About

Comprised of some of the most experienced and highly trained professional musicians in all of New England, Young Love provides a huge and unique sound and show. Our members have collectively toured around the world, playing venues as small as intimate dinner clubs and as large a 20,000 seat arenas. Our seasoned yet young line-up of singers and multi-instrumentalists understand the nuance of each crowd and is finely attuned to catering to the energy and the vibe of the specific audience, no matter the size. Over the years we have collectively shared the stage with likes of Noah Kahan, 311, O.A.R., Paramore, Arturo Sandoval, Lettuce, Soulive, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Jack’s Mannequin, Jurassic-5, and the late, great James Brown (just to name a few)!!!

We are a consistent fulltime line-up, ranging in size from 8-pieces to 14-pieces.

Music:

We pride ourselves on the most unique and personalized repertoire on the market! Our basic sentiment: if everyone (bands and DJs) are playing Billie Jean, let’s just play an equally awesome but not burnt-out MJ song! That applies to so many artists that are covered by every band and DJ in America, but why? We want to know when you graduated high school and college and pull material from the years that are truly sentimental. Let us introduce you to something we call “THE SENTIMENTAL YEARS.” These years are your late grade school to end of college days, filled with music that has loads of memories and feelings attached to each song from that personal era. Whether it be a first kiss, the first tune on a high school crush mix tape, a long summer break, or the first time you two met, there’s always a song attached to those moments; we pool from those years to create a set list full of crowd freak-out moments! There is nothing like that reaction when half your crowd yells, “Oh my god!” and realizes they still remember every word to a song they didn’t remember existed.

Business Model:

Many bands are a rotating crew, swapping out singers and instrumentalists per gig. We are consistent fulltime, regularly rehearsed line-up who plays with the intimacy of a touring band because it’s always the same personnel for a full season. We are excited to embark on our fourth season with the exact same line-up!

Young Love has also been peer-verified by Verified Boston Wedding Bands as a band using a dedicated musician lineup.

Mission:

We aim to make each show a true experience and to stay true to the passion that got us into this in the first place. We can promise the most energetic show, the most unique repertoire, the most skilled musicians, and a process so organized you'd think you were working with a wedding planner.

YLATT knows how to keep the party dancing! A MUST hire!

Just WOW! Young Love & The Thrills is more incredible than any of your expectations or imagination. This band is wildly talented and really knows how to get the party started! We asked for upbeat music that would keep our guests dancing all night, and man did they deliver. They were absolutely fantastic to work with from start to finish. Working through the music for the prelude, ceremony, cocktail hour and reception was an absolute breeze. Our dance floor was packed from the first song to the last - even during the break! Young Love & The Thrills was also incredibly thoughtful - changing the lyrics of “Jessie’s Girl” to “Kevin’s Girl”. It was an awesome surprise for us and our guests to dance and sing to! We can’t recommend this band enough. You must hire YLATT! It’s the best decision you’ll make for your wedding!

Best ever!

Seriously the MOST fun and amazing band EVER! If it is any indication of how great, let's just say I lost my voice from scream singing all night from when we first saw them play in Southie! On our wedding day, danced and sang even harder all night long and people are still talking about how awesome they were! Working with Andy was absolutely seamless and he made sure everything was exactly how we wanted and even more! We could not have had our perfect day without Young Love and The Thrills! They came highly recommended from our trusted wedding planner, and she could not have been more right! BEST. BAND. EVER!!!!

Absolutely Blown Away!!

YLATT were absolutely incredible! We, and our guests, were completely blown away. From providing the music at the ceremony, to ending our night with the most fun dance party, it was perfect from start to finish. We had people all night asking for their information so they could book them for a future event. We can't thank them enough for keeping the dance floor FULL all night!! Would recommend them a million times again and again!!
