  • John and The Current Affair Band were above and beyond everything we could have hoped for! Getting married during the current pandemic environment was hard enough, so having John be so responsive and willing to work with us to make our wedding day so special was simply amazing. Even with restrictions and safety precautions in place, it did not stop our guests from flooding the dance floor for the entire night! For days afterwards, our family and friends could not stop raving about how great our band was! I highly recommend hiring The Current Affair Band for your wedding or event, as you will NOT be disappointed. We plan on hiring them in the future for any and all events!

  • Mother of the Groom 8/22/2020 Amazing! This wonderful group of talented people played at our daughter’s NY wedding 11 years ago and this past weekend traveled to NH for us to play at our son’s wedding!! And having a wedding during these times had some challenges ...three venue changes, two date changes, Covid precautions! John stuck with us through it all! And we are SO grateful! The guitarist played at the ceremony and the cocktail hour, with the full band rocking the ball room until midnight!! Everyone loved them! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • This band STOLE the show at our wedding! I cannot begin to count the number of compliments we have received! They played every era, every genre! There was NOTHING they couldn’t master! They had the entire wedding on the dance floor the entire time!! John is the most patient, easygoing, and organized person to work with. It was a pleasure to work with him! He never made me feel like I was annoying either, and I totally was!!! They provided huge screens and zap photographer for real time photos to be played AND for sentimental slideshows to play that my mother had prepared for our dances. Could NOT have asked for more!

  • Current Affair truly made our night! They are extremely talented musicians and played such a wide range of music that kept the dance floor packed all night long. John was so flexible and extremely easy to work with - he took every request we had with enthusiasm and was so accommodating. We got so many compliments from guests saying Current Affair was the best wedding band they've ever heard! HIGHLY recommend this band!

  • John and the entire Current Affair team were professional, responsive, flexible - and they delivered far better of an experience than I could have ever imagined. Knowing the band would be the most important thing at our wedding, we saw and spoke with literally hundreds of bands before my parents remembered the band playing at one of their friends weddings they said was the best dance party they’ve been to....and we got their contact info and John was so real, down to earth, and professional. beyond the ease to work with in the planning process (no red taps or management teams - your talking to the band lead the whole time), John and entire his team just delivered such an unreal performance on the day. They crush the oldies like the real deal and they also play songs of today. Just a few days before my wedding I requested a song they didn’t know and but they somehow practiced on their own that week and pulled it off on the day. We had Johns group play during the ceremony as ... Read more

  • Current Affair was great! They are very unique in that they will learn and play any song you want. Most bands have a limit to the songs you can request. Our guests were very happy with their music. John is great to work with!

  • My daughter Láuren recently got married at the Crescent Beach Club in Bayville, LI. The reception was amazing, an unforgettable evening. The Current Affair contributed to the unforgettable evening. The dance floor was packed the whole night. My guests could not stop raving about the Current Affair Band. They personalized the wedding with constant communication with the bride & groom prior to the wedding. I highly recommend the Current Affair for your next event.

  • I cannot put into words how THRILLED I am with Current Affair’s performance at my wedding!! Everyone literally danced the entire time which was exactly what I was hoping for! They ended the night with a performance of Mr. Brightside which completely brought the house down. I had wedding guests who are professional musicians come up to me and tell me they couldn’t believe how amazing the band was! Additionally, John was GREAT to work with and we are so thankful he and the band played the songs we requested including a last minute request of the portuguese rendition of “Girl from Ipanema” for my mother in law who is Brazilian (she cried the entire time they played it.) I really cannot say enough about this band!! Plus their price is completely reasonable! If you are looking to book a talented band for an event Current Affair is it.

  • I wish I could give a rating higher than 5 stars. We just had our wedding at the Ryland Inn this past weekend and the John and the rest of the band absolutely MADE the party. The dance floor was packed the entire night - even guests that we had never seen dance in the past were on their feet for most of the wedding! Music was so important to us that we sent the band an exhaustive list of songs we wanted to hear, and they played ALL of them (including several in Spanish and Italian), and played them beautifully! In the days since the wedding, guests have reached out to comment on how wonderful the band was. My only regret is that we barely had a chance to eat because every song was better than the next and we didn't want to miss the opportunity to dance and celebrate with our loved ones. Thank you, Current Affair, for making this wedding so memorable!

  • “Current Affair” makes the party! Over the past ten years we have enjoyed them at eight weddings, two of which were for our own children. We wouldn’t dream of having a wedding or event without them! They never take a break, they play to every generation, and they are a pleasure to deal with. The only advice - make sure your dance floor is big enough for all your guests! "Current Affair" is worth every penny!

  • John and Current Affair were (according to over a dozen of our guests) the best wedding band ever. We couldn't be happier with our choice. They kept the dance floor packed all night with a fantastic blend of classics and contemporary hits. They were also very flexible as we requested my brother's girlfriend to sing our first dance song with the band. John was prompt in his replies throughout the entire process and he really helped our special day go very smoothly. An all around amazing experience.

  • OMG!! John and his band just played our wedding and they were AMAZING! Great music, great vibes, great energy! It's exactly what my husband and I wanted for our wedding - to have fun and celebrate the fact that we were getting married. The variety of music that this band can play is superb, and their singers are out of this world. We wanted everything from 80's & 90's hip hop to 70's R&B to some Italian tarantella...and they played it all. Not to mention all the classics and some beautiful instrumentals that they played during our cocktail hour and while meals were being served (very important to us as we wanted music played all night long). John and Current Affair Music are simply the best!

  • Current Affair is an AMAZING wedding band, and band leader John is a super sweet and fun guy to work with. At our request he put together for us an 8-piece band that included 2 female vocalists (male & female). All vocalists, including backup vocals, were very talented and soulful. Band members had great stage presence and engaged the crowd, and all of our guests had a great time dancing and were super complimentary of our band choice. We wanted them to play a mix of top 40, classic rock, Motown, and oldies - they nailed it all. Aside from the reception music, John also organized a classical guitarist to play during the ceremony and a jazz trio to play during cocktail hour. Current Affair provided the perfect ambiance for every step of our wedding!
