A House on Fire

A House On Fire, the pride of Vermont, and one of the "funnest" and hippest bands in the northeast. If your from a city, A House On Fire can lend a regional touch to your Vermont area wedding while still be able to kick out an urban vibe. If you're from Vermont, AHOF can bring an urban touch along with their Vermont soul and vibe. You ask, Is it possible for a band to eloquently and convincingly play music across, pop, dance, reggae, rock, hip hop, country, R & B,  jam, and soul, genres? AHOF delivers that authentic Vermont soul and feel, yet are able to pivot on a dime and deliver a killer urban vibe. Wrap that up with 7 great voices and you have yourself an extraordinary band, and a singular experience. The AHOF song list is always topped with hip, recognizable, dance tunes, but there is a tremendous depth to the tune list, as well as the musicianship necessary to recreate the music convincingly. AHOF looks to have every audience dancing and partying like crazy, and every once in a while find themselves with a tear in their eye as the band brings out the emotion of the moment. With A House On Fire the accent is on making your event as fun and memorable as possible, bringing everyone together in celebration, through music.  Weddings and functions can be, “cookie-cutter affairs”, AHOF makes them personal and special, and always creates an event that is memorable. AHOF instruments include; tenor sax, baritone sax, trumpet, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, banjo, ukulele, bass, drums, keyboards, synth bass…..and those 7 voices.

When I say there are not enough words to thank you, I truly mean it. Accolades kept pouring in for House on Fire throughout the evening and have continued ever since..... "fantastic, best band, love them, awesome " to name just a few. I was asked a number of times where are you from... my response was local. I could tell by the reactions people were surprised that a band of your quality is a Green Mountain gem. We are thrilled to have found you ! So Hans, please let every one of your band members know how much we loved each moment of their music and singing!!! It brought the whole evening " over the top". Your energy, enthusiasm, and sheer excellence were reflected in your connection to the family and friends dancing our hearts out and our feet off!! Again ... we thank you endlessly. I so appreciate you sharing with us that your band members enjoyed the experience too. They went above and beyond to make Caroline and Kevin's reception an experience that will resonate with all of us for the rest of our lives.”
- Deb and Bob Burke Linda and Bob Gay Wedding @ All Souls Interfaith Gathering 7/15/17
We booked House on Fire for our June wedding and we could not have been more pleased. The band was amazing and so personable and lively. There wasn't a second that the dance floor wasn't packed. Hans and his team was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!! ”
- Sarah 8/28/17
My husband Jay and I just got married on 8/12/17 at the Whiteface Club and Resort in Lake Placid, and we can't say enough good things about Hans and his band A House on Fire!! The band had played at my sister's wedding a few years before, so we were thrilled when they said they had our date available but little did we know that they had since grown the band adding a few extra musicians and instruments and they were even better than we could have ever imagined. AHOF was hands-down the BEST decision we could have made when selecting a band for our wedding. We had the time of our lives out there on the dance floor alongside our guests, and everyone couldn't stop talking about how they were the best wedding band imaginable and totally ROCKED the wedding. The best part from a wedding planning perspective was how we didn't need to worry about a thing - AHOF caters to the crowd and knows exactly what to play to get the crowd going and keep everyone on their feet until past closing time. The band went above and beyond from the start - coming across the lake from Vermont to Lake Placid, playing at our cocktail hour as a generous addition to their set, and not even stopping for a single break during the reception. From start to finish, the band was truly unreal!! The only mistake you could make in our minds would be to not book AHOF for your wedding!! Hans and AHOF - we are grateful beyond words for all you did to exceed all our expectations and make our wedding the most memorable and special evening of our lives. You brought the house down and couldn't have done a better job! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!”
