  • Every aspect of working with the Metropolitan Players blew us away. From booking with ease to their event timeline to day-of logistics, the Metropolitan Players were professional beginning on day 1. There is something to be said for a vendor that makes planning a wedding that much easier. Then, when the big day finally arrived, the Metropolitan Players hit all the right notes (sorry for the bad pun). The only complaint is that when the night ended, we wanted the party to keep going! It has been a month since our wedding, and friends & family are still raving about the music. The Metropolitan Players proved to be integral to our wedding and will not soon be forgotten. When we were going through our music options, we never considered how professionalism and management would weigh into the equation, but the Metropolitan Players bring both of these plus a party! A ten out of ten!!

  • My wife and I were looking for an exceptional band for our wedding reception. In our opinion if you book a bad band, it'll ruin the whole night. After hearing many samples online, we came across The Metropolitan Players. We didn't get to hear them live, but I could tell based from the video clips on their website that they would be our best option. We contacted Erin, one of the band's agents, and she quickly responded. Over the next few weeks, Erin answered all of our questions thoroughly via email. She provided all the info that we needed, and she even offered to meet with us at our venue in advance to make sure the band had enough space to set up. This meeting put our minds at ease. Our wedding reception took place on the second floor of The Metropolitan Building in Long Island City, NY. The band was flexible in that we were able to book them for a 4 hour reception only, and we were not obligated to book them for the ceremony and cocktail hour (although you have that option). We ...

  • We booked The Met Players for our 10/14/17 wedding and they were easily the BEST part of our wedding! Three months later and we are still getting compliments. The dance floor at our wedding was completely full the entire night and none of our guests wanted to leave it when the night was over! We are so happy that we splurged and booked the Met Players!

  • We used the Metropolitan Players for our wedding in September, and they were phenomenal! The dance floor was packed the entire time, and they did every song perfectly. Erin was beyond wonderful to work with, she was always responsive and answered all of our silly questions. The day of, everything went exactly as planned. If you don't use the Metropolitan Players for your wedding you will be making a mistake! Our wedding would not have been the same without them!

  • After booking our venue, choosing a band that would keep our guests dancing all night was at the top of our to-do list, and after some extensive research, I have to say we could not have chosen better than we did with the Metropolitan Players. They provided a violin and piano for our ceremony, and the musicians were able to completely improvise when our Rabbi surprised us by having all of our guests sing the Priestly Blessing to the tune of The Beatles' "Let It Be", and it made the entire ceremony SO special!! Then, they provided a jazz trio for the cocktail hour that blended seamlessly with our museum setting where our guests wandered and enjoyed the art work. Lastly, and most importantly, we had an 8-piece band for our reception that absolutely KILLED IT!! Our guests did not sit down the entire night, which was possible because even during "breaks", at least one musician kept playing. For four straight hours we had non-stop live music, for a price that was beyond reasonable. Our gue... Read more

  • Erin, Drew, Adriane and every member of the Metropolitan Players are amazing. We got married earlier this month and had our reception at Lawrence Beach Club in Atlantic Beach, NY. The steel drums/keys at the cocktail hour, music at the reception, the vibe and TMP's help with keeping everything flowing was just incredible. All of our guests had nothing but great things to say about the band and we would highly recommend TMP's to anyone getting married. Erin was a pleasure to work with from day 1 and all of the songs we discussed in our meetings prior to the big day along with the vibe we were envisioning came to life. September 9th was the best day ever and TMP's were a huge part of it!

  • The Metropolitan Players are the absolute best band and we cannot recommend them enough! We couldn't have been happier with the entire experience working together. From the moment we reached out for our initial information request, we knew we had found the perfect band. Erin is incredibly kind, generous, responsive, and accommodating and made the preparation process smooth and enjoyable; she was on top of everything and provided fantastic suggestions. The band also knocked it out of the park and our wedding reception wouldn't have been the same with anyone else. Each musician is incredibly talented and together they brought so much energy to the reception. Everyone was out on the dance floor before the main course was even served! We couldn’t have been happier seeing our friends and family smiling and dancing together all night. It's been over a month since our wedding, and our friends and family continue to reach out to express how amazing the band was. They truly were one of the hi... Read more

  • The most important piece of our wedding for us was making sure we nailed the music! Shortly after we got engaged a family friend mentioned she had recently been at a wedding where the band was absolutely phenomenal – she said they had the entire wedding on the dance floor all night long. This was exactly what we were looking for! We looked up the Metropolitan Players as soon as we got home and really enjoyed all the videos online. After contacting via the form on their website, Erin, the bandleader promptly responded with all the info we needed and what our options were. She was extremely patient and knowledgeable giving us detailed answers to all of our questions and making us feel comfortable that everything was going to go smoothly. This included the day-of logistics, tent-size, music selections we made, the MC, and even the timeline of the reception. The band learned and played all the songs we had asked for. We had selected from there list (which is very long with lots of grea... Read more

  • Metropolitan Players played at our wedding on July 23, 2017 and they were absolutely amazing! They were extremely lively, played current music and kept our guests on the dance floor the entire time. Our guests are still talking about how great they were. They truly made our wedding a fairytale and we couldn't have pictured it without them.

