Hank Lane Music’s The Michael Hart Band: NYC Wedding Review

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

Hi Michael!

This is a bit overdue, but now that all the craziness following our wedding has died down, I just wanted to say thank you so much for making it the most amazing night of our lives.  I really think that so much of it can be attributed to the amazing performance that you and your band put on!  I can’t tell you how many people told us during and after wedding how great you guys were, and how at times, they were just watching you guys like they were at a concert.  Aaron and my main concern for the wedding — more important than the food, flowers, or anything else — was that people danced and had a good time, and largely thanks to you all, they definitely did!  I already had a friend ask me for your information so that she can pass it along to a friend : )  You remembered to play all the songs that were important to us, and just made it the most special night.

You guys are the best.  Please pass this along to the rest of your band as well!

All the best,

Jill and Aaron


NYC Wedding Band Review: Erik Marshall Band

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016


We are a bit tired right now but never too tired to thank you and your band for making last night a smashing success.  We were told countless times that you were the best band that people had heard… and this was a pretty sophisticated crowd. By all accounts, the wedding was among the best people ever attended, and you were a core reason.  Thanks again and speak soon.

New York City Wedding Band Review: Frank Simmons Band

frank simmons ww review

” We could not have asked for a better band than the Frank Simmons Band for our wedding. They were absolutely amazing! Our guests were on the dance floor the entire night and were constantly commenting on how awesome the band sounded! Most of the time you forgot that it wasn’t the original artists singing the songs, they were that good! Overall, they were very accommodating, organized, and easy to work with. We were beyond happy with them and would recommend them to anyone who asks! Music is one of the most important pieces of the evening and they truly made the party rock!!”

Wedding Wire Review: Russ Bennett Band

russ ww review

“We used Russ Bennett Band for our wedding on June 11th and it was one of the best wedding decisions we made for vendors. We went with Hank Lane after one of our friends used the company for their wedding and we loved the energy and style. After meeting with Russ we quickly saw that they would be a good match for our love for a variety of music types. It’s a pretty hands off process to set up your songs, announcements, etc. For someone like me who is extremely detail oriented, organized, and needs to be in control I was a bit nervous with the small amount of contact and easy online form method to set up your big day. But, it truly was that simple and they delivered! We are still getting compliments about our band and how spectacular they were. The acoustics of our venue’s room were a bit loud which drove some people off  the dance floor at the en of the night however; we heard from guests that even listening from the courtyard outside made for a great concert. I would highly recommend Russ Bennett Band to anyone who asks!”

Hank Lane Music Wedding Review: The Madison Avenue Band

Monday, June 20th, 2016

The Madison Avenue Band was fabulous. As you know, we have professional or trained musicians among family and friends (including the groom), so the quality and energy of the band was important. The Madison Avenue Band exceeded our expectations, kept everyone on the dance floor and helped make the wedding a tremendous success. We also had a muti-cultural crowd. From the Hora at the beginning, to the spirited but quality sound during the middle, to the hip hop at the end, they were perfect. What was unexpected was that most of the band members could sing and took turns. Please let the band know how pleased we were and we will be sure to refer Hank Lane and Madison Avenue to the many people we know.


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

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,
