Let the reviews begin...
Hands down the best wedding band out there. Very easy to work with through the whole process and even worked with our Maid of Honor to perform a surprise song for us. They had the dance floor packed from beginning to end, only taking one break as the crowd was loving the song selections. Every guest has raved about them and said they have never been to such a fun wedding. They really made our wedding day one to remember and I can't thank them enough for that. I would recommend them to everyone

If you're still searching for a wedding band and these guys are available, book them now! They will not disappoint! We could not be any happier with our choice. The entire crowd loved every minute of every song they played - we had people coming up to us after just two songs asking us where we found MIB because they were one of the best bands they had ever heard! They can cover a wide genre and really play to the crowd. They do a phenomenal job reading the atmosphere and adjust their set list to how the party is going, and once you're on the dance floor it'll be really tough to leave as they transition from song to song seamlessly. Asides from a break during dinner, they only took one other break the whole night which seemed to only be about 5 minutes long. Tack on Jeff's masterful job at being MC as well as the keyboardist and guitarist who we had play our ceremony and cocktail hour and you have yourself the full package. They're the ideal wedding band and are worth every penny. Cannot thank them enough for making the night such a fun and memorable experience! –Brendan and Caroline

Men in Black was absolutely fantastic! It has now been three months since our wedding, and we are still receiving rave reviews about the band. Jeff and the Hank Agency were easy to work with, and were very willing to help accommodate us. They are incredibly professional, and have a great variety of music in their set list. Men in Black should be on the top of your list for a wedding band!

Men in black was the highlight of our reception! The band was so interactive with our guests and had EVERYONE up on the dance floor! Our guests were so impressed and said that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. I also want to say that Pam at hank agency was awesome to work with and made the booking process a breeze. I really can't say enough good things about this band! They were absolutely amazing.

August 13, 2016 wedding at the Haley Mansion, in Mystic, CT
After sampling the impressive collection of video and mp3 previews, I knew Men In Black would be the best band for our wedding. That being said, I totally underestimated how much they would truly enhance the experience. Piano for the ceremony and acoustic guitar during the cocktail hour were the perfect accompaniment and the music just got better from there. The energy was incredible from the opening set to the last dance and encore. No song was out of place and the range was spectacular. No need for must play/do not play lists, they know how to pack a dance floor and keep everybody moving. They are all exceptional performers and the crowd interaction was especially fun. It was great to see multiple lead singers that could cover so many styles and decades with fantastic quality. They even learned a new song upon request for the father/daughter dance and performed it beautifully. Jeff was highly professional and we trusted him completely to provide memorable entertainment for our kick ass wedding.
If you're considering options, adjust your budget, change your date, and book Men In Black!

August 6, 2016 wedding at the Estate at Moraine Farm, in Beverly, MA
Men In Black are incredible! We had them as our wedding band on 7/30/16 and they absolutely MADE our reception the amazing time that it was. They played all night to a packed dance floor while anticipating exactly what the crowd wanted to hear and how to keep people having a good time dancing all night long. What is unique about Men In Black is that they have the ability to engage the crowd in an incredibly fun and playful way whether it's coming out on the dance floor to sing or enlisting the musical talents of the bride, groom, and bridal party. Our guests kept coming up to us that night and writing to us the following week about how incredible Men In Black were. My cousin is getting married next year and now she wants a band for her wedding after seeing how professional, skillful, and fun Men In Black were! Also, the band learned a difficult song as our first dance song and it was very clear that they practiced the song until they mastered it. Their attention to detail in learning this song truly added to how special our day was and is a testament to how professional they are to put in such an effort. I would recommend them without a doubt to anyone looking for a band for an event. Jeff Fraser and the band really know what they're doing and how to both MC and entertain a crowd.

These guys put on an incredible performance! We knew from the very start we had nothing to worry about. They are truly the best band out there perfect for a wedding when you have crowds of young and old. Everybody LOVED them! Weeks later the guests still are raving on about how awesome these guys were. What a show they put on. We loved working with them and would hire them again in a heartbeat no questions asked. Made out special night Fantastic and we cant thank them enough.

July 24, 2016 wedding at the Tewksbury Country Club, in Tewksbury, MA
Hiring Men In Black was definitely the best decision we made when planning our wedding! The dance floor was packed all night and our guests are still talking about how awesome the band was (they all left sweaty from dancing and with sore feet!) The band brought the bridal party on stage to dance, Jeff sang out in the crowd, and they even got my 88 year old grandmother dancing and singing!! Pam from Hank Agency was so helpful through the entire process. Jeff is professional, easy to work with, and insanely talented. The band gave us the party atmosphere that you just can NOT get with a DJ, and our friends are looking for an excuse to throw a party so we can hire them again!

July 23, 2016 wedding at the Old Sturbridge Village, in Sturbridge, MA
I could not have imagined a better wedding band than Men in Black. They played our wedding in NH last month. I don't even know where to begin when it comes to complimenting them. They were incredibly easy and helpful to work with. Their song list was extensive, and full of music from each decade. The band really knew how to feel out the crowd and play music to keep people dancing the whole night. Jeff and the band interact with the crowd in a way that makes it very fun and added something special to our wedding. We had many people telling us thanks to the fun and excellent music the band played it was the best wedding they have ever been to. I could not be happier with my experience with them, and I will be making sure my friends have them at their weddings so I can experience it again!

Jeff is a pro!! Having a great band at my wedding was a top priority and I knew I wouldn't get a second chance to make the right choice. You can not go wrong with Men in Black - they are fantastic!. They exceed our expectations on every level. The music was fantastic and tailored to the crowd. They learned a song for us that was executed to perfection. They worked tirelessly to keep the audience engaged, entertained and dancing! All night our guests were saying - "where did you find such an awesome band - they are amazing!!". The music through dinner was perfect and as the evening progressed the music progressed with favourites for everyone and every age group - we loved it! Great job you guys - thanks for making our evening extra special. I would not hesitate to recommend this band to anyone who is committed to great music and entertainment at their wedding.

June 11, 2016 wedding at the Rosecliff, in Newport, RI
Men In Black is the best! Not only are they insanely talented, but they are truly amazing at what they do! Jeff worked all night to get the entire wedding party involved and keep them dancing. They were flexible, rolled with any of our last minute changes and did it all with a smile on their faces! They learned our first dance song and pulled it off beautifully. We couldn't have been happier with them for our wedding!

If you are looking for great entertainment for your wedding, then you have found it with Men in Black. This band is AWESOME- they made our wedding a night we will never forget.
Pam, the manager, was so helpful from day 1. She addressed all of our questions in a courteous and professional manner, and was always available via phone and email. She put us in touch with Jeff, the band leader, a couple weeks before the wedding. Jeff was so nice and professional, and the day of the wedding, he really knew how to get people up on the dance floor! He started serenading some of the guests as they were sitting down, and even had the bridal party up on stage to sing along and play percussion for a few songs!
I cannot say enough good things about this band- if you want your wedding night to rock, be sure to book Men in Black!!!

May 21, 2016 wedding at the Atkinson Country Club, in Atkinson, NH
We are so obsessed with Men in Black!! They are amazingly talented and kept the whole crowd (young AND old) dancing the entire night. Jeff put together a play list based upon our conversations of what we liked/didn't like and even learned the song my husband danced with his mother to. I requested Turn Down for What (yes the one you're thinking) and Jeff added it to one of the cd's during the bands break which was so fun. He was ultra-responsive in the months leading up to our day and the week before we had a call and walked through the entire night. I knew they would kill it but we were blown away. Beyond thrilled with our decision to book them!! Big thanks to Jeff and Pam!!

Amazing experience and the best decision we made in our wedding planning process! Men in Black made our wedding unforgettable and did a great job personalizing everything to meet our needs. Our friends and family partied all night long and couldn't stop raving about Jeff and the rest of the band!

April 9, 2016 wedding at the Westin Copley, in Boston, MA
Booking Men in Black for my wedding entertainment was one of the best decisions I could have made! They played at my New Year's Eve 2015 wedding and they were absolutely spectacular! They kept the dance floor alive the entire night and played a wide range of music so there was a little something for everyone! Guests young and old were on the dance floor till the very last song. We received soo many compliments on the band and were told time and time again how much fun our guests had at our wedding. One of the band's agents, Tania, was in touch with me leading up to wedding day. She was super professional and easy to work with, even though I was planning my wedding from 400+ miles away. Jeff was also a pleasure to work with. We connected a few days before the wedding to go over final details then he contacted my wedding coordinator to make sure everything went off without a hitch! Men in Black was absolutely amazing! They are a wedding MUST!

December 31, 2015 wedding at the Black Rock Country Club, in Hingham, MA
Men in black played my wedding on Dec 5th, and it was amazing. The band had people up and dancing before dinner and throughout the night. They have a great ability to read the crowd and play something that will get everyone dancing. The dance floor was packed the WHOLE night! I am so happy I choose men in black. I have been to so many weddings I have seen bands, DJ'S... everything, people said they had so much fun at mine. You are able to see them play events before booking the which helped immensely. You're going to have the best time at your weddinghaving MIB

December 5, 2015 wedding at the Bedford Village Inn, in Bedford, NH
If you want to have a blast at your wedding, look no further. Seriously, the best ever! We had seen MIB play a bunch of times before, and they were the first call we made when we started planning. We knew we had to have them. Jeff is super professional and accommodating to special requests, and each of the band members are so talented. Like all the other reviewers, Men in Black made our wedding. All of our guests are still raving about them, the dance floor was packed all night, and all we've heard is how much fun people had. Book MIB for your wedding, you will not be disappointed!

November 21, 2015 wedding at the Ben Franklin Institute, in Boston, MA
Nobody left the dancefloor! We got married on November 14th, and people STILL keep telling my about how amazing our band was. They were amazing. Book them early, and then there is no stress. They focus on you and only you the week leading up to your wedding and they honestly make it PERFECT. For our first dance, they slowed down "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and it was the most beautiful 3 minutes of my life- aside from vows of course! They even set up an unexpected exit tunnel with all of our guests... and based on the pictures, almost EVERY GUEST was still there until the very end! AMAZING.

November 14, 2015 wedding at the State Room, in Boston, MA
We recently had Men in Black at our daughter's wedding at Harrington Farm in Princeton Mass. Men in Black MADE the reception. We were concerned as we had a mixed crowd but they had people on the dance floor all night long. Let them do what they want as they know how to read the crowd. Jeff engages the guests and we especially loved how he had the women and men from the wedding party take part in playing with the band. SO MUCH FUN. The first question people ask you after a wedding is "Did you have a good time?" With Men in Black you are GUARANTEED a good time. Everyone commented how fantastic they were. The best advice I can give you is if you want to put extra money towards something hire MEN IN BLACK. You won't regret it. They will make your wedding a night to remember for sure. Thanks Again. The Kennedys

November 8, 2015 wedding at Harrington Farm, in Princeton, MA
There are not enough positive words to describe our experience with Men in Black. To begin, they are FUN!! They play songs the crowd loves: just know, they have no set playlist, they feel out the crowd - and from the handful of times I've seen them play (at one wedding besides ours and a couple of other venues in Boston) - they nail it every time. They also get everyone involved and out on the dance floor. I can't even tell you how many comments we got from guests who said they've never seen a band like MIB before and that the band made the reception. They are also very professional - we primarily interacted with Pam (who is super nice) while booking and in the weeks leading up to the wedding, as well as Jeff, the bandleader (who is really enthusiastic and clearly invested in making sure your reception is exactly what you want it to be). Also, they have a ton of talent...each band member was featured at one point during the reception and they all knocked it out of the park. The female lead vocalist was especially on point! I would absolutely recommend MIB to any bride or groom out there looking for the BEST wedding band!

November 7, 2015 wedding at the Taj, in Boston, MA
Men In Black is the real deal! We had the pleasure of seeing them perform at a friends wedding before our own, so we knew we were getting the best! Jeff is awesome to work with, and the entire band was completely professional and spot on with every song. There wasn't one down moment all night and they kept the dance floor packed the entire time! We HIGHLY recommend hiring Men In Black for your wedding. Not only are you supporting local musicians, but you'll be getting the BEST band out there that all of your attendants will be raving about!

I can't even begin to describe how amazing and how much fun MIB was at our wedding!! Right from the time everyone was introduced up until the last song (5 hours later) they were so upbeat and entertaining. Everyone from the wedding is still talking about how awesome they were. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this band to anyone because they play such a variety of music, that they'll be sure to play what you like

I cannot even express how amazing this band is! Jeff is incredible, and really knows how to read a crowd and entertain. My guests danced the entire night, and everyone raved about how great they were. Everything flowed so smoothly with them, and they did everything they could to make the night perfect - even a song request from my little cousin so she could show off a dance routine. I would hire them over and over again. If you are lucky enough to have this band available for your wedding day, book them immediately!

