A really good party flies by in a flash and that is our experience at most of the weddings we play. It’s over before we know it. At most weddings with a band, it works out to be about 60 songs over the course of the reception. If there are more toasts and formalities, you get fewer songs and it…Read More

Recent Rave Reviews!
Our DJ Scott was amazing throughout the entire process. He was so friendly, professional and quick to answer emails. Our dance floor was full the entire night. We have received so many compliments on our music. Thank you Scott for the most memorable night!
Closing Time Boston through Murray Hill Talent was our band and MC service for our August 2023 wedding. They are PHENOMENAL. Truly cannot describe how incredibly talented this band is. We have received so many compliments about how great of a band they were and how fun they made our reception. Ryan, the band leader, is amazing and so easy to work with. We had a call with him about two weeks before our wedding and reviewed overall what our likes and dislikes were for our setlist direction and I was amazed at how well they crafted it to meet what we wanted while still delivering happy surprises along the way. My parents 35th anniversary is this year, so they even learned my parents wedding song to surprise them half way through their first set at the reception. 10/10 recommend them – they will plan your entire ceremony, cocktail hour and entrances to a T, leaving you will full confidence, no stress, just enjoying your day. Thank you closing time for being such a special and memorable part of our wedding day!
Murray Hill did a great job with our wedding. They were very responsive and professional, and worked with a few specific requests / events that I wanted to incorporate into the party. Honestly I don’t remember too much of the day of except that everyone had a good time and they accommodated my requests for some more bachata every so often. Over all I would recommend Murray Hill again.
We had the pleasure of working with Brendan Howard from Murray Hill Talent. We met with him about a month out from the wedding and instantly got good vibes from him. He made sure that we were tracking the right version of a certain song for my ceremony which made me feel so good because it was really important to me that it was the right version. We made the decision the day of the wedding to have the ceremony outside and he was flexible and ready! When it came time to dance, I don’t think we left the dance floor all night. It was just great song after great song and the guests loved it. Thanks Brendan, you were fantastic!
Flipside playing at our wedding and they were PHENOMENAL! we received so many compliments from guests about how good they were. They got the crowd into it by bringing the saxophone, trumpet onto the dance floor which was so fun. I worked with Corin Ashley as the point person and every time we emailed or spoke on the phone, he was personable, open to my ideas, and provided great ideas of his own. Corin and the entire band clearly know what they are doing- they know how to get the guests on the dancefloor and how to make a bride feel special and heard. I would absolutely recommend Flipside for your wedding!
Thank you Murray Hill Talent for the DJ and Photo booth services at our wedding last Sept. 2023. Call out to Cory Harding who DJ’d for us. We had a great party! Everyone had a good time dancing..from the 5 yo to the 92 yo! His music selection set the tone of the reception and engaged everyone to dance and celebrate with us.
