For the past 20 years, the Blake Newman Group has been performing at weddings, corporate events and various private celebrations throughout New England. We are all full-time professional musicians with many, many years of playing experience. It gives us great pleasure to share our music with audiences, but at the same time we appreciate that our clients are often in need of entertainment that does not overshadow the occasion itself. We understand that organizing an event can be stressful and are ready to provide you with worry-free music for your function. Your experience working with the Blake Newman Group will be effortless: from our first conversation, to choosing music, to the performance itself, you'll find us to be responsive, enthusiastic, well-organized and always kind and courteous.

We are happy to provide excellent references, as well as a song list upon request.

Thanks for your interest--we look forward to hearing from you!! Again, please contact us at realmusic@comcast.net.

"The Blake Newman Group did a great job performing at a wine reception held by the Society of Toxicology and Chemistry at the Hynes Auditorium. Blake was responsive and easy to work with before the event. The group was very professional and our members really enjoyed the music. The group’s performance helped to enliven our event and draw in the crowd, which is exactly what we hoped for. I would highly recommend this group." -S. Kane Driscoll, SETAC North America
