Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception: The Pete Saunders Band

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014


There are no words to express how happy we were last night with The Pete Saunders Band. They were, hands down, the best band we’ve ever heard (although maybe we are slightly biased). Seriously, the dance floor was packed all night and everyone throughout the evening was coming up to us to tell us how amazing they were. It was such a dance party!!! Thank you so much for recommending Pete to us and for helping to make our wedding the best night of our lives.

P.S. Please pass along to Pete :)

Thanks again,


Hank Lane Music Wedding Review: The Marc Koslowe Band

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Hi Stephanie!

So I have to say The Marc Koslowe Band were unbelievable during our wedding!! We have had so so many compliments from guests from how great the music was during dinner (they played pearl jam and rhcp!) to how much they rocked the dance floor afterwards! I don’t think they stopped playing once which was incredible! I also noticed at one point that they could tell a certain song wasn’t really energizing the crowd bc shortly after it began they transitioned into another song that was more of the speed of the crowd. They were also great sports about letting two of our friends who love singing get up on stage with them.

Everyone knows the band makes or breaks a wedding and we couldn’t be happier with The Marc Koslowe Band! We knew they’d be good, but they exceeded our expectations! Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know our music sense and help lead the band in the right direction for us.

And please, please send our sincerest thanks to the band – they made it a truly amazing evening!

I’d love to hear their thoughts on our wedding too (if they enjoyed themselves, etc.) ;)

Thank you again. If there is anything I can do for the band, etc. Please let me know!!



Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception: The Harris Lane Band

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Hi Harris,

Just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for making my wedding truly spectacular. The music was awesome! I am still getting phone calls from friends telling me that the Harris Lane Band was the best they have ever heard! The party would not have been the same without you and your band!

Thanks again!!!


Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception: The Joel Young Band

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Dear Ian,

Thank you for all your guidance in securing The Joel Young Band for Kate and Stephen’s wedding on September 6.  They were absolutely fantastic and greatly exceeded all expectations.  In short, they made the party fabulous.  The compliments from guests are still coming.

I was wondering if Joel might email us the song list from that night? We would love to have it as a keepsake.

With gratitude,

Nancy Latta

Hank Lane Music New Jersey Wedding Reception: The Russ Bennett Band

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

Hi Stephanie and Ian,

I apologize for the delay in this email, but I wanted to let you guys know how absolutely AMAZING The Russ Bennett Band was at our wedding at Pleasantdale Chateau on August 30th. Ryan and I are so glad that we ended up going with them- they were professional, played EVERY song that we requested (they even played two Santana songs, which was a HUGE hit with my Dad because he is a big fan), and most importantly, every single one of our guests raved about how amazing they were weeks after the wedding. If you could please pass along this to The Russ Bennett Band members, I would appreciate it.

It was a pleasure working with Hank Lane and we will certainly recommend them to everyone!

Thanks again,

Lindsay and Ryan Scopelliti

Hank Lane Music New Jersey Wedding: The Frank Simmons Band

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

Hi Ian,

Hope you’re doing well.

We just returned from our honeymoon and I wanted to pass along our VERY high praise of the Frank Simmons Band. We’ve been at weddings with a few Hank Lane bands and Frank blew it out of the water at our wedding! They were absolutely incredible.  It was a rainy and muddy backyard wedding but the energy that was present that night was amazing- and that’s due in large part to Frank and his band.  Please be sure to share our thanks and praise with him directly.

Thank you,

Marcus! Todd and I wanted to thank you for the excellent performance at our wedding.  The Marcus Reid Band was just so fantastic, I don’t think words can describe.  We were so beyond pleased.  We had the best time, EVER. You kept the party going the entire night, sang the best songs that mixed perfectly with the crowd.  You read the crowd just right.  I don’t think I left the dance floor once!

I had so many people who were floored, really were, by The Marcus Reid Band. They couldn’t believe how lively you were, how GOOD you were and how much you were able to match the vocals of the songs you sang.

Anyway, thanks again.  You made our night.

Hank Lane Music Wedding Review: The Dane Wright Band

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

The Dane Wright Band is unforgettable! We couldn’t be happier that we picked them. We had heard rave reviews about them from a friend and were so thankful that they were available and not booked when we started looking.

We were blown away. Their sound was absolutely incredible and they were so much fun.  We loved the band members coming out to dance with us and fill the room with energy. For weeks after, friends would email or call saying how great The Dane Wright Band was and that it was the best they had heard.  Thank you Dane for making our wedding day unforgettable- we are forever grateful for your talent!
