The Engagements is an “alt-wedding band” based in Brooklyn, NY that plays a lot of 80’s covers, along with rare soul and Motown.
Originally created to play at a picky (musician) friend’s wedding, the band has since entertained for weddings and parties of every size and ilk. Along the way, the group has built a reputation as a unique alternative to the typical wedding band.
The Engagements covers songs that haven’t been played to death at weddings, and always has fun doing it.
“The eleven instrument swappers who crowd The Engagements’ stage can do straight-up hits, but they’d rather be rocking ‘This Charming Man.’” – New York Magazine
“The premier ’80’s-covering wedding band.” – Paper Mag
