I am in dire need of guidance in this subject matter.
I am looking for a GREAT Russian band who can do both Russian songs and an entire range of American songs, from jazz, to Top 40, to rock, to latin. I know it’s possible, I’m just not in the scene enough to know where to start looking.
If the band includes a dj, that is also ok.
Any ideas, guys?

Well… I’m certainly no expert on Russian music, so take this with a grain of salt, but a good place to start might be at really nice Russian restaurants. (In NYC the Russian Tea Room springs to mind although I’ve never been there so wouldn’t know for sure.) They might have live music and/or know where to find it! Also, see if your area has a Russian heritage group because they would definitely be able to put you in touch with a Russian band (and if you’re near NYC I’m sure there’s something like this!). Hope this helps and GL!
Also, just out of curiosity, why are you so intent on such a range of music? Are you or FI Russian? Just wondering!

@hollygowedding: Hey, thanks so much for your response. i put out some feelers with family members so they are trying to help me with this as well. Hopefully, we find someone!
Haha, in regards to this particular mix of music, both FI and I were born in America but have parents who came from Ukraine and Latvia. They still love Russian music and have Russian friends so there is no way we can go without it (although I would love to just get a dj).
Oh well, they are helping a lot with the wedding so they definitely have a say in this aspect of the wedding, so I’m trying to please all of us.
Thanks again for the response!
