Our wedding was two days ago, and although I don't leave reviews often, I couldn't wait to write this more than well deserved one. From the start, Angel and the rest of the band were the epitome of professionals. Never having planned a wedding, I had no idea what I was doing,... Read More and Angel walked me through every step of the process. She diligently followed up and communicated well from the very start of our wedding planning process, through our wedding day. She was easy to get in touch with, and was patient with my (many) questions. We liked that we were guided through making personalized choices and the end result was a soundtrack for our wedding day that was more perfect and true to us than I could ever have imagined. One worry I had was that because our wedding was during the day (12-5) people wouldn't dance. Angel and the guys read our crowd and dance floor was completely full the entire time. Planning a wedding involves so many different details to research, plan, and oversee. It was so nice to be able to let go, and trust Angel with such an important aspect of what makes a wedding memorable- the music. At times, I forgot a band was playing. Sinatra songs sounded like he was singing himself, and the same goes for Coldplay, Springstein, and the list goes on. After the party was over, not a few, but multiple people told us they were the best wedding band they had EVER heard. One important word of advice if you are considering this band. If you are watching their videos on youtube (because who doesn't want to hear what their prospective wedding band sounds like)- they are 10x better live. We thought they sounded okay/good in the videos but weren't necessarily blown away. From the first song they played at our wedding we were absolutely blown away. They nailed every. single. song. Huge huge thanks to Angel and the guys. They were everything and more we could have wanted from a band at our wedding. You will not be disappointed that you trust them with yours as well. -Natalie

On a whim and sort of by accident I came across Platinum in a bridal magazine. I know what you’re going to say – you found your vendors in a bridal magazine?? Typically no, but after not finding what I was looking for in a band elsewhere, I decided to research them. After... Read More finding them on Youtube, my fiancé and I quickly said “these guys are amazing” as they were the perfect blend of our scattered and sometimes contradictory music tastes (any couple with an age gap will know what I mean!) They invited us to a showcase and we looked forward to finding out if their live sound was as good as their recorded sound. WAS IT EVER?! We sent in our deposit that same night. When it came to selecting our music (we used Platinum for our ceremony music, cocktail hour and reception), Angel was patient, helpful and knowledgable. There is literally no song they don’t know! They MADE our wedding and even though we chose 11 of them – you can genuinely tell how well run the band is, and how insanely talented each and every one of them are. They had our crowd (ages 20-85) up and dancing the entire night and while everyone compliments your wedding, the compliments on our band have literally not stopped coming in. We wish they played gigs so we can hear them more regularly but instead, we’ll just have to keep referring them so maybe a friend uses them in the future!! Thank you so much for making our wedding AMAZING. If you are even thinking of a DJ – don’t! If you are thinking of another band – don’t!! These guys can play ANYTHING variety-wise, decade wise, and they can jump around without making it seem like it. 10 stars!

Hiring a band was the most important vendor to me, and I’m so happy we chose PBM! So many guests raved about how talented they were. We had a 9 piece and they had the dancefloor going the entire evening. I’m super picky about song choices and Angelynn was very accommodating and... Read More they played all the music we love. The band has a diverse range of talent, so all genres of music sounded amazing. From oldies to pop and everything in between. Our first dance song wasn’t on their list, so they learned it for us :) We're so happy we chose PBM to celebrate our special day

Wedding entertainment was HUGE to me when it came to planning our wedding. I felt it was one of the first things we needed to book and was really important that we got it right. We could not have made a better decision!! Platinum Band was incredible!! My husband's brother and...

Platinum Band performed at my wedding in 2015, and when my sister got engaged the first phone call made was to check the band's availability for summer 2016. We planned the date around the band because they did such an incredible job the first time, and last night they might... Read More have outdone themselves. From start to finish, Angel and the team were phenomenal. I had a guest come up to me later to say that he had never been to a wedding where people were dancing before dinner. It was a non-stop party the whole night. My entire family couldn't be more grateful to Platinum Band for making 2 of our weddings so special, memorable, and fun. We give them our highest recommendations.

The Highlight of the Wedding

When I started wedding planning, I knew the one thing that I absolutely had to have to make my wedding an unforgettable experience - a great wedding band. I was even prepared to splurge for it. Luckily, Platinum Band Music was able to far exceed my expectations at an incredibly... Read More reasonable price. They truly blew everyone out of the water - we still have guests telling us how much fun our wedding was, and I attribute that in large part to Angel and the rest of the band who played an incredible show. Angel was particularly great about being flexible around our specific needs, and she was always on the same page as us about what kind of party we wanted to have. I have never seen so many people dancing instead of sitting down to eat their salad! By the time they ended the party on a rousing rendition of "Shout" our guests were ready to keep the party going into the early hours of the morning. From a diverse song selection to first-class sound, I would highly recommend Platinum Band Music to anyone! On a special aside - if you are a Bruce Springsteen fan, Platinum Band Music does phenomenal covers. It was almost like the Boss was in the house with us that night!

ABSOLUTELY fantastic!!! We had the full band, and they were so exceptional. Our guests were truly blown away and we got dozens of compliments about them. Angel was so easy to work with and made the process seamless with easy forms and song lists to fill out. When we were still... Read More choosing our vendors, Platinum did a showcase for a few couples at a local music store, which really helped us decide which band we were going to go with. An added bonus to have a private showing! They played all of the songs we requested, and didn't deviate from the feel and genres we selected, as sometimes is the case with DJs or bands. ALSO they never took a full break. Someone from the band was always playing, which I don't think I have ever seen at any other wedding. Additionally, the classical guitarist for our ceremony was exceptional. He played whatever songs we requested for my walk down the aisle and our recessional (You Make My Dreams Come True, by Hall & Oats!!) and totally made it work. I can't say anything negative about Angel and the entire band! Can't wait for some of my friends weddings to be able to enjoy them again and again!!

My girlfriend had used Angel and Platinum Band Music for her wedding a few years ago and my husband and I were totally impressed. When it was our turn to start the hunt for a wedding band, nothing really jumped out at us. We decided to contact Angel, thinking that they may be... Read More way out of our budget, but were pleasantly surprised at the price, considering the quality and range that they perform. Angel even met with us at the venue to get an idea of the space and make suggestions about what would work best since we were having the reception in a restaurant. We had a piano player and sax player for cocktail hour, a jazz duo for the dinner portion and their "Platinum Soul" 10 piece band after dinner. The performance was flawless! They performed everything from Frank Sinatra, Bon Jovi, to Mark Ronson "Uptown Funk." We received so many compliments during the reception and people are still talking about how amazing the band was. I simply cannot say enough about the band and Angel. She made thoughtful suggestions and figured out how to make our wedding vision come to life in a non-traditional venue.

In 2000, after leaving a NY based original band that toured and recorded heavily, I started Platinum with my husband/musical partner. My 12 years of vocal training and stage performances had a better purpose! My philosophy is that your wedding should be more than you envision. It should be EPIC! Platinum delivers EVERY TIME. We love what we do and our goal is for you to love us too. Almost 18 years later, our passion for providing outstanding music is still going strong! We can't wait to share our talent with you. PBM will make your wedding a truly unforgettable experience!
