CALEB MASON
MUSICAL DIRECTOR & MANAGER

I run the operation over here in New York. Joe and I met working together on a show in Miami. We realised very quickly we shared the same vision of how corporate and wedding entertainment should be and decided to join forces.

Having trained at the Manhattan School of Music and worked in the New York music scene for a number of years, I have amassed a long list of musicians that I can really trust, who have both the musical ability and performative energy I require to make this band soar.

JOE VETCH
MUSICAL ARRANGER & CEO

I first started this company in London, back in 2016 because I was tired of seeing laziness littering the event entertainment circuit. I wanted to create something where not only we care about each and every client we work with, but that the standard is consistently high week in week out, no matter the event.

 

This is a boutique entertainment company with a tight-knit collective of around 50 musicians, who  each work in various of the 4 acts I have put together. These 4 acts - NYC Party Band, Fortissimi Strings, Skyline Jazz and Wide Awake, comprise the company. The idea is that they may work together to provide the entertainment for weddings and events throughout one day. This is NOT an agency - we created the acts on this site from scratch and each act has its own set of bespoke arrangements.

 

I hope you enjoy the eclectic array of luxury bands on offer throughout this site. I'm very proud to present the product of my resources from my time as a session singer/arranger/West End performer!

PREMIUM 12 piece line up

Four vocalists, three horns, percussionist and 

rhythm section. DJ service included.

 

How much does the band cost?

The cost of the band depends on a lot of different variables including the number of members required in the band, how long they will be on site and distance from the venue. When
you call us on +1 (478) 284-6912, we will go through these variables together and you will be sent a quote within an hour.

 

What do you require from us?

 

We need floor space or a stage that is separate from the dancefloor, it's no fun for anyone having guests falling over expensive equipment!

 

- 12 Piece - Width 24 x 12 ft

- 9 Piece - Width 20 x 10 ft

- 6 Piece - Width 16 x 10 ft

Power

 

Also we need around 4 x 13Amp Plug sources to be safe!

 

Food 

 

The band requires hot meals and soft drinks. These would usually be served after set up or between the first and
second sets.

 

Weather

 

If the event is outdoors and you require the use of electrical 

equipment we need cover, even if it doesn't look like it's going to rain!

Will you learn our first dance?

 

Yes! Whatever it may be! We already have a fairly large back catalogue, but if you want something new, we will arrange and learn a first dance free of charge!

Do you take other requests?

The NYC Party Band prides itself on flexibility, so if you want specific music played at your event, we can collaborate in the run up to it and tailor make your set to best suit your guests. If you want us to learn specific new songs it can absolutely be done just at a very small cost.

 

How do you entertain guests between sets?

Luckily, three of the band members are DJs, so if you want vibrant live mixes instead of just music played out of an iPod between, before and after the band's set then this is an option to consider! We can also add a sax and percussion to this set up to create a great live, party vibe.

 

Can you play music for our ceremony?

Yes, the band can morph easily into a pop trio, or even just a pianist and a singer. You can also get our amazing jazz group 'Skyline Jazz' or the string group 'Fortissimi' who also play classical music and all your favourite love songs!

 

Do you have material for Jewish and Hindu weddings?

Whilst the majority of our set is Western, we have 15 minute medleys of traditional Jewish music and Bollywood music!

 

How long is a set?

Our quotes are usually set for 3 x 1 hour sets or 4 x 1 hour sets, but if you require an alternative length of performance, let us know!

 

Are the performers always the same as in the videos?

Whilst the singers and musicians in the video are always the first call, occasionally with their busy performing careers they will become unavailable for the date of the event. Fortunately, LDN works as a tight-knit collective of top class performers so the people coming in to replace the singers are from a selection of the best in the business. After all we'd rather be using top class people with busy careers settling for second best!
