About
"Finding the perfect band for my wedding was a priority for me, and I spent a lot of time shopping around for the right one. When I heard Sweet Megg and the Wayfarers, I was sold. These guys are so incredibly talented! They made our wedding truly unforgettable. All of our wedding guests loved them -- both young and old -- which was evidenced by the fact that everyone was up and dancing before the first course was even served! The morning after the wedding, everyone was still raving about how incredible the band was. Their professionalism was also unparalleled -- they were so responsive and accommodating throughout the wedding planning process. It was such a pleasure working with them!"
- From Mary Burke, wedding client 2018


From the smokey cabaret halls of Montmartre to the dingy bars of prohibition-era New York, Sweet Megg and her Wayfarers explore the sultry and sometimes crass music of the 1920s and 30s. Featuring songs from Edith Piaf, Fats Waller, Billie Holiday and more, the Wayfarers are sure to bring their rabble-rousing, fun-loving sound into every piece they perform. Featuring Ms. Megg Farrell on vocals, The Wayfarers have no problem tackling French chanson, dixieland jazz, swing, and gypsy repertoire with style, grace, and class. The group currently holds a residency at New York City's famed Top of The Standard at The Standard Hotel, and is an active part of the city's vibrant traditional and gypsy jazz music scene in NYC.

With The Wayfarers, the whole is certainly greater than the sum of its parts. You're not getting your typical "wedding band" with a rotating cast of members; you get a tight, exuberant band that has been paying dues in the jazz scene for years. The Wayfarers are sure to be a hit at your next event, whatever it may be!

They were simply amazing, from working with me to help find the perfect songs for my husband and our wedding party to walk down the aisle to, to the unbelievable talent and vibe they created for our wedding. Ryan was super helpful with planning and Megg and the guys were a dream. Everyone still talks about it :)

Sweet Megg & The Wayferers were so great! We booked them for wedding and from working with them (which was super easy) to what a fantastic band they are, The Wayferers were amazing from start to finish. Their performance was amazing! Everyone loved the music and couldn't stop talking about how great the Wayfarers were. They were fun and engaging (and even played the hora) and I can't wait to go see them play in New York sometime soon. I would highly recommend them for any event!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Sweet Megg & The Wayfarers. We had a relaxed outdoor country wedding and they provided the perfect musical accompaniment to it. All ages were thoroughly satisfied with the music, from the little kids to the grandparents. They were professional, extremely talented, and so easy to work with. Fabulous!
