"CHOOSING THE METROPOLITAN PLAYERS WILL BE THE BEST DECISION YOU MAKE!"
The Metropolitan Players are the absolute best band and we cannot recommend them enough! We couldn't have been happier with the entire experience working together. From the moment we reached out for our initial information request, we knew we had found the perfect band. Erin is incredibly kind, generous, responsive, and accommodating and made the preparation process smooth and enjoyable; she was on top of everything and provided fantastic suggestions.
The band also knocked it out of the park and our wedding reception wouldn't have been the same with anyone else. Each musician is incredibly talented and together they brought so much energy to the reception. Everyone was out on the dance floor before the main course was even served! We couldn’t have been happier seeing our friends and family smiling and dancing together all night. It's been over a month since our wedding, and our friends and family continue to reach out to express how amazing the band was. They truly were one of the highlights of our wedding. We cannot say enough good things about Erin, Drew, and everyone else in The Metropolitan Players. They are professional, fun, and talented, and were a pleasure to work with. Choosing The Metropolitan Players will be the best decision you make while planning your wedding. We wish we could go back and do it all over again!

"TRULY THE BEST PART OF OUR WEDDING!"
I cannot say enough positive things about The Metropolitan Players. They were truly the best part of our wedding, not only the day of, but all the days leading up to it. Erin was so easy and comforting to work with! She answered every email with such joy and understanding, it made me feel so special and heard. The day of our wedding The Metropolitan Players went above and beyond the entire night. They played the exact music we wanted and had our guests dancing the entire time! They were so sweet to us and to our family and guests. During our wedding and afterwards, so many people have told us how amazing The Metropolitan Players were at our wedding. I would not only highly recommend them, but pretty much insist everyone have The Metropolitan Players at their wedding!
"KEPT EVERYONE DANCING THE ENTIRE NIGHT!"
AMAZING! The Metropolitan Players were awesome for our Montauk wedding! The planning process was so easy and their coordinator was extremely professional, organized and responsive to our emails and any questions we had. This alone made the planning so much easier and carefree.
We received so many positive reactions from our guests! The band had so much energy and kept everyone dancing the ENTIRE night. A few members even got on the dance floor and danced with our guests. They learned our wedding song, as well as a few other songs and performed them SO WELL! They kept the party going which definitely contributed to our wedding being so fun and a night to remember. THANK YOU Metropolitan Players, you guys are the best! I would HIGHLY recommend this band!

"THEY TRULY MADE OUR WEDDING A FAIRYTALE..."
Metropolitan Players played at our wedding on July 23, 2017 and they were absolutely amazing! They were extremely lively, played current music and kept our guests on the dance floor the entire time. Our guests are still talking about how great they were. They truly made our wedding a fairytale and we couldn't have pictured it without them.

"THEIR MUSIC IS UNPARALLELED!"
I have been to countless weddings, and have experienced the range of bands. My daughter as well is hugely fussy, and dragged me and others to listen to numerous bands before she and her now husband settled on Metropolitan Players. We could not be happier with their professionalism and talent, starting from the first day Brittany listened to them to the closing dance at the wedding (and Erin, manager, runs a tight ship! She is there every minute over email and in person as needed). They are incredibly responsible, and their music is unparalleled.
Our wedding guests raved for weeks on end. Moreover, they will play everything you ask for, without filling in with their own choices (my sister had an experience where she gave a band the list of songs and heard only a few of them to her dismay; the band played what they wanted rather than what she wanted). They will also leave out whatever you don't want them to play. And, the music is energetic but not deafening, so people will not have headaches from the pulsing sound. Importantly, each song is distinct, sounds just like the originals, and there is no experience of multiple songs running into each other in a way that sounds like one overly long and indistinguishable noise set.
I was truly amazed at how excellent they were. The band members are young and filled with talent and enthusiasm. They will get everyone up and dancing and you will never be able to match their ability anywhere. I am sure of that. I would hire them over and over if I could!

"EVERYONE WAS IMPRESSED!"
Working with and having The Metropolitan Players at my wedding was beyond amazing. From the start, Erin was the most responsive and enthusiastic person to work with. My Dad was impressed with the band from the first email they exchanged, and he had a gut feeling they would be wonderful to work with. We went to see them perform and were impressed immediately. Throughout the whole wedding process (a full year) Erin responded to the emails my father and I (and the groom) sent to her in such a timely manner. She is so well organized and she delivered on the day of the wedding.
The band was excellent, and people were dancing all night until the very end, and even then everyone on the dance floor was shouting "one more song!" and of course, they agreed. I had great feedback from my friends and family and everyone was impressed. I would highly recommend Metropolitan Players! Thanks again for making my wedding so entertaining!

