ETA music is an incredible band. People RAVED about the music at my wedding. My husband and I were nervous because the lead male singer was away, but we still booked with ETA and the lead male singer who substituted blew us away. He had an AMAZING voice. The entire band was incredible. My family and I are big on music and sound quality. We have been to weddings where you can't hear the ceremony (they did the sound and music at my ceremony) or the speeches. Everyone was able to hear everything. They are a band I would recommend seeing live if you can, they are all so musically talented. Music was a huge factor for our wedding and ETA gave us everything we wanted and more!

We love music, love to dance and sought a band that was professional, engaging, sophisticated and of course, musically talented. ETA delivered above and beyond in all areas. This group truly is the premier wedding band in Connecticut. Their management is responsive, accommodating and offers excellent advice on how to best structure your evening including cocktail hour, dances, intros of the wedding party, breaks and the end of the night finale. Their musicians were a pleasure to work with and truly masters at their craft. My husband and I were repeatedly struck by their seamless transitions from song to song and believe this contributed to the constant and energetic presence of our guests on the dance floor. Many of our guests were musical performers and ETA managed to wow them. One of the most frequently received pieces of feedback from our wedding guests is the quality of the band.

If you are a music lover and want to offer your guests something incredibly special, choose ETA. You will not regret your decision.

Susan, Rocco, and the rest of Eta,

Your band made my reception. Everyone keeps on coming up and remarking on your talent and asking where I found you! From the beginning Susan was always so responsive answering questions quickly, everyone was so accommodating learning special songs, and you always knew what to play to keep the dance floor packed! The one thing I really wanted for my wedding was a top notch band and you did not disappoint! You truly are full of talent, and I could not have asked for a better band and a better experience! I can't wait to see and hear you play again!!!!!!! Thank you so so much from the bottom of my heart for making my wedding unforgettable.

I used ETA as the band for my wedding and couldn't be happier with my choice. During our search for a band for our wedding we contacted just about every band in CT and requested sample music, etc. Since we are a younger couple, it was really important to us to find a band that was able to sing music that is on the radio today really well. We heard some bands that were able to sing older songs fabulously but then when it came to more modern music it was completely awful. We ended up settling on ETA because we thought they did the best job singing BOTH oldies and modern day music. Their quality of singing, performing, and instrument playing is way beyond any typical wedding band. We received compliment after compliment about how good the band was- everyone was wondering where we found them. With their extreme talent and professionalism set aside, they were also extremely easy to work with. They were very easy to get a hold and always answered any questions that I had very promptly. They have a very handy online wedding planner that you will get access to a couple months before the wedding. You enter all your wedding party information, first dance songs, parent dance songs, ceremony music (if you are using them for it, which I highly recommend), etc. all in one easy place that is also very easy to go back and edit whenever needed. This is also where they give you their complete song list and you can check off if there are any songs you don't want them to sing or any that you really want them to sing. I really do suggest leaving as many songs as possible on the list. The band is really good at reading the crowd and get a good sense of what type of music your guests like really quickly. There is no need to waste too much time making a strict play list. They also set up a quick phone meeting the week of the wedding to go over everything one last time which really eases your nerves. I would recommend them to anyone.

ETA performed not only the music for the reception but we also had them perform during the ceremony and cocktail hour. They were incredible. Their song list is so extensive and they really pay attention to the flow of the evening and got everyone up and dancing. They are also very easy to work with and did an amazing job especially when it came to learning our first dance song. We received so many compliments on how great the band was. I can't say enough great things about them.

ETA is the best band in the area. They played my wedding, providing music for the ceremony and the reception. They get everyone up and dancing and I still get rave reviews about how great they were and how much fun everyone had at our wedding. From the behind the scenes point of view they executed our timeline perfectly, they were a dream to work with from signing the contract through planning the music for the evening.

I have reccomended ETA without reservation to many people who have had the same great feedback. Book them. You will be really glad that you did!

ETA music truly made our wedding reception the most amazing celebration we could have ever asked for! The band had our guests on the dance floor almost immediately and knew exactly which songs would keep everyone out there and get all our guests from friends to grandparents dancing!

