YOU KILLED IT!! Absolutely knocked it out of the park. We cannot thank you enough for making it such a fun joyous occasion. We are still getting compliments from our guest about how much fun the night was. From the beautiful music at cocktail hour to really getting things started at the reception to the encore. That encore was just perfect. Mike and I felt so special dancing in the circle around our friends and family. People thought we had that planned with you so thank you for ending the night on such a high note. We will recommend you to all! You guys might have some new clients after our wedding! You were all so easy to work with, professional and personalized.
Thank you again for making it the best night of our life. We really hope we can go to another wedding to see you guys!

CTO Park Central was FANTASTIC! Guests were on the dance floor as they entered the reception room - before they sat down! The dance floor was crowded all night with people of all ages. Everyone with whom I spoke commented on the music and how much they enjoyed dancing all night.

The violinist for the ceremony was also exceptional. She strolled up and down the aisle prior to the ceremony and her talent came through to everyone.

There really are no words to describe how AMAZING CTO Park Central was, and how big a part they played in making our wedding the wedding of our dreams! Because we live in NY and our wedding was in NJ, we had focused primarily on NYC bands in our search for wedding music. We went to showcases, we had meetings and viewed Youtube videos, but no band we saw felt like "the one." Finally, one night it occurred to me to search for Philadelphia-based bands, because our venue was about as close to Philly as to New York City. I found CTO, I called and spoke to Angie, and it was just our luck that there was going to be a CTO showcase that weekend, so I dragged my now husband kicking and screaming from NYC to Philly! It turned out to be one of the top two decisions I made during wedding planning! When Gloria came out and sang the a cappella intro to "I Want You Back," I got goosebumps all over! We were so impressed not just by the musical talent of the band, but also their energy and presentation. And even my now husband, who prior to that point was convinced that wedding bands are indistinguishable, was blown away by CTO Park Central and couldn't stop talking about how great they were. I think we booked CTO Park Central the very next day. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Gloria was awesome! We had a conference call to go over everything, and also exchanged e-mails about details. The band learned several special songs for our wedding, none of which were on its song list. At the wedding, CTO Park Central was ON FIRE! They kept our dance floor packed all night, and now almost a month later, all of our guests are still talking about how amazing our band was, how they never took a break, and how it was the BEST wedding band they'd ever seen! I was over a friend's house last week and spotted a CTO business card on their table, and I'm sure they weren't the only ones who requested one! Gloria and the entire band were absolutely incredible! Thanks for the best party ever!

Words cannot describe how amazing CTO Tribeca is. We had the pleasure of working with Maylyn who helped guide us through the process of song selection and run of show. We wanted our wedding to be a big dance party and CTO Tribeca translated our vision into a reality. CTO Tribeca had everyone on the dance floor the entire night, and one of the things people remember most from your wedding is the music. A highlight for us was when Maylyn came onto the dance floor to perform during one of the songs – it really allowed the guests to connect with the band and created a wonderful memory! My family had the pleasure of working with CTO Tribeca previously for my sister’s wedding so we knew just how great the are! Maylyn made us feel so special and made our wedding memorable not only for us but also for our guests. We highly recommend CTO Tribeca.

Thank you CTO Tribeca for being the best wedding band I could have ever hoped for! I knew you guys were going to be amazing but you were above and beyond those expectations! You were so accommodating and did everything perfectly. Weddings can be stressful, but Maylyn and CTO Tribeca handled everything beautifully and allowed me to enjoy every bit of our reception. Every person I have spoken to has mentioned how awesome our band was. You guys even made the flower girls' day by coming off stage and letting them sing along with you...they loved that! Thank you for making an already special day even more incredible!

Our wedding day was perfect and our band CTO Grand Central played a big part in that! The band was so great to work with and they are clearly passionate for what they do. We got so many compliments on how great they were and how much fun our guests had. The band has a little bit of a different sound and style from most of the other wedding bands you have probably seen and heard which is just another reason I would highly recommend booking this group. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

We booked Midtown Express for our wedding and they were absolutely outstanding! The band (along with an open bar) were the two main priorities of our wedding. Our main goal for our wedding was to have everyone up and dancing the whole night (including ourselves) and Midtown Express beyond exceeded our goal. We and all our guests were boogin' all night long (even before we were introduced) just as we hoped for. My feet killed for days. Midtown Express did such a phenomenal job, I can't count how many people came up to us the night of and days after saying how amazing the band was. If you want to have exceptionally talented musicians and singers keeping your guests dancing all night and make your wedding an extraordinary affair than you need to book Midtown Express.

We hired Midtown Express from the CTO group to play our wedding and it was the best decision we made regarding our wedding planning!!! Virgil and his band were FANTASTIC. All of our guests raved about the amazing music selections and the high energy of the band. Not to mention, the insane talent of the singers! The woman that sang literally sounded like Whitney Houston. One of my guests thought we booked a DJ until they saw the band play - they were really that good! I would HIGHLY recommend CTO, especially Midtown Express. It was worth every penny!!!

We had CTO Grand Central at our wedding and from the moment we first heard their showcase we knew they were the band for us! They sounded amazing and we could not have signed them quicker! The band leader, Martin was a pleasure to work with. He was great via text, phones and email! He spent many hours with me making sure the details were all perfect as we had discussed - he really was extremely patient and kind! The band learned a few songs for us, including our first dance and they even sent us a recording of it so that we could practice to their version. They were the biggest hit at our wedding - everyone was raving about how great they were. They made the night so much fun- we were so happy that we picked them!!!! I would recommend grand central to anyone looking for a band that will keep your entire guest count dancing all night long!!