If you are looking for a wedding band that'll keep your guests on the dance floor ALL night then this it ! I first saw Men In Black perform at my sister's wedding and knew I would some day want them for mine. Seven years later that wish finally came true ! I knew I would do anything to have them perform at my wedding. Everyone from Pam at the office to the lead singer Jeff made it possible. They also played music for my ceremony and cocktail hour. When rain started pouring down at the start of the reception Jeff took charge and made sure everything flowed and stayed on time. Everyone from the flower girls to my 80 year old aunt were on the dance floor the entire night which was my #1 goal for my wedding. Jeff and the band kept the party going all night and were totally able to read the crowd and know what song to play next. They even learned the song for my first dance ! All night people kept coming up to me raving about the band and still a month later people keep talking about MIB. Even my cousin's finance who was set on having a DJ for their wedding now wants Men in Black !!! Thank you so much to Jeff and the band for making my wedding night one I will never forget !!

August 15, 2015 wedding at the Margate Resort, in Laconia, NH
Amazing! The band did an unbelievable job keeping everyone on the dance floor with great music all night. Jeff was terrific to work with and so was David from their agency. We saw the band play several times in Boston and Somerville and were really excited for them to play at our wedding. For the ceremony Jeff set up a microphone and speaker that worked flawlessly and then for cocktail hour, the guests loved hearing the acoustic guitar the entire time. The band played an incredible mix of genres throughout the night to make sure that everyone stayed on their feet. While planning for the night with Jeff before the wedding he took the requests I had and put together an absolutely amazing set list. He made it an incredibly special night by playing the few songs that we requested and filling in the rest with awesome music. Even the 8-10 minute break that the band took was planned out perfectly so we never missed a beat. Can't wait to see them again!

Men in Black MADE our wedding. We had the best wedding night ever because of their creativity, high energy, and commitment to making the wedding rock ALL NIGHT! I truly cannot recommend them highly enough. There are no words to describe how well they took our requests to heart but totally read the energy of the crowd and kept the dance floor packed for hours. If you are even considering a band, there is no one to go with but Men In Black. I would do my wedding a million times over and pick them every single time!!

Men In Black crushed it at our wedding!! ALL of our guests were dancing all night long. Jeff and the rest of the band got the crowd involved and made sure everyone had an amazing time. The music selection was phenomenal- our guests loved every minute of it!

I can't even begin to explain how AMAZING Jeff and his band were! They had all of our guests dancing throughout the night, and rocked the house the whole time! Not only were they professional, and so easy to work with, but they honestly made my wedding the perfect night! I 100% recommend Men In Black to anyone who wants to have the BEST band at their wedding, because they definitely are!

July 12, 2015 wedding at the Sebasco Harbor Resort, in Phippsburg, ME
Men in Black played at our wedding in June and they were excellent! The night was rigorously planned out ahead of time and MIB did a great job of keeping things moving and flowing according to schedule. In addition to playing during the entire reception, they also handled the introductions, and instructed the guests where to go, and when (for dinner, speeches, first dance, cake-cutting, etc). Everything was done in an extremely professional and impressive manner. After the parent dances, the band went right into the 'wedding classics' and got everyone out onto the dance floor. Guests young and old spent the entire night dancing, a testament to the band's song choices. Several months beforehand, we were given the band's catalog of songs and we couldn't believe how broad the list was. We asked them to play a couple of our favorites, but left the rest of the decisions up to them (a decision we were thrilled with). The music was incredible and the song choices were perfect. In the weeks since our wedding, we've had dozens of guests ask us for the band's contact information. Some of our friends are actually planning on having MIB play at their wedding, so we can't wait to see them again. They were absolutely hands-down the best wedding band we've seen. We couldn't have been happier with our decision to have MIB play at our wedding.

June 27, 2015 wedding at the Providence Public Library, in Providence, RI
Men in Black were fabulous. They played a great variety of music and kept everyone dancing all night long. They even had a surprise for the Bride and Groom in the 3rd set. We heard about them from a co-worker who recommend we hire them for our wedding without even seeing them. We did see them perform in Somerville, and hired them right away. They made our wedding and awesome party! Jeff the band leader was very relaxed and easy to work with.

During the time when my now wife and I were searching for bands we came across “Men in Black”. Not knowing anything about them, I asked a friend who had hired them for their wedding. Her response “they get the party started, and keep it going.”
That comment couldn’t have been more accurate. This band is AWESOME and kept the party going until the last song. Miraculously they were available for our wedding night and they were the highlight of the entire wedding. The next day everyone was talking about them and how good they were and this included the manager of the yacht club where we had the wedding who had literally seen hundreds of weddings. He said he they were one of the best they’ve seen.
We considered many of the higher priced bands, many of which were already booked. We were still considering other bands until we saw “Men in Black” play at a local bar. We were sold immediately and hired them. I think one of the things that set them apart is that they play at bars and restaurants while other wedding bands solely play at weddings. I think this is a very important difference for this band. We recently saw one of these higher rated (more expensive) bands that we had considered at a friend’s wedding. They couldn’t play our wedding because they were booked. While the band was talented, they could not keep people on the dance floor and were not playing songs that guests wanted to hear. The songs that guests want to hear I dub “sing-a-long classics”. Jeff and the rest of “Men in Black” played these classics all night long.
Jeff (lead singer/guitarist) took the time to meet with us before the wedding and this was extremely important. He was so cool and listened to what we wanted and made some awesome suggestions. He was also totally cool when our wedding planner couldn’t accommodate some of the things he wanted to do. Jeff completely just wanted us to have a good night and his suggestions were just that…suggestions. He didn’t force anything.

LOOK NO FURTHER! If you are looking for a band with talent that will have all your guests dancing, then look no further! I was so nervous about selecting the right band, as good music is essential for a good, fun wedding. However, now looking back, selecting Men in Black for my wedding was the best decision I made! Men in Black performed at my wedding at the Barn at Gibbet Hill. My hope was to have a fun wedding where everyone was dancing, well, they had the dance floor packed before dinner was even served!! After dinner, everyone was back on the dance floor and did not leave until the end of the night. They played two encore songs which had all the guests dancing! Their energy is contagious, their stage presence is incredible, and their talent is out of this world! My guests are STILL talking about how amazing the band was! I know I will be seeing Men in Black again soon as many guests are hoping to have them perform at their family members weddings! Thank you Men In Black for rocking the house and helping us have the wedding of our dreams!!!

June 5, 2015 wedding at the Barn at Gibbet Hill, in Groton, MA
Men in Black played at our daughter's wedding. They made the event!!!!! People continue to talk about how wonderful the band was. In fact, one guest whose daughter is getting married in the spring and wanting a dj texted her to say reconsider, get a band, look into Men in Black. Guests (of all ages) were on the dance floor the entire night. Jeff Fraser recommended a timeline for the night which worked perfectly. He was prepared from having spoken with the bride and groom and from a worksheet he asked them to complete, and then was totally responsive to the crowd. Jeff was masterful at keeping the party lively. He and Pamela got back to us quickly to address our questions and concerns about the set up at the venue. They were accessible, professional, and knowledgeable. The band consists of incredibly talented musicians who can play a wide variety of music. Members of the band played at the ceremony and during the cocktail hour. They learned a song for the bride and groom's first dance and sounded like the original artists. It was amazing! We were sorry to see the night end.

We had Men In Black play at our wedding this weekend at Tower Hill Botanic Garden. They were incredible! They kept everyone on the dance floor all night, and were really the reason everyone had the best time at our wedding. Jeff really listened to what we wanted and delivered. Our guests can't stop talking about our amazing wedding band! Can't recommend them enough!

May 30, 2015 wedding at the Tower Hill Botanic Garden, in Boylston, MA
Men in Black absolutely rocked our wedding!! My husband is a musician and was very discerning while choosing music for our wedding. After a ton of research, he landed on Men in Black and we could not have been happier with their service! They kept the dance floor packed and moving all night, and it was downright hysteria towards the end of the evening! We had countless guests tell us that they were the best wedding band they'd ever heard. Beyond their AWESOME performance, Jeff is truly great to work with. He's professional, responsive and completely puts you at ease around every detail of the event. We had several last minute requests which Jeff was able to accommodate without hesitation. We HIGHLY recommend Men in Black for any bride and groom who want to guarantee that they have an unforgettable reception. They are worth every penny and you will not be disappointed!

January 17, 2015 wedding at the Willowdale Estate, in Topsfield, MA
I came across Men in Black in the preferred vendor list for a venue I was interested in and was very impressed from the beginning. My review is based upon a few categories that I found to be the most important for vendors: Communication: 5/5. Tania was efficient, responsive, professional in all email/phone calls. I felt very comfortable coordinating with her. She had all of my information at her fingertips and I was confident that she was on top of her game. Not only that, but she remembered so many little details I had mentioned in our conversations. Timeliness of response: 5/5- Tania either emailed or called with follow-up. When she needed to get more information, she let me know realistic timing. Last-minute-detail-planning: 5/5. Jeff, the leader of MIB, arranged to call us a few weeks out to discuss the full schedule, as well as review pronunciations/requests. He accommodated several last-minute requests (as well as LEARNED a song for our last slow-song!). I had complete faith that he had everything under control. Day-of: 10/5. Men in Black exceeded every expectation (and we had high expectations!). They told us to trust them with the flow of the wedding - they were SO right. Many of our guests commented that it moved along at just the right pace and they LOVED the song that they played right before dinner to set the mood for a great time. By the end of the wedding, they had everyone on their feet! Value: Tania worked with my budget to make a dream come true. My father always wanted a live band at a wedding and Tania flexed to give us a great deal to make it a reality. Overall: From start to finish, Tania and Jeff were excellent to work with. We appreciated how they remembered all of the little details (we mentioned a few of my husband's favorite songs and they played them when they announced us!) and were quick with responses. We could not have been happier with how everything turned out. We still hear from our guests that it was one of the best weddings they have attended. Having a band was a splurge for our budget, but we did not regret one minute or penny of it. One closing remark...Trust Jeff and his expertise - I guarantee your day will be as rockin' as mine was! p.s. We can't wait to go see their alternate band "Spike the Punch" at bars around Boston again! It's a GREAT way to spend a night out!

January 10, 2015 wedding at the Old Sturbridge Village, in Sturbridge, MA
Booking Men in Black was BY FAR the best decision that we made in planning our wedding. The atmosphere that Jeff and the rest of Men and Black created was indescribable; not a single person was sitting by the evening! In addition to being totally professional, responsive, and easy to work with, this band brought our wedding to another level with their upbeat personalities and ability to read the crowd, playing FOR THEM specifically. Our guests have not stopped raving about how much fun they had and how phenomenal our band was. My husband and I have had the pleasure of attending a couple other events during which Men in Black performed, (which is how we initially heard about them) and our experience was exactly the same. We've had more fun dancing to them than any other band or DJ, and I cannot say enough how amazing it was to work with them, or how thankful we are that we chose this band! We felt the pricing was reasonable, however Bride-to-bride, if anyone reading this feels differently or has a tighter budget, because believe me I know it gets overwhelming at times, my advise is to book Men in Black first and find other/ ways to trim your budget. Trust me, you WILL NOT regret it!! They are truly one of a kind!
Bryanna and Dan
November 22, 2014 wedding at the Chatham Bars Inn in Chatham, MA
We just got married and, in no uncertain terms, Jeff and Men in Black MADE our wedding. For starters, they learned a new song for me and the bride to perform for our first dance, and their execution was FLAWLESS. Then...they delivered perfect song choice throughout the reception, getting the night started off right with great, upbeat classics that appealed to every generation. The dance floor was packed and bumping all night. Men in Black creates fantastic energy. At separate points they surprised us by getting the Brides & Bridesmaids up on stage to perform alongside them...and then, of course, the Groom & Groomsmen had their shot at a rebuttal (we dominated, obviously). Last, the band came back to perform THREE SEPARATE ENCORES! The guests would not stop screaming "One more song!" and they came back to deliver...For what it's worth, this is the very first review I've ever written of anything/anyone on a website. But I had to do it because Jeff & Men in Black deserve it. Your wedding night is arguably the most important night of your life, and you would be foolish to not give STRONG CONSIDERATION to Men in Black.

November 1, 2014 wedding at the Red Barn at Outlook Farm, in South Berwick, ME
We knew we HAD to have Men in Black when we saw them perform at a bar in Boston... and thats exactly what we did! We booked them immediately and we could not be happier with our decision to do so. The communication with Hank Agency since day one was amazing. The band leader Jeff called one week before to make sure he correctly pronounced all members of the bridal party and to go over our expectations for the evening. It was really awesome to be able to go over everything with Jeff to help relieve some of my stress!!
Men in Black was amazing from start to finish the night of our wedding. Our guests cannot stop raving about how awesome they were and how great of a time they had. Everyone truly had a BLAST. I really enjoyed how the band incorporated my bridesmaids, my mother and my mother in law into singing "Girls Just wanna have fun" and then my husband, groomsmen and fathers into singing "Shipping up to Boston". It was an incredible time and I can't imagine a more PERFECT wedding band!!

October 18, 2014 wedding at Danversport Yacht Club in Danvers, MA
We could not have asked for a better experience than we had with Men in Black. Their sound, energy, and professionalism was incredible. I have been to many weddings and have not heard a better band than Men in Black. They got the crowd going early and no one could leave the dance floor once they did. They are incredibly nice people too and very easy to work with.
All of our guests went out of their way to tell us how great they were.
I would recommend Men in Black to anyone.

