Hands down one of the best decisions we made for our wedding was to hire Men in Black! It's been just over a week since our wedding and the glowing reviews and amazing stories from the dance floor continue to pour in from our guests! Simply stated this band provided an amazing... Read More high energy, action packed and just genuinely fun time for the entire evening. They started strong (so much so they were asked to take a break so people would stop dancing and eat their dinners :) ) and carried all the way till the end.

We had the opportunity to check out Men in Black at a wedding a couple months before ours. We were blown away by the way they managed a crowd of 300+ people. We knew we had to have them for our 170 person wedding. Our layout was not the most optimal (a small stage, low ceiling,... Read More 15th floor of the Wyndham) but they took advantage of every square inch of space to deliver a performance we will remember our entire life. They setup prior to our ceremony (Ceremony and Reception were essentially in the same place) and disappeared until their time to shine. Once on stage they skipped their 2nd break, counted down to New Year's Eve, and let my wife and I sing on stage Journey to bring the house down. I couldn't be happier with our choice of Men In Black at our wedding.

Men In Black played at our Wedding on 12/10/2016 and they were AMAZING! We had seen them at two other weddings in the past and knew we had to have them play at ours. From the very beginning, Tania was a huge help and up until the day of it was a pleasure working with them.... Read More Jeff (the band leader) made sure to schedule a phone call with us to go over what we wanted, and he did exactly what we asked! I had a special request for dancing with my dad and he nailed it! Everything went perfectly and I had zero stress! They are very talented, very energetic, and very friendly and they know how to keep the dance floor going all night! People have been raving about them for the past two weeks, and we have been making plans to go see them play next time they are in the area. They absolutely ROCK and we are so glad we were able to book them. We highly recommend them to anyone who wants to have a great time! Thank you for everything MIB!

Men in Black performed at our September wedding and we couldn’t be any happier with our choice! Jeff, the band leader, and Hank Agency were both extremely easy to work with and very communicative leading up to the wedding. Jeff made sure to speak with us just before the wedding... Read More to go over all of the information we provided and make sure that everything we wanted (or didn’t want) to happen was all set in advance. All of this thorough gathering of information paid off on our wedding day when everything went smoothly and seamlessly. Men in Black didn’t miss a beat and had the entire room dancing from start to finish at the reception! Throughout the night, the band members made a point to come out into the room to directly engage our guests and get them both dancing and singing, which was so much fun! Even better were all the little surprises that Jeff and the others had up their sleeves to entertain us with during the reception – my husband and I especially loved getting called up to perform different songs with the band! After the wedding, we received so many positive compliments about the quality of Men in Black, and we are so happy that we chose them. We highly recommend this group!

We can't recommend Men in Black highly enough. Jeff and the band got all of guests (of all age groups and musical tastes) dancing at our wedding early and kept them on the dance floor all night. Our wedding was over 2 weeks ago and people are still commenting that Men In Black... Read More was the best wedding band they have ever seen. Jeff was great to work with and accomodated all of our requests (e.g., Boston vs. New York dance off, abbreviated parent dances, etc.). In addition to the core band, we added a horn section, which was awesome. They added a whole new level to the music and were very well integrated into the whole band. Also, Tania at the Hank Agency was very helpful in booking the band and working through the timeline and logistics. She was also a great resource with some of the last minute details we needed, such as uplights for our venue. We strongly recommend that you book Men in Black for your wedding!

If you're still searching for a wedding band and these guys are available, book them now! They will not disappoint! We could not be any happier with our choice. The entire crowd loved every minute of every song they played - we had people coming up to us after just two songs... Read More asking us where we found MIB because they were one of the best bands they had ever heard! They can cover a wide genre and really play to the crowd. They do a phenomenal job reading the atmosphere and adjust their set list to how the party is going, and once you're on the dance floor it'll be really tough to leave as they transition from song to song seamlessly. Asides from a break during dinner, they only took one other break the whole night which seemed to only be about 5 minutes long. Tack on Jeff's masterful job at being MC as well as the keyboardist and guitarist who we had play our ceremony and cocktail hour and you have yourself the full package. They're the ideal wedding band and are worth every penny. Cannot thank them enough for making the night such a fun and memorable experience! –Brendan and Caroline

After sampling the impressive collection of video and mp3 previews, I knew Men In Black would be the best band for our wedding. That being said, I totally underestimated how much they would truly enhance the experience. Piano for the ceremony and acoustic guitar during the... Read More cocktail hour were the perfect accompaniment and the music just got better from there. The energy was incredible from the opening set to the last dance and encore. No song was out of place and the range was spectacular. No need for must play/do not play lists, they know how to pack a dance floor and keep everybody moving. They are all exceptional performers and the crowd interaction was especially fun. It was great to see multiple lead singers that could cover so many styles and decades with fantastic quality. They even learned a new song upon request for the father/daughter dance and performed it beautifully. Jeff was highly professional and we trusted him completely to provide memorable entertainment for our kick ass wedding. If you're considering options, adjust your budget, change your date, and book Men In Black!

Men In Black are incredible! We had them as our wedding band on 7/30/16 and they absolutely MADE our reception the amazing time that it was. They played all night to a packed dance floor while anticipating exactly what the crowd wanted to hear and how to keep people having a... Read More good time dancing all night long. What is unique about Men In Black is that they have the ability to engage the crowd in an incredibly fun and playful way whether it's coming out on the dance floor to sing or enlisting the musical talents of the bride, groom, and bridal party. Our guests kept coming up to us that night to rave about MIB and were writing to us the following week about how incredible MIB were. My cousin is getting married next year and now she wants a band for her wedding after seeing how professional, skillful, and fun Men In Black were! Also, the band learned a difficult song as our first dance song and it was very clear that they practiced the song until they mastered it. Their attention to detail in learning this song truly added to how special our day was and is a testament to how professional they are to put in such an effort. I would recommend them without a doubt to anyone looking for a band for an event. Jeff Fraser and the band really know what they're doing and how to both MC and entertain a crowd.
