Hi Donna!

It's great to hear from you! I hope the band had a great time and enjoyed their dinners! Abby and I can tell you that the band earned their stars and then some! They were absolutely fantastic. The ceremony was great, the reception was great and we couldn't believe how awesome "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree" was when they performed it for our introductions. All of the guests at our wedding commented on how awesome the band was and how great the music selection was. There's just not enough nice things to say!! I honestly think if folks could hear them play regularly at a venue they would draw quite a crowd.

Abby and I cannot thank you enough for helping make our special day really magical and for working so hard in the last couple of weeks to arrange for the trumpet player and keyboardist to play the ceremony. We were so happy with the way the band fit with our wedding and how well they connected with our guests.

As for Abby and I, we are not on honeymoon until later this year, probably after Christmas. So if there's anything you need from us, please feel free to reach out. We're more than happy to give our recommendation to you and Rare Form!

With warm regards,

Peter & Abby

Donna,

Just wanted to say THANK YOU to you and the entire RARE FORM family. Our wedding was all that we had dreamed of...and the music was an essential part of it. If I had one, I had over a hundred compliments about the music. Each band member was a delight.

It was a pleasure to work with all of you. Thank you for contributing to the wedding we had always imagined. Continued success...

Best Wedding Band Ever, Hands Down!!

I have had the pleasure of experiencing Rare Form Band live on two separate occasions and they are truly the best wedding band I have ever heard. Not only were they part of my sister's wedding day, but they made the trip to CT recently for my wedding. I have never received so many compliments as I did on their performance and they are just phenomenal. I can guarantee you, no one will be sitting down if Rare Form band is performing- as this was our experience both times! Thanks to Gene and Donna for making our day the most amazing possible.

Dear Donna,

Thank you-thank you-thank you and Rare Form for making our wedding an incredible event that we will forever remember. Rare Form and their music transformed the wedding reception from a party into a forever memory. The music was simply incredible! All the band members were so lovely and truly a pleasure to work with. Their upbeat, fun personalities were infectious - all our of guests commented on what a fun evening it was!

My husband and I were beyond impressed; we have already given out your contact information too many times to count. We are so grateful and will forever remember how lucky we were to start our first night as husband and wife with such wonderful music!

Best,

Danielle & Brendan Loughlin

Hi Donna & Band,

When it came time for our middle daughter Janelle's wedding we had no idea where or when we would have the wedding...so many decisions to make with photographer, florist, etc, etc . THE ONE THING WE DIDN'T HAVE TO EVEN THINK TWICE ABOUT WAS WHAT BAND WE WOULD HIRE!! RARE FORM was OUTSTANDING at our first daughter Jena's wedding!!

Our guests are still talking about the DiCarlo/Lepore wedding 2 1/2 yrs later we are still hearing from guests "that was the best band ever, we had so much fun at your wedding!!!!! "

Thank you RARE FORM, we can't wait to enjoy your unbelievable talent once again!

P.S. Did I forget to mention we have one more daughter who already agrees RARE FORM will be at her wedding someday too?

Maria & Joe DiCarlo

Hi Donna,

I wanted to shoot you a quick thank you note as a follow up to our wedding this past Saturday Aug. 18 at Gibbet Hill. Rare Form was absolutely spectacular. The songs, genres and timing of everything could not have been more on point with what Jane and I were hoping for. In fact, the band (and how good they were) was probably the compliment that Jane and I received the most frequently the next day, from both our friends and my parents'generation. I promise to proactively recommend Rare Form to any friends of mine who will be getting married in the New England area in the future.

You really did the most amazing job and I can't thank you enough for creating such a perfect atmosphere for our wedding reception. Everyone had such a great time and I know that the primary reason for that was the band.

Thank you again so much.

Best,

Pete

Donna,

I cannot begin to tell you what an incredible band that Rare Form is and to thank them for making my daughter's wedding day an even more special day. I could not have been any more pleased with their performance. Awesome, Fabulous, Fantastic, Outstanding, The best band ever were just some of the comments that our guest expressed throughout the evening of my daughter's and new son-in-law's reception at The Granite Rose. Our guest were dancing all night long. Everyone from the youngest (14 years old) to the oldest (83 years old) was up on the dance floor dancing together. There was no generation gap that night. The dance floor was packed all night. The band did a great job reading our guest.

Rare Form is magnificent. Their vocals are amazing and their sound is clean, clear and powerful. They are true professionals. One guest commented to me, "You hit a home run with this band, from the very first song to the last song, they are amazing".

