The Placeholders are a New York City-based event band specializing in high-quality live musical entertainment. The band has successfully performed for dozens of weddings, private parties and corporate events up and down the east coast. Every performance—no matter how big or how small—showcases energetic and engaging arrangements of current and classic hits.

The Placeholders' sound and approach is a fusion of their musical tastes in all genres, old and new. The band's repertoire highlights a broad and appealing mix of rock 'n' roll sing-alongs, top 40 singles, pop classics, foot-stomping folk, funk, country and hip-hop. During a Placeholders performance, you are likely to hear anything from Prince to Tom Petty, The Lumineers to Vance Joy, Nick Jonas to The Beastie Boys, Zac Brown, The Beatles, Billy Joel, Maroon 5 and much, much more!

In addition to a full-service event band, we also offer smaller, customizable configurations for any type of event or acoustic environment. If space is an issue or if the vibe is on the quieter side, we recommend The Placeholders acoustic duo or trio, capable of setting just the right tone while still sounding full and rhythmically compelling.

Check out our entire song list below or email us directly for a detailed playlist by decade. We look forward to working with you and providing a level of musical entertainment that will leave you and your guests singing our praises!

We currently offer the following band configurations:

*Solo Artist: featuring male vocalist & acoustic guitar
*Acoustic Duo or Trio: featuring male & female vocalists, acoustic guitar, small drum kit & percussion
*Rock Trio: featuring male vocalists, guitar, bass & drums
*4 or 5-Piece Cocktail Band: featuring male & female vocalists, acoustic guitar, piano & percussion
*5 or 6-Piece Wedding Band: featuring male & female vocalists, guitar, keyboard, saxophone, bass & drums

The Placeholders are home to some of the best musical talent in the NYC-metro area and we often work with other outstanding musicians. Please feel free to request to add saxophone, trumpet, additional female or male vocalists, string ensembles, horn sections, whatever you like!
