Four-Piece String Band

A Perfect Choice for Cocktail Hour

"The Loyales [string band's] rootsy acoustics drew us out to join our guests immediately because we didn't want to miss out on any of the fun.

The Stripped-Down Sound

A subset of The Loyales' acclaimed dance band, the "string band" is perfect for the early moments in a wedding, (ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner), or at any event that calls for fun background music. 

The Loyales 4-Piece "STRING" BAND: Featuring The Loyales' two lead vocalists, playing acoustic guitar and percussion, lead guitarist on mandolin and bass player on upright bass, the string band draws from a huge songbook of warm soulful classics, sung with spot-on vocal harmonies.

"...like a living, breathing jukebox, full of expertly curated 45s."

The Experience

For weddings and parties, Milton (lead singer and bandleader) begins his exquisite curation of the party setlist from the very first phone call with each client.

The Loyales setlist is steeped in so many different styles, the band can go in almost any direction needed to keep the party rolling, including 50s-90s classics, R&B, funk, classic rock, reggae, country, and more.  You can have as little or as much of each style at your wedding.

"[They] played to the mood of each part of the night beautifully."

Minor (wedding client)

A real band that just happens to play weddings.

The Loyales band is actually the party cover band version of the band that normally backs up the soulful singer-songwriter, Milton. Milton runs the band and sings.

"They knew just what to play during the cocktail hour to get the party going."

Rave Reviews

We love the Loyales! Working with them in advance of the wedding was very easy, they made us feel well taken care of, happily answering lots of questions and providing great advice about music selection. Their performance the day of was spectacular. They honored the original artist's songs while also adding their special touch. We would highly recommend the Loyales for anyone we meet. Music is such an important part of our lives and integral to any wedding, without the Loyales, our wedding wouldn't have been as special as it was.

It is impossible to put into words how important this band was to making our big day one for the books, but we'll try our best. Aaron and Milton both made sure we felt comfortable and accommodated from the very start. Feeling confident that our musically "scrutinous" crowd would be satisfied, the Loyales exceeded every high expectation up until the final note. The processional music was a perfect complement to the beauty and personality of our ceremony, and although my partner and I planned to retreat to a private space for the bulk of the cocktail hour the Loyales' rootsy acoustics drew us out to join our guests immediately because we didn't want to miss out on any of the fun.  The music was perfectly curated, all our requested songs were played seamlessly (including the first dance) and the band performed at a level that I have never personally experienced at a wedding. The Loyales are deserving of any and all accolades; they are a first class New York institution and made our wedding memorable for everyone in attendance. Book them ASAP!!!