- Jay & Laura Schulhof August 12, 2017
Hi Hans, I can't thank you guys enough. We had so much fun dancing! Music selection was perfect and you guys made sure the dance floor wasn't empty for a moment! We're still hearing from friends and family raving about the band. I will go ahead and write an awesome review, as I know how helpful those can be to brides planning their wedding :-). Thanks again for everything! Brenna 6/18/17 ……………………………………………………………………………………….. Hans & A House On Fire - What a fabulous party on Saturday. Everybody absolutely LOVED the band and you were on fire!!!! We got comments from everybody praising you - the musicality, the wide selection, the great renditions…. You really put on a great show and kept the place hopping to the very end. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making this such a memorable experience - joy for a lifetime! Hope we see you again real soon! - George and Wenda June 4, 2016 ………………………………………………………………………… Hans & A House On Fire, We could not have been happier with your performance. You guys were just outstanding! Maddie and Scott are very, very pleased with the way everything went on Saturday, and we have received so many positive comments about the Band from our friends, relatives, and guests who attended the reception. You had mentioned that one of the Band's main goals was to keep folks engaged and on the dance floor. Your selection and mix of songs certainly did that, as the music you played was great to dance to and wonderful to listen to. Also, thank you for learning Cruisin' and God Only Knows for us. The Band did a great job on both songs, and it sounded like Smokey Robinson and The Beach Boys were in the room performing for us. Our sense was that the Band had a good time performing for us and enjoyed being with us on Saturday. Maddie, Scott, Julia and I feel so fortunate that our search for a band eventually led us to AHOF. From meeting you for the first at the Eastern Yacht Club, where you arranged for us to preview the Band, we all got the feeling that we were on the right track. This was certainly confirmed after Maddie and Scott subsequently had the chance to see the full Band in action at Jay Peak. You have been a pleasure to deal with throughout the process, and AHOF is a terrific band. Maddie and Scott definitely have some great memories of the wonderful celebration on Saturday, as do Julia and I, and one of the highlights was AHOF's outstanding performance. Thank you, Hans, for helping us make the Maddie and Scott's wedding day so special, and we all look forward to seeing another great AHOF performance in the not too distance future. Regards, David Soule May 15, 2016 ………………………………………………………………………………….. Hans, Your band, A House on Fire, was absolutely flawless, you guys were amazing. Everyone was blown away. We are so happy we had A House On Fire play our wedding, and could not have asked for a more kind, talented, or professional band! More than half of our guests made a point to come up to Brian and I with compliments on how great AHOF sounded! Jolene Bathalon Maple May 14, 2016 ………………………………………………………………………………………… Hans, You, and your band, were an integral part of what certainly was the best day of my daughter's life. For that, I owe you a tremendous "thank you". Your band did an excellent job of learning our two requested songs, and I think that that added a lot to the night-it certainly did for me. The horns were an excellent addition. Jaymie obviously enjoyed her day. She never sat down-except to eat. The quality and ability of the band can make or break an affair like this, and I wanted you to know that your band topped off what turned out to be a perfect weekend. Please share this letter with the entire band.They should know how pleased we are with the job that they did. Jim Gudelis 3/5/16 ………………………………………………………………………………….. Hans and AHOF! Thanks for an amazing time. You guys were nothing short of incredible! Love, Alex & AJ 10/17/15 …………………………………………………………………………………… Hi Hans, Thank you so much to AHOF for making our wedding night a memorable one. Your band is awesome and you rocked it. You were so accommodating with our requests and we are glad you entertained our guests on our special day. It was such a relief not having to worry about all of the details (the microphone, the emcee, the cocktail piano, etc). You delivered on every and all areas! All of the guests had positive feedback about your band. Definitely a highlight of the evening! You were so prepared and the sax and horn were such a nice touch. The keyboard player at the ceremony deserves kudos as well. He was awesome and really made the ceremony special. If we ever know of anyone getting married in the VT area- we will definitely send them your way. Thanks again and it was great working with you. All the best. Addison & Sarah 10/11/15 ……………………………………………………………………………………………….. A huge, huge, thank you from Kyle and I, both our families, and all of our guests-- Our wedding last night was phenomenal because of AHOF! They brought the energy level up, provided a fun and welcoming atmosphere and were accommodating, extremely talented, and very friendly. Our power went out at one point, and they somehow still kept everyone on the dance floor with the drums until the power was back. Fabian deserves an extra kudos for his unrelenting flexibility, ability to work with the brides requests, and his genuine love of music. I so appreciate all you did for my ceremony and wedding. Thank you Hans and AHOF for making our wedding so unique-- we had people from all over the country saying how great the band was. Our photographer said he's never seen so many people on the dance floor. