  • Cafe Wha was awesome. They played at my son's wedding and had everyone dancing the entire evening. They are so talented. I would highly recommend them! Everyone was raving about how great the band was (and how sore their feet were from dancing so much)!!! 10 stars if I could:)

  • Ben, Hap and the Cafe Wha? team are AMAZING. We worked with them on our organization's annual Gala and survey after survey listed them as *THE* highlight of the evening - and I have to agree! As an event planner, I can assuredly say that this team is PROFESSIONAL and INCREDIBLE.

  • Cafe Wha is an incredibly talented band. They had our guests on the dance floor all evening. Even at the end of a Sunday night party, when most people leave early, this band had the dance floor full!

  • Cafe Wha? is the absolute BEST!! We booked our wedding around their availability after that played my brother’s wedding. From working with Hap for booking, through meeting your band leader and the day of the event this team is made up of pros. Go to the cafe wha in New York and see this group and you will look nowhere else. The day after our wedding every single guest we saw told us how blown away they were by the band. Thanks for making our day PERFECT!!

  • My husband and I live in the City and have been going to Cafe Wha for years to hear the house band play. So when we decided to get married, we didn't think twice: we HAD to have Cafe Wha play our wedding. We were so adamant that we actually coordinated our wedding date based on their availability. So book ASAP! They are not your typical 'wedding' band. They are exceptional on every level. All of their musicians play to the highest level and put on a SHOW. They were the highlight of our wedding and brought the party all.night.long. Our guests still cannot stop talking about their off-the-charts performance they put on, how spectacular the music was, and I heard 'Best Band Ever' too many times to count. Shout out to Hap for making it happen and the band:  Ben, Mike Davis, Kim, Amadou, and Robin for absolutely rocking it. We wish we could plan another party to have them play again!

  • I've been coming to Cafe Wha? for YEARS and just got married last Saturday and had Cafe Wha as our wedding band. It was single handedly the MOST amazing music, voices, instruments etc. I've ever heard. Kim, Hap and the rest of the team made all of our dreams come true and played their hearts out. Every single person was on the dance floor the ENTIRE night. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding band. THANK YOU!

  • The band was playing as the guests arrived . Everyone went directly to the dance floor, ignoring their table assignments, as the band was already rocking the house ! Everyone was blown away by how great these musicians are. The energy and great vibes were there from the very start and never stopped. The unbelievably perfect band to rock our event. This is the band you want. Period. Many thanks to all of the Cafe Wha? family for making our daughters wedding a complete success !!!

  • I have been going to Cafe Wha every year since my 16th birthday, so when we got engaged we practically planned our wedding around the band’s availability. They did not disappoint. Hap and Ben were amazing throughout the planning process, and the band absolutely killed it. They were out on the dance floor with our guests- something I really never see other bands do. Our guests are still raving about their performance. They definitely aren’t the cheapest but you really do get what you pay for!

  • When picking vendors for our wedding, the band was a top priority. We wanted everyone dancing all night and wanted music that appealed to us and our friends (late twenties) and to our older family members as well. Cafe Wha killed it. Our guests are still talking about how good the band was a month later. There was never a lull in the night. Every single musician is amazingly talented and brought so much energy to our wedding night. They are seriously unlike any other elite wedding band out there. Just to give you a sense of how epic they were - at midnight, when the reception ended, the entire 240 person room started chanting "one more song, one more song." And of course, they delivered! I could not recommend Cafe Wha more. Ben and Hap were so easy to work with, and made planning fun and seamless. They are 100% worth the price and more.

  • The Cafe Wha? band are truly the best at what they do. Since they spend so much time in the Cafe Wha? club, there is nobody better at reading a room, playing to that crowd, and bringing the party to life. They play all genres, create epic mashups, and are just generally great musicians. Every member of the band is a total professional. Quite literally every guest at my party came up to me at some point during or after our wedding to tell me it was the best wedding band they'd ever seen. They're not inexpensive, but they are also not even close to the priciest, so you definitely get your money's worth. Not to mention the whole process of working with hem was easy, seamless and very professional. Truly can't say enough good things about my experience with them.

  • Cafe Wha!!!.... Everyone at the wedding could not stop talking about the band! "Where did you find this band? Who is this band?" We asked the same thing the first time we saw Cafe Wah at a wedding many years ago- way before we were even engaged. But one thing we knew was that whenever the time came we would be using Cafe Wah. Cafe Wah's performance is like going to a concert. They can play any song and make it their own and in a way you've never heard before. They were just amazing to work with and took our vision and made it come to life. They cater to the crowd and are the absolute best around. They made our wedding!

  • Cafe Wha is an amazing band. Ive followed them for years after moving to NYC and when my organization decided they wanted a band at our annual gala, I rallied hard to get Cafe Wha there and it was by far the best use of our budget. This band is amazing. They know how to read a crowd and they know how to make the event even more special. If you are going to have entertainment at your wedding or event, this is the band that will appeal to everyone in your crowd and that is priceless! Expect a lot of dancing and a ton of compliments from your guests after a night of entertainment from the Cafe Wha Band!!
