About Us

Showcasing Boston’s most entertaining musicians, CLOSING TIME is quickly becoming one of the most sought after wedding bands on the East Coast. On top of bringing the party to 40+ weddings per year, the 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 all the greatest hit songs of yesterday and today.

Band Leader Ryan Engebretson and our representatives at Murray Hill Talent are with you every step of the way, from your first phone call to performing on your special day. 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 member of Closing Time 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.

Our goal is to help make your wedding day flow as smoothly as possible and to keep you and your guests dancing and singing along all night long. Our musicians are available to provide live music for your ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. We offer customizable packages designed to fit any wedding entertainment budget.


Ceremony: Closing Time offers three live music packages for the ceremony: instrumental acoustic guitar, instrumental piano, or instrumental acoustic guitar & piano duo. We also offer DJ services, wireless microphones for the officiant and readers, a sound system so that everything can be heard clearly, and a sound engineer for seamless production.

Cocktail Hour: Closing Time also offers nine live music package for the cocktail hour: instrumental acoustic guitar, acoustic guitar with vocals, instrumental piano, acoustic guitar with vocals duo, acoustic guitar with vocals and percussion duo, instrumental acoustic guitar and piano duo, instrumental saxophone and piano duo, or an instrumental saxophone, guitar, and piano trio. In addition, the band is also available to provide DJ services.

Dinner: Closing Time's full band performs a fun and relaxing selection of music at a low volume, ranging from Frank Sinatra and Elton John to Alicia Keys and Ed Sheeran, while you and your guests chat and enjoy your meals.

Dancing: This is where the party REALLY gets started! Closing Time provides you with the most entertaining and diverse dance sets, including songs from the past 60 years that have proven to be huge “dance floor fillers” and “crowd pleasers”. We are flexible in size, performing as anything from a 5 to 9-piece band. Closing Time's most popular option is the 7-piece band, featuring male and female lead vocals, trumpet, alto and tenor saxophone, acoustic and electric guitar, keyboard/piano, bass, and drums; this option allows the band to perform every song from our extensive song list. Additional vocalists and instrumentalists can be added to the band by request. DJ services are also provided between sets at no additional charge.

As a bride and groom who were absolutely set on booking a DJ, we opted to check out some bands at the request of our family members. Needless to say, we could not have been happier with Closing Time. Not only are they amazing musically, they're stellar performers - we got our wedding pictures back and the dance floor was absolutely packed the entire time with every age range of guest - all thanks to Closing Time.
