blown away with the band Kara & Andrew Artists for Humanity Epicenter Wedding - October 12, 2019 - Boston, MA

I cannot begin to thank The Connection enough for being such a BIG part of our wedding day at the AFH Epicenter!! As a family who has extremely high expectations for dancing, I can say we were blown away with the band as were all of our guests! We’ve already gotten several people asking us to share the name for their own events! The electric piano during the ceremony was EXACTLY what I pictured – I didn’t get to tell him myself (I was too busy dancing) so please pass along a HUGE thank you! I know I had very specific requests and you accommodated all of it.

Also, thank you to Katlin and Justin who have helped so much along the way! You have been beyond responsive and eased my nerves going into the day.

Please pass this along to everyone involved!!!

Absolutely unbelievable Lindsay Quinn The Inn on Peaks Island Wedding - October 5, 2019 - Peaks Island, ME

AMAZING! I cannot say enough good things. You answered all of our questions and helped us work through any issues we may of had. We loved everything about The Connection. Our guests are still talking about how good the band was. Our dance floor was packed all night long. A very good mix of old and new. Absolutely unbelievable. We had the best time, and all of our family and friends are still talking about how fun the wedding was. It was truly the best night of our lives. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

enthusiasm and talent Margot Connolly Boston Public Library Wedding - September 7, 2019 - Boston, MA

We couldn’t have been happier that The Connection was part of our wedding day — from start to finish, the whole Wilson stevens crew was incredibly easy to work with, communicative, and professional. Night of, the enthusiasm and talent the band brought were amazing!! We’re still getting compliments from our guests even after the weekend is over!!

"One more song, one more song!" Cyndee and Charles Radziewicz Boston Harbor Hotel Wedding - August 10, 2019 - Boston, MA

Dear Katlin and the entire band/sound technicians from The Connection,

I wanted to take a moment to ensure that you were properly thanked for your work for our daughter’s wedding at the Boston Harbor Hotel. From the music at the ceremony, the musicians at the cocktail hour through the band at the wedding – You all did a GREAT job!

My guests LOVED the band and it showed, especially at the end when the whole dance floor chanted “One more song, one more song!” Even some guests who couldn’t join on the floor said they were singing along every song from their seats. We loved when you joined in the crowd on the dance floor – this made the party! We had a tough crowd too – there were many professional dancers as guests who didn’t hold back!

We loved your musical selections, the sound was rich and the vocalists were fantastic! Thank you again for making our kids wedding day so special.

#thatbandthough Jessica Raymond Black Swan Country Club Wedding - August 3, 2019 - Georgetown, MA

The band was the best part of the reception. People are still talking about them and will continue! The instruments were amazing, the singers’ voices were amazing and the songs were perfect for the crowd! Our friends who posted after the wedding put the hashtag #thatbandthough which says a lot! I cannot say thank you enough to the band and Wilson Stevens. A lot of our friends are getting married within the next couple years so if they were smart they would have The Connection 😉

They topped off the event perfectly Barbara and Steven Loh Seacoast Science Center Wedding - August 2, 2019 - Rye, NH

The band was phenomenal!! They interacted with the guests and the dance floor was full all night. Everyone commented on how great the band “The Connection” was. Wonderful band for our wedding, We would recommend them to everyone! They topped off the event perfectly!

LOOOVED Amy Inlow Cliff House Wedding - July 13, 2019 - Cape Neddick, ME

Just wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for making our wedding day special. Everyone, including myself, LOOOVED the connection. That’s all I heard all night.

they were absolutely fabulous Libby Johnson Beauport Hotel Wedding - July 12, 2019 - Gloucester, ME

Hi Justin,

I was wondering if you could let me know where the best place would be to leave a review for The Connection. I want to make sure to leave one ASAP…they were absolutely fabulous at our wedding this past Friday! I never had a chance to thank them personally, but I have had so many people already tell me that our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to and that the band was the best band they have ever seen and the best entertainment they have ever had at a wedding by far! Everyone was so impressed by them, and I truly believe they made our wedding. I just wish I could have had more time to dance but got caught up talking for too long! I hope they end up playing at another wedding I attend as a guest. 🙂

Thank you!

