  • The Cool Rulers made our wedding. They were the absolute best bad we've ever heard at a wedding and our guests were bummed when the wedding ended. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a real party at their wedding.

  • The Cool Rulers were absolutely incredible and we are SO happy we found them!!! We had a number of musicians at our wedding and quite a few older family members who generally don't dance. By the end of the night there wasn't a SINGLE guest who hadn't danced or made a comment to us about how fantastic the band was!! For weeks after the wedding, guests have been reaching out to us and telling us what an amazing time they had, thanks to the fantastic music. The Cool Rulers were the best band we could have hoped for and were super easy and friendly to work with. They were flexible and helpful and we would recommend them to anyone and everyone!! They MADE the party. Thank you, Cool Rulers!!

  • My wife and I have been to our fair share of dance parties in NYC over the years, from David Mancuso's Loft to underground warehouses and everything in between, and we probably wouldn't have met if it wasn't for our passion for music. Needless to say, finding a killer band for our own big party was one of our highest priorities. After doing some pretty painstaking research on all the options near and far, it was abundantly clear that there was really only one option: The Cool Rulers. Aside from the unmistakable talent, what really sets them apart is their chemistry as a band and the fact that many of them are friends who have played together for many years. As a band leader, Charles is really first class. He's super responsive, and did everything he could to help us achieve our vision for the band's performance. When we decided to add a 2nd vocalist about 6 weeks out from our date in peak event season, it wasn't surprising that many of their usual singers had already taken on ... Read more

  • My wife and I highly recommend The Cool Rulers for your wedding. Our dance floor was brimming from start to finish and our friends and guests are still raving about the band (as are we). They are a seriously talented group of musicians with a versatile playlist and the ability to read the room perfectly. They were accommodating with our song requests and even helped us play music through their speakers before the ceremony and during breaks. Our experience with the booking aspect was also great. Charles and Aaron are responsive, helpful and professional. We’re so grateful for the memory The Cool Rulers gave us!

  • To you recently-engageds looking for your wedding band: your search is over. Just hire The Cool Rulers. From our first phone call, when Charles explained the band’s background and we discovered a mutual love of Hailu Mergia, I knew this band would get what we were after: a great time, with a little something special and unusual. The band invited us and several couples to attend a practice set, which they absolutely blew through, and we hired them shortly afterwards. Working with the band was straightforward: Charles took point on communication, asking what we liked, helping us pick the right number of band members (we chose 8, which was perfect for our venue), and sending us a song list to mark our must-plays and don’t-plays. He also suggested an Afrobeat cocktail hour, a special talent of this band, which was so fun — we highly recommend this option! My wife and I wrote our own ceremony, including several weird music cues that the band nailed perfectly, even learning a son... Read more

  • My husband was adamant from the start of wedding planning that we had to have a live band at our wedding. I did a lot of research online and when I came across the Cool Rulers and listened to their music...I was sold. There was nobody else that compared to them. It also took 0 convincing for my husband to be on board. He loved them. Charles was very easy to work with and so kind. He listened to some of the ideas we had for music for the day of the wedding and even threw out some really great suggestions that we hadn't even considered. The Cool Rulers played acoustic guitar at our ceremony, jazz at our cocktail hour and then we had the full band for the wedding reception. THEY WERE INCREDIBLE!!! They blew us away. Not only do they all have great personalities...the instrument solos, the women hitting those high notes, walking into the crowd singing to our guests...our friends and family went nuts over it. They were so fun and to this day whenever our wedding gets brought up everyone ta... Read more

  • Our our wedding night we were thrown a massive curveball when our wedding tent flooded after a massive rainstorm. Without missing a beat, the Cool Rulers rallied with us as we moved the party into the living room of the hotel. They were great sports in a tough situation and our guests all had an absolute blast rocking out with them. They also custom learned an intro song for our wedding party which was a great touch. The band is incredibly talented with old school and new school songs and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great reception party!

  • All I can say is - WOW! These guys are the real deal. My husband and I are both musicians, so we wanted an epic band for our wedding. The Cool Rulers are exactly that. Their talent and professionalism is through the roof. You seriously won't find a better wedding band than this crew. Also, their song repertoire is FULL of fan favorites, so get ready, because you'll have to drag your guests off the dance floor. Thanks for an amazing night. You made our wedding a dream come true!

  • We had a fabulous experience having the Cool Rulers play our wedding at Liberty Warehouse this past May!! They brought down the house and had the entire wedding party (more than 200 people) up on the floor dancing the entire evening. There were so many people on the floor that we almost ran out of room! They coordinated a few custom songs that we requested and played during our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Throughout the planning process Charles was always there to answer questions and offer suggestions. We have heard so many rave reviews from our friends and family that it was an unforgettable band with the best music. We could not have asked for a more perfect band to play our wedding and will be recommending the Cool Rulers to all of our friends! Thank you Cool Rulers from making the evening so special and allowing the two of us to dance the night away as we celebrated the first night of marriage!

  • DO not wait another minute.. they made our wedding. Easy, professional, and legitimately the best band we've ever heard live. HIRE THEM. Our guests all commented on how incredible they were and we could not have asked for a better band to get the party started!

  • What an amazing band! From the beginning they took our song requests, they created an amazing live set and really got a feel for what we liked and vibed out the room. Any time people mention our wedding, especially family we haven't seen for some time, the very first thing they all mention is our band. They got all of our guests on their feet dancing and kept the vibe and mood lively. We couldn't be happier!

  • This is THE band. My husband and I (and most of our guests) are musicians, so the music throughout the night was a very important part of our wedding. Not only have The Cool Rulers mastered the flow/energy of the party, but they're musically spot on. The instrumental solos and vocal chops are top-of-the-line. Bring a change of shoes, because you will be on the dance floor all night long. Charles was so easy to work with—even our coordinator and venue told us how much they loved working with him. The band can easily tailor its size to fit the room and your budget, and they provide great options for ceremony/cocktail hours if needed. Hire this band, and please invite us.

  • The Cool Rulers were amazing. We fell in love with them at a friend's wedding and they made ours incredibly special. The music was fantastic but they were also incredibly communicative, flexible and fun to work with. Couldn't recommend any more highly.

  • We worked with the usual dozen or so vendors throughout our wedding and The Cool Rulers were by FAR the most easy to work with, responsive, and high quality of them all. Also, they completely rock. My husband and I love to dance and knew we wanted to spend the entire night on the dance floor, so these guys were the perfect fit. We actually found them at our friends' wedding a year before ours and immediately agreed we needed to have them at our wedding. Charles is a great band leader, and really took the time to learn about our style. They arrived early and managed themselves and were ready to go without any issues on the day of. They even provided us with a playlist to play during dinner and during set breaks. Full service. Can't recommend them enough!

  • CALL OFF THE SEARCH - the greatest wedding band in the history of wedding bands has FINALLY been found. Acting as gatekeeper for The Cool Rulers, Charles was especially wonderful to work with. His correspondence was timely, informative and kind. We felt very well taken care of and immediately at ease with his recommendations and expertise at elevating the music, atmosphere and how to maintain overall tone for the night. Please trust this man and let him do what he does, that is the real magic of TCR. After exchanging some information about us, our preferences and requests, Charles took care of the rest. He laid out the playlist, customized transitions and even talked us into a few of the songs we put on our do not play list - HE WAS RIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING - so, don't fret and take the leap with him. TCR began warming up during our first look/photos when no one else was around and we were so impressed and delighted that while we knew we made the right choice - our expectations had... Read more
