Weddings Are All About Details
The Original Band + DJ Combo
The most awarded of all Boston Wedding Bands.
“Our wedding was like a concert and everyone had front row!” — “They’re more than a just a band, they are the entire show!”
We are a small, independent (non-agency managed) entertainment provider. Boston Common Band has been recognized by the most prominent, reputable and well-respected in the industry. As a result, we have received countless “Best of Boston Wedding Bands” awards from brides and grooms, and have been awarded in many prominent industry editor-curated media. (People Magazine, BRIDES, Conde Nast Media, Style Me Pretty, Boston Magazine, JuneBug Weddings, Wedding Chicks, etc.) In total, we have performed at nearly 1000 weddings or events from New England to Florida.
We are the pioneers of the Boston Wedding Band + DJ combo. It all started with us! Our Boston wedding bands are world renown for delivering incredible wedding experiences from Cocktail Hour through the Dance Party. Our wedding musicians provide exceptional entertainment, event uplighting, production and planning for brides and grooms. We also provide bands for corporate clientele. We travel and provide our wedding bands in Boston, Newport, Cape Cod, Nantucket, Florida, as well as revered destination weddings locations of the Caribbean, French Riviera, and Amalfi Coast.
Comprehensive Wedding Packages with Production & Planning
What Sets Our Wedding Band Apart?
Tour-Quality Sound, Lighting, & Production Logistics.
A performance goes beyond hiring a band of great wedding band musicians. If you’re unable to clearly hear the vocalists or see the band because the lights aren’t programmed to correctly reflect the energy of the song, you’re missing key ingredients of a great party. We ensure every facet of our wedding band performance is produced to the highest degree of attention.
Lighting is the most overlooked aspect of wedding band performances.
Lighting will have a dramatic impact on the mood, energy and atmosphere of your ballroom, tent, or event space. We have custom programming based on the song we’re actively performing. Compare our production with many wedding bands who only use a few small lights, letting them flash and strobe thru random colors.
What About The Sound System? What type of production do you have?
Our production crew finely-tunes our sound system to keep the energy bumpin’ on the dance floor. It will also be comfortable enough volume for Grandma and Aunt Edna to carry a conversation at their table. A typical wedding band will attempt to have a musician manage their sound levels from the stage, behind their speakers, and while playing their instrument at the same time.
In Total Candor -- Our Wedding Bands
Considering you have 7 million items on your wedding planning to-do list, allow us to take 3 million of them off your plate!
Our Boston wedding bands have you completely covered. Providing live entertainment from Cocktails through a phenomenal Dance Party.
Our Overall Style
We pride ourselves in burying cheeseball songs that you’ve heard far too many times at other weddings! We’ve tirelessly curated the absolute best songs from each genre and generation; During our wedding band sets, we’ll begin with all the best Motown R&B hits that will keep Mom, Dad, Aunt Edna on the dance floor; Then transition thru the Homecoming Jams of the 90s – 2000s, and finishing off the evening with the Classic Rock hits, and your guests busting out their air guitars.
Our up-front pricing takes away worries of hidden costs or any logistical items that might pop up during and throughout the planning process. In addition to the above, we’ve built and developed trusted relationships with the premier wedding venues of New England; In turn, having those partnerships and familiarity, your event will be an absolutely exquisite experience from start to finish.
Keepin’ it real for a hot minute:
How many musical wedding bands advertise the same two or three badges as 15 other bands in town? Nothing wrong with showing a badge on your website; But if everyone receives the same award, is it really worth anything?? In complete candor and context, these badges are given to simply redirect web traffic back to those sites. It’s a brilliant marketing strategy for them, but it doesn’t truly curate the “who’s who”.
Of course, it’s always great receiving an award.. However, it’s a true honor receiving recognition from websites and national publications like Style Me Pretty, Borrowed & Blue, Junebug Weddings, Wedding Chicks, Boston Magazine, People Magazine, The Improper Bostonian, My Mystic Wedding. Moreover and importantly, these are editor-curated sources, who genuinely take the time to award the best vendors in the area.. and we’re proud to say that we’ve been awarded by them all!
