When we first set our date it was dependent upon Bo & Bill Winiker's availability...I wouldn't have used any other band. They indeed were available and the planning began. Yes they were they first people we reached out to! Between us, Music was the 1st and 2nd priority for our day. We were so very happy with the personalized nature of Bo's approach and how much heart he put into making sure our day was perfect. He even learned a very special song for us and trust me it was not easy. I cannot tell you how many people raved about the band and everyone was dancing for hours. You can't go wrong with the Winiker's! We love them :)

Although I have been away from Boston for some 25 years, when it came time to plan my second wedding, my first choice was the Winiker Band. I had been a big fan of theirs in my twenties, when they had a standing gig at the Parker House. We were delighted that they were available for our date. They not only provided music for the ceremony, they served as emcees for the evening. Their inimitable sound, knowledge of the classics, and good natured humor made the evening a success.. Bo and Bill have a singular ability to read the crowd and adjust tempo and style accordingly. I gave three specific requests, first dance: Opus #1, Bewitched Bothered and Bewildered to honor my parents, and It Had To Be You to honor Cynthia's mom. The rest I left to the Winikers. The dance floor was full all evening, a measure of success in my book. I enthusiastically recommend Bo and Bill Winiker to anyone planning a wedding in the Boston area.

Bo, Bill, and their band were just FANTASTIC! We had heard such good things about them before the wedding (which is why we picked them), but the event itself and their performance blew us away. It was everything my wife and I had hoped for and more. The energy and pleasure they put into their shows is phenomenal. This, as well as the music, were instantly addictive amongst the guests. Afterwards, family and friends kept telling us how fun the dancing had been and what a kick they had gotten out of it; the band was a huge hit. Yet I also want to mention what great people they are. They spent time with us preparing beforehand making sure that everything would be exactly perfect. We even asked the pianist to perform a special, unique song during a reading for the ceremony and he did so brilliantly, adding a personal touch that makes all the difference. In addition, their friendliness made the whole process a joy. We could not have asked for better; THANK YOU Bo and Bill!

When planning our wedding, we did not know of weddingwire.com but were still lucky enough to find Bo and Bill. They hardly need this review on top of the countless perfect scores they have already received from other satisfied brides and grooms, but I will add just one more.

We wanted the best band we could find for our wedding. Bo and Bill's lifelong training, experience, and accolades in music and performance make them the obvious choice. They have an extensive and timeless repertoire, and the guests absolutely loved the music.

Bo and Bill are also wonderful to work with on a personal level. They are very responsive, warm, calm, patient, easygoing, and flexible. Not only do they know how to play music, they know how to effortlessly play a room. We were also very lucky that Bo and Bill were willing and able to incorporate the wonderfully talented and equally acclaimed Amanda Carr - whose music can be found on iTunes - into the ensemble, as she was our first choice for female vocalist.

I have seen some reviews here speaking to cost. To that, I would say that we, too, looked in to different options, and the cost for this band was not much more, if at all, than others. Also, we are firm believers that you get what you pay for. Any difference in cost between this band and any other is absolutely worthwhile for the quality and service - especially for such a special, once in a lifetime event.

We anxiously await another opportunity to hire Bo and Bill for another spectacular evening.

Bo and Bill are not only great musicians but truly wonderful human beings that radiate genuine positivity. When my wife and I met them at the Waltham Westin Hotel for their weekly Sunday Jazz Brunch, I was amazed and stunned at the diversity of music that the band performed. Bo also sang "The Rainbow Connection" at the brunch. My wife and I were extremely touched and moved by his performance and so were other people in the audience that day. Right then and there, we knew we had the perfect band for our wedding. They are so extremely talented that they were open to playing any song from any decade that you could think of. They were so open and so talented that it helped me to find the courage to sing at my own wedding. They were also very flexible and accommodating on how many members they would include in their wedding band. I had not really performed since singing a cappella in high school. If you do end up choosing a band for your wedding, I cannot think of a better one than the Bo and Bill Winiker Band.

Bill and Bo Winiker were terrific to work with! They were super knowledgeable about songs as well as event logistics due to their 50+ years of experience, and were very flexible and willing to work with our other reception vendors to ensure everything went smoothly on our wedding day. From our first meeting with them, they were eager to listen to what we had to say and to guide the planning process in a very collaborative, confident, and positive way. Bo was impressively efficient in replying to emails (consistently writing back in less than a day, if not within a few hours!) and both Bo and Bill were always very professional and eager to please. They are a great team and their band has a wonderful sound. No matter where they are playing, they always look like they are having a great time doing what they do, and that energy definitely comes through in their music. I was concerned about the 5-piece band being too loud at the reception and that our guests might have a hard time talking over the music, but Bo assured me that he would be able to monitor the volume of the band and adjust it as necessary so that this was not an issue. Sure enough, the music volume and styles were excellent and he did a wonderful job matching the dynamic of the music to the dynamic of the reception. My husband and I are swing dancers, so we felt strongly that we wanted to make a great choice for music for our reception; the Winikers happily fulfilled this desire even more than we could have hoped for with music that everyone could enjoy. Many of our guests commented on how great the band was and what a good time they had. They are a bit expensive, but it was well worth it, especially after seeing what an amazing performance they gave at our wedding. We're so glad that we chose to hire the Winiker band for our wedding reception and would highly recommend them!

The Bill and Bo Winiker Band was amazing!! They learned a bunch of songs for our wedding, some of which were not very common/well known songs, but very important to us and our families; they killed it and everyone had a blast! They were so animated, which helped people to get up and dance.

Working with them for planning the sequence of events was very pleasant as well. They had very good ideas and accommodated our requests. Bill and Bo are very attentive to detail and try to make your wedding even more special! The band is very friendly and everyone is great; probably the most attentive, sensitive, and enjoyable group I know!

Bo + Bill were the perfect addition to my intimate wedding ceremony! They provided ceremony + cocktail hour music... most importantly, the assured me they would be able to make it in spite of my wedding day being on an official snow emergency in Boston! They arrived early and I thankfully had nothing to worry about. I highly recommend Bo for any event!

No need to look any further...Bo & Bill Winiker Bands/Winiker Music are the best!! We are an older couple who have been through the process before, so I feel we can tell a good band from a great band. They are a great band!! From the beginning, they made the process so easy. At the first meeting, we arrived late and a bit harried, but Bill had a calming effect and made us feel like everything would go smoothly (which it did). We suggested a few "must have" pieces and from that they were able to really understand our style. At the wedding they played a variety of romantic, religious and sentimental music. Our guests raved about them!! Bo and Bill were so down to earth, they made this special day in our lives complete with their beautiful music. We thank you Bo & Bill so much!

Both my husband and I agreed that having an upbeat, classic band was essential for our wedding reception. We wanted people on their feet all night and that's what we got! There is no better band than Bo and Bill Winiker. They played at my parents wedding 35 years ago and are still rocking today. It was a no brainer to hire them for our wedding in November.

Easy to deal with, professional and flexible, it was a joy to work with the Winikers. They even played our ceremony and learned Little Martha for us! Our guests are still talking about the music from that night and so are we. Thank you Bo and Bill!
