What our customers are saying
we can't imagine having anyone else! Noa & Dylan Hattem Gedney Farm Wedding -October 10, 2020 - New Marlborough, MA
Hi Katlin and Tim,
Dylan and I just returned from our honeymoon and want to let you know how fabulous the Jen Hoyt Group was at our wedding last weekend. They were absolutely perfect – from the songs they played, to the energy they brought the entire night. We truly couldn’t have asked for a better group.
As you know, pivoting from a 200+ person event to a small 25 person wedding was a big change for us. We are so thrilled with how the band worked out, and we can’t imagine having anyone else!
Especially in these difficult and uncertain times, it was SO fun to just dance and sing  with our closest family. It meant more than you can imagine. Everyone had fun and everyone was raving about the music. Please pass this note along to Jen and the whole group so they know how much they meant to us!
absolutely wonderful Rachel Lapal Crane Estate Wedding - September 27, 2020 - Ipswich, MA

The entire Wilson Stevens Productions staff was a pleasure to work with as we had to rearrange our wedding plans due to COVID. Everyone was supportive, collaborative, and understanding as we had to make changes and we felt fully supported throughout the entire experience. Because of COVID, we did not meet (or hear live) the Jen Hoyt Group until our wedding day, and we were overjoyed with how wonderful they were and how amazing they sounded. Jen was kind enough to introduce herself immediately and kept us updated throughout the wedding. She was absolutely wonderful and our guests, both in person and online, raved about her and the band.

We look forward to having you back next year! Haylie Matta Manchester Country Club - February 9, 2018 - Manchester, NH
