About CLOSING TIME

Showcasing Boston’s most entertaining musicians, CLOSING TIME is quickly becoming one of the most sought after wedding bands on the East Coast. On top of bringing the party to 40+ weddings per year, the band performs weekly to capacity crowds at clubs, colleges, casinos, private parties, and corporate functions ranging from a 5 to 9-piece band. Each show 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 you 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 and to keep you and your guests dancing and singing along all night long. 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.

    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!!

    Best Decision We Made!

    We knew that we wanted a band at our wedding, and hiring Closing Time was one of the best decisions we made throughout the planning process! During our wedding, Ryan ran the music at our ceremony and played acoustic guitar at cocktail hour. For the reception, we had the 7 piece band. The flow of the evening was awesome and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. We did ask Closing Time to learn our first dance song, and it was perfect. Additionally, the set list that they created had everyone of all ages dancing from start to finish. I can’t tell you the number of people who I have talked to since that have gushed about how great the band was at our wedding. To top it off, Ryan was extremely friendly, professional and so easy to work with. If we were to do it all over again, we 100% would book Closing Time.
