Long Island wedding band and privite party band hi def

Hi Def is a high-quality Long Island private-party band. They typically perform at Weddings and corporate events.

However, in a smart marketing move, they performed as part of Farmingdale Music on Main 2018, which was sponsored by the Farmingdale Village Merchants Association.

Their set was highly eclectic, covering some of the newer pop hits such as Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” and Maren Morris and Zedd’s “The Middle,” as well as the classics.

According to Markos Papadatos, “D’Orta performed Rihanna’s “We Found Love” with grace, and incorporated it as a medley with Whitney Houston’s upbeat “I Wanna Dance with Somebody.” D’Orta showcased her tremendous vocal range on the signature Guns N’ Roses tune “Sweet Child o’ Mine,” which received a major response from the crowd.”
