  • We booked Crossing Midnight for our wedding this December last August, and we have been so thankful we made this decision every day since! We booked the band the day after seeing them live because they absolutely blew us away. Not only were they so much fun, but we also got to see Rudy sing Happy Birthday to his grandmother! Rudy and Genesis have been wonderful and care about all of their couples whether their wedding is two months away or more than a year away. They are so responsive and are always offering their support and to help answer any questions. We love watching their Instagram stories with recent weddings and to see how thankful and happy all of their couples are. We cannot wait to have Crossing Midnight at our wedding to help us ring in the new year! We've found they are truly one-of-a-kind and feel so lucky to have booked them so early.

    Lara, Thank you so much for this review, it truly means a lot to us! We can’t wait to celebrate you & Daryn on New Year’s Eve. It’s going to be such a special night and we’re going to have a blast! 🎉 -Genesis

  • We booked with Rudy and Crossing Midnight Entertainment over two years out for our wedding. We had a stringed duo (cello and violin) for the ceremony, a pianist for cocktail hour, and a DJ for the reception, along with the photobooth being provided by Rudy and his team. Rudy went above and beyond for our wedding day and throughout the entire wedding planning process. He frequently checked in during those two years to see if we needed any help with anything. We were lucky enough to have him at our wedding and he kept the flow and entertainment going the entire time. Their photobooth was one of the BEST I have ever seen and had so many props. Everyone was raving about it. You can tell Rudy is really passionate about what he does and loves it and that really shines through with his work. Crossing Midnight Entertainement’s band is phenomenal, but so are their DJs! DJ E. kept the dance floor packed the entire time. I highly recommend Rudy, Genesis, and the entire Crossing Midnight Enterta... Read more

  • Firstly, for me to write a review the day after my wedding when i’m exhausted and hungover should prove how incredibly excited I am to write this! My wife knew of CME through one of her friends and I trusted that they were amazing since she knows good music but I did not anticipate how incredible they actually were! We could not agree on a DJ or band so we decided to get both. What a GREAT decision that was because the music did not stop! We gave them a lot of freedom to choose music for us (though we did request some of our favorites) because we trusted them to select the best for our occasion and we were right in that trust!! From the start, Genesis helped us fill out the questionnaire and went through all the questions we had. She made us feel so comfortable with the whole process. My god I cannot say ENOUGH good things about the professionalism and talent of this team. The band absolutely KILLED IT! The two women and Rudy (the owner) who all sang could belt a seri...

  • Words cannot express how elated we are with Rudy and Crossing Midnight Entertainment. We wanted to do something special for the wedding, so we opted for a live band. From the the day we decided to book them, Rudy and his crew went above and beyond their duties to make our special day perfect. Rudy and Genesis followed up with us throughout our wedding planning process via email and phone. Rudy and Genesis met us in person to plan our special day. They had a wedding template that included special song requests, walk out music, wedding procession and ceremony schedule. Basically, they helped us plan the day while we were busy stressing about everything else. We planned a choregraphed dance with two different songs. We practiced through the youtube videos and we were concerned that the beat and sound could not be matched by a live band. Not only did Rudy and the band match the beat, but they also brought the same energy and liveliness of the music. The band played a variety of music from ... Read more

  • I cannot even express how amazing Crossing Midnight was. All of our guests are still talking about how phenomenal they were, we had so many people asking for their information! We weren't even considering a band at first, but after seeing CM at our showcase they completely blew us away and we knew we HAD to have them play at our wedding! I've been to many weddings, and CM blows any other band out of the water. They were so talented and fun, dancing and singing and getting the guests involved! Not only were they so helpful, responsive, and attentive during our planning process, but they had our dance floor PACKED (+200 guests) the entire night!! They played a wide variety of music and our special request songs. They were so accommodating and worked within our budget while helping us achieve our dream wedding! HIGHLY recommend!!

  • CME was probably the most talked about thing our wedding. So many people came up to us to say how AMAZING they were and how impressed with the entire band they were. Everyone brought something unique and made our experience unforgettable. They were so open our recommendations and never made us feel weird even about our unique song choices. They made us feel like our wedding was important to them and their passion, generosity, and attention to detail truly showed the entire night. We can't wait to see CME at other weddings and around the Island :)

  • Before we were engaged, we always spoke about having a band at our wedding, but we did not know if it would be a possibility due to our budget. We worked with Rudy when first inquiring with CME. Rudy answered our never-ending questions, had the patience of a saint, and did everything in his power to make us happy. It was a no brainer when we booked CME. Genesis was the best and checked-up with us to see if there was anything we needed; she was an amazing support system. Leading up to the wedding we did not have too many questions, but during our big/final meeting with Rudy and Genesis a month before the big day, we had so many questions that our meeting lasted over two hours. Rudy and Genesis took their time to ensure that all of our questions and concerns were answered and finalized. Rudy and Genesis were beyond accommodating. On our wedding day, words cannot describe how helpful and amazing these two were; checking on us to see if we needed anything during the wedding and making sure... Read more

