Lisa Love Experience
Lisa Love is an absolute riot and the best decision we made for our wedding. We saw her playing at a bar in Swampscott, MA and immediately fell in love with her energy and unbelievable voice. When we found out that she plays weddings, we booked her right away. We planned our wedding out of state, and she was so easy to communicate with and always responded to emails right away. She was attentive to all of our requests and learned a new song about 3 weeks before our wedding. At the reception, she kept everyone dancing the night away and people still rave about her. Thank you so much, Lisa!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE Lisa Love. Hands down the best band I have ever heard! My (now) husband and I have been going to see them play at venues for a few years now. When we got engaged, I just KNEW we had to book them.
They have a great variety of music and really know how to get a crowd going! I had guests who normally aren't "dancers" who were up grooving all night! Everyone said it was the best live music they've ever heard.
Lisa & crew are just fabulous to work with. I was very picky about a few artist's songs I didn't want to be performed and she was more than happy to oblige. The music was absolutely perfect AND she pronounced everyone's names correctly during introductions!
I am so glad we chose LLE for our wedding. Lisa had everyone up and dancing from the second we entered the reception, she had to remind people to sit down and eat because no one wanted to stop! Their prices are extremely fair, and they do an incredible job. Thank you LLE for making our day so much fun!
I knew from the second I got engaged I wanted a live band at my wedding and Lisa Love was the perfect match!! My husband and I watched her perform at Rockefella’s in Salem and it was without question that we HAD to have her perform at our wedding. Lisa’s energy is unreal and the band rocks the stage all night long. Lisa love is very professional and she is very easy to get a hold of. Any questions I had she would answer within a couple days and for a Bride that is so nice and comforting and she left me stress free! On the night of Sept 14th the LLE experience performed at my wedding and we danced ALL night long. From the second our first dance was done she had everyone up dancing on the floor...and I mean EVERYONE. I have relatives that couldn’t believe her energy and people raved it was the best wedding they have ever been to. When you are planning your wedding this is what you strive for and Lisa Love left me and my guest memories that will last us a lifetime. I cannot thank the LLE experience enough for making my wedding reception truly unforgettable.
We couldn't be happier with the Lisa Love Experience. Not only were they outstanding at our weddi g- they were wonderful to work with prior to the big day to ensure a smooth reception. Lisa is spectacular and made me feel at ease aboutanybparts of the reception that had potential to be stressful. Our wedding guests constantly expressed- "this is the best wedding band I've ever seen!" We would highly recommend the LLE- they exceeded our expectations and added so much to our special day.
I can't say enough good things about the Lisa Love Band. Our guests had an absolutely amazing time! Everyone was up on the dance floor before dinner was served and we were having such a good time that no one wanted to stop to eat.
Lisa Love belongs on stage - and she should be exactly there for your wedding. I heard of her when a friend, who works in a hotel that often hosts weddings, called me the morning after Lisa Love played. She told me that she was literally bopping around the gift shop (where she works) to the beat of what Lisa Love was playing. She added, that everyone she saw leave the reception hall was sweaty and many picked up a bottle of water with a side of ibuprofen on their way to their rooms.
Beyond the party that The Lisa Love Experience clearly creates, Lisa also becomes part of your party by engaging not only with the bride and groom (who had the PLEASURE and EASE of working with her all year long) but with all of your guests. So much of the feedback that I've gotten from the guests at our wedding revolved around how much they enjoyed the band. Actually, I can't believe how many people had a moment or two chatting with Lisa even though the band only took two 20 minute breaks.
My mother-in-law actually tried to write a review here but felt uncomfortable leaving an official post because the form requires you to certify that you signed a contract with the vendor. In her email to me she wrote, "if either of you plan to write a review for [The Lisa Love Experience] (which I hope you do...they were great), please add that the parents of the groom thought they were outstanding, played for a mix of generations, were fun, full of energy, enthusiasm, and the best band I've ever heard at a reception." To amend her recommendation - I will add that they have seen impressive wedding bands in the last few years.
