About

On WeddingWire since 2014

Dexter Lake Club Band is a New York City-based “anti-wedding band”, known for their non-cheesy approach and highly curated, and constantly-evolving song list. From early soul to classic rock and current hits, they do it all without resorting to the cookie cutter approach that makes most people shudder when they hear the term "wedding band". The group of friends started the band at Oberlin College, and it grew organically from there after they landed a few high-profile gigs in New York City. Dexter Lake Club Band has played for numerous well-known clients, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Washington D.C. Ballet, and actress Olivia Wilde. They're perfect for anyone wanting memorable music at their special occasion.

DLCB will be the difference maker at your wedding, separating your event from a typical cookie cutter wedding band.

My wife and I have seen DLCB at a few different friends weddings at this point and so we know just how great they are. The impressive thing to me was how different each wedding felt as they will cater to your tastes and feedback, playing a different set with an energy and flow that is unique to your specific party. They are truly the conductors of your event controlling the energy so that by the end of the night, the dance floor will be completely full and dancing as if it were a rock concert. At the end of the night, all we kept hearing was how incredible the band was and coming from a family of critical music lovers, is such a joy to hear. Music can dictate the feeling of your wedding night and if you are worried about your wedding feeling cliché and too similar to the many other wedding bands out there, then hire these guys and you will not regret it.

DLCB is the best!!

Dexter Lake Club Band is absolutely incredible. From the beginning, they were super easy to work with, very responsive and happy to jump on a call to chat. On our wedding day, they smashed it! It felt like we were at a rock and roll concert and we all danced the night away. They will work with you to ensure all the songs you want to hear are played and will happily learn up to 5 songs, which they knocked out of the park. Thank you DLCB for making our day so special!

It is always a thrill to provide sound for these great musicians when they are in my area. I work with lots of great bands but if I ever needed entertainment for a special event, this would be the band I would hire. Talented, friendly and always going the extra mile for their client. The Dexter Lake Club Band will provide all the professionalism and energy to make your event awesome.
