We had a wonderful time and our guests were raving about how great the band was and how fun it was having members of the band come into the group to engage with the guests.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and please share my thanks with the rest of the band.

high quality with some incredible musicians Alex Nette Hotel Marlowe Wedding - September 30, 2017 - Cambridge, MA

One Step Ahead had a great music selection that kept us dancing all night. Their dinner music was incredible as well! Dave was great and very receptive and responsive, especially closer to the wedding date. We didn’t even notice the band had taken a break until they had been gone for a little bit. The music was well balanced and high quality with some incredible musicians.

a great night Peter L. Keane Great Harbor Yacht Club Wedding - June 2, 2017 - Nantucket, MA

I want to thank you for a great night of music and Melissa & Alex wedding in Nantucket on June 3rd. As Father of The Bride, I can tell you the feedback has been amazing. I love how you played straight through and how you had the flexibility to accommodate Ben as well as the Irish dancing jig. It was a great night and One Step Ahead was a huge part of it. Please pass along my thanks to all in the band.

so full of energy and so much fun! Kathleen Kobbe Newport Yachting Center Wedding – October 17, 2015 - Newport, RI

Performance Review:

1) Quality of Music: Excellent. Everyone was raving about how amazing the band was and the only time anyone left the dance floor the whole night was when they did! One Step Ahead truly made our wedding night the best celebration we could’ve imagined.

7) Use artist again?: Yes. The band was so easy to work with and was very accommodating of our requests prior to and on the day of the wedding. We didn’t have the chance to hear the band live prior to our wedding day but Dave totally put us at ease and we absolutely made the right choice!

Your transitions were seamless and you were so willing to work with our last minute changes. Thank you for making our wedding so memorable.

Hi Dave,

I’m sure you get emails like this all the time, but Will and I wanted to say THANK YOU! One Step Ahead truly made our wedding fantastic. Everyone commented on how amazing you all are and you had people up dancing who never dance!!! You all made our wedding so full of energy and so much fun for us and all of our guests.

I just wanted to let you know how truly happy we are with how everything went and how important your role was in making our wedding such a special and fun occasion. Also, thank you all so much for learning “Two Weeks” and having Edward sing with you, that was truly a moment we will remember for the rest of our lives (not to mention it sounded amazing). We also LOVED ending with “Lovely Day,” that was such a magical ending to a really incredible day/experience.

Please tell all the band members THANK YOU and you guys are really really incredible. Thanks for everything.

 

The band is HOT! Katie Simons Harvard Club of Boston - July 12, 2014 - Boston, MA

Performance Review:

2) Choice of Music: Excellent. The music selections were spot on. They kept in mind our requests (made ahead of time) and ready our audience perfectly! They did a great mix of fast fun songs and broke it up with slower songs. Absolutely perfect!

3) Grooming and Attire: Excellent. The band is HOT! Everyone looked great.

Exceeded all our expectations Colleen & Mike Turner Hill Wedding - December 13, 2013 - Ipswich, MA

A huge thank you to you and the band! We had an absolutely phenomenal time on Friday night and a big reason is because of you guys!! We’ve gotten so many complements: “where did you find that band?!”. I hope you guys had fun playing!
Exceeded all our expectations 🙂

I could seriously cry with genuine happiness Dana Pinatello (Scanapieco) Westerly Yacht Club Wedding - September 28, 2013 - Westerly ,RI

OH MY GOD TIM!!!! My wedding was over the weekend and I can’t say enough about One Step Ahead. I was just so floored with all their talent, the performances, their entertainment level… I could seriously cry with genuine happiness. I was so concerned with choosing the right band (as you know:)) And they just superseded all expectations in the greatest way. My guests were in pure awe of them as well.

So as genuinely and happily as I can put it… THANK YOU SO MUCH TIM and ONE STEP AHEAD!!!! I truly had the best day of my life and I will never forgot all the roles you all played in giving Luke and I our dream wedding!!! We are referring to everyone we know, for all occasions!!!!! I wish I had more occasions myself, I didn’t want them to leave 🙁 Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!!!

 

wonderful wedding reception entertainment Julia Post Beechwood Hotel Wedding - August 17, 2013 - Worcester, MA

Performance Review:

1) Quality of Music: Excellent. The music was fantastic, it honestly made the wedding reception into what I had envisioned.  The setting is one thing, but the band is what our guests really remember and talk about.  We received so many comments from our wedding guests that the band was so great.  I wouldn’t trade the live band for many other things in the wedding!

2) Choice of Music: Excellent. The band played some of the music I suggested and really got the crowd going with all of their music selections.

3) Grooming and Attire: Excellent. Everyone in the band looked great and professional!

4) Emceeing: Excellent. Dave was great to work with from before the wedding when we talked about our first dance song to greeting us before being introduced to make sure everyone was ready to go.  During the wedding reception he spoke clearly and kept it to a respectable minimum.

5) Break Schedule: Excellent. The breaks were fine and happened at appropriate times when the guests were eating and dancing wasn’t needed.

6) Use Wilson Stevens again?: Yes. It was great talking with Justin when I was trying to find a band for my wedding.  I had originally heard of another band they manage, but wasn’t available.  One Step Ahead was available and was a great option!

7) Use artist again?: Yes. It was very easy and enjoyable working with Dave from One Step Ahead.

Thanks to the band for wonderful wedding reception entertainment.  They created an amazing atmosphere and was exactly what I wanted for our wedding.  I appreciate you learning our first dance song, Vince Gill When Love Finds You.  I will be sure to pass along One Step Ahead & Wilson Stevens’ name for anyone looking for a band.  Thanks!!!

