  • We chose Boston Common to play our wedding in August of last year. They were, quite simply, AWESOME!! I can't even count the number of friends that kept saying to us that they were the best wedding band they had ever heard! Even our photographers mentioned how great they were, and I'm sure they've heard many many other bands before. The best part about them is the fact that they are all phenomenal musicians that you can tell take pride in what they do. I really appreciated the fact that they took the time to meet with us and make sure that their style and playlist lined up with our ideas for the evening. My husband and I already thinking of ways to have another party so we can hire them again! We fully recommend Boston Common and are so glad we had them perform at our wedding!

  • Boston Common Band was the absolute highlight of our wedding. They kept the dance floor going all night long and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. Even a month after our wedding, our friends and family are still talking about how great they were. When the band took its breaks, they had DJ Matty G step in. To be honest, we were a bit worried about Matty because he didn’t have any reviews but he did a great job keeping the party going and was exactly what we were looking for. One additional thing to note is that the band only allows for 3 song requests which get taken up by the first dance and parent dances(even if they are traditional wedding type songs). This was not an issue for us at all as the band obviously knew what they were doing and every song they played was great. We would strongly recommend Boston Common Band to any couple looking to have a blast at their reception. Thank you, Christine and Jay

  • I don't even know where to start. I cannot say enough AMAZING things about this band. They are by far thee best wedding band I have ever seen. They are not only incredible musicians, but put on quite a show when on the stage! Each member has such a unique personality they bring to the overall performance, and several times throughout the night the band got down on the dance floor to entertain and teach different dances. Not to mention the DJ that comes with it! It truly is the best of both worlds... My husband wanted a DJ and I wanted a band so this was the PERFECT compromise. I HIGHLY recommend them, they sound EXACTLY like the artists who actually sing the songs and the musicians are incredibly talented. Hire them, it's the best decision you can make to ensure that your wedding is a blast!

  • "Best of Boston" is an understatement! The BCB was one of the best decisions my husband and I made during our planning process. From the beginning, they were very professional and absolutely wonderful to work with. The wedding itself was a blast and my guest are still raving about them! All I keep hearing is "your wedding was amazing", and I can honestly say that a lot of it had to do with the BCB. They are more than musicians - they are entertainers! Our wedding was like a live concert and everyone had front row! I look forward to recommending them for year's to come, and I feel lucky to have had them part of our big day!

  • Each member of the band, the manager, and the DJ they brought with them were FANTASTIC - they read the crowd, played a great mix of new hits and classic favorites and kept the guests on their feet. Even after they performed their requested encore song, everyone kept chanting 'one more song' - we couldnt get enough of them! The entertainment can really make or break and event, and if youre looking for a talented, professional, kick-ass band, Boston Common is for you!!

  • We just had our outdoor wedding a couple of weeks ago and had Boston Common Band at our event. They were AMAZING! I honestly cannot say enough about them. From the minute I contracted with them to play at my wedding, they were nothing but professional and easy to work with. They called me/emailed me plenty of times before the wedding just to "check in" with me. They were quick to respond to any questions that I had prior to the event. Right before the big day they spent a long time giving me suggestions on song choices..which were all perfect by the way! The band even learned to play the songs for my first dance and the dance with my father! And during the wedding, they did not disappoint! Sometimes we couldn't tell if it was the Band signing or the actual song. Other songs they put their own great spin on it. People from the wedding are still coming up to me and asking "who was that great band" and that "the band made the wedding!". I couldn't agree with them more. The... Read more

  • BOSTON COMMON BAND IS THE BEST BAND EVER! The band had everyone up and dancing...even people who I thought for sure would be stuck to their seats all night. We continually heard comments from guests throughout the night, "this is the best wedding band I have ever heard", "i have never had so much fun dancing", " all the musicians are really talented." We decided to add in two horns (trumpet and sax), and wow...absolutely amazing! Even our photographer commented that they were one of the best bands he has ever heard (and I can only imagine how many wedding bands he hears). Bottom line - you can't go wrong with Boston Common Band, they will not disappoint!

