Being a self-proclaimed music fanatic, I had very high expectations for my wedding band. Would a band be able to play contemporary hits and soon as good as the original recording? What about some eclectic song choices that most might not know? What about tunes that are infamously hard for a band to play (i.e., Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody")?

Under this amount of pressure and these demands, most bands might have bolted, headed for the hills, or suggested instead that we go with a DJ. However, as we would soon come to know, we weren't dealing with just any band. We were hiring TIME MACHINE, and none of these demands would go unmet -- in fact, they would be surpassed!

First of all, Joe Corey absolutely knows what he's doing. In the wedding business for decades, his confidence, as well as a genuine love for what he does, clearly shows through. If we had any doubts about hiring a band for our wedding, they had disappeared by the conclusion of our first meeting with Joe. They knew how to read a crowd, they were prepared to change up the song list if something wasn't working, and they promised to keep the dance floor energized and partying all night long. And boy, did they deliver. I think we probably could have had our wedding in the LaBrea tar pits -- as long as Time Machine was playing, people would've had a great time.

We adored all of the different voices and styles that TM (successfully) tackled, from Frank Sinatra to Robin Thicke to Journey! Additionally, our first dance was an obscure track by the indie band A Fine Frenzy, and Inez and the rest of the band did such an outstanding job, I was blown away! Also, the band really appeared to be having as much fun as the guests, especially when individual musicians appeared on the floor to burst into a solo on the sax or guitar. Also, the band joined the party without being obtrusive or aggressive at all, which was perfect. Hire them! They will absolutely MAKE your wedding!

We are so thrilled with the performance of the Time Machine Band at our wedding last night! Wow! The trio at cocktail hour was great! The full band was amazing as well and Joe and John were reliable from the planning to the performance.
As musicians ourselves, my husband and I played with the band for two Bruno Mars songs - my husband on drums and I on trumpet! What a treat and awesome experience for all! Our guests loved it and were so surprised!
With so many bands and DJs out there, you CANNOT go wrong with Time Machine! We have known how great they are since my sister's wedding back in 2009 and they are still amazing! We are so glad to have had them at our reception!
We asked for the full version of our first dance song, "Sway" by Michael Buble, and they delivered. We requested various songs and heard them played throughout the night, including the Kolo, a traditional dance song for my husband's family. We asked for a few other small requests and each one was carried out! THANK YOU all for a fantastic evening!
Love,
Evona and Daniel

Absolutely AMAZING!!! Our dance floor was packed the entire night! From the very first song, they had everyone up and on the dance floor. They had so much energy and played music that kept everyone moving from the cocktail hour, to the reception, and even into the after party! We first saw them at a relative's wedding, and immediately knew we wanted them for ours. They were even better then we remembered! We definitely recommend them to anyone looking for fantastic entertainment for their big day!!

The band was INCREDIBLE. A fantastic night was had by all.

However, the owner Joe is a complete idiot and a terrible businessman. I'm shocked he's still in business given how unprofessional and dumb he sounds in his emails and in person. I'm sure it will catch up with him but can't take anything away from the band!

Best Band Ever!!! My parents had seen this band at multiple weddings. Once we got engaged, there was no question of who we were going to use. They made our wedding. They got everyone up and dancing from the second the reception started. We loved that they came into the crowd and partied with us. All of our special requests were spot on. They are a one of a kind band!

I first saw the Time Machine Band about 4 years ago at my sister in laws wedding. I told Jay at that wedding if we get married thats who we are using. So when we got engaged last year, after I booked the Park Savoy, the next thing I did was call John and book The Time Machine Band. I had the time of my life at my wedding this past Saturday. My husband and I enjoyed dancing and partying on the dance floor with all of the fantastic members of The Time Machine Band. You even got my dad out on the dance floor and that is a hard thing to do!! The Time Machine Band deserves a 10 out of 10. They are worth every penny. You guys rocked The Park Savoy and I can't wait to go another wedding where you guys will be!!!! Thank you so much!!

We had the Breathless Band from Time Machine Entertainment. They had my guests on the dance floor the entire wedding. They were great to work with. We requested a special compilation for the son/mother dance and they worked with us until it was perfect. All of our requests were played, as well as, many others that the band recommended. I couldn't have asked for a better band!

