About CLOSING TIME

Showcasing Boston’s most entertaining musicians, CLOSING TIME performs weekly to capacity crowds at corporate events, clubs, casinos, colleges, and is quickly becoming one of the most sought after wedding bands on the East Coast. Each of our shows is an unforgettable night of entertainment, featuring all the greatest hit songs of yesterday and today.

Band Leader Ryan Engebretson and our representatives at Murray Hill Talent are with you every step of the way, from your first phone call to performing on your special day. Every couple is encouraged to help shape the set list and request songs that they would like to hear, along with supplying a do-not play list. Each member of Closing Time is a seasoned, professional musician, so if there is a song that you would like on your wedding day that is not currently a part of our song list, we would be happy to learn it for you.

Our goal is to help make your wedding day flow as smoothly as possible. Our musicians are available to provide live music for your ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. We offer customizable packages designed to fit any wedding entertainment budget.

WEDDING SERVICES OFFERED

Ceremony: Closing Time offers a live music package for the ceremony, which includes your choice of acoustic guitar and/or piano. We also offer DJ services, wireless microphones for the officiant and readers, a sound system so that everything can be heard clearly, and a sound engineer for seamless production.

Cocktail Hour: Closing Time also offers a live music package for the cocktail hour; our most popular option features our Band Leader, Ryan, on vocals and acoustic guitar. We also offer a piano soloist, a guitar/piano duo, and a saxophone/guitar/piano trio. In addition, the band is also available to provide DJ services.

Dinner: Closing Time's full band performs a relaxing, quiet selection of music, ranging from Frank Sinatra to Ed Sheeran, while you and your guests enjoy your meals.

Reception: This is where the party really gets started! Closing Time provides you with the most entertaining and diverse dance sets, including songs from the past 60 years that have proven to be huge “dance floor fillers” and “crowd pleasers”. We are flexible in size, performing as anything from a 5 to 8-piece band. Our most popular option is the 7-piece band, featuring our male and female lead vocalists, trumpet, saxophone, acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, bass, and drums. An additional horn player can be added by request as well. DJ services are also provided between sets at no additional charge.

    Amazing everything

    Working with Closing Time was amazing!! Ryan was very responsive and accommodating. We got SO many compliments on how good they were, and having both a male an female vocalist performing really gave it an extra something. Closing Time really made the party!!

    Wedding Date 12/08/2018

    The Closing Time Band were an absolute pleasure to work with. Band Leader, Ryan had a clear understanding of what it takes to
    provide exceptional entertainment for our guests, while we able to focus on simply enjoying our event.
    The methodical professionalism set forth by Ryan's pre planning with us was priceless.
    His attention to detail went beyond anything we would have thought of ourselves, right down to engineering the sound quality of the full band to this specific venue, so that the music was audibly enjoyable for all our guests.
    The tremendous talent of the musicians would end up being dwarfed by Ryan's ability to tactfully and personably emcee the event.
    As the night progressed, we understood it was the band, Closing Time, that represented to our guests the wedding day that we had planned so carefully. Besides the bride and groom, the band was our guests focal point and 'The Vibe" brought forth was a wonderful visual and musical spectacle as the wedding planner, florists, caterer, and everything else went unseen.
    Now, 6 weeks later, our guests still rave of the unforgettable celebration that took place!
    I am grateful that I was able to talk my daughter the bride, from a Ho-Hum D.J with tacky props, to the upscale entertainment that Closing Time brought to the table.

    Father of the Bride, Dave.