If you are concerned with how the band sounds, which I'm sure you are, you should know that Lisa Love has serious pipes. She can sing a wide range of music from Michael Jackson to Adele to Louie Armstrong to Big and Rich and so on. Her keyboardist played for our ceremony. He was SUPER flexible and very helpful with song selection for the processional and recessional. Lisa is also married to the guitarist in the band. Clearly, they have a great connection. All of their sound and chemistry is great - but Lisa is the star of this band and she really can keep the crowd engaged for the entirety of the reception. We also saw the band play at a club. We had so much fun with them. We'll probably go back and see them somewhere in and around Boston again soon.
As far as cost goes - The Lisa Love Experience is affordable in comparison to other bands of the same quality. My only mistake was not having a five hour reception instead of a four hour one. You cannot go wrong when booking this band. Here's more as to why:
- Look her up on youtube. There are GREAT posts of her singing.
- I was initially concerned that the band does not include any brass. However, Lisa assured me that the pianist can compensate for that with the keyboard. To be honest - on the day of the wedding I didn't miss the horns. I'm not even sure that they had to use the keyboard to fill in those parts of some songs. So it really was a non-issue.
- If you email her she will write back to you SOOO quickly.
- They allowed my brother-in-law to play a song on their piano at our reception. (and he was not the only member of our family to get on stage)
- Lisa listened to my maid of honor when she wanted to put my husband and I up in chairs. Lisa immediately offered to play the Horah even though they hadn't planned on it. When my MOH said that it wasn't necessary Lisa listened to her. She is super flexible to both offer the set change and listen.
- Our reception was outside in a tent - they sounded great.
I know there is more I can write about The Lisa Love Experience. If you make the choice to go with this band you will not go wrong. I promise.
We had Lisa Love Experience as our band for our daughter's wedding on the Cape at Sea Crest Hotel. Everyone thought that they were the best band that they had ever experienced! We danced all night and even added an extra half hour to the evening because no one wanted to stop dancing to the music. They are wonderful entertainers and added so much to such a beautiful wedding day! We thank them for their professionalism and their creativity and reading the crowd that came to our wedding!
To Future Brides and Grooms,
We echo almost every comment written by others about the Lisa Love Experience. For us, our first indication about their greatness was when we tried to catch a sneak peak before our wedding. When we showed up at the first venue where they were playing (Scoreboard in Woburn), the line was very long! We decided to return for a second try at another venue and were sure to get on the list. Lisa's voice is powerful, energetic, and fun, and the musicianship of the band is top notch.
Leading up to the wedding, Lisa was prompt and attentive to all of our requests, including a special traditional Jewish song for our parents for marrying off their last child (we are both only children). She was able to talk through the timeline of the event and help us think about its pacing.
On the day itself, the music hit the right mood for each phase: cocktail hour, first dances, dinner music, and dance music at the end. We keep getting compliments from guests of all ages about how fantastic the music was. We won't give away every detail and surprise, but the band has a great way of keeping everyone involved, especially the bride and groom!

The Lisa Love Experience ROCKED my world on June 9th at our Barn Wedding. My husband and I have been following LLE for a few years now (mostly at Rockafellas in Salem) and LOVE their music and energy. We knew immediately that we would be having them at our wedding the moment we were engaged! When our friends heard that LLE was performing at our wedding, they knew they were in for a good time. Lisa is totally amazing. She is gorgeous and has the most incredible energy. You can not listen to this band sitting down. Even our oldest relatives were up dancing!!
She was perfectly in-charge the entire night. She knows how to run a reception, rule the mic, and keep the party going! She would check in with me periodically to make sure everything was going the way I wanted---to which I kept replying "I trust you! Just do whatever you want!". Because, I did! I did not have any worries the entire reception. I knew that Lisa was on the mic and in charge, so I was able to relax and party!
