  • There is simply no better band than Cafe Wha? Aside from their unrivaled performance, they were so pleasant to deal with - put together an amazing set list with minimal input from us, and fed off the energy of our wedding. Couldn't be happier with having them be part of our wedding!

  • This band was exceptionally good and played at my daughter's outdoor wedding. People did not stop dancing the entire night. They were engaging, professional and played all night long. If they took breaks, only a few members left while everyone else continued to play. It was very evident that these band members love what they do. The made my daughter's wedding extra special. I highly recommend Cafe Wha!!!

  • The band was f&#!'ing awesome. Easy to work with, professional, and most importantly, they ROCK. Unlike most wedding bands, these guys play together most night so they're in synch and understand crowds. Highly, highly recommended!

  • BEST BAND EVER! Music was the #1 priority for me and my husband in planning our day. We are both very critical and when we heard Cafe Wha, all we wanted was them for our wedding. The team, Hap and Ben were incredible and so helpful. The band was OUTSTANDING where our guests still ask us how we found and talk about the party. I can't recommend Cafe Wha enough - not one person sat down and everyone was dancing throughout the entire night. Absolutely watch these guys perform. You are in good hands I promise!

  • So much cooler and more fun than traditional wedding bands. Cafe Wha knows how to read a room, how to adapt the flow of the night to match the crowd and the different events and how to really rock a fun party! They are super responsive, great communicators, and the most fun band we've ever boogied with (not to mention ridiculously talented).

  • I really don't think we could have hired a better band than Cafe Wha for our black tie wedding on November 5. We saw them perform at the actual Cafe Wha last year and knew they would be a blast for the event -- and we were absolutely right! Aaron, the band leader, and Hap, the band manager, were a pleasure and easy to work with from start to finish. They listened carefully to our vision for the evening and performed flawlessly. We hired them as a ten piece band after having looked at a few other options. Budget-wise, they were an amazing value. They played a mix of Motown, oldies, rock and pop that struck all of the right notes with the crowd. Their keyboard player also played the venue's grand piano during cocktail hour. Many of our guests told us how great the music was, some noting that it was the best wedding band they had heard. They kept the dance floor packed at the right times and during our seated courses they continued to play soft music -- no iPod breaks or periods of silenc... Read more

  • I had the Cafe Wha? Band at my wedding in Westchester in September and it was one of the best wedding related decisions we made. We went to the club ahead of time and saw the band and were blown away by how talented they were. We couldn't believe that such an amazing band actually did weddings! They are the complete opposite of the cliche wedding band, and were exactly what we wanted. Hap, who handles the coordination, was absolutely wonderful to work with; he always responded to my questions timely and anything we requested he made happen (including having the band learn some country songs !). I also spoke with Kim, the band leader, to hammer out logistics and the flow for the day of and she was so nice to talk to and made me feel so at ease with how the day would go. At the wedding, the band absolutely killed it! They created such a fun party atmosphere and the selection of songs had people of all ages on the dance floor all night. During the wedding and in the days after we got so m... Read more

  • We can’t get enough of Café Wha! My husband and I visited Café Wha in Greenwich Village around 5 years ago on a trip to NYC after it came highly recommended from a friend for a fun night out. We decided to plan our Wedding in NYC and immediately after booking our venue, secured Café Wha, as good music was so essential to creating a fun and memorable Wedding reception. Café Wha did not disappoint! From booking, to discussing song selections, to delivery on the evening of our Wedding, Café Wha was exceptional. These are insanely talented artists who kept our guests dancing on the dance floor and singing along all night to every genre imaginable. Our guests are still raving about the band! It was worth every penny.

  • Absolutely amazing! Hap & the band was professional and responsive. They played at my cousins wedding and I had to have them at mine. All of my guests were raving about them. They are not your average wedding band, because they are a REAL band. Did not regret splurging for a band instead of a DJ at all, worth every penny. I will recommend Cafe Wha to all of my friends/family and everyone reading this. Thank you Cafe Wha for making my wedding amazing and I look forward to seeing you guys again. :)

  • This band CRUSHED it for us. we could not have asked for more. We opted for the 9 piece band, with horns, and it did not disappoint. My guest list was filled with veterans of many New Orleans jazz fests, and probably 50,000 live shows, and people raved "best wedding band ever", because they are NOT a wedding band, they are a fine tuned band that delivers the goods. Hap manages like a pro as well, could not have been and easier process

  • Cafe wha made our wedding an incredible experience for not just us, but for all of our guests! We are still getting phone calls saying that the band was the best they have ever heard and that the event was the best they have ever been too! We can't thank Cafe Wha enough for making our event truly unforgettable!!!

  • We recently used the Cafe Wha? House Band for our wedding. Not only was the band very easy to communicate with (even through two venue changes), but they completely made the party. Every person at our wedding was on the dance floor all night, raving about the band. They offered a variety of types of music and were able to cater to our requests. They offered to learn any songs we wanted them to play. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone use this band for any occasion. They will not disappoint, and your affair will be the best one any of your guests have been to all because of the band alone.

  • Let me begin by saying that cafe Wha killed it! Everyone was talking about how amazing our band was and this is what we wanted to hear! We loved that the band was able to play almost any request we had, including our Spanish songs. ( Franco was unbelievable)Everything from our first dance, to our mother/ father dance was simply flawless. Hap was so nice and responsive to any questions or concerns we had, highly recommend staying in touch with him throughout the process.
