We were supposed to have our wedding this past June, and Boston Premier was going to be the highlight of our evening. The pandemic forced us to cancel our plans. As you can imagine, it was devastating. What made matters worse was we couldn't reschedule our day because we were moving out of state a couple of weeks after the wedding. This review is to inform everyone how we were treated throughout this whole ordeal. Like many brides, at first, we were hopeful that the pandemic would pass and we would be able to celebrate our marriage as planned. We spoke with Ceasar many times between late February and early April. He always listened patiently and offered any advice he could to calm us down. At the end of every conversation, he would mention that he would work things out for us no matter which direction we were forced to move in. Sadly, in the end, we had no choice but to cancel our date because of all of the restrictions. Ceasar is an honorable businessman and kept his word. He returned our deposit in full even though we could not reschedule the group. Ladies, this is the type of company that you want to do business with. On stage, Boston premier is an incredible band that will make you dance the entire night. We witnessed this first hand at a friend's wedding. Off stage, I want you all to know there is an honorable man who places his client's needs over his own. I can only imagine how many weddings they lost this year due to the pandemic. Despite that, he treated us with compassion, and in the end, he kept his word. I cannot recommend this band enough. They are extraordinary!

Picking the right band for our reception was the most challenging decision of our wedding planning, and we couldn't have been more pleased with our decision. Boston Premier made our reception an absolute blast! They were so much fun, and they sounded incredible! I can't speak highly enough about the way they conducted themselves and performed at our reception. No one left the dance floor all night - not even for dessert! Ceasar was excellent to work with. He stayed in contact with us leading up to the big day and took a lot of care in making sure all of our details were organized and perfectly coordinated. If you're struggling to find the right band for your reception, Boston Premier was a huge part of making our day so special, and I would not hesitate to hire them again.

If you're in need of a truly outstanding band for your upcoming wedding, look no further. Boston Premier is, simply put, the absolute best. We hired their nine-piece band for our wedding in Newport, and it was one of the single best vendor decisions we made. My husband and I had to postpone our original wedding date due to Covid and were in a stressful position regarding vendor changes and shifts. Ceasar could not have made things easier for us. Kind and understanding from the start, he helped us every step of the way to ensure that our day was everything we wanted and more. He and the band members are true professionals who are not only incredibly talented, but understand how to read the room and keep the dance floor packed all night long. In addition, we had some special requests for songs (big band swing music no less), which they happily learned and played spectacularly. Their energy and performance set the tone for the whole evening and our guests had no shortage of compliments regarding how amazing they were. Thank you is not enough to express our appreciation for how special this band helped to make our day!

Ceasar and the rest of Boston Premier Band were a dream to work with. From the very beginning, with COVID being a huge concern and whether or not we could even have a dance floor, Ceasar was so kind and understanding and made us feel so comfortable and confident with booking them. He worked so well with the venue and the rest of the vendors. He went above and beyond by taking the time to learn a different version of our first dance song and made sure to schedule calls prior to the wedding day to assure execution was perfect - and it was! Boston Premier Band really brought the party to Block Island. They read the crowd perfectly and got everyone on the dance floor - even the people I didn't expect to see out there. I couldn't recommend Ceasar and Boston Premier Band enough. Thank you thank you thank you!!

Okay folks... Bernie and I are musicians. We booked our wedding venue, June 1, 2019, at The Wequassett Resort and Golf Club, Harwich, MA. and now we needed to find a "Live" band as a DJ would not suffice. I can not tell you the many there are to choose from and the many we interviewed. We narrowed it down to two bands. After having multiple conversations it became apparent to us that the band for us was the "Boston Premier Band." Our wedding day was better than imagined, thank you Wequassett!! Our reception??!!!! The best!! Why??!! Because our band, Boston Premiere Band was over the top! the best! Talk about pros!! These guys and gal are!! Thank you, Ceasar Cabral!! Your band delivered a reception that will be talked about for a long time. Yes, the venue was gorgeous and the food out of this world, but the band?!! The band was total entertainment! Prior to our wedding, Ceasar Cabral was extremely detailed in working with us to ensure very important moments were covered. From the grand entrance of the wedding party -the Bride and Groom to our exit song - he covered ALL the in-between things and worked closely with the Wequassett's Wedding planner, Megan S. days leading to our amazing wedding day. His tones of compassion over the phone won me. Yes he is a businessman, yet it was always a pleasure speaking with him, it was as if we were friends chatting. The Boston Premier Band was also within our budget. It was just an amazing "win-win" all the way around. We just received raw footage from our videographer, what stands out the most, aside from the amazing venue, is the fun we were all having. Boston Premier Band had us engaged the full 4 1/2 hours, except during the meal service and cake cutting!!

