  • We chose Ariel music for our wedding day band! It was absolutely the BEST choice we made for our wedding!!!! Music was the most important part of our day and when we first heard Ariel they were so amazing!!!! They had so much energy, went with the flow of the crowd, and kept everyone dancing all night! They even let me be the center of attention in singing my favorite song to the crowd! (Closer) it was so easy to work with Liz and the members of the band and they were so willing to do everything I requested!! Simply the best day ever and it wouldn't of been the same without Ariel!!!!! They made our wedding day SO MUCH FUN! I wish I could redo this day!!! Thank you Ariel!!!! I would recommend this band to anyone!!!

  • We used the Heartbeat band from Ariel music & events for our wedding in Connecticut this past June. They were worth every penny. The one thing people continue to rave about from our wedding to this day is the band. Their energy was incredible, the song selection perfect and working with them was a pleasure. People who never dance told me they danced at my wedding. They couldn't help themselves! They did the perfect mix of oldies and new songs that catered to everyone. When preparing for my wedding they took into account all our song requests and were very responsive to our emails and calls. They were as accommodating as I could expect. I highly recommend this band to anyone planning a wedding. They're a true gem!

  • Ariel was absolutely fantastic. People we're dancing til the very end. Liz was very helpful in planning the layout of the night (and had multiple phone calls with me), and the band is extremely talented and professional. Love

  • Ariel really rocked our wedding. We liked the band because of the diversity of the vocalists - they've got someone that can sing everything - and they've all got great voices. We went and saw the band at their showcase twice and they were even better on our wedding day. Liz was great to work with - very responsive to emails and sat on the phone with us to go over every detail of the evening. On the day of the wedding, the band knew how to execute our requests as well as feed off the energy of the crowd to play just what was needed at the right times to get everyone on their feet. The dance floor was rocking before dinner and it was almost a let down when we had to sit down and eat. EVERYONE - literally 200 people at our wedding - commented on how PHENOMENAL the band was. People raved. They sounded great. Horns were top-notch. Vocalists were top-notch.... and as I mentioned, they were experienced enough to know what songs to play at what times to get as many people on the dance floor as... Read more

  • Heartbeat Dance Band is excellent. There are not enough adjectives to describe the immense talent of these musicians. My daughter's wedding absolutely rocked! The dance floor was never empty. Even after the last song of the night, our crowd did not want the band to stop and chanted "One more song! One more song! One more song!" And the band complied. Simply the best. You can't go wrong hiring Heartbeat for your special occasion. Also, Liz, the band manager, was wonderful to work with. She helped make the magic happen.

    responded with the following comments.

    Tony, the bandleader for Heartbeat Dance Band, had nothing but raves to say about Erica's wedding. The staff was so helpful, the crowd was so pumped, and the wedding was a huge success!! Congratulations! It was a pleasure to work with you to plan all the details and to see it all come together!

  • We have had a great experience Ariel Music & Events at the weddings of both our son and our daughter. They are easy to deal with up front, are very fabulous at delivering what you ask for, and have an amazing sound. If you want a party where the dance floor is always full and your guests are having a great time, this is the group to work with. Have fun!

  • This review is for Heartbeat Dance Band, who performed for our October 15 wedding of 175 people in a tented reception in CT. We communicated with Liz throughout the booking and planning process - she was very diligent, responsive and helpful throughout. The band was willing to negotiate when it came to add-ons like an extra band member (we ended up with 9 pieces), ceremony and cocktail hour musicians, which was fantastic and really helped us to be able to have one music/sound provider for everything. Heartbeat was incredible. The entire time they were performing, our dance floor was packed and our guests were having the best time. We've received so many compliments from guests - multiple guests commented that during dinner, they were loving the music and expected that it was a recording but looked over to see a crooner performing on a vintage mic - this was such an unexpected and excellent touch. My now husband found Heartbeat online and we found their value to be fantastic compare... Read more

  • Heartbeat Dance Band was amazing!!! From the beginning, Liz was super professional and easy to work with. She helped ensure the band knew that we wanted tons of dancing and worked with us to ensure our unique requests and songs were incorporated! The day of, the band was amazing!!! All of our friends and family have said that Heartbeat is by far the best wedding band they have ever heard. Literally everyone at our wedding (even family members like my uncle who I have never seen dance!) were on the dance floor! We also are so appreciative that the band learned not only our first dance song, but at least 5 other songs that we wanted throughout the evening. And our favorite moment of the night, by far, was when the band played our first dance song for us to practice our choreographed dance while everyone was downstairs at cocktail hour. HIGHLY recommend!!

  • Ariel was awesome! They provided us great music and entertainment for our wedding day. They performed during our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and all were perfect. They have a wide array of songs they can play and had all our guests dancing the whole night. Our first dance was that much more special performed live. Highly recommend!!!

  • We worked with Liz through Ariel Music & Events and the Heartbeat Dance band. From the moment we heard them at one of their showcases, we knew we needed to book them for our wedding! Liz was easy to work with, well organized and accommodating to all our requests, making sure things were exactly the way we wanted. The Heartbeat Dance Band was outstanding!! We made some requests for "must play songs" but otherwise we let them choose their songs and they did not disappoint! They had our guests up and dancing throughout the entire reception tailoring their playlist to the vide of our crowd. Many guests left saying how fantastic the band was. The band members were very professional. Michael (band leader) and Christie (a lead singer & our emcee) helped keep the night going smooth. We are so happy that we had the Heartbeat Dance band as part of our wedding. They helped create such a memorable night that we will never forget! We HIGHLY recommend this band. Thank you Heartbeat!!

  • I went to listen to the group Heartbeat during one of their invitations to check them out at a Greenwich, CT hotel performance. It was excellent and what made me finalize my decision to have them at my daughter's wedding. Knowing how each sang and being able to see the list of songs they were capable of singing made it very easy to make the music at the wedding very personal. Everyone was up dancing all night! Just fantastic!!

  • Everyone knows a good band is crucial to the success of a wedding and I could not say kind enough words to do Ariel Music and Events' justice. From our cocktail hour where we had more of the classics like Frank Sinatra to the last dance where everyone was getting down on the dance floor (literally - I admit my husband did request "Shout") the band was phenomenal. Several guests who are getting married thousands of miles away wanted to see if they could have them! They kept a great energy and are extremely talented. I was especially delighted that even in between sets and during meals when most bands take a break, one of the singers continued to perform beautiful background music for us. Through and through, there's not a single thing I found that could have been improved upon!

  • We worked with Liz at Ariel Music and the Heartbeat Dance Band for our wedding in August of 2016, and couldn’t have been more pleased. Band members performed for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and of course, the party. We received such glowing compliments from attendees of all ages. The packed dance floor was proof enough that all our guests were having a great time. In addition to the music, the Heartbeat team did a tremendous job working with our venue staff to manage the evening. The band managed to both be a highlight of party, and yet, blend in seamlessly. A truly professional outfit – would highly recommend for all your event needs!
