  • Excellent band and most pleasant to work with from the planning stage to the wedding night. We could not have asked for a better entertainment group for our once-in-a-lifetime family event. We highly recommend the Ariel Music Group.

  • Heartbeat Dance Band far surpassed even our wildest expectations on our wedding day! They played from 9pm-1am and the dance floor was packed for four hours straight! They are energetic, fun, and sound amazing. Their repertoire is great, but they will also learn a few extra songs if needed. Your guests will rave about the music if you hire Heartbeat Dance Band for your event.

  • Ariel was amazing from start to finish! During our planning process, Ariel accommodated all of our needs! They learned several songs that were special to us, even though they were not on their set list. Prior to the wedding, Liz called me and chatted for over an hour just to make sure the day would go perfectly. She even texted me early in the morning on our wedding day to wish us the best. Ariel had two musicians preform during our cocktail hour. They set the mood and let our guests know that they were in for a treat. As the night progressed, Ariel introduced our wedding party and us with high energy and really got the party started! They played all of our requests throughout the night and followed the timeline we had set. The mix of slow and fast songs kept the party going. The dance floor was packed all night because the band was so much fun. They fulfilled our guests requests for songs, too. Weeks later, guests are still talking about how amazing our band was! Thank yo... Read more

  • Our wedding literally would not have been the same upbeat, never-want-to-leave party atmosphere that it was without Ariel. We had an 8-piece band and about 200 guests, and their sound and talent was absolute perfection. All of the singers sound identical to the musicians they’re covering, but the true talent of this band is their ability to read the crowd and play songs in an order that make guests never leave the dance floor. At one point, they had to stop playing because entrees had been served and no one cared! I’ve been to many weddings with GREAT bands – perfect voices and harmonizing sounds, but as I mentioned, Ariel has a knack for unexpected song selections that keep people on the dance floor all night. All that aside, Liz is a true joy to work with and their pricing is extremely reasonable for the Tri-state area based on the homework I did prior to hiring them. Five stars!

  • My husband and I always have good times at weddings that have good music, so we prioritized music when planning for our own wedding to make it unforgettable. After contacting various music vendors, only Heartbeat Dance Band invited us to a live performance so that we could make our final decision without undue pressure. We were blown away when we did see, hear, and dance to them and booked HBDB right after. Though our wedding was almost a year away after booking with Heartbeat, we were constantly in touch with the band manager who was very patient and responsive with our questions and requests, accommodating us and making the groom and me feel so assured that we were in good hands. As the wedding date drew nearer, I had a rather picky selection of songs to be played and in particular, a song in Korean to be played as a surprise for my grandmother. The manager handled these rather particular requests in stride, and needless to say, when the band played the surprise song, all our guests ... Read more

  • My husband and I just tied the knot May 16th at a country club outside of NYC, and the event was phenomenal, due largely to Team Ariel. They were absolutely exceptional! I cannot express our appreciation and gratitude not only for their professionalism and organization leading up to the event, but their amazing vocals and ability to play new hits as well as your typical crowd pleasers all night long. We felt comfortable and confident the entire night, knowing Ariel was in charge. They kept our guests on their feet throughout the evening. The dance floor was PACKED, which is a clear indicator of success in my book. Our guests had the time of their lives because of Ariel's talent and preparation. We owe it to Ariel for providing an amazing evening and gave us the party we were desperately hoping for. It truly was a night to remember. They were epic and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a fabulous band. Ariel exceeded all expectations and just blew us away. I can't thank... Read more

  • We cannot thank the Heartbeat Dance Band enough for making our wedding so spectacular! We had the BEST NIGHT of our lives and we're so honored to have shared it with such an amazing group of musicians! You all are such wonderful people and we love you all!!! This band is PHENOMENAL! Their dedication and passion for what they do radiates from each and every member. They are exceptionally talented and such wonderful people to work with. Every step of the planning process seemed so effortlessly easy and it was all due to the commitment they have to their clients and to their work. There is NO other band that can compare! WE LOVE HEARTBEAT DANCE BAND!!!!!

  • Amazing!!!! Ariel truly exceeded our expectations. They were so accommodating and made sure the reception went exactly how we wanted. They kept people dancing and made sure to work the crowd in the most perfect way. The music wasn't too loud during dinner service and the variety they played was enjoyed by all of our guests. Our guests loved them so much, they chanted for one more song at the end of the night and the band did it!! People continue to comment how amazing Ariel was. Thank you!!!!!

  • I highly recommend Ariel Entertainment for your wedding. Their talent is outstanding, their set list is extensive and flexible, and they know how to get people on the dance floor and keep them there all night! Great music makes for a memorable occasion and you just can't go wrong with Ariel. We have hired them twice now for both our sons' weddings (one in CT, one in NY) and friends in Boston engaged Ariel for their son's wedding having experienced Ariel's wonderful entertainment at our first event. I'd encourage anyone looking for a very special wedding band to check out Ariel. You'll be so glad you did,

  • Liz from Ariel Music was a pleasure to deal with and our band, TNT, surpassed our expectations. They had our guests from young to old on their feet the whole time. We are still getting compliments months out! They really helped make our reception a memorable fun filled celebration.

  • AMAZING BAND! Almost every guest I spoke to talked about how amazing the band was. Barbara was extremely organized and talked through a full list of songs we liked and didn't like to make sure the bride and groom were happy with the set list. They even let my brother-in-laws play trumpet with them to introduce the first dance song! They were so flexible and I feel bad that I didn't get to speak with them afterwards to say thank you - but I hope this review makes up for that :) Absolutely would recommend them - and also would definitely tell other couples to add on the saxophone - made SUCH a great difference. Well worth the money!

    responded with the following comments.

    It sure does!!! Thank you Allison!! Your wedding was amazing and your family (especially your Dad!) was so much fun!! All the Best! Barbara

  • The band representative did respond to any questions we had promptly. We spoke to the band several times before the wedding to go over certain things, the flow of the night, song choices, etc. The day of the wedding the band did mess up on a few things. One of the band members was rude to guests and was not professional at a certain point in the wedding. For the price paid, I think we expected a little more. Overall the sound of the band was nice.
