Exceptional experience, beyond anything we could have hoped or dreamed for!

We are so incredibly happy and thankful to have had Joseph and Erika as our wedding band. Not only are their talent and expertise unmatched, but they were incredibly accommodating. They were our first pick for bands, so we were beyond excited when we were able to book them. Our wedding was in Nantucket on LDW (no small feat), and they went to great lengths to book affordable travel and make the trip on such a busy weekend (also, amidst their other LDW events/engagements). When it came to planning, we had some unique asks and they went above and beyond to make our vision come to life. For starters, they learned all of our first dance songs (bride/groom, mother/son, father/daughter), and even personalized them with little tweaks we wanted to make. Week of our wedding, when I had the ridiculous request for them to send me a rough recording of our first dance song so we could practice since their version would be different from the original, they didn’t even hesitate. We freaked out when we heard it because it was even better than the original! Already assuming it was too much to ask, we also threw out the possibility of them learning one additional, special song the week of the wedding for the ceremony processional, and to our surprise they, yet again, didn’t even hesitate to accommodate. Their song list is extensive and exhaustive, so the fact that they were willing to learn four additional songs (that they probably won’t ever be asked to play again because they were unique to us) says a lot about how talented and how much Joseph and Erika care. Speaking of their song list, whatever mood/vibe you’re going for, it’s on there. We marked some songs we loved and others we could do without and discussed the ambience we were trying to create, and Joseph and Erika absolutely nailed it. Honestly, they made the whole event. Our guests were in awe of them, and they kept the energy and vibes high. As if they hadn’t already exceeded expectations, after our wedding they offered to cut a professional studio recording of our first dance song. They ended up giving us two high-quality mixed/mastered mp3s of our first dance song; one was the full song and one was the version we had them personalize and abridge for the dance itself. We’ll cherish them forever. I can’t recommend Joseph and Erika highly enough. They are top of our referral list for anyone planning a wedding or event, and we hope to find another excuse to book them in the future!

Joseph + Erika are the best!

Joseph + Erika are fantastic. If you are lucky enough, and have a chance to book them, do it!

We booked them for our July 2023 wedding and couldn’t have been more impressed. They are professional, responsive, knowledgeable and extremely talented.

Leading up to the event, we had multiple calls and exchanged countless emails. They answered every question immediately with expertise and great suggestions.

For our wedding they performed the music for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Each was in a different location at the venue so Joseph + Erika set up three zones and lead the events so guests transitioned seamlessly between each zone.

The music was as fantastic. They learned three songs for us just weeks before the wedding and made a point to play them when we were both around to hear them. In planning, when we asked to switch up our Intros and first dance to have them outdoors, they pivoted and offered advice to make it happen! Our dance floor was packed ALL night. We even did live sing alongs to end the night. Joseph and Erika encouraged just the right amount of crowd involvement and we all had a blast!

The music and mc for your wedding can make or break the feel, transitions and total vibe. Joseph & Erika made our wedding classy, romantic and so much fun!
