“So What Makes You Guys Different Than Other Boston Wedding Bands?”
Brides + Grooms, along with industry colleagues alike refer to our wedding band as being “the entire show”.
To us, this means providing all the facets of a performance. Whereby, we focus on a comprehensive package, rather than your hiring of multiple vendors to provide items we already cover as-standard.
In terms of a budget, one huge factor when comparing your options, is to calculate all your vendor costs on a per-person scale. We absolutely agree, planning a feast of $250 per person with 8 different hors d’oeuvres is impressive. Though on that same level playing field, our services quote in ~$50-60 per person range.
** As a result, a $5-7 per person shift (IE; one less cocktail hors d’oeuvre) could make the difference between hiring a basic band vs having a complete and exquisitely produced performance. :)
Pro Tip: Be on the lookout for a new industry trend of “Staffing Agencies”.
At their core, their principle is to book multiple events each day using the same band name, then assigning any randomly available musician from their Rolodex to piece together a “band”.
IE; the band seen in their videos/photos may not be the band who shows up on your wedding day.
On the flip, we take a completely upfront approach to wedding entertainment, providing consistent 5-star results with a band of dedicated world-class musicians, event planning, and high-end production.
Best of Boston Weddings -- Oh, Really??
Everyone Has “Best of” / “Choice” Awards!
How do we really tell who the best wedding bands are??
Keepin’ it real for a hot minute:
How many times have you seen bands advertising : “We’re the best of Boston” with the exact same badges as every othe bands in town? There’s nothing wrong with wanting to display a shiny badge on your website, though candidly speaking, the major wedding websites hand them out like candy. Truth is, as long as you receive a certain amount of reviews each year, they’re happy to give you an award for redirecting the website traffic back to them. Absolute brilliant marketing strategy… *golf clap*.
Of course, like anyone, we love receiving awards, regardless of how they’re curated! However, we’re truly honored by the recognition we receive from websites / publications like Style Me Pretty, Boston Magazine, People Magazine, The Improper Bostonian, My Mystic Wedding, etc. These websites have knowledgeable editors within the industry, who genuinely take the time to curate the best vendors. We’re so proud to say that we’ve been awarded by them all!
The Basics of Our Comprehensive Wedding Band Package
Show Production; Sound & Lighting Design
A true performance goes beyond hiring a band of great musicians. 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. Any band that says otherwise, simply doesn’t want to make the best-effort to provide a comprehensive show.
Our Tour-Quality Sound & Lighting with dedicated crew.
Fine-tuned with the energy bumpin’ on the dance floor, and comfortable volume-levels for Grandma to carry a conversation at her table.
Many bands attempt to have a musician manage their sound levels from the stage, and behind their speakers, all while playing their instrument at the same time. From that position, you can imagine the guessing game. Our production crew ensures everything will look and sound perfect!
Lighting may also be the most overlooked aspect of band performances.
Lighting makes a huge impact on the mood, energy and atmosphere of the room. We program our lighting scenes on a song-by-song basis; Ballads will have soft blue/purple hues… Pop-Rock songs will take on warmer red/orange tones. All lighting scenes are further enhanced with moving-head effect patterns on the ceiling and floor. This is in contrast to many bands who simply put up a few lights, and let them flash and strobe random colors.
Our Wedding was like a live concert.. And everyone had front row!
We offer above and beyond that of traditional Boston Wedding Bands.
We’d LOVE to perform for your Wedding Reception, Corporate Event or Private Party. This includes coverage from Cocktail Hour through an amazing Dance Party. We will customize our performance to your style and create a dynamic evening that’s totally “You”