October 12, 2014 wedding at the Red Lion in Cohassett, MA
These guys were amazing. We've been to a lot of weddings and I've never seen a band that could better time their song choice and keep people on the dance floor all night. They do an amazing job interacting with the crowd and wedding party, incorporating your tastes and song choices, and controlling the tempo of the event. We couldn't count the number of guests that came up to us and told us how amazing the band was. Also worth noting, they are EXTREMELY easy to work with, which is very much appreciated when planning your own wedding. Jeff is a great guy and it was refreshing to work with a flexible, easy going group of people. You won't regret booking them!

September 27, 2014 wedding at the Dunes Club in Narragansett, RI
Great musicians with a huge playlist. The dance floor was never empty - turned a country club wedding into a party no one will forget. Elaine at Hankagency was amazingly helpful and Jeff (the band leader) took a lot of time with us to get the details right. Jeff used his experience and our (extensive) list of requests to put together a perfect night from the first dance (Alison Krauss) to the last (Michael Buble). MIB are not cheap, but it's the best money I've ever spent.

I highly recomend this band. We knew we wanted a live band but is really hard to sort through everything online and find one that you know will please your guests and cater to your own personality. Men in Black was most definitely the best wedding band we could have asked for, and our guests LOVED them! Jeff is a real professional. He took the time to go over all of our song choices with me ahead of time and walked us through the timeline very thouroughly. When it was time for the wedding party to be announced he was right there with us organizing the wedding party and giving us diection. He was willing to work with us on many aspects of the night-even learn a new song. I will say that when we planned our September 6 wedding we were expecting an early fall, outdoor production. I certainly did not expect a 90 degree day with thunderstorms, tornado warnings and power outages in the forecast! Men in black did not miss a beat when we the storm caused the lights in our tent to go out. My family and friends keep telling us it was the most memorable night they have experienced in a long time and I wouldn't want it to have gone any other way. It could have gone very badly if Men in Black hadn't kept the show running so smoothly. And what a dramatic effect the weather was. Between MIB's preformance and the awesome wedding guests we had, it was just the most fun ever. I have never seen so many people on the dance floor before dinner was served. When the night was coming to an end the band played 3 encores and people definitely wanted more. I can't tell you how many people have told us they loved our band. MIB completed our night and hope to recommend you to many people in the future!

September 6, 2014 wedding at The Estate at Moraine Farm in Beverly, MA
Best wedding band ever! We hired Men in Black for our wedding at Glen Magna Farms in Danvers through the Hank Agency. The Hank Agency was very easy to work with and very professional. Easy to schedule, book, communicate song preferences, add cocktail hour, etc. The band leader Jeff was also easy to work with. Talked to him for ~1h a week before the wedding to go over the details and song preferences. Most importantly, our guests loved the band. Full of energy. Great sound. Got everyone dancing. Many, many guests told us this was the best wedding band they'd ever seen. Everyone danced the whole party until the very end, even though it was hot and wet that August evening. Don't hesitate to hire Men in Black!

August 31, 2014 wedding at Glen Magna Farms, in Danvers, MA
We've been to weddings where this band played and knew that we had to have them at ours. They're the type that keep the party going, engage the patrons to entice them on the dance floor, to sing a-long with and play instruments with them as the rock the night away. In addition to having fabulous voices and awesomely talent instrument abilities, they really rock the crowd! After our wedding we received so many compliments about how fun it was and how fabulous the band was. They really made it a memorable evening for all, which is exactly what we were looking for, a fun let loose, memorable wedding.
The above estimated price, in addition to the wedding reception, included the keyboardist at our wedding ceremony and music during our cocktail hour.
If you're looking to make is a memorable night for all, and beyond the typical stuffy wedding reception atmosphere, then this is the best money you'll spend. People remember the food only if it's really bad or if it's absolutely fantastic, they may fondly remember the ceremony, but what they'll remember the most is how fun of a time they had, for this, a band like Men In Black is essential, and far surpasses what a mere DJ can do - live music of every genre, varied voices and instruments, an energetic group who interact with patrons and get them involved so the party won't stop all night. Jeff, the lead singer even snapped a photo in our photo booth mid-song to capture the memories!

August 29, 2014 wedding at Tower Hill Botanical Gardens, in Boylston, MA
Jeff and his band were great! I read the reviews saying, "Stop searching- you've found your band!" but that would have been too easy, so I still went to see them twice before booking. I should have saved myself the time because I knew they would be awesome and they were! Jeff worked with us and was so easy going! He pays great attention to detail and doesn't miss a beat! They let me surprise my new husband by singing a song- he was so surprised and it was a great memory for both of us. Also, they played their set straight through in order to keep up the momentum for our Sunday night wedding. We were so grateful- no one provides service like that anymore! Every time I see a guest, they always say, "That band! Where did you find them?!?" Big hit with the whole crowd and a big topic of conversation at breakfast the next morning! Just keep in mind that their goal is to keep everyone up and dancing so if you want a slow song- ask for one. Truly skilled musicians with a band leader who had just as much fun as we did! My brother is a professional musician so I was really nervous about what he would think and he loved them. I don't regret spending this part of our budget with Men in Black! Do yourself a favor and book them already!

I just had my daughters wedding at Ocean Edge in Brewster. My daughter and her husband chose Men in Black and what a great choice. They were fantastic. After the bride and groom danced their first dance the band called everyone in the room up to dance and it was amazing. After that, the dance floor was consistently packed. I highly recommend this band. Your guests will have the best time of their life. They are amazing.

I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for their wedding to be a great time to hire Men In Black. They took fun to the next level! Everyone at our wedding could not stop talking about them and we even had one guest try to pay for them to travel to South Carolina for his son's wedding. You will not be disappointed they are worth every penny!

July 26, 2014 wedding at Wentworth by the Sea in New Caste, NH
I'll start off first by saying that I rarely write reviews, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity tell everyone how great Men in Black truly is! From the time we booked them to the day of our wedding, they were easy to communicate with and always prompt in their responses. Jeff, the band leader, called us to discuss our song choices and I can honestly say they followed exactly what we wanted. We had not heard Men in Black before but we were recommended to contact the Hank Agency by a friend. There are two things that make a wedding; the music and food! Men in Black had EVERYONE dancing all night long. Im still getting compliments from both friends and older family members of how excellent they were. As a true attestation of their talent, I have passed along their information to not only guests of my wedding, but friends of guests who attended. We can't thank Jeff and the band enough for making the night so special. If you're lucky enough to get this band for your event - you will not be disappointed!!!

July 19, 2014 wedding at the Seaport Hotel in Boston, MA
If you are planning to have live entertainment at your wedding, Men In Black is the only way to go. After the first dance (which they performed beautifully), MIB jumped straight into an upbeat song to "warm up the dance floor" and nobody sat down for the rest of the night. The band did an amazing job of adjusting to the crowd: they played oldies and classics early in the night, keeping the older generation on the dance floor, then they switched to the newer music as the night went on and the older crowd began to go to bed. My biggest fear of the night was that the reception would turn into a concert, or that the entertainment would not work out. When I spoke to Jeff about a week before the wedding to review the plan, he put me at ease and I left all of the entertainment in his hands. I could not have been happier. Jeff, the rest of the band, and everyone at Hank Agency are professional, fun, responsive, and very good at being the entertainment at your wedding. Their only mission is to make sure people are smiling, dancing, and enjoying the celebration.
My recommendation: hire Men In Black, let them know any specific kind of music you do not want to hear and any favorite songs you would like, then turn over control and let them do what they do best - provide you and your guests with top notch music and entertainment all night. You will not regret a thing.

My husband and I got married on June 21st, 2014. In researching wedding bands I came across Men In Black and was really interested. We went and saw them play at Rockafellas in Salem and booked them the very next day. They are amazing!! Jeff is awesome and so easy to work with. We used them for our ceremony as well, and I was having trouble deciding on songs...Jeff called me and was playing/singing songs over the phone for me and helped us plan out the whole thing. People have different ideas about what makes a wedding...For us, Men In Black made our wedding!! No one left the dance floor. They know exactly what to play to get people up and moving. Our friends and family were blown away by their energy and could not stop talking about how fantastic they were. In fact, we just had a cousin tell us that he recommended them to a friend who is currently looking for a wedding band. If you are looking for a wedding band that is high energy, fun, easy to work with, professional and that will make your wedding one that no one will ever forget, hire Men In Black!! AMAZING!!

June 21, 2014 wedding at the Granite Links in Quincy, MA
I've been in over eleven Weddings (Bridesmaid and Maid of Honor) and attended as a guest in many more; in my opinion the Band can make or break a Wedding. After some Internet research, we settled on Men In Black -- absolutely brilliant choice. They were AMAZING! My Fiancé and I pored through a very extensive list of songs several months prior to the Wedding and selected from almost every era. The list itself was impressive; the songs actually performed the night of our Wedding...brought the house down. The dance floor was consistently packed and Jeff, the Band leader, kept it going all night long. (I think they took just one short break.) The next morning we hosted a brunch and everyone raved about the Band (and the food). We highly recommend Men in Black!
Melissa and Ken
June 14, 2014 wedding at the Wequassett Inn in Harwich, MA
I have never written a review before, but thought Jeff and "Men in Black" were so sensational -- I needed to let people (who are planning a wedding or other event) know just how important "Men in Black" were in making our son's wedding such an incredible party.
Right form the start, Pam (from the Hank Agency) and Jeff were extremely supportive and helpful. They actually guided us through and helped construct the timeline for the reception. (We figured they had been part of many more weddings than we had -- and would know what worked best in keeping the party going.) They made the entire process a pleasure and the party a great success.
"Men in Black" are unbelievable musicians/singers, with a playlist pages and pages long -- which span decades (up to the most current songs.)
I can't imagine having a better party -- and it was Jeff who really kept the party moving and kept everyone out on the dance floor.
We had guests of all ages and from all over the country -- and all had an amazing time. So many people told us they were the best band they had ever heard at a wedding. We feel so lucky to have found them.
I would highly recommend them...and am looking for an excuse to have another party so we can use them again!

May 17, 2014 wedding at the Labelle Winery in Amhurst, NH
My husband and I knew we wanted to have a band for the reception so we did a lot of research to make sure we picked a band we knew would make it a great night and worth the higher cost than a DJ. Men in Black had such great reviews so I ended up going with my sister to watch them play in a bar to make sure we were making the right choice, well they were incredible! I wanted to book them in right then and there. Jeff is so professional and knows how to make an incredible night for all the guests. My husband is Australian and our Aussies guests had the time of their lives! He went above and beyond anything we could have asked for. All of our guests still talk about how amazing Men in Black were. I'd give them higher than a 5 out of 5 rating if I could!

April 26, 2014 wedding at the Hoosic Club in Milton, MA
Seriously, the words I'm going to write won't even do justice to the greatness of Men in Black.
The bride and I (the maid of honor) found Men in Black on wedding wire and went to hear them play at a local bar. They were outstanding! But we had no idea how much more energy they give to a wedding!!!
First of all, the band sounded great! But they were much more than music -- they set the tone for the reception. They got everyone on the dancefloor straight away and also after salads, and then everyone couldn't wait for after dinner to dance again. They had a great game for the centerpiece, which had even the quiet family members up and dancing! Later in the night, they brought the wedding party on stage for a few songs and we felt like rockstars! The ending songs were so fun and the couple left in a tunnel! We weren't expecting all these small details! All the wedding guests have complimented us on finding such a great band. You won't regret booking with Men in Black.
Even all these fun details aside, they are talented musicians who truly love music.
Jeff was also very helpful when planning the playlist and schedule for the reception!
I highly recommend Men in Black!!

Dear Jeff & the band,
Thank you for one of the most memorable nights of our lives! You & the band were amazing & we have received so many compliments on how great you sounded & the broad range of songs you played. You were super easy to work with & the evening flowed wonderfully! Thank you for learning our first dance song, it sounded awesome & I can't wait to hear it on our wedding video! I would 100% recommend Men in Black to play at any wedding or event because they will wow you until the end! My bridesmaids & I are already planning our trip to the pier in old orchard to see you play, can't wait!! Thank you so much!

April 12, 2014 wedding at the Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, RI
Jeff and the band were the talk of our wedding - absolutely incredible. My wife and I picked the band through some of these Boston wedding review sites, choosing them after we checked out their site videos and extensive song list. We never saw them live so we had some questions, but there was nothing to worry about at all. They killed it. They nailed a vast array of hit songs through the decades that appealed to all of our guests and kept the flow of the reception rocking. Jeff was a great MC too, helping transition the first dances, getting the crowd involved on the dance floor, and adding a little surprise at the end of the night, all in ways that kept to our more subtle reception theme. Can't push a recommendation for these guys enough.

