What our customers are saying
absolutely stellar night! Kirsten Harrington Great Harbor Yacht Club Wedding - August 27, 2022 - Nantucket, MA

Hi Anita,

Thank you for an absolutely stellar night!!! We loved Beantown so much, and cannot stop raving about our experience in conversations. We keep hearing from all our guests how much they enjoyed your performance too. You all were so interactive, energetic, and personal with us. 

Thank you again!

A night to remember Philip LeNeveu Nonantum Resort Wedding - July 30, 2022 - Kennebunkport, ME

From the very first interaction with Beantown, we knew they would be fantastic, but they blew our expectations out of the water. The professionalism, the responsiveness, and helpfulness in planning was amazing but nothing prepared us for how fantastic their performance would be! Everyone was on the dance floor all night and every guest I ran into preached their praises! A night to remember for my wife and I and big part of that is due to Beantown and Anita!

It was like being at a concert Ashley Wurth Basin Harbor Club Wedding - July 14, 2022 - Vergennes, VT

Absolutely incredible performance by Beantown. Absolutely amazing experience for us and our guests. It’s been a month and everyone is still talking about “the best wedding band they’ve ever seen”. Wish we could do it all over again! Thank you so much to your entire team! You are truly the best in the biz. It was like being at a concert. Amazing.

Beantown was fabulous Lindsay Burrows Graduate Providence Wedding - July 9, 2022 - Providence, RI

Beantown was fabulous! Loved Anita. She was great and so nice and helpful. They even allowed my friend to sing a song with them, which truly made my night. AND it sounded great!! Dance floor was packed until midnight. It was wildly fun. No pictures of the night because everyone was having so much fun! Sign of a great time. Music for all ages. Everything and everyone was AMAZING. I learned that other fun weddings that I have been to, had other Wilson Stevens bands. I will HIGHLY recommend to everyone.

We had a ball! Diane Phillips Tewksbury Country Club Wedding - June 24, 2022 - Tewksbury, MA

Thank you, Anita, we got so many compliments on Beantown and you’re such a sweet person.  We had a ball! 

Thank you!

Beantown always brings it Ellie Granese State Room Wedding - June 18, 2022 - Boston, MA

Anita! 

You and the band MADE OUR EVENING. I cannot thank you all enough. Our guests had so much fun and are still talking about how much fun they had dancing. 

Beantown always brings it. Thank you SO much for being a part of our big day. 

thank you from the bottom of our hearts Kathy Dunn Beauport Hotel Wedding - June 11, 2022 - Gloucester, MA

Beantown performed at our daughter’s wedding at The Beauport in Gloucester MA recently and were a huge part of making their wedding so memorable, so joyful, so happy and so hard to sit down as all we wanted to do was be out on the dance floor!! Also, we had asked Anita before the wedding if the band would back the MOH’s with a song included in their speech and she was so helpful and completely nailed their fun song for the bride and groom! We are still getting compliments of all of the joy felt at this wedding! And we thank Beantown from the bottom of our hearts!!

the BEST time Christine & Kevin Rewinski Wychmere Beach Club Wedding - June 4, 2022 - Harwich Port, MA

Hi Anita! 

We had the BEST time with Beantown and our guests are still talking about how much fun you all are! 

Hopefully our paths will cross again and we can all sing/dance together!! If you ever need some backup dancers please do not hesitate to reach out 🙂 

a phenomenal experience Hannah Lapuck & Emily Miller Willowdale Estate Wedding - May 28, 2022 - Topsfield, MA

We wanted to write to thank you and the rest of the band for helping to make our wedding a phenomenal experience over Memorial Day weekend.  So many of our guests have remarked that Beantown was the best band they have ever heard at a wedding — and we absolutely agree. 

Please share our thanks with the rest of the band.

absolutely phenomenal!! Joe Judge Blithewold Mansion Wedding - May 13, 2022 - Bristol, RI

BEANTOWN was absolutely phenomenal!! They are so talented and couldn’t have put on a better performance. We had a blast and everyone was either asking us for their contact info or commenting on how much they enjoyed their music.

Thank you again for all your help!

exceeded all expectations JoAnn and Sheldon Itzkowitz The Barn at Gibbet Hill Wedding - April 9, 2022 - Groton, MA

The music was phenomenal!! We could not have asked for anything better! All of our guests have been telling us how amazing you were! Beantown exceeded all expectations!

