Having great music was really important to us, and the O-Tones definitely delivered. My now-husband and I love oldies, Motown, and big band standards, which are the O-Tones' specialty. We went with a 4-piece combo due to the size of our venue, which ended up being perfect. They were great at being background music during dinner and then getting everybody dancing afterwards, which was exactly what we wanted. Mary kept things moving during the evening, which was really helpful, and even let a couple of friends sing with the band, which was really fun. There was excellent communication before the wedding as well: Mary worked directly with the venue to make sure the technical stuff was taken care of, so I didn't have to bother with it; she made sure the songs we cared about were played, and was generally very professional and also fun to work with. I'd absolutely recommend the O-Tones if you're looking for great live music.Sent on 10/28/2017
The O-Tones's reply:Mollie, thank you so much for the wonderful review. We loved playing for your wedding reception in the beautiful downtown Boston restaurant. Your guests and the workers at the venue were all really nice, easy to interact with. So glad your friends and family love to dance, that made it so fun for us! And I'm glad the music for cocktails and dinner were just the right style and volume. We wish you all the best in your marriage!

The Otones deliver gorgeous music to any occasion
The Otones are so talented! Everyone loved their choice of songs, and they got people up and dancing. Since our gala fundraiser, friends have asked to connect them to the Otones for their events. They create joy and are so friendly. Their harmonies and variety of instrumentation create a sound that's like you've hired a big band even when there are 3 of them onstage.Sent on 04/05/2019
The O-Tones's reply:Thank you Maggie, we loved playing for your group! Everyone was so appreciative and really enjoyed the celebration.

The O-Tones are an incredibly professional band that also happens to kill it when it comes to making music. If you want to dance and smile and bring people together, then hire them. NOW!Sent on 03/06/2018

A trio of the O-Tones presented a Sunday afternoon concert at the Lathrop Retirement Community in Easthampton on January 21, 2018. Their harmonies were beautiful, their musical selections were varied and appropriate, and their good spirit was palpable. Simply put, they were a hit! Mary Witt was very easy to work with, and the whole experience was professional and smooth. We look forward to having them return!Sent on 03/11/2018
The O-Tones's reply:Thanks so much...we had a wonderful time playing for the seniors and their friends and family! Even the 104 year old ;)

Mary Witt was my contact person for the O-Tones, who kindly traveled to Lincoln, MA to play at my wedding. Mary was a pleasure to work with - very responsive, sent a great demo CD (which I still listen to!), and made our contract terms very clear. I found their fee very reasonable. On the day of the wedding, they arrived and set up with no problems. They sounded GREAT and played the song we requested for our first dance. I loved having them because even people who didn't dance commented that they enjoyed watching/listening to the band. I wholeheartedly recommend the O-Tones for any event.Sent on 04/10/2016

The O-Tones were the entertainment at our annual fundraising gala. Their music was enjoyed by all, they were very easy to work with and I would definitely invite them back in the future.Sent on 09/28/2017

The Otones couldn't have been more wonderful for our event. The music was lively yet never interfered with conversations or the needs of the program. We wanted to make announcements from time to time and they made me feel like a talented part of the show! Everyone remarked about the professionalism of their performance. I'd recommend them any time to any one who wants a band to add class, great sounds, and are a dream to work with.Sent on 09/21/2017
The O-Tones's reply:Thank you so much Maggie. We had a wonderful time working with you. So inspiring! And what a beautiful setting. It was nice to feel that the music fit the event perfectly !

We run large arts festivals, and have used the O-Tones many times for live entertainment / background music. This time we used them as a trio, but we have also hired them as a six piece band. They are always well-received by our attendees and exhibitors, and provide a lively ambiance for our shows. They are receptive to modifications in volume/amplification, which is important to us.Sent on 06/01/2017
The O-Tones's reply:Thank you Linda. We love working with Paradise City Arts Festival!

We hired The O-Tones for our three day dance event . Wonderful vocals and great bluesy swing tunes for dancing. With musical versatility and intuitive sense of humor, The O-Tones get people on their feet and set the tone for fun.Sent on 06/10/2017
The O-Tones's reply:Thanks Cindy...we had a wonderful time playing for dancers of all ages!

Mary Witt and John Caban of the O-Tones played for our 25th Anniversary celebration, and their music made the evening magical. Mary has a gorgeous sultry voice and wonderful repertoire. She has everything - charm, talent, great artistic sensibility, gracious professionalism and a wonderful smile. She and John made the party fabulous. I've heard them with a larger group at other venues where there is dancing and they can also make the dance floor really swing. We wanted a dinner party at home, and the duo was great for listening and background - Mary on bass and vocals, and John on guitar - just divine! Highly recommended.Sent on 05/17/2017
The O-Tones's reply:Thank you Renna, we had a wonderful time and enjoy all the different sized groups that we bring to celebrations!

Decide how many musicians you want to have for the venue... I had a birthday party for 70 guests, with the bend playing in the dining room of a country inn. I opted for a guitar, a bass guitar, and a keyboard player. The band was told ahead of time that the guests would be mostly in the 40-75 year old range, and they played appropriate music for that group and the venue. I could not have had a more wonderful band then the O-Tones for my party! REALLY! They're good folks!Sent on 12/18/2016
The O-Tones's reply:We really loved playing for your friends and family in that beautiful inn! Happy to be part of a joyous celebration.

The O-Tones had a wonderful blend of danceable R&B, Swing, and Motown - all the music we grew up loving - and amazing harmonies. I was surprised and happy at how many of our friends and family got up and danced, and stayed up. And Mary was wonderful with all the details before our big day - she was professional, flexible, very responsive and very organized.Sent on 04/13/2016
