Reviews and Testimonials


We cannot thank you enough for making our night all we ever dreamed of. You were the first, easiest, and best "wedding decision" we made! So grateful.

Warmest Regards,

Alli and Pat 

Hi Pete & Tradewinds,
The party was great and you guys were spectacular. Seriously, one of the best bands I have ever heard at a party and as you know, the band makes the party. Everybody thought you guys were great. The playlist as well as the musicianship was top notch. I can't thank you enough.

Hi Pete,

I wanted to take the time to thank Tradewinds for what I can only describe as a truly outstanding performance at our wedding. Honestly, you guys were amazing and even better than the lofty praise that we had heard about the band. My wife and I had the best time, which I attribute in large part to you guys keeping the mood fun and up beat with terrific music. Every one of our guests we have spoken with has also told me how great you guys were and how much fun the band made everything. I cannot thank you guys enough and if anyone ever needs a band recommendation, I will absolutely send them your way. Thank you again for everything.Best Regards,

Tom Boyle

simply put...

you guys made the day! you went above and beyond the call of duty with the playlist, the intensity and just the overall awesomeness that you guys brought to the reception. I'm still getting texts and emails from people telling me how awesome you guys were and that they want your contact info for their weddings.

for about 5 seconds we were wondering if people were actually going to get up and dance for a day wedding..... we were put at ease by the 2nd song when pretty much every guest was on the floor, including stacey's 90 year old grandparents and my 85 year old grandmother

aside from the entire day just being a complete blur or excitement, and nerves and just overall craziness, I distinctly remember love shack and come on eileen, and of course the "encore" with hard to handle just such a great time man, I can't thank you and the crew enough, the guys all played so well and the girls sang their little buns off once again man, best and funnest day of my life and "the best wedding ever" according to several attendees like I said man, you guys made the day so fun!
infinite thanks,

Pete & Tradewinds,
Thank you so much for a great job at our wedding. People are still complimenting us on the music and how much fun they had. You guys really made the night memorable! Thanks again.
All the best,
Tara and Bobby

You and your band were great! You never let us down and as soon as we book next year's party date, you'll be one of the first people I call. You are a very professional group with a lot of talent. Everyone is always excited when they hear that Tradewinds will be providing the live music. Thank you. Always great working with you! Chris Court

Music+Tradewinds A++++++++++

we hit the freaking jackpot with these guys. Most people on Long Island have seen them on Fire Island or Nicky's and you know how lucky we got them.  I don't think I stopped dancing for 10 minutes

The dance floor at our wedding was packed because of Tradewinds! They are an incredible band who brought so much life & fun into our special day. They are extremely professional  and went above and beyond to ensure all my requests were completed. They are diverse and have an incredible sound.  So happy we chose them to play at our wedding& I highly recommend them !

Amazing band!!!They made the event. Sax players, trumpet player and singers were dancing with us on the dancefloor. I haven't seen a wedding band like that for a long time!

Singers were super and they played every type of song. All great!

Tradewinds is hands down the absolute best band out there! From the intro song , to the first dance/parent dances, and all the music throughout the wedding, we could not be happier with our choice to book them.  Thany you Tradewinds for making our wedding one we will never forget.! Our guests constantly came up to us to tell us how AMAZING the band was!