It was the perfect playlist! Marcie and Jeff Jonas Boston Harbor Hotel Wedding - June 30, 2019 - Boston, MA

We had a wonderful time and we are so happy we chose The Connection for our wedding. They worked with us for off-repertoire songs that we wanted. The music was exceptional- the choices were appropriate for our multigenerational crowd and had the dance floor packed all night! It was the perfect playlist!! Our guests are still raving about the music! Thanks for being the best band ever!!

ENGAGING without being cheesy Molly Brauer Asticou Inn Wedding - June 22, 2019 - Northeast Harbor, ME

I am THRILLED that I chose The Connection to play at my wedding. Having a good band was a priority of mine and they totally exceeded my expectations. They were FUN and ENGAGING without being cheesy. Their dance moves were awesome 🙂 and they played my requested songs which was really fun. Thank you thank you to The Connection for being an absolute BLAST!

guests can’t stop talking about the performance Shannon Carroll Indian Pond Country Club Wedding – May 11, 2019 - Kingston, MA

I cannot begin to thank Wilson Stevens enough for making our wedding day absolutely SPECTACULAR. It has always been my dream to have a band at my wedding day, and you all exceeded my expectations and then some. The Connection was amazing and did not miss a beat. My wedding guests can’t stop talking about the performance. My husband and I are beyond overjoyed at the outcome. You absolutely made our wedding day without a doubt. We want you to play at all our family events!! 🙂

The Connection outdid themselves!!! Jennifer Pierce Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel Event - May 9, 2019 - Boston, MA

The band was so interactive and personal! Everyone was engaged and the band kept up all night! Joey was awesome and The Connection outdid themselves!!! Super pleased!!!

so thrilled Patricia kupper New Haven Lawn Club Wedding – April 27, 2019 - New Haven, CT

We and all our guests were so thrilled with The Connection!! Thank you for making our day magical!

better than I expected Caitlin Beresin Mountain Top Inn & Resort Wedding – March 30, 2019 - Chittenden, VT

I booked this band before I even booked my venue. I saw them once before and knew I needed them at my wedding. I had great discussions with Tim, Katlin, Joey, and the whole gang. Everything was amazing! The Connection performed better than I expected and all the guests are still talking about how awesome they were. We have all lost our voices from singing on the dance floor — SO WORTH IT! Thank you SO MUCH for everything!

the entire band was just phenomenal Nicole Howard Royal Sonesta Hotel Wedding – November 3, 2018 - Cambridge, MA

The entire band was just phenomenal. I honestly cannot say enough about how great they were from start to finish. We heard from many of our guests that the band was by far the best they had ever heard at a wedding. We completely agree.

If only I had a 5th daughter Gary Lockberg Braeburn Country Club Wedding – October 13, 2018 - Newton, MA

We couldn’t be happier… constant comments on the quality of band. The lead singers connected with the audience, you could tell they enjoy it, they were not just “doing a job”. If only I had a 5th daughter we could do it again! Thank you!

The compliments we've received are amazing Raisa and Paul Levine Seaport Boston Hotel Wedding – October 6, 2018 - Boston, MA

Tim and Katlin,

I want to thank you for such a wonderful event from The Connection and Fantasia Strings. The compliments we’ve received are amazing. The Connection exceeded all expectations. Fantasia Strings were incredible.
Please let them both know how wonderful they both were.

We loved how interactive the band was Julie Czerepak Institute of Contempory Art Wedding – September 29, 2018 - Boston, MA

We wanted to extend a HUGE thank you for being so wonderful to work with. You and The Connection helped make the day more perfect than we could have ever imagined. The flow worked perfectly and transitioned nicely from the theater to the party downstairs in the lobby.It was so much fun following the band members downstairs & immediately opening up the dance floor.From that point until the end of the night, I don’t think TJ and I left the dance floor because we were having so much fun. We loved how interactive the band was – it was the best dance party! We had a number of our guests that came up to us and said that The Connection was the best wedding band they’ve ever seen.Not only did you guys do such a wonderful job performing, all of the band members were so sweet.

