  • Booking Ariel for our wedding was a very smooth and straightforward process. Liz helped us from the very start and she was always extremely helpful and friendly. We had several long telephone calls and emails prior to the wedding to make sure we were all on the same page. She also liaised with the venue coordinator to make sure everything would run smoothly. Liz was extremely organized and thorough (which we love), she listened to our ideas and wishes and was very accommodating, and she also gave us advice and feedback as we went along. We had some special requests and she was very happy to help accommodate those too. Overall, the whole planning and pre-wedding communication was excellent. The band was absolutely amazing! All excellent musicians, and we can say that for sure because we are professional musicians ourselves! Frosty (band leader) arrived at the venue early, he was very calm and was extremely helpful the entire night, playing, singing, MCing & working the sound boa... Read more

  • We could not be more thankful for Ariel Music and Events' talent that entertained our guests all evening and night long. We hired Ariel a year prior to our event and worked closely with Liz throughout the process while previewing the band at a few of their showcases. With the many years of experience and variety of events that came along with Ariel, we were able to plan the perfect event down to the minute. The extensive/growing list of songs in their repertoire allowed us to hand select the songs that meant the most to us and would keep our guests entertained. The addition of a few "learned" songs really help us to personalize the night. Ariel provided the musical talent for our ceremony (singer and keys), cocktail hour (keys and sax) and for our reception (8 piece band). Beyond the music talent that was center-stage, we appreciated the technicians that were on-hand ensuring the evening was executed flawlessly ensuring the sound and lighting continued to fit the space. We can... Read more

    It was such a pleasure to assist you in planning the music for your wedding! It makes us all so happy to know how pleased you both were with the results. Thank you so much for taking the time after the wedding to give me feedback on your experience with us. It gave me some wonderful insights from a couple's perspective of what some of your happy surprises were and how we can be sure to include those details for our future clients. So helpful. Congratulations! Wishing you every happiness!

  • The Heartbeat Dance Band was AMAZING! We can’t say enough positive things about them. Either could our guests! Within the first 10 minutes, I had people coming up to me telling me how great they were. The dance floor was packed ALL night long. Liz, the band director was so great to work with. Any requests we had, she made them happen. Lawrence the MC was awesome. He was on top of everything. We knew right away we were in good hands. The band members engaged with the crowd and made it so fun for everyone. We were very picky when it came to choosing a band and we definitely made the right choice. The Heartbeat Dance Band is one of a kind. I can only hope to go to another wedding where they are playing!!

  • Ariel played at our outdoor tent wedding in central New Jersey, and they did not disappoint. My wife and I watched many highlight videos hoping to find a band that was both lively and affordable. Ariel was recommended through our wedding planner and once we watched their showcase highlights on YouTube, it was apparent they would be a great fit (little did we know, they were the absolute perfect fit). The entire 9 piece band, with multiple singers and a large brass section, was exactly what we were looking for. Ariel's management was thoroughly enjoyable and easy to work with during the planning of our wedding. There were multiple events that my wife and I were unable to attend to see Ariel perform live prior to our wedding, so it wasn't until our reception that we had the pleasure of watching them play. During our cocktail hour we had two of Ariel's musicians play, setting the tone for a relaxed and enjoyable hour prior to the reception. Once the actual reception began Ariel brought tr... Read more

  • The Heartbeat Dance Band was so much fun! They are all so talented and really got the crowd going - they nailed every song. They also even learned a few songs for us too. The dance floor was packed all night. After our wedding so many people kept telling us how incredible they were - everyone felt like they were at a concert! If excellent music and a lot of dancing is important to you at your wedding, then you have to hire the Heartbeat Dance Band!

  • We can’t say enough amazing things about Heartbeat Dance Band. Everyone at our wedding was dancing all night long!. We had so many compliments from our guests about our band and many plan to book the band for their own events. Don’t hesitate — book them if they’re available and your event will be a hit!

  • The Heartbeat band was absolutely perfect! From the music at the ceremony to the last song at the reception, the Heartbeat band never missed a beat and were incredible. They were so great to work with and would love to use them again in the future.

  • WOW. Ariel Music & Events (and especially the Heartbeat Dance Band) were PHENOMENAL. We are still on a high from our wedding and how amazing the band was. My husband and I knew we wanted a great band for our wedding reception, and Heartbeat delivered in every way. They blew us (and all of our guests) away with their energy and their talent. The energy on our dance floor was something I had never seen at a wedding before. The dance floor was packed the entire night - from the very beginning until the very end of the reception. This was largely due to the quality and energy of the Heartbeat Band. They knew exactly how to get the crowd going, and they knew which songs to play during which times in the night. They were truly the best wedding band I have ever seen in my life. Lawrence and the rest of the Heartbeat Band were flawless on our wedding day. I cannot count how many compliments we received about the band. People not only commented the night of our wedding, but we are STILL ge... Read more

  • We had a limited set up time since our ceremony was where the band would be. They were able to work with us and the venue to get it done. The band was the heart and soul of our wedding. The dance floor was filled all night. Great musicians - very professional. Guests are still telling us how great the band was.

  • Ariel played a variety of fun songs across our requested genres and played them all spectacularly. Our guests were on the dance floor all night and raved about the band for days following. They're also more affordable than comparably talented groups. Ariel gets the people going!

  • WE LOVED ARIEL! The moment we saw their showcase we knew they were the right band for us. Liz was terrific to work with, and they made our wedding! We still receive complements from our guests. We were also thrilled that they drew 3 hrs upstate to perform, and we didn't hear any complaints. Highly recommend!

  • Their voices were incredible, my dance floor was full the entire night, and they were so lovely to work with! Hiring Ariel music was the best decision for my wedding. I know there are so many options out there, so it's tough to decide - but I promise these guys are the best!!! :)

    Thanks so much Lindsey! Your wedding at the Tavern On The Green this past June was stunning visually and full of excitement and fun! We are so glad to have been able to contribute to its success!

  • I looked around for bands for our wedding for almost 5 months. When I came across Ariel Music and Events website, I was blown away by their sound! I had a few of my friends go see them at a free showcase and they said they had a great time. I booked them right after! They were so great about setting up times to talk, especially with me planning this whole thing out of state. To top it all off, the band was absolutely fantastic at our wedding!!! It has almost been a full month, and people are still talking about how fabulous the band was! Thank you for making our night so special and so much fun!

Jay sang our wedding song, Just The Way You Are by Biily Joel flawlessly! It was absolutely incredible! I recommend them to everyone! Thank you for an amazing night!

  • Ariel Band was one of the BEST decisions we made with our wedding! They were so professional, and they are absolutely phenomenal to listen to. Guests came up to us all night telling us how amazing our band was, and my husband and I couldn't agree more. We were SO happy with our decision to hire Ariel Band, and we 100% highly recommend them to anyone looking for a classy wedding band. They helped make our wedding the best ever, so much so that we literally have not stopped talking about our entertainment because that's how much we loved it!!!