This Band Did a Friend of Mines Wedding on October 6th 2013. The band did a Nice job at the Wedding but the Band leader & Owner Joe Corey is Very Unprofessional. He wrote on Facebook a day after the wedding about one of my friends that was at the wedding and that having a great time. The Band Owner Joe apparently Thought Quote on Quote " This guy was by far the Biggest Pain in the ass i have ever met. at the end it was funny i had to hug him lol drunk? maybe mentally challenged? thought so ... IN THE END... I GOT THE REASON WHY.. he was a cop hahahaha."

THIS IS WHAT THE BAND OWNER AND LEADER WROTE AND POSTED A PICTURE ON FACEBOOK ABOUT MY FRIEND AND WROTE THIS COMMENT!!! DO WANT THIS GUY TO TALK ABOUT YOUR GUESTS LIKE THAT? ARE YOU A COP? HE HAS NO RESPECT FOR THE PROFESSION APPARENTLY!!! LOOK THIS GUY UP "JOE COREY" AND CHECK IT OUT ON HIS FACEBOOK. HE IS A LOW LIFE AND SHOULD NOT BE IN BUSINESS! DON'T USE THIS GUY AND HIS BAND UNLESS YOU DONT CARE ABOUT HOW DISRESPECTFUL HE IS AND HOW HE TALK ABOUT YOUR GUESTS! ENJOY!

I was married this past July 2013 and this review is WAY overdue. Time Machine Band absolutely rocked the house at my wedding. 7 months later and my guests are still talking about how amazing the band was and the pure talent they have. They literally had a packed dance floor the entire night and played such a terrific array of music that really made it enjoyable for all our guests no matter what age. They even were accommodating enough to work a surprise out with my brother who is a percussionist and they set up to allow him to play a few sets with them as an extra surprise for my husband an I. Time Machine, thank you for helping to make my wedding day a dream come true!

Choosing Silk for our wedding was by far one of the best decisions we made during the wedding planning process. It is obvious that all of the members genuinely love what they are doing and it certainly shows when they are performing. Our wedding guests are still raving about the awesome music- they covered it all! They were certainly not like any other band that we looked into. We would not hesitate to recommend Silk to anyone looking for a party band.

Time Machine Entertainment was by far the best vendor of my wedding on July 19, 2012. They were easy to work with, pleasant, talented, energetic, and most importantly reliable. All of our guests went crazy for the band and are still talking about them and how much they enjoyed our wedding. The band is unique and gets the guests on the floor and pumped. They actually come out in the middle of the dance floor at times and perform amongst the crowd with their instruments and everything.
I would highly recommend hiring Time Machine Entertainment for an unforgetable event. Half of my family is Egyptian so I was able to make a CD of arabic songs I wanted to be played at the reception and the DJ did a great job at making sure everything went smoothly.
Thanks so much Time Machine Entertainment for making our wedding more than what we were hoping for!

Pros: The band was super lively and energetic, and our guests were dancing non-stop all night. Everyone went on and on about how the band was incredible, and aside from the venue and us getting married of course, I do think it “made” the wedding. The keyboardist also learned all of our ceremony songs for us and did them beautifully, which is something they normally don’t do. They also allowed my dad to plug his movie into their soundboard and this also went off without a hitch.

Cons: First of all, I tried to reach the band multiple beforehand to go over everything, and they kept telling me it was too early. Finally, as had a meeting about a week before the wedding, where I requested that the ending to our dance be extended by a few notes, to which the manager replied “you should have asked for that months ago”….I tried and tried!! Also, according to our paperwork, it says the band will not play ANY line dancing unless requested in writing, where I promptly wrote NO LINE DANCES. In our meeting, I went over this again, and they also told me the band will take no requests day of the wedding, so if someone requests a line dance they will not play it. We also asked that Journey “Don’t Stop Believin” would be the last song. Lo and behold, after journey was played, the band leader announced “and now by the request of a guest,” and played the freaking cha cha slide. In addition, we had to ask the band multiple times to announce the photobooth which they kept forgetting. Also, we requested only 2-3 slow songs but they played more, and also we requested that they play dance music right away after the toasts, but they played dinner music, and when we told them, they abruptly burst into the Hava Nigila which started off very awkwardly because of that, but all of those things ended up ok. The cha-cha slide and awkward hava nigila were the only two moments of my wedding I did not enjoy.

Bottom Line: Time Machine are professionals and overall really did an amazing job, with all of our guests raving about them. I gave a B+ however because the communication both before and during the wedding was really poor. If you book them, I also recommend filling out all 15 songs you want them to play.

