best band I've ever heard! Jerry Feeney Trapp Family Lodge Wedding - August 7, 2021 - Stowe, VT

Hey Justin & Tim,

I’m in between the going away breakfast this morning and packing to head out of town. I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say that Protege was absolutely freaking phenomenal last night. That’s all people were talking about this morning at breakfast. The energy was incredible, the individual talent was unbelievable and their professionalism was outstanding. I’m not going to get into the details right now, but that group of musicians was the best band I’ve ever heard!

I cannot thank you enough for all of your assistance in helping make last night a very special event for my baby daughter!

We are so grateful Laura DellaFera Wadsworth Mansion Wedding - June 19, 2021 - Middletown, CT

My new husband and I are both professional classically trained musicians- and we were blown away by the band. They were excellent and the highlight of the reception! All of our guests were raving about the band. Protege was just wonderful!

As an aside, Justin, Katlin, and Cheryl were all incredible! Very responsive, and incredibly flexible throughout the pandemic, FOUR different wedding dates, and many changes to the contract. We are so grateful that they were so easy to work with.

so full of energy Lauren Donovan The Red Barn at Outlook Farm Wedding - April 24, 2021 - South Berwick, ME

We absolutely loved working with Protege! They were so amazing at our wedding. People were on the dance floor the whole time and it made for such a fun wedding!! We received so many comments from our guests on how wonderful the band was, how they played a wide range of music and how they made the night a blast! We couldn’t have asked for a better night. The band was great to work with, the emcee was flexible and very approachable and all of the band members were so full of energy. We can’t thank you guys enough for making our wedding so memorable! We had so much fun that my husband said that he would pay to come see Protege in concert. Thank you guys so much for a wonderful night!!

BIG thank you for all you did Diana Chouinard Jonathan Edwards Winery Wedding - August 29, 2020 - N. Stonington, CT

Tim, Katlin, and Team,

A long overdue but BIG thank you for all you did to make Justine and Kevin’s August wedding a memorable one! Though it’s been the strangest, and easily one of the most heartbreaking years, their day is a bright spot and always will be. I appreciate you all being a part of that!

Here’s to a restful and happy holiday season! Thanks again!

We all danced all night Maryellen Hussey The Dennis Inn Wedding - October 19, 2019 - Dennis, MA

The wedding was so beautiful. Protege is the main reason why the wedding was awesome. Excellent communication with Katlin. Just awesome. Quick response and extremely pleasant. Joy to work with. Everyone loved the band. We all danced all night. Great reviews from all our guest. Thank you so much.

We were on cloud nine the entire night Lauren & John Keating Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club Wedding - September 7, 2019 - Brewster, MA

John and I truly cannot thank you enough for providing the best entertainment we ever could have imagined at our wedding in September! We can both still remember all the amazing music that you played like it was yesterday!

We were on cloud nine the entire night and it truly wouldn’t have been the same without you guys there. Every single one of our guests raved about you guys for good reason- talented is a huge understatement!  🙂

Katlin and Justin,

You were both so great and responsive with all the planning leading up to our big day! We hope to see you again in the future! Thanks again for everything.

We’re so grateful Shelby & Garrett Hasanbasic The Northfield Golf Club Wedding - August 31, 2019 - Northfield, MA

Justin, Katlin, Protege & Wilson Stevens Productions Team,

Thank you for an amazing night! You are all so wonderful to work with and made our night so special! We hear all the time how awesome the band was at our wedding! We’re so grateful we were able to work together, thank you!

so great to work with Christina & Peter The Atlantic Resort Wedding - August 24, 2019 - Newport, RI

Katlin & Cheryl,

Protege was fantastic and so was the lighting! Thank you guys for everything, it’s been so great to work with all of you!

incredibly professional Todd Riccardi Venezia on the Waterfront Wedding - August 17, 2019 - Dorchester, MA

Hi Justin and Katlin,

I just wanted to thank you again so much for working with Stephanie and I to have Protege play at our wedding. They were amazing performers and such nice people! Leah came up to our bridal suite and spoke with us prior to the reception just to make sure everything was good to go.

You were both so incredibly professional and easy to worth with. Stephanie was very impressed with Katlin’s organization.

you all brought amazing, positive energy Emme & Tripp Private Residence Wedding - July 20, 2019 - Westport Point, MA

Dear Protege,

Thank you so much for making our wedding night so special! You did an incredible job reading the energy of our guests and playing the perfect songs. We have had so many guests tell us it was the best band they have ever heard! Despite the heat, you all brought amazing, positive energy and we could not have asked for a better dance floor vibe. Wr had such a great time, thank you!

one of the best nights of the year Colleen Feeney Wychmere Beach Club Wedding - June 29, 2019 - Harwich Port, MA

The band was amazing!!! All our guests are still raving about what an amazing time they had and how they were dancing all night – truly one of the best nights of the year!! Thank you so much Protege!

