Mark was great! He was flexible prior to the event and worked closely with our nonprofit to provide exactly the service we needed free from extras that could have run up our price. He was friendly and professional and on time the day of the event we would definitely hire him again for an event like this in the futur!! Thanks Mark!

I'm an adult student. David has been working with me since 2009. He's amazing. He has me playing songs I never thought I'd be able to play. He has a real knack for getting to the heart of the matter when it comes to musical expression on the guitar. He's great. Hire him!

We met with Tom about a year before our wedding and knew within minutes that we wanted to hire him. We had complete confidence in his abilities. Tom is extremely talented, charismatic, and professional. He respectfully made suggestions while prioritizing our vision. The live music adds a whole new dimension to any event. We had a pretty diverse guest list and Tom kept everyone happy. Not only did our guests compliment his performance, but other vendors did as well.

Mike was an excellent DJ and MC at my 40th birthday dance party in Franklin, MA. He accommodated all of my music and scheduling requests, and charged a reasonable price. Many of my guests complimented him during and after the party. If I were to hire a DJ in the future, I would certainly contact Mike.

What an amazing night we had listening to the wonderful songs so elegantly played by the band and sung by this incredibly talented artist Gabriela Martina. I would recommend that you hire this band immediately for your event!!! I listened to many demo tracks from local arts for our corporate event in Boston and Gabriela and her band members stood out immediately. They were the perfect choice. Throughout my time dealing with Gabriela, her professionalism and response time were fantastic and was so easy to work with. Our guests were extremely complimentary of the band’s talent and song selection. This group has a bright future!

I hired Joe from JCP Entertainment to play my wedding Cocktail hour. He was amazing! Joe played all types of music from Bob Marley, Frank Sinatra, Dave Matthews Band, and classic love songs. Everyone was raving about him. Even my uncle, who is also a musician, and picky, loved him! I can't wait to hire him for another event.

I literally have no words on how amazing this band is! It was a lucky last minute hire and we totally slacked on getting our homework to them on time but they pulled it out! So nice and responsive. With our lack of direction on how to have the reception flow Paul guided us through and it was great! My guests commented a week later to say they had finally recovered from all the dancing! From my 'I need to hear one u2 song one Elton john song and one Bryan Adams song' managed to play during their break a playlist with them on it including my favorite U2 song! Seriously hire them. Like amazing. I want to have a party with them at it every year. All we could ask for and more

I loved everything about having Loving Cup as the band for my wedding. Working with Colleen was such a pleasure. I am not a very organized person and she took care of everything. I felt like every little detail was completely taken care of. Details I would never even of thought of. I felt completely at ease with Colleen taking care of everything. My wedding even started super late and many guests don't even remember it not starting on time because the band handled everything so well and everything transitioned so smoothly. She really understood my husband and myself, what we liked, and our style. The music was perfect! We loved our wedding but the highlight for us and our guests was Loving Cup. A year later people still talk about the music at our wedding and that it was still the best wedding they have been to, primarily because of the music. I look forward to the day I have an event that warrants me hiring a band again. I would hire Loving Cup again and again. There is not a better band out there to hire for your event because they are extremely talented, sound amazingly great, are super organized, and completely care about making your experience what you have hoped it to be.

We have known Dennis Shafer for almost two years, in that time he has taught my now 10 year old son to play the clarinet and more recently the saxophone. He also managed and led a small group of students to form a band; all of which were beginners in their instruments. Dennis is a fantastic teacher, he is passionate and enthused and very much an inspiration for my son. His lessons are fun and he introduces different types of music. Thomas has developed well with Dennis and accomplished much. I would highly recommend him to others.

Dave Hines is an excellent, talented musician. I have had the opportunity to hear him on several occasions, and he has also played for me. He is the consummate professional, an accomplished musician, with an extensive repertoire. Ether as a solo musician or, with a band, Dave Hines will not disappoint!

