Look no further
From the moment we contacted Bearfight I knew that they were going to be something special. The thoughtful, responsive and kind gestures made by the group let me know they were our pick. Chris answered many of my questions throughout the year, no matter how small and made many suggestions of vendors and was always one text away. The week of our wedding we had a call to go over all the last details which made us feel at ease as what usually would be a stressful time. The day of the wedding I knew everything would be under control. The ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner music was perfect. Now onto the main event.. EPIC dance party. We’ve never seen so many people on a dance floor for so long at a wedding!! The guests literally didn’t want to leave as each song was just as good As the last. Many guests and even staff say it’s the best band they have ever seen and we couldn’t agree more!!! We are so grateful for them making our wedding day so fun and feel like they are more friends of ours than a vendor. 🐻Sent on 11/27/2019
BearFight's reply:Thanks for the incredible review Shannon, we had such a blast celebrating with you all! Best dance floor we had all year :)

Best. Band. Ever. Seriously, stop looking for others now and just book them.
To say BearFight made the party that was our wedding is a wild understatement - they made it everything we hoped it would be and so much more! BF brought... the... house... down. We honestly lost count of the number of people who came up to us and said, "this band ::expletive followed by another expletive followed by at least one more expletive:: rocks," asked, "where the hell did you find these guys?" or commented that they felt like they were at a concert. Almost every memory we have talked about since our best night ever has involved BearFight rocking out. We cannot wait to go to one of their shows in Boston! THANK YOU 🐻👊!Sent on 10/17/2019

THE BEST! Look no further!
When we started dating in 2013 we knew we had to have Bear Fight play at our wedding!!! Here we are in 2019 and they absolutely continue to blow us away! Chris, Paul, Alex and the entire crew were professional, fun and were the highlight of our wedding! To quote one of our guests, “We didn’t even want to go pee we were having too much fun!!!!” Also, “My Fitbit clocked an entire 2 hours straight of dancing!”
Thank you guys for crushing it! #teambearfight 🐻 👊Sent on 09/26/2019

The BEST part of our wedding!!
BearFight absolutely MADE our wedding! I think I only left the dance floor once, in protest, to go to the bathroom. My bridesmaid strained her calf from dancing then told me, "If I broke my leg dancing to BearFight, it still would have been worth it!" They got old relatives of mine on the dance floor who we've seriously never seen dance before! We had the time of our lives dancing and singing on stage with these guys.Sent on 08/25/2019
Aside from just an exceptional reception performance, Chris and the crew are just so easy to work with. We had BearFight play an acoustic duo for our ceremony on site. I had picked 3 somewhat obscure songs that they learned, no questions asked. It was so beautiful and special to have them perform live as I walked down the aisle. They also played at our cocktail hour as well. We've gotten SO many compliments about the music. As one friend put it "there are wedding bands -- and then there is BearFight. They were just on a whole different level!" They took care of everything too: DJ to emcee the reception, microphones, speakers, lighting. Not having to worry about any of this stuff was a huge load lifted off of us from a planning perspective.
We can't thank you enough! Can we do it all again next week!?!?

They had everyone on the dance floor. Every song they played was a hit. They were super easy to work with and so friendly.Sent on 09/15/2019

Where to even start… BOOK THIS BAND ASAP. Trust me when I say, you DO NOT want to miss out on having Bearfight play at your wedding. Look no further. Bearfight IS IT. They are the MOST EPIC wedding band I have or WILL EVER see, and I’m beyond thankful I found them. I came across them because I was telling my MOH that I didn’t want a traditional (and in my opinion, overpriced, overrated) wedding band. I wanted a really awesome rock band that could play a range of music (80s, 90s, 2000s, rock, pop, country, etc.). One that could read and engage the crowd, and that would have everyone on the dancefloor. Enter, Bearfight. My MOH had seen then out in bars in Boston and dubbed them her favorite band she’s seen live. So fast forward a bit and I hired them, and well let’s just say it was the easiest and best decision I made during our planning process. I was on stage 4x during our wedding. Several other people ended up on stage as well. Aunts and those friends that *never* dance at weddings, were dragging their dates onto the dance floor. Legitimately, the only downside to how awesome they are was that there was no time to go to the bathroom. There were no “bad” songs or moments you felt like you could slip away and wouldn’t miss anything. EVERY person that talked to us about our wedding afterward mentioned how incredible the band was. Last but not least, Chris, the band manager, is an awesome guy – super professional and punctual while also easy going and accommodating. They also were extremely reasonably priced considering we traveled them from Boston to NY. Cheaper than a lot of the bands we looked at, and 10x better. Do not miss out – BOOK BEARFIGHT NOW.Sent on 03/31/2019

