THE BEST, best, best, best! Our guests are still talking about what an amazing time they had at our wedding and how much fun Bearfight was. My fiancé (now husband),my parents and I went to check them out on St. Patty's day 2016 , we knew on the spot they would be a perfect fit... Read More for our Cape Cod wedding. Planning with Chris was honestly one of my favorite memories from the entire wedding planning process - he was familiar with the unique layout of our venue, respected my concern of wanting to appeal to all of the age ranges of the guests (and delivered on!), and he was professionalism while still being beyond approachable. I loved that they gave us free reign of song selection while still guiding us on what works well for a wedding set list/DJ combo - I could go on and on! We spent our engagement following them around Boston and formed a great friendship with the guys - I got emotional when I first saw them as I walked through the reception space for the first time. Our wedding day would not have been the dream it was without Bearfight!

Absolutely the BEST wedding band and DJ out there!!! Honestly, our family and friends can not stop talking about how awesome our reception was and it's because they kept the party going all night long with a fun mix of music!!! I am so happy that they were highly recommended to... Read More us by a friend who scoured the country for her wedding band and found them! After seeing all of their reviews and performances, we knew we had to have them and booked them immediately (best thing we ever did)! Since the beginning of our wedding planning, we have felt well taken care of and they truly listened to every single request (BIG and SMALL)! The highlight was when I requested they play 'Love Shack,' as that is my power karaoke jam. Not only did they learn the song for me, but invited me up on stage so I could rock out at my own wedding!!! BEST DAY EVER and it's all due to Bearfight!!! We can not thank them enough!!!!!

BearFight was beyond incredible! Working with them prior to the wedding was an absolute breeze - they were so responsive and answered all of my ridiculous questions without making me feel ridiculous. It was so helpful to have a band/DJ combo for as many hours as we needed. It... Read More really streamlined the planning and allowed us to hire less people. They walked us through all of the pre-planning stuff which allowed us not to have the slightest worry on the day-of, which is 100% what I was looking for in a vendor! They are such professionals and amazing at what they do. I am not exaggerating when I say our ENTIRE guest list was on the dance floor at one point or another - people that I never thought would dance were tearing it up!! BearFight was the absolute perfect addition to our wedding and I can't say enough fabulous things about them. If you want your wedding to be an absolute blast - these are your guys!

Bear Fight was the first vendor we booked because we knew, out of all the many elements that brings together a wedding, the band was the most important to us! From day one the guys of Bear Fight were accommodating, easy to work with, and so excited to be a part of our special... Read More day! John spent many nights on the phone with my husband and I answering questions about timing/format, song selection and countless other topics- he is not only an amazing musician, but such a kind and caring guy! On our wedding day, guests raved about the acoustic duo as we talked to everyone during cocktail hour and once the band started after dinner we danced the entire night! I can honestly say the best memory I have is getting on stage and dancing with my new husband to the amazing music of Bearfight as our closest friends and family rocked out! I have absolutely no hesitation recommending Bearfight- if you want to have the most unbelievably fun night of your lives, BOOK THEM!

If you're looking for a wedding band (or for any event) - look no further!! BearFight totally rocked our wedding from cocktail hour through the last minutes we were allowed in the venue. I would hire them allover again in a heartbeat. Their professionalism, energy and talent... Read More totally made the day so much fun and attributed to everyone saying that it was hands down one of the most fun weddings they've ever attended. We now have people who attended our wedding getting engaged and asking for their information. One more important note - they don't play any songs that would make you want to take a dance break, so strap on your sneakers and get ready to dance ALL NIGHT LONG.

We went to a wedding a few years ago that BearFight played and it was absolutely the most fun we had ever had. The moment we got engaged we had no idea about where, or when, we wanted to get married; just that BearFight would be our band. No joke, when we finally found our venue... Read More I didn’t even book it until I checked with the guys to make sure they were available. I was a little worried when we later found out that Chris wouldn’t be able to make it, but they did not disappoint. Our photographer even commented multiple times that this was the best band he had ever heard at a wedding. A noise complaint from a few floors above in the hotel proved just how hard they rocked out. Easily the best and easiest wedding planning decision we made. Thank you for being such great guys and so easy to work with. To anyone out there looking for a band, just book BearFight now you will not regret it.

