Best investment you can make!!!!

My biggest piece of wedding advice to any couple is, hire a band!!! Better yet, hire a GREAT band! Atlas is the very best investment we made! They are talented beyond words and you will not have a wedding guest in their seat the minute they start to play. Not only are they talented but they are so kind, and accommodating. My wedding guests are still talking about how awesome they were! If you are low on a budget, find other areas to cut down on - flowers, decor, guest list! We had 68 guests and it was beyond perfect! BOOK ATLAS!

Atlas blew our minds. Can't recommend enough!

Working with John and Atlas the Band for our wedding was nothing less than a dream. Our reception music was THE decision we spent the most time mulling over, as we had high hopes for what the night would look like … and everyone knows it all comes down to the band.

John and Atlas the Band blew us away at every point in the night - which is a testament to their willingness to go above and beyond for their clients. Leading up to our wedding day, John was incredibly communicative, helpful, and easy to work with - whether it was lending his opinion for best songs to keep the party going, or being willing to talk through our run-of-show in detail, the passion for Atlas’s work shined through at every moment. The night of our wedding, Atlas met our requests with excitement and care - we mixed pre-recorded tracks with live music, combed through Atlas’s playlist on their website to pick our favorite songs, leaned on John & the band to emcee our speeches and first dances, and ended up having Atlas play for an extra 30 minutes because we were having too much fun. In short, Atlas exceeded our wildest expectations.

We could not be happier with our wedding music experience (and have had countless people tell us they’ve never seen a dance floor so packed, and so fun). We can't recommend Atlas Band enough!

Stop your search + book this band!

We could not have asked for a better band – or experience – than Atlas the Band. My husband and I got married in the Syracuse area – we live in the Capital Region, so were unfamiliar with bands or really any vendors in CNY. We learned about Atlas the Band on The Knot and after inquiring quickly received a reply. John, the band manager was incredibly communicative, open to our ideas and truly made the planning experience much easier. John provided us with a list of their public shows and while we were unable to attend any of them, we took a risk and booked them for our wedding based on their YouTube videos.

It’s been a little more a month now and our wedding guests are still raving about the band every time we talk. Their set list was a huge hit, covering songs for all ages which easily explained why the dance floor was packed the entire night. Atlas the Band took our custom ideas for our ceremony and reception music and provided a performance that was better than we could have ever imagined. If you are looking for your wedding band, stop here, you have found them. Thank you Atlas The Band!
