The Platinum Band blew away my expectations. Their presence from the moment you walked into the room set the stage for the night. Our first dance song as husband and wife was a Frank Sintra song and half our guests thought it was a recording the band and singer sounded that good. Every song they played was just spot on. I am going to be honest- I put my husband in charge of the planning for this. He said it was so easy. The team was extremely responsive and they made outlining song choices and providing input very streamlined and easy (I was involved with this part). I could not be more happy with the Platinum Band. I want to plan my next event just so we can have them play again!

One of the top priorities for my wife and I was to have a band at our wedding reception and we could not be happier with our decision to go with Platinum Band Music! They were incredible! From Sinatra to Bruno Mars and everything in between, they nailed it. Dance floor was packed and we still have people telling us how great the band was. In addition to the great performance, they were extremely easy to work with. Angelynn was very responsive and professional which made the entire process stress free. I really can’t say enough about this crew. If you’re looking for a wedding band look no further.
— Joe Bongiovanni 11/17/18
INCREDIBLE band. I was blown away by their sound. The musicians can play anything and the singers are unbelievably talented, each bringing something unique to the table. The dance floor at our wedding was rocking all night long with people of all ages. I have never been to a wedding where the band consistently had the crowd rocking the way it did on our wedding night. I cannot wait to experience them at another event in the future.

This band was incredible. They had everyone on the dance floor non stop and played an incredible set of exactly the type of music that we wanted for our event. The band can play anything and each singer brings something different to the table. When they played Rosalita I felt like I was at a Springsteen show for a minute. Platinum Band is first class all the way and I hope to experience them again at another event soon!!

Platinum Band rocked the party! This is the FOURTH time we have been at a wedding with them...we booked Platinum the day we booked our venue. We couldn’t recommend PBM more. They were SO easy to work with, asked the right questions, were available to answer any questions, and put together a GREAT song list based off our must-haves and do-not-play list.
You will NOT be disappointed if you book PBM!

5 STARS! My husband and I were lucky enough to have Platinum Band Music play our recent June wedding, and I must say - other than the Bride and Groom (of course family will tell us we were their favorite part) - the band got unbelievable reviews from all of our family and friends. They are true musicians - able to play for hours on end, and they have the unique ability to read the crowd- something that came in handy with our mixed group of wedding guests. I cannot say enough praises for this incredible group of musicians - the songs they focused on (father/daughter, first dance with my husband) were absolutely incredible - I swear, Elton John showed up to sing ‘Tiny Dancer’ and Van Morrison was there too when he sang ‘Into the Mystic’ - we couldn’t have been any luckier, and I would recommend this group to ANYONE. I must also add that they put on an incredible ceremony (string quartet), and Cocktail Party (jazz trio) so be sure to ask them about those services as well. You blew us away! Cheers!

Hi Angel,

Thank you for a FANTASTIC wedding reception!!!!

You were amazing in everyway...calm, flexible, & professional.

You read the crowd perfectly and you saw the results...everyone had a blast and DANCED all night.

Loved your shout out to Chris & our Mother-Daughter Dance. You didn’t miss any of our “Must Plays” or requests.

Here’s a copy of the review I posted on both Wedding Wire and The Knot on Monday. Please lmk if they didn’t post correctly. Please put anyone in touch with me directly via email if someone would like an independent recommendation.

My husband and I have attended more than 25 weddings in recent years. We both agree that the difference between a good wedding reception and a great one is the quality of the band. So when we started planning our daughter’s wedding a year ago, we placed a high priority on choosing the right band. We chose Platinum Band Music for our daughter’s wedding and PBM far exceeded our expectations. We had over 220 guests and at least 90% of them found their way to the dance floor. We asked PBM to play without any breaks once the toasts and dinner were completed and for well over 2 hours, the entire dance floor was jam packed. They played all the songs we requested and more, read the crowd perfectly, mixed in a few slower songs at the appropriate time, which kept the party going strong the entire evening. Angel was terrific to work with planning the playlist and being flexible about all our specific requests. Most of our guests went out of their way to tell us how much they loved the band and that it was one of the best wedding celebrations they had ever attended. Without reservation, we highly recommend PBM for your event.