What a phenomenal job! The music didn't stop the entire night, and neither did the dancing! They were willing to learn new songs (even for our ceremony). People who NEVER dance were dancing ALL night, and we have the band to thank for that. They were extremely easy to contact and were very quick to respond to our questions right away. The band definitely had a huge impact on the extraordinary celebration we had at our wedding. We cannot say enough about the band. Truly talented musicians that clearly enjoy what they do!!!

ETA was incredible at my wedding! We had heard them at a bar and then a wedding previously and decided that with their sound and their pricing, they were perfect for us. They were very easy to work with, allowed us to request a few songs they didn’t have already in their repertoire, and did a great job MCing the wedding & keeping everyone dancing. We requested them to play a salsa song for us to dance to, however the original tempo was too fast for us. They asked us if we’d like to rehearse a little at the end of cocktail hour. That was perfect for us to tell them the tempo we liked and how long to make the song. We got many compliments about the band and know one person at our wedding who is also going to use them for hers in a few months!

They were also very flexible and were willing to learn new songs chosen for our first dance, mother-son dance, etc. They also did a WONDERFUL hoorah! We recieved so many compliments on ETA, and qute a few guests took their card. What a great choice!

At first I was worried bc i've actually never seen the band perform at an actual wedding, but i went to see them perform at Old Post Tavern and The Goose, which was good but didn't blow my mind YET, so on the wedding day not only did they BLOW me and my husband away, but all of our guests'!!! Everyone danced till 1 AM, I HIGHLY recommend them. I must've exchanged millions of emails back and forth with Susan, who was always prompt but the DELIVERED!!

eta was AMAZING! We had the best wedding ever and it was definitely largely due to eta's talent! The band did an awesome job accommodating all of our requests (on our pre-wedding online worksheet), and the music was perfect. The pianist did an awesome job with the ceremony music and learned a unique song for the processional and recessional. The pianist was also so sweet to our nephew, as he had many questions for him pre-ceremony :) We wanted many more fast than slow songs, and they did an awesome job playing all of the slow songs pre-dinner, and the fast/fun songs after dinner. Again, they went above-and-beyond by learning a special song for our first dance (my husband surprised me :). Everyone enjoyed our nice, long hora. My husband was in charge of the band, and he worked closely with Susan who was flexible, sweet, and very accommodating. eta made our wedding incredible - the dance floor was packed, people said it was the best party of their lives, and we all had a blast! Thank you, eta!!

I can't say enough about these guys (and gals)! ETA Music was easily the best part of the wedding. They had every person in the house dancing from start to finish. They even supplied us with a sax and keyboardist for our cocktail hour which really helped set the mood for the rest of the night.

Best of all, they were easy to work with. Susan was very organized and responsive. Thanks again, ETA!

First, let me say that we were not going to have a band at our reception... Then we heard ETA at The Loft in South Norwalk... We knew right then we had to have ETA at our reception... Outstanding would be the understatement of the century to describe the performance of ETA at our reception... All our guests keep asking about the band and raving about their performance... We would highly recommend them to anyone for a wedding!

If you want to have a blast at your wedding then this is the band you have to book. ETA is awesome! My guests, and my husband and I danced all night long. It was so great that my family members started getting on tables to dance because we were having such a good time. I really could not be happier with ETA. They kept that party going! The music can make or break a wedding, so if you want to ensure the best wedding ever then book with ETA. I think all of my guests told me that my wedding was the best wedding they had ever been to, and I credit that to the band.

ETA played for my daughter's wedding in Connecticut last June and they were fantastic! They exceeded our expectations and I would recommend them without hesitation. The morning after the wedding we had a call from a guest requesting information so they could book them for their daughter's wedding. Most of the guests at the wedding were in their 20's and 30's from NYC and had been to many weddings and we still got amazing feedback about the band.

We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this band. Finding a band was one of the wedding jobs that my (now) husband volunteered to do, and once he heard this band play, he stopped looking and hired them immediately!

Throughout the planning process the band and manager were responsive to our e-mails, helpful and flexible. They kept us calm, assuring us that they knew what they were doing, and they sure did.

