We can not be any happier with this band. Adam was great to work with from day one. He was always able to respond to emails or take phone calls as soon as any questions came up. People have not stopped raving about the band and their performance at our wedding. Everyone wants to know where we found them and who they are. They are that good. The band did a great job of mixing the music up to include current songs, old songs, country songs, and all other request we had. The band for our wedding could not have been more perfect. The dance floor was packed all night long .

We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding so great.

Everyone kept asking 'Where'd you find the band?!' They were that good. From the moment we started working with the band leader, Adam, he was very attentive, professional and flexible. I knew we were in good hands immediately and after watching them perform at Red Lion I knew we had found the perfect sound to keep everybody dancing. And everybody did. The dance floor was packed before some people had taken their first bite of corned beef (and it was an 11am wedding). Throughout the day Adam was checking in with me and he made sure everything ran extremely smoothly with seamless transitioning between the songs. They made everything seem effortless and were more than accommodating when both my dad and my 5-year-old niece took turns stealing the mic for their own chance at stardom. Even accompanying them with backup for their songs. They are so good we will go to see them perform in the city again. We couldn't be happier and our only regret is that we didn't have a longer reception.

I cannot say enough about the After Party Band! We spent most of our time on the dance floor and our guests were right there with us. They played the perfect mix of songs based on our requests and the crowd and so many people commented how exceptional the band was. Everyone was dancing. Adam Michaels was so helpful and responsive throughout the process! He worked with us to get the perfect combination within our budget and also included a jazz trio for happy hour. He responded to all requests immediately, no matter how big or small, and generally made us feel like we were in such great hands throughout the time leading up to the event. I highly recommend Around Town Entertainment and the After Party Band!

We were so impressed with Adam and Elsa during our initial meeting that we booked them on the spot! We worked with Adam up until the day of the wedding (he's the head of the company) and he was very professional and amazing to work with throughout the planning process!! Seriously, a couple's dream vendor.

Oh and Elsa!! She was wonderful! She and the band were so so fabulous on the day of the wedding. They made sure everything happened smoothly and just how we pictured it!! She even let my little sister sing a special song with the band as a gift to us - and was SO wonderful with her! Thank you so much!!

Lots of guests at our wedding were raving about our band - 2 months later we're still getting compliments left and right about how amazing the music was! :) My husband and I recommend Around Town Entertainment to every couple that's looking for the PERFECT band!!

Thank you for everything, Adam and Elsa! We hope to see you at many more weddings in the near future!!!

Best,
Melissa and Jordan Baron

We had Around Town Entertainment play at our wedding and we could not be happier!! Throughout planning, it was such a pleasure to work with Adam. He responded promptly and consistently accommodated our requests. They played wonderful jazz music during our cocktail hour, which created the perfect ambience.

As for the reception, I can't say enough good things. They played non-stop throughout the reception which kept our guests on the dance floor all night. There was a perfect mix of current music and oldies. They followed our requests but also read the crowd perfectly. And, every song sounded fantastic. It was exactly what I wanted for my wedding band and more. My guests kept commenting on how much they enjoyed the music.

If you want a fun band that keeps your dance floor full and is extremely reliable, then I highly recommend Around Town! Thank you for helping to make our wedding such a blast!

The A-list Band with Around Town entertainment literally MADE the wedding. Their music kept people on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG. It was our goal to have an epic dance party for our wedding and that is certainly what we got. The band was perfect......played every song (even obscure arrangements of certain special songs) impeccably, looked fabulous, and had a ton of energy to keep everyone on their feet.

I wish I could have them play my wedding EVERY WEEKEND!

We had Around Town play at our wedding in July on Long Island. They were very easy to work with, had a huge knowledge base, arrived early, and were beyond nice and friendly. The manager Adam was professional and so responsive to our emails/phone calls! Our one request was to keep everyone dancing and they did not disappoint!! The music was amazing and 2 1/2 months later people are still talking about how wonderful they were. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to have the best band play their wedding!! :-)
