Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception Review: Howard Taylor Band

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

Hi Justin,

Hope you are doing well and getting excited for the holidays 🙂

We wanted to thank you again for all of your work with Howard’s group for our wedding!!!  We had such an amazing time and continue to get compliments on how much the band rocked.  I don’t feel that we had the chance to adequately thank Angel for KILLING it on the introductions — our guests really loved them but they would be NOTHING without Angel’s incredible delivery.  Please extend our thank you to him!!!!!

Also, not sure if you heard yet, but Mike had the opportunity to take the microphone and belt out Africa.  It was definitely a highlight of the night.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!

Warm regards,

Cory and Michael

Hank Lane Music Dinner Dance Review: Howard Taylor Band

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Hi Vicky,

Just wanted to thank you again for the fantastic effort and planning which made my 50th birthday party a great success. The Howard Taylor Band is a polished group of musicians who played tons of my favorite Michael Jackson music and other Motown hits. They even played background music for one of my family members who performed that night. The DJ Robert was very accommodating and kept the pace and the theme of the party alive. The mood of the party started off great with the stilt walkers and jugglers while the steel drum band warmed everyone up during the cocktail hour. Then the main act, Brazilian dance troupe, kicked off a frenzy of fun and dance which was so inviting that made everyone join in and dance.

We will definitely be using Hank Lane and More Than Music again and again.

Hank Lane Music Signs One of New Jersey’s Most Popular Wedding and Party Bands: The Howard Taylor Band formerly known as Cashmere Band.

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Hank Lane Music is pleased to announce the recent signing one of the most exciting dance bands in the Tri-State area, the Howard Taylor Band. While the name Howard Taylor may not be all that familiar, the band he leads, formerly known as “Cashmere,” is one of New Jersey’s most popular wedding and party cover bands. The band has been wowing audiences for nearly two decades under the leadership of bassist and founder Howard Taylor. Due to contractual obligations from the band’s former representation, the name “Cashmere” cannot be used by the group. As a result, band reviews may not be readily available just yet under the band’s new name.  However,

Howard Taylor

clients can be assured they are getting one of the New York/New Jersey area’s most experienced and top musical groups, that we have proudly re-christened the Howard Taylor Band in honor of the group’s leader and founder.

Howard and the band first began performing in clubs and resorts in the New York metropolitan area. During that time they also had the opportunity to open for national musical acts such as Blue Magic and Kool & The Gang and for some popular  comedians including Sinbad, Howie Mandel and Wanda Sykes at Caesar’s Resort. Specializing in Top 40, R&B, funk, soft rock, neo-soul, urban, smooth jazz, Motown and Oldies, the band prides itself on keeping its repertoire fresh and current with a healthy dose of the newest hit tunes from artists like Ne-Yo, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Usher, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Lady GaGa, as well as classics by Chicago, Steely Dan, Earth Wind & Fire and Michael Jackson. The band’s client list includes The New York Giants, NHL, MTV, NBC, ABC , American Cancer Society, The United Way, NJ State Police, Wells Fargo, NYC Housing Authority, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Newark Mayor Cory Booker and three New Jersey governors.