Wish we could do it all over again! Jane Duhamel Gurney's Newport Resort & Marina Wedding – September 15, 2018 - Newport, RI

The Connection exceeded all expectations and was the highlight of our wedding reception! They were high energy, interacted with the crowd, and knew exactly what songs to play to get everyone on the dance floor. The dance floor was packed all night and our guests are still talking about how amazing the band was! Wish we could do it all over again!

We will always have that first dance as an incredible memory Jeff Cohen Private Residence Wedding – September 8, 2018 - Ogunquit, ME

Just wanted to thank you again for such an incredible night. So many people have told us this was the best wedding they have ever been to, and each time the band is one of the main reasons why! The Connection really killed it. Every song was fabulous, the guests were entertained and dancing all night!< I was also very happy with how me and Shea’s first dance turned out. We will always have that first dance as an incredible memory, so thank you! Thanks so much again!

we are so grateful Amanda Miller Willowdale Estate Wedding – September 7, 2018 - Topsfield, MA

Apologies on the delayed message here, we are just returning home from our little post-wedding Nantucket getaway. It gave us some time to reflect on everything, and we wanted to thank you, and the whole band again for all the hard work you guys put in at our wedding. You guys were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING…. you killed it all night long and kept that dance floor packed… people keep calling us and raving about how good the band was. The party most definitely wouldn’t have been the same without you guys. Just thought you should know that you were an absolute pleasure to work with. we will most definitely be recommending The Connection to friends in the future. Again, thank you so much…we are so grateful.

everything we could have ever dreamed! Suzie Santopolo Hunter Mountain Resort Wedding – September 2, 2018 - Hunter, NY

Let me just start by saying that we had never seen The Connection in person before our wedding day, nor had we met anyone in the band. All of our expectations were met and then some! Everyone’s first comment at our brunch the next day was, “That band! They were awesome, where did you find them?!” We asked for energy and boy did we get it. The dance floor was full the entire night and they nailed every song they played. We even asked them to learn a song for our first dance and it was so good we thought that it was a recording! The best part of our party was at the very end. The band called all of our guests to the dance floor and got us surrounded by love. They were absolutely everything we could have ever dreamed!

WS was a pleasure to work with Keri Barrett The Bohlin Wedding – August 25, 2018 - Newport, RI

Their music made the wedding! I cannot thank you enough. WS was a pleasure to work with and my wedding would not have been the same without The Connection. Everyone kept asking me where I found them. The ceremony was perfect, the emceeing, the energy, everything!!

better than I ever imagined! Mrs. Denomme The Stevens Estate at Osgood Hill Wedding – August 11, 2018 - North Andover, MA

Katlin, thank you for an AWESOME night at my daughter’s wedding!  Your band made the wedding better than I ever imagined!  Wish we could do it again…I might have to become a wedding crasher!  I wanted to thank you and the rest of The Connection personally at the end of the night, but I was whisked away in the mass exodus, to catch the trolley!  You guys were stellar!

I would give them my first born child Landon LaPorte Newport Beach House Wedding – August 4, 2018 - Middletown, RI

We were so so so so pleased with The Connection at the wedding. Everything was perfect from their load in to load out. They were extremely talented, approachable, fun, and just great humans – and exceptional performers too. We would hire them again in a heart beat for any event. Tell them I would give them my first born child for another show! The comments from our guests were overwhelmingly positive. “Best wedding band I’ve ever seen”… on and on. And they let us sing Wagon Wheel which was just so much fun and a great memory.

Thanks a million!