She took my husband and I "on stage" a couple of times to involve us in the craziness. My photographer got a few classic shots of me BELTING OUT "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"! Very funny!
The weekend after my wedding the entire wedding party and families headed to Captain Carlos in Gloucester to see LLE perform because we could not get enough. I am telling you, Lisa makes it seem effortless. The music is amazing. It is the perfect mix of old and new with the most amazing energy. You will NEVER be disappointed if you book this band. I have been told by countless guests, "You're wedding was the best! It was because that band was so amazing!"...I would like to think that I have something to do with it too....but I know it was really all because of LLE!
The Lisa Love Experience is an amazing band! We feel so lucky that we were able to book them for our wedding at the Crane Estate. If you want your guests to leave exhausted and to wake up hoarse but still singing songs the next morning, they're the band for you! Lisa exemplifies the strong female lead who has the range and vocal power to match her energy. We were looking for a band that would do a number of different genres with equal talent, and the Lisa Love Experience definitely fit that bill. If you had to peg them in a genre, 70s and 80s rock might be their bread and butter, but when they crank out Adele's "Rolling in the Deep," you won't be too worried about labels. I should also add that they really get how to cater to the crowd. In our situation, we had a mix of generations, and the band did a great job choosing music that appealed to all of our guests. We were extremely pleased that everyone was on the dance floor having a good time.
In addition to being awesome musicians, they were great entertainers. We've all been to that wedding where the band or DJ gets ahold of the microphone and tries to awkwardly whip the crowd into a frenzy, but it ends up feeling like a middle school sock hop. Lisa just rocks it and lets that create the atmosphere for her, but she adds to it in creative, completely fun ways. At one point she had me laying on the dance floor (in a tux) making fake snow angels, all while mocking my form and still belting out another classic.
We have had so many people tell us how amazing our band was. I should add that we found them very easy to work through logistics with, and also to be a great value. Of our three "finalists," they were the one whose music we liked the most yet who cost the least. This should be an easy decision -- book the Lisa Love Experience!!!

The Lisa Love Experience recently played at my daughter's New Years Eve wedding in Boston and they were just fabulous!
I want to write a review/recommendation on how we ALL loved you and the band and we've had nothing but compliments on how much fun and how professional you were.
All of our guests thought you were just awesome and played a great mix of songs for all ages. The dance floor was packed all night long and we couldn't have hoped for better, afterall....it's the band then food that make the reception a success, at least for the guests! And we hit a home run with you (and food too).
"The Girls Just Want to Have Fun" was a huge hit. Many folks asked if you and Erin rehearsed that ahead of time! It was so much fun to watch.
In addition to being a great band.....you were wonderful to deal with, so easy and very accommodating. A great experience all the way around! Would recommend you to any future bride and to anyone looking for a great band!
Hope to come see you guys soon.
Is there a web site I can go on to write a review? Please just let me know and I am happy to do so.
WOW! What can I say?! We've known the Lisa Love Experience from seeing them out in local bars for about 10 years now, so when it came down to them or the alternative, uhm..the answer was a bit obvious. Were such die-hard LLE fans that we booked our wedding date around their availability (essentially) lol.
Having the Lisa Love Experience perform at our wedding was hands down the BEST decision my now husband and I made throughout our whole wedding experience/process. They MADE our wedding! Every single guest was on the dance floor the entire night, even during dinner. Im not even kidding when I say that, the ENTIRE NIGHT! They connected with us and all of our guests and made it such an amazing experience for everyone. From their energy, to music choices, to knowing how to play the crowd went above and beyond our expectations.
Music was extremely important to us because to us thats what people remember at a wedding. Often they don't remember the centerpieces or what the cake looked like, but what people will remember years from now is the amazing live band that was at Erin & Manny's wedding. Lisa and the rest of the guys created a memory for us. We wanted a wedding that people never forgot, and I know LLE made that happen for us.