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Dorrie & Kyle 10/10/15 -- Dorothy Kaye [email protected] (617) 671-8052 ……………………………………………………………………………………………. Hi Hans! You guys were wonderful. The band was a massive hit, and you kept people dancing the entire night. Just what we wanted. Thanks so much for everything! Paige Lester 10/3/15 ………………………………………………………………………………………………………. Hi Hans!! We absolutely loved the band and got great feedback from everyone!! We only wished we could have partied longer! Lol. I was all over the place that day, but once I was finally able to focus on dancing and cutting loose, I thought the music was incredibly on point. It was so nice of you to let Court's family play a couple songs... I know it meant the world to them. Thanks so much again for everything and we will hopefully track you down for a show soon! We liked your page on Facebook, so we typically see your updates in terms of shows, but let me know if there's anything in our neck of the woods on the horizon! Thanks again for everything! Weezie 9/26/15 ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. Hans, Your band was outstanding and we all danced throughout the night. Thank you for bringing such life to our celebration! I would be happy to be on your reference list. Hope you can be booked for our new year’s eve celebration at the Woodstock Inn! Gary S. Thulander President and General Manager www.woodstockinn.com O 802.457.6616 C 802-291-4913 …….. Hans, You guys were the best! Everyone we have talked to after the wedding has been raving about how awesome you guys were! We were all so sore from dancing so much ”
We hired A House on Fire to play at our wedding in August 2017, and in a word, they were fantastic. Hans stayed in touch with us prior to our event, and was always timely and clear with what information the band needed by when, what services they offered and how much everything would cost, which all meant no surprises on the big day. On the day of the event itself, they arrived on time, and were nothing but professional and friendly from setup. The music itself was great - we can't recommend AHOF enough given the variety of music they play and how incredibly well they play it, the band's high energy, their flexibility to deal with day of requests and their overall ability to get people on the dance floor. Many guests let us know the next day how much fun they had that night, and we think that is largely a testament to how well AHOF played. Thanks Hans and team! ”
- Mike and Stephanie Brocks 8/19/17
Hans and AHOF far exceeded our expectations. Hans was so easy to work with and he listened to all of our requests/suggestions and was able to make our reception extremely personal. We had a friend sing our first dance and he was more than happy to work with her to make it perfect. My wife performed guitar and sang at the reception, and the band welcomed her with open arms up on stage. The band even dedicated a song "A Natural Woman" to the both of us :) Our guests loved the band so much they started chanting "one more song, one more song" and Hans and the band did not even think twice about playing another song to keep the party going. In working with Hans, we have formed a friendship and we hope to stay connected in the future. Thank you for your help in making our wedding absolutely perfect! We have had multiple guests tell us it was the best wedding they had ever been to - and we know a lot of that had to do with the music by AHOF. Thanks again. You are awesome!”
- Jill & Belle Mountain Top Inn, August 14, 2017 (Monday wedding!)
We could not have been more pleased with A House on Fire! They sounded amazing and the dance floor was packed from the first song to the last. I can't tell you how many people have already asked us who our band was because they knew of friends and family looking for a band for their weddings. Thank you so much for being such an amazing part of an unforgettable day for Katelyn and I”

- Jamey & Katelyn 6/10/17 Wedding at Barnard Inn, VT
Booked this band for our January 7, 2017 wedding in Lake Placid, NY and we have SO MANY good things to say! We are from Southern CT throwing a wedding in Upstate NY, so we had never heard the band in person. We booked based on the great reviews, some awesome videos/recordings, and their impressively long and varied song list. Hans (who heads things up) was extremely communicative and very receptive to our specific needs (very detailed song requests for what we were going to walk out to, cut the cake to, first dance/parent dances etc.). Everything went off without a hitch and they perfectly nailed doing a seamless mix of classic rock, top 40s, and more eclectic Phish/Grateful Dead/reggae (which is the stuff we’re into!). Everyone raved about how great they were and how unique and fun the music selection was (not your typical top 40 wedding stuff… which was EXACTLY what we were going for!). They also went way out of their way, not only by coming from Burlington, VT to Lake Placid, NY on a frigid, snowy day, but by bringing their acoustic drum set and by letting my husband’s band from back in the day do a few songs at the end. Plus, everyone was so nice, so enthusiastic, and clearly having a great time! Book them!”
- Cait 01/14/2017
I booked this band without hearing them play live and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Our faith in the band was based on other reviews, the sounds clips they sent us from previous events, and our conversations with the man in charge. Despite being geographically challenged (Vermont band, NYC couple), Hans (the man in charge) made this process as stress free as possible. He was thoughtful not only to the type of music my fiancee and I enjoyed, but also the preferences of our parents and guests. EVERYONE was on the dance floor and I still receive compliments of how amazing our band was. They played all the right tunes and I am so grateful. Thanks so much to AHOF for helping to make our wedding memorable for all!”
- AnaLynn 02/08/2016
Hans, A slightly overdue thank you for helping make our wedding so wonderful. You and the band were fantastic! Everyone I have talked to has asked where we found you and commented on how great you all were. The music during the cocktail hour was perfect and when the dancing started... it didn't stop until you did! The dance floor and beyond were packed and Tracks at the Pitcher Inn was rocking! Please let us know if you are playing someplace local in the future as we would love to come see you. Also, feel free to add us to your list of references. ”
- Deb (Healey) & Rick Estabrook 6/25/16
You guys were the best!! Amazing!!Everyone loved it, from the oldest to the youngest. Can't thank all of you enough. I will most definitely be contacting you for other events and will highly recommend you to anyone in need of a band. Such a pleasure to meet you all.”
