  • STOP WHATEVER YOU ARE DOING AND BOOK A STERLING BAND RIGHT NOW!!! They are absolutely FANTASTIC!!! I found them by chance by googling best bands in NYC and I am sososososo happy that I did! My wedding was a nonstop party with a PACKED dance floor the entire time! I chose them because they promised VARIETY and boy did they deliver!!!! They played so many different songs- anything I asked for from rap to rock to country. They brought the house down!!! I would book them again and again. Jon was an absolute pleasure to work with. He came to our house and essentially performed for us in our living room. He has so much energy and passion for his work- its contagious!!! I'm telling you- if you want the most perfect, fun, kickass wedding that guests will be talking about for a long time afterwards you better book them now!!! We love a Sterling Band, thank you for everything

  • We hired Sterling Band for our wedding in August 2019 and could not have been happier with the decision! Jon was incredible to work with throughout the process - super accommodating, responsive, and energetic. He assured us that he would "read the room" and keep the dance floor filled - and the band did just that! We would absolutely recommend hiring Sterling Band for your wedding!

  • The Sterling Band played at our wedding for 140 guests in July. The Sterling Band normally plays for larger weddings so we worried our guests wouldn't all be in to the band but boy were we wrong - literally our guests danced all night long thanks to Jon and his crew. Everyone was up dancing and when they played their last song for the night everyone started chanting for them to play one more song. Jon and the Sterling Band came highly recommended to us - but never meeting Jon before or hearing the band live we were nervous to book them. We did and face timed with Jon multiple times and he blew the night away. We guarantee they will be the highlight of your wedding and all your guests will be talking about how amazing they are. They play a fantastic variety of music that everyone loves. I didn't know this the night of the wedding but my friends later on told me they requested multiple songs and the band played literally every one. They were so impressed. A Sterling Band is worth every p... Read more

  • We are so glad that we chose Sterling Events for our wedding! The band is incredibly talented and did a great job keeping our party going all night long. We have received so many compliments from family and friends about how Sterling was the best band that they have heard. Jon was very flexible in meeting with us and FaceTiming with us to answer all of our questions leading up to the big day and even learned 3 new songs for us, one of which was a last minute request. We would highly recommend choosing Sterling for your wedding!

  • The Sterling Band brought the house down. Every one of our guests was raving about them after our wedding. Jon brings the energy to every interaction he has - you'll see what we mean when you meet him! He listens to what you're looking for and is open and honest about what they can bring to the table - which is EVERYTHING. We ended up booking Sterling for a 2-piece instrumental for the ceremony (guitar + piano were gorgeous together), a 3-piece jazz trio for our cocktail hour (New Orleans Jazz - epic.), and a 9-piece band for our reception (which rocked, straight up). We had a huge variety of music - from a Alannis in our 90's set to a traditional Jewish hora - and these guys nailed every genre. When the band took a quick break to eat (which is standard!) they left one person to sing acoustic, and it was perfect. We can't recommend the Sterling Band enough!

    Hi Anna thank you so much for your eloquent and passionate review We had an awesome time as well But am thrilled to hear about how you feel. We loved the Nola Vibe and and the great variety of music imcluding all those 90s-2000 rock and Hip Hop classics. What fun it was! I look forward to seeing you and Isaac again! Best best wishes Jon

  • We booked Jon and A Sterling Band for our ~200 person NYC wedding after watching the online videos and meeting Jon in person. He made us feel at ease from the first meeting. Jon is a talented musician and a true professional- responsive and energetic with a vast amount of musical and event management knowledge. He gave us tips that delivered on filling the dance floor all night. The band was incredibly talented with an amazing range...they performed the latest songs (High Hopes, Better Now, Lite it Up-Major Lazer) as well as classics. We received compliments from friends and family members all evening. From the ceremony to the cocktail hour all the way past midnight...Jon and A Sterling Band delivered on our high expectations and made the night memorable for everyone. We give them our highest recommendation for your wedding or event. -Lance and Mackenzie

  • Once again Jon and his crew exceeded all expectations. Desperately in need of last-minute lighting for our New Year's Eve Fundraiser, we gave Jon a call. Next thing we knew, not only did we have a room decorated with lights but also a 6-piece band! And that was just the beginning. We kicked off the New Year with a 2-hour, ultra-diverse, set. It couldn't have gone better. We highly recommend.

