  • When planning our wedding, we knew we wanted a band over a DJ. We wanted something different and knew a band was more our personality. After contacting over 25 bands, the Shine Band was recommended to us. John was easy to talk to with from the beginning. He answered any of our questions, we had and provided song recommendations as well. They asked so many questions ahead of time, that made everything the day of flow so much smoother! They kept everyone on the dance floor and played the right songs a the right time! We loved them and they were a hit with our family and friends. I would definitely recommend them to others.

  • The Shine Band went WAY beyond our expectations! We really wouldn't have had such an amazing wedding without them, December 2018. My wife and I have very different families who don't dance much. Not only did pretty much everyone dance –they didn't want to stop! The incredible variety and the way they moved from song to song was truly spectacular. Great musicianship! The band members were also approachable, and friendly all guests -including some cousins who kind of got "a little much" with requests :- ) They also knew when to keep things low key when needed, without forcing anything. All questions were answered promptly, John the bandleader was easy to communicate with –and they were far more reasonably priced than others we contacted.

  • My wife and I from day 1 wanted a band. We did extensive research and read many reviews and settled on The Shine Band. They are absolutely fabulous. We worked with John Harris who always responded in a timely manner. We asked them to learn a play an Ed Sheeran first dance song. They learned "How would you feel (Paean)" and played it flawlessly. I swear Ed Sheeran was at our wedding! We used the jazz ensemble to play during the 1st hour open bar and then the band came and played for the rest of the night. All our family and friends are still talking about how awesome the band was. We have recommended them to at least six other couples. They truly engaged the crowd from our 20 year old children and there friends to our 50 something friend to our 85+ aunts and uncles. You cannot go wrong picking this band for your wedding. Thank you John and the band for making our wedding fabulous. Very Sincerely Michael & Susan Mansfield

  • The Shine Band was simply awesome! We are so happy we booked a live band for our wedding. Each interaction with them was friendly, thorough, and they were considerate to our preferences. They made the process of understanding our music taste and the flow of the evening effortless. With their many years of experience, the band made excellent recommendations about points we had not considered that helped our reception flow smoothly. The Shine Band offers a wide range of music styles which helps them present a nice dynamic between dinner music and dance/party music. The band is fun and energetic and I’d strongly recommend them to anyone! If given the opportunity, I will definitely book this band again in the future. Nothing beats live music.

  • The Shine Band was a pleasure to work with, and they kept everyone on the dance floor all night! Our venue offered us an hour of piano music during our cocktail hour, and Shine agreed to incorporate the piano into their playing (which was so flexible on their part, and really sounded incredible)! John is a true professional who will guide you through the planning process. He told us when he was going to be on vacation while we were planning, and answered every email and call within a few hours. We can't thank them enough!

  • We hired the Shine Band for our daughter's New Year's Eve wedding in NH. Dealing with John Harris was a terrific experience. he was so pleasant and professional. He even offered to have the band play a new song for them for our father daughter dance purchasing the sheet music and creating an arrangement that fit our desired time frame. The level of the music was perfect allowing guests to talk if not dancing. the band played music that got everyone up dancing. Would highly recommend them without reservation.

  • We worked with John and the Shine Band for our wedding last month, and are so glad we did. During the planning process John was so thorough and quick to respond which was so appreciated. They even learned a new song for our first dance! Our dance floor was packed all night and we couldnt have been happier. Would definitely recommend!

  • The Shine Band exceeded our expectations 100 times over. Hands down one of the best wedding decisions we made! We had them for 6 hours at our wedding on August 19, 2017 in Newport, playing nice, light music during dinner to fun, party music post-dinner. John was so great to work with. He was super responsive and flexible with our schedule, making sure all of our needs were met (even our special request for Blues Brothers songs for my dad who LOVED it)! The instrumentalists are amazing, and the singers voices are incredible! Our guests could not stop talking about how amazing they were all night long (and still can't stop talking about it!). Their flow of music was amazing and kept people on the dance floor all night. We truly could not have been happier, and would hire them again in a heartbeat!

THANK YOU!!

  • We had The Shine Band play at our wedding on May 20, 2017 in Maine. They played for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. I spoke to John many times directly (VERY easy to get ahold of and communicate with!) He made me feel like the band truly understood our taste in music. They were extremely accommodating and willing to learn new music. (Which made my processional and the first dance meaningful). Now, their music was incredible. Each of the members had their strengths, when combined, created a full, vibrant sound. They gauged our guests perfectly, and played music to fit the vibe. Our wedding had many professional musicians (professors and performers) attending and they were VERY impressed in the quality of this band. We wholeheartedly recommend The Shine Band to anyone who wants superior musicians for their event/wedding!

  • The Shine Band played at our wedding in September 2018. They were fantastic! The band is energetic and knows how to keep the party going. We had a mixed age group at the reception and they had everyone up on the dance floor. We ended up hiring them for an extra hour. Our guests all commented on how great the band was. I highly recommend the Shine Band! Carol and Dave L.

  • We were absolutely thrilled with the Shine Band! They can play the old tunes and the new ones and everything in between. It was such a great mix of songs that kept our guests dancing all night long!! To have five band members that are fun, lively and talented really makes the event. They have great vocals (female (a nice tribute to Aretha!), country, rock, reggae) and a great sax player. Everyone thought they were fantastic.

  • The Shine Band kept our dance floor packed the whole night! Our guests had a great time and had many wonderful comments on how our band helped keep the party going all night. The band catered to all ages and kept everyone from our flower girl, to our college friends, to my grandma dancing the whole night. The Shine did exactly as we asked in terms of plans and flow of the night. They made this planning process easy with their planning worksheet which we submitted to them a month ahead of time. I had full confidence in the band as they communicated regularly throughout the planning process and checked in with us to confirm details before the wedding. I highly recommend The Shine Band for their excellent customer service, trustworthiness, and ability to keep the dance floor packed.
