  • My interest in Howl2Go initially peaked because it was actually well under out budget for live music at our wedding. I was intrigued, as I had frequented the Boston bar location multiple times and was unaware that they performed at weddings, as well. The more I learned, the more I grew excited. Emily was an excellent administrator, answering all questions and addressing concerns along the way - excellent customer service. Fast forward to the day of. I could not be more pleased with the quality, talent and sheer entertainment that the musicians delivered - they were phenomenal. Countless guests (including several "music snobs") came to tell me during and after the reception just how impressed they were start to finish. If you're considering live music in Boston and do not want to pay $10,000 for a 7 piece band, choose Howl2Go (I had an extra guitar and drums which made a huge difference). You will not regret your decision, I promise.

    Thank you so much for your kind review, Elizabeth! Emily truly enjoyed working with you and we were honored to be a part of your special day. We are delighted that we impressed even the music snobs at your wedding!

  • Emily and Jordan rocked our wedding! Emily was my go-to person during the planning phase and was very responsive and helpful. On our big day, her and Jordan worked with our wedding planner to make sure everything went smoothly. Their singing, piano skills, music selection and announcements were exceptional and exceeded our expectations. Our guests are still talking about how much fun they had dancing at our wedding! In fact, one of our guests already booked Howl2Go for a retirement party.

    It was an absolute pleasure to party with you and Jason in Naperville, Megan! Thank you so much for having us perform for you and your guests. We especially loved your eclectic music tastes - everything from Pitbull to Pete Townshend! Wow! Sending best wishes to you both from Emily & Jordan :) :)

  • Just had Howl2Go at my daughter's wedding last weekend. They were awesome. Very easy to work with, attentive to our needs and the dance floor was packed from start to finish. Everyone there mentioned how they loved the entertainment. Tommy was our go-to for the evening and was amazing! Also provided live background piano for the cocktail hour outdoors.

    Thank you, Constance! Your daughter looked beautiful on her special day and the wedding was amazing. The dance floor was indeed packed, and the energy at the party was infectious. Tommy really enjoyed working with you. Thank you again for writing such a lovely review!

  • My husband and I loved having Howl2Go at our wedding, and so did our guests. Emily was amazing to sign up with and organize and very quick to respond to any concerns I had. Tommy was our lead musician and we could not have loved him more. I had a call with him the week of the wedding to talk details and he was so willing to help and genuinely excited to be a part of our day. We used Howl2Go for our ceremony music as well and it was such a nice extra touch to our day. The band for the reception had the greatest energy, we had the dueling pianos and added guitar and drum players. They took no breaks (not sure how they keep up the energy but they did!) and played such variety of songs while making sure to satisfy our requests. The value you get for the price of the band cannot be passed up and it's so different from any other wedding I've ever been to. My husband and I would recommend a thousand times over!

  • We were so pleased with Howl 2 Go for our brewery wedding in July. From planning the event to take down after our ceremony was over, the team at was super accommodating, professional, and personable. Our guests felt as if they were attending a rock concert at our wedding and were in awe of the players skill and entertaining personalities. Everyone loved that they were able to control the songs by requesting their favorite music and then having it played. I've been recommending Howl 2 Go to my friends for their weddings and private parties as well as I was so thrilled by the awesome experience. Even my older guests were up dancing and singing the night away! Special shout out to Rachel who blew us away with an amazing cover/mash up of our favorite Lady Gaga songs as well as Tommy for killing it on the guitar! You guys were amazing! Big thanks also to Emily for helping coordinate everything so smoothly!

    What a great location for a cool wedding! We had such a great time with you, your friends and family. You guys all came up with some great song requests and it is always fun for us to have a full dance floor from beginning to end. Thank you again for having us and we hope to see you again soon :)

  • My husband and love Howl at the Moon, so we decided to make the plunge to go with Howl2Go. They exceeded every expectation we had. We chose the live music for cocktail hour- which Brian KILLED!!! Then we chose the two pianos, guitar, and drums for our wedding reception of 200+ people. Emily, the coordinator made the process smooth and never left us with any questions. She was efficient, friendly, and organized. Even with a few bumps along the planning process, because of the venue, Emily and Wes made everything we envisioned possible. The band was amazing, and when I say amazing I mean out of this world. Brian and the guys were professional, full of energy, and the dance floor was never empty! Choosing Howl2Go for our wedding band was the best decision we have made, we had people raving (and still complimenting) us on the atmosphere Howl2Go created. I can't thank them enough

  • What an amazing experience of having dueling pianos at our wedding. They sounded like a real band. Our players brought so much energy and kept people out on the dance floor. They implemented all the special dance songs and requests we asked for. It was a little nervous not knowing exactly who our players were until about 1.5 months before our event, but rest assured they are all amazing and so talented. We got so many compliments on how creative to have dueling pianos. We are so happy we went with Howl2Go!

