  • 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!

  • The band was amazing. Our guests cant stop talking about them! Mike and the band crushed it and played songs from motown to alternative music. Robin did a solo version of Zombies by the Cranberries that had people talking about it for a month. The band played the song Sweet lovin by Sigala and it was even better than we could have imagined with the instrumentals and vocals. Every band member was more impressive than the next. Thanks for a great job. We highly recommend the band to make your wedding.

  • We loved working with Cafe Wha - they made everything happen just as we wanted it on the day of our wedding. We can't wait to work with them again next year.

  • We got married at Weylin in Brooklyn and the Cafe Wha? Band came recommended by the venue. We are very glad they made that recommendation. So many of our guests are still talking about how it was the best music/dancing of any wedding wedding they've been to. Highly recommend!

  • In short, if you go with another band you are making a mistake. They were responsive, easy and clear in communication and planning, and ultimately just made it happen. Music quality is incredible and varied.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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'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!

  • 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!

  • Cafe Wha's four-person band was the perfect way for our "micro-wedding" to still feel so fun and special. Kim and the team did a fantastic job of reading the room and playing great hits for cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. From "Georgia on My Mind" to "Can't Stop the Feeling," we loved every song they played.
