Wilson Stevens was extremely helpful, professional, and knowledgeable with all things associated with the music for our wedding ceremony and reception!
The Hub was absolutely phenomenal and exceeded any expectations that we had. We had such a blast dancing the night away with them and we could not have asked for a better performance. They played the perfect combination of music throughout the evening and we would not have changed a thing. Not only have all of our guests gushed about how incredible The Hub was, but staff members at the venue were videotaping some of the performance because they were so amazing!! Words cannot express our gratitude to The Hub for making our day so special and a party that we will never forget!
Absolutely 100% would recommend working with Wilson Stevens Productions, Inc. for your wedding!!! I met Justin, the operations manager, through a friend who had been to one of their showcases- emailed him and he let me know when the next showcase would be held! He was nice enough to let me know in advance of the showcase which bands were still available for our date and give me a little bit of info about each band. Lucky for us, because we were booking so far advance, almost all the bands still had availability! We then attended the showcase and heard 4 or 5 bands play a mini-set of songs to show off their talents! We all fell in love with One Step Ahead immediately because we loved their song selections and we especially loved Lilly, the lead female vocalist- she has an absolutely amazing voice!
Dave, the band leader, was a pleasure to work with- he was so easy going and made the whole process really fun and even worked with me (and was very patient) on some unique/special elements we wanted to include.
At the wedding the bands kicked things off to a GREAT start when they played a few songs before dinner. This way everyone was up and dancing from the start of the night and just having an absolute ball. Their song selections were perfect, they played to the crowd and it was so much fun. I cannot tell you how many people came up to us at the wedding and have reached out after the fact to tell us how GREAT the band was. I do recall at the end of the night as they closed out their set that the crowd started chanting "one more song, one more song..." They were kind enough to give us one more song and certainly sent us off dancing at the end of the night!!
Everything from the initial planning to our reception was seamless with Wilson Stevens. We absolutely LOVED One Step Ahead and it was just such an easy/fun experience! Worth every penny :)
The Wilson Stevens group was recommended by our caterer who is located in Woodstock, Vt which is near where we were having our reception on a beautiful farm in North Pomfret, Vt. in a restored 200 year old barn.
I chose One Step Ahead after viewing several videos of bands on the website. I loved their energy and interactions with the guests at the reception. They also had a great song list and willing to learn some new songs for us. I loved the three lead singers each with their own style and the guy with the sax was amazing!
They were also professional and tailored their song sets to the guests. The dance floor was full until the last song at the end of the night. Everyone commented how great the band was and I would recommend them to any bridal couple without reservation.
Wilson Stevens responded to any questions and requests and made the whole process easy.
If you are thinking about using Wilson Stevens, you don't need to think about it any longer....BOOK THEM! We had the honor of having Splash! perform at our wedding. Splash! was absolutely incredible. Jared, Jen, Mick, Julian and the entire band completely made our wedding! People are still talking about Splash! and how they have never seen such an awesome band! Justin, Tim and Katlin were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and reassuring. We requested that the band learn two songs, and they nailed both of them! Jared is an amazing emcee, and totally killed it! He really got the party started during introductions! We felt really lucky because Splash! felt more like friends performing at our wedding. This was something that was important to us. Literally everyone was dancing at our wedding, even the people who don't normally dance. My husband's grandparents who do not dance were even out for a few dances. The band's versatility is just incredible. They played Bruce Springsteen, Biggie Smalls, Beyonce and Frank Sinatra....just to name a few. Splash! really interacted with all the guests and got in on the party.
Splash! is seriously the best!
August 29, 2015 was the date, Fort Adams in Newport R.I. was the place, Beantown was the band and this all added up to wonderful memories.
This was a destination wedding. Every person who attended has let us know “that band” was wonderful, fabulous, awesome, the adjectives come quickly when I run into people who were at the wedding – they helped make my daughter’s wedding an event to remember not only for the bride and groom but for the entire guest list.
During the planning process leading up to the wedding everyone we dealt with was considerate and helpful of all of our needs. From the beginning of the evening the members of the band were helpful, courteous, entertaining, interactive and considerate of our guests. I highly recommend Beantown for any event you might be having. Fair warning – be prepared to dance your shoes off and sing loud and often. Thanks to all who helped make our event such memorable occasion.
