  • 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 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.

  • 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!!!

  • 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!!

  • 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

  • Wow! A Sterling Band knows how to bring a rocking party! Originally we were nervous to go with a band that we weren’t able to see ahead of our wedding, but A Sterling Band came highly recommended by a close friend so we decided to book them. Choosing A Sterling Band was the best wedding decision we made! From our first interaction, Jon was extremely responsive and accommodating. He and the band leader, Keith, were always willing to jump on a call or meet in person. The most amazing thing about the band is their ability to play any genre. Each band member is extraordinarily talented so they were able to play all night without any breaks. Our dance floor was completely packed! We have received lots of inquiries from our wedding guests about the band; we even have friends who booked them for their upcoming wedding after seeing them at ours. We can’t wait to work with the band again in the future!

    responded with the following comments.

    Wow Rebecca So nice to hear from you. Hope you and Rob are healthy and well Your house party wedding was on an exquisite site(your home) and from Keith tells me was wall-to wall partying. Thanks again for the kind words! Best Jon Hanser

  • 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 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!
