Book Closing Time ASAP!
Oh my goodness, I don't even know where to begin except to say - BOOK CLOSING TIME NOW! Ryan and the rest of the band members were without a doubt, the best part of our wedding. As a bride and groom who were absolutely set on booking a DJ, we opted to check out some bands at the request of our family members. Needless to say, we could not have been happier with Closing Time. Not only are they amazing musically, they're stellar performers - we got our wedding pictures back and the dance floor was absolutely packed the entire time with every age range of guest - all thanks to Closing Time. As a bride and groom who were anxious about logistics leading up to the wedding day, Ryan was always there to help. His calm demeanor and ability to make light of any situation was such a comfort to us. Additionally, they're simply just great people. My father-in-law was ill during our reception and needed to go rest, meaning we had to do a quick shift in the schedule and move up some key events. Ryan and the rest of the band understood without hesitation and even interrupted their break for dinner to make sure my father-in-law could see the Mother/Son and Father/Daughter dances before he needed to rest. It was so appreciated. Again, we absolutely cannot speak more highly of them. Closing Time was the highlight of our wedding without a doubt. THANK YOU so much Closing Time!Sent on 05/12/2020

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 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.Sent on 02/09/2020
