High-energy dance sets with a ton of variety have made this an extremely popular band. With 5 lead singers, Flipside offers a wider range of music than most bands and all performed with real heart and soul. Repertoire ranges from Top 40, classic rock, 80s and 90s hits, acoustic favorites, reggae, soul, old school ballads, jazz and ethnic songs.
7 pieces. Male lead and female lead vocalists, plus singing saxophone, guitarist/vocalist, keyboard, bass/vocals, drums, and sound engineer. Flipside can add horns a la carte or by 3 piece section and often adds a Latin percussionist for larger events. Flipside features fantastic acoustic guitar cocktail and ceremony music options as well as DJ service for breaks or an after- party.
Flipside is such a successful band, possibly because they are lead onstage by one of the owners of Murray Hill Talent who works closely with client to pre- plan each event and fine tune the details. Time after time, we hear that this extra level of attention makes the event more special and personalized. Read the reviews, see what past clients have to say about this band. They are masters of all styles of music: they can rock, they can swing, they can lay down the funk- and all with authenticity and serious intensity. Members of Flipside have performed throughout the world with such high profile artists as Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Rihanna, Rick James, Britney Spears, Lauryn Hill, the Wu Tang Clan, Jimmy Cliff, Brian McKnight, Maceo Parker, T-Bone Burnett, and Roberta Flack. Members have also performed on the Tonight Show, MTV, Saturday Night Live and Conan O’Brien. Members of Flipside have acted as the backing band for Mary Wilson of the Supremes on multiple occasions.
Flipside has been featured in a large front page spread of The Living Art section of The Boston Globe as “The Toast of the Town” and have performed live on Fox-25 Morning News. Flipside has performed at weddings for high profile clients, including Boston Celtics All-Star Ray Allen, Jack & SuzyWelch (CEO of General Electric and noted author) and Elizabeth (The View / Survivor/Fox News) & Tim (NFL quarterback) Hasselbeck, Tom Finneran (MA speaker of the house) and author Kate Northrup. They are one of the only groups to perform live on the field at Boston’s Fenway Park with members of the Red Sox and their wives. They were also the band of choice for fundraisers such as The Steppingstone Foundation‘s “Steppin’ out” gala, Boston Magazine’s “Best Of Boston” party, multiple Joslin Diabetes fundraisers, a Beacon Hill Civic Association Gala, Harvard University’s Fly Club party, Green Light Fund “Emerald Evening”, American Heart Association’s “Heartball” with President Bill Clinton, the launch party for Boston Common Magazine, Boston Ballet’s 50th Anniversary Gala, Governor Deval Patrick’s 50th Birthday celebration (featuring cellist Yo Yo Ma) as well as TWO of his inaugural balls.
Flipside specializes in a large variety of songs and styles. Their primary focus is high energy dance music for all ages: Motown/Soul, Top 40, Funk, and Classic Rock. Some defining repertoire that is currently part of their sets: Uptown Funk (Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson), Get Lucky (Daft Punk), Happy (Pharrell Williams), Royals (Lorde), Everything (Michael Buble), Shout (Isley Bros. version), Let’s Stay Together (Al Green), Don’t Stop Believing (Journey), Superstition (Stevie Wonder ) and many vintage Michael Jackson hits.

Mike Watts and Kate Northrup, 7/5/14 wedding, Southern Maine Community Colllege, Portland, ME
My husband and I hired the FLIPSIDE to play at our wedding, they were hands down the most amazing band either of us have ever heard. From the first email sent to Murray Hill talent we were made to feel as if we were their only clients. Corin Ashley who is the manager at Murray Hill talent and also a lead singer and guitar player for FLIPSIDE, is one of the best people out there. He is so dedicated to his music and making sure his clients are well taken care of, he was having as much fun at our wedding as we did- and it showed. People were left starstruck and months after the big day we still have people calling us telling us it was the best band they have ever seen. I have told every one of my engaged friends that this is the band they NEED to hire, I would have eaten hot dogs and worn a paper bag as a dress if it meant I could have the FLIPSIDE at our wedding. Look no further- this is the band and agency that will make your day!
