Exceptional Music Entertainment
Incredible from Start to Finish
I cannot thank Empyreal enough for their exceptional work, dedication, and professionalism and I look forward to working with them again!
Exceptional performers, organized and professional
They are led by an experienced band manager/performer who is organized, responsive, and offered a customized solution for my wedding from the string trio at the ceremony, to a saxophone with electronic accompaniment for cocktail hour, to the introductions, first dance, parent’s dance, and open dance at the reception. The transitions were seamless, the band played throughout unless asked to rest for any special reason (e.g. speeches).
And while I encourage anyone to do their research, I thoroughly vetted 13 bands - including videos, setlists, and in-person viewing when available - and found the clear winner after conducting a comprehensive comparison.
I am blessed with having grown up playing the cello competitively in New England, with my ear and rhythm helping to source this unique, versatile and talented group of performers that the band manager assembled.
Our discerning guests have been raving about this band for weeks since the wedding. They also came up to me during the wedding to say what a great band we had. Among the discerning guests were professional musicians, creative directors, and people who spend their time dancing to music at parties and enjoying good bands (when they can get them!).
The band was very good to work with. They played our must play songs and also the songs that I selected from their setlists to help them with a theme which they kept in balance while reading the crowd and adjusting beautifully.
This band helped to make my wedding a spectacular, fun, and memorable experience. We spent about two years planning this wedding so you can imagine the other details that folks appreciated, but their emphasis was always on the band and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