"FIVE STARS. WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE & EVERYONE!"
FROM THE BRIDE...
Stop everything you are doing and book the Met Players right now! Words can’t express how incredible they were at my wedding this past weekend. Every single person at the wedding raved about the band and many have called and texted me in the days since to gush again over how incredible they were. We asked the band to play a specific version of our first dance song and they did so beautifully. They played the songs we requested flawlessly and also did a great job of reading the room and playing just what our guests wanted to hear. The dance floor was packed the entire time!
I would be remiss not to mention Erin, who really was an angel throughout the entire planning process. Every communication we had with her made us feel confident and calm. She was so helpful in answering our many questions, making suggestions, and generally reassuring us that everything would go smoothly. I wish I had another event to plan just so I could party with the Met Players again! Do not pass up the opportunity to have them at your wedding or event!
- Dana W-S, NY
...AND FROM THE GROOM!
The Met Players were unbelievable. My now wife and I spent months before the wedding watching their YouTube videos constantly, getting pumped for the big day. Believe me when I tell you that they were so much better than we could have even imagined. All of our guests were on the dance floor the entire party and days later we are still getting compliments about the band, their songs, and their energy. Special shout out to Erin who was beyond helpful and had almost as much enthusiasm about my wedding as I did. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Top of the line. 5 stars. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.
- Brad L, NY
"HANDS DOWN THE BEST BAND AROUND!"
LOOK NO FURTHER for the perfect wedding band!! The Metropolitan players are professional, dedicated, sweet, caring, and above all, extremely talented & accommodating. We had our wedding June 2016 in a barn upstate NY and the band absolutely killed it. From customizing certain songs and surprising us with learning new songs at such an amazing turn around. I would hire these amazing people for any event. Our guests absolutely loved them and we had so much fun.
Thank you especially to Erin, the band manager, for always being super detailed, organized, and always calm. Hands down best band around. Recommend them 1000000x over. JUST BOOK THEM, you and your future wife/husband will not regret!
- Tricia S, NY
"SIMPLY PUT, THEY WERE THE BEST!"
The Metropolitan Players was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. In short, they had our guests dancing the entire night and asking us “Who is this band and where did you find them?”
Throughout the planning process, Erin was so wonderful to work with – extremely professional, prompt with responses, and so helpful with the many questions I had. Erin read our song style well and provided amazing song recommendations for our ceremony music when we felt we had run out of ideas.
When our wedding day arrived, meeting Erin was like meeting an old friend. We felt completely at ease. The band sang ever song perfectly, their energy remained high, and throughout the night, guests continually came up to my husband and me to tell us how amazing the band was. Even our venue and photographer asked us where we found this amazing band. Not only did they think the band sounded awesome, but they also noted how easy The Metropolitan Players was to work with – a true testament to how amazing this band is!
We were absolutely thrilled and feel we were so lucky to have found The Metropolitan Players. We will be happily recommending them without hesitation to anyone we know getting married. Simply put, they were the best!

"WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO START CRASHING WEDDINGS THEY ARE PLAYING AT SO WE CAN DANCE MORE!"
We had seen the Metropolitan Players play at a close friend's wedding, and when we got engaged, there was no question that we wanted them to play at our wedding! Having a great band was a major priority for us - we love to dance and wanted to be on the dance floor the entire night. And that's exactly what happened! From cocktail hour to the first song of the night to the last song of the night, the Metropolitan Players sounded great and got everyone ready to party. Our friends and family could not stop dancing and telling us how great the band was. They had a great variety of songs, and were able to make the necessary tweaks to make our first dance exactly perfect.
Planning with Erin was so easy, and it was clear how much she cared about making us happy. The vocalists, Bryan, Chris H and Hannah S were AMAZING and Kelsey is a SHOWSTOPPER. Chelsea was so wonderful at keeping everything running smoothly throughout the night, and even managing a few curve balls for us. We could not recommend the Metropolitan Players more, and we're going to have to start crashing weddings they are playing at so we can dance more! Thanks for making our night perfect!
- Kathryn D, NY
"ERIN MADE THE PLANNING PROCESS SEAMLESS!"
Our wedding day went so perfectly and The Metropolitan Players played a huge role in this! Right from the start, Erin was so wonderful to work with. She replied to all of my emails/questions in a timely manner, and was so helpful with her responses at that. She was so easy to work with and made the planning process seamless and less stressful. She also was receptive to some last minute changes that we had to make days before the wedding. I cannot recommend this band highly enough. Many of our guests commented how great they were, and the dance floor was always full!
- Jen K
"INCREDIBLE IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD"
If you are looking for a band - stop right now and book Metropolitan Players. They are INCREDIBLE in every sense of the word - super professional and prompt during the planning stages and their talent just blew all of our guests away. Our dance floor was packed the entire night and we have received countless compliments.

