WILSON STEVENS ROCKS!Reviewed on 12/23/2011 Cindy K
I can not say enough about the incredible job Wilson-Stevens did in booking the PERFECT band for our wedding! Among the countless decisions that couples need to make in the planning of their big day, it is beyond comforting to know that someone is looking out for your best interests. Wilson Stevens provided us with exactly this peace of mind, and then some. I would strongly recommend them to any bride looking to enhance the experience of their wedding, and have the utmost confidence that Wilson Stevens will consistently go the extra mile to ensure the band delivers an amazing and memorable performance. No details are overlooked and no questions left un-answered. They make you feel as though your event is the only one on their calendar and apply a personal touch that gives brides the real impression that Wilson Stevens is truly invested in the outcome of their day. Unequaled professionalism and performance! Book these guys immediately, you will NOT be disappointed!
Splash!Reviewed on 1/25/2013 Danielle G
I want to thank everyone in Splash for doing such an amazing job at our wedding. Everyone was RAVING about how awesome they were and how it was the best wedding band they had ever seen/ heard. I overheard so many comments from the guests about the band throughout the night. It made me so happy because I feel like a good band is absolutely key to people enjoying themselves. A few of my friends said they had never seen people charge the dance floor like they did at my wedding. Their energy was awesome and people were saying one of the singers was like the next Usher, haha. Splash was just PHENOMENAL, responsive, and in tune with everything. They were loud enough so that people could dance and have fun, but not so loud that people were deafened or couldn't carry on a conversation. They were dynamic, young, fun, and not your typical cheesy wedding band. They brought everyone to life and I couldn't be happier with their performance.
RadianceReviewed on 12/12/2012 Lauren S
If you want your guests to wake up with sore feet because they were dancing so much, Radiance is your band. In all seriousness, we had the best time with them, and I cannot tell you how many times our wedding guests told us how great they were at Sunday morning brunch the following day. True performers. We worked specifically with Sal Difusco leading up to the big day, and he was excellent and responsive. We didn't have much of our music (first dance, father/daughter, last dance) decided until about a week before the wedding, which I'm sure was not ideal for them...especially when we asked them to learn 2 new songs for us! But Sal was patient and ultimately able to make it all happen. Sal also personally learned a song to play during our ceremony (he and a separate flutist played our ceremony music), which was amazing and beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes when I heard it as I walked down the aisle. We had heard Radiance before at a friend's wedding about a year prior, so knew we wouldn't be disappointed. But they still far exceeded our expectations. Beyond the few "must have" songs, we really let them lead the charge with music, which worked out well. They seriously had people on the dance floor from start to finish, the only exception being the dinner course. For about 20 minutes, Sal played guitar while guests sat, ate, and chatted amongst themselves. It was perfect background music. I would wholeheartedly recommend Radiance. They were worth every penny, in my opinion. Nothing worse than a band who can't get the crowd to its feet - and Radiance will not disappoint, I promise!
The Connection did an unbelievably good job at our wedding. From the moment they started playing until they turned off the power, there was no less than 80% of the wedding guests on the dance floor at any given moment in time. We spent a week afterwards getting questions from guests about who the band was. They were great to work with as well. They were clear and flexible about how to extend our time slot, if needed. We also had a late request for a second line to lead the guests a few hundred yards from the ceremony site to the reception site, which they happily helped out with (this was also super fun, would recommend). Strong recommendation with really no downside... The Connection was one of the highlights of our wedding.
Protege was amazing! Everyone at our wedding LOVED them! They were entertaining for everyone! My HR director at my company (who crashed my wedding) is trying to hire them for our Company Christmas Party! And for the cost of the band they were worth every penny!! :)
Joey Scott and the Connection were AMAZING. They had everyone on the dance floor the entire night. It made our wedding so special! Joey was very responsive/helpful in the weeks prior which really helped to put us at ease. WOW they rock ! :)
We got married last month at Linden Place in Rhode Island and booked ENCORE for our wedding. Let me just say, THEY ROCKED IT! Best wedding band hands down. We were absolutely thrilled with their performance. Our guests are STILL talking about how amazing they were. Talk about energy...this band is electric. They played everything from motown to pop and even country (per our request). They were constantly out on our dance floor, rocking it, dancing with us, letting us take the mic. I've been to my fair share of weddings and I've never seen a wedding band like this. Their lead singer has such a soulful voice -- we were blown away at everything she sang. We wanted our guests (young and old) to party and that's exactly what they did. We had guests who literally didn't step off the dance floor because the band was so good. We would recommend Encore over and over again.
