Yesterday morning we woke up to the sweetest surprise on the Wilson Stevens WeddingWire page, another 5-star review! While this alone is always reason to celebrate, the review also marked the 100th review we have earned on our WeddingWire profile. We’re so blessed to come work every day and be able to make an amazing memory for our clients.
But like we’ve said before, there are sometimes hundreds of people working together to produce praise like this, and the Mandarin Oriental Boston never fails to provide an amazing setting for the weddings Wilson Stevens bands perform at. Calming New England color schemes, romantic fireplaces, fresh floral arrangements, and soothing music provide a luxurious respite tucked away in an ideal downtown location. Not to mention the staff is always friendly, hospitable, and just an all around pleasure to work with. So thank you to Adam and Laura, for allowing us to hit a milestone with this amazing review about Encore, as well as giving us an excuse to gush about one of our favorite Boston venues!
“My husband and I can’t say enough good things about Wilson Stevens and the band that played at our wedding, Encore. I spent months researching various bands and agencies and ultimately made the best decision choosing Wilson Stevens. My first phone call to the agency was very easy and they took the time to go over the various bands available to play on our wedding date, within our budget. I quickly learned that there is a band for most every budget and the agency was wonderful at sharing details about each band and their specialty. We went to a showcase and decided to book Encore for our July wedding. We knew right away that they would be perfect for our lively and upbeat wedding crowd!
Our guests started dancing from the moment they walked into the ballroom until the very end of the reception when they were chanting, “One more song, one more song!” Everyone was having so much fun that we extended the band’s schedule an additional 15 minutes at the end of the night. There wasn’t a single person sitting around, even my uncle with chronic back pain was up on the dance floor jumping! Encore played a range of music that met everyone’s needs and did very well at taking requests. Since the wedding, everyone has been telling us how much fun they had and how much they loved the band.
The band manager, also lead vocalist, is so sweet and called me a few times prior to the wedding to go over my needs and ask details about what we wanted most out of the band. My wedding was absolutely amazing mostly due to Encore and the Wilson Steven’s agency!! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for making our wedding day memorable!!”

“Thank you to Wilson Stevens and to Joey Scott and the Connection for a fantastic performance at our wedding this past weekend! The energy of the band was amazing, the musicianship and song selection flawless, and working with Wilson Stevens on the booking process was pleasant and straightforward – I especially appreciated how Tim Wilson guided me to the appropriate band based on our musical tastes and needs. THANK YOU for a wonderful experience!!

“BOSS was incredible at our wedding two weeks ago! Thank you for making our wedding so much fun!! Once the dancing started, EVERYONE was on the dance floor. There were only a few older family members who couldn’t make it to the dance floor but sat close by to be a part of the fun. Miles was right there singing with them. It was incredible and we appreciate the amazing talent so much! Thank you! The choice of music was excellent and every band member was dressed so appropriately. Even in the crazy heat we had Miles and the rest of the band rocked out with suits on and all. Thank you again for the incredible talent and amazing music your brought to our wedding. Our family and friends were commenting all night and to this day about how amazing and how much fun the band was! Thanks again!
