About

Brides and Grooms of New England! Are you ready to make your dream wedding a reality? Do you want a party your guests will rave about for years to come? Closing Time is ready to make that happen with legendary live music & DJ services for your ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing.

Closing Time offers three high-energy wedding bands: Closing Time (Boston), Closing Time (New England), and Closing Time (Northeast). Each band is flexible in size, ranging from 5 to 9 musicians. Our popular 9-piece option features: male and female lead vocals, guitar, keyboard, bass, drums and a 3-piece horn section (tenor sax, trumpet and trombone). All three groups are overseen by Band Manager Ryan Engebretson and our incredible team at Murray Hill Talent.

Our goal is to keep you and your guests dancing and singing along all night. Every couple is encouraged to help shape the set list by requesting songs that you want to hear and supplying a do-not play list. Each band member is a seasoned, professional musician, so if there is a song that you would like to hear on your wedding day that is not currently a part of our song list, we would be happy to learn it for you.

Our bands perform regularly at wedding venues across Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and New York. On top of bringing the party to 40+ weddings per year, each band performs weekly to capacity crowds at clubs, colleges, casinos, private events, and corporate functions. Every show is an unforgettable night of entertainment, featuring the greatest hit songs of yesterday and today.

Ceremony: Closing Time offers three live music packages for the ceremony: instrumental acoustic guitar, instrumental piano, or instrumental acoustic guitar & piano duo.

Dancing: This is where the party REALLY gets started! Closing Time provides you with upbeat and diverse dance sets, including hit songs from the past 60 years that have proven to be huge “dance floor fillers” and “crowd pleasers”.

    Amazing!

    Closing Time is the perfect band for your wedding or event. They stepped in for us just months before our wedding after our original band cancelled and I am honestly glad they did because Closing Time absolutely ROCKED it! From the start they were professional and so easy to work with. They kept the night moving and everyone on the dance floor. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!

    A Must Have On Your Big Day

    Closing Time is a must have at your wedding!! When we started planning our big day having a band was at the top of our list. We are so glad we had Closing Time as our band for our wedding! They were absolutely amazing! Ryan was professional and great to work with leading up to the big day and the rest of the band members were great on the day as well!

    Over two months have past since our big day and our guests are still mentioning how great the band was!

    We had Ryan as the guitarist for cocktail hour which we got raving reviews from the guests on how great the music at cocktail hour was and then the full band for the reception! The dance floor was full the entire night! The set list was unreal and there was songs for all guests to enjoy!

    We want to have a party again just so we can have Closing Time back to preform, they are that good! If you are thinking of a band for your big day, look no further! Book Closing Time, you will not regret it!