  • Rudy and Crossing Midnight played at our daughter's wedding on 9/1/19, and they were amazing! Not only were they so entertaining, with an incredible repertoire of music across all genres, but they were also so much more. Their vocalists were awesome, from high-powered party songs to soulful ballads when appropriate. Band members were often found in the middle of the dance floor, mixing it up with the guests! But Rudy orchestrated everything -- constantly monitoring my daughter and my family, to make sure we never needed anything. Quick story -- at one point, I was searching for the singer belting out "Hot Stuff" (who I soon found on the dance floor). Rudy saw me searching for something and caught my eye while he was in full performance, and non-verbally asked me if everything was OK. Incredible. Best wedding band I have ever seen! Get the horns. So worth it!

    Fred, Thank you so much for your review! Rudy and the team had an amazing time. We are glad everyone enjoyed themselves and wish you nothing but the best! Feel free to keep in touch! -Genesis

  • Crossing Midnight Ent. was the most incredible part of our wedding. They were accommodating, professional and sounded absolutely amazing! They had our wedding rocking from start to finish. I have already reserved them for events YEARS from now! Our guests were blown away by the vocals and sound they provided. They are without a doubt worth every penny and will leave you with all promises met and even exceeded. I cannot thank them enough for the sound, energy, and expertise they provided on our wedding day. I had heard them at a wedding previously so it was a no brainer choosing them for our day.

    Thank you Katherine! It was really a pleasure to work with you and John! We look forward to being a part of your future events. 🥳 -Genesis & Rudy

  • Crossing Midnight Band is an EXCELLENT band! We got so many compliments after the wedding from guests telling us they loved our band and that they all were great singers/musicians! Rudy is a also a great MC! We found them at the Nassau Coliseum Wedding Expo, their energy, enthusiasm, and professionalism sold us. There website video does not do them justice. We had a nine piece which was awesome, I think you can't go wrong anywhere from 6-9 pieces with this band! Thank you Rudy and Band for making our day so fun and awesome!!

    Thank you so much Shannon! We’re so happy you found us at the expo and booked us right way. It was an honor working with you and your family!

  • Thank you for making my wife and my wedding something truly special. Rudy, Genesis and the entire band were amazing and perfect at not only engaging the crowd but reading the crowd. Rudy also did a great job coordinating everything with us - right down to ensuring we ate during the party and didn’t miss that part of it! From the bottom of my heart thank you for making our wedding special!

  • It has been a year since our wedding and our guests still talk about our wedding band. Crossing Midnight performed far beyond our expectations. I do not think there was a single person sitting down. Rudy was so easy to work with and really made planning less stressful. Even at our wedding he was helping to get rid of some of the stress so that we could fully take in and enjoy our day. My father decided to surprise me with our father/daughter dance song and Rudy and his band learned the song and performed it perfectly. I really wish I had more reasons to hire Crossing Midnight just so I could dance and listen to them over and over again.

    Thank you so much Danielle! It was our pleasure to be part of such a special day and we’re glad all of your guests enjoyed our music. 🤗

  • We hired Rudy and his team for the “Best of Both Worlds” package (band & dj) and photo booth. Rudy was great from when we met him for a consultation and we immediately connected with him. He is super personable and would check up on us every month or so via text or email to make sure we are good to go and that we are feeling good. The band and DJ kept the crowd dancing throughout the night and everyone, and we mean everyone, at the wedding had something good to say about them! Couldn’t have imagined the wedding without them :)

  • Crossing Midnight really set the tone for our entire wedding - they were so upbeat and kept us dancing all day! Their talent is truly incredible; we couldn’t believe the range of music they’re able to cover. They worked the crowd from start to finish and our guests are still raving about them weeks later. Genesis & Rudy were wonderful to work with from start to finish. I can’t imagine having my wedding day without them.

  • Crossing midnight entertainment (CME) is the wrong name of this band.....they should be called “the best, people, entertainers, band, musicians, life of the party, rock you till your shoes fall off, unbelievable sound, crossing into the time of your life midnight entertainment”. From the day my wife and I met Rudy and Genesis we fell in love not just their band, but them as people. Being a DJ/MC myself for 10 years, I know every type of personality and business owner in the entertainment industry. Trust me when I tell you, you will never find a better entertainment company than Crossing Midnight. Simply put they are the real deal. To give you an example, our wedding reception started at 7. Most entertainment companies will show up two hours early, quickly throw all their equipment together, then rush through the show. CME arrived on our wedding day at 3pm, carefully setting up their equipment and paying attention to the small details like hiding the wires so that they are no... Read more

    Thank you SO much Sam & Steve, you guys were a pleasure to work with & we’re glad everyone had fun at your wedding & were able to convert your friends to choosing a band instead of DJ! We truly hope we are able to stay in touch! -Genesis & Rudy
