Without this band our wedding day would not have been the same!
Anyone who has planned a wedding before will tell you that it’s a lot of work. If they’re lucky, they can also attest to it being a lot of fun at times too. Thankfully, we are one of those lucky couples that can make that claim and we owe a lot of that to our brilliant band: Clockwork Boston. This review will be lengthy, but we make no apologies for it because whatever time and effort we put into this review will pale in comparison to what they did for us and they deserve their due. So, buckle up, here we go.
Decisions must be made on countless items when planning a wedding and often the couple may not always agree. They may also have varying levels of caring about certain matters that require decisions (napkins anyone?). For us, the music wasn’t one of those matters. We both felt strongly, and we were both in agreement: we wanted a band and not just any band would do. Thus, our search began. We spent hours listening to clips online, trying to remember which weddings we attended had good bands, who had we seen locally at a bar or restaurant, but none stood out. None had left a lasting impression that would be suitable enough for our big day. It wasn’t until we were talking with a friend who was raving about the band at her sister’s wedding that we were turned onto Clockwork. So, we logged onto their website and found a few clips and they sounded pretty good, but we still wondered how it would sound live. A lot of these clips you’ll hear of bands online are produced and edited to the nth degree and it can be deceiving as to how it sounds live. We contacted the band to inquire and check availability and Ron encouraged us to come check them out. We looked up where Clockwork would be playing next and marked our calendar. Well that night came, and we went to go see the band and the rest was history. We didn’t even make it through the first song before we both looked at each other and we just knew: this was it; this was our wedding band; they just didn’t know it yet. They nailed every song, one after another and the energy they put into their set permeated the room. Referring back to our earlier comments about wedding planning being fun… well we booked Clockwork for our wedding and still went to go see them two more times because we just could not get enough. Each and every member of this band brings it every time and they’re all so phenomenally talented.
Ron was so easy to work with and beyond accommodating that he gave us a real sense of comfort and trust. He allowed us to come up with ideas for the way we envisioned the wedding from ceremony to introductions to the reception and everything in between. Essentially, it was “tell me what you’re thinking, and we’ll make it happen.” That right there says it all about Ron and Clockwork. They’re a supremely talented group but they don’t set out to make it about themselves, they really are in it for you and want to make your event special. That being said, they’re also extremely confident in their abilities and know that if you are willing to defer to them on set list, arrangements, etc. that they will pack that dance floor like it’s nobody’s business and everyone will have a great time. Needless to say, Clockwork did not disappoint. In fact, they blew our expectations out of the water! True to their word, the dance floor was packed from the jump to the very last song (you’ll be surprised at who you see out there – even people who normally don’t leave their seats). We lost track of how many people made comments, asked where we found them, or approached the band on their own. Clockwork doesn’t appeal to just a certain age or demo either. This band will grab you no matter where you fall in line: whether you are young or old, reserved or outgoing, love to dance or you’re just a toe-tapper and everyone else in between. The versatility of this band and these vocalists is beyond comprehension. It does not matter what you’re looking for, trust us – they have it.
As we’ve stated, the talent and versatility of each musician and singer in this group is truly remarkable but we’d be remised if we did not single out Moussa. However you choose to define the ‘it factor’ he has IT, and he has it in spades! What an absolute showman he is and the passion and energy that he brings to the performance is infectious. He was everywhere too; we’d even be willing to bet that he interacted with more guests at the wedding than we did! You know that age old proverb “Do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life” well we’re just going to assume that Moussa is the personification of that proverb. It never seemed like he was ‘working’ but rather having a good time and making sure we all did as well. That same mindset really goes for all of Clockwork as they undoubtedly brought the house down. This group is so inclusive that it makes it next to impossible for anyone not to enjoy themselves. Beyond that, an added bonus has been that most of our guests were moved enough to capture their own recordings so we get to relive the moments over and over again as we all share videos with one another! A month later, and we still don’t go a day without someone talking about that night and how incredible the music was. We planned a night out to go see Clockwork perform again, and the number of people wanting to join us grows bigger by the day! Surely, we’re echoing the sentiments of everyone who has hired Clockwork before us, but booking them was one of the best decisions we ever made. If you have the opportunity to book Clockwork for your wedding or any other event you really shouldn’t hesitate. Our wedding turned out better than we ever could have hoped for and we will forever be grateful that Clockwork provided the soundtrack to the first day of the rest of our lives together!Sent on 03/23/2020

