Our Orchestras and Bands
Our orchestras and bands are staffed by stellar vocalists backed by musicians who are also first-rate lead singers. For example, a nine-piece group could consist of two upfront vocalists and seven instrumentalists, four of whom also sing. Throughout your event, these six singers deliver rich vocal harmonies and contribute a wide variety of musical styles.
The size and configuration of your orchestra, band or ensemble can be adjusted to reflect your taste, meet your music requests and respect your budget.
The ken Gross Orchestra
Hot horns, excellent rhythm section, superb vocals and incredible repertoire. Featuring famed trumpeter and bandleader Ken Gross, whose style has been described as "Harry James meets Maynard Ferguson".
The Ken Gross Orchestra is the gold standard, and one of the busiest orchestras in the New York metro area.
Sterling Band Newest Addition
Jonathan, Tony and Kenny's crew not only truly replicates the classics from Sinatra, Beatles, Stones, Motown, and R&B, but BETTER THAN ANY DJ, they also sound like today's Top 40, such as Lizzo, Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish - with the added excitement of a LIVE performance!
Hire Sterling Band...you'll have a party that your guests will talk about for years!
ROCK THE HOUSE with The Beatles' "Back In The USSR", Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" or Bon Jovi's "Livin' On A Prayer". Larry and his pals sound like the real deal.
You'll agree that "ROCK SOLID ROCKS!"
SILK & SOUL
Bassist and singer Reggy B drives this soul train. The Black perspective, both hot and cool. They are masters of the R&B, Motown, Soul and Funk universe. Excellent Swing, Standards and dance music from the Golden Age of Harlem.
New York Swing
Sophisticated, full sound of Standards, traditional Swing and new Swing. Hip vocals and harmonious horns are led by trombonist and singer Sean Mahony, former bandleader at New York City's legendary Rainbow Room.
Very gorgeous and very black tie.
With a focus on Rock, Pop and Top 40, Music Machine is best-known for its energy combined with outstanding musicianship and vocals. Leader/vocalist Rob is equally accomplished on keyboards and guitar.
This talented "Machine" is primed and in great demand.
The Manhattan Project
Not your Daddy's wedding band!
Everything you want in Classic Rock and 80's Pop, faithful to the original recordings, combined with a broad range of music to please even a very mixed crowd. Lead guitarist and singer, Tony, and his crew, are talented and professional, rocking the house and filling the dance floor wherever they go.
The Courtney Colletti Band
Whenever Courtney sings or plays, there is a wonderful surge of energy that comes from him that lifts the music to a level that very few performers reach. The music becomes magical and playful, hypnotic and sensual. It's as if he weaves a spell. If you ask him how he does it, he'll tell you that he doesn't know. But he does it extremely well.
Mitch Kahn Celebrates The Great American Popular Songbook
Cabaret quality and style that is uniquely Manhattan. A handsome and gifted pianist and singer, Mitch Kahn performs the timeless music of Porter, Gershwin, Kern and Arlen, among many others. Mitch can be accompanied by a small combo or a breathtakingly full orchestra with multiple vocalists.
Think Michael Feinstein and Harry Connick, Jr.
Richie And Company
Richie's sophisticated jazz piano interpretations of Cole Porter and George Gershwin ("The Great American Songbook") have been hailed as "unparalleled in the industry." Bass player Madeline is a versatile and sultry singer, adding an extra spark to thrill any crowd. Rounding out the group are a drummer and guitarist who both sing, broadening the repertoire across many contemporary styles. A superb horn section is also a wonderful option.