They were by far the easiest to deal with. They’re flat rate to cover everything is rare in the wedding world where everyone wants to nickel and dime you. Beyond that they brought the energy and we had a 4 hour dance party.Sent on 10/11/2018

BearFight does it all. Music at my wedding was a top priority and BearFight blew away my expectations. From being tremendously easy to work with, having timing down flawlessly, and most importantly playing so well everyone from every age group at my wedding was dancing and rocking out all night long; I couldn't recommend them enough. The DJ/Band combo is an awesome way to dance the night away and not too many bands would pull your violin playing cousin up on stage to perform a couple songs. They are the best of the best.Sent on 10/11/2018

BearFight, the band that WILL make you have the BEST. WEDDING. EVER!
"I NEVER dance at weddings and this band had me up on the dance floor the ENTIRE reception from their first song to the last of the night...WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?!?!" That is a direct quote from one of my wife's older aunts who was pleasantly surprised when the 'rock band that does weddings' that we hired got the dance party started at our wedding in Cape Cod this past August.
My wife and I are both BIG music enthusiasts with a broad range of artists we like and so when we got engaged in April of 2017 we knew we wanted the focal point of our wedding to be the music and dancing. Here were our criteria: We definitely wanted a band, but we also wanted some original tracks to be played so the duality of having DJ would be helpful. My wife is a drummer and I play bass/guitar so we also wanted a band that would be open to the idea of us performing with them at the wedding. On top of that, we also wanted a band that might be open to learning more than 1 or 2 new songs for our wedding which is also a bit of a tall order.
At the beginning of the summer in 2017, I had seen a video of a college friend's wedding where she, the bride, was singing with this band called "BearFight" and just absolutely killing it. The energy, the smiles, the sound, the guests, everything was EXACTLY what everyone hopes their wedding to be like and I knew that we needed to get in touch with these guys. Shortly after seeing the video, my wife and I had a phone call with Chris, the lead singer/manager, and he was one of the nicest, most accommodating people I've ever spoken to. He laid out exactly what BearFight could offer and it was way more than anything we heard or expected to hear from any other band. He told us they would provide a full band with DJ combo, could get a female vocalist added on per my wife's request, he encouraged us to perform with the band when we told him we also played instruments and told us BearFight could likely learn a few new songs at our request.
Upon hearing this we were basically sold and since we live in the Boston area, Chris invited us to check out BearFight at some of their local shows in the area open to the public. We saw BearFight twice in the summer of 2017, hired them in August 2017 for our wedding that would be a year later and ended up seeing BearFight countless times in the full year of our engagement along with getting to know the members really well.
When our wedding finally came around in August 2018 they ABSOLUTELY CRUSHED IT! They learned 7 new songs just for our wedding at our request and their DJ/MC was brilliant with the wedding party introductions and the timing of songs in between band sets. On top of all that, my wife and I performed with the band together and separately for 5 songs and even had some last minute requests from our friends asking if they could play guitar or bass for a certain song, which the guys in BearFight welcomed and offered their instruments without hesitation.
Our wedding of 259 attendees had easily 220+ of the people on the dance floor during the reception. My 71-year-old father kept saying, "BEST. WEDDING. BAND. EVER!" after the wedding after being a bit skeptical about having a "rock band" as our wedding band, but BearFight really knows how to throw a party by reading their audience and their environment. They are extremely humble guys and will put you, your family, and your friends in the spotlight for your special day before themselves. They don't come off like a band that was hired to perform at a wedding, they carry a presence as "the most fun guests at a wedding that got everyone dancing...they just happened to also play instruments" as one of my groomsmen said.
Ultimately, if you want a band that can do literally ANYTHING and does it all well for your special day that also happy to be just good people don't think, don't hesitate, don't wait. Hire BearFight and you're not just getting an unforgettable wedding, but you'll have acquired some unforgettable friends for life as well.Sent on 10/30/2018

Dare I say, the best wedding band OF ALL TIME?! Bearfight was amazing. I'm still getting rave reviews from my guests about the band. The variety and genres of music were on point. Chris and the rest of the guys are so great to work to with and really accommodating. I would highly recommend Bearfight to all future brides and grooms!Sent on 09/06/2018

