James and I are so thrilled with everything you have done for us. If you are considering hiring a band for your special event, I highly recommend Cause and the Effects. Their performance was one of the biggest highlights of our wedding!

If you need high caliber music at whatever event you so choose to have, you need these guys. The attention to detail, work ethic, and overall passion for performing radiates in their work and having them play my wedding was a dream come true. Give them a call!!!

- James Castoro, Groom

The music and vocals were perfect and the energy was non-stop. You will never find a harder working or more professional band. If you are planning an affair consider hiring this band. You will not be disappointed. 

- Nicholas Castoro, Father of the Groom


I was amazed at the entertainment quality the band brought to the stage. Their repertoire of different music styles was astonishing. Each passing song was better than the last, and I was so impressed with them that I hired them to play at my retirement party at the end of that year. You may be hosting an event but Cause and The Effects brings the party!

From the time I was a kid, music has moved me. Till this day, I listen to, enjoy, consume and ‘use’ music. It inspires me. It makes me happy. It makes me rage. It plucks away at the strings of every emotion. So when I hear a really talented local band, I can’t help but become a fan, and that’s what has happened with me and Cause and The Effects. They have performed for us many times over the years as part of our Sunset Summer Concert Series and at other events my office has hosted, and they never disappoint in putting on a good show. They are definitely a fan favorite with our summer concert crowds, and we are proud to call them Staten Islanders. If you get the chance, go see these guys!

To this day, people still talk to us about our wedding band and how they rocked the night away for our big day. They were professional, willing to learn special requests, and went above and beyond what was expected. Since our wedding, we have also hired them for our block party and look forward to hiring them again for future events. Why anyone would hire another band doesn't make sense to me. They are simply "THE BEST"!!!

- Mark Darrow, Groom


I attended a 50th anniversary party for the school I work at and Cause and The Effects was the band playing. There were about 150 people in attendance at this party and at any given time throughout the night, the dance floor was full. There wasn’t a song request they couldn’t do and the sound of their music was terrific. I would recommend them for any event you may be having - why hire a DJ when you can have a magnificent live band?

Cause and The Effects made my wedding extra special! I was married over a year ago and people still talk about how amazing my wedding band was! They were so incredibly flexible, and drove nearly 4 1/2 hours to my venue just to help me celebrate my special day! I highly recommend them for any wedding or event! They were fun, energetic, and kept all my guests dancing, singing along, and entertained.

There are not enough words to express the incredible level of talent, enthusiasm and professionalism of this group. By far the best live band I have heard in years and the nicest group of people you can meet. They played The Greenbelt Conservancy's fundraising, the Blue Jean Ball, in 2017 and we are welcoming them back this year with open arms. Thank you, all, for sharing you incredible abilities and for keeping us dancing into the night!

Meghan W., Staten Island Greenbelt Conservancy


Having the Cause and the Effects as our band, on our wedding night, was the best decision that my husband and I made. They were absolutely incredible!! Vincent & Anthony were such a pleasure to work with - from their professionalism & enthusiasm, to their flexibility and willingness to do whatever you wanted, to make your wedding night perfect. I could not recommend this band enough. I wish I could have our wedding night on repeat.

- Erika P., Bride


Thank you for such great entertainment last night at my brother in law's birthday party! Not only are you extremely talented, the energy you all have and bring to a party was incredible! Everyone had a great time.

- Daniella R., Private Party


Cause and the Effects are one of the best bands in the city!  I hired them for my bridal shower and people are still talking about how special it was. Not only did they put on an amazing show, they worked with us to put live band Karaoke together and they learned a song that I’d written and played it for me! It was a perfectly customized performance and I would recommend them to anyone for their wedding or event.

- Nicole H., Bride


I’m so glad I hired them. Anyone can hire a DJ, but there is nothing like live music. Cause and The Effects has an incredible sense of professionalism and an an obsessive eye for detail. I am so delighted I chose them for my daughter's graduation.

- Debbie K., Graduation Party


Great band, very talented; excellent covers of all types of music. Used them for a high school reunion and everyone raved!
