an incredible evening! Stephanie Viall Ocean House Wedding - July 23, 2022 - Watch Hill, RI

Hi Dave, 

Thank you so much for an incredible evening! The guests could not stop raving about how fun it was that the singers jumped off the stage and came into the crowd! They also loved when some of the band came outside playing and having a great time to draw them back onto the dance floor! Everything was done perfectly and we loved the positive energy and enthusiasm the band had as well as the amazing lead male singer, female singer and the drummer was so impressive singing and drumming! I loved, too, at the end that the trumpet player jumped onto a chair and other band members, too, to contribute to the fun and we loved the final song! Thank you so much for making our special night so perfect! 

One Step Ahead was wonderful! David Dowell Nantucket Hotel & Resort Wedding - June 24, 2022 - Nantucket, MA

Good morning, Cheryl!

The wedding weekend was fabulous! One Step Ahead was wonderful! The timing, play set, personalities…all perfect!  Thank them all once again for me.  

Can’t say enough. 

All the best!

our guests were raving Anna Handorf Fruitlands Museum Wedding - June 11, 2022 - Harvard, MA

We absolutely LOVED working with One Step Ahead, one of the Wilson Stevens bands. We originally were scheduled to get married in June 2020, but due to COVID postponed to June 2021, and ultimately again to June 2022. WS was so easy to communicate with, and made rescheduling a breeze. As we got closer to the wedding, we loved working with Dave as well. He made our pre-wedding meeting so fun, and got us even more excited for our celebration. The band learned a mashup for our first dance, which was so special. All of our guests were raving about how amazing our music was!! Highly recommend!!

BLEW US AWAY Mary McMahon The Connors Center Wedding - June 4, 2022 - Dover, MA

Music was probably one of the most important things to us and our family going into the wedding, and One Step Ahead BLEW US AWAY. From the get-go, bandleader Dave was a pleasure to work with and both proactively helpful and responsive to any questions or ideas. We had a trio of band members play for cocktail hour and it was perfect – low key and jazzy. At the reception, the full band was EXCEPTIONAL – our guests haven’t stopped gushing about the group since!! We had a big range of ages, musical tastes, reserved/outgoing friends and family, and literally every. single. person danced. Everyone. We cannot thank the band enough for the best party of our life. Hire One Step Ahead. Absolutely would again in a heartbeat.

INCREDIBLE Meredith Burbank Nauticus Marina Wedding - October 2, 2021 - Osterville, MA

Cheryl! I am on my honeymoon until this weekend but I just had to email you…One Step Ahead…my lord, Thank you!!!! The Band was just INCREDIBLE!

Appreciate all of you.

It was such a pleasure Julie Golicz Pine Orchard Yacht & Country Club Wedding - September 18, 2021 - Branford, CT

It was such a pleasure working with all of you. Please let everyone in One Step Ahead know how fantastic we think the are!! We had a great time. One more child to marry off, we’ll be in touch soon 😉

packed the floor Julie Niepokoj Wychmere Beach Club Wedding - July 17, 2021 - Harwich Port, MA

Everyone I encountered from WS was so professional. OSA was talented, energetic, packed the floor and did everything we asked!

a fantastic time Sabrina Memme L'andana Wedding - May 30, 2021 - Burlington, MA

Andrew and I just got back from our honeymoon and are finally getting to catching up on some emails. Thank you so much for everything. One Step Ahead’s chemistry really made the night one to remember. Our family and friends had a fantastic time and we had so much fun dancing the night away! Thank you for being part of our special day!

an absolute party Kellie Coveney Nantucket Yacht Club Wedding - September 14, 2019 - Nantucket, ME

One step ahead was an absolute party – they were extremely talented and had our wedding dancing all night! They killed it with Shallow and played tons of new/current songs – which we really appreciated. I had multiple people ask me for their contact information after the wedding!

In addition to the talented band, Tim was the best and an absolute pleasure to work with! He was extremely communicative and thoughtful and offered his advice and guidance throughout the wedding process. He held my hand throughout the process and offered superior customer service. Despite everything he has going on, I always felt like I could reach out to him as a resource or to ask questions regarding my wedding.

It was a pleasure Sarah Goodwin, Creative Director/Owner of Daisies & Pearls Point Lookout Resort & Conference Center Wedding - September 7, 2019 - Northport, ME

Good Morning Dave!

Thank you and the band for helping to make Katie and Andy’s wedding day perfect. It was a pleasure working with you.

insanely talented Frances Milliken Asticou Inn Wedding - August 24, 2019 - Northeast Harbor, ME

One Step Ahead was insanely talented and went above and beyond at every opportunity! Thank you!

absolutely incredible Caroline McDonough Newport Beach House Wedding - August 10, 2019 - Middletown, RI

Hi Dave,

Thank you all again so much for making our night so special. The music was absolutely incredible and we’re still hearing from guests that it was one of the most fun and exciting dance floors they’ve ever been on! I know they would all recommend One Step Ahead in a heartbeat.

