Today marks Hank Lane Music’s 35th year in the music business. The company was founded in 1978 by veteran band leader and performer Hank Lane, his wife Deeann Cowart, and bandleader Marc Stevens when they opened Hank Lane Music & Productions in New York City hoping to make their mark in the private party industry. For now over thirty-five years, the concept behind Hank Lane Music has been to make sure clients could enjoy music performed the way it should sound as they celebrated their own weddings or other private personal, corporate or charitable events. Against industry practice, Hank believed the only way this could be accomplished was with “set” bands who worked together all of the time. Every Hank Lane Orchestra possesses a special blend of youth, elegance, and excitement, with each band being equally adept in all styles of music.
In 1987, Hank Lane expanded to meet the growing demand for DJ entertainment by forming More Than Music, a DJ and party entertainment service that offers hot young DJ’s, MTV style dancers, and party entertainers to their clients. In 1996, Hank Lane Music acquired Fusion Lighting, a lighting, event design, and audio-visual company, which visually enhances the performance of both the company’s bands and their DJ’s.
Today, Hank Lane Music is the exclusive music provider for many of New York’s leading hotels and catering facilities, with an impressive client list to match. Hank Lane Music is constantly expanding and adapting, and continues to serve as a model of innovation in the music industry.
Happy birthday, Hank Lane Music!
