  • When we were looking for music for our wedding, we knew that we wanted a band. We needed a band that could bridge the generational gap in music for our guests and keep the dance floor packed all night long. Hudson Heights Band not only delivered on that but went above and beyond and were the shining star in our perfect night! From the ceremony music (piano and keys) learning instrumental versions of songs near and dear to us to the 8 piece band learning some of our favorite songs to enhance the night, we are still receiving compliments on how awesome the band is! Eden , Danny, Jon, Sean-David, and the rest of the group were so responsive to us during the planning process and helping shape our playlist to keep the energy up and the party dancing. Words cannot do this band justice for how awesome they are, you just have the hear them for yourselves and then immediately book them! Thank you for making our wedding so incredible and for getting everyone at our wedding, from ages 15 to 80, t... Read more

  • The talent of these musicians is above and beyond. They can play different instruments, being able to perform different genres of music. They played beautiful music for the ceremony, switched to light jazz for the cocktails and dinner, finishing with great dance music for the reception. We had a female singer but the men playing instruments were able to sing other pieces as well, so we had great coverage of music selections and a great variety of sound. They played many requests and set a beautiful tone for the wedding . Gabriel was amazing on the keyboard and also could sing , and play bass. The saxophone player was able to double on flute. In our family, several of us have music degrees, so we value music highly. The music was one of the most important components of our wedding , and we couldn’t have been happier with these musicians.

  • We recently had the EMG 8 piece band at Bear Brook Valley in NJ. They were UNBELIEVABLE. Could not have delivered a more perfect night for us - between the cocktail hour and reception. Working with Mike was easy and everyone at the party can't stop talking about how talented the entire band is. Can't think of one negative thing to say, it was perfect. Thank You guys for making our night unforgettable.

  • Where to even begin?! When planning our wedding, we knew we wanted to take the time in finding the perfect DJ. We felt that the music really would set the tone for the entire night and we wanted to make sure our guests felt that way too. As we searched and searched, we came across Tom with EMG and knew immediately he was the perfect fit. His professionalism was consistent, our personalities clicked and his flexibility was unreal. I was a crazy bride and decided to change our first dance song HOURS before the ceremony and Tom accommodated and supported me within minutes of my request. Tom, and Joe, we cannot thank you enough for your pure talent and good hearts. You took such good care of us newlyweds and all of our guests. I don't even know what the centerpieces on the table looked like because we were up dancing the ENTIRE night!!

  • EMG did not disappoint. From the very beginning we knew they were the right choice for them to share in our special day. Tom Gambuzza went above and beyond and we trusted him from the very beginning. I can tell you we did not stop dancing the entire night. It was super great to hear all our of our guests complimenting how amazing EMG was. We will never forget our best day ever thanks to EMG and especially Tom! Thank you guys!

  • Hiring Elegant Music Group was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Having to plan remotely it was tricky finding good vendors, and thankfully we came across EMG! They are exceptionally professional and knowledgeable (both in the materials they have available online and in their interactions). Shawn worked with us to help find the right music and instruments for our ceremony and we left the reception almost entirely in his hands (we gave some input on preferred genres). We had a review with Shawn a few days prior to ensure we were all on the same page, and the day of Shawn and Matty knocked it out of the park! We had two fantastic musicians for the ceremony (keyboard and sax) who did a phenomenal job. For the cocktail hour and reception Shawn and Matty knew exactly what to play when (and at what volume) to really kick things off and create an warm and enthusiastic environment. I think the only time during the reception the dance floor wasn't packed was when folks took bre... Read more

  • Bryan and the team at EMG went above and beyond for our wedding. Honestly, I just had this worrying mental image of a Pauly-D style DJ when we were looking around for folks to handle the music for the wedding, and couldn't have been happier with EMG. Bryan was a blast to work with during the planning, and on the wedding night, the dance floor was always FULL. Overall, they took the stress out of that element of the wedding planning completely, and our guests had an amazing time.

  • 5 stars for the wonderful folks at EMG! Like many other couples, our original wedding plans were disrupted by the COVID pandemic. As we started to approach our contracted vendors about how to handle this new uncertainty, it was naturally with some anxiety. We had a spectrum of responses from those vendors, some understanding & collaborative, some... less so. I *cannot say enough* kind words about our experience navigating the uncertainty with the team at EMG. We were met with a very warm, human touch by the team there (and Michael in particular). Highest possible recommendation-- on one hand they are consumately professional and remarkably polished, and on the other hand, you will be treated with warmth and care!