"THIS IS THE BAND MY FRIENDS WILL BE TALKING ABOUT FOR YEARS!"
The Metropolitan Players played our wedding on May 15th in Buffalo, NY. Katie (my wife) and I have been to a lot of weddings, and this band is by far the greatest wedding band we have ever heard. First, Erin was phenomenal when it came to communication and planning. She was completely and utterly attentive to our needs. The night of the wedding she handled everything flawlessly including last minute changes to announcements, etc.
Ok, now the band...talk about incredible. The energy, the talent, the feeling the crowd's energy...it was amazing. We went with a 10-piece ensemble, so the horns were a particular highlight that we strongly recommend. When the night was coming to a close, we didn't want the party to end so we asked Erin if they would play 30 min longer and they did, including having the three vocalists dancing with us while singing on the dance floor. This is the band my friends will be talking about for years. Thanks so much Metropolitan Players!
- Daniel W, NY
"NO ONE WANTED THE NIGHT TO END"
I am dying for another friend or family member to get married so I can dance with the Metropolitan Players again! From the start, communication with Erin was so easy and fun, it really made the planning part a blast. The song list is so extensive and the energy of the band is absolutely amazing. Guests of all ages danced the night away.
Guests have been contacting me asking where I found such an amazing band. At the end of the night, we were all cheering for more songs; no one wanted the night to end, having so much fun on the dance floor! You won't regret choosing the Metropolitan Players for your wedding, or for any special event. Cheers to a fantastic group of talented people. Thanks again!

"AN AMAZING BAND MAKES FOR AN AMAZING WEDDING, AND
THE METROPOLITAN PLAYERS DID NOT DISAPPOINT!"
What an amazing band! We loved them the moment we saw them in rehearsal but they impressed us so much more live at our venue. We had 4 straight hours of dancing and the band kept the dance floor full and showed a diverse array of voices from the lead singers. Every guest, young and old, was on the dance floor. We have received so many compliments about how wonderful The Metropolitan Players were! Erin and Chelsea were great to work with and we felt like everything was coordinated seamlessly. Their organization and efficiency made this part of wedding planning stress-free! We would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to dance the night away at their wedding. An amazing band makes for an amazing wedding, and The Metropolitan Players did not disappoint! 5 stars :)

"THE METROPOLITAN PLAYERS HAVE COMPLETELY CHANGED THE STANDARD OF WHAT A 'WEDDING BAND' SHOULD BE"
From our first interaction with Erin to the last song at our reception, The Metropolitan Players were outstanding. We were impressed by the professional approach, clear communication, and incredible talent of this group. Every question was answered and our requests were all granted. If you are looking for the perfect group of musicians for your event, you've found it. The Metropolitan Players have completely changed the standard of what a "wedding band" should be.
From the moment the band started playing, it felt as though we were at our own private concert. Our guests could not wait to get on the dance floor. During dinner, we had a variety of acoustic performances which created a wonderful atmosphere for our first meal as husband and wife. Our first dance was incredible. We fell in love with the version of Feel My Love by Jenn on Youtube and asked if she could be one of the vocalists on our Wedding Day. Not only was she there to sing our song, but her voice is something I will never forget. That moment felt like it was created uniquely for us. Similarly, our mother/son dance and father/daughter dance were true musical experiences. The rest of the evening flowed from one song to the next, with a perfect balance of songs we requested and perfect selections by the band that got everyone dancing. I didn't want to leave the room, for fear I would miss a song!
The collective talent of these musicians far exceeded any expectations. They truly feel the music they play and connect with the couple and the vibe of the guests. I hope that every person that performed at our wedding knows how much we appreciated the soundtrack they provided for the most perfect day. We would recommend The Metropolitan Players to anyone looking to have a personalized experience with incredible musicians and coordinators. Thank you just doesn't seem like enough to express our gratitude!

