Hank Lane Music Wedding Review: The Ernest Mills Band


My husband and i just wanted to tell about the wonderful job The Ernest Mills Band did at our daughter’s wedding this past Saturday night. They played all the songs we requested, they were professional and amazing. Everyone danced all night long. We heard repeatedly from all of the guests what an amazing band, all asked who they were, including the catering director! I am sure you will get requests for him as a result of this.

Please share this with The Ernest Mills Band, and again we cannot impress how great they were!

New York Times Celebrations: The Frank Simmons Band

Dear Kim,

Let us commend the Hank Lane organization for the beautiful, meticulous and energetic musical job you did during for eery minute of our daughter’s glorious wedding reception. Many of our guests remarked that every aspect of the wedding from start to finish on a scale of 1-10 was an 11. We believe and attribute every vendors hard work to making this success possible. But wish to highlight Frank Simmons and his incredible group who kept everyone dancing and upbeat throughout the evening. We can only give Kim Kaufman, Michael and  The Frank Simmons Band the highest remarks possible. A thank you from my wife Cindy, our daughter Samantha, our new son-in-law Josh and myself. If we can give you a rave review for future business it would be our pleasure for a job so well done. We’ve enclosed a New York Times article piece that appeared in the New York Times Sunday Styles Vows column on the bride and groom.

Best regards and continued success,

Jay and Cindy Gutterman

Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception: The Marcus Reid Band

Hi Marcus,

Just wanted to let you know that you and your band were absolutely awesome. All my guests loved you guys. I still have no feeling in my toes, they are NUMB and BLEEDING from all the dancing I did. I had a blast and so did Pete and all the guests said that The Marcus Reid Band was awesome. Everyone said best wedding ever. Thank You so much and please extend this to all the band members.

Awesome Awesome Awesome Awesome,

Danielle and Peter Fazio

Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception: The Marc Koslowe Band

It was spectacular! The Marc Koslowe Band were so so good! People were dancing the whole night and so many guests said it was the best wedding band they’d ever seen. My dad said it reminded him of the old Philadelphia soul bands he used to see in the 60s (and that’s probably the biggest compliment he could give).  Jessica and I had such a blast. Marc was also incredible at the ceremony and the cocktail hour. Everything was just perfect. Thanks so much to The Marc Koslowe Band, and thank you for all your help arranging everything! We couldn’t be happier!

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

Hi Ian,

Thank you so much for leading us to The Frank Simmons Band. They were AMAZING!!!!! We danced all night long and EVERY single one of my guests said they were the best band they’ve seen. Frank was so pleasant and all of the band members were so talented and energetic. They really made my wedding perfect and unforgettable and words can’t express how pleased Ron and I are…but we will definitely try by writing some reviews and recommending them to everyone we know. Hopefully we’ll can request them again in the near future :)

Thanks again,

Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception: The Marcus Reid Band


I wanted to send you an email now that I am finally settled into married life.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank The Marcus Reid Band for playing at our wedding on June 27, 2014.  Mike and I were blown away when we first heard you in the office back in November by recording.  Can I just say that the night of our wedding you blew away our expectations that we had coming into the day!  I can’t tell you how many of our guests told us how awesome the band was and also it was the best band they have ever heard at a wedding.  It certainly made us feel really good.  We talked you guys up to no end when everyone asked us during our engagement and you didn’t let us down.

I am sure you can tell that our family and friends like to have a good time from that night as well as Mike and I! I never saw that dance floor empty and you guys interacted with our guests in the coolest way!  They loved it!  Mike and I didn’t want to leave the dance floor!  When shirts come flying off including yours at the end of the night you know it was a great wedding!

You won’t have to worry that when people ask us for a band recommendation we will tell them no one else but The Marcus Reid Band! I heard my husband even asked you if you do home parties as we throw a summer bash every year at our house and he said you do.  He is already talking about it :)

Thank you for allowing us to act crazy and enjoy our night and playing along with us.  I hope we were a fun crowd for you and didn’t disappoint!  I honestly can’t thank you and the band enough.  You guys made the night and you gave Mike and I a wedding we will never forget!  We sincerely thank you.

Hank Lane Wedding Reception Review: Frank Simmons Band

Thank you both so much for supporting Jarrod and I through this process. The Frank Simmons Band seriously BROUGHT THE HOUSE DOWN. All anybody could talk about was how amazing they were. Seriously. The band members were so amazing. The vocal ranges from Arianna Grande to Bruce Springsteen to Rolling Stones, to Phish- does it get any better? I can’t stop thinking about what a magical night it was and how much you were apart of it. The band not only sounded amazing, but they totally were flexible (dancing in the crowd-freakin awesome!) and letting us on stage (best moment ever). Thank you so much. Please let us know if you ever want a reference. We will post a review soon.
