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.
The premier ’80’s-covering wedding band.” – Paper Magazine
The Engagements cater to couples looking for a unique alternative to the typical, cookie-cutter wedding. This 10-piece band plays a ton of 80’s dance song covers, along with rare soul and Motown. Their set lists are full of songs that haven’t been played to death at weddings.
Originally created to play at a musician friend’s wedding, the band has since entertained for weddings and parties of every size and ilk. Along the way, the group has built a reputation as a unique, “un-wedding-band” wedding band.
The Engagements is comprised of a group of professional musician friends. Their members have toured in the bands of some recognizable acts – from Michael McDonald, to Michael Buble, to Sharon Jones and French Kicks.
<—Check out their videos<— The Engagements cover songs by artists like Human League, Eurythmics, Al Green, Michael Jackson, Hall N Oates, David Bowie, and more…
There is only one word to describe your band and that is FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so glad my daughter “found” you and hired you to perform at her wedding. We are a music (and food) loving family and felt along with the food the music was most important. You certainly met all of our expectations for which we are most appreciative. I want you to know that I thought you were great and if I had more children to marry off I would hire you in a flash. Thanks for making our daughter’s wedding reception so memorable. Sincerely,” – Ellie F., Wedding in Brooklyn, NY
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. You really sounded great, and provided the perfect mood the entire evening. Exactly what we were hoping for, but better! The trio at the ceremony was on point, and “book of love” was beautiful, too. Really appeciate how flexible and accommodating you guys were. Hope the trip home was ok. Thanks again.” – Dave W. – Wedding in MA
You guys were absolutely amazing last night. Every single song was perfect, and the set list couldn’t have been better. The songs you learned especially for us turned out INCREDIBLE!! I cannot thank you enough for making the party unreal – all the buzz this morning was about how talented you all were – every single musician was awesome. I didn’t personally hear the music at the knoll, but it also got rave reviews. Would you guys have the set list from last night perchance? Thanks again for making this the best night of my life.” – Camilla, Wedding in New Marlborough, MA
Dear Engagements: A much delayed, but nevertheless sincere thank you from Eric and me. Our wedding was a magical event and your band, The Engagements, contributed to the celebratory feel. Everyone, ranging in age from 10 to 90, enjoyed your music and danced the night away; we could not have asked for better music.
We also want to thank you for being adaptable. I am sure it is not easy preparing for an event when you have never been to the location and the bride and groom live out of the country and are occasionally inaccessible; thank you for your flexibility and calm manner.
If there is anything we can do to provide a positive review of you band please let us know. If future brides and grooms would like a contact we offer our services.” – Sophia – Wedding in CT
Possibly one of the best cover bands in the history of the universe.” – GowanusYourFaceOff.com
We just LOVE you guys SO MUCH! I’m back in the swing of things and outrageously happy to be married… and happy that you helped make it such a phenomenal success. I keep getting emails that look a little like this: “Best. Wedding. Ever.” So I would say that constitutes a success.” – Vanessa & Jeff – Wedding in upstate NY
We loved working with you guys. Your band was great – you guys are fantastic musicians and all the music – from the ceremony processionals to the late night dancing – was perfect.” – Marissa & Matt – Wedding in the Hamptons
Dear Engagements, Julie and I can’t thank you enough for adding so much enjoyment to our wedding celebration. Not only did you blow the roof of the party with all of our favorites, but you expertly read the crowd and made some adjustments to appeal to all of our guests while continuously playing your brand of 80s inspired covers. We got so many comments from people of all ages about how amazing you all are and how fun and professional you all are. You made the entire process as stress free and easy as possible and were, although a very distant second to my gorgeous bride, one of the highlights of the wedding. We can’t thank you enough! Thank you so much, Regards,” – Doug & Julie, Wedding in Mamaroneck, NY
You were absolutely fabulous at our wedding last night! Totally amazing, incredibly fun. There were a lot of musicians in our crowd and everyone loved you. Thank you so much” – Julie F., Wedding in Brooklyn, NY
We hired The Engagements for our Wedding in October and we loved them! The band is incredibly talented. They came highly recommended by a few friends who are professional musicians and they did not disappoint. They played a wide variety of music from Jazz standards, to Motown, to rock, to eighties, and always sounded fantastic! We listened to many other groups in NYC and Philadelphia, and have heard a ton of other bands at weddings, but The Engagements are definitely the best. They are professional and never overbearing but they got everyone up dancing. We still are hearing comments from our family and friends months later!” – Peter & Katie, Wedding in Princeton, NJ
I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done – you are so kind and wonderful to negotiate with – I certainly will recommend you to everyone I know and hopefully you can play our 25th wedding anniversary??? LOL Sincere Thanks!” – Anne & Rich, Wedding in Brooklyn, NY
We had a wedding with a very mixed crowd, older relatives, kids, and a ton of musicians who are hard to please. The Engagements rocked the house with great creativity and musicality. Note: this is not your typical cover band–The Engagements are all musicians of the highest caliber from the New York scene who have decided to combine their love of pop music with a commercial venture. They are real professionals, tasteful, great sound, great presentation. It was perfect for our Wedding, because we needed a group that could cover classic material without sounding cheesy. The Engagements had a huge song list, with tons of great songs that we wouldn’t have even thought of, from Sinatra to Stevie Wonder to Hall and Oates. If you’re looking some something a cut above a standard cover band, The Engagements are worth it.” – Miles and Pavani, Wedding in Queens, NY