Men in Black Wedding Band, esp. Jeff, Was truly amazing. My mom heard them 5 years ago and remembered them being amazing, then with a group of friends we went and listened to them in Salem, and we danced the night away. So we booked them. MIB band rocked our wedding, they had the crowd dancing the whole entire night, despite the wedding being the same time as a playoff patriots game. (FYI, Husband, Family, and Friends all are diehard fans with season tickets.. Unsure how the wedding was still one once the schedule came out) I am so happy with the choice we made! They were a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process; very quick to respond and spent lots of time getting to know us! They learned our wedding song and surprised us with a song that was my girlfriends and my favorite dance song. They were so fun! So interactive! Played to please to crowd! Best money I spent the wedding money on!!! I can't wait to see them play somewhere else.. I may become a groupie...

If you want a band that will completely rock your wedding, please choose Men in Black. We got married on New Years Eve, and Men in Black completely made the party! We come from families of musicians, and everyone was blown away with how amazing the band was-- they kept everyone on the dance floor all night long! We can't say enough about Jeff and the band-- thank you for everything!!

December 31, 2013 wedding at the Spring Valley Country Club in Sharon, MA
Men in Black played at our wedding this past Saturday night at The Hawthorne Hotel in Salem and they were amazing!!! Jeff and the band kept the crowd up and moving the whole night - and the age of our crowd went from 7 to 87. They played the perfect mix of music from the decades and honored all of our requests. They interacted with the crowd in subtle ways that got people involved and moving without putting anyone on the spot. Even my non-dancing groom was on the dance floor the majority of the night! We received so many compliments from our guests about the band. Choosing Men in Black was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. I highly recommend Men in Black.
Katie + Mike
December 28, 2014 wedding at the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem, MA
This is the band you want to have. They know what you want without knowing you. They understand the crowd and how to make your event the most memorable one. All guests will dance, guaranteed! Great voices, great musicians, great performance. And a plus: approachable, flexible, fun and friendly. Again, this is the band
November 16, 2013 birthday party in Winchester, MA
Jeff and the rest of the crew in Men in Black rocked our wedding. They were awesome to deal with leading up to the event, we had a great time going through the song lists to highlight the type of music we liked. A couple days before the wedding Jeff took the time on Sunday to go through the minute by minute details of the event and practice the various names of friends and family he had to pronounce correctly when the time came. Jeff is very passionate about what he does and puts a lot of emphasis on the way he crafts his play lists to maximize the energy and streamline the flow of the reception. They played songs across multiple generations and managed the flow and tempo of the entire night. The band appealed to all of our guests and we got an incredible amount of compliments on the band from all the guests we've talked to since. Jeff even tried to fulfill one of my late night song requests in the moment. We would highly recommend getting these guys booked for your event you will not be disappointed. Jeff and company - Thanks again for an awesome time and great memories we'll never forget. We will keep an eye out to see when your playing down town and try to catch you guys at one of your bar gigs./p>

Men in Black is absolutely the BEST of the BEST! At first we were hesitant on having a band at our wedding, however once we heard MIB play live we simply knew that they would be the best choice for us. Jeff and MIB completely brought our wedding to the next level. Jeff and the Hank Agency were great to work with from start to finish and made every effort to meet our wedding needs. They were even able to learn the song that we wanted as our first song! MIB set a great tone for the night by playing songs that appealed to all generations.They managed the perfect balance of engaging the wedding guests and had all the guests out on the dance floor from the start of the night until the end. We received so many compliments throughout the night about what an amazing job the band was doing, and we both agree that they made the night incredible. We can't say enough great things about MIB, they made our special day something that we will never forget. We would not hesitate to recommend them, and if an opportunity arises for us to have them at another event we would not even think twice about having them be there.

If you’re looking for a wedding band then you need to book this band NOW! Everyone that attended our wedding cannot stop talking about Men In Black and how awesome they were. This band is incredibly talented and they play a wide range of songs that will appeal to all age groups. Every band member was absolutely professional and phenomenal. Men In Black had the dance floor bouncing, they engaged with the people in attendance, they truly showed passion and excitement for the music they were preforming. Jeff Fraser is a rock star, he was truly a pleasure to work with and helped guide us through our day by utilizing his expertise. This band is there for your special day, will work with you, and will be flexible to meet your needs. The band even provided guitar music for our cocktail hour. We knew we wanted a band but had no idea how to go about picking one or what we should expect. We came across the Hank Agency website and viewed/listened to the youtube clips and sample music. We were able to see Men In Black perform live and we knew we had to have them. This band far exceeded our expectations and we are grateful for their performance. If you’re nervous about hiring a band, think they would be too loud or too expensive then you’re wrong. The audio level of the music was absolutely appropriate and everyone in attendance was able to have a great time. This band was reasonably priced and worth every penny. Put any hesitance you may have aside and hire Men In Black because they will make your wedding reception a success!

October 6, 2013 wedding at Warren Conference Center in Ashland, MA
Pam, Jeff and MIB were so easy to work with, total professionals and made my wedding absolutely rock! Booking through Pam couldn't have been easier - she was fast to get back to you and great at coordinating with the band.
Once the wedding was getting closer we spoke with Jeff and since we had seen the band at my sister's wedding we knew they were going to be fabulous. Jeff did MC duty and DJed since the dinner was in a separate space from the dance because of our venue for the first part of the night. We forgot to get our ipod to him until we were lined up to go into the other room and he just handled it so smooth and had his own ready to go in an instant. Once we were in the music room to dance they played 3 sets of music that had our friends and family going absolutely crazy! Everyone was dancing and having fun until midnight.... They closed the night with Trouble by Ray LaMontange that they learned for us and it makes me cry to even think about it! Just perfect.
Between the amazing musicians (the female singer and bass player especially earned themselves a few fans) and non stop energy (the singer stayed on the dance floor and got down during their set breaks!) I couldn't have asked for more.

October 5, 2013 wedding at the Seven Hills Inn in Lenox, MA
If you're looking for a band for your wedding, book Men in Black RIGHT NOW! They completely made our wedding. They went completely above and beyond, and surpassed all of our expectation. They were high energy, and everyone danced all night long. They even got onto the dance floor themselves! They played a great mix of music, and my guests told me afterwards that everyone (old and young) heard multiple songs they knew and wanted to dance to. In general, we got countless comments from our guests that they loved the band. We even heard some comments through the grapevine, so we know people weren't just saying it to be nice to us!They called me and my bridesmaids, and then my husband and his groomsmen, on stage and had us dance and play instruments - it was great fun! They also called my little brother (who is disabled and dreams of being famous) onto stage and gave him a tambourine to play, letting him stay up there as long as he wanted. He had a blast, and told my dad when he went to bed that it had been the best day of his life.
In short, if you want a band for your wedding, you can't get any better than Men in Black. All of the band members are personable and wonderful, and they will make your wedding amazing.

October 4, 2013 wedding at the Mountain View Grand Resort and Spa in Whitefield, NH
Jeff and the band were just fantastic. He was engaged and available for any pre-planning calls, and on 'game day' they performed just as expected - they were amazing. Jeff even accomodated a special request to have a friend of ours get up and play a surprise song for my new husband. As you're reading all the amazing reviews, its hard to not get a little skeptical, but you will not be disappointed with Jeff and MIB. We were just so pleased with how smoothly the music portion of our big day went. We danced our a$$es off, and seeing everyone from 18-80 out on the dance floor enjoying the music and having such a great time is simply invaluable. Just goes to show how good Jeff and the entire band are. Truly a sensational group of musicians, and we're so happy to have had them for our wedding. Thank you to Jeff and MIB for an awesome, unforgettable night!!

September 28, 2013 wedding at the Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA
We had Men In Black perform at our wedding. We could not have been happier with our choice for our band! They were absolutely incredible!! Prior to the wedding, Jeff (the band leader) was in constant communication with us, ensuring that every detail was addressed and organized so that the evening would flow smoothly. Jeff was truly a professional. He took our input while also incorporating his own feedback to ensure the wedding went smoothly but was unique to our wishes as well. He helped us to feel calm and incredibly excited about our upcoming event. We knew we were in good hands!
The band was absolutely incredible at our wedding! They paid attention to all of our song choices while also incorporating hits that got the crowd dancing all night. Their voices were superb and the flow of the night was seamless. Jeff and the band exuded professionalism, enthusiasm and had an electric energy that kept everyone dancing the ENTIRE night!! Everyone commented throughout the night how they had never seen a wedding where “no one sat down” and the dance floor was packed the entire night. This was all due to Men in Black and their incredible voices, song selection, enthusiasm, and charisma.
We can’t thank them enough for giving us the best celebration and dance party we could have imagined. We would recommend them wholeheartedly to everyone and anyone who has a wedding!!

September 21, 2013 wedding at Stonover Farm in Lenox, MA
Men in Black was STELLAR!!!!! We had them play at our wedding (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception) and we were overwhelmed with compliments about them! From the quick replies at booking, to flexibility with our venue they by far exceeded our expectations. They kept the dance floor going all night, played the right songs at just the right time, and bounced back quickly from a power snafu (something blew at the venue and they were back up in 5 minutes!) They honored my song requests (even let me know when a particular song was coming on) and learned a new song to play for my first dance. I would 1,000% recommend Men In Black for a function band! I can't say enough good things about them!!!!!!!

What a fabulous night!
Men in Black played our wedding at the New England Aquarium on 9/7/13 and we had a blast! The event spoke for itself, we have had so many people telling us it was one of the best weddings they have been to and I think the band had a lot to do with that. Tania, Jeff and the rest of the band worked so hard to make sure we got what we wanted and we sure did! The dance floor was packed all night. Especially with this crazy bride rocking out to every song! Our most special memory will be when the band allowed my husband and his band members to come up and play a few songs, which really got the audience excited and made it a very personal and unforgettable night! A big thank you to you all!!!
Michelle and Jack
September 7, 2013 wedding at the New England Aquarium in Boston, MA
Be prepared to dance all night long!
My husband and I originally saw the Men in Black performing at a bar in Boston before we even got engaged. Once we were engaged, we wondered if that awesome band we'd heard in the past does weddings. Obviously, they do, and we booked them immediately. I'm being completely honest when I say that the Men in Black is worth every penny you will spend for them!!!
A few months before the wedding I filled out a questionnaire and my husband and I circled songs in their playlist that we really loved, and those we didn't so much. The men in black honored our song choices and played almost all of our favorites. The week before the wedding the band leader, Jeff, called us up and personally walked through how the night was going to go. He gave ideas where he thought they would be helpful, but was never pushy.
Fast forward to the wedding. They started the night off with classic 40s-60s. Slower, softer music during dinner. Once dinner was done, they really kicked off the night. Once everyone started dancing, there was no stopping them. The band was really good about keeping up the energy and involving the crowd, but not in an awkward way. They really made the night special and both my husband and I can't thank the Men in Black enough.

I am the father of the groom and the Pastor that performed the ceremony. Men in Black provided our family with the best reception I have ever been a part of. They were tight musically, very open to requests and having a number of singers in the crowd join is. They were excellent playing Sinatra to Rihanna, Beatles to Big and Rich. When they played Africa on the spot in response to a request, I was compelled to write a review. These guys are the best. Just book them.

I am (was?!?) the mother of the bride and have been to a zillion weddings. 'Men in Black' (which includes Claire!) was the best wedding band I have ever heard. The fact that it was my daughter's wedding was a HUGE bonus. The dance floor was full all night from early twenties crowd through the sixty-somethings. How they did it would seem to be a combination of pure talent, a huge repertoire and flexibility. My rating is actually 5+++

If you want to be sure that you have the wedding of the century, you NEED to hire Men In Black! A band truly makes your wedding but this band is amazing. They had a packed dance floor the entire night! The music and talent is unbelievable. Based on reviews and seeing them play at a local bar, we knew that they would be good, but they absolutely blew everyone out of the water. Jeff was great to work with and Pamela was always immediately communicating with you any questions, concerns, or to do lists. Men In Black also played at our ceremony and then had background music set up for cocktail hour. We couldn't have been happier that we chose them and would recommend them a million times! Can't go wrong!

Best Wedding Band! Everyone danced all night!!
My husband and I are so happy with Men in Black! From the moment we started working with Jeff, everyone was so professional. Jeff listened to what we wanted. We were recently married at the Barn at Gibbet Hill and had Men in Black perform for our cocktail hour and reception. The band was phenomenal. All of our family and friends danced the entire night. People kept telling us during the event how good the band was! I had relatives dancing who never dance. I am still receiving feedback from our family about the band. Even our other vendors kept commenting about how great they are! The band started the evening with music from the 50s/60s and worked their way to present day music. They made us (the bride & groom) feel so special! I hope some of our friends hire them in the future. I can't wait to hear Men in Black again.