If I could recommend one thing to every couple out there planning their wedding is to, BOOK THIS BAND! You wont regret it. :)
I shopped around for many different bands and by far, the Lisa Love Experience was the best. They kept the crowd going through out the afternoon.
I picked them because of the variety of music they do and how different they are from the other bands. Most of the bands I was looking at were old looking and had no energy. When I saw them at Rockafellas, they blew me away with the energy and how they played one song into another without stopping. Basically keeping the dance floor going. After seeing them I knew they were the right choice for my wedding. I was not disappointed and neither were my guests.
The Lisa Love Experience absolutely hands down "made the wedding". ALL of our guests were on the dance floor, including my 93 year old great aunt who had 15 stitches in her foot!!! Her voice, her style, her energy and the band's choice of music was 100% spot on and more than we could have ever imagined. If you want your wedding to be fun and truly memorable, look no further.
Lisa was excellent to work with- super personable and always available. She listened to what we wanted and also offered up some ideas of her own. She literally became a friend during the planning process!!! We asked her to learn a couple songs for us (our first dance and the father/daughter dance) and they they sang both beautifully.
Im not kidding- they are AMAZING.
We had gotten to know Lisa and the Lisa Love Experience (LLE) over the years by seeing them several times at various local clubs. My husband, who was in a band, had also heard about the LLE through the “band circuit” and what true professionals they were. We knew we wanted a band for our wedding, and the LLE was the only band we ever considered. Thankfully, they were available for our wedding day. Easy to work with, accommodating, and did an outstanding job of not only providing a wide range of music for our diverse crowd (more than half were French-Canadian), but MC’d the entire evening flawlessly. If you choose the LLE (and you should-this is an exceptional band) you will be completely satisfied with your “experience.” Thanks once again, Lisa and boys, it was an amazing night, thanks in great part to all of you! We received many compliments about the band.
We want to thank Lisa Love and the band so much for playing at our wedding. The day could not have gone more perfectly and they definitely were a big part of that! We were amazed with how many guests came up to us and said how fabulous they were. The dance floor was packed for the entire night, thanks to Lisa's contagious energy and great set lists. Lisa Love made it impossible to leave the dance floor! They even learned the song that we wanted to use for our first dance, and really played it incredibly! We were so impressed! The band is so experienced, they know exactly what to play and when to play it, and are also helpful with keeping the evening flowing as it should, but emcee-ing the event! We could not be happier and could not have imagined to music to be any better at our wedding!
I would give the Lisa Love Experience my very highest recommendation. We could not have found a better wedding band, and they made our wedding so much fun. They had tons of our guests out on the dance floor from the very beginning to the very end, and we loved all the songs they played. They were easy to deal with, always got back to me right away, and helped our reception flow better. All in all, they're the best wedding band out there!
I have to be honest - I am a little biased because Lisa and Billy are friends of ours, but I cannot say enough about their talent and professionalism! When we got engaged and started planning, they were they only band we considered. When I got back to work after the honeymoon, coworkers were asking how things went, and that they heard from other coworkers who had attended how great the band was! Lisa is a true professional - she keeps the music flowing, plays to the room, MC's and is an amazing singer. The band is incredibly tight and they have a huge repertoire of songs spanning decades, so there's something for everyone. You will not be sorry if you hire them. They are worth every penny - and more!
The Lisa Love Experience was hands down- the best vendor choice that we made for our wedding! Truly amazing! Amazing Vocals, Amazing instrumentals with the perfect balance of professionalism and fun. We were a bit worried because we had quite a few elderly people at the wedding and we knew the band was high energy. They gauged the audience and the mood to perfection. It's been 7 months since our wedding and people are still talking about how amazing our band was. Our wedding would not have been the same with out them. It's that simple!
