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

This band is a wedding necessity.
There is no wedding party like a wedding party featuring Young Love and the Thrills. I proposed to my wife on a Friday and was emailing this band 24 hours later because I wanted to secure them for our wedding, which didn’t even have a date yet. Before all this, I had a preconceived notion that a wedding band was a group of old people playing songs like We Are Family to a lackluster crowd, but then I saw and heard YLATT play for the first time. They’re not just a wedding band, they’re an experience – a live show where the entertainers are close enough to walk out into the crowd and join the audience. Our goal when wedding planning was to have the most people on the dance floor for as long as possible. Now that the day has passed, we’re confident we achieved that goal. Our wedding would not have been half as fun without this band. Booking Young Love and the Thrills is a necessity.Sent on 07/10/2019

Incredible, funky, spellbinding showmen!
Young Love and The Thrills are absolutely incredible! We opted for the acoustic set during our ceremony, the jazz trio during cocktail hour, and the full band for the reception. Every bit of their performance was amazing. Not only are they all talented musicians, but they put on a spectacular show. The dinner selection set the perfect mood, and once the dancing started the dance floor wasn't empty for a single moment. Their transitions between songs were flawless and it was almost spellbinding the way they kept people on the dance floor. If I could get married and hire them again - I would do it in a heartbeat. *Every* single person at the wedding commented on how great the band was. Thank you for helping make our wedding the best day of our lives!Sent on 06/18/2019