Sarah Berry & MIke Merriam wedding- Herreshoff Marine Museum, Bristol, RI 6/28/2014
Thank you SO MUCH for such a fantastic wedding. We just got back from our honeymoon last night and have been absolutely bombarded with emails, calls and texts about how great the wedding was but the one thing they have in common is everyone is OBSESSED with the band. John’s old boss even told us he is going to book you guys, he doesn’t have an event yet but he is planning on using you as soon as he can come up with something. You guys were so so so so so so great. I cannot thank you enough for making everything so perfect. You guys were so wonderful even John who I can never get to dance was dancing all night.
Thank you for sending the set list. Young and old everyone was talking about the song selection. They thought we came up with the set list and I had to tell them that you guys were the ones with the ridiculously diverse and fantastic taste in music. I can’t believe you threw in all those songs that we had picked for our videographer. He must have told you right; no way that was a coincidence? You really thought of everything.
Christina Simollardes & John Bentley, wedding, Barn at Gibbet Hill, Groton, MA 12/28/13
Corin, you are my new favorite person. Mark and I could not have been happier with Flipside at our wedding. There was not a single song that I thought "oh I wish they didn't play that" and there isn't a song I can think of that you didn't play that I wanted to hear. Everything was spot on and there was something for everyone. In case you didn't notice, Mark and I didn't leave the dance floor and were sweaty messes by the end of the night, which says to me it was one hell of a party. We had an absolute blast and I can say the same for each of our guests, who are all still gushing over the band. Thank you, thank you, thank you for everyone you did to make such a memorable day for us, including putting aside your pride to learn a One Direction song for us. I told you it would be a hit! Thanks for everything and I hope we have an opportunity to work together again in the future!
Juliana Bordieri, Mark Bankover wedding, the State Room, Boston, 10/26/13
Wanted to shoot you a note and let you know how incredibly happy we were with Flipside at our wedding on 9/14 at the Taj- you guys are absolutely amazing and everyone has been telling us the same thing! We really appreciate how smooth of a process it was to work with you and truly made our wedding day special. I've never seen more people on the dance floor at once!
Scott & Tami Mancinelli, 9/14/13 Wedding at the Taj Hotel, Boston
We've received so many emails in the last 2 days, people are raving about Flipside, you really made our party a huge success. Thanks for reading the crowd so well and throwing in the special requests. I will certainly recommend you to friends and if I plan another event for myself or someone else.
Leslie Littlejohn, 8/11/13 Summer party in Manchester, MA
Mike and I want to say THANK YOU for making our wedding absolutely phenomenal. Throughout the process, I had a million questions and perhaps a few demands, and you both took it in stride and understood that music was the foundation to the wedding. In addition, trekking up 3 1/2 hours on a very hot day and playing your guts out? Amazing. Everyone continues to rave about the band! All that I know is that my oldest brother did the worm, my other brother was on my cousin's back and during American Girl I laid on the dance floor in my air-guitaring glory! Thank you for making our wedding truly spectacular, Corin. I hope you had as much fun as we did, we just wish we had you guys playing for longer (damn noise ordinance).
Alaina LeBlanc and Mike Tidente, 7/6/13 wedding at Point Lookout, Northport, ME
Oh. My. God. What an amazing day it was! We had such a fabulous time and I wanted to thank you and the band for making our special day so fantastic. Honestly, so many people have asked who you guys were and said you were "the best band ever." You probably already know that though :) Thank you a million times. I knew you were the perfect band for us. Hope to see you again soon!
