GCS kept our party going all night long!!! At one point they even had to tell our guests to sit down and eat dinner and mentioned it was the first time they ever had to kick people off the dance floor! We had guests from all age groups and there was music for every taste to enjoy. Paul is extremely professional, easy to get in touch with, and super helpful throughout the planning process. If you are looking for your wedding to be a rocking party, you will not regret booking GCS.

Wow!! Where do I begin! The first time I heard Grand Central Station play last year at Tulip Fest I just knew I wanted them to play at my wedding. My mom and I both looked at each other and said " Yes this is the band!!!". My husband and I knew this band would not let us down. I loved them so much that I started seeing them all the time even though Kevin though I was crazy, but they rock! I am still hearing so many great things from all my guests. Our first dance was All of Me by John Legend and one guest actually said to me " ummm is the real John Legend here!!" . Paul is great to work with as well as the rest of the band! I can not thank you guys enough for such a great job you did at my wedding and I can't wait to see you play over the summer!!!

Grand Central Station is the best and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a band for any special event!!!!!!!

Thank you guys so much for a great night

Hi Paul,
As my husband and I approach our one year anniversary, we are reflecting on our wedding and the wonderful celebration that it was. All of our guests raved about two things; the Fingerlakes, NY destination and the AMAZING band. Our guests were all from Philadelphia and Pittsburgh and we heard time and time again that they have never been to a wedding with such an awesome band and "they MADE the wedding"! I appreciate you being so accommodating with the audio set up for the ceremony and for being flexible enough to throw in a last minute performance of Devil went down to Georgia with my fiddle playing brother. You are all such talented musicians/vocalists! I feel so lucky that I found your band online and had the faith to  book you based on the youtube video alone. The videos were great but didn't even do your live performance justice. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.....Hiring you was by far the best wedding planning decision we made  :) 

Thank you,
Brittany and Lee

When we first started looking for a band to play at our wedding, we didn’t think we could afford it – but then we met and fell in love with Grand Central Station!! Not only do they have an amazing sound – but they are totally affordable! A friend of ours had seen them perform at another wedding and suggested we check them out. We were blown away by their talent, sound, stage presence, and variety of music they covered. It was quick to see that we needed them at our wedding. Paul worked with us to create the perfect soundtrack for our wedding day. From the jazz trio at cocktail hour, special requests for first dances, and tunes that kept our guests on the dance floor all night – THEY ROCKED OUR SOCKS OFF! Our guests are still talking about what a fun time they had dancing at our wedding. Thank you GCS!

THIS LET'S US KNOW WE DID OUR JOB


Dear Paul and the rest of the band,
Just saying thank you does not seem like enough for the amazing job you all did this weekend at our wedding. Our main goal for the reception was for it to be a party and for everyone to have a blast and that was accomplished beyond our expectations. Grand Central Station was the perfect band for us and our wedding. From the first song you had people on the dance floor and they didn't get off until the last song. Your ability to read the crowd and play to it was exactly what we wanted. We have been to so many weddings where the entertainment had decided on all of the music ahead of time and did not deviate despite the crowd clearly not enjoying it. GCS was the exact opposite. You played to your audience and that made all the difference. You had people on the dance floor that we were sure would be in their seat all night. Having the live band made the experience so much more personal and got the crowd engaged. Thank you for letting our friend Dan sing Journey with you, he was thrilled and is still talking about it. Everyone raved about how awesome you were and we we're told many many times that it was the best wedding people had been too. That is thanks to GCS. The entire band was amazing all night and we couldn't have asked for anything else.
Thank you for making our wedding everything we dreamed of,
Amanda and Jason Bean

I had the privilege of working with Grand Central Station at one of the weddings I photographed. They were very professional, friendly and easy to work with. They kept the party going and people dancing the whole night. Their music was awesome!!! I would highly recommend Them for your wedding or event. -Scott Rougia (CAJ Photography)

Grand Central Station Band are easily one of my favorite wedding bands in upstate New York. Tremendous fun. Paul DeBiase and the guys (and Mia of course!) never fail to deliver. And, unlike some bands, they're all incredibly friendly, not an ounce of arrogance or attitude. They really love their job. I would hire them in a heartbeat for any event, especially a wedding if you want to have a non-stop party. Plus they are incredibly affordable as bands go!!