  • From our first interaction with Erin to the last song at our reception, The Metropolitan Players were outstanding. We were impressed by the professional approach, clear communication, and incredible talent of this group. Every question was answered and our requests were all granted. If you are looking for the perfect group of musicians for your event, you've found it. The Metropolitan Players have completely changed the standard of what a "wedding band" should be. From the moment the band started playing, it felt as though we were at our own private concert. Our guests could not wait to get on the dance floor. During dinner, we had a variety of acoustic performances which created a wonderful atmosphere for our first meal as husband and wife. Our first dance was incredible. We fell in love with the version of Feel My Love by Jenn on Youtube and asked if she could be one of the vocalists on our Wedding Day. Not only was she there to sing our song, but her voice is something I will nev... Read more

  • The Metropolitan Players were the perfect band for our wedding and had our dance floor hopping all night! Erin was incredibly easy to work with and remembered all the details we requested. We even did a name pronunciation session with her two weeks before our wedding so that the band introduced everyone correctly. All our guests raved about how great the music was with a mix of oldies and newer pop songs (our friend is still raving about their version of I Feel It Coming by the Weeknd). We had a Jewish wedding and they played a Hora compilation and other Jewish songs really well. All the band members were fun and entertaining and the singers were fantastic at getting the crowd going. We highly recommend them for any occasion.

  • I cannot explain to you in words how amazing The Met Players are! They made our wedding truly amazing and special. Our guests were blown away with their energy and talent. The dance floor was packed all night. They are really great about being flexible with you on what you want your wedding to look like and what you want the vibe to be. We wanted a dance party from start to finish and they delivered from the very first hour dance set! We got the 11 piece band with all the horns and it made the night beyond special. You are crazy not to hire them! I hope to go to another wedding they are at! Tell them christina and Michael sent you!!! Love the met players and Erin!

  • I am the father of the Bride, and I must start off by saying that I was against a "wedding band" and for a DJ from the start. I was convinced by my daughter and future son-in-law that a band was the way to go "everyone is doing it". We set off and listened to countless bands online and then narrowed it down to 4-5 that we liked. We then went on to listen to those bands at their rehearsals. After listening to the Metropolitan Players and discussing our needs with Erin we booked them. I must mention that this was not your typical venue, it was a Barn wedding and it was the Barns first one at that. Needless to say we were a bit nervous about the acoustics of the venue and how would the band sound in it. Much to my surprise the band arrived at the venue several hours ahead of schedule to work out all the kinks and perform several sound checks. From the start of the Ceremony the band never stopped playing. I don't think there was a minute that there wasn't music playing . Most of our fr... Read more

  • What an amazing band! We loved them the moment we saw them in rehearsal but they impressed us so much more live at our venue. We had 4 straight hours of dancing and the band kept the dance floor full, the energy levels up and showed a diverse array of voices from the lead singers. Every guest, young and old, was on the dance floor. We have received so many compliments about how wonderful The Metropolitan Players were! Erin and Chelsea were great to work with and we felt like everything was coordinated seamlessly. Their organization and efficiency made this part of wedding planning stress-free! We would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to dance the night away at their wedding. An amazing band makes for an amazing wedding, and The Metropolitan Players did not disappoint!

  • Book the Metropolitan Players for your wedding! We were married in early June and are still jumping up and down with excitement over this band! My husband and I have very picky musical taste and we were beyond impressed with their performance on our wedding night! We can't thank the band enough for everything!!!! From the start, communications were easy! Erin, co-founder and manager, and Alex, our day of coordinator, were both very helpful and extremely professional. We felt cared for and catered to which is the way it should be when you're hiring a wedding vendor. My husband and I are both in our 40's and wanted to make sure that the music catered to our taste, our guest's tastes, and got everyone out of their seats for lots of dancing. We explained this to the band and they got it - they got it so well that it showed up and shined out the night of our wedding! They played a wide variety of music - exactly the type of music that we had requested. It was clear that they... Read more
