We can’t thank Rich and The New York Edge enough for the AMAZING music at our wedding. The dance floor was packed all night and our guests loved their music!

Right from the start, Rich was so responsive, wonderful to work with, and made the wedding planning fun. Rich gave great insights on the cadence of the night, and every suggestion was spot on. Most importantly though, the band was truly talented and we are most appreciative they were able to make our wedding so incredible! We received tons of compliments from friends and family during the wedding and we are still hearing about how amazing they were weeks later (and still recovering from all of the dancing)! Our guests keep saying they were the best band they’ve ever heard!

The New York Edge helped make this the wedding of our dreams!

WOW WOW WOW! That pretty much sums up NY EDGE. They were amazing for our wedding!
My mom was pressuring me that it was not good that I did not have a "word of mouth" recommendation for the band in our wedding. When we met with Rich from NY EDGE, we just wanted to sign the contract immediately. It was an instant connection and he just made us feel 100% comfortable and confident with NY EDGE.
If you are questioning who to chose for your wedding band, please don't second guess yourself anymore, NY EDGE is the best (if you love to dance, sing and have the time of your life with all your favorite people in the world!)
Rich always made time to talk to us throughout our engagement whenever we had a little question or concern. When we got closer to the day we had another meeting and he walked us through the day and all the plans etc. We did not have to give him a do/do not play list. I trusted Rich as the expert and he knew exactly what was working with the crowd and when it needed to be changed. One of my best friends said that it was the best beginning of a wedding she'd every been to. Our first dance led into everyone dancing for a solid 5 minute dance party.
THere was not a dry body in the house, thats proof of a solid party!
We had an 8 piece band and do not regret a single second of the night largely due to the awesome band NY EDGE!

From our initial meeting Rich & the New York Edge Band filled us with confidence that they would make our wedding a memorable and special evening! They delivered, 100%! From the Jazz standards during cocktail hour, to an epic Horah (15 minutes long!), to Canadian rock n' roll, to a beautiful Mezinka and finally to our specially requested final song (A Perfect Day), the band exceeded all expectations.

New York Edge's performance called our guests to the dance floor and kept them there for hours. Your interaction with individual guests was a fantastic surprise - we will not soon forget the sing alongs and air guitars. The music was infectious! Throughout the night, and even now, one month later, people marvel at how many of ours guests, young and old, were dancing and enjoying themselves.

New York Edge is a phenomenal band! They were the icing on our cake at our wedding and we couldn’t imagine a more spectacular, rockin, and upbeat performance. We still receive so many compliments from our guests about NY Edge. And the band’s experience and greatness showed at our wedding reception by keeping our guests on the dance floor- we even opted to extend our night because they were that great! This band does it right. They appealed to our guests by playing a variety of songs as well as singing and interacting with our guests on the dance floor. They pumped up the energy of our reception!
We found NY Edge by researching reviews on wedding sites. Music was a top three component of our wedding and we wanted to make sure we found the right band. We sat down with Rich and listened to clips of songs and right there, we were confident that he was not going to disappoint and booked him immediately. We didn’t even feel the need to give him a list of must play songs. Rich was so easy to talk to and work with. He responded to our calls and emails right away and took the time to coordinate his music to our ceremony and reception schedules. We did have one request for the end of our night to play a certain song and not only did the band nail it, but the way they transitioned into it had everyone on their feet! The talent, energy, professionalism, and consideration of NY Edge goes unmatched and we highly recommend this band!

One month out from our wedding and our guests are still raving about our band! From my first encounter with Rich he was open, honest and willing to work with us. I had seen them perform at a wedding years prior and always remembered a man with a guitar dancing in the crowd, and I said "I want that!" He exceeded all my expectations. Through out the night if I had a specific song request, he listened and played them at the right time. My friends and family were dancing all night and my favorite part was when members of the band danced and sang along with us. NY Edge was a HUGE ASSET to my wedding night. I wouldn't have changed a thing. I am so happy I decided to go with the full 12 piece band and I can't thank Rich enough.

