Lindsey and Matt's Revue

First I need to say, Boston Premier Band is an ABSOLUTE MUST for your wedding!! If you have the opportunity do NOT hesitate to book them! This review is long overdue, and I apologize to all of the talented members of this incredible band. I never write reviews and I was nervous I wouldn’t be able to accurately convey how amazing this band is and how grateful we are for them! Here is our story... Our wedding was June 2021. Covid was running rampant and we were worried about vendors and Covid and the big day 😅. Planning a wedding is extremely overwhelming, there’s so many moving parts and vendors to choose from and to be honest I’m really bad at making decisions. My husband and I knew from the start we wanted a band. I expected deciding on a band was going to be one of the most difficult decisions we would have to make. We went through a few bands thinking eh they’re okay. When we listened to the Boston Premier band demo we instantly loved them! After Ceasar’s quick response we were excited (and nervous) to meet with him via zoom. We were worried that they wouldn’t be available and wanted to make sure they wanted to be a part of our day. Meeting via zoom with Caesar was one of the best experiences of planning the wedding. They were available! And we absolutely loved Ceasar’s energy and felt like we all had the same vision for our special day. One thing kept creeping up on me: due to Covid, we hadn’t seen them perform live. 😬 It made me nervous. So many months pass and you have a constant wonder how the wedding day is going to play out. Every time I contacted Ceasar he was available! He responded promptly every single time and was able to answer any questions and help us with the planning process. We went through the set list and told him what songs we like and didn’t like. We even asked if they knew any Sam Cooke, he said they didn’t but they could try to learn it. On our wedding day, it was a beautiful surprise when they broke out the exact song we requested. Not only did they learn a new song for us, they passed the mic to my husband at our wedding to rap to DMX (bringing him and all his college buddies back in time) and included me (sorry friends for my awful voice! I tried!) to sing any Whitney, Madonna, 3 non blondes etc song that I love to belt out! They even recorded hours of video from our reception and sent it to us! This band is absolutely incredible in every sense of the word. I kick myself for being worried I hadn’t heard them. The energy this band brings is like no other. Boston Premier made our wedding day a HUGE hit! Even my great aunt said “Lyndsey I haven’t danced in 20 years, and I couldn’t drag myself OFF the dance floor!” People still mention how awesome you all were. Boston Premier we love you!!!
