  • The New Monopoly was great. We chose them because of their wide array of oldie and current song selections, as well as learning our first dance song which was not on their list. They did not disappoint - playing with high energy and even playing an encore after they were supposed to finish. Because they had never played our venue, Doug went to scope out the place to ensure the band was familiar with the venue. Doug also met my wife and I a few days before the wedding to give us the comfort that the band was ready for the reception schedule and our preferred songs. We got the 8 piece group and highly recommend them!

  • The New Monopoly did an absolutely amazing job at our September 2018 wedding! We have gotten so many compliments from our friends and family on how amazing the band was!! They did a great job of reading the crowd and kept the dance floor filled all night! They played a great mix of oldies and new songs and everyone had so much fun! We worked closely with Doug leading up to our big day and he was always really helpful with any questions we had and he even met with us at our venue 2 months beforehand. We would definitely recommend them for your next event or wedding!

  • I can't say enough about Doug and New Monopoly! We hired them for our June wedding at the Belvedere in Baltimore. From the incredible degree of professionalism, to the willingness to make special accommodations such as helping my physically disabled brother hold the microphone for his toast, to the superior quality of the music and set list, these guys were the best! I would heartily recommend New Monopoly to any wedding couple.

  • Doug and the rest of the band were an amazing group to work with. Very responsive, very classy, and most of all, very talented. We highly recommend going with the New Monopoly for your wedding or any special event. We couldn't have been happier with them! Thank you Doug, Justin, and the rest of the band for making our day so memorable!

  • Can't say enough good things about this band. They ROCK. They have an incredible repertoire and really have a great way of bringing everyone together at the wedding. They followed our guidance with respect to songs or genres we did not want to hear, and did an incredible job learning a new song (in a short time frame) for the mother/son dance. They also rocked the genres we wanted to hear (classic rock, Motown and pop). Doug was so wonderful throughout the whole process - I really enjoyed chatting with him on the phone. The band itself was professional and super nice. We have had so many guests come up to us and ask WHO WAS THAT BAND? and have received so many complements as well. While they may not have as much as an online-in-your face presence as some of the other bands in this town, they are reasonably priced and SO GOOD. BOOK THEM. Thank you so much new monopoly!

  • First of all, if you are debating as to whether or not to have a band at your wedding, definitely go with a band. Reallocate your budget if you have to, you’ll be glad you did. Guests will not remember the food (unless it was really bad), they won’t remember the flowers, and they probably won’t remember the venue itself. But they will remember a top notch band and the fun they had dancing the entire reception to live music. As the father of the bride I looked for four primary characteristics in the band - professionalism, quality of sound, versatility, and pricing. The New Monopoly Band receives excellent grades across the board. They have a vast repertoire of styles and genres, contemporary and oldies, and sound just like the actual recordings. They can also provide lovely suitable ceremony music as requested. New Monopoly is comprised of the same musicians and vocalists at every event unlike some DC area bands that regularly substitute musicians resulting in uneven performa... Read more

  • New Monopoly is a great band. They played my wedding this past weekend and I could not have asked for a better wedding band. Doug and Justin were quick to respond when I had questions and were helpful through the entire process. They have a large array of songs that would fit any wedding! They kept the partying going, dancing never stopped. They played at my sister's wedding 3 years ago and we hope to see them again at some point. They were wonderful! Very professional.

  • The music at my daughter's wedding was phenomenal. Everyone was up, dancing, and having a wonderful time. Doug was so easy to work with, and very responsive to all of our questions. I would be delighted to use them again in the future.

  • The New Monopoly was AMAZING!!! My fiance felt very strongly about using a band, and boy are we found Doug and the New Monopoly! They had people dancing all night long to the very end, and didn't even take their last break because everyone was having so much fun and they didn't want to lose the energy. As a result we still had a pretty good amount of people on the dance floor until the bitter end. Their song selection is extremely broad and allowed us to choose a variety of music that appealed to everyone from my high school aged cousins to our parents friends. They also learned our first dance song, which was beautifully done. It is also great how quickly they learn what is hot at that time - one of my favorite moments was when they played "Blurred Lines" and I watched my 64 year old mother dancing with the 20/30something kids of her college best friends. We couldn't have had a better time that night and The New Monopoly absolutely helped make the night perfect.

