"Booking Empire State Soul was truly the best decision we made when planning our wedding. Every step of the way the band had our best interests in mind. Sean was professional, responsive, and trustworthy from our very first interaction with him. Art helped us navigate some tricky questions regarding stage set up and electrical requirements, even when the planner had no idea how to help. They both helped guide us in making a musical plan for the night that included music for all the age groups attending the wedding. They thought of everything, from song transitions, to when my father should speak, to how to make sure the night went smoothly with tricky family members. I truly felt like I had my own personal wedding planner with Empire State Soul. The actual performance at our wedding was truly the stuff of legend. The band was incredible. As a musician myself, I was picky about choosing a band and I couldn't have been happier with my choice. They were professional, energetic, incredible musicians, and amazing dancers! They had our whole crowd dancing the entire night. Six months after our wedding we are still hearing about how amazing Empire State Soul was! You will never, ever regret booking this band!!"

"When my wife and I got married, we focused on the three things we felt make a wedding memorable: an open bar, good food and live music. Open bar and good food is pretty easy fare for New York, but as you do your research you'll find that the wedding bands here are typically either a.) pretty good but overpriced or b.) reasonably priced and dreadful. Enter Empire State Soul. Not only was the price point terrific, but the band is phenomenal. Just how good are they? We were married two years ago and we STILL have guests bringing up the band whenever we run into them. The band puts on a show that needs to be seen to be believed and will be remembered long after the night is over. On the other side of the coin, they were literally the easiest vendors of the night. They got there early, emceed the entire event, and kept everybody involved for the entire affair. From three years old to ninety, everybody was on the floor and having a great time. Of the close to twenty different vendors we had at our wedding, Empire State Soul won MVP of the night and is easily the most requested phone number we've had since. Book them! You won't be disappointed."
