Without this band our wedding day would not have been the same!
Anyone who has planned a wedding before will tell you that it’s a lot of work. If they’re lucky, they can also attest to it being a lot of fun at times too. Thankfully, we are one of those lucky couples that can make that claim and we owe a lot of that to our brilliant band: Clockwork Boston. This review will be lengthy, but we make no apologies for it because whatever time and effort we put into this review will pale in comparison to what they did for us and they deserve their due. So, buckle up, here we go.
Decisions must be made on countless items when planning a wedding and often the couple may not always agree. They may also have varying levels of caring about certain matters that require decisions (napkins anyone?). For us, the music wasn’t one of those matters. We both felt strongly, and we were both in agreement: we wanted a band and not just any band would do. Thus, our search began. We spent hours listening to clips online, trying to remember which weddings we attended had good bands, who had we seen locally at a bar or restaurant, but none stood out. None had left a lasting impression that would be suitable enough for our big day. It wasn’t until we were talking with a friend who was raving about the band at her sister’s wedding that we were turned onto Clockwork. So, we logged onto their website and found a few clips and they sounded pretty good, but we still wondered how it would sound live. A lot of these clips you’ll hear of bands online are produced and edited to the nth degree and it can be deceiving as to how it sounds live. We contacted the band to inquire and check availability and Ron encouraged us to come check them out. We looked up where Clockwork would be playing next and marked our calendar. Well that night came, and we went to go see the band and the rest was history. We didn’t even make it through the first song before we both looked at each other and we just knew: this was it; this was our wedding band; they just didn’t know it yet. They nailed every song, one after another and the energy they put into their set permeated the room. Referring back to our earlier comments about wedding planning being fun… well we booked Clockwork for our wedding and still went to go see them two more times because we just could not get enough. Each and every member of this band brings it every time and they’re all so phenomenally talented.
Ron was so easy to work with and beyond accommodating that he gave us a real sense of comfort and trust. He allowed us to come up with ideas for the way we envisioned the wedding from ceremony to introductions to the reception and everything in between. Essentially, it was “tell me what you’re thinking, and we’ll make it happen.” That right there says it all about Ron and Clockwork. They’re a supremely talented group but they don’t set out to make it about themselves, they really are in it for you and want to make your event special. That being said, they’re also extremely confident in their abilities and know that if you are willing to defer to them on set list, arrangements, etc. that they will pack that dance floor like it’s nobody’s business and everyone will have a great time. Needless to say, Clockwork did not disappoint. In fact, they blew our expectations out of the water! True to their word, the dance floor was packed from the jump to the very last song (you’ll be surprised at who you see out there – even people who normally don’t leave their seats). We lost track of how many people made comments, asked where we found them, or approached the band on their own. Clockwork doesn’t appeal to just a certain age or demo either. This band will grab you no matter where you fall in line: whether you are young or old, reserved or outgoing, love to dance or you’re just a toe-tapper and everyone else in between. The versatility of this band and these vocalists is beyond comprehension. It does not matter what you’re looking for, trust us – they have it.
As we’ve stated, the talent and versatility of each musician and singer in this group is truly remarkable but we’d be remised if we did not single out Moussa. However you choose to define the ‘it factor’ he has IT, and he has it in spades! What an absolute showman he is and the passion and energy that he brings to the performance is infectious. He was everywhere too; we’d even be willing to bet that he interacted with more guests at the wedding than we did! You know that age old proverb “Do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life” well we’re just going to assume that Moussa is the personification of that proverb. It never seemed like he was ‘working’ but rather having a good time and making sure we all did as well. That same mindset really goes for all of Clockwork as they undoubtedly brought the house down. This group is so inclusive that it makes it next to impossible for anyone not to enjoy themselves. Beyond that, an added bonus has been that most of our guests were moved enough to capture their own recordings so we get to relive the moments over and over again as we all share videos with one another! A month later, and we still don’t go a day without someone talking about that night and how incredible the music was. We planned a night out to go see Clockwork perform again, and the number of people wanting to join us grows bigger by the day! Surely, we’re echoing the sentiments of everyone who has hired Clockwork before us, but booking them was one of the best decisions we ever made. If you have the opportunity to book Clockwork for your wedding or any other event you really shouldn’t hesitate. Our wedding turned out better than we ever could have hoped for and we will forever be grateful that Clockwork provided the soundtrack to the first day of the rest of our lives together!Sent on 03/23/2020

Very flexible and supportive!
We have had an excellent experience with Clockwork so far. Unfortunately, we had to reschedule our wedding because of coronavirus-related restrictions, but their team has been extremely responsive, flexible, and supportive of working with us to shift to a new date. Although we have not had them perform at our wedding yet, we wanted to review their excellent service! We are grateful to have them as part of our amazing vendor team and would strongly recommend them to any couple looking for a wonderful band! The customer service has been consistent since day one. We are looking forward to having them with us at our wedding next year!Sent on 05/26/2020

The BEST band
We booked Clockwork with zero hesitation after seeing them and enjoying their performance at my brother’s wedding. They are phenomenal singers, musicians, and performers. Ron is great to work with, highly responsive and organized, I couldn’t have been more happy knowing he and the band would follow through with amazing entertainment. They had the whole wedding dancing and enjoying themselves the entire night! Truly, everyone was on their feet and having an absolute blast. We were complimented all night long and well into the following weeks by EVERYONE for ‘having such an amazing wedding band.’ It was the best night with the best band. I highly recommend Clockwork, many, many times over.Sent on 03/30/2020
Fabulous Band!!! Love it when they play at our property! They really know how to Rock it up! KIM
From the top down, they are true professionals... and when it comes to creating a party at your wedding, you NEED to have a band that can "bring-it". Clockwork does all that and more. Don't be fooled by other bands and their flashy claims... take it from someone in the industry. As their peer and colleagues, we're happy to fully endorse Clockwork!
Clockwork played at a wedding I photographed at Church Landing, Meredith, NH. They had the dancefloor PACKED all night. They also happily let the bride and bridesmaids sing "Hold On" by Wilson Phillips (they were big fans of the Bridesmaid Movie). I would happily recommend them - amazing voices and music!
