We used Studio C and LOVED them. Around $5k.

Joey Scott and the Connection was awesome but out of our price range. ($7k or $8k?)

Where’s your venue? (Just curious)

We are using the Marsels… I’ve heard them at other weddings and at clubs around Boston and they are amazing! http://www.marsels.com/  They charge about $6k.

My friend used Booty Vortex.  They are not a wedding band, per se.  But they do perform at weddings.  They were awesome.  They often perform at Johnny D’s, so you can probably check them out there.  They do covers of soul and funk.  They were awesome!

I booked through Murray Hill Talent Co. They were great! They manage several bands and they work with you to find exactly what you’re looking for!

The Chicken Slacks! You have to reeeally like Motown though cause it is all they play. We were already fans (they play Johnny D’s frequently and are at the Cantab in Cambridge every Thursday) and they were really cool guys to work with. $3,800 and worth it to see the dance floor busy all night!

This doesn’t apply to your wedding that much, but I wish we could have had The Dan Band at our wedding!

I went to 2 bridal shows recently and they had this band there “World Premier Band”, they were through Entertainment Specialists http://www.entertainmentspecialists.com. They are local and pretty entertaining. They do pretty much everything too.

We booked the Winiker Band and are so excited!! 

I learned its best to contact the band directly as you will get a much better rate than going through their agent.

Men in Black, who we are using for our wedding, was voted Best of Boston by the Knot. They are really, really fun.
