Wedding Wire 2016 Couple’s Choice Award

The Dexter Lake Club Band has been named a winner of the 2016 Couple’s Choice Award at

Very pleased to be a winner of WeddingWire Couple’s Choice award for the fifth year in a row.  Dexter Lake Club Band has a five start review rating at Wedding Wire.  Click here to read our reviews.





The Dexter Lake Club Band has been profiled on the cover of the New York Times Sunday Styles, “This wasn’t some sterile imitation this was a real band.”  New York Magazine named us “One of the Top Ten Reasons to get married in New York City” , named us “New York City’s Top Event Band”, and NPR called us “Wedding Rock Royalty”.

The Knot

The food and entertainment were just as noteworthy, with the couple treating guests to inspired signature cocktails, decadent eats and livly performance by thee Dexter Lake Club Band. “We really had the best team of people,” says Allison, “from our designer David Beahm to our planner Lauren Fishman and the Dexter Lake Club Band.” A tip for the taking from Allison: “Take thirty seconds in the middle of your ceremony to look out at the crowd and see all of the people who came to support you. Absorbing that love was really amazing. The whole night goes so fast, so take the time to enjoy every minute. Don’t stress about the details!”


Your performance was inarguably the driving force behind much of the night’s debauchery. Were there any moments, maybe dance floor observations from the party that made you guys step back and question if things we’re still withing the confines of the law?

Aside from the woman who decided to come onstage during “Welcome to the Jungle” and ended the song in the split position? I think there is some video of that up on our Instagram by the way (@dexter lake club band). We also saw some very tender romantic moments in the crowd, so look there will likely be a couple of Yacht Club Time Machine babies in about nine months. She didn’t do a ton of dancing, but we also want to go officialy on record in saying how much we liked the lady in the skintight watermelon body suit.

Dexter Lake Club Band joins up with The National, The Walkmen, and Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs

New Recording with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The National, Walter Martin of the Walkmen

Our bass player, Jamie, plays on the new solo record from Walter Martin of the Walkmen, alongside the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, The National, and members of the Walkmen.  What an honor for our bass player and band leader Jamie to record and perform with these Indie Rock legends.  You can hear the first single featuring Jamie and Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs at this link!

Walter Martin’s new record is absolutely fantastic.  Its won critical acclaim and awards and we are honored to have members of the Dexter Lake Club Band be a part of it.
