2017 Winner: Beantown


This versatile 11-piece outfit has performed for two Patriots Super Bowl parties and been featured in Mick Jagger’s short-lived HBO series Vinyl, but for founder Tim Wilson, the most significant gig is always a wedding. “It’s one of the most important days in a couple’s life,” says the keyboard player. “We have just one chance to get it right—no do-overs!” Beantown takes just one break for each four-hour party to keep it rockin’ all night long, but you’ve got to act fast: The band books up for Saturdays almost two years in advance.
