The Engagements is an “alt-wedding band” based in Brooklyn, NY that plays a lot of 80’s covers, along with rare soul and Motown.

“The eleven instrument swappers who crowd The Engagements’ stage can do straight-up hits, but they’d rather be rocking ‘This Charming Man.’” – New York Magazine

“The premier ’80’s-covering wedding band.” – Paper Mag

The Engagements players have logged hours in the studio and on the road with the likes of Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings, Steely Dan, Harry Belafonte, Mali Music, Kat Edmonson, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Robin McKelle, French Kicks, David Byrne, Slick Rick, The Sweet Divines, John Forte, Michael Bublé, Mobb Deep, Maxwell, & Aloe Blacc.
