Strecker was amazing we are so happy we chose them. Right from the start they aimed to please and had everyone on the dance floor all night long. They learned all of the songs we wanted and were just perfect. We highly recommend Strecker if you are looking for a fun wedding... Read More band with lots of dancing.

Strecker made our wedding unforgettable! We first saw the band playing at a bar in the Northfork of Long Island over three years ago. My husband and I had just started dating and were blown away by their range of music, amazing talent and performance! A few years later we were... Read More engaged, and when starting to wedding plan they were the first vendor we looked up. We immediately felt so comfortable when we spoke with Steve and Jenn. We have heard a bunch of the traditional and well known local wedding bands at many weddings and venues. Streaker by far exceeded our high expectations since we are both huge music lovers and wanted to create a fun and party atmosphere at our wedding. Their rendition of our wedding songs and father/mother dances were unbelievable. They were literally the best part of our wedding day experience and had the entire hall rocking from young to old. Not one person was sitting down for the 4 hours of our reception. Every guest we have seen since the wedding has raved about our band and we have given countless referrals. Our cousin has all ready booked them for next year. If you are looking for a high energy band that can play oldies, motown, rock, pop, hip-hop, country and dance music like no other; then book Strecker!

I was just at a wedding on Long Island and the band Strecker was fantastic! Not only did they have everyone on the dance floor (which is hard to do with such a diverse crowd) but they also did very accurate re-creations of the classic standards that made Sinatra great - my...

I cannot say enough about this band. They are so organized and managed to follow each request that we had from the very beginning. The songs we chose for our first dance and parent dances were a little different and the band leaned the songs and sang them beautifully. The... Read More party was amazing. Every guest was out on the dance floor dancing all night. We cannot say enough about them.

I watched the Strecker Band play for the first time at Dockers on Dune Road, Long Island a year ago. They literally brought all the patrons at the restaurant out of their seats to the dance floor. Their presence was energetic and contagious. Their music repertoire ranged from... Read More 80s to current day, which appealed to everyone. My husband went to watch them play a week later. We both knew immediately that they would be the perfect wedding band. Steve Strecker and his lovely fiance, and Strecker singer, Jennifer, were incredibly accommodating, and were very receptive to our emails and calls. Such a pleasure to work with true professionals. On our wedding day, they were at our wedding venue early to set up, and the music started without a hitch. All our guests complimented the band profusely after the wedding. We struck gold with Strecker.

Read More the view from the Pavillion was spectacular & the Bartenders poured heavy :-) My husband & I had the DJ & Band package The Strecker band offers with Absolute Entertainment. We couldn't be more thrilled with both groups. The one thing we both wanted was a great party...light on the usual wedding formalities and heavy on the fun. Absolute Entertainment provided beautiful uplighting that completely transformed the Pavillion from a simple room with with white ceilings to this glowing, pulsing dance hall! We also had this crazy photo booth called a Superbooth. It was a HUGE hit! Our Absolute DJ/MC was Josh. He also played guitar for cocktail hour...it was like having John Mayer right there at cocktail hour. He played all kinds of cool & chill music and was awesome. After cocktail hour, he was our DJ and MC'd the formalities. He filled in all the gaps and played a couple songs we really wanted that the band didn't do. Josh worked really well getting the dance floor packed and then turning the party over to the Strecker Band. Now onto the BEST PART!! The Strecker Band was INCREDIBLE!!! We both agreed the one thing we did not want was a stuffy band. Ladies...if you want a crazy good band with out all the stuffy...you MUST check these guys out. We really like a wide variety of music, and I never thought a "Wedding Band" could do it all! Well, we got it all! Pop-40, Old Skool 90s hip hop, Boardy Barn rock and even a couple country songs! Our guests were going nuts and the three singers (Jen, Greg & Steve) were all out on the dance floor jamming with us! My husband even rapped some Beastie Boys song with Steve...the place went crazy. The Band did a great job of working all of our requests into their show. I can not complement them enough for a wonderful job. My day was "perfect" and that is what wish for all of you after your Wedding Day!

Jenn, when I stepped out into the hall and started walking towards my future husband and I heard you singing “At Last,”... Read More I felt like I was in a fairy tale. It was a dream of mine to walk down to that song and you nailed it. The classical music as our guests entered the room was beautiful. Simple and inviting. Our reception was nothing short of a blast and it could not have happened without a great band. You played every song we requested and sounded fantastic. I SAW FRIENDS AND FAMILY WHO NEVER GET UP AND DANCE, OUT ON THAT FLOOR HAVING A GREAT TIME!! You played such a wonderful mix of songs that everyone from my 16 yr old dance students to my grandma were out dancing. What my husband and I were especially impressed with was the music you played while we had dinner. I’ve been to other events and while eating they either play cheesy elevator Muzak or something fun that makes us want to rush our meal so we can dance. You guys played a mix of cool jazz and light swing. It set the tone for dinner and was also great to listen to. After dinner you guys continued to rock the reception. I nearly “fell” out of the top of my dress I was dancing so hard. Lol. And your voices!!! Jenn has the talent to sing the sweet songs with a light and airy vibrato and then belt out the rock n roll in true Janis Joplin form. So many guests came up to me to ask who you were. They loved you. I even wrote a post on my Facebook page telling everyone who they need to hire for their next event. I cannot finish this without also mentioning how EASY YOU WERE TO WORK WITH. Having never booked a band for anything my husband and I were a bit confused. You guys made it so easy. And one thing we tried to do above all else when booking vendors, WE WANTED PEOPLE THAT WOULD LISTEN TO US, WHO WE ARE AS A COUPLE AND YOU DID. Thank you from both Dan and myself for helping to make the best day of our life absolutely wonderful.
