The Cool Rulers

"These guys had a big room full of 250 people dancing, singing and sweating all night long."


what we offer



Whether you're interested in hiring the full 10-piece band, as seen in our promo video, or customizing something else, we're here to help!  We can take the band from a pared down 7-piece ensemble with one singer to a 12-piece blow out with extra horns, percussion or guitar to fit your budget and vision.



If you're interested in live music during your ceremony or cocktail hour, we offer some unique configurations, ranging from classic solo guitar for the ceremony to a funky Afrobeat cocktail hour. Our network of musicians is so diverse that we can craft the perfect ensemble for any setting.



Many members of The Cool Rulers are also a part of the Brooklyn based Afrobeat band, Zongo Junction. If you're unfamiliar with this dance-inducing genre, take a listen at: This is a great option for clients looking for something less traditional that will have you and your guests dancing all night. This group can also be scaled down to a 5-piece for an upbeat cocktail hour set.
