Manhattan City Music
My husband and I got married at the Maritime Parc on 9/18. Victor Lesser and his band did a terrific job on the day of. They kept the party moving and Victor is a terrific band leader. We got great reviews from our guests.
One thing of note - we gave the band sheet music for a specific song that my dad and I were going to dance to in MARCH. When it came to the song, the female singer did not know the words and she messed up the song. We were disappointed about this, especially when we gave them ample time to learn it.
Victor definitely got the party started. He knew exactly what to play and when. I would definitely recommend him.
Overall, they played what we wanted, sounded good and kept the dance floor packed. Victor is a nice guy and on the day of the wedding made sure we were happy with how things were going all throughout the night. We had a 9 piece band and had 2 musicians for the ceremony and cocktail hour. The only issue we had was that for the first half hour of the reception they had problems with the cordless mics and there was a ton of feedback (loud banging noises) that everyone noticed and commented on. A good friend is a professional musician and plays with wedding bands in NYC all the time and said it was something easily corrected. We felt it took them too long to fix the issues, especially for a band that is a preferred vendor at the Yale Club and plays there pretty often.
I worked with Victor Lessor and he was amazing ! Fun to work with so accommodating to all of the guests request.
