I have not stopped smiling since my NYE wedding day and can still hear the band rocking out in my head! What a night it was and a lot of it has to do with the band! I had been to two weddings where Clockwork performed and loved them. But I had no idea the band was going to... Read More perform even better than when I saw them over the summer. The vocals, the effects, and working with Ron were all such amazing experiences that every bride and groom needs to be a part of. Ron helps execute your plan so seamlessly! There is no stress involved and he knows what he's doing....all you have to do is trust him! On the other hand he's also open to performing however you want including having his vocalists and musicians playing out on the dance floor right beside you. At my wedding night, Clockwork was jaw dropping good!! And I have had dozens of guests reach out to tell me the same! It was the best wedding/NYE party of my entire life and I dont think anything can top it in my book! I miss working with them already and hope to see them at Polcari's or another wedding soon to relive such a memorable night once again! One last thing....the band learned my wedding song "As" by Stevie Wonder and PERFECTED it!!!!! It was magical. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything Clockwork! All you brides out there....call them quick because they book up very fast! Cheers and Happy New Year :)

Honestly, we couldn't recommend CLOCKWORK more. They absolutely made our wedding! They were almost TOO GOOD and I think they should move to LA and be famous. They are some of the best musicians we have ever heard and everyone kept complimenting us about them. And from start to... Read More finish, they were phenomenal to work with. They were the best at communicating. Ron was incredibly responsive and even gave some advice when I needed him to. In the wedding business, there are a lot of vendors who ignore you for weeks or even months. Ron always got back to me within a day and was more than willing to go above and beyond. He even mixed our song for our first dance to add in a little joke in the middle. And he offered to learn it if we wanted it played live (we decided we wanted to practice with the recording!) The performance the day of was just magical. The musicians would even come into the crowd and sing and play while they are dancing with us. The sax solo during "Time of My Life" was so good I could have died happy! And both my husband and I are so in love with the lead singer we thought about calling the wedding off. Yes, he's that good. Our guests would have danced all night if the venue didn't close at 11 PM. We will keep them in mind for any future party we have. And we are recommending them to all of our friends! We want to see them perform any time they are in Boston. We couldn't be bigger fans! We love you Clockwork! ~Amie and Brian

Clockwork played at our wedding Saturday, Oct. 29, 2016, and they were ABSOLUTELY the highlight of the evening! To start, the preparation before the wedding was completely ideal: Ron contacted us early, and we had time to think about how we wanted to complete the wedding info... Read More sheet he sent us. We spoke on the phone to go over details about a month before the wedding and after that phone call, I was incredibly excited and relieved about so many details of the wedding: Ron had great ideas, was willing to be flexible and customize the plan to our ideas, and had answers to all of our questions. Any question we sent he responded to via email almost immediately, which was sometimes a rare experience for us with other wedding vendors! He was consistently positive, reassuring, organized, professional, I could go on and on!! The actual wedding performance was PHENOMENAL - it exceeded all of our expectations and so many guests are STILL telling us it's the best, most fun wedding they've every been to, mostly because of the music!! The entire evening was 100% filled with dancing - including several guests over 80 years old! I cannot say enough how awesome it was to have them play - I didn't have to think about or worry about anything that day and it was literally the most fun I've ever had in my life. Rich, who coordinated the event lighting and pre-recorded playlists, also did a wonderful job with setting everything up, cueing music for the ceremony, and DJing the after-party. The uplighting was a very nice touch, as well as good value for adding more energy and aesthetic to the room. I wish I were having another event where I could hire Clockwork!! It was a dream!! Thank you to all of the band members for everything!!

Clockwork honored our original deposit and was so positive about playing at our wedding. The music is awesome, the talent is outstanding. We had an absolute blast. We can't say enough. Clockwork made our dream wedding come true!

Definitely book Clockwork for any type of celebration you have! The band leader, Ron Barth and the band had our wedding guests on their feet and dancing, jumping, singing and clapping the entire night! Our guests loved the amazing vocalists and the 6 other musicians. Our top... Read More priority was having a great band that kept the energy high, but Clockwork went above and beyond in working with us. Ron was unbelievably helpful through the planning process. His band learned several new Jewish songs to play for our thirty-minute long, exuberant hora! He was readily available when we wanted to talk and his answer to every request was always "Yes!" The band was also gracious enough to coordinate with my dad on a song that he wanted to perform for us. From the planning straight through the wedding, working with Clockwork was more than we had hoped for. I would absolutely book them again...and again and highly recommend them if you're looking to party. Thank you, Clockwork!

Stop your search right now and book Clockwork! You will not regret it. Seriously, stop looking at other bands, because I can't imagine any of them can top the talent and enthusiasm we saw from Clockwork at our wedding on 9/25/16. From the very beginning, Ron Barth (the band... Read More manager) was friendly, professional and accommodating. We did not have to worry about the music at all while we were in the middle of all the other planning - we just knew Ron and his band had it. They started by playing some beautiful instrumental melodies during our ceremony and then they absolutely rocked the house during the reception. They hit all our song requests and then came up with a kick-ass playlist based on our taste in music. The dance floor was never empty. In fact, it was pretty much packed all night. I don't think I will ever forget their amazing rendition of "Shout" or their awesome cover of "Don't Stop Believin." I lost count of the number of people that came up to us to compliment the band. And just over a week later, people are still adding "awesome band" to the typical "beautiful ceremony" or "great venue" compliments. I cannot recommend this band enough. You will not be disappointed!

Clockwork is amazing! Our wedding was on September 17th 2016. They are so talented, and EVERYONE commented to me about the band afterwards- everyone loved them, and people were dancing a lot! If you want happy guests who have a great time and dance, they are the band for you.... Read More They also did some special songs for the ceremony that they did not know, but learned them for us which was special. The one thing I would say is that they do have a limited number of 1990's alternative/pop songs, and since we are older millennials, we do love that music and thought it would be cool/nostalgic to incorporate more at the reception, so I did miss that aspect, but besides that they were absolutely perfect. I think if they could add some of that to their list, they would be the ultimate wedding band- unstoppable! Loved working with Ron- so professional, emailed back quickly, and helpful. I still keep hearing how much my guests loved them, and we did too! Megan

Read More Clockwork is a consummate professional who worked closely with my daughter and son-in-law on both the playlists and the all important "flow" of the evening. All of the requests were accommodated and the flow was perfect. After a quick set, Ron introduced the three speeches of the evening (father of the bride, maid of honor and best man) which were followed by dinner with music in the background. It was then music and dancing for the next four hours, uninterrupted. Ron kept the evening flowing beautifully. He felt the energy of the 100+ 27-30 year olds and encouraged it, but not in an over the top way. I will treasure the father/bride dance to Unchained Melody forever. Bottom line, Ron and Clockwork have my unconditional endorsement.
