  • 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

  • Metropolitan Players was an absolute dream! Book them ASAP! Our wedding was at the Bridgehampton Tennis & Surf Club in September 2018. We had at least 40-50 guests (120 in attendance) tell us our wedding was the best they had ever been to—they were effusive about it. As soon as Met Players invited guests to the dance floor, it was packed—and stayed packed for the night. We could not have asked for a more lively or fun evening. Before booking, I reached out to their competitors (Hank Lane, etc.), but Met Players stood out. Their payment structure is clear, the band is top notch, and the service is phenomenal. Erin and her team and wonderful to work with. They are responsive and answer any and all questions you may have. During the months leading up to the wedding, I felt totally taken care of by Erin. She would check in about details and follow-up on anything she needed. Erin and Drew, the founders, have built this company on love—they want your wedding to be a... Read more

  • We just had The Metropolitan Players play at our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding and I’m thrilled to say they were everything we could have wanted (and we wanted a lot!). Erin is a dream to work with in the planning, her quick response and attention to detail is impeccable. Everyone knows how much goes into planning an event like a wedding reception, but in the end there’s probably nothing more important than a great band to make it a truly fun and memorable event. The Met Players were in fact great, excelling at the three most critical elements: Pacing, range and skills. Pacing, because it can’t be all party the whole time, they played the perfect background music during speeches and dinner service, then completely cut loose for the second half of the night. Range, as represented by their varied set list, which naturally had a lot for the bride & groom and their young friends, but also plenty for the attendees ‘of a certain age’ like the parents of the wedding party ...

  • I cannot say enough positive things about working with Erin and having the Met Players at our wedding! We had booked a DJ but really wanted a live band so we reached out 4 months before our wedding, talked ourselves out of it and then came back to Erin 6 weeks before hand because we couldn't stop listening to their videos online. She got everything in order for us in record time and without any issue. Despite the logistics involved with a band, Erin made it all incredibly seamless and stress free. She was hands down the easiest, most pleasant vendor to coordinate with (and thats not to say we didn't have other great ones). Pre-wedding, I appreciated how prompt, detail oriented, friendly and organized she was. She patiently addressed all of our questions and concerns about logistics, pricing, talent and songs. They even agreed to learn 10 new songs on short notice without batting an eye and backed our friend (complete with harmonies thanks to a day-of rehearsal Erin coordinated) when s... Read more

  • As one of our wedding guests said to me weeks after the big day, "I don't know where you found your wedding band or how much you spent on them, but they were worth every penny." She was right, and you'd be FOOLISH not to book this group IMMEDIATELY. You won't regret it. Less than 24 hours after I sent a note to the Metropolitan Players inquiring about their availability and what they offer, Erin wrote me back and we had several months of back and forth where she answered my every question, helped me understand the contract, made arrangements to accommodate an unusual venue, and put my mind at ease. The professionalism and quality of their operation made hiring Erin and her team worth the $$ and the extra fee to have them travel several hours upstate for our big day, but their talent and enthusiasm for getting everyone on the dance floor at our wedding has given us memories we'll have forever. From getting the bride's dad up on the hay loft of a barn where he was air drumming to having ... Read more

  • The Metropolitan Players are the most fun, professional, and organized wedding band I have ever had the pleasure of working with. From booking, to coordination, travel, and finalizing the set list, they are on top of their game. They are such a great vendor to work with, that it really put my mind at ease about what kind of performance we would get on the big day. I knew they would knock my socks off, but that is an understatement. The energy, enthusiasm, and quality is just so far above and beyond what I could ever hope for. You should hire them immediately - I can't recommend them enough!

  • The Metropolitan Players did an incredible job with the music for our wedding (July 2018). Erin was a dream to work with from the beginning; She made a real effort to get to know our tastes and help us plan the perfect music for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. As a professional musician myself, I can’t help but be pretty picky, but I was smiling all night. The band’s musicianship and enthusiasm was out of this world. And with four singers, each singer sang the tunes that best suited them, rather than one singer doing everything. Our guests danced all night and were asking what clubs could they go see these guys play! I also appreciated that they brought their own sound person and coordinator to make sure everything ran smoothly. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

