Boston Wedding Bands


Read on to see what has made Empire State Soul one of New York City's best wedding bands.

Empire State Soul set out to change a long held misconception: that live band performances at weddings, function, and other special events are a thing of the past. As a group of close musical friends from Berklee College of Music in Boston, we felt as if we had something to offer as an elite NYC wedding band. In a short time, Empire State Soul has risen above the rest to become one of New York's finest performing acts.

Empire State Soul's reputation brings the band across the region - from New York City, to the Hamptons, to update New York, New Jersey, and New England. Whether it’s a black tie gala at one of New York's historic societal buildings, or a rustic gathering upstate; a beach-side wedding in the Hamptons, or a country-chic affair in Connecticut, Empire State Soul has done it all. We lean on this experience every week to provide a perfectly tuned performance from your NYC wedding band.

Our performances are based on a finely curated repertoire, something we've developed through years of experience as a New York wedding band. You probably noticed the “Soul” in our name. We do in fact love soul music. However, we want to make sure you are aware that we love all genres of music, from pop to rock and everything in between. Over the years, we’ve developed a deep understanding of what will keeps eclectic groups of family and friends on the dance floor.


Empire State Soul is proud to feature 100% live audio in our video features so you know exactly how we sound live. No studio gimmicks; this is your band.
