NYC Swing is absolutely incredible and was the talk of all of our guests! We hired them after seeing them my best friend's wedding and realized it was the most fun and best dancing we had ever had at a wedding.
48 hours before our wedding, my husband and I were forced to relocate our wedding from NJ to DC because of Hurricane Sandy - something I said I would only do if NYC Swing would make the trip. My friends and family thought I was crazy -- in the midst of relocating my wedding it was the band I was obsessed over. But then they all heard the band at our wedding, had the time of their lives, and understood why NYC Swing is so incredible. There really is no equivalent band out there - they are simply amazing.
I used NYC Swing for my wedding, and I would 100% recommend them. We had a relatively large wedding of about 230 guests. About 130 of the guests were between 23-27 years old so we really wanted a band that would play lively music that would keep everyone on the dance floor.
Dori and his band 100% lived up to, and even exceeded, those expectations. We had made a list of about 50 songs (mostly R&B and dance music) for him and the band and they played all of them. Dori was also very flexible with his schedule, allowing us to meet with him several times before our wedding.
Wedding bands are expensive, but in my opinion, they are the most important driver of a great wedding. At our wedding, the dance floor was packed out the entire night and all I've gotten since it have been compliments to how great the band was.
Hope this helps
New York City Swing's Uptown Swing Band was the absolute highlight of our wedding. They kept the dance floor going all night long and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. Even a month after our wedding, our friends and family are still talking about how great they were!! I cannot say enough AMAZING things about this band. They are by far the best wedding band I have ever seen. They are not only incredible musicians, but put on quite a show when on the stage! Each member has such a unique personality they bring to the overall performance, and several times throughout the night the band got down on the dance floor to entertain and dance!
I HIGHLY recommend them, they sound EXACTLY like the artists who actually sing the songs and the musicians are incredibly talented. Hire them, it's the best decision you can make to ensure that your wedding is a blast!
AMAZING!!!! Best band ever, they blew everyone away! They allow guests that know how to play instruments join them on stage, and they come out onto the dance floor to get everyone involved and excited! Voices were crazy, these people could all be famous solo artists, they were that good! If you are going with a band, New York City Swing is one classy decision that you will be proud of!

SOO much fun!!! Had everyone up on the dance floor the entire night! Not to mention, they played a wide range of music and had absolutely incredible voices. T Our wedding wouldn't have been half as fun without them....They were awesome and we are constantly having friends asking us who our band was and where we found them...
I believe the NYC Swing is the BEST band in the North East area. They have this dynamic about them, that just gets the party started and keeps it there. Shane, the owner and also the drummer, is very attentive to details and is willing to work with you on prices. They are rather expensive, but you get what you pay for. I got the 15 piece package and EVERY member of the band had something different and amazing about them. They truly made my night PERFECT.
If you want a really fun and upbeat wedding, this is the band for you! They were just so much fun. My parents really wanted 50's and 60's music, and we wanted current music, and they managed to make everyone happy. They were awesome.
