Weddings

Baby Soda loves playing weddings, and this early traditional jazz is the perfect wedding music. The older generation remembers it fondly, their children are discovering the music for themselves and the toddlers dance.

We can provide music for the ceremony, cocktail reception, dinner and dancing, or any portion of the event. We can play traditional Jewish wedding music as well as our jazz repertoire.

For more info, fill out the contact form on this page.  We will get back to you with pricing, links to videos & reviews, and answers to F.A.Q.’s.

Baby Soda Wedding Reviews

We are a family of amateur musicians, so we were seeking true music, rather than a traditional wedding band. Baby Soda was absolutely terrific for our event. They were spot on regarding the choice of pieces. And they were super flexible and creative in thinking about music for the ceremony. Highly recommended.

We count hiring Baby Soda Jazz Band as one of the best decisions of our entire wedding. Aaron, Peter and the whole band are total pros — they also went above and beyond setting the mood and making the ceremony and cocktail hour feel like a fairy tale come to life. They set the vibe for the whole night and our friends and family continue to mention their immense talent. We repeat — one of the most special parts of our day!

We knew we wanted a really cool, unique music experience for us and our wedding guests on our big day. We love New Orleans-style jazz music, and if you do, too, and you’re getting married in or around NYC, you cannot do any better than Baby Soda. They are excellent musicians, Aaron (their manager) is cool and easy to work with, and the band played everything we wanted, setting the mood perfectly for the pre-ceremony cocktails, ceremony, and the first part of the reception (we had a DJ for the last part of the reception). And they totally rocked the Hora! Definitely worth the money.

We can’t recommend Baby Soda Jazz Band enough. At our wedding, they provided stellar musicianship, perfect sensitivity to the room and the guests, and a wide knowledge of their musical idiom. Attire, and overall presentation worked perfectly with our retro, art-deco, refined vibe, and the music was absolutely swinging. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Baby Soda Jazz Band.

We hired Baby Soda to play before our wedding ceremony, the processional and recessional and for our cocktail hour. The band were fantastic, they set the mood beautifully with their 1920’s style jazz and really looked the part as well. The guys were really professional, turning up early, setting up with no fuss and knowing exactly what they needed to do. Organizing the band to play was also very easy, contacting their manager Aaron to sort out the details, he was very helpful and assisted us with everything we would need to know. We were so happy to have Baby Soda play our wedding and would highly recommend anyone do the same.
