You're Amazing/Pearl, Wedding BandNJ/NY/CT, Music Band, Band for Wedding

Wedding Band Music for:

New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania

The Pearl Band performing: You're Amazing

Entertainment Consultants presents The Pearl Band.   Their repertoire is quite extensive.  The band goes from 5 to 13 pieces depending on your needs; such as, the number of guests at your party and the size of your venue.  

We love The Pearl Band for events like:

Wedding Receptions, Company Parties, Birthday Parties, Baptisms, Graduations, Picnics, Sweet 16's, Fundraising Events, etc...etc...etc! 

Actually, we love them for anytime you want to have a great party!  They are extremely versatile, because they play rock to perfection and they also do all the new songs that are being played on the radio now!

We also like their versatility in that they are a small band that can go to a much larger group.  The reason that they can do this well is because the band is made up of professional musicians.  These guys aren't faking anything!  No Karaoke, no pre-sets, no sequenced or pre-sequenced sets!  This is the real deal.

The link that we have provided below, shows The Pearl Band at a summer picnic.
In this video-clip they are performing Proud Mary.  If you read the text included in the description you will get an idea of the quality of the musicians in this New Jersey Band.

You can see an example of The Pearl Band as a much larger band by clicking on the link below:

 I have divided the songs into mini-clips of  music for your wedding or party. They range in length from 35 seconds to just over one minute.  Click on each song, and the link will direct you to our YouTube Channel.

How to choose the right band for your party.

So you're having a party.  You want live or dj?  How do you decide?

There are a number of factors you need to consider:

1.  Where will you have the party?
2.  How many guests?
3.  What is the cause for your celebration?
4.  What is your budget?

1. size of venue - Your party venue is very important in choosing your entertainment.  If your venue can accommodate 400 guests, a dj or a small band would be overwhelmed in such a large room.
You would need to consider a larger band or orchestra.  If you are concerned that the band could not play everything that your guests want then you may want to add a dj to the mix.
However,  any good band will take requests; note, also, that a great band will learn songs that you request.  Remember to give them plenty of notice with your requests.  Try to be reasonable with your demands.

2.  # of guests - If you have 500 guests in attendance, a 5-piece band will not be large enough!
You need to consider the number of guests and choose the band accordingly.  

3.  what are we celebrating? - A backyard picnic does not require a big band.  If the event is a small home party, then one or two musicians should suffice.  Some options for a small party could be:  jazz duo or single, steel drummer, a singing guitarist, classical guitarist, one-man band, harpist, or a dj.   If you are having a large event, however,  a larger band or orchestra will be needed.  

4.  Budget$$ -  Figure out a budget and stick to it.  When you are working with a reputable agent let them know how much you want to spend.  A knowledgeable booking agent will have enough talent at his disposal to accommodate your needs.  Do not let an agent talk you into something you neither need or want!  A reputable entertainment agency will listen to your needs.

You need an honest, reputable  agency.
