The Reception was Phenomenal! They kept the dance floor PACKED the entire time. It was incredible. I can’t put into words how much fun we had. ”Candi”
Skyline was INCREDIBLE!!!!!! They kept our guests on the dance floor all night long and really set a wonderful tone for the evening. They are so diverse from the classics to pop to rock to country. I have had so many compliments from guests.”Elizabeth
The dance floor was packed until the last possible song, and a lot of guests took their business cards which tell me they were impressed too. They even learned to play Zorba the Greek for me! Although more expensive than a dj, worth every single penny without hesitation!”Dina”
Skyline is the Band to use if you want your wedding to be the one everyone is talking about for months afterwards. Ross is not only a great singer but a great MC as well. He knows exactly what song to play to not only get people up on the dance floor but to keep them up on the dance floor! Music is continuous though out the entire evening, even during breaks someone is always up and performing. Every song sounds like it is straight out of the original recording and the energy that comes from this group is unreal! From the amazing vocals to the cranking rhythm section to the amazing horns, this Band is a must for any wedding where music is a priority! Ross and Skyline, thank you for making our wedding the one that everyone is raving about!

Skyline was INCREDIBLE!!!!!! They kept our guests on the dance floor all night long and really set a wonderful tone for the evening. They are so diverse and from the classics to pop to rock to country. I have had so many compliments from guests – many wanted their information for potential future events of their own! They are also so reliable–I got married 4 days after Sandy and despite the power losses, gas issues and cell phone problems, every single member of the band was there. I would recommend Skyline to anyone and I truly believe they are a MUST for any wedding/event! Thank you Skyline for an AMAZING night!

Skyline Orchestra Band were absolutely fantastic! We are still receiving compliments about how amazing they were from our guests. They were just incredible and so easy to communicate with prior to our wedding. They played such a large variety of songs that pleased the whole crowd. I truly cannot thank them or recommend them enough to everyone! Thank you
Elizabeth | 5 out of 5 stars
AMAZING! Guests are stilllll raving about them. We booked the band without seeing them live. We live out of state so we couldn’t really go see anyone. My parents had gone to a wedding where Code Bleu was playing, they fell in love with the band. We tried to book them but they were already taken for our date so we went with Skyline Orchestras. We had our doubts when we booked them, I was a little worried since we didn’t actually know what they sounded like. needless to say, we had a lot of questions. They were so responsive. Answered any and all questions we had and also answered questions we didn’t asked, but should’ve.
We used the keyboardist for both the ceremony and cocktail hour, he was fine. We did a classical ceremony, so it wasn’t anything special.
the Reception was Phenomenal! They kept the dance floor PACKED the entire time. It was incredible. I can’t put into words how much fun we had. We had a photobooth with props and by the end of the night, most of the band has a piece on! You can tell that the band was having a great time as well!
I’m SO glad we booked them and would recommend them to ANYONE! They are a band with talent!
I was initially a little nervous when my husband said he wanted a band. We went to several showcases before we saw Skyline and I was unimpressed. I was afraid none of the songs would sound like they do on the radio. However, when we saw Skyline, I was immediately sold. Everyone in the band was amazing. The majority of our guests were younger in their late 20’s and 30’s and they absolutely loved the band. The dance floor was packed the entire time. People came up to us and couldn’t believe how quickly the night went because they were dancing the entire time. Lou MC’d the event and he was wonderful. The entire band was great. I have no complaints.

Hi Mike! Thank you, thank you, thank you! You and the rest of Skyline were phenomenal. The night was incredibly fun with such a lively atmosphere. You performed the first dance flawlessly and listened to all of my song requests, while also playing some incredible songs I never would have thought to suggest. The whole band was incredibly professional and we appreciated that you really did “play continuously”. The tables were empty for most of the night because EVERYONE was on the dance floor. I believe that the band makes the party, and you really did make our party. Everybody is raving about the band!!! We will be sure to write reviews on all of the bridal sites!

