Thank you again for all your help coordinating with the band. As mentioned in my previous email, we are thrilled with Unity. We felt Dave really understood the vibe we were going for based on one conversation with him, which we really appreciated. He asked good questions and really listened to our vision. Our friends continue to comment on the Band as one of the highlights of the evening. We only wish we could do it again!!
Please find below some specific feedback and let me know if you’d like anything more.
Set up – Band was on time and well prepared; they were also extremely friendly in introducing themselves to us and conveying their excitement to be there.
Ceremony – Keyboardist played the requested songs and set the right tone
Cocktail Hour – Guitar player played a perfect variety of songs and at the appropriate volume for people to mingle
Dinner – Sound equipment was set up without a hitch. They also coordinated well with the event planner on timing of introductions, toasts, cake cutting etc. It was a huge help to have them guide the overall timing.
First Dances – there was a slight mix up in order but this was a non-issue for Abby and me – their version of Higher Love was perfect
Set list 1 & 2 – A real good variety and executed on what we asked – provide energy for a dance party. This was the first wedding we’ve been to, where the crowd boo’ed, when they played their only slow song. 🙂 We also appreciated that the band break was quick and appropriately times.
Crushed Dynamite – same song that we walked back down the aisle to (from the keyboardist)
Strong start to Set list 2 with Shake it Off (only song that was requested other than first dances)
The sax player coming into the crowd was awesome and blurred the line between band and guest – we were all friends just having a good time
Everyone keeps mentioning the strength of the female vocalist in particular.
Finale – brought the house down with Your Love – The Outfield
General – went pretty much as smoothly as it could have. From a process standpoint it would have been helpful to get a better sense on when the hand-offs happen between you, Corin and Dave. Also, some of the paperwork seemed to be repetitive or it wasn’t clear what paperwork really needed to be filled out.
It was very much appreciated that you all connected directly with Evelyn at the venue as it took away some stress out of the process for us
Lastly, Unity (as stated in point #1) did a great job of being one with the party and were extremely excited to be there – it looked like they were having fun too

I just got home from my honeymoon and wanted to send you and Unity a quick to note to say thank you for your amazing performance at our wedding!! You played such a great variety of music from old Sinatra to Country. All our guests loved your music and many were asking who the band was!I believe you’re also playing at my good friend Krissy’s wedding on the Cape in a few weeks. We’re looking forward to seeing you then!!Thanks again!!Schuyler & Phil7/14/18 Dunes Club, Narragansett, RIhaven’t had the chance to check in with you guys since Saturday night, but I wanted to make sure I reached out ASAP to say thank you. The band was awesome and we could not be happier with how everything turned out (including Dave crushing Born to Run!).Everyone had a blast and we heard countless specific comments on how great you guys were. Let us know if there is any place you would like us to post our glowing review- we would be happy to share how great our experience was with you guys.We can’t say enough how great you all were.Thank you!Matt and Kelly9/22/18 Chatham Bars Inn, Chatham, MA
Thanks Cory! Unity was incredible. Played all our favorites and got rave reviews from all the guests. Thanks so much for helping to make the night perfect. Take CareJon and Emily Favreau 6/17/17 Abenakee Club-Biddeford Pool, ME
“Hi Cory – Thank you so much for all of your help on a completely seamless process. We couldn’t be happier with our choice to hire Unity for our wedding. We just got back from the honeymoon and guests are still raving about how great they were. I especially appreciated them learning such a ridiculous song request (Tarzan Boy) because it made the crowd go nuts when they heard it. Seeing my closest group of friends in a circle, jumping up and down to a song we love so much, was a highlight of the entire day.Thanks again. I’ll be sure to recommend Unity to anyone”Sarah and Declan Gaul 6/10/17 Harvard Club-Boston“My husband and I were blown away by the entire Murray Hill Talent team. They were extremely professional, quick to respond throughout the entire wedding process and made sure our wedding went off without a hitch. We chose Unity, and we sure were glad we did! The entire dance floor was rocking the entire evening and the band had such great energy. We are so glad we went with Unity even though we didn’t get the chance to hear them before our wedding. We are still getting compliments week after the wedding about how good our band was!”Molly and Uthman Arogundade 6/24/17 Red Lion Inn
I can’t even begin to explain how awesome/amazing/incredible you guys were last night. Everyone wanted to know who you were, where the band was from, and how were you all SO good! We knew we wanted a live band at our wedding but you blew us away with the talent and energy on the stage last night. I can’t say enough good things about you guys! From start to finish the whole company has been a breeze to work with and since the minute the band took the stage you set exactly the vibe we were trying to encourage. Thank you for making yesterday the most incredibly epic day of our lives – it would not have been the same without Unity!!!!! All our love,
Sara & Chris Bishop, 9/19/15, The Fells, Newbury, NH
Unity was awesome, they killed it! Everyone said they had a blast and loved the band. We had the best weekend and got so lucky with the weather. Corin was awesome for the ceremony as well and it really worked out great. I’ve had tons of people tell us how much they loved you guys and how impressed they were. Thanks so much for everything and making it happen smoothly! Will be sure to recommend you guys to friends in the future.

I had such a great experience working with Murray Hill. From the start, we had a great night listening to the bands at the Murray Hill band showcase. It was a fun night, snacking, drinking cocktails and listening to great music. We picked our band, Unity, that night. Working with Murray Hill was flawless. They answered emails quickly. They are very easy going. The day of my wedding went so smoothly. The band was phenomenal! Everyone said how great they were!! We danced the whole night. We had guests contact us after the wedding to find out the bands info for their upcoming wedding! They made our night memorable! Thank you Murray Hill!!!

