Bands for Albany Reception

We have finally decided to have our reception at Franklin Plaza in Troy and are now trying to book a band for the reception. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!!

    No problem!  They are really awesome to work with and they have an awesome assortment of music!  Also, they tend to play a different set of music when they play out at a bar....just keep that in mind if you get worried that your older relatives may not get them....for weddings they are awesome...everyone is up and dancing!

    Have fun!

    When I contacted the NY Players they were pushing $7000 for a wedding...I was willing to splurge on a band, but not quite that much...

    We booked Good For the Soul.  They're still pricey but we wanted a great band.

    We had Soul Revival at our Dec. wedding and they were awesome!!!  I am from the NYC board, but I know they travel all around NY.  DH and I loved them, and I highly recommend them.  Their website is:  www.soulrevivalband.com

    As someone mentioned to me before I booked the New York Players. "Your guests won't remember your invitations, the flower arrangements or even the food, but they WILL remeber if they had a good time."  The band sets the energy of the event.  The NY Players certainly got the guests dancing!.
