  • Cryin' Out Loud was exactly the band we were looking for. They had great energy and had us dancing all night long. We worked with them on a Blues Brothers themed bridal party entrance which was so much fun and set the tone for the whole night. Musically, they are a band with deep range of talent; they brought 8 musicians and had 4 singers with great voices. All night long, my family and friends commented on how good they were. If you are looking for a high energy band that will keep everyone dancing all night, this is your band. The band leader, Greg, is really attentive and easy to work with. He said that the secret to their success is that they have been playing together for years, unlike other bands who change members for every show. Despite being a large band, they were lower price than many others that we talked with. Thanks Greg and Cryin Out Loud for making our wedding night perfect.

  • We have never attended a wedding with a band prior to our own and we were a little hesitant at first and a little worried that a lot of our guests would not be interested in dancing but Cryin Out Loud had EVERYONE on the dance floor . As soon as they started playing , everyone was dancing , even our 90 year old grandparents , and the people that normally don’t dance! The energy was amazing and everyone had the BEST time and we received a ton of compliments ! They were very easy to work with , we did not have a lot of requests and we just let them do their thing and we were not disappointed ! Cryin Out Loud made our wedding the most fun , memorable and amazing night and we couldn’t be happier!

  • We cannot put into words how thankful we are that Cryin' Out Loud was our wedding band. From when we first booked them to our wedding day, they were so easy to work with and made us so excited for the big day. We had read so many glowing reviews about this band and how every single person was out there dancing all night long. They are absolutely on point, they had every single person out on the dance floor dancing even before we started having dinner! There playlist was perfect and they knew exactly how to get the crowd up and moving. Their sound and singing was also incredible, the videos online don't even do them justice. They were all so kind and sweet as well and Gregg was also an excellent MC that helped run the night smoothly from the cocktail hour, to first dances, speeches and even provided information about the after party to our guests. We have received so many comments by our friends, parents, aunts/uncles, great aunts/uncles, cousins, and grandparents about how great the ba... Read more

  • COL performed at our wedding 8/31/19 in Lake George. They were accommodating with last minute ceremony requests/changes and easy to work with. Everything went flawlessly. They went above and beyond the duties of a band to coordinate introductions and make everyone feel calm and excited. When it was time to do their thing for the reception- I have never been to a more fun dance party. There was something for everyone and the dance floor was always packed. I've already had numerous engaged friends ask about them because our wedding was such a good time. If you want to have fun at your own wedding/event - HIRE THEM!

  • When beginning to plan my wedding, I was given one piece of advice that stuck in my head- to hire a band instead of a DJ. And MAN, I am so glad that is just what I did. I am even more glad that we found COL! Gregg was very easy to talk to, even took a minute at one of his shows to say hello to us. When we went to watch them for the first time we knew they were the right band for us. High energy and just fun! When we told Gregg our thoughts about having both my husband and brother play a song with the band he didn't hesitate at all. He was so excited about it, which made us even more excited. Those moments during our wedding night absolutely exceeded our expectations. Adam was only supposed to play one song and ended up playing TWO. Then when my brother was playing You Shook Me All Night Long, Gregg found me and asked if I wanted to sing! It was SO amazing (totally out of my comfort zone) but Danielle and the whole band helped me to be comfortable up there! This is a night we wi... Read more

  • Overall my experience with crying out loud exceeded my expectations. Everything went perfectly. They literally just show up and know exactly what to do. The music choice was spot on, it got everyone up and dancing all night. Everyone at the wedding loved them, and so did we. It couldn’t have gone better.

  • It was an absolute joy to work with Gregg and the team, from start to finish. On the day, these guys absolutely rocked it. They helped make our special day even more perfect, and our guests have been raving about how incredible their performance. The range of their music, the quality of each individual performer and the collective unit just blew us all away. I cannot recommend Cryin' Out Loud enough!

  • Simply put, Cryin' Out Loud was outstanding. We could not have asked for more from them. Leading up to our wedding, we always received quick and professional responses whenever we had questions. At our reception, the dance floor was packed the entire night and we received countless comments about how great the band was. One of the highlights of the reception was when COL let us (the bride and groom) up on stage to sing along with them. If you book Cryin' Out Loud you will not be disappointed!

  • If we could give COL higher than 5 stars we would. They are absolutely unbelievable. The whole process from beginning to end was professional. I've been in contact with COL for over 2 years during our engagement and they always responded quickly and made us feel like our wedding was always a priority to them. Not to mention they had every single person in our 200+ wedding out and on the dance floor for the entire night! Tearing it up !!! Do not hesitate to book this band-they will make your whole entire party!!! We wish we could relive the night over and over again with them !

  • Crying out loud is the wedding band to hire! If you looking for a band that is perfectly rehearsed, plays music that will appeal to every age group, and brings a concert performance...hire COL!! The band is more than music. The professionalism of the band members is 1st class. The responsiveness of the business is immediate. I’m a professional musician and have played at more than 500 weddings with various wedding bands. I know a good wedding band. Cryin out loud is a Great wedding band!!

  • This band is a MUST HAVE for your special day! The whole evening, the band had an energy level above expectation. From the first song until the last of the evening, the dance floor was filled with everyone dancing the night away. Both Gregg and Danielle have amazing voices, and the instruments were on point all night! The song my wife and I requested for the first dance, Cryin’ Out Loud learned for us and it was performed flawlessly! Many thanks to the band for working with us coordinating a song list, introductions and keeping us on track leading up to our wedding day. The sound, lighting and professionalism are fantastic. We received so many complements on Cryin’ Out Loud’s performance. If you are lucky enough to book this band, you will see what I am talking about. Many thanks for making our night so much fun!

  • One of our top priorities in wedding planning was creating a dance floor that our guests wouldn't want to leave. Cryin' Out Loud did just that! Working with Gregg was great from Day 1. The band learned our requested song and crushed it, provided the energy that we knew could never be replicated by a DJ or even a different band, and they play so many hit songs and wedding classics so well that everyone is singing along the whole night. After the wedding, we were bombarded with comments by our guests about how much they loved Cryin' Out Loud. We could not have asked for a better band at our wedding; we can't stop re-playing the dance floor in our heads. You cannot go wrong by choosing this great group!

    Thank You for your kindness Meaghan and Dan !

  • This band was incredible! They brought the house down for our first dance and tears to everyone's eyes by learning to play obscure father/daughter and mother/groom renditions. They were super interactive with the guests, played a great variety of oldies and modern music. I have several professional musicians in my family and when 4 of them separately said to me "that band was fantastic" you know they are the real deal. Very worth the price. They brought the party from the moment my wife and I were introduced for the first time and they played The Blues Brothers theme song to our surprise. Would highly recommend.
