About The Loyales

“The Loyales were the best wedding band ever because they weren’t a wedding band." Joel Stein, TIME

“The Loyales were the best wedding band ever because they weren’t a wedding band. They were just a really great band.”
-Joel Stein, Time Magazine


Brooklyn cover band The Loyales, is the kind of good time dance band they don’t make anymore.

Championing juke joint, rootsy dance music, this band joyfully rolls out song after song by classic soul and roots artists.  It’s like having a live band playing through an old juke box’s 45′s.

The Loyales have played multiple events for Daily Candy, the NYC Food & Wine Fest, and backed Chef Tom Colicchio of Top Chef on Martha Stewart’s radio show, as well as for the opening of one of Tom’s venues in NYC.

Musician Credentials:

Milton himself has played with Norah Jones, Al Kooper, Joan Osborne, James Hunter, Shelby Lynne, & Steve Earle.  He also wrote the score for an HBO movie

Julia can often be heard singing songs for the show 30 Rock. She won an Independent music award for best female vocalist and she’s sung harmony with Michael MacDonald.

Keyboardist Bennett is one of New York City’s most creative and versatile musicians. He has performed original music at clubs, concerts and festivals in the United States, the Caribbean, and throughout Europe.  He has been a featured performer with jazz stars Kurt Elling, Brian Lynch, Peter Bernstein, Rufus Reid, Bill Stewart, Billy Hart, Albert “Tootie” Heath, Ndugu Chancler,  Cassandra Wilson, Miri Ben-Ari and Yosvany Terry among others.

Drummer Ben’s music is on “Wedding Crashers”, “The OC” “Fast Food Nation” among other movies and TV shows.

Sami has won numerous prizes from international film festivals for his film scoring work.

Martin went to Oxford.  He’s as steeped in bluegrass mandolin as he is in electric funk guitar.

Some Raves:

Best wedding band ever!!!  We spent our entire evening on the dance floor along with everyone else!

Six years later, people are still talking about the fabulous music at our wedding party.  Milton and his band The Loyales played and sang their hearts out to Johnny Cash, the Beatles, Etta James, Prince, James Brown, and more.  No one could resist the urge to get up and dance.  Thank you, thank you, thank you to all!

I can unreservedly say that having The Loyales perform at our wedding was a lasting highlight. Not only did the band perform countless songs from their reserves, they played personal requests that truly “made the night”.

The Loyales provided music for our ceremony and reception at Brooklyn Winery. The music was amazing and we received so many compliments from our guests both young and old. We were provided with a long list of songs the band could perform along with recommendations for ceremony, dinner, dancing etc. In addition we made a few requests and the band delivered them exceptionally. Milton and the rest of the band kept the music upbeat and there was a great atmosphere on the dance floor. Would highly recommend!

We absolutely loved The Loyales. Our guests did, too. Having a solid live band was very important to us and it's a big ticket item, too, so we were thrilled that our choice worked out. Everyone had the best time dancing and singing along to The Loyales, who read the crowd well and totally rocked out.

Aaron and Milton were very communicative and helped us through the whole wedding band booking process (something we knew nothing about). They offered a structure that worked well for our ceremony+reception and we had live music for hours.

When the venue rental and gig was over, our guests starting shouting "one more song!" and The Loyales played an encore, which was awesome.

This all-star band gets an all the stars review. They were the best choice we could have ever hoped for at our wedding. The music selection available made us feel like we were selecting songs from a personal jute box of rock, R&B and funk! The Loyales did not fail to deliver on talent, energy and overall amazing-ness. Countless people still tell us how amazing our band was and the dance floor was never empty. They even accommodated a special request, Your Love by The Outfield, and knocked it out of the park. Would recommend to anyone with a passion and appreciate for music with a soul!
