We hired Cafe Wha? as our wedding band after having seen them perform in their club in New York City. Their preparation was meticulous and were willing to go above and beyond to meet all of our specific needs. It was imperative to us to have a great band, and we couldn't be happier to have selected Cafe Wha? The band was able to adjust music according to the vibe of the room and had most of the 260 person wedding dancing the entire night. We cannot wait to go back and see them perform at their club.

Cafe Wha was incredible!! The musicians are so talented and easy to work with. We were so pleased with the music... in fact, our guests are still raving about it, and my guess is they will continue to do so for a while. So many people said, "Cafe Wha was the best wedding band they'd ever heard" - and it's true! We were blown away. I would HIGHLY recommend them for a wedding band. They know how to get everyone on the dance floor and keep them there all night! My husband and I couldn't have been happier with this choice for our wedding.
