    Best decision ever.

    BEST DECISION EVER. Our wedding was legit the most epic concert and the music was incredible!!! The Benjamins offer so many different packages and given COVID, we went with an Acoustic Duo + DJ for our cocktail hour, then transitioned to a Trio (2 Guitarists and Drummer) + DJ for the reception. The band literally has 1000+ songs to chose from --- however, we were unique in that we did not want any cliche wedding songs and requested all 90's alternative, jam band, grunge, rock songs and they EXCEEDED our expectations. During the reception we request on-the-spot System of a Down's "Chop Suey" and The Benjamins were so flexible and immediately tuned their guitars to the right key and NAILED IT. Not only are their voices incredible (Joe's range is insane)... but they are extremely talented guitarists. Their song arrangements were freaking awesome (we had an acoustic version of a Cascada song). Also, one big aspect to wedding planning is having everyone ask you what your doing for music... and the second I told friends/family we hired The Benjamins -- I never expected all the positive/excited reactions from everyone already knowing or seeing them live at shows. I can go on and on... so worth it. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Best band to hire in NJ

    For our wedding we wanted live music as opposed to DJ. We did a lot of research on different musicians within the state. After checking some of these bands out and communicating with several we decided to go with the Benjamins, due to how impressive their live performances are. After booking, our originally planned venue wedding was canceled due to COVID, we had to settle for a smaller backyard wedding. Joe (frontman of the Benjamins) was extremely professional on working with us on accommodating our requests and working with us despite the changes (date, venue, performance type). He was also prompt on his communication with us throughout this process. We ultimately decided to change the performance type from a full band to a solo acoustic performance, which we were originally disappointed about, due to a much smaller guest list. Then came wedding day and the reception, where Joe was absolutely amazing. He mixed in songs we had previously requested with songs that he felt were appropriate to get the party going. Not only were his songs great, but his stage presence kept our guests engaged throughout the evening. Everyone at the wedding raved about how great Joe was. I could not recommend anyone more than Joe and the Benjamins. We were so impressed that since the wedding we have already hired the Benjamins for a future event. If you are looking for the best in this field, look no further.
