From our first interaction to the last dance, Gordon and Donnamarie made the entire process seamless. Their experience was recognizable from the start as they guided us through the process, answered all of our questions, and gave recommendations that made the party unforgettable. The band arrived early to set up, the stage was organized and the lights added great ambiance. We requested music for one hour before the cocktail reception as we welcomed guests and took photos.

For the party, we chose a list of songs to play and the band filled in the blanks. Gordon is a great MC, directing the flow of the party and he really knows how to read the crowd. Gordon and his band are extremely talented musicians, we still have friends and family asking about them. We cannot thank Gordon and Donnamarie enough, we would recommend The Best Wedding Band to everyone and our day would not have been the same without them!

We loved meeting and working with The Best Wedding Band. You can feel Gordon’s amazing positive energy from the second you meet him and it does not stop until the end of the project! The whole band is extremely professional and they always deliver. We liked them so much that we consider them as friends. We wish them the very best and would recommend them unconditionally, not just for weddings but also all kinds of corporate events or celebrations.

These guys totally lived up to their name. They truly are The Best Wedding Band. We 1000% recommend them. We had so much fun, they kept the dance floor packed and they’re all incredible entertainers/musicians.

So many friends and family kept coming up to us after the wedding saying how amazing the band was. Gordon and Donnamarie are a pleasure to work with and plan. You will not be disappointed. Pick The Best Wedding Band and you’ll have The Best Wedding.

My husband and I, as well as every single one of our guests, were thrilled with the band through the whole evening! Our guests repeatedly came over to us to share how much they enjoyed The Best Wedding Band! They exceeded our expectations over and over – and we had high expectations given how good the showcase had been! The band was tight and rehearsed, and the song selection was diverse and programmed impeccably from start to finish. We are musicians ourselves, as well as many of our guests so we were really looking forward to having the band play at our wedding. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night, slow songs and fast songs! The level of professionalism and talent was top-notch.

The singers and musicians were fantastic. Gordon and the whole band really made the whole evening come together seamlessly. We could not have been more happy with the Best Wedding Band and we cannot thank you enough!

Where do I began… The Best Wedding Band was Phenominal. They came highly recommended by a family member and oh my goodness they surpassed our wildest dreams. Our 25th anniversary elebration was off the charts and my guest are still raving about the music. From the music to the master of ceremonies, they covered it all. My affair was in March of 2018 and we have already booked them for another event in January of
2019. Gordon and Donna are awesome and was a pleasure to work with. They are reasonabily priced and they made sure that the band played to our specification and liking. They are truly “The Best” Wedding Band Ever!!!

We wish them continued success.

Our search for a wedding band was extensive, but when we saw Gordon Dukes and his band perform live at O’Flanagan’s in NYC,we knew we’d finally found what we were looking for. We were blown away by their musical talent and the fun and high energy of their performance, and we immediately booked them for our wedding. The band knocked it out of the park and had our guests dancing from the moment they stepped into the reception all the way to the moment it ended. The pianist also performed at both our ceremony and our cocktail hour, and did a beautiful job. We long ago lost track of the number of compliments we’ve received on the band, and to this very day people are still raving about them when they talk about our wedding. They were INCREDIBLE, and truly one of the highlights of our special day. Choosing “The Best Wedding Band” will be the best decision you make while planning your wedding!!! Alyssa K

I hired the band for my daughter’s wedding at the Garden City hotel. The band was spectacular!! Many guests commented on the excellence of the music. My wife and I have been dance partners for several decades and we have had experience with many bands for all types of music. This was the best.

When we were planning our wedding we realized that there are a few major expenses, like the flowers, the catering, and the band, that we could research to death, but we just couldn’t know whether we’d made a good decision until our wedding day. We just had to trust that we’d hired professionals.
I’m very happy to be able to say that our trust in Gordon Dukes and his band was repaid a hundred times over. As an emcee he managed the event extremely well, keeping the pacing just right,he had a broad list of music we could pick from and gracefully handled music we requested — what other band can do a perfect rendition of the Bob Newhart Show theme song with a week’s notice? 

The dance floor was full from the very first song and we got so many comments on how terrific the band was. I honestly can’t recommend hiring Gordon for your event strongly enough. He made a very special day for us even more special.

Absolutely incredible!!!!! The Best Wedding Band played at my wedding in October 2021. They performed with the most energy the entire night. Met our needs when it came to what type of music we wanted to have played. Gearing up for the wedding they were very professional, answered every question we had, made suggestions, and always answered our emails or phone calls quickly. Friends and family still talk about The Best Wedding Band. So many of my friends have asked for their contact so they can use them for events. We were an out of town event for them and showed up on time even earlier to get all their equipment set up and ready for the night. My family and I have nothing but good things to say about them. Gordon and Donnamarie know what they’re doing and know how to put on the most amazing performance. Anne Stuart W
