You would be nuts not to work with them
5 STAR REVEIW from Yelp:
There are very few times I can say I’m blown away!!! Omg !!! Cagen music did the most amazing job coordinating all the music for my wedding. No one stopped dancing. “iNCOGNiTO” played during the reception, the CoverGirls did a live performance that had guests at the edge of their seats. Goodvibes hit a home run during cocktail hour with the vibraphone!!! Wow is all I can say!!! You would be nuts not to work with them. Words can’t describe how amazing and professional Cagen is. Thank you for making my wedding better then I could have ever imagined!!! Xoxo

the best wedding band I’ve ever heard
5 STAR REVIEW from Google:
Incognito played at my wedding recently, and without a doubt, it was the best wedding band I’ve ever heard, and I’m so glad that the wedding they were at was mine. People sang along and danced all night long. They guided the timeline of events along expertly, and throughout the planning process Becky Cagen was a joy to work with. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Once again, Incognito made the night!!!
All I can say is — wow! Once again, Incognito made the night!!! They were phenomenal and everyone had a fantastic time. One of Anna’s friends posted on Facebook “awesome wedding with a kick-ass live band!” Thank you and please give everyone in the band a big thanks from us.
That’s all our daughters — maybe when our granddaughter Julia (who’s 4) gets married we can dance again to Incognito. Thanks again!

The band was outstanding!!!
The band was outstanding for Shayne and Jake’s wedding!! The dance floor was always packed – I did not miss one dance. (I have the blisters to prove it!) Ron kept things hopping. I had many people compliment on their performance. Many thanks to you and each of them.

The dance floor was jam packed
5 STAR REVIEW from weddingwire.com:
Yesterday we used “iNCOGNiTO” for our wedding in St. Charles. Going into it there’s always that fear that the band won’t sound as anticipated, but holy cow did they hit it out of the park! The dance floor was jam packed from the very first song until the last song had finished. Every age group was on the floor having the time of their lives and we had countless guests ask us where we found the band telling us they’ve never seen a dance floor stay so packed. They were so good that after the last song our guests were chanting “one more song!” for an encore.
Nothing but positive things to say about Incognito and very highly recommended.

we received endless compliments on “iNCOGNiTO”
Thank you so much for being a part of our special day. We have received endless compliments on “iNCOGNiTO”. The band created such an upbeat and fun environment. Becky, thank you for orchestrating everything and for being an overall joy to work with. We will be recommending Cagen Music for sure!

We had a blast and danced the whole night!
Incognito is the perfect wedding band! From the moment we first contacted you, we knew they were going to be a very special part of our day. Becky, we enjoyed working with you to plan for the event, and then on the day of the wedding the musicians were incredibly professional and talented and a joy to have at the wedding. The band responded to the audience mix between genres and tempos that made for a wonderful part and got everyone dancing – from my 85 year old grandfather to my 18 year old cousin. I would highly, highly, highly recommend Incognito.
Thank you Incognito for the amazing music at our wedding. We had a blast and danced the whole night! Everyone has been raving about the band!!!

5 STAR REVIEW from weddingwire.com
We used Incognito Band from Cagen Music and are incredibly happy with the job they did! The dance floor was full the entire night, they alternated smoothly between music of different generations/genres and, most importantly, we had tons of fun! They also did our ceremony music and dinner music, which also were wonderful. Highly recommend!
Incognito made the entire wedding amazing! Please let all of the performers know how much we appreciated their artistry. Our guests were blown away!

Compliments to you and the “iNCOGNiTO” band. They did a wonderful job last night. The best was their extended version of our song we danced to as a close to the evening. The gratuity is in the mail. Becky, it was a pleasure working with you!
We really appreciated all the guidance along the way and will certainly be recommending your business to all our friends. The wedding was so much fun. Amazing night for both of us! Thanks again!

Our wedding night was a blast thanks to “iNCOGNiTO”. Erik and I danced almost the whole time! We would like to tip the band members and will be mailing a check.

the music was 100% our favorites
The whole band could not have been more fabulous! The music was fantastic. I would be delighted to be a reference for the Incognito band. In addition to the music being good, Ron was super cool at going with our flow, our requests, etc. We were careful to go by your instructions and not give him a line-by-line edit of your song list, but it felt like the music was 100% our favorites. Thank you!

