JC Hopkins and his Biggish Band absolutely made our wedding at the Plaza Hotel perfect. No one could resist dancing to their original big band songs. Not only were they extremely professional, they were friendly and looked fantastic. Thank you JC for making our special night complete.
—Britten Heft and Gregory Wolfe

JC and his band were phenomenal at our wedding.  In fact, I hesitate to even use the term “wedding,” because the band was so much more than a “wedding band.”  They were relaxed, fun and high-quality, mixing classic jazz standards with their own compositions.  I felt like we were getting the best of New York, old and new.  And their style & feel were a part of the evening: it really wasn’t like they were playing for us, but playing with us and enjoying the evening as much as we were.

JC Hopkins Biggish Band delivers innovative music and a vibrant sound, with a striking stage presence.  Super-stardom is in the making, and now we have bragging rights that we found them early enough to book for our nuptials.  Our dance floor was *huge* but their swing was bigger.  If you have reason to, hire them!   If not, go see them.
—Jennifer Oxley & Matthew Sullivan

JC Hopkins Biggish Band was the absolute highlight of my wedding reception.  The joyous swinging vibe, the unbelievable musicianship and the magnetism of JC and the entire band not only got everybody dancing, but made everyone feel like they had been part of a unique event.  Months later, friends and family are still talking about it.

“JC’s creative and infectious music was a highlight of our wedding. Every generation from both families were dancing together into the night. We couldn’t have been happier!”
—Storn White & Juliet Jamsheed