Additionally, it was a pleasure working with you prior to the wedding. We know our requests were atypical: dance music for the procession and recession, and Jordana and Joel’s first dance, etc. Everything turned out exactly how Jordana hoped! Jordana had a vision and I was excited for her that she wanted the wedding to reflect her character: thank you for making that happen! She was beyond thrilled!

We are grateful.

Best night ever! Stephanie Dworkin Intercontinental Boston Wedding - April 2, 2022 - Boston, MA

Thank you thank you thank you!!! Best night ever!!! Please thank the artists for us too!! Best night!! So appreciative of you and BEANTOWN.

we all enjoyed every second Jodi Landau Graduate Providence Wedding - March 20, 2022 - Providence, RI

Hi Cheryl,

Beantown was amazing, the wedding was wonderful and we all enjoyed every second of it. Beantown was the talk of the wedding! I am sure you will hear from some of our friends who are planning weddings in the next year or two to line up Beantown. It was great to work with you. We need to figure out an occasion to get the band back again. Thanks for everything and please tell the band they completely rocked it!!!

Simply wonderful Tome Andrade Rosecliff Mansion Wedding - November 12, 2021 - Newport, RI

From dealing with Tim and Anita, Beantown could not have been a more pleasant experience.

Simply wonderful… a wonderful group of people, band and company.

Thank you all!

had the absolute time of our lives Cassandra Scola Danversport Yacht Club Wedding - October 15, 2021 - Danvers, MA

We had the absolute time of our lives. It was the best wedding we had been to (not biased at all) but everyone told us the same thing! A major factor was absolutely because of Beantown! Coming out onto the dance floor, upbeat, fun and just overall amazing! We can’t thank you guys enough!

you truly made the wedding Ben & Jess Karas Boston Harbor Hotel Wedding - October 9, 2021 - Boston, MA

Thank you SO much – everyone had the absolute best time and couldn’t stop raving about how amazing you all were. You truly made the wedding so incredible and special and we were thrilled to see everyone on the dance floor the entire night!! We love that it all came full circle after you played at both of our families bar/bat mitzvahs!!

a dream Sammy Kublin Four Seasons Hotel Wedding - October 2, 2021 - Boston, MA

This day was something Jason and I have been dreaming of and planning for over two and a half years now and it was nothing short of perfection. A HUGE part of that was because of WS and Beantown. You guys are amazing; truly a dream!

Thank you for dealing with us and responding to all the emails. You crushed it with ants marching and all the music.

Countless people came up to us Saturday night and Sunday during the brunch and continued to talk about how amazing the band was. You guys truly made the night spectacular, and for that we are eternally grateful.

Thank you again for everything and good luck as you continue through this hectic wedding season.

You’re the creators of wonderful memories Tina Teodorescu, The MFA Companies Willowdale Estate Banquet - September 23, 2021 - Topsfield, MA

Thank you and the entire band for being such great artist; and, for making a night of friendship complete.  You’re the creators of wonderful memories and emotions, to which we will not forget.

Thank you again and all the best to BEANTOWN/WS!

Fantastic and Professional Sandy Dusel Blithewold Mansion Wedding - September 11, 2021 - Bristol, RI

Beantown was Fantastic and Professional. The dance floor was packed from before dinner serving to the very last song. I believe the crowd was chanting for ONE MORE SONG! From the beautiful weather, gorgeous venue, to fabulous guests…everything was perfect… but Beantown made the event!! Lots of compliments from guests and 2 engaged couples asked for your contact info. Thank you so very much.

couldn’t have been more pleased Susan Walsh Crane Estate Wedding - September 5, 2021 - Ipswich, MA

We couldn’t have been more pleased with the music and the evening. We all saw Beantown in 2018 at a wedding in Boston and knew we needed to have them for our event. The music sets the tone for the night and everyone had a blast and some never left the dance floor. Thanks for making this such a special night for Kate and David!  Hope to hear you play again.

no one stopped dancing Michaela Mahoney The Dunes Club Wedding - August 28, 2021 - Narragansett, RI

Thank YOU all for everything! I don’t even know where to start!! You guys are so amazing, everyone has been raving about you and how no one stopped dancing the entire wedding! Thank you for making our day so awesome!

