  • Big City Horns! What can I say ... they know how to throw a party! Lead singer and MC Ben Baia was extremely professional throughout the whole wedding planning process, especially when we had to change dates due to COVID. He was the perfect MC for the wedding and the band was absolutely fantastic the entire night! From start to finish, everyone was on the dance floor, thanks to Big City Horns! For the Father/Daughter dance, my dad wanted to surprise me with our song. So he coordinated with Ben, and the way it turned out was so cool. It was a mash-up of Isn't She Lovely by Steve Wonder and Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns N' Roses. It was awesome!! We got our slow dance, which is every girl dreams of, but then we came out swinging with air guitars!! ... Another favorite part of the night was when the horns came out on the dance floor and played in the middle of our guests ! It was so much fun! Again, if you want your wedding guests on the dance floor from start to finish, Big Cit... Read more

  • Big City Horns is an amazing band and a must have for any party or wedding! I cannot say enough positive things about the band and working with Ben. From start to finish Ben and the band worked to give us an experience at our wedding that we will remember forever! For context, we had Big City Horns at our wedding at the end of September 2020, during the pandemic. It was after dancing was banned at weddings in NY state and we wondered if we should even have a band without dancing. I am so happy we chose to move forward with Big City Horns! Even without dancing they kept our guests entertained the whole evening, the set list was amazing, and their energy level was through the roof! I can't tell you how many guests we had that told us this was the "best wedding band they had seen", and that "the band made a no dancing reception a lot of fun". Not only do they sound amazing, but they will bring a great energy whether there is dancing allowed or not. I cannot recommend Big ... Read more

  • I was more than impressed with Big City Horns. Not only did they play fantastic music, but they were very professional and flexible. From the moment I first talked to Ben on the phone, I knew we were going to hire the group for my grandparents 50th anniversary celebration. We were too far away to meet in person, so Ben and I were in contact through phone calls and emails. He was on top of everything and we made a set plan for the celebration weeks in advanced. During the celebration, I had some last minute changes and the group was more than happy to rearrange. Not only was their professionalism on point, but the music they played was fantastic. They had songs for every age group there and each song was played perfectly. The whole group was so into the music and they helped keep everyone dancing all night. After the celebration, my family couldn't stop talking about how amazing the band was. I highly recommend this group for any occasion and we will be hiring them for every event in th... Read more

  • We couldn’t be happier with our experience hiring Big City Horns for our special day. Ben and Maria customized their set to incorporate music that fit our taste and catered to our guests. They knew all of the right questions to ask us to make sure they had a solid game plan from start to finish. We loved that the short break included a live DJ set. We believe we got amazing value for the price. Guests kept telling us that they enjoyed the show the put on just as much as their music. Our dance floor was packed every single song.

  • Big City Horns knows how to put on a show! We were so thrilled that we were able to work with them for our wedding. Their process was very tuned to what we (the bride and groom) wanted for our wedding. A few months prior to our wedding date, they asked us to put together a list of songs/music that we liked. They have a list of songs that they have played before on their website, so we used that and pulled in a few of our own that we would like to hear. We were able to establish what our tastes in music were which guided them to put together a set list that they would play. There was a few songs that we really liked that they hadn't played before - they were able to find arrangements of the songs and get familiar with them before our wedding! All of our guests could not stop raving about Big City Horns after the wedding (in fact they are still raving about how awesome they are!). They are absolutely one of the best if not the best band to book for weddings in upstate NY.

  • Big City Horns was amazing! I would highly recommend this band for anyone who is looking for a band to play at their wedding or event! I was in constant communication with Ben throughout the planning process and I honestly don’t have enough good things to say! He was always beyond friendly, quick to respond, knowledgeable and flexible. We told him our vision and timeline from the beginning and he did everything in his power to ensure it was portrayed how we wanted it. Without my knowledge, my groom even reached out to him to coordinate a special dance between him and his mother and Ben delivered an amazing mix up that made their mother/son dance one to remember! We had the piano/sax duo during cocktail hour and the full 9 piece band for the reception. They were amazingly organized and covered everything between lighting for the dance floor, announcements, dinner music and special dances. AMAZING! When it came to dancing time, the dance floor was immediately crowded and it st... Read more

  • When my husband and I discussed which aspects of our wedding mattered most to us, it came down to photography and a band. We thought back on the best weddings we’ve attended and realized that each one had one thing in common: live music. After reading reviews and reaching out to Big City Horns, the decision to choose them to play at our wedding was a no-brainer. Ben contacted me the same day I sent my inquiry, and within a week, he had spoken to both my husband and I at length about what we wanted the music at our wedding to feel like. Over the following months, we came up with a comprehensive set list that would be suitable for every guest at our wedding. Ben checked in with us each month leading up to the wedding and offered excellent advice and suggestions when we needed them. Prior to the event, Ben coordinated with everyone involved in the reception, and the evening progressed flawlessly at his direction. The full band was fantastic, and the singing was superb. ...

  • I first heard Ben and Big City Horns at a charity event, I was so impressed with the bands performance that when it was time for my son and daughter-in-laws wedding I immediately thought of Big City Horns. Ben was terrific all the way around, he is extremely professional and in constant communication. His suggestions for the timing of various parts of the reception and room layout were super helpful, the bands playlist is huge and they even made an extra effort to learn the special song that we wanted for our mother/son dance that was outside of their normal set list. The reception was in Pittsburgh, so it required a lot of coordination between Ben and the event planner, plus travel considerations for the band. Ben pulled it all off without a hitch, there was nothing that we had to worry about. Beyond all of the pre-performance plans that Ben handled so well, the bands performance made the whole reception unforgettable! Our guests had a phenomenal time and are still talking about the...

  • The best thing we did in planning our daughters wedding was hire Big City Horns. They are energetic and really know how to engage an audience and get a party going. Many of our guests are still talking about the fabulous band we had at our daughters wedding in April. Elaine Ferrara

  • Big City Horns was an amazing addition to our wedding! They helped to make the dance floor come to life. Ben was super accommodating to the requested that we had, and helped to make our day even more special! We would 110% recommend them to future brides and grooms. Live bands verse DJ's make such the difference when it comes to music! Great bunch of people, all with amazing talent! Thank you Big City Horns, you're the best!!