They also helped to make my very special tribute to my daughter one that will be remembered for the ages. I would highly recommend Rare Form to anyone. If music is an important element to any future bride and grooms special day, then they need to hire Rare Form.

A Very Happy Father Of The Bride, Bob

Hi Donna,

My wife and I wanted to reach out to you to say a huge thank you to all of you at Rare Form! Our wedding took place during Hurricane Irene at the Seaport Hotel in Boston and because of you all it was an amazing time. I have yet to speak with one person who attended our wedding that has not absolutely raved about the band! We were especially impressed with the band's willingness to learn songs that they previously had not played! We owe each band member a huge thank you for making the night a huge success and keeping everyone up there dancing!!

If we can ever act as a referral to you please do not hesitate to contact us. We will forever be talking about how awesome our wedding was and we owe a big piece of that to all of you!

Thanks again!!!

Greg and Jen Bell

Dear Rare Form,

Saying “Thank You” just seems inadequate. Rare Form performed at our wedding on February 13, 2010 at Wentworth by the Sea. We had an amazing time and heard rave reviews from our guests! The band had people up and dancing right from the start. I always wanted a wedding where guests in every age group would be able to have fun and dance all night. Rare Form provided this experience and then some. Guests continue to ask where I had found the band. It was such an incredible party!

More than our guests’ reviews, the most fabulous endorsement of Rare Form comes from my new husband Dave. During the planning, Dave was completely against having a band. He used to be in a signed band in the early 90s, and his father was also in a very successful 60s surfer style band, also on a label. As a result, he is, shall we say, critical of cover bands. He kept saying over and over, "I don't want some cover band trying to sing Tiny Dancer (our first dance song)." Clearly, it was a bone of contention during the wedding planning. Rare Form completely impressed him! Throughout the night he could not stop saying how awesome the band was. And, his super conservative, never seen on the dance floor, friend was up and rocking out to “Living on a Prayer.” Everything about our wedding was fantastic, and certainly made all the more so by Rare Form.
I will recommend you over and over and over.

Sincerely,
Stephanie Casper (formerly Neild)

Donna,

I know my daughter Amy has filled out your questionnaire regarding Amy’s wedding on Oct. 24, at The International. I just wanted to let you know that Mrs. Belcher and I could not have been more thrilled with the performance of Rare Form at Amy’s wedding. To put it the way the kids do these days, “they were awesome”. I can’t tell you how many of our guests commented on what a GREAT band we had. It helped to make a great day perfect.

Please relay this on to the members of Rare Form. I have already recommended them to a friend for his daughter's wedding in August 2010.

Thanks,
John Belcher

Hi Donna and Band!
We just wanted to Thank you so much for an amazing performance at our wedding on October 3, 2009. It was actually hard to believe that there was a band playing sometimes since every song sounded just like the real thing! You all were amazing!!! We are still getting compliments about you guys. All of our guests had a great time and everyone was out on the dance floor! We are recommending you to everyone we know that is getting married, we can't wait to go to another wedding that you are playing at.

Thank you again so much!!!

Hi Donna,

Thank you for your message. We had a fabulous wedding and honeymoon! We just got home last night. The wedding was outstanding and Rare Form was AWESOME!!!! I just LOVE them!! Everyone was dancing allllllll night and the dance floor was packed and that is exactly how I wished my wedding to be! We have received so many compliments about them and a few people said they wanted to hire them for their weddings. They made the night so perfect! I couldn't believe it when they announced that it was the last dance. The night flew by!

I can't thank Rare Form enough for all that they did to make our wedding perfect and special! Last time that we spoke you had mentioned that they were having a night out...I think this Wednesday. Could you let me know because I would really love to see them again!

Thanks so much for everything!

Hi Donna,

I apologize that this e-mail is as late as it is.... it should have been sent the day after our wedding. Rare Form was amazing. They were THE wedding band that we wanted... and then some. Three months later people continue to comment about Rare Form's talent and accuracy. We can not thank the band enough for 1) - being so good at what they do, and 2) - being so accomodating, friendly, and personable with my (new) wife and me and all of our guests. Rare Form rocked our wedding. The dance floor was packed all night.

Thanks again! Please let us know if Rare Form is performing for the public anytime soon.

Best Regards,

Donna et al. -

We'll be putting together a more formal thank you when we get back from our honeymoon, but we are so thoroughly thrilled with the way things turned out on Sunday night...and I suspect that the band could tell that I was certainly having a good time. :) Our guests haven't stopped raving. We can't wait to see you back at Rowes Wharf on the 19th - we'll be sure to grab you on a break.

