 Reviews for Big City Wedding Band

Word of mouth is the best form of advertising! Here’s what some of our clients have to say.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! What an amazing wedding all around, and it would not have been the same without Big City! You know how important the music was to us! Everyone commented on how phenomenal the band was... how you all did such a great job "reading the vibe of the room," how you had an appropriate mix of slow and fast, old and new, how much the energy of the music could be felt by everyone.... the compliments go on and on! We really could not have been any happier! How amazing was it that the dance floor was CONSTANTLY packed?!?! You really take pride in your band and it is clear from the overall performance that you have a lot to be proud of! Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special! 

– Colleen and Matt MacDonald
Capitol Center for the Arts; Concord, NH


Just back from a wonderful honeymoon and we are still smiling ear-to-ear thinking about our wedding. Thanks for making it absolutely the best! We heard from our guests RAVES about you and your sound (if you couldn't tell from all the dancing). I’d also like to mention that, as far as working with you goes, YOU are one of the major reasons we booked your band. We were not able to hear you live, but speaking with you on the phone helped me get a great feeling about you and your band. Thanks so much! 

– Kim and John Bronhard
Westin Hotel; Waltham, MA


Now that we are back from our honeymoon and the wedding is behind us I wanted to thank you for being the BEST wedding band I've ever heard!! I don't think I stepped foot off the dance floor all night! Our guests keep talking about you guys and how much fun they had dancing. You guys were fantastic! 

– Michele and Adam Bernar
Church Landing at Mill Falls; Meredith, NH


You guys did an excellent job. I had a ton of compliments on how great the band was; and I have since given out your information to a couple of my newly engaged friends that were there and really enjoyed the music you played. Everyone had an amazing time!

YOU GET AN A+ . YOUR BAND IS TERRRRRRRRRIFIC. ASHLEY AND MICHAEL ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF IT AND THAT WAS MY GOAL.THANK YOU AND YOUR BAND MEMBERS FOR BEING A PART OF THEIR SPECIAL DAY. NOW, I'M OFF TO THE CAPE FOR A WEEK OF REST!

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding! All of you did a great job! Everyone told us how wonderful you all were...and we thought so as well! Thanks again! 

– Ashley and Mike Pelczar
Wentworth by the Sea; Newcastle, NH


You and your band rock! You made our wedding the vibrant and enjoyable event we were hoping for and everybody loved it! Thank you for being so responsive and helpful throughout these last few months during the whole process... we must have driven you crazy!! I always felt like you listened to us when we were describing the way we wanted our wedding to go, but it became most evident on the night of our wedding when we saw how great it turned out. From the music at the ceremony to the very last dance, the order of everything went like clockwork, but best of all, we never had to wonder if our guests were enjoying the reception. We could barely find room on the dance floor to dance! Thanks again so much for everything. Please feel free to use us as a reference anytime! 

– Terry and Raymond Wiese
Private Residence; Sherbourne, MA


The band was outstanding! You delivered exactly the vibe we were looking for. You had the dance floor completely packed throughout night and clearly knew how to keep everyone entertained. I wish I had written down some of the compliments we received on you guys, everything from the vocalists to the horn section. Everyone had an amazing time, so I couldn't ask for much more. It was a total hit! I’d be happy to serve as a reference any time you like. 

– Caroline Griffith Edwards
Boston Public Library; Boston, MA


Just wanted to say thank you for this Saturday. The music was absolutely fantastic! Great talent and exactly the play list we were all hoping for. I know having someone fill in for a song can be aggravating, so thank you for letting me sing for my sister. Thanks again! We had such a great time! 

– Adrienne Griffith (sister of the bride)
Boston Public Library; Boston, MA


I want you to know that we have received TONS of compliments about your band! We could not have been happier with our choice… you guys helped make it the fun and exciting reception that it was. One thing my husband and I really wanted was for our dance floor to be full the whole night… Big City made that happen! You played songs that everybody knew and loved, and we have received SO many compliments from guests that attended the wedding. We were extremely impressed with the female singer… she was very talented, constantly had a smile on her face, and even when she wasn’t singing, she was up on stage dancing, having a great time!! We could not have asked for a better group of musicians! 

