WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING:
Just wanted to say thanks for such a great performance. You guys rocked! Everyone had a blast, and the term "best band ever" was thrown about multiple times.
We’re pleased to announce Baby Soda Jazz Band is featured in the Summer 2013 issue of New York Weddings as a “Wedding Band That Rocks”:
This band plays the kind of music you hope to hear, with a Sazerac in hand, on the thoroughfares of New Orleans’ French Quarter. Baby Soda’s effervescent, brassy, upbeat sound keeps your guests on the dance floor well into the night.”

Originally created to play at a picky friend’s wedding, The Engagements have earned a reputation as a unique, “anti-wedding-band” wedding band. Comprised of some top-flight professional musician friends who share a love of hand claps and synthesizers, they’ve found a warm reception from couples seeking music outside the typical “wedding band” offerings. Their band members have toured in the bands of some recognizable acts – from Michael McDonald and Michael Buble, to Sharon Jones and French Kicks.
Prepare to bop to this 10-piece band’s high-energy, faithful 70s, 80s, and 90s favorites, while avoiding monsters of every size, shape, and color. -Featuring the music of The Smiths, Michael Jackson, Simple Minds, Eurythmics, The Cars, Blondie, Talking Heads, and much more.
For the 7th year in a row, Lucy Music proudly provided a quartet for the cocktail hour of the New York Rangers annual charity golf outing.
The NY Rangers is a great organization, and they gave us strong direction about the upbeat mood they wanted us to sustain.
Our quartet consisted of organ, guitar, drums, and saxophone. We performed a mix of blues, funk, and jazz, with a lot of soul thrown in, as per the direction of the music-loving Rangers.
It was an honor to work with the staff of the Rangers once again, and we’re so happy to have been lucky with the weather at the Westchester Country Club in Rye, NY!
Our 10-piece 80s cover band The Engagements is playing Friday night and you’re totally invited! It’s the “Cruel Summer” 80s Dance Party.
Performing songs by The Cure, Simple Minds, Hall N Oates, Cameo, Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna, GoGos, The Fixx, & more.
This Friday, August 10, come party with “possibly one of the best cover bands in the universe” (GowanusYourFaceOff.com) at The Bell House in Brooklyn.

All night long the Bell House will be serving special $6 cocktails that just happen to be named after things that *might* remind you of the night’s theme: the Rum DMC, the Bananarama, and The Miami Vice, plus the trashiest snack ever, Doritos and nacho cheese (it’s like we’re making the midnight 7-Eleven run for you!)

From the previous Engagements Bell House show – the “Undead 80s Zombie Prom”:
“Hordes of Zombies showed up as midnight approached to a dance their faces off! The Engagements, possible one of the best cover bands in the history of the universe, opened the show with a slightly altered version of 1999 in which 99′ was substituted for 89 to match the night’s theme. This was the first of many amazing Prince’s covered featured throughout the night. One the three lead singers, who was dressed as Death, belted out the voice & soul of Prince which shocked the audience because his talent was simply unbelievable. The other singers as well as the entire band produced some of the greatest sounds of 80′s music that we have ever heard. If you ever need a band for a special event or wedding The Engagements are the way to go.
We danced the night away until we felt as dead as all the Zombies in the room. It was one of those nights that was so amazing that words simply can’t do it justice. If you ever hear the words “Undead” and “Bell House” in the same sentence be a part of whatever it is! Thanks Bell House for making us go gaga for Zombies!” – GowanusYourFaceOff.com
We filmed The Affections at The Bell House last month. What a fun show this was!