Dear Rich,

Thank you for making our reception on Saturday night in Old Saybrook an EPIC EVENT!

We had a wonderful time and based upon the feed back from our friends and family, so did every one else.

We all had high expectations for the NY Edge coming into the event and we were ecstatic that the band surprised all of us by exceeding those expectations! The party totally ROCKED!

We hope you had a fun time joining the crowd and seeing some familiar faces.

Thanks again for making our wedding reception a special event. We will continue to recommend the NY Edge to our friends and family for future events.

Rich,

Saturday night was one of the most magical of my life. Everything was perfect -- from the ceremony music to the fun filled evening of non-stop dancing. I loved every song that was played and as you probably noticed, never left the dance floor:) Neither did the majority of our guests!

Working with you has been a dream -- Rich, you have been incredibly warm, professional, accommodating, and feel like a friend, rather than our band leader extraordinaire. Your energy, positive spirit, and love for what you do is clear in every interaction we have had -- and I think our guests were stunned by what you brought to the evening -- pitch perfect and so much fun.

You are beyond fabulous -- we will always be indebted to you and the band for making our wedding night one for the ages.

We loved working with Rich. We ended up having an extended reception as the bulk of our celebration and even though all the reviews we'd read online were about Rich and NY Edge keeping people dancing- in our case we had a jazz quartet and they really did keep the party moving, even though we had no dancing.

It was awesome. 4 very profssional musicians and Rich was a pleasure to work with!

Hi Rich,

I thought the party was amazing!! We had so much fun and our guests did too, so really thank you so much it was a blast and you got all ages up dancing the whole night. I appreciate you being so flexible with the schedule last minute too and making the adjustments we needed for my dad. Bryan and I loved the first dance, even though I know our dancing may not have done it justice, we were happy. I wouldn't have changed anything, it was great! Everyone left very happy...and sweaty!!

Rich and New York Edge made our wedding a blast on June 8th! From the start of planning , over a year before the event, everything went smoothly. Rich made sure to take note of our tastes and preferences to ensure a great party! Just as promised, they kept the party going all night with a great mix of music from all different genres and time periods. We've received loads of compliments from guests on the wonderful band. Everyone especially loved that the band actually came out onto the dancefloor and sang with our guests! We hope to see them at another wedding soon but know that ours will be tough to beat!

Once again, thank you so much for an outstanding performance and for memories that we will cherish forever!

The party's over but the melody lingers on. What an outstanding professional job you did on Saturday night at our daughter's wedding!
The ballroom was filled with great instrumental music, rich sound and a selection that pleased our guests who ranged in age from 18 to 90.

You kept all your promises. You said that you could read a crowd and keep the dance floor filled and you certainly did. At 1:00am we were still dancing and enjoying ourselves. Thank you for being an incredible musician, a wonderful singer and extraordinary musical leader. Without any reservation, you will be recommended to all who inquire "who was that terrific group at Bethany's wedding?"

Rich and his band were absolutely incredible. They read the crowd perfectly and kept the night moving all night long. There were at least 200 people on the dance floor the whole night out of 220. They played a mix of top 40, Motown, oldies and more. I would definitely recommend them to another bride and groom. They were easy to work with and crate song lIsts with as well as very flexible and easy to get in touch with. Their band is solid and their female singer is fantastic.

Rich and his band were absolutely incredible. They read the crowd perfectly and kept the night moving all night long. There were at least 200 people on the dance floor the whole night out of 220. They played a mix of top 40, Motown, oldies and more. I would definitely recommend them to another bride and groom. They were easy to work with and crate song lIsts with as well as very flexible and easy to get in touch with. Their band is solid and their female singer is fantastic. They know just what to do to make It a night that we will never forget.

