Long Island Wedding Rock Band
And a lot of the bands promoting themselves for live music for special events on New York and Long Island made up of competent musicians who’ll show up on time and play a solid set from a predetermined playlist.
But what if you want more? What if you’re looking for a band that’s truly “a band,” one that’s spent thousands of hours playing and rehearsing together? After that, finding a band with a leader who truly takes the time to understand you, your taste in music, and how that music can fit into the event you’re planning? Will it be an intimate gathering? A serious party? An event for folks in their 20 and 30s or ages eight to 80? It all matters and, when you take the time to consider Average Bar Band for your New York or Long Island Wedding, we’ll take the time to understand the event you’re planning and adapt our playlist and sound accordingly.
Long Island Wedding Classic Rock Band
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 party.
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.
We’re adaptable, prepared and always on schedule (We plan for traffic!), but don’t choose us 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. Our subs are just as good as our main members, and have the websites, videos, mp3s and reviews to prove it.
We love to play and sing, and audiences respond very positively to our love of music. You should consider choosing Average Bar Band because while we certainly have songs we like to play and play well – we don’t dictate a playlist to clients unless they ask us to. We work with clients to make a song list of their choices. We‘re happy to learn new tunes that you pick for us. - READ OUR REVIEWS !!! – click here.
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. So our sound can fill a ballroom or create just the right ambiance for a quiet, intimate event in a much smaller venue.
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 New York or Long Island event.
