#Style
With regard to our artistic approach to weddings, we like to consider ourselves to be the band that's most in-tune with the modern Bride & Groom. With the average age of our members being late-20s/early-30s, we identify with the latest wedding trends, and perform with that style accordingly. As our female vocalist likes to say – “It’s a rock concert in your honor!”

During the band's sets, we touch on the great "Ol'skool" R&B/Motown hits that will keep Mom, Dad, Aunt Edna, etc all on the dance floor and then transition throughout the evening into 80s-Current Pop hits like Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, The Biebs, Rihanna, Third Eye Blind etc... and rounding out the evening with Classic Rock hits from Journey to Bon Jovi and Van Halen.

#Philosophy
Our performances have one goal.. to make YOU feel like the ROCKSTARS on your big day! Every one of our shows always delivers a high-energy booty-shakin’ experience by blending together a perfect mix of Pop Rock, R&B and Dance music. Our professionalism, creative talent and sound lighting production will energize your guests and ensure that your event will be the success you always dreamed and envisioned it to be!

#Experience
Boston Common Band is the most awarded ‘Best of Boston’ wedding band. Comprised of recently graduates from the prestigious local music schools/programs of: Berklee College of Music, New England Conservatory, and Northeastern... We have had the opportunity to share the stage with artists from Earth,Wind & Fire, John Mayer, Lady Gaga, Jason Mraz, Ben Folds, Genesis, The Deftones, Usher, Nicki Minaj and many others.

I wish I had more then 5 stars to say how amazing Boston Common was. They ABSOLUTELY KILLED IT playing at our wedding! One of the most popular pieces of feedback we've heard from our wedding, (including the hotel staff) was not only how professional Boston Common is, but how blown away everyone was with their set. From the beginning of our planning we were adamant a live band makes a party, and they certainly made ours! I remember one part of the night looking around to notice most of the wedding was on the dance floor, which is always a sign of a successful event in our book. I would hire Boston Common again in a heartbeat - they were an integral part of making our wedding such a success!

Could it get any better than these guys? I mean SERIOUSLY!! I asked for a dance party, and I received the BIGGEST, FUNNEST and most rock star dance party of my life.. On the biggest day of my life! My wedding was a HIT thanks to these guys. There wasn't a minute that went by without that dance floor flooded with guests. Its been over 3 weeks now and people are still talking about how amazing it was, and i KNOW the entertainment was one of the biggest highlights. Working with them was a dream. The entire band, and DJ were extremely professional and worked with me throughout the planning to ensure a smooth process. They knew we were looking for a good time, and came to bring one! They were always available to talk leading up to the big day, and never were hesitant to respond to any of my emails! Great organization and communication skills across the board. I could never imagine a party without them! My word of advice to you all is book them now, these guys are going to make your night one to remember.. not only because there awesome, but because your guests wont be able to stop talking about them!!

Boston Common Band & DJ Shyne ABSOLUTELY killed it and wish I could give more stars! My wife Jen and I got married 10/29/16 at Saltwater Farm Vineyard and couldn't have had a more perfect wedding. All night long our guests were coming up to us commenting on how amazing the band was and if we could give them their information. Everyone was out on the dance floor all night having an absolute blast - the band and DJ really made our night so special! Jonathan, Jeff and the rest of the band were so pleasant and easy to work with throughout our planning process and on the big day. Their attention to detail was second to none and they made it their priority to make sure we all were having fun. BCB also learned our first dance and, oh my god, did they crush it - Jen and I were truly blown away. Can't recommend these guys enough - definitely use them!!!

Boston Common Band killed it at our wedding! They were recommended to us by another vendor and we are so happy we chose them for our big day. Having a combo band and DJ was perfect, they transitioned so well between playing live sets and the DJ. They bring so much energy to your day as well, they will engage the crowd in songs and sometimes some Michael Jackson dance offs!! They learned our first dance song for us as well (Van Morrison Someone Like You) and they sounded incredible. They can play a large range of music as well, our guests continue to tell us how much fun they had dancing and how amazing our band sounded. Their online system to help you plan out all your music is super helpful as well, the online system will allow you to chose must play songs and songs that you don't want played. Their set up is impressive as well, part of your package is lighting which made a difference at night and to make the dance floor really light up! Our wedding night ended with myself, my husband and my parents up on the stage doing a sing along to Journey with the band- it was certainly a night to remember. Definitely book this band- they were the best!!