We were absolutely delighted by ETA at our wedding. They learned our first dance song and sung it wonderfully. Then they played a great mix of classic wedding songs and contemporary hits. All night long we had guests coming up to us saying, "I can't believe they can cover X song!" We were on the dance floor, our guests were on the dance floor and we were all disappointed when the night had to end.

The best part is... the price for this band is very reasonable for the area. We've attended a lot of weddings with $10k and up bands, and ETA was better than all of them. We will (and already have) happily recommend them to all of our friends!

ETA was recommended to me by a dear friend and they were hands down one of THE best elements of our day! We planned our wedding from across the country & relied on recommendations from friends & reviews. Rocky & his band got our guests up & dancing right from the start and continued through the evening. Susan was extremely helpful getting everything lined up beforehand and very responsive. We've since recommended them to friends and were at a wedding recently where they performed. Highly recommend!!

Honestly, they made my wedding day. I can't say enough about how amazing they were. I originally didn't want a band because I was worried they wouldn't be able to play the music that I like. But after hearing their samples on their website, I was hooked, and I let my grandmother win. But it was a win win for both of us because they were so incredible!

Thank you ETA for making my wedding day the best it could be! Music was probably the most important element I focused the most on when planning my wedding. I carefully selected the compositions and instruments in the church and was looking for a high energy band that would really bring life to our wedding reception. I found ETA on the internet and then went to see them at a bar in Bridgeport based on their positive reviews. I couldn't be happier with the decision to book them for my wedding. They were absolutely fantastic and had everyone moving and grooving the whole evening. They played the perfect blend of current music and old favorites and honored all our requests for special songs. Both the female and male vocalist and the sax, keyboard, guitar - everyone were outstanding. (We booked their alternate male lead vocalist due to the regular lead being unavailable and he was perfect- even have a pic of him arm and arm singing with my Dad! ).Susan, the booking agent was very helpful throughout and especially the week leading up to the wedding. My parents, relatives and friends danced the whole night long and kept remarking that the band was amazing! People are still telling me how much fun they had at the wedding because of the music and my friend is even planning on booking ETA for her wedding next year.

From beginning to end and top to bottom, ETA music was the best! The booking process was easy and convenient and the pricing was super competitive. Beyond that, they were the best wedding band that we've ever had the pleasure of experiencing! From our dinner music- which was classy and elegant- to the reception- which had every.single.guest. on their feet- from the first note to the last dance the band was beyond any of our expectations! We had an absolute blast our wedding night and we 100% attribute it to the energy, talent, professionalism and awesomeness of the band and their two singers.

ETA Music was the pinnacle of our wedding night- we cannot say enough good things about them or recommend them to enough people. In fact, our best friends booked them THAT NIGHT for their wedding in April. They were just that good!

Book them, it will be the best decision you make for your special day!

ETA provided the ceremony music, cocktail hour music, and reception music for my wedding. They are a fantastic band with a HUGE set list. They had everyone on the dance floor all night and played a great variety of music. We got so many compliments & had so many guests asking for their info. They really made the wedding an amazing party which was exactly what we wanted.

We had 2 hiccups that I wasn't thrilled about. The first had to do with our ceremony music. We had an outdoor wedding and requested acoustic guitar. Our rain plan was a tent and we needed it as it down poured for our ceremony. I had asked the band's manager, Susan, if amplification was needed for the guitar. She had told me no, but as it turns out it was needed. Our friends and family's voices were louder than the guitar & as far as I'm concerned, our ceremony music was nonexistent (which we paid extra for).

The second was that there was a lack of communication between the band manager and the band. I discussed with Susan bringing a CD to be played during the dinner break. On the day-of, the band didn't come with a CD player. They also didn't have the line-up with everyone's names for introductions, the bouquet toss was forgotten about, and one of the songs that I specifically requested (and we only specifically requested 4 songs) was forgotten about. After the band did the last song, I had to ask the band to play what I requested to be the last song which they did.

I have told Susan about these hiccups which she did apologize for, but for the amount of money we spent on the band - I wouldn't have expected these errors to occur. I think that if I dealt with them directly instead of having to do through Susan, these errors wouldn't have occurred.

