New York Players is the best, and we absolutely loved them. We researched a LOT of bands based on what we'd heard at other weddings (spanning from Tennesee to NYC to upstate NY). We really wanted a band whose players were guaranteed (i.e. not a group of 30 musicians that rotate). With New York Players, who you see and hear at events is who you will have at your event. We were never worried because we knew that that the group we loved to listen to would be the group performing at our wedding. Additionally, we loved their structure! They took two short breaks throughout the night, otherwise, they were playing. This was very important to us because we didn’t want there to be a lull of people not on the dance floor. We didn’t do a traditional sit-down dinner (instead we did stations), and throughout the whole night, the dance floor was PACKED. Guests had a blast. Working with Mike Emery throughout the process was enjoyable, easy, and fun. My mom and I tend to get nervous, and Mike always put us at ease. Leading up to the wedding, we had three short phone calls with Mike to talk through everything (evening timeline, toasts, bridal party entrance, etc.). We revised our song selections a few times, and it was never an issue. Mike was so personable, and we were touched that he researched my nephew’s fatal disease after hearing about it and brought him a special present. Additionally, New York Players learned some songs for us! They learned the Backstreet Boys song my husband wanted for the mother/son dance, and they also learned a Coldplay song for our wedding party entrance. We thought this was really, really amazing. One highlight was our first dance: my husband and I worked with a dance instructor to choreograph the first dance, and we briefly chatted with Mike to time when the band would start playing our song after they announced us. We had a blast, and our guests went wild over the dance! All night everyone commented on how lively, fun, and amazing the band was. Everyone wanted to know they were and where they were from! I cannot recommend them enough. The entire process was enjoyable, and the day of the wedding was absolutely AWESOME.Sent on 07/17/2019

Dance All Night With These Rock Stars !!
We got married on December 8th at the Canfield Casino in Saratoga, NY. This venue has an amazing stage that is perfect for a band so when it came time to select our band we knew we had the select the perfect one. After talking with Mike and the New York Players, we knew all the reviews that they were the best band in New York had to be 100% true! From our first consultation on the phone to the end of our wedding, the New York Players rocked! Mike made sure to go over every aspect of the night and clearly has tons of experience on how to plan and execute a perfect wedding night. He’s super organized and had monthly calls starting 3 months out to go over the itinerary for the evening, the set list and other details. About a month out, he was willing to meet as much as we needed to finalize the details. So much of what a Band does isn’t the music, but the MC’ing and coordination of the night along with your caterers and other vendors. Mike and his team seamlessly integrated our music selections into the evening and gave us great recommendations for music choices at key points in the night like our entrance music and cake cutting music. They are even willing to learn three songs for you if they don’t know how to play them!Sent on 01/27/2019

Kept everyone dancing all night
Players Nouveau (from New York Players Entertainment Group) were a huge hit at our wedding! I've received so many compliments about how amazing the band was from several of our guests. They're very professional, punctual, and adaptive to their clients requests. I would strongly recommend using this group for weddings and other such events!Sent on 10/30/2018
