Award-Winning Bands, Strings, DJs and other Live Entertainment For Your
Philadelphia Wedding

About us

CTO is an experienced, full-service event entertainment company that has for nearly thirty years produced the best Philadelphia wedding bands. From our humble beginnings in 1987 as a singularly talented Philadelphia wedding band all the way to the artistic and professional company we have become, CTO artists have planned and flawlessly executed over 10,000 events all over the globe.

Our Focus

Our focus is to provide you with phenomenal music. Our music consultants and bandleaders will coordinate every detail of your event with you, so that when the big day arrives, all you have to do is dance! To make that possible, we bring you artistically significant bands, DJs, strings, and music entertainers. Our artists are not fill-ins, pickup players, or part-timers; they are the best in the industry, chosen from thousands to represent CTO on your day. Best of all, we put our money where our mouth is – offering free showcases, so you can experience our bands live and in person.

Highly Regarded

CTO is proud to be recommended by top hotels, resorts and venues in Philadelphia, Florida, and destinations as distant as Jamaica and Buenos Aires. No matter where we go, CTO is ready to provide the premier entertainment your party deserves.

CTO Bands

We go to extremes so that when your event arrives, you've only got one job: to have the night of your life!

A CTO Band is a well-oiled machine whose only goal is to make your Philadelphia wedding perfect. To accomplish that goal, we hire and train the very best musicians on every detail - from choreography to cutting-edge song selections. Then we deliver the most high-energy performances you've ever seen, and that magic ingredient is what makes a CTO party so unforgettable.

Whether you want them to blend in or stand out, they will ensure that your event is one to remember.

CTO DJs starting at $1,800.00

For an unstoppable party force, you need look no further than these experienced kings of the turntable and microphone.

CTO disc jockeys are not casual part timers. They will bring a fierce, unapologetic talent and expertise to every event. They are club trained, seasoned veterans of their craft. Like our bandleaders, it is their job to know every detail of your event, to discuss their role with you, and to interface with all of the vendors and professionals who are there to make your day amazing.