Feel free to send along any review sites that we can leave our comments on. We’d be happy to!

We had such a great time Amy Grosheider & Jimmy Quinn Chatham Bars Inn Wedding - August 3, 2019 - Chatham, MA

Dave,

I wanted to reach out and thank you and the rest of One Step Ahead so much for a great time at my wedding on August 3rd! We just got back a few photos from Kelly Cronin Photography I thought you might want to see – especially from when Justin got out onto the dance floor to limbo with all our guests WHILE belting it out. We had such a great time and so did our family and friends!

We’ve already recommended you to an acquaintance getting married on Cape Cod in 2020.

Thank you again!

people could not believe how great you all were Jon and Emily Igoe Mount Washington Resort Wedding - June 15, 2019 - Bretton Woods, NH

We cannot thank you enough – you guys were absolutely amazing! Everything was perfect and we really appreciated you accommodating all of our requests, no matter how strange! One Step Ahead is a phenomenal band and the new singers are spectacular – people could not believe how great you all were and told us as much both during the reception and the following day. You guys knew exactly what to play and how to keep everyone on the dance floor all night, which is exactly what we were hoping for. Thanks so much again we cannot tell you how much it meant to us.

We’ve heard from multiple guests who were beyond impressed Erin & David Johnston Harborview Jones Landing - Peaks Island Wedding - June 1, 2019 - Portland, MA

Hi Dave,

David and I are back from our honeymoon and we can’t stop talking about how fun our wedding was! We’ve heard from multiple guests who were beyond impressed with One Step Ahead.  The dance floor was full the ENTIRE night! The Harborview venue coordinator even reached out after the wedding to find out who our incredible band was – she’s going to start recommending you to any couples asking about music at their wedding.

Thank you for making June 1st a night to remember! We loved having One Step Ahead perform.

the entire band was amazing and wonderful Lynn Picano Nantucket Hotel & Resort Wedding - October 6, 2018 - Nantucket, MA

A great big thank you for an exceptional performance by the One Step Ahead band at our daughter, Cara’s wedding, this past weekend at The Nantucket Hotel. Everyone loved the music! The cocktail duo and the entire band was amazing and wonderful. Thank you for the many telephone calls, emails and texts, you kindly received in answering our concerns. We would highly recommend your company to anyone.

EVERYONE raved Morgan Bunting Sankaty Head Golf Club Wedding - September 22, 2018 - Nantucket, MA

Thanks again for being SOOO AMAZING at our wedding. We are just getting back from our honeymoon so I am catching up on emails!! EVERYONE raved about you OneStepAhead!!!

One Step Ahead was outrageously wonderful Ellen Alberding Outermost Inn Wedding - September 15, 2018 - Aquinnah, MA

Dave, One Step Ahead was outrageously wonderful. I thought your keyboard player might get a laugh out of the photo below. His virtuosity did not go unnoticed by our Jewish friends. (He was amazing, riffing on various prayers like a cantor). As for my Irish Catholic brothers, they were like “whaaa?”  And then leapt right into the dance. 

Thanks and hope you had fun too!

We love you guys Bethany Camp Aldrich Mansion Wedding - June 2, 2018 - Warwick, RI

We love you guys, thank you for everything. Our wedding was extra special with you there and we will absolutely tell everyone about One Step Ahead!

PS- Dave is a saxophone player too, So he loved Jayo on the sax 🙂

Thanks again!

we had a fantastic experience Laura Griffin The Hotel Northampton Wedding - December 31, 2017 - Northampton, MA

One Step Ahead was so vibrant! Our guest couldn’t say enough about the band. We had a fantastic experience and I can’t thank them enough for making our wedding day magical!

we got nothing but compliments Tonia & Max Tassinari Venezia On The Waterfront Wedding - November 11, 2017 - Quincy, MA

Thank you so much for everything! You made our night truly special and a whole lot of fun!!! We got nothing but compliments from our guests on the music.

We will be sure to recommend you to all of our family and friends!

you will certainly be on the top of my recommendation list Kristen Pinksten Aldrich Mansion Wedding - October 28, 2017 - Warwick, RI

Hi Dave,

THANK YOU for a remarkable evening! 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. You all did a wonderful job keeping the group on the dance floor and having fun, and weaving in songs that made it even more special for Will and I.

Thank you again – you will certainly be on the top of my recommendation list.

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.

Kudos to a fantastic evening! Lindsay Horne Chequessett Yacht & Country Club Wedding - September 9, 2017 - Wellfleet, MA

Hi Justin,

a great night Peter L. Keane Great Harbor Yacht Club Wedding - June 3, 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.

I cannot thank you and One Step Ahead for such an incredible night! You guys were absolutely unbelievable! I have received so many compliments and so many people telling me how awesome you guys were!

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.