They were INCREDIBLE last night at our wedding Sarah Kalish Wychmere Beach Club Wedding - June 16, 2019 - Harwich Port, MA

Hi Katlin and Justin,

First off, a big thank you to you guys and to the Protege band. They were INCREDIBLE last night at our wedding! Guests kept coming up to us on the dance floor to tell us how great they thought the band was – and my uncle who was a concert promoter for a long time said he thought they were among the best bands he’s seen at any wedding, period. They played with such energy, enthusiasm, and polish. Having them get people on the dance floor and keeping them there with fantastic song selection and style turned what was already a special night into an unforgettable one.

Everyone displayed excellent musicianship Michelle Sutton Omni Parker House Hotel Wedding - October 20, 2018 - Boston, MA

Protege was simply phenomenal. Everyone displayed excellent musicianship. We are musicians ourselves, and many of our guests in attendance are musicians as well, so it was important to us to hire a band of high caliber. Protege did not disappoint! Our guests are still talking about how much they enjoyed dancing and watching the band perform. The pianist who played for our ceremony was wonderful; we had specific covers of songs that we wanted to incorporate into our ceremony and he replicated them beautifully.

All of the representatives we spoke with, from Tim to Katlin as the wedding date approached, were professional and knowledgeable. They were great about answering all of our questions and were truly a pleasure to work with.

We have been recommending Wilson Stevens bands to all of our friends for future weddings! We couldn’t have been more satisfied with their performance and the planning process throughout.

they made my wedding that much better Jill Damico Samoset Resort Wedding - August 11, 2018 - Rockport, ME

Everyone couldn’t stop raving about the band. Protege was excellent and they made my wedding that much better.

we couldn’t be happier. Christina Proulx Peabody Essex Museum Wedding - August 4, 2018 - Salem, MA

We couldn’t be any happier with using Wilson Stevens. By hosting several events in the Boston area, it makes it extremely easy to see all the bands that they manage perform. Wilson Stevens handles everything, from providing the song lists to the questionnaire and all the little details. This made it very easy to get information and questions answered quickly. Katlin was very responsive with our never ending emails with questions. Not only do they manage the bands, but they also provide uplighting for the event. The uplighting was exactly how we pictured it, and we couldn’t be happier. Justin was able to answer any questions about the types of lights and how many he felt we needed for the venue. Wilson Stevens was awesome, and we have recommended them to our recently engaged friends!

We wish we could do it again! Emily (Herrick) & Mike Warren Warwick Country Club Wedding - July 21, 2018 - Warwick, RI

Dear Justin, Katlin, Wilson Stevens & members of Protege, Thank you so much for all of the help planning before the wedding and for the best performance ever on our wedding day! We had so much fun dancing, singing and stealing the mic from you on the dance floor!

Our guests are still raving about how much fun they had at our wedding and it was all because of you! I think that was some of the best dancing and singing the Warwick Country Club has ever seen! Thanks for helping us have the best wedding ever! We wish we could do it again!

Thank you thank you thank you!!! Steph Ricci Mount Hope Farm Wedding - July 14, 2018 - Bristol, RI

Protege was above and beyond what I expected. All my guests were raving about them, what a talented group of artists:) Thank you thank you thank you!!!

They were absolutely wonderful Lara Marie Edmonds Longshore Pavilion Wedding - June 30, 2018 - Norwalk, CT

Protege was absolutely PHENOMENAL!! Our guests continue to reach out to absolutely rave about the band !! The most important part things for us when planning our wedding were the music and the food. We had seen Groovin You’ at a friend’s wedding a few years ago and were very impressed – we were so glad that there were a few Wilson Stevens bands still available when we reached out about our wedding date. We loved Protege’s vibe. They were absolutely wonderful – great musicians, super cool vibe, fabulous entertainers out on the dance floor with our guests, true professionals reading the crowd and choosing appropriate songs during the course of the night. Protege made our wedding incredible!! Thank you!!

They created exactly the party we were hoping for Julia Goldenheim Institute of Contemporary Art Wedding - June 16, 2018 - Boston, MA

I can’t say enough good things about Protege and Wilson Stevens! First of all, I can’t even begin to count the number of people that came up to me at the wedding, the next day, and still, weeks later, to tell me how amazing Protege was! They created exactly the party we were hoping for and kept the whole crowd dancing all night. Yesterday, nearly 4 weeks after the wedding, a friend said to me that one of the songs that Protege played was “literally the best wedding dance party moment I’ve ever experienced.” Later, we had so much fun hanging out with the members of the band, who were all so down to earth, nice, and fun. I can’t think of anyone better to have play at a wedding! I was also so impressed with the management from Wilson Stevens. Katlin was responsive and thoughtful, and Wilson Stevens, along with the venue, took care of all the details so that we didn’t have to think about it! They just did their jobs exceptionally well, taking all of that off of my plate. Thank you Protege and Wilson Stevens!

the dance floor was packed all evening Megan Woonton Crane Estate Wedding - June 9, 2018 - Ipswich, MA

Protege was so amazing! They did a great job and the dance floor was packed all evening until the end of the event! Leah was so fantastic as the band leader and so easy to work with. 

I would definitely book them again! Allison Gearing-Kalill Sheraton Springfield Wedding - June 2, 2018 - Springfield, MA

Tim,

Protege was amazing, very easy to work with. I would definitely book them again!