Protege was AMAZING! I think they really gave us the edge in making this a memorable and fun event for all of our guests. One of the lead singers told us that, in his entire musical career, he had never seen a crowd that was ready to dance so early in the evening. (I think within 10-15 mins, many people were already on the dance floor.) I think most of our guests were not used to having a live band at a wedding, and so this was a treat for most. The band's emceeing was spot on all night. The band did an amazing job reading the crowd and picking all the right songs to play, and equally appealed to the younger and older generations, as well as our international crowd. I've already received several comments from guests asking me who the band was and how fun and memorable the evening was. They were the "icing on the cake" in our celebration.
Protege truly made a difference and made our wedding extra special.
We booked the band Splash! through Wilson Stevens for our wedding in late August. Overall, they were both incredible! The staff at Wilson Stevens were very responsive to phone calls and e-mail. We added several additional elements (ceremony music, sound system) after booking Splash! and they made this process extremely easy. And I cannot say enough about Splash!--they were amazing!!! They are incredible musicians. We asked them to learn our first dance song and our father daughter song and they did an incredible job. Splash! read the crowd well and kept the music varied and exciting. They were so fantastic that some of our guests said we should find an excuse to book them again for a party next year!
The band was out of this world. Our guests could not stop asking us where we found One Step Ahead. There was never a moment when the dance floor was not full. Band members kept the energy high all night long. One of my highlights from the whole wedding night was when Jayo, the saxophone player, came out onto the dance floor and played a solo for us during our first dance. Another highlight, was when Lilly came out on the floor to sing and dance in the crowd. I can't speak highly enough of One Step Ahead. They made our reception everything we could have hoped for.
Free Style did an terrific job at my daughter's wedding. They engaged the entire multigenerational audience and kept the party hopping. They were responsive to my daughter's play list requests, and learnt three new songs specifically for her wedding. Musically they were polished and professional, and did an outstanding job emceeing the event. Our guests are still telling us how much they loved the band.
Beantown is simply the *only* New England wedding band if you want to have an amazing dance party. They are so talented, interactive, and fun. We got countless compliments along the lines of “that was the best wedding band we’ve ever seen.” One engaged couple in New York plans to use Beantown for their upcoming nuptials despite the distance!!! Beantown really listened to us -- we shared our ideal music selections and they played almost all of our favorite dance songs (they listen to the crowd to pick their songs rather than strictly follow your list but they also incorporated almost every single of the 25ish songs we wanted them to play, all at the right time). Thank you Beantown – you came exceptionally highly rated but did not disappoint. It was absolutely amazing and our wedding was exactly how we wanted it thanks to you -- the best party of our lives.
We found Beantown on the Wilson-Stevens website and booked them a year in advance and we were so fortunate that they were available!! Anita, Tim, and Justin were so easy to work with. Two band members provided the ceremony music, , two played for the cocktail hour, and of course the whole eleven piece band performed at the reception. All of our guests loved the band, we received countless compliments, and the dance floor was packed the entire night!! The musicians are so talented and entertaining and it was the best decision we made In regards to wedding planning. Thanks to all the band members and staff I dealt with!!
We hired Protege through Wilson Stevens, and they helped make our wedding night amazing! The booking process was very smooth, and we were able to submit a list of song preferences beforehand. Protege nailed all of our first dance songs, and had everyone on the dance floor! They have an excellent repertoire; we had guests of all ages dancing. They were very personable, and very enthusiastic about our event. Many of our guests came to us asking for Protege's contact information for their own weddings. Wilson Stevens and Protege are an excellent choice!
Radiance was AMAZING - they had everyone dancing the entire night. We were a little hesitant about investing so much in a band versus, but it was 100% worth it. If you are looking for a band that will guarantee a good time, then I HIGHLY recommend Radiance. Not only were they a great band, but they are the nicest group of people. They ended up hanging out with us way after the wedding was over and they were a blast. I know it is a big investment among the other costs associated with having a wedding, but do yourselves a favor and BOOK THESE GUYS!
Boss, the band who played our Cape Cod wedding via Wilson Stevens Productions, is one of the best in the business. This band can seriously play! One of the best I've witnessed. The lead singer was amazing and engaged the crowd to the utmost.
They are especially adept at everything funk and rock n' roll (but can play everything). ALL of our wedding guests were up and dancing all night long.
Boss was so good that one wedding guest asked them to perform at one of his events.
All around wonderful!
Signature was absolutely amazing at our wedding on July 18th! They kept the dance floor full all night long with their fantastic song selections. Our guests loved that members of the band came out onto the dance floor during their performances. Everyone we've talked to after the wedding has raved about Signature and how great they were. They are an extremely talented group of musicians and we made a great decision hiring them for our wedding!
