“If you need someone to respond to your entertainment needs immediately then Bill Messinetti (at New York Orchestras Entertainment) is the person to call. Whether it’s a three piece jazz trio or a ten piece band with vocals he makes it happen. Professional and considerate, it’s always a pleasure working with him and his talented musicians.”

Debra J. Olchick – Director, Events and Conferences


“As an event planner, I’m always on the lookout for outstanding entertainment. Nine years ago I was lucky enough to find Bill Messinetti and New York Orchestras, and since then have used them on several occasions. Their music is outstanding and very versatile, they can go from Broadway to Motown, to the latest hits. They are extremely professional and are dedicated to keeping the dance floor full. Highly recommend– their talent will blow you away!”

Sheila Burks President of Our Day Event Coordination
Manchester, VT


We are lucky enough to only work at the area’s premier venues. As a result, the many bands we work with are all quite good. Of all the bands I have seen, Central Park Orchestra is twice as good as the next best band and for all the reasons that count (sound, look, versatility, professionalism, etc.), but most of all, they love what they do and it comes through in every note.

William F. Scully – President of Pangaea Catering

Yacht Club Wedding

Central Park Orchestra performed at a wedding at the Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, Ma. It was a beautiful setting with perfect weather for a wedding. The bride and her parents got to hear the band first hand at her brother’s wedding last year at the Indian Trail Club in Franklin Lakes, NJ. Here is what the bride’s mom had to say about the band in her review she posted on, after the wedding;

“The Central Park Orchestra is absolutely the best ! I first heard them play at my son ‘ s wedding in New Jersey and immediately knew that part of the weddings success was because of this band … I booked them for my daughters wedding in Massachusetts without hesitation. This group of musicians make a party, they are professional, very talented, and fun ! They rotate in and out for breaks (not that I noticed once that anyone was gone) so there is always music, great music, no down time, guests dancing all night. People are still talking about how unbelievably good they were!”

“Bill, the band leader, is easy to plan with, answers emails and calls promptly . I could not recommend them more highly. What a blast we had dancing all night!”

The best wedding band review!!

The Wedding Rockin’ Legendary House Band – Central Park Orchestra!

Central Park Orchestra was absolutely incredible. Look no further. They were simply amazing! From our first meeting, Bill (Band Leader) wants to know you, and play for you! Their professionalism, talent, and song variety list was over the top. They far exceeded all our expectations and made the wedding the best night ever! Central Park Orchestra has a wide range of musicians and a very talented horn section. Special thank you to the vocals of Maverick and Emilie, Peter on the keys, Lou rockin’ the guitar, and my man Clark Gayton on trombone! Jessie and I were over the moon on your performance. Our guests were dancing the entire night, and won’t stop talking about how great you guys were. During the reception, I looked at my wife and said, “This is what heaven must be like, surrounded by the love of your family and friends, smiling, dancing, and having the best night of our lives.” Thank you Bill, from the bottom of our hearts…you rock brother! Absolutely incredible! Thank you! – John & Jess 05/12/2017

New York NY wedding band review as found on

Andy said…
The band Central Park Orchestra was amazing! All of our guests raved about them after wedding. And to this day, we still receive compliments about them. They have an extensive list of songs that they can perform, spanning multiple eras and genres. Bill Messinetti, the leader of the band and our primary contact was extremely flexible and accommodating. We provided a play list of 100+ songs and lucky for us, the band already knew most of them. He was able to create a mix of songs for set based on our preferences and worked in our must play songs as well. We had everything from 70’s Motown, 80’s rock and pop, 90’s pop as well as more current top 40, hip hop and R&B. All the music flowed, similar to having a DJ during their sets. During the entire reception, a band member was always playing a song which was great. They also provided the ceremony music, playing our selected songs. Bill was helpful, providing suggestions and ideas for the ceremony music based on our tastes and playlist. And to our surprise, one of the band members played a song in Chinese (mandarin dialect) as well. This was really a nice touch. They worked well with our venue and other vendors. We didn’t have to worry about anything during the wedding. They also provided uplighting for the ballroom that really enhanced the ambiance and environment. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a band.

I honestly don’t think I could praise Bill and the rest of the band enough as there wasn’t anything I would change at all. From the moment we spoke to Bill, every single detail, from song choice and set construction to flow of when speeches would occur was planned out perfectly leaving us with nothing to do other than dance the entire night. The professionalism, willingness to learn new songs, and whole demeanor from Bill and his team was on another level of service. If you want a band who can throw down and will make your wedding night memorable, look no further.

This band is awesome! I was attracted by their voice when we attended a bridal show. My husband and I decided to choose them as our wedding band. Almost our guests are from China, honestly I was a little bit worried at the beginning. But it turns out that is really unnecessary. We worked with Bill. He is very nice and easy to work with. He provided us many good ideas and suggestions. And this band is very professional and considerable. They gave us a surprised Chinese song which we never imaged. Really appreciate they gave us that unforgettable night. Highly recommend.

St. Jude Fundraiser at Oheka Castle

New York Orchestras Entertainment had the pleasure of presenting the incredible Central Park Orchestra (band video link) at Oheka Castle this past Saturday evening. The 350 plus crowd were extremely generous and giving to the fundraiser.

The event was hosted by Oheka owner Gary Melius and the Melius family along with “Gold Coast Cares” for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. When you hear the stories told by the parents of the patients at St. Jude you realize this has to be a favorite charity to give to.

It was truly our honor to help out!
Please give if you are able.

Oheka Castle Wedding


Oheka Castle Wedding – Wedding Band with DJ combination has become very popular in the New York area. Central Park Orchestra shared the stage with renowned wedding DJ, DJ Gaige, for their last Oheka Castle wedding of 2016. After many Oheka events this was a wonderful way to top off the year. Central Park band has been working with DJ Gaige since 2002 when they appeared on ABC-TV performing at a televised St. Valentine’s Day wedding. The show was ‘LIVE with Regis & Kelly’ featuring Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa at Guastavino’s in NYC.

DJ Gaige said; “I love working this band! Whenever we work together there is a seamless transition from band to DJ, DJ to band. I segue from their last song of their set into a similar beat as I start my set. And, vice versa, the band does the same from my last song into their first.”

New York Orchestras works with many event planners, wedding planners, photographers and videographers. But, this event had quite a team, perhaps the A-team. These wedding vendors are the owner’s of each respective company and they only do one event at a time.
