We recently had The Source play at our wedding reception and we were absolutely thrilled. Our guests are still talking about the music over a month later. They were FANTASTIC and it truly made our reception--everyone was on their feet dancing the whole time. The Source play a huge variety of songs and do everything so well we were impressed with the entire playlist and were so happy with our first dance. While communication with the band was a little less smooth than with some of my other vendors, everything worked out in the end and was finalized by our wedding day. We would 100% recommend The Source.

It is difficult to express in words how over the top happy we were with The Elements, but will do my best. Our wedding planner recommended Elan Artists as a quality company to work with for wedding bands. While we had explored and listened to a number of other bands, we attended a showcase for Elan and knew right then and there that the Elements were the band for us. Our primary focus was on amazing food and wine (we got married at Blue Hill at Stone Barns) and a phenomenal band (and achieved that with The Elements).

About 2 months before our August wedding, my husband and I had a few phone conversations and email exchanges with Kerry to iron our must play, do not play, and requests for any songs not listed in their repertoire. We felt very confident going into the big day. And what a success it was – the Elements far exceeded our already high expectations. Their amazing renditions of everything from Sinatra to U2 to James Brown to Queen to Jay Z to Mackelmore kept our entire 80 person wedding on the dance floor all night! The band was so fun, so engaging, interacted with the crowd and really knew how to keep the party going. They also completely surprised us with one of the songs we requested at the very last minute. That evening, the next day and for weeks to come, my husband and I, our families and friends, could not stop talking about the band and how they made the wedding. (We want to become groupies!!!) One guest commented “I don’t know if I was at a wedding, a Michelin star dinner, or a really great concert! It was all three!!!” And that’s how we felt. Thank you to The Elements for making our day so incredibly fun and special.

I hired Elan Artists for my wedding in July. I hired a belly dancer who was nothing short of AMAZING!!! Everyone at my wedding raved about how wonderful she was. Very professional, showed up early, performed wonderfully and was very personable. Coming from a Middle Eastern background I was very picky about hiring a belly dancer, but Leyla came and put on a fantastic show!!!! Highly recommend. Also, Gretchen at Elan Artists was great to work with for booking, etc.

Elan Artists provided The Source for my wedding on May 17, 2014 in Middleburg, VA. It was great that they had a preview show in New York so I was able to get a taste for them live instead of just reviewing videos online. Everyone at the wedding loved them. Great sound and energy. The dance floor was packed all night!
It was a little hard to get in touch with the band in the months and weeks before, but all of our requests were met to the T. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Ground Control was absolutely amazing!!! No one wanted the night to end because we were all having so much fun dancing! They were energetic, played a great variety, and had no problem playing specific songs we requested! We would not hesitate to spend the money and use them again!

This review is just about the Elements, the band we contracted with via Elan (our planners handled the communications with Elan, so I can't comment on that piece). The Elements were AMAZING. I was specifically looking for a band that would play both music I enjoy (what some would call eclectic and indie) and my older relatives would also like. The Elements did it all -- they had the party jumping, played songs from every genre you can think of, and learned several special request songs that were executed perfectly. All of my friends were amazed and we were dancing up until the very end. Bravo! I want to have another party just so I can hear the Elements play again.

We hired The Hudson Project six weeks before our wedding. Our initial band retired at the last minute. Fortunately, Beth Bailey Weddings put us in touch with élan artists where we found the Best Band ever! We were so lucky to book them on such short notice, but their wedding had canceled on them. We were not disappointed! They are highly entertaining, high energy, great songs, great voices!! Everyone is on the dance floor with this band playing! Grab these guys early in your planning process for the best entertainment at your reception!!

I used Elan artists to book my band. They were easy to work with at first, until I received a call 2 weeks before my wedding to say my band had been double booked, which is horribly unprofessional and unlikely given the high level of this company. However, luckily, they provided me with an amazing band in the original ones place, and everyone LOVED the new band. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with Elan and their management, but their bands are still the BEST around and make a great party. All of the band leaders are incredibly easy to work with, and make the party.

We just got married a month ago and couldn't have asked for a better band! We saw Eric Nicolas and onelove play at a showcase back in June we loved them! We had an instant connection with Eric the band leader and he explained the whole process for us and made us very comfortable with our decision. For months we were on the phone with him asking our millions of questions. He was always so helpful and even made sure we spoke Thanksgiving weekend while he was away with family. On the wedding day we could not have been happier with our choice of band. Our guests were dancing all night and we really loved the mix of pop and of course classic rock! After and even during the wedding people kept asking for the band info and asked how we found them! The end of the night the sax player came down to the dancefloor and did the shout with all of us! It was so much fun and we can't wait to see this on our wedding video! It's a memory we will never forget! They learned about 5 new songs for us and played everything we had on our "list"
Thank you Mellisa for staying on us throughout the process we enjoyed the conversations! Thanks again and can't wait to work with you guys again in the future!! Oh and make sure you have them play some Jazz and of course brazilian music they are so talented!
