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!

Perfect!!!!! These guys are the most talented group of musicians you would ever find in this industry. We got married over 6 weeks ago, and all 150 guests are still complementing the band and in awe of their sound. The dance floor was PACKED All night, and they were able to meet our needs of each and every song we wanted to hear. We couldn't be happier, and can't wait to see them again at one of our friend's weddings!

John and crew are amazing. I rushed to secure them without hesitation after setting a date, as they left such am impression on my from a wedding I attended five years ago. Our reception was a blast thanks to John and his team of talented musicians. The dance floor was always packed, and their selections were on point in keeping all generations grooving. Incredibly professional and responsive, top notch talent. Thank you!

I was surprised to receive so many compliments from guests about the band.
Nothing but superlatives from everyone.
The band makes the party and in this case it was over the top.
Bride and groom were more than pleased and grateful.

They are a first rate band. When they play a song it sounds like the song and not a band trying to sound like the record. When you are dealing with many vendors as you plan a wedding you thank God for someone like John Napolitano who communicates with you whenever you need to. Everyone was up dancing through the wedding and our guests cannot stop talking about them and how fantastic they were. They really made the wedding spectacular. Not only did John and Current Affair provide the music for the reception but he made like easier for us by providing great music for the Ceremony and cocktails part as well. Everyone that was at the wedding wants to do it again just so they can hear them.

I can't say enough about this incredible band! They just performed for me a the Waldorf Astoria this past weekend and kept the party going all night. Everyone was dancing, all ages, and their range of songs is incredible. If you are looking for a fun, talented, reliable, and easy to work with band, I highly recommend them, they will make your night one to remember!

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!
