Stop what you're doing and hire Joelle & The Pinehurst Trio now. You won't regret it. I was running into trouble trying to find a band that met our standards. As a professional musician, I found most "wedding" bands to be lacking-falling short with weak arrangements, out of tune singers, and/or outdated styles. I heard about Joelle from a mutual musician friend. I heard them play in NYC and knew I had to hire them. We had a black tie wedding and had a jazz trio play during cocktail hour and then the full band for dancing. We hired an extra singer (Blake-get him if you can), 2 horns, and a guitarist. Everyone was dancing all night. I can't recommend them enough!
There are many options as to the song list, the size of the band, the number and length of sets, as well as the sound system and house music.
While the quartet is well-suited for any event, having a larger group gives us a bigger sound. Having a horn section will help a Motown or Big-Band sound come across, whereas having a guitar player can lend a pop/rock or indie sound. That being said, the quartet is fully prepared to rock a dance party on their own!
With our jazz and classical backgrounds, a dynamic range of Wedding Ceremonies are possible, from standard classical repertoire to instrumental arrangements of pop tunes, and anything folk, indie, or in between. We can create original arrangements and contract additional musicians to play strings or woodwinds.
The Joelle Lurie Band has the experience to pull off big events (Rainbow Room, Top of the Rock, Birdland, Lincoln Center, NY Stock Exchange, and more). With the talent and love that go into our performances, we make every event a memorable one. We surpass bigger event bands in musicianship and in the ability personalize your experience --and at a fraction of the cost.
If you are interested in booking the Joelle Lurie Band, we require a contract and a non-refundable deposit (you may add extras after booking).
We will also help guide you through the planning process and help ensure that you get the most out of working with us. We will always be able to get in touch with you and will make sure that our musical contribution is the perfect accompaniment to your wedding! Please let us know if you have any questions!
