5 stars all the way. Our wedding rocked because of these guys!! Highly recommended, couldn't say not only enough about them but all the guitarist Fil Pacino they recommended for our afterparty
As soon as we started wedding planning, we knew we wanted a band. The problem was, we had no idea where to start. Thankfully, my Mom spoke with a friend who recently attended a wedding that Boston Common Band performed at--she said you HAVE to book this band, they were so fun, everyone was dancing the entire night, etc, etc. We were living in Dallas at the time so did not have the ability to meet or see bands live prior to booking them. We watched one YouTube video and immediately made the call, which was probably the best decision we made in our entire wedding planning process.
Boston Common Band was AWESOME!!! They were fun, high energy, and kept us dancing all night long. Literally, there was not a moment during our entire reception that the dance floor wasn't packed! They play a huge variety of hits from different decades, work with an awesome DJ (DJ J Boogz), and were just the best ever. We had so many guests commenting on how amazing they were. They were incredibly prompt and professional throughout the planning process, and made everything as stress-free as possible. They use a great wedding planning portal to you arrange your timeline and specific songs and scan popular songs by category for inspiration and a guide for the vibe you want to create. I had so many little questions as I organized our timeline and made our selections, and they always answered right away, with a kind and thorough response. DJ J-Boogz kept our large bridal party (20 people) organized and on schedule before introductions, and started off the night with great energy. The band learned a specific movie version of our first dance song and made our first dance feel so personalized and special. Then, they really kicked the party off and had the dance floor packed within seconds.
I am so happy with how our celebration turned out and a large part of how wonderful it was is owed to the incredible performance by Boston Common Band. I can't recommend them enough!
Words cannot express how lucky we feel to have chosen the Boston Common Band for our wedding on 8/15/15—in fact, it was one of, if not the best decision we made for our special day!
We had gotten engaged exactly a year before our wedding date and knew we wanted a band and had trouble finding one because all the bands in the Boston area (and even bands that were not) were already booked! We panicked but came across the Boston Common band – our wedding was the last Saturday of the summer they had available! It seemed like fate.
Long story short is we were never able to see them play prior to our wedding and I promise you—they delivered nothing short of an AMAZING and memorable night.
Prior to our wedding they were responsive and would check in each month to see how we were doing and also to remind us to fill out our online planner—which made the timeline for the evening super smooth. We even discussed options like including an “anniversary” dance and how that might affect how the night would go. Jeff and the other members of the band was so easy—they even made suggestions for songs, how things should progress during the night and were totally flexible with everything we wanted. They truly showed that they cared so much about my husband and I and to me, during the wedding planning process, that is truly priceless.
On the night of our wedding, our guests ate dinner in a tent and moved inside for dancing. They were so flexible with having multiple locations and made the transition seamless. After heading into the ballroom after dinner, when I say that the dance floor was occupied ALL night, it truly was! There was not a moment when the dance floor wasn’t full—and of course as you plan a wedding, this is one of the main things you want for your day—your guests to have as much fun as the bride and groom.
The energy of the band was incredible and I truly can’t say enough about how amazing the Boston Common Band was. We got so many compliments on “our band” !!
When we started the planning for our big day there were certain aspects of the day that were very important to is. One of those being, our music! We knew we wanted a band, but liked the idea of a DJ too and with The Boston Common Band you get both! From the beginning they were super easy to communicate with and what we loved most about them was that they weren't just a typical wedding band. They took the time to get to know the two of us and the music we liked. The wedding planner they use to help plan your big day helps you to feel super organized (and when you're a bride and thinking about a million different things all at once), its nice to feel organized :) From the second they started playing at our reception our guests didn't leave the dance floor! They certainly know how to throw a good party and are amazingly talented! Your wedding day is one of/if not the best day of your life and you only get one chance to do it right. Go with The Boston Common Band to ensure your big day will be one that you and all your guests will remember for a lifetime!
The Boston Common Band is amazing! They definitely were the highlight of our wedding and all our guests could not stop talking about them afterward (and to this day!). Everyone was dancing the entire night because of their great set list and infectious energy. Their YouTube videos don't do them justice - they absolutely rock! At the end of the night, people were chanting "one more song!" because they didn't want the night to end. They were very professional and easy to work with. Thanks Boston Common for making our wedding night the best night of our lives!
Boston Common Band made our reception! If you want to ensure that you and your guests have the time of their lives at your wedding reception, hire Boston Common Band. We were in a state of shock when we heard them start to play our first dance because of how fantastic the band was! The musicians all had incredible energy and talent that kept our dance floor completely packed all night long. Josh, our DJ, helped us throughout the planning process and was incredibly professional and well-organized. He even worked with some student musicians we asked to play at our ceremony and reception to set up sound equipment and make sure they had everything they needed! We seriously can’t say enough about the quality of this band and how their performance was the primary reason we’re still hearing from guests about our awesome wedding! Thank you Josh, Jonathan, and Boston Common Band!
