Simply awesome.

We enthusiastically recommend 45 riots--- thanks to them, we had everyone on the dance floor the entire night and guests continuously came up to us to tell us how great they sounded. Also, they executed all of our requests (in terms of announcements, etc.) perfectly and provided very helpful guidance on timing.

We first heard them at the wedding of our dear friends, and knew then they were just what we were looking for when we planned our own wedding. From the very first song as guests arrived to the very last song of the night, they kept huge smiles on our and our guests' faces the entire evening. They couldn't have sounded more incredible or been more fun, and we can't thank them enough!

Hands down, hiring 45 Riots was the best decision I made for my reception. The 10 piece band absolutely KILLED it and kept the entire party on the dance floor all night long. A nonstop dance party was what I was hoping for and they certainly delivered. The entire party was even chanting for an encore at the end of the night!! My guests were constantly coming up to me throughout the night telling me how amazing the band was and that they were the best wedding band they've seen. I'm still getting compliments on them. We have a lot of musicians and "music snobs" in our family/friends so this was a big deal!! If you're considering booking 45 Riots - DO IT!!!

45 Riots was seriously SO AMAZING -- they are not only unbelievably talented musicians, but they really spent a lot of time getting to know my husband and I and what kind of music we loved, and what time of reception we wanted to have -- people were up dancing the entire time they were playing, and our guests continue to rave about the band! I can't say enough good things about them -- they really made our wedding unforgettable!

The band was phenomenal!!! We had such a blast. Brian and Dean killed it! Our guests are still raving about everyone. In fact, one of my friends said she's basically emulating our wedding with the exact same music. Leading up to our big day, my husband and I had been told that the mark of a great wedding is when you look around and see the tables are completely empty and the dance floor is completely full. That happened in spurts throughout the night. The last hour however -- the final push -- was like that every second. I can't recommend these guys enough!!!