Lisa Love Experience was an amazing wedding band! I was married over a year ago (Dec 2009) and still to this day, guests comment on how great the band was, how fun the music was, and how much energy Lisa put into making the wedding an amazing night for everyone. From the beginning, Lisa and her band were excellent to work with, easy to talk to, and had great advice. The hotel staff even commented on how this was the first wedding they had seen where everyone was on the dance floor, the music appealed to all. Lisa Love Experience is clearly a well organized group that loves what they do. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band!!!
I can not say enough about The Lisa Love Experience. I found searching for a band to be one of the most difficult pieces of wedding planning. We live in NYC, trying to plan a wedding in Maine and looking in Boston for many of our vendors. It's hard to determine the true sound and quality of a band through a CD which may or may not have been enhanced. So I looked to others for recomendations. One girl told me "this was the name of my band, XXX, but you should get the Lisa Love Experience! I just went to a wedding where they played and they were amazing!" You really couldn't get a stronger recomendation than that. Lisa was great to work with, they have an amazing song list and are truely fantastic. Our first song is not an easy song to play or sing, and yet Lisa and her band did an amazing job with it. We are still getting people calling us and raving about how much fun the band was. Additionally, they were so flexible. Our wedding happened to correspond with a tropical storm, and everything had to be moved inside. Lisa and her band showed up hours before they were originally supposed to to set up with no problem. I was so happy that this was the band we went with and can not recomend them highly enough.
The LLE was great! We got married two years ago and people are still talking about how great the band was at our wedding! The crowd was on their feet dancing all night, and a dance off broke out a few times. Lisa even had my husband and father in-law doing snow angels on the dance floor! Great song collection, amazingly talented, so much fun, and great to work with. I recommend them to everyone I know.
We absolutely loved having Lisa Love Experience as our wedding band. They were fantastic! All of our guests had a great time dancing to a good mix of music for all generations. The band also learned to play our wedding song, a song that was not something they already knew. During our reception, my grandma requested a polka for her and my grandfather to dance to. Even though the band had never played a polka before, they managed to whip something up on the spot! Lisa has such an amazing voice and my dad still (4 years later) listens to the demo CD we got from the band. We'd highly recommend Lisa Love Experience to any couple looking for a great wedding band. They are the best!
Best Band! They were so accommodating and lovely. Once we heard Lisa's amazing voice, and heard all the talent the boys brought in and saw how well they worked together, we knew they were band for us. Young and old alike enjoyed this wonderful group, and there was something for everyone! Love, love, love!
The Lisa Love Experience was AMAZING. They truly MADE our wedding. To this day, we still have people telling us that ours was the best wedding they have ever been to. And I'll be honest, my husband and I were just out of school, and did not have a lot of money to spend. The setting, the food, the flowers etc, were all pretty average, but it was the music that made our wedding stand out. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night, from my little nieces to my grandmother. The LLE was able to make our wedding special, to really cater to us, to who we are.
Since we got married, I have recommended the LLE to everyone I know. They played my sister's and my best friend's weddings, my friend's 40th birthday, and I also go to hear them ROCK the bars whenever I get a chance. Hire them whenever you have an opportunity. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
We have worked with the Lisa Love Experience a few times, and they are certainly the band to keep people on the dance floor all night long. The band members are also very gracious, as we have plugged into their sound system, in order to get optimal audio for the B&Gs wedding DVD. I don't think anyone would walk away disappointed after attending a wedding where Lisa Love Experience were the band playing.
Voted #1 Best of Boston wedding bands by Boston city voter 2010, 2011. Voted 2011 "The Best of The Knot" and Winner of WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Awards™ 2011, 2012 for Best Wedding Band.
The Lisa Love Experience is New England's most sought after band for weddings. A modern dance pop band and Master of Ceremony. Have a seamless/flawless reception with dancing and great music for all of your friends family and guests.
We also have a 19 song CD we offer free at all shows or by mail.
The bar in the same room. This is a great tip. Believe it or not your guest will always be at the bar. Having the bar in the same room as your reception will insure you and your guest will always be in the heart of the action and won't miss a thing.
