Live Music Pros provided an excellent band experience for our wedding party. My wife and I were amazed by the talent the band brought and the professionalism the management provided throughout our correspondence leading up to the event. Countless guests commented on how good the band was - truly, very talented singers and musicians. Got us on our feet! Cannot recommend Live Music Pros enough. Thank you for making our party so memorable!
Atomic Funk Project / Live Music Pros went above and beyond and DELIVERED a fantastic reception! We are grateful as they contributed by making our wedding the "event of a lifetime" for most of our guests. We had an entire year of planning with the directors, and the execution was phenomenal. We will forever be "groupies" of Atomic Funk Project!
Live Music Pros are fantastic and we would highly recommend. The booking process was straightforward, very responsive to our emails and more importantly they put on a great performance for our wedding. Our guests loved their energy and even days after are still talking about how great this band is.
We signed a contract with Live Music Pros and were provided a countersigned contract and given confirmation that they were locked in for our wedding weekend. I was in active conversation with the agent, Candace, about payment and then out of nowhere she called me to tell me they had "made a mistake," and given the group to another couple for our same weekend. The explanation given was that the other couple managed to, "call their accounting department and book before they had received our wire." Never once were we told the contract had gone out to another couple. I was told they felt really bad this happened and they never have this happen normally but I couldn't help but get the sense that it's a common occurrence for them. Really really unprofessional. I'm just glad it happened with time to spare and not 3 weeks before our date.
Live music Pro's made my wedding the BEST! My guests are still raving about how amazing this band was and I would hire them for any of my future events!
Awesome! This band is amazing. They were great throughout the process and they did such a good job performing. The dance floor was never empty and our guests still tell us what a great band that was. You will have no regrets hiring this band, I promise you!!
Atomic Funk was amazing! Besides being fabulous singers and musicians, they were great at reading the room and keeping our wedding crowd on their feet all night!
We were very disappointed with Live Music Pros and would advise you to save your money, as this cost us over $12k and was the worst part of our wedding. My wedding was under a tent and it started to rain so they just stopped playing because they did not come prepared to protect their wires. The music just stopped, and we didn't have a proper "ending" to our wedding. They also changed the timing of when they would play, unbeknownst to us (and what was agreed to in the contract) and told us that they were ending 15 minutes earlier than scheduled. 15 minutes may not seem like a lot, but since they were only playing for less than 2 hours, it was. Additionally, they did not adhere to our song requests. They did not play 1 slow song the entire night. They also played mostly T-40 songs, which we specifically asked to avoid. Also, the band that they sent was quite different from the band that we saw perform at Brooklyn Bowl. Another warning - about 2 weeks before your wedding, they will email you to ask if you want "optional" lighting for an additional $2k. They show a link to a video of the band with the lighting and without - the video of the band without the lighting is basically pitch black so you feel obligated to get the lighting, since you spent over $10k on the band in the first place. It was very disappointing that they were not upfront with this additional cost.
The Atomic Funk Project exceeded all of my expectations -- they really understood our music tastes and made sure to perform songs that matched. The dance floor was filled completely all night long. Every guest I spoke to after (and during) our wedding raved about the band. Cannot recommend Live Music Pros enough, they provided the best wedding band I have ever heard!
We just recently used Atomic Funk Project for our wedding at the Morris Museum on July 8th! This band is absolutely phenomenal!!!! I had countless guests raving about them and people are still talking about how amazing they were. Thank you for making my wedding an incredible experience for guests of all ages!!!
Atomic Funk Project performed at our wedding earlier this month. We had high hopes for them, and they surpassed our expectations. It's an understatement to say that each and every member of the band is talented. They are super well-rounded and balanced, truly offering something for everyone. We especially loved their energy and vibe - it matched perfectly with that of our crowd and our venue. Their rendition of our first-dance song was also spot on. We loved Atomic Funk Project and can't wait to see them at Brooklyn Bowl soon!
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 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 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. Every single guest asked who they were and took cards. We had a tough time getting people off the dance floor to eat dinner because everyone was too busy dancing. Best problem to have!
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 play the father/daughter and mother/son dance which was a special touch. They were very responsive and flexible and reached out to seek clarification with us if something was not clear. 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 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 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!
Amazing band from the very first moment they started playing!!! This was a tent wedding and after seeing their reviews I knew we needed to go with a bigger dance floor, thank goodness we did!!! Once the music began the dance floor was packed. They played a great variety of music and nailed every single song!!! They do not dissappoint!!!
I don't have enough good things to say about this band!! They were a HIT at our wedding on 10/8/16. Our guests still cannot stop talking about how amazing our band was and not a single person was in their seats all night!! They are worth EVERY penny and made our wedding everything we dreamed of and more! Super professional, amazing vocals and the easiest thing you will have to decide while planning your wedding! I have already recommended them to all of my engaged friends!
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 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.
It was a pleasure to work with Live Music Pros (Atomic Funk Project). They made planning the music for our event seamless from our first introduction to the day of the event. Our wedding was a few weeks ago and everyone is still talking about the band!!! If you are thinking about hiring them for your wedding just shoot the lock off your wallet and do it!
Live Music Pros were the perfect choice for our wedding! We heard all the songs we wanted to hear, so much so that our guests requested an encore! Highly recommend!
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 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. 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.
