What people are saying

The Met Players were the backbone of our wedding, and blew us and our guests away! Their talent, energy, enthusiasm, organization, and flexibility make them the greatest wedding band of all time. Would recommend them again and again.

The Metropolitan Players were the absolute highlight of our day! Seriously, our friends could not stop talking about how amazing they were! Powerful vocals, impeccable flow, and a tasteful selection of songs. On top of all this, they were some of the nicest people I've met! They genuinely had our happiness in mind.

The Metropolitan Players were by far the best part of our wedding! They were an absolute hit with our guests. The music they picked perfectly matched our requests and I have never seen a dance floor at a wedding as packed as ours. We had some pretty difficult requests and they played them all perfectly. The members of this band are truly talented. Erin is the coordinator for the band… she was not only one of the nicest people I have ever met, but she was also more professional than any of our other vendors. She delivered on every promise she made. My husband and I will be following this band! I hope they have more events in the future so we can see them again. What an amazing night, thank you Metropolitan Players!!!!

The Metropolitan Players are an unbelievably fantastic wedding band. They're a young, cool, energetic, FUN, and super talented group of musicians. They are the biggest reason that our wedding was as excellent as it was. Every one of our guests that we spoke with made a point to tell us how much they loved the band. They had everybody dancing the entire night! I've never danced so much in my life; even the friends of ours that rarely dance were on the dance floor going wild! Erin, the point-of-contact and coordinator, was SO GREAT to deal with from the first phone call, throughout the entire planning process, and throughout the wedding night. She accommodated every question, concern, and request that we had with excitement and a fabulous confidence-inspiring attitude. She arranged for us to come visit and watch a band practice before we hired them. We knew that day that they were the band for us!

I don't think that I have adequate words to describe how superb our experience with The Metropolitan Players was. Everything from start to finish was absolute perfection. The Metropolitan Players had our guests on the dance floor the entire night. They are such an incredibly talented group of people with such great energy. They also happen to be young, fun, and beautiful which definitely helps! Every song they played was 100% on point. We can't recommend these guys highly enough! Our guests were raving all night and we are still fielding the "how did you find them?" questions. If they have your date available, book them now! They will elevate your special night to something beyond words!”
