The Boston Common Band was honestly the BEST decision that my husband and I made when it came to our wedding.
We both have large, crazy families who love to dance, and we knew we had to deliver the party of the year, and with Boston Common Band, that's exactly what we got!  Their energy was absolutely incredible and infectious, and literally everyone was on the dance floor from the first song to the last (no joke)!!  The band wasn't only energetic but also SO talented.  From the vocalists to the drums to the horns, every member was a truly a rockstar.

In a single word: Electric
When we signed the Boston Common Band for our wedding we had high expectations, and they went far and above them. Words cannot describe how awesome they were. They were exactly what we needed for our special day, they brought an unbelievable energy that matched the quality music they played all night. Guests came up to my wife and I during and after the reception to tell us they were the best wedding band they had ever seen.

As a wedding planner with over 15 years of experience...
I was blown away by Boston Common Band - and this was before they even played ONE note!!!  They were well organized in all pre-event communication, answered emails, requests and confirmations at lighting speed.  On the day of the team were BEYOND helpful, professional and team players.  The music and emcee talents are simply the best. The band had the dance floor PACKED from the jump and even though I was on my feet for a solid 15 hours that day -- I didn't want them to stop playing!!!  Thank you for making this a DREAM day for the client and vendor team!!!

How Much Do Boston Wedding Bands Cost?

In terms of planning your wedding entertainment budget, live wedding bands can vary in size, as well as the packages being offered. It will also be dependent on the 'vibe' you're looking for. You could be looking to throw an all night rage fest with a large, high energy, Boston party band. Or, the potential to host a cocktail style, chill evening with background jazz. One thing is for certain, we'll have the perfect playlist delivered to you with elegant style and finesse.

Helpful Insights:
Consider comparing your vendor costs on a per-person basis for a more realistic assessment and where to allocate value.

Yes, a stunning venue and an extravagant banquet priced at over $600 per person with premium beverages and a dozen diverse hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour can indeed create a lavish spectacle. However, when compared proportionally, our musical services equate to around $75 per person for an average-sized wedding!

Generally, a full-service wedding band in Boston will have starting pricing between $10,000 and $15,000. Moreover, a commonly followed guideline suggests allocating approximately 15% of your wedding reception budget if you're looking to secure an outstanding live wedding band.

Additionally, a minor adjustment of about $10 per person (perhaps one less cocktail hors d'oeuvre variety) could mean the difference between settling for a basic band package and acquiring a top-tier, comprehensive party band to dazzle your guests.

That being said, we typically book weddings in New England 12 to 18, and sometimes even up to 24 months in advance for the most popular dates. Securing your date with the band is of paramount importance. If you're uncertain about some specifics or the options we offer, we can undoubtedly add those at a later stage!