I need another excuse to throw a party and have  Beantown come back to DC!

you truly set the tone Kristen Padilla Eisenhower House Wedding - August 27, 2021 - Newport, RI

Thank you to you & your team for everything you did to make this day such a celebration! Despite it being one of the most humid days of the year, every one of the band members embraced it and never let it slow them down! Our guests are still talking about how phenomenal Beantown was, saying it was the best band they’ve ever seen at a wedding! You truly set the tone for the evening!

Beantown is in its own class. Deborah and Gregory Peters Tupper Manor Wedding - August 22, 2021 - Beverly, MA

Hi Anita,

There is no way that we can properly convey how pleased we were with Beantown.  What talent!  Your song selections were spot on.  You choose songs that have a primal element that makes it impossible for many not to move their bodies with the rhythm.

Everyone was commenting on how Beantown was by far the best band they had ever heard at a wedding.  Beantown is in its own class.

I know you must be really proud of the band.  We wanted people to come to watch Jillian and Wes make their lifetime commitment to each other, sit back and enjoy the evening.  Beantown was spectacular.  Thank you for taking very talented individuals, allowing them to do what they do so well and then sharing the result with us.  And making us happy!!!

I truly think the world of Beantown Sherrin O'Neil Chatham Bars Inn Wedding - August 20, 2021 - Chatham, MA

Thank you again SO much for making our night so incredible. Beantown is so talented and made our special night more wonderful than we could have ever imagined. I am so glad you got to meet our sweet girl and see my boy all grown up! The after party was a lot of fun, though I wish we had you all until 1am?

I have submitted reviews at all spots!! I truly think the world of you all and am so grateful for all you did for us both last July and this weekend. I hope to see you all at weddings/events that I attend in the future!

Thank you again for everything!

You elevated everything David Vise Hildene Wedding - August 14, 2021 - Manchester, VT

Everyone told us Beantown was The Best Band they’ve ever heard at a celebration!!! The Best!!! The Very Best!!! And we agree!!!

Y’all had the beat, the instrumentals, the voice, the energy, the pacing and the spirit to make our daughter Allison and Adam’s Wedding Celebration the most phenomenal ever.

You elevated everything.

With extraordinary appreciation, awe and gratitude, thank you!

MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE EVER Kaitlin Sullivan Chatham Bars Inn Wedding - August 6, 2021 - Chatham, MA

THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE EVER! I am the oldest of 3 kids, and we are fans of Beantown for life, looking forward to hopefully booking Beantown for future events. Truly the most amazing experience, Beantown made our wedding! Thank you for everything!

Beantown was wonderful Susan Malefakis Wequassett Resort & Golf Club Wedding - August 1, 2021 - Harwich, MA

I’ve been wanting to write since Ingrid’s and Jason’s wedding to tell you how happy we were with everything the band did- Beantown was wonderful, start to finish! Your playing and singing of the bride’s and groom’s dance, Conversations in the Dark, were utterly beautiful – smooth warm style, just lovely. And the band’s playing and singing version of Bei Mir Bis du Schoen was exactly what we were hoping for – the tempo, the perfect singing and style were great! And then my 91 year old father – whom I hoped might be up for one or two dance steps for old times sake- danced up a jitterbug storm and kept on going, couldn’t stop from dancing since the music was perfect. Capped off by the singer of Sweet Caroline- so upbeat and so much fun, and great videos for us to remember. You kept Hava Nagila going perfectly and we have lots of proof showing just how happy all of our guests were.  Everyone, universally, commented on how fantastic the band was – thank you so much!

And we’ll be sure to recommend you to others with great enthusiasm!

THE G.O.A.T Joseph Byron Boston Park Plaza Hotel Wedding - July 24, 2021 - Boston, MA

Beantown is THE G.O.A.T band for any event, especially a wedding. Need I say more? Thank you for everything!!

outstanding Thomas Mackie Castle Hill Inn & Resort Wedding - July 23, 2021 - Newport, RI

That was SOME show! Never seen better. Ever. Setting had it all, weather was perfect when you wanted it to be, and oh, wait, the band! I’ve seen it all, but I’ve never seen anything like this. Great song selection and outstanding playing of the crowd.