Hi Donna,

I have been meaning to send you a note for a few weeks now (I have been busy catching up at work since getting back to CA). I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything that you did for Christina and I to help organize the music for our wedding reception. The band was AMAZING. I can't tell you how many guests have commented on this. The song selection, performance, and energy really made the reception. Essentially no one was sitting down, everyone was dancing.

Please forward this on to the members of the band, because we are so appreciative of their efforts and will be recommending them to everyone that we can. Is there a mailing address where we could send a thank you card? Please don't hesitate to use us as a reference or testimonial, and thank you so much again!

Best regards,

Hi Donna,

I just had to email to actually rave about Rare Form. The band was unbelievable. We got nothing but compliments and requests for your information. They say that the band really makes the wedding and in our case it was so true. They performed our selected songs as well as, and in some cases better than the original artists. Everyone was exhausted because they just couldn't sit out a song!!!

Thanks again for making my daughter's wedding something truly to remember!!!

Best,

Hi Donna-

Just wanted to write and thank you and the band for the amazing job they did at our wedding on the 13th! Everyone was great, and I actually have some photos of members of the band if you are interested, I can send them along. Everyone has told us that it's the best band they've heard and we have been too many, many weddings ourselves and would definitely agree.

Thanks for everything and good luck, hope we can see you again soon!

Sincerely,

Lisa Keith and Matt Lindblad

Donna,

I can't believe it has been almost a year from my wedding and I haven't sent you a thank you note yet! The band was incredible and truly made my wedding unforgettable. I received so many compliments about the band and how truly amazing they were. We even helped book the Carvallo-Sullivan wedding, who are friends of ours - and said they wouldn't get married with any other band but RARE FORM. I will be sending an electronic thank you note that you can share with the band and on your website if you like.

I just gave your name and website to three other friends who just got engaged and want the incredible sounds of Rare Form at their wedding also.

Thanks for all you did and for making my day one not to forget!

Sincerely,

Andrea Piccirillo Vlaun

Donna,

Thank you thank you thank you for performing at our wedding! Words cannot describe how absolutely amazing you guys are. The one thing we wanted all along for our wedding day was a packed dance floor and you certainly delivered! We received so many compliments on how fantastic all of you sounded...from the ceremony music, to the cocktail hour, to the reception itself it was flawless. You truly helped to make this day the best day of our lives and we will never forget it. I wouldn't be surprised if you start getting calls from guests at our wedding wanting to book you for an event of theirs.

You are fabulous, thanks again!!

Donna,

Rare Form was a huge hit. I did not have a lot to do with the wedding decorations, flowers or arrangements; finding music was my job.

The band made me look really good. They were OUTSTANDING! I guess I would describe them as “tight”—the covers they played were incredible. Steve’s song selection played to the crowd and everyone loved the performance, even my 89 year old mother who danced with me to “I Left my Heart in San Francisco.” (She was a little sore the next day from dancing to several songs!)

My bride, Pamela, ached a little too the next day as her knee has not fully rehabbed. But, nothing was going to keep her from dancing to such great music on such a wonderful evening.

I do not intend to marry again, but, my daughter might in the next few years, and, if I have any say in the matter, I will book Rare Form!

Thank you, and please give my thanks to the band!

Dear Donna, Steve, Eric, et al.

We wanted to thank you for being an integral part of a perfect day... our daughter's wedding at Chatham Bars Inn on May second. Rare Form not only met, but exceeded our expectations for providing great music for not only the reception, but also the ceremony and the cocktail hour. Everyone is still talking about the wedding, the setting, the food, the bride (of course) and the music!! We are all so glad we tracked down your band to be part of that perfect composition.

Many thanks,

Donna,

Everything was great!!! The band Rare Form was excellent, everybody said that and the next morning at breakfast everyone kept talking about the band! Please thank them all for me/us and for working with my brother in law Steve and I on the Blues Brothers. Their end was great! Our end was a bit mixed up.

I told Steve not to many drinks before our show but he didn’t listen. He kind of went off on a tangent and left me to improv! But it was great and no knew it was coming so it was that much better! One of Luke’s friends came from DC with her husband, they were married a couple of years ago. Her wedding was quite the event (her dad is the Secretary Of Energy).

At breakfast with many of us around she said “until this band I had no doubt my band was the best wedding band ever, they beat mine!

And another thing. They played, looked and acted like they really wanted to be there---everyone noticed that.

Thank Steve for me, appreciated his cooperation.

