Hank Lane Music & Co. at The Knot Gala 2013 at The New York Public Library

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Last night was the long-anticipated and spectacular annual Gala hosted by The Knot. Industry professionals from far and wide were in attendance to celebrate Bridal Fashion Week and be rewarded for their hard work. Hank Lane Music had the honor of providing entertainment for the evening, including DJ Allison Kay of More Than Music, a “Rock of Ages” tribute band, and several other ensembles. Henry Marks Agency band leaders Bobby Attiko and Kevin Osborne also performed. Special thanks to Fusion Lighting, for tricking out the enormous event space to create the perfect ambience, Dane Wright, and Creative Games Inc. for creating an innovative live Instagram feed projected onto screens throughout the library. Over 1,000 guests were in attendance, including Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici of The Bachelor, Randy Fenoli of Say Yes to the Dress, and Pnina Tornai, wedding dress designer extraordinaire. 12-foot mannequins modeling wedding dresses, designed by Gala planner and celebrity wedding planner Brian Worley of YourBASH!, decorated the space.

The Knot PR Director, Carly, gave us a glowing review. Thank you Carly, and everyone else on The Knot team!

Harris & Marcus,

Where do I begin? Last night literally KICKED ASS. Everyone had the best time and it was due to your entertainment on every level. The music was on another level – everyone gave 10000000000% and you could tell. From Rock of Ages to Bobby to the horns coming down the stairs, it was just unreal. And the lighting, the video wall, Instagram feed, and videos literally just sealed the deal to a perfect entertainment  experience.

I can’t thank you both enough for working with us to make this a dream experience. This party was by far our best gala and a full on party because of your enthusiasm, energy, and amazing talent. I look forward to working with you both in the future.


Carly Zipp, PR Director, XO Group Inc., The Knot

And a note from event designer Brian Worley:

“I should be sleeping, but I am still on a high from last night’s event and have not come down yet!  Honestly, there are no words to describe what you and your team pulled off last night!  Truly a fantastic evening of entertainment and y’all blew everyone away!  I want to thank you for the bottom of my heart for pulling out all the stops and just nailing what will be VERY difficult to beat in the future!  You have the most incredible team and such a huge array of talented performers!  I look forward to working with you many times in the future!  Y’all really ROCKED it out!

Deat Steve,

Seth and I just wanted to thank you so much for being a part of our wedding. Our parents couldn’t be happier with our band selection- though I think my father was happy from the time he found out you uncle works right down the street from him/ two months later people are still talking about our band. Thank you again for making our day feel so special-the band was fantastic-we look forward to seeing you again soon.


Lauren and Seth

p.s. Thank you also again for all your help with Fusion. Marcus was great and we got everything we asked for.

For those of you who follow the Real Housewives of New York spinoff Bethenny’s Getting Married? (and quite frankly, who doesn’t?!), the big day has finally arrived.  It’s time to see if party planner Shawn Rabideau can pull off the perfect wedding for Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy.  Tune in as Hank Lane’s Michael Hart Band rocks the wedding reception at the Four Seasons with lighting by Fusion Lighting.  And see if your big questions are finally answered…

Does the cake meet Bethenny’s expectations?

Is Cookie really the devil in disguise?

Is the champagne bucket really a porta potty?

Does Bethenny really rip off Shawn’s “produce section”?

Get the answers to these questions and see the wedding of the year tomorrow, July 8th, at 10PM EST on Bravo!
