Best party band ever!
Wedding bands are cheesy...Strecker is not. I encountered them at a wedding and could not sit to eat as the music was so great I kept dancing. I obviously took their contact details. I hired them for my company holiday party (350 guests)held last Friday, and they were brilliant. Staff was on the floor dancing non-stop, singing to the lyrics and having a great time. Thanks to them, my party was an enormous success. Use them, they are amazing!
The first time we saw Strecker Band in the Hamptons we knew that we would hire them for live music if we ever had a party. We used Strecker band to celebrate my doctorate! Strecker was my only choice for live music, so much so that I would have scheduled the date around their availability! Strecker, Jenn and the band were very accommodating checking in before the performance for any special requests and throughout the evening. They were pros at reading the crowd! Strecker Band brought great energy to the celebration with a range of music from 70’s funk to today’s current hits! Strecker had everyone up and dancing from the teens to the grandparents! Thanks Strecker Band for a FUN evening!
From the moment Strecker took the stage, everyone was out of their chairs and on the floor! We have received so many compliments on our wedding. Everyone always asks, “who was that amazing band?” We can’t sing your praises enough! You all are true musicians and we never doubted for a moment that you would lead the evening on the right course! You guys did such a great job. I never once had to worry about the flow of the evening because they did such an excellent job with all the formalities and in dealing with the catering hall staff. We were left with only one task for the evening, and that was to enjoy our wedding!

Stephen Strecker and his band did an amazing job at my wedding!! I was worried at first about using a band because I am very picky and I wanted the songs to sound as much like the original artist as possible. The band’s ability to sing a huge range of songs, and sound awesome is really incredible. Strecker was able to bring a variety of music to our party and even included some very current songs which I could not believe! Everyone had a great time and I got a lot of comments on how great they sounded. In my opinion, the feel that they gave to my wedding was much better than that of a typical wedding band. We all danced and had a great time and not one song made me think “uh they sound horrible”…like I usually feel at weddings! He was also very professional and very personable. I plan on using his band for a private party we are having next year too. Highly recommend!!!!
Seriously, when it comes to bands Strecker is top of the line. If you are considering a modern, high energy band for your event look no further. The sound quality and song catalog was outstanding. Strecker creates an environment of high energy fun, yet never overshadows the wedding itself. You are not going to get stuck with any of the tired wedding songs either, you can get country, hip hop, pop, rock, classic-any of it. The members are all great to work with, and wonderful performers. The talent and energy are enough for me to tell you to book Strecker for your wedding or personal event!

My best friend used Strecker and we booked them together. Her wedding was totally perfect!! Honestly it is all about the music and what they can get a crowd to do…well there was not a person in their seat. Everyone asked for their contact info…ok not everyone but anyone who might need them. I cannot wait until my wedding I have no worries at all. It is going to be the best!!!!!! Thank you Strecker. So so so much. You guys rock. The band sounds amazing I can not type what I am feeling. So excited. Watch their demo if you haven’t. Go see them. You won’t be sorry. Top notch. Classy energetic professional.
Beginning to end. I could wax on about the entire evening! The tent was magical, the food divine, the champagne flowing, but in the end it was the music that no one will forget. It surrounded every second and was always perfect for the moment. The dance floor was jamming from the first dance song until the final note. Best of all, everyone danced with or without a partner. I don’t think my mother has ‘danced’ danced in 30 years, but was out there on the floor. She said, “You couldn’t help but NEED to move to that music!”
You guys DEFY definition and NEVER disappoint. If you ever need a recommendation, don’t hesitate to call on us.
Our amazing Wedding was at the Snapper Inn in Oakdale. I really want to review a couple of my vendors as a THANK YOU for giving us the greatest wedding EVER!!
The Snapper Inn was great. Lori Wentz was our coordinator at the Snapper and she was wonderful. Food was great, the view from the Pavillion was spectacular & the Bartenders poured heavy 🙂
My husband & I had the DJ & Band package The Strecker band offers with Absolute Entertainment. We couldn’t be more thrilled with both groups. The one thing we both wanted was a great party…light on the usual wedding formalities and heavy on the fun.
Absolute Entertainment provided beautiful uplighting that completely transformed the Pavillion from a simple room with with white ceilings to this glowing, pulsing dance hall! We also had this crazy photo booth called a Superbooth. It was a HUGE hit! Our Absolute DJ/MC was Josh. He also played guitar for cocktail hour…it was like having John Mayer right there at cocktail hour. He played all kinds of cool & chill music and was awesome. After cocktail hour, he was our DJ and MC’d the formalities. He filled in all the gaps and played a couple songs we really wanted that the band didn’t do. Josh worked really well getting the dance floor packed and then turning the party over to the Strecker Band.
Now onto the BEST PART!! The Strecker Band was INCREDIBLE!!! We both agreed the one thing we did not want was a stuffy band. Ladies…if you want a crazy good band with out all the stuffy…you MUST check these guys out. We really like a wide variety of music, and I never thought a “Wedding Band” could do it all! Well, we got it all! Pop-40, Old Skool 90s hip hop, Boardy Barn rock and even a couple country songs! Our guests were going nuts and the three singers (Jen, Greg & Steve) were all out on the dance floor jamming with us! My husband even rapped some Beastie Boys song with Steve…the place went crazy. The Band did a great job of working all of our requests into their show. I can not complement them enough for a wonderful job. My day was “perfect” and that is what wish for all of you after your Wedding Day!

