  • My wife and I were married and had a reception with 200 guests. We had listened to about 6-8 bands before making a final decision and my wife and I came to a unanimous decision in choosing the Bud Maltin band. There is a tremendous amount of talented musicians especially in the NYC area but we felt that we were in the best and most capable hands working with the Bud Maltin Band. We had 11-12 musicians the day of our wedding which provided continuous music throughout the day. For the ceremony we had a Bud play flute and an electric guitar. It set the tone for the entire ceremony and delivered renditions of the songs that we requested which were recognizable as soft instrumentals but perfectly arranged as to blend into the backdrop. The band does a walk through of the venue before the day of the wedding to ensure that all of the logistics are accounted for. Bud and his manager Bill worked with the venue to organize a time without us (as we were very busy and weren't required to wal... Read more

  • Hiring Bud Maltin Metropoiltan Music was one of the best decisions my husband and I made. We loved the option of having a live band with live musicians AND a terrific DJ. Talk about a winning combination! We were able to have the DJ play specific songs we loved (with original/specific artists) and also had the benefit of also offering amazing live music to fill the ballroom at our reception. Bill Galbo (business manager) and Bud Maltin are both incredibly personable and always made my husband and me feel like our preferences were being heard. They are a class act. I cannot recommend them more highly.

  • I only have wonderful words to describe this company and their DJ who worked at my sons wedding celebration. They were easy to work with, will go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect and the DJ, Danny, did a great job getting everyone dancing throughout the night. You won't go wrong hiring this company for your music needs.

  • Bud and Arianna came DJed/ played live music for our wedding back in November 2019. They made our party- THE Party! Working with Bud and Bill was calming and quick. I did not stress out one bit. The music they played was a lot of what we requested and the live music was unbelievable. Bud played the sax and flute and it was awesome. Arianna has an amazing voice and she sang so many awesome songs during dinner. We kept looking at her and giving her a thumbs up because everything was so great that she sang. My wife and I are so pleased with you guys! Thank you for making our day so special and giving us the time of our lives. THANK YOU!!! 😊😊

  • After shopping around and copious research, we chose Bud Maltin Metropolitan Group and to say the least - they DID NOT disappoint! Our process began with hearing some of the band perform live in a Midtown Manhattan studio. What we saw then was what we got on our wedding day. Professionalism, talent, energy, and a natural harmony with the crowd and the entire experience. All aspects, discussed and implied, went off without a hitch. From the ceremony music, featuring a violinist and keyboardist duo pulling off our non-traditional processional music, to ending the night with our specific request (including the obviously necessary "I Want it That Way" by The Backstreet Boys :), it goes without saying that guests and staff alike shared nothing but positive feedback. Let's not forget a fun and relaxing cocktail hour featuring the smooth sounds of the acoustic guitar, followed by the 4-hour reception with our 7-piece band and that unforgettable whirlwind of a Hora to start off the party.

  • Working with the Bud Maltin Band was absolutely incredible! They provided music for our wedding - reception, cocktail hour, and reception… All of which were a dream. They sounded great, and really set The tone for a fantasy night. We were really nervous to hire a band, because we had really specific music in mind. My husband’s side of the family is Indian, and more on the young side, while my family is American and a bit older. We wanted music that would appeal to both, but were convinced that a band who could do it all was going to be impossible to find. But then we found Bud Maltin. With their band/DJ hybrid combination, they were able to not only play all the songs that you wanted to meet both criteria, but also songs that felt personally significant to my husband and I. They even learned some special Hindi songs we requested! They were incredibly professional, responsive, warm and easy to work with. Their sound is unbeatable. I’m already working with them on another... Read more

  • My husband and I got married on July 13, 2019 at the Village Club at Lake Success. While planning our wedding, we knew that we wanted to have a band that also had the capacity to play music like a DJ. Bud and his team were the perfect fit. Working with Bud and Bill made the entire process so easy. They know so much about music, and they are incredibly professional. Bud was so patient and kind as we spoke on the phone multiple times to ensure that the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception music was exactly what we wanted. We had a talented pianist play during the ceremony and cocktail hour. We ultimately had a nine piece band play at the reception. All of the music was phenomenal. In the two weeks since our wedding, I have had many many people tell me how impressed they were with the band. I am so happy that they were the ones to play at our wedding. I highly recommend Bud Maltin Metropolitan Music for any event with music, especially a wedding.

  • We hired Bud Maltin Band for our wedding in July at the Boathouse and they were absolutely amazing. Everyone raved about the band after our wedding and said it was one of the best they'd heard at a wedding! They offer a great combo of live musicians and DJ to supplement, so you have all the perks of having a live band but get to hear everything you want! We loved working with both Bud and Bill, they were very laid back but professional and timely for everything. Would highly recommend to any NYC couple looking for affordable live music option without sacrificing high quality!!

  • I don't even know where to begin with how thrilled we were in hiring Bud Maltin Music! From the beginning of the process till the end of our wedding night, they were extremely professional and really fun to work with! Not only did they listen and react to the tone and type of music my wife and I wanted, but they were also there to help guide us through what made sense given our guest list. They set up multiple calls to help us determine the best music for each piece of the night and let us have the flexibility we needed. And oh yeah, they also can freaking play like no other! We had a band + dj combo and it worked out perfect for us. A lot of people say on your wedding night you won't remember a lot of the music, but Bud's band was so great that we are still talking about them today! We cannot recommend them enough and we are letting all of our friends and family know they are a must-hire for any of their upcoming weddings.

  • Bud Maltin, the band, and Bill Galbo were all great. They were extremely professional and really completed the wedding. The difference between a DJ and a live band was a huge difference in the entertainment and everyone from the old folks to the teenagers were having a great time and complimented the band.

  • Where to begin... Bud Maltin Music truly is a class act who listens to what you want and goes above and beyond when it comes to the actual day of. Their musicians and artists are phenomenal and know what they are doing. They are energetic and get the crowd going and make you want to get up and dance. The voices.... all I can say is WOW. They are on another level. I have worked with Bud Maltin and Metropolitan Music for YEARS and they are the ONLY company I now go to when I need live music or a DJ. We recently just had them at our Wedding Celebration and they worked with us - played the music we asked, made suggestions, and made our night spectacular. They have options that many other bands do not offer- we even had someone taking pics at the wedding and putting them up in real time for guests to see. My best friend is also getting married and after seeing them at my wedding said I don't even have to look further as they are EXACTLY what we want. If that doesn't say someth... Read more

  • We were incredibly impressed with Bud Maltin Metropolitan Music. Each band member was talented and the overall sound was fantastic. Our guests were dancing all night and we received many comments about how great the band was. In terms of planning, the band was very responsive and also willing to accomodate any request. We also relied on their expertise in choosing the appropriate instruments for our ceremony and they nailed it. I would encourage any friends getting married to use the band!

  • I have been a fan of Bud Maltin/Metropolitan Music for many years. I have engaged his extremely talented musicians for many charity events as well as referred them to personal friends. I was thrilled beyond thrilled to have them play at our daughter's wedding this past November. The ceremony music was included and it was perfect. Most of our guests (multi-generations) did not stay in their seats but rushed to the dance floor and danced the night away. We are still receiving wonderful compliments about our event; the best musicians make the BEST party!
