Wedding Reception Music New YorkGenerating the perfect party mood for an enormous NYC wedding reception or a relaxing, intimate atmosphere for a smaller post-wedding group is an art that takes practice and skill.
Average Bar Band features five regular members who have played hundreds of gigs together and rehearsed for many, many hours. And, yes, we’ve played a lot of weddings, adapting our playlist and sound to meet the needs of our clients at each one. We’re a wedding band NYC because we play weddings, but – more important – we are musicians who are deeply committed to making great music and leaving our clients happy.
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.
We take the music seriously and we take your wedding seriously, because we want it to be a positive, joyful experience for you and your guests, and we want the planning your New York wedding reception music as easy as possible. We’re professional and creative and we adapt to your needs to create the perfect song list for your wedding reception. It’s our job to give the client what they want, and play the music like we wrote it ourselves.
We say “Wedding Band NYC” and Average Bar Band certainly plays a large number of gigs in the city, but we frequently travel throughout the region. We’ve performed to appreciative 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.
With Average Bar Band, you’ll be trusting your wedding reception music New York – one of the most important days of your life – to 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“). One of our sub guitarists showcased for Clive Davis. Another sub guitarist plays in Rocky on Broadway. Another played in the house band on the Spanish language version of the TV show The Voice, and one played in the Green Day musical on Broadway, American Idiot. Our subs are just as good, probably better, than our main members, and have the websites, videos, mp3s and reviews to prove it.
Finding the feeling in the words and lyrics of your wedding play list matters to us. If it’s your song…we’ve rehearsed it. You won’t be sharing your first dance to a mediocre cover, wishing you’d just hired a DJ. When our band plays, everyone will dance. Please read our reviews for more details on this subject.
It’s our job to give the client what they want, and play the music like we wrote it ourselves. Call 212.989.6331 to find if we’re the right wedding band NYC to fulfill your dreams and help make your event unforgettable.
