So, you're planning an event and want a band that represents you, not some cornball over-priced band that specializes in all things tacky...enter MIXTAPE: a cover band for hipsters.
We are just the band to make your event unique and representative of you and your steez, all without breaking the bank.
Holler at us for corporate events, cocktail parties, benefits, weddings (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception or all three!), anniversary parties, birthday parties, art openings, store openings, door openings...we're down for any soiree...
MIXTAPE: a cover band for hipsters is Wedding Band 2.0. Set out to evolve a stagnant industry, MIXTAPE offers a fresh and fetching approach to rocking weddings in every way; from the way they engage with clients, to their look, and most importantly to the songs they play.
Actively not your parents' wedding band, MIXTAPE is a disco-free zone with a mantra of "No to the Bee Gees, Yes to the Black Keys!" The band's infinite repertoire spans from modern indie darlings like Phoenix, MGMT, Arcade Fire and Beck, to classic and glam rockers like the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, AC/DC, and Queen, to '80s and New Wave gems like Devo, The Cure, Talking Heads and The Clash, to '90s and grunge favorites like Weezer, Nirvana, The Pixies and Pavement to those special pop hits that we all (including material your parents will remember) can agree are awesome like Paul Simon, Hall & Oates, Stevie Wonder and, of course, Michael Jackson. We are the only band around that offers ourselves as FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE. That means, if you want to hear a night full of all the classic rock you can dream of or if you want a night chock full of ultra modern indie rock, we can make that happen!
The band's most basic six-piece configuration includes female vocalist, male vocalist and rhythm guitarist, lead electric guitarist, electric bassist, keyboardist and drummer. From there, MIXTAPE can add strings and horns for a fun and full sound and look. Comprised of conservatory trained musicians, the band can also provide classical music for ceremonies and jazz or bluegrass or cocktail hours, making for very slick one-stop shopping for wedding music.
On the scene since just 2011, the band already has earned "Best of the Knot 2013" in Manhattan, has been mentioned in BRIDES, and has played some of the most stunning and prestigious wedding venues such as Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Osborn Castle and Cipriani Wall Street, as well as the hippest and Brooklyn-est venues around like the Bell House, the Green Building and Brooklyn Winery.