New York Edge was absolutely incredible. The confidence and friendliness you feel from your very first visit with Rich to the last minutes of your wedding are absolutely amazing. Rich and his band do an incredible job at making your wedding party unforgettable. Our dance floor was filled the entire night and at the end everyone was still full of energy and going strong. We described what type of night we wanted, and Rich listened and ran with it. It was truly amazing. By choosing New York Edge you are guaranteeing yourself an awesome and fun night that will have your guests raving. If you are looking for a quiet, calm evening this is not the band for you. With this band, you get a non-stop party filled with a night of dancing and partying.

If you are looking for a band that will keep your dance floor packed the entire night, you HAVE to go with New York Edge. Rich and the entire band are full of so much energy and talent. Everyone told us after that they were the best band that they ever heard! They played all different types of music, so all of our guests were dancing the night away!

We had New York Rhythm. They were sensational. They played exactly the kind of music we asked for and had the dance floor packed all day long. During dinner they played the quiet background music we asked for which allowed our guests to talk to one another....something everyone commented on, and appreciated. Our guests had a fabulous time dancing and singing along. We have been hearing raves about the band from everyone.

To Rich and New York Edge:

Just wanted to follow up and say, wow! Or, more appropriately, WOW! You absolutely blew the roof off of our party! It was simply amazing. I still get chills thinking about it. You guys are the best. You nailed our first song and what a finale! We've received several letters from guests complimenting the wedding, but mostly complimenting you! The phrase "that was the best band I've ever heard in my life" has been uttered more than just a few times to us. The party was nonstop and, in very large part to you, the most fun evening of our lives.

Just as important, you were great. I knew the minute we met you, you had a gift. And not just for music. You made the process fun, relaxing, and seamless. My wife joked during our engagement that when I was frustrated with all the wedding planning that I should call you to get in a happy mood again! You're a sure bet for an incredible party.

We can't wish you enough continued success with New York Edge. While no more weddings for us, we hope we can book you again when we feel the need for a raging party!

I can NOT say enough wonderful things about these guys or praise them enough for making our wedding the event of the year for our friends, family and for the two of us.

We hired them as a nine piece band. Everyone is still raving about the music, the fun, the energy they created and the all-around great time everyone had at our wedding Throughout the entire reception they chose a perfect variety of music and tailored it to the crowd in the moment! Someone even exclaimed that they had never seen a dance floor SO packed at the very first song played. From young to old, wild to conservative, they played something for everyone and made the night truly magical.

We simply cannot thank them enough for helping create a night that no one will forget. TRULY top notch!!!!

If you hire them, you could probably skip flowers and a wedding cake and no one would care or notice.

You always hear the number one thing guests remember from a wedding was how much fun they had, aka dancing the night away. We knew it was our most important wedding vendor, and did much research in finding the perfect band. Well, we did find the PERFECT band in NEW YORK EDGE. Rich and the entire New York Edge band were top of the line musicians and performers. Their energy had every single guest on the dance floor. Their voices and instruments were incredible, and their song choice was carefully thought out. This is a classy band, with a lot of character and amazing entertaining skills. We couldn't have been any happier with the way our wedding turned out, and we owe a huge thank you to New York Edge for being such an important part of making this happen. Every guest left saying they've never heard such a great band...and we'd have to agree. We'd recommend them to anyone looking for an all around class act band, that will have you dancing the night away. Thank you NYE!

Hi Rich

My daughter Tracey Schmitt and my new son -in-law were married this
past Saturday in Sandy Hook. You were the band she chose to play at
the wedding, and I must admit that your band was FANTASTIC, AWESOME,
and to put it mildly the BEST!!! Right after their first dance as
husband and wife the dance floor started to ROCK!!! Everyone was out
there on the floor dancing, singing along and enjoying the music. Your
" interplay" with the guests was PHENOMINAL. It was too bad that such
a wonderful evening came and went so quickly........ in my eyes that
means you made the wedding quite memorable with your music. I cannot
thank Tracey enough for hiring you.. I have always said that an
EXCELLENT band makes the wedding great, and you certainly did!

