  • 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.

  • 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 !!!

  • Cafe Wha is unbelievable. They had everyone on the dance floor the entire night at our wedding. All of our guests have been raving about them for weeks. They also did an amazing job with our ceremony music. Book them!

  • 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!!

  • I hired 3 pieces from the Cafe Wha? Band (Kim, Mike and Ben) to serenade my wife and I at a restaurant for our 25th anniversary celebration. They were FANTASTIC ! They certainly left us with a memory that we will cherish for a lifetime. And the hiring, planning, preparation, etc. could not have gone any better as well. It was top-notch--from start to finish.

  • The Cafe Wha? band delivered a tremendous performance at our wedding at the Bowery Hotel. In terms of song selection, we largely deferred to the band’s discretion, and they did not disappoint. They managed to please all demographics and kept the dance floor packed throughout the night. In addition to being very easy to work with, there are a couple of factors that we thought differentiated the band from others we considered. First, they played continuously, without breaks, for the entire night. Second, you can see the band perform at the club in Greenwich Village before making your wedding band selection, which we did. Given the importance of choosing a wedding band, we found it surprising how few bands we could see perform live. Once we saw the band in person, we immediately chose them for our wedding. It was the best decision we could have made!

  • AMAZING performance from the Cafe Wha band at our wedding! They did an excellent job of reading the crowd and playing a wide genre of music, which kept the dance floor packed all night. Ben was very helpful throughout the entire process, he was patient with all of our questions and quick to answer us. The entire team did not disappoint. Music was really important to us and the band was AMAZING. Our guests are still talking about what an unbelievable job they did. Would highly recommend to anyone! Thank you to the entire Cafe Wha team!

  • We had the Cafe Wha Band play our wedding on New Year's Eve in New York City. They were absolutely incredible. Our wedding had a lot of moving parts and various demands over the course of the night and they were more than accommodating. At our reception, the band infused the room with energy to keep us dancing past midnight all the way until 2AM. They were so good at reading the room for what it needed, whether it be something more upbeat or a chance to slow things down. Wedding guests of all ages were dancing and having a great time well into the late hours of the night. I cannot keep track of how many people told us how much they LOVED the band. Make sure to check them play at Cafe Wha in the Village to get a feel for what they are all about. You will not be disappointed.