Wow! Platinum Band is truly incredible and insanely talented! When we heard them perform for the first time, we instantly booked them! They completely blew us away! Our wedding was so much fun and we have Platinum Band to thank for that! They played a fun variety songs and every single person at the wedding was dancing! They sounded just like the original artists, if not better! Our guests were so impressed, two of our couple friends have already booked them for their weddings! We also booked a guitarist for our ceremony who was amazing! Platinum Band made our wedding extra special. Leading up to the day, Angelynn was very responsive and helpful in planning the logistics of the reception and ceremony. She was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend you book Platinum Band, I PROMISE you won’t regret it!

We used the 10 piece platinum soul band for our wedding this past May and we couldn’t be happier with the amazing job they did!! At first my husband did not want to go with a band due to our budget, but after seeing them perform at a showcase we were sold immediately. The Platinum Band is reasonably priced, very professional, friendly, and upbeat. We absolutely would have paid more then what they charge, we think they are under priced for the NJ/NY market. Their set lists ranges from 60’s and 70’s rock, to Motown, to newer hits. They will work with you to learn any song requests you have before the event. All three of our staged dances (father-daughter, first dance, and mother son dance) were not on their set list they gave us but they learned them and played them beautifully for the reception. Angel keeps the party going, perfectly spacing out the dances throughout the evening and keeping the reception on track. At one point there were so many people on the dance floor that our guests had to move some of the tables out of the way to fit everyone! They kept the party going all night. We will absolutely be using them and recommending them for every event where music is needed in the future.

“Amazing!!! Wow our guests had so much fun! So many compliments, our guests were/still are raving! Angelynn and her team really pulled it together, they read the crowd spot on! We gave them a little bit of a task with our wedding song but Steve really pulled it off, it was amazing! Highly, highly recommend!

Once again, (yes our 2nd daughter has “gone platinum”), The Platinum Band has outdone themselves. There wasn’t a square inch of dance floor that wasn’t being used. The music was wonderful. I would highly recommend them.
— Andrew Nardella
Choosing Platinum Band Music was the best wedding decision we made! Music was at the top of our list when it came to wedding vendors. We went to many showcases and even trekked into the city to listen to different bands but none compared to PBM. They are true musicians that play an amazing variety of songs. We booked the 9 piece Platinum Soul band and all of our guests still have not stopped talking about how great our band was. Some even asked for their contact info to have them at their own weddings (which we are hoping for so we can hear them again :) Angel was super easy to work with throughout the whole process. It was especially nice to work directly with her, rather than a company- it made the planning much more personal. We HIGHLY recommend Platinum Band Music and can promise you your night will be as magical as ours was!

“We can’t thank you enough for helping to make our wedding celebration unforgettable! All of our friends and family are still talking about how amazing you were and how much fun they had. We knew you were good, but you blew us away! The wedding reception would have been so boring without you : ). We are so honored and grateful to have the memory you helped create. Thank you. Everyone was amazing; we’re pretty sure the dance floor was always crowed, which we wanted. We know we pushed that second encore, but the memory of you singing Wagon Wheel, and all the other songs for that matter, will be cherished for years. You made our wedding fun and extra memorable. We will be talking you up for years and we hope we get to hire you again in the future.
— Jess & Mike
Platinum Band literally made my wedding day SO PERFECT! I am absolutely blown away by their talent, professionalism and just amazing-ness! Truly, I wish I could count the number of people that complimented them to me, and inquired about “where did you find them!?”. From the start to the finish they made me feel super comfortable and stress free. They are OUTSTANDING! I have a video of someone taping the dance floor during the song ‘shout’ and the entire dance floor was full! Truly from the bottom of my heart thank you Platinum Band!

