New England Live Wedding Bands
A mix of Jazz, Swing, Blues, R&B, Soul, Motown and Rock & Roll
The O-Tones have been playing weddings since 1990, love the music they play, and it shows! They can provide a variety of ceremony music, lush background music for cocktail hour, beautiful & soft music for dinnertime, and then get your guests out on the dance floor with their compelling groove and harmonies. With three singers, whether singing lovely harmonies on 1940s ballads and standards or great backup vocals on the Soul and Motown hits, your guests aren’t going to be able to sit still! The O-Tones, the best in New England Live Wedding Bands, have many happy clients to recommend them, and their music appeals to all ages with its beautiful melody and great rhythm.
“I have listened to, danced to, and worked with the O-Tones for a very long time. They have played at several swing dances I’ve attended, played at my wedding, and played at several events over the years. The O-Tones played some of my personal favorites and also catered to my guests. It was a fabulous time with dancing, easy listening, and a lot of celebrating!Exquisite vocals—hot harmony, jazzy sax, and sassy tunes make for a dancers dream. Lots of opportunities to “shine” on the dance floor! The O-Tones have been around for a while—and there is good reason for their continued success and demand throughout the Northeast and beyond.”– Repeat client: Wedding 1995, Party 2013

The O-Tones were perfect

It couldn’t have been easier to work with Mary and the O-Tones. All the negotiations regarding set list, timing, price were straightforward and painless. We were so happy to have live music at our wedding. Our guests loved them. Their show(wo)manship was just right for our setting and guests. They are wonderful musicians, Mary has a gorgeous voice, and having them really added such a special, memorable aspect to our wedding. We are a two woman couple and were completely respected; working with the O-Tones was comfortable. I imagine they can work with any couple, regardless of race, religion (or lack thereof), creed, or gender composition. They are smart, caring, honest, fun people! There was not one thing that could’ve gone better. We feel so fortunate that this worked for us. Thank you Mary and the O-Tones!

We hired the O-Tones for our wedding celebration, and in fact we hired them before we even had a venue! Our band contact, Mary Witt, went above and beyond, helping us with her knowledge of local venues and caterers in Western Mass. The band played a perfect mix of swing, jazz, and Motown. The guests were delighted to dance and all had great compliments for the band. The O-Tones were incredibly easy to work with, their sound was beautiful, and I would absolutely recommend them.

Withstanding the Test of Time and Bringing the Beauty of the Past, to Us My partner and I felt The O-Tones was the best choice for our commitment ceremony, with Mary Witt making it easy to contact and make arrangements. Their mix of Jazz, R&B, Swing, Rock and Motown was perfect for our multi-generational guests. At times it was like stepping out of 21st century and sliding into the 1930’s through to the 50’s and present day, leaving our guests with a number of favorite genres to get on their feet and dance to. We were so pleased with the sound, the arrangement, and energy level that they had and brought out in our quests. Mary appreciated that we were having a black tie event and beautifully/handsomely blended into the lovely setting at The Amherst Women’s Club. We have since seen The O-Tones play in other venues and continue to enjoy their sound, music, style and energy. You will be pleasantly surprised with The O-Tones and pleased with your guests’ reaction.

We hired Mary Witt & the O-tones for our daughter’s wedding. There wasn’t a stiil foot or a frown among the 180 assembled – they were everything we hoped they’d be and more. HIRE THEM!
Great Swing/Motown/Dance band

Good live music powers the kind of party that I want to throw. The O-Tones played our wedding party in 2014. We are serious dancers and trad musicians, and booked the band first, before anything else. We wanted something the whole family would enjoy, not just swing and motown but some songs in waltz time, and Beatles to keep the British side happy. The O-Tones delivered admirably, fine musicians that they are, and were the lynchpin of a great party. Us and our guests were dancing for hours. Mary Witt was also a huge help with logistics. She recommended the venue and caterer that we used, very happily. The band brought the sound system and operated it flawlessly including for the speeches. They were perfectly pleasant and professional; we’ve remained facebook friends with Mary.

The O-Tones knew that we had invited a mix of swing dancers and non-swing dancers to our wedding, as well as people of all ages. Over the course of the reception, they played just the right mix of music to get most everyone up and dancing! Even those who didn’t dance commented on enjoying the music. Though it was quite a few years ago, now, I remember the dancing part of the reception most of all. Mary Witt was open to all of our questions and suggestions, then at the reception we were free to relax and enjoy. I can’t recommend this talented group of musicians highly enough. They added an additional level of bliss to an already fantastic day!
