I highly recommend The Belltones. The music was fantastic, and the Band really got my wedding guests out on the dance floor! Plus, their primary contact, George Farrell, was extremely easy to work with and patient with my lack of experience hiring a band. During the evening, several people came up to me to say they thought The Belltones were great.

They were great. Per our request, they selected songs based on the vibe of the party and kept the guests dancing until the end. Very professional. Several guests asked for their name and information.

Crisp, musical, swinging but not too loud; if you are a jazz lover, and would rather dance to a Jobim song or a Fats Waller song than to heavy metal, this is the band for you.

George and the band are 5 star all the way. They were on time, prepared, polished and excellent performers. I used them for my wife's 40th birthday party. They were great in working with me on the type of arrangement I wanted for the function as well as accommodating the various starts and stops with toasts and speeches. Everyone commented on how much of a difference this band made to the event and the evening. Booking a band can be stressful as you don’t really know what you are getting. These guys exceeded my expectations, set your mind at ease and go with the Belltones and you won’t be disappointed.

The Belltones were fantastic! We threw a surprise 40th wedding anniversary party for my husband's parents and were looking for a jazz band that would play music well suited for a Sunday brunch party. The Belltones were perfect and exceeded our expectations. All 80 guests commented on how wonderful they were. The music was classy and enjoyable to listen too and the band members were very professional. We would highly recommend them and look forward to hiring them again to perform at a future event. Thank you Belltones. You made our party perfect! Carrie Sullivan, Cohasset

Every aspect of working with the Belltones was a delight from arranging details and planning with George to interactiving with all band memebers on the night of the event, to the amazing voice, poise, and talent of Dane Vanetter. Other band members were most talented and accomodatating. Pianist, Steve Hunt, was able to accompanying a party guest on the piano. The band had a wide range of songs. All the guests were roused to their feet and danced. Compliments are streaming in for the great time.

They were great. Because of the weather a lot of our guests left early. But the ones who stayed, danced the night away. Thank you. We had a great time
