About

On WeddingWire since 2009

Rare Form Band is a wedding band based in Boston, MA.

The thing about Rare Form is that there are very few songs we can’t do, and there’s nothing we won’t try.

Our rhythm section is tight, the horns are crisp, and our singers wield their voices to emulate the unique styles of any songs we perform. That’s a big deal because our repertoire is so eclectic, it’s important the songs sit where they belong in terms of genre and style.

Including our two lead singers, we’re a 6-piece ensemble (piano/keyboards, guitar, bass and drums) at minimum, with the option of adding a utility man (saxophone, percussion, guitar and whatever else we give him) for a 7-piece ensemble, and a trumpet player for a total of 8 members to perform at your event. Each musician has full command over their instrument and understands how it fits for any song in our band. We’re used to how each other plays and we’re sensitive to each other’s strengths. This allows us to play any song in any style from dinner to dancing to last dancing.

We’ve been doing this a very long time (more than thirty years) and our thing is making people feel good on the most important days of their lives. Music has that power and Rare Form takes the privilege very seriously.

Whether you need music for your ceremony, cocktail hour or your main event, Rare Form will provide the highest quality performances of all your favorite songs. Just let us know what you want to hear, and we’ll take it from there.
Go ‘head…try us!

Amazingly fun band!

Rare Form is such an incredibly fun, lively band. They performed at my older sisters’ wedding and EVERYONE was on the dance floor singing, dancing, and having a blast because of them. They played songs from many different genres and when the night came to an end everyone on the dance floor was chanting for an encore!! They are the best wedding band out there! I just booked them for my upcoming wedding because that’s how much the guests and family loved them. 10/10 recommend.