All in all, they are an excellent band and did a fantastic job and I would use them again/refer them to a friend. Other than the ceremony music, I doubt any of our guests noticed the issues that I occurred.

I heard ETA play at a fundraiser last year and knew they were on the "short list" when I went searching for a great wedding band. I am a musician so probably more critical than most but I couldn't believe how many bands were posting video clips with bad singers and sloppy intonation. However, ETA did not disappoint! Margaret was pitch perfect singing "At Last" at our first dance and their harmonies really showcased their dedication and skill. Their versatility also sets them apart. The combination of different instruments and several different singers means they can play many different kinds of music and keep the party hopping! I also appreciated their professionalism and flexibility when it came to meeting my budget and keeping in touch! I chose to add a sax player and it really boosted the sound. Worth every penny! Our dance floor was packed the entire night. We heard them at another wedding a few weeks later and they jammed that night too! Consistently great sound and very easy to work with! Thanks ETA!!

Best wedding band ever. The music was fantastic - everyone was always up and dancing within what seemed like seconds of the band beginning to play. Vocals were stunning (I can't repeat the comments from my guests, as I think the website might edit for graphic language). There was no problem with learning new songs for the special dances, and their general song list was very up-to-date. My only criticism was that the band had double-booked events for the day and so had to end our event a bit early and exactly on schedule, despite the whole reception having started a bit late.

We are so happy that the client thought that we were "the best band ever", that "guests were always up and dancing" from right when we began to play, that we learned new songs for her special dances, that the vocals were "stunning" and that the guests were extremely complimentary of the band.
The band was contracted from 1:00-5:00 and actually played until 5:15 to accommodate the client and the event planners last minute time change. As stated the band ended exactly on schedule, despite the whole reception starting a bit late. We thank the client for the opportunity and hope that all the positives far outweigh something that was clearly out of the bands control.

There's not question about it- ETA is an excellent band. All of the musicians are talented. The music is great and the singers can really get guests on the dance floor. My issue with ETA is that they took a break at a bad time. I was ready to dance and guests were getting antsy. I wanted the dancing to start up again, but the band was on a break. Of course, a band should have a break. However, The band had an hour break before the reception. The ceremony and the first 30 minutes of the reception were performed by another musician, so ETA only needed to play for part of the reception. I was still paying them full price for the whole evening, so I expected that they would take the break. Nevertheless, I would still recommend ETA. I would just be sure to speak to them about breaks BEFORE the event to be on the same page.

eta music responded with the following comments:

We appreciate this clients recommendation of eta music and we were glad to be a part of such a special event.

We worked very closely with this bride because it was an Orthodox Jewish wedding and there are many traditional rituals. The band was there the entire time , allowing the Israeli musicians not only to use our equipment but help them set up and stood by them during their performance to make sure that all their needs were accommodated. The band followed the caterer's cues for all of the timing. Out of the band's control, the prayer called the Sheva Brachot,(7 blessings) also known as the benching, brought everyone outside for more than a half hour with an hour left in the wedding reception. The band began playing immediately as soon as the guests starting coming in and the reception was over shortly after.

We always encourage a timeline of scheduled events so that we can meet all expectations.

Eta is a talented wedding band who will keep the party jumping!! My frustration was with them not following through on promises...such as claiming certain people were going to play on our wedding day, and having alternative people instead. This is a very common problem with the wedding band industry, so I suggest if you are going to hire any band for your wedding, that you get all of your promises on paper in a contract. Also you may want to be clear about how many breaks your band is allowed to take. Other than that they were a lot of fun...even if they didn't stick to our hand selected playlist of songs...

We take a lot of pride in the open lines of communications with all of our clients. We are very surprised and disappointed to read this clients review (and more than 6 months after the wedding reception.) We work closely with all of our clients on every detail and all that goes into making a great event. As stated in this review, we kept the crowd jumping and the client and guests seemed very pleased. We made every effort to meet the couples needs with regards to budget concerns, song selection, musicianship and timing. We have had an impeccable track record over the past twenty years and approach every event with the highest standards.
