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!

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!!!

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”!

Hi guys,
We just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for Friday night. All of the music was excellent!! We really couldn't have been happier and our guests are still talking about it, honestly it could not have gone better!

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,
