Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception: Ernest Mills Band

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Hank Lane and The Ernest Mills Band were the perfect choice for our wedding!  We wanted a band that kept our guests on the dance floor all night with a mix of crowd pleasers that focused on Top 40 hits, and Ernest Mills delivered.  From the moment we heard their recordings at the Hank Lane offices, we knew the band’s covers would sound as close to the originals as possible, and their high energy sound was what we were looking for.  What we didn’t expect was how far above and beyond that they would take it.  Their voice and musical talents were incredible, getting guests to applaud even during the dinner music.  And Ernest would work the crowd throughout the night to make sure everyone was having a good time.  He was especially attentive to me and my wife, coming over to us throughout the night to make sure we were happy with their performance, and ask if there were any songs or artists we wanted to hear more of.  From our easy, stress-free communication with the company’s staff leading up to the event, to the band’s fantastic performance on the night, working with Hank Lane & Ernest Mills was certainly a highlight of our wedding. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding band they had ever seen.  Thank you so much for making our dreams come true!

Hank Lane Music New Jersey Wedding: The Billy Stone Band

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014


Hope you’re having a relaxing LDW.

Just wanted to let you know that The Billy Stone Band were absolutely incredible last night for our wedding. They were above and beyond what we could have imagined, and numerous people came up to us saying they were the best wedding band they had ever heard. We literally had the entire crowd on the dance floor until midnight. We’d be happy to give any sort of recommendation if ever needed, but wanted to make sure you knew how happy we were with the music.

Talk soon!

Hank Lane Music Wedding Review: The Ernest Mills Band

Thursday, August 28th, 2014


My husband and i just wanted to tell about the wonderful job The Ernest Mills Band did at our daughter’s wedding this past Saturday night. They played all the songs we requested, they were professional and amazing. Everyone danced all night long. We heard repeatedly from all of the guests what an amazing band, all asked who they were, including the catering director! I am sure you will get requests for him as a result of this.

Please share this with The Ernest Mills Band, and again we cannot impress how great they were!

New York Times Celebrations: The Frank Simmons Band

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Dear Kim,

Let us commend the Hank Lane organization for the beautiful, meticulous and energetic musical job you did during for eery minute of our daughter’s glorious wedding reception. Many of our guests remarked that every aspect of the wedding from start to finish on a scale of 1-10 was an 11. We believe and attribute every vendors hard work to making this success possible. But wish to highlight Frank Simmons and his incredible group who kept everyone dancing and upbeat throughout the evening. We can only give Kim Kaufman, Michael and  The Frank Simmons Band the highest remarks possible. A thank you from my wife Cindy, our daughter Samantha, our new son-in-law Josh and myself. If we can give you a rave review for future business it would be our pleasure for a job so well done. We’ve enclosed a New York Times article piece that appeared in the New York Times Sunday Styles Vows column on the bride and groom.

Best regards and continued success,

Jay and Cindy Gutterman

Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception: The Marc Koslowe Band

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

It was spectacular! The Marc Koslowe Band were so so good! People were dancing the whole night and so many guests said it was the best wedding band they’d ever seen. My dad said it reminded him of the old Philadelphia soul bands he used to see in the 60s (and that’s probably the biggest compliment he could give).  Jessica and I had such a blast. Marc was also incredible at the ceremony and the cocktail hour. Everything was just perfect. Thanks so much to The Marc Koslowe Band, and thank you for all your help arranging everything! We couldn’t be happier!
