We loved the Franklin and Alison Orchestra for our wedding two and a half weeks ago. All of our guests were blown away when they walked in to the reception and saw a 9-piece band on stage ready to go. They made the night so much fun. The owner was wonderful and enthusiastic from the beginning and gave us a great deal. We ended up going for an additional half hour, which was a great idea, and they still had to tell us when they night was over because our guests were having so much fun dancing to their music. We were extremely pleased with their performance and would love to work with them again.

FANTASTIC!

Reviewed On 12/08/2015
Franklin and Allison did a fantastic job at our daughter's wedding in November! The music during the cocktail hour was great and provided a wonderful background while we greeted our guests. It was Laraine's idea to get the dancing started right away at the reception and she was right! Many guests remarked that they loved getting to dance even before the salads were served. Laraine expertly coordinated the reception timeline with the banquet manager for serving the dinner, cutting the cake, etc. Everything ran like clockwork. Prior to the wedding we requested 3 songs that were not on the band's song list. They learned all 3 and the performances were spot-on! Our family and our guests have all attended many weddings and other events, yet everyone unanimously agrees that our daughter's wedding was the best party they ever attended. We literally danced all night!

We used Franklin & Alison Orchestra for our wedding in September at Jasna Polana in Princeton and they were absolutely phenomenal. They did a great job reading the room and getting people up and dancing during the dance segments, while keeping the music quiet enough to be able to have a nice conversation during dinner.

Laraine was incredibly responsive during the planning process and a real pleasure to work with. Not only did she help set up the band, she made herself available to answer any random wedding questions we had. For instance, when we were having trouble finding a wedding planner, she sent me several referrals and went out of her way to make sure we were happy.

Can't recommend them enough!

The Franklin Alison Band was wonderful to deal with. They were very accommodating to all of our needs and especially for our music selection at our country farm wedding in June. The dance music was top notch, from 70's music, top 40 and jazz, it was all outstanding! Our guests are still raving about the band and it's members!
Thank you for a memorable wedding day!

We had the Franklin and Alison Orchestra play at our wedding on 9/27/14 and they were hands down fantastic. From start to finish, FAO made things easy, fun, and enjoyable. Laraine was prompt on responses and made sure she had all of our requests down.

We had a ceremony musician (guitarist), 3 musicians play during cocktail hour, and the band to keep the party going. Everyone was on the dance floor having a good time, and the band brought so much energy to our wedding that you don't get from DJ's. Keith was fun and energetic and made sure things were in order. This is a very talented group of people who helped made our wedding day unforgettable!

The Franklin & Alison Orchestra are amazing and made our wedding unforgettable! Laraine manages the band and was an absolute pleasure to work with! She helped plan every detail of the night and was so accommodating. She helped with the song list so that it was tailored specifically to our style of music. She was so fun to work with, I will miss speaking with her over the phone!! The band is so incredibly talented! They are not your average wedding band. The dance floor was packed all night and the band sounded amazing on every song!!!! We love the versatility of the band. They truly surpassed every expectation. Keith continued to check in with us throughout the night and was so great to work with. Our guests couldn't stop complimenting us on the music. We could not be happier that we chose the Franklin & Alison Orchestra to play at our wedding. They helped to make our night so special and completely rocked it!! We highly recommend them for any wedding - they will not disappoint!!
