My husband & I hired Joe & Kris 4-weeks before our wedding date. We were in a bind as our friend who was supposed to play at our wedding became ill. We did a Google search for "NYC wedding cover bands that play oldie love songs" & Joe Kris appeared on search engine GigSalad which I have never heard of before. The story begins with our love for Joe & Kris!
It can be anxiety filled for a bride 4-weeks away from her wedding to not have a band, especially when your fiancé is a musician & music is then ultimately the most important component to the wedding. Music sets the proper atmosphere for the event, as well as display the union in a style that most represents the couple now & for the years to come. Not to mention reaching out to a band via the Internet & on a website you have never heard of before.
JoeKris Communicate. Upon reaching out to Joe & Kris we were quickly set at ease. They were the first band we approached & the first band that responded. In fact, we received instant responses for as little or as large of a question we had. This made the process smooth, easy & stress-free. Communication is key when booking online (or in-person!) & there was definitely no lack of communication with this team! We were able to exchange personal e-mails & cell phone numbers in order to accomplish quicker response rates & phone calls as a way to get to know each other, our style & the flow of our wedding to perfection.
JoeKris are Experts. They are experts in assembly. They can arrange as large as a 7-piece band or as small as a 4-piece band. Possibly even a 2-piece duet upon request! We secured their talents as a 4-piece band, as we were looking for an acoustic sound & wanted to utilize simply Joe & Kris's voices, as well as their beautiful violin / bass player & extremely talented drummer. The band arrived on-time & set up / load out was seamless. We had requested to keep assembly small as our venue was small & everything fit perfectly!
They are experts in their talent - they are extremely gifted in voice, musical ability & range. Every guest loved them & I have sent several guests to their website. Their playlist is extensive & ever changing. If there is a song they do not know, they will work hard in order to learn it before your event!
JoeKris are Adaptable. The band was able to learn new songs for our dream playlist. With as little as 1-week away for a newly requested song - none was a problem for this team! Day of the event - we changed the flow of the playlist. They were eager & excited to do it & were completely on the same page as us.
JoeKris are Professional. Between Communication, Talent, Assembly, Appearance, Flexibility & Value there is no lack of professionalism here. One thing I had not discussed with the band was dress code! My fiancé & I had wanted the band to wear black. Without discussing, the band, of course, arrived in black & looked beautiful & professional!
JoeKris provide extreme Value. As mentioned, my husband is a musician. Music to him was the most important piece of our wedding. Joe & Kris nailed it in every way possible. We feel truly represented as a couple & our union together. Coming from a musician this is not to be taken lightly! Their rates are extremely affordable & you get more from them then what you pay for. Joe & Kris were in the middle of planning their own wedding 4-weeks away from our wedding! To have a couple so in love, singing love songs as a duet, is truly something unique & special to be a part of. Our guests loved this bit of information!
Moving forward, we have requested to be invited to public appearances of Joe & Kris & will for sure be using them again. Our experience was amazing & we highly recommend Joe & Kris. We cannot thank them enough for being a part of our special day & for their love & light instilled for us on our wedding day. We wish them love & light on their wedding day & hope they are equally as lucky as we felt we were on our day.
