New Jersey Wedding BandWe like to think that if Bruce Springsteen heard our New Jersey Wedding Rock Band he would smile. His lyrics and music have put New Jersey in our hearts, and we try to bring the same soul and poetry to our cover tunes as Bruce does to his music. We are a New York-based rock cover band that loves to travel, the five members of Average Bar Band know that New Jersey is the birthplace of Bruce, Frank Sinatra, Bon Jovi, Whitney Houston, The Rascals, Donald Fagan, The Shirelles, The Four Seasons, Kool And The Gang, George Clinton, Stone Temple Pilots, Count Basie, Bill Evans, Wayne Shorter and Southside Johnny And The Asbury Jukes. We may just be the perfect band to make your New Jersey wedding unforgettable.
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.
Your wedding may be the biggest day of your life. We get it. And we do much more than offer a generic wedding day song list. Average Bar Band collaborates with brides, grooms, wedding planners and even close family members to create the perfect playlist for your wedding. If you have a special song we don’t know already, we’ll learn it, rehearse it and sing it on your wedding day like we wrote it ourselves.
Our goal is to match your taste in music and create the feeling you want to create on the biggest day of your life!
Here’s a little New Jersey Wedding Band sample…enjoy this video.We’ve performed wedding music to appreciative crowds of all ages throughout New Jersey and Long Island, as well as in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Westchester, Rockland County, Upstate New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
We are flexible, 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 wedding because we’re talented, polished musicians committed to creating great music and to making your New Jersey wedding unforgettable.
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 brides, grooms, family members and wedding planners to include wedding music songs the bride, groom and their special guests truly care about.
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.
From Jersey City, Newark and Elizabeth to Tom’s River and Asbury Park along the shore all the way to Trenton, Camden and Philadelphia suburbs, we’re prepared to travel to make your wedding special. Planning an enormous reception in Atlantic City? Average Bar Band can be there.
