  • I hired them for my wedding that was supposed to take place in September 2020. Due to COVID we had to postpone and when I told them they new date they said they were free, but then I reached out a week later to see if I needed to sign a new contract and they said the booked another wedding on my date. They didn't even ask me or check with me and then refused to go back to the other bride who booked after me! No professionalism and just plain rude. Not a great way to do business. I built a budget around this band and now my new band is more expensive throwing off my whole budget. They also refused to give me my deposit back when they screwed me over! Don't use them or if you do make sure you have a back up just in case they forget your date and book a different wedding.

    Hillary, We are sorry your date did not work out , however submitting a bad review like yours does not reflect on your organizations skills. We have a 46 year track record of impeccable service. You should rethink about what you posted.

  • Grand Central Station is hands down the best group of live performers in the area. From the M/C during introductions and speeches to the music selection for special dances, dinner hour, party time and the final song they had everything under control and kept everyone entertained young and not so young. Toward the end of the night even the venue staff were dancing. Safe to say EVERYONE had a blast! Thank you Grand Central Station!

  • Grand Central Station did an awesome job at our wedding! I was nervous about them before the wedding because we hired them based off their Wedding Wire & Knot reviews and we were only able to see them play a few songs at an event we travelled to. Coming up from NYC, I thought maybe they wouldn't be what we were looking for, but they were exactly what we were looking for! We didn't want the typical DJ that was going to blast the music and lights to the point that you couldn't think and couldn't enjoy the party. They kept everyone entertained and dancing and played to the room beautifully. We've gotten so many compliments from our friends and our parents' friends on how great the band was. They played everything from 60s, to country, to pop, etc. Our only regret of the wedding was that we didn't have more time with them!

  • Very easy to work with and very talented! We couldn't be more happy with how everything went on our big day. We would use them again in a heartbeat for any other event in the future. Highly recommend this band!

  • Grand Central Station helped to make our wedding the best ever! They were extremely professional during the planning process and were open to all of our specific requests. They kept the dance floor PACKED all night-- these guys are experts at reading a crowd. My husband and I turned around to go and say our hellos to our guests at their tables and suddenly nobody was sitting because EVERYONE was on the dance floor. I have had so many people tell me that our band was the best ever. I'd give them more than five stars if that was an option.

  • Grand Central Station was the biggest complement we received from our guests about our wedding. The dance floor was packed since the first song they played. Paul was wonderful MC'ing and organizing our reception. The band even worked with my sisters as they surprised us by singing a speech! I can't say enough positive things about our experiences with Grand Central Station. They were responsive with emails or any questions we had throughout the wedding planning process. They learned songs for our first dances, and they sounded just like the original versions. They were absolutely wonderful. When my fiancé and I were first engaged and went to an event to hear Grand Central Station play, a young woman came up to us and told us about her experiences with the band. She had them at her wedding and said the dance floor was never empty and the band was the life of the party. I can now say we had the exact same experience. We are so pleased with Paul and Grand Central Station. If you do choos... Read more

  • Grand Central Station made our wedding night so memorable. Our goal for our reception was to have a great party with our friends and family that we love, and they got everyone on their feet and dancing all night. They will work with you to find the songs you absolutely want to hear, and then leave the rest in their capable hands. For the final two hours of the night, no one was at their tables, they were all on the dance floor having a ball. Many of our friends raved about the night. Look no further than Grand Central Station for your special night!

  • We are SO happy we decided to book GCS. My parents had seem them several times at bars and venues in the area and they came highly recommended by some of our friends. They traveled to our venue on Lake George and had everything set and ready to go without me needing to coordinate anything. Our guest were blown away by how fun and engaging they were. They played all the songs we specifically requested and kept the dance floor full all night. They also let my cousin step in and sing an amazing rendition of a 4 Non Blondes song while they played. It was possibly the best moment of the night. They are also a great value. I'd highly recommend them to anyone who is on the fence with Band vs. DJ. Go with GCS, you won't be sorry.

  • Grand Central Station Band helped make our day a huge success! They were critical partners to us and our other vendors to set the right vibe of each portion of our day, from cocktail hour, formalities and dinner to full blown party. Our friends and family are still talking about them! Thanks GCS Band! You're amazing. - Jeremiah & Tim Tyrrell

  • Grand Central Station was by far one of the best parts of our wedding! The first time I heard them play, I knew that I had to have them at my wedding. They certainly know how to entertain a crowd and kept my guests up on their feet all night. They were professional, energetic and so much fun! Their whole demeanor as a band greatly contributed to the incredible atmosphere of our wedding and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

  • Greatest wedding band of all time! Both of our families love to dance and have a fun time so we knew GCS had to be our band! GCS had our guests and ourselves dancing before dinner was even served and after dinner the dance floor was PACKED the entire time!! We danced the night away. Our guests loved them so much and said it was the best wedding they've been too. Many guests even asked for their card at the end of the night!