Beantown is the best wedding/event band in the Noetheast. Period. We know this because : -we used them twice for family weddings -guests cannot and will not stop raving about them- months later. -they read the crowd and had everyone dancing all night long -we had to remind several guests that they were not at a concert -- they needed to stop watching the band and go talk to people -we needed a minor first aid station next day to treat multiple cases of dance fatigue -the band was responsive both before and during the party. They learned songs to customize the night and are very open to feedback.
Protégé was the perfect band for our daughter’s wedding in August 2016. This band created a dynamic atmosphere and a fun-filled, ongoing evening. Our guests, young and old, danced for the entire night! They were a class act in many areas! They were professional in appearance, time management, emceeing, and music quality. The choice of music was ideal for the venue and crowd. When we started wedding planning over a year ago, the bride and groom (being music lovers), expressed their hope for a band versus a DJ for their wedding. They wanted their guests to have a great time and they ranked the music as their top priority for their wedding. Wilson Stevens’ website and showcases helped us to find the match. Protégé was the perfect choice! We highly recommend Protégé for any music venue. We had a diverse crowd and all guests were happy. Our daughter’s wedding was perfect! Sincerely, Donna and Steve Bethoney
We cannot thank Dave and the members of One Step Ahead for making our wedding absolutely spectacular! From the first interaction we had with Justin at one of the Showcases last summer to our phone calls and emails, we knew we made the right decision in booking them. Wilson Stevens are beyond professional and helpful - they 100% put my wedding nerves at ease throughout the process. When we were finalizing our intro, first dance songs, and final songs - Dave was responsive, patient, and extremely helpful in guiding us to select the perfect song list. Our dance floor was full the entire night all thanks to One Step Ahead's energy, professionalism, and talent!! We cannot thank you all enough for providing us with the best night, ever!!
BEST WEDDING BAND!! After attending a friend's wedding in 2015 - my husband and I immediately knew Beantown was the band for our "future" wedding - we weren't married at the time, but knew one day we had to have them. We recently were married in Newport and were lucky enough to secure Beantown - a team of 15 musicians and technicians - for our big night! They were AMAZING! They kept the dance floor packed the entire night - they sounded great and were so much fun - the crowd loved them and everyone had a blast! A super talented group who truly love what they do! We worked with Anita during the planning process - she was fantastic and really great to work with! She helped answer all of our questions and provided guidance in helping create our schedule for the evening. We highly recommend Beantown for your wedding - you will not be disappointed! High energy - fun/talented people - best night ever thanks to Beantown and Wilson Stevens!!
PROTEGE was absolutely amazing!!!! They had everyone up and dancing the entire night and we continue to get compliments from our guests on how amazing they were. The band was also extremely easy to work with! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
We had an incredible experience working with Wilson Stevens Productions, and we HIGHLY recommend Beantown Band. So much of what made the day so amazing was Beantown. Beantown was incredibly engaging, professional and so talented. They read the crowd very well, and clearly no one could stop dancing! Since the day of our wedding, we have gotten so many compliments about the band and how it made the day. We would use them ten times out of ten. The best wedding decision we made!
Wilson Stevens and our band, Protege, were both amazing! Wilson Stevens really took the time to get to know my husband and I and recommend different band possibilities. They were responsive, flexible and so helpful with the whole process. Protege was perfection. They helped flawlessly orchestrate the night and followed our schedule perfectly. They energized the crowd, got everyone dancing (even people who I didn't expect to dance!), and read the crowd perfectly to choose songs. They came on the dance floor, joined our conga line and got the crowd singing into their mics as well! So many of our guests commented about how amazing the band was and one guest has already recommended them to her son who is planning his wedding! We could not have asked for a better company and band to work with. We highly, highly recommend both Wilson Stevens and Protege!
