We've all seen those lip-sync'ed music videos, and let's keep it real for a second.  Why is there the need to film a video with lasers, confetti blasters and backup dancers; when realistically those things never happen at a wedding. File this under: Things that make you go 'hmm'.

Our videos showcase a true representation, of what really happens at our wedding band performances.

Bride and Parents Dancing with Boston Wedding Band
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 Wedding Bands Cost?

In terms of planning your wedding entertainment budget, live Boston wedding bands can vary in size, as well as the packages 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, 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.

Pro Tip:
One huge factor when comparing your options, is to evaluate your vendor costs on a per-person scale.

We absolutely agree, planning a feast of $400 per person with 9 different types of hors d'oeuvres is an impressive affair. However, when put on the same playing field, our music services quote in the ~$75 per person range for an average size wedding!  

As a result, even a shift of $10 per person (IE; one less cocktail hors d'oeuvre) could be the difference between hiring simple entertainment vs having an exquisite party band for your guests.

Moreover, a general rule of thumb is to allocate ~15% of your wedding budget, if you're looking to hire a phenomenal live wedding band.

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. Moreover, the most important item is getting the band locked in on your date. If you're unsure of some of the specifics or options we have available, we are certainly happy to add those options later on!