How many different ways are there to say “Awesome”? Certainly you could start by saying “The Men In Black”!!!
Maybe you could say “Energy”, maybe you could say “Talent”, maybe you could say “Fun”.
You would have to say “Pride in their performance” and “Commitment to their client’s wedding day success”.
Or how about “Passion for the music” that they have played hundreds of times?
And what about “Knowing how to work an audience”? Or “Creating a lifetime memory”?
I guess you could say all these things but not be limited to only these. But you could start with,… in fact you would have to start with “The Men In Black”
Did I forget to say we liked this group?
Simply FABULOUS!!! Thank you Jeff and The Men In Black,

Let me just start by saying Men In Black ROCKED our wedding!! We knew from the start that we wanted a band over a DJ and had went to listen to a few different bands play. After hearing Men In Black (Spike The Punch at bars) play their first song we knew we had to have them!
Jeff was great to deal with. We talked ahead of time about what types of songs we wanted to hear and the flow of the whole night, and it was beyond perfect!
After our first dance the band called everyone to the dance floor to get the party started even before we ate dinner. It definitely set the tone of the entire night. The dance floor was never empty and the entire crowd danced the night away! I loved how Men In Black got the crowd involved in their performance. They invited myself and my bridal party to join them for a song and my husband and his groomsmen for another song. They welcomed guests to join in on helping them sing songs and really just kept the crowd rocking!!!
I would highly recommend Men In Black if you want to dance the night away! I cant tell you how many people came up to me after the wedding and said it was the best wedding they had ever been to and the best wedding band they had ever seen at a wedding!
Thank you for everything Jeff & Men In Black....we will be seeing you soon out in Boston!!!

I can't say enough how amazing this band was - they totally rocked our wedding and everyone is talking about their energy! Jeff (the band leader) was extremely helpful throughout the process. They played all of our requests and certainly know how to rock a crowd. They made our day so amazing! Thanks Men In Black!!!

Phenomenal, Fun, Professional.
From the moment we contacted Hank Agency to inquire about Men in Black, until we said good-bye at the end of our wedding reception, the experience was equal parts fun and professional. As you start to plan your wedding you realize there are certain details you really care about, and for us it was the music. My husband and I had seen the MIB perform at a wedding several years ago and everyone was on the dance floor the entire night. It was one of the most fun weddings we had ever been to so when we got engaged the priority became locking down this band.
We booked the band about a year in advance, and had plenty of time to decide on what songs we wanted for the various dances. Everyone was always responsive to emails, and we were able to cover absolutely everything that needed to be discussed with Jeff the Monday before our wedding. We talked about timing, any additional songs they could learn or bring back, and went over the introductions. MIB learned a few extra songs for us that week and each one was executed amazingly! They added personal touches (i.e., intros) to each song that we requested, which made the performance that much more special and memorable. MIB were also able to mic our ceremony and the keyboardist performed the ceremony music. Jeff and the band took care of everything and worked seamlessly with our venue. We felt completely taken care of throughout the whole process and the entire night.
Now over a month has passed since our wedding and, not surprisingly, the band is what our guests are still talking about. The musicians in this band clearly love their craft and genuinely want you and your guests to have the absolute best time. Our guests continue to rave about how fun and incredible MIB were, and they particularly loved how the band interacted with the crowd. Even those guests who don't dance much loved the band because they just enjoyed being at a live concert. We were thrilled that MIB were as amazing as we remembered. MIB brought the perfect energy and set the tone early for an incredible dance party.
Thank you to Pamela at Hank Agency, Jeff, and the rest of the musicians of MIB for making our wedding such an exciting and unforgettable celebration!

Best part of our wedding!
There are differing opinions on what makes a wedding – some say food, some say alcohol, some say the people, the bride and groom,and some say the music. And though all of these things combined made our wedding day amazing, I can honestly say that Men and Black made our wedding the most spectacular and seamless event possible. Jeff was basically the host of our night and he did it like he had known us forever and had planned the wedding with me.
First and foremost when hunting down a band it honestly wasn’t all the great reviews and awards Men and Black had received that sold us – but rather they came as a referral from a friend who had worked with them planning a wedding and had attending a wedding they were at. I hope whoever reads this review doesn’t need that extra step – and if so you can email me :). What we loved about them when we saw them was they were really a bands, band – if that makes any sense. Not some cheesy wedding band but a band you would go see at a bar when you knew they were in town because they are that good and play all genres.
It was a pleasure working with them and Elaine from Hank Agency from the onset. They helped let us know where they would be playing so we could come see them in action. We went a few times and met with Jeff and co and they were always so nice, friendly, energetic in person and just AMAZING as a band. Working with Elaine and Hank Agency was great simply because it was always organized and professional and I felt comfortable where everything was the entire time which was important because we booked them with 1.5 years to go before the wedding. They were so responsive to all our requests which was huge – we had met with and watched other bands and did not have the same experience.
As the wedding got closer we received a very detailed form asking for all sorts of information and a schedule of events so the band could really be the MC of our wedding and make sure everything went smoothly and according to our vision. They were willing to learn our first song and were happy to accommodate a few of my very silly requests – but those that were important to us. Jeff never made any of my thoughts or requests seem silly – he genuinely wanted to give us the best night of our lives and if he could help, he did. Jeff and I did a call the week of the wedding to walk through the schedule, people’s names – how to pronounce them, their order, etc. He made some great suggestions on things I hadn’t even thought about which was so helpful given he is at weddings for a living. Everything went off without a hitch and Jeff and co made the night go perfectly- which was important to me as the planner.
To our guest, MORE IMPORTANTLY, Men in Black just ROCKED. I have never received so many compliments on anything in my life – people of all ages were dancing all night. They worked the crowd, felt out what songs were best next, played a great mix of some classics and modern music, engaged people and incorporated them in what they were doing, and really made the night. They were the foundation of the energy in the room and I couldn’t have been more happy with them. From the great, light music they played during the cocktail hour, (we had Jeff and piano), the introductions, to the first dance/family songs, then creating a full blown dance party that felt so personal I would recommend working with them to anyone that would listen.

Men in Black made my wedding so much fun it's hard to put into words. Everyone was on the dance floor all night and we even extended the wedding an extra half hour because everyone was dancing until the end.
I highly recommend using Men in Black. Everyone in the band was very professional and they did an amazing job with everything!

If there was a way to give them a 10 on this same scale we would. I cannot say enough good things about men in black. They performed our Ceremony, Cocktail hour, and Reception music. But were really the most fabulous entertainers I have ever encountered at a wedding. One of our guests who is a grammy winning musician himself (and generally dislikes wedding bands) said that they were the best wedding band he has ever heard. They tuly made our wedding reception amazing. They had everyone up and dancing the entire time! They played a variety of music that appealed to everyone there. We had the young wedding guests and the older guests seemingly equally entertained. We danced the whole time and also had some very special moments throughout the night, thanks to the Jeff and fabulous Men in Black.

Following is our (bride parents) review of MIB for Katie and Peter's wedding on April 27. We were thrilled with the overall event.
Men In Black performed at our daughter’s wedding on April 27, 2013. We had first seen MIB at the Dropkick Murphy wedding in 2010, and made a mental note to consider them for our daughter’s wedding. When the time came to select entertainment for our event, we did the due diligence of checking various groups, but nothing could knock MIB from the top of our list. Their performance at the cocktail hour (acoustic guitar) and during the reception was amazing. The dance floor was full with all ages the entire evening, from all of the bride and groom’s friends up to the 85 year-old great uncle. All of our guests loved the band, with comments like “brilliant choice” being typical. I would like to add a couple of specific kudos. We had many people with musical backgrounds as our guests, and not only were they impressed with the band, but I also heard specific positive comments about each individual member of the group. Jeff was a pleasure to work with and thorough in his preparation for the event. Our owner/innkeeper has been careful about who she will recommend as potential wedding vendors, and there were no bands on her list. That will change after having MIB perform at her venue. She was impressed with their talent, cooperation, and professionalism. As far as we are concerned, this was the best wedding ever!

Men In Black is an amazing wedding band!! They kept the crowd dancing all night long!! Jeff was awesome to work with and made sure the band played all of our requests. I told him I just wanted our reception to be a big party, and he made sure it was! He and the band really kept the momentum going throughout the reception, we all hated the party to end! People have been texting and emailing me since the wedding to tell me how much fun they had and how much they loved the band. I could not have been happier with my experience with Men In Black, they were awesome! We're hoping they're available in December to play at my sister's wedding!!

Looking for a wedding band? Look no further. Men In Black is the best band you will find. Your guests will leave amazed. We got married on February 2, 2013 and they were amazing. The band leader,Jeff, is a first class act. We used Jeff (guitar) and keyboards for our ceremony. Completely worth it and highly recommended. The music was beautiful. They did not disappoint. Our budget was tight but we didn't cut cost on the band. If you want your guests to leave wanting more this is the band for you. The dance floor was packed the entire night and they played something for everyone. They are very professional and I promise you will not be disappointed. If you have the opportunity go listen to them, then book them!

Men in Black are AWESOME! We (my husband and I) LOVE to dance so having live music, that would get everyone at our wedding going was a must-have for us! Men in Black has a phenomenal repertoire of music across so many decades that all of our wedding guests enjoyed their music and the ambiance that they created! We had a fabulous party, that is still being talked about as the event of 2013 by our guests! Jeff is an absolute pleasure to work and the band played all of our requested songs and so much more! Men in Black made our night and I’d highly recommend them to anyone who wants an AMAZING live band at their wedding!

Men in Black played at our wedding on 01Dec12. We used their keyboard player at our ceremony, and Jeff played guitar for our cocktail hour prior to playing for the full reception. All I have to say is - WOW. Men in Black truly made our wedding rock, and we could not have asked for a more energetic, talented band to make our wedding as perfect as it was. Jeff was insanely fun while still maintaining a professional attitude. He certainly took into account our preferences for music, but his band played a wide variety of all musical genres and eras to keep everyone up having fun! Jeff even had the bridal party up on stage for a few songs which was a blast. We are getting raves about our wedding band, as well as requests for contact information so family and friends can use this band.
Thanks so much Jeff and Men in Black for making our wedding not only fun, but memorable! We hope to run into you again soon, whether at a local club show, or another wedding!

I LOVE THIS BAND. I got married at the Memorial Church and had the reception at the StateRoom (Boston, MA) on 11/3/2012.
When I first heard about men in black, i contacted the venue, and i worked with DJ. DJ was SUPER responsive and took the initiative to get in touch with my coordinator to make sure all the details are set. DJ was IMMEDIATE in terms of answering all my questions and never left me hanging. Needless to say, I had a smooth time working with this company, and never had to worry about the band.
The band itself -- the band leader Jeff is AWESOME. He called me a week before the wedding and went over the details with me. Some may say that a week is too close to the wedding, but trust me all you bridezillas, we will all make a million changes during that final two weeks. So, jeff spent over an HOUR on the phone going over the details - the pronunciation, orders, games, time, break songs, etc. From the beginning to the end, we went over the schedule THREE times to make sure everything is set.
DUring the wedding, Jeff was good about getting the guests involved and played three encore songs along with any requests we had.
Most importantly, he was FLEXIBLE, accommodating, and made sure things flowed nicely. With his background, he knew what song to play and recommended perfect songs for my slide show as well. Fantastic and I wish I could give 10 stars out of 5. Thank you men in black!!!

Best Wedding Band ever!
Men in Black was an incredible addition to our wedding. We recently got married at Willowdale Estate in Topsfield. Jeff and his crew made sure the party was rocking from start to finish. They worked with us on all aspects of entertainment, allowing our friend to sing a song at the beginning of the night and they even allowing us (the newly married couple) to sing a couple songs with a group friends. Jeff listened to our suggestions and created a custom set for the party that hit on all our favorites. We are still hearing compliments about the band at our wedding and we are incredibly thankful for the effort Jeff and his team put into making our day so special.

Men in Black truly made our wedding reception. After seeing them engage the audience with songs from a range of decades at a Boston bar, we knew that they’d be able to get all of our guests moving. What happened at our reception far exceeded our already high expectations. From the very beginning of the night, Jeff was great at interacting with our guests and us. He was able to keep everything on schedule, which left us lots of time for dancing. The song selection was perfect, with enough good oldies at the beginning to entice the older generation, and enough enthusiasm and excitement to keep them dancing even as the band progressed into more current tunes. The wedding party had a ton of fun playing with the band for a few songs, and I was very impressed that Jeff was able to get my normally non-participating dad to play the bongo. Our guests have been raving about Men in Black since the wedding, claiming that they made our reception the most fun wedding they’d been to, and that MiB are the best band they’ve seen at a wedding. The dance floor was full the entire time, which is exactly what we wanted. We can’t thank Jeff and the band enough for being so accommodating and flexible in creating the perfect night for us. We highly recommend Men in Black to anyone hoping for a fun and truly memorable wedding reception. They are professionals who know exactly what they’re doing, and you can relax knowing that you’re in the hands of the very best! We hope to see Men in Black at many more weddings in the future!

My husband are out of town for a few days, but wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for all your efforts. The entire wedding was fabulous and the band's performance was a big part of the success of the evening- they over the top!
Jeff and the rest of the band did a great job of engaging all- young and old alike. My husband appreciated Jeff 's listening to his input- we all had great time- and no one more than my husband! Loved how they got everyone out of the ballroom at the end of the evening- bride and groom loved going through the tunnel of raised arms- it was a great ending.
I know Leslie and Jon plan on writing a review when they return from their honeymoon (in 10 days), but in the meantime please let Jeff, Amber and the rest of the band know how much we loved having them at the wedding!

