Live Music for Special Events NY, Long Island
It’s exhausting to go through a list of bands that play live music for special events in NY and Long Island and, after doing some research, realize that most of them are just “okay” and probably won’t really get you or the atmosphere you’re striving to create for your special event, whether its in New York City, Upstate, New Jersey or anywhere on Long Island.
If you’re looking for more than okay, reach out to Jimmy Greenwood, leader of Average Bar Band, at 212.989.6331 to find if we’re the right band to create unforgettable live music for your event.
We perform live at weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, corporate and holiday events and we always do a whole lot more than just show up and play. We take the time to understand the event you’re planning and adapt our playlist and sound accordingly.
Crowds of all ages in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Westchester, Rockland County, Upstate New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and throughout New Jersey and Long Island have loved our music and offered rave reviews and testimonials because Average Bar Band is a tight-knit, five-member New York-based group that isn’t afraid to travel for important occasions—weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and other significant life events.
Or just for a great live music party.
We’re adaptable, prepared and always on schedule (We plan for traffic!), but don’t choose us for special event for that reason. We want you to pick Average Bar Band for your New York live music event because we’re talented, polished musicians committed to creating great music and to making your event memorable.
A soulful and grooving rock cover band with a little R&B mixed in, Average Bar Band rehearses 3-5 times a week and we’re constantly updating and expanding our set list to include both new numbers and additional standards. We respect all great music from the 1950s to today, and strongly believe in collaborating with you, your special guests and even your party planner to include songs that are right.
With Average Bar Band, you’ll be experiencing live music created by musicians who’ve played with Norah Jones, Lauryn Hill, Gloria Estefan, The Teenagers (“Why Do Fools Fall In Love“) and The Chiffons (“He‘s So Fine“), among many others. One of our sub guitarists showcased for Clive Davis.

Whatever the size of your live music event, we can adapt to the venue size, acoustics and ambiance you want to create. Average Bar Band features five regular members who have played hundreds of gigs together and rehearsed for many, many hours. We also sound great as a three- or four-piece band, and can play the same repertoire with acoustic guitars, instead of electric guitars, and hand percussion instead of a drum kit.
It’s our job to give the client what they want, and play the music like we wrote it ourselves. Contact bandleader Jimmy Greenwood at 212.989.6331 to find if we’re the right band to create unforgettable live music for your special event.
