  • Rare Form did an amazing job at our wedding at the Boston Seaport Hotel in June. Leading up to the wedding, they were super helpful in making sure everything was organized and this removed all stress from this part of organizing the wedding which was great. We weren't 100% sure what type of music we wanted, and we just gave them a general idea and they took that and ran with it and put on an amazing performance. Throughout the course of the wedding, we repeatedly received compliments from guests about what an amazing band we had found and how impressed they were with the different styles and sounds that a single band could pull off. Definitely would recommend to others, they are both friendly and talented and really put on a good show.

  • I would like to Thank Rare Form for making this the most memorable Anniversary party ever! Our Guests are still raving about how much fun they had! They were also very easy to work with and very accommodating to any of our requests. Any parties I have in the future Rare form will be my first call!

  • I am obsessed with Rare Form. They absolutely MADE our wedding. Anyone who is thinking of getting a DJ... STOP what you are doing right now, and get a band. Preferably, get Rare Form. They had everyone dancing- from our teenage cousins, our friends (mid-20s), and all of the "grown-ups." They played nearly every song on our play list and also learned a really tough to play song for our last dance. I am beyond excited for them to play at my sister's wedding next February!! Thank you Rare Form and Donna for being so incredibly professional and attentive since the day we booked them, about 15 months before our wedding!

  • I can't believe how long it has taken for me to tell you that RARE FORM WAS THE BEST PART OF OUR WEDDING! Seven months later, people are still talking about it. In fact, my sister is getting married next February, and Rare Form will be the entertainment! Seriously - every interaction I had with Donna leading up to the event, and the band on the day of, was fabulous. They played almost every song we requested, and even learned a very tough one as our "last dance." They kept every person - from teenagers to people in their 60s and 70s - on the floor all night. I can't say enough about how fabulous they were. Having a band instead of a DJ makes a one thousand percent difference in the feel of the wedding. Thank you Rare Form for being the absolute dream of a wedding band. We are obsessed!

  • Having Rare Form as our band was hands-down the best decision we made for our wedding day. Rare Form elegantly hosted our wedding and set the tone for quite the party. They were professional, talented and flexible. Rare Form played all the songs we asked them to and tailored their play lists to make sure all our of guests had a great time. We had the time of our lives and know that all our guests did too. So many of our guests still rave about Rare Form to this day. We couldn't be happier with our decision and we only wish we could relive the amazing day. It was the best day of our lives! Thank you Rare Form!! You guys rock!

  • Rare Form is THE best wedding band. They played at my brother's wedding 9 years ago, and was the first vendor I contacted when I was planning my wedding. I hired them for the ceremony. cocktail hour, and reception. They were extremely helpful in selecting the music for the ceremony and cocktail hour, and nailed every song they sang at the reception. They were fun and engaging and we received endless compliments from our wedding guests about the band. I was thrilled that they were able to play at my wedding. Thank you, Rare Form!

  • Rare Form was recommended to me by a friend who saw them perform at another wedding. I listened to them online, spoke to their manager, and decided that since I liked what I heard, I was going to book them without hearing them in person first. After i did, I was a bit nervous, but every time I talked to Donna, the manager, she made me feel great about them. They learned 4 special songs for us: our 1st dance; the father-daughter dance; the mother-son dance; and our last dance. Their voices are INCREDIBLE! they sounded a lot like the originals, but also put their own twist on it which made it even more special for us. I can't say enough incredible things about them! They sounded awesome, they complied when we asked them to dress formally to match the feel of our wedding, and they played every single song we requested that night. I had a 1 musician play the cocktail hour, which created a beautiful ambiance, and then the whole 8 piece band joined for dinner and dancing. Their music set the... Read more

  • Rare Form is an incredible band and I would highly recommend them. If music is an important element of your planned event, then you have to hire Rare Form. Guest at my daughter's reception at The Granite Rose in Hampstead, NH ranged from 14 to 83. Everyone was dancing all night long. There was no gender gap that evening. Rare Form has fantastic vocals, their sound is clean, clear and powerful. One guest stated " you hit a home run with this band. From their first song to their last, they were fantastic". They read our guest perfectly and the dance floor was packed all night long. Amazing band, Bob

  • Dear Donna, Thank you-thank you-thank you and Rare Form for making our wedding an incredible event that we will forever remember.  Rare Form and their music transformed the wedding reception from a party into a forever memory.  The music was simply incredible! All the band members were so lovely and truly a pleasure to work with.  Their upbeat, fun personalities were infectious - all our of guests commented on what a fun evening it was!  My husband and I were beyond impressed; we have already given out your contact information too many times to count. We are so grateful and will forever remember how lucky we were to start our first night as husband and wife with such wonderful music!

  • Absolutely Amazing!!!!! You know a band is amazing when no one, old or young, is sitting in their seat for the evening. Everyone was dancing and some even offered them extra money to continue playing into the night! By far the best wedding band I have ever heard and seen and have been lucky enough to have them at both my and my sister's weddings.
