  • Working with Closing Time was amazing!! Ryan was very responsive and accommodating. We got SO many compliments on how good they were, and having both a male an female vocalist performing really gave it an extra something. Closing Time really made the party!!

  • When we were first dating we would go to a few bars in Boston to see this amazing band. We never dreamed we'd be able to have them at our wedding but they truly made our dreams come true !!! They are crazy talented and gave our guests the BEST DANCE PARTY at our wedding in Kennebunkport ME. We received ENDLESS compliments from our wedding guests saying it was the best band they had EVER seen at a wedding and how much fun they had because of them. Ryan, the band leader, had a long phone conference with us beforehand to make sure we had all of the details ironed out and he knew all of our song choices/name pronunciations/schedule/etc. He was extremely organized and professional. He did a great job announcing everything we asked him to during our wedding and has an amazing voice! The female lead singer was just as incredible and I would highly recommend doing the 6 piece or 7 piece band so that she can cover the female songs. They played a wide array of songs from 60s-90s-today wh... Read more

  • We knew we wanted live music at our wedding, and Closing Time ended up being one of the most talked about highlights of our day! Ryan and the team were so organized, professional, so kind, and accommodated all our requests flawlessly - including complicated first dances. The set list they played for us and our guests was SO perfect that no one wanted to sit down for a single song!! And the energy was so infectious that we had wedding crashers who lived near the venue come all the way over just to inquire who was playing! It’s a month later and our friends and family are still buzzing about them and how much fun the dance floor was. You will NOT regret booking them!!

  • We had such a great time with Closing Time as our band! I am definitely a type A personality when it comes to planning anything, and it was magnified for our wedding, but Ryan read and responded to all of my novel-length emails with understanding and excitement. Our phone call with him before the wedding would have been enough, though, considering how organized and thorough he was. Closing Time also supplied equipment and much-needed expertise for our ceremony and cocktail hour, which made everything run seamlessly. We didn't have a big wedding, and many of those who did attend were not big dancers, but Closing Time got everyone up on the floor at one point or another and kept the energy high throughout the night. All of our guests made sure to tell us what a great band we had hired and how much fun they had--Closing Time is a fantastic group of performers to have at a wedding!

  • The Closing Time Band were an absolute pleasure to work with. Band Leader, Ryan had a clear understanding of what it takes to provide exceptional entertainment for our guests, while we able to focus on simply enjoying our event. The methodical professionalism set forth by Ryan's pre planning with us was priceless. His attention to detail went beyond anything we would have thought of ourselves, right down to engineering the sound quality of the full band to this specific venue, so that the music was audibly enjoyable for all our guests. The tremendous talent of the musicians would end up being dwarfed by Ryan's ability to tactfully and personably emcee the event. As the night progressed, we understood it was the band, Closing Time, that represented to our guests the wedding day that we had planned so carefully. Besides the bride and groom, the band was our guests focal point and 'The Vibe" brought forth was a wonderful visual and musical spectacle as the wedding planner, florists... Read more

  • If you are looking for a band that will get everybody dancing, then Closing Time is it. They take the time to understand the type of music you want, open to new ideas, and are masters at their craft. The #2 most heard quote of the night (after "congratulations", of course) was "the band was incredible". Seriously. If you like fun, dancing, and great music played by great musicians then you've found your band right here.

  • Closing Time is THE BEST WEDDING BAND ever!! When we were first deciding on the music for our wedding, we thought we would get a DJ because we wanted the songs to be consistent. We decided on a band at the last minute and went with closing time because they were young and we felt that they had high energy and would get everyone on the dance floor. They were FANTASTIC - people were dancing BEFORE dinner and didn't stop until the band literally left the stage. They play all kinds of music very well and get everyone of all ages excited to get up and dance. They are also incredibly flexible - they worked with some crazy requests and created a special mashup for our parent dances. Ryan is so friendly and easy to work with and he made everything go super smoothly. We chose them for our ceremony and cocktail hour as well and they were fantastic. I can't imagine any other band that would have been better for our wedding. Honestly, we plan to hear them live any time they play in Boston!... Read more

