Sylwia and Pawel are two of the sweetest people we have ever met! The couple were looking to have a traditional Polish wedding and Polish reception for their mostly-Polish guests. We met at least three or four times in person to hammer out the details about their wedding ceremony, the music selection, and anything else they wanted. They really wanted to include as many Polish traditions as possible.
First, early in the morning of their big day, before they took off for the church, they had our accordion player, Lukas, and vocalist, Adrian, come to their houses for traditional Polish blessing. The duo played some popular polish folk songs “przyspiewki” entertaining the parents and bridal party followed by the hymn. Then came the church, where Alicja (violinist) and Magda performed.
We have to say that when we saw Sylwia walking down the aisle, we were barely able to keep the tears from our eyes! When it was time for the reception, the band, featuring Ania and Adrian as lead singers, kept the crowd dancing all night, performing mostly Polish songs. It was a perfect Polish Wedding in America.

Jessica had initially booked another Polish band for her wedding, but a few months later, she and her fiancé, Matt, happened to be guests at a wedding where we were playing.
We received a phone call very early the next day: it was Mr. Perkowski, Jessica’s father, calling to tell us that his daughter wanted to cancel the other band because she absolutely HAD TO HAVE US at her wedding. We still smile when we think of that phone call!
Mr. Perkowski spoke with us about the music details and truly surprised us! We had assumed that, as a Polish man, he would favor more traditional Polish music, but to our surprise, he wanted
mostly American hits!
About a month before the wedding, Jessica and Matt welcomed us into their lovely Brooklyn home, and together, along with their parents, we finalized all the details. In the end, the bride and groom chose our largest line up, featuring three American singers and two Polish singers, opting for a more American music program.
For the church mass, they chose our string quartet featuring a vocalist, and we performed during the entire mass. The cocktail hour found our string quartet playing a mix of pop songs in fun arrangements. Finally, during the reception, the guests hit the dance floor and partied to the hits of Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Justin Timberlake, and Stevie Wonder, to name a few! The last hour of the reception was entirely dedicated to Polish hits, and our Polish superstar performer, ADAM CHROLA, kept the crowd on their feet until the end of the night.
