About The Engagements

We are a wedding cover band based in Brooklyn, NY called The Engagements.

Catering to couples looking for a unique alternative to the typical, cookie-cutter wedding, we cover Motown, rock, soul, 70s, 80s, 90s, plus a smattering of 2000s to now. Our set lists are full of songs that haven't been played to death at weddings.

Comprised of a group of professional musician friends, our band members have toured in the bands of some recognizable acts - from Michael McDonald and Michael Buble, to Sharon Jones and French Kicks.

We're an actual BAND, we love playing together, and we're constantly tweaking our set list to keep it fresh.

Check out our videos - we cover songs by Human League, Eurythmics, Al Green, Michael Jackson, Hall N Oates, Tears For Fears and more...

Contact us about our availability and we'll send you an info packet with a song list, and answers to FAQ's.

    This is the wedding band to hire, no question

    We hired The Engagements for our wedding this past June, and they were UNBELIEVABLE!!!! We received nonstop compliments from our guests - all of whom were on the dance floor the entire night. Aaron, the drummer and band manager, was helpful from the start, providing detailed and thoughtful responses to all the many questions I had. Vocalists John, JD, Heather and Emil were all amazing - each member brought their own unique sound/vibe and they play together perfectly. They have a big repertoire of songs, but were also able to learn several "wishlist" songs for us and they executed them so well! I knew having a band would be the biggest splurge, and it was SO WORTH IT.

    The Engagements made our wedding!

    The Engagements were recommended to us by a musician friend who'd played with them before. His praise meant a lot to us, and then when we saw The Engagements play at the Bell House in Brooklyn, we knew they'd make our wedding. Their band leader Aaron was a joy to coordinate with, always accessible, generous with his time and insight, and eager to discuss our musical tastes. So our expectations were high by wedding night -- and the guys just blew them away, with a nearly three-hour dance party of Motown, 50s and 60s soul, and 70s dance music. Our guests won't forget it, and my wife and I surely never will. Choosing the Engagements was unquestionably the best decision we made for our wedding.

    Best damned wedding band ever and it's not even close

    I can't say enough good things about The Engagements. Countless people kept asking us where/how we found them. They actually blew a ton of people's minds. They learned half a dozen songs for our wedding, including deep cuts by George Harrison and The Band, and even an Abba song for my bride. They sounded great and they performed with profound sincerity and passion. I know they may cost a little more than the big company wedding bands, but I promise you, if what you're looking for is a band that cares about music and about rocking the fucking doors off of wherever your reception is, pick The Engagements. Aaron is a joy to work with. He took all the stress out of everything. I was able to borrow a guitar to play a song for my wife during our reception and they took the time to soundcheck me and make sure I felt comfortable in every way. Incredibly professional and badass. Can't say enough good things.
