Here are some of the nice things people have said about Hello Newman:

“If you're looking for a 'can't miss' band, Hello Newman is the choice! We've had them play our parties, events, booze cruises and you know who leaves disappointed? NOBODY!! Get Ready to rock, dance, and sing along with these guys...I can say for certain that you won't regret it!”

Joey "Disco" Dionne — DJ at WCYY

“Having Hello Newman as our band was easily one of the best decisions that we made in planning our wedding. From our initial contact, they were extremely friendly, quick to respond, and on top of important details — very professional. As the day drew closer, meeting with the group put me completely at ease that they would handle the night perfectly, from ceremony music and reception announcements to first dance songs and the actual reception. It was so much fun to be able to choose a core of songs that we know and love to have everyone dance to. All of our friends and older relatives alike knew every word to most of the music played and it only got better as the night went on. We've had MANY people tell us since our day that they enjoyed Hello Newman IMMENSELY. They are worth every single penny and then some.”

Cassie and Derrill Vezina

“Hello Newman absolutely made our wedding. We had so much fun dancing the night away and all of our guests were blown away by their talent. The guys were enthusiastic and professional. There was lots of communication leading up to the wedding and they were happy to learn songs for our first dance, father-daughter, and mother-son. I cannot recommend them enough to anyone who loves music — they will make your event incredible. We love Hello Newman!”

Katelyn & Tom Holt

“Hello Newman is amazing — they were the hit of our party! They are all incredible musicians and do a great job of keeping the guests engaged. Many of the guests that attended the party asked me how they could book Hello Newman. We will definitely book these guys again! The booking process was easy and Jim was great to work with. Can't wait to see them again!”

Laura & Jake Jones

“Hello Newman was the main event at our class reunion. Not only was their music great, but they brought the house down with their ability to play to the crowd. I highly recommend working with these professionals — we'll definitely do so again.”

Nikki Marston (1991 BEHS Class Reunion)

“Thank you for playing at our reunion! You guys were amazing...as always!!! Such a blast!”

Gina Valliere

“For our special day we were insistent on having live music. Being byproducts of 90s alternative music and suckers for nostalgia, we contacted Hello Newman, a band we frequently saw playing around Portland. They were incredibly accommodating, responsive and collaborative through the entire process, they even played during the ceremony, and added personal a touch by playing a requested song. As weddings go, there were a few snafus but the band kept the party going without missing a beat. Has a band ever got an encore at a wedding? Well Hello Newman got two and they graciously played a few songs and our guests absolutely loved it. Friends and family always reflect on the band as one of the highlights of the evening (aside from their favorite couple getting married of course). We can't thank them enough for making our day that much more special.”

Stephen and Ashley Crowley

“Thank you guys so very much for playing our engagement party! We have gone to your shows for years and have so many great memories. Thank you for adding today to that list of great days! You guys are awesome!”

Kristina and Eric

“Hello Newman is one of the best bands that have graced our stage. Their talent is only exceeded by their energy and enthusiasm. I would have them back if they weren't so busy!”

Jack Scannell (Program Director, Point Sebago)

“Hello Newman is THE band to have. Every single time they come to Rockland they pack the place — everyone comes out to see them perform. They are true entertainers, crazy talented musicians, and just so much fun to have. If I asked any one of my patrons who their favourite band is "Hello Newman" would be it by a landslide”

Bree Chase (Owner, Myrtle St Tavern, Rockland)

“We've all stumbled into Bull Feeney's some fateful night, whether it be from exhaustion, from friends tugging you endlessly forward, or for more indulgent reasons. The end game is often the same; we wanna party! And Hello Newman can help with that. With a name which tugs on our nostalgic, Seinfeld-loving heartstrings, Hello Newman bring cover after cover from our youth direct to our ears and out of our mouths. Always bringing in a crowd, Hello Newman has been delivering Portland a steady flow of sound since 2009. Go ahead, travel down memory lane, dance til your feet ache, and don't forget to make the floor shake!”
