45 RIOTS ARE THE BEST EVER. Our wedding was the most unbelievably amazing night, in large part because of the 45 Riots. Your wedding will not be as good as it could have been if you choose another band.
Picking a band was probably the most important and serious part of our wedding planning. We previewed a ton of bands in NYC, knowing that making the right choice was extremely important. We were totally blown away by the Riots and there was no question in our minds that we had to book them when we saw their show. We didn't think it would be possible but they were even better at the actual wedding.
The band makes the party, and 45 Riots will not be a typical "wedding band." It will be like an amazing concert with all of your closest friends and family and the best dance party ever, while watching unbelievably talented musicians who read the crowd in an incredible way. Every guest - young and old - was on the dance floor, and every guest also said they could not believe how amazing the band was. Honestly, we knew they would rock it but it was more than we ever could have asked for. BOOK THE 45 RIOTS BEFORE SOMEONE ELSE DOES.
Working with Adam is an absolute pleasure. He is truly a talented musician and fantastic person who listens to what you envision and works with you to make the experience more special than you can imagine. It should be noted that the musicians are some of the most talented but down to earth, friendly people ever. We went to their shows at Red Lion and BB Kings periodically in the months leading up to the wedding. We chatted with several of the band members often, and we continued to be more and more excited about our own wedding. Getting to know everyone and experience the Riots before the wedding made the planning process so much more fun and exciting. The Riots should be #1 on your list when you start wedding planning – you will not be sorry! THANK YOU RIOTS! Mike & Alexandra 12/5/15

The Perfect Band
It's no exaggeration to say that 45 Riots made our wedding. We went to one of their shows at the Bitter End, and booked them on the spot. Their combination of talent, energy and personality was incredible. And then at our wedding, somehow they managed to outdo themselves. They got everyone dancing (even our most uptight relatives), read the room and picked the perfect songs, and made us feel like part of their family. Their business team was also amazing to work with, by far our most responsive and organized vendor. We plan to keep going to their shows to relive our wedding night and support the band, and can't recommend them any more highly.

We used 45 Riots after we did lots of research and let me tell you from start to finish, the process was extremely organized, the staff were patient, and the end product was world class. 45 Riots is a world class band that travels internationally and delivers an unforgettable experience for you and your guests. Check them out in the city or visit their band page for upcoming events but I promise you will not be disappointed. 45 Riots was the best wedding band and surpassed our expectations. They made the wedding an unforgettable experience for us and our guests and we are extremely grateful! The band is extremely talented, must hire!!!
45 Riots ROCKS! That about covers it, and you really don't need to know any more, but her are some details as to why... Every single musician that 45 Riots employs, is individually an exceptionally talented musician, many of whom write their own original music and perform with major recording artists. The band organizers are artful with putting together the perfect blend of musicians for your event. Whether you need a small intimate feeling or a big band dance party, they can accommodate all feels and music styles. As an event designer, one of the key things that I look for in vendors that I recommend, is "can I trust them to show up and make me look good?", because every time I make a recommendation I put my reputation on the line. I ALWAYS feel comfortable hiring 45 Riots for my customers. Aside from the musicians, the support for the music is beyond what could ever be expected. The sound engineering team will arrive in advance of the musicians and have everything set up, looking good and ready to sound check. They make sure that throughout the party, the sound is perfect and optimized for the venue. I've seen them perform in some very tricky venues and they always sound fabulous. Every guest at your party will dance and have fun, and probably want to know where you found this AMAZING band.
You are looking for a band that keeps you moving to the most beautiful played music?! 45 Riots is the way to go. They are simply amazing and the most friendly, fun group. You cannot make a mistake giving them a call.
Absolutely incredible team! Wonderful people, incredible musicians! Book them!