"WE WANTED A DANCE PARTY FROM START TO FINISH AND THEY DELIVERED!"
I cannot explain to you in words how amazing The Met Players are! They made our wedding truly amazing and special. Our guests were blown away with their energy and talent. The dance floor was packed all night. They are really great about being flexible with you on what you want your wedding to look like and what you want the vibe to be. We wanted a dance party from start to finish and they delivered from the very first hour dance set! We got the 11-piece band with all the horns and it made the night beyond special. You are crazy not to hire them! I hope to go to another wedding they are at! Tell them Christina and Michael sent you!!! Love the Met Players and Erin!
- Christina & Michael
"WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE METROPOLITAN PLAYERS TO ANYONE GETTING MARRIED!"
Erin, Drew, Adriane and every member of the Metropolitan Players are amazing. We got married in September 2017 and had our reception at Lawrence Beach Club in Atlantic Beach, NY. The steel drums/keys at the cocktail hour, music at the reception, the vibe and The Metropolitan Players' help with keeping everything flowing was just incredible. All of our guests had nothing but great things to say about the band and we would highly recommend The Metropolitan Players to anyone getting married. Erin was a pleasure to work with from day 1 and all of the songs we discussed in our meetings prior to the big day along with the vibe we were envisioning came to life. It was the best day ever and The Metropolitan Players were a huge part of it.
- Tim & Kristen H, NY
"OUR GUESTS WERE OUT OF THEIR SEATS AND DANCING THE WHOLE NIGHT!"
We cannot say enough good things about this band!! My husband and I were married a few weeks ago and our friends and family are still raving about how great the band played. A few of our guests even said, " That was the best band I have ever seen at a wedding." Erin was extremely helpful and responsive from start to finish, which I really appreciated. She took all of our requests and the band delivered exactly what we were looking for. Our guests were out of their seats and dancing the whole night. The band truly made our wedding such a fun night and we highly recommend using The Metropolitan Players!

"THE METROPOLITAN PLAYERS MADE EVERY SECOND OF OUR WEDDING RECEPTION A DREAM COME TRUE!"
Wow! Just wow! We are unaware of the appropriate amount of words we could ever use to describe how incredible our band was. Professional, energetic, charismatic, passionate, talented, are just a few to describe them!
Their energy radiated throughout our venue and we received so many compliments from our guests on just how fantastic they were. Their voices matched all of the songs and their passion kept everyone on the dance floor.
The Metropolitan Players made every second of our wedding reception a dream come true! It’s hard to pick just one moment that stood out to us the most, but our cake cutting song was everything we dreamed of and more.
We can’t thank Erin enough for making every detail personalized to us as a couple! Erin was in constant communication throughout the entire process. We thank Alex for running the music at our reception with ease, grace, and a whole lot of fun! And to all of the musicians that made our reception that place to be—we thank you for your dedication, talent, energy, and passion!
- Corrine & Liam
"EXCELLENT THROUGH AND THROUGH!"
I can't say enough positive things about the Metropolitan Players. First, they were incredibly easy to work with and took a lot of the stress out of planning. Second, they were absolutely terrific the day of -- all of our guests, young and old, loved the music and were up dancing. Third, in the months following the wedding, I keep hearing great feedback from my guests about the band. Everyone had a blast and the band was a huge part of that. I've recommended them to multiple friends planning weddings and am pleased to recommend them more broadly in this review. Excellent through and through!
- Elizabeth W, NY
"ERIN AND HER TEAM WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO MAKE THE DAY THE MOST FUN MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE EVER HAD!"
Erin and the Met Players made our wedding. Our guests are still raving about them and how incredible they were. Without them, I’m not sure the reception would’ve been as memorable or fun. I met with Erin a few times throughout my engagement and to be honest, it was some of the best parts of wedding planning! She was always so welcoming, supportive and always had a solution or suggestion to any issue I was trying to navigate from trying to find a videographer last minute, how to handle entrances/intros with divorced parents, etc. As if that wasn’t enough, none of our crazy ideas or song choices were too far to suggest. They learned some of the most random songs that we just had to hear that day, which made our night every time they played one. Her and her team went ABOVE and beyond to make the day the most fun my husband and I have ever had.