I wanted to let you know how thankful Brendan and I are to have you and the rest of Skyline Orchestra Band play at our wedding. With nearly 250 guests at the wedding, I think every single person asked “who was that amazing band?” You guys not only played the music well, you kept the pace of the wedding moving all night. From the guitar at cocktail hour to the extra hour of the night you guys sounded amazing. The fact that people were throwing money on the stage to keep playing well after the wedding ended should act as a testimonial to how great you guys were. Thank you for playing such a big part of our day.

Dear Mike, I just want to thank you and the entire Skyline Band for the absolutely incredible job you all did for our daughter Rachel’s wedding this past Sunday. I don’t even know where to begin. You were so good, that people kept on asking me all day “where did you get this band????” They are fantastic!! There was a lot of positive energy and happiness in the room and everyone was up dancing thanks to you!
The songs you played were all amazing, especially those we requested. I will forever remember my “little girl” dancing with her dad to “Lido “. That song and image will be something close to our hearts for many years to come, thanks to you. I’ve always believed if the food and band are great, the party will be a success. There is no doubt in our minds that our party was fabulous, because you guys were simply incredible. I can go on and on and probably will when I speak of our wedding for years to come, and about the band that brought so much to our party. Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts, for being so wonderful and making our special day something we will remember forever.
angelica & will
Thank you so much for doing such an awesome job at our wedding on May 5th at the Royalton. We cannot tell you how happy we were with everyone’s performance. It was great! You learned and played our 1st dance song beautifully. Our family and friends were raving about you too! Thanks again for making our wedding reception great. We have been referring you to all of our engaged family/friends because we want to see you all again!
I just wanted to thank you and Skyline for such an excellent performance! Everyone loved it and we got a lot of compliments on your performance! I don’t think I’ve seen such a packed dance floor and we had so much fun. Even my father was impressed (which is a task in itself) and that says a lot. I will definitely recommend you to others! I also wanted to see if you had a list of songs that you played throughout our wedding. I wanted to make a few CDs for my family because we loved all of the songs so much!! Definitely let me know if you have it-we loved the selection, the transitions, pretty much everything. Thank you again for making our day so FANTASTIC!! It’s definitely a night to remember and we will always remember it. Please thank everyone at Skyline!
An overdue note, but I wanted to thank you for the FABULOUS music at my son’s wedding recently at Harbor Links. You guys were SO good at the music, the vocals and taking the pulse of the audience. I will say that the McNally family and friends are usually a very easy crowd. And naturally, a great big THANK YOU for letting me join in the fun with my rendition of Brown Sugar and Jumpin’ Jack Flash. My son and his bride got such a kick out of it….another special part of a very special day! Again, you guys were GREAT.
rachel & bill
Dear Mike & all of the members of Skyline, Thank you all so much for helping to make our wedding at the Inn@New Hyde Park so amazing. We are still receiving compliments on our fabulous band. We had so many specific requests for the day, and you fulfilled them all. Our entrance to “Enter Sandman” and our first dance “Will You Still Love Me” were so awesome, and we will never forget your rendition of “The Lido Shuffle”. We will be recommending your band for many years to come.
You guys were absolutely fabulous!!! I hope everyone got a chance to eat something and that the gratuity was appropriate. Everyone really loved Skyline and if there is anything I can do to pass that message I would be more than happy to do so.
Patrick & Noreen
Ross, We want to thank you for the amazing job you & your bandmates did at our daughter Tricia & son-in-law Troy’s wedding this past Saturday at Rolling Hills Country Club in Wilton CT. The bride & groom wanted a “dance party” and Skyline clearly delivered. We have received many accolades about the wedding with particular emphasis on the “outstanding band”. A special thanks for the beautiful rendition of the father/daughter dance …with the bride’s brother’s “cutting-in”. Again, thanks for a special celebration.
