Alright - you made it to the review page for Kazz Music. Congrats - you are now done looking for your wedding band! Just book them. They have gobs of talent, are super professional, are kind, and will make sure that your guests are dancing all night long. Joe set us up for... Read More intro meeting, helped us craft a reception timeline (something we had not done before), and then delivered a hell of a night. They played what the room needed, learned a special request song for us, and kept the room JAMMING. Why are you still reading? Book them!

You will not go wrong choosing Kazz Music for your event! Working with Joe and the entire group at Kazz Music was an absolute pleasure. Aside from the endless stream of compliments we have received from our guests on how fabulous the music was at the wedding, we also really... Read More enjoyed working with the band during the planning leading up to the event. Joe is extremely accommodating and helped us come up with a perfect timeline and playlist. He went out of his way to meet with us in person before the wedding, where we got to know each other a bit better, and could talk through all the events of the day. They also went out of their way to coordinate with our other vendors so that everything came together seamlessly. The band even learned our favorite song and was really able to read the room with the perfect set of music so that our guests were on the dance floor the entire night. In addition to the band, we also had Andrea (the band's pianist) play piano music at our ceremony which really added to the perfect day. I simply cannot recommend the Kazz Music Orchestra enough!

Like other reviewers here we wish we could add more stars for this band. Five stars just isn't enough! Kazz Music played for our daughter's wedding on July 15th. They were just amazing!

My family thought I was crazy to spend this much money on a band, but by the second hour of the reception they took it back! They made the night even more magical than we thought possible. The musicianship alone was worth the money, but add the showmanship and professionalism... Read More and they should be charging double. Thank you, Joe!

Kazz Music was professional with a personal touch. They are a group of talented musicians that know how to respond to their audience. They had all our guests dancing from the moment they started to play. Everyone complimented us on the amazing music and even were envious that... Read More they hadn't done the same at their own wedding! No other vendor for our wedding got as many compliments and the band is definitely one element that MUST work well. They were quick to answer questions and had an extremely thorough planning document that helped us prepare for the big day. Joe, the band leader, was always helpful and it felt great to rely on someone who was organized and incredibly easy going. It was important for my husband to have a group of truly talented musicians since he is one as well and I will never forget that look of absolute delight on his face the first time we heard them live. They made our wedding the fabulous and I owe them big time! I trusted them completely and never had to worry for one moment. They went above and beyond and I am truly grateful. I can't wait to hear them at the next wedding I attend!

Joe and Kazz Music were absolutely INCREDIBLE to work with and did the most amazing job at my wedding.

We couldn't be happier with Kazz music! They went out of their way to customize the setlist, learn new songs, and ensure the general vibe of the wedding was what we were looking for.

Can I add 5 more stars and give The Kazz band 10 stars??? They are really and truly the best band ever. Joe is a great planner, always in communication, easy to reach with any questions or concerns, worked perfectly with our day-of planner and is overall a really nice and... Read More genuine guy. The sound of the band is awesome. They have a huge music library to choose from and knock out every song. The two lead singers have an amazing chemistry, the guitarists, the drummers, and the Sax man (Joe) are absolute professionals who crush every note. I can't recommend Kazz band enough. Want your wedding to be a smash hit? Hire Joe and wear your dancing shoes!

