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.

The Engagements rocked out for a solid 4 hours - our wedding guests went from dancing in their seats to joining us on the dance floor in short-order. In the weeks leading up to our wedding, we had a few great conversations with Aaron, pairing our preferences with the bands skillset. In the end, The Engagements preparation showed and they were the source of countless compliments.

We are SO HAPPY we hired The Engagements to play at our wedding. Their song catalog is fantastic and they are incredible performers--our guests were so impressed that we had a super-legit sax solo at our wedding. They kept the dance floor packed all night and we had a wide range of musical tastes in attendance. There are also great MCs in the band!!! We worked with Aaron in the year leading up to our wedding and he made everything a breeze. He asked all the right questions and made perfect suggestions. We had no idea what worked and what didn't work to keep the night on track and engaging--luckily Aaron is a pro at this. The band also learned a few songs we requested that weren't on their list and played them with gusto. Hire them!!!

Tough to get across in a review just how great The Engagements were at our wedding. Phenomenally tight band, great singers, and awesome awesome set list seguing from sam cooke to the beatles to james brown to 80s michael to bowie to the boss to the clash. Aaron is thoughtful about details and great to work with up front dealing with song list, electricity requirements, etc. and was really flexible coordinating their guys doing the sound for our ceremony, three members of the band playing jazz during cocktails, and their guitarist accompanying a bridesmaid singing a song during the ceremony, in addition to the full band for the party. We had three generations of guests out there on the dance floor really getting into it (and in many cases asking us who the band was and how we found them), and the band seemed to genuinely be really into the songs and to really enjoy playing with each other which really creates great energy for a party. I'll just copy below an excerpt of what my wife wrote the band afterwards:

"We had an absolute blast! You guys were amazing and really helped to make the night so special!...We've been listening to the set list on repeat ever since and reliving the great memories. It all went by so fast, it's hard to imagine that you packed all of that in there. ... We still keep getting raves from guests of all ages....I have a feeling that you may get a few requests to play at Princeton Reunions... Thank you again so much for helping to make it the best dance party ever!"

The pretty much says it -- great dance party -- we're both looking for an excuse to book the Engagements again in the future!

Music was one of the most important decisions we made during planning and we could not have asked for a better band to have at our wedding. Aaron was awesome to work with from the very beginning. He was easy to communicate with and set up multiple conference calls so my husband and I could work through our vision of our wedding day. We were aiming for a more casual, less structured feeling for the day and the band had no problem rolling with whatever felt natural to the vibe while also making sure we covered all the necessities. Aaron gave us great feedback about what he thought worked and what didn't based on his vast experiences. Our wedding was in Philadelphia at a historic playground and everything went smoothly even in a somewhat less traditional space. He made sure all of the details were worked out in advance (enough power, space, etc.) so we never had to worry about last minute problems. All of our conversations set my mind at ease.

We loved how talented each musician was. We never felt like any of it was too cookie-cutter or too wedding-y. From Talking Heads to Motown, The Cure to Tom Waits, they really hit all the marks with the music we love without forcing anything we didn't. They were always in tune with the energy of the party and made great decisions about what to play next. They also learned a handful of songs just for us. The song they learned for our first dance (which happened organically after dinner) was so beautiful and energetic-- my favorite part of the whole day. We are still hearing from our guests about how good our band was! I had enormous blisters for days from dancing so much and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I hired The Engagements to perform at my bosses’ 50th birthday party, which was held at her home. The band was incredible, especially the lead singer! The dancefloor was packed the entire evening. There were several musicians present among the guests and everyone was really impressed.
Aaron was extremely responsive to all of my many emails. The party hosts wanted a lot of variety in the songs and The Engagements created an amazing set. I would highly recommend the Engagements to anyone planning a special event. I wish I had known about them for my wedding!

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.

I cannot say enough good things about The Engagements!!!

From the very beginning, Aaron was super helpful. He clearly loves what he does. At the initial stages of booking, my husband and I weren't sure what our budget would allow for the band. Aaron was more than willing to figure out how to make the band work within a reasonable budget. In the end, my husband and I were able to book the entire 10 piece band and we couldn't have been happier! It definitely was well worth it.

Aaron was super accommodating with song requests. He even managed to make one of our song requests happen despite the fact that it required detailed synth programming. Our e-mails were always answered in a timely fashion. He was very easy to work with and understood our musical taste.

All of our guests were up and dancing. Even my 88 year-old grandmother was cutting a rug! The attention that Aaron put into the song list was incredible. There was not one moment the entire time that the dance floor was not packed. People cannot stop telling us how much fun they had at our wedding and how much they enjoyed the music. We had more fun at our wedding than we thought possible thanks to the Engagements.

Do yourself a favor and book them! Your guests will thank you.

We knew the Engagements were good but they exceeded all expectations. Fantastic band, world class singers, they learned some special requests for our reception and played all our favorites. Lots of soul and lots of groove. Whenever the wedding comes up, everyone mentions how great the band was, "best wedding band ever" being the most common remark. Easy to work with, everything was smooth, organized and ran like clockwork.
