It is with pure joy and gratitude that we thank you, and your fantastic band, The Connection, for your outstanding role in Danielle and Rohan's epic wedding celebration! Your professionalism and talent were apparent from our very first phone conversation. Your enthusiasm is infectious, and your joy for life, and love of music, sets the stage, even before you ever set foot on the actual stage! From the onset, you listened to our needs, and made our family feel both unique and special. As a mother planning a wedding, this is both wonderful, and so very important.
From your technical guidance and assistance with the ceremony equipment for our "officiant" son, David, to the Father/Daughter dance, First couple dance, to the fantastic welcome of our guests to the Hora, I knew the evening would be full of energy, joy and love. You are an outstanding master of ceremonies, and your band is professional, high energy and very talented. From the moment we entered the room, no one wanted to leave the dance floor, and all of our guests raved about The Connection! Danielle and Rohan said you played all their favorite songs - we all didn't want to evening to end, as was apparent by the FULL dance floor after the last song! Plus, my husband, Roberts surprise of "La Bamba" still has guests singing your praises - and Robert's too! To say this is an evening we will always cherish for a lifetime is an understatement. We will relive the true connection our families and friends made that magical night in June when hearts became one, cultures were joined and celebrated, and new bonds were made. Through music, love and joy - Joey Scott and The Connection helped bring out the very BEST of our world in a true celebration of what is right about the human spirit! It was a magical evening, and we are forever grateful for your role, and that of your fantastic band! Rock on my friend! Rock on!-Beth Sackstein Beantown - May 28, 2017
I wanted to tell you how wonderful Beantown was. The energy from your band as well as the crowd was amazing. So many people have told us how special the band was and we completely agree. The Finklers heard you play at a wedding they previously attended in Boston and they really pushed to hire you and I now see why; we couldn’t have asked for anything more!
We look forward to partying with you again at my niece’s wedding in September. Please express our exuberance and thank you to the entire band! The wedding was perfect!-Susan Gold Protege - April 1, 2017

My wedding day and night was the most amazing experience in my entire life and Beantown was a HUGE part of it. From months before the wedding, they were answering all of my emails with great detail, humor, attention, the day of the wedding they made me feel so well heard and taken care of, and that evening their music, was beyond amazing. They have so much energy, spirit, talent, and enthusiasm. They music they played at my ceremony was so touching and special; the cocktail hour was light and fun. The reception was the biggest and best party ever. They knew how to play to my guests and catered to all generations that were there. I felt such a connection to them and still have guests telling me that my band was incredible. My husband and I had a special first dance and Beantown made us feel like we owned the dance floor I would recommend Beantown to anyone and everyone. Thank you Tim, Anita and the rest of the band for making me feel like the most special bride!-Emily Beck Beantown - August 17, 2014
Anita and Tim and the whole band were amazing - they kept everyone on the dance floor be it during the amazing Hora and the rest of the evening until the wee hours of the morning. Anita and the band had a great rapport with the audience. Great band! Great evening! We got lots of compliments on the selection of Beantown.-Ben & Denise Battat EYE2EYE - May 24, 2014
Eye 2 Eye was fantastic. We had a lot of guests from New York and New Jersey. They were over the top with this band. Thank you again for everything. It was all perfect!!! See you at the next affair.-Lisa and Peter Honig The Connection - November 23, 2013
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for the most OUTSTANDING performance at Andrew and Sharon's wedding! As usual, you were absolutely exceptional! Our out of town company just left a few minutes ago, and before we sit down to relax, I couldn't wait to send you a note of extreme appreciation! The music was absolutely wonderful and set the tone for a wondrous and fun evening. Your voice is pure bliss and the musicians were positively excellent! We were honored to have had you performing at our son and daughter-in-law's wedding reception. We feel so very fortunate to have had you and your band! It was a fabulous, romantic "storybook" wedding reception and we thank you!-The Pollards EYE2EYE - November 9, 2013
You folks are awesome! Thank you for making Sara and Lee’s Wedding day so much fun and so delightful. You rocked the house with your fantastic mix of music and your incredible talent ,and you made an absolutely memorable and enjoyable evening for everyone. Our guests can’t stop talking about how great the band and music was! I know ,speaking for the entire Saba family, that you made us very,very happy—we had a blast. And thank you Penni and Larry for being so sensitive to our requests (eg.learning and singing the song “Always”,playing the special song for each of my daughters.etc.). You folks are absolutely the best, and the entertainment that you provided at this special day for the Saba’s and Sher’s was over the top. I sure hope that we can do it again!! Please give my thanks to all your colleagues in the group.
Best wishes always-Frank Splash! - September 7, 2013
Everything was perfect- can’t think of a negative thing to say.-Matt Sousa EYE2EYE - October 10, 2010
They were fantastic! People were up and dancing all night and loving every minute of it. Penni was so easy to talk to and the entire band was beyond helpful and accommodating. WE really felt lucky to have had them be at our children's wedding. Please be sure to let them know they were just superb!-Janet Schwartz Beantown - May 23, 2009
1) Quality of Music: Excellent. Fantastic - they are a talented group of musicians. I was amazed how they could often both sing and play several instruments.
2) Choice of Music: Excellent. Our crowd (275 people of mixed ages) was going all night. They did a great job of playing for everyone.
3) Grooming and Attire: Excellent.
4) Emceeing: Excellent.
5) Break Schedule: Excellent. They took one break and played for most of the night. The crowd couldn't get enough of them.
6) Use Wilson Stevens again?: Yes. It was easy to work with Rachele and Tim Wilson was also very helpful and available to answer some of our initial questions. Anita was really kind and great at helping us to finalize the details for the reception logistics. Her recommendations helped everything run so smoothly.
7) Use artist again?: Yes.
Beantown is AMAZING. They really made our wedding day. In fact, a month after our wedding we are still receiving emails that our wedding was "the best ever" and that it was like a "concert" because the band was so good. Beantown had our crowd of 275 (of mixed ages) dancing all night -- from the first dance on. The dance floor was packed all night long. We had a large dance floor and people had to dance on the carpet! Beantown has a VERY talented group of musicians. I was amazed that each member played at least one instrument and did vocals. One of the many reasons we picked them because of they could play such a breadth of songs and they did a fantastic job with our first dance song, which is very new. I highly recommend Beantown and really hope to get invited to another event where they are playing.-Michelle Lentine Kenney Beantown - July 13, 2008

“Beantown was the best investment we made for the wedding-- the wedding was 2+ weeks ago, and people are still calling saying how amazing they were. People danced from the minute they came into the room, until 11:30pm-- no one left early, and the dance floor was completely filled ALL night! we LOVED the way they interacted w/ the crowd (esp bringing the groom up on stage to jam!) and loved how they were out on the dance floor getting people really into it. Everyone in the band made us feel so special, and the night flowed seamlessly b/c of them. I have so many positive thoughts and feelings about Beantown, that I could go on all day! Best decision that we made about the wedding, and I would recommend them to EVERYONE! we knew they were going to be awesome, but they completely surpassed our already high expectations! Thank you SOOOO much for everything-- both wilson stevens productions and beantown were a pleasure to work with! would pick them again in a heartbeat!”-Jessica Denino
