  • I first heard MIXTAPE cover band at my friend Claire’s wedding. My now-husband and I liked them so much that we asked them to travel down to Baltimore to play at our wedding! We love that they don’t just play those classic songs you hear at every wedding, but also play covers of the music we grew up with and want to dance to. They are wonderful musicians - everyone loved them! Melanie was awesome to work with. She is super organized and took care of everything, including things I forgot to think of such as having a microphone for speeches. She also has a great sense of humor and helped smooth over some awkward transitions - like when we decided we wanted to have all of our guests cram together for one giant photo. MIXTAPE made our wedding a great party - we’re so happy they were able to play for us!!

  • When we booked the 8 piece band for our September wedding at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Melanie was already booked, but Amy was amazing at our wedding! The band totally rocked it. The guests were dancing the entire night and everyone was commenting on how great they were. They allowed us to choose 5 definite songs that they would learn for us- and then we customized the rest of our set list based on their extensive list. Melanie was amazing to work with. She went over multiple revisions of our set list and gave us good advice about how to balance the music so that it wouldn’t be too alternative heavy :) She is professional, kind, responsive, and detail oriented. She kept us on track all year without overwhelming us. This band is the real deal - they rocked everything from Beauty and the Beast, Tupelo Honey, MGMT, to Toto Africa, to Give it Away by Red Hot Chili Peppers. I was hesitant to pick RHCP since they are my absolute favorite and I didn’t think a cover band could do it, bu... Read more

  • Melanie and her band were absolutely amazing at our wedding, to the point where I wish we had recorded their performance so I could watch it back and experience them again! As a huge music fan, the one thing I had planned in my mind for my wedding as a kid was the music I wanted played, but I had never seen a wedding band before that played anything other than cheesy / top 40 music before. I assumed I was going to have to get a DJ to get the musical experience I envisioned (and make the playlist for them!) Luckily my husband went to a wedding a few years prior where Mixtape was the band and managed to convince me to book them without having seen them live before (their online videos don't do them justice - they are even better in person!) Working with Melanie was a great experience from start to finish, and I'm so glad we booked them. She helped us out last minute in a pinch when our venue dropped the ball on providing a sound system for the ceremony and the entire event ran... Read more

  • I came across MIXTAPE after a call with my day-of coordinator The Privilege is Mine around February last year where I was saying how I was just going to settle for a DJ because I could not find a non-cheesy NYC wedding band within my budget or for that matter at all! It was so frustrating trolling through YouTube watching wedding band after wedding band that all sounded the same, with the same repertoire. So when TPIM gave me the details for the wedding band she personally had at her wedding she swore to me that they literally brought down the house on her special day and she did not break her promise. MIXTAPE were not only the best wedding band I had heard and that most of my guests personally messaged me about to tell me that they had ever heard, they were incredible to work with prior to the day. Melanie and I exchanged emails throughout the year and she answered all my questions in detail. She was HONEST with me and is a complete expert at what she does. Instead of just ... Read more

  • We originally hired a DJ and then changed our minds; we couldn't have been happier. Johnny with The Mixtapes was professional and very responsive from Day One. All of our favorite songs were played, the band was professional and courteous, and they just put on an awesome show. Hiring them to play at our wedding reception was the one of the best wedding decisions we made and I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone planning an event that you want to ROCK!

    responded with the following comments.

    Hey Cory, I'm so glad you had a great wedding but it looks like you got the wrong MIXTAPE, we definitely did not play your wedding! Unfortunately, this is what happens when bands take the trademarked names of established national bands for their own use. Congrats on your wedding and all the best, Melanie MIXTAPE

  • We used Melanie and Mixtape for our wedding and are still completely blown away by how exceptional they were! The dance floor was packed the entire night, and so many guests came up to us that night and the next day saying how amazing the band was. The rocked every song and had all of our guests moving and having an amazing time. We also used their musicians for our ceremony music and cocktail hour (bluegrass trio), and they were perfect for those too. Melanie was a dream to work with, and made it all so easy and painless. I would book them again in a heartbeat and you should too!