I received compliments from every single guest at my wedding. Even when I had issues with my ceremony band, Time Machine helped smooth everything out. I can only hope my friends book them too so I can have a kick-ass time again.

Time Machine was amazing! They played all night, taking very few breaks. From the first song, the dance floor was packed and they kept it that way all night. Their singers are so diverse, that they are able to play all types of music. Joe Corey listened to my ideas and worked with me to make the night spectacular. The band was interactive with the guests, which was a hit. They really made my wedding amazing and I highly recommend using them.

Blew my guests out of the water!!! We are now a year out from the wedding and my guests continue to comment that we had one of the best bands they've ever heard. From the moment the reception started, the band was interactive and outgoing and had my guests on the dance floor. The whole experience, from meeting with the band to follow-up emails/ calls was nothing but pleasurable and stress-free. We had some last minute changes and they were extremely accommodating. The talent of these performers/artists/musicians is above all other!!!

Joe Corey and The Time Machine exceeded our expectations! Not only were the packages reasonably priced, Joe was personable and attentive to every question throughout the planning process. The Time Machine was excellent to work with - very organized, willing to learn songs for our wedding, and personable. We were able to work with them closely in selecting music for our wedding. The dance floor was PACKED the entire evening as we had hoped. The musicians were tremendous and skilled across instruments and vocals. They interacted on the dance floor in a friendly, non-obtrusive manner to engage our guests.

The only semi-negative aspect was the photographer for The Time Machine. We did not realize the Time Machine came with a PR photographer themselves and were disheartened when he was on the dance floor. After he was approached by our photographer, he did stop photographing the evening and respected our wishes. I sincerely appreciated their professionalism and courtesy even more.

The Time Machine itself was fabulous! We cannot recommend them highly enough. Joe Corey and his fellow musicians made our wedding celebration even more joyous!

BEST BAND EVER! AMAZING Band! This band lives up to their reputation - they are unbelievable! I cannot say enough about how awesome they are. They are a serious PARTY band - if you are looking for a great time and every guest to have fun - this is the band for you. Every one of their 13-member band gets out on the dance floor and engages with the crowd. From start to finish they were the life of the party - the dance floor was packed all night long! They were great to work with - we were slightly hesitant because they restricted us to requesting only 15 songs - but it didn't matter because everything they played was just fantastic. Worth every penny, and they worked with you on price. Honestly, they should be one of the first vendors you call for availability because they book up quick - worth changing the date for them - that are THAT good!

I saw the Time Machine at a friend's wedding back in 2008 and knew that if I ever got married, I wanted to have them at my wedding.

They provided a jazz trio to play during our cocktail hour, then the full band for the reception. They did a wonderful job! I think the music and the food really make an event like a wedding, and EVERYONE at our wedding danced the entire time. They put on a wonderful show!

I do have a bad comment regarding their DJ. They brought a DJ to play music during the band's breaks, which was great. However, during the evening when the band was playing, he came onto the dance floor and did two terrible things.

1) He got in the way of the photographers that we hired to shoot our wedding. I understand that he wanted promotional pictures for the band, but he was terrible and seemed very inconsiderate to my photographers who were just trying to do the job they were hired for, and very inconsiderate to us.

2) This is by far the worse of two evils. I was told after the wedding, by several different guests, that this same guy (lDJ/photographer with the long blonde ponytail) GROPED AT LEAST TWO OF OUR GUESTS. These were very attractive women who were wives of two of my bosses. Apparently he was getting grabby and touched their rear ends. I can't even explain how horrified/mortified I was to learn that this happened.

Unfortunately this one guy really brought down the whole experience for us. I hate to give a bad rating, because the band, as a whole, is phenomenal. This one guy, however, is a huge liability. I would suggest that they find another DJ and let him go immediately.

Cannot say enough good things about the Silk Band (which is part of Time Machine Group Entertainment). From the moment the band started playing, everyone was up out of their seats dancing. Booking this band was by far the best decision we made. They may seem pricey but they are honestly worth every penny. Very professional and easy to work with as well.