Dear Marisa, Although this is late in coming, I just had to get in touch and tell you how fabulous Skyline was at Regina & Randy’s wedding (Tappan Hill). Our guests were raving about how great the music was! They sounded great and truly interacted with the guests, making it entertaining and fun for those who wanted to dance, as well as, those who preferred to watch. We set out to make this wedding celebration a unique and special day and Skyline made it possible to surpass our expectations.
MEG & PAT
Dear Skyline, Thank you so much for being the most amazing band for our wedding day. Every single guest said that you were the best band they had ever heard at a wedding. We are all still raving about you four months later. You made our wedding reception absolutely spectacular!
ERIN & VINCENT
We cannot begin to explain how amazing you made our wedding reception at the Royalton. You all have such phenomenal talent and we were so lucky to have you perform at our celebration. Our family and friends are still RAVING about our spectacular band. Everyone was out on the dance floor from start to finish, and we have YOU to thank for that! You helped make our wedding the perfect fairy tale we will never forget. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
MICHAEL & KERI
To all the amazing artists at Skyline, Thank you so much for the amazing performance you gave us for our wedding! We had the most amazing time! We have gotten so many compliments on the great band-no one stopped dancing for the entire night which is exactly what we wanted!! Thank you so much!!
LAURA & PETER
Thank you so much for such an energetic and amazing performance! You guys blew everyone out of the water and exceeded our already high expectations! There wasn’t a single moment through the night where the dance floor wasn’t packed. You really made our wedding magnificent and so much fun in our eyes and our guests’ eyes – that means so much to us. We would definitely recommend you to anyone and everyone! We hope you all enjoy the holidays and have a wonderful New Years!
MARY & MIKE
Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our wedding the amazing day that it was. You all set the tone from the very beginning and kept it going all night long. Months later, we’re still getting compliments on the band how fantastic you were, and how good you sounded. Mike, thank you for taking the time to walk us through everything and for being so respectful of our requests. And for learning and playing so well the song I danced to with my father, Maria Elena. We had an amazing time and it really was the best party we’ve ever been to. We’re so glad it was ours.
Steve & pam
Thank you so much for making our wedding as amazing as it was. From the moment the reception started, people were on the dance floor and did not leave until the last song. It was exactly the reception we wanted. Guests are still talking about how amazing you were and so are we! It has been a pleasure working with you and we hope to see you all soon!
nicole & steven
Thank you so much for performing at our wedding on July 3, 2008. The music was amazing. Skyline made the party a great success. People are still talking about the wonderful band at our wedding. PS Mike was a pleasure to work with!

Not only were we extremely pleased with how you performed at our wedding, but your kind and personal ways made our wedding day extra special. Once again thank you for everything! You are the BEST!!
marc & sharon
To Everyone At Skyline. Your Band was Awesome! That’s pretty much all we heard from those who were in attendance. You did a terrific job. We appreciate the hard work you all did in preparation for our wedding.
brian & jen
Dear Skyline, You are the best band we’ve ever heard! I was nervous because neither my husband to be nor I had heard you personally play live because we live out of state. Mike assured me I had nothing to worry about and he was right! There was NOT a song where the dance floor was not overflowing with guests. I still have guests calling me to rave about the band! You guys are spectacular! Thank you for helping us have the most perfect and fun wedding.
melissa & jim
Dear Skyline, Thank you for making the trip up to West Point. You were amazing. Everyone had only compliments and praises for you. You really did a great job and to prove it, the dance floor was packed the whole night. You really made our wedding unforgettable.
patty & brian ball
Dear Skyline; Thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect. You were Fabulous! The Music, The Energy, Our guests enjoyed themselves so much they cannot stop talking about how you made our wedding so much fun. We cannot wait to have our next party to have you again. Thanks so much!
nicole & joe zemarkowitz
Dear Skyline, We just wanted to say thanks for being one of the reasons that our wedding was so much fun! Everyone that day was telling us it was the best wedding band they had ever heard. One of our friends said they considered canceling their band because they were so impressed! Along with us and our guests having a great time, it seemed as if you guys had a great time also. Thanks again, keep up the great work!!
