  • We have nothing but incredible things to say about this band. They are not just talented, but were so effortless to work with. Jon made sure the night went as smoothly as possible. He read the room extremely well and knew when and what to play at all times. Our guests came up to us all night telling us how incredible the band was! But they were more than just a band. Jon made sure the party was nonstop, seamlessly transitioning from speech to speech, dance to dance, and even stayed aware of where the camera and videographer crews were to ensure they caught all the action. We really can’t say enough about Jon and his band.

  • Wow ! Thank-you Jon and Sterling Band! We had our wedding recently w the Sterling Band and Sterling Events and from wall to wall and "cover-to cover" these guys and gals TOTALLY get what its like to have an unforgetable party. We had a background where our wedding required dancing and celebratory music that was some Spanish (I have a Cuban and Puerto Rican background)some English and even a fair amount of what they call "leiberdich" Jewish music... They blew away our expectations ,which were already high! Their enthusiasm,skill and fun MADE the night one of those weddings our families will talk about for years. The rocked ! From Sinatra-Luis Fonzi,Marc Anthony ,Celia Cruz, Blink 182, Spice Girls Beatles Biggie Kanye Whitney Travis Scott Black Keyes Beastie Boys, Sean Paul, Calvin Harris, Billie Eilish, Lizzo and Demi and Whitney...and a Long Simcha -Hora Dancethat was amazing mixing from Israeli pop into Marc Anthony ! We danced all night and even overtime while Band ne... Read more

  • The Sterling Band is amazing! Jon was incredibly easy to work with and takes so much pride in what he does! He’s so incredibly enthusiastic and makes you feel like you’re the only wedding/party he’s working with. Having the Sterling Band at our wedding felt like going to a concert that was just for us! They learned our first dance song and multiple other requests for the evening. Our guests loved them and were chanting for one more song at the end of the night!

    Hey Jess thanks for the very kind words! Was truly a very rocking and special night! Congrats again Jon

  • Jon and his crew absolutely crushed their performance and made our wedding night perfect. From start to finish they rocked out and got everyone out of their seats and on the dance floor. We loved how they tailored the song selection and performance perfectly for each moment of the night. Jon was very enthusiastic, reliable and easy to communicate with. Jon went above and beyond to ensure that everything was nothing short of spectacular. I would HIGHLY recommend the Sterling Band to anyone who loves live music and wants a wedding to remember. I’ve already had multiple guests tell me they want to book them for their upcoming weddings! Thanks again for everything!

  • I found A Sterling Band randomly on a Blog. I met with 3 bands and they were my top choice by far. My husband and I met with Jon and the decision was easy after that. Then Covid hit and we were unsure of what we would do. Jon was understanding and flexible and we changed from an 8 piece band to a 4 piece band. Since our wedding turned into a dinner party it was great to have the band as entertainment. They were really so good that people were getting in trouble for getting out of their seats and dancing so people started dancing in their chairs! Our guests had great things to say about them. Also, they really did a great job of picking out music - I gave Jon the vibe we wanted and he ran with it! Thanks so much for helping make our day so great!!!

  • I can't say enough wonderful things about Jon and the band. We were among the many couples who had to postpone their wedding (twice!) due to the pandemic and are so appreciative of Jon and the band sticking with us through all of the craziness. It has been over a week since our wedding and our guests are STILL talking about how awesome the band was - and we are too! The only time we saw our guests sitting down was to eat - and when they were done they were right back up on the dance floor. Trust me, you don't want to miss out on this band.

    Thanks Allie U and Theo deserved the Best! Long wait was certainly worth it...Great celebration! Best wishes Jon Hanser Sterling Band

  • 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 love a Sterling Band, thank you for everything

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!