“Everything was perfect, thank you again so much. We could not have asked for a better event! Everyone loved Unity!!Todd and Klady Lamb, 6/3/17 Portland, ME
Everything was great! The band was super energetic and easy to work with and the vocalists were great. Almost all the guests were on the dance floor. Also, Ryan was great to work with leading up to the day – super easy-going. At one point we didn’t think the ceremony musician was going to show up and the band quickly offered their services. The ceremony guitarist did end up coming, but I appreciated the band springing into action so quickly.
Amy Werner, Wedding, 8/29/15 Gedney Farm-New Marlboro, MA
We had Murray Hill Talent’s band Unity perform at our wedding and they were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! Everyone (parents, older family members, younger family members, friends…) had an unbelievable time. You definitely can’t go wrong with this band. In addition to the wedding itself, they were also terrific to work with leading up to the wedding. Cory and Ryan were very organized and gave us full confidence that the wedding would go off without a hitch. Ryan also played acoustic guitar for us during the ceremony itself and during the cocktail hour. Not surprisingly, he did an amazing job during these two components as well. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed with going with Unity!!!
Phillip and Devon Lacombe 8/15/15 Museum of Science-Boston, MA
The wedding was excellent! Beautiful location, great food and drink, and phenomenal band. Unity did an unbelievably good job, and far exceeded our already high expectations. Lots of energy, great dancing, awesome song list…the list of positives goes on!

My husband and I booked the band Unity through Murray Hill talent for our wedding and couldn’t have been happier. Cory with Murray Hill was great to work with. Communication was fast and easy. I would absolutely recommend Murray Hill for your next event!!!
Thanks Murray Hill Talent!
Eric & Lara Jahn, 9/20/14 Fairmont Battery Wharf-Boston
They Killed It. Was an awesome time. Place was dancing the whole time and getting up on stage with them at the end was a real thrill. I hope they thought we were a good crowd
John Cooney 9/19/14, Wentworth by the Sea- Newcastle, NH
We had an amazing wedding weekend, everything was perfect. I just wanted to say thanks for all your help. And ask you to pass on to Unity a huge THANK YOU from Dave and I. They were wonderful, so much fun! Our guests absolutely LOVED them! We keep hearing from our guests how much they loved the band!
Laura Bothwell 8/30/14 Round Barn Farm – Waitsfield, VT
We only had 5 months to plan our wedding and so we hired Unity without having seem them perform. Unity blew us away. They were incredible. They were on time, professional and the music was awesome. We had a number of people at the reception compliment the band and ask us how we found them. We had Unity learn a song for our first dance, and they performed it perfectly. We couldn’t have asked for more. We would highly recommend Unity.
Monica Singh 8/16/14 State Room, Boston
The wedding was perfect, and the band was just fantastic. We appreciate all your help!
Matt & Meg Thornton 6/21/14 Belle Mer-Newport, RI
Thank you!! The wedding was amazing, everyone had such a blast and Unity was PHENOMENAL!! Our guests tore up the dance floor and had the best time! Thank you for all of your help in coordinating the details and setting us up with them, they were fabulous!!!
Sarah & Avery Graves 6/14/14 Private Residence, Grafton, VT
I want you to know that we were so happy with Unity at the wedding on June 7th. The group was absolutely amazing and, obviously, very talented. Everyone keep saying how great they were and this was evident on the dance floor! Thank you for all your help and planning leading up to the wedding. Please let us know if we can serve as references for any future clients.
Dana & Nicole Turgiss 6/7/14 Atlantic Restaurant – Cohasset, MA
Everything went very well and the band was great !!! The only complaints was that the night went by so fast, it was over before we knew it!!
Siobhan Hunter Wequassett Inn 5/24/14
Unity was fantastic! We had a blast at our wedding and have received numerous compliments from our guests!
Alyssa Martin 8/10/13 Bedford Village Inn-Bedford, NH
Unity was phenomenal! Their mix of songs was fantastic, they had people on the dance floor all night long and when they wrapped up the evening with a Pied Piper line following the sax player and other musicians out to the decorated limo for the exit of our newly married couple, our guests were thrilled! It was a magical night for all! Thank you for representing such top quality entertainment.
Gail Hayter 7/20/13 Rosecliff Mansion-Newport, RI
We had a great time. Unity was super. They really set the pace and kept it moving. We are a tough audience from Detroit- raised on Motown, Aretha Franklin, and more recently Eminem and Kid Rock. We and our guests thoroughly enjoyed Unity, their solid repertoire, and danced until the house turned up the lights. Thanks for making it a great celebration!<br>
Robert Greenstone 6/14/13 Woodstock Inn & Resort, VT
The band was amazing! Everyone had a fabulous time, and the dance floor really was packed for the whole night thanks to a great job by Unity. Morgan has such a phenomenal voice, and everyone loved all the songs they did. Seriously everyone I’ve talked to about the wedding has mentioned how great the band was. Also, right before the cake cutting was supposed to happen it turned out that my grandfather was sick and needed to go home but wanted to dance with me first, so we told Morgan that there was a change of plans and the band went right into playing “My Girl” so I could have a special dance with my grandfather. It worked out so perfectly, and no one else even knew that it was a last second switch.
Also, Morgan was so great to work with, and so nice. I really appreciated that she was so calm and kind and kept things so low stress.
Really, from our perspective it couldn’t have gone any better. Thank you!
