Golem is the best wedding band. To me what sets Golem apart is that they produce their own CDs, write original music, and play gigs around the country as well as internationally so they're musicians that really gel on stage and enjoy what they're doing.

They have a sound and vibe and their repertoire fits this. The bands leader, Annette, was great to work with and provided us with suggestions for the processional and first dance.

They kept people on the dance floor all night long and our wedding was a Sunday night! One of the best moments was at the end when Golem played their last song and all of our friends started shouting "one more song!" And they did an encore for us! They're just all around a very cool, very fun band!

Golem is by far the best wedding band I've ever heard/seen. They have the right balance of quirkiness, original music, cover songs that appeal to all generations, energy and personality. We had a Jewish wedding, which they do SO well, but I would recommend them for non-Jewish weddings too. They played our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. If you want a wedding where your guests will be on their feet constantly, choose Golem. We've received so many compliments on Golem from our guests - young and old. Our guests are still raving about them, and it's been 2 months since our wedding day.

If you are looking for a band for your wedding and you want one that will induce a dance party that doesn't stop, Golem is it. They were absolutely phenomenal at our wedding, and we heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests, photographers and the staff at our venue. Reasonably priced and fabulous to work with, Golem made the event.

Although Golem plays punk/hipster klezmer music in concert (and is awesome), my husband and I are not Jewish and our wedding guests were a mix of New Englanders, Oklahomans and New Yorkers -- some Christian, some Jewish, some neither, both young and old. Annette, Golem's band leader, had no problem weaving together Golem's original music with rock, big band and country covers that appealed directly to our guests. There was not a single guest who did not get out on the dance floor. In fact, we had a hard time ending the party because everyone wanted to keep dancing. Annette is a true professional and easy and fun to work with during the entire wedding process. Check out their website and talk to Annette. From their wedding repertoire, she will figure out a musical selection perfect for you. And their electric guitarist is awesome.
