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

New York City Swing has performed for the Heisman Trophy Award Dinners for the past 12 years including the 2013 ceremony honoring Jameis Winston.
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!

New York City Swing just performed at my daughter's wedding April 18 and if anyone is looking for a band that will make your event the most outrageous party, you must call New York City Swing!!! The dance floor was crowded the entire night and our event went until 2:15 AM! My guests have not stopped raving about this band! Each singer we had was unbelievable! Their voices were as if the original singers were on stage and better! My daughter and son in law had the greatest time! Working with Dore the fabulous horn man and head musician was a pleasure! Such a "cool" guy! Thank you Dore and the entire NYC Swing band you were AMAZING and made our party an unbelievable success!

Dear NYC Swing,
Evan and I would both like to thank you for making our wedding the best day of our lives. From the second we heard Tim singing people down the aisle throughout the entire party, you exceeded our expectations. You were on point with every single song we asked for, and everyone's energy remained high the whole time. Our guests were constantly coming up to us to tell us how amazing the band was, and are still talking about it days later. We will absolutely recommend you to anyone we know of looking for a band. Thank you for making the night unforgettable!!

NYC Swing did an amazing job at our wedding! All of our guests cannot stop raving about the band, and I know for sure that a few people asked for cards that night and asked for your name. I cannot wait too see the video and watch it all back, as the night went by so fast! I'll be at Michelle and Justin's wedding on May 2nd, so Adam and I will see you there :)
Thanks again,

Thanks for helping us with the event. I've gotten tons of positive feedback on the band and we will definitely be in touch once we start making arrangements for next year!

I cannot express how awesome it was to see the band in action again!
My fiance, my mom (who is incredibly difficult to please) and my future father and mother in law haven't stopped talking about how amazing you guys were. We cannot wait for the wedding!! Just wanted to thank you guys for putting on such a phenomenal show (and making me look like I knew what I was talking about when I said you are the best band out there)!!!
Talk to you soon!

Dear Dore,
We wanted to take a quick moment to say "Thank You" for your help supplying your New York City Swing Band to our December 9th Holiday Party. They did a fantastic job supplying just the right music for our VIP Tented Rooftop. We haven't had live music at our events in sometime and it worked out wonderfully. Thanks to you, people are still talking about how great the event was.
Thank you again, we truly appreciate it.

Greetings from the Maldives! Jordana and I wanted to thank you again for an incredible night at Oheka. 
One of our favorite parts of wedding planning was working with NYC Swing. You were so fun to work with and so accommodating. 
We are still hearing from family and friends about how GREAT the music was :) you guys really rocked the house !
Wishing you a joyous holiday season and warm wishes for the upcoming new year.

Dore DeQuattro and the members of the NYC Swing Band were beyond amazing at our Mom's 80th birthday party. They were complete professionals. They were set up early, engaged the guests, took requests and brought the house down with spectacular sounds -- amazing vocals, great horns and fabulous keyboard support. My Mom was in heaven listening to the songs she has loved all of her life. The combination of the band's range of musical style, friendly personalities and glowing performance make it easy to say that I (or anyone in my large family) would hire these guys again. Hopefully Mom makes it to 90 -- better yet someone should hire them for my 50th next year!

Good afternoon Mr. Dequattro,
My wife Linda and I attended Lauren and Claude's wedding on Saturday. Danny and Joan are dear friends and our daughter Staci danced with Lauren when they were teens and that is how we know the family.
I wanted to just take a minute of your time and let you know that you guys were absolutely incredible. The energy the band created in that room was awesome. I have seen my share of bands and shows from Johnny Maestro to Joe Satriani and Prince and you guys just rocked. Danny told me to hold on to my hat and he was right! So please extend our thanks to the entire band for a great time. I was going to compliment and ask Mr. Curtin a question about his amazing guitar playing ( I am still trying) during the cocktail hour but I will have to save it for the next time I see the band.
All the best and thanks again,

Hi Dore and band,
You were so awesome Saturday night! Our family was so psyched with the music and your show that they can't stop talking about it.
Thank you so much, Deirdre McGregor

Absolutely the best band out there!!! They made our wedding reception so special. The quality of professionalism and musicians simply cannot be matched. They were amazing. So many of our guests are still talking about how wonderfuk they were. Dore, the owner, is very easy to work with and accomodating. He is a seasoned professional who makes sure everything is done just right. The entire band and singers are at the top of their game - amazing sound and energy. USE THEM - they are worth every penny!!

OMG!! New York City Swing made the whole wedding! I can't tell you how many guests came up to me and told me the band was fantastic! I have also received inquiries after the wedding for people that want to use New York City Swing. Honestly, looking back I would book them first before securing the venue location - just to make sure they are available. They are that GOOD! Not only fantastic musicians but amazing entertainers and completely professional! I can't wait to go to another event that they perform. They are worth every penny and I can't recommend them highly enough!

Dear Dore,
Last night [8/31/14], Uptown Swing led by Alex played at our wedding. They were fantastic! Everyone was dancing the whole time and we received so many compliments on the band. They sounded amazing. My favorite was that our first dance song, which the band had not played before we asked Alex, was perfect. Also, Alex did a wonderful job making sure that the wedding was exactly as we wanted! Thanks to you and all of the band for such a great night!

NYC Swing played at my brother's wedding and I knew I wanted them at my wedding, and I didn't even have a boyfriend yet. So when I got engaged, I already knew that I was going to book NYC Swing to play at my wedding. This company consist of a few different bands and you can mix and match band members to create the perfect group to play at your event. They are not just another wedding band. They are performers and entertainers. Their showcases are like parties. The music is so lively, it's impossible to stay in your seat. These musicians love what they do and you can tell. At both and my wedding and my brother's, the dance floor was always packed. The singers get off stage and onto the dance floor with your party. Dore, the owner is amazing. It is important to him that you have the best day ever, your guests have the most amazing time. They are more affordable than you would think considering their amazing talent. They absolutely stand out from every other wedding band you have ever seen.
