The Niche is a very special and unique combination of live musicians, singers and contemporary DJ-style music production, who love what they do. Customized drum, bass and rhythm backing tracks, which sound like the original recordings, are fused with a small group of the industry’s best live singers, keyboards, sax and percussion. The result: a more dynamic and upscale presentation than a DJ alone – and a sound that is LIVE but sounds much closer to the original versions of your favorite songs by your favorite artists. It’s the best of both DJ and band combined in one package – at a very unique price point.
The Niche comes with a DJ/MC that covers specialty music and the newest club style dance music. You’ll have the class and elegance of great live performers and the true-to-the-original sound normally only possible with a DJ. We’ll keep your dance floor packed with a range of musical styles- including a very contemporary play list and all the traditional dance floor favorites.

The Niche is available for your celebration with four talented Live performers and DJ/MC, and we can add additional performers. Our standard configuration of four performers includes two Lead Singers (Male and Female) that provide your party with great vocal harmony.
- Female Lead Singer
- Male Lead Singer
- Keyboards (and Backing Tracks including Drums and other parts)
You have the option to add an additional Singer, a Guitarist/Singer, or other performers. We provide music during your Ceremony and/or Cocktail Hour. If you would like something else, we can assist you with other ensembles including options such as Strings, Harp, Classical Guitar, and other choices. If you and your family require ethnic music, our DJ/MC capable of a wide range of international music.
Continuous Music is included in your package. You will have great music all night, with either the DJ or one or two musicians performing live while you’re enjoying your courses. Usually we will have your friends and family back up before the staff can clear the plates!
The Niche includes a state of the art PA System so you know that the volume, balance, and tone of the sound will always deliver a first class experience.
You have the best of both worlds with a Band/DJ Combo. The CNR Band performs music of all eras, including songs on the radio right now, and we come with a talented DJ. You can divide up music eras, songs, and amount of performance anyway you like between Band and DJ!
The Singers have wireless microphones – it’s your choice whether performers get out on the dance floor with your guests, or keep their boundless energy up on the bandstand. Either way, you will have fun with your guests all night!
Both our office staff and your bandleader will review all the details with you every step of the way! We will work with you to personalize the mix of music, special songs, and details of your celebration. We’re happy to learn your special songs, such as First Dance, Parent’s Dances, Cake Cutting Song, etc). We include a planning session approximately 2 months before the wedding, as well as touching base all the way up to the week of the wedding. To make this easy for you, we’re here for you every single day.
Yes – we do all the announcements you want included at your reception, coordinate with your Banquet Manager, and take care of everything else… so the day of the wedding you can simply show up and have a great time! And we promise … no corny game show hosts.
The CNR Band offers a showcase or a public gig every four to six weeks so you can enjoy the positive energy, talent, and “vibe” of the band members, and even ask for requests.
