What our customers are saying
beyond an A plus! Olivia S. Wellesley Country Club Wedding - June 8, 2024 - Wellesley, MA

Hi Emily,

The Standard was absolutely awesome! We were so, so happy with our wedding night and the band was such a huge part of it. Thank you for everything!

even better than we hoped Tony H. Boston Harbor Hotel Wedding - June 1, 2024 - Boston, MA

The Standard is fantastic! They performed at our reception and cocktail hour and were even better than we hoped. It felt like an all-star team of performers: talented, energetic, and engaging. They were able to get all of our guests dancing! Our friends and family are still talking about how much fun they had. They made the night! The whole operation is so professional, and working with Wilson Stevens staff was so easy. Thank you Wilson Stevens and the Standard!

I will forever be grateful Martha S. Woodland Golf Club Wedding - May 18, 2024 - Auburndale, MA

Hi Emily,

HUGE HEARTFELT THANKYOU’S TO WILSON STEVENS & THE STANDARD!! We just celebrated my daughter’s wedding and people are still RAVING about the band, and I am still singing some of our favorite song choices that The Standard played for us. I will forever be grateful and impressed by the team at Wilson Stevens and their talented band, The Standard. From the singers to the musicians to the saxophonist who came out on the floor and played for the bride spontaneously, to the flair and style and sound and uber talent, everyone was THE BEST! We had every confidence in Wilson Stevens from our first meeting to the final meeting and then to the celebration itself. As soon as the band played, everyone jumped onto the dance floor and never left. The songs, the upbeat energy, the flair, the style, the hospitality to keep us on our schedule without us even being aware of it all – were all perfect. I wish I could rate you 10+++ — it was a fabulous experience. I hope we can be dancing with you all again soon! THANK YOU!!

absolutely delighted Shannon S. Castle Hill Inn & Resort Wedding - October 14, 2023 - Newport, RI

Hello Emily!

What a beautiful celebration for Sally & Cole on Saturday, despite the uncooperative weather!! Their wedding was incredible, and I know they were absolutely delighted with how the day went.

A huge thank you to you and The Standard for making it everything they hoped for – I look forward to working with you again soon!

nothing short of amazing Kelsey M. Pittsfield Country Club Wedding - October 7, 2023 - Pittsfield, MA

Hi Emily,

Alex and I want to thank you for coordinating The Standard for our wedding day this past Saturday. They were nothing short of amazing. We received endless comments about how amazing The Standard were. They set the tone for the night and kept the energy high. 

Thank you!!

Definitely the highlight of our wedding Christine C. Cape Club of Sharon Wedding - September 2, 2023 - Sharon, MA

Best decision we made was booking with Wilson Stevens! Definitely the highlight of our wedding, and all the guests still talk about how amazing the band was! They kept the dance floor full and did a great job at reading the crowd on what music to play. I would definitely work with Wilson Stevens again and again! Thank you to you and The Standard for making our wedding so memorable!

I honestly had to pinch myself Harriet M. Private Residence Wedding - August 12, 2023 - Newport, RI

Don’t think twice. Book them immediately. I don’t say this lightly. I am terrible at decision making. I will research for weeks, sometimes months, and then get overwhelmed by all the choices. When I spoke to Wilson Stevens, I thought they were too good to be true. They were professional, talented, and kind. I listened to dozens of bands, in person and online, but something drew me toward Wilson Stevens. I am also a singer, so I felt a huge pressure choosing a band. I cannot tell you how happy I am that we went with our gut and hired Wilson Stevens. They were with us every step of the way. and on the big day, they were so flexible when we ran behind schedule. And OH MY GOSH. The talent. The energy. The Standard was the best wedding band I’ve ever heard, and I’ve been to 85 weddings. I’m not exaggerating! I honestly had to pinch myself. Almost all the guests came up to us at the end to ask us the name. Thank you, THANK YOU. We are truly forever grateful.

flawless execution of every detail James and Jacqueline M. Wequassett Resort and Golf Club Wedding - July 8, 2023 - Harwich, MA

We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude for your incredible performance on our wedding day, Saturday, July 8, 2023. Thanks to you and the band, our wedding was an absolute success, and we couldn’t have asked for a more stellar event. 

