The best band there is!! We’ve had the pleasure of seeing them live in NYC as well as for our wedding. Not only are they the most talented ensemble, but they are absolutely wonderful to work with and made our special day even better. From start to finish they threw the BEST party, performing classics and new hits, no one could dance enough. They created the most beautiful ceremony ambience followed by cocktail hour and reception. The best part, we’ve all become friends. LOVE YOU GUYS 🙏🏼

NY Jukebox was fantastic at our wedding last month. From start to finish, Pam was great to work with. It was easy to pick songs from their set list and they even learned three new songs of our choice. The ceremony songs were flawless, the saxophone/guitar duo for the cocktail hour was perfect for the venue/vibe and the hybrid ensemble (2 singers, guitar, sax, DJ) was better than we could have imagined. Our dance floor was packed the whole night! We got married at The River Cafe in downtown Brooklyn which is a smaller venue with strict requirements for band size, song volume etc. NY Jukebox did a great job accommodating all of the requirements and at the same time put on a stellar show. We would definitely recommend NY Jukebox for any party, wedding or otherwise.

5 stars and beyond!!! NY Jukebox was the highlight of our wedding. First, we called NY Jukebox over a year out from our wedding and Pam was so incredibly helpful and thorough from the start. We had several calls together over a year that helped us plan the perfect music plan for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Most wedding bands are corny as hell. This band is not! They set the perfect tone for the ceremony and cocktail hour, and then rocked the hell out of our reception. All of the band members are supremely talented and left our guests amazed, and then tired from all the dancing. Book this band and you won't regret it

We can’t thank and praise NY Jukebox enough! Vinny and Pam were amazing to work with and made every step of the process as easy as possible for us. They had never played at our venue before, but were super flexible in working with us to tour the space and prepare appropriately for the wedding. We appreciated that they were clearly invested in putting on a good show! NY Jukebox really nailed the perfect playlist for us and all our guests. Our entire guest list raved about how good the band was and the dance floor was full and energetic the whole night. They truly sounded better than any live band (professional, wedding, etc) I've ever heard. We are so happy we chose NY Jukebox. Details: Wedding was in the indoor main hall of the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn. We ended up having the full band option w/ 6 musicians (drums, guitar, bass, piano, two horns) and two singers. We highly recommend this choice. Each musician brought their A-game and every song they played sounded vibrant and full. Nothing they played sounded like just a cover. Many thanks again to Vinny and Pam and the rest of NY Jukebox for making our reception a blast!

Booking NY Jukebox was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! We had a medium size wedding of ~100 people, but our dance floor couldn't accommodate both a full band and adequate space for dancing. We booked the hybrid option, which is something neither of us had heard of. It ended up being perfect - gave us the energy that only live music can give while allowing plenty of space for our guests to dance. The 5 piece option packed a punch and our guests are still commenting on the music. From the beginning, Pam was so easy to work with and incredibly responsive. She was patient with all of our questions and worked easily both with us and our planner. We gave very vague direction on the song list for the reception, just requesting a mix across genres appealing to a variety of ages. We're so glad we weren't prescriptive with our requests! The group read the room and kept the dance floor going all night! Outside of being incredibly talented, the group was so kind and genuinely excited to be part of our special day. Book NY Jukebox for your wedding - you won't regret it!

Just have to say from the start that our day would definitely not have been nearly as much fun without NY Jukebox. They made the day feel like such an amazing, fun, and high-end event with the most talented and professional musicians and singers I've ever seen at a wedding. If this review sounds really over the top it's because they are really that good and I think worth every penny. From the beginning of wedding planning I was dreading finding the right entertainment. For some reason that just seemed really daunting. We planned a medium size wedding with about 70-75 guests. I didn't feel like hiring only a DJ was right for us to get a good energy level in the room with a smaller group, but I was nervous about finding a band with the right sound too.
From the first conversation, Vinny was SO responsive and excited about our wedding. Vinny invited us to go see them play live at a local bar in NYC and it was SO MUCH FUN. I got to meet Vinny and Pam and they're just the absolute nicest people and that's really what I wanted to surround myself with working on our wedding. Also the sound and vibes in the crowd was even more amazing then on video. So we chose NY Jukebox for our wedding and I'm soooo happy we did! The process was so smooth working together from start to finish. Even during the stressful times of planning, when I'd talk to Vinny he'd remind me what a fun day it was going to be and that they were so excited and it always made me feel a little better and remember it was going to be a really special day! I really can't say enough about how nice it is to have a vendor who you feel cares as much about your day as you do.
We asked them to perform both at our cocktail hour and reception. For the cocktail hour they did guitar and saxophone playing jazz and bossa nova which created a really nice chill but upscale environment for people to hang out and chat with each other. For the reception we had the DJ, saxophone, guitar, and two vocalists. Again, it was just so. much. fun. The sound of all the musicians and DJ is just so good, energetic, and exciting. Their song list has a wide variety and caters to everybody. All generations will feel included. They clearly know how to get the volume right for the space (ours was a small ish venue), it was never so loud that people couldn't still talk and catch up with each other at their tables but just loud enough to have people get excited to dance.
Even though we have some more reserved family members, I still noticed them up and dancing. Our friends were literally up and dancing until the very last song when the reception ended, we had such an amazing night. I will recommend NY Jukebox to anyone! In fact many of our guests have already asked about them for people they know who are wedding planning. Thank you guys for everything!!
