Amazing band!

The band was extremely flexible working with us while we navigated the pandemic and had to reschedule multiple times. We wanted a big dance party and, with them, it was worth the wait. They played an amazing show and many guest said it was one of the best weddings that they had been to because of the band. They not only played songs we picked in advance, but took requests from guests. We would highly recommend them for any event!

Life of the party!

World class performance from world class performers! BIg City All Star Band was the biggest hit at our wedding and we constantly have our guests reaching out to us to say how much they loved the band. They had our guests dancing till 1 am and the dance floor was packed. Cannot say enough to recommend them, they were phenomenal.

Best band ever!

I don't think i's often that your wedding guests STILL talk about the band at your wedding a year after your special day. Well, that's our case having had Big City All Star Band play at our wedding in July 2021. Countless of our guests are STILL sharing memories of "the best live band they've ever heard". Carlin and his band members are so incredibly talented, playing a vast repertoire of music. When you can consistently appease the musical tastes of your entire guest list, you know you are doing something right. Prior to our wedding day, Carlin was a great communicator and wonderful to work with as he was flexible during ever changing covid restrictions and understanding and willing to discuss options within our budget. Carlin was also able to set up the mics and sound system and play our pre-selected music during the ceremony and cocktail hour. A complete surprise and amazing bonus was the band's photographer, Nicole Majury, taking phenomenal photographs of our reception and sharing them with us! Seriously, book Big City All Star Band. You will have NO regrets, I promise!

Worth every penny

Big City All Stars was incredible. I had so many comments from guests about how good they were/the music was. Carlin was super easy to work with, flexible and is of course very talented. I highly recommend them for any event.

Excellent Band, unlike any other

This is a fabulous band! I am a wedding planner by profession and when it was my turn to get married, I had no doubt in my mind I needed to book BCAS. Actually, my husband and I booked our wedding date around the band's availability (!) so they were one of the first vendors we hired and boy did they not disappoint. One year later, everyone still talks about our wedding reception. From a guitarist at the ceremony to first dance to the band sets to the DJ-ing in between, this is THE band to book. I always recommend them to my clients. You will not regret it!

Dream Wedding

You need to hire this band! My now wife had experienced their performance at a friend's wedding in 2019 and knew she wanted them to play at our wedding. This was one of the best decisions we could possibly make. From beginning to end, they were straight-up FIRE. The energy in the room was next level! They sounded fantastic. They are so talented. The instrumentals and vocals were on point and they engaged with the crowd so well. No one left the floor all night and our guests could not stop raving about them (even the next day we kept getting texts about their performance!). I spent a good portion of the night explaining how we "found them" to everyone who asked! Carlin was fantastic and provided intermittent DJ services for the cocktail hour, dinner, and between band breaks. He was so awesome to communicate with and went above and beyond to find traditional Portuguese music for our dinner service, which I requested and my attendees loved. He was so good with the last minute changes we requested. I can't praise these talented musicians enough. If you are lucky enough to book them, your guests will never forget your special night or event!
