The Wedding Band FAQ -- In Total Candor
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 comprehensively covered. Covering you from Cocktails thru a phenomenal Dance Party.
Our Overall Style
Stick a fork in those stale cheeseball songs that you hear at every other wedding! We focus on 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 Bangers of the 90s – 2000s, and lastly finish off the evening with the Classic Rock hits where we usually see guests busting out their air guitars.
*Our mission is to involve EVERYONE, age 5-75 into the fun!
Our up-front pricing also takes away the 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 all of the premier wedding venues in 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!
The “Production” of the performance is just as valuable.
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 out on the key ingredients of a great party.
Lighting may be the most overlooked aspect of wedding band performances.
Lighting will make a huge impact on the mood, energy and atmosphere of the room or event space. We have custom programming based on the song we’re actively performing. This is in contrast to many bands who will simply put up a few lights, and let them flash and random strobe thru colors.. Yikes!
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. Compared to a typical band who manages their sound levels with a musician on-stage, behind their speakers; Which if you can imagine, is a guessing-game.
Yes, We Travel Quite Well!
While our wedding bands core-focus performance area is the Boston, Newport, Cape Cod region; We travel up and down the East Coast, as well as the Midwest.
We also perform destination weddings in the Caribbean, as well as Europe, (Italy and France).
We’ve got you on lock!
Our packages include complete reception coverage, including wedding musicians from Cocktail Hour through Last Dance, for up to (6) total hours! We’ll have all facets of your evening covered by our Band + DJ combo.
Typical wedding musicians will quote for 4 hour block, which doesn’t include cocktail hour, and also leaves you hanging if you’re extending your reception to 6 hours… All of which being ‘upcharges’. With us, it’s all-in, and no worries!
