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!

To you and your entire band, Thank you so much for everything on Saturday. You all rocked that wedding. All of our guests can't stop raving about your "amazing band." Danielle and I knew that you were going to be amazing but you all went above and beyond our expectations. I think you all saw how much everyone enjoyed it. Danielle even did the worm in her wedding dress. We really appreciate everything. You all made that night so special for us.  
Thank again !!!

Everybody LOVED the band. You guys were the very very best...nothing could have exceeded what you accomplished. People are emailing, calling, texting.. gushing over the band. My only regret was not getting to talk to you., Dore. It was hectic trying to talk to friends and welcome everyone but I DANCED all night long! Your order of songs and interaction with the guests was right on! The dance floor was nothing but filled all night long. JC and Lindsay were thrilled over the top with your band. I cannot thank you enough. We will definitely post A+++++ reviews. I can't wait to see you guys again. We recommend you highly.
Many many thanks.

You made my night! What a night! The band brought everyone on their feet including the bride and groom who are not exactly dancers! I’ve never seen them look so good on the dance floor. Actually I’ve never seen everyone look so good on the dance floor. You and your team brought the house down! 
Thanks for helping to make Elizabeth and Graham’s wedding a ‘10”!

NYC Swing is absolutely amazing! My husband and I were married in May 2016 and NYC Swing played our reception – there was not a single guest who didn’t come up to us and rave about how incredible the band was! Dore and the musicians are incredibly talented and professional, and had everyone on the dance floor – young and old – for the entire reception. Their range of music was perfect, and their energy and personality absolutely made our wedding. The band is phenomenal – our family and friends still can’t get over how great they were! Not only that, but Dore was extremely responsive and thoughtful throughout the entire planning process and went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect – the band even learned a few songs, including our first dance. We HIGHLY recommend NYC Swing for an amazing wedding!
All the best,

This is THE BAND! We prioritized the band and saw a number of other groups. Our venue recommended we check them out because they had recently "brought down the house". They were able to do a lot of personalized song versions for us after we sent them YouTube videos that we liked. Everyone is still raving about how amazing they were! We barely left the dance floor all night and multiple guests complained to us about how sore they were the following week from dancing all night! They were a little more expensive that some other bands this size we had looked at, but the quality was on a different level from any other group we looked at. For our date and size, we had Uptown Swing. We went to New York to see them on afternoon and they were fantastic, we booked the next day and definitely do NOT regret it!

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,

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.
