Big City was awesome! They had everyone at our wedding on the dance floor all night. To be honest, I was a little nervous because I had never seen them live and no one had seemed to have heard of them before but I am so glad I booked them. They were great the day of the wedding and were also great to work with beforehand. They really took into account our music preferences, learned a new song for us, helped create and coordinate the timeline and really engaged the crowd. I received many compliments during and after the wedding on how much people loved the band.

Amazing band!!! Great song choices---The dance floor was packed all night. Many guests came to us and said how great they are and wanted their information. They made our wedding an incredible and a fun event.

Outstanding band! We booked this band over a year in advance of our daughter's wedding and quite frankly we were nervous because we did not hear or see them in person. Ken Shano and his band exceeded our expectations. The bride and groom are in their early twenties and the guests ranged from ages 7 to 81. Everyone thought the band made the event. People danced from he start of dinner until the last song was played. Ken Skyped with the bride and learned the songs she wanted in addition to the Notre Dame Alma Mater as a tribute to our family. I would highly recommend this band.

This was the second wedding (both daughters) for which we have booked Big City and our expectations were once again exceeded and so were both brides. The dual singers were a big pleasant surprise and the band itself was over the top - rockin' on. All guests felt very well served by the range and quality of music selections and the sound itself. Cocktail hour and dinner music was carefully selected and well executed based on the guidance of the bride. Father/daughter dance music was also spot on thanks to Ken's excellent guidance. It's a good thing the father can dance!

This is the second time that my family has looked to Big City to help celebrate a wedding and I would not have gone in a different direction. I was so lucky that they were available and I have to say, this band is AMAZING! They played all of the music that my husband and I wanted and were very thoughtful in their music selections. They had the ENTIRE 170 person wedding on the dance floor!

To further this review, the band members are the consummate professionals and you can tell that they just love to play music. Thank you so much for making our wedding the best day or our lives!

Ken and the Big City Band rocked the house at our wedding. They sounded amazing and everyone commented that the band made our wedding! They have a huge range of music they can play and they sound great too! They take the time to get to know you and your event so that the evening becomes about you and your guests. They will take the time to learn songs that really mean a lot to you too. I can't recommend them enough. Great people and great musicians! You can't go wrong with this band.

The Big City Wedding Band was simply a pleasure to work with, and most importantly, they have an amazing sound that really complimented our wedding reception. Ken was extremely helpful during the planning process, taking ample time to hear our thoughts about song selection and tactfully advising us about certain musical planning considerations. They packed a ton of great tunes into a short three hours, bringing big excitement and big sound from the first song until the last. I have no doubt that everyone at our wedding was sore the next morning from the amount of dancing they did, all thanks to the Big City Wedding Band. I would absolutely work with them again in the future, and I highly recommend their services.

This is the band you want for your wedding!! The Big City Wedding Band exceeded all of our expectations! From the moment we started working with Ken and his band it was nothing but the utmost professionalism. About two weeks prior to the wedding we had a Skype meeting with Ken to go over the flow of the reception, music selections, and any special requests. As a result our wedding went off without a hitch, all of the introductions, dances (first, father/daughter, and mother/son), and speeches went perfectly. Now for the most important part, this band is simply amazing! This is a truly professional and talented band that knows how to get everyone on the dance floor and keep them there! As a matter of fact, our guests couldn't even wait until after dinner to hit the dance floor. In short, the Big City Wedding Band truly made our wedding amazing, each and every person at our wedding had an absolute blast. We're still getting complements on how much fun our wedding was and I attribute it all to the Big City Wedding Band.
