About CLOSING TIME

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.

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.

WEDDING SERVICES OFFERED

Ceremony: Closing Time offers three live music packages for the ceremony: instrumental acoustic guitar, instrumental piano, or instrumental acoustic guitar & piano duo. 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: We offer nine live music packages for the cocktail hour: instrumental acoustic guitar, acoustic guitar with vocals, instrumental piano, two acoustic guitars with vocals duo, acoustic guitar with vocals and percussion duo, instrumental acoustic guitar and piano duo, instrumental saxophone and piano jazz duo, or an instrumental saxophone, piano and drums jazz trio. In addition, the band is also available to provide DJ services.

Dinner: The full band performs a fun and relaxing selection of music at a low volume while you and your guests enjoy your meals, ranging from Classic Hits by Frank Sinatra, Elton John and Van Morrison to Current Hits by Alicia Keys, Chris Stapleton and Ed Sheeran.

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”. Our set list includes Current Hits by Lizzo, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars, ‘80s & ‘90s Hits by Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Montell Jordan and Whitney Houston, Classic Hits by Stevie Wonder, Jackson 5, Aretha Franklin and Earth, Wind & Fire and the list goes on. We customize our playlist to fit your musical preferences! MC and DJ services are provided throughout your reception at no additional charge as well.

    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!!

    Top notch!

    Closing time did an amazing job!! Of all my vendors, the band was the easiest to work. Ryan was super responsive and helpful when I had questions ranging from Covid options and music choices. They have a very broad range of songs in their set list, and I even threw in a few not on their list and they accommodated my requests without any problem!

    Bands in general are more pricey than a DJ but you can't go wrong with closing time. They set up the perfect set list of classics jams, avoiding anything cheesy. We added an acoustic guitar for the ceremony processional and cocktail hour and I'm so glad we did. When it came time for the processional it was amazing to have someone there playing live music to help adjust the pace or extend a song when there were delays.

    Throughout all our planning, we were nervous about having a band with COVID precautions and they ended up really making the night fun and easy.

    Thank you closing time!!