joseph & nicole
We just wanted to express our most sincere thanks to you and the entire band. The night was unforgettable, and we have an awesome band to thank. We keep hearing from all of our guests that Skyline was one of the best bands they’ve ever heard at a wedding. We will be sure to recommend your band to any of our friends or colleagues that are looking for live music. Also, Marisa was great to work with, and was very easy going and friendly. She was helpful throughout the entire process and answered all of our calls and questions quickly. She made everything stress-free. Again, great job, from start to finish!
Yes, I was the father of the bride. Yes, I probably am a little bias when I write this. Sunday, July 2, 2017 The Skyline Orchestra performed at my daughter’s wedding at Crest Hollow Country Club. They were 100 times better than any Facebook showcase. The music started and 5 hours later the crowd was screaming for one more song over and over. They had the guests dancing all night long. They had the guests singing to the music all night long. I can’t tell you how many friends came over to me and told me that almost every song sounded like the real recordings. Their never ending medleys were great. Their father daughter and mother son dances will be a memory forever. I am hoping that the video has the songs in it. I am playing the last 4 songs over and over on my Alexa at home. I wish the band had a CD of the wedding.
So to you Ross, and the 11 piece orchestra, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping to make this wedding so special. I can’t believe how many phone calls we have gotten telling us how great you were.
Once again, thank you so much from the Spector and Kelleher families.
JACKIE & FRED
Dear Skyline, thank you so much for being a part of our wedding. You were amazing! We are still getting compliments from our friends and family. You were the best decision we made. Thank you so much!
GEORGE & sTACY
Dear Ross, Marisa and Skyline Orchestras, Thank you so much for an amazing job at our daughter’s wedding. It’s a couple of weeks since the wedding day and the reviews from our friends & family keep pouring in – the band was AWESOME!! The mix of music was great & you really kept the party going. You did a terrific job of blending in the Greek music, the transitions were very smooth. You know we loved the extra sax & trombone. They are so entertaining!! Thanks also for accommodating our son Evan when he sang the song for the Father/Daughter dance. It meant a lot to Niki to have her brother sing at her wedding. Evan’s second song was a wonderful surprise for all of us. The wedding reception was a blast, and we credit you with making it a fun night!!
KRISTEN AND RYAN
Dear Skyline, Thank you for being a part of our wedding at Ocean Bleu in October! You all were absolutely amazing, we still have guests talking about you guys. The dance floor was filled to the brim the entire night thanks to all of you. You did such a wonderful job learning our wedding song, “You’re My Diamond” by Stephen Kellogg! Thank you again.
BRAD & NICOLE
Dear Skyline, Thank you all for making our wedding day so special. The music was awesome and everybody had so much fun because of you!! We have gotten so many compliments about how talented you are. We enjoyed every song.
MARTY & ROSANGELA
Dear Skyline, Many, Many thanks for making our day a Fairy Tale Come True. Your guys were extremely professional and very entertaining. Loved by everyone. Everyone expressed your ability to get them out of their seats & Dancing. I commend all of you!
DANIELLE & ANTHONY
Skyline, you were an extremely big hit at our wedding! Thank you so much for keeping us & our guests happy on the dance floor.
TARA & STEPHEN PINZINO
Dear Skyline, Thank you for being a part of the most perfect day of our lives. Your professionalism, expertise and talent helped make our wedding day wonderful. Our friends & family are still talking about the “greatest” band ever! We all had so much fun thanks to you. We still can’t get over it. You learned many songs for us and each one was better than the next. I think that meant the most to us. Thank you.
JASON & ERICA
We cannot thank you enough for helping to make our day so extra special! We could no have asked for a more fun, coordinated, energetic and talented wedding band! We have gotten such compliments on the energy and entertainment you brought to the day. Thanks for helping us coordinate our bridal party dance and first dance songs. The both worked out perfectly! Mike- we would really like to thank you personally for taking the time and effort to ensure our special requests were followed through exactly as we wished. We will highly recommend you to anyone looking for a fantastic wedding band!