Beantown was outstanding! Amanda Brusca Castle Hill Inn & Resort Wedding - July 18, 2021 - Newport, RI

Beantown was outstanding!!! Everyone was asking me where I found the band and how many people were actually back there! They played the perfect music for our event and everyone had the best time. Everyone was extremely responsive at every step! From Tim, to Cheryl, to Anita everyone was so helpful and easy to work with!

Thank you all SO much for working with us through planning, postponement, re-planning, and final execution. We were so excited to be able to have Beantown play at our wedding and could not be happier with the entire experience and performance. We have recommended them to everyone as our ideal wedding band!

BEST NIGHT EVER! Joan Windwer Belle Mer Wedding - July 3, 2021 - Newport, RI

I wanted to extend our gratitude for making our daughter’s wedding the BEST NIGHT EVER!!! We all had a fabulous time, and we have been hearing from our guests for days that you were the best band that they have ever heard, especially at this kind of venue. I was so happy with the song selection, the voices on the singers were amazing, the horn section, and just everything about BEANTOWN was truly awesome!!! It really was a night that will be remembered for years to come! I have already shared Wilson Stevens with several people, one of whom has already been in touch with you. I am certain that there will be more to follow, and actually I cannot wait to use you again!! One of our friends suggested that we renew our vows just to have you come and play again ! I also shared that you travel as well. MANY, MANY THANKS to all of you and the crew. You truly exceeded my expectations.

the best wedding band we’ve ever heard Zach Rosenthal Chatham Bars Inn Wedding - June 26, 2021 - Chatham, MA

Bias aside as this was our own wedding – Beantown was the best wedding band we’ve ever heard. Countless guests have stated the same.

Working with Anita and the WS crew was an absolute joy. Tim and Justin were exceptional throughout the process. Clear and timely communication throughout.

Thank you again for being a big part of our special day and exceeding our expectations.

a perfect night Victor DeOliveira Gurney's Wedding - June 5, 2021 - Newport, RI

What a perfect night. Beantown was amazing, everyone had so much fun and thank you for allowing our friends to sing with the band, they were so excited. 

Cristina and I enjoyed every minute. It will live forever in our memories.

Thank you so much!!!

The dance floor was never empty Walter Morris State Room Wedding - June 4, 2021 - Boston, MA

We really can’t say enough wonderful things about both Wilson Stevens Production and the band, Beantown. The dance floor was never empty and those that don’t dance felt like they were at a private concert! So many people have reached out to us to tell us how amazing they were.

We were beyond pleased.

incredibly memorable Robyn and Len Wolman Connecticut Convention Center Wedding - March 14, 2020 - Hartford, CT

Wow! What incredible musicians, singers and performers you have in this amazing band. Thank you for making an extremely different wedding incredibly memorable and enjoyable. Wilson Stevens/Beantown was wonderful to work with!

Best wishes, and say safe in this very trying time. Thank you all so much.

Beantown was absolutely unbelievable! Karen Bruso State Room Wedding - December 31, 2019 - Boston, MA

There aren’t enough words to thank you for such an amazing night!!! Beantown was absolutely unbelievable! People are still talking about the awesome music and what a great time they had dancing! We never could have imagined how much fun they would be!! We wish we had another daughter just so we could have another Beantown wedding!

You guys rock! Ashley Lunt Museum of Fine Arts Event - December 14, 2019 - Boston, MA

Anita – thank you for an amazing night! Beantown is the talk of the office this morning!

While I assume we’re too late to book you for 2020, we look forward to working with you again in the future. You guys rock!

exceeded all of our expectations Leah & Rob Kaufman Hyatt Regency Wedding - November 23, 2019 - Cambridge, MA

Hi Justin and Anita,

Wow-we don’t know any better way to put it. We were absolutely blown away with Beantown; they exceeded all of our expectations (and then some). Our guests were absolutely raving about the music. They sounded great, thanks both to their talent and the expert work of the engineering crew. We’ve been to plenty of weddings with music that is poorly balanced or just too loud (not to mention less talented and less engaging) and the experience is night and day. Our guests who were seated could still carry on a conversation (without sacrificing volume on the dance floor)-not that it mattered, as the vast majority were on the dance floor all night (right until the lights came on).

To be frank, our one hesitation with booking Beantown was price; there are, of course, less expensive options both within and outside of the Wilson Stevens portfolio. But, we banked on the band being the one piece of the reception that was going to make or break the experience and weren’t disappointed. No one will remember the flowers or table cloths, but they will remember the music. Beantown and the crew were worth every penny (and then some).