  • I can't speak highly enough about the job EMG and our DJ Matty Goshen did. From start to finish, Matty and EMG were amazing. 1st off, EMG is a preferred partner at The Madison Hotel where our reception was. In addition to that, Matty had relationships with all of the staff and was so comfortable with the venue having been there many times so we really didn't have a worry in world. The music selection was fantastic and exactly aligned with what we wanted. I'd recommend EMG and especially Matty to anyone.

  • My husband and I agreed that choosing a DJ was one of the most (if not the most) important decisions when wedding planning because they either make or break the party. Since we were the first of our friends to get married, we only had reviews to rely on when making our decision. I had read lots of good reviews about EMG and Bryan Festa in particular and man were they SPOT ON!! When we first met Bryan he immediately put us at ease and let us know that he didn’t want us to stress about the details (which songs to play, how to organize entrances into the ballroom, etc). He took care of it all, which was super important to us, considering we had an entire wedding to plan. All we had to do was give him a little direction (Must Play/ Do Not Play) and he ran with it. Bryan and Alper exceeded all expectations we had for event hosts. They read the energy of the crowd and delivered an unbelievable night of dance music for all age groups. One of the things that stuck out to us the most was th... Read more

  • Our wedding day was close to perfect, but in reflecting upon it all, Cityscape and the Park Avenue Horns was the highlight for us and our guests. From day one of working with Mike and his band, their professionalism, flexibility, and passion for performing were on display. As musicians ourselves, my wife and I have very high standards for live music. We can say without a doubt that Cityscape surpassed them. The quality of their performance, the setlist, the transitions, the way they interacted with our guests all resulted in an outstanding experience. It has now been two weeks since the wedding and people are still raving about Cityscape and the Park Avenue Horns. Daniel and Christina Willever Lake Valhalla Club, 11/16/2019

  • I highly recommend Elegant Music. I was so impressed that they knew exactly how I wanted to reception and they knew exactly the feel of my party that I was going for. They were so very professional and great to work with. I was not worried at all that things were not in place. You should definitely go with Elegant Music.

  • WOW! Let me start by saying that 5 stars are not nearly enough -- EMG deserves a 10+ star review. From the moment I stumbled upon EMG's website I knew they were something special. What drew me to them right off the bat was their roster of incredible live musicians, the level of professionalism that seeped out of everything they did from handling a general inquiry to working out a detailed estimate immediately after our initial conversation, to their event hosts who were humble, kind, fun-loving and extremely passionate about delivering high-quality entertainment for people in love (seriously, these guys are super passionate about making sure you have the best wedding ever). Our wedding was on 3/8/2020 at The Rockleigh. Bryan Festa was our event host and I cannot even begin to say enough great things about working with him. He made the process super, super easy, was easily reachable and extremely responsive to questions. Beyond that, Bryan REALLY LOVES what he does and it came thro... Read more

  • Amazing wedding DJ! We had Bryan and he absolutely killed it. The entire process with him was so simple and stress-free. He played exactly what we wanted, set the perfect party vibe for our wedding and kept everyone on their feet! My two pet peeves for wedding DJs are the ones that resort to playing basic old wedding tunes and ones that talk way too much. You don't have to worry about any of that with Bryan and I'm sure that goes for the other DJs at EMG as well! Such a modern, fun, and easy business to work with! We added on a snowfall effect which was perfectly beautiful, and an electric violinist who our guests loved and was a really fun addition to the reception. I do wish the violinist interacted with the crowd more, but once people noticed her, they loved her. I would 100% recommend EMG. Hire them and they'll treat you like family. They'll invite you to their events throughout your engagement, keep in constant contact with you, and on your special day they'll create exactly the ... Read more

  • Tom was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is so passionate about his work, and it shines through in everything that he does. During our planning sessions, Tom asked us deep questions about our musical tastes, which helped us craft playlists that would go over well with our wedding guests while being consistent with our own tastes. One of our playlists was incredibly long, and yet he somehow managed to pick all of the songs that our guests loved the most--which included some really deep cuts that really only my friends would like! He really paid attention to what we wanted, and thought of details that we didn't think of. While Elegant Music Group was a bit more expensive than the other vendors we looked for, I think they were worth every penny. One additional note for LGBT+ couples--we felt completely at ease with Tom and his whole team, which isn't necessarily the norm with wedding DJ teams.
