As experts in playing music that is both authentic and true to both style and vibe, we can assist with repertoire selections to fit the ambiance of your event and flawlessly compliment your theme.

If your event involves dancing… that’s right up our alley! We have a huge and incredibly comprehensive repertoire of the greatest dance music from all decades — starting in the 1920’s right through to todays top 40 hits. If your crowd is a mixed age group… no problem… we can play a great mix to make everyone happy. If your crowd is more or less around the same age range, we’ll tap into their tastes and give them an enjoyable night to remember!

We are experienced at following run-of-shows and scripts, as well as working with event directors/stage managers, and flawlessly executing music cues and walk on/walk offs. We are comfortable on com systems and adept at accommodating game-time shifts/changes while still making it feel completely seamless to your audience. No director, no stage manager… also no problem! We are extremely self-sufficient and we’re comfortable calling our own music cues if needed. We’re equally good at 'follow the leader' and 'play it by ear' and everything in between!

We are completely versed in the most elegant jazz, American songbook, lounge and bossa nova styles. We can create a totally elegant listening, background, cocktail, and/or dining experience. We perform Gershwin, Cole Porter, and all the greats on a regular basis so our music is seamless and fluid. As a bonus… we can play jazzy instrumental versions of current top 40, Y2K, classic pop, Motown, R&B, classic soul and classic rock songs for awesome ambiance impact. Music for ambiance can be purely instrumental or it can include male and/or female vocals!

Hi Rich, Thanks so much for performing at our Top Dog gala – everyone had so much fun and you guys were wonderful to work with! Hope you have a happy holiday season! Best, Katherine G—Special Events Associate—The Animal Medical Center


Rich, I wanted to thank you again for making the inaugural Night Out For Nops such a wonderful success! You guys were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, and I know that we couldn't have pulled it off without you. People are still talking about how great the band was! Please feel free to use Joey and I as a reference if the need should ever arise. You guys are the best! Fred W


Dear Rich: The New York Edge Orchestra was the perfect band for my family’s company 125th year anniversary party. We had a cocktail hour, speeches, dinner, and dancing and the band knew the right mood for each phase of our night. They can play such a vast selection of music that old and young enjoyed the event. Each request was able to be fulfilled and the band was able to get the crowd going through the evening. It was such fun to have an interactive set. We definitely will be using them in the future and recommend them for any event cooperate or personal. On a personal note, I especially want to thank you for assisting me with moving the party along.  Your help with announcing the awards presentation and organizing the group picture was especially appreciated! Best of luck to you and the band. My very best regards, Tom—Chairman/CEO—Jacobson & Company, Inc.


Dear Rich & New York Edge, Thanks so much for such an incredible performance! It’s pretty tough to get the largest crowd in Columbia Business School history (1100 graduate students from all over the world) out on the dance floor – and keep them there despite the temptation of open bar and lots of food! – but you guys definitely did it! In addition to the wonderful music, you guys are great to work with – flexible, professional and trustworthy. As a non-professional party planner, it was a pretty daunting task to execute such a large event, but I knew from the beginning that the one thing I wouldn’t have to worry about was the music (both the band and the DJ). You guys were awesome. Thanks again – and feel free to use me as a reference anytime! Lauren F—Columbia Business School


Rich, Your band was fantastic.  We look forward to seeing you again here at The Belle Haven Club. Thank you, Alfredo J—Clubhouse Manager—Bell Haven Yacht Club


Dear Rich, I just wanted to tell you that you and your group were just wonderful at my daughter Miriam’s surprise birthday party at the Water Club.

Dear Rich, I want to thank you again for a wonderful time at our Holiday Party. The band was absolutely fabulous! Everyone had an amazing time, and I've had numerous people approach me afterwards to tell me what a great job I did with picking a band for the party. The band played a great variety of music, and really got the crowd into it! I honestly thought we'd be there all night trying to get people off the dance floor. Thank you again! You really made CDM's Holiday Party a hit! I would certainly recommend New York Edge to anyone! Elyssa I—Cline, Davis & Mann

Dear Rich & the New York Edge, I just wanted to let you know that the bands performance on Saturday was the highlight of an extremely successful holiday party for NYU/Bellvue Hospital. The song selection was varied and superb, the music was smooth and constantly upbeat, the three singers were each “right on”, and most importantly, the group was fun, interacting and firing up the guests. The feedback from our guests has been uniformly positive.
The string quartet playing during the cocktail hour was a wonderful addition, adding a classy touch. Thank you again for working with us to make the party special. David—Dr. David S—Department of Medicine—NYU Medical Center
