Ernest Mills Wedding Band Review

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

Ernest_Mills“We just got back from our honeymoon and I wanted to touch base with you and let you know how thrilled we were with the Ernest Mills Band. Ernest and every single musician was phenomenal. Our guests raved about them and specifically Ernest and his amazing dance moves. They made our wedding so special and the only complaint we had was that we could not have 10 more hours of dancing!  I do not know if this is possible but is there any chance you can send us the set list from that night?  It would be so wonderful to have. Also, is there any chance Ernest and/or the whole band has a CD? We would love to have and listen to their music and even had guests ask. Our first dance song “Lucky” was amazing and we love their version better than the original! Not sure if this is possible but thought we would check. 

Thanks for everything!

Hi Stephanie,

Chris and I wanted to THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for an incredible wedding experience!

Boy… Ernest definitely delivered! Our guests showered and continue to shower the band with enormous amounts of praise. They cannot stop talking about how awesome it was for the band to memorize and rehearse difficult hip hop songs just for our event. And.. the lady’s voice was incredible. We all had a blast and are excited to watch our video to reflect back. Thank you, Stephanie, for assisting us and being so accommodating throughout the process. It was a pleasure to work with you. Please also thank Ernest for us and tell him we LOVED LOVED LOVED his performance!

We will make sure to refer Ernest’s band and Hank Lane to our friends and family in the future!

All our best,
Jaclyn and Chris

Just wanted to take the time to thank you for what turned out to be a wedding that exceeded our wildest expectations. The Ernest Mills Band was exceptional. The band recognized their audience and in doing so had the dance floor full the entire party. The rave reviews are still coming in a week later. I’m aware that for your organization it’s probably another day at the office, but please know that your team helped make our wedding one of the happiest and most joyful occasions that this family could of ever hoped for. [My friend] was in attendance and was very proud of his recommendation. Please forward my gratitude to the band if possible.

Thanks again,

Can you please pass along to the Ernest Mills Band that we had such a ball dancing to their music last night! They killed it! From the beautiful guitar at the ceremony, to our mash-up first dance (which was a HUGE HIT!), to an epic horah and mezinke dance! They were really such an awesome band and we were so happy to have them there on our big day! Ernest took a photo with us at the end of the night – we would love to get a copy of that if he can send it along to us through you!

Thanks so much for everything!

All the best,

Allie and Jason

Harris:  Once again your direction and brilliance in helping us select the perfect Hank Lane band for Bryn and Josh’s wedding at Engineer’s Country Club on November 1st was “spot on”. We’ve worked with you for close to 20 years and four spectacular affairs, and you haven’t disappointed us once.  In fact, every time we use your musicians it gets better and better and better.

Last night was no exception. The Ernest Mills Band ROCKED our guests for the entire night.  NO ONE, and I do mean NO ONE, sat in their chair, including Josh’s 83 year old grandmother!!

We started with the traditional Hora, and blew it out from there.  His range in music selection from contemporary Top 40 to Motown, to the Beatles and even Michael Jackson was amazingly stunning.  His ease to engage with our guests on the dance floor was simply FANTASTIC. He was in total control.  He is the consummate  professional.

As you know, from personally working with us for both Hayley and Bryn’s bat mitzahs, we expect the band to get everyone up on the dance floor.  Well, not only did Ernest and his team of great musicians and singers get that mission accomplished, but it was a continuous and all-night dance party.  And, I do mean continuous.  We never stopped for salad or intermezzo.  A quick break for dinner and dessert served on the dance floor kept the music pumping and everyone in a groove.

Just incredible.  As our guests were leaving we got compliment after compliment that this was one heck of a party.  Ernest made Paulette and me, Frank and Mindy look like geniuses.

Please extend our heart-felt thanks to Ernest for his magnificent performance. Bravo and congratulations to Hank Lane Music for an evening that Bryn and Josh will never, ever forget.

Best regards,

Gary and Paulette Ostrager

I am writing to say thank you to the Ernest Mills Band for playing our wedding.  The only complaints I’m getting is that our guests feet are killing them from 4 hours of non stop dancing to amazing music.  Ernest kept the party going all night, bringing high energy and incredible talent.  No matter what kind of genre the crowd was into, Motown, soul, classic rock, etc….Ernest Mills Band nailed it.  As far as my wife and I are concerned, there are no other wedding bands….this group is it.  Thank you Ernest Mills Band, and thank you Hank Lane!

Hank Lane and The Ernest Mills Band were the perfect choice for our wedding!  We wanted a band that kept our guests on the dance floor all night with a mix of crowd pleasers that focused on Top 40 hits, and Ernest Mills delivered.  From the moment we heard their recordings at the Hank Lane offices, we knew the band’s covers would sound as close to the originals as possible, and their high energy sound was what we were looking for.  What we didn’t expect was how far above and beyond that they would take it.  Their voice and musical talents were incredible, getting guests to applaud even during the dinner music.  And Ernest would work the crowd throughout the night to make sure everyone was having a good time.  He was especially attentive to me and my wife, coming over to us throughout the night to make sure we were happy with their performance, and ask if there were any songs or artists we wanted to hear more of.  From our easy, stress-free communication with the company’s staff leading up to the event, to the band’s fantastic performance on the night, working with Hank Lane & Ernest Mills was certainly a highlight of our wedding. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding band they had ever seen.  Thank you so much for making our dreams come true!

My husband and i just wanted to tell about the wonderful job The Ernest Mills Band did at our daughter’s wedding this past Saturday night. They played all the songs we requested, they were professional and amazing. Everyone danced all night long. We heard repeatedly from all of the guests what an amazing band, all asked who they were, including the catering director! I am sure you will get requests for him as a result of this.

Please share this with The Ernest Mills Band, and again we cannot impress how great they were!