“Our daughter’s wedding was an afternoon affair in an arboretum and our main concern was that guests would not loosen up to dance in the bright daylight. We could not have been more inaccurate! The band made our wedding memorable! The dance floor was full the entire time except when the main meal was served. All of the guests commented about the range of music they played. From Justin Timberlake to Sinatra to touching bride/groom and father/daughter acoustic numbers.... all were perfectly executed. My daughter forwarded them a rendition of her first dance song and they surpassed it! Angelynn is their manager and she is sweet, easy to communicate with and masters her profession. We highly recommend platinum and will use them again for our next daughter’s wedding.

— Dianne

“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, 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.

“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 finding them on Youtube, my fiance 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!

— Jessica

“I seriously cannot thank you enough for everything! You guys were so amazing! I still can’t believe how gorgeous my first dance sounded! The duet was stunning. My dad will not stop talking about Kung fu Fighting! Even Pour Some Sugar on Me, Cruisin and Power of Love! I can’t get over it! It was a legit dream that you guys played those songs!! They absolutely rocked! And thank you a million times over for letting me sing with your band. That was a priceless moment and you guys made it happen. It was gorgeous. Thank you so much for everything.

I can’t wait to see you guys at another wedding!

— Alexandra

“Platinum Band was absolutely perfect. They were amazing all throughout the setup phase, being very patient with our questions. Then when it was game time, the keyboardist played beautifully for the ceremony songs and through the cocktail hour, nailed our opening songs that myself and the new wife danced too, and then played a mix of a slow song and a fast motown oldie for the bride and fob to dance to. Everything went perfectly. There was no error on their part what so ever. The reception music had every single person dancing all night, and we’ve heard nothing but compliments since. I feel like we should have paid double what we did, because they were a bargain for how awesome they were! Every single member had their own unique thing about them so when the song came around for them to flaunt it, they crushed it. I can’t say enough about how they made our wedding that much more special. Thank you Platinum, especially Angelynn for setting it up perfectly, my man who sang Stand by Me for me and the Mrs., ..best version I’ve ever heard. Your vocals are insane. Everybody, really, thank you. One last shout out to lead guitar / vocalist for the last song. You’re a hero, and we will listen to wagon wheel every anniversary.

— Michael

“BEST decision we made for our wedding day! Not only did they sound PHENOMENAL but they really know how to read the crowd and play certain music depending on the audience. The dance floor was jam packed the entire night at my wedding! One song was better than the next. They even played an encore after the last song because everyone was begging for one more!! Everyone is still raving about how great they were. They really made my wedding so memorable. I would 100% recommend them, you won’t be disappointed!!!!!!! I wish I could give them more stars :)

— Michelle M

“They are the best wedding band around. They absolutely made my wedding the best party my guests have every been to. From start to first the music was incredible and everyone was up dancing and having a blast. I think music was one of the most important part of a wedding and they are worth every penny. They were also the band at my older sisters wedding and guests were so excited to hear that they would be at my wedding as well because they are THAT GOOD! Thank you Platinum band for making my wedding night a blast my husband and I thank y

— Carolyn

“Platinum went above and beyond our highest expectations. Angel was great to work with prior to our wedding and once the day came we were blown away. Our guests are still raving about the band weeks later. They played the music we both liked, read the crowd perfectly with hit after hit, and had everyone dancing all night. Nailed every genre too whether it was a favorite Bruce song or Pitbull. I can’t say enough about how they helped make our special night the funnest night ever.

— Bryan G

“We booked Platinum Band for our wedding and could not have been happier. From what we saw of them on their website, we knew that they were going to be a good choice, but they far exceeded our already high expectations. They read the room perfectly and played songs to cover the various age groups of our guests. Everyone danced at our wedding. Every one of our guests has told us how great the band was and I know that some of them asked the band if they had any business cards. These guys are well worth the money!

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 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!

We used Platinum Band Music for our ceremony and they were amazing. Angel was SO easy so work with and helpful when it came to choosing music. They have such a wide range of offerings, and even learned music that we chose that wasn't in their portfolio. 

We absolutely loved our experience with them and I can't wait to get our video back to listen to it all!!!
