Quality of Service

We hired CTO Midtown Express for our wedding and it was, hands down, one of the best wedding decisions we made! We attended their showcase and were so impressed by their talent, range, personality and chemistry. Unlike a lot of wedding bands, CTO Midtown Express can FLAWLESSLY play both new and old songs. You can watch their wedding video for a taste, but I HIGHLY recommend attending a showcase so you can really experience their energy. Going to the showcase with my then-fiance was one of our favorite "wedding planning" moments. We started working with Virgil, the band leader, closely about a couple months before the wedding. I had questions before hand and they were also so responsive. He is incredibly thorough and I recommend just letting them guide the process and help you with the flow of the evening. We adjusted our timelines based on some of his recommendations to keep the energy going. They were very accommodating to song choice requests and timelines requests, but were on point with making the judgement calls themselves about when to shake things up. We wanted a very high energy reception and were so impressed with how they could read the room and adjust the music to keep the energy going. You hear that comment alot about "wedding bands", but CTO Midtown is different. Here's why: My grandma rarely ever leaves the house, hates posing for pictures and is very "reserved" and I was honestly not sure if she would even make it to my wedding. She came, she saw, and she DANCED. My whole family was so shocked! If CTO Midtown Express can get my grandma moving, then I am convinced they can perform miracles. I am recommending them to ALL my future-engaged friends just so I can attend their weddings and see them perform again. I'm not even kidding! HIRE. THEM. NOW. You're guests will thank you!