I was reluctant to book a band over a DJ mainly because of the cost, but I knew that in the end I would be happier with the quality of music and the atmosphere that a live band could provide, so we went ahead and booked them. Leading up to the wedding they were wonderful, we had consultations, reviewed the song preferences in advance, they reassured me time and time again that nothing would get mixed up. Well, they got the first dance right and the ceremonial father/daughter and mother/son correct too, thank goodness. But, my husband and I asked very specifically for NO disco music. We wrote on the sheet, no disco music please, we talked to the band leader- no disco music, please, we talked to the Time Machine coordinator- TWICE-- no disco music, please. We were completely ignored and the first twenty minute block of music was all disco. Other problems were that they must have completely disreagarded the request list that we had given them in advance because none of the sentimental songs we had wanted to hear that night were played. Finally my husband had to literally drag the band director aside during our wedding and try to explain to him all the problems. It wasn't worth the aggrivation because he didn't really care that he had ignored us-- the bill had already been paid. I will say, in fairness, the quality of the music was great, but it wasn't anything that we wanted to hear at our wedding. Nothing could have ruined that day for us, but the band came as close as anything could have.

Time Machine Entertainment responded with the following comments:

I would like to reply to your concerns. The band in question is The Silk Band. We have addressed your concerns with the band leader. There was no "Disco" music played at your wedding. The music which you interpreted as "Disco" was " Current Dance" music Not disco. Before each wedding every request is burned onto a CD and given to our band leader. All of your requested were indeed played during your wedding. You may not have been in the room at the time and therefore did not hear them all. But the list was completely checked. The most important thing is that we understand your wedding was a success and your guests had a great time. We take pride in everything we do and our quality of entertainment is unmatched. That is the reason we again have been voted best of weddings for 2011. We respect your opinion. but, In our 35 years in the wedding industry we have never heard a negative comment about our bands, Time Machine Or Silk in this regard. Music is an art and we are artist, we realize that everyone's musical taste varies. We wish you luck in your future years together. Sincerely Time Machine Entertainment.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING is the only way to describe the Time Machine. A friend of mine used them for her wedding last year and my father said we HAD to use them...it was the best decision we made. People have not stopped calling us to tell us how great they were. Our guests danced from the first song until we were getting kicked out!
They played every kind of song imaginable and each one was better than the next. Joe was great to work with and made me feel at ease through the whole wedding planning process. Don't think twice about hiring them!!

Awesome, awesome, awesome. Book them now and don't look back!

We remembered this band from a wedding we went to 2 years before our wedding and booked them as soon as we got engaged. Not only did we have a blast, we've heard from so many guests about the great time they had and how much they LOVED this band.

Time Machine does not succumb to line dances, cheesy traditions (unless you ask for them), or a dull line-up of 'wedding party standards' - instead they play (and sing!) the most current dance hits with a great mix of classics. They're out on the floor, dancing and singing with you and your guests. We had guests whom we've never known to dance, busting it on the dance floor with Time Machine.

I wish I was having another wedding just to invite Time Machine back again!

The Time Machine Band and all of its members including Joe are absolutely amazing. I am an extremely particular (picky) person who did a lot of work reviewing several bands. I could not have made a BETTER choice. Not only were they ALL energetic and talented but they were courteous and professional. This band will MAKE your wedding. I got married at the Venetian in Garfield and they are completely familiar with the facility and come highly recommended. I also had the plasma screens and one of the members took photos of our guests and displayed them on the screens. They also showed our montage. They play all genres of music and you will not be disappointed. Almost all of our 230 guests were on the dance floor ---all night long. EVERYONE complemented this band and I have friends who already calling them to book them. Trust Me..... book them!

Time Machine is the greatest wedding band ever! They worked with my fiance and I to stay within our budget. We had a string ensemble for our cocktail hour and a nine-piece band for our reception. A DJ played through any breaks. They really know how to involve everyone. They have wireless mics and instruments so they come out on the dance floor with everyone! Our guests are still raving about the band weeks after our wedding! I would highly recommend ime Machine to any bride and groom!

Time Machine Entertainment has two bands - The Silk Band and The Time Machine Band. We originally saw the Time Machine Band at one of my bridesmaids' weddings a year and a half before ours. They were FANTASTIC and we HAD to have them at our wedding... They worked with us to stay in budget. Our band was our splurge, but they were worth EVERY PENNY. We had a 15 piece band with a DJ playing the breaks... a keyboard player did our cocktail hour. They kept the entire wedding moving, they even got MY GRANDPARENTS up and on the dance floor! They do a wide variety of music that everyone can enjoy. This band is the reason my husband and I looked forward to our wedding!!! I HIGHLY recommend them to everyone!
