I was referred to John and his band, Current Affair by my cousin who attended a wedding which they played. Not having heard them myself, I was a little skeptical at first, even upon our meeting with John when he assured me that they can play almost any song which is requested, I was doubtful a live band would be able to reproduce exactly and play certain songs (some EDM songs) which were in our songlist. Boy, was I ever wrong!!
Current Affair Music is probably the best live band I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. This sentiment was expressed not only by me, but by plenty of my guests as well. My fiance and I are so glad we went with Current Affair Music over a DJ or any other band. The richness of the instruments and vocals of a live band made our reception even more special and elegant. They made our wedding even more special. His singers hit every note perfectly, at times I thought I was listening to the actual artist! I will definitely be recommending John and his band to any of my friends who are planning a wedding.

Highly recommend Current Affair Music for your wedding!

The entire band was amazing and they were a huge hit with the whole crowd! I cannot overstate how pleased we were with their performance and dealing with them leading up to the reception. We would very strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a talented band with a broad range of songs in their catalog.

We opted for the 9 piece ensemble for the evening and it was worth every penny for what the horns brought to the table.

Their performance of "The Prayer" was incredible, more eyes on the lead vocals than the mother/groom dance going on!

I do not even know where to begin with the AMAZINGLY GOOD things I want to say about this band. We hired Current Affair based solely on a recommendation by selective list provided by our reception venue. We listened to their music on their website, I emailed John (the first of many friendly, responsive emails), and that was it. Done. Hiring Current Affair was by far one of the BEST decisions we made for our wedding day. I am not lying when I tell you I have seen facebook comments saying "We heard your band downstairs (there was another wedding at our venue on the same night) and we came upstairs just o hear them!" John Napolitano is the essence of class, and did everything my fiance and I asked. I remember saying to John that all we wanted was for our guests to dance the night away. Let me tell you...he did not disapoint. Our guests danced the night away and are still asking about "the band at your wedding!" There are several reasons I would love to replay our wedding day, but one of the top reasons is so that I can hear John and this band play again. They are that good. If you are getting married, I PROMISE you that choosing Current Affair will be one of the BEST decisions of your life.

After seeing A Current Affair play in 2007, I knew immediately that when the time came I would want them at my wedding. With such a strong first impression, I had very high expectations for A Current Affair and John and the band did not disappoint! They personalized our ceremony music by using classic string instruments to play our favorite modern songs. The jazz trio at the cocktail hour created a sophisticated atmosphere and most importantly the 12-piece band at the reception rocked the house!! Our wedding was an incredible, non-stop party, and months later our guests still can't stop talking about our amazing band. Throughout the entire evening the musical entertainment was of the highest caliber in sound, performance quality, and repertoire. Simply put--they are the best!

Unbelievable band. They rehearsed and played our wedding song with only a few days notice! To this day, I can't stop hearing how amazing they were! I have seen them play at events and having them be part of the day was great. I highly recommend that you snatch them for your wedding and/or event!

This people are ridiculously talented! If you want a high quality band for your wedding, then you have to get these guys. They will learn anything you want and stick to the genres and playlist you want. I had the 9 piece band for my wedding and it sounded awesome. Every one of my guests could not stop raving about them. They have an amazing variety of genres and songs to play, so no one will be left disappointed. Would book them again in a second. Worth every cent!!!!
