Our Client Reviews 
For the past FIVE years, New York City Swing has been volunteering their musical talents. Several times a year, they've energized and brightened the day for the young patients of Schneider Children’s Hospital. 

Dear Mr. DeQuattro and New York City Swing:

Once again, thank you for making our summer barbecue such a pleasure. Your presence there helped to make the afternoon one of fun and enjoyment. Having some of the children play your drums was wonderful.  

The expressions on their faces and their enjoyment of the music I’m sure created lasting memories for the patients and their families.  

We are looking forward to hearing you play again at one of our upcoming parties. Thank you again for a wonderful afternoon.

Sincerely, Steffi Schopick

Dear Dore:
A little late, but sincere thank you for all that you did to make our 68th Annual Heisman Memorial Trophy Awards Weekend such a success.

Thanks to New York City Swing we are still receiving rave reviews from our guests.

It is a joy to work with such professional and dedicated people as you, and your multi-talented band. Please extend our thanks and appreciation to all of the members that were involved with our event.

I will call you soon with our dates for next year. We definitely want New York Swing for our 69th Annual Heisman.

Best wishes for the New Year!

Dore & Tim,
I want to thank you so much for an incredible evening last weekend that we will never forget! The music was spot-on, lively and incredibly captivating! So good, in fact, that I spent most of my time on the dance floor and little walking around schmoozing with guests!  
Thanks again,
Max & Nicole

We had our wedding on Saturday night (12/5) and I cannot say enough about how phenomenal this band is. Tim, their musical director, was an absolute pleasure to work with. He met with us before the wedding to discuss every detail and was incredibly professional and personable. The musicians in the band are incredibly talented. It sounded like their was a full orchestra at our wedding. All of our guests cannot get over how amazing the artists were. Several people said that Charlie Howard is the best singer since Sinatra himself. They nailed every genre of music and had our guests on the dance floor from start to finish. BIGZ is like Biggie re-born and absolutely killed Juicy and Empire State of Mind. Carl's rendition of SHOUT was amazing, Von and Jimi were on the dance floor all night mingling with the crowd, and Yvette and Toni were absolutely phenomenal. We've been to two prior weddings where this band has performed (which is why we chose to book them for ours) and they knocked it out of the park all three times. They are by bar the best wedding band we have every heard. Book them. Trust them. Let them do their thing. You will not regret it.

Dear Dore,
On behalf of Phil Byer and myself I want to thank you for going above and beyond to keep my guests dancing all night and having a great time at the North Ritz Club on Sunday, Aug 16th for my wedding. The singer Roz I believe who got everyone literally on the dance floor was energetic and awesome. I told my friends about you and everyone loved the music your band played including the older crowd. If you ever need a recommendation please let me know if I can do anything. Thank you again!

Uptown Swing was truly amazing!! Our guests had such a blast dancing the night away! Everyone loved the talented musicians! We had a bunch of people ask us about where we found you guys! We definitely had some special requests such as leaning new music for the ceremony and Alex learned and played our song absolutely beautifully! We can't wait to watch it all on video and relive the day.
We can't say thank you enough!

Almost a month after our wedding, our guests are still talking about our band at our wedding. NYC Swing was so easy to work with and did a great job, that i would recommend them to anyone. Dore was easy to work with, and even though we had some issues that came up, we worked around them to make our day the special event it turned out to be. You can't go wrong with NY Swing, and I would give them a score higher than a 5 if I could.
