Is there a setting to make it more than 5 stars?! I cannot say enough amazing things about Jay Prince and his band! My husband (ahh so fun to say that!) and I were dancing up a STORM all night long, along with all of our guests! Not only that, but we still have people asking us about Jay Prince Band, how we found them, and commenting on how wonderful they were! Jay and his band not only played phenomenally, but read the crowd in such a way that he kept both our friends and our parents' friends ripping up the dance floor until 1am! They also played true "continuous music," with someone always performing and not once hearing recorded music...real passion and talent right there!

Putting aside the fun and enthusiasm that Jay and his band brought to our wedding, Jay himself is a true class act and wonderful person. We were especially touched when he found out that my husband's mom had to leave the reception earlier than we expected, causing the mother/son dance to be cancelled. Jay approached my husband, just to make sure he was doing okay, because he truly cared and knew that my husband would be disappointed, understandably so. We cannot imagine that to be the "norm" of what a band leader does. Jay and his band made both of us feel as though we were the most special and important people to them all night long, treating us as individuals, rather than just the "bride and groom of the weekend." He really made an effort to get to know us as people and this came across so strongly, from our first meeting with him, to throughout the entire evening of our wedding, making our night even more special.

Jay Prince and his band have officially converted my "DJ's are better than bands" husband for so many reasons! I would recommend them to ANYONE!

I have worked with Hal Prince in my professional life for close to 7 years and they have never failed to be amazing! So when I began planning my wedding I knew I had to have them as a part of our day.

Jill, Pat and Oscar were all sooo great when it came to all the pre wedding planning, they made the whole planning process easy- they had great suggestions, always answered emails and questions quickly and were just an overall pleasure to work with.

Oscar was our MC and Steve was our DJ and they were amazing-- I think at one point they had all 185 of our guests up on the dance floor. They were both professional and really put together a perfect set. We had sooo many compliments on both Oscar and Steve from our guests.

The entire Hal Prince staff really helped make our wedding perfect!

Hal Prince Music, specifically Jay Prince & his rocking band, are simply awesome!! They brought the house down at our wedding on Saturday, 12/28/13! The process of working with Jay was seamless from start to finish. His professionalism was matched by his impressive vocal talent & awesome ability to shred on the guitar!! Corey and I are planning to renew our vows every year if possible, simply to have an excuse to hire Jay Prince again & again!!! Best. Band. Ever. Tried to give them 6 stars, but I was limited to only 5.

Jay Prince and his band exceeded our expectations. The ceremony music was beautiful and our guests were dancing all night to a wide selection of music. Jay was accessible prior to the wedding and collaborated with us to make this the best day ever!!! We would recommend Hal Prince Music without reservation.

This band was INCREDIBLE!! We felt like we were at our own private concert! They played also for our outdoor ceremony and were 100% accomidating to our wishes. Our Reception music was unbelievable - the sheer range of songs they played streached from Bon Jovi to Sinatra to Adam Samdler(I wanna grow old with you) and they OWNED each song like they wrote it. Amazing. Jay also had some excellent suggestions for when to start playing during the reception and as a result people started dancing before dinner and really never stopped. I'm glad I provided flipflops for the ladies becuase my aunts never stopped dancing all night and their feet were killing them! Thank you Jay Prince Band!!! My wedding guests are still talking about how great "My Band" was 2 weeks later. :)

Wow! Hal Prince was super easy to work with, professional, courteous, and experts in the business! The Jay Prince Band was incredible! Every song we requested was played, I danced from the second I was announced until the end and the dance floor was packed the whole time. These guys can really play! They know how to read the crowd and keep the party going and are great musicians. I couldn't be happier.

People are still talking about my daughter's wedding which was in January.... it is now October!
I believe it was due in part to the fabulous music provided by Jay and his band from Hal Prince Entertainment. From the music supplied during the ceremony through the entire reception we could not of been more pleased.
There is nothing like a live band for an event. It enhances the experience and makes it so much more memorable. Using Jay and following his advice was the best decision we made in the wedding process.

Jay Prince and his orchestra are wonderful!They played the music for the ceremony (flute, violin and keyboard), cocktail hour (jazz) and the wedding (10 pieces). Jay had played at my brother's Bar Mitzvah, our wedding and now our daughter's wedding! Their music and singing is beautiful. They read the crowd quite well. The dance floor was filled the entire evening! They played a great variety of music to accommodate the wide range of guests. We highly recommend them!!!

Jay Prince and his fellow musicians were really over the top spectacular. My groom and I found it difficult to speak to all the guest tables because everyone was busy dancing up a storm. The music was the best and Jay and his band did a great job getting a feel for the crowd and keeping the flow going the whole night. Before the wedding was over we had many guests request their contact information for their own future weddings. They really rocked the house and got everyone moving, shaking, and sweating. They set the kind of free-spirited dancing-machine-crazed, fun, awesome, and wonderful environment we were hoping for at our wedding. We've heard compliments like "best wedding ever" and it's due in large part to the command Jay and his band took rocking the party. I urge you to book them!

DJ Steve and his assistant were over-the-top amazing!..... From my 2 year old flower girl to my 72 year old father, the dance floor was packed all night. Amazing music for every generation, he was so nice taking the time to speak with me anytime I needed before the wedding to give me his suggestions and just listen to what I did and didnt want. He was classy (not a game show host type of dj) organized and put on an insane party. Everyone was genuinely bummed when that last song was over!

We asked for a slightly different role from our band, we had them play for about 3 hours (only rock like they were "jamming" at a bar) and the last 2 hours would be for the DJ (a dance party). Both my husband and I feel they just loved every second of rocking out. They were great and so far off from what everyone perceives wedding bands to be... cheesy. They were classy, fun, and even a few times when the DJ played (i.e. journey) the guitar player joined in for an insane solo. We used the Jay Prince band and Jay was great all the way up to our final meeting. He got us so excited even though we were pretty much pulling our hair out from stress. I couldn't recommend a better band.

David (MC) and Steve (DJ) are amazing. They were the MC and DJ at our wedding and they were INCREDIBLE. We got so many complements on their work and almost every guest (young and old) was dancing the entire night. They played quiet music during the food and fabulous dance music during dance sets. They listened to everything we asked them to do. We could not have been happier and would recommend them to anyone. And it sounds silly but, yes, it is much better when you have an MC and a DJ.

We were talked into using an MC in addition to the DJ and that was the best move we made but it was pricey. The MC did really well, kept the party going and was very flexible even when we had some confusion with the contract. The DJ mixed the songs a bit strangely and it became kind of a joke on the dance floor. It could have been a disaster if the MC wasn't there. The only thing that really put me off was that we came by for a scheduled appointment and they had us meet in the hallway of their offices because of some sort of scheduling conflict that didn't seem to require the employees to be restricted to an office. I thought it was a bit unprofessional to put paying customers in the hall in this situation, probably not the best move on that one.

The Hal Prince Band was amazing! They played great dance music throughout the night and took very few breaks. They had all of our guests on their feet dancing the night away. My only criticism is that they did not play the one song that I (the bride) requested that they play and that they put on a sort of dismissive track at the end of the night that ended with "that's all folks." All in all though, the band was fantastic and everyone at the wedding had a blast dancing.
