100% worth the money. Definitely pricey, but if you want an incredible band that will keep your entire wedding dancing all night this is who you want. They were not only incredible the day of, but they were one of the easiest vendors I worked with while planning our wedding. Steve was so responsive and patient with all of my questions. We had them play for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. They helped the whole day run so smoothly.
I do not have words to describe how talented the band is or how much fun they made our wedding. The entire dance floor was packed all night, during shout I was positive we were going to break the dance floor. Through out the night I was asked constantly about them, "where did you find them!", "this is the best band I have ever heard", "it sounds like I'm listening to a recording but way better", "I need to have them for my wedding/my daughters/my sons wedding", "Every song is incredible", and so on... At the end of the wedding we chanted for an encore and they kindly obliged with one last song. After that was over there was an actual line to shake some of their hands, say thank you, and ask for their cards. I've never seen that at another wedding.
If you have it in the budget, do yourself a favor and book Atomic Funk Project, you will not be disappointed! I wish I had the option of attaching a video so everyone could see and hear the show they put on.
AMAZING BAND! We could not be happier with our choice to book Atomic Funk Project. They had our guests, from the little kids to the older adults, on the dance floor all night! The compliments and questions about where we found the band were non-stop. Also, working with them was so so easy. They were very accommodating to our requests, big and small. Would definitely highly recommend booking them to everyone.
Thanks so much you two!! We have so much fun with lovely couples like you!!!!
Dave and the entire Atomic Funk Project crew were a fantastic addition to our wedding. It was important to me and my wife to have a great band. AFP was it. First of all, their music catalog consists of a collection of modern pop as well as all the classics. They worked with us to define the musical program throughout the night but noted that the music needs to follow the party. As a musician myself, I appreciated this philosophy immensely. Our wedding was a tricky one. My wife is Dominican and I am Greek/Italian. Half of the guests were traveling from the DR and other counries and so we needed Latin music, as well as traditional Greek. We brought in a DJ duo to cover that stuff and alternate with the band. We were concerned that it might feel frantic given that the reception was only 4 hours long, but thanks to AFP and their on-site musical director, everything went incredibly smooth and they sounded great! Every single one of our guests mentioned how good the band was. A week before the wedding, we decided to add a brass marching band as a novelty experience at the cocktail hour and had them play two custom songs that became our theme songs for the day. We asked AFP if they would mind closing the party creating a version of one of the songs. They were more than accommodating and made it happen. It literally brought tears to our eyes when they started playing it. Thank you, AFP for giving us a night to remember. If you want a band with class, funk, sexiness and a pro sound these are your guys. Highly Recommended!
George and Christina thanks so much for sharing your incredibly fun day with us!
Atomic Funk Project gave an amazing performance and played a huge role in making our wedding so much fun. Would highly recommend them. Thank you guys!
Hey Max and Anne, thanks so much for having us share a special couples special day!!
BOOK. THIS. BAND. My wife and I saw them a few times at Brooklyn Bowl and thought they were just incredible. They were even better at our wedding. Everyone from our 8-year old cousins to my 70-year old uncle was on the dance floor. The vibe was mega, the set list was perfect, and almost everyone told me that this was BY FAR the best band they have ever seen. simply put, they made the wedding. It was not cheap flying them out to California but it was the best decision we ever made! I cannot say it anymore emphatically. Book this band!
Atomic Funk was absolutely incredible at our wedding this July. They were so easy to work with during the booking process, and wonderful to get to know while they were here in Hamilton for our event. We spent almost the entire evening on the dance floor, and I didn't stop hearing about how talented and fun they were from our guests. They interacted with our guests, kept the energy up the ENTIRE night, and made our first dance one we (and our guests) will never forget. I cannot thank Atomic Funk enough for being such an integral part of our wedding day.
Hey Britty and Brendan, the entire band and production team had an absolute blast getting to know you. Thanks again we hope to see you again!