I can sum up my review in four short words: “Hire Men in Black!!!” However, if you really need more detail, here is why they are so phenomenal: First, they are incredibly courteous and professional. Jeff, the band leader, contacted me approximately a week before my wedding to go over all the details – even with my numerous requests, including learning a special song, on the big day he executed flawlessly. Second, they are a one stop shop – they provided my ceremony music (acoustic piano, amazing!) and my cocktail hour music (acoustic guitar, also amazing!) at a very reasonable price. Third, they truly know all the hits and really feel out the crowd. They started with some oldies-but-goodies that were perfect for all our wedding guests, but, as the night went on, they switched to more modern music that really got the party started. They even played (and killed) “Some Nights” by Fun. which surprised me as it has only recently become popular – the guests loved it! Fourth, and this might seem silly, but they love what they do and it really shows! I know this is their “job”, but I can assure you it feels more like it is their “passion.” The lead singer danced with my mom, threw in a few special “surprises” for the wedding party (think cow-bell), and even played an extra-long encore because we were all having so much fun. Three weeks after the wedding, I continue to receive calls praising Men in Black. Trust me, hire them… it will be the best wedding decision you make!

We got married this past September and MIB performed at our reception and they hands down made our reception one of the best nights of our life! Not only are they professional and responsive which is important when planning a wedding, I loved how Jeff made suggestions on how the night should flow!! Everyone was dancing at our wedding all the way until the last song played, and our guests kept asking them for another song! The next day we received so many calls about how great the band was!! The 2 things people really remember about a wedding is the food and the entertainment (band). Men in Black won't let you down...trust me!! We are trying to figure out a way to celebrate our 1 year and have them perform again!! ;) Thank you MIB for making our night so special!

I don't even know where to begin. We have heard from the full range of our guests -- the 20 somethings to our 84-year-old grandparents -- that we had the best band. They literally had everyone jumping and dancing until we were literally forced out of the venue. Multiple people have told us that they were getting tired later in the night but decided to stay because the band was so good -- now THAT is what you want at your wedding! We honestly cannot thank MIB enough. Pamela was responsive and helpful from the beginning; she easily set us up with an AMAZING acoustic guitarist for the ceremony who literally set the exact tone we were going for, and she was always very friendly and patient with our different requests and questions. Jeff took a good chunk of his afternoon the Monday before our wedding (not including previous e-mail correspondances) to go through the entire night with us over the phone to make sure all details were ironed out, and it truly paid off the day of. We knew we were in good hands, and felt even more confident after our phone call with him. And the day of -- oh my. Energy, talent, and humor are just a few words that come to mind. On top of all of the band members being incredivly interactive with our guests, they were all so talented! We asked them to play some tricky songs and they literally nailed all of them. They also made sure to play the songs we really wanted to hear, which was greatly appreciated. I could go on and on, but I will leave it at this: we have MIB to thank 110% for making our reception the best party we have ever been to. No question, they are the best.

Best time of my life!
I couldn't possibly say enough great things about our experience with Men in Black. They completely rocked the wedding and our friends are still talking about how awesome they were. They had EVERYONE dancing all night and were great at keeping the flow of the night smooth. They did everything we asked them to do and more! Jeff (the lead singer) was so easy to deal with. He made suggestions and recommendations for things that we didn't even think of in planning. He knows exactly how to keep everything flowing smoothly and everyone having an excellent time. Having such an experienced and professional band took a lot of pressure off of us which was nice because the last thing we needed was more stress of coordinating bouquet tosses and cake cutting! If you want to have an awesome time at your wedding pick Men in Black, there is no doubt in my mind people will be talking about your wedding for years.

I would encourage anyone looking for a wedding band to hire Men in black. We we're recently married this summer and had Men in black as our band. They did an Incredible job. Jeff, the band Leader was very easy to work wirth and accomodating to any requests. The band was very interactive with guests and getting everyone involved, from being out on the dance floor himself to the wedding party playing the bongos and cow bell. Althought I am partial, of all the weddings I have been to and all the bands I've seen, I whole hartedly believe men in black to be the best. In the weeks after our wedding, I can't tell you how many of our guests went out of their way to tell us how much they enjoyed the band. So if anyone is looking for a Great Band for their wedding, Hire Men in Black. I promise you won't be dissapointed.

Men in Black totally exceeded our expectations. We wanted a band that was more of a really fun, talented, group of musicians and less chicken dance. This was hands down the best group of musicians I've seen perform at a wedding. They totally understood what kind of music and vibe we were going for and were able to create a play list that was absolutely perfect. Not to mention, they nailed our first dance song which to me is not always easy to do. They scattered little surprises here and there throughout the night that truly made the evening so memorable. I had a zillion people come up to me throughout the evening and ask who they were, and where we found them. If you want a band that will make everyone dance and at the same time be like these guys are way too good to be true, def hire MIB!!!

Best Wedding Band in Boston
Men in Black is an outstanding wedding band! They have a diverse repertoire of songs, which they perform incredibly well. Additionally, Men in Black was extremely easy to work with both before and on the day of the wedding. Before the wedding, Jeff, the band leader, was super responsive and willing to chat with us on numerous occasions to create the best mix of songs for our guests to enjoy. He truly wanted to give us the best wedding experience possible. And, on the day of the wedding, the band did an excellent job of reading the crowd and making everyone (young and old) feel equally welcome. Perhaps most importantly, they kept the 112 guests at our wedding reception on the dance floor all night long. Seriously, at the end of the night, our guests were chanting: "one more song! one more song!" With that kind of endorsement, we enthusiastically recommend that you hire Men in Black to perform at your wedding. They are the best!

The Best Wedding Band Ever!
I don't even know where to begin... This was the best live band I have ever seen at a wedding! They had almost all of our 300 guests on the dance floor the entire night! We met with the band leader, Jeff, a couple of months before the wedding to put in special requests and hash out all of the details, and everything was so perfect on our wedding day. He even nailed the pronunciation of all the names of family and bridal party introduced into the reception! Jeff also did the music for our outdoor ceremony and did a fantastic job on the three songs we asked him to play acoustically. The band's energy was fantastic and their musicianship was amazing - sometimes you couldn't tell they were covering the songs! They got me and the bridesmaids up on stage and gave us some instruments to play along to "Girl's Just Wanna Have Fun" and then got my husband and his groomsmen up to do a song. My husband, a musician himself, even got to sing a song with the band! Everyone we talk to keeps telling us how amazing the band was and that it was the best and most fun wedding they have been to!

No one was sitting down the entire night. They were so easy to work with. Took all our requests in to account and created a night we had only dreamed of. They even learned a song for my dad in 3 days and nailed it at the reception. I knew when I saw them 5 years ago at a friend's wedding they were the best. But they managed to exceed our expectations the night of the wedding. Great night! Best band, EVER.

We want to thank you for providing great music at Ann-Marie and Adam’s wedding. Everyone had such a wonderful time. The dance floor was full all night. You and your musicians are very talented. One of our closest friends told us he had to look to see who was singing, because on so many songs you sounded like the original band/person who recorded the song. Quite a testimonial!
You did not miss a beat and made the afternoon very personal. You made Uncle Tony’s day. People that usually don’t get off their chair and dance, were dancing the night away.
Thank you, thank you. I am sure we will be seeing you again. We do have a few more weddings to go.

We can't even begin to thank you and the Men in Black team for being the best wedding band we could have ever hoped for.
You had everyone up and dancing,the assortment of music was amazing and EVERYONE was asking us who the great band was and said it was their best wedding ever,because of the band.
We would HIGHLY recommend to ANYONE considering a band for their wedding that there is really only ONE choice and that is Men In Black!
We could not have been more pleased.
Thank you,thank you,thank you!!!

For June, I had to highlight a wedding band that I had the pleasure of working with recently, as they just stood out from the crowd. My June wedding Vendor of the Month is the Boston band, Men in Black.
Men in Black caught my eye right away as we both set-up for the reception. It was clear to see that this wedding band wanted to perfect each of the special moments that evening, as every instrument had to be precisely tuned for every formal dance. Before the reception started, the band’s leader, Jeff, coordinated with the facility, the photographers and the cinematographers to make sure everyone was on the same page and that doesn’t happen all that often. Jeff emceed the introductions and did a fantastic job getting the crowd rocking early on, as the family, bridal party, and bride and groom entered the tent at Gore Place in Waltham, MA. The dance floor was packed from start to finish with a little band-crowd interaction mixed into the evening to keep the energy at its highest.

What a beautiful wedding Beth and Scott had on Sunday. The weather
was perfect and Brooklawn did a fantastic job with the reception.
However, what put everything over the top was "MEN IN BLACK"......I
have received phone calls and e-mail all weekend long thanking us for
the lovely time....everyone asking "where did you find that band?" I
was happy to pass you name and card along. Thank you so much for
making the reception such fun.....our friends and family danced the
night away!!!! Without a doubt "Men in Black" really know how to
ROCK a wedding reception !!!
Beth and Scott are away this week but when they get home I am sure
they will want to contact you and fill out the review. I just wanted
you to know the Bill and I were just thrilled with everything.
Thanks again Jeff
All the best,

My husband and I were referred to Men in Black by a friend and could not have been happier in our choice using them for our wedding! They were absolutely fantastic!! I am a dancer so the music to me was one of the most important aspects of the wedding and I was completely and utterly impressed not only by the quality of sound but also how the band really tailored the music to our style, really respecting our song choices. The week of the wedding I spoke with the band leader for an hour going over the entire event, he listened to every little detail I wanted and was extremely accommodating, even learning a song for us. There was not one song where someone wasn't on the dance floor. They were a pleasure to work with and so much fun! They even let our uncle get up and sing with them, which was a hoot! Everyone commented on how wonderful they were. I highly recommend this band for any big event they are prompt, professional and most importantly extremely entertaining!!

BEST WEDDING BAND!!
There are not words to express how absolutely amazing the band Men in Black were at my wedding on May 12, 2012 at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA. From the moment I was in contact with Jeff, during our phone conversation the week of the wedding to finalize the details, to seeing his calm, fun, reassuring face right before our announcements on the big day I knew that if my wedding was in his hands it would be unforgettable…and boy was I right! Picking Men in Black as the band for my big day was without a doubt the single best decision for vendors that I had made during my entire wedding process. All of the band members work together so well and truly enjoy playing together, not to mention that they sound incredible. The female vocalist was so talented and they have a great mix of musicians that can all play the best new and old songs and sound SPOT ON! It was like any and every member of the band could play an instrument and also pick up the mic and sing to perfection. The versatility is unlike any wedding band I have ever seen! My favorite moment of the night was our first dance. We choose the song “Everything I do” by Bryan Adam and I am not kidding when my guests asked me if it was a recording because Jeff sounded EXACTLY like the original record, it made that moment so special. There were so many little details that I didn’t expect that made the night perfect…the up-lighting and stage set up they have makes the room shine (my pictures came out so nice), the way they can feel the crowd and choose the perfect songs for all ages to enjoy, and how Jeff is the perfect m.c. and makes the flow of the wedding move right along to the fun stuff! At the end of the night every single one of guests told me it was the most fun wedding they had ever been to and wanted to know the name of my band. This band is the real deal end of story. Who would have thought you could rock out in a museum!? THANK YOU MEN IN BLACK!!

MIB was simply OUTSTANDING and exceeded all of our high expectations! our guests danced the entire night long, and everyone had the time of their lives! We could not have asked for a more talented, fun, professional, and entertaining band at our wedding! they were enthusiastic, energetic, and just FANTASTIC in every way - I am absolutely positive that no better band exists, and I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants their guests to dance like crazy for every minute of the wedding!

May 5, 2012 wedding at Mandarin Oriental Boston
Just wanted to shoot you a quick email in regards to Men in Black and [your agent] David Janis and the excellent job they did for our wedding!
We recently had MIB perform for our wedding 3/31 in Newport and they were amazing! They did EVERYTHING right, from the timing of the songs, to the MC'ing of the event, to making sure everyone was dancing, they kept the party going all night. During the event there was not 1 minute that they were on stage that people were not on the dance floor. The songs that we requested did/did not get played was honored and they strung them together perfectly. They even had several "tricks" that they used to get people dancing that we thought were brilliant. At the end of the night when their set was over the entire wedding started chanting "one more song, one more song". We had never seen anything like it and they did in fact give us a one song encore which really fired up the crowd. We must've had every single person tell us how much fun they had and how much the band rocked! We are so glad that we used them for our wedding and would highly recommend them to anyone else.
That being said we also wanted to thank David Janis. He was extremely professional, very flexible, and most of all understanding through the entire booking process. He made sure that both of us felt very comfortable with everything and was always available to answer any and all questions that we had.
Overall a fantastic experience and we will be sure to recommend the Hank Agency and MIB to friends and family.
Thanks for everything,
Ryan and Lindsay Fullam (March 31, 2012 wedding)
To all who want to have the WEDDING OF A LIFETIME:
The MIB Band was absolutely amazing and truly made our wedding a night to remember for myself, husband, family and friends. We got married 5 months ago and everyone is still talking about the band :)
I would highly recommend them to anyone hosting a function. One of the greatest things they gave my husband and I was the opportunity to be guests at our own wedding! And just in case you're wondering, it is very difficult to let someone you don't know take charge on a day that you have planned for years. I gave them my introductions and they took it perfectly from there. Seriously, not one mistake, not one "awkward wedding moment" ..it was perfect! We did not have to worry about anything but dancing and having an amazing time. They are unbelievably talented, professional, fun, arrived early, sang and performed giving 1000% and kept every last guest dancing! No one sat down at our wedding.
I would be happy to give a personal recommendation to them with my name on it any day. I owe them a huge "thank you" for making our wedding not great...but phenominal.
Thank you!! Thank you!! I wish you all much luck and many, many more happy brides and grooms in the future!

