On March 6th, 2014, the Michael Hart Band provided the music for the 27th Annual Babies Heart Fund Gala. This year’s event was held at the Pierre Hotel, and benefitted the Division of Pediatric Cardiology at Columbia University Medical Center. During the evening, special guest and Grammy winner Roberta Flack performed three of her songs, bookended by lively performances led by bandleader Michael Hart.
This coming Saturday, March 8th, 2014, The Woodbury Jewish Center (WJC) will be celebrating their reopening under Regal Caterers. Hank Lane Music has been collaborating with WJC since is opening in 1989, and our long-standing relationship with the temple has been an honor to uphold. We look forward to their continued success with Regal at the helm. The Gala that will be ushering in this new chapter will feature Hank Lane’s renowned Jeff Lubin Band, who will be rocking the house during a lavish evening of great food, music, and dancing. The founding members of WJC will be in attendance, and the occasion will also serve to honor special guest David Gaffner. Cheers to 25 years of excellence, may there be many more!
Lonny and I wanted to send you a quick note and hope you will pass it along to Marcus. Marcus and his band were absolutely amazing and really exceeded our expectations. We are so thrilled that you recommended them. Everyone is raving about how great they were. Thank you and The Marcus Reid Band for a tremendous job!

THE KNOT REVEALS HALL OF FAME OF BEST OF THE BEST IN WEDDING INDUSTRY
– First-Ever Wedding Industry Hall of Fame Pronounces Preeminent Vendors Across the U.S. –
NEW YORK (2013-2014) – Whether they’re trying to find the wedding dress salon with the best service in Philadelphia, the most creative wedding photographers in Los Angeles, New York’s top cake bakers or Miami’s hottest reception sites, engaged couples across the country want the inside scoop from real brides. The Knot Wedding Network (NYSE: XOXO), which is composed of the top two wedding websites, TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com, today announces the first-of-its-kind wedding industry Hall of Fame for the all-time best wedding vendors across the United States.
Comprised of winners of the annual Best of Weddings, a by-brides-for-brides guide to the top wedding vendors in 80-plus cities across the U.S., the Hall of Fame inducts wedding vendors who have won four or more Best of Weddings awards. This honorable list of more than 330 inductees includes less than 1 percent of wedding professionals.
We are proud to announce that Hank Lane Music has been rated by local brides and voted The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame.
“For the past seven years, WeddingChannel.com Reviews has been the definitive resource for our brides, providing them with unparalleled vendor recommendations directly from the tried-and-true experiences of fellow brides,” said Carley Roney, cofounder of TheKnot.com. “We’re beyond thrilled to induct our first-ever Hall of Fame, crowning the best of the best across the country, based on more than 700,000 reviews from real brides.”
We had the time of our lives dancing to the music of Michael Hart and his band on November 9, 2013 at the wedding of our children, Jamie and David. The “experience” was unbelievable and we still can’t get over the reaction we had during the evening and after the party was over. The wonder of it all continues as we watch and listen to our video of the kids wedding. Our guests felt like they were at a concert and the evening was spectacular. The musical selections were perfect and the performances were show stoppers. We don’t do music, but we sure can appreciate what we saw and heard. We were amazed by the band’s energy and can truly say that no one left the wedding disappointed, except for the fact that the evening had to end.
Thank you for making the evening perfect.
This Valentine’s Day, we want to share some of our favorite songs to celebrate the holiday – these are our favorite hits for any romantic occasion, from Frank Sinatra to Beyonce! Celebrate V-Day with us in person tomorrow at Francois Payard Bakery, where we will have a harpist playing at the West Houston location from 5:30-9:30pm. Wishing everyone a day of chocolate and romance!
