Our guests are still raving about Search Party

Search Party was incredible!!! They had our guests up dancing and singing along the entire night! Almost a month later and our guests are still reaching out to say how much they loved our band!! Of all the positive feedback we received from our wedding, Search Party by far was the most raved about!!!
They have a fantastic and diverse playlist to begin with but they even learned the song for our first dance a few months before the wedding, which is a moment we will never forget!
Not only is the band extremely talented, but leading up to the wedding Charlie was in constant communication with us. He listened to what we wanted and had great suggestions for the floor plan, timeline and playlist to make sure we had a night we will never forget! Hiring Search Party was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!!

Unbelievable!!!

Search Party blew us and our wedding guests away with their incredible vocalists, musicians, and energy. They had people dancing during dinner! From the get go, Charlie was great to communicate with. He was attentive, understanding, learned our first dance song, and overall the kindest person. Guests still cannot stop raving about this band!! Amazing

Best part of our wedding and great to work with

Search Party Boston helped make our wedding the best day of our lives, from start to finish. Charlie worked closely with my now husband on musical collaboration, allowing the groom, groomsmen, and bridesmaids to be involved in various songs and elements through the ceremony and reception. The band brought incredible energy and excitement, getting my 91 year old grandfather up on the dance floor for much of the night (and nearly all of our guests dancing!) We looked at a lot of bands and were also really happy with Search Party's song list, as well as their ability to play special songs for us (our first dance song as well as father/daughter dance were somewhat obscure song choices). Cannot say enough great things about the band, you won't regret choosing them!
