  • As a seasoned event planner for more than 15 years, and when it came time to plan my own celebration.... HOT MESS was hands down my first (and lets be honest.. ONLY) choice to celebrate. I have worked with Jason as a vendor partner on many occasions, and knew that his warmth and professionalism (and not to mention great humor) were a perfect match. Not only are Jason + Co some of the most talented performers I have worked with in my experience, he works with couples on a personal level to make sure that everything flows in a way that is seamless and keeps the party going! Every part of the planning experience - from working with Gail to putting the song list and details together with Jason leading up to the party is seamless. I am very particular when it comes to those details and knew that their performance would go above and beyond!! All of my friends and family still text me daily saying how they were "THE BEST BAND" they have ever heard. Do your self a favor and hire them. It will... Read more

  • This band will make your wedding. The amazing vocals, and sheer musical talent they possess transforms your wedding Dance floor to the next level. They are the #1 thing my guests talked about all night. They are willing and able to make your personal songs come to life, and also coming into the crowd, playing all ranges of music. They are the LITERAL best band for a wedding I have seen. They are responsive and timely with communications leading up to the wedding, and Jason makes you feel like family from your first call with him. I highly recommend this vendor and hope you see them at a wedding or a show if you’re considering them- their work speaks for itself when you’re live.

  • I will preface this review by saying that my wife and I have been to many weddings prior to our own (over thirty). Nearly every one had a band, so we were able to observe over time and decide what we were looking for. We were particular about what we wanted, and did significant research before ultimately choosing Hot Mess. For us, the band was integral to the wedding to ensure our guests had a phenomenal night. Jason and his team really outperformed even our very high expectations! Jason was highly accessible prior to the wedding to ensure he knew the vibe we were looking for and was extremely attentive to wedding day details. He listened to our suggestions with a "client first" mentality and could not have been more helpful or enthusiastic throughout the process. On wedding day, Hot Mess really brought it and went above and beyond. Our guests were having such a good time that the band took limited breaks and played for longer than expected. The performance was interactive and ever... Read more

  • Hot Mess was the icing on our wedding cake! They brought the party to our wedding. While I was researching for my wedding vendors, I thought seriously how can everyone have 5 stars, not everyone is that good. Now on the other side, I realize that all of these vendors are complete rock stars and deserve every 5-star review they receive. Jason and the band were absolutely incredible. They had our dance floor packed the entire night. It was really important to me that we didn't get your typical wedding band. I did NOT want a band that had choreographed dances and would make weird facial expressions and try to oversell what they were performing (weird- I know!), but when we went out and saw Hot Mess- I KNEW they were the band for us. Jason took the time to have a phone call with me a week before to go over all the names in our wedding party to get the correct pronunciation and confirm the songs we wanted. My husband picked out our first dance song (it was a surprise) and the band ... Read more

  • I don't even know where to begin!! This band is INCREDIBLE! Right from the start, Jason, Gail and the entire team were an absolute dream to work with. Professional, organized, responsive and FUN! My wedding started with John Polino playing at the cocktail hour - an unbelievable performer with a perfect set list! The entire band then played a dinner set, and after dinner the party started and never stopped! The dance floor was packed! We had guests ranging in age from 3 to 95 and everyone was out there having a GREAT time! Each member of the band is SO talented and really interacts with the crowd! Our family and friends cannot stop commenting on how phenomenal Hot Mess was! Our wedding was truly the best night of our lives to date and Hot Mess was a HUGE part of that! I cannot recommend this band enough! If I had to do it all again I would choose Hot Mess every time! THANK YOU!

  • If you want everyone and by everyone I mean grandparents, great aunts/uncles in their 90's, your parents, all your friends, etc. dancing all night long then you need to hire this band immediately. I am a firm believer that a good band is the key to an amazing wedding and after seeing Hot Mess at my friends wedding 2 years ago I knew I had to have them for mine. Well let me tell you, they did not disappoint!! Every single person who came to the wedding said the band was AMAZING and was by far the BEST BAND they had ever seen/heard. I booked them for an additional 2 hours, most wedding receptions are 4 hours (after cocktail hour) - I booked them for 6 hours and worried that with open bar for that long people may start to pass out but the dance floor stayed jam packed all night long. There were people who were waiting by the stage at the end of the night to get their cards to try and book them. On top of it all Jason is so incredibly easy to work with, soo organized (even my wedding plann... Read more

  • If you are looking for a wedding band, look no further. The second we contacted Hot Mess they were nothing but professionals. Jason and Gail were amazing to work with right up till our wedding day. He and his whole band had my entire wedding (270 people) out on the dance floor all night. We got so many compliments on how good Jason and the band were. The best decision hands down we made for out wedding!!

