Packed Dance Floors
We are willing to lay it on the line and offer you our personal guarantee that at a Men in Black wedding, the dance floor is never… repeat… NEVER empty after dinner! This is our primary objective at each event!
The band is known for placing the right song at the right time with no “dead air” in between to keep the party rolling. The energy ramps up and intensifies throughout the show right up to the very last song. Most of our weddings end with that familiar chant “one more song… One more song” We love it!
Quality Sound & Lighting
The band arrives to every show equipped with a top notch sound system that is tuned precisely for punch and clarity. The band’s production also includes professional LED stage lighting which is controlled from the stage.
Men In Black was founded in the late 90’s and has performed at over a thousand weddings over the past couple decades. You can take your chances on a newbie band and perhaps save a few bucks at the risk of clearing the room when it’s time to party, or you can put your wedding music in the hands of an experienced professional wedding band and rest easy in knowing that your wedding will be run to perfection.
Your Wedding Song
The band will perform the bride and groom’s first dance song live or if you particularly favor the original recording, the song can be played via Mp3. It’s your choice. If your first dance song is not on the band’s current song list, Men In Black can learn your special song at no extra charge.
We love to know what YOU want to hear on your wedding day so we can put together a game plan of mixing the Bride and Groom’s requests in with our guaranteed dance floor fillers. Every band has their “go to” songs that they perform well and can move the audience with, but we feel it’s very important customize as much as possible.
We’ve been asked on numerous occasions if we offer a band/DJ combo. This can be done, but we feel that it is unnecessary because our breaks are so short. Instead, we have pre-mixed playlists that we play between live sets. These playlists can be customized if there is a song that you love and it is not on our song list. Best of all, our virtual Djay won’t cost you a dime cuz it’s FREE!
Variety of Wedding Music
The band is extremely versatile and the song list includes over 300 songs to choose from. At every event, the band is sure to take the audience on a musical journey through the decades touching upon all genres, styles, and musical tastes throughout the night. We are always engaging with our audience, while at the same time not making it “about us” and the band stays in tune with the crowd throughout the dance party, and always aims to “leave ‘em wanting more” at the end of the event.
All over New England
MIB is primarily a Boston Band, but we will travel all over New England. Men In Black performs on a regular basis in Newport Rhode Island, Connecticut, Cape Cod Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine.
Men in Black has performed at hundreds of weddings and can offer great insight on some wedding dos and don'ts While the band does not claim to be a “wedding planning” service officially, we can help guide you in the beginning stages of your wedding plan and help you to get the most out of your wedding reception and help you avoid some of the time killing pitfalls helping you to achieve your musical vision of the Big Day!
Also a Boston Cover Band
When Men in Black is not performing at a wedding or function, we fill the openings with a club shows in and around Boston. Why is this important? First of all it gives clients a chance to view the band in front of a real audience. It also keeps the band in tune because we are out playing every single weekend while some of the lesser booked bands may a have months between shows.
We also like to test out new songs in a non-wedding environment and get a feel for what songs work before putting them in our wedding sets.
The Wedding Singer
Jeff Fraser, the band leader, has been into music most of his life starting on piano at the age of 5, he had a knack for picking up melodies by ear right away. Jeff switched to guitar at the age of 12 and began vocal lessons at 16 practicing daily. After high school he attended the prestigious “Berklee College of Music” where he fine tuned all aspects of his craft. Jeff has been doing music for a living for over 20 years and has performed thousands of shows at clubs, private parties, weddings and events.
