  • I cannot rave enough about Charlie and the band! They are true professionals, extremely talented and know how to take any party up a notch! For my husband and I, the band was one of our number one decisions -- it was super important to us to have really great live music, and Search Party truly delivered. From the beginning, Charlie was so responsive throughout the entire process. We also had a few special request and he was more than willing to help out, sending us MP3s of our first song in the way his band would play it so we could practice and working with us to pull off a surprise, choreographed family dance to get the party started. From the moment they first started playing until the wedding ended (at 12 am!) the dance floor was PACKED. They also didn't take a full-band break at any point (except for dinner maybe? but even then I didn't notice...) so there was not a moment without music the entire night. It was seriously epic and we got sooo many compliments on the music after the... Read more

  • Search Party was awesome to work with leading up to the wedding (we worked with Charlie, who was great) and made our wedding day SO much fun. They learned 2 songs we asked them to learn, including a song for the father daughter dance, and are just an extremely talented group of professionals! The energy they bring to the dance floor is amazing. Everyone commented on how much they loved the music and the band. Totally recommend working with them, you can't go wrong with them!

  • My daughter's wedding was perfect in every respect; the Search Party played a big role in it. Nearly every guest danced all night - the selection of music and musicianship was complemented by their enthusiasm and personalities. A have another daughter getting married this summer who insists on having the Search Party at her wedding too.

  • Search Party played at my wedding this past October and they were absolutely incredible! They were very responsive and flexible leading up to and throughout the day. Their song list covers everything you can dream of and their performance the entire night was amazing. They were even able to play our ceremony/cocktail hour at the last minute and were able to give my mom a few moments to speak when she randomly decided to. Very professional, talented, and lovely to work with. Made the day as great as we had hoped, and more!!!

  • I didn't want a band because of the price, but very glad I listened to my bride. So many of our guests told us it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. Everyone was out on the dance floor the whole night. We listened to several other bands before we chose the final vendor, and Search Party was the best. Charlie is a good guy to work with and communicated with us on a timely basis and it was smooth sailing the whole way. Thanks for being an integral part of the best night of our lives!

  • We first saw Search Party at my cousins wedding in 2015, and we fell in LOVE. Once we got engaged, we knew we wanted to have them at our wedding. Thankfully, Search Party was able to make the trip down to Southeast Connecticut and blew the roof off the place! Honestly, Charlie and the band were so easy to work with throughout the process. They were so accommodating for the first dance songs as well - learning ours and playing it beautifully, as well as learning a piece my Dad wrote for our Father/Daughter dance. And they listened to our request to play a lot of fun, dance filled oldies to encourage the whole party to get out of their seats and onto the dance floor...and that's exactly what happened! Every one danced the whole time and so many people said they were the best wedding band they had ever heard. I honestly can't say enough about how amazing they are, and how special they made our day. So talented and so much fun!

  • We loved Search Party at our wedding! They made the party great. All the guests danced and everyone commented on how much fun the band was! They were even accommodating with special requests, like switching up lyrics and allowing the bride to sing a song. You will not regret selecting this band!

  • I just wanted to Thank Charlie and the Search Party Band for performing at my daughters wedding this past weekend (6-8-19). Each musician individually was exceptional and as a unit the talent is undeniable. All the singers were just incredible. Sarah, Neph and the trumpet player (sorry, I did not know his name) have voices that will truly leave you wanting more when the evening finally has to draw to a close. Search Party has a large repertoire of songs from which to draw. One can select each song, a direction or genre, or just go with the flow of the evening as we did. I know the band plays at a lot of events and one may blur into another but their performance at my daughter's wedding was truly stellar. Everyone asked who the band was and couldn't stop talking about how great the band was. I know our wedding was a smaller one at the City Winery but I believe there is no substitute for live music. I would not hesitate to see this band perform in any forum. The band really made the... Read more

  • Search Party was incredible. The band literally lit up the dance floor and I've only heard rave reviews from all of our guests that were in attendance for our wedding. Charlie was more than accommodating in schedule, songs played and overall providing comfort that they'd provide a stellar experience for the night. I'm trying to think of excuses for parties to throw just so we can have them again!

  • Search Party was the best choice we could have made for our wedding at the State Room in Boston. The dance floor was packed all night long! We are still getting complements about how amazing the music was, and everyone was thrilled with the selection. Thank you Charlie and the rest of the band for an unforgettable night, we are forever grateful!

  • Hiring an amazing band was very important to us... it was so important, we decided to find the band first then pick our date! We saw many bands in the area, but as soon as we saw Search Party - our search ended - we knew right away that they were the band for our big day. Leading up to our wedding, Charlie was always extremely responsive and answered any questions we had. We were so impressed he even visited our venue before to ensure the best set up. Just a true professional. At our wedding, every single member of the band was incredible. They are all very talented. Not only were we impressed, our guests said it was the best band they have ever heard and we have been asked for their contact information. We also had the piano at our ceremony & the jazz trio at our cocktail hour - just WOW! It was just a nice touch to our wedding and so fun to listen to them play. Knowing how much we loved the entire band before our wedding & how they have been together for a very long... Read more

  • Search Party brings it all night long. From the first note to the last, the band had everyone on their feet. One of my favorite memories from the day is the sound of the horns at the beginning of our first dance. This eight-person band has a good mix of instruments and tremendous vocalists. We were looking for a band that had horns, was not too big, and also had two vocalists. Search Party fit the bill and had rave reviews. Our guests could not stop dancing and have not stopped talking about how great Search Party was. Additionally, Tom Pendergast played acoustic guitar during the ceremony and cocktail hour. This was the perfect accompaniment to our garden wedding. Thank you, Search Party! We highly recommend hiring Search Party!

  • Search Party went above and beyond to make our wedding day remarkable. From day one we were very impressed with this band. When I reached out for more information Charlie responded so quickly with all the information we needed. He is super prompt and professional in his emails and phone calls. We got to see the band play at a studio very quickly and instantly loved the band. Charlie was awesome, after we signed our contract we booked a walk through of our venue. He told us about how they would setup and more about how our venue would be for the band. They have you fill out some paperwork to so they have a layout of the wedding day and Charlie called two days before the wedding to run through everything with, even that he was pronouncing everyones name right! He is full of amazing tips and advice as well and is always 2 steps ahead of you. Then comes wedding day and just wow. The band is amazing and filed with such talent. They kept our guests out on the dance floor all night! They are ... Read more

  • At least 1/3 of the guests as well as the bride and groom are professional musicians and all agreed that Search Party was the very best wedding band they had ever heard! As one of them said, they were tasty and tasteful. !!!! If you are lucky enough to book them for your wedding, you’ll have an event that will keep people talking for years to come.