  • Nervous about making sure everyone has fun at your wedding?? Book Hot Mess immediately!! Hot Mess infused this completely sincere and incredibly infectious energy into every single interaction leading up to our wedding, and every second of every song during our reception... it 100% can’t be taught, can’t be replicated, and can’t be faked. The energy they bring made our wedding absolutely unforgettable. We can’t possibly be more thankful that Jason and Hot Mess were part of our day. Seriously... book them now!

  • My husband and I got married a few weeks ago and we still cannot stop talking about Hot Mess. Jason, Gail, and the rest of the band were amazing right from the start. We had a particularly long reception with a lot moving parts and Gail and Jason were so kind and devoted to putting together the perfect evening for us. We got a chance to speak with Jason over the phone the week before the wedding and go over everything and what shined through even more than his professionalism was his genuine excitement to be a part of our day! Jason was even more excited in person when we met him the day of! We were able to relax and enjoy our reception knowing that Jason and the rest of the band were going to bring the fun- and did they ever! We had family and friends coming up to us all night commenting on how amazing and fun the band was! Everyone loved the variety of instruments and the variety of songs played. The band even did a great job incorporating some traditional Italian music that my famil... Read more

  • This group is so wonderful - they are AMAZING performers and such a pleasure to work with. Jason walked through all our song choices with us and provided suggestions on what to open/close with and they really know how to read a crowd! No one was in their seats the whole reception and my guests all raved about how wonderful the band was. Not to mention, my new husband woke up with a bruised hand from tambourine-ing too hard. I want to throw another party just to have them!!

  • My husband and I took a big risk for our wedding day and booked Hot Mess without hearing them play. My parents had seen them perform at wine festivals and insisted if there was one thing we needed to do for our wedding, it was to have this band. We were hesitant never having heard them play, but we couldn’t have been more pleased with our decision! Hot Mess was very professional from the start in having kick off calls with us to make sure our big day ran perfectly – and it did! They learned a new song for our first dance as husband and wife and killed it. The dance floor was rocking from the time they started until they finished their last song, and we had people of all ages on the dance floor the entire night, something I rarely see at weddings! It was also a big hit among our friends when the band gave a tambourine to one of our friends to play along – he is now nicknamed “Jonny Tambourine”. Having Hot Mess at our wedding was certainly the highlight, and we highly recommend... Read more

  • Where do I even begin?! Book this band immediately! Hot Mess preformed at our wedding in Sept 2019 and blew my expectations out of the water. From the beginning, Gail and Jason were wonderful to work with. Jason even managed to keep me calm when we thought we might have a wedding amidst hurricane Dorian. I knew either way, they’d help us throw an incredible party. And that they did. The night of the wedding, they knocked it out of the park. I know people say this, but I mean it - they got EVERYONE dancing. Including my 91 year old grandmother. They truly and honestly made our wedding. It was such a joyous and FUN celebration. So so many guests have said Hot Mess is the best wedding band they’ve ever heard. All I can say is wow. My heart is bursting just writing this review because everyone and everything was so amazing. Don’t hesitate to book this band, it will be the best decision you make.

  • Booked Hot Mess for our wedding on 8/24/19. I can't get over how much fun this band was. The dance floor was packed all night and we had received complements from everyone saying how great they were. The band was interactive in the crowd with the horns section and the singers coming out. Never annoying or in your face but just building up the energy! Jason was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. We had jumped on a call to go over the whole night and what we had hoped for. We were a little picky with what we did and didn't want to hear and with just a few questions from Jason he had come up with the most perfect set list. The band learned two songs for us and they sounded even better than the originals. Our first dance song we wanted to give a little twist from the original and Jason was nice enough to give us a sample of how they would play it so we could practice dancing to it prior to the big day. 10/10 would book again!

  • If you're browsing bands for your wedding/event and you've come across Hot Mess but are worrying about pulling the trigger before you've heard the band live, trust us - just do it. We were one of those couples - music can make or break an event, it's very important to get it right. We booked Hot Mess for our wedding based on recommendations, reviews, and videos without having time to hear them live and we could not be happier that we did. Hot Mess exceeded our expectations in so many ways. After booking with Hot Mess and connecting with Jason, music went from stressful to beyond exciting. We were incredibly impressed with Jason's enthusiasm, professionalism, support and responsiveness leading up to our event. Jason provided us with a ton of suggestions and advice leading up to our wedding and made the process a lot less stressful. And then - the important part... Hot Mess ROCKED our wedding. They were fun, energetic, engaging, exciting, SO CRAZY TALENTED, and our guests RAVED about ... Read more

  • WOW!! Hot Mess made my wedding the most memorable night!! My husband and I have been to lots weddings that have had bands, but Hot Mess easily blew all other bands we’ve heard out of the water. Hot Mess is worth every penny and they put on a show – it was the best wedding decision we made! Our guests could not stop raving about the band and everyone was up dancing. Jason is the absolute best and is very responsive, upbeat and friendly. He will not disappoint! Do yourself a favor and book HOT MESS!!!