The BEST band
We booked Clockwork with zero hesitation after seeing them and enjoying their performance at my brother’s wedding. They are phenomenal singers, musicians, and performers. Ron is great to work with, highly responsive and organized, I couldn’t have been more happy knowing he and the band would follow through with amazing entertainment. They had the whole wedding dancing and enjoying themselves the entire night! Truly, everyone was on their feet and having an absolute blast. We were complimented all night long and well into the following weeks by EVERYONE for ‘having such an amazing wedding band.’ It was the best night with the best band. I highly recommend Clockwork, many, many times over.Sent on 03/30/2020

Clockwork was amazing and one of the highlights of our wedding! They had everyone dancing from start to finish. I think everyone we've talked to after the wedding commented on how great the band was and it was so fun having everyone out on the dance floor. Everyone associated with Clockwork was easy to work with and super responsive. We would 1000% recommend them to anyone getting married!Sent on 02/05/2020

Blown Away by Clockwork New England
Clockwork New England was everything we could have dreamed of and more. We are PASSIONATE about music, dance floors and having fun, and Clockwork New England knows how to deliver it all. We knew from the beginning that we wanted every guest to walk away from the weekend saying, "Best wedding ever." They granted our wish. Every song was played and sung with perfection. They even learned our first dance song just for us. They played everything from hip-hop, pop, jazz to oldies, disco and salsa. Not only are they indescribably talented, they are responsive, efficient and easy to work alongside. If you are looking for a wedding band, stop looking- they are it.
Tony and I LOVE you and cannot wait to hire you in the future! Thanks to you, our Vermont winter wedding dreams came true.Sent on 12/09/2019

Exceeded expectations - 11/10!!!
All I can say is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Totally exceeded my expectations and literally EVERYONE at the wedding said it was the best band they've ever heard! Everyone was asking who they were - they truly made the entire wedding! It was such a fun atmosphere even before the dance floor opened and then it absolutely blew up once dinner was over. Even weeks after, people are still commenting on how great and fun the band was, I would recommend them 11/10 to anyone!! Thank you so much for making my entire wedding so magical and fun!!Sent on 12/16/2019

Clockwork did not disappoint!
Our daughter chose the date 11/22/19 for her wedding based on Clockwork New England’s availability, so we were expecting them to be great. They exceeded all of our expectations. Our guests ranged from 20's to 70's and all enjoyed Clockwork New England. They did a great job with transitioning to a break, so the guests didn't immediately notice they had stopped playing, They felt organized yet flexible and spontaneous. Admittedly, we had a fantastic group of guests, but Clockwork New England contributed largely to the success of the evening!Sent on 11/25/2019

The perfect wedding band!
We are so grateful for Clockwork New England! They were amazing, and just the vibe we wanted for our wedding. I had heard the band years ago, and when it was time to plan our wedding, they are the first vendor I reached out to because I knew they would make our day memorable. The dance floor was packed all night, and we have heard from so many guests about how awesome they were. We highly highly recommended them! Thank you, Clockwork!!Sent on 01/01/2020

This band is the BEST!
Clockwork was the highlight of our reception at our wedding! Our families are no strangers to the dance floor, and even during the starter courses- they were already out there with the band getting the party going! They are all so easy to work with and their talent speaks for themselves. We would 100% recommend to anyone getting married!Sent on 11/22/2019

Picking this band was the absolute best decision we made for our wedding. I felt like I was at a celebrity concert and I was the VIP guest. Of all the things we did, we have received the most positive feedback about the band. Everyone’s jaw truly hit the floor when they started. Words could never describe how amazing they are and I am not exaggerating - DO NOT LOOK ELSEWHERE! THIS IS WHO YOU WANT!Sent on 11/04/2019

