Book them... NOW! I 110% recommend this amazing, talented group to be included in your wedding plans. This was our absolute favorite vendor and guest favorite by far. Everyone always says that the band and the food make or break the wedding, so choosing this crew would absolutely make your night an unforgettable one! Multiple friends have already asked for their information to book them for their own weddings. They cater to your musical interests and work with your crowd of any and every age. I don't think one guest was sitting for the entire reception, which was our hope and dream come true. After the last song, the entire dance floor was screaming, "One More Song!". Weeks later, friends and family are STILL talking about our band. Thank you for making our wedding the best day of our lives! I wish I could give more than 5 stars!

Current Affair played at my wedding a few weeks ago (10/1/16), and they were awesome!! Throughout the planning process John was extremely easy, and pleasant to work with - which is always a plus when dealing with vendors. At the wedding they totally exceeded my expectations!! They played everything from current songs to classics AND sounded SO good in everything they played. People were on the dance floor the entire night, and people kept coming up to me saying that the band so awesome (which is always so nice for the bride to hear:) When I talk about the wedding with people now weeks later -- they are still bringing up how good the band was (which is still so nice for the bride to hear!!) They even performed a special request of Drop Kick Murphy's which was AMAZING!! I would 100% recommend Current Affair for a wedding band -- you will be very happy you did!!

Current Affair far exceeded our expectations! From their unwavering commitment to satisfy our wishes to collaborating with other entertainers including singer and DJ they were AWESOME. They played all the current contemporary songs which was important to us considering our crowd was predominantly in their 30's. Their pricing was more than competitive to the other bands we priced out. THIS BAND IS THE WAY TO GO!!

Current Affairs were easy to work with from the beginning. They responded quickly. They were extremely flexible and accommodating. The singer/guitarist at the ceremony was amazing. He joined my brother-in-law for beautiful music together. The procession music for the bridesmaids was dramatic and absolutely beautiful.
At the reception, the band never stopped. Great music continued throughout the reception and everyone danced. Friends that never ever get out of their chair were on the dancefloor. More than one man said the band must be good for me to dance. Friends went to another wedding the following night and called to say nothing could compare to our band. People are still raving about the band.

Current Affair is amazing! So many of our guests commented throughout and after the wedding about how awesome the band was!! They played exactly the type of music we requested (without needing much direction at all) and the dance floor was packed the entire time. The sound quality was perfect. Several people mentioned that the songs were so spot on that they could not believe a real band was playing it, in a good way! Maurice nailed our wedding song, which had a really unique sound. They have a lot of diversity within their singers and are as good at the new hits as they are at the golden oldies. In addition, John was so helpful throughout the entire planning process and made it as easy as possible! Don't hesitate in booking Current Affair!! Choosing them was one of, if not our best, wedding planning decision!

We are SO happy that we chose Current Affair to be our band for our Wedding. Right from the start, John was so approachable leading up to our Wedding day, and we knew that we could trust him and the rest of the band to help make our night perfect. The talent and music truly went beyond our expectations. The dance floor was packed the entire night with our guests of all ages. We had so much fun dancing the night away to their amazing music! It is now a few weeks later, and all of ours guests are still talking about how amazing the band was! Thank your Current Affair!!!

We recently had Current Affair perform at our wedding. I really wish that I had another party to throw just so I could hire Current Affair again. I cannot put into words how absolutely AMAZING they were! First off John Napolitano who heads up the band is just an absolutely great guy. He is super wonderful to work with: kind, polite, responsive and very professional. My husband and I are both entertaining clients and were very selective as we went through the wedding planning process. I thought we did a great job overall. Even so, the thing that stood out to everyone was the band. People were literally on the floor all night long. Since the wedding, I constantly have people asking where I found them and for their contact information.

This band just knows what they are doing! They asked for songs and some guidance from us initially. They played our songs flawlessly but then did such an awesome job of reading the crowd to determine what would resonate. To give you a few other examples, my husband and I had a choreographed dance that included turns, lifts and lifts, We were so nervous that it wouldn't work without the original recording. They never missed a beat- it was unbelievable! During the best man speech, it was mentioned that my husband loves karaoke. John picked up on it and got him singing with the band by the end of the night. It was so perfect!

I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about these guys. Hiring them will be the best decision you make for your wedding!!!

Hiring Current Affair Music for our wedding was absolutely the BEST decision we made. John was an absolute PLEASURE to work with. He was patient, very professional, and extremely responsive. Leading up to the wedding we felt very comfortable and knew we were in great hands. At the wedding, everything they touched was absolute perfection. Not only did we hire the band for the reception but we hired strings for the ceremony as well as a jazz trio for the cocktail hour. The music throughout the wedding was awesome. They played all of our favorite songs (including lots of Billy Joel and even learning a song 2 days before the wedding that we decided we wanted to hear) but also took the lead and knew just how to get everyone on the dance floor. Our guests danced all night and raved endlessly about the band. We had the best night of our life and it was in large part to the great music played and the atmosphere created by Current Affair Music. In particular, our first dance was incredibly important to us and they totally nailed the song and allowed us to be fully immersed in the moment. We cannot say enough good things about Current Affair Music and John Napolitano. We are eagerly awaiting the next event we can hire them for! You cannot go wrong by hiring this band.

We experienced Current Affair at my cousin's wedding, and all I can remember of that night was that I didn't stop dancing. We knew when we got engaged that we needed to have them at our wedding as well, and we are beyond pleased with their performance. John is so easy to work with and quick with responses, and the band is just phenomenal. All night long all (and all day the next day) people raved about how amazing they were, and how much fun they had dancing. They were able to play a wide variety of genres and every song sounded like the original (or better!). Even the staff at our wedding told us they had never had more fun working and that they had all been dancing in the kitchen the whole night. Our wedding was an absolute blast, I could not recommend this band more, they are wonderful!
