The most talented, accommodating, caring professionals in the business

My husband and I were on opposite sides of going with a band as he had never been to a wedding before with a band. From our first meeting with Genesis and Rudy we knew that they would be amazing to work with and they truly truly were. They constantly checked in on us throughout the two year planning process and listened to our wishes for timeline and music preferences. As the day came this band was so so so beyond talented. We had a pianist and strings during cocktail hour and then a 10 piece band for the reception. So many people came up to me the night of the wedding saying how great they are and I am still getting compliments on how great this band is! Our goal was a a packed dance floor the entire night and they delivered 10x over! Everyone needs to hire them ASAP!

Absolutely amazing!

My husband and I are SO glad we chose Crossing Midnight Entertainment for our wedding band, lighting and photo booth! The whole process was amazing from booking until after the big day! Emma was so sweet and responsive with any questions, and they reached out to just check in throughout the months leading up to the big day!! Rudy was so kind and charismatic throughout as well! And that doesn’t even touch on how incredible their performance was!!! Crossing midnight made our party non-stop, our dance floor was PACKED, and guests could not stop raving out how amazing our band was! The performers are all incredible! They are so talented at what they do, they knew how to read the room and match the vibes, while still taking our requests into consideration!! It was an absolute pleasure working with CME and made the planning process as stress-free as possible. Cannot recommend enough!!!
