The "A" Band of NY has been chosen as a "Best Band" by NY Magazine from 2002 to 2014!

This dynamic group has built it's reputation on packed dance floors with people of various ages. Always being attentive to the mood of the crowd enables us to play just what is needed to get or keep the party hoppin'! Even though we are veterans of NY city venues we are based in the suburbs and our pricing reflects that. This band is sold by event planners in NY city for hundreds more than our retail price. Our DJ service is included in our price to provide continuous music of any style through out the evening.

In addition to The "A" Band, we also provide classical ensembles for ceremonies with jazz and steel drum ensembles for cocktail hour.

High quality, Classy, Fun, Easy to work with, Professional are the things we hear back from our clients. I hope to hear that from you as well! Read less

We used The A Band for our wedding reception music and cocktail hour music. They did a great job of playing songs that kept the dance floor hopping! They were very professional and they were very easy to work with. Many of the guests complimented us on the band and said they really enjoyed the music. Jack and his team made the process seamless and really made the reception a blast. They also had a guitarist play for us during the cocktail hour, which was perfect. For the reception, we left playlist to them, and was very happy with all the music they chose. They learned a song for our cake cutting and played the song we chose for our first dance exactly like the record. Thank you Jack for a beautiful evening!

My husband and I are both professional musicians, so the selection of our wedding band was priority number 1. We were looking for a versatile band that specializes in Big Band, and did we hit the jackpot!! The musicianship is excellent and they were able to appeal to a wide range of tastes. They played jazz standards through dinner, and were the perfect volume to enjoy them as well as hold a conversation. Then they transitioned to classic rock, disco, and modern selections when the dancing began. They had everyone on the dance floor all night long! If I had it to do all over again, I would hire The "A" Band of NY in a heartbeat. It was the best decision that we made. A huge thank you to Jack and the entire band!!!

Jack and his fantastic band played for our wedding in early October. Not only was Jack wonderful to deal with throughout the process--organized, responsive, helpful, warm--but he and his band members brought a friendly, pleasant and energetic vibe to our wedding. Tracy is fabulous--amazing voice and warm, happy smile--and the musicians are excellent. Several of our guests said it was the best time dancing at a wedding that they had ever had--and I must agree!

The A-Band was extraordinary on all levels. Musically they were phenomenal and the interplay of fabulous vocals coupled with really well balanced and professional insturmentals made for an amazing sound. From the standpoint of kinetics, energy, responsiveness to the crowd, catering to moment and the aura of the affair, they were so totally right on that it was as if the whole evening was choreographed by the "gods". Song selection was amazing ranging from motown, soul, contemporary, 50s, big band, "ethnic" (Italian and Jewish), hip hop, rock, blues and classic pop. Had 150 people on the dance floor for hours in a frenzy and we couldn't have asked for a better band. All the guests were talking about them far after the affair was over as if they were at a sold out show of Arcade Fire at the Bowery Ballroom. Could not have been happier!!!!

We hired the A Band to play at our recent wedding, and they were nothing short of fantastic! Jack and his team were patient, kind and professional through our planning process and were nothing short of amazing at our wedding! They really listened to the "feel" we were after for our wedding, and were able to play to the crowd and kept the dance floor packed all night! We've received so many compliments on our band.. I would highly recommend them!

Jack and the rest of the band were incredible at our wedding. The two female vocalists are really special. Jack was very patient with us throughout the process, as my fiancé went back and forth a fair amount about wanting them to learn a lot of new songs. We ended up leaving it mostly up to their judgment, which was great. We also had them learn a few of songs for us and Jack (covering Bruce Springsteen and Sam Cooke) and the main female singer (I don't know her name, but she is amazing, covering Bonnie Raitt) completely blew us away- and these are not easy artists to cover! In short, my husband and I (and all of our guests!) fully recommend the A Band! Book them early!

Jack and the A Band of NY are a dynamic group to work with for your special occasion or event-- and that's before they even play a note. Working with Jack will be easy and fun because he will handle all the issues in a friendly and organized way to ensure you get the live musical experience you are dreaming of for your party. The A Band will make that happen.
The A Band has an extensive playlist and they will play every song as if it were their own hit. If you want your music high energy, they will do that-- if you want it soft and slow, you will get that. They will match their sound to your venue so if the room is small it will not overwhelm the space and if it is large, your guests will feel like it's an intimate affair. Their lead female singer is amazing, she can belt out a hit and then smoothly ease into the sweetest sound you ever heard-- and every song will sweep you up into its power. And, the A Band is reasonably priced too!, We highly recommend them!