Words can honestly not explain how amazing this band is. Prior to our wedding, they were by far the most unbelievable vendor to work with. They are quick to respond, answer any and all questions (honestly within minutes at times), and are unbelievably organized. They remind you of timelines, and ensure things on your end are done in a timely fashion ( so helpful to avoid the craziness of organizing details right before the wedding!). Even before the wedding day, I was so happy that we had chosen to work with this group. Things only got better! The band put on an unreal show. Their energy was high, their smiles were huge, their dance moves were on point, and they sounded amazing. They looked they had a blast from start to finish. Our guests (and us!) were on the dance floor all night. . You couldn't help it. Every single guest has commented on our band selection since our wedding. They want to know who they were and where in the world we found such an amazing group. I would rehire this band in a heartbeat.

I had NO idea when I discovered Boston Common Band how amazing they would be. We were guided through the planning process and the guys were pretty flexible about changes. Nothing could've prepared me for how incredible they were on the day of. They had everyone out on the dance floor the entire time they played (including all the little kiddos before the party even started). The talent and energy was insane. Yes, a good chunk of our budget went toward the band but the cost was in line with a lot of the other bands I'd researched. Every time someone brings up our wedding, the band is the main topic. Just the best.

What can Kate and I say that hasn't already been said by our guests...you all were absolutely off the chain! I can't thank you all enough for making the best day of our lives even that much more special, memorable, and downright fun! Tony, I know you said you'd reach out a couple weeks after our wedding with a survey or request for a review...but I simply couldn't wait any longer to contact you all and let you know how much Kate and I truly appreciate your efforts in making sure our guests didn't stop dancing all night! We will fill out whatever you would like us to, and give you a roaring review on any forum. Top 5 moments of the night involving the band:

5) Just before the ceremony, our 5 minute rehearsal which I didn't have time to be nervous for...went pretty well though, I thought

4) Dancing with my father like maniacs. He's 73, and was bouncing around like an animal and now needs to go to the chiropractor, but loved every minute of it

3) Our first dance together thru the first chorus, and then everyone joining us on the dancefloor. You played that song incredibly well, it sounded amazing. We'll never forget looking around and being surrounded by everyone we love dancing to our song.

2) Emily on Proud Mary...homegirl crushed it!

1) All of you making me feel comfortable on stage and rocking our 2 songs together. I think it was Chris who said to me at the end of the night "we've had grooms play an instrument, or sing a song, but never had a groom that rocked the party for 2 straight!" Thank you for making me sound good!

Below are a couple of videos of what we did together. Thanks again for an awesome evening, ECF!!

From start to finish the Boston Common Band were total pros!

My wife and I heard about the Boston Common Band through our wedding coordinator at Wychmere Beach Club (Harwich MA). We scouted BCB at the Landsdowne Pub in Boston last December. We were very impressed and quickly convinced (after seeing them crush Bruno Mars) these guys could bring the house down at our wedding.

The business end was very simple. Jonathan was straight forward in regards to their packages, addressed any our concerns, and was flexible to meet our needs. The band had played Wychmere before was very comfortable playing the Harbor Room. This was huge because my wife and I were concerned about the narrowness of the room. There was no issue what so ever. We had a 300+ wedding in the room and there were no issues.

DJ Tony was completely flexible and very attentive to make sure he got the name pronunciation and order correct. I also had a pretty particular selection of entrance music which he completely nailed. Having a Band and DJ combo is completely worth it. If your going to make the investment to get a band then you really should look at a package deal like Boston Common offers. When the band took a break - DJ Tony nailed it, there was no drop off in entertainment. Our requested songs were played and more importantly, both band and DJ were attentive to the "do not play list"

Of the 50 plus weddings i have been to, I have never seen a Band so engaging and accommodating to the crowd. The dance floor had zero breaks from start to finish. BCB allowed the bride and groom to sing a tune, an aunt sing to a grandfather/grandmother dance, and allowed the bride groom and groomsmen to close the night our own rendition of Piano Man. They didn't have to do that...but that's the fun of working with them. If we didn't have twenty pizza pies waiting for the wedding at a local restaurant down the street at the end of the night, our guests would still be there chanting one more song today.

Boston Common Band was absolutely amazing at our wedding! Our guests had a blast and are still talking about how great the music and performance was at our June 2016 reception. The dance floor was packed the whole night with all ages loving every minute! This is a high-energy, modern group who totally break the old "wedding band" stereotype. Jonathan and the crew were fantastic to work with throughout the whole process. They worked closely with us to help determine a timeline for the evening and offered great suggestions for how to work everything in and still keep the energy up. We felt totally at east going into our day knowing we had such a great team who would deliver a fun, flawless evening. They also offer a great online tool to create "must play" "would like to play" and "do not play" tracks for the evening. I highly suggest taking the time to do utilize this tool ahead of time as it helped the band/DJ learn our taste and style and really made the evening feel personalized for us. I would recommend this vendor 100x over for all area weddings!