Sara and Asher Chappell, 10/7/12 wedding at Falmouth Country Club, Falmouth, ME
Derek and I wanted to thank you for everything and putting on an amazing show! From the ceremony, cocktail hour and of course the reception it was more than we could've imagined. Everyone is still talking about how great you and flipside were. Thank you for making the whole process enjoyable for derek and I as well. Please keep us in the loop for any more of your upcoming performances in the Boston area. Would love to hear sarah smile again! :)
Sarah and Derek Macinanti, 8/11/12 wedding at Belle Mer, Newport, RI
We can't thank you guys enough for being so incredible at our wedding. Working in the music business myself we had set our expectations extremely high and i'm so happy to say you far exceeded them and were great to work with. I can't tell you how many guests came up to us after the party and said you are the best band they have ever seen at a wedding! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Steve & Melissa Bilchik, 7/14/12 wedding at The Inn on Peaks Island, Portland, MEAMAZING TIME! Amazing playlist! The crowd didn't leave the dancefloor (and neither did the bride!) Between our first dance ("Whatever it is") to American Girl, to the dance with my dad ("My Little Girl") - you had it all down to a science. By far the best choice we made, and will remain as a night to remember! We want a re-do!!
Micki & Jeff Maher, 7/13/12 wedding at Regatta Place, Newport, RICorin and Flipside went above and beyond to make our wedding fabulous - not only did they completely rock our fist dance - they blew the roof off! Our guests have talked about them for weeks and I wish we could do it all again! Thank You!!.

Shannon McCormick, 10/8/11 wedding, Wentworth By The Sea, Newcastle, NHI've been so busy this week starting school I haven't had time to properly thank you for the AMAZING job Flipside did at our wedding. You guys made the party! We heard over and over again how you were the best wedding band people had ever heard (including 3 professional musicians)! Thank you for indulging my husband, father, and friend Dennis by allowing them onstage as well. You had such an impact on making our wedding amazing!!!!!! Sarabeth Wagner, 9/3/11 wedding, Nonantum Inn, Kennebunkport, MECorin & the rest of the incredible band, we can't thank you enough for all you did to make our wedding so incredibly special - All of the personal touches; sit downs to review iPods & music we love, to absolutely reading the room perfectly & knowing which way to take the party - ALL SPECTACULAR, and we're happy to refer you to all of our friends - you guys rocked it every step along the way and we were so lucky to have you with us on our wedding day!!
Janel & Peter McArdle, 5/14/11 wedding, Wequassett Inn, Chatham, MAI do not even know where to begin with this. Thank you so much from the very bottom of our hearts. You guys truly rocked and we’re convinced that you made the wedding and that Flipside, “our band,” will be the topic of conversation & recommendation for years to come. You seriously kept people smiling, dancing, and most importantly on the dance floor, ALL NIGHT LONG. Thank you for learning our special songs. It meant a lot to us, and our parents as well. Finally, thank you for cooperating & working so seamlessly with the Greek band. I think the breaks & transitions were perfect. If we made any single decision right, without any question it would be choosing you. Thank you for making our wedding a dream come true. We will be sure that all our friends choose.consider you for their weddings if for no other reason than us being able to hear you rock out again! Alex & Lindsay Chryssis, 10/9/10 wedding, Fairmont Copley Plaza, BostonIt was great working with Corin, and the band overall was awesome! He had helpful suggestions for the timeline of the evening. Everyone at the wedding had a blast. Thank you! Eliza & Matt Cutrell, 9/4/10 wedding, Marion, MAThe band was universally praised by our guests and we continue to get positive feedback. Not only did they sound incredible and keep everyone on the dance floor they were also extremely responsive and professional in preparation for the big day. We would be delighted to serve as a reference for anyone considering Flipside or Murray Hill. A special thanks to Corin for taking the lead and answering all of our questions/concerns leading up to the event - always helpful and responsive with a great can-do attitude. Ben & Marisa Tuttman, 8/21/10 wedding, Boston Public LibraryEveryone when planning a wedding stresses about all of the little things like place cards & flowers. In the end, there is only one thing that matters or anyone cares about...the band. Flipside is the best band that you could possibly have. No one comes close. We had 250 people at our wedding and at one point I counted 20 people not on the dance floor. It was an unforgettable night and most of it is due to Corin and the band. Brendan & Elizabeth Walsh, 5/29/10 wedding, Ocean Edge, Brewster, MAFlipside is the only band to book for a celebration, period. Corin and the other band members were absolutely amazing.