 

terrific and everyone raved! Jill Finkelstein Mount Washington Resort Wedding - August 10, 2013 - Bretton Woods, NH

Everything was excellent! Dave and the One Step Ahead band were terrific and everyone raved!

 

dancing all night! Ellen Durante Alison's Orchards Wedding - July 27, 2013 - Walpole, MA

We and our guests absolutely loved the One Step Ahead band. They were lively and had us up dancing all night!

 

very pleased Mike Crepeau Colonnade Hotel Wedding - July 20, 2013 - Boston, MA

Dave from One Step Ahead was very easy to reach and very responsive. I have had so many people tell us how amazing the band was. In our opinion, a band can make / break a wedding so we were very pleased that they contributed to our amazing night.

 

took the wedding to another level Gareth Hill Belle Mer Wedding - July 13, 2013 - Newport, RI

Hi Dave,

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you and your band again for yesterday evening. You guys were absolutely terrific. We’ve been getting texts and emails all day telling us how awesome the band were. Shout was a personal highlight. Thanks also for letting me do a song with you. It meant the world to my parents and my wife.

Thanks again for everything – you took the wedding to another level and were even better than advertised.

 

OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD. Margaret Gammill Lyman Estate Wedding - July 6, 2013 - Waltham, MA

I just have to say that One Step Ahead was better than I could have ever dreamed they would be! All the musicians were so talented and they played together beautifully. And in terms of voices, and I am really picky here;Giovanni and Lily were OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD. I don’t want to pick a “best part of my wedding, but if forced…I would have to say the band is at the top of my list.

 

spectacular night Robert Hurd Cuttyhunk Island Wedding - June 29, 2013 - New Bedford, MA

Thanks for being so professional and dealing with us (and the island ferry et al). We just had a spectacular night and my wifey actually said One Step Ahead was even better than she imagined! So thank you to one and all!

 

dance floor was packed all night Janine Barker Glen Magna Farms Wedding - May 26, 2013 - Danvers, MA

Hi Dave,

Apologies for taking so long to send you this note but it has been a crazy few weeks since the wedding. I cannot thank you and the band enough! It was AMAZING!!!!

The fact that the band learned & performed the requested songs flawlessly in less than a week was really impressive. I am known to be a ‘perfectionist’ but the band exceeded all my expectations. The dance floor was packed all night and we are getting so many compliments as to how great the band was. We have just watched the video and cannot believe some of the guests that were on the dance floor – from the young to great aunts!!!

You really made our day and the professionalism of the team was exceptional. I would recommend you to anyone and please feel free to use me as a reference.

 

out of this world! Sarah Burke Turner Hill Wedding - June 30, 2012 - Ipsiwch, MA

One Step Ahead was absolutely out of this world! You guys truly made our wedding reception! We had a very fun crowd who was ready to dance, but you really took the party to a whole new level! I have heard so many comments about the wedding, including “where in the world did you get that band?”, “that’s the best band I’ve ever heard at a wedding”, ” the lead singer is the best female vocalist I’ve ever heard”, “they looked like they were having just as much fun as the guests!”, etc, etc.

I hope you did have as much fun as we did, and please do feel free to pass along my name and number to anyone looking for a reference!

 

dancing from start to finish Debbie and Les Paul Seaport Hotel Wedding - September 1, 2012 - Boston, MA

The band was a hit. Everyone, and I do mean everyone, was dancing from start to finish and the extra brass player was fabulous!

 

this band rocked! Vanessa Anderson Publick House Wedding - August 18, 2012 - Sturbridge, MA

I don’t even know where to begin, this band rocked! I don’t think we left the dance floor once at our wedding…I don’t think anyone did!
The band even learned a song that we requested for our bridal party introductions, which was just awesome! They played an incredible mix of current and classic dance tunes. Everyone keeps raving about how fun our wedding was and we really owe this to the band, they definitely kept the party going!

 

terrific and fun night Paul Norton

Dear Dave,

What a terrific and fun night with thanks to you and your band for making it such a wonderful evening. We had a blast and I think it is safe to say so did all of our guests.

Have a safe trip back home and many, many thanks for a great night of music.

 

wonderful performance Erin Sullivan Charter Oaks Country Club Wedding - May 5, 2012 - Hudson, MA

Hi Dave,

I wanted to send you an email to THANK YOU so much for the wonderful performance that you and the band put on at our wedding back on May 5th at Charter Oak. You all far exceeded our expectations and really contributed to all of our guests having an amazing time at our wedding. I cannot tell you how many emails/phone calls we have received from our guests since the wedding that mention what an amazing band we hired , so thank you again.

I hope you guys had as much fun as Mark and I did that night! Thanks again.

 

dancing all night Peter Bello Veronique Ballroom Wedding - April 18, 2009 - Brookline, MA

Thank you Wilson Stevens for another great event. Everyone was up and dancing all night to ONE STEP AHEAD. Alas, I have run out of daughters and weddings (hopefully), so you may not be hearing from me for awhile. Please feel free to use me as a reference.

Thanks again

 

very professional and reliable! Amy Palladino Coonamesett Inn Wedding - Sept. 20, 2008 - Falmouth, MA

We couldn’t have been happier! They exceeded our expectations and our guests were dying to get their card to use them at their next event. Hopefully they enjoyed playing for us as much as we enjoyed them. Dave LeBleu is one of the easiest people to work with…..very professional and reliable!!

We received an overwhelming response to One Step Ahead. They MADE our wedding!!
