The Time Pilots were amazing. Months later we still have people telling us how much they loved the band at our wedding. Jon was responsive, reassuring, and extremely helpful. He worked with us beforehand to personalize the set list, and make sure everything went smoothly with the reception schedule. They even learned a song for us! All the musicians were very talented, and the set list was perfect. They kept the dance floor going all night! We'd absolutely recommend the Time Pilots.Sent on 01/18/2020

Time Pilots for the Win!
From reading these reviews only, I contacted Jon and booked our wedding day. The Time Pilots made our wedding day. From the moment I first reached out to Jon, he was very quick to respond via email. Up to and during the wedding Jon was organized, accommodating, and his attention to detail is on point. Our wedding ended up being held on the hottest day of the year.... As hot as it was in the barn, the Time Pilots never skipped a beat. Jon even went out of his way to work with a family member to practice with the band to perform not only the brides father daughter dance, but a surprised us all with more than just one song. I would not hesitate for any function I have in the future to give Jon a call and book him.Sent on 07/25/2019

Book this band.... now!
We are so happy to be writing this review for the Time Pilots who recently played at our September wedding in Sugarloaf! We recommend them, without hesitation, to anyone who wants their wedding to be a great time for everyone! The time pilots have excellent communication leading up to the big day, they have incredible knowledge to share about how to run the reception, they really take charge of the night so you can relax, and they rock the house!Sent on 09/29/2019
We originally called them in 2017 and Jon was super comfortable to talk to from the start. He seemed like a really outgoing fun guy, and their reviews were amazing. They had the exact type of music we were looking for to really engage every type of person at our wedding. We excitedly booked them! In the Spring of 2018 we ended up postponing our wedding due to a job change for my now husband. I was pretty worried about how the process of postponing would go with some of our vendors since we already had a decent chunk of money down. Jon was by far the most kind and understanding, and he said he'd work hard to re-book our date so that we could use our deposit for another date the next year. Within a few months, Jon emailed that he booked our old date, and that they would play for us on our new wedding date whenever we choose that with no extra fee. He seriously could not have been better about the whole situation.
In the Winter of 2018 we decided on our new date, 9/7/19, and our new location of Sugarloaf (we were previously going to do it on Mount Desert Island where we used to live). Jon hopped right back to where we left off and we chatted every now and then to continue the planning process. Jon always knew exactly what questions to ask, and he even gave us great insight on the timing of our event since one of his many talents is running the reception schedule with ease! Although we had a day of wedding coordinator through Sugarloaf, once the reception started we didn't need one since the Time Pilots truly did run the night! The band was all set up and playing cocktail music before our guests arrived at the reception, and once the bridal party arrived, Jon met us outside to get us lined up for the entrance. It was so nice not to have to tell all our friends or family what to do or when to do it. Jon handled it all and we just got to enjoy the process of our night. The entrance was understated, which was just what we asked for. As the night went on, the Time Pilots facilitated many different transitions (first dance, moving everyone to the tent for dinner, having recorded music playing in a tent for dinner, announcing the toasts and handing the mic to the various people, inviting everyone back into the lodge for cake and music, gathering everyone for our cake cutting, announcing the parent dances, and more!). Even though we had agreed on a schedule of the night months before, Jon was very flexible when I on the spot decided to delay parent dances for an hour (we were a little tired of being the center of attention and just wanted a break to let loose!). He gladly started playing the fun music and everyone was dancing and having a great time!
Once all the formalities were over, the party really began. The Time Pilots played all the songs we loved from their song list! They even let my mom and brother karaoke for many songs which was hilarious! They were interactive, always smiling, and once they got the feel for the crowd - they knew exactly what to play to get everyone on their feet! I can honestly say that the main reason I didn't talk to people on the night of our wedding is because I was on the dance floor the entire night!
Thank you Time Pilots! We were thrilled to have you as a part of our big day!
These guys put on quite a reception! I've played several ceremony/cocktail hour's before they've gone on and definitely stayed to check them out. So talented, professional, and organized. Highly recommended.
