The Bailsmen were consummate professionals and the saviors of our wedding. When our first band cancelled unexpectedly, close to our date, The Bailsmen swooped in to save the day. And they absolutely killed it. From the vintage victrola horn used as megaphone to the thumping strums of the upright bass, the music sounded as good as it looked. We would recommend them highly to anyone considering a booking.

We were thrilled to have the Bailsmen play at our wedding. Many of our guests approached us days after the event and commented on, among other things, how great the band was. Some sat and listened for hours because it felt like a small, private concert. Throughout the planning process, Abraham was open to hearing our requests and giving professional opinions when we asked for them.

We asked The Bailsmen to come play at a small wedding party in Brooklyn. Every encounter we had with them up to the event, planning the party and on the day of the party was professional. They are accommodating and wonderful to work with. Beyond that, they play excellently and made our event even that much more special. I would highly recommend them without hesitation!

We hired the Bailsmen to perform at our wedding at the Museum of the Moving Image. From the initial contact to the night of the wedding, they were the friendliest, most accommodating, and thoroughly professional guys to work with. And the music! They were spectacular! Not a few people said that it was like having the best, most intimate French/gypsy hot jazz quintet in the world playing for you and your friends. And as a bonus, they are as handsome as they are talented. At the end of the evening, they asked to take pictures with us. What more could one possibly want at the end of a long day? :)

These guys were great. Easy to deal with before and during the event. Great depth to the 3 hour set list we asked for our wedding celebration. I did not hear a negative remark from the 100+ guests; everyone loved them. Highly recommended. Specs: 5 hour party, Bailsmen played for first 3 hours.

The Bailsmen were great to work with. Both professional and easy going, they were the perfect addition to our party. The music was great and totally fit the nod to the 1920s that the party needed. They were friendly and courteous with guests and came in attire that fit the theme and music we were having them play as well. They were great and I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a good Jazz band.

I am so happy that we hired The Bailsmen for the cocktail hour at our wedding reception. They are incrediably talented (check youtube) and they really set the mood for the eveninig. When our guest walked into the reception, they were already playing, adding a whole level of Brooklyn-chic elegance. Since the wedding, we have recieved bountiful feeback on them: "where did you find them", "they are so talented - and I know musicians", "they are so handsome", "what amazing musicians", etc, etc, etc. We have looked back at our wedding these past few weeks, and realize that, for the $$, hiring The Bailsmen was one of the best value added for the evening. Hire them!

The Bailsmen played at our wedding reception yesterday and provided exactly the mood we were hoping for. Abraham kept in great communication throughout the booking and planning and preparation process. All we had to do was tell him the three instruments we wanted and The Bailsmen showed up at our reception right on time and created a great event. They were very easygoing and fun and our guests raved about them. We will book them again as soon as possible!