  • We had Closing Time as our wedding band September 1st, 2018 on Thompson Island in the Boston Harbor. They were AMAZING!!! We got the 7 piece band and also had acoustic guitar for the cocktail hour and we were very happy with both. The band were wonderful communicators before the wedding as we planned for the wedding and were even better on the day. The party was rocking the entire time and we heard repeatedly over the next couple weeks how many people thought the band was the best they'd heard! Do yourself a favor and go see one of their shows so that you can hear for yourself how incredible they are. Many thanks to the whole group from a very happy couple! -Taylor (groom)

  • Where do I start? Closing Time was everything we expected and more. There was not a single guest at our wedding who did not comment on how great the band was. Being a musician, having sung and played in bands myself, I was incredibly apprehensive about choosing the music for our wedding. My husband and I scouted at least 10 different wedding bands, watching demo videos and going to live shows. We saw Closing Time at The Lawn on D and hands down I was singing along to pretty much every song. Their sound, vocals and song selection are top notch, and I will freely admit that I am incredibly picky when it comes to music. I actually went to the Lawn on D several more times to see them play before our wedding. Communications with their agent was uncomplicated and Ryan the front man was very responsive. I expected having to meet with the band a couple of times to discuss the details. Boy was I wrong! Ryan clarified everything in ONE phone call, and I did not have to lift another finger or ...

  • One of our first vendors we booked was Closing Time!! We hired their 5 piece band with a female and male vocals. They were awesome and kept the dance floor full all night long! Their lead singer and manager Ryan was great to work with and took care to make sure we had all the songs we requested for ceremony and reception. We got the most compliments on the band and everyone wanted to know how we found them and who they were! Hands down one of the best decisions we made!

  • Closing Time absolutely made our wedding! Our guests are still talking about how great they were. They played stuff for the younger people and seamlessly blended into songs the older people loved. The dance floor was full the entire night. I can't say enough good things about Closing Time. My only regret is not having Ryan sing live for my walk down the aisle cause holy cow does he have an amazing voice! I've been to other weddings with bands and these guys blow everyone out of the water. I'm so glad we had them at our wedding, they made it unforgettable.

  • Closing time was AMAZING! We could not have picked a better band for our wedding. They played a great variety of music that we chose from their list - our guests started dancing the minute the band started playing! Our guests still rave about the music to this day - thank you closing time for making our wedding reception such a fun and memorable time!

  • Closing Time went above and beyond to ensure our wedding was one to be remembered!! From the first conversation until the wedding day, Ryan was open and communicative with us, ensuring that all of our wants musically for the wedding were met. Eight months before the wedding date, when we learned the best man was deploying, Ryan and his band, without hesitation accommodated us moving the wedding up 2 months. On the day of the wedding, Ryan arrived early to set up the sound system for the ceremony and tested all equipment to ensure everything went off without a hitch. Ryan and the band even helped us pull off a epic surprise sing-a-long of happy birthday for the father of the bride. When it came to the dancing portion of the night Closing Time had the entire dance floor backed from start to finish with their amazing covers and engaging performance skills!! We would highly recommend Closing Time for all your wedding & musical entertainment needs!

  • We were married on 9/16/17 and had Closing Time play for our reception as well as provide acoustic guitar for our ceremony and a live trio for the cocktail hour. We were SO blown away! We hadn't heard the band play live before hiring them so we were relying on the promo video and other videos of them playing live when we chose them. While they sound great in those videos, there is NO comparison to how AMAZING they are in person! It's over a week after our wedding and our guests are still telling us how much they loved the band. Murray Hill Talent and the band leader, Ryan, were so easy to work with and so accommodating. The band itself is just insanely talented, has a great energy and plays such a crowd-pleasing repertoire of songs. We had an absolute blast and would not hesitate to hire them again!

  • We have had so many awesome comments from our wedding guests on how great the band was at our wedding. They started the night off strong and ended it having to kick almost everyone off the dance floor. Great to work with, professional, and fun!!