If I could have given this group 100 stars, I would have. The band was absolutely OUTSTANDING! You can do NO wrong here, trust me. For the guests who didn't dance, they watched on the side while the band put on a great show. They were super interactive with the crowd and I wanted to continue to dance the night away. I honestly cannot say enough about this group, you will not be disappointed. They learn a song for you at your request, and truly play to the crowd. And they play everything under the sun- from Michael Jackson to Kim Carnes. If I could have them play at every event, I would. Go see them, you cannot go wrong here people!!!!!! I have guests still coming up to me nearly two weeks later saying that they were the most outstanding wedding band they had ever seen. Cheers!
BOOK THIS BAND. I can't describe how amazing they made our night. The dance floor was never empty, and people are still telling us how they'll never forget the band's performance. The instrumentalists were truly talented, the singers had incredible energy, and they all worked together for a spectacular show. I wish I could re-live their performance over again!
On top of the actual musicianship, working with the band leading up to the wedding was great. They added no stress to our already-busy schedule, and made sure to get everything perfect.
Boston Common + DJ Shyne were absolutely amazing - they did THE perfect job of getting people on the dance floor and keeping them there. Their energy was amazing and contagious. They did such a great job of engaging the crowd, young and old. I got so many compliments on the "band + DJ combination" and would absolutely recommend them to anyone who's looking for an epic wedding dance party!
Meghan & Tyler -- It was our pleasure... you guys totally rock and we couldn't have been more happy to perform for such a wonderful group of people!!
This band is amazing. They are so professional and responsive. They spent a lot of time working through exactly what we wanted and understanding our music preferences. They learned a grateful dead song and not well known country song for us and performed them perfectly. They knew how to read the crowd and played a perfect mix of old and new songs. In addition, we had a schedule issue due to timing of the food and they handled it expertly. I would recommend them to anyone. All of my guests raved about them!
Boston Common Band did a terrific job for our July 5th wedding - they made sure to spend plenty of time discussing the plans over the phone, were extremely thorough and professional, and were overall just a GREAT Band that every guest at our wedding loved. Everyone commented on how there was not one person sitting down - they truly got EVERYONE involved and the crowd was just electric due to the Band's awesome energy. From the intro's to the song selections, they knew exactly how to make it an unbelievably fun night. They even had some break dancers which was a great and unexpected addition to the fun. Highly recommend them!!!
I can't say enough great things about our experience with the Boston Common Band!! Throughout our lengthy wedding planning process, Jonathan and Josh (DJ J-Boogz) were always quick to respond and provide helpful feedback to any of a wide variety of questions I sent their way. Josh was super on top of making sure that people were where they needed to be for entrances, speeches, etc. and coordinating other last minute changes on the day of our wedding. Knowing that he had everything under control allowed me to relax and enjoy every moment of our big day! Most importantly, the band's performance was phenomenal!! I can't count the number of guests who have raved about how much they loved the band! They even managed to get a few of those guests (who NEVER dance) up off their chairs and onto the dance floor!
If you're looking for a band for your wedding, you won't be disappointed by the Boston Common Band!! Their professionalism and amazing talent will make your wedding planning process that much easier and ensure a great party for your guests!
This band is great. They really read the room and play music that keeps the energy high and the crowd happy. The DJ is the combo package is awesome - he kept the wedding moving and played great music during the band's break. Everyone complimented me on the music and everyone was dancing all night!
The BCB has a great set up in that the package includes 8 band members plus a DJ. The DJ plays during the band’s set breaks. They also have a keyboard player who played during cocktail hour for us. The band is extremely talented, and the DJ was also great at getting people out on the dance floor. They are very well organized with a great online system for sending them your schedule, song requests, do-not-play songs, etc. My husband had a call with DJ Shyne a week before and he helped us further figure out our entire timeline. DJ Shyne was also the MC and did an amazing job – didn’t butcher anyone’s name, timed the entrance songs perfectly. He even helped us transition from “My Girl” to gangnam style for the father-daughter dance –not an easy thing to do but he really made it work! My only small complaint was that there were a number of songs I put on our “must play” list which were never played, as far as I know. This could happen with other bands as well, not sure! I call it a small complaint though because overall I was so pleased with our choice of music, the band is so talented and played some great stuff! I should also mention that the DJ took care of our lighting for us in the venue, so we had some great uplighting, which he matched perfectly to my wedding colors. Highly recommend!
Boston Common Band was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding. I think every single one of our 172 guests came up to us and said that they were unbelievable. They truly took our wedding to the next level. What an amazingly talented group. If you are looking for a great wedding band that will make your event unforgettable, look no further.
The Boston Common Band was fantastic! I was a little nervous since I hadn't actually gone to see them play, but the moment they started in on the first dance song, we knew it was going to be great! They played to the crowd and everyone at the wedding was up and dancing. I would recommend them to anyone.
