  • Dave,Irene and the band were amazing ---- just the greatest band and the greatest to deal with! They played at my daughter's large wedding last month and they had everyone up dancing the whole time- even the few people who don't typically dance. I have been to a million weddings and other events and this was by far the best band I have seen. If you want a high energy band, pick The Dave Macklin Band. I am still getting compliments about them. They are also so easy to deal with in all the planning before-- very responsive, very warm, and very professional. We are just so happy they played at their wedding. They are the absolute best!

  • We have had two other big birthday parties with a band, and each band was the talk of the town for years afterwards. The Dave Macklin Band continued that tradition by providing really great music from a really great band, this time for our 140th birthday party. So many people have mentioned to us how great the band was. Thank you to all the musicians, and an extra big thanks to you Irene, for being so professional and easy to work with. We will pencil you in for our 200th birthday party in July of 2049!!!!

  • Dave and the band played at my wedding a few weeks ago and I have not stopped receiving compliments about them!! Every single person absolutely loved them! We saw the band play at a local venue a year ago and we were absolutely impressed. My incredibly picky fiancé (now husband) was smitten. I inquired on a limb about their prices and availability and I was ecstatic with the results! Their music persuaded even my least social/dance-y relatives to get out on the dance floor and have a blast. The interactions with Irene and the band are nothing but professional and accommodating, the performance is outstanding, the music is friendly for all ages, and the joy they include in your day is irreplaceable. Thank you so much for making our day perfect!!

  • From the first time we saw them we knew we needed them to be our wedding band! They were exactly what we were looking for. They are so incredibly talented for starters, never mind the vibe they give! Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night. My wedding was 2 months ago and people are still talking about them! I would highly recommend you hire them if you want a night to remember. Irene Dave and Keon were all fantastic to work with. We will continue to go see them at appearances around the Boston area. We couldn't be happier, they were amazing in every aspect.

  • I booked Dave Macklin Band without ever seeing them live, and I'm so glad I took the chance and did. The music (for both ceremony and reception) was perfect; I wouldn't have changed a thing. They were professional, responsive throughout booking, and so much fun. I would highly recommend them!

    Thank you very much Robyn! It was truly our pleasure and honor to be part of your special day! Best wishes from all of us!

  • I am not being biased because this was my wedding but this band was one of the best I have ever herd! We never saw them in person before the wedding just watched YouTube videos.Very reasonably priced and so talented! They played all the songs I wanted and did such an amazing job, engaged the crowd and all of our guests commented on how great the band was! They even broke out in Italian Opera! I highly highly recommend!

  • The Dave Macklin Band was suggested to us by my mother in law and shortly after we decided to go out and see them in person. We decided that night they were the band for us and booked for our September wedding. We also had them provide violin and piano for our ceremony. They exceeded our expectations in every way from start to finish. The energy created by the band is just not comparible to a DJ and it kept everyone on the dance floor moving! Thank you again DMB for making our wedding day so special! Mr. & Mrs. Souza

  • You will NOT regret hiring the Dave Macklin Band for your event, especially your wedding. One of the most important aspects of our wedding we knew would be the band and the Dave Macklin Band did not disappoint. We went to listen to them a couple times before booking them for our wedding. Each time we went to listen the blew us away. Irene, their manager, and Dave's wife is super easy to work with. And they are extremely affordable, which is always a plus! The band is all around unbelievable. Their voices are unbelievable and really make the night something special. Dave and Gisela have amazing voices - voices that will have your guests talking for weeks afterward. They also have a horns section of their band which really made it that much better. They had all of our guests on the dance floor before my husband and I had a chance to make our way around the venue to say hi to everyone. And they had us dancing all night long. It was an amazing night and they definitely helped make it that ... Read more

  • DMB was tremendous in helping us plan our wedding reception, and in playing three unbelievable sets for us and our guests. We can't wait to go see them again, and hire them too if we have the opportunity. Couldn't have asked for better music or played by a better group.

  • The Dave Macklin Band played for my wedding on Sept. 3, 2017 they were fantastic, so many people came up to us and called after wedding asking the name of band and to say how they were so good. Their voices and songs were as good as you would ever here in any band. Irene was great to deal with, always getting right back to you when you had a question. I highly recommend this band to anyone, you will be so happy you had them play at any event. I really can't say enough about them they were truly amazing. Andrea

  • Dave Macklin Band MADE our wedding day! Working with Irene was easy - she was very responsive and flexible with our needs. I asked for the band to provide sound at our outside ceremony and they went out of their way to accommodate our requests. They had everyone dancing from start to finish! I still have people asking me where I found them! Worth every penny we saved for them! I couldn't have been happier with the amazing dance music they chose to play. Each musician was extremely talented and skilled. If you're reading this and shopping for the best wedding or event band, look no further! DMB is the BEST!

  • Just go ahead and book them right now- it will be the best decision you make! The Dave Macklin Band played at my wedding this past weekend and completely MADE the party. From the beginning they were easy to work with, attentive, and even learned special songs for us. You will not find a better wedding band and we will definitely hire them again and again for other parties. Our guests raved about the band and we are still getting compliments about them days later. They had the crowd dancing all night. We can't wait to see them again!

  • The Dave Macklin Band played our wedding on 7/21 at the Thompson Inn in Durham, NH. We decided to do the 8-piece band with added horns section and they did an amazing job! Having a band was one of the most important aspects of our wedding. We didn't want to break the bank and that's hard to find when looking for a good band. Then we found DMB - and their price was right! We saw the Dave Macklin Band twice before our wedding - and they are truly awesome performers. They were easy to communicate with through the whole process. Irene, the band manager/Dave's wife, did a great job keeping us informed and updated. She did a great job creating a set-list. Literally everyone at our wedding RAVED about the band and how AMAZING Gisela & Kion were as singers and what a fantastic guitarist Dave is. We are so glad we went with DMB. They were affordable, high-energy and definitely MADE the wedding! Thanks again!!
