The live video in our video section is a wedding at the Poughkeepsie tennis club in Poughkeepsie NY. The video is far from perfect but the Idea is to show you typical crowd reaction to Common Ground at a real wedding reception. The sound is recorded through a high end Allen and Heath mixing console and the video is through a Zoom HDQ3 plugged into the console. We realize the Video is a little rough but the sound came out better then expected. Read less

I cannot begin to express how highly I recommend Common Ground. I know I might be biased since they were my wedding band, but they are the BEST wedding band that I have ever heard. First of all, the band went above and beyond to learn every single one of our songs before the wedding (entrance, mother/son, father/daughter, etc.) and they were absolutely amazing on every single one. On top of that, their playlist is fantastic. They have such an incredible range of genres that they play…there was truly something for everyone at the wedding. Beyond being amazing musicians, the band knows how to get the party started and keeping the party going! We had SO many of our guests come up to us at the wedding and after the wedding to rave about how amazing the band was. Really couldn’t not have been happier with Common Ground and there is not one criticism we could possibly give. I would recommend them to anyone for their wedding. They are amazing!!

I cannot speak highly enough about Common Ground. They played at my wedding about a month ago and they were fantastic. During the wedding, after the wedding, people kept coming up to me and saying how awesome the band was. It's hard to cover both the classics and more modern pop stuff and they were able to do it all. The quality of their music and their energy kept people dancing the whole night. People were begging them to keep playing when their time was up. I cannot thank them enough for making my wedding so successful. I highly recommend this group to anyone looking to have a great time at their event.

Common Ground All Star Orchestra band played at our farm wedding last weekend. We absolutely loved them! It was important to us that we find a band that could play a variety of music- a little bit of country for me, a little bit of Journey for my husband, and a little bit of Katy Perry for our guests. Common Ground could play it all! They were fantastic. They even learned an Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros song for us, which is what we requested for our first dance. Throughout the night everyone kept saying, "They sound JUST like the original!" It was actually quite impressive. Everyone danced the night away and had a fantastic time- including my husband's parents, who apparently have never before danced at a wedding.

The only reason I gave them 4 stars on responsiveness is because the email communication wasn't the best. As a bride-to-be, I had several questions and details that I wanted to confirm prior to the event. I think the band is super busy, and therefore is only able to send short, quick replies. That being said, their service the day of was wonderful.

We hope to throw an anniversary party in the future, and will of course be booking Common Ground again for that!
