  • 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!

  • Almost a year later and my wife and I still hear at every family holiday party how good our wedding band was. Ariel made our day so much fun and were incredibly accommodating. We are so thankful that we stumbled upon them on this website. The dance floor was never empty and they played EVERY single song that we had asked for. I would highly recommend this band to anyone who is considering booking them for their event. 100% worth it and will seriously be one of the highlights of your wedding.

    Thanks for remembering the fun and giving us a review almost a year past your wedding date! We are thrilled with how happy you were with our band, Ariel!

  • Ariel Music was wonderful. We booked them for our July 2016 wedding at The Manor in West Orange, NJ and received so many compliments throughout the event and weeks after. We began working with the band manager, Elizabeth, about eight months before the wedding. My husband and I met while living in New Orleans, and we wanted a band that was versatile enough to play some New Orleans-style music. Ariel did not disappoint. Due to the very skilled and diverse make-up of the band,one band member had been a part of a New Orleans-style band in the past, and was instrumental in having the band learn some new songs for their repertoire. Music was a very important part of the wedding, and the band incorporated and worked with our particular choices. They adhered to the "do not play" list and I felt that they really understood my musical preferences. They also learned a song for my first dance with my husband, and played it exactly like the recording, which helped with our choreographed da... Read more

  • Amazing talent, incredible customer service and adaptability and overall an awesome group of people to work with. Perhaps the greatest compliment we received at our May wedding was how fun the band was and how entertaining the room constantly was!

  • We had Ariel at our wedding last weekend and they were a blast. Their sound and music was strong and energetic. Their staff was professional. Their responsiveness from inquiry to booking to day of the wedding was exceptional. We had some weird song loop requests and they accommodated everything. They also brought a DJ to fill in some of the music the band couldn't do and they alternated really beautifully. I would recommend this band to any and all brides/grooms wishing to have a live band at their wedding. Thanks for making our day so special :)

  • Having been in the music business for over 20 yrs,I know how difficult it is handle all the little details that go into making a wedding work. The Ariel team was very helpfull from the beginning of the process right up to last minute changes the day before the event. Our family was thrilled wih the service we got. The band was amazing , the Mc was on point and everything flowed exquisitely. The highlight of the night was when I danced with my daughter to "I Hope You Dance".The band and the vocalist nailed it. Song choices kept the dance floor filled all night! Highly Recommended!!

  • My husband and I had hired this band to play at our wedding in the Fall of 2015. They were incredible. Hands-down, amazing. We heard the band audition a year prior to our wedding and knew immediately they were for us. The band is lively, has great energy, and an awesome variety of songs. They worked with us to provide a very customized introduction at our wedding and nailed it with out any issues. All of the guests at our wedding were on the dance floor almost the entire night because of the band; people danced the night away and had so many compliments of them. We would highly recommend this band for anyone looking for a sensational band that will get the audience involved, keep people dancing, and work with you to play all of your favorite music.

  • Ariel music and events was amazing to work with! They provided beautiful ceremony and fun reception music for our September wedding in Connecticut. The band manager, Elizabeth Greene, was extremely helpful with our music selection and organizing logistics. She was also very flexible, and generously arranged for us to have a sound system set up for our outdoor ceremony the day before our wedding. The musicians are all extremely talented, and we received many compliments from our guests. Everyone had so much fun dancing the night away at our wedding! We would highly recommend Ariel to anyone in need of an amazingly talented band!

  • Heartbeat Dance Band did a great job, period! My wife and I have a very busy work schedule, so it was tough for us to make it to one of the band's showcases, but luckily for us they had more than one showcase in a reasonable amount of time from one another. When we finally were able to see them play, we knew right away we wanted to lock them up ASAP especially after looking at their awesome and extensive song list! They do a great job of keeping it up to date with the most current songs, and of course with classic wedding songs. As the wedding approached closer, Heartbeat was very thorough and wanted to make sure your wedding party was updated and in their correct order of appearance. We even had last minute changes to the introductions, but Heartbeat totally accommodated us and even learned new songs for our wedding! Moreover, we had a special request for the band to slow down our first dance song ("Everything" by Michel Buble), which of course they did and they killed it! I h... Read more

  • I cannot say enough about this band! Professional, entertaining, and 100% First Class all the way. They were upbeat and an absolute pleasure to work with. Elizabeth accommodated every need and request that we had, and made us feel very comfortable about how the evening would progress. Their extensive song list was everything that we had hoped for, one great tune after the next after the next. From classic oldies of Motown, to the current hits of today, they know how to read the crowd and keep everyone entertained. The only downside was not having a big enough dance floor!! They got everyone up on their feet and nobody wanted to sit down. They are worth EVERY PENNY! All the guests kept talking about after the wedding was over was "Where did you get that band?!" So happy to have found them and want to throw another party just so they can come and play!!

  • We definitely recommend Ariel Music and Events! We used them for our October 2015 wedding. They were fantastic to work with--Liz worked with us to get us the specific intros we wanted to use and all the music we wanted to be played. At the reception, Frank always approached me as the bride to make sure whatever the crazy guests were asking him was okay with me (making announcements, etc.)--loved that! We had tons of compliments from all our guests. I really love how each band member has such a unique sound that they can literally play anything and it sounds just like the real song--from pop music to Bruce Springsteen to Frank Sinatra. WONDERFUL and cant wait to see our video and hear it all over again :) :)

  • Ariel was one of the best wedding decisions we made! They kept all 200 guests, energized, dancing, and happy the whole night. We had an 8-piece band and their talent and sound was perfect. They played all styles of music and really drew everyone of all ages out to the dance floor. People kept coming up to my husband and I saying how great the band sounded and how much fun they were having. Liz, was also a pleasure to work with and made sure all of our needs were met leading up to the day. Such a great band for a great price!