  • We can’t say enough about this band!! They were reasonably priced, included a DJ (DJ Josh Boogz was awesome!), and also provided cocktail hour music. We had some fun/creative requests, and they were so accommodating. The dance floor was packed all night, and our guests are still raving about them! You cannot go wrong with Boston Common at your wedding!

  • The Boston Common Band was an INCREDIBLE wedding band! Prior to the big day, the were extremely professional and attentive to work with, and they had everyone dancing from start to finish during the reception. I had so many people come up to me after the wedding to let me know this was the BEST wedding band they had ever heard. Boston Common Band exceed our expectations, and every bride/groom should feel confident this band can carry the party from start until finish.

  • We heard of the band from a friend who had been a guest of a wedding they performed at and said they were awesome. From our first consultation with the band, we knew we had made the right choice. They are absolute professionals (musicians and DJ) and helped us manage every aspect of our special day..... making it absolutely stress-free. DJ Shyne was a great MC and such a pleasure to deal with as was Jonathan and the rest of the band..... just awesome people!!! The music was great and they kept folks up and dancing for the entire evening. We got so many comments afterward about how great the band was. They certainly helped make our wedding memorable. Finally, we really feel this was such a good value. We got so much for our money (piano music during cocktail hour, a DJ during dinner who also served as MC and an unbelievable band with spectacular lighting and equipment!). We would recommend Boston Common Band to anyone.

  • 5 stars is not even enough to rate how great Boston Common is. They were so amazing at our wedding. They learned three songs for us one of which was a super old song and they played it like it wasn't even a challenge. It sounded better than the original. Everyone was up and dancing the whole time, including the older folk!! I couldn't wish up a better band than Boston Common. I HIGHLY recommend that you hire this group for your wedding you will NOT regret it.

  • The Boston Common Band was absolutely fantastic! We were nervous because we were planning the wedding remotely and have never seen the band live before. Based on some YouTube videos, we felt the band fit the bill and signed them. Boy were we pleasantly surprised on our wedding night! The band was incredible and all of our guests talked endlessly about how great the band was. Everyone in the band was very professional and the entire night went smoothly. I can't remember a moment when people weren't out there dancing. One special thing the band did was learn the First Dance song even though we had no idea they were playing it live. We only told them what the song would be about a week before the wedding! Thank you guys so much for doing that and for making our wedding a very memorable one!

  • Out of all the (many!) decisions that went into planning our wedding, hiring Boston Common Band was hands down the best one we made--they were awesome! Both the band and DJ played a great mix of current hits and oldies that kept the dance floor packed all night, their lighting helped make the room, and DJ Matty G was totally fantastic (from going through all the timeline/request/pronunciation details with me in advance, to re-playing a request I had missed earlier in the night). We still have guests commenting on how fantastic the band was and asking where we found them. If you're looking into hiring Boston Common for your wedding, do it - you will not regret it and your guests will thank you!

  • Let me add my wonderful review! I planned my wedding from 3000 miles away and never met the band members or DJ in person until the day of the wedding. They were absolutely amazing. They set up conference calls to work around my schedule with the time difference on the West Coast, and they were very thorough to get all the information they needed. I must say that even though I gave them a long list of requests, I didn't hear any of those for the first hour of the dance party, but I had several people come up to me to compliment the band and the young lady singing especially. I was also a little annoyed that they waited an extra 15-20 minutes than scheduled to announce the cake cutting and play our special "cake cutting song", when we had gone over the timeline very specifically several times, (and my videographer had to then stay late to capture that moment) but overall, I was very happy. They seem to really know what they are doing with getting people on the dance floor!

    responded with the following comments.

    Hello Jacqueline, Thanks so much for the very positive review... I hope that your first few weeks of marriage have treated you well!! :) Regarding the song requests and timeline; Unfortunately the catering did not follow the agreed timeline and served us EXTREMELY late. This was something out of our control... However, we ate as quickly as possible and then even cut our break shorter for you to makeup for the difference. Nonetheless, we had an amazing time performing for both of your families. We hope to see you again sometime soon... please keep in touch! All The Best, ~Jonathan~
