"The Classix band made our reception a memorable event! Along with their extensive song list, they did special songs we requested. Each member of the band is a PRO....they played all styles of music great. Our guests didn't leave the dance floor the entire time the band played." Jackie B.

The Classix are king of cool. Their big sound has been launching crowds onto the wedding reception dance floors since 1999. Performing throughout the northeast at weddings, corporate gatherings, private parties and everything in between, these seasoned professionals hit just the right note for your special day. The Classix play all the popular favorites plus a sophisticated selection of original songs that leave your guests begging for more. These professional musicians travel with their own PA system and lighting - keeping your costs down. And they'll work with you if you're on a tight budget. For weddings, The Classix can also provide toned down music for your ceremony, cocktail hour or dinner with a pleasing blend of piano and guitar(optional) before filling the dance floor by the rockin' music of the full band. Our alphabetical songlist helps you to find specific titles easily for your event and we will make custom set lists if you let us know what genre you would be interested in. We also offer a categorized song list to expedite your search. If you don't see specific songs you would request, give us the title and the artist so we can learn it for you. Live showcases and/or live performance CD's & DVD's are available for clients by request.

We had our wedding reception at the St. Regis Hotel and loved the old new york style elegance. The painted ceilings with clouds in on the top floor is what drew me in. The variety of food and the deserts where excellent. The service is 5 star. Erik Guzowski our New York City wedding photographer from Exhale Photojournalism took many great details of the St. Regis Hotel and from outside as well. Our live band The Classix was the Big Band sound we were looking for. All and all I think we had a classic wedding with sophistication and elegance.

This band was so much fun! We couldn't stop dancing (or singing along!) for the entire night. Everyone enjoyed them from my kids to our parents...they are the best. We would go anywhere, anytime to see another Classix performance!

They were absolutely phenomenal. Helpful, willing to work with us, learned new songs (and performed them BEAUTIFULLY), and gave us the personal attention we needed. They were fun, talents, and truly gave us an unforgettable wedding. I can't rave about The Classix enough!

The classix band was very reasonable in price and were a lot of fun! Our wedding was a huge hit and partly because of the music. They were willing to learn new songs that we requested one of which was our wedding song, which sounded amazing! I would definately reccommend this band for another wedding.