Another Thank You from awesome Bride & Groom

Paul,

We just wanted to thank you and the rest of the band from the bottom of our hearts for the fantastic job you guys did at our wedding on Saturday!  We can't even begin to tell you how many people have contacted us to tell us how great you were - we even had a few couples ask if you would travel for their own weddings.  You had the dance floor packed all night and you all did such a beautiful job with the first dance and parent dance songs.  The last song (Livin on a Prayer) was the PERFECT way for us to end the night.  You guys bring an energy to the dance floor that just can't be explained!!  We would like to thank Jenry for trying to teach Mike the Carlton Dance.  While he never quite got it right, it made for some awesomely hilarious attempts on the dance floor.  We'll continue to practice that one....   ;)

We especially want to express our gratitude for being so flexible and calm when the generator stopped working for the last half hour.  Thank you so so much for going out of your way to play for an extra half hour after that - it really made our night.  We were so sad thinking we were going to lose out on 30 more minutes of getting to party with you guys and it was such an awesome surprise when you announced you all were going to stay and play longer for us.  You guys were so professional, fun, and nothing short of fantastic!  We can't wait to see you guys play next summer season when we're back up in the area.  Until then...thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  

Jenn & Mike

I can't thank you guys enough for the amazing music Saturday evening. Believe it or not...there were people at the party that never heard you play. From the words of a co-worker "the two singers have amazing voices". I have to agree. Thanks again for an wonderful evening of fun! See you in Hilton Head...lol

Paul & all of GCS...  this note is way too long in getting sent out.
 
Having performed for many years in a band, I was right out of the gate impressed with you guys.  Great stage presence... great music and wonderful personalities.
 
I want to thank you for making my daughter Natalie's wedding everything we hoped for. 
 
You were great to let me sing to my 85 year old grandmother... my son Timmy and his friend will never forget your backing them up and getting the crowd into a frenzy over the first dance, Dave Matthew's Up and Away... My daughter Becky had blast singing Browned Eyed Girl! 
 
I have been to many many weddings and gatherings...  I have never seen a band get people up on the dance floor and keep them there all night! 
 
Thanks again... you are a class bunch and I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for entertainment! 
 
We'll see you out at the clubs for sure...  only then you won't have to back up Steve Staples singing to his grandma!!!
 
..... What Matters To You, Matters To Me!

Paul,

Hi there!  I wanted to take minute to let you know what an absolute
pleasure it was working with you and your musicians this past weekend for
the Staples/Guay Wedding. 

You were so easy to work with, so great with the client and all the extra
songs from them!  Honestly, I have had 6 weddings already this season and
not one had the dance floor as packed all night as this one.  You guys were
awesome, played the perfect mix of songs, Mia and Jenry were so amazing and
I am REALLY excited to have the chance to refer you to future clients.

Please feel free to share my information with clients as well as I love to
help make your job easier as well and keep the timing on track!

Paul, again please accept my sincere thanks and huge congrats on an
amazing job for a very special client!!

All the best & sparkle,

Katie O'

This letter was sent from the parents of the Bride.

Dear Paul,

Michael and I wanted to write and thank you and the other members of Grand Central Station for the fabulous music at Kate and Nick's wedding reception. Kate felt from the very beginning that her vision for this reception was that it should be "THE BEST PARTY ANYONE HAD EVER ATTENDED". Well, you certainly delivered on that!

The jazz trio that played at the cocktail hour set the tone for the whole reception. People knew when they heard sophisticated jazz on the terrace that they were in for a great evening. Paul, you handled all of the announcements in such a elegant and low-key way, exactly the way we wanted it to be done, just perfect. Most importantly though, the dance floor was jammed all evening long. The Glen Sanders staff was clearing away half-eaten food ( and fabulous food at that !) all evening long because people couldn't stop dancing to your terrific music. My eighty one-year old mother danced all night, we baby boomers danced our feet off, and Kate and Nick's young friends never sat down either.

It was an evening we will remember forever. Thank you for your part in it.

Sincerely,
Cynthia Ingallinera

You guys did it this time. My phone has not stopped ringing since Monday morning.

People I don’t even know who work  here have been calling me asking for the name of the band that played the gala this year. With all the planning that went into this year’s event, my first order of business was to “make sure you hire the band again for next year immediately”.  Thanks for doing such a great job,  your female vocalist is with out a doubt the best in the area, hands down. (you guys aren’t bad either hahaha) just kidding. See ya in November.

____________________________________________________________________

I just wanted to shoot you and the band a quick note.You played for my brothers wedding this past Saturday and I can’t tell you how impressed I was with GCS Band.

I’ve been to scores of weddings and I can honestly say you were one of the best bands I have every seen/heard. I’m down here in Washington , but I would highly recommend you to anyone upstate looking for a band.

Take care,
