John and his band are incredible! They were so kind from the first day we reached out to them. We had the opportunity to go and see the band play locally before our wedding and it was like a mini reception to get us excited for the big day! They were to invested in their music and the crowd, we knew we had picked the right band. They came over and met my family and our friends and made sure to play a few of our favorites that they would be playing at our wedding.

Before the reception John and I had a few phone calls back and fourth for planning and he was not only helpful in helping me decide on music but the general timeline of the evening. I didn't have a wedding planner, so hearing his experiences from past weddings helped make our night perfect!

Our family and friends were glued to the dance floor the entire night. I wish it could have never ended!! John and the Shine Band will be the only band you ever hire for an event again!

The best decision we made was having The Shine Band play at our wedding at the Scituate Harbor Yacht Club on May 14, 2016. They were absolutely fabulous! We HIGHLY recommend them! John was so accommodating to us from the first email we sent to the day of the wedding. So many guests commented to us how much fun they had dancing. Even friends and family who don't like to dance were out on the dance floor with us. We are so happy we chose to have a live band. The Shine Band really made our wedding a huge hit. Thank you again for making our day so memorable!!

After months of research, my husband and I independently arrived at choosing the Shine Band for our wedding ceremony and reception music. We both wanted a band that could capture the attention of ALL our guests, a mix of young adults in their 20's and older adults from our parents' generation. Shine really shines with their musical talent and YEARS of experience in the wedding industry. Leading up to the wedding day, we worked mainly with John Harris from the band, and he's PHENOMENAL. He's the most responsive vendor I've ever worked with, and he provided us with very useful tips and feedback on our wedding timeline. He was also very patient and went through many edits of our wedding timeline with us to refine our vision, which was incorporating some my Korean cultural details into the ceremony-- Shine's music was so universal and accessible that they even got my grandmother (in her 80's) visiting from Korea to get up and dance with us! Our dance floor was so packed the entire night that we felt bad for not having a larger dance floor! If you want a band that is pleasant and easy to work with, and is skilled at reading your guests and playing versatile music, the Shine Band is IT!

Plain and simple, this was the best decision my husband and I made for our entire wedding –except for getting married of course. The Shine Band not only surpassed all our expectations, but those of our parents and friends as well. People thought they’d be going to yet another DJ wedding, so the fun started the moment the band (flawlessly) played their first song. From that point there was no looking back, every selection perfectly fit the mood of the reception. We even had Shine play an extra hour. We did not hear them play live before the wedding, but came to realize that’s not completely necessary due to the wealth of their online music and info –and also because John the bandleader was so genuine in all our dealings with him. He made some key suggestions regarding timeline and music choice that were incredibly helpful. He really made us feel at ease with the whole process of planning the wedding. One of my favorite comments I got from a couple friends who never dance much was, “Wow, Killer Band!” –you almost had to pry them off the dancefloor…

We chose John Harris and The Shine Band to perform at our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding at The Langham – Boston on October 24th. That proved to be an outstanding decision that we will all remember the rest of our lives!

Initially, our daughter thought she would like a DJ, as that seemed more contemporary. We did check out several DJ’s that were recommended to us, but, we didn’t think the cost differential for a 1 or 2 person DJ with digital music versus the cost for a 5 or 6 person live band was worth it. We found several bands that had a high ratings but The Shine Band stood out on many levels. John Harris was most helpful and responsive to all our questions, via prompt email or phone calls. He offered to do exactly as we wanted, while at the same time, offering his earnest opinion of our choices. He made us feel so confident with his professionalism and friendly guidance, in effect, he became our ‘wedding consultant’. It was a pleasure to work with him at every stage and the cost was, in the end, a real value.

We wanted a dignified, elegant but fun reception. That is exactly what The Shine Band rendered for us and our guests! They are all high quality individuals and great performers. We had 6 musicians and they all sang and made it seem like a much larger band. We made a few selections but mostly they ‘felt’ the crowd and kept the dance floor full for all ages. Their excellence and dynamism made our reception a “happening”. All our guests had a ball, everyone agreed it was the best band and we are proud to have had The Shine Band perform at “our” wedding!

This is the first review I have ever done online, but, I felt I had to share my delight. I couldn’t recommend them more highly. If you hire The Shine Band, you won’t feel any differently than I do.

John and the Shine Band absolutely made my wedding day. From the beginning John was helpful and responsive to every question I had. They learned to play In Your Eyes for my first dance and every moment during the reception was amazing. They were extremely professional, they sounded amazing, and we have heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests. My father in law went to Berekely and still can't stop talking about what a great band they are. There are other bands in the Boston area that will charge you twice as much and deliver half the product, these guys are the absolute best.

The Shine Band is the best of the best for wedding bands! They made our wedding day and night unforgettable and so much fun. From their guitar and flute duo during the ceremony to the entire band electrifying the reception afterwards, they really know how to put on a great show! Plus I can't thank them enough for allowing my band who hadn't played together in 4-5 years to play a couple of songs for the guests. The entire process of signing them was so easy, and they were able to flawlessly perfect our requests when our big day came. Signing the Shine Band to play at our wedding was one of the best decisions we ever made!

My guests are still talking about our GREAT wedding band, The Shine Band!! They read the crowd really well and played spectacular song choices. They are very easy to work with and were willing to learn songs pretty last minute (only a week before our event). They are reasonably priced to begin with, but none the less worth every penny! I have already recommended them to several friends and would use them in the future!