We made a great decision - Thank you Boston Premier Band!! You delivered excellent entertainment for our wedding. We will cherish what you gave us forever, LOL plus it's on video!! woot woot! If Bernie and I can give you more than a 5 Star rating you'd have it.

Where to even begin! We had Boston Premier play our big day and they crushed it. From start to finish the band was absolutely amazing and better than we could have ever imagined! When we got engaged one of the first things we knew we wanted for our wedding was a fun band that brings the energy and gets everyone dancing and having a great time. That’s exactly what we got! Our guests had such an amazing night, and we are still receiving compliments weeks after. Also, they learned a few songs for our special dances and played them excellently. Boston Premier is a sensational band and I will happily recommend them over and over again.

We couldn’t have asked for a better experience than the one we had with Ceasar and the Boston Premier Band. From the start, Ceasar was super easy to communicate with and very attentive to our requests for the wedding. The piano and vocals for the ceremony were beautiful and just as we imagined. For the reception, we had specific instructions for them regarding introducing the wedding party. They did exactly as we asked! The band kept the party going all night. They were very interactive and got everyone on the dance floor quickly. Everyone loved Boston Premier at our wedding! The night was perfect and we can’t thank them enough.

LADIES, HIRE BOSTON PREMIER FOR YOUR WEDDING!! We had heard them before at a friend’s wedding, so we hired them soon after we got engaged. Ceasar was such a pleasure to work with, and the band is A-MA-ZING! They worked out all of our requests the weeks leading up to the reception and our friends and family danced THE ENTIRE NIGHT. I mean, the dance floor was FILLED to capacity! My husband and I loved their style and energy the first time we heard them. They played all the types of music we wanted and nothing out of date. We also hired them for the ceremony and the cocktail hour. Everything was just perfect. Honestly, we couldn't have asked for a better band for our wedding. THEY WILL MAKE YOUR RECEPTION!!

Amy S.

Boston Premier performed at our May 2018 wedding and was FABULOUS! We knew we needed a band with high energy that would keep our guests dancing all night and they surpassed all expectations! Kelly and Doug killed it with their incredible voices. Ceasar was our primary contact. He took care of all of our requests and did everything we asked including setting us up a small sound system for the ceremony and playing our cocktail hour playlist. I didn't worry about a single thing! It was a fantastic time, and people came up to us all night long to rave about the band. I couldn't recommend Boston Premier more highly! They are totally worth the money and one of the most reasonably priced groups in Boston. BOOK THIS BAND!!!

Hailey B.

Our experience with the Boston Premier Band was awesome. Our guests did not stop dancing the entire night and let us know it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to! The band was simply INCREDIBLE and flawlessly performed many of the favorites we requested. Weeks later, our friends are STILL raving about how awesome the band was. Throughout the planning stages, Ceasar was extremely accommodating, well-organized, and attentive. Boston Premier was the highlight of our wedding! They have fabulous energy, and you can tell that they love what they do. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!!

Patrick O.

What a great band. When I booked them, I went on a recommendation and a few videos I saw. I’m glad I did. Caesar and the rest of the band are amazing musicians. They sounded amazing and the dance floor was full all night. They can play almost any song you want or know of. When we had our phone call meeting, Caesar was very honest about our first dance. They do a version but it is a little different then the track, being what it was we went with the track. But he gave us an option. The last song was a Van Morrison song, he has a unique voice, but they nailed it. The professionalism and good time that they provided for everyone was what made me and my wife happy we chose them.

