The Party Factor should be the only option when it comes to hiring a band for your wedding. They are extremely professional, accommodating, and talented. In our early planning stages, The Party Factor invited us to their showcase where they performed various segments of songs to show the wide range of music they can play. We were instantly hooked as you could clearly see the talent and professionalism. They ended the showcase by answering any and all questions. Leading up to our wedding, we had a few calls with the band leader, Rick, who walked through our timeline and continued to answer all of our questions. On the day of our wedding, a few of the band members played jazz for our cocktail hour, one member emceed the entire event, and the band as a whole absolutely crushed it throughout the rest of the night. The emcee did an outstanding job introducing everyone and kept the night flowing. Most importantly, the dance floor was packed the entire night. The Party Factor does a great job reading the crowd, choosing songs from their expansive song list, and bringing the energy. Several of our recently engaged friends grabbed business cards from the band at the end of the night because they were so impressed. Many others continue to tell us how great the band was as well. From our perspective, it was a huge highlight to our amazing wedding, we couldn't be happier. Skip the DJ and spend the extra money to get The Party Factor, they are 100% worth it.

I can’t say enough great things about The Party Factor! They were the perfect band for our wedding and really kept the dance floor PACKED and the energy going.
We didn’t get to attend one of the band showcases before we booked them since we live in California, but my parents went and immediately told us we had to have The Party Factor at our wedding and they did not disappoint.
Paul and Rick were incredibly easy to work with. Rick takes the time to go through every detail of the day and your timeline before the wedding. On the day of the wedding, the music was incredible and the band was so engaging and fun, with the singers coming out onto the dance floor to work the crowd. They also provided our ceremony music and AV equipment and everything was seamless. The music was perfect and even appealed to some of our older guests who hit the dance floor immediately before the reception even started.
The number one thing people said about our wedding was how amazing and incredible our band was. We can’t thank The Party Factor enough for being part of our day and would 100% hire them again.

WOW! What a great band!
Our daughter and her fiancé chose The Party Factor for their wedding, at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, after hearing them at one of their showcases. Lisa and Danny told me they were a great band but I didn’t realize just how great until the day of the wedding. Rick, the bandleader and drummer, is extremely responsive and easy to work with. The band members are an amazing, well trained, talented group of musicians and singers. We used the keyboard player during the ceremony for classical music, added a sax during the cocktail hour to "jazz it up" and rocked the house with the full band during the reception. They can play it all!! As a very happy mother of the bride, I say if you want a fun, lively wedding, with a professional group of musicians, don’t think twice about hiring The Party Factor!! Lori W.

We loved Party Factor! They had a great energy, got everyone on the dance floor, and interacted with the crowd perfectly. We got so many compliments on the band, one of my friends even told me he's now questioning their decision to hire a DJ for his upcoming wedding after seeing Party Factor at our ours. The band was also flexible to our interests and requests - we have dreamed of a long Horah (Jewish circle dance), and boy did they deliver!
Thanks Party Factor! - Ivy & Ben, June 2019
"The Party Factor absolutely knocked it out of the park for our March 2019 wedding! They typically operate out of the Boston area, but were willing to travel all the way down to Virginia to make our day special. The energy they brought to our event was unmatched and they learned several songs on short notice to make the soundtrack to our wedding absolutely amazing. They provided fun and energetic MC services to our event as well, and made the logistics very easy for us. We originally heard the Party Factor at a friend's wedding and snagged their card to use them for ours. Several guests at our wedding had rave reviews of the band and took their card as well for future events. Would 10/10 recommend these guys and will likely book again!"

We appreciate the top notch performance you and The Party Factor Band gave us at our Annual Company Holiday Party. Despite the challenging audio dynamics of the room the band and quality of music was outstanding! All of the musicians were incredibly talented and the two lead singers were awesome, they kept our group up on the dance floor which is not that easy to do!! Very professional, well dressed, experienced live entertainment that we highly recommend for any event. We will certainly have The Party Factor at the top of our list for next year’s Holiday Party.
Awesome job Thank you!!

We had the Party Factor play for our wedding at the Eagle Mountain House in Jackson New Hampshire on September 22nd, 2018. We are still getting calls from our guests who can't stop raving about the band. A lot of friends have said it was the best wedding they have been to because everyone was up dancing and having a blast! Rick and Paul were awesome to work with and got every little detail we asked for. We can't thank the entire band enough for truly making our wedding such a great success. If you are looking for a great, talented, energetic band for your wedding book The Party Factor. We can't wait visit you guys when playing local in Boston!