They kept the dance floor packed all night long
Wedding Review from yelp.com:
We recently had the pleasure of having Incognito (one of the bands that is a part of Cagen Music) play at our wedding. They kept the dance floor packed all night long and we received numerous compliments from our guests on the band: their style, range of genres and overall energy level. The bandleader reads the audience well and decided on the next song while the current song is being played in order to keep the people on the dance floor. The complete ten piece band really allows for a full fantastic sound. Becky Cagen (main contact) was a delight to work with. She was responsive and efficient in answering our questions. She made suggestions where appropriate and explained why she thought certain ideas made sense based on her knowledge of the band and the type of wedding we wanted. Reflecting back on the evening, her suggestion of continuous play was absolutely appropriate and perfect. If the band had stopped, our party would have stopped as well. I highly recommend Cagen Music and Incognito.

I highly recommend Incognito for anyone who wants a fantastic band!
I just wanted to share my second online review ever! Incognito was such a wonderful addition to our wedding that I needed to write a review. I was absolutely blown away by how great the band sounded and received so many glowing compliments on the band. Thank You!
5 Star Rating from weddingwire.com:
Incognito played at my wedding this past weekend and was phenomenal! I was a bit hesitant, as I booked them without hearing them live or finding many reviews on them…but they were a hit! We needed band that would not only sound great, but would also entertain both our younger and older guests by integrating the age groups’ music tastes without “sectioning” the music so only the older or younger guests would be dancing at any given time. As you know from attending weddings, that is no easy feat. But, Incognito achieved exactly that. The band even managed to get the older, really traditional folks to dance to Lady Gaga!!! Throughout the evening and after the wedding, many of our guests effusively commented on the band. They even learned 2 new songs for our wedding on short notice and BOTH sounded amazing! Leading up to the wedding, I interfaced primarily with Becky Cagen, who, like the band, is just fantastic! She provided the perfect balance of guidance and suggestions to provide us with reassurance and a seamless flow. I highly recommend Incognito for anyone who wants a fantastic band!

We received countless compliments on our band
For us, the most important part of our wedding was the dance party. We received countless compliments on our band. I heard a number of people picked up their information so they could also have them play at their own/their children’s weddings. They were able to keep the dance floor packed all night and knew what to play to keep everyone dancing. Everyone, from ages 3-93, was having a great time. Becky was wonderful to work with, she was very responsive and worked with us to get what we wanted within our budget. The thing we will remember most about our day is how much fun we were able to have with all of our family and friends around us, thanks Incognito!

The music was absolutely perfect! I just wanted to say thank you for all your help and for providing such wonderful entertainment for our wedding. “Incognito” was truly amazing! We received many compliments from the guests regarding the music quality and variety. I especially enjoyed the rendition of “This Year’s Love” – it was beautifully done. If you need a reference from us for your future clients please do not hesitate to ask. I am delighted that we chose to go with “”Incognito”! Thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect!

The dance floor was packed
Just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for the great job “Incognito” did on Saturday night at Big Foot. The band was so easy to work with and the whole night, despite the near wash-out from the rain, turned out wonderfully. The dance floor was packed and people were enjoying the music from start to finish. I really hope I can bring you another client soon! Thanks again for everything!

the dance floor rocking all night long
I just wanted to say “Thank you” for all your help putting a fantastic night together for our daughter’s wedding. iNCOGNiTO had the dance floor rocking all night long. We heard many positive comments about the band from our guests and several asked for business cards for future reference. Your recommendation to play continuously help insure that the tempo of the evening continued right up to the last song when everyone was heard chanting “One more song, One more song” from the dance floor. iNCOGNiTO was a big part of a very special evening for our guests, one that our family will remember for a very long time. Thank you again!

I’m so glad I went with continuous music
Thank you so much for the wedding music! Everything was fabulous and everyone raved about “Incognito”. I’m so glad I went with continuous music (as per your suggestion), because it made the night go smoothly and everybody was dancing. It was just a wonderful night! Thank you so much for your help with everything – it was all fabulous!