Bearfight had all my wedding guests dancing, best wedding band ever! Band's bass guitar broke right before the reception and had a backup immediately. They were very accommodating to my littlest guests, giving them tambourines and drum sticks. Johnny even let her hit the cymbals here and there! H had such an amazing time, she slept with the band's business card. Kev let my new brother-in-law play and it was all so amazing. My husband's step-father had passed 3 weeks before our wedding. Kev had the band learn a little sing-along-tribute to him and rocked it with his favorite song. You can't go wrong booking them! DJ Alex was great as well and a nice added bonus; he played great cocktail hour music and got the crowd going while the band was on break. There were so many Bearfight moments that we loved; we were on the floor dancing so much we didn't even get a chance to grab a picture with the guys. That was my only regret... that and our wedding should have just been 8 hours of music and dancing :-DSent on 08/06/2018
Ryan · Married on 07/07/2018
Very professional while being amazing and fun. The night flew by because they were so good and people never stopped dancing! I never dreamed that a wedding could be that much fun and it was mostly because of the band and DJ. From the ceremony music and right though dinner and then finally once the band plugs in, it truly makes the day even more special than it already is.Sent on 07/22/2018

In short, book BearFight!!! I am the chair of a formal charity event and BearFight played for us in May 2018. Chris and team were so easy to work with and absolutely made this year the best yet. Guests have not stopped talking about how amazing they were. People have told me they want to book them for their weddings. This event is different than the weddings they're used to playing and they rolled with the punches and even incorporated a donation based song request system and donated everything to our cause! I don't have enough good things to say about them and have already put a hold on them for next year's event. Seriously, if you're lucky enough that BearFight is available for your date, book them!!!Sent on 05/28/2018
Christopher · Married on 04/28/2018
On a video from the our wedding that the band posted on their social media they labeled it with the quote of "We aren't a wedding band, we're a rock band that does weddings." I don't think any truer words have ever been spoken. We knew how great they were going in and trusted them to help make our wedding vision come true. They somehow exceeded every single expectation. Both in terms of us but more importantly every single review from our guests If you're looking for a kickass band that plays wedding, your search can end here.Sent on 05/29/2018

We got engaged in Cuba and sent an email to Bearfight before we even got off the plane. A live band was important to my husband and we realized that anyone we booked we would just compare to Bearfight. The guys are so great to work with and our wedding was just amazing because of them. We have lost track of how many times our friends and family told us how awesome they were and even had an uncle say to us the next day, "you know, I've been to a lot of weddings and this was the best one I've ever been to!"Sent on 04/18/2018
From start to finish Chris and his team were so helpful and organized. They made the whole process smooth and easy. Chris even helped us to find other vendors when we needed ideas. The DJ/band combination was awesome and the dance floor was packed all night long. We couldn't have asked for a better band for our day!
Emerald · Married on 10/21/2017
After I was hired as the day of coordinator for Chris and Ashley’s Wedding I quickly reached out to all of the vendors they had booked to introduce myself. Chris and Alex from Bear Fight were quick to respond and extremely professional. To no surprise when I met them and the rest of their crew the day of the LeRoy/Aiken Wedding they were extremely friendly, easy to work with and very cooperative with all the changes we made throughout the day. All in all working with Bear Fight was a blast! I would HIGHLY recommend them to any couple looking for a Wedding Band!Sent on 10/29/2017

Absolutely the BEST wedding band and DJ out there!!! Honestly, our family and friends can not stop talking about how awesome our reception was and it's because they kept the party going all night long with a fun mix of music!!!Sent on 07/19/2017
I am so happy that they were highly recommended to us by a friend who scoured the country for her wedding band and found them! After seeing all of their reviews and performances, we knew we had to have them and booked them immediately (best thing we ever did)! Since the beginning of our wedding planning, we have felt well taken care of and they truly listened to every single request (BIG and SMALL)! The highlight was when I requested they play 'Love Shack,' as that is my power karaoke jam. Not only did they learn the song for me, but invited me up on stage so I could rock out at my own wedding!!! BEST DAY EVER and it's all due to Bearfight!!! We can not thank them enough!!!!!

If you're looking for a wedding band (or for any event) - look no further!! BearFight totally rocked our wedding from cocktail hour through the last minutes we were allowed in the venue. I would hire them allover again in a heartbeat.Sent on 10/19/2017
Their professionalism, energy and talent totally made the day so much fun and attributed to everyone saying that it was hands down one of the most fun weddings they've ever attended. We now have people who attended our wedding getting engaged and asking for their information.
One more important note - they don't play any songs that would make you want to take a dance break, so strap on your sneakers and get ready to dance ALL NIGHT LONG.
Andrew · Married on 05/06/2017
We could not have been any more pleased with Bearfight. From the initial contract to the day of they were professional, knowledgeable and made sure we having fun the entire time. They have great experience and gave great advice while allowing us to individualize every aspect of our day. I can't think of a single thing more we could have asked for!Sent on 07/17/2017
