200 Guest Wedding: Everyone's favorite part? -The Bud Maltin Band. Period.
My wife and I were married and had a reception with 200 guests. We had listened to about 6-8 bands before making a final decision and my wife and I came to a unanimous decision in choosing the Bud Maltin band. There is a tremendous amount of talented musicians especially in the NYC area but we felt that we were in the best and most capable hands working with the Bud Maltin Band.Sent on 10/27/2019
We had 11-12 musicians the day of our wedding which provided continuous music throughout the day. For the ceremony we had a Bud play flute and an electric guitar. It set the tone for the entire ceremony and delivered renditions of the songs that we requested which were recognizable as soft instrumentals but perfectly arranged as to blend into the backdrop.
The band does a walk through of the venue before the day of the wedding to ensure that all of the logistics are accounted for. Bud and his manager Bill worked with the venue to organize a time without us (as we were very busy and weren't required to walk through with them). In doing so, they came up with recommendations on how to setup the band to optimize the acoustics in our rather large open space. In addition to this, having seen a grand piano on site while doing their walk through, they were able to utilize it doing our cocktail hour. The day of our wedding we had a bass guitar and piano entertaining our guests which was an incredible demonstration on Bud and Bill's experience to have had the foresight to visit the venue and make these kinds of suggestions. The final decisions were always left in our hands (Bride & Groom) and we never felt pushed. Given the bands collective experience, we took them up on every suggestion they made, each time adding more and more value.
During the reception Bud and the band put on a spectacular performance. Although the band was completely capable of learning anything we requested, we chose to trust their expertise in curating the music that was played during our day. This may sound scary to some but let me tell you, no one knows how to entertain a room of 200 people like the Bud Maltin Band. They played top hits across 70s-2010s, They had three generations of people up dancing and not once was there an empty dance floor. All transitions into traditional wedding reception rituals like the 'first dance' and the 'father daughter dance' were all done in a way that made sense and didn't disrupt the flow. This is all another testament to this band's experience.
The wedding is now behind us both and looking back at all of the decisions big and small we had made. One of best decision my wife and I made around planning our wedding was hiring The Bud Maltin band. Since our wedding everyone reflects on the wedding the same way: "THE BAND WAS INCREDIBLE!".
Book a time to see them perform. They are kind, generous, and a pleasure to work with. My wife and both feel booking them for our wedding was an absolute home run for all of our guests!

Best Musicians You Will Ever Meet!
It is hard to find the words to describe how incredible this group is. My husband and I were married a month ago and we are STILL getting raving reviews from our family about the amazing band we had. Bud and his group pulled out all the stops, literally, and made our wedding the most gorgeous, seamless, spectacular experience we could have imagined. The musicians were excellent, professional, and could play literally every single song we asked for. They personalized the night and captured the intimate family nature of the backyard covid wedding. Honestly, I was skeptical about investing in a full band at first, but after seeing how truly wonderful Bud and his musicians were I could not be more thankful that we hired them for our special night. Our family is already demanding that we get them again for our one year anniversary (and every year after that!) I am just so thankful and truly moved by how sweet and dedicated this group was, and how much they did to make sure we had the best possible wedding night. You absolutely must go check this band out, I promise you will not regret it!!! Thank you Bud and Metropolitan music!!Sent on 10/21/2020

Bud Maltin Metropoiltan Music is FABULOUS!
Hiring Bud Maltin Metropoiltan Music was one of the best decisions my husband and I made. We loved the option of having a live band with live musicians AND a terrific DJ. Talk about a winning combination! We were able to have the DJ play specific songs we loved (with original/specific artists) and also had the benefit of also offering amazing live music to fill the ballroom at our reception. Bill Galbo (business manager) and Bud Maltin are both incredibly personable and always made my husband and me feel like our preferences were being heard. They are a class act. I cannot recommend them more highly.Sent on 10/29/2019
