Showcasing Boston’s most entertaining musicians, CLOSING TIME and our sister bands, MR. BRIGHTSIDE and OCEAN AVENUE, have quickly become three of the most sought after wedding bands on the East Coast. On top of bringing the party to 40+ weddings per year, each band performs weekly to capacity crowds at clubs, colleges, casinos, private parties, and corporate functions ranging from a 5 to 9-piece band. Each show is an unforgettable night of entertainment, featuring the greatest hit songs of yesterday and today.
Our goal is to keep you and your guests dancing and singing along all night long. Every couple is encouraged to help shape the set list and request songs that you would like to hear, along with supplying a do-not play list. Each band member is a seasoned, professional musician, so if there is a song that you would like on your wedding day that is not currently a part of our song list, we would be happy to learn it for you.
Closing Time, Mr. Brightside and Ocean Avenue are available to provide live music for your ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. We offer customizable packages designed to fit any budget.
