Hank Lane Music “The Knot” Wedding Review: Marcus Reid Band

“Amazing, Amazing, Amazing. I wish we could experience this day over and over again just for the band! We worked with the Marcus Reid Band for our wedding…they were truly SPECTACULAR and were the highlight of our wedding. So many guests came up to us after saying they felt like they were at a concert … It was an absolute pleasure working with everyone, and still in awe of the talent of each band member. We would highly recommend the Marcus Reid Band!”

Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception Review: Frank Michaels Band


The Frank Michaels Band did an AMAZING job at our daughter’s wedding celebration last Saturday at The Harvard Club. They are top-drawer musicians and singers who drew praise from young and old, alike, and they had the dance floor filled to capacity virtually all the time. They exceeded our wildest hopes and expectations. Honestly, my wife and I -and the bride and groom- have never seen (or heard) anything like it at any event anyplace we’ve ever attended.

Your organization (and, you, personally, Stephanie) are a bunch of pros. We couldn’t be more pleased with the way you took us through the process and made us feel confident -from our first meeting right up until the last chord of “Don’t Stop Believing” at midnight on the 21st.

We are truly grateful and we are here if and when you need us to recommend the wonderful Frank Michaels Band -and the Hank Lane organization- to anyone and everyone looking for perfect satisfaction when it comes to finding the right musicians for a wedding celebration.

Please convey our thanks to the band. Those guys (and gal) rock!

Hank Lane Music “The Knot” Wedding Review: Dane Wright Band

“I cannot recommend a vendor more than Dane Wright Band from Hank Lane. I am two weeks out from my wedding and am still receiving emails and messages from friends and family praising and applauding this band. If i could do it all over again and give up the flowers, my dress and the venue for this band I would in a heart beat.”

Hank Lane Music New Jersey Wedding Reception Review: Frank Simmons Band

Hello Frank and Team:

I hope that all is well and that you’re having a great week.  Tressie and I just got back from our amazing two week honeymoon in Italy (Rome, Florence, Lake Como and Milan).  We had quite the vacation and are now excited to start this next chapter in our lives, as husband and wife.

Now that I am back, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for everything.  Our entire experience in working with the Frank Simmons Band and Hank Lane Music as a company:  from our initial meeting with Spencer where he was quick to work on a solution within our budget; to the communication process as we coordinated the logistics heading into the wedding; to our initial meeting with Frank and all our back and forth communications with him; etc. was a truly wonderful experience.

In particular, I want to give extra praise to Frank whose passion and energy was contagious and he truly made us feel like we were the most important wedding he was ever going to do.  He and Tressie had a bunch of back and forth emails on creative idea’s and they worked extremely well together.  From the 1st time we met Frank we knew we had made the right decision and we both took a big deep breathe knowing that the band was second to none.  Frank and his team’s performance on our wedding night did not disappoint!  I can not count the number of people who said some version of:  “Amazing wedding, who was that band!?”, “Best band I have ever heard at a wedding”, “The energy of your wedding was unbelievable; that band was great”, “You have to send me the name of that band”, and so on and so forth.  The Frank Simmons Band really brought their A+ game to our wedding and I greatly appreciate it.  As a company, Hank Lane Music did everything you said you would do and really went above and beyond for us. A true first rate experience!

We could not have had a better experience working with a band and we are so grateful that we found you. I’m here as a satisfied customer who wants to help out a great customer service business.

Thank you again.

We can’t thank you enough for creating such a wonderful musical ambiance for Lauren and Stan’s wedding.

Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception Review: Pete Saunders Band

“Dear Pete,

We cannot thank you enough for your band’s [Pete Saunders Band] stellar music-making at our wedding. We study and play music for a living and were blown away by the quality of what we heard – from the drummer through your virtuoso vocalists. Our friends and family – many of whom are also music professionals – could not stop commenting on “how incredible the band is”. You made our wedding a memorable party! Keep up the good work; we will recommend you to anyone who asks.

Jamie and Melanie”

Hank Lane Music New Jersey Wedding Reception Review: Joel Young Band

Hi Stephanie,

I wanted to send you a quick note from Bora Bora to let you know the Joel Young Band was incredible Saturday night! We have received so many compliments from friends and family and we have been fielding numerous requests from our engaged friends for their contact information. The band’s set list was amazing and their energy got everyone on the dance floor. We were told by numerous guests that they were the “best band they have ever seen”. So THANK YOU and please pass along to the band!



Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception Review: Michael Hart Band

Hi Harlan and Julie…we wanted to thank you for helping us select and put together our music for Lindsay and Michael’s wedding on June 6th. Lindsay and Mike really enjoyed meeting with Michael Hart to select the songs and flow of their reception, the Michael Hart Band absolutely delivered a great performance. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night. We heard many comments from our guests complimenting the band. Most guests were from the midwest and were very impressed.

The jazz trio also performed well, and it was a pleasant background while we enjoyed our cocktails and appetizers. The After Party DJ also did a great job, she kept the party going, and the young crowd (and young at heart) really enjoyed it.

We trust you will pass along our thanks and compliments to all the musicians, and we thank you all for being a part of Lindsay and Mikes wedding celebration.