We hired the Party Factor Band for our wedding at the Seacoast Science Center on the ocean in Rye, NH. Having never hired a band before, we weren't quite sure of the process, but Paul and Rick were terrific to work with and made it easy for us. The Band looked great, sounded great and really made the Party! Everybody was on the dance floor! They even learned a few songs for us that were not in their repertoire (yet!) We aren't going to get married again, but if you are, you should hire the Party Factor for your Big Day!

The Party Factor performed at our 9/15/18 wedding and they were FANTASTIC. I had listened to the videos online, but being in person was an entirely different experience. Every single guest commented on how amazing the band was. I am just so incredibly glad that we hired The Party Factor. Importantly, Rick was also very easy to work with, and helped make our wedding vision come true. I cannot emphasize enough how amazing The Party Factor is--worth every penny.

The Party Factor was amazing! Our guests have not stopped talking about how great our wedding band was. For our wedding reception, we really prioritized 1 thing: FUN. We invested in our bar and our band and it was 100% the right decision. No one remembers your cake or your center pieces, they remember how much fun they had (or didn't have)! Everyone had an amazing time and danced all night. At times, the reception actually seemed more like a concert- everyone was facing the stage and jumping and singing. People were dancing before dinner even came out... the servers had to wait until the band stopped to bring out the food. The food was a little cold, but no one cared because they just wanted to finish it so they could get back out on the dance floor. The band leader (Rick) was great- easy to communicate with, responsive, learned a few songs for us, incorporated all of our unique requests, and did a great job of emceeing the night and controlling the flow of everything. Praise was coming from all age groups- my 12 year old cousin, our 20-something friends, our 50-something parents and their friends, and our 80+ year old grandparents. If you like to have fun, 10/10 would recommend booking The Party Factor for your wedding!

My wife and I found "The Party Factor" to be just that: the factor that made our wedding a real party! I am an American and my wife is Israeli/Argentinian, so our musical requests were both eclectic and demanding. "The Party Factor" truly rose to the occasion. They learned a few new songs which they performed wonderfully in our wedding party, they had very lively energy and a fun synergy between the players and the vocalists. Numerous guests approached us during the event to say how they loved the band and we really enjoyed their music and performance as well. The band played in our cocktail hour excellent jazz and helped us enliven our ceremony with music as well. Working with Rick Forzese was easy. On the wedding day, Rick was at the venue ahead of time, and ensured that we were on the same page and that he and "The Party Factor" were well coordinated with the other vendors. It was also important to us that the music volumes for the various stages of our wedding were appropriate, and "The Party Factor" delivered, allowing the music to be loud enough to really have a great time dancing as well as permitting conversation for our guests who don't dance. We found "The Party Factor" was easy to work with, a great value, and a very high quality of musical performance. We highly recommend!

We absolutely loved having The Party Factor play at our wedding!! From the beginning, it was so easy to work with Rick, and he was incredibly flexible with last-minute changes. Although planning a wedding can often be stressful, there was literally zero added stress working with Rick and The Party Factor! During the cocktail hour and the reception, the band was amazing! Everyone in the band was clearly having as much fun as our guests were, and there was nonstop high-octane energy flowing during the entire evening. The Party Factor exceeded our high expectations, we would choose them again in a heartbeat and highly recommend them to anyone else.

The first thing everyone seemed to say was congratulations, immediately followed by “this band is amazing!” You guys really made the night exceptionally awesome for us! Thank you for everything and we will be sure to recommend you guys to anyone and everyone in the future. Please give my best to everyone in the band and be sure to thank them all for us. Thank you also for working with my sisters - that was a total surprise that I don’t think I’ll ever get over - thank you for helping them!

"The Party Factor was the highlight of our wedding. People still are talking about them. They catered to young and old, had literally everyone dancing, and they might have had an even better time than we did. Rick was a breeze in the planning process, totally flexible even up to the day of the wedding. There was such enthusiasm, and SO much talent, it's hard to fail with that combination. I'd recommend the Party Factor to anyone."

Thank you again for the great music and the incredible time at our wedding! Sarah and I had so much fun dancing the night away with The Party Factor, it was just perfect! We received so many compliments that night and after about the band and we really appreciate all the work you put into making the celebration so special for us and all our guests.

I have been wanting to touch base with you and say how much we appreciated the opportunity to have your band play at daughter No. 2 wedding (Rae and her new husband Silas Robinson). Rick, you and the band went above and beyond making Rae and Silas' big day one to remember.
We have gotten some great pictures from Wedding No.1 - 07/07/17 and can't wait to see those from R+S day. Again - we had so many compliments regarding your talented group. We tell everyone we know, Need a band? get the Party Factor.
My wife and I first saw the Party Factor at a friends wedding back in 2016 and knew we had to have them for our own in August 2017. They were so easy to work with throughout the planning process. They took our requests without any questions, including an original song my father wrote and played at his own wedding! On the day of the reception they were on time, organized, and excited to play. They nailed all of our requests, including our first dance, “God Only Knows” by the Beach Boys, which is not an easy song to pull off. Their lead singers were phenomenal, both as performers and entertainers. Party Factor had the entire dance floor packed with people, who stayed dancing until the end of the night. Party Factor really made our reception and we were overjoyed to share our special day with them!