We wanted to thank you and the rest of Men In Black for helping to make our wedding reception incredible. You certainly followed through with your promise to kick ass! We were incredibly impressed by your professionalism, talent, and ability to connect to the audience. You should all take great pride in how happy you make people. We received compliment after compliment from our guests.
We also need to thank Pam for being utterly responsive and helpful throughout the process. In return for the great night you gave us, we would be happy to supply a recommendation for potential clients who are having a tough time making a decision.

Hi Pamela and Tania,
I just wanted to touch base and let you know how much I loved working with the Men in Black Band this last Saturday at the Hotel Viking in Newport.
Being a wedding photographer, I have seen and heard a LOT of wedding bands and these guys were so clearly above and beyond any of the rest!
Because the guests and the bride and groom were having such a blast, it makes the night so much more fun and it really shows up in the pictures, which makes our job so much more fun too! :)
Thanks a million and best of luck to the band!
Lindsey, Lindsey Buchleitner Photography (October 8, 2011 wedding photographer)
I wanted to just send you a quick note to say thank you! You guys were awesome! Despite the hurricane, time changes, floods and hotel evacuations, the wedding was amazing and you guys kept the party going (even at 2 in the afternoon!). The "Come on Irene" song was perfect and my dad said his favorite part of the wedding was when he got to sing 'I love that dirty water'. You really really made it a memorable event. You guys were pleasure to work with and I wish you all of the best moving forward!
Sara and Rob (August 27, 2011 wedding)
Men in Black performed at my daughter's wedding this past weekend and contributed to making this the most fabulous day in my daughter's life. She (Laura Stern) and Danny Shribman, could not have been happier. Please also let us know where to post our comments on line about how fabulous the band was.
Bob Stern, Father of the Bride (June 25, 2011 wedding)
You definitely lived up to your promise! This was the best night of my life and Men In Black definitely was a huge part of the reason. All our friends and family couldn't stop talking about how much fun you made it and how great you guys were. So thank you thank you thank you!!!! And hopefully Eric and I can come see you guys play when we're in Boston next time!!
Stacy (May 14, 2011 wedding)
Men In Black,
Thanks for a great party last night. People have been raving about the band all day and I particularly loved my stint as "the cowbell girl."
I really appreciate it!

These guys rocked. Went to a wedding where they played a couple years ago and they were unbelievable. had them at our wedding this month and people danced before they ate salad and never stopped. Made the wedding GREAT!

Seaport World Trade Center 1/1/11
Thank you for making our wedding amazing !!! The band absolutely made the night and I cannot begin to count how many people said it was the best band they've ever seen, including one of our cousins who is a wedding DJ. I was abit hesitant at first about some of the wedding party involvement and the centerpiece give away but in trusting in you was the wisest thing I did on my wedding day. We have an amazingly funny picture of my mom and dad dancing around the table with a napkin in one hand and a dollar in the other. Absouletly priceless !!!
Thank you also for your flexibility in staying later when our whole time frame got shifted. I was worried it might be wasted time going late and never imagined our dance floor would be packed to the gills at 1 am, but sure enough it was !!!
I can not put into words how wonderful Men In Black was, but in summary you made our wedding perfect !!!
Have a wonderful 2011 !!
Best, Ruth & Derek Levesque
Hey Men in Black,
Patty and I just wanted to drop you this note, to reiterate what a terrific job you all did at our daughter Colleen’s wedding on Saturday, 23 October 2010! You guys should be headliners in Las Vegas! I can tell you, virtually everyone at the wedding commented on what a fantastic band you are and what an unbelievable time all our guests had! We received so many compliments and so many requests for your contact information that you will be booked indefinitely! So I’m sure we will see you all very soon again! In addition, Patty & I were equally pleased with Tania and the Hank Agency!!! Tania was just wonderful!
Thanks again for a great job!
Bob and Patty
Dear Men In Black,
What can we say? It’s been nearly three months since you sang at our daughter’s wedding and people are still talking about the great job you did. There wasn’t anyone who wasn’t out on the dance floor, including the priest who married them! You’re not only great singers, you’re great guys. We can’t thank you enough for making our special day so memorable and so much fun!
Bill and Linda
I cannot emphasize enough how grateful I am to every member of Men in Black for truly making our wedding a special experience for everyone. Not only did every single one of our guests get up and dance, but it was so obvious all were enjoying themselves. I received numerous compliments on the band both during and after the reception. I would not hesitate to hire Men in Black again for a future event.
Chris and Siobhan Pomeroy
Dear Hank Agency and Men In Black WOW !!!!
What can I say ??? I never thought a band could get my husband up dancing, but MIB did !!!! Their energy, timing and performance far exceeded our expectations. We still get emails from our guests asking who our band was because they loved them so much. Word can’t describe there performance just OUTSTANDING !!! Thank you so much MIB. Also a special thanks to Pam for being so wonderful throughout the whole process, and making it possible to book this band, You made our wedding.

I know we spoke after the wedding,but I wanted ta again thank you and the rest of Men In Black for make our wedding so amazing. You completely put it over the top. I received so many compliments on the band, and I can’t tell you how happy both Chris’ and my parents were. I think they were totally shocked by how FABULOUS you were. I’d like to do a review for you, or numerous if you’d like,but I thought I’d ask you where it is most beneficial to post ??? Please feel free to refer any future clients. Really, I can’t express my gratitude enough.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING !!!!
If there is anything I can do ?
Thanks so much for everything.
We just wanted to thank you for the BEST wedding we have ever been to!! We are dad & stepmom to the bride and we could not have been happier with you folks!! You were sooo much fun and got EVERYONE up dancing-even some of the grandparents who NEVER dance were dancing!! All our guests were & still are raving about how much fun you were! You are all so talented-every song was so great!
Thanks Again & we look forward to hearing you again!!
We say this for all of us at the McClosky wedding @ New Seabury Country Club!!

Liz and I wanted to thank you all for making our wedding reception absolutely amazing! Our guests keep telling us that the Men in Black were awesome! The dance floor was literally full from the moment of our first dance to the final song. We cannot thank you enough for such an amazing night.
We highly recommend the Men in Black to anyone who wants to have a FUN wedding!
Jim and Liz
M I B played at our son’s wedding this week end in Rockport, and rock the port is just what they did. A full night of dancing was had by all. These guys are not just a band...THEY ARE ENTERTAINERS!
THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL, FUN FILLED EVENING.
Hey Men In Black!!!
Just wanted to tell you that I can’t wait to someday work another wedding with your band. You guys are the best!!!

Men In Black played at my daughter’s wedding this past weekend and I just want you to know that we LOVED the band. The dance floor was packed all night and everyone had a great time. People were coming up to me all night to tell me that you were the best wedding band that they had ever seen - and you were a pleasure to work with!!!
I wanted to thank Ralph and Crew for such an amazing night. Having never seen Men In Black live before booking, I found it hard to believe that they would get people dancing off the bat (like I was told by so many people). Boy was I surprised !!!! The band was absolutely AMAZING!!! We literally did not stop dancing all night! We had people who NEVER dance, and I mean NEVER,EVER dance, on the dance floor from beginning to end. I can not begin to tell you how many people have come up to me and told me that this is the best band they have ever heard!! All ages were throughly enterained at the wedding, thanks to the amazing range of songs that the band could play! I already know a couple of people that are planning on calling you for their kids wedding!
Please extend my thanks to all the Band Members!!!!
THANK-YOU THANK-YOU THANK-YOU !!!!!

Men in Black provided the music for my sister’s wedding in 2006, where my husband and I first met. When we got engaged the first thing people asked me was...."are you getting Men in Black"? Of course I was, there was no way that we were going to get married without them!
The Band was amazing and got everyone on the dance floor, even those who never dance! We also never left the dance floor and got some great candid’s because of it! The best part was that my husband’s group of friends from home have a song they love to sing and the Band was kind enough to like them borrow the mic- it made the boys night and I really appreciated that!
It’s been 3 months since the day and we are still getting calls on how great they were. Everyone agrees.... they are the best wedding band EVER!
My husband and I are already trying to think of another reason to hire them.
Kristin & Tom Simon
We just want to thank the band for making an already special day freaking awesome! All of our friends and family told us that they have never had more fun at a wedding and it is all because of the band! They had the bridal party up and singing with them including us rocking out to Bon Jovi! They even made the giving away of the center pieces a blast! I never thought I’d see my father in law dance around a table twirling a napkin over his head!
Thanks again for the best time and we cant wait to see you guys again.
Joe and Kristen
I cannot thank you both enough for such an amazing night on our wedding night Oct 24,2009! The music was UNBELIEVABLE!! I can’t even find the right words to express how much fun we had!! We just returned from our Maui honeymoon and people are still calling us to say how WONDERFUL the band was. You played all of the right music to keep everyone on the dance floor. My new husband and I barely left the dance floor and he dosen’t even like to dance!! Just wanted to send you both a quick note to express how happy I was with your service. I would totally recommend you to all my family and friends. You guys were amazing;
Thanks again Nicole Wandy-Now Nicole Shippee (-;
OMG!! I just left the wedding you perfomed at on 11 Nov. 09 and you all were AWESOME!! The groom’s Polish grandmother was a dancing fool and on her way to sit down would start up dancing again! I think the selection of the band was the first thing they decided on when planning the wedding! Do you perform anywhere other than weddings? Around Boston or anything? You put on a great show and the music is incredible! I can’t say enough great things! I would gladly go see you guys (and girl) perform!
Kudos on a job exceptionally done! ;o)
Hello Pam and Men In Black!
I wanted to say how happy we were with our band choice for our September 12, 2009 wedding at Spring Valley Country Club. Men In Black was AMAZING! So many guests came up to us and said how great the band was and asked where we found them. You guys had everyone, young and old, dancing. You knew exactly how to get everyone up and going. A special shout out to your agent Pam. She was so helpful to us from the very beginning to the very end. She promised us you guys would be amazing, and you absolutely were. I would recommend you to anyone; we couldn’t have been happier.
Thanks again for giving us and all our guests a fabulous time!
Hi-I was at the Kosterlitz/Martino wedding Aug 1,2009 at The Wychmere Harbor Club... WOW. Men In Black were great. I mean Truly GREAT. They were the perfect accompaniment for the group of people that were there...the energy level was awesome. Dancing,laughing,singing. Really they were perfect for the day. And the song selection-that took the cake. Is there any way to get a copy of the play list from the wedding ?? I’d like to download all of the songs and put them on a cd for the bride and groom. Thanks again for making the reception so much FUN !!!!
To The Hank Agency;
I am not looking to book the band,I just want to comment on them,and hopefully you can pass it on to the band members. THEY ARE EXCELLENT !!!! I am a guitar player,88 Berklee grad, and I am not really playing anymore,but possibly subing for a friend of mines band, so I was just checking out all the Boston wedding bands online and listeneing to them. I probally listened to at least 10-15 bands before I came across MIB. All the other bands who claim to be Boston’s best bands all sound like a "wedding band"-no soul,bad harmonies actually,too much harmonies and "over-doing it" I was EXTREMELY IMPRESSED with MIB. The lead singer/guitar player is very soulful all the harmonies were AWESOME. The female lead singer kicks ass. Keep up the good work MIB.
You guys ROCK!!
I have been meaning to drop a note in the mail as well, but I wanted to let you know how delighted we were with Men In Black at our wedding on Block Island 6/13/09. They took all of our song suggestions to heart, they played exactly what we wanted to hear-and then some!!! The crowd never stopped dancing - from our flower girls to our grandmothers, it was unbelievable!!! They went above and beyond what we expected. We have an endless stream of compliments saying that ours was the "best wedding I have ever been to" - and I think we have Men In Black to thank for a large portion of that. They were so much fun, they barely took breaks, and they played FOREVER!!! All in all,they rocked. We loved every second of it.
Please pass on our gratitude to Ralph and the band. There are truly no words to say how much fun we had and how much fun everyone had!! Thank you so much for all of your hard work - what a fantastick evening to remember.
Most Sincerely, Amanda & Andy Cobb
This is Nathan Suher with Wedding Reels Video. I recently received a DVD from you which utilized some footage I shot of the band Men In Black last November. I thought you guys did a fantastic job using my footage for their promotional DVD. I really appreciate the exposure. Thank you so much. I will always recommend you guys if any of my clients are interested in your services.
This is long overdue, but I just wanted to say thank you for rocking the house at Cassandra and Steve Schembri’s Wedding. It was exactly what we had anticipated. Our friends and family love you all and still I run into people who attended and they ask Cassandra and Steve to get divorced and do it all over again.
See you at our annual Christmas Party.
Love to all.
Tommy & I just wanted to express again how AMAZING you where at our wedding. Both sides of our families are ALL talking about how much fun we all had last night. We loved how you guys got everyone on the dance floor all night long!!!!!
Words can not express how truly HAPPY we were with how great your made our wedding day! We hope at some point in our future we can use you again because we where speechless and had the time of our life....
Jen & Tommy Tuton
I just photographed a wedding on December 27th. Men In Black performed for over 6 Hours. What a SHOW!. They had the whole place rocking. Could not help but take great photos of the band and how they got the audience involved in the performance. Even I wanted to dance...and I was not drinking (I usually have a two drink minimum before dancing). I would recomend this band for anyone....but only if you want to have FUN!
John B Shanahan
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how AMAZING Men In Black were at the Hard Rock on Friday night! Everyone has been raving and sending me emails to tell me what a great time they had. Men In Black/Me & Julio are by far the absoulute best band that I have seen EVER in and around MA & RI. I have already started referring people,including my brother that is getting married next August. Please pass my thanks on to Jeff and Shannon and the rest of the guys,and plan to see us again next year.
You guys totally ROCK.

