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 311, O.A.R., Paramore, Noah Kahan, 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 6-pieces to 10-pieces.
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.
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.
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.

Band that crushes it!
YLATT did our wedding this past weekend and they knocked it out of the park. We have seen them before and we knew that they were going to be awesome and boy did they not disappoint. They played all of the songs that we requested which was great, but the way that they engage with the guests really got things going and made it an incredible night. If you want to hire a band to do your wedding/event, you should hire YLATT. It will be the best decision that you make!Sent on 05/17/2019

Highlight of our wedding
When you’re looking online for band reviews, you rarely will find a band with a bad review and rather it’s more trying to find a band to match your personal style and vision. I can assure you, no matter the style and vision you have in mind for your special day (or any event), working with Andy, YLATT can pull it off.Sent on 08/11/2019
We did our due diligence and went to see around 5 or 6 live bands including YLATT at CAPO in Southie where they pulled off getting the young crowd out on the dance floor, the entire time they where playing. What we saw was just one of their many different configurations, so we worked with Andy to find the best fit for our style and vision. After seeing them at CAPO, we wondered if they were the right band for our black tie optional wedding with a mix of both 30-somethings and 50’s + – but they DEFINITELY were. They were polished, gorgeous, and just cool. Andy is an absolute pleasure to work with and will be your POC from the initial contact to the wedding day, and EVERYTHING in between. As Andy is a member of the band, you aren’t passed off from the sales rep to the coordinator without ever having contact with the band and he will work with you to make the pricing work for both you and the band, set the style and accommodate with the band formulation to suit your needs. This is truly a one stop shop for all your event needs. YLATT provided our ceremony (guitarist), cocktail hour (two guitarists), dinner set (full 10-piece band) and an extremely versatile dancing set (full band). From the first dance to the final song with rock classics, to hip hop (classics and new age), to pop and EVERYTHING in between, they kept our guests on the dance floor all night and were beyond amazing. The #1 compliment we receive from our guests is how amazing the band was. I can’t express enough that working with one person from the beginning to end is the ONLY way to go and that Andy and YLATT is the very best band you could have for your special event.

Hire Young Love & The Thrills immediately!!! Our wedding would not have been the same without them! They have everyone dancing the entire night - even people who are not the dancing type were tearing up the dance floor. From the time they took the stage during dinner, people couldn't help but start dancing. They are such phenomenally talented musicians with such amazing range and variation in their repertoire. People are still raving to me about how amazing Young Love & the Thrills were at our wedding and how much fun they had because of them. Honestly, hands down one of the best decisions we made was to hire them as our band. Thank you YLATT for making our wedding unforgettable and so much fun!!Sent on 07/25/2019
