  • The Sterling Band is the best wedding band we've ever seen and we were so lucky to find them for our wedding. Jon worked with us every step of the way to make our wedding the best party possible. They really know how to keep the dance floor full the whole night, and they are all very talented. So many of our guests have commented on how great the band was. We've even had some friends ask for their contact info because they want to book them for their own upcoming weddings, and we can't wait to see them again! You won't regret booking the Sterling Band!

  • Jon and his team were top notch from start to finish. From the first meeting with Jon, he listened to our ideas and suggestions and was able to flawlessly play everything from The Beatles to Drake. There was no song we mentioned that they could not play. Jon and the bands enthusiasm, excitement and attention to detail made this process fun and painless. The band literally played our entire reception only taking breaks for speeches. Our guests were wowed by them and loved hearing a fun mix of old and new music. The dance floor was packed and rocking the entire night. Several friends have contacted us since our wedding to ask about A Sterling Band for their own events. If you want a rocking party hire this band! You will not be disappointed.

  • We loved having the Sterling Band at our wedding! These guys are insanely talented, can play virtually everything (have over 1,000 songs in their repertoire and will learn special requests if they don't already know a song), and have the crowd on its feet all night! They are the best decision we made during the wedding planning process. Our guests have not stopped telling us how much fun they had at our wedding thanks to the Sterling Band. The most recurring comment we've gotten is that they "are the best wedding band I've ever seen. They don't even sound like a wedding band!" Look at Sterling's website -- the events they've played speak for themselves and the audio files give a great sense of the quality of the sound. Hire Jon and team for an unforgettable night!

  • What is there to say that has not already been said in other reviews about Jon and this band? They were absolutely incredible. Our guests still talk to us about just how good the band was, certain songs they played, etc. We have heard from countless guests that this is "the best wedding band they have ever seen, bar none." The greatest evidence of the talent of Sterling was that some of these comments came after the first set, prior to dinner! There was a look of shock on our guests faces as they transitioned from our first dance song (which Sterling learned specifically for us) to a range of numbers that had the whole party on their feet. To us, Jon was more than just a band we hired; he became a friend. From our first consultation, where Jon met us in NYC to discuss our wedding and vision, to hour-long phone conversations days prior to our wedding, he was a consummate professional. The band plays such a wide repertoire of music that there is quite literally something for ever... Read more

  • Sterling was amazing!! We were referred to the band from a friend and they did not disappoint! Jon was incredibly easy to work with, he was always quick to respond and made sure to work in all of our requests throughout the reception. From the first song, the dance floor was packed and their energy was incredible! They “read the room” perfectly and our guests raved about the music. Highly recommend!!

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 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...

  • 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!