    thanks Holden...looking forward to partying w you n crew again! You throw amazing events! What a New Year s Eve party...and whst great work you did for fighting Cancer! Best Jon

  • Our biggest wedding challenge was finding a band that could please a multi-generation-span of guests, keep them on the dance floor continuously all night long AND authentically deliver the Latin pop hits for a significant portion of the evening, due to the bride’s Puerto Rican heritage. While a lot of bands made promises about their Latin music capabilities, their repertoire really just included the pop-crossovers that we hear on the radio today. But Jonathan and the NY Sterling band were the real deal. Jonathan has deep experience and tremendous musical knowledge in the Latin genre, and worked with us to secure some additional players that would allow the band to seamlessly transition from American to Latin style music, enjoyed by all. They mastered a few specific “must plays” in Spanish and English for our first dance, and the dance floor was LIT the whole night long, not just with the young guests or the Puerto Rican guests, but all were feeling the vibe and the joy of th...

  • Jon and his band were LEGENDARY! Being huge concert/rock people, we put Jon and his band through the ringer with certain song requests and boy did they come through!!! They made our setlist come alive and helped us produce the musical masterpiece that we had envisioned. Additionally, they learned any song that we requested and transformed our ceremony into the grand musical event that left the crowd wanting more! These incredible musicians are our go to- we love them and would highly recommend them to everyone! Cheers!

  • The Sterling Band made our wedding everything we hoped for and more! Wedding planning can be stressful, and The Sterling Band made every part of the planning process exciting and easy. We were looking for a band that was able to play all types of music, and they understood exactly what we wanted. They were the only band that we spoke to (and we spoke to a lot!) who were able to discuss music with us, and really listened to what we liked and were able to deliver. They were happy to learn our friends' band's song and executed it so well! Our wedding was such a blast as the band really nailed it. They really brought the party, our friends can't stop talking about how much fun the night was and asking us, "Where'd you find the band?!"

  • Sterling Band did an amazing job at our wedding! When it came to wedding planning, our top priority and concern was that the music would be fantastic and our guests pack the floor. When my wife and I first met Jon, we could tell by his enthusiasm that he and his band were going to bring that to the dance floor, and they totally nailed it. Our guests have been raving about the professional music quality and energy, by the end of the night our feet were killing us from all the dancing! What we appreciate the most was how willing and open the band was towards learning special requests. They knew how to read the audience with all the music we requested and kept the party going. Can't thank you enough Sterling Band!

    Thanks so much Ostap...u guys were pretty amazing yourselves...What an eclectic night of music it was! Best wishes J

  • Thanks to Sterling, our wedding reception was legit the best party ever. There was not a single moment when the dance floor wasn't packed. In fact, our only regret of the whole wedding is that the dance floor couldn't;'t have been larger! Jon is a great communicator and made us feel confident and comfortable from day 1. He understood our vibe and vision for the wedding and the band translated it perfectly. They read the crowd throughout the night and knew how to keep the party going all night long. This band is SO beyond talented, words cannot express how good of a party they created. Other than choosing to marry my husband, Sterling was the best decision I made for the wedding. Thank you Sterling, seriously thank you!

    THank-you Stacey and Mark for your very kind words...SO happy for both of you! Best best wishes Jon

  • Jon and his band are the most talented group I have ever heard! Their variety in music is incredible and they will learn a song if they don't already know it! I had heard them play at two other weddings before my own and I knew that when it came time for my own wedding, I would book them immediately. I actually chose my wedding date based on their availability! Every one of my guests kept commenting on how incredible the band was during and after the wedding! They know how to throw a party to remember!

    Hi Jess, THank-you for the kind words and warm regards to you and Jameson and your wonderful families. Indeed a party to remember. Looking forward to seeing you both again in not to distant future. J

  • We are so happy we chose Sterling Events for our wedding band! Jon and his band kept our 200 guests dancing all night long and wanting more after the last song. They played a variety of music, from Springsteen to top 40, and rocked every song. Sterling read the room and kept the party going! They exceeded our expectations, and had our guests raving about them even after the wedding. We highly recommend Sterling Events, and could not be happier with their performance! Our wedding was a blast, thanks to Jon and his band!
