Who are The Ward Eights?

We are a band of nine friends, joined together in a common purpose: to make your party the most hip, most fun and most memorable event of the season.

Where are you based?

We hail from Boston, MA and perform all over New England. We originally formed in 2010 in Cambridge, where we worked together at Harmonix Music Systems, makers of the Rock Band and Dance Central video games.

What do you play?

Funk, soul, rock, hip-hop, pop, jazz and nearly anything else you can think of. With a three-piece horn section, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and both male and female lead vocalists, we cover a LOT of musical ground. Check out our song list, and feel free to make requests!
