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

New York City Swing has performed for the Heisman Trophy Award Dinners since 2002.
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!

NYC Swing is incredible! We found them online and watched a ton of their videos early in our wedding planning process and knew we had to book them. The band was phenomenal every person at the wedding said they enjoyed the music from friends to grandparents, they made the night a fun event for everyone! The band played beautiful music for our ceremony and was able to easily accommodate our custom song choices for first dances etc. We fully trusted Dore's lead and we could not have been happier. The band kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night and our guests kept commenting on how amazing the band was. I highly recommend NYC Swing, their sound and overall vibe made our wedding into a memorable night for everyone.

NYC Swing made our wedding what it was. They are an absolutely fantastic wedding band. They bring the energy, the charisma, and the professionalism that you can only hope your wedding band would bring! Tim was a great business man to work with leading up to the wedding. He asked all the right questions and made us feel confident the affair would go smoothly. Roz is a fantastic singer who really brought the party. The band EVEN learned the Northwestern Fight Song a day before the wedding so I could surprise my groom!...

We had such a blast! Tim could not have been nicer or made the kids feel more comfortable. The band just opened with such high energy that continued throughout the evening. Several people, and I am talking at least 50 people, told me it was the best wedding they have ever attended! I would recommend NYC Swing in a heartbeat. When we get some professional photos, I will post on FB!

We wanted to take a moment to thank you for the incredible music at our wedding this weekend. We had the time of our lives! We have gotten so many compliments from our guests about you. The touches of Phish and Grateful Dead were perfect and made our wedding extra special. Thanks again!

You guys are truly spectacular!!! What an amazing performance and an amazing way to make our wedding amazing.

What can I say but thank you, thank you, thank you. Although I was very familiar with you and your musicians, it always seems different when it's you. As promised, you delivered, and then some. I have always said that the music makes the event, which is why I had suggested you to my daughter and then future son-in-law. Certainly, I truly believe that it is money well spent. Feel free to use me as a reference, not that you need one, and thank you again for making a memorable evening that much more enjoyable.

We just wanted to say THANK YOU for everything. UPTOWN SWING was INCREDIBLE on Saturday. Everyone loved you and our venue has even put you on the preferred vendor list because they have never seen such an amazing band.
Thank you again for everything!!

New York City swing was amazing! Dore was great to work with leading up to our wedding day and we had the band play ceremony, cocktail and reception at our October 2016 wedding. We continue to get compliments about NYC Swing and how they sounded even better than the actual artists they were singing! They really got everyone dancing and no one was in their seat the entire night. Great investment, great talent and great people to work with. Definitely recommend!

I just wanted to let you know on behalf of my family how grateful we are to have had you and the band play for us on September 3rd. The music was incredible, I had never seen so many people rush to the dance floor! All of our guests raved about how energetic you all were, and we appreciate all the work you put into making Annette and Sean's wedding a great one. Please let us know if we can leave any sort of review somewhere- we'd be happy to do it. Hope to keep in touch, as I'm sure we will be keeping you in mind for next time!
Take care,
The Jule family

We want to say thank you for doing an amazing job at the wedding!!! Everything was perfect from the ceremony music, to cocktail, and the main band was absolutely a show-stopper. We received so many compliments on the band from all our guests. We kept receiving the same compliment, "We have never been to a wedding were everyone danced all night - the music was great!" You guys did a great job of keeping the entire crowd pleased and dancing! You were so helpful and made this entire process so seamless!
Thank you!!!
