  • Brett and I were married in May 2019 at the Hyatt Regency in Jersey City. The Metropolitan Players are a must have at your wedding or ANY event! We got to enjoy the band at Brett’s sister’s wedding in September 2018. We knew right there that we wanted the same band at our wedding. I couldn’t wait to celebrate on the dance floor with them. Many of our guests expressed how much they loved the band and how amazingly talented they were. We had so much fun dancing at our wedding! Everyone was dancing, even family who normally wouldn’t dance! Erin and her team were great to work with. They accommodated requests we made and had wonderful song suggestions to moments we were stuck on. We had a unique ceremony musical request and it turned out even better than I imagined! Erin was also the one who recommended the venue and photographer we ended up working with! She was a huge help! We are so thankful for all her expertise that led to the perfect wedding! Book them now!!

  • The Metropolitan Players are outstanding!!! My husband and I are extremely happy that we hired them for our wedding ceremony and reception. They exceeded our expectations in every way. We had several planning calls to discuss music preferences, number and type of instruments and number of vocalists. They have a wide range of music from which we created our playlist for the reception. We collaborated on timeline for the ceremony and the reception. They were 100% reliable, professional and pleasant to work with. They were flexible and fair in working with our budget. Their onsite coordinator was on top of every detail and the musicians were fabulous!!! Our guests from young to old were on the dance floor to the end of the reception and we received many unsolicited compliments from our guests about the band. My husband and I had a wonderful time dancing, and they made our first dance especially memorable. Everyone we worked with from the planning coordinator, onsite coordinator... Read more

  • What is there to say? If you are lucky enough to have the Metropolitan Players play at your wedding, do not hesitate to book them! They are truly the best wedding band I have ever seen, and I am SO HAPPY that we were able to have them at our wedding. If you want people to dance all night, you will NOT be disappointed! Erin was so sweet and helpful from the start, and she was super accommodating of all our requests! We asked them to learn several additional songs for our wedding, and they absolutely nailed every single one. People were on the dance floor almost nonstop, from before dinner at 630 until the encore at 11pm, and everyone had the most amazing time. We were all simply blown away, and I would recommend the Metropolitan Players to anyone who is getting married in the area!! Wish we could do it all over again!

  • Erin, Drew and all of Met Players were incredible. It is a rare thing to find a wedding band that sounds great and appears to have fun playing together with everyone and it was one of the biggest things we were looking for in a band. Erin was great at answering all of our questions, and there were a lot, and extremely responsive via email. We have heard nothing but amazing things from all of our guests about the band.

  • Choosing The Met Players for your wedding music should be one of the easiest decisions you make -- search no further, you won’t regret it! They were INCREDIBLE to work with from the early planning stages months before our big day all the way through to the end of our wedding night. They executed flawlessly and we received so many compliments from guests about how impressed they were with the band! Throughout reception, the Met Players read the room really well to play the perfect mix of songs (including a couple special requests they learned just for us) and nailed the timing throughout the night. We also loved the piano and bass duo that set the ambience at our ceremony and cocktail hour, and Met Players made the process of adding these musicians in as part of the package super easy. We researched and interviewed several bands while we were considering our options. We were immediately impressed when we spoke with Erin, the cofounder of Met Players. She is friendly, professiona...

  • Stop looking for a band, you’ve found the best one! The Metropolitan Players made our July wedding day amazing! The band played my brother’s wedding two years ago impressing everyone. When I got engaged, I immediately knew I had to have the Metropolitan Players at my wedding. Erin was so easy to work with. From the early planning stages to the minute by minute itinerary, she understood everything we wanted and was able to make it happen. She was great at getting back to us at every email and phone call. Erin was on top of everything way in advance, which helped me stay relaxed through all the planning and the day of! The band’s song list already has so many hits, but they learned all of the new songs we requested. It was very important to us that we had tons of dance time and they made that happen no problem! Our guests are still talking about how great the band was. Everyone was dancing the entire night! The Metropolitan Players are professional and extremely talented The... Read more

  • This band is the main reason our wedding was the perfect celebration! The music, the timeline, and the flow of the entire evening was great. The band sound amazing and our wedding guests kept complimenting us throughout the night about how great everything sounded. The band members are truly talented musicians who know how to keep a party going! Erin did a fantastic job not only during the wedding, but leading up to the day. We had a lot of special requests and a lot of opinions about music and she listened to everything we had to say and tailored the evening to be exactly how we envisioned it. The band also played very specific music (chosen by us) for our ceremony and they even collaborated with the groomsmen, who played trumpet with them after only a 5 minute rehearsal! Erin can make anything happen to make the couple happy on their special day! I cannot recommend this band enough and am SO happy they were able to be such a huge part of our special day.

