The Winiker Band was one of the best parts of our wedding. They worked collaboratively with our other vendors to make the day a seamless affair, and Bill essentially acted as the master of ceremonies to keep everything on schedule. Bill met with us months before the event to discuss the itinerary, our preferences and to make some suggestions of his own. The band was also extremely flexible to learn any songs that they didn't already know that were important to us. The end result was the dance floor was packed the entire night, with everyone from the older adults and young children enjoying the music. We've had a ton of compliments about the band from friends and family and would highly recommend them. We can't imagine our wedding without them.

For our wedding, having a great band was one of our most important requirements. We were absolutely thrilled to have Bo & Bill make our wedding so memorable! They were both personable and professional. They are walking encyclopedias of countless songs - perfect for us, since we have such diverse tastes in many styles of music. Our guests just raved about them. From the piano with classical flourishes during our ceremony, to the 6-piece band during our reception, they played for hours! They threw in music that spanned decades, even some new songs that were still hits on the day we got married.

When we originally planned our wedding with them, they contributed their vast expertise and actually helped us plan the different phases of the reception. They were very flexible, learning some custom songs for us and even letting the groom & best man join in to play a tune! They brought in different songs to fit each phase of our night, even staying a little longer because everybody was still dancing up a storm.

In short, the Winikers were absolutely fantastic and worth every penny. We highly recommend them!

We cannot say enough positive things about these wonderful brothers and their outstanding band. Bo and Bill genuinely love what they do, and their enthusiasm for music is infectious. Everyone loved them and they were the highlight of our reception. They are consummate professionals, read a crowd perfectly, and know how to choose music that suits the crowd and the moment. They listen to your desires and create a unique experience for you. And they LOVE doing it! I would use them again in a second!

The Winiker Band was truly the highlight of our wedding! They are simply amazing musicians with incredible talent (Bo's horn is just divine) and a wealth of experience entertaining audiences of all types. They know how to read a crowd and get everyone up and dancing. And if you prefer a different approach (such as quiet background music), they are excellent communicators and will listen to your needs. Over a year later, many of our guests continue to comment on the amazing band we had at our wedding. We continue to get out to hear the Winiker Band play live at every opportunity. We love their music and Bo and Bill are always just wonderful human beings. I hope we'll have a reason to hire them again soon!

Winiker Bands is the best in Boston!

My husband and I were recently married at The Seaport Hotel Boston on September 1, 2012---- our wedding day was perfect!

When it came to hiring Bo Winiker of The Winiker Bnads, it was a no brainier. I have been a wedding photographer (www.bkbphoto.com) for over ten years in the local industry and have worked with the Bo and his band throughout the years; I have always enjoyed their music and highly personalized service.... fast forward to my wedding-- Bo and his team provided the most elegant and fun music we could have ever asked for See a highlight clip from our wedding here: http://vimeo.com/49884013

Bo and Bill Winiker were so easy to work with! They were flexible on our music selections and made it clear they wanted our day to be special. They made sure they were able to pronounce each name for introductions--- that impressed me!! They were professional and their music performance was an amazing experience!

Our guests of all generations were speechless over the music from Frank Sinatra to Black Eyed Peas. In fact, some older guests mentioned to me "You have Bo Winiker here.... WOW! He's a Boston staple."

As a professional who is embedded in the local wedding community, who knows the in's and out's of a wedding day, there are many bands in the area, but when it decision time for music on YOUR BIG DAY, the choice is simple--- Winiker Bands. They will not only go above and beyond, they will play music that reflects your style that will captivate you.

We couldn't be more pleased with Bo and Winiker Bands! We look forward to referring many weddings to use their service!!

They were a wonderful wedding band! They kept everyone on their feet dancing the whole night. The hora went on for about 45 minutes. Guests were saying that the hora was the longest one at a wedding that they have seen. Guests were complimenting how the band was wonderful and were very friendly. I would recommend this band for an occasion. They are wonderful people to work with.

Bill Winiker's band made the wedding memorable and two months later guests still can't stop talking about how much fun they had. From relatives who never dance but stayed on the dance floor all night, to the numerous non-stop contemporary song sets, and even the guest who surprised us with a group serenade--and Bill taught the band the music on the spot so they could accompany the group-- everything was wonderful. Your guests will truly have the time of their lives (and so will you!) with this band.

Working with the Winiker brothers was such a pleasure. They were kind, responsive and understanding to our needs. My wife and I had a traditional Jewish wedding and our guests were expecting a joyous horah and traditional Israeli music. Many at first were skeptical of the Winiker's ability to provide and told us we should look into brining up a band from NY but they were all wrong. Bo and Bill provided us with wonderful music, they had everyone dancing for hours and when they seamlessly switched from Jewish music to modern dance music continuing the party for a long time- everyone left with their feet aching from dancing so much. If you are getting married in Massachusetts make sure you check out the Winiker band they are wonderfully priced, professional, and really just great musicians to work with.

My husband and I are both military and were planning a wedding in Boston from across the county. As a result, we knew that our wedding was a difficult event to coordinate. Regardless, Bo Winiker worked with us to plan every detail of the wedding timeline, took specific music requests, and even learned several songs for the "Father-Daughter" and "Mother-Son" dances. The band's energy, musical talent, and ability to read the crowd truly drove the event and made it a success. We highly recommend the Winiker Band for any bride and groom wishing to make their event unique, tasteful, professional, and enjoyable to a wide range of guests. Specifically, their ability to play a variety of genres kept everyone participating from the beginning of the reception and well into the night. Finally, make sure you request Bo to sing Louis Armstrong - he was fantastic!
