Nik Lite was employed for our wedding at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel. I cannot express how fantastic the band was, how accommodating to our crowd, and the energy that they brought to the reception. Their performance took our reception over ...
the top. We have received so many compliments on the band. We also used Nik for our ceremony and cocktail hour music which was equally as perfect as the ceremony band. I would highly recommend them for any event!

We hired Nik Lite (7 piece band) for our Skaneateles, NY wedding and COULDN'T BE HAPPIER. They were out of this world--engaging, professional, upbeat, and a complete bargain. Every one of our guests were impressed. THANK YOU!!!

So entertaining and fun! Listened to all of our requests before and really chose music to fit our feeling. My husband is a drummer and they let him play with the band - such a great experience!!

Nik Lite freaking BROUGHT THE PARTY!!! Soooo many people asked us how the heck did you find this band???!! Because of Nik Lite, everyone at our wedding ages (8-70) had a blast and partied the night away! Dan stole the show as he was dancing a...
round in his zebra pants on chairs and the dance floor with guests while performing. The young lady singing with Dan (can't remember her name) has the voice of an angel. My dad still won't stop talking about her voice. And the horn players were phenomenal!!!
It's also worth mentioning that the solo guitarist at the ceremony learned a special song for our recessional without question. His voice was beautiful and he even jammed out to some great songs during our cocktail hour. When it started to get chilly and windy, he moved the setup indoors so quickly we didn't even notice!
Nik Lite is an amazingly talented group of professionals who know how to play anything and everything (a guest at our wedding said she counted 5 different decades they performed from).
If you're looking for reasonably priced band to rock out at your next event, look no further. I am from Pittsburgh, PA and I had a destination wedding in Ellicottville (Holiday Valley) so I looked EVERYWHERE from Pittsburgh to Rochester for the perfect band. Believe me when I tell you, these guys are it!

My husband and I chose Nik Lite for our wedding and it was a fantastic choice. We were able to go see the band play before we made our decision. After we signed the contract, Nik worked with us to make sure everything was the way we wanted it...
for our big day. We went back and forth several times with Mark to make sure the playlist was perfect. He was very professional and helpful. We worked with Marty as our lead male vocalist and he made sure everything was set well before our wedding day so we didn't need to worry about anything on our day. After the dancing started, the dance floor was never empty. Even during their break, when the sound guy played music everyone stayed on the floor. They were a big part of making our wedding reception a fantastic party. Guests are still talking about them a month later! Chose Nik for a great time!

If you want to be stressed and distracted at your reception, do not hire this band. If you don't read on for the details here is the moral of the story: they play good music, but are a total nightmare to work with the night of. After all the ha...
rd work, planning, and more importantly the true meaning of the day, the last thing a couple should have to do is to give them step by step instructions that were already set weeks ahead of time, have the lead singer at your head table multiple times during dinner, have someone ensure that they don't drink at the bar, remind them of your names when they forget them during introductions, have a band that takes triple (no exaggerations) the amount of breaks than scheduled, and loses personal property that they required to begin with.
I cannot express enough how much of a cloud was put over our reception because of the behavior of this band.
We chose Nik and the Nice Guys based on the samples of music and shows we viewed prior to booking. After hiring them, the process was easy and organized- which all changed dramatically the day of the wedding. It began at the time of announcements, just minutes before we were to be announced, when the lead singer came out to gather the names of everyone he would be announcing and what songs we wanted him to play. When I reminded him that we already gave him this information he pulled out a crumpled piece of paper from his pocket and walked away. The groom's parents and the first couple walked out to no music at all. Then, during dinner, the band attempted to take a break at least five times (they are only scheduled 2, 20 minute breaks total. One was to be half way through dinner, the other during a dance performance). My husband had to stop them each time and remind them of the timing on the contact. Several times during dinner the lead singer was at our sweet heart table asking us what we would like him to do next. Again, we pulled out our phones and pulled up our contract and suggested maybe he right down the information. We next had a 20 minute dance performance, which doubled as their second break. After the performance was over the band was supposed to start again to get the dancing and party portion of the night started. However, instead the band then began to leave the room. My husband again stopped them and they said they still needed to take a break because they "weren't able to get out of the room because people were in the way". He again pulled out the contract and insisted that they play. Another point in the night the band were trying to hype up the party by saying things like "let's hear it for the Newlyweds, Chris and........" they forgot my name. The evening proceeded with a few of the band members at the bar getting drinks while on breaks or when the rest of the band was playing. This was disappointing in so many ways, but also because we hired a 12 piece band, and only 10 people were present. The cherry on top of this all is that they required us to provide them an iPod for songs for the announcements and first dances, but then left it behind at the venue "in a zip lock bag behind the stage" because their policy is "to never take anything from a venue". The iPod is of course still missing because instead of if being given to the event coordinator or someone present at the time of tear down (including the bride and groom, our parents, and other venue staff), they left it on the floor, or one of them decided to take it home as a souvenir.

I was skeptical to go with a band over a DJ because our space was on the small side but this was one issue my husband was dead set on. My worries were gone immediately - when we arrived at the venue, the band and caterers very creatively set u...
p the space allowing plenty of room for everything to be set up and still plenty of room for dancing. The band was amazing. I can't say it any better. They were so talented and did a great job reading the room and making sure everyone had a great time. The variety of music was great for the different age groups we had and lots of guests were thrilled with their performance. Everyone I spoke to was really nice and helpful and tried to be as accommodating as they good be.