Five stars is not enough for this band. Bearfight was the first vendor we booked for our wedding after seeing them preform at Figawi on Nantucket, and they were far and away the best money spent on the wedding. From start to finish they were super cool and professional and... Read More totally understood the exact "vibe" we were going for. They were able to get the party started and keep it going. I was very nervous about having a wide Agee range- small children to elderly- at the wedding and trying to keep everyone's interest with dancing and music, but everyone had a blast! We keep being told it was an "over the top" and "best wedding ever" thanks to Bearfight! I can't wait to go to their local shows now that the wedding chaos is over.

BearFight was the best wedding decision that we could have made! I first saw them at Landsdowne Pub while I was attending school in Boston. They absolutely rocked and I knew I needed to have them play at my wedding- mind you, I wasn’t even engaged at the time! I asked if they... Read More played at weddings and kept their card. Fast forward two years later, and I still had that card when I became engaged. The first major wedding decision I made was to hire BearFight as our band (before we even had a venue or a date)! My fiancé (now husband) hadn’t heard them before, but trusted me enough to hire them! And boy, was he happy I did! We had the BEST wedding I could have asked for. From the moment they started playing, guests of all ages crowded the dance floor. Even when it was time to shut down, the majority of guests were yelling “10 more songs!” We just didn’t want the party to stop! Our guests are still raving about how AWESOME they were! Not only was the band great, but the DJ was amazing as well! I can 100% say our wedding would not have been as memorable if they were not there. The guys were super friendly, professional yet fun, and easy to communicate with. They were more than willing to travel to upstate NY, which had to be at least a 4-5 hour drive for them. If you are looking for a great band and to have A LOT of fun, these are your guys!

Bearfight is the absolute best wedding band and dj combo out there. Our wedding was an EPIC dance party, and Bearfight gets all the credit. There were chants for one last song, twice(!) too man sing alongs to count, and the most incredible love-fest song list! Chris and the guys...

Do not hesitate in booking this band for your wedding, they are amazing.

AND when my dad wanted to surprise me and sing during his speech, Paul learned the music to the song...in less than a DAY! Our one requirement for our wedding band was that they bring the energy and keep the party going all night long--and they didn't disappoint! I'm not lying when I say I was dancing for 3 straight hours, and so was everyone else! I can't tell you how many of our guests told us that BearFight was "the best wedding band they ever heard!"

We hired Bear Fight for our wedding in Salem, MA on 8/12/16 and they were amazing!! We first saw them perform at a friend's wedding a year before and loved their energy and set lists.

They were so easy to work with and very good about responding/communication which any bride/groom really appreciates when you have a million other things you are trying to coordinate. We had a scheduled phone call the week of our wedding just to go over the specifics which I really appreciated. They had a ton of songs to choose from in their set lists from Dave Matthews and alternative, to Country, 80s, 90s and today. They were such great performers that interacted with us and our guests which helped to fill up our dance floor and get everyone up and dancing! Their DJ was great too! I had a particular mood in mind for the cocktail/dinner portion of the evening (Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc.) They provided me with a spreadsheet and I was able to fill in all my specific song requests (which I had a ton!) or leave it up to them to select the songs based on my general style requests. I also hired their DJ to come out for our ceremony to play pre-ceremony, processional, mid ceremony and recessional requests of mine which he did a beautiful job of! Lastly, our wedding ceremony was outside at a different venue then our reception, the weather forecast was very iffy that day and we were going to make a day of call a few hours before if we were going to proceed with the outdoor ceremony. It meant so much to me that Bearfight was willing to be flexible in terms of their set up time incase we had to move the ceremony indoors and worked with my onsite wedding coordinator instead of stressing me out on my wedding day over these sorts of details. These guys are definitely professionals! My husband and I along with our families and guests all highly recommend Bearfight for your MC, DJ and wedding band!