On behalf of Andrew and myself I want to thank you and the entire band for the most incredible and unforgettable experience! We absolutely loved every second of music that was provided. You guys are absolutely fantastic. So many of our guests have been raving about you and how they had the best time dancing. Andy and I agree that you and the rest of the band members are the reason why our wedding was absolutely perfect and a dream come true! Thank you for going above and beyond the entire night. The memory of us singing on our wedding night will last a lifetime. Please know that The Party Factor is and will always be our favorite band!

The Party Factor was the best wedding decision we made! A fun and talented band was at the top of our wedding priority list, and you guys by far exceeded our expectations. From day 1 it was very easy to work with Paul and Rick. Providing the ceremony and cocktail hour music was an added bonus and saved us the time/energy of finding that separately. Not to mention the music was beautiful. It was great having the band emcee the evening, and our guests were absolutely blown away during the reception. The musicians are extremely talented, have a wide range and great energy. The dance floor was full all night, even by people who “never dance.” Everyone loved interacting with the lead singers on the dance floor. And you were so accommodating with our special requests. Weeks later, we continue to get many compliments on our choice of wedding band. Thank you for making our special day so memorable. If you are looking for a band, look no further!

I want you to know that Ryan and I are SO grateful to your entire band for making our wedding so memorable! I can't even begin to tell you how many people have told us how great they thought you guys were! Just about everyone's comments have been 'what a fun wedding - that band was AMAZING!'. You guys seriously ROCKED and really did set the tone for a fun fun party that's exactly what we wanted. I can't say enough WONDERFUL things about the Party Factor, we are forever grateful to you. We're so glad that we extended the reception as well because I could have danced the night away for many many more hours with you all playing!

Dancing to The Party Factor with our family and friends was the highlight of the wedding and we highly recommend them - if you are looking for a wedding band book them now!

The Party Factor was the perfect band for our wedding reception. They are extremely talented performers who kept our dance floor packed for the entire night. They even came out on the dance floor themselves at times to encourage crowd participation! Several of our guests came up to me throughout the night to tell me that The Party Factor was the best band they’ve seen at a wedding and I couldn’t agree more. Not only was the quality of their performance fantastic, but they were very easy to work with and very accommodating to our requests (including an encore last song at the end of the night). We would highly recommend booking The Party Factor for your wedding. You won’t be disappointed!

If you want great talent, all your guests on the dance floor, and the perfect soundtrack for your wedding - hire The Party Factor! After seeing them perform at a showcase, we knew they were great. However, they still blew us away the night of our wedding. After the last song played every guest chanted "One More Song!" and of course, The Party Factor played one more. We've been to a lot of weddings but have never seen that happen! Our guests are still telling us how amazing our band was. Thank you Party Factor for making our special day even more perfect!!!

Jaclyn and I would like to extend our Thanks for the awesome music you provided us with for our wedding. Everyone was so excited and pumped up while you were playing. We were so happy to have you play for us. Thank you for providing us with such a great soundtrack to our party. Everything went so smooth and to plan. We will be sure to tell our friends about the Party Factor and your Party Attitude! Thank you for everything.
I hope all is well. I just wanted to send a note to say a huge thank you to The Party Factor for performing at our wedding in September. They were amazing and kept everyone dancing all night and even joined some of guests out on the dance floor during a couple songs. Working with the band leader, Rick, was a breeze, he took time to get all the details down prior to the wedding. I felt like I didn't need to worry about it during the night which, for a bride, is a really good thing! They were willing to learn a couple songs that we requested for both our first dance and for partying later in the night, which was much appreciated. They also played a really great mix of songs through out the night to appeal to all ages. Our guests could not stop talking about how great they were and how much fun they had. We would definitely and VERY highly recommend them to anyone!Thanks again!!
The Party Factor came through with very short notice for my parent’s surprise 60th birthday party. I had some expectations for the professionalism, energy and talent for any potential band. To say The Party Factor exceeded my expectations is such an understatement. It’s impossible to escape the rhythm and energy that The Party Factor brings. Our dance floor was packed and I’d be shocked if these guys didn’t run out of business cards. All night everyone wanted to know how we found this band. They showed up early and were extremely friendly and professional. Can’t say enough good things. If you want a fun, high energy band that plays a mix of music and makes it impossible to stay still, without a question this is the band. We’ve actually started coming up with other party ideas as an excuse to have them back!”
Thank you The Party Factor!