My husband and I went to a Wilson Stevens Showcase shortly after we got engaged. We immediately knew that we wanted Splash! after hearing them perform! We even scheduled our date around the band's availability. Let me just say, that they exceeded our expectations on the night of our wedding! The whole band was incredible and had all of our guests up and dancing the whole night. Katlin, the band liaison was extremely easy to work with and made sure that all of our questions were answered right up until the last week before the wedding. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about booking a band to not only go through Wilson Stevens, but go with Splash!...it will be one of the best decisions that you make for your wedding!
Both my Sister and I had The Boss play at our weddings. Wilson Stevens was very professional and organized and The Boss did an amazing job. They were a huge part of such a fun wedding with tons of dancing. I absolutely would recommend The Boss and Wilson Stevens.
The band Signature just performed at our wedding this past Saturday night and they were absolutely amazing. The dance floor was packed the entire night and the band read the crowd and picked the perfect songs at every moment. They were highly professional and accommodated all our requests. I would highly recommend this band to any bride looking to have the most fabulous performers and a group people will be raving about for a long time!!!
I can't say enough about Signature and Wilson Stevens. Signature provided music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and it was all incredible. The band kept our guests involved, engaged and dancing for 3+ hours. I received countless comments about how they were the best wedding band that guests had heard. They truly helped make our wedding the experience we were looking for. I can't say thank you enough!
Wilson Stevens Production and Protege were so amazing to work with! Everything was so professional from the moment we booked them. We had so many guests tell us how amazing the band was--appealed to every age guest we had at our wedding! We can't recommend them enough!!!
Wow!!! Splash was absolutely phenomenal at our daughter's wedding last weekend! They played with such energy that people could not help but be up in the dance floor! The three vocalists were terrific as were the musicians. The dance floor was packed the entire night!
Wow, wow, wow! Our wedding was truly the best day of our lives and SPLASH! had a big part in that. They were amazing from the moment they started playing and got the crowd on their feet the whole night. All our guests kept raving about how incredibly talented the band was and boy were they right! The duet Jenn, the lead singer, did with my father was so special to me and will cherish that moment for the rest of my life. She even took time out of her schedule to rehearse with him before the wedding day. Just incredible! Thank you for the ceremony music as well, everything was just easy because of your company. Such talent! Our smiles haven't left our faces thanks to SPLASH! They are the BEST!!
In a single word FreeStyle is "Amazing" and we could not have asked for a more in a band. They were professional, energetic and very talented. It was important to us to have the band play to all ages at our wedding (30 to 90) and they delivered. All of our guests raved about the band and how they did not want (and did not) leave the dance floor all night. We worked with Sam prior to the day and she was excellent. She was very responsive and was able to provide suggestions on the flow of the evening musically which as a huge help.
We booked Groove Alliance and got everything we were looking for! My husband and I are musicians, so after finding a decent venue in his hometown, we wanted a live band. I had heard of Groove Alliance because their sax player is an alumnus of the same music program as myself and my husband, just a few years before us. I decided to just take a chance and book them without looking at anything besides a few videos on their Facebook page. But I could not have gotten luckier! They were all such talented musicians, and Mike can really get a sense of what kind of music we would enjoy. I had so many of our guests come up to me throughout the night and in the following weeks telling me how much they loved the band! Groove Alliance really made the difference in making our wedding exactly what we wanted.
We booked Encore for our summer wedding and couldn't have imagined a better band! Encore sounded amazing, had great energy, and were so personal and accommodating. They had everyone on the dance floor the whole night and no one wanted the music to stop! One of the best decisions we made during the wedding process was hiring them!
Wilson Stevens Production was flat out incredible to work with in every aspect. Tim, Katlin the band Protégé absolutely made the wedding an unforgettable event. No one sat down from the first song to the last. Our guest were all asking where they could go to see Protégé preform again!
