Franklin & Alison is hands down the best wedding band I have ever seen. They made my wedding AND my sister's wedding. I have never been at a wedding where people dance so much. They nailed my esoteric first dance song "Call On Me" by Big Brother and the Holding Company/Janis... Read More Joplin. I watch the videos people took of the band at my wedding constantly just to try and relive the amazingness. I would hire them again and again and again. I didn't even tell them what songs to play and they completely nailed the set list. Their songs appealed to people old and young alike. My friend from Australia that was at the wedding wrote on Facebook "Danielle and Tyler's wedding in Upstate New York. 10 piece band with 5 vocalists. Wow Americans know how to do a wedding!! Feet so sore from all the dancing. 😄👍🏽"

My father-daughter dance was a new song to the band, and they learned it quickly and it sounded amazing. They...

He kept the party moving and made sure that the toasts, etc. went as planned. The musicians are excellent and the singers were phenomenal! Laraine is an absolute joy to work with and is very responsive via email and phone. She worked with us every step of the way, helping us craft our perfect setlist. She is so much fun and so knowledgable about weddings, particularly the New Jersey wedding scene. She was so helpful with etiquette and planning the night, like entrances and special dances and traditions. I can't recommend them enough! I hope I see them at my friends' weddings in the future!

Franklin & Alison Music played at my daughter's wedding on September 24th at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I can't get their music out of my head. It was perfection. Keith is a musical genius and each song was executed with complete finesse. They are not a "wedding band". They... Read More are a group of highly talented and skilled musicians that do what they love and produce music that more often than not sounds even better than the originals. We had several special requests, not on their repertoire that they delivered brilliantly. My daughter was so excited to learn how many of the most recent hits were added to their song list just over the summer , such as Major Lazor ,and many more. Laraine, their manager is fantastic to work with and will collaborate with you to tailor the play list according to your tastes. Keith is a jazz pianist and played a Steinway babygrand with the rest of his quintet during the cocktail hour. Our guests were blown away by the performance. During the reception ,the dance floor was packed and no one wanted the dancing to end.

The Franklin & Alison band is absolutely amazing! My husband and I were married in July of 2017 in Cape May, NJ and they really got the party rocking! Our dance floor was so crowded that some people had to dance to the side of it- no one sat the whole night. We got so many... Read More compliments on the band, that even dates of guests texted us to compliment the band's performance. They have something for anything you may want (Bruce, Bruno, Pop, Soulful, Disco, R&B.. etc). As they have 3-4 major vocalists they never took a break- which was a particularly notable aspect of their performance. A friend of mine already booked them for her wedding this spring. Also, Loraine was really sweet and totally accommodating. Do not hesitate! Book them before they are booked up!!

Fabulous!! My husband and I had booked with Franklin-Alison Music because they were able to offer us everything we were looking for. We booked Ray Bicolli’s strings and a pianist for our ceremony/cocktail hour as well as DJ Ty Chappell for our reception. We were NOT... Read More disappointed. As a bride, I was always researching and planning. Ty and Ray asked me all of the questions and essentially helped me plan out the music portion of the day. They call you and basically walk you through everything that needs to be figured out. Really, they made my life easier. As I got closer to the wedding, you learn to appreciate companies like that. As far as the wedding day goes, our DJ Ty took control over the day using the microphone to help inform people of what was going on, helping guide them as to what we were doing next, and again just letting me have a good time while he made sure everything ran smoothly. He was also incredibly flexible. Ty was very good in the spotlight and made for a very memorable garter toss. While the garter and bouquet toss portion of the evening can be cringe worthy, our wedding’s Garter toss was very upbeat, playful, and fun. People were on the dance floor all night. That says a lot when you have not only younger people saying they loved the DJ but older relatives as well. Music is such a big part of the day, and in my opinion they were worth every penny. Hopefully you all find this review helpful. I cannot say enough good regarding this company. Happy planning!

The highlight of our daughter's wedding was the music. 'The Other Band' was the perfect group for our daughter's wedding. Great professional musicians with a vast repertoire of music that addressed a diverse age group and tastes. They had that perfect balance of providing superb... Read More music while making sure that the focus remained on the bride and groom. They were able to sense and respond to the crowd, keeping the energy level flowing throughout the evening - never during the evening was the dance floor not packed. Just as important, working with Mike and Allison prior to the wedding to establish the song list and special music requests was a delight. They were flexible and easily adapted to the many requests we had. For weeks after the wedding, every time I ran into someone who was at the wedding their first comment was how much fun they had because of the great music. They have my strongest recommendation for any wedding or other event where you want great music professionally delivered.

My husband and I recently got married in April and were planning our wedding long distance. I read and listened to a ton of bands remotely and was very particular about what I wanted in a band from an authenticity and variety of music stand point. When I saw Franklin & Alison's... Read More video, I felt in love with their performances and immediately reached out to Laraine who was super responsive. She has such great energy and was an absolute pleasure to work with...she really worked to accommodate us with the right scenario for our particular wedding which I'm very grateful for. The whole process was fun and a breeze leading up to the wedding. On wedding day, Keith was phenomenal as the MC and each musician absolutely rocked it! We are getting so many compliments on the talent and versatility of the band...so much range that you won't get with other bands (and actually have it sound great). People danced all night and had so much fun. I only hope that we can attend a future wedding as guests so we can dance all night! Highly recommend them to anyone in the tri-state area planning a wedding or event.

The F&A band was one of our best decisions for our big day in Manahawkin, NJ a month ago. The band was very important to us because we knew it would largely be up to them to make our wedding fun for our guests. We were drawn to the F&A band because their promo video showed... Read More them playing a lot of the classic hits we love to dance to on a night out at dive bars. Their rendition of Bruce Springsteen sealed the deal. They were exactly what we were looking for! The process of booking with F&A was easy. Loraine made us feel comfortable immediately and seemed to understand what we were looking for. She was honest with us about what she thought we needed based on our guest-list and worked with us on providing musicians for the ceremony and cocktail hour (which wasn't even on our radar). We met three times before the big day and the band even learned three new songs for us! I can't say enough good things about the actual performance on the big day. Our dance floor was crowded the entire night. I loved being in the moment and looking around only to see 15 tables of empty seats. Everyone danced- from the youngest cousins to our oldest family members. Keith was even sensitive to a request from one of our older guests to lower the volume of the tracks that were played from an MP3 during the band's breaks so that the guests could talk to each other for a few minutes. He did a great job running and we are very grateful!

We have nothing but amazing things to say about our multiple experiences interacting with Loraine and the musicians of Franklin & Alison Orchestra. From the first meeting, to running to Sugar House Casino to see their full band, to hitting up a winery to check out their dinner...

Loraine is a complete pleasure to work with and was incredibly responsive to our texts/emails and learning music that was important to us.

We received so many compliments from all of our guests about how impressive their 10 piece band was as well as their ability to perform such a wide variety of music. The band learned several special songs for us and really nailed them. Not a single song was played that the dancefloor wasn’t packed.
