About The Loyales

"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!
-Eliza

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!
-Claire

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".

    We love The Loyales!

    The Loyales could not have been more perfect for our wedding – professional, easy to work with, really talented, and ultimately, great sound. Milton made a point to get to know our music preferences in the planning up to the wedding and worked with us to pull together a song list that was perfect for our ceremony and reception. They kept everyone dancing the whole night. Two months later, guests are still raving about how awesome The Loyales were!

    I would get married again just to hire this band...

    Our entire experience with the Loyales was amazing from day 1. They were very quick to respond to all our emails and were professional throughout the entire process. The energy that they brought to our reception was beyond amazing. This band is absolutely electric when they are playing. They turned our reception into an all-out dance party and our guests will not stop talking about how fun and awesome the band was. Milton really tried to get to know us and our musical taste and crafted a set list that suited our wedding perfectly. I really cannot recommend them highly enough. If you are looking for a band for any event or occasion, you could not go wrong hiring the Loyales.

    The Loyales were a hit!

    Aaron and Milton made planning the music and flow of our wedding so easy. They really understood what we were looking for and we were so happy with every song they played at our wedding. We had numerous people come up to us after the event to tell us how much they loved them. They had people dancing all night and really read the room well! We were a little particular about our first dance and parent dance songs and they were very accommodating and played them beautifully! Book them!!