Dear Gigi, Mike, Gene, Steve, Eric, Rick, Mark, Chuck and Donna,

You out did yourself! What a fabulous way to ring in 2009! The band wowed our guests with a nonstop hora set that was full of energy and excitement. Alyssa and Ben were so happy! The entire night was perfect and we have you to thank. Our guests loved you and continue to rave about how great you were.

EVERYONE was dancing the entire night. Your range was impressive…something for everyone. I couldn’t believe how fast the night went. One o’clock came too soon!

Everyone should hire you. They will not be disappointed!

All the best,

Hi Donna,

We lucked out on July 26,08 at the Willowdale Estate in Topsfield for Jessica and Aaron's Wedding(Sinagra/Kirley).

The weather the venue the BAND the energy was the BEST. Jess wanted to get married on June 28,08 since she is 28. I boycotted saying the weather in June can be shacky but the main reason was Rare Form wasn't available, they were already booked on June 26th.

The groom and bride thanked me over and over for choosing Rare Form. What I would like to ask is I did not get a CD and would love one if I could.

Hope all is well and I can't wait until I need to book another function to use Rare Form.

Best Regards,

Hi Donna,

We just wanted to add our voices to the chorus of thank you's that you all must hear constantly...You guys were the highlight of the reception and had all the non-dancers out of their seats. We were nervous about turning over a few of our favorite songs to a band we didn't know that well, but we must admit that you guys knocked the ball completely out of the park.

Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding unforgettable.

Hi Donna,

I'm writing to you from my new email address. Rare Form played at our wedding on July 5, 2008, and I can't tell you how much we and all of our guests loved them! The dance floor was completely packed the whole time! And, as expected, they learned our songs perfectly and played them beautifully. We are so happy that we found you!

We know that you will be hearing from some of our guests for future events. Everyone was blown away! You may hear from us for my parents' next big anniversary!
Please use us as a reference any time!

Dear Gigi, Mike, Gene, Steve, Eric, Rick, Mark, Chuck and Donna, 

Wow! I don’t know how to better describe Rare Form’s performance at Jill and Bryan’s wedding. I cannot tell you how many guests commented on how great the band was. From the moment Mark and Chuck started playing When the Saints Go Marching In, the energy in the room was amazing. Everyone was up dancing. At the end of the wedding we still had a full dance floor!  Jill and Bryan could not have been happier with the band.   

We looked at over 20 bands in choosing one for the wedding. While the performances online are great, you never know how the band will be live at your party. Rare Form is better in person than on their videos! Even the staff at the State Room commented on how easy the band was to work with and how nice the members were.

Please feel free to use us as a reference. We could not be happier with the band and will tell anyone looking for one about Rare Form!

 Regards,

Dear Donna (and all the Rare Form band members),

We cannot say thank you enough for playing at our wedding. The band is just so incredibly talented and energetic- it really made the reception! We also really appreciate your ability to learn the songs we requested- it was like you had been playing them for years! We watched the wedding video last night and still can't believe just how amazing you were. The singers and musicians were exceptional and the volume was perfect. Please always feel free to use us as a reference- we'll never forget how perfect you were.

All the best,

Hi Donna,

I just wanted to tell you and all the band members of Rare Form how great you were! I was blown away but the talent that they have. I couldn't have imagined a better selection of music, or a better group of people. I can't even begin to tell you the compliments you guys received from the guests. You added such a special touch to the wedding. Every song sounded so perfect! The instruments, the voices were stunning. It really was a dream come true wedding and wanted you guys to know.

Thank you!

Donna,

We just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for being so wonderful to work with throughout the planning of our wedding and during our wedding reception. I didn't get a chance to talk to the band to tell them what an amazing job they did, but I know that my parents did. They were phenomenal! We received compliments throughout the night and the days following about how people didn't know whether it was a CD playing or the band because they sounded just like the artist they were covering!

Thanks to you too, for listening to our ideas and always making me feel welcome to ask questions or give preferences. Thank you also for your email on our wedding day! That truly brightened my day and made me feel so excited to get things started. 

You guys are amazing and we will be referring RARE FORM to everyone!

Sincerely,

Hello,

I was at the McGuire-Kelleher wedding this past Saturday at the Corinthian in Marblehead. I just wanted to let you guys know that you were absolutely fantastic! The selection of songs, the amazing vocals, all the different instruments and the whole energy and spirit you all put into the performance were truly amazing! Even my 72 year old mother commented that it was one of the few recent weddings she had been to where the band ( RARE FORM)  was so exceptional that she wanted to dance to every song (which she practically did!). 

As you heard, Sheila's father took ill that morning and the entertainment you provided really helped to keep everyone uplifted and celebrating!

Again, you all are amazing!! Thanks for making the day so much fun!
