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.

We were married on 9/16/17 and had Closing Time play for our reception as well as provide acoustic guitar for our ceremony and a live trio for the cocktail hour. We were SO blown away! We hadn't heard the band play live before hiring them so we were relying on the promo video and other videos of them playing live when we chose them. While they sound great in those videos, there is NO comparison to how AMAZING they are in person! It's over a week after our wedding and our guests are still telling us how much they loved the band. Murray Hill Talent and the band leader, Ryan, were so easy to work with and so accommodating. The band itself is just insanely talented, has a great energy and plays such a crowd-pleasing repertoire of songs. We had an absolute blast and would not hesitate to hire them again!Sent on 02/24/2018

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!!Sent on 05/02/2019

Best part of our wedding
When we were first dating we would go to a few bars in Boston to see this amazing band. We never dreamed we'd be able to have them at our wedding but they truly made our dreams come true !!! They are crazy talented and gave our guests the BEST DANCE PARTY at our wedding in Kennebunkport ME. We received ENDLESS compliments from our wedding guests saying it was the best band they had EVER seen at a wedding and how much fun they had because of them. Ryan, the band leader, had a long phone conference with us beforehand to make sure we had all of the details ironed out and he knew all of our song choices/name pronunciations/schedule/etc. He was extremely organized and professional. He did a great job announcing everything we asked him to during our wedding and has an amazing voice! The female lead singer was just as incredible and I would highly recommend doing the 6 piece or 7 piece band so that she can cover the female songs. They played a wide array of songs from 60s-90s-today which is what we requested and had our guests on the dance floor ALL night long. We can never thank this band enough for making our wedding as incredible as it was - they are SO worth hiring for your wedding !!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Closing Time!Sent on 09/07/2019
