Endless Summer

Endless Summer plays an ideal balance of acoustic guitar based warm weather favorites and fun dance music heard at beach resorts throughout New England.  Focusing on repertoire from artists such as The Beach Boys, Bob Marley, Van Morrison, The Beatles, Jack Johnson, The Eagles, Otis Redding, Tom Petty, John Mayer, Neil Young and Jimmy Buffet , Endless Summer helps guests feel the warmth of the sun.  The groups deep repertoire also touches on classic rock, fun 80’s and 90’s hits, reggae, Motown, 70’s one-hit wonders, and contemporary top 40 hits sprinkled throughout.

The group most often performs as a trio or quartet but is also available in specialized configurations.  For smaller events and cocktail receptions, an acoustic duo or trio including Latin percussion/congas in a nice touch.   A steel “pan” drummer may be added to greatly increase the “Island Vibe”

Endless Summer has performed for company picnics, cocktail receptions, summer parties, weddings , boat cruises and Island excursions at some of these fine places : Chatham Bars Inn, Colonnade Hotel Roofdeck, The Beachcomber, Steep Hill Beach, Regatta Place, The Chanler at Cliff Walk,  Museum of Science-Pavillion, Thompson Island, Belle Mer,  Ipswich Country Club, Fenway Park, Fan Pier, Sam’s-Boston, OceanCliff and TD Banknorth Garden, Odyssey Cruises, Hyatt Harborside Boston, Country Club at New Seabury, New England Aquarium, Vineyard Vines Boston, Seaport Hotel & Atlantica Cohasset. Endless Summer hosted an open- air concert in Boston’s Rose Kennedy Park to celebrate Brain Wilson’s birthday, produced by the Chiofaro company.

We hired Endless Summer, led by Ken Freeman, to play at our wedding. Ken was terrific to work with throughout the process. The band's keyboardist played solo during our ceremony, and his timing and execution of the songs we chose were perfect. The band played a great mix of classic rock along with some special requests. Many guests commented on how great the band was. Endless Summer was professional, personable, and really helped to create the atmosphere we were looking for. Great find!!

I just wanted to let you know that Endless Summer was absolutely fantastic and a huge hit at our wedding reception last Saturday. They had a great sound and created just the mood we were looking for at our reception. They played a great variety of music creating a laid back but festive atmosphere on the waterfront. Everyone asked us who they were, and said how great they were. We are very glad that we had Endless Summer to play at our reception. Thank you, and our best to the band!
Ian and Michele Robinson, wedding at Regatta Place, Newport, RI

Absolutely awesome!! Endless Summer was great, I'd hire them for an event anytime, I only wish I could have planned to have them play longer.
Jill & Nathaniel Deknatel, wedding in South Dartmouth, MA

Jaime and I were very pleased with the band Endless Summer. Ken Freeman, the lead singer is great. We visited Durgin Park in Faneuil Hall to hear him play before we hired him. He played acoustics only during the ceremony and the rest of the band joined him for the remainder of the night. Jaime had some special requests and preferences and he was very accommodating. The event managers at The Chanler in Newport, where we were married, also were impressed with the band and are planning on adding them to their preferred vendor list.

My team who attended the function, together with various guests have said how good the band was, and how they really “made” the evening.
Jardine Lloyd Thompson Limited, TD BankNorth Garden

“The Band was excellent!!! Better even then we hoped for. They followed our instructions perfectly and were easy to work with. Even better they were extraordinary performers and had the dance floor packed all night. Everyone at the wedding loved them! I would 100% recommend them to anyone. Everyone at Murray Hill was also great to work with and we will definitely turn to you for any music needs in the future. THANK YOU!“
Lindsay & Joe Dacey, wedding at Elm Bank Horticultural Center, Wellesley

“It is a pleasure to report on how great the entertainment was yesterday. The music was awesome and the members really played to the audience. Received numerous accolades from attendees on how much they enjoyed summer tunes of the Endless Summer band. Please pass on my personal thanks, along with the thanks from the NCS Seaside Beach Party attendees, for the music provided to us by the musicians.”
