About New York Ceremony Music
Imagine walking down the aisle in the most beautiful of settings to The Smiths, Depeche Mode, The Beatles and Band of Horses. We specialize in customizing your wedding to your personal taste in music. The longevity of playing together for 18 years has given us the versatility to make every wedding performance unique and above all special! Our philosophy is simple, write great arrangements and memorize them so we can pay attention to the details and be fully present every step of the way!
When you book New York Ceremony Music you know you will be booking Topu and Randy. We experimented with having another group perform our repertoire, and though it was successful, we realize that 18 years of performing side by side is irreplaceable. We are confident that we are the premiere ceremony and cocktail musicians in New York City. On our website we have over 100 recordings that we have personally arranged and recorded and you can hear for yourself the magic that we make.
We began performing together in 1999, when our friends and siblings started getting married. We flew all around the country attending and playing weddings. With each event came many personal requests for music and we discovered our knack for arranging any type of song. We have been booked for destination weddings in San Miguel, Mexico, Merida, Mexico, Big Sky, Montana, Denver, Colorado, San Fransisco, California, Newport, Maine, Kona, Hawaii, Lima, Peru, Tucson, Arizona and all throughout the Tri-State. Now we have a diverse, ever-growing repertoire perfect for any special occasion. Our repertoire ranges from The Beatles to Fleet Foxes, Elliot Smith to The National, Depeche Mode to Gypsy Jazz (Django Style), Brazilian (Bossa Nova and Choro), Classical and everything in between.
We know planning events can be stressful! New York Ceremony Music takes the burden off your shoulders. If there is one thing you will not have to worry about, it's the music. We offer a consultation and will happily personalize the music to your specific taste.