  • I absolutely would recommend Howl to other couples for their wedding. Kate and I wanted to have a live music experience at our wedding, but with the variety of music selection similar to a DJ. Howl is the perfect group to do this as their artists can play any genre, and even more importantly read the room to get the guests involved on the dance floor. Our Howl artists absolutely crushed their performance, at no point in the night were people not out on the dancefloor. At one point in the night, Kate and I got up on the stage with the players and jammed out with them tambourine and cowbell style. The lead-up to the event was pleasant and painless, all we had to do was provide general info about our guest demographics, the vibe we were going for, a couple of key songs and they took care of the rest. Hiring Howl for our wedding was top 5 one of the best decisions of the day. Period.

    Hi Lane & Hi Kate!! We had a blast with you guys and thank you so much for having us come out to Manhattan to party with you and your family! You were both an absolute pleasure to plan with and everyone sharing your big day was ready to party! Thank you both again and congratulations from your performers, Paul & Lauren and all of us at Howl2GO!

  • Hiring Howl for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. In terms of a live band, it was the best price for the most varied and customizable music playlist. Emily felt like a wedding planner she was so detail oriented, proactive, and helpful. I had no doubts (and I am a worrier!) because she was so professional and reachable throughout the entire planning process. Last minute, we wanted to add a horn to the band, and seriously like a week before the wedding they made it happen. We are so thankful for this team! The reception was so fun, the band was amazing and everyone had a blast dancing the entire night. They incorporated all of the songs we requested, even the obscure ones, avoided the songs we didn't want played, and handled the first dance songs for us. The day of went SO smoothly thanks to Wes and the entire band. They were setting up for the ceremony, and it started to sprinkle so they asked what to do, and with no hesitation they re-set up inside. The rain st... Read more

  • Howl2Go was amazing from start to finish. Working with Emily was easy & she had so much great advice & help for a clueless bride such as myself. After seeing her & her fellow performer at my sister's wedding, I knew they would be perfect for mine as well. Our guests loved being able to request songs and the overall performance was mind blowing. I highly recommend for any event! Thank you for making our day so special!

    Thank you for the delightful review, Abigail! We were honored that you chose us for your entertainment after seeing us perform at your sister's wedding. It was splendid to be a part of your special day! See you soon, from the Howl2GO Team!

  • Howl2Go Dueling Pianos were an incredible addition to our wedding day! From our first inquiries, Emily’s excellent communication skills and prompt responses made coordinating the entertainment easy and fun and we knew we had made the right choice. Coordinating with the local players to select playlists for the cocktail hour, dinner, and special songs/announcements was exciting and so simple. John was extremely flexible with announcements and timing, not to mention a skilled player who kept the party going all night along with the other pianist and drummer! The live show kept us and our guests dancing, singing loudly, and continually requesting more. We didn’t want the show or the fun to end. Almost a week later, I’m still smiling and running songs and memories through my head. Our guests can’t stop telling us and others what an outstanding part of our wedding day Howl2Go Dueling Pianos were and we couldn't agree more! I would recommend Howl2Go to any couple looking to ...

  • Howl 2 Go was by far our favorite wedding vendor. We were quick to choose them originally as we're big fans of Howl at the Moon and we were not disappointed! We used Howl 2 Go for all our music (ceremony, cocktail hour, MC, recorded music during dinner, and reception entertainment). The planning process was super smooth- Emily did a great job keeping in touch with us and taking care of all the logistics. They brought all their own sound, lighting, staging, and music equipment and even brought separate equipment for the ceremony and reception (in two separate places) to avoid having to move things and set up again during cocktail hour. They also provided all the sound/ mics for our officiant and our speeches during dinner. The show was SPECTACULAR and many guests told us that they'd be using Howl 2 Go for their next events. Our biggest piece of advice is to upgrade to the 4 piece band- that way the musicians can switch instruments throughout the evening. We had a variety of pianos+drum... Read more

    Kacy - we are so glad to hear that we were your favorite wedding vendor! We love bringing the Howl at the Moon experience to weddings like yours. Emily was only too happy to help make your special day perfect. Wishing you all the best, the Howl2Go Team.

  • Howl2Go played at our wedding this December and we couldn't have dreamed up a better band! They were very easy to plan with, even up to two days before our big day. Emily and Jordan rocked it at our reception, keeping the dance floor full the entire reception. It was more of a splurge for our wedding, but was one of the best decisions we made. Definitely recommend!

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you so much for the gracious review, Chloe! Emily and Jordan thoroughly enjoyed rocking-out at your reception. It sounds like we met our goal of keeping the dance floor packed at all times. We hope we can come back and party all over again sometime in the future!
