  • Kevin did an amazing job and went above and beyond what was expected. He played everything we wanted and incorporated different songs that went together perfectly with what we wanted. He was quick to catch would be luls during the reception and turned things up. He was very helpful in making sure everything was going smoothly. I would not hesitate to have him ar another event again.

  • Opa's Oompah Band was great to work with. The band leader contacted me before the event to discuss what was needed and even stopped by the facility beforehand to go over layout and other items. They were all very professional and courteous and provided the extra German flair our event needed!

  • We used Chris Culkeen as our DJ through the Music Company and we couldn't have been happier. Phil Steffens got me in touch with Chris, and was very helpful. And Chris was just fantastic. He was so easy to work with and so professional. Most importantly, he made our wedding so much fun! Everyone was on the dance floor the whole night, and we got so much positive feedback about Chris. My cousin even asked for his info to use for their wedding in September. They are reasonably priced, and certainly worth every penny. We would use them again in a heart beat.

  • I would refer anyone to the music company's services. The up lighter, dj and videographer were amazing! Loves everything about them! The photo booth was also a huge hit and had the best props that I've seen at a photo booth... Thank you for making my wedding perfect!

  • The MusicCo Team and especially our wedding DJ Kevin Sullivan were just so great to work with. Kevin did exactly what we asked during our reception with no surprises or hiccups at all. He both handled random guest requests and dilligently worked through our playlist ensuring everyone was thrilled with the music. He was fantastic.

  • It was a pleasure to have Chris Culkeen DJ for our wedding. We had multiple comments from friends that he was an excellent choice, and they were thrilled he listened to them and played their requests. Chris mixed a variety of songs we sent him with the requests from guests and had excellent transition songs in between genres of music we enjoy. We were confused that Chris didn't play the wedding party dance immediately after our first dance -- but happy with his reasoning & decision of order. He played the wedding party song later -- his reasoning was that the wedding party song was upbeat and would start everyone dancing after dinner. Excellent planning on Chris's part. It also highlighted our dance, as my husband and I danced to You and Me by Barry Lee Polisar, which is quite a different beat then our wedding party song by the "Today" by The Smashing Pumpkins. We were very appreciative of Chris's help and insight in planning the music. He is a very friendly, talented and easy go... Read more

  • I knew I wanted live music for my ceremony, but I did not know exactly what I was looking for. Phil was great, directing me to different examples on his site and connecting me to the musicians that would be playing at my ceremony. They were able to walk me though my selections and help me build a wonderful ceremony. The musicians were very professional and sounded great. Everyone at the wedding was impressed! I would highly suggest them!

  • We recently got married in April 2012. The Hawthorne Hotel recommended The Music Company for our DJ services. I believe I initially corresponded with Phil, who responded to me right away about my needs for a DJ at our wedding. He answered all of my questions right away and gave all sorts of different scenarios for what I might do for music for the whole she-bang: ceremony, cocktail hour, reception. We ultimately decided to go with our DJ Chris Culkeen to DJ the whole thing. He was so awesome. We met with him before the wedding and he and my fiancee hit it off like they were long lost twins or something. If your groom-to-be is a Boston sports fan, he will have no trouble connecting with Chris so he might actually enjoy helping you with that part of wedding planning. Just be careful - a lot of our pre-wedding meeting was the guys talking sports, haha!! Chris was so awesome - the ceremony music went off without a hitch, the guests seemed to enjoy themselves at cocktail hour and the recept... Read more

  • Phil Steffen and The Music Company did a great job helping me line up and coordinate and amazing band (The Manhattan Touch) and Elvis impersonator (Mike Viselli) for our anniversary party. Phil was very professional and responsive and was able to help coordinate an amazing line up of talent. Family and friends are still talking about how amazing the band and "Elvis" was. Thanks Phil for a great event!

  • The band we booked was fantastic. We held an Oktoberfest and asked for a band that not only played traditional music but also something that was more modern and that people would recognoze and be able to sing along to. I was told that this band would be exactly what I wanted. Although the band was great, it was not exactly what I had asked for. This , along with other technical things were an issue. Instead of working with this vendor, I should have just worked with the band and all of this would have been avoided before the event. The band was wonderful the vendor was the weak link. My last e-mail to him stated that i asked for something that these kinds of bands usually dont do. Wish he told me that before I paid him all the money.

    responded with the following comments.

    I think the main point here is that she loved the band. The other factors she mentioned are simply erroneous. You don't hire a german band to play other types of music, and this band actually does play jazz and dixieland, but you wouldn't expect them to play Christina Aguelerra or pop tunes. Secondly, I got her a fantastic rate on the band, which I represent exclusively, so she couldn't have gotten the band anywhere else or at a lower fee. I could have rebooked that date a half dozen times. I'm sorry it didn't work out for her.

  • Phil himself (and partner) provided the music for our cocktail hour and we also booked our reception band with him. He was extremely responsive to my frequent emails, and when we ran into an issue with the band, he was prompt and effective in getting it resolved. He himself played beautifully and longer than contracted-he continued to play into our dinner hour which was awesome!. I would recommend him to any brides looking for a reliable agent and musician who was also very fun to work with. Thanks Phil!
