Hank Lane Music NYC Wedding Band Review: The Pete Saunders Band

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

Hi Stephanie – I’m back in DC catching up and still glowing about the wedding! I think we all felt it was a wonderful and special evening and Pete Saunders and the band (both musicians and singers) set the tone from the very beginning. They did a beautiful job right from before the ceremony on. They are all superb at what they do, they gauged the crowd beautifully, and the song selection and pacing were perfect. Cat and Mike felt truly celebrated by the music and I danced all night long!

In fact, I’ve had dozens of compliments about the wedding so far and every single person has mentioned the music and said it was the best band they’ve ever heard at a wedding. Many many thanks for all you did to help make it such a success!

All best,
Lucy

Hank Lane Music NYC Review: The Joel Young Band

Dear Hank Lane Music:

We wanted to write to pay our respects to the band that played at the Englander wedding Last Saturday, April 30, at Buttermilk Falls.
In a word, they were awesome! Great musicians, great musical range, great music. From the Monkeys, to Motown, to the Stones, to rap- and most things in between. And they nailed it. True professionals. And they were great fun as well- entertainers, who were clearly enjoying what they do. Also, we loved the fact that there were enough musicians that they could stagger their breaks-and keep the music going almost continuously. They received compliments form everyone. Please pass this along to the best band ever.

Hank Lane Music Florida: The Mike Herman Band Review

Mike –

Lindsey and I just got back from the honeymoon which was the perfect amount of time to digest how much of an impact your INCREDIBLE performance made on the entire wedding. It is hard to put into words how much we appreciated you and the band at the wedding. We both cannot get over how much of a positive impact you and the band had on that night – the dance floor was always packed! You were without a doubt the best band we could have hope for: music selection was always on-point, you all looked great, and of course sounded fantastic. We could not recommend you enough to everyone that has been reaching out asking who you were and how to get in touch.

Outside of the band, you personally were instrumental in “MC-ing” the night and keeping everything on time and providing perfect transitions into dances, speeches, and pictures. Lindsey and I keep saying how effortless the night was for us because we had you orchestrating the schedule. We cannot thank you enough for taking the wedding to a new level of awesome. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you ever need a recommendation, we have only the best things to say!

Thanks again for everything Mike!

Hank Lane Music Wedding NYC Band Review: The Mike Herman Band

Monday, May 9th, 2016

Mike—

We cannot thank you enough for what was a magical night at our daughter’s wedding….and the Mike Herman band made the entire night. The music was spectacular throughout the entire evening….from the cocktail party to the entire four hour reception….and with no breaks! I have never heard a classier band with tighter music, outstanding vocalists, perfect song selection (old and new), and an energy that was contagious throughout the room. It was a truly professional, first-class performance, from the sound of the music to the “look” and personality of the each band members. The biggest question of the night was “Where did you find this band?…..they’re much too good to be from Florida.””

On a personal note, many thanks to you for always being available throughout the planning process and taking calls from our daughter leading up to the wedding. You were also the perfect “MC” for the wedding. It is clear that you take great pride in the band, and your attention to detail, your service-oriented manner, and of course your incredible talent made this a truly special evening for all.

Thanks again Mike….you ‘da man!

Hi Kim / Stephanie,               

Ashley and I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and the awesome Hank Lane team and particularly Erik Marshall Band for making our wedding absolutely incredible.  The entire experience surpassed even our loftiest expectations and we truly had the most remarkable time this past weekend, thanks in very large part to the amazing performance of the Erik Marshall Band. 

 

Erik Marshall Band literally rocked the castle and had the dance floor jam packed from beginning to end.  Ashley and I never danced so hard or had as much fun as we did partying to the music on Saturday night.  Our family and friends literally danced the night away to the point where they were all hurting the next day.  In fact, Ashley’s stepdad’s calves were so sore from all his dancing, he was basically immobile on Sunday – that’s how much he partied and loved dancing to the awesome music of the night.  And the same can be said of my mom who had trouble walking the next day, as she can’t remember a night where she danced for as long or as hard as she did the night of the wedding… and she is not a partier, but Erik Marshall Band kept her on her feet!

 

Everything we had hoped for and imagined at our wedding came true, and we were most focused on the music and making sure our guests had a fun night.  And our guests absolutely raved about Erik Marshall Band and I cannot even tell you how many inquiries we’ve received from friends and families since the wedding asking who the band was.  The resounding response from everyone at the wedding, even from our most difficult, discerning guests who never seem pleased, was that Erik Marshall Band was the absolute best band they have ever heard. 

 

Derek and Chandler came out on the floor at times and rocked Journey, to the point where Ashley even grabbed the mic and started singing.  I ended up on stage at the end jamming to Eddie Money.  And the list goes on and on for all the wonderful memories we collected that night.  Erik Marshall himself was very hands on, checking in with us before about what we do when we hit the dance floor after our entrance. He also checked in periodically later about the specific folks who were giving speeches so as to map out the night and schedule of music.  Professional, classy, talented and just outright awesome … that’s our view of the Erik Marshall Band and our entire experience with you both and the Hank Lane team. 

 

It really meant everything to us to have you and your team, and ultimately Erik Marshall Band, as part of our wedding, so from the very bottom of our hearts, thanks again for really making our wedding night the most magical and unforgettable night of our lives. 

 

All the best,

Eric & Ashley
