A great night with amazing energy!

I had the pleasure of experiencing New York Edge 8.5 years ago at my own wedding, and recently, they performed at my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding. To say they were incredible would be an understatement!

Rich and Shanti brought an unmatched level of energy, talent, and professionalism to both events. They had everyone on their feet, dancing and enjoying every moment. Their ability to read the crowd and choose the perfect songs ensured that the atmosphere was lively and entertaining throughout the night.

What sets New York Edge apart is not just their musical skill but also their ability to engage with the audience and create a connection that enhances the overall experience. Rich and Shanti will walk onto the dance and interact with your guests. Their passion for music and creating memorable moments shines through in every performance.

I would definitely recommend New York Edge to anyone looking for a top-notch musical experience for their special day. They made both weddings truly unforgettable, and I’m certain they will continue to do so for many more celebrations to come!

Rich is amazing!

Rich and his band just recently played at our wedding this April and they were beyond amazing! Rich is the nicest man and so easy to work with. He was able to incorporate some of our eclectic music requests seamlessly.

Throughout the reception, Rich and his team really were amazing. They basically never stopped playing and were great at reading the room to pick the music. So many of my guests absolutely raved about the band—they bring such energy to the reception! I can’t recommend them enough!

Look no further

All I can say is WOW. Rich and the band were incredible for our wedding. They, without question, made it a memorable time that we will look back on with so much joy. They read the room perfectly and kept the music and mood flowing the entire night. People told us it was the best wedding they have ever been too and this band is the reason why.

Thanks guys!
