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.

HIRE THIS BAND RIGHT NOW! We have only INCREDIBLE things to say about the Met Players. SO FUN, affordable, caring, attentive, and professional. Every single guest of ours has said that it was the best band they've seen and one of the most fun weddings they have been to and we have the Met Players to thank for that.Sent on 07/21/2018
Erin responded promptly to emails with kindness, enthusiasm, and PERSONAL responses. She truly made us feel like we weren't just a potential client but a friend who she really cared about. We were the first of our friends to get married so we came with LOTS of questions, and you name it, Erin helped.
We attended many showcases that the Met Players hosted that were fantastic. We were able to confirm which band members we wanted, add songs to our playlist, and get SO excited for our big day. Erin was always eager to check in with us and we even had a phone conference with her and Drew to make sure that our special entrance plan of various MP3s was all set to run smoothly. In the days leading up to the wedding Erin was traveling abroad but still made sure I was at ease by giving me her cell phone number and telling me to reach out if need be, WHAT other vendor would do this?!
The Met Players played the perfect mix of our requests and SO many songs right up our alley. The transition between songs and courses being served was so smooth. They even sung happy birthday to our niece! The dance floor was PACKED the entire night and some of the singers came on the dance floor at times! Towards the end right about when people may have felt tired, they played the BEST 90s mix of songs that amped up the energy like crazy and it was awesome. Highly recommend this!!!! Bottom line...BEST VENDOR EVER. In addition to being more than half the price than a lot of other bands out there, the Met Players are more than just a band, but a group of genuine, caring people who truly do everything they can to make your wedding day everything and more. Thank you Met Players!!

This band is a must-get!
They are so talented - several of our guests noted how much energy they brought. They also have a huge selection of songs. Not to mention they'll learn a few additional songs by request. The Metropolitan Players host showcases so you can see them ahead of time and even pick out the singers you want.Sent on 04/07/2019
Their manager, Erin is so great to work with. Very responsive and thoughtful. Always willing to help in any way she can. So organized that you know you don't have to even think about the day going off without a hitch.
Book them now!

Don't think twice - hire them right now!
Our wedding goal was for our guests to wake up the following morning and say "Holy moly, what a great wedding!" We wanted them to be exhausted from dancing all night long and man was that mission accomplished with the help of The Met Players.Sent on 03/13/2019
Erin and Drew treat your wedding like it's their own -- every detail is perfectly handled. They're true professionals, who somehow also manage to treat you like you're a part of their extended family. They love what they do and it comes through in your wedding.
I was blown away by their thoughtfulness and willingness to learn special songs that my husband and I wanted to hear throughout our wedding. And based on our suggestions, they built a playlist of songs that felt true to us as a couple and ensured our wedding was a huge dance party!
Hire them ASAP!
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?
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!
