  • We are delighted to have made the decision to use the fantastic Boston Common band and superb DJ Josh Boogz for our wedding and encourage anyone to do the same for any event that you might be planning. Their performance can be described in many superlatives, but only one is really necessary...PERFECT! When you still have people mentioning that the band and wedding were the best that they've ever attended over three weeks after the event and asking for the band's contact details for their engaged friends to use, then you can see the kind of incredible impression and wonderful memories that they left with our guests. We thought that trying to decide upon which band to use for our wedding would be a difficult and long process, but after having attended one of their open shows listed on their website http://www.bostoncommonband.com/, it was immediately clear to us that we knew we wanted them to be our band for the wedding. They had perfect sound & volume control of the venue they we... Read more

  • The Boston Common Band made our wedding complete. They are all such talented musicians not to mention amazing people. They made our planning for our wedding day completely stress free. We didn’t want your typical wedding where there is a first dance, people are announced, a set play list, speeches etc. We wanted this to be a true party with no interruptions. We told this to the band and also to the DJ and they totally ran with it. All they needed to know were a few musicians who we loved and they took it from there. Every song they played was better than the one before. Both the DJ and the Band made our wedding so unforgettable not only for us but also for our guest. So many people asked me where I found them and that they had never been to a wedding where they actual loved the band and DJ. The care takers of the sea side retreat that was our wedding venue told us the next day that so many of his neighbors had stopped by to ask about the band and to say how amazing they were...

  • These guys are really wonderful-SO organized, responsive, easy to deal with and sincerely nice people. The combo of the band + DJ REALLY makes the night so much fun--they are really talented and you never have any down time at all with DJ Shyne there to mix beats between sets! The entire wedding was up and dancing and having a BLAST the whole time--they were sincerely awesome.

  • The Boston Common Band and DJ were fantastic at our wedding. We had piano playing during the cocktail hour which also offered great entertainment. We couldn't have asked for a better band to play our wedding. Everyone raved after the wedding about how fun, professional, and exciting Boston Common Band was. The band was exactly how we imagined. Highly recommended!!

  • We heard of this band through word of mouth. We live out of state and viewed many of their video's online. After speaking with the band, I knew we had made the right choice. We booked this band even before we booked our wedding hall. During and after the wedding we continue to get complements on how good the band was. DJ Shyne as DJ and MC kept the party moving all night and we cannot say enough good things about them both. If you're in the New England area and looking for a band. Look no further, book them before they're booked up. Thanks again Guys!! - Chrissy and John

  • EXCEPTIONAL! My husband and I spend a lot of time and energy to find the "perfect band" for our wedding. We contacted several agencies, and invested a lot of effort including many painful hours of watching wedding bands on youtube! Don't waste your time...these guys are hands down the way to go! I am a wedding photographer and attend an increadible amount of weddings each year. I have seen and heard wedding bands all the way from the Carolinas to New England and feel that without a doubt these guys are of the highest quality. From my first conversation with Jonathan on the phone I knew there was something different about this band. He made a few simple suggestions that obviously came from experience and had a unique insight into how a wedding should smoothly flow. This is what caught my immeadiate attention, then I discovered how talented the band is. Jonathan very much focused on the small details which in the end are crucial to a successful party. There wasn't a moment at our recept... Read more

  • All I can say is The Boston Common Band was amazing. My wife and I got so much positive feedback from there performance. Everyone said by far the best band they have ever seen at a wedding and I agree! We had to hire Boston Common unseen do to my demanding graduate school schedule. Based on the information on there website (including videos) and the fact they are Berkley grads we decided on them. Their attention to detail during the preparation of our event insured us we made the right choice and we never had to worry. Then on the day of the wedding their performance just proved we made the right choice. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

  • My wife and I were married last September in CT and could not have been happier with The Boston Common Band. What's amazing about them is that they really function as a great band, not just a great wedding band. We had ask them to learn three songs which they did perfectly and had also asked explicitly that our guests got up and stayed up dancing through the whole party and Boston Common kept the party going strong all night. I can't count how many guests commented on the music. Our friends were covered in sweat by the end of the night from the non stop dancing. They play great contemporary songs and are a pleasure to work with. We would recommend them to anyone getting married in the Boston region! Boston Common made our wedding the great and memorable party we hoped it would be and then some. It was incredible. -Adam, Hartford wedding

  • When my husband and I were planning our wedding the music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception took top priority. Quality music was especially important for us since some my husband's family and some of our friends are musicians - tough critics. We wanted the music to be lively and fun - songs that young and old know, but that aren't dated or cheesy; songs that would keep everyone on the dance floor all night; songs that would make the wedding a real party. Because neither of us are from New England, all of our planning was remote. We never heard the Boston Common Band live before our actual wedding, but we did listen to them on YouTube. The clips don't do them justice. Simply put, the band and DJ were AMAZING! The dance floor was packed the entire night! They are all truly gifted musicians. One month later, our family and friends are still raving about it. According to everyone we talk to, the band was "out of this world,"and "an incredibly tight band" We agree! ... Read more

  • These guys are great. They played our wedding 2 weeks ago in Boston, and people keep telling us how great our band was. I was really happy with the mix of songs they played, how amazing they sounded, the fact that they were flexible with some of our requests, and mostly that the entire wedding was dancing the whole time. We had a really great time with them and I would recommend them to anyone. Also, they did an awesome job with our first dance (stay with you-john legend), especially since it was a song they had to learn. It was spot on!

  • They were awesome. Very talented musicians, the music was spot on. They worked the crowd very well and the male vocalist came onto the dance floor to show us a few Michael Jackson moves, so much fun. They were professional and great at what they do. My only complaint was that a few songs we had asked them to play ahead of time did not get played.

    Hi Tom & Gretchen! Thanks so much for the review! Apologies that we couldn't get to every song, we we're working with a very limited time-frame since the venue/catering had run late and forced us to cut our sets short! Please let us know if there's anything else we can do for you in the future!
