  • The band made our day a true dance party/celebration, which was exactly what we wanted. We could not have asked for a better group. The Saxophonist was amazing and really got the crowd to their feet. The band listened to our requests and made sure they happened. So many guests asked us for the contact information for the band for their own big day! We loved BPO!

  • This band was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding day! They were absolutely spectacular- vocals were amazing and they brought so much energy that every single person was on the dance floor for the entire reception. People were texting me from the wedding asking how we found them and everyone is still talking about the epic dance party we had. We changed a few things up from the standard order and the band manager was more than willing to work with us to make sure it was executed perfectly. They also nailed all of our ceremony songs and our unique request for our first dance. My only advice would be to speak with the band manager about any deviations from a standard order of operations before filling out the song/timeline survey - everything worked out great but it may have been easier for us and the manager if we spoke on the phone before we filled out the survey. I would highly recommend this band for any couple whose priority is to have the most amazing day of their ... Read more

  • We hired Big Party Orchestra to play at our wedding reception and we could not be more pleased with that decision! They were so professional and responsive throughout the whole process, including in the months leading up to our wedding. They offered us an extensive song list but can play so many more which was incredibly impressive. They listened to our input when it came to song choices that we wanted to be played and those we did not and they nailed it! The hours that the band played during our reception felt like a concert! All 260 guests were dancing. It was an incredible night and Big Party Orchestra made it so special and so fun. We cannot recommend them highly enough! Thank you BPO!

  • BPO literally MADE our wedding - it's been a few weeks and people are still talking about it. It felt like our wedding turned into an actual concert, the quality of the music was the very best, and the dance floor was packed with 130+ people the entire night! The best money we spent on our wedding was on the band over anything else - we can't recommend them enough!!

    Sam, a one for the books from start to finish the best is when you got up and ripped the guitar!!! Thank you for the wonderful review we had a blast!

  • I found Big Party Orchestra via wedding website searches. After watching video clips of 15-20 bands, BPO was in my top 5... and after speaking with the band manager /musician Peter- BPO quickly became our frontrunner. Peter spent so much time getting to know us and made it his job to understand what we wanted for the wedding. Come the wedding day (last Saturday), they nailed it. Our guests have been RAVING about the band.... asking where we found them, and recommending them to friends and coworkers. The wedding was beautiful; at a vineyard in CT in a beautiful tent, amazing food and drinks... so for the band to be the highlight of the night means they were outstanding. Thank you Peter & BPO!

  • BPO nailed it. Literally every guest has been calling and asking where on earth we found this amazing band. Pete was great, the band brought the energy and performed for us. It didn't feel like an old routine, it felt fresh and they leaned into the audience vibes. They knew we wanted everyone to dance all night- and they delivered. Thank you Pete & BPO!

    Jen, This is amazing and thank you for your thoughts. You sure know how to throw a BIG PARTY...lol. I wish the absolute best to you and Asher on your new journey together please let me know if I can ever help again with anything else, and I will let you if we ever play in NYC!!!! All my best, Peter Barquet

  • The band was seriously one of the best parts of our entire wedding. Music and dancing is so important to my husband and I. We knew we needed a band who would put on a show. BPO did just that! All our guests had a blast and are still talking about the band, and booking them for their weddings too! LOVE LOVE LOVE this band

  • I hired BPO for a wedding in February and still have people inquiring about the band because they were so impressed. Working with Peter made it simple for me to go through the process of hiring, picking out songs, and making sure the schedule of the night ran well. He is an expert at this and it showed, I didn’t have to worry about a thing. He is so easy to work with and makes everything way more fun! I look forward to hiring him again.

    What an awesome review we had a blast thank you Andrea! Looking forward to the next one.:)

  • Big Party Orchestra was fantastic to work with. We used them for our holiday party and they were very easy to schedule and meet our needs. Once set up and playing that worked with us on volume and stopping for speaking. All and all great experience

  • BPO was AMAZING! The best music I've heard at a wedding. From the guitarist who played during our ceremony, to the sax and keyboard players during our cocktail hour, and then the entire band during dinner/reception, everyone was so talented. I really appreciated the way the band strategically placed their break, so that once people got on the dance floor, they didn't stop until the end of the night! The variety of music was perfect and kept everyone entertained. Pete, the owner/manager was also great to work with. He did two separate one hour calls with me leading up to the wedding to talk through timeline, our music tastes, song requests, etc. I felt so confident about our music going into the wedding and knew everything was taken care of. I can't recommend BPO enough!

  • I feel like Big Party Orchestra is the best kept secret in the Boston wedding scene! Our wedding caterer suggested them early on when we were still deciding between a band and a DJ. The best part about BPO is that they're a mix between a live band AND a DJ. Some of their songs sound BETTER than the real thing and they put together incredible mashups of Top 40 hits. Our wedding was SO MUCH FUN because of BPO. Everyone, and I mean everyone, was on the dance floor the whole night. So many people commented that their feet hurt the next day from dancing so much and people who never dance at weddings were having a blast! My dad's one song request was The Rolling Stones' Brown Sugar and they nailed it. There's really nothing they can't do. By the time the last shuttle was leaving at 11:30PM, we had to physically pull people off the dance floor because they wanted to keep dancing. Plus, no one knew where the time had gone! Do not hesitate to book Big Party Orchestra for your event. They cater ... Read more

  • Everyone loved the band and they brought the party. It was like having a hypeteam and live band in one! However, we did not know that the lead singer was replaced until 1 week before the wedding and we did not have footage of who she was beforehand. For the amount we spent, I expected a higher level of professionalism. That being said, I would go back to them to hire a big band again.

    Thank you Emily, I am sorry you were disappointed with the lineup. It is honestly extremely difficult to keep turnover low since my team of musicians are the most requested not only in the wedding circuit but in the live touring/artist circuit as well. When they move on they ONLY move up and I would be an awful leader if I were to hold them back from that. Any change in my company is merely a face in the group and not the quality. Our quality standard is 100% of what my pricing reflects:) Thank you for your feedback and have an amazing Honeymoon!! - Pete

  • Hands down... BPO was the the talk of our wedding. At least 3 of our friends are already talking to them about doing their own wedding. They drove 3 hours North of Boston, brought the same energy into the final hour as they did opening, and even threw in a couple surprises that my wife and I will never forget.

    Thank you, Kyle, for your review. The vibe, the aesthetic of the venue was amazing, and of course, your Big Party was a hit. Good luck and congrats to you and Catie once again:) - Pete

  • We initially found BPO (a 7 piece band) through Nightshift Entertainment. They play at Hennessy's nearly every Thursday night so it was super easy to scope them out! We picked parent dances and an entrance song that weren't on their list, but they didn't bat an eyelash, and played them so well. They set their own playlist and dinner set, so you don't have to worry about much. If you want to be super hands on and dictate the whole playlist, you might want to grab a DJ, but really these guys know how to read a room and play a great set so better to leave the trust in their hands. It really felt like we were treated to a personal concert. They killed every song and we received so many compliments. I love a good band that can get and keep everyone on the dance floor. Peter was awesome to work with during the planning process too. He was super friendly and helpful and has developed a great interactive questionnaire on Honeybook that you can fill in real-time while on the phone wit... Read more

    Hi Kristine, Thank you for taking the time to say all these wonderful things. The State Room was a great choice and I love how the view makes you feel like your in another world. I am glad you and your guests enjoyed the private concert we made for you...lol. Good luck to you and Steve on your new journey together:) All my Best, - Peter Barquet