Melissa and I want to say a huge thank you to you, Shanti and the New York Edge Team for putting together an awesome show. The music is such a key part of a wedding and you guys set the tone perfectly.
Our friends and family keep raving about the exceptional performance of the band. You entertained the entire room and had everyone moving and dancing the night away.

We would also like to thank you for the incredible rendition of our wedding song and the song you performed with our nieces. You guys did a great job coordinating everything, and making sure all our requests were meet. Your professionalism and talents shined through from beginning to end and we can’t thank you enough.

We were both hugely impressed. If you need us for direct recommendations please feel free to reach out.

We had tremendous expectations for our special day. You typically know what to expect when selecting the venue and you can guage the quality of the food based on the tasting. Since music is such an integral part of a successful party, we had fairly stringent requirements. Any anxieties we had during our planning were quelled once we met with Rich Greenfield and New York Edge Music. He was more interested in getting to know us than quickly rushing to discuss the business end of the engagement. His creativity and understanding of our preferences allowed NYEM to truly perform beyond our expectations. They engaged the crowd from the very beginning and maintained incredible energy throughout the night. I can't say enough about the talent and effort that this company brings. You will not be disappointed -- you will be blown away.

My email to Rich, the band leader, should sum up my review perfectly:

It is has been almost 2 weeks since our wedding, and everyone is STILL talking about how much fun they had at the wedding, and most importanly, how awesome the band was!! My mom has had to stop answering the phone because it is ringing off the hook, and she is losing her voice! Everyone is absolutely raving about you guys. Not that I'm surprised! From the minute we met with you the first time and heard you guys, my mom and I were pinching each other on your couch. We had chills - you guys were so good! Once we signed the contract and left, I was literally jumping up and down on Broadway, because I knew that you guys would make our wedding one to remember. You did all that and more!!

Everyone from age 18 to 70 was out on the dance floor from the minute they walked into the reception, until the minute it ended. And even after that! No one wanted to leave. The range of music you played was awesome - something for everyone, and such a constant variety, kept everyone on their toes all night! You guys totally know how to set up all the dance sets and keep the party going. There was never a dull moment, never a moment without music, and never one of those "ehh" songs that made everyone kind of drift off the dance floor. Here's a snippet from an email from one of my parent's friends: "The band was fantastic, and despite knee replacement surgery, not dancing was not an option!!"

Even all of the vendors, who have of course been at tons of weddings, commented on how great you were and how it was the most packed dance floor they have seen. Our photographer stayed way overtime with no charge, just because he was having so much fun and wanted to capture everyone else having such a good time too!

So Tim and I bow down to you, New York Edge, the absolute masters!! We can't thank you enough for making our wedding THE party to remember, and for being such a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process. You were always on top of all of the details, scheduling, and timing the night of the wedding, and I always felt like we were in such good hands. I can't wait for my friends to get engaged so I can hand over your contact info! I want to be a guest at a wedding you play at, so i don't have to be dragged off the dance floor for photos and such!!

When we went into our meeting with Rich Greenfield we did not expect to hire them. We had already picked our band, and only went to meet with them because they were highly recommended from a colleague of mine. But we are so happy we decided to meet with them! We both left that meeting with no doubt that we wanted New York Edge to be our wedding band.

The entire night of the wedding went perfectly. The timing of everything was perfect: our first dance, the hora, the speeches, the dancing sets, the dining sets, the cake cutting - flawless. We only met with Rich one or two times before the wedding to determine the flow of things - and he pulled it off without a hitch. Nothing was missed or left out or poorly timed. Trust Rich when he gives advice on the flow of the evening - he knows his stuff. The band makes the party. If you have a tight budget, skimp on anything - except for the band. We don't regret one frickin penny we spent on this band.

