Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception Review: Rainbow Room Orchestra

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013


Jeff and I wanted to drop you a quick note to say how fantastic the band was for our wedding last night. Everyone said how excellent they were, and they really made the night so fun for all of our guests. It was a pleasure working with you, and we would be happy to serve as a reference.

For Your Great Gatsby Themed Wedding or Party: The Rainbow Room Orchestra

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

The Rainbow Room Orchestra.

With the recent release of director Baz Luhrmann’s film of The Great Gatsby, we have been fielding a number of requests for an orchestra that can evoke the musical style and look of the great F. Scott Fitzgerald classic novel. Set in 1925 in a fictional Long Island town, the music of the Roaring Twenties is an important backdrop to the story. However, in this modern interpretation of the film the music slides back and forth between the 1920’s and today. With a musical soundtrack that had major contributions from Jay-Z, the music reflects the stylized past of the time period through modern beats. With art deco music stands and retro microphones the white tuxedo jacketed Rainbow Room Orchestra has both the look and sound for today’s modern dance party. Originally conceived when Hank Lane Music was the official musical director of Rockefeller Center’s world-famous and now closed Rainbow Room, the orchestra similarly is able to go back and forth from the Jazz Age sound to today’s contemporary music. Speak to one of our event specialists about how the Rainbow Room Orchestra can work for your next event.

Hank Lane Reviews: Rainbow Room Orchestra at Glenmere at Elizabeth and Ryan’s Wedding

Thursday, October 11th, 2012


We were just so genuinely impressed with the Rainbow Room Orchestra, from the vocals to the horn section to the rhythm section, everyone was fantastic. I can’t tell you how many people approached us not only on the wedding night itself but also pretty much every day since saying how much they loved the band. They read the crowd perfectly, and we were shocked (given the type of music we requested) at how many people, young and old, were dancing the night away. It was undoubtedly the most fun we’ve ever had on a dance floor. It was also so great to have Monica perform. That was so special to us. Thank you so much to Frank and the rest of the band for such a wonderful set. We hope to work with you again!

Dear Spencer:

Rainbow Room Orchestra was absolutely magnificent – we had a packed dance floor and the white dinner jackets were the perfect aesthetic accoutrement to complete our “Great Gatsby Wedding Extravaganza” – we really could not have planned it better.  Just a great way to celebrate!  Thank you for all of your help!
