  • The band was incredible! Everyone was dancing including folks who said they had not danced in years! I also appreciated how the band interacted with everyone and it added to the experience. Many commented that it was like being at a concert. We truly appreciated having the band at the wedding and they made it the great event it was.

  • We host a holiday party to benefit the Make a Wish Foundation of New Hampshire and "RARE FORM" has been our band every year - this band is the reason we have over 300 people attend the event every year. This band is incredible and I am always willing to provide a reference - please email [email protected] if you have any specific questions or need a reference.

  • Among the myriad decisions couples must make regarding their wedding day, perhaps none is more sigificant than the entertainment. Towards that end, selecting Rare Form to play at our wedding reception was, quite possibly, the single BEST decision we made and we truly can't say enough about the incredible performance they submitted. Leading up to the wedding, the Band Manager (Donna) was extremely attentive and responsive to our needs, ensuring every last detail was accounted for while also being extremely sensiitve to our needs and the overall vibe we were trying to achieve with our reception. We always felt like we were in the most capable hands throughout the planning stages. As for the wedding day itself, it could not have gone any smoother. Donna placed an unexpected (but much appreciated) call to us the night prior to ensure everything was set and confirm any last-minute details. It was an extremely personal touch that really demonstrated how invested the band was in our specia... Read more

  • Rare Form is simply spectacular! From the moment we heard the band play at the Boston Harbor Hotel summer concert series, we knew instantly that they were the band for us! They are high quality musicians who have a wide range of vocals - with an ability to play everything from Louis Armstrong to Black Eyed Peas to Cyndi Lauper ... and sound exactly like each artist/group! We would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to dance the entire night. They kept the crowd on their feet from the minute the reception started. The band and manager were very accommodating - I requested a special song for my husband since it was also his birthday. And the band learned and played the song to perfection! Thank you so much Rare Form for helping to make it such a special day!

  • Dear Donna & Band, When it came time for our middle daughter Janelle's wedding we had no idea where or when we would have the wedding...so many decisions to make with photographer, florist, etc etc . THE ONE THING WE DIDN'T HAVE TO EVEN THINK TWICE ABOUT WAS WHAT BAND WE WOULD HIRE!! RARE FORM was OUTSTANDING at our first daughter Jena's wedding!! Our guests are still talking about the DiCarlo/Lepore wedding 2 1/2 yrs later we are still hearing from guests "that was the best band ever, we had so much fun at your wedding!!!!! " Thank you RARE FORM, we can't wait to enjoy your unbelievable talent once again ! P.S. Did I forget to mention we have one more daughter who already agrees RARE FORM will be at her wedding some day too ! Maria & Joe DiCarlo

  • They played for my sister's wedding and really made the night. I can't say enough about how good they are. The dance floor was packed all night. They took requests with the bride and groom's approval and every song was great! A band is more expensive but worth every penny. All the guests raved about them. They responded quickly to requests and were consummate professionals. Highly recommend!

  • Rare Form was the single factor that made the wedding a success. Guest after guest commented on how great the band was. While it normally takes a while for the dancing to pick up at events like this, people began dancing before the salads were even served! Rare form provided a personal flair that completely suited our style and personalities. The band was very accomodating, professional and responsive to our requests. A+ all around.

  • Why this band isn't more well known in Boston, I simply don't know. We picked them because they sounded great, were among the more reasonably priced 8-piece bands we could find, and when we saw them at another function, the dance floor was full! The week before our wedding we saw them play at Rowes Wharf, and we knew we had something special when diners at the surrounding restaurants left their tables and started dancing! We weren't disappointed, and our guests are still talking about our band. We could not have been happier!

  • Based on the referral of a friend, we hired the Rare Form Band to play at our wedding reception. Six months later, we continue to hear rave reviews about our reception. We owe much credit to Rare Form for keeping their promise to have our guests on their feet and dancing as much as possible. The manager of Rare Form was accomodating and flexible from the planning e-mails through the reception - making it all very easy for us. The band has a music selection list beyond what any other band we reviewed offered. With it, we were able to select a mix of music from 70's to modern pop and from jazz to classical to Christmas music (for a December wedding). They played it all with style, energy and pizazz! One guest commented that it's the first wedding they've seen so many people dancing between the salad and entree course. Whenever the guests moved onto the floor, Rare Form responded by picking up the tempo. When the guest sat back down, the jazz/classical appropriate dinner music contin... Read more