Our experience with Boston Premier was outstanding! We were super picky about finding a great band. Once we watched a few of their live videos online, we knew they were it. The band members brought our reception to life, kept the dance floor packed and exceeded all our expectations! Caesar was great to work with leading up to our wedding and really put us at ease with how the event would flow. My wife and I were extremely happy with everything they did. If you chose them for your big day, you won't be disappointed! To all of the band members, we can't thank you enough for being so much fun and making our wedding so memorable!!

Allison M.

We have so many wonderful things to say about Boston Premier. They are very professional, and it was a pleasure working with them. Our family and friends loved the band, and so did we. They had everyone dancing for hours, and no one wanted them to stop playing at the end of the night. Kelly did a great job being the MC, and everything went off smoothly. Hands down, Boston Premier was the highlight of our night! They brought the exact type of energy to our wedding that we wanted. Thank you for making the trip down to New Haven and for playing your hearts out for our special day. We're grateful for all the effort and hard work you put into making our reception so wonderful. Absolutely the best!!

Brendan M.

We booked the Boston Premier Band for our April wedding (ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception), and they were outstanding. Our dance floor was overflowing the entire night. It was absolutely perfect and beyond our wildest dreams. Don't hesitate to book this band. You'll be so glad you did.

Mackenzie T.

Boston Premier was the best decision we ever made. They are so talented and so much fun! My husband and I saw them play at the 4th of July Ball and were immediately impressed by their sound, but especially with their energy on stage. It was essential for us to have the best dance party. Caesar and the rest of the band really helped in every way to make that happen. We hired their DJ to provide music for our ceremony. Their Jazz Trio played during our cocktail hour. For the reception, we chose the seven piece band. They did such an AMAZING job! Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night. We cannot thank this band enough for making our day so special!

Emily T.

All of the positive reviews are 100% TRUE. All I can say is "WOW", they were worth every penny! This incredible band is the complete package, and everyone that attended our reception simply loved them. I still hear compliments on how great they were. We first saw Boston Premier at a friend's wedding in Providence last June. Soon after we became engaged, they were one of the first vendors we secured. They had everyone on the dance floor the entire night, and that is precisely what we wanted. The band's primary contact is Ceasar. He was extremely detailed, prompt and a great person all around. We had the time of our lives because they are the best of the best!! To anyone looking to book a band for their reception, Boston Premier should be your first call. PS - Highly recommend you get the saxophonist in your band package.

Janelle R.

We booked the Boston Premier Band and they were better than we could have imagined. You can't go wrong booking this band for your reception! Every member of the group was extremely professional and seemed very excited to be playing our event. Ceasar, the band manager was an absolute delight to work with. We spoke at length prior to the wedding discussing the timeline, intros, music, etc. He covered it all. The introductions were very smooth and polished. Also, the band played all the songs we requested and even took the time to learn a few selections they did not know. One of my absolute must have requests was “Getting’ Jiggy With It,” which is an old song that my college friends still go crazy for. The band’s rendition was spot on and the dance floor exploded!!! It made our night! A month later, our guests are still raving about how wonderful Boston Premier was! Thank you, Guys & Gal for making our reception so incredible!!!

Rebecca S.

So much fun! I never imagined seeing as many people on the dance floor as I did at our wedding! The real reason we chose Boston Premier was for the sound and energy of the band and their ability to get people dancing. The floor was never empty, and they played everything we requested. Their DJ was also excellent and kept the party going strong during the band's break. This is an amazing group of talented musicians, and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a band!

Jessica M.

After seeing Boston Premier Band play at a friend's wedding, we were hooked and booked them for ours! We were worried it might be too similar, but David really worked with us to make sure that it was personalized just for us. He asked for a list of our favorite songs, the band learned some that were special to us, and they even schemed with my husband to help him pull of a surprise father-daughter dance that was absolute perfection. Thanks so much for being a part of our day! :)
