Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception Review: Pete Saunders Band

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Hi Kim,

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help setting up the band for this past weekend!
We had such an amazing time and the Pete Saunders Band was just fantastic!
So glad we went with them, every guest said how amazing they were!
Although I am glad the wedding is now over and everything calms down a little, I kind of wish we would have more events to be able to have them! Really fantastic!

We just want to tell you how incredible the Jeff Lubin Band was Saturday night!  It was a magical evening for us and the resounding opinion was that Jeff and the band were the highlight! Please pass on our sincerest thanks for making our night so special.

We would love to have a copy of the set list if you could send it to us.

Thank you and all the best,

Samantha & John-Claude

Hank Lane Music in The New York Times Sunday “Styles” Section: Erik Marshall Band

Monday, January 19th, 2015

Congratulations, Julie and Lee! Entertainment provided by the Erik Marshall Band.

Erik – We wanted to quickly reach out and just say THANK YOU! You and your band were absolutely amazing, even better than what we saw at Alex’s wedding (ok, I’m biased). I have spoken with 20+ individuals over the past day who have all said that this was the best band they have ever heard at a wedding.

One person today said they could see themselves sitting and just listening to them at a concert – and across a wide spectrum of music, not just one genre. Another said that they have not been to a wedding in years where so many people were up dancing and just having a good time. There was chatter with the folks I work with today who all said they have never seen a wedding band keep people as engaged and sound so good… that even the stiffest individuals were dancing (oh and they loved the violinist).

So thank you – this exceeded even our highest expectations. I do make sure to give Alex Gross the credit for being the ones to find you, I just copied and this was far better than his! We couldn’t have asked for anything better…

I agree with everything Lee said- thank you!!
Our night was perfect beyond perfect and it wouldn’t have been nearly as spectacular without you and your team. “I don’t dance” was the perfect song for us because it was clear that even after multiple dance lessons, we both still do not, and should not, dance. We didn’t want the night to end- thank you again for a spectacular evening.

Hank Lane Music New Jersey Wedding Reception Review: Russ Bennett Band

Thursday, January 15th, 2015


Hard to believe that it has already been 2 months since our wedding but the holidays seem to make time fly.  We wanted to thank you again for making our wedding, from start to finish, as memorable and amazing as it was.  Every person we talk to says the same thing: “That was a great wedding.  That band was amazing!”  The Russ Bennett Band had our entire wedding dancing from the moment we entered that reception room to the last chord.  Elaine and I knew that we wanted a band that would rock and you guys exceeded our expectations.  And the fact that you played Nirvana – AWESOME!  Again, thank you so much for making our special day that much better and hope to see you at another wedding soon (the couple would be lucky to have you guys)!

Hank Lane Music on Westminster Hotel’s Blog: The New Top Trends in Wedding Entertainment

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Check out this great post from our friends at the Westminster Hotel in Livingston, NJ! Our own Ian Magid offered up his best insight into the newest trends in wedding entertainment. For your cocktail hour, Ian suggests “an acoustic rock duo or trio playing during the cocktail hour, letting you expand from  traditional classic music to play contemporary rock songs that everyone loves, but that not be best for dancing, like Crash and Satellite. It’s like MTV Unplugged for your wedding”.

Hank Lane Music Wedding Review: Joel Young Band

Monday, December 29th, 2014


Me and Laura just wanted to say that the Joel Young Band did an amazing job. Literally every person commented how good the band was. They really made the wedding that much more fun. Please pass this along to Joel and crew as we don’t have his email but they were awesome. Also would like to thank Marcus for recommending them for us to use as they were clearly the right pick. We will absolutely recommend Hank Lane to any one looking for a band  everything from the initial meeting to last night was very professional and well done. Thanks again we had a great time