  • HIRE THIS BAND RIGHT NOW! We have only INCREDIBLE things to say about the Met Players. SO FUN, affordable, caring, attentive, and professional. Every single guest of ours has said that it was the best band they've seen and one of the most fun weddings they have been to and we have the Met Players to thank for that. Erin responded promptly to emails with kindness, enthusiasm, and PERSONAL responses. She truly made us feel like we weren't just a potential client but a friend who she really cared about. We were the first of our friends to get married so we came with LOTS of questions, and you name it, Erin helped. We attended many showcases that the Met Players hosted that were fantastic. We were able to confirm which band members we wanted, add songs to our playlist, and get SO excited for our big day. Erin was always eager to check in with us and we even had a phone conference with her and Drew to make sure that our special entrance plan of various MP3s was all set to run smoothly. ... Read more

  • Oh where to start! I truly could never put into words how wonderful The Metropolitan Players made our wedding. We wanted a wedding that would impress our guests in all aspects - flowers, location, food, and band. By hiring The Metropolitan Players, we did just that. Our guests were absolutely blown away by how impressive the band was and we could not thank them enough! They performed at our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and we could not be more pleased. The music was incredible and the musicians were so much fun and interactive! The dance floor was packed the entire night. Our guests cannot stop raving about the band and numerous guests have inquired about hiring them and referring them to other couples for their wedding day. Erin was absolutely fantastic to work with leading up to the wedding and made the whole process so smooth and easy. All the band members are so talented and were so kind at our wedding. The Metropolitan Players absolutely made our wedding perfec... Read more

  • We absolutely cannot recommend the Met Players enough, and have continued to refer them to friends and family in the tri-state area ever since our big day. From them beginning, we were treated with respect and excitement. The Met players management staff (big shout-out to Erin!!!) was helpful, flexible (we had a complex intro that they absolutely nailed), reliable, and easy going. They answered our questions in a timely fashion and helped us along the way, but never overwhelmed us. We had ample opportunity to give input on what we wanted, and they did a great job of filling in the gaps. The day of the wedding we had nothing to worry about – the band was on time, ready to go, and put on a show that we continue to hear about from our friends and family. The MC for the night approached us when necessary, but rarely and had no trouble running things and coordinating with our venue’s staff and schedule. To say we didn’t even realize they were there is not at all meant to be an... Read more

  • Stop whatever you're doing and look no further for your dream wedding band. Book the Metropolitan players right now for your big day! I cannot express enough how much I loved this band. Let me start off by saying I considered the music on our wedding day the most important aspect of the entire day. This band absolutely KILLED it. Their energy, their talent, and their pure joy and happiness SHINED. The voices of every single one of these band members is better than most famous artists singing live. My jaw was dropped hearing how perfect their voices were. Not only that, but the instrumentals were the best I've ever heard. They were jumping around having a great time interacting with my guests. At one point I turned and looked around the room and all 200 of my guests were out of their seats and on the dance floor having an amazing time. My wedding venue even told me the Metropolitan Players were the best band they have ever heard play there, which I was not surprised by at all because th... Read more

  • Hiring The Metropolitan Players before ever hearing them play was not an easy decision. As it turns out, it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. Erin was absolutely amazing to work with from day one...extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and friendly. They traveled to Buffalo, NY for us, and I saw them pull up to our venue just as I was waiting for my wife for our first look. We all exchanged an excited wave with each other, and it was in that moment I knew the night was going to be one we wouldn't soon forget. Our request and do not play lists were executed to a tee, and we couldn't have been happier with entrusting them to play our entrance and first dance songs. If you are looking for a wedding band that will not only rock your dance floor all night long, but also keep your guests raving about it for weeks to come...stop what you are doing and make sure they have your date available RIGHT NOW. Thank you guys again for your contribution to such an unforgettabl... Read more

  • We cannot say enough good things about this band!! My husband and I were married a few weeks ago and our friends and family are still raving about how great the band played. A few of our guests even said, " That was the best band I have ever seen at a wedding". Erin was extremely helpful and responsive from start to finish, which I really appreciated. She took all of our requests and the band delivered exactly what we were looking for. Our guests were out of their seats and dancing the whole night. The band truly made our wedding such a fun night and we highly recommend using the Metropolitan Players!

  • Met Players were unbelievable. My now wife and I spent months before the wedding watching their YouTube videos constantly, getting pumped for the big day. Believe me when I tell you that they were so much better than we could have even imagined. All of our guests were on the dance floor the entire party and days later we are still getting compliments about the band, their songs, and their energy. Special shout out to Erin who was beyond helpful and had almost as much enthusiasm about my wedding as I did. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Top of the line. 5 stars. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.
