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.

    The Perfect Wedding Band!!

    Brett and I were married in May 2019 at the Hyatt Regency in Jersey City. The Metropolitan Players are a must have at your wedding or ANY event! We got to enjoy the band at Brett’s sister’s wedding in September 2018. We knew right there that we wanted the same band at our wedding. I couldn’t wait to celebrate on the dance floor with them. Many of our guests expressed how much they loved the band and how amazingly talented they were. We had so much fun dancing at our wedding! Everyone was dancing, even family who normally wouldn’t dance!

    Erin and her team were great to work with. They accommodated requests we made and had wonderful song suggestions to moments we were stuck on. We had a unique ceremony musical request and it turned out even better than I imagined! Erin was also the one who recommended the venue and photographer we ended up working with! She was a huge help! We are so thankful for all her expertise that led to the perfect wedding!

    Book them now!!

    Best Wedding Band - NY/NJ


    Metropolitan Players was absolutely amazing for our wedding this past April in NJ. Right from the start of the planning stages, Erin and Drew worked with us to design our perfect “band”, incorporating brass and woodwinds as requested by my parents , as well as letting us rank the female and male vocalists. We were able to attend a showcase night to sample the tunes, before we signed the contract where we could meet with Erin and Drew and several of the band members .

    And I can confirm that the big day could not have been any better. From the ceremony music which was a combination of pop hit instrumental and traditional classical to the cocktail hour background music to the amazing 10 piece band we had- Met Players made our day! They had all generations up and dancing and the dance floor full of positive vibes and energy up until the last song at Midnight. And I can tell you that they learned our 1st dance song - Love Someone by Lukas Graham - and It was just as good as the original.

    Everyone kept telling us how much they loved our band — We wish we could have a redo - It went by way too fast!

    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!
