The Cosmo Alleycats is a professional, VINTAGE band that performs at weddings and private events throughout the SF Bay Area and Northern California. We are a favorite pick at many wineries, hotels, and private clubs, and have earned our reputation and distinction among wedding coordinators, venue operators, and wedding planning websites. Here's why:​


  Wedding Celebrations

Our music is fun, nostalgic, and covers a wide range of styles: 

Speakeasy Jazz, Big Band Swing & New Orleans 
Classic R&B/Soul & Motown
80s & Contemporary Remix

Our sound is celebrational, and appeals to a large range of ages and cultural backgrounds and musical tastes.​

Our professionalism and behind-the scenes attention to detail will ensure a smooth, natural, and seemingly spontaneous flow to your celebration. Plus, we are easy to work with and adaptable to the unique requirements of your event.

"We had multiple staged set ups at our venue, for cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing, and they were able to accommodate it all. They also learned some new songs for us to dance to which was a bonus. At the end of the night, everyone was wishing they could have played longer - if only our wedding had been planned for that!"                           - Rebecca, Bride 2018

Cocktail, Dinner and Dance Receptions
Cocktail and Dinner Music

New Orleans and Classic Jazz Standards performed at low to medium volumes and provides a light and elegant backdrop to cocktail and dinner receptions. Our music wont won't interfere with conversation, but WILL provide the right spirited energy for the occasion.

Whether your reception is outdoor or indoor, The Cosmo Alleycats' vintage sound is a perfect fit!  Plus, we can easily adapt to any outdoor noise regulations

by providing an "acoustic/unplugged" approach that meets the requirements of most wedding venues. 

Dance Music

Throughout your celebration, our goal is to ensure that the music is the right style and at the right intensity to match the venue, your musical preferences, and your vision.

The Cosmo Alleycats help create a celebratory atmosphere by providing lively and recognizable dance music. We plan for a mix of thrilling and romantic songs for dancing, reading the crowd, and allowing for natural peaks and valleys scheduled into your reception. 

We love it when couples get creative with their first dance choice! We are more than happy to learn any song for a featured dance: First Dance, Father/Daughter, and Mother/Son. 

"This band is AMAZING! We had so many compliments from our guests about how fun the music was and we saw people on the dance floor that would normally stay seated. Their music just makes you want to dance!"     -Dan, Groom 2018