The band your wedding dance floor needs!!
We just used Clockwork New England for our wedding on Oct. 19th. I can't say enough good things about this group!! They were easy to book, their questionnaire walked through everything we wanted them to know. A week before the wedding we had a 1:1 call with the MC who would be on site to ensure that he was fully aware of everything we wanted and was so friendly and professional and willing to answer all our questions. On our wedding day they touched based with the wedding party right before it all began which we really appreciated too and it made sure everyone was on the same page prior to the reception. Then the reception began!! The band was SO amazing that the entire room was dancing in between the salad and entree course!! The talent was simply amazing - vocals and instruments were spot on for every song - they kept the energy up in the room and perfectly balanced their set list. Even when they took a break they ensured that a playlist was ready so that the energy on the dance floor didn't die. Do not look any further - this is the band that you want playing at your wedding!! Throughout the night and in the weeks following we can't even count how many compliments we received about Clockwork New England - they were amazing!Sent on 11/07/2019

Everything we hoped for
We cannot say enough good things about Clockwork! The band was so interactive - both singers and the sax player came onto the floor at different times, and the band even called the groom and groomsmen up to perform a song with them! Every single guest that I have spoken has commented on how much they loved their sound and energy. The dance floor at our wedding was packed throughout the entire night and Ron was a pleasure to work with while organizing details prior to the wedding. I would highly recommend Clockwork to any couple getting married!Sent on 12/18/2019

The BEST wedding band!
We had the absolute best time at our wedding thanks to Clockwork Boston. They had everyone on the dance floor before dinner was even served!! They kept the crowd dancing and involved the ENTIRE night, as well as taking all of our requests in stride. They were, by far, the most exciting and entertaining part of the wedding and are so talented. Weeks later and we STILL have people talking about the band and how great they were. Clockwork was so easy to work with and are true professionals. We cannot recommend them enough and hiring them for our wedding was the best decision we could have made!Sent on 10/29/2019

Clockwork played at my wedding on October 5th 2019... one word: TALENTED!! Everyone came up to me asking me how I found them! My husband was nervous at first and he was the one that didn’t get off the dance floor! Everyone was on the dance floor!! My husband and I are planning a night to go see them perform in Mass.

Clockwork Boston was one of the first vendors we chose and thank goodness we did!! They kept the party going from cocktail hour through the last song. Their energy (standing & singing on chairs!) truly made our wedding a stand-out party. We are still getting comments weeks later about how amazing the band was. Highly recommend Clockwork Boston - you won’t be disappointed!!Sent on 10/16/2019

Went with our gut and so happy with our decision to hire clockwork!
I am the type of person who could have spent MONTHS trying to decide on a wedding band-- music sets the entire tone for your wedding!! Luckily, we went with our gut and hired Clockwork Boston-- BEST DECISION EVER!Sent on 10/23/2019
Clockwork Boston was the first major decision that we made after picking our venue and nearly 20 months before our wedding. After seeing a couple of bands perform (including "the usuals" that come up in an internet search) we quickly came to the conclusion that we felt what we were seeing up on stage with other bands was not necessarily what we would get. It was very important to us that I knew who my vocalist would be and other bands do NOT guarantee that (or make that clear!). This made all of the difference to us.
We are from NYC and were getting married hours away in CT, so it was difficult for us to see bands from MA/CT perform in person. This normally would have made the decision much more difficult for us, but deciding on Clockwork Boston was a PIECE OF CAKE. After watching videos and reading reviews, we had our first call with Ron and the decision was made. Ron is the best-- makes you feel important and that you have nothing to worry about for your big day. Most importantly, with Clockwork Boston, WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET! You will NOT be disappointed.
My friends and family could not believe how great Clockwork was and so many people asked for the name of our band as a recommendation. They kept the crowd on the dance floor the entire night which was exactly what we wanted, joined the crowd on the dance floor, and played exactly what we wanted to hear.
Thank you Ron and Clockwork for making our wedding day everything we wanted and the BEST party!