Thank you again for everything! Amy Scofield & Tim Griffin, 5/22/10 wedding, Rosecliff Mansion, Newport, MAOur wedding reception was perfect and the band was at the center of it all. The pacing/sequence of the reception was exactly what we wanted because the band effectively followed the rough plan we laid out. They also turned the place into the greatest dance party in the history of time. Thank you Corin & Flipside! Our families and guests will be talking about our wedding band for years to come. Thanks for an unbelievable night! Stephanie & Danny Silver, 5/15/10 wedding, Granite Rose, Hampstead NHOut of control amazing!! We continue to receive compliments about the band.

We had a blast and the dancefloor was packed all night!! You really set the tone for an exuberant and joyous celebration. All of the guests from young to older were dancing and it was such a room full of love thanks to your incredible talent. That sax solo during “At Last” was transcendent!! Liz & Pablo Arredando, 9/26/09 wedding, Epicenter, BostonWe're sitting here in hawaii and Kara and I can't stop talking about how unbelievable Flipside was at our wedding. Having a great band that would get everyone dancing was so important to us and you guys blew us away. Kara can't stop talking about how great you were on Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I can't thank you enough for you professionalism but more importantly, your amazing performance. You guys were the highlight of the weekend (other than actually getting married of course!)We will never forget Flipside and will recommend you to anyone looking for a great band. Kara Sullivan & Jamie Harris, 9/19/009 wedding, Wychmere Harbor, Harwichport, MAFlipside was absolutely amazing! The dance floor was packed the entire night. I honestly don’t think I left the dance floor once! Each song was better than the last. Everytime I see any of our wedding guests, they rave about the band! Also, Corin was so great to work with and having him DJ for an hour after the band was perfect. He played all the perfect songs! Flipside and Murray Hill exceeded my expectations and I will recommend them to everyone! Caitlin & Mike Golden, 9/12/09 wedding, Boston Harbor HotelYou were terrific! Thank you so much for making our wedding an absolute blast. From the first dance song with the curtain opening to the last , you had all our guests on the dance floor. And Everyone complimented us on the band - so thank you! I will definitely be recommending Flipside to all my brides! I hope we get to see you guys perform again soon! Lara & Jon Mercer, 8/29/09 wedding, Boston Opera HouseI never got a chance to say good bye to you on Friday or Thank you. Flipside did such an amazing job. I can't thank you enough. Everyone absolutely loved you guys. The music was totally perfect. We were so happy you were able to play all the songs we requested. It was the most perfect night ever and we have you guys to thank for that. I can't tell you how many people have told us that you are the best wedding band they have ever heard. I would recommend you to anyone a thousand times over. You really made one of the most important days of our lives a memory that we will never forget. Jen Caroll & Ian Chisolm, 8/21/09 wedding, Lake View Pavilion, Foxboro, MAEvery single one of our guests commented on how great Flipside was. They really made the event. Flipside is more expensive than other wedding bands we considered, and they were absolutely worth every penny. We’ve had friends comment that they would love to throw a party, just so Flipside could perform. Jessica & Santino Carnevale, 8/15/09 wedding, The Commons, Topsfield, MACorin and the rest of Flipside were absolutely amazing, from the first time I spoke to Corin to the final song. He was a pleasure to work with and rocked the tent! My guests were so excited with the music, they danced before dinner was served until the end of the night, begging for ‘One More Song!’ Jamie & Michael Coppens, 8/8/09 wedding, Nonantum Resort, Kennebunkport, MEWe hired Flipside for our daughter’s wedding a couple of weeks ago on Cape Cod. The experience was superb from beginning to end. Both Emma, my daughter, and I found Corin to be very responsive, helpful, and musically broadminded. While my husband and I are huge fans of the Motown and seventies R&B music found on much of Flipside’s playlist., Emma and her fiancé have definite musical tastes that range from James Brown to Neil Young, REM, Lil Wayne, and alternative indie rock, and they also were thrilled with the tunes that Corin and the band crafted seamlessly into their sets. Our guests filled the dance floor from the very beginning and didn’t stop until the final song. Actually, they didn’t stop dancing then, so we had the band play for another hour. The instrumentals and vocals were perfectly matched, and the band members were both friendly and very professional. We highly recommend Flipside.
