“We chose the Pete Saunders band to play at our wedding and they were absolutely phenomenal. From the minute we met with Justin in the Hank Lane NYC office where he showed us a bunch of videos of the bands, we knew we were in the right place. They totally made us feel at home…”

Thank you so much for everything! The wedding was absolutely amazing and I am still hearing from everyone how much they loved my band! It was a full on dance party, just like I wanted and everyone had a blast! Thank you for also being so easy to work with, playing all of my must-haves (I know we had a lot and appreciate you getting them all in) and even playing songs that were so new I didnt think you would be able to like the Robin Thicke one! The wedding was amazing and a big part of that was you guys!!
Thanks again and know I will recommend your band to all of my friends!

Just wanted to let you know how amazing Pete and the crew were!!!! Just wonderful!! We couldnt have been happier.
They made the night such a success, everyone was on the dance floor the ENTIRE night…..we even cut out the cake cutting because everyone was having such a great time!
All the musicians he brought were so incredibly talented and the brass added so much..especially that trombone..hahah:):) The cocktail hour music was also so cool, although I dont think these people appreciated how truly wonderful the singer was…but i did!!!!!
Thanks again Spencer for being a fun part of this all. Please also make sure Pete knows how happy we truly were!

We just wanted to thank you again for the outstanding performance you and your band gave at our daughter and son-in-law¹s wedding recently. When
we first met you, they presented you with their wish for you to perform some unique music for their ceremony. We were so pleased that rather than suggesting something else, you embraced the challenge with enthusiasm. The day of the wedding the special music was executed flawlessly, and it really made the ceremony so special for the bride and groom. We can’t imagine a better compliment to give to any band leader than to say that a full set of table pictures was impossible, since people were on the dance floor all night long! The dance floor was still full even as your extended performance time drew to a close.
You were a very good listener at our preliminary meeting, and followed each of our requests with regard to music, speeches, and timing of events. But more than that, your experience and talent enabled you to “read our crowd” perfectly, and play a great and balanced mix that got the party going and kept it going all night long. The quality of musicianship of your band was excellent, and the singers were extraordinary. What we particularly enjoyed was that you got the decibel level spot on. The sound filled the room, but you could still have a conversation.
Lastly, we would just like to say what an absolute pleasure it was working with you. We could not have asked for a nicer or more cooperative individual. We sincerely hope to have the opportunity to work with you again.

Adam and I and our families cannot begin to express our gratitude for your amazing presence at our wedding Saturday night. You and your band were fabulous from the moment the party started to the second the party ended. Besides the rave reviews from everyone in attendance, Adam and I felt as if each song was better than the next, truly hitting on every genre and reaching out to every guest! The dance floor was packed the entire time, with our friends, family, parents, parent’s friends, and grandparents!
When we sat down with you a few weeks ago, we were so impressed by the individual attention you gave us, focus on detail, professional advice, and genuine sincerity and enthusiasm about being a part of our big day. Following that, you set aside time for a personal phone call to review details and toss around ideas. You were always available and rapidly responded to my emails in the final days leading up our wedding. Not to mention your continued attention and care during the reception, as you double checked details to ensure names/order of events were correct. You truly did an impeccable job.
We could not be more grateful that Kim led us in the perfect direction to make our wedding day the most memorable day for us! She was so supportive and helpful when we first came in with our requests. She made a perfect match between us and your band!
Adam and I cannot wait to watch our wedding video so we can try to recount every song. Do you by any chance have a playlist from the night? I can’t say it enough, EACH SONG felt custom tailored to our crowd and ensured constant dancing and singing! Please feel free to provide my information to anyone considering your band, as I am eager to share my reviews with everyone!
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding night what it was. A most joyous, exciting, entertaining evening was had by all!

Firstly, my apologies as this thank you is very past due. Although I hate to make excuses, I was sadly very sick shortly after the wedding with pancreatitis and am just now on the mend — so we hope you excuse our tardiness!
Michael and I just wanted to express our gratitude for the tremendous job you and the entire band did for our wedding celebration. We received rave reviews about the band (people were talking about you guys all day at brunch on sunday) and Michael and I had the best time ever on the dance floor. We couldn’t have been happier with our band selection and appreciate everything you did to customize the evening for us and play what was requested. Please extend this thank you to everyone in the ensemble!

Jason and I just got back last night from our honeymoon in Greece. We couldn’t stop talking about our wedding. We wanted to thank you and your band again for being a huge part of the reason why our wedding was so incredible.
Everyone raved about the music and it was so wonderful how the songs kept everyone dancing all night long. Many people didn’t have dessert because they didn’t want to leave the dance floor! Your band just created a great environment for all of our guests.
We will certainly highly recommend your band to any of our friends that are planning weddings!
Thank you again so much!

I wanted to shoot you a quick note to say how happy and more than overjoyed by the services of Hank Lane. My wife and I were extremely happy (as were every guest) with how terrific and fun Pete and band were throughout the night – they truly rocked the party! In addition Pete met with Becky and I and really worked meticulously to make us comfortable with the arrangements, music selection and the sequence of events…this really made things even easier for us – one less thing to worry about. Mike was terrific in following up with us and keeping us apprised of payments, updates and progress throughout the planning process. We could not have been happier with Hank Lane…one regret was not having them play for 8-hours straight!
Thank you again for putting together the right team to work with us!

I am writing to thank you on behalf of the entire family for all you did to make Elina and Michael’s wedding so fabulous. From the initial meeting with the bride and groom to the actual reception, the service you provided was exceptional. The Pete Saunders band was extraordinary. Each musician was enormously talented, even performing Greek music to the delight of the bride’s family.Pete Saunders selected perfect sets, appealing to every taste and keeping the dance floor packed with our guests.Two weeks after the event I am still getting phone calls from friends and family members remarking how phenomenal the band was. The bride’s mother said her family had never been to an event with such amazing music. We can’t thank you enough for your part in making this day so special.
