Hank Lane Music

Hi Ian!

I’m sorry for not reaching out sooner – I left Monday for another gala in Las Vegas so things have been busy!

I wanted to thank you guys for another great event on Saturday. The band was AMAZING as always. Everyone told us they made the event. They played awesome music, and kept the crowd on the dance floor all night!

You guys are always awesome partners on this event and we appreciate it!

Thank you so much!

Hank Lane Music Holiday Party Review: Frank Simmons Band

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

Good morning, Ian.

And thank you for a fantastic event – folks are raving about the band and from what I hear, they were chanting “one more song!” at the end of the night. Nobody wanted it to end. Hopefully we can all work together again on future events.

Thanks for everything and have a great weekend!

I wanted to reach out to you and let you know what a HUGE HIT the band was last night for the ETRADE party. I had several people ask if they could get their info; one lady is getting married and thought they’d be great for her reception. I passed out a few Hank Lane business cards for you after the event.

And once again, those guys were awesome.


Hank Lane Music Holiday Party Review: Pete Saunders

Good morning,pete saunders 11

The party was great and the band
was excellent. Quite a few people asked me about the band (we have a few newly engaged couples). When I mentioned Hank Lane they all weren’t surprised that it
‘s one of your bands. I’ll be surprised if they didn’t reach out to you. I will make sure I sent them your contact information. Please let me know if you need anything from me.
Thanks for everything. Something tells me we will be contacting you every year going forward :).

Have a wonderful holiday season and
we’ll be in touch.


Stay well,

Russ Bennet Band


“Our dance floor was jam packed from the second they started playing. they could not have been better. Russ Bennett was so great to work with – we had a number of special requests for the night of our wedding & they delivered perfectly on every single one! I cannot say enough amazing things about this band- they will play all kinds of music. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this band to anyone who is getting married or having an event where they want people to have a blast and be out on the dance floor!”

Dear Spencer,

This is just a short note to tell you how amazing Billy Stone and his musicians were on Saturday night. The wedding was taken to a higher level because of their magical musical presence.

Mr. Stone is a thorough professional and gentleman,besides being extremely talented.
I am grateful that he assisted me in my little performance and made it easier to accomplish.

Kenny Ford


Hi Everyone,

Matt and I wanted to let you know that we could not have been happier with Kenny Ford and his band at our wedding last weekend. We have had so many people tell us that the music was incredible – and it was! They sounded great, people never stopped dancing, and we loved all of their song choices.

We would be more than happy to give them a positive recommendation if any future clients are looking for one.

Have a great rest of the weekend- and thank you again for being so helpful throughout the whole planning process.

– Stef and Matt

Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception Review : Mike Herman Band

Hi Mike,

You beat me to an email! We are still recovering so I haven’t been in touch BUT everyone is raving about the band and wanting to know the Hank lane story. You really brought NY to Boca Grande which is exactly what I had wanted. Someone at the wedding mused, “they are definitely not from here” because you guys really do provide big time entertainment that is hard to find in vacation land.

I loved dancing with your band and you were so nice to welcome me on stage more than once- I don’t belong up there talent wise, but certainly enjoy it and so did my bridesmaids!!

You exceeded my expectations in every way and there is no better combination than an impressed bride and raving guests. I can’t take any credit for the talent of your band; but now 130 people more people know that Hank lane does not disappoint! My sister and I both credit our fun weddings to your company.

I hope you enjoyed your trip to Boca Grande and definitely hope to see you guys again!!

Very best,
Katie and Chip



Good morning to my INCREDIBLE team of vendors!!

I want to thank each and everyone of you for all that you did for Katie and Chip’s wedding this past Saturday

Hank Lane Music & Production – You and your band were OUTSTANDING! Your skills to keep the party going were amazing! It was a flawless evening thanks to you handling the crowd perfectly and they had a BLAST!! Thank you!!