The Live Music Pros and Atomic Funk Project have truly made our wedding experience extraordinary. We have heard from multiple people from our wedding that this was the best band ever. The wedding had a tremendous energy, and we cannot thank Dave enough for all of what he and his team has done.
Hey Joel and Sarah, it was a pleasure being a part of your celebration! Enjoy!!
Fantastic experience from start to finish! Everyone raved about our wedding band and loved the music selection!
Hey Lauren and Michael, we so enjoyed planning with you and keeping everyone up and dancing! Thanks so much for your kind consideration and the joyful moments that we'll always remember too!
We've lost count of how many guests said "this is the best wedding band I've ever heard!" We couldn't agree more. Their energy and talent was unbelievable and they had everyone up and dancing the entire night. We can't imagine our wedding without them!!
Hey Sam and Graham, let's repeat!! Thanks for having us as part of your day.
Atomic Funk Project exceeded our expectations! I went to check them out at a small performance hosted by the band. I knew I loved their vibe right away and was set on hiring them. We booked them early on in the planning process, so by the time the wedding came around I was hoping I still loved them as much as I did the first time I saw them. They honestly blew me away! Atomic Funk Project commands the room, they are professional, so so so much fun, and kept our entire room dancing and singing the night away. The planning process was simple and streamlined making is easy to communicate. I truly can't say enough about AFP. Our guests still talk about how amazing the band was!!!
Kristen and Michael you too were so so so much fun! We'll dance with you again any time!
WOW! Atomic Funk Project totally blew us away! We searched far and wide for a band and were so excited when we came across their website. Working with Candace leading up to our wedding was super easy and the document we filled out prior to talking to our contact for the evening was very thorough. They were also very accommodating with the special request I had to allow our best friend to sing our first dance song.
It's always a little hard to tell in videos if a band is going to meet your expectations and I can say with certainty, AFP exceeded ours. People are still texting us about our band a few months after our wedding.
Everyone was dancing all night and the music played was a perfect mix for both ours and our parents' friends. Highly recommend you book them for your wedding asap!!!
Thanks so much Sarah! Saul absolutely killed your song and the band loved it! Congratulations again.
My husband and I married a few months ago now and live music pros sang at our wedding and I can’t express how glad we were with our selection. They delivered an amazing performance and brought an energy that everyone enjoyed.
Our choices for lead singers, Brandi and Terrance, complimented each other so well and hit every song to perfection (including our requested song that they learnt specifically for the wedding). The band also were fantastic and they did a great job keeping the guests dancing their shoes off.
Live music productions were easy to work with. Their set up was seamless and worked with the venue to make sure our day went off without a hitch.
Thank you for the memories!
Hey Margaret and Andrew thanks so much, we loved it too!!
No need to look any further, Atomic Funk Project is your band. We first saw the band play at Industry City and knew they were right for our wedding as we wanted lots of funk and classics with some new pop thrown in. Brandi, Deon’te, and Jonathan were not only amazing singers, they were great performers and bursting with energy. Never have I seen the crowd at a wedding constantly applauding a band mid-songs, but they are just that good. We danced all night.
Allie, thanks so much for sharing your special day with us! We had almost as much fun as you did. Hugs!
We are SO happy with our decision to book Live Music Pros for our wedding on 4/28/18! The music for our entire day (from our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception) was completely perfect and we got countless compliments from our wedding guests who said it was one of the best bands they had ever seen play at a wedding! The majority of our guests were on the dance floor the entire night, which is exactly what we wanted. We wish we could go back and do it all over again!!!!
Hey Roxanne and Richard thanks for letting us share your special day!