  • If you want something unique and personal, look no further. Friends and family are still raving about Melanie and Mixtape. Melanie is easy-going, thorough, and professional, which made working with her comforting and pleasant. Our ceremony music was top-notch and beautiful, and our party was amazing because of the playlist. I have no reservations recommending Mixtape!

  • Stop reading and hire Mixtape right now. Mel and the gang will elevate your wedding to legendary status. We had two musts for our wedding, great food and music. Finding good food was easy but finding a good band, not so much. As soon as we watched Mixtape's promo videos we immediately said book them! Mel was a pleasure to work with and she gladly stuffed the gang into a van to play in Philadelphia for our wedding. They are professional, talented, personal, and just plain amazing. Our guests are still talking about how amazing the band was. Thanks Mel and the band!

  • Lauren and the rest of MIXTAPE were absolutely AMAZING. Now that the dust is starting to settle over the magic that happened, my wife and I both keep finding ourselves reliving the music, and especially the dance party. Everyone -- from my grandmother who can't stop talking about her special dance -- to our parents and siblings to our friends -- everyone is stopping us in our tracks to exclaim how amazing the band was. The dance floor was packed from beginning to end, and my grandma pulled up a rocking chair and held court in the back corner of the dance floor just so she could listen and enjoy the music, well past her bedtime. Nobody, especially us, wanted it to end! Though we coordinated with the band's leader, Melanie, she was already booked for another show that night, but in her place she sent the other half of the band, who were all outstanding. We were beyond thrilled to have Lauren and the other 7 crazy talented band members make the trek up to our summer camp wedding in the... Read more

  • We love Mixtape!!! Melanie and her band absolutely KILLED our reception and their performance is the number one thing our guests have complimented us on since the wedding. They have such a wide repertoire and we loved that we got to choose our "must play songs" from their song list. They also learned two songs we requested just for our wedding! Melanie is also amazing - both as a band leader and person. We had a great time hanging out with her when we met to discuss our wedding, and at the actual wedding! Book them - you won't regret it!!

  • Hire this band. Mel and Mixtape are incredible in every way. Music was very important to our wedding. We wanted a band that would play our favorite music, but also appeal to the older crowd as well with classics and some Top 40. It felt like every single person at the wedding came up to us and said something along the lines of “This band is amazing!,” or “Where did you find these guys?!” We were getting calls/texts/emails days later commenting on how awesome the music was. They learned “All Your Favorite Bands” by Dawes and “Now and Forever” by Carole King for us and absolutely nailed both. Additionally, when you hire Mixtape, it makes the wedding planning process about 100x easier. Mel is an absolute professional and just fantastic overall human being. In addition to getting an insanely talented musician, you’re also getting a wedding planning expert. She had every single detail accounted for, including many things we ourselves had not thought of – sh... Read more

  • I could not recommend Mixtape more strongly. Without exaggeration, almost every single guest at our reception told me that they absolutely rocked. The set list Mixtape designed for us was perfect, they nailed our ceremony music (the only part of the night that made me cry), and they even indulged a couple of requests, including learning a first dance song we had picked months earlier, which wasn't part of their existing repertoire. On a personal level, they were also a total pleasure to work with at every step along the way. I can't say enough good things!

  • We used MIXTAPE Cover Band for our daughter's bat mitzvah party and they were a complete joy to work with. I was worried that it would be difficult to provide live music which would appeal to the wide age range of the guests, from 13-83 years old. But Melanie not only gave me great confidence prior to the event, but during the event the band really knocked it out of the park! There was something for everyone-- they played a mix great mix of ballroom oldies, current popular music and even some broadway show tunes that my daughter and her friends loved! There was always a group on the dance floor at all times and everyone was so sad when they announced it was the final song. Hire this talented band if you want to infuse your party with energy and to break away from the typical party DJ.
