Victor and all of the musicians of Manhattan City Music were incredibly talented, attentive to our requests, and professional in all of our interactions! They set the tone for an outstanding wedding celebration where tables were empty and the dance floor was packed for the entire evening! So many people offered overwhelming compliments--we couldn't have been more pleased!

I have never seen any band command the stage and pick the right songs for the right moment like Manhattan City Music. My guests were so impressed with the band that everyone stayed till the very end because they did not want the night to end. They kept shouting, "One more song!!" These guys know what they are doing.

Working with Victor Lesser/ Manhattan City Music was an absolutely amazing experience. The entertainment is one of the most important decisions of the wedding and we were not disappointed! Victor is so professional, kind, and talented and makes sure to deliver YOUR style of music! We met several times before the wedding to discuss songs and in the end, I just ended up giving him a few songs and allowed him to choose the rest. Putting my faith in him, he delivered and exceeded my expectations. My husband and I had our reception at the Harvard Club and the entertainment was so classy and fit the atmosphere perfectly. Victor played the piano during cocktail hour and even played saxophone for some of the reception. Manhattan City Music is amazing and I would HIGHLY recommend them!

Victor provided both DJ services and live music for the ceremony and reception. He did an incredible job. The entire process was very easy and Victor took care to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. The ceremony music was wonderful and he played live flute that was beautiful. During the cocktail hour he played some nice Jazz music. For our reception he play a great mix of music that hit all of our favorite genres. He also did some well timed live signing and saxophone that just made it an unforgettable party! He has a knack for getting everyone on the dance floor. Even the parents were dancing all night and all of our guests said he was amazing. I highly recommend Victor and his company for your wedding!

Manhattan City Music and Victor were amazing to work with. The music literally made our wedding. It's been over a year, and when we see friends and family, they still say that the band was the best they have ever heard. If you are looking to book an event, look no further- this is your band! The band was able to sing and play a wide variety of music with many singers for a variety of sounds. Our guests, young and old, loved Manhattan City Music!

My experience with Manhattan City Music was terrific. Victor and his band are very talented. My guests raved about the music and he played songs for all age groups. I gave the band 2 songs to learn for the father/daughter and bride/groom dance and they tried their best but some of the words were incorrect. I recommend choosing songs that they are familiar with playing.

Again, the guests danced the whole time and I appreciated his prompt attention and helpful recommendations during the wedding planning. You will definitely have a special wedding if you use this band!

Victor was an absolute pleasure to work with from the day we met all the way through the wedding. He completely understood our desires for different sounds throughout the parts of the night and his band kept people on the dance floor until the venue was kicking us out! Can't recommend highly enough--the pictures of my grandmother dancing with "Michael Jackson" are worth the price alone! Our absolute and eternal gratitude for the party of a lifetime!

Victor Lesser and Manhattan City Music were such a pleasure to work with. Through his services we used photography and music. He accommodated all of our needs and concerns, making sure we got exactly what we were looking for. It made the process so stress relieving. The photography was tasteful and the band was so talented. They got everyone on their feet for the night. I would recommend Manhattan City Music to any couple.

My husband and I got married at the Maritime Parc on 9/18. Victor Lesser and his band did a terrific job on the day of. They kept the party moving and Victor is a terrific band leader. We got great reviews from our guests.

One thing of note - we gave the band sheet music for a specific song that my dad and I were going to dance to in MARCH. When it came to the song, the female singer did not know the words and she messed up the song. We were disappointed about this, especially when we gave them ample time to learn it.
