We were married on Saturday and had the Jeff Lubin Band through Hank Lane Music. We requested Jeff's band after experiencing them at our friends' wedding 2 years ago. Jeff and crew had all attendees on the floor all night long- I was even dancing in my seat while eating... Read More dinner. They can not only play any genre you request, they play it so well that it's easy to mistaken them for the original musicians. When we met with Ian at Hank Lane, Jeff was available and we were ecstatic. A few weeks before our wedding, we spoke with Jeff for nearly 2 hours on the phone going over song requests and music that we like/don't like/despise from all genres we wanted played at our wedding. Jeff was incredibly kind and accommodating. He assured us if any songs didn't work on the dance floor, he would immediately try something else to entice the crowd. Our wedding was the most fun we had ever had. The Jeff Lubin Band was spectacular. Everyone was on the floor all night long. They played everything from top 40 to Springsteen to Sinatra to salt n pepa- they were out of this world. The band members were even in the middle of the dance floor with us, singing, standing on chairs, playing the sax. It was magical all around. I highly recommend the Jeff Lubin Band through Hank Lane Music. Please note they are expensive (more than $10k) but if Music is high on your priority list they are well worth it.

The Kenny Ford band did an absolutely amazing job at our wedding! From our somewhat unusual choices for the processional and recessional to the custom first dance medley to the band simply crushing every hit, we couldn't have imagined a better wedding band. Everybody at Hank... Read More Lane was great, they made the whole process enjoyable and stress free. So many of our guests (many of them musicians) came up to us during and after the wedding to tell us how great the band was, although we didn't really need them to tell us that since the dance floor was packed all night with happy smiling guests! Thanks for everything, we couldn't recommend the Kenny Ford Band and Hank Lane Music more highly!

What can I say about Hank Lane? They are the best. Our budget was limited, so we asked what we could get in our price point. We ended up splurging and dropped one band member to hit a price we could work with but it was worth it for Kenny Ford Band - our guests were on the dance... Read More floor the entire time up until the very last second, and the dance floor was PACKED. They accommodated a request to let my dad and his friends play a few songs themselves, and even jumped in during the last song to play together. Our first dance song was a little unique (Led Zeppelin) and Kenny Ford killed it. We were so happy with them - they really made the party exciting and fun. I wish we could have kept it going for hours more! So many of our friends were telling us how much they loved the band. Hiring them was an awesome decision and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

UNBELIEVABLE! If you want a PACKED Dance Floor at your wedding or any other event with all different types of music from the 1940's to the 1980's to present day then you only need to contact Hank Lane Productions. They do it all. I personally chose The Joel Young Band for our... Read More wedding this past October 14, 2016 because they played at my cousins wedding a few years prior. I am serious when I tell you I am NOT a dance person - I love music - but rather bounce around in my chair then show my "moves" in public - LOL. The Joel Young Band had me on the dance floor the entire night at my cousins wedding. Two to Three years later it was time for me to book our October Wedding. I called Hank Lane Productions to see what Friday's and Saturdays the band was available that month and planned my date around them… No Joke!.. and they did not disappoint. We had about 240 people at Terrace on the Park and I don't think one person didn't get on that dance floor - it was even packed during dinner service! We had fun, our guests had fun and the band even had fun. TRUST ME - give them free reign to play in between your “must have songs” and you will be the happiest bride and groom EVER! But more importantly your guests will be blown away. They will do whatever you want but trust me when I say they ARE the professionals - let them do what they do. I have a ton of family that are music professionals as well and they said the band didn't miss a beat - the singers were incredible, the music was top notch and never a delay in their transfers from one song to the next. Our wedding was going to be high energy either way - friends and family waited a long time for us to finally tie the knot - but the Joel Young Band made the evening UNFORGETTABLE and SPECTACULAR! Family and friends are still telling us that it was the best wedding they ever attended. I'm sorry to run on and on but I really can't say enough awesome things about them!

This review is for Luxe (one of Hank Lane's bands). We had seen them at 2 weddings before booking them at ours, so we had no doubt that they were amazing and they delivered.

We booked Hank Lane because a coupe friends of ours had used this company for their wedding band and we were not disappointed. It's been months since our wedding and people are still talking about how amazing the band was! They played a range of songs and played most of our must... Read More plays - a range of oldies, 80s, 90s, top 40 - you name it, they sang it! We went with The Frank Michaels band after we discussed with our sales associate the kind of music we wanted. The band was unreal and so talented. We went with a 10 piece band and all members sing! They also never took a break and played continuous music the whole night. Our first dance song which is literally not a well known song and buried deep in iTunes was played and executed perfectly - the singer nailed it perfectly! We also booked a stage through Hank Lane and it was totally worth it. The whole look and feel of it was just wow. My parting words, don't be afraid that a band can't play every song you want - that was my concern and almost why we went with a DJ. This band played everything from Avicii to Bruno Mars, Meghan Trainor, Bon Jovi, Journey, JT, Oasis, Rihanna, and the list goes on! Hank Lane/Frank Michaels is totally worth every penny. If you have the budget, go for a band over a DJ, they're timeless.

Hank Lane is trustworthy and great at what they do. We did not love that we couldn’t see the bands at a showcase or see any videos (besides what we were shown in the office). But with that said we still felt that we were in good hands and that Hank Lane would not let us down....

Thanks to Hank Lane's Marc Koslowe Band for creating such a joyful atmosphere for our wedding last weekend at the New York Botanical Garden. From our romantic first dance to the energetic hora, there was no point throughout our reception when the dance floor wasn't packed with... Read More guests having a great time. Marc was also an excellent mc, introducing the toasts, cake-cutting, and various photo opps; and he anticipated when it was time for quiet slow-dance music and when our guests were ready to party. The music was never so loud that you felt you wanted to take a break in a separate room, but the band filled the space with cheerful tunes throughout the night, making sure to get all of our requested songs in at the exact time we had asked. The two vocalists were out on the dance floor many times throughout the night--dancing with our guests and summoning lots of enthusiasm from everyone. Thanks, too, to Danielle, Jenna, and everyone else at Hank Lane who were great to work with during the planning process, and immediately matched us up with the Marc Koslowe Band as soon as we gave them an idea of our taste in music. If you are hoping for live music at your wedding, look no further than Hank Lane's Marc Koslowe Band!
