About the Band

Red Hook Orchestra is fast becoming one of New York City’s busiest and most popular event bands. Made up of some of NYC’s most sought after musicians the members of Red Hook Orchestra have toured, recorded, and performed with Norah Jones, Regina Spektor, Bill Withers, Dido, Scandal, and Air, amongst many others.

Formed in 2009 by the bandleaders of the Dexter Lake Club Band, Red Hook plays a mix of classic rock, 80’s, and early soul and R&B. RHO provides a high-energy performance by a group of young musicians who love what they do, in contrast to the legions of bands of tired 50-year-olds playing “Celebration”, “Y.M.C.A.”, and “I Will Survive.”

Red Hook Orchestra has performed over one-hundred private and public events appearing at some of the top venues and event spaces in New York, throughout the United States, and North America including the Bowery Ballroom, Knitting Factory, Rockwood, the Bowery Hotel, Steiner Studios, the New York and Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, Prospect Park, Tribeca Rooftop, Chelsea Museum, the Canadian Association of New York Foundation, and the Montreal Science Center.

Red Hook Orchestra featured on Carats & Cake

We played a really fun wedding last summer in Newport, RI.  Here is a feature of it on Carats & Cake.



  1. Highest praise to the Red Hook Orchestra for its extraordinary contribution to my son and his (now) wife’s Cornell wedding Saturday. The band was fantastic in every respect: the musicianship, the choice of playlist, emcee Peter Bagale’s tone, the musicians’ spirit and eagerness to please. Our guests danced and raved. From the minute I met Peter in the chapel to the very last dance, the musicians and their contribution to our wedding far exceeded my expectations. Thank you, thank you, thank you Red Hook Orchestra. You gents were a big reason our Cornell wedding weekend was a grand success.

  2. This is a great venue. I was here for a party and there was so much food and it was all done so well! The decor and food both were amazing. Personally, I think the space at best hotel bar nyc is laid out really well and the size of the venue keeps pulling great parties.

  3. We recently had our wedding at this place, and we couldn't have been happier. We had a particular vision for our wedding, and at Chicago wedding venues we were given just that. This is a unique space, with an incredible view. Highly recommended!