SUSAN & JIMMY CONNELLY
I cannot thank you and the entire band enough for last night. Everyone had an excellent time! We were thrilled with the music and the entertainment. I will always be happy to recommend you to anyone that is getting married! You did a wonderful job! Thank you so much!
Saw all three bands at various weddings and showcases (Skyline, Rhapsody and Code Bleu) and am SO happy my fiancé and I chose Skyline (all good, but none came close to the excellence of Skyline plus younger overall look/feel than Code Bleu). They were awesome! They are ALL great and EVERYONE loved them. Kept us dancing the entire night and my guests are STILL talking about them (especially Lou/MC and Gary/singer)! We got who we wanted — SKYLINE!! Trust me — go attend one of their showcases and if you think they are great there, they will be even better at your event!!
A+ This band literally rocked the house. We had 10 musicians and they were the single best part of the wedding reception! Our guests continue to RAVE about them and have singled out different singers as their favorite, which goes to show that all of the singers in the band were excellent. They learned new songs for our Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances and sounded exactly like the original artists. Mike, the band leader was very easy to work with. After having worked at dozens of weddings when I was in college, I knew that a good band was worth the investment, and it was the single best investment we made during the wedding planning process.
A++++++++++++ We went to a bridal showcase and heard a band, Code Bleu, play. We really liked them a lot but when I spoke to their manager, Sean, they were booked for our date. Sean recommended his partner’s band that actually played at his wedding. I went to the showcase without DH because he was taking an exam at school and booked Skyline that same night without even consulting DH! Although he was a little peeved at first, when I took him to a showcase a month or so later, he completely agreed! They have such a great energy and knew exactly what to play to keep the crowd going the whole day. The dance floor was packed until the last possible song, and a lot of guests took their business cards which tell me they were impressed too. They even learned to play Zorba the Greek for me! Although more expensive than a dj, worth every single penny without hesitation!
A+++ Skyline had to be one of our favorite vendors. They were amazing. Guests were coming up to me all night telling me it was the best wedding band they ever heard!!! I had a Sunday afternoon wedding and the dance floor was packed all day. They really got involved with the guests and really seemed to be enjoying themselves as if they were not even at work and just having fun. My dad and I danced to “Lullaby” by Billy Joel and the keyboard player sounded so much like him that my dad thought they were playing it on cd till he looked and saw it was the band. The band leader kept in touch with me a lot and really had listened to all my requests. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a band.
A++++++++++++++++++++++++ We used Skyline– they were phenomenal. DH and I are both performers, and most of our friends are actors/musicians, and we were all very impressed with them. Our gang is a picky group when it comes to music and everyone raved about them. Plus, the Skyline guys were really accommodating about taking time to rehearse with my friends who sang during the ceremony.
I just wanted to HIGHLY recommend the band Skyline. They played at my wedding a few weeks ago and they were amazing. I never heard them but picked them on recommendations from my MOH, mom & sister. I’ve never received so many compliments on a vendor. There wasn’t a single time when people weren’t dancing. They’re reasonably priced and well worth it. My MOH went to another wedding that they had played which prompted her to recommend them, she also loved them.
Hi Mike: I never actually met you – we were so busy at the wedding, as you were.Everyone we speak to has said that they absolutely loved the orchestra and that they have never seen so many people dancing through the evening. I too loved the music and the fact that you played continuously – did you guys ever get to eat? Thank you for all the communications you had with Batel. You made the evening an amazing event. Anytime you need a recommendation, please do hesitate to contact me, and I am sure Batel and Norman feel the same way!
BOB & DINA
Dear Skyline, Thank you all for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding. The music was perfect and everybody commented about you. All our guests had a terrific time. Thank you again for everything, you were GREAT!!
