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

Jack, The A Band leader, was an absolute joy to work with! He supported us through the whole process with kind words and really solid advice. We found The A Band through their review in New York Weddings magazine, checked here on Wedding Wire, but it was talking to Jack that really closed the deal! He really cares about his work and it shows. The Band was amazing - everyone danced! even my grandparents!

I contacted several bands throughout my wedding planning process - the A band was by far the most responsive, professional, thoughtful, and organized. I had several options all around the same price, all with great reviews - but I could tell that Jack was the most passionate and organized. I was planning my wedding from Los Angeles so I sent my Mother in Law to listen to the band. She loved them immediately (and has heard many wedding bands!) We ended up choosing the 8 piece band and using Jack's team for ceremony and cocktail hour. The process coordinating with Jack for my big day could not have been easier. He was incredibly responsive to all of my E-mails. From filling out a form he performed every single wedding song perfectly. All requests for the band break song lists were played. The dance floor was moving all night and I did not provide any instruction on specific songs. Also, his coordination with my coordinator on timelines for speeches, etc was FLAWLESS and they maybe discussed the timeline once. Do not hesitate to hire Jack & the A Band. Beautiful sound, & a band you can count on to make your day run PERFECTLY. Amanda & Leo June 2016

Two of my daughters were married in successive years with the most recent being late Summer of 2016. There was no hesitation at any point for bringing back The A Band of NY for an encore from my first daughters Wedding in 2015. The class, professionalism, and musicianship that Jack McLoryd and his talented cast of musicians bring to a reception is unsurpassed by any other group that I have witnessed in hundreds of weddings I have been to in my lifetime. The response by everyone when the A Band is playing is "Who are these guys"? and "Where have they been hiding?
They are that good. Book EM! You will have an unforgettable reception!!! Tom O'Neil Poughkeepsie, NY

Booking the A Band was the best decision we made for our wedding. After we saw the live sampler show in New York City, we knew they’d be able to keep the party going. Jack, the band leader, was so professional and easy to work with. It was clear right off the bat that this group has the experience to make sure everything run smoothly and create a fun atmosphere. With a great balance of current and classic music, we had everyone on the dance floor all night, from middle school cousins to my grandfather. The band took a few breaks throughout the evening, but they were well-timed and people took them as an opportunity to get a drink or take a breather. Throughout the night and afterwards, our guests told us how much they loved the band. I think we may even be lucky enough to attend a wedding featuring the A Band in the future. We booked the 8-person group, since we wanted to make sure our wedding band featured woodwind and brass instruments. The decision to book the A Band was particularly easy given their stellar abilities and average cost.

My husband and I used The A Band last month for our wedding and I cannot begin to say how happy I am that we got to work with them. From our initial meeting and planning throughout the months leading up to our wedding, Jack was a pleasure to work with and was very detailed and organized! We also had the pleasure of watching them play live at a studio before we booked them which made our decision very easy to make.
For our wedding we used them for the ceremony (flute and keyboard) , cocktail hour (sax and keyboard) and then a 7 piece band for our reception. They are all extremely talented, hardworking and great to work with. I would highly recommend-you will not be disappointed!

We hired Jack McLoryd and the A Band for my husband's birthday party and everyone absolutely loved them. Several friends have called us to get Jack's contact info for their children's weddings. He played the best music and knew exactly what the crowd wanted. Fabulous vocals with wonderful instrumental back up. Jack is very professional, organized and fair. People are still talking about how the band made the party. We needed a larger dance floor because it was packed the whole night!

The A Band did an incredible job at our wedding! We would recommend them without reservation. The dance floor was full throughout the entire night. Since the wedding, guests of all ages have remarked how well the band performed and coordinated the reception's activities.

The A Band has an extensive repertoire of songs, so it was easy to find a full playlist of songs that we loved. Jack was also very accommodating in making sure that the band played songs from our song selection list.

Thank you to the A Band for making our wedding reception so special! We explored a lot of options for our band and are extremely pleased we went with the A Band.
