THE METROPOLITAN PLAYERS
The Metropolitan Players is a youthful, energetic wedding band based in New York City that ONLY PLAYS WEDDINGS!!
We deliver the sound and song selection of a DJ, with the electric energy of a live band!
It's our mission to revolutionize the wedding entertainment industry by standardizing love as an expectation for booking and working with a wedding band in the Tri-State area (because we love love). While earning their Masters degrees in Music and Business respectively, founders Drew and Erin Coles created the band for their own wedding, and care deeply about creating a beautiful wedding for each and every client. Over the past several years, we've grown to become one of the most well trained and well respected collectives in New York City and the surrounding areas.
In 2018, we earned a coveted place in The Knot Hall of Fame after being voted "Best of Weddings" four years in a row - and we just won again in 2019 (woot woot) thanks to our incredible couples!! It's our privilege to provide tailored, compassionate customer service, keep the dance floor packed all night long, and make each couples special day truly unforgettable!

"The Met Players were the backbone of our wedding, and blew us and our guests away! Their talent, energy, enthusiasm, organization, and flexibility make it the greatest wedding band of all time. Would recommend them again and again."
Jim and Michael
"We cannot thank the Met Players enough for making us the perfect wedding. Literally every guest we've spoken to has made a point of calling out the band for an incredible performance (and the really discerning music choices and performances during the ceremony and cocktails). Seriously, we could not have asked for more - except maybe more time to celebrate!"
Emily and Bob
