    The great band vs DJ debate

    Any couples out there having the whole “band vs dj debate?” Yeah, us too! I was in favor of a band and my now husband was petitioning for a dj. After a lot of persistence and promising to dedicate my whole tax return to the expenditure, he reluctantly caved and we went with CTO Midtown Express. The day after the wedding he told me: “You were right about one thing, and wrong about another. You way over ordered on desserts, but damn was that band good!” Still not convinced? If you’re worried about whether they can cover a variety of songs, we chose a raspy white dude for our first dance (Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats), a British piano player for our father daughter dance (Elton John), and wanted to end the night with a New Orleans style second line parade to the bus. Let me tell you- they nailed them all! Plus they don’t take breaks, just roll from one song immediately Into the next, and their band leader Virgil is so professional and friendly. At least four guests came up to me and asked who they were. So to recap- if you’re having the band vs dj debate- trust your spouse to be and go with CTO Midtown Express!!

    Outstanding

    An absolute pleasure on every level! Our guests raved about the band all night and in the days to follow. Especially during this year of uncertainty, this organization was a source of professionalism, organization and serenity, which can be rare things in the wedding planning industry even during a normal year!

    CTO Tribeca was amazing!

    We had CTO Tribeca for our wedding and they were by far one of the best choices we made in our planning! They had the entire wedding up and dancing for the whole reception. They are incredibly talented and brought amazing energy to the reception. Thank you Maylyn for being so easy to work with and thank you to the entire band who absolutely killed it!