If you want the A-team, look no further. We booked Atomic Funk Group for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, and they were everything we could’ve hoped for and more. We had 200 guests, with ages that ranged from 19 to 80, and wanted a versatile band that everyone would enjoy. Atomic Funk played everything from Motown to top 40s, and most importantly, had everyone up and dancing the entire evening. At the end of the night no one wanted to leave the dance floor, and in hindsight, I wish we would’ve paid for an extra hour just so we could’ve kept the party going with them. Our guests are still raving about how much they loved the band and how great they were. Atomic Funk was extremely easy to work with leading up to the wedding; they were accommodating and always responded to emails right away. We cannot wait to see them perform again, since all our friends are already lining them up for their future weddings. Do yourself a favor and lock them in for your wedding - it will be the best money you spend.
Hey Corrine and Brandon, thanks so much!! We had almost as much fun as you did! Hugs.
Every member of Live Music Pros epitomized class and professionalism from day one. They were extremely easy to work with, flexible, diligent, and understanding. They were by far the biggest hit of the night- every guest complemented us on their quality, sound, enthusiasm, set list, and volume control. Would highly recommend them regardless of your budget- it will be the smartest and easiest decision you make.
Hey Jake, it was a pleasure to participate in the joy of your day! Thanks for having us there.
When people say “the band makes the wedding,” they’re right—and in this case, this band made our wedding absolutely amazing! Months later, we are still getting compliments. The band was organized, easy to work with, and on the day of the event delivered on all of our requests. They interacted with the crowd well, and the dance floor was packed the whole time.
If you’re concerned about the band’s promise that no matter who performs, the quality will be consistent: don’t be. It was absolutely accurate.
Picking entertainment for our wedding was totally nervewracking at the time. In retrospect, picking this band was the single best decision we made!
This band is amazing. They were so great to work with and then their performance was awesome. The dance floor was never empty and people keep telling us how great they were. You will not regret hiring this band.
We had Atomic Funk Project play at our wedding in June 2018. We knew the musicians were talented when we chose them to play our wedding, but we never could have known how incredible their performance would be at our wedding! The band played our ceremony and cocktail hour in addition to the party. They even learned a song for us for our ceremony and it was executed perfectly!
Throughout the party, the entire band played flawlessly, the MC was wonderful, the vocalists were all SO talented and the entire performance was amazing! Our guests were up dancing on the dance floor for the entire night (even the older guests and even through dinner and dessert)! We can't thank the band enough.
Leading up to the wedding, the band managers were professional and helpful in assisting us in planning each part of our event. Their questionnaire helped us choose types of music, specific songs and artists we wanted to hear, and we were more than pleased on the day of.
Thank you Atomic Funk Project!
Hey Julie and Gabriela, we had so much FUN at your celebration we're saying thank you for having us!
Live music Pro's made my wedding the BEST! My guests are still raving about how amazing this band was and I would hire them for any of my future events!
Kathryn, you two had a whole lot to do with the great energy we participated in! Thanks!!
Live Music Pros performed for our daughter's wedding.From the start of the process they were professional, enthusiastic and responsive to our vision of what the day would be. On the actual wedding day, they brought the house down!! They responded to the mood of the crowd and the crowd responded to them! NO ONE SAT DOWN!! Book Live Music Pros and your family, friends and most importantly, the Bride and Groom, will be thrilled and talking about the day for months afterwards!
We hired Atomic Funk Project was for my daughter's wedding. It was the best decision in the entire process. Live music Pros was professional, well organized, transparent and collaborative at every step of the process. They were great at getting to the right music for our tastes and they offered an amazing repertoire.
HOWEVER!! the best part of all was when they took the stage. The crowd just lit up! The mood was transformed to the coolest most fun party anyone has ever been to in their life. We had a hard time getting people to sit down to eat. I can not say enough good things about this choice and the one thing our guests talked about the next day was how awesome the music was. You just can not go wrong with these people.
We can't recommend Live Music Pros enough!! The first thing everyone has said to us since our wedding (after congratulations) has been that our band was amazing!! They absolutely made the day. The dance floor was packed from start to finish, which is exactly what we wanted! They were incredibly wonderful to work with, really taking the time to understand our musical vision. Once we had gone over all the details, it was easy to trust them to bring it all to life.