  • "This the best wedding band I've ever heard!" This was the comment we heard over and over from numerous guests. The music was high energy and very dance-able. The band did an excellent job of reading the crowd and selected songs that kept the party alive throughout the night! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

  • Metropolitan Players was absolutely amazing for our wedding this past April in NJ. Right from the start of the planning stages, Erin and Drew worked with us to design our perfect “band”, incorporating brass and woodwinds as requested by my parents , as well as letting us rank the female and male vocalists. We were able to attend a showcase night to sample the tunes, before we signed the contract where we could meet with Erin and Drew and several of the band members . And I can confirm that the big day could not have been any better. From the ceremony music which was a combination of pop hit instrumental and traditional classical to the cocktail hour background music to the amazing 10 piece band we had- Met Players made our day! They had all generations up and dancing and the dance floor full of positive vibes and energy up until the last song at Midnight. And I can tell you that they learned our 1st dance song - Love Someone by Lukas Graham - and It was just as good as the origi... Read more

  • They are so talented - several of our guests noted how much energy they brought. They also have a huge selection of songs. Not to mention they'll learn a few additional songs by request. The Metropolitan Players host showcases so you can see them ahead of time and even pick out the singers you want. Their manager, Erin is so great to work with. Very responsive and thoughtful. Always willing to help in any way she can. So organized that you know you don't have to even think about the day going off without a hitch. Book them now!

  • Our wedding goal was for our guests to wake up the following morning and say "Holy moly, what a great wedding!" We wanted them to be exhausted from dancing all night long and man was that mission accomplished with the help of The Met Players. Erin and Drew treat your wedding like it's their own -- every detail is perfectly handled. They're true professionals, who somehow also manage to treat you like you're a part of their extended family. They love what they do and it comes through in your wedding. I was blown away by their thoughtfulness and willingness to learn special songs that my husband and I wanted to hear throughout our wedding. And based on our suggestions, they built a playlist of songs that felt true to us as a couple and ensured our wedding was a huge dance party! Hire them ASAP!

  • When I think back to our wedding day, I always go straight to the music. I'll cut to the chase, Metropolitan Players is an incredible band and everyone should hire them. They made our reception what it was, and everyone could not stop raving about the music (including all of our snobby hipster music afficianado friends). Let's start from the beginning -- after doing a ton of research, we found Metropolitan Players, and watched their videos. We thought, ok these guys are awesome but they probably won't sound as good in person, right? We then went to their showcase and had a blast -- my husband and I looked at each other and basically said we have to hire them, they were so good! We were already crossing our fingers that we would get specific members of the band that we saw live. Next, we had the pleasure of working with Erin. Erin is professional, responsive, trustworthy, and just so nice. She always thought ahead for us when we were stressed out wedding planning, and had recomme... Read more

  • We had seen the Metropolitan Players play at a close friend's wedding, and when we got engaged, there was no question that we wanted them to play at our wedding! Having a great band was a major priority for us - we love to dance and wanted to be on the dance floor the entire night. And that's exactly what happened! From cocktail hour to the first song of the night to the last song of the night, the Metropolitan Players sounded great and got everyone ready to party. Our friends and family could not stop dancing and telling us how great the band was. They had a great variety of songs, and were able to make the necessary tweaks to make our first dance exactly perfect. Planning with Erin was so easy, and it was clear how much she cared about making us happy. The vocalists, Bryan, Chris H and Hannah S were AMAZING and Kelsey is a SHOWSTOPPER. Chelsea was so wonderful at keeping everything running smoothly throughout the night, and even managing a few curve balls for us. We could not recomme... Read more

  • The Met Players are 100% the best band you will hear! Hands down. We got married in October on Long Island and people are still complimenting our band. It felt like you were at a concert the whole night! All the singers and musicians were so talent and worked so well together! Everyone was dancing and singing the entire time. At the end of the night, our guest started chanting "one more, one more" because they were loving the band so much! What wedding has a legitimate encore?! In addition to the band being so incredible the day of our wedding, they were amazing leading up to the wedding. Erin and her team are extremely well-organized and know what it takes for a wedding to run smoothly. For example, they have a "wedding day" planning sheet that they have you fill out a few months before your big day. This was really helpful for us when thinking about specifics, such as entrance songs, order of events, etc. We also had multiple calls before the wedding and Erin even called our venue... Read more
