Hi Stephanie – I’m back in DC catching up and still glowing about the wedding! I think we all felt it was a wonderful and special evening and Pete Saunders and the band (both musicians and singers) set the tone from the very beginning. They did a beautiful job right from before the ceremony on. They are all superb at what they do, they gauged the crowd beautifully, and the song selection and pacing were perfect. Cat and Mike felt truly celebrated by the music and I danced all night long!
In fact, I’ve had dozens of compliments about the wedding so far and every single person has mentioned the music and said it was the best band they’ve ever heard at a wedding. Many many thanks for all you did to help make it such a success!
Dear Hank Lane Music:
We wanted to write to pay our respects to the band that played at the Englander wedding Last Saturday, April 30, at Buttermilk Falls.
In a word, they were awesome! Great musicians, great musical range, great music. From the Monkeys, to Motown, to the Stones, to rap- and most things in between. And they nailed it. True professionals. And they were great fun as well- entertainers, who were clearly enjoying what they do. Also, we loved the fact that there were enough musicians that they could stagger their breaks-and keep the music going almost continuously. They received compliments form everyone. Please pass this along to the best band ever.
Lindsey and I just got back from the honeymoon which was the perfect amount of time to digest how much of an impact your INCREDIBLE performance made on the entire wedding. It is hard to put into words how much we appreciated you and the band at the wedding. We both cannot get over how much of a positive impact you and the band had on that night – the dance floor was always packed! You were without a doubt the best band we could have hope for: music selection was always on-point, you all looked great, and of course sounded fantastic. We could not recommend you enough to everyone that has been reaching out asking who you were and how to get in touch.
Outside of the band, you personally were instrumental in “MC-ing” the night and keeping everything on time and providing perfect transitions into dances, speeches, and pictures. Lindsey and I keep saying how effortless the night was for us because we had you orchestrating the schedule. We cannot thank you enough for taking the wedding to a new level of awesome. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you ever need a recommendation, we have only the best things to say!
Thanks again for everything Mike!
We cannot thank you enough for what was a magical night at our daughter’s wedding….and the Mike Herman band made the entire night. The music was spectacular throughout the entire evening….from the cocktail party to the entire four hour reception….and with no breaks! I have never heard a classier band with tighter music, outstanding vocalists, perfect song selection (old and new), and an energy that was contagious throughout the room. It was a truly professional, first-class performance, from the sound of the music to the “look” and personality of the each band members. The biggest question of the night was “Where did you find this band?…..they’re much too good to be from Florida.””
On a personal note, many thanks to you for always being available throughout the planning process and taking calls from our daughter leading up to the wedding. You were also the perfect “MC” for the wedding. It is clear that you take great pride in the band, and your attention to detail, your service-oriented manner, and of course your incredible talent made this a truly special evening for all.
Thanks again Mike….you ‘da man!
“…how could we possibly put into words how amazing FRANK SIMMONS and his band are”
“… we can’t thank Frank and Hank Lane enough for helping to make it such an incredible night for us and everyone else there.”
“All of our guests are still talking about Pete’s band….”
“We had an incredible experience with his band.”
“We went with The Michael Hart Band and could not have been happier…”
“One of our best decisions was to go with Michael Hart.“
My Husband and I got married on November 21st, 2015. We are huge music lovers and we knew we would be picky when it came to selecting a band for our wedding. We are more than happy to say that our overall experience at Hank Lane and with the Clara Jordan Band exceeded all of our expectations! We were so nervous for some of the newer music to be played by a live band, but the band played it great and it sounded just like the radio version. Clara Jordan Band definitely brought such professionalism and experience to the night, along with such high energy! We would definitely recommend the band!
Thank you for all at Hank Lane who helped us along the way! Stephanie you were a great help and thanks for dealing with all of our questions.
