About Metropolitan Players

We are a youthful, energetic wedding band based in NYC that provides the sound and song selection of a DJ, with the electric energy of a live band!

Our mission is to revolutionize the wedding entertainment industry by standardizing love as an expectation for booking and working with a band in the Tri-State area. Our founders, Drew and Erin Coles, formed the band for their own wedding (in the midst of hustling their butts off getting degrees in music and business respectively), and care deeply about creating a beautiful event for each and every couple.​

We only do weddings because this band was built on and for love.
We've perfected doing weddings because we seriously enjoy doing it.
We'll treat you like family because that's what you deserve.
Simple.

    Metropolitan Players were shining stars!

    The Met Players were the shining stars of our wedding!! From the moment we contacted them, Erin was prompt, friendly, and always willing to answer all of our questions. When we asked for a bluegrass-inspired cocktail hour and a slow-to-fast version of September with personalized lyrics, the Met Players said yes without hesitation (and with tons of enthusiasm). To this day, our friends and family reminisce about our epic last song (Fat Bottomed Girls by Queen that the Met Players learned for our wedding) and our mother-daughter dance, where we sang Shania Twain. These moments would not have been possible without the Met Players' thoughtful attention-to-detail and dedication to making our wedding night an unforgettable, magical night.

    Fabulous wedding band!

    The Metropolitan Players are outstanding!!! My husband and I are extremely happy that we hired them for our wedding ceremony and reception. They exceeded our expectations in every way. We had several planning calls to discuss music preferences, number and type of instruments and number of vocalists. They have a wide range of music from which we created our playlist for the reception. We collaborated on timeline for the ceremony and the reception. They were 100% reliable, professional and pleasant to work with. They were flexible and fair in working with our budget. Their onsite coordinator was on top of every detail and the musicians were fabulous!!! Our guests from young to old were on the dance floor to the end of the reception and we received many unsolicited compliments from our guests about the band. My husband and I had a wonderful time dancing, and they made our first dance especially memorable. Everyone we worked with from the planning coordinator, onsite coordinator and musicians were professional, courteous and very enthusiastic about helping to make our wedding special.

    Aww - June Anne!! This is so sweet!! We're so glad to hear that The Met Players exceeded yours and Mark’s expectations! It was so great working with you ahead of your wedding to decide on the music that spoke to you and Mark as a couple. And we love hearing that you received so many compliments from your guests about the band!! But our absolute favorite part of this review is that your first dance together was so memorable - hearing that just makes our hearts smile!! We're so, so thankful that we got to celebrate your love and be a part of such a meaningful day! Thank you for letting us share in your celebration!

    I've performed with Metropolitan Players a few times and I really enjoyed working with them. They're organized, on top of their game, and talented. What more can you ask for?

  • Outline Studios Wedding Planners

    Outstanding!!! Having worked with countless bands as an event planner, Metropolitan Players stands far above the rest. Erin was beyond helpful in every step of the way. She was responsive to every question and odd request my clients asked. She was creative in helping my clients chose off the beaten path selections and the band went above and beyond to learn very specific songs. Erin detailed the whole night with a timeline and were flexible when changes were even made during the night. The band arrived on time, set up and were ready ahead of schedule. The whole band was the definition of professionalism and you can tell how much everyone loves what they do. Numerous wedding guests specifically hunted me down to tell me how amazing the band was! Their ability to read the crowd and get everyone out of there seats is unmatched. Definitely my go to band from now on!