Every single guest who spoke with us told us that The Connection was the best wedding band they have ever heard. Because of the band, people told us our wedding was the best they had ever attended and some even said it was the best party – “hands down” – they have ever been to. Everybody was on their feet the entire night because the music was THAT good. Thank you for giving us a dream event!

the band was the hit of the reception! Doug Diamond Boston Park Plaza Hotel Wedding – June 23, 2018 - Boston, MA

Katlin,

We just wanted to say thank you so much for such a fantastic band performance this past weekend.  It was such an incredible day for us and the band was the hit of the reception!  All our guests loved the band and couldn’t stop raving about how great they were.  Thank you so much for orchestrating everything and making the reception stress-free for us, it truly meant a lot.  It was so special for us to have Ed sing our first dance song – we appreciate all the extra time and effort that went into rehearsing for that special part of our night!

It was such a pleasure working with you.  If there is anything we can do regarding referrals, please let us know as we would be more than happy to provide a glowing review.  Thank you, again, for absolutely everything you did for us to make everything so memorable.

You are The BEST Tom Belhumeur Private Residence Wedding – June 16, 2018 - Swampscott, MA

I would recommend Wilson Stevens and the Connection to anybody. The Band was fantastic, everybody raved about them they had great energy and professional appearance. People would not get off the Dance Floor and they kept going full out. Great selection, played everything the people wanted. You are The BEST. 

It was a great experience. They say “THE BAND CAN MAKE OR BREAK A WEDDING’..well, these guys CRUSHED IT.

this band just rocked Barbara McCarthy Brandeis University Event – June 9, 2018 - Waltham, MA

Our event encompassed guests ranging in age from early 20s – through their 70s and the dance floor was full the entire night. The selection of music by The Connection was fun and most definitely spanned the decades. There were no breaks which was so awesome as sometimes that breaks the momentum of the evening – this band just rocked through the entire event. We loved how members of the band joined guests on the dance floor.  We have never received so many compliments about the music at this annual alumni event – many asking the name of the band. We will most definitely be booking The Connection in the future.

Your music was phenomenal Pearl Farquharson Gore Place Wedding – June 2, 2018 - Waltham, MA

I want to thank you so much for everything that you’ve done to make Sarah and Justin’s wedding a great success this past Saturday. Your music was phenomenal and it was an absolute pleasure to parter with such gifted professionals.

It is my hope to collaborate with The Connection in the future. Until then, I wish you the best in your endeavors.

10 out of 10 David Bick Willowdale Estate Wedding – June 1, 2018 - Topsfield, MA

10 out of 10. Kimberly and I thought the quality of the music was fantastic. 10 out of 10. We had many guests who mentioned to us that they loved the band. They certainly kept people dancing throughout the night. We would like to mention that the artist who sang our first dance song (which was learned specifically for our first dance), was excellent!

best party of our wildest dreams!! Kristen & Chris Izant Royal Sonesta Hotel Wedding – May 26, 2018 - Cambridge, MA

I hope you are having a great weekend. We just returned from our honeymoon, so please pardon the delay on this email – we are reaching out to offer a huge THANK YOU for throwing us the absolute best party of our wildest dreams!! We had an amazing time dancing and singing, and the band was beyond fantastic – people are still raving about The Connection and the professionalism of each band member several weeks later 😀 We so appreciate all of your efforts to ensure an over-the-top fun night that ran so smoothly. We only wish we could do it all over again!

exceeded our expectations John K Atsalis Atlantic Resort Newport Wedding – March 17, 2018 - Middletown, RI

The Connection was fantastic at our wedding. You all really connected with the crowd and exceeded our expectations (though we knew you were the best from the moment we heard you all at the WS showcase!). Our guests loved the performance and couldn’t say enough about how wonderful the band was. Beth danced the night away.

so sincere and kind Colleen and Colin Mooney Ocean Edge Resort Wedding – September 30, 2017 - Brewster, MA

The Connection is ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL !! The band members are so incredibly talented and I just LOVE how their personalities shine through in all their songs. They were so engaging and each song was better than the next. The dance floor was packed from the minute dinner was over until the end of the wedding. In fact some guests never sat down. 

