Empire Beats Is The Best
We hired Empire Beats for our wedding in October 2016 and couldn't have been happier with the choice. They did an amazing job from start to finish. We chose from an extensive list of song options and they also learned two special requests. Mark came to visit the venue ahead of time and coordinated with the event staff. The musicianship, energy, soul, and fun that they contributed to the reception was amazing. Fully recommended!Sent on 02/09/2019
Empire Beats's reply:Thank you, Eben! We had so much fun at your wedding at the Pratt Mansion. You and your guests danced relentlessly -- it was impressive. Thanks for adding Super Stupid and the Buzzsaw Twist to our repertoire -- great songs, you've got an appreciation for deep cuts. Give my best to Alyssa!

One of the very best choices we made for our wedding
Empire Beats was by far one of the best choices we made for our wedding. We had an overwhelming amount of compliments about the band. Mark worked with us and provided excellent service from start to finish. No detail was left to chance, which put our minds at ease for the big day.Sent on 02/06/2019
We had an incredible vocalist and accompaniment from another musician for our processional and recessionals. “In My Life” brought the tears out for my wife’s processional.
Cocktail hour was fantastic and featured a vibraphone. The energy was fantastic and the mood that was struck was perfect.
And then, of course, there was the main event--the reception. Everyone was phenomenal--especially the singers. They had everyone up on their feet and celebrating, dancing. They brought down the house with "Proud Mary."
We were privileged to work with Empire Beats and would recommend them wholeheartedly.
Empire Beats's reply:Thank you for your kind words, Mike, we had so much fun at your wedding! Just last week at rehearsal the singers were talking about it again... The garden ceremony and cocktail hour was picturesque and classy. And the dinner and dance reception in the ballroom was just perfect. You and your guests really threw down,we loved looking out from the stage and seeing everybody dancing all night! What a treat, please give my best to Courtney.
