NYC Wedding Band Review

The Loyales were the best wedding band ever because they weren’t a wedding band. They were just a really great band.  We threw them several requests that were off the map, and they followed through like it was no problem.  You  should have total confidence in their talent, performance ability and general rocking-ness.

Milton and his cronies played our wedding in June and it was fantastic! They had a very wide range of songs and styles including many of our personal requests including from Beatles, Velvet Underground, Hot Chocolate, Eddy Grant, and The O’Jays. We had many guests young and old, mellow and rockin’ comment that our band was outstanding! We highly recommend them for their versatility and ability to hit just the right mood.

Best wedding band ever!!!  We spent our entire evening on the dance floor along with everyone else!

Six years later, people are still talking about the fabulous music at our wedding party.  The Loyales played and sang their hearts out to Johnny Cash, the Beatles, Etta James, Prince, James Brown, and more.  No one could resist the urge to get up and dance.  Thank you, thank you, thank you to all!

I can unreservedly say that having The Loyales perform at our wedding was a lasting highlight. Not only did the band perform countless songs from their reserves, they played personal requests that truly “made the night”.

The Loyales played at my 50th birthday party in December, 2009, for about 80 people, in a private room at a nice bar/restaurant.  I cannot say enough about how successful the event was, thanks to The Loyales.  Almost the entire room was dancing for three straight hours — no exaggeration! They pleaded with the band not to leave the stage for any breaks! I received so many compliments afterwards from people who had never seen Milton before asking where I had found such a great band and how excellent they were. Of course I knew that would be the case, since I was personally already a fan. Milton is a pleasure to work with, learned a few new tunes at our request, and presents a quality of musicianship (and fun) that is unparalleled.  He made many new fans that night who have subsequently come to his gigs around town.  Trust me, if you like excellent music in the country-rock style, with a bit of honky-tonk and a nice dose of New Orleans soul in the mix, you will be thrilled to have The Loyales play your party. Call me anytime for a reference.

It was a joy and a pleasure to have The Loyales entertain my guests at several parties.  They enjoyed listening, and dancing and the music appealed to all ages. The guests all told me how much they enjoyed the music and hoped to have the opportunity to be entertained by The Loyales another time. Milton and his band were easy to work with and, even though they already had a long play list prepared, they were very accomodating about adding more songs at my request.

The Loyales played at my private party and were great!  They received rave reviews from young and old alike. I can’t recommend the band too highly.

I have seen Milton and his band in different clubs and venues in  New York City, the Philadelphia area, Washington, D.C.  and Annapolis, Maryland.  Whether a solo, a trio ,or the full band, the performances have always been top notch and hugely entertaining.  In my view, his songwriting and showmanship will soon place him in the upper echelon of entertainers in this country.  I have also seen Milton at a graduation party at my brother’s house near Princeton, New Jersey. Without detracting from the party’s focus, he introduced his music in a way that genuinely enhanced everyone’s experience on that special occasion.  In sum, if you can get Milton and his band in a private showcase, you will have a great party!