We chose the Connection because of the various genres of music they played. We wanted music from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and top 40 but all in moderation. The Connection delivered just that and so much more. All age groups were on the dance floor all night having a blast. Not only would I highly recommend The Connection to future brides, but I’m sure all our guests have already spread the word, everyone loved them. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you to The Connection for making our wedding so special and one that our family and friends will remember for years to come. 

the performance of a lifetime Robert Mulroy The Crane Estate Wedding – September 22, 2017 - Ipswich, MA

The Connection put on the performance of a lifetime at our wedding! There was not a time after they went on that the dance floor was not full of people dancing. They had an amazing song selection and each player/singer was amazing. We loved this band and would pick them again in a heart beat.

Your band was awesome!!! Lynne Enos Four Seasons Hotel Wedding – September 16, 2017 - Boston, MA

It is always a treat to work with The Connection. Your band was awesome!!!

Hope we can work together again soon.

could not have been happier Tim Condron Hyannisport Club Event – July 29, 2017 - Hyannis Port, MA

Your band was amazing! You totally got the crowd. We could not have been happier. Lots of people from the club were asking how to get a hold of you. When Jodi recommended you first thing she said to me was “you will not be disappointed”. I emailed her yesterday and told her she was right.

Thanks so much!!!

I never left the dance floor! Molly Clark The Regatta Place Wedding – July 22, 2017 - Newport, RI

The Connection was AMAZING!! My guests and I never left the dance floor. They played a wonderful variety and sounded great!

 

What a night Kate Dawson Private Residence Wedding – July 8, 2017 - Norwich, VT

Hi Katlin,

Holy cow! What a night. Thanks to all of you for going above and beyond yesterday (and really for the last year of planning and prep!) The bride, groom and their families were so happy! We pulled it off 😀

Hope everyone got some rest last night – and looking forward to doing that again with everyone soon!

unique and special Beth Sackstein Royal Sonesta Hotel Wedding – June 3, 2017 - Cambridge, MA

Dear Katlin,

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!

great music Emma Shandra State Room Event – March 24, 2017 - Boston, MA

Thank you so much for the great music last night! The guests had a great time as always and are already looking forward to The Connection next year.

Thanks again!

They were FANTASTIC! Charles and Mary McGrail Hyatt Boston Harbor Wedding – December 31, 2016 - Boston, MA

We choose The Connection as the band to play at our daughter’s wedding. After attending many weddings at Boston venues over the years, we realize that the band you pick sets the tone of the wedding and we hoped we could find that special band. Well, I hope everyone who is thinking of picking a band will consider The Connection. They were FANTASTIC!! The evening was everything we had hoped for. Their music certainly set the tone and produced a dance floor of enthusiastic dancers. I loved every minute of it. A special shout out to the band’s attire. Guys you looked fantastic in the men’s suits and the two women surely dressed for NYE. Thank you for that! I only hope by this small snippet of information, you realize how special you made our family’s memories. To close please know my expectations were 100% filled. Thanks to all THE CONNECTION!

crowd surfing at a wedding Mr. & Mrs. Scribi , Lisa Blake Loon Mountain Resort Wedding – November 5, 2016 - Lincoln, NH

I just needed to reach out and say thank you again. Our wedding was the most amazing thing ever and you and your band helped make it that way. I didn’t think a dance floor could ever be that packed and even have someone crowd surfing at a wedding. The Connection is not only talented but classy. I hope you all had as much fun as we did!

Thank you again,
Mr. & Mrs. Scribi

….from The Mother of The Bride:

Thank you so much. This is a sampling of comments from our guests:

“By far the best wedding I have ever been to”, “where did you get that band”, “everyone danced all night, people were dancing before the wedding party even arrived”, “how did you find this band”, “can you believe the players came on the dance floor with their instruments”, “a bridesmaid actually body surfed”, “the band members where so friendly”, and “I hated it to see the music end!!”.