– Jill and Zack Colby
Private Residence; Lunenburgh, VT


Big City was definitely a BIG hit at our daughter's wedding reception on Cape Cod. The band had everyone, young and old, dancing and singing along throughout the entire reception. The musicians were great, the vocalists outstanding and everyone commented what a great PARTY it was. 

 – Tom & Kathy Burke (Parents of the Bride)
Nauticus Marina, Osterville, MA


Everyone says it’s the music that makes the wedding. You guys are certainly proof—your energy and song selection made our reception a blast. We had no idea our families could be so fun! With the time spent planning, your helpful suggestions, and ability to read the crowd, it felt like a custom fit—honestly, not one song we didn’t like! People had a blast, were literally BEGGING for more at the end, and have continued to comment on how great the music was. You guys were laid-back, classy and fun—we couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you for making our wedding an unforgettable day! 

– Greg and Kelly Flett
Nauticus Marina, Osterville, MA


Thank you so much for a wonderful, wonderful evening of music and dancing at our wedding!! We had so much fun dancing, and many, many guests told us during and after the reception how much they loved Big City. Some even said, "I don't usually get out on the dance floor, but the music really pulled me out there." Thank you also for being so flexible and willing to play for a wedding that followed a different format than usual -- we were very happy with the evening's flow. (And the special CD you made for during your break was an extra lovely flourish!) 

– Mariah & Hans Reinderbacht
Rock Garden Inn; Sebasco Estates, ME


Filipe and I want to thank you very much for the amazing job Big City did at our wedding! Everything went perfectly; from the announcements, to the formal dances, to the dance party! We couldn’t have asked for a better day. People are STILL talking about what a great band we had! You had all our family and friends, of all ages, up and dancing all night long, which is exactly what I hoped for! I will definitely be recommending you and giving your contact info to everyone I know who is having a big event! Thanks again for listening so well and giving us everything we asked for, I had the best time and wished we could have kept dancing until the early morning! :) 

 – Jennifer & Filipe Carvalho
Blithewold Mansion; Bristol, RI


We could not have been any happier! Guests are still RAVING about you. I would highly recommend Big City to ANY bride and groom looking for a great wedding band! 

– Erin and Sean Harrington

We can’t begin to thank you enough for your band’s performance on Saturday night…you guys were beyond amazing. In our eyes, the entertainment is one of the key components involved in making or breaking the wedding reception. It was pretty obvious that everyone was enjoying themselves… I didn’t see the dance floor empty once! We’re so happy with the way everything turned out and we will be forever grateful to you for everything you’ve done. YOU have been an absolute pleasure to work with, from start to finish. Should you ever need a recommendation, by all means, please contact us! 

– Kimberly and Phillip Belmont
Royal Sonesta Hotel, Cambridge, MA

Just got back from the honeymoon but I wanted to tell you that I thought you guys were great. I received a lot of feedback on how good the band sounded, the excellent choice in tunes played, energy created, and your ability to read the audience. People commented how versatile the band was, especially with vocals. I'm also pleased that you were willing to give Jean's relative from Ireland a chance to sing Sweet Caroline… that was appreciated by all. Thanks again for being so accommodating, I know it wasn't easy on your part with the set-up and location as well as with the logistics of events (building to building, etc), but I appreciate your flexibility and willingness to work with us. I’d be glad to act as a reference for you, if need be, for future prospects.

Thanks Ken! We had an AMAZING time at the wedding in large part because of Big City. Thank you so much (and thank you to the entire band) for your energy and enthusiasm and the great music that you played. We have gotten rave reviews from our guests! It's clear that you guys love what you do, and everything flowed seamlessly because the band was so flexible, responsive and professional. The dance floor was packed for the entire evening, not only with our younger friends, but with multiple generations of guests. You guys were awesome! You can absolutely use us as references anytime. Thanks again!! 

– Katherine and Mike Errecart
Hildene; Manchester, VT


BRAVO, you guys did a great job; I was on my way to see
 you when you got on stage to start your first set, and I saw the result on 
the dance floor. Your music was great, the female vocalist had a great voice, 
everything was perfect, and you were pleasant and easy to work with.

