We are a wedding cover band based in Brooklyn, NY called The Engagements.

Catering to couples looking for a unique alternative to the typical, cookie-cutter wedding, we play a lot of 80's covers, along with rare soul and Motown. Our set lists are full of songs that haven't been played to death at weddings.

Comprised of a group of professional musician friends, our band members have toured in the bands of some recognizable acts - from Michael McDonald and Michael Buble, to Sharon Jones and French Kicks.

We're an actual BAND, we love playing together, and we're constantly tweaking our set list to keep it fresh.

Check out our videos - we cover songs by Human League, Eurythmics, Al Green, Michael Jackson, Hall N Oates, Tears For Fears and more...

Contact us about our availability and we'll send you an info packet with a song list, and answers to FAQ's.

We agree with the reviewer below - hiring The Engagements was perhaps the best wedding-related decision we made. When we selected The Engagements, we knew that the music would be fantastic - we had seen them play at a friend's wedding a few years back - and it was... our wedding was a great dance party (exactly what we wanted) and the band played a setlist that got guests of all ages on the dance floor. The compliments on the music at our wedding are still flowing in over a week later, some guests said they were the best wedding band that they had seen. My parents were also pleased with the volume of the band - loud enough that it was fun and filled the space, but not so loud that it drowned out conversation and overwhelmed.What we didn't expect when we selected The Engagements was how involved, helpful and flexible Aaron would be in the lead-up and planning. He really listened to our needs for the evening and was responsive to a lot of back and forth to ensure we were happy with how the night would go. Aaron and the band are very experienced in the ebb and flow of a good party, and so it was great to have his advice as we were planning the evening. He even came to the venue with me to scope out the best spots for the band set-up and to talk through possibilities as there were some logistical hiccups with our venue. In the end, The Engagements helped make an incredible night, we can't say enough good things.

The Engagements (and my wife) made our wedding amazing. The band skillfully navigated our diverse - a song from the ‘Like Water for Chocolate’ soundtrack and an obscure U2 number - and purposely funky set list; smoothly flowing William DeVaughn, Curtis Mayfield and the Wonderful Stevie throughout that hot August night. Aaron was proactive in ensuring we came up with song selections to match the energy of our personalities and yet inclusive for the wide range of guests. The dance floor was always full and the feedback from friends and family during the weeks to follow always began with the beautiful bride and ended with that brilliant band.
Aaron and the Engagements were professional, prompt and provided the sonic backbeat to a very special night for all that were there.

Working with Aaron and The Engagements was a true pleasure. In our entire wedding planning process, The Engagements were our favorite vendors to work with. Not only were they extremely efficient and professional in their communications, but they continually put us at ease, responding to our requests with a great deal of flexibility and understanding. Their live performance was HANDS DOWN the best we've ever experienced at a wedding (of course, we're probably a little biased). We were touched by the number of songs the band was willing to learn for us, and by how many of our requested songs they played SO incredibly well. Hearing our favorite music on our wedding day was a magical experience we will remember for the rest of our lives. The Engagements made that possible and we will be forever grateful. Use this band if you have the opportunity to do so! You won't regret it!

The Engagements came strongly recommended by a musician colleague with discerning taste, so we had high expectations going in. They did not disappoint.

Aaron, the bandleader, was great to deal with. We had several in-depth discussions before the wedding (via FaceTime) to pin down the playlist and the overall flow of the reception. He was also very responsive by email whenever we had follow-up questions. We appreciated that the group was flexible enough to learn several request songs before the big day. Overall, the tone of all our interactions was relaxed and professional. It was as if we had a very talented, competent, and experienced friend in charge of the music.

And the music was amazing. They were versatile enough to cover both The Cure and Stevie Wonder, without any kitsch or pretension. Their version of Donny Hathaway’s “A Song For You” (a request song) brought the house down. And when they settled into a groove for the post-dinner dancing, their energy got everyone, young and old, up and out of their seats. Afterwards, everyone went on and on about how great the music was.

We highly recommend Aaron and his group without reservation.

Kick Ass Band!
• Pros: We had The Engagements for our wedding. They were awesome! They played so many of our favorite and classic 60s, 70s, 80s hits. Our guests were dancing until the event ended, and even requested one last song at night end. At our reception, we often found ourselves in front of the band dancing with our hands in the air! Band was very accommodating and great to work with day of wedding.
• Cons: Response time wasn’t often as quick as we’d like but a few follow-ups got us what we needed.

The Engagements were a huge hit at our wedding. They had our guests, both young and old, dancing the entire time. Several guests told us it was one of the best weddings they've ever been to, and they raved about how fun the band was! A few guests have already asked for the band's contact info for future events.
The Engagements played a great mix of music and weren't cheesy like many other wedding bands we've seen. Aaron was also the epitome of professional. We were initially somewhat nervous about hiring a wedding band we'd never seen perform live, and we had a few conversations with Aaron before making our decision. One of the things that swayed us was that Aaron was extremely easy to deal with; he was responsive and accommodating to all of our requests. Before the wedding, we discussed with Aaron what we liked and didn't like, and the band took it from there. We were also having trouble deciding on a first dance song, and really appreciated the band's feedback on which songs they felt they could cover best - we ultimately loved their rendition of the song we chose. Throughout the reception they did an awesome job of reading the room and selecting songs accordingly, and the dance floor was packed all night.
I would definitely recommend The Engagements to anyone getting married or hosting a special event - they will not disappoint!

Hopefully The Engagements won't become too famous by the time we have our 10-year anniversary party...! We would hire them again in a heartbeat.

The Engagements totally killed it our wedding! We fell in love with their music the minute we heard them online and when we called Aaron to book, he was attentive, easy to work with and took pride in customizing our special day. He traveled from Brooklyn to Manhattan in the pouring raining to discuss how the day would go and lock up last minute details. The music was amazing at wedding. All our guests kept asking where we got the band and how we found them. The dance party was nonstop, the sound and musicians were incredible, such talent, and they only took 2 short breaks. I wish we could celebrate with The Engagements every year - They truly made our day unforgettable and we could never thank them enough.

Aaron and his team delivered for our wedding on a very tight schedule (I think we came to them only a few weeks before the date), and we couldn't have been happier. They played all the right songs, and kept things going at a high energy for the whole set. The dance floor was packed all night, with guests of all ages. I'd be hard pressed to imagine a more ideal experience.
