  • The Heartbeat Band was AMAZING! My husband and I were just married in June and had this band at our wedding. Our guests are STILL talking about how amazing the music was - we were told our wedding was a top 10 for many people because of the music and dancing! Liz is amazing to work with and will help you through the entire process. This band/entertainment company comes highly recommended. Thank you!

  • Ariel performed at our June 2018 wedding and they were phenomenal! We are pretty picky when it comes to good music and we can honestly say that Ariel delivered. Everybody on site - from the musicians to the sound and setup crew - were extremely talented and professional. They brought such an amazing energy to our reception and kept everybody on the dance floor. Liz was incredibly helpful in talking us through all the details and helping us map out the night. We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Ariel and would highly recommend them!

  • I was married 6/9/2018 at the Highlands Country Club in Garrison, NY. I honestly can't get over how great the band was! They set the tone the whole night and the dance floor was packed. They were versatile, professional, and extremely talented. They really listened to us on how we wanted the night to flow and executed it perfectly. One of our guests said she wants to book them for her eventual wedding! If you want a party and a band that can do it all, book Ariel! Amazing

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you, Marion! We are so happy that we made your wedding day all that you dreamed of. We take great pride in the care we give each couple. I'm so glad that all the plans and the details we discussed worked to perfection!! Wishing you both every happiness!!

  • I got married on February 17th and used Ariel for my band. They were amazing!!! Everything went so perfectly. Liz is so nice and very easy to work with. The band played all the songs we wanted them to play and did not play any of the songs on our do not play list. People from our wedding are still talking about the band and keep saying how amazing they were. The night was so perfect and I could not be happier with how Ariel performed. Definitely use them. You will not regret it!

  • We love Heartbeat Dance Band!!!!!! We worked with Elizabeth from Ariel Music & Events and had Heartbeat play at our last two annual black tie events and they do not disappoint! They are an amazing band with a wide range of music selection from the old Big Band standards to the current pop hits. Heartbeat is fun and gets everyone up and out of their seats ready to dance the night away. Michael has an amazing voice and charms everyone with his smooth Sinatra style dinner music. Christi and the other musicians were super engaged with everyone and intuitively knew exactly the music everyone wanted to hear!!! Our members (lawyers and judges) are excited to know Heartbeat/Ariel will be the band at next year’s Barristers’ Ball and we can’t wait to see them again in 2019!!!!

  • This band was perfect for our wedding reception working in coordination with the caterers to make a perfect evening. Anyone who spoke to me at the wedding reception and afterwards always included a a statement about how great the band was. They kept people dancing and singing with there amazing musical skills.

  • Ariel Music Group was fantastic. Elizabeth was incredibly responsive and helpful. Having not used a full-time wedding planner, it was comforting to speak with Elizabeth to walk through the introductions and timeline for the wedding. Ariel listened to all of our music requests, and learned our wedding song. Their song list is current, and always getting updated. Go visit their showcase and hear their music. Very happy we used Ariel, we couldn't imagine using another group.

  • Couldn't have asked for a better night! The band took every detail into consideration and gave Beyonce a run for her money with their rendition of "Love on Top"! :) Very professional and responsive. People are still talking about how amazing the band was!

  • We could not have been more please with Ariel Music and Events, specifically the Heartbeat Dance Band which was fantastic! They played the music at our ceremony (saxophone and keyboard) and we had the rest of the group (10 pieces total...including trumpet!) for the rest of the day. They played from 4:30PM until Midnight with only a few small breaks. They were fantastic which is a huge understatement. They played all of our requested songs and could not have been more accommodating. Lawrence, the lead singer and Michael the M.C. were both wonderful people and kept everything on track for the night. This band does monthly "showcases" where you can see them perform in person before you make your decision. We went to a showcase and had seen them previously in Westport, CT at an outdoor venue. Once you see them at a showcase, you will want to book them immediately. And book quickly as they are in very high demand. I would recommend anyone looking for a group for their weddin... Read more

  • Every time my (now) husband and I went to a wedding, we'd always take note of the band or DJ and decided early on that we were set on a band for our wedding, and they had to be AMAZING! When it came time to plan our own wedding, we went to showcase after showcase, intent on finding a high energy group that would keep people dancing all night. My dad has been in a band my whole life and I wanted him to be able to sing a few songs with the band. After seeing Ariel's showcase we were convinced they were right for us. Lee and Liz were so helpful through the whole planning process including deciding which instruments to include for ceremony and reception, song choices, timing, etc.! Everyone commented on our band and we are so thankful and appreciative. We'd highly recommend Ariel!

  • They were such a highlight of our wedding night and the guests loved them! We got compliments about how great the band was all night long. They have an amazing sound and are extremely talented. They really know how to bring the energy and work with the crowd, they had the dance floor packed all night long. They also came to the rescue for our ceremony. We were supposed to have a violinist and guitar player during the ceremony (completely separate from Ariel) and I was told 20 minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start that they never showed up! The keyboardist from Ariel was there setting up to play for the cocktail hour, overheard what was going on and offered to step in last minute! He knew all the songs I wanted and even set the keyboard to sound like a violin. They also called their guitarist who was able to get the venue in time and stand in as well!

  • Ariel has been the entertainment for the Red Cross Celebrate Red Gala several times over the past 5 years. Their quality of musicianship is excellent and they have wonderful energy! Their manager works in great detail with you to meet your event's needs - for example, we needed low volume background music for the dinner portion of the night followed by upbeat dance music to close out the evening. We have had difficulty with lower volume requests with other entertainment in the past but Ariel did exactly as we requested and the guests were extremely pleased! Their prices are reasonable, too, and they are always reliable. Highly recommend them for any event!