Strecker came to use through a recommendation from a family friend. And we are so glad we worked with them!!
Our 130-guest wedding was a hit thanks to the energy and professionalism from Strecker. If you are looking for a band to pay attention to detail, hit every moment out of the park and make your wedding fun, then this is your band!
My husband and I were very conscious about selecting vendors who we trusted for our special day. After our first meeting with Strecker and seeing them perform live, we knew we would be in good hands.
We received RAVE reviews from multiple guests at our wedding about the energy and quality of Strecker. I would whole-heartedly recommend Strecker to everyone!!

My husband and I booked Strecker for our wedding this past April. YOU WERE AWESOME!!! We had a guitarist and a singer, Jen, for our ceremony and cocktail hr. Jen, when I stepped out into the hall and started walking towards my future husband and I heard you singing “At Last,” I felt like I was in a fairy tale. It was a dream of mine to walk down to that song and you nailed it. The classical music as our guests entered the room was beautiful. Simple and inviting.
Our reception was nothing short of a blast and it could not have happened without a great band. You played every song we requested and sounded fantastic. I SAW FRIENDS AND FAMILY WHO NEVER GET UP AND DANCE, OUT ON THAT FLOOR HAVING A GREAT TIME!! You played such a wonderful mix of songs that everyone from my 16 yr old dance students to my grandma were out dancing.
What my husband and I were especially impressed with was the music you played while we had dinner. I’ve been to other events and while eating they either play cheesy elevator Muzak or something fun that makes us want to rush our meal so we can dance. You guys played a mix of cool jazz and light swing. It set the tone for dinner and was also great to listen to.
After dinner you guys continued to rock the reception. I nearly “fell” out of the top of my dress I was dancing so hard. Lol. And your voices!!! Jen has the talent to sing the sweet songs with a light and airy vibrato and then belt out the rock n roll in true Janis Joplin form.
So many guests came up to me to ask who you were. They loved you. I even wrote a post on my Facebook page telling everyone who they need to hire for their next event.
I cannot finish this without also mentioning how EASY YOU WERE TO WORK WITH. Having never booked a band for anything my husband and I were a bit confused. You guys made it so easy. And one thing we tried to do above all else when booking vendors, WE WANTED PEOPLE THAT WOULD LISTEN TO US, WHO WE ARE AS A COUPLE AND YOU DID.
Thank you from both Dan and myself for helping to make the best day of our life absolutely wonderful.

Thanks for everything Strecker!! BEST installation dinner in years!!!!

WHAT A PARTY!!! We recently hired Strecker to perform at a private event with 100+ people. Needless to say the event was a big success largely due to the performance of the band. The 4+ hour performance was most memorable because of their wide range of music, quality of sound, and overall energy. I would highly recommend this band for any event as they will not disappoint. We will certainly be having them back next year and look forward to seeing them at Dockers Waterside.

Dear Strecker Band…
Thank you for making our wedding the most talked about dance party for months!! You guys KILLED IT (as we knew you would!)!! Honestly, we could not have asked for more from you – you did such an amazing job. The energy and passion you brought to the night made it something incredible. Our guests haven’t stopped asking for your numbers and card and talking about how much fun they had. We loved how you came out on the dance floor and engaged with everyone and read the crowd for music selections – the crowd ate it up and you kept the dance floor packed.
Aside from the pure entertainment aspects, we want to thank you for your professionalism and reliability as well. The fact that you learned our somewhat unique wedding song for us, and then had the flexibility to tweak it later for our dance steps only confirmed our feelings that we hired a top notch band. Your execution was perfect and we had a blast!! Your advice on timing, ordering of events, and announcements was extremely helpful in keeping the night running smoothly!
Thank you a million times over for a perfect night! Next time we need a fun, high energy, reliable band – we’ll know where to turn!
Caroline and Michael
You guys rocked! Thanks for making it so much fun and so memorable!
Everyone loved you guys! –
Steve and Strecker Band,

I saw you guys at Dockers Friday night & was blown away!! Damn – YOU GUYS (and Gal) are GOOD !!…& FUN!! I’ve been around many bands, hosted hundreds of parties & events and I can truly say – YOU GUYS ADD FUN – along w/GREAT SOUND !! I’ll be sure to catch You at Dockers again.
It’s really not often a band can control and set an amazing atmosphere for an event. I have been in the hospitality business for over a decade and I can truly attest to this, but Strecker does this with ease. From their captivating stage presence and personality, to the extensive set list capability they are the whole package! I was fortunate to be able to book them for my own wedding! I’m still hearing the compliments about
Strecker! Have an upcoming corporate or private event? Contact these guys, I guarantee you will be glad you did!
Thank you so very much for the amazing entertainment at Tony’s 40th Birthday Party! You guys were great! It’s Monday morning and people are STILL RAVING about how amazing you all are! Thank you again for being so accomodating….I can’t wait until I have another party, just so I can have you all back again!!!! xoxox

TRECKER (Infinity) was our band for our wedding reception and they were AMAZING!!! I was a little worried when my husband and I first booked them because I could not find any reviews about this specific band online and I could not believe that such a great band was available for such a great price but they blew me away!! The dance floor was packed all night long and so many of our guests are still raving to us about them. Infinity was very easy to work with; they learned new songs for us, played songs that we requested from their song list (and left out ones we asked them not to play) and they were always quick to respond to my emails. Infinity is an amazing band for an amazing price!!!

We used STRECKER (Infinity). OBSESSED!!!! They had our dance floor going the entire time. They are priced amazing and honestly, everyone keeps asking for their number for their wedding. There is no need to spend 10k on other local bands, as they are better than most bands out there.
