Music soundtracks all the formative eras of our lives, from childhood to our college years and beyond. So when it comes to your own wedding, the most significant event you'll ever throw, you don't want an uninspired wedding singer. You need awesome musicians who can play everything you love, get your aunt on the dance floor and leave everyone with the lasting impression of your impeccable taste in music. We've found these awesome bands for you, and they're all playing Rock the Wedding Bells, on Wednesday, February 26 at The Bell House.
We've lined up eight bands that are not just great at playing weddings--these are kick-ass bands, period, filled with gigging musicians who've performed with David Byrne, Jay-Z, Andrew Bird, Norah Jones, AIR and more. Whether your vision includes a pop string quartet who can cover the Smiths, a dance band that can play Janelle Monae and Johnny Cash, Prohibition-era jazz, 80s jams, classic rock, R&B or soul, you'll hear the best bands in New York to rock your wedding.
Marriage officiant Matt Levy, of The Levys' Unique New York, will be your emcee, and Delaney Barbecue, which is now catering weddings with their awesome 'cue, will be serving up mini brisket sandwiches.
