  • All I can say is WOW!! We knew CTO Tribeca would be an incredible band from the moment we listened to them at the showcase. Our wedding guests continuously commented to us throughout the evening how amazing they are, and it was evident by how many of us stayed on the dance floor for the duration of the evening! My sister worked with CTO Manhattan over 15 years ago, and when it came time for us to select our wedding band, we knew we’d be in great hands with the CTO family. We’re so thrilled with Tribeca’s performance, and Tribeca's band leader Maylyn was an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you CTO Tribeca for helping us create such wonderful memories and keeping our guests on their feet! Married 10/19/19

  • What a great band! I'm used to seeing one main singer in a band, but almost all of them sang and they all had amazing voices and energy. Cannot recommend enough!

  • Flora and Rex are on their Honeymoon. Flora asked me to get back to you. So what follows is on behalf of Flora and Rex; Firstly, Flora and Rex attended one of your “go see the bands” outings and fell in love with the band. By all accounts the booking was easy, and the band leader worked with Flora and Rex every step of the way. For the ceremony they even provided lovely live background music that fit the moment and additional music during the cocktail hour. But then . . . . . . People entered the ballroom and heard “DAH BAND” ! Spine tingling ! Songs we all know and love by heart ! Motown Has Come Alive ! THEY WERE GREAT ! ! ! Nothing like a full dance floor to tell you how good the music is ! During breaks, a solo artist would perform beautiful songs at a lower tone so people could eat and talk, really nice. Then Bingo, the band would start up again ! No talking over the mike, just music ! For me p... Read more

    Thank you for the wonderful feedback. It was our pleasure to be a part of your special day! We wish Rex and Flora many years of happiness together. - Gloria, CTO Park Central

  • Virgil and the rest of Midtown Express are incredibly talented musicians who know how to keep the energy of the party going. They read our wedding crowd really well and kept the dance floor packed all night. Even though The Barnes Foundation where we held our wedding forbids subwoofers and requires the volume to be a bit lower to protect the artwork, we honestly could not tell because the band sounded so great. Our friends and family cannot stop talking about our phenomenal band - one person even asked if Midtown Express recorded a CD that she could buy! The band also did a great job at learning two new songs for us. There is absolutely nothing that we would change about our experience with Midtown Express because their talent, professionalism and responsiveness was incredible from start to finish.

  • You will not be sorry working with CTO. Carmen and his team delivered on every single promised element and then some. Being the father of the bride and in the entertainment business I can only describe how the CTO Manhattan band sounded in a single word, AWESOME! It raised the whole event up to another level. A level where almost all of the 130 guests were on the dance floor continuously. I would recommend CTO not only because of the band but also how easy and efficient they were to work with. A solid 5 out of 5 stars!

  • We could not be happier with CTO 5th Avenue, who were spectacular. Bandleaders Ramona and Bryan were fantastic and responsive in all of their pre-wedding communications with us, as was Angie, our contact with CTO. The performance from 5th Avenue was, without exaggeration, a magical experience we will never forget. 5th Avenue was the primary reason we were able to do exactly what we wanted on our wedding day: throw our guests an amazing party. 5th Avenue provided music for our ceremony (keys and guitar), cocktail hour (keys and sax), and reception (a seven piece band). The band played their hearts out and played songs from a truly impressive array of genres. They had people dancing even before dinner was served and kept the dance floor packed for three straight hours. No one wanted to sit down or take a break because each song was as good or better than the last! Everyone we have spoken to since the wedding has told us that 5th Avenue was the best wedding band they have eve... Read more

  • CTO Tribeca was amazing, we cannot stop raving about them to anyone who will listen! They were so easy to work with leading up to our wedding and were quick to respond to any questions and adjustments we asked for. The band kept our guests dancing all night, everyone loved them and we continue to hear very positive feedback. CTO is very professional and has great bands, definitely go to one of their showcases to check out their talented musicians.

  • With that, what more can I say than: WOW! We had the absolute pleasure of working with CTO Tribeca for our wedding on July 13th at Hotel DuPont, and they were nothing short of out of this world. Not only is Maylyn extremely kind and patient as the band leader, she is such a talent and fabulous host. I have had countless people since the moment the band started playing to today ask me who they were and how did I find them. The talent, energy, diverse musical genres, choreography, I could go on and on - from top to bottom I felt as if I was at an amazing show and was rocking out with my closest friends. My husband and I are both professional musicians and had a number of professional musicians from across the country in the room, and everyone was and continues to rave about Tribeca. I'll be honest that one of the things that set CTO Tribeca apart from other bands (and I'm not joking that we easily listened to 75+ from DC to NYC) was they so effortlessly fit together and have GREAT harmon...

  • CTO Grand Central had our dance floor packed from the beginning of our wedding until the last song. They played songs that kept everyone on the dance floor. They were easy to work with and listened to all our request! Days later and people are still talking about the band!