The ABSOLUTE. BEST. WEDDING. BAND. OUT. THERE! Atomic Funk Project, from Live Music Pros, is simply incredible. All of our friends and guests have told me it was the best wedding band they had ever heard (and I agree!). I've been to weddings with some of the highest-end (and most expensive) NYC wedding bands out there -- AFP blew all of them out of the water and didn't break our budget. Our dance floor was overflowing the entire night. We ultimately decided on the 10-piece band: the vocalists were out of this world amazing, the horns lit up the tent, and the extra percussion adds so much depth to the band's sound. Gary and his whole team at Live Music Pros were amazing to work with. They were fast, incredibly knowledgeable, and responsive, and helped coordinate our band and our ceremony music (working with us to find the perfect combination of a cello/guitar duo for our ceremony). Both were absolutely perfect. The band in particular spent a lot of time working with us before our wedding day to make sure they fully understood our music tastes. They even learned the Jay-Z/Kanye version of 'Otis' for us (one of our slightly non-traditional specific requests), and rapped for us. The dance floor exploded. It was unbelievable. I want to hire Atomic Funk Project for every party I ever throw. Cannot recommend them highly enough!
How wonderfully kind you are! The entire Live Music Pros organization thanks you for your fantastic guests and super selves!
We were very disappointed with Live Music Pros and would advise you to save your money, as this cost us over $12k and was the worst part of our wedding. My wedding was under a tent and it started to rain so they just stopped playing because they did not come prepared to protect their wires. The music just stopped, and we didn't have a proper "ending" to our wedding. They also changed the timing of when they would play, unbeknownst to us (and what was agreed to in the contract) and told us that they were ending 15 minutes earlier than scheduled. 15 minutes may not seem like a lot, but since they were only playing for less than 2 hours, it was. Additionally, they did not adhere to our song requests. They did not play 1 slow song the entire night. They also played mostly T-40 songs, which we specifically asked to avoid. Also, the band that they sent was quite different from the band that we saw perform at Brooklyn Bowl. Another warning - about 2 weeks before your wedding, they will email you to ask if you want "optional" lighting for an additional $2k. They show a link to a video of the band with the lighting and without - the video of the band without the lighting is basically pitch black so you feel obligated to get the lighting, since you spent over $10k on the band in the first place. It was very disappointing that they were not upfront with this additional cost.
I’m sorry that your wedding didn't end the way you envisioned. I assure you that our priority is serving our clients and that we had no interest in stopping early. Regarding us being "the worst part of the wedding": your guests were dancing all night, we received many compliments, and your planner wants to work with us in the future. Regarding the rain: you agreed to provide a location for the band to perform "whether rain or shine.” At 11:40, it started raining heavily. The stage, musicians, and equipment got wet. We had no choice but to stop (the music didn't "just stop": we wired a speaker for music and a mic for announcements). Regarding the timing: we were told to take the stage at 7:45 by your venue/planner, and we did. We were also told to stop playing at 11:45 due to a noise ordinance. The rain stopped the show at 11:40, but from 7:45 we were ready/willing/able to perform the full amount of music. Regarding your requests: we use an online document to ensure that we are on the same page about all details. The facts are: we played all of your special requests; 0 of your do-not-plays; 9 songs by your 4 favorite artists; 21/27 of your favorite songs; and we catered toward older material per your wishes. Saying that the band was "quite different" implies that we misled you. We’re able to put on world-class performances because we don't have a fixed set of "wedding band" performers: we work with independent professional musicians who would otherwise be on national tours, on Broadway, etc. This is what enables us to deliver superior performances at competitive prices, and our clients trust us to produce an amazing show within their parameters. Regarding lighting: we offered it to you upfront for $999 (not $2k). Again, I want to express my regret that things did not end the way you intended. I hope you can understand from our perspective that we did everything possible to put on a great show for you and that there was no way to safely continue. - Steve, Co-Founder