Feel free to use any of our comments here in promotional efforts or in discussions with potential clients (we will also be adding reviews on The Knot, Boston Magazine Weddings, etc). We’re also happy to act as a reference if needed.

dance floor was packed all night Amanda Cascione State Room Wedding - November 16, 2019 - Boston, MA

I can’t say how awesome Anita and all of Beantown were. They were great to work with. They accommodated a bride who wanted to sing a couple songs with them. They were absolutely a pleasure to work with and I would recommend them so highly to anyone who asked. I had guests that were just in shock because they felt like the band never stopped! That is wonderful to hear. Every single person I spoke to said that this was the most unbelievable band they had ever seen at a wedding. I have to agree. The dance floor was packed all night, which was all we wanted.

absolutely fabulous Julia Litvak World Trade Center Wedding - November 10, 2019 - Boston, MA

The music and performance were absolutely fabulous. Our guests were raving about the band. Beantown was definitely the highlight of our event and the best decision we made (together with the venue) while preparing for this wedding. Also liked the lighting provided by Kevin very much. Such nice touch during ceremony and reception. Thanks so much to everyone!

I will treasure forever! Lou DiPaola Boston Park Plaza Wedding - November 9, 2019 - Boston, MA

You were all amazing! You made my daughter’s wedding something that she and I will treasure forever!!! I bet you have been hearing that for years.

You are all amazing musicians. I haven’t played in 20 years now, but as a musician and having had a small wedding band for 15 years, I know what it takes to make it sound so good. The arrangements were spot on and each vocalist was better than the next. Everyone came up to me and said how Beantown was the best band they had ever seen!!! 🙂

the incredible talent Kathleen A. Martin, Vice President for Institutional Advancement Springfield College MGM Springfield, Aria Ballroom Event - October 26, 2019 - Springfield, MA

Anita,

On behalf of all those who attended (and danced the night away) at the President’s Gala, thank you to Beantown for being our entertainment. There was no better choice for our event. The energy, the song selection, the participation, and the incredible talent of each and every member of the group helped the night to be a huge success. We knew you would would be great, but, the performance was absolutely extraordinary. With guests in attendance from their early 20s to their 80s, Beantown made it possible for everyone to be involved and to enjoy the good vibes coursing throughout MGM Springfield. And, you personally letting President Cooper join you at your drums is a moment I’ll remember for a long time.

Thanks for being part of our event!

everyone dancing from start to finish Richard Barbolla Birchwood Vineyard Wedding - October 25, 2019 - Derry, NH

I wanted to thank you for a great night, I’ve been at 3 weddings including ours with Beantown and outside of these events Ive never seen a dance floor completely full and everyone dancing from start to finish. I believe that’s what makes a great wedding you are all great performers and I would recommend your band to anyone…Great performance with a lot of energy.

Id like to share this, whats the best way to share my review?

Thank you again!

the absolute BEST choice Alexandra Bartholomew The Fairmont Copley Plaza Wedding - October 19, 2019 - Boston, MA

Wilson Stevens & Beantown were the absolute BEST choice for our special day! Anita, and the whole crew were absolutely amazing! Our wedding guests haven’t stopped raving about how unbelievable Beantown was!! I will absolutely be recommending Beantown to anyone who asks for wedding band recommendations, if I could do it all over again, Beantown would be our #1 choice without a doubt!!!!

Fabulous! Leslie Logel Ocean Cliff Hotel & Resort Wedding - October 13, 2019 - Newport, RI

Fabulous! Can’t say enough. Everyone complimented Beantown and said they were wonderful. It was a pleasure to work with your business. You answered all my questions and emails in a timely manner and I truly appreciated it. Everyone was kind and helpful. Anita from Beantown was wonderful. She was patient and worked with Joe and Christina. Couldn’t have asked for more. Very happy.

kept everyone on their feet all night Katie Mangano Belle Mer Wedding - September 29, 2019 - Newport, RI

Hi Anita,

Wow, I don’t even know where to begin. Thank you so unbelievably much!!! That was Cody and I’s dream come true for our wedding. You guys rocked and kept everyone on their feet all night! From the awesome intros, to the special tribute song you learned, to pulling off a super fun first dance! We had an absolute blast and I can not thank you guys enough 🙂
