The Rhythm Dogs were fabulous! They were easy to communicate with prior to our wedding, happy to talk through ideas, and were prompt and responsive. I was absolutely thrilled with the music at our wedding. We had them do everything from ceremony, to cocktails, to reception and I am so thrilled that we had them there for all of that. Our guests danced the night away and our wedding wouldn't have been the same without them. I recommend them without any reservations.

I can't say enough about the rhythm dogs. All the guests were up and dancing the whole night-the music was fantastic and I couldn't have asked for a better band. We are so happy we had the rhythm dogs play at our wedding!

We love the Rhythm Dogs. Peter couldn't have been more responsive and flexible. He worked out a way to get a professional-size keyboard up on an open-air ski-lift to the mountain-top ceremony!

Rhythm Dogs worked their magic throughout our entire wedding day, and during the reception, they had everyone packed onto the dancefloor, and a crowd of guest "groupies" were just watching them and dancing in front of them! Saxophone player was especially phenomenal.

Every song we asked them to play (or learn), they did with ease. Their voices and music were flawless. I can't count the number of people who said how incredible they were. Some even asked for their contact info for future events of their own!

If you're looking for a top-notch, professional band, who elevates your wedding to the next level, go with The Rhythm Dogs!

the Rhythm Dogs provided music for our cocktail hour and reception. we used the full band as well as the DJ. they were absolutely fantastic! they kept the party going and were wonderful emcees. we got tons of compliments and people had a great time dancing all night.

we worked with Peter Brown. he is friendly, responsive, and just an all around cool guy. he answered all of my emails within a day (if not within minutes or hours!). he took care of the order of events and really made everything stress-free.

i couldn't have asked for a better band, or a better person to do business with. i recommend the Rhythm Dogs without hesitation!

We couldn't recommend Rhythm Dogs more! From our first dance to Stevie Wonder's "For Once In My Life" to our last dance to Bob Marley's "One Love," the band showed top notch energy, sound and fun. Professional, pleasant and super talented all around, we'd hire them again and again!

The Rhythm Dogs exceeded all of our expectations - which were set pretty high going into the evening. They delivered on everything they had promised, which was a soulful & joyous set of authentic, uplifting, feel-good live music. The energy & chemistry the band shares is unprecedented, and the good vibes poured into the audience song after money-maker-shaking song. Don't give it a second thought - book these guys & enjoy the night.

Pete did an absolutely amazing job as a DJ at our wedding! I was extremely busy with a new job and a baby at home and did not have time to give Pete much direction for our wedding music. With the very little direction I provided, he knew EXACTLY what to do. Our guests did not want to leave the dance floor!

I would highly recommend Pete and the Rhythm Dogs for any wedding .

Thankfully, the wedding coordinator for our venue suggested the Rhythm Dogs because another couple that was getting married had hired them for the venue, even though the venue was in Vermont. We had our wedding in Vermont, even though we are from New Jersey. This allowed members of my family to go into NYC to see a showcase before we officially hired them. (Even though my husband and I knew right away they were exactly what we were looking for just by listening to them online) Hiring the Rhythm Dogs for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. Personally, I feel the quality and type of music at a wedding sets the tone. They performed above and beyond what we could have anticipated. All of the musicians and singers are incredibly talented. They were also very accommodating with playing all of the kinds of music my husband and I asked them to play. I am so thankful they were able to travel to Vermont from NYC to play at our wedding. Most of our 200+ guests were on the dance floor the entire night. I could not be happier with the Rhythm Dogs's performance. They were a key component for making our wedding night a dream come true! I would recommend the Rhythm Dogs to anyone who wants to have a good time at their event.

We absolutely loved the Rhythm Dogs. Peter Brown, the manager was super responsive and easy to work with and made planning stress free. We had our wedding at a farm in NJ but they were happy to play at a unique venue for our reception. We found them through a friend that highly recommended them but did not hear them play until our first dance and then we were blown away! The lead singers were amazing and they kept the dance floor rocking all night, it was packed with all ages! At the end of the night the DJ played some songs to keep the party going. I had so many people come up to me to tell me what a great band and ask where I found them. AND they were very reasonably priced compared to other bands we looked at in the NY/NJ area and could play pretty much anythingl I would say they made the wedding for us! I only wish we could have had them play longer (we had a sound curfew) or hire them again!!