The dancing never stopped!
I just wanted to write you a quick note to tell you what an outstanding job Incognito did at our wedding on June 26! Everyone loved the band…we had so many people dancing and we are still receiving compliments on what a fun and professional band we had. I can’t thank you enough for all of your help in making our wedding such a great and memorable day. Thank you for everything!
Now that things have almost returned to normal, we would just like to thank you and your group for a wonderful experience. The organization, planning and execution were great. Everything went off without a hitch, both Church and Reception. The musicians just fit in and made everyone feel good. I wish all events could go as smoothly. And of course the music was fantastic, both at the Church and Ivanhoe. I do not ever remember getting so many compliments and “where did you find these guys?” Lindsie at the club also said she was going to keep them on her list. Very nice to work with, very organized.
And I must admit, your idea of continuous music was right on. I am sure it added quite a bit to the evening. The dancing never stopped! If anybody ever questions you on having it, have them give us a call. Thanks again for a great evening.

excellent music and entertainment
Ray and I wanted to sincerely thank you and the iNCOGNiTO band for the excellent music and entertainment they provided for our reception last night. The dance floor was full the entire evening, and we can’t even count the numerous compliments we received on how greatly they enhanced the atmosphere of the event. We have already passed recommendations on to others looking for energetic and talented wedding bands and will continue to do so!
Please pass our gratitude onto the entire group. We really appreciate it and can’t thank you enough.

Incognito was AMAZING!
I have to tell you that the wedding was wonderful and Incognito was AMAZING! Everything was completely spot-on and we have heard nothing but raves from everybody. Also, importantly, Casey and I, and our parents danced the night away… And the special songs were lovely… and when Dancing in the Moonlight came on, I remember that I kept closing my eyes and trying to soak it all in, and I did! Becky, thank you for everything! You and Don truly helped make it magical for us, and I am forever in debt to you for the significant part you played in this very important day. All my best,

how wonderful your company and musicians are
I would like to thank you and Don for having such professional people working with and for you. The band was so good that the dance floor was continually full, and it was hard to find a place to dance (including three 88-92 yr olds).
The pop up went very well – the surprise was complete for all attendees. It worked perfectly and the song was the right one. The guy that did it was fantastic!
We had an impromptu singer (friend of ours) and your band accompanied him with no problem – it was a big hit.
Compliments still are forthcoming about how good the band was – they certainly personalized the experience for many.
Lastly thanks so much for such a great band and helping us plan this. I cannot express how wonderful your company and musicians are.
Also I would like to provide a tip for the band. How is that typically done and how much? Thanks again!

Incognito kicked some serious butt
Thank you so much for everything! Incognito was fantastic and everyone at our wedding raved about them. Ron was terrific, the sound was fantastic and everything turned out to be just perfect!!! Thank you.
5 Star Rating from weddingwire.com:
Cagen Music is one in a million. Becky and Don are some of the sweetest people I’ve ever dealt with in business. They’re no pressure, want to please and really know their stuff. While they do have their own thing going on, they ‘manage’ other bands and really have a great thing going. As we had some stipulations as to how large our band could be at the Shedd, they worked with and dealt with all of the minor stipulations and never bothered me once with problems that they may have run across.
Incognito, the band that played at our wedding, kicked some serious butt. While we did pay extra to keep the music going, they just played their hearts out the entire time! We have been to many weddings in the past year, and it’s rare to see people really not ready to go when the lights come on. By the time we were asked to leave, there were so many people still there so pumped to go out from such a great time.
I’d highly recommend spending the money and getting a class act with Cagen Music!

The music was outstanding
The music was outstanding and it made the wedding a time I will always remember and cherish! It’s so lovely to end the wedding on a perfect note. I don’t know if you need any publicity but I already, this morning, gave out your name to one of our guest. Thanks for everything.

Everybody had a great time and danced until the band stopped
I want to let you know before much more time passes how pleased we were with the music that Incognito provided for Emily and Peter’s reception. Everybody had a great time and danced until the band stopped. They did a superb job of providing music that really got people on the dance floor. The band told us at the end of the evening that they were having fun because the guests were having so much fun–and it really showed. The band was into the evening and we really appreciated their efforts to make it a great night. Please pass our thanks on to the band.
All the best,