From the moment we began planning our Cape Cod wedding from San Francisco, we were impressed by your professionalism and expertise. The months of research, vendor interviews, and backchanneling through wedding industry contacts led us to you, and we were absolutely thrilled when we secured your services. Throughout the planning process, Tim, Cheryl, and Emily’s guidance put us at ease, and we could fully enjoy our entire wedding week, which was an invaluable gift.

The highlight of our wedding reception at the Wequasset Resort and Golf Club was undoubtedly the nine-piece band and sound engineer from The Standard. They brought an unmatched energy level to the event, and the sound quality was nothing short of perfection. The music was pure gold and a joy to listen to, and the talent and synchronicity of the band members were evident in every note they played. Their interaction with the audience was engaging, and they flawlessly timed the intros and the evening’s events. They were not only exceptionally talented but also professional and well-dressed for the formal occasion, and their passion for performing was evident to all. We received numerous compliments from our guests, all raving about the spectacular performance by The Standard. 

The flawless execution of every detail on our wedding day was a testament to your team’s dedication and expertise. Your skillful approach to bringing our vision to life made the entire event an elevated and upscale experience for us and our guests. Your constant updates and accommodating responses to our requests were greatly appreciated and contributed to the seamless flow of the day.

Once again, thank you for being a trustworthy and outstanding wedding vendor. We wholeheartedly recommend Wilson Stevens’ The Standard to anyone seeking an unforgettable and captivating musical experience for their special day.

electric! Samantha N. New Seabury Country Club Wedding - May 28, 2023 - New Seabury, MA

The entire process was very easy and the team at Wilson Stevens was always responsive when any questions throughout wedding planning. The guests at our wedding are still talking about how amazing the band was. The Standard really made the night electric! Everyone was on the dance floor for the entire wedding which was exactly what we wanted.

We can’t thank you all enough Sam Gervais Museum of Science Event - December 10, 2022 - Boston, MA

Tim, Justin, Cheryl, Katlin, and The Standard, 

 THANK YOU!! The band absolutely crushed it! Our staff had the best night dancing and singing along with The Standard. They were interactive and engaging and played a perfect mix of songs throughout the evening – we even appreciate them singing our requested Mariah Carey song 😊

We have received emails and endless comments on how much everyone loved them. We can’t thank you all enough for your efforts and look forward to working with you all again soon.  

Thank you and wishing you all a wonderful holiday season!

an unforgettable evening Emily Winston  Brandegee Estate Wedding - October 1, 2022 - Brookline, MA

Hello Jessica,

I hope all is well with you. Our sincerest thanks to you and the band for an unforgettable evening. As soon as they started playing, guests were coming up to us saying how great they were! We have passed along the recommendation to many since then and I hope it results in lots more bookings for you all 🙂

Absolutely crushed it! Stay well!

absolutely amazing Frances and Chuck White Eustise Estate Wedding - August 13, 2022 - Milton, MA

Justin,

Oh my goodness!! The Standard was absolutely amazing last night at our daughter’s wedding reception! The dancing started at 8:00 and NOBODY left the dance floor until the bitter end. When the band finished their last song and said goodnight, the whole dance floor started chanting “one more song”- the band kindly obliged and gave us one more. They were incredible and they made the evening a huge success.

Thank you to your company for everything!

a HUGE hit Elyse and Adam Tourgee Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art Wedding - August 6, 2022 - North Adams, MA

Hi Skyla, 

We wanted to send a note to thank you for everything…we appreciate all you did and are so grateful you were a part of our special day. The band was a HUGE hit — we danced the night away and all of our guests are still raving about how good they were… and how much fun they had with The Standard. We also wanted to thank you for playing during the first 30 minutes of dinner… the guitarist had an AMAZING voice and it made the dinner so special.
