This band is incredible. From the second song in, people were coming up to me asking who they were! Jay is not only a talented musician, his band and singers are top notch and have extreme class.

Jay Prince and his band are PHENOMENAL. First of all, Jay and his team were a complete joy to work with for our wedding last week. Jay is so cool and really offers personal attention. He listened to our wishes, provided ideas when we weren't sure what to do for certain moments... Read More during the wedding, and accommodated a few special requests to personalize the evening. And of course, the dance sets were killer - everyone was up on their feet. They truly hit it out of the park!!! Everyone was raving about the band. We had guests tell us that the band was so good that they were happy to just watch them play - but sure enough everyone was on the dance floor. Jay knows when to play the classics and when to pump up the contemporary music for the younger crowd later in the night. And for a wedding with mixed cultures, he also knew when to explain things like the hora, for example. He was also a great MC, providing announcements for speeches in a subtle, not overdone way. I am so grateful for the band - one of the best decisions we made and would do it all over again a million times over. Just the best. When can I hear the Jay Prince band again?! Someone invite me to your wedding stat!

WOW!!! AMAZING!!!!!!!! FANTASTIC!!!!! – all words to describe the incredible band Nightsong from Hal Prince Music and Entertainment. We felt we struck gold when the band started playing and we saw so many people getting up to dance. We had a pretty eclectic group of people... Read More that ranged in ages from 2 to 92 and from different parts of the country and the world. The band appealed to everyone so much so that there was no coaxing anyone to get up to dance. When we met Jill from Hal Prince we told her what type of music we like and some of which we didn’t. We gave her some songs we definitely wanted played. We didn’t make a lengthy list because Jill suggested to us that we leave it up to the band. She said they would know how to read the crowd. They really did read the crowd well. As our guests were leaving many said they enjoyed the band so much that they didn’t want the evening to end. It’s almost three weeks since the wedding and we still get messages from friends and family telling us how much they enjoyed the band. I thank Jill, the band and all of Hal Prince Music and Entertainment for making our wedding an absolute success.

The Jay Prince Band absolutely rocked our October 8, 2016 wedding! A live band was our nonnegotiable item for our wedding, so we did extensive research on who to select. We went to NYC showcases, met with bands, asked for recommendations, spent hours looking at videos and... Read More reviews online... we didn't make a decision lightly. When meeting with Jill and Jay in their Mt. Kisco office (also have an NYC office), they were extremely personable, professional and truly listened to what we wanted- verses simply trying to 'sell us' on the band. After meeting, we got only excellent recommendations from other couples who had used them, so we booked them! In the lead up to the wedding, Jay and his assistant Pat, answered all emails and questions promptly. My husband and I met with Jay to discuss the tempo we wanted for the night. Jay helped us come up with a good collection of old songs, new songs and traditional songs that would fit the 250 person crowd. We had songs for every generation! No one sat at our wedding, unless it was because their feet hurt from dancing. The highlight of the night was our first dance to the song 'Tennessee Whiskey.' The band learned the song for us and absolutely nailed it! It was even better than the original version! We have received countless compliments on the Jay Prince Band and they absolutely exceeded our already high expectations. If you want people dancing your entire wedding and talking about how much it rocked for years to come, the Jay Prince Band (from Hal Prince Entertainment) is worth every penny.

They Can Do Anything! Engaging the Hal Prince Orchestra for my daughter’s wedding proved to be a great choice. Not only did we get Jay Prince as our Band Leader but Jill Prince (Jay’s sister) was also part of the package. Jill will be discussed later. As for the Jay and the... Read More Band, our guests are still talking about how fabulous they were. In addition to being up-beat and talented musicians who know and love the music they are playing, the sound quality was simply fantastic. I hate going to weddings, where you can’t hear yourself think. Somehow the Hal Prince Orchestra manages to play the music at sound volumes that clearly inspire the crowd to get up and boogie but not so loud that people cannot converse. Their engineers are that good. Jay and the Band can play anything you could possibly want to hear on your special day their set list is quite extensive. Our directive to Jay was that all the music had to popular and recognizable by our guests of all ages. Every song played had to have been someone’s favorite song. Their covers are simply amazing. We went for the 12 piece band that included several singers and an incredible horn section. I wish I could listen and dance to such a great band every weekend. The music of our wedding ranged from Sinatra, Motown, Swing, to the Hora! Jay is also a great emcee. He is charisma personified. Putting your affair in Jay’s hands is a good idea. He is fun and enthusiastic. That is also important during the planning aspect of your function. The process should be fun and not an ordeal. Jay made it a joyful time for us. Now onto what you would not necessarily expect from a music company. It was my good fortune to hook up with Jill Prince, who really put together the visual embodiment of what we wanted for my daughter’s wedding. She suggested a lighting and décor package that I had not seen before. It drove home the message of summer and happiness that we wanted to convey. She arranged for fabulous furniture rentals, incredible lighting and a monogrammed white dance floor that made the room magical. She is familiar with a wide variety of venues and vendors. She is a pleasure to work with and our wedding would not have been as magnificent as it was without her!