I don't know where to start when I say Kazz Orchestra is the best wedding band ever. I'm a NYC bride that was getting married in Philly. I've been to a million high end weddings with all types of bands and knew I wanted a very specific type of band. I cared about one thing for... Read More my wedding, having a band that could rock the crowd with Motown and soul music. After tons of internet searching, I stumbled upon Kazz and knew they were our band. I talked to Joe and booked sight unseen without ever seeing them in person. Since Kazz specializes in the NYC market, I was so excited that they agreed to come to Philly. Kazz was a million times better than all the high end Philly bands we checked out. We used Kazz for the following, acoustic guitar for the ceremony, piano for the cocktail hour and the full 9 piece band with horns for the reception. From the moment I heard the acoustic guitar before walking into my ceremony I got the chills from how good the acoustic guitar was. For the reception, I almost started crying when I heard the band start to play before we walked into our reception because they were better than I could have ever imagined live. The two lead singers will BLOW YOUR MIND, seriously they are the most talented singers I've ever seen in a wedding band. I actually booked sight unseen after seeing the female lead singer sing Etta James At Last on a youtube clip. The band members are all so talented and make the band SO GOOD. Every single person at my wedding came up to me during the night and are still emailing/texting and calling saying how amazing the band was. I think it speaks for itself when 200 people (with half the crowd over 60) going nuts on the dance floor at midnight screaming for more music when it ended at 12:30am. People did not want to sit down and did not want the band to stop playing. I actually am guilty of not talking to a bunch of people at my wedding because I having way too much fun getting drunk and dancing up a storm. My feet hurt for days and I destroyed my dress acting like a nut job on the dance floor. My now husband at one point was on his back on the ground, on stage screaming at the crowd and getting serenaded by the band at midnight since it was his birthday! O, we're Jewish and Kazz did such an incredible Hora, they knew just the right amount to play. They also learned custom songs at our request which made our night. One of our best friends favorite song is Run Around Sue, we couldn't imagine not having it at the wedding. Kazz learned it, and even dedicated the song to him and got him on stage with the mic...our friends won't shut up about how amazing that moment was. I can't thank Joe and the entire band enough, seriously everyone in that band is amazing and so friendly. I really didn't care about planning a wedding, the little details or quite frankly anything except having the best band ever. Joe is a total pro, organized with all my vendors without needing anything from me and helped make my night perfect. My other vendors all reached out to say how amazing the band was and that Joe was incredible to work with. I'm a really touch critic, this is the best band and the best kept secret. They are incredibly affordable and quite frankly should raise their prices because they are the best. Book this band, trust me, just do it. THANK YOU SO MUCH KAZZ!

Kazz Music made our wedding everything we could haved dreamed of and more!

Kazz even surprised us with a last minute dedication song to our group! Our family and friends kept coming up to us to say how terrific the band is!

Kazz played their hearts out and truly wanted our guests to have the best night. In addition, Joe- Kazz Music's Director- is an incredible person who will go above and beyond to make sure that your wedding reception is perfect. We both live in the Hudson Valley and met multiple times in person before my wedding and exchanged many many emails about family preferences, details. etc. My husband and I are so lucky to have had this experience and have Kazz play at our wedding. It was an unforgettable night and I hope one of my friend's hires them to play one day so I can relive the magic!

I can't say enough about the awesomeness that is Kazz Music! HIRE THEM. I am a flutist and music teacher, so finding a great band was on the top of my priority list when wedding planning.

Joe was extremely professional, helpful and organized from the first day I contacted him, and genuinely excited to be a part of our wedding day.

They got our guests up on their feet, played a great variety of songs, from motown to swing and jazz, pop, contemporary, etc., and we had so many compliments on their behalf. I had total confidence in Joe and his ability to coordinate the flow of the reception and I'm so glad I did. He offered great advice along the way, and was flexible with some last minute changes.

From start to finish Kazz was absolutely wonderful. The communication was fast and clear, the care for the clients was always apparent, and we didn't have a single issue. The band travelled all the way to Vermont to play for us and graciously shared hotel rooms, set themselves... Read More up in a brand new place without questions, and then totally and completely rocked. They are so talented--from the piano at the ceremony to the Jazz at the cocktail hour to the mix of Motown and contemporary at the reception--it was all truly incredible at a great value. The band will learn a few new songs for you, and about a month before the wedding I heard 500 Miles on the radio. I hesitantly brought it up to Joe as a potential new song, but I was so excited when he loved the idea. I think everyone who hires Kazz should make sure they play that song. It was one of the standout moments of my night. They did it so well and it was so much fun. Beyond sheer talent, Joe and his band are great at reading the crowd and adjusting their song list accordingly. They make the whole experience very personal and it shows in the success of the night. Plus, Joe is incredibly organized and, as band leader, is largely in charge of keeping the night on schedule and flowing smoothly. You want someone like Joe doing that job. Even my wedding coordinator was impressed. She said he did half her job for her. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding band. We've had so many people ask for their contact information and I've passed it on to each of those people with glowing recommendation. I really hope that if you're considering hiring Kazz, you save yourself any further research and book them. I know you won't regret it.
