About Us

Brides and Grooms of New England! Are you ready to make your dream wedding a reality? Do you want a party your guests will rave about for years to come? Closing Time is ready to make that happen with legendary live music & DJ services for your ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing.

Closing Time offers three high-energy wedding bands: Closing Time (Boston), Closing Time (New England), and Closing Time (Northeast). Each band is flexible in size, ranging from 5 to 9 musicians. Our popular 9-piece option features: male and female lead vocals, guitar, keyboard, bass, drums and a 3-piece horn section (tenor sax, trumpet and trombone). All three groups are overseen by Band Manager Ryan Engebretson and our incredible team at Murray Hill Talent.

Our goal is to keep you and your guests dancing and singing along all night. Every couple is encouraged to help shape the set list by requesting songs that you want to hear and supplying a do-not play list. Each band member is a seasoned, professional musician, so if there is a song that you would like to hear on your wedding day that is not currently a part of our song list, we would be happy to learn it for you.

Our bands perform regularly at wedding venues across Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and New York. On top of bringing the party to 40+ weddings per year, each band performs weekly to capacity crowds at clubs, colleges, casinos, private events, and corporate functions. Every show is an unforgettable night of entertainment, featuring the greatest hit songs of yesterday and today.


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: We offer nine live music packages for the cocktail hour: instrumental acoustic guitar, acoustic guitar with vocals, instrumental piano, two acoustic guitars with vocals duo, acoustic guitar with vocals and percussion duo, instrumental acoustic guitar and piano duo, instrumental saxophone and piano jazz duo, or an instrumental saxophone, piano and drums jazz trio. In addition, the band is also available to provide DJ services.

Dinner: The full band performs a fun and relaxing selection of music at a low volume while you and your guests enjoy your meals, ranging from Classic Hits by Frank Sinatra, Elton John and Van Morrison to Current Hits by Alicia Keys, Chris Stapleton and Ed Sheeran.

Dancing: This is where the party REALLY gets started! Closing Time provides you with upbeat and diverse dance sets, including hit songs from the past 60 years that have proven to be huge “dance floor fillers” and “crowd pleasers”. Our set list includes Current Hits by Lizzo, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars, ‘80s & ‘90s Hits by Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Montell Jordan and Whitney Houston, Classic Hits by Stevie Wonder, Jackson 5, Aretha Franklin and Earth, Wind & Fire and the list goes on. We customize our playlist to fit your musical preferences! MC and DJ services are provided throughout your reception at no additional charge as well.

  • Oh my goodness, I don't even know where to begin except to say - BOOK CLOSING TIME NOW! Ryan and the rest of the band members were without a doubt, the best part of our wedding. 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. As a bride and groom who were anxious about logistics leading up to the wedding day, Ryan was always there to help. His calm demeanor and ability to make light of any situation was such a comfort to us. Additionally, they're simply just great people. My father-in-law was ill during our reception and needed to go rest, meaning we had to do a quick shift in the schedule and move up some key events. Ryan ... Read more