Thank you!

We received countless compliments Amy Ojena Elm Bank Horticulture Center Wedding - May 27, 2018 - Wellesley, MA

We received countless compliments from our guests on how great the band was. Protege did an amazing job of keeping the energy level up for the entire wedding and their performance kept people on the dance floor all night. We are so happy with our choice and would use them again in a heartbeat!

they did not disappoint in the least Jamie Waters Ocean Gateway Wedding - May 19, 2018 - Portland, ME

My sister had Protege play at her wedding and we loved them, so were hired them for ours and they did not disappoint in the least. Everybody had a blast and was dancing until the last song (including an encore!). I cannot recommend Protege enough and working with Wilson Stevens was painless and could not have gone smoother.

Very professional Wade Leveille Lombardo’s Event - December 16, 2017 - Randolph, MA

Protege was excellent once again. They’re easy to work, appropriately dressed and very professional.

Even our mothers were dancing Brian Saligman Sankaty Head Golf Club Wedding - September 30, 2017 - Siasconset, MA

The process was trouble free and Protege’s performance was spectacular. Even our mothers were dancing, can’t ask for more than that!

Where do I begin?! Julie Lavery Publick House Historic Inn Wedding - September 23, 2017 - Sturbridge, MA

Where do I begin?! Starting with the ceremony, they were on time, professional and spot -on with the timing of the ceremony music. Moving onto the reception, Protege made our night so incredibly special. We are a family who loves to dance and the band kept the party going with great song after great song. Their musicianship and talent is top of the line. Sometimes I had to glance over and see if the band was actually playing because it was SO good I thought it might be a track. I cannot tell you how many times my friends and family came up to me during the night yelling, “this band is amazing!”

Of course, I already knew that you guys would kill it because for a brief period of time I was a singer in Splash, and I remember the amount of care and practice that went in to each wedding. From the bottom of Spencer and I’s hearts, THANK YOU for being such an amazing part of our special night.

we wish we could relive this experience every weekend Lori Andrew The Lord Jeffery Inn Wedding - September 16, 2017 - Amherst, MA

We cannot say enough good things about PROTEGE! Rewinding to when we found PROTEGE online – Wilson Stevens and the whole PROTEGE team was extremely responsive, accommodating and flexible. We started with hiring them for the reception and added on services over the months leading up to our wedding. We had the absolute best time every second of the day. We were lucky enough for some of their band to join us for the ceremony and cocktail hour as well. They played instrumental versions of some of our favorite songs that made for special touches during the procession and recession. During the cocktail hour they played a great variety of instrumental music that set a relaxed mood for the afternoon. 

Then from the second that we did the wedding party entrance, with Leah giving a great introduction, all the way through to the end of the night, PROTEGE kept every single guest on the dance floor. They had a wide range of songs, playing what we selected and playing to the crowds energy. At points of the night, we couldn’t tell if our wedding guests were feeding off of PROTEGE’s energy or if PROTEGE was feeding off of the wedding guests’ energy – it was seamless and immersive. We wish we could relive this experience every weekend. Wilson Stevens and PROTEGE was flexible even down to the final hours leading up to the wedding. When we arrived at our wedding venue the weekend of, we found out that we had the space for an additional half hour beyond what we had initially contracted the band for. We worked with Katlin and Cheryl to coordinate having one of the band members DJ for the last half hour of our reception so that we could continue the party right down to the last minute. I’m not sure that a single guest ate the cake because everyone was too busy dancing all night. I cannot recommend PROTEGE and Wilson Stevens more!!

everything was flawless! Andrea Schmid Taconic Hotel Wedding - September 9, 2017 - Manchester, VT

Protege was absolutely amazing! Everyone was on the dance floor the entire time…. even before dinner! I will recommend them to all of my friends and family for any future events!

I wouldn’t change a thing.   Sharon Bridburg Samberg Conference Center at MIT Wedding - September 2, 2017 - Cambridge, MA

Protege was absolutely perfect! I loved every single song and they had everyone up and dancing. I’m still hearing from people. Everyone commented favorably on how Leah came out and shook her tamborine and danced on the floor. We loved it! 

Thank you so much for making our special night so wonderful! I wouldn’t change a thing.  

The wedding was great! Jesse Ram Jay Peak Wedding - August 20, 2017 - Jay, VT

The wedding was great! Protege really fed off of the energy put out from the dance floor. We would recommend them to everyone!!!

The perfect wedding band. Kristyn Grybko Deerfield Academy Wedding - August 5, 2017 - Deerfield, MA

Protege were fantastic!! Polite, fun, energetic and respectful. The perfect wedding band. Thank you!!!

Dear Tim and Katlin,

Words can scarcely express our gratitude. The wonderful music of Protege set the stage for a truly joyous family event, from the lovely jazz at cocktail hour, to the truly epic second line parade, to the couple’s last dance.

The dance floor was packed throughout the evening, and band members not only provided an exceptional performance, but added to the fun of the event with their cheerful presences. What a terrific group of people. We are so glad to have met them. Please pass along our thanks!
