About
We play weddings and events mostly within New York City's 5-boroughs and surrounding areas, such as the Hudson Valley, Long Island, parts of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, but we are happy to add travel/lodging charges, and go beyond. Music has occasionally taken us to Washington D.C., Vermont, Philadelphia, but also as far as Sonoma, CA and Palm Beach, FL.

There are many options as to the song list, the size of the band, the number and length of sets, as well as the sound system and house music.
While the quartet is well-suited for any event, having a larger group gives us a bigger sound. Having a horn section will help a Motown or Big-Band sound come across, whereas having a guitar player can lend a pop/rock or indie sound. That being said, the quartet is fully prepared to rock a dance party on their own!

With our jazz and classical backgrounds, a dynamic range of Wedding Ceremonies are possible, from standard classical repertoire to instrumental arrangements of pop tunes, and anything folk, indie, or in between. We can create original arrangements and contract additional musicians to play strings or woodwinds.

The Joelle Lurie Band has the experience to pull off big events (Rainbow Room, Top of the Rock, Birdland, Lincoln Center, NY Stock Exchange, and more). With the talent and love that go into our performances, we make every event a memorable one. We surpass bigger event bands in musicianship and in the ability personalize your experience --and at a fraction of the cost.

If you are interested in booking the Joelle Lurie Band, we require a contract and a non-refundable deposit (you may add extras after booking).
We will also help guide you through the planning process and help ensure that you get the most out of working with us. We will always be able to get in touch with you and will make sure that our musical contribution is the perfect accompaniment to your wedding! Please let us know if you have any questions!

Stop what you're doing and hire Joelle & The Pinehurst Trio now. You won't regret it. I was running into trouble trying to find a band that met our standards. As a professional musician, I found most "wedding" bands to be lacking-falling short with weak arrangements, out of tune singers, and/or outdated styles. I heard about Joelle from a mutual musician friend. I heard them play in NYC and knew I had to hire them. We had a black tie wedding and had a jazz trio play during cocktail hour and then the full band for dancing. We hired an extra singer (Blake-get him if you can), 2 horns, and a guitarist. Everyone was dancing all night. I can't recommend them enough!

I looked high and low to find the perfect band for our wedding this past September in Bristol, Rhode Island. I consider myself so lucky to have found Joelle, Blake, and the rest of the band. These guys (and gal) are so incredibly talented. I cannot tell you how happy I was with my choice and how impressed all of our guests were! Their range and breadth of music selection allows them to play such a gambit of songs, no one will be left out. We requested they play a list of instrumentals for our ceremony, a bluesy/jazz cocktail hour, and an eclectic set of contemporary and classic songs for our reception. We were blown away. I cannot thank them enough. Highly recommend!

We couldn't have had a better experience with Joelle & The Pinehurst Trio when they performed for our wedding in November. They were so easy to work with and understood us and the crowd. Their talent is unmatched and went from motown to country to R&B seamlessly. We have no reservations in recommending them for any event.

Perfect band for the style of music we were trying to achieve at our wedding. They were easy to work with, played and learned all of the songs we requested, as well as on time and professional. When we requested them to pick up the vibe, they got the crowd up and dancing. Everyone had a great time! We would recommend them.

This group was amazing. They literally made the wedding (aside from my bride!). Ben coordinated every detail with us months out and ensured the night went smoothly. You will not be disappointed with them.

Exceeded all expectations. Made me and my company look good - all of our guests had a fabulous time at our summer party due in part to the perfect soundtrack provided by Joelle & the Pinehurst Trio. An absolute pleasure to work with, they graciously accommodated the type of tone we wanted to set for our event - the song list perfectly matched the vibe of the party as it got into full swing. Was asked by countless guests and coworkers "how did you FIND them?" Many guests were witnessed singing along as they lounged poolside. Cannot imagine a better outcome. We had considered booking a DJ for this event, but I insisted on Joelle & the Pinehurst Trio - so glad I did!

Living abroad and planning a US wedding proved was time consuming at best but booking Joelle & The Trio was easy and efficient. Ben was very communicative and we did everything via email. If only every vendor had been so easy.... We requested 30-50's swing / jazz and Joelle & the Trio had our party feeling transported. Absolutely fantastic. We would hire them again in a heartbeat. Thanks for the memories!!! Kerstin & Sander

Joelle, Ben, Nick and Conor are truly talented and added the perfect ambiance to our wedding reception. Their repertoire is varied and extensive and they did a great job feeling the vibe of the audience and playing a suitable song selection. We had so many people compliment us on the band and ask for their cards - even our venue's coordinator asked for their card for upcoming events. Everyone loved them. We couldn't have been happier.