 Once again, YOU WERE GREAT, and I would hire you again ANYTIME; please convey my satisfaction and appreciation to your band members!

Trapp Family Lodge; Stowe, VT


Thanks for doing such a great job at our wedding! We thought you guys sounded fantastic the whole night and the dance floor was rocking the whole time. We've gotten lots of compliments about how good you were. Great Job!

Danielle and I want to thank you for making our wedding reception fun and memorable. All of our guests complimented us for finding you, but it is really not hard to tell them you are Boston’s best! 

– Michael and Danielle Burt

Thank you so much for the AWESOME music on our wedding day! Along with our guests we had a great time - thank you for keeping the party going until the very end! Also, thank you for the music during the ceremony and cocktail hour… it was beautiful. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to spread the word about how fabulous you are! 

 – John and Maggie Underhill
Museum of Science, Boston, MA


Thank YOU! Big City was fantastic, we received so many compliments about you! The band makes the party and you all certainly delivered. I’m just sad it’s over. Steve told me you stayed up there for the day on Sunday? I’m glad the trip was worth it…. It’s funny, lots of people thought we were crazy for doing this in VT in January, but as it turned out, most of them want to go back! Thanks again for taking the time to get to know us and for ensuring a great party!

Mountain Top Inn, Chittenden, VT


After a whirlwind wedding weekend and a relaxing honeymoon in Italy, John and I are back in the U.S. and back to reality. Thank you so very much for working with us to help make our day such a success, and the BEST PARTY EVER!! We've had many guests raving about you and your group- I think it's safe to say we will see you again at one of their weddings. You did an amazing job, that dance floor got quite a beating-- I warned you that we were a dancing crowd :) As for my dad, he had such a great time coordinating the father/daughter dance- yes, I was surprised! It was perfect :) You were a pleasure to work with, and you exceeded our expectations, thank you for everything! 

– Carrie and John Schlegel
Castle Hill Inn and Resort, Newport, RI


Wow, the day is over, and everyone had a FANTASTIC time. I heard lots of great compliments for you and your band! And, although I’m sure you always get rave reviews, may I just add to it…lighters lit and arms in the air waving back and forth…. Truly, thank you so much for learning Christopher and my song, it was beautiful. I am ever so grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I wanted to just send over a quick message to express how much fun we had at our wedding. You guys were great! You played anything/everything we wanted to hear and EVERYONE danced the entire night! What fun! We have been recommending Big City to all our friends who have been recently engaged… we hope to hear you again at future weddings! 

– Emily & Ian Adams

Ken - we had an absolute blast at our wedding - hugely due to your incredible performance! We watched the video last night and I can't believe the crowd of guests dancing all night long! Thank you so much for being so attentive to all of our requests. I will absolutely make myself available as a reference in the future. And of course, I will recommend your band to my friends and family! 

– Gina and Josh Ryder

I would like to thank you so much for making our daughter’s wedding so very special. Everyone commented on how wonderful you all were. Perfect band for the perfect venue. We would highly recommend you. Thank you so much! 

– Jean and Brian Anger (Parents of the Bride)
Mechanics Hall, Worcester, MA


Thank you so much for everything!! I cannot say enough about the band. You made the process effortless and made sure that everything was perfect. The female vocalist was so wonderful and also great to work with the night of the wedding. She made it very stress free. I have friends and family members asking if the band plays anywhere so that they could see them again. There really are no words to express the talent the band has, or the amount of fun we had. I am so happy that you were a part of our Wedding day. Thank you again Ken for making our Wedding day just perfect! 

– Jillian and Gino Alfeo
Mechanics Hall, Worcester, MA


Vinnie and I can't thank you enough for last night. The band was amazing and we have received so many compliments on how great Big City was - you set the tone for the entire reception! Vinnie and I always said that we wanted our reception to be a great party, and it truly was. Many thanks to you and the band for helping us achieve our goal!! It was a pleasure working with you! 

– Vinnie and Lynn Rossitto
Old Avon Farms Hotel, Avon, CT


We want to thank you for doing such a terrific job at our wedding. People cannot stop talking about what an excellent band we had and how the music was perfect! I am so glad everyone danced and enjoyed your music. It was such a perfect night for the both of us and you guys made that happen!
