Why choose between live music and a DJ for your wedding when you can have both?

Bands are great, but they’re expensive – and they only know so many songs. DJs will bring the dance party, but pre-recorded music, especially in those intimate moments, can lack that genuine, human connection that your love story deserves.

We’re here to make things simple:

We play live music. We DJ. And we help create unforgettable moments that are uniquely you.

​Picture this: soft, elegant live music leads you down the aisle. Later, your cocktail hour is buzzing with the sound of loved ones while live acoustic versions of your favorite songs are played for everyone to enjoy. And when you’re ready to turn the volume up, you watch your guests flood the dance floor for a dynamic, high-energy DJ set that has you partying all night long.

If you’re ready for a soundtrack for your wedding day that perfectly complements your vibe, delivered to you in a totally unique, no-compromise entertainment package, we’ve got you covered.

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!

The BEST time!

Joseph and Erika were way beyond amazing! They were incredibly easy and fun to work with on music. I was worried about how we were choose songs and how hard it would be, but they have an app that is very helpful and fun to use, and you get to pick out all your music right on there for the whole night! We didn’t end up choosing most of our dance floor music and just told them what types we liked, and they ABSOLUTELY nailed the dance floor music! It was hard to find a time to go to the bathroom because every song was too perfect! All our guest said how great they were and how much fun the music was! They are also incredibly talented and our live songs were so beautifully done. I cannot recommend these two more! They truly made our night so special with their beautiful music!

The BEST Wedding Band!

Absolutely phenomenal! Joseph and Erika are not just a wedding band; they are true musical magicians who made our special day utterly unforgettable. From the moment they started playing acoustic melodies during our cocktail hour and dinner, their talent and warmth set the perfect tone. Their music added such a special touch, creating an ambiance that was both intimate and enchanting.

As the evening progressed, they seamlessly transitioned into high gear with their full band, igniting the dance floor and turning our celebration into an epic party! Their ability to read the vibe of our guests was uncanny—they played the perfect mix of songs that kept everyone on their feet and filled the air with infectious energy.

Joseph and Erika's professionalism and genuine passion for what they do shone through every note they played. Their musical prowess is matched only by their wonderful personalities; they felt like part of our wedding family from the very beginning.

Our guests haven't stopped raving about them since. Every comment we've received has been overflowing with praise for the band's talent and the incredible atmosphere they created. Without a doubt, Joseph and Erika were the heartbeat of our wedding day, and we are endlessly grateful to them for making it as magical as it was. If you're looking for a wedding band that will elevate your day to unforgettable heights, look no further—they are simply the best!