  • Ok, if you're thinking of booking a band for you're wedding, first of all, do it. It makes all the difference. Second of all, you need to book New Monopoly. We had them play at our wedding and they made--MADE--the night. We sent them a song list and they honored it. Even played "I'm Too Sexy", which apparently hadn't been requested in 15 years. Does no one else sing that to their signinficant other after splitting a bottle of wine on a Friday night? Well, anyway. Old and young alike were dancing the night away, and people couldn't stop talking about the band. They have a great song list (over 500 songs) and will try to learn new ones if you request them in advance. When I felt like they were playing too many slow songs (probably because we requested a lot--stupid us), they immediately accommodated our request to nix all slow songs for the rest of the night. Booking the New Monopoly was the best decision we made for the wedding (other than marrying each other--awwww).... Read more

  • As the Father of the Bride, I had little to do with our wonderful wedding. That was all my wife. I only was allowed one task, and that was because I had a strong opinion that the band makes the wedding. I love it when I’m right! When you have a good group of folks that want to celebrate and party, you need a good band to get them there. Boy, The New Monopoly got us there and in a hurry! They were non-stop from the Father-Daughter dance until we were kicked out at closing time. Doug is an absolute professional, very inviting, patient and accommodating. He says what he does and does what he says. He and his band performed perfectly and as he promised. Doug was actually able to help with other areas of my Daughter’s wedding, as The New Monopoly is the house band for the Belvedere. This made everything go smoothly. In hindsight, this alone was worth every penny. It’s been seven months since the wedding and we just received another compliment for the ... Read more

  • When my husband (then finance) and I were looking online for a wedding band we felt that many seemed "cheesey" and then we came across The New Monopoly. We were literally dancing on the couch listening to them online. We called them immediately and are so happy we did. The band was awesome! They have a very extensive and diverse playlist. They are willing to learn one song not on their playlist for your wedding. Doug, the manager, is friendly, responsive, professional and just wants to make sure you are happy on your wedding day. Our guests LOVED the band and so did we. In addition, we found them to be very reasonably priced...especially for their size (8 musicians) and diversity.

  • I love this band! I hired them to do my ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and had them do the up-lighting at the venue too. They played non-stop great music - and they play all genres of music. They look like they really enjoy what they do too. My main contact was Doug who is wonderful and detailed. When the venue was a bit delayed on serving food he was able to improvise and move the night along seamlessly. I highly recommend this band!!

  • We got this 8-piece band for an unbeatable price! Justin's customer service was excellent. He kept us apprised of their progress learning our "off-list" first dance song and contacted us with all questions and confirmations well in advance. They offered MC services during the reception, and the lead female singer was outstanding. They kept everyone on the dance floor all night long, and we got a lot of compliments on the music. But for some reason, the band didn't play our cake cutting song (which made it anti-climactic), the "hora"/chair dance ran way too long, and many of our guests complained the music was too loud. All in all, I would definitely recommend The New Monopoly.

    responded with the following comments.

    Hello again and thank you for taking the time to review New Monopoly. We value all comments, both positive and negative, and use them to improve our service for future clients. I did want to address the concerns you mentioned, so I reviewed my notes and audio/video recordings of the evening to refresh my memory. Re: "Sugar Sugar" I did play this when requested, however, given the difficulty focusing guests on the cake cutting station, I elected to play the original recording, as I didn't want to further confuse anyone by having them think we were starting our dance set. I apologize if this was not the right call in the moment. Re: "the Hora" – the original notes I received requested a 15 min Hora, which I suggested we cut to 10 (about average). We ultimately played 8:10. Again, this was my judgment call, as the dance floor was still packed and without a definite signal, I didn't want to cut the medley any shorter given the initial requested time. Re: Volume - Our group has invested a great deal in maintaining the ability to control our volume for all audiences, and to that end, I make myself available at the front of the stage, as well as I station a second audio engineer directly opposite the band to provide two easy points where anyone may interact with us regarding any concerns. We did not receive any comments from the wedding party or guests related to volume during the evening, so we maintained the same volume as previous events we had performed at the venue. The venue has extremely strict volume limits, which we were constantly monitoring to assure we did not exceed their defined decibel level. In any case, I would have been happy to adjust any levels had I been aware of an issue. Again, thank you for making us aware of your concerns; please do not hesitate to contact us with any further questions/comments. Best, Justin L. - owner/ music director. The New Monopoly, LLC.

  • Doug and the new monopoly are a high energy blast of fun!!! My brother and his wife used them for his wedding and they made such an impression on all of the guests and I that we didn't think twice when it came to choosing a band for my own wedding!! Doug is responsive and makes you feel like he is just as excited for your big day as you are. The band members are extremely talented and enjoy playing!! They had every wedding guest on the dance floor the entire night. They have an incredible list of songs to choose from and I couldn't stop dancing They made our wedding the best it could possibly be. When people say a band makes a wedding, they are right and The New Monopoly absolutely made our wedding!