We absolutely loved Java Jive. We were so lucky to have them at our wedding! They were so flexible and learned a number of new songs for us. The customer service and care was as if we were their only customer. Throughout the planning process they were incredibly responsive and flexible (as our ideas about the wedding music changed). They walked us through the whole process identifying things we hadn't even thought of. They had played at our venue, the Popponesset Inn a number of times and knew just exactly what we needed for setup and for best sound quality. Java Jive is also so affordable in comparison to other wedding bands. By far the absolute best value and price that we could find, yet the quality of their music was outstanding. We totally love this band and have recommended them to everyone!

About

Talented individual artists have united to form one of the most sought-after bands around. This gives our clients the benefit of both male and female vocalists, resulting in high versatility. The end result: high energy performance and pure entertainment. In addition to vocalists, the band’s foundation is comprised of keyboards, bass, guitar, drums and a horn section (upon request). Ceremonial music, cocktail hour music, emcee, etc. are also available. Experience counts! With more than 15 years of performing experience, one of the most important factors the band knows to be important is that weddings and other events require correct song selection in order to create the right atmosphere. The Pulse Of Boston’s variety of music covers every genre and period, from the 50s to the present. This, along with the ability to “read” an audience, helps to set the mood for the perfect event. The band specializes in connecting with the audience and creating a “personal touch” with the crowds at every event. We “guarantee” satisfaction, and we will keep you and your guests entertained and on the dance floor! The Pulse Of Boston is voted 2010 and 2011 “Best Of Bands” by The Knot Wedding Magazine.

About

Transcending the boundaries of genre, Insigniya has hit the ground running since the band’s start in January 2009. Taking influence from a vast range of musicians, Insigniya has been breaking down barriers in creating original music that cannot be classified simply as jazz, rock, or funk. Insigniya is centered on the concept of channeling a special energy through an audience, creating a feeling of freedom and self empowerment, while giving people sounds to bob their heads and move their bodies to. This energy is found full force at shows, and getting it recorded is the ultimate goal when the band is in the studio. With a constantly growing loyal fan base, Insigniya is attracting more and more people to shows, each providing a senses-saturating experience full of high energy. In their third year, the band is unleashing their unique electro-funk-jazz sonic explorations throughout the northeast, having performed at venues, such as The Middle East Downstairs (Boston), Nectar's (Burlington, VT), Sullivan Hall (NYC), and Cafe Campus (Montreal, QC). In Summer 2011, the group made their debut on the festival circuit, performing at festivals, such as StrangeCreek & Wormtown (MA), Disc Jam (MA), Camp Coldbrook (MA), The Big Up (NY), Liberate (VT), Bella Terra (NY), Evolvefest (NJ), Heads In Harmony (ME), Magnetic Gathering (NH), and Lesphestival (NY). Insigniya is ever-increasingly devoted to creating a unique music that pushes the envelope in all genres, while sharing a collective love for music, positive progression, and good times with the masses.

About

We’d love to provide fun music for your wedding celebration! We have been fortunate enough to play live, acoustic music (bluegrass, swing, roots music, old time) at numerous weddings throughout New England since 2006. In regards to music for the big day, we have found that the following formula works well for most folks: * Half an hour of mellow acoustic “seating” music prior to ceremony Processional and postlude (MP3 samples are here on our website) * 45 minutes of acoustic music amongst your guests during the cocktail reception * Fun dancing music after dinner for the reception You can use our PA for toasts and announcements. We also encourage folks to make an iPod mix of music to play during dinner, and fun dancing after we perform. (You and your friends might also love Prince of Hip Hop, or have some special songs you’d like to dance for another 30-45 minutes before the night ends!) We’d be happy to answer any questions you may have, and we provide a cost estimate. We typically book/quote events six to eight months in advance, so if you would like to secure your date, please get in touch! Also, please visit our web pages with wedding ideas specifically for Boston, on the Cape and the North Shore.
