We can't say enough about how great Live Music Pros was. My husband and I agreed that having a great band was the priority for our wedding reception, and spent countless hours and days researching bands. Atomic Funk had incredible reviews and promos, and we saw them live and... Read More were blown away. On our wedding day, they lived up to all of the hype. They were amazing! The wedding guests were on the dance floor all night, and begging for more as the wedding came to an end. They played a perfect set of song choices that catered to our audience, learned songs we asked for perfectly, and brought an overall energy to the night that exceeded our expectations. Cassondra, Joel and Chris were exceptional singers and performers. We highly recommend this band and company!

Ever since we saw Live Music Pros at a showcase in Brooklyn, my husband and I could not wait to hear them play at our wedding. We were blown away by their performance at the showcase, but nothing compared to having them play at our wedding. We had a nine piece band and they... Read More were simply incredible. We had Joel, Brandi, and Justin as vocalists at our wedding and I would pay money to see any of them perform again. Their playlist is the perfect mix of old and new (something for everyone), and they had everyone dancing (even the people who claimed they weren't really dancers). Their energy and excitement really shone through, and we could not recommend them more. If music and dancing is important to you, you need to have Live Music Pros perform at your wedding!

Atomic Funk Project is the best wedding band out there. Hands down. They absolutely made our wedding the best party any of our guests have ever been to.

Cannot say enough positive things about this band. They had everyone dancing the entire time! Between the quality of the outstanding vocals, their wonderful musicians (especially horn section) and lights, it felt like you were at a concert! They even took time to learn how to...

Everyone kept asking us where we found them! True professionals - highlight of the wedding and best wedding band we've heard.

We had the Atomic Funk Project for our wedding in August 2016. AFP ismuch more than a wedding band. AFP is worth every penny! When looking for a band, we set out to find someone that played the New York music scene and we found them one night playing at BB Kings. They are... Read More extremely talented professional musicians who kept everyone dancing all night long. We had an eclectic mix of music and AFP came through playing all of the musical genres. The bride wanted Motown and 70s disco and the groom wanted more modern music, including hip hop and the Black Eyed Peas. People could not get enough of the music and did not leave the dance floor. The band was extremely professional and good in interacting with all of the guests. My sister and cousin went up to sing the Bee Gees "Staying Alive" and the lead singer was great about having them on stage. The lead singer came on to the dance floor to join the dancing. They were great about taking a request for an encore song. They did an amazing rendition of "A New York State of Mind." We still have guests raving about the band several months later and they keep saying how that was the best band ever at a wedding. Everyone liked them so much, that a group of friends and family want to go see AFP play at BB Kings one night.

From the second our first song concluded all of our guests did not budge from the dance floor. Live Music Pros exceeded any expectations I could have had for our wedding band. My husband and I, our parents and guests all do not have enough wonderful things to say about them!

It was an absolute pleasure working with the band. I wanted to incorporate Star Wars songs into the procession but my wife wanted classical strings and Canon in D. Erik took it upon himself to help us rearrange the songs to suit both of our needs and it turned out absolutely... Read More amazing! Everyone loved it because it was subtle but noticeable. The reception performance by the full band was absolutely amazing as well. I wasn't sure if Motown music would suit everyone's taste, but the dance floor was packed from start to beginning. The performers were engaging and even came out to the dance floor to interact with us. Five months later, our friends are still talking about how great the band was and it's all thanks to Steve, Erik and rest of the team! Thank you all again!

In a nutshell, Atomic Funk Project was the most praised aspect of our wedding. The management was easy to work with, and the band brought serious musical talent. Highly recommended. Musically, the band's expertise is in motown, funk, and classic pop, but they also threw in some... Read More more recent pop hits and nailed those as well. They did a great job sticking to the covers as they were originally performed by the greats. In terms of showmanship, they did an excellent job reading the room and the moment to play the appropriate songs and to keep people on the dance floor. They brought high energy and just the right volume. Administratively, the band was super professional and easy to work with. They made the planning of the songlist/schedule and coordination with our venue simple. As a groom who is very into music, and who was in charge of music, it was a great source of pride when practically every single guest came up to me and told me that the band was the highlight of the night -- besides the ceremony of course :) In summary, book Atomic Funk Project with confidence, knowing that they will make the party amazing, fun, and unforgettable.

Electric Pop Project was FANTASTIC. They were professional, courteous, and followed every single direction that we gave them -- and then some! They played our ceremony, cocktail reception, music during dinner and dancing of course. All of which were beautifully timed and... Read More orchestrated. Our first dance "You are the Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne was perfect. They had a sound engineer walking the room the entire time we were dancing to make sure the sound quality was on point. My husband and I our entire family and friends were dancing ALL night long. Every song they played raised the energy more and more. From Party in the USA to RESPECT. If you are looking for an elegant ceremony and cocktail reception and then to rock all night, hire Electric Pop Project // Live Music Pros.

100% worth the money. Definitely pricey, but if you want an incredible band that will keep your entire wedding dancing all night this is who you want. They were not only incredible the day of, but they were one of the easiest vendors I worked with while planning our wedding.... Read More Steve was so responsive and patient with all of my questions. We had them play for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. They helped the whole day run so smoothly. I do not have words to describe how talented the band is or how much fun they made our wedding. The entire dance floor was packed all night, during shout I was positive we were going to break the dance floor. Through out the night I was asked constantly about them, "where did you find them!", "this is the best band I have ever heard", "it sounds like I'm listening to a recording but way better", "I need to have them for my wedding/my daughters/my sons wedding", "Every song is incredible", and so on... At the end of the wedding we chanted for an encore and they kindly obliged with one last song. After that was over there was an actual line to shake some of their hands, say thank you, and ask for their cards. I've never seen that at another wedding. If you have it in the budget, do yourself a favor and book Atomic Funk Project, you will not be disappointed! I wish I had the option of attaching a video so everyone could see and hear the show they put on.

During our reception the dance floor was packed from the beginning of the night until the very last song. The entire band is so talented, enthusiastic, and fun!! They read the crowd so perfectly and had my 5-year old nephew up to my 90 year old family-friend out on the dance floor. The DJ at the after party was awesome! No one was ready to end the night and he truly kept the party going! He played everything that guests requested and made sure that everyone was having a good time.

The band was also very interactive; one of our guests pulled the lead female vocalist on to the dance floor and she went along with it, dancing and singing the whole time! The band was also incredibly accommodating when my husband wanted to rap the lyrics to Will Smith's 'Gettin Jiggy With It'; they handed over a microphone and let him do his thing, which simply made his night!
