My husband, Michael, and I got married at the Park Savoy in late November. From the moment we got engaged, I knew I needed 2 things: The Park Savoy as the venue and Time Machine Band as the entertainment. I was lucky enough to get both! Fro...
m the moment I met Joe Corey (who is one of the most awesome guys around) and heard the band play, I was hooked! Michael, who is harder to impress, was equally amazed. And let me tell you, this band is amazing. If anyone is on the fence, do yourselves a favor and book Time Machine. They are not only professionals; they are an amazing group of people! We booked the entire 13 piece and it was worth every penny. They are different than other bands, as they have multiple lead vocalists so there is so much variety and an enormous amount of talent! The brass played our cocktail hour, too! Joe Corey is the world’s best MC. He had our guests laughing, dancing and tearing up the dance floor. While my husband is Italian, I am of Indian descent. Joe and his DJ gave us some amazing Indian dance numbers to incorporate my heritage! He is simply the best! Our guests could not stop raving about how awesome the band was….they are still talking about it, weeks later…and I’m sure they will be talking about it long after.
Michael and I choose an uncommon song for our first dance (Ruelle’s “I Get to Love You”). When we met with the band, they were not familiar with it but said they would learn it. I was a bit nervous, being the type A personality I am. I emailed Joe so many times and he always got back to me…immediately! He never let me feel as I were a bother but always made me feel at ease and confident with the band. Michael and I had taken private dance lessons and the original song was cut to 2 minutes. I sent Joe Corey the new cut less than a month before the wedding. It had to be played just like that, I kept telling him. Our dance was a choreographed Viennese Waltz…it needed to be played the way we had been practicing with our dance instructor. Joe was ever the professional and told me he would get it just right for us. Do you know when we heard Time Machine’s live version of our first dance? The moment we did our first dance at our wedding. That’s how much I trusted Joe and the band. The lead singer Ines was perfect! The song was perfect! It was exactly the cut I had sent but even better! I actually prefer the way Time Machine performed it to the original. I have watched the video of our dance hundreds of times, and I still get chills. It was so moving, that guests even cried…that is the power of music performed by great musicians. We love you, Time Machine! Thank you so much!
These guys don’t just play songs, they perform! The band comes out onto the dance floor with their instruments and engage the crowd! Our guests would not get off the dance floor! As one point, my brother was singing along with them (and they indulged him)! What an amazing and talented group of musicians! My wedding day was perfect. It was the best day ever. And that is mostly due to Time Machine. Joe Corey and Time Machine have gained several more groupies! If I could give 12 stars I would! This is the best band, hands down! Book them! You will be thanking me… or Joe Corey!
