From the producers of NYC’s best wedding fair, Wedding Crashers, comes the best live wedding band showcase, Rock the Wedding Bells. The acts they curate aren’t just good wedding bands, they’re great bands in their own right, filled with gigging musicians who’ve performed with Psychedelic Furs, The Ramones, Jay-Z, Ryan Adams, Norah Jones, AIR and more.
Whether your vision includes a pop string quartet who can cover the Smiths, Prohibition-era jazz, 80s jams, classic rock, R&B or soul, you’ll hear the best bands in New York to rock your wedding.
6:30pm DOORS OPEN
Front Room: 7:00 – Baby Soda Jazz Band
“With your eyes closed, you could have been on Bourbon Street.” -NY Daily News.
Baby Soda is an acoustic, energetic band that sings and swings. Their classic sound is rooted in Prohibition-era swing, New Orleans jazz, and southern gospel music. At weddings, their joyful performances resonate with all guests, young and old. “Keeps your guests on the dance floor well into the night.” – New York Magazine Weddings
Front Room: 7:40 – Tribute String Quartet –
The Pop and Rock String Quartet
This group’s interpretations of your favorite songs by Hall ‘N’ Oates, Elton John, Sam Cooke, and Journey set them far apart from the crowded world of wedding string quartets. Plus, if you take advantage of their ability to create custom arrangements of your own special requests, it’s like having a personal mini-orchestra for your wedding.
Front Room: 8:20 – The Affections –
“A no-nonsense dance party.” – Our agent.
This gaggle of musician friends put The Affections together as a side project to play a family friend’s wedding a number of years back, but the invitations to play keep coming. Expect to dance to live, unhinged covers of Chuck Berry, Elvis, Sly Stone, Talking Heads, Michael Jackson, Sam the Sham & The Pharaohs, Kinks, Clash, Stones, James Brown, Blondie, and more.
Main Stage: 8:40 – The Loyales
“The best wedding band because they weren’t a wedding band.” – Joel Stein, TIME
Brooklyn cover band The Loyales offers a multitude of musical genre options (with the exception of contemporary Top 40). Lead singer and bandleader Milton easily shifts from rare oldies, to classic rock, to soul, or even country.