Gail I just wanted to tell you how phenomenal Men In Black were! They positively took an already happy group of people to the next level. My daughter Jen and her now husband James, had one main theme they wanted for their wedding - Fun Fun Fun. Well Men In Black helped us achieve that and more. I have had SO MANY COMPLIMENTS on the band. They really tuned in to what we wanted, and were totally focused on making sure we were all having a great time. I want to let you and them know... they succeded completely, and I thank you all very, very much. Anyone considering a band for their wedding (or any other event ) should certainly choose this band. If anyone ever requests a personal referral,please have them contact me and I will be glad to give it. I have already referred a few more girls to your agency. Thanks again and please pass this along to Ralph !!
p.s. One more compliment, the band learned "Everything" by Michael Buble’ for Jen and James first dance... I can’t tell you how great it was... they sounded BETTER than the M Buble’ version. It was just AMAZING !!! What a great band.
Jen and James Doyle
Mike and I wanted to write and thank you and the rest of the band for an INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCE at our wedding reception on August 9th. You guys were absouletly amazing !! You had people dancing all night... our photographer and videographer even stayed longer just to hear Men In Black play, it was unbelievable ... You played a variety of music and found songs that everyone enjoyed. And when we thought the night couldn’t get any better, you invited Mike and I up to sing Bon Jovi with you guys... Just recently seeing the video from that night confirmed just how wonderful of a job you all did !! When I spoke with you the week before our wedding, you promised me our reception was going to rock--and it definitely did !! It’s been almost 2 months since the day, and our guests are still talking about you guys. Men In Black made our reception !!!!! We can’t thank you guys enough.
Please feel free to use us as a reference at any time.
Alison and Michael Pasiner
Wow!! That is all I can say. Everyone has been raving about how amazing MIB was at our wedding! They played our wedding on 9/6/08 at the Royal Sonesta and played to the room size and the crowd perfectly We had a variety of ages at the wedding and everyone loved it. The dance floor was packed all night! Everyone kept asking me where I found them.
One of the things I was worried about was that the band would be too loud, and they were just perfect. They are so skilled at what they do. I am happy to provide a reference anytime!
Suzanne & Todd
WOW!!!!!!! That is all I can say!! We have seen Men In Black at other weddings,that is why we had chosen them for our wedding.... but last night they blew us away!! The band made our entire night! They we courteous,profesional..... and new exactly how to throw an awesome party!! A special thank you to the band for getting Matt up there on stage playing the guitar....and the entire wedding party jamming out!! SO MUCH FUN!!!! Please pass this along to the band Gail and all engaged couples. They were incredible. They made the whole wedding!!!
Mr.& Mrs. Matthew Walls
MEN IN BLACK recently performed at my daughters wedding (July 19, 2008) and were outstanding!! People continue to say how great they were,things like "the best wedding ever, especially the band!". We, the bride and groom in particular,especially liked the end where the band got the bridesmaids,then the groomsmen,lastly the bride and groom,up to sing with the band. The only regret about that was that we thought the party was about over and had let the photographer go. You might suggest that the band advise someone in the wedding party NOT to let photographer go until the band is truly done. What a blast we had. No one is does it better than this band.
Please pass our great thanks and apprecitation on to Ralph and Jeff and the rest of the band,and if you need any references,feel free to include us!!
I am currently back from my honeymoon! just got back last evening and wanted to write and thank you and the rest of the band for an absolute amazing time at my wedding on July 5th. I don’t know how many people came up to me and asked where we found you and that you were the best wedding band they had ever heard! You made the entire evening and day so much better. The wedding band was one of the most important parts for me and you exceeded and surpassed any expectations that I could have had. I feel I could go on forever thanking you as I can not express how overjoyed and happy I was with all of you. Just when I thought you couldn’t find another great song to play you came out with another 10 that people danced to! I never wanted it to end.
Even your break music couldn’t keep people off the dance floor! Honestly people have said this was the best wedding they have been to and I can definitely say that you were probably the main reason for that! Thank you so much again for everything, as well as Tania thank you for helping me in choosing them, you couldn’t have been more right!!! I know my parents have already talked about getting you for my dad’s 60 birthday !! Hopefully I will see you again over the years and please do not hesitate to contact me for any reason.
Thank you for adding in making it the the best day of my life!!!
Anne Palm Mormina
Hey MIB and Pam,
We really can’t thank you guys enough! From the very beginning planning stages Pam and Ralph, you were so much more helpful then I could have even hoped for, and then the actual wedding was AMAZING!!!! You really made our 4th of July wedding so spectacular.
Thank you, Thank you!!!!
Tricia & Sean Breslin
Dear MIB and Pam,
From the first song until the last, your band was completely fantastic. Well, actually, even that is an understatement. We’ve been to our fair share of weddings, and many of our guests too, would be old pros at weddings, thought your band, their performance and professionalism was by and large the best they had ever seen. Sarah and I believe this would more accurately sum up our collective agreement and we would further like to add our own heartfelt testament to your great raving referrals. We are so very pleased with the interactive approach you provided our guests, in a non-intrusive, friendly and uncontrived manner. Guests both young and old had a night they will all remember. We thank you very, very much and please know that we will be recommending your band to all of our friends.
Best wishes and thanks again!!
John & Sarah Barrella
Thank you for another year of great music at the Nashoba Valley Special Olympics fundraiser. Your music selection was perfect, and your sound is tremendous. Always a great event if you are the band.
You were great (again) last night at our fundrasier in Westford. We rasied a lot of money for our group and people really had fun thanks to you. Men in Black is becoming legondary in Westford!
Hey Guys -
To all who want a band for their wedding-hire "Men In Black". They were a blast! I think the highlight of the night was when one of the band members was on the floor with my husband and his ushers spinning on their backs. They are lively, fun, and know just the right music to play to get your guests up on the dance floor. All of our guests had a blast and said it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
Thanks "Men in Black" for making our wedding one for the record books!!!
KRISTEN and JOHN MARCHESE
There is only one way to say this...YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!!
As a result of hiring Men In Black, we can honestly say on behalf of our guests that WE HAD THE BEST WEDDDING,EVER!! It has been over a month since the big day and people are still ranting and raving about the wedding, and most importantly, about the band! The fact that the dance floor was packed all night, including while dinner was served, says it all !! Oh, and I mustin forget to mention the fact that we had an outdoor reception under a tent and the police were called in 3 times to break up the party. But MIB just kept on playing(and they even played a little extra at the end just b/c they were having a great time as well!!) Even the police on there 3rd attempted to stop the party gave up and joined in. It was amazing !!
The band was right on target with judging the musical moods of the guests and you knew exactly which songs everyone wanted to dance to, and in which order they should be played. There alot of copy cat bands out there,but you guys and girl are THE REAL DEAL. You practically brought down the tent when you ended the night with BonJovi’s "Livin On A Prayer"!!
Thank you so much for being such a great and important part of our wedding day. We will HIGHLY recommend you for any and every wedding we hear about.

Hi Pam, Sorry it has taken so long for me to write you but we absolutely LOVED Men In Black. They were amazing!! People continue to comment on how great they were. Our dance floor was packed and they truly rocked the house. I am so happy that we had them and will highly recommend them to EVERYONE I CAN... They were so great to work with and really know what they are doing ,how to get the crowd engaged... just FABULOUS!! My Dad can NOT stop raving about them. He is quite a ham so whenever they gave him a cowbell and had him on stage... he was in love ;;))
He had such a great night and that means the world to me.
Thanks so much for all your help.
After 18 months of planning, our daughters wedding has come and gone. Your suggestion that Men In Black would be the perfect band for a fun and lively wedding was perfect. The music appealed to every age group (our youngest guests were age 7 and our oldest just turned 86). As soon as the first songs began there were people on the dance floor and the dancing never stopped. A completely conservative lawyer friend was on the floor doing the "gator" when the band played "Shout". One of the grooms female classmates grabbed my friends husband for very fast dancing. The guest were relaxed,and mingling with people they had never met before, and having a wonderful time.
The band was incredible. Shannon offered my daughter her own earings when she temporarily lost her own. Ralph told me that the band was the one thing in the wedding planning that I did not have to worry about and he was right. The compliments keep coming in. I have already received a written letter from an out of town groom side guest thanking us for a great time. One of the guests ran into someone from the reception wait staff. The waitress said she has never seen so many people having so much fun at wedding. A friend called yesterday and said the reception was the best one she attended.
The photographer said the minute the band began to play he knew that this was going to be a great reception. He commented how this band is not just going through the motions like every other wedding band he has seen. They genuinely are enthusiastic, and love what they do. After interviewing a few bands on our own we contacted you. You asked a few questions and then suggested that Men In Black was "the" band we were looking for. From the keyboard during cocktail hour to the final dance of the the night, the band was outstanding.
We will be recommending not only Men In Black but also The Hank Agency.
Thank you so much Men In Black and Tania.

We just got back from our honeymoon late Saturday night and I was going through our home voice mail just now and heard your message of well wishes the day before our wedding. Sorry we werent able to get back to you until now,but I wanted to let you know we appreciated the call. But most importantly, that Men In Black was ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL !!!! Yours and others raves about this band were no exaggeration. They are truly the best wedding band on the planet, and it was the best decision we ever made to book them !! Jeff,Ralph,Shannon, and the whole band MADE our reception. Everyone who attended is still talking about how much fun we all had and how Men In Black was honestly the best wedding band they had ever heard. Even the most shy, reserved people were out on the floor with sweat dripping down their necks; the energy was simply contagious! Tim and I have actually remarked that it would have been impossible for people not to dance at our wedding, because even of for some crazy reason people didn’t want to get out there, Jeff and the gang would have physically pulled people onto the dance floor. In fact, my groom himself, Tim, tends to be a quieter guy and they even got him on stage with his groomsmen,and were all singing together with the band and had a total blast doing it.
We just loved the genuine attention they gave to us and our guests. It’s amazing to us that the bands attitude was so fresh, that they made us feel like ours was the first and best wedding they ever played at. They also played the perfect balance and flow of ballads and upbeat dance songs.
We also want to thank Men In Black for doing a FANTASTICK cover of our wedding song, "I Want Everything" by Luna. Not only do we appreciate that they learned it for us for our first dance, but we were amazed at how great it sounded !!! It’s definitely an obscure song that very few people have ever heard before, so we didn’t know what to expect, but we couldn’t imagine it sounding better, It was perfect, Thank you !!!
A huge hug again to Ralph and Jeff and the whole band for making our wedding so AMAZING. They were kind, respectful, friendly, super-upbeat, and super-super talented, and put on an unforgettable show for our wedding. For many reasons, many of our guests have already told us that ours was the best wedding they have ever attened and we know Men In Black was a big reason for that. And thank-you Tania for being a pleasure to work with through out the whole planning process. And I will definitely be more than happy to serve as a reference if you ever need one (though,no doubt you have plenty!!)

What can we say. Men In Black blew us out of the water on our Aug 4, 2007 wedding. We planned our wedding for 16 months and we have to say that the element of a wedding that can truly make or break how much of a success the reception is,is the band. I say that with no hesitation. The band defines the night and Men In Black allowed for our wedding to be one for the memory books. We are STILL talking about it one month later. People told us we couldn’t possibly have chosen a better band. People were calling asking how we found you and wanting to book you for their weddings!!! You all had people dancing before the meal even started until you finished at midnight. The energy level in the room was amazing and you played to all generations. Your level of PROFESSIONALISM and PASSION shows in your music and we still cannot get over how sensational you made our reception. We listened to every band in the metro Boston area and decided on Men In Black because of the energy that you bring to an event. We wanted an elegant city wedding with a band that keeps the night going and you gave us more that we ever could have dreamed of. I want to give you all HUGE hugs for giving us a dream come true night!!!
We could gush about Men In Black for the rest of our lives.