Most importantly, the dance floor was packed the entire night. People are STILL raving about the band. We had a 9 piece band (with 4 singers) and a pianist for the cocktail hour. There is nothing this band can't play. I think they know every song ever written, and every style on earth. They know how to read a crowd and they know when to play what song in order to keep the guests dancing. They even had a kick line to New York New York going well after midnight. The New York Edge could play a wedding in a mud pit and they would still make it the best party ever.

Choose this band for your wedding. You won't regret it. It was the most fun, lively, crazy, energetic time we've ever had. My #1 wish was that the dance floor was packed the whole night. It was. And Rich and The New York Edge were a pleasure to work with.

Thanks so much for making our wedding a smashing success. Our guests continue to rave about NY Edge and we all danced the night away. I think a sign of a good night was that I (the bride) was unable to walk the next day from dancing too much! You were extremely professional, and knew just how to keep the party moving along all night long. Would happily recommend you to anyone.

Dear Rich, Shanti, and the New York Edge Orchestra,

We just wanted to make sure that we officially thanked you for the amazing job you guys did at our most important gig - our wedding! More than two months later, our friends are STILL talking about how great the music was and what a fun time they had dancing the night away. When we first met with you guys, we felt an instant connection and knew we wanted you guys to play at our wedding. We can admit it now, but at first we did have one tiny concern - your lack of a "play" list. When asked about this, Rich told us that there was no need - he was going to read the crowd. Rich promised us sets that would get our WHOLE reception up on the dance floor. Let's just say that Rich's promise was 110% delivered. Everyone from the 5 year old flower girls to the 85 year old grandparents were up on their feet dancing up a storm! Everything from the choice of songs, to the band's attire, to the "MC-ing" was done with taste and style. We truly could not have asked for a better band. We would recommend you guys to anyone and everyone again and again!

Thanks again for such a terrific performance, and we hope to see you at all our friends' weddings in the future!!

Sincerely,

Stephanie & Matt

Rich and his band could not have been more accommodating to my husbands taste in music. Rich really knows how to read the crowd to keep the party going. Everyone commented that they had never danced so much at wedding, and was so amazed at the nontraditional, omission of cheesy wedding songs that they were able to perform. (My husband is a Dead head so he thinks every band should be like a concert, and the New York Edge did not disappoint!)

This is an amazing band and you can't go wrong! I enjoyed meeting with Rich on a couple of occasions to discuss our wedding and our choice in music. I spent a lot of time checking off the songs and making clear the music we would like to hear as well as the music to omit-- I was disappointed to hear Journey and Bon Jovi played at my wedding when we specifically asked for music with a beat and salsa. This is why I knocked a star off "responsiveness". However, our weddings guests loved it and the floor was constantly packed with dancers, and that's what counts! The band has a ton of energy, a few times I found myself dancing next to Rich and his bass guitar, I had not realized they could escape the stage and join the crowd. My guests also enjoyed the chance to sing into the mic with them here and there. In addition to playing good music, they were excellent performers in that sense and added to the excitement.

NY Edge are true professionals with a nice working space. They also learned two songs for us with about 3 weeks to go, and did a fantastic job with them. I definitely recommend this band as a professional talented bunch who know how to keep the crowd going. In addition, they knew all the cultural stuff we wanted at our Jewish wedding-- mezinkah, horah, etc. They also frequently work at our venue and helped prepare us for the day.

We used the classical trio for our ceremony, pianist for cocktail hour, and 8 member band for reception.

Great Wedding! Rich, It was great seeing you, your wife and whole crew at the wedding this weekend. As you know, we have seen New York Edge perform numerous times, including at our wedding which was a truly joyous occasion. Your band really set the tone for a wonderful affair. One of the distinguishing characteristics I have noticed is how seamlessly you move from song to song and keep everyone engaged and on the dance floor. So often I have seen bands really dampen the mood by failing to transition well between pieces. Another thing that I especially appreciate is how you are able to integrate the brides and groom's suggested playlist so that it all flows together. We can't wait to see you again
