It's been just about 2 weeks since my wedding, and as we've caught up with our guests every single one of them comments, "that band was AWESOME!" My husband and I met on a dancefloor - so it was essential to make sure the dancefloor at our wedding was the best, and LEGENDS of... Read More SUMMER does not disappoint! Through the whole night, every single guest spent time on the dancefloor - and my husband and I spent the entire night there. Kim also played for the ceremony, and it was so so perfect. Her voice is incredible and as soon as I heard her singing as I walked down the aisle, I couldn't hold back the tears. LEGENDS was so easy to work with, so professional, and so much FUN. Even the venue, which has hosted hundreds of weddings, said they were hands down the best wedding band they ever had at their venue. Five stars is not enough - we are so happy we went with them.

Legends of Summer blew us away at our wedding! Everyone kept on telling us how much fun they had, how the music was amazing, and how they could not stop dancing all night!

We (and our guests) can't say enough about how awesome these guys are. We hired them to perform at our New Hampshire wedding in July, and their energy and song selection absolutely made the party. We knew we wanted a different kind of wedding since we love to dance and enjoy... Read More live music. We are so happy we chose these guys. Our parents had a blast and our friends loved them. Everyone still talks about the band. They were so easy to work with -- since I'm a music nerd, they gave us a list for song selection, made sure to know any songs to avoid, and they even asked if there was anything we wanted them to learn. They did introductions, the first dances, and other duties without a second thought. We couldn't have asked for a more fun and accommodating group. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. In fact, my best friend has them slated for his wedding this summer. I guess that's the best endorsement you can give. Book them for your wedding. You won't regret it.

HIRE. THEM. NOW. We got married on 9/16/17. and our guests are still talking about how amazing our wedding band was! Legends of Summer is EXACTLY what my husband and I wanted and blew us away!! Not only are they BEYOND talented they were super flexible, responsive and just... Read More awesome people! We wanted a band that could rock out and sing music from blink 182 and jay z to prince and earth wind and fire, and they literally can do it all. We wanted to hear favorite songs from growing up, college (where we met), top 40 , your "classic" wedding songs, and then the songs everyone knows every word to and you just belt it out and rock out on the dance floor ( The Killers Mr. Brightside in our case) They came out onto the dance floor (while singing perfectly) and just partied with us it was better than we could have ever imagined. My parents and relatives kept saying " I have never seen a dance floor packed the entire night at a wedding before that was awesome!!" And it was, we didn't stop dancing and signing the entire night, i just want to relive it all over again! Everyone got up there and danced, it was unreal! Hiring a great band at our wedding was my #1 priority and they exceeded all expectations. HIRE. THEM. NOW. We love you guys, hope to see you around Boston! XOXO The Torde's

Absolutely fantastic. We booked Legends for our Providence wedding, and they were wonderful from start to finish.

HIRE THIS BAND. Seriously. First of all, they're just a killer ensemble. If you opt for the six piece ensemble, they will absolutely blow the roof off of your dance party and keep people moving all night long. Their ceremony services are awesome, and for the cocktail hour... Read More they have a small combo that does a "funktail" hour set that is totally groovy. Kim has a KILLER voice, and the rest of the band is just totally top notch. They even learned a few tunes for us, including our first dance song, "Through the Ages" by Cloud Cult. Look it up. It's a big ass song, they learned it, and it was amazing. They also learned S.O.B. by Nathanial Rateliff and the Night Sweats, which was a huge hit. I'm a singer myself and they backed me up while I serenaded my bride with some Ben Folds, and one of my other singer friends got to sing "Purple Rain" with them as well. In addition to be a killer band, they totally host the party for you. Kim basically acts as an MC, guiding your party through intros, toasts, seating for the dinner, whatever you need. By the end of the night, these guys felt like family, they hung out at our bonfire and were as much a part of the party as they were vendors at the party. It's been a month, our guests are still going out of their way to tell us just how amazing our party was, and a huge part of it was these guys. Hire them, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Legends of Summer played our wedding this past August and they were AMAZING! Having a great band play at our wedding was our number one priority and Legends far exceeded our high expectations - they were the best decision we made in terms of wedding vendors period. From... Read More beginning to end working with them was a total breeze. They were professional throughout and super responsive. They provided us with a list of songs to choose from for both the live music as well as tracks to be played during dinner. They also learned several songs for us including our first dance song by Dionne Warwick, an ED-country song "Wake Me Up" and a Bruce Springsteen song for my husband - they can truly cover all genres! Our guests are still talking about how great the band was - their only complaint is that they wish they could have played all night! Several of our guests got their card and want them to play their events. Kim was super interactive with the crowd and even had some of our guests playing the cowbells on stage. We love Legends and even though our wedding is over we fully intend to still be groupies at their Boston gigs!

We booked the Legends of Summer to play our wedding this spring in Rhode island and I can't say enough about how great of a job they did.
