Who are Young Love & The Thrills?
Boston Magazine’s Best of Weddings, 2022 Band of the Year.
Think a wedding can’t feel like a concert? Guess again! When this beloved eight-person band takes the stage, the party absolutely reaches a new level! Thanks to Young Love’s high energy, killer vocals, creative mashups and medleys, and songs spanning the tastes of every attendee from Grandma to teenage cousins, they keep even the most timid of dancers up and moving (and singing) all night long. Young Love is not your average wedding band, they are a concert in a bottle and party on tap!
Young Love and the Thrills is also turning into the launchpad band of Boston, with more and more members and former members doing major things in the music industry! Whether it’s being a finalist on NBC’s The Voice, touring the world with Noah Kahan, or headlining jazz festivals with Arturo Sandoval, Young Love musicians can be seen everywhere!!! In 2023 Young Love musicians appeared on SNL, the main stage of Boston Calling, NBC’s The Voice on Team Legend, BBC Live Lounge, and of course at dozens of weddings and private events.
What does Young Love always provide?
Unlike many of our contemporaries, Young Love and The Thrills is a full-time line up of musicians, playing every show as the same band, all year long. The ensemble consists of our two powerhouse vocalists up front (male and female lead vocalists), drums, keyboard, guitar, bass, tenor saxophone, and trumpet, as well as emcee services for your introductions and speeches for your wedding or private party.
Our all new, state of the art sound system, is both powerful and robust, using in-ear monitors to cut back on feed back while pumping the right amount of low end thump from the bass and kick, while the vocals smack you just right. Additionally, our highly trained audio technicians are there the whole day and night to make sure everything is crisp and clear, providing a concert level performance and presentation through a sound system that no one else in Boston or New England can offer.
We're hipper than you probably need us to be...

What are people saying?
“I don’t even know where to start. These guys were incredible! From beginning to end they rocked the house! The sound was perfect and they played all the songs we wanted and more! Coming from a musical background I am very picky and always over critical of live bands and this one never let me down for one second. From pronouncing family members by their correct names to keeping the crowd going the entire reception, they have an energy and feel that will keep you dancing the entire night! Their musical talent individually is incredible and as an entire group the possibilities are endless. The lead female vocalist Shannon Corey has such a dynamic range that can cover any style of song and you don’t feel like your listening to some wedding singer but you have a true authentic talented vocalist dazzling your ears throughout the entire night. The band behind her is nothing less than extraordinary. The Lead guitarist Sean Cronin has such incredible technique and style that you get lost in his amazing playing and solos. The bass player Shon Gordon is so versatile and intriguing that when the bass starts booming you just want to get up and dance. The drummer Marcos Valles with his great vocals and harmonies while playing is just an amazing site to see. Andy Wesby the keyboardist not only can rock out the ivories but wails on harmonica as well! With an incredibly well rounded band that knows how to have a good time and are also amazingly polite and professional there is no better band you could choose from for your perfect day.”
