The company's roster of more than 20 different set bands has been recognized as among the top party bands in New York in all areas of the media including on national and local television programs, in popular wedding websites, blogs, newspapers, magazines and books.

Book the Frank Simmons Band NOW!! They are absolutely incredible! From the moment we first met with Frank, he made my husband and I completely confident that he and his band would help to create a rocking party that would have our guests dancing all evening. They did not disappoint! Frank listened to all of our requests, and even re-worked a song that we wanted as our first dance to make the speed more appropriate. He and his band interacted with the crowd (which we wanted and requested) which helped to hype everyone up even more. They were able to read a room, and managed to pick the perfect songs through the last minute of our party! In addition to the talent, fun, personality, and professionalism that Frank Simmons band brought to our wedding, they also demonstrated how dedicated they were to creating our perfect evening when they allowed my husband and his band to perform a couple of songs. Without hesitation, Frank offered for the three guys to use his band's instruments, and even collaborated with my husband to make one of the songs they played a real show stopper! This flexibility is something you won't find with all bands. Thank you thank you to Frank and the band for making our wedding INCREDIBLE! Friends and family are still talking about it!

The Russ Bennett Band played at our wedding this past Saturday night and they were absolutely fabulous! Russ ran the party to perfection, and they played an awesome mix of music to keep the dance floor rocking all night long. All of our guests commented on how amazing the band was both during and after the wedding. We also had a great meeting with Russ before our wedding and he made us feel so comfortable. We were a little unsure about what songs to use for the processional and recessional, so he gave us a bunch of options and let us take our time in deciding which to go with. He also gave us some great advice on the flow of the night and how to keep guests on the dance floor throughout the party, which was important to us. He encouraged us to make a “must play” list, a “songs we like” list, and a “do not play” list, and during the party he followed all of our requests. We had a spectacular evening and I can’t say enough good things about Russ and his band. I would absolutely recommend this band and I only hope to get to hear them play at another wedding soon!

We knew that it was going to be an amazing night when we entered the room for the first time as a married couple and the dance floor was already packed with our friends and family having a great time. Jonny Hirsch and his band Brooklyn Sound brought their energy and A game to our wedding party and helped make our wedding the best night ever. We heard over and over again “Your band was amazing!” From the early conversations to the actual night, we cannot thank them enough for being a part of this special time in our life. Wish we could do it all over again!

We used Erik Marshall Band at Hank Lane and all 220 people attending our wedding said they have never heard a better wedding band in their lives. It truly felt like we were all first row at an incredible concert. Everyone in the room was on their feet, dancing their butts off from beginning to end. We had so much fun, the band was super talented, engaging and beyond entertaining. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to have an awesome party.

My husband and I had the Jeff Lubin band play at our wedding and they we absolutely AMAZING! The dance floor was always full and every single one of our guests came up to us that night, or called us the next day to tell us that they were one of the best bands ever! A week before our wedding my husband and I spent almost 2 hours on the phone with Jeff going through every single detail from the first note to the last- his attention to detail was something we appreciated and loved. Not only was the selection of music constantly upbeat and a great variety for all tastes, all the band members were amazing and the vocalists had the most beautiful voices. Even while our guests were sitting to eat the dinner courses they were clapping and singing along. We could not have been more pleased with Hank Lane and the Jeff Lubin band--HIGHLY recommend them!

Artie Stuart Band was AMAZING! This was definitely the best choice that we made for our wedding! Artie was so amazing to work with and really took the time out to talk and get to know my husband and I. We weren't totally sure on what kind of songs to play for the ceremony but he gave us great suggestions and helped guide us through it all. For the reception he had everyone on the dance floor all night! We wanted to have a fun dance party and that's what he gave us with long dance sets of the current hits and crowd favorites. We are also huge Bruce fans and he totally rocked it! Everyone is still talking about it! THANKS ARTIE!!

Booking Marcus Reid was the best decision my husband and I made after deciding to marry each other. Our dance floor was PACKED the entire night, and the party lasted long after it was supposed to end. I work in the entertainment industry and we had colleagues at the wedding, so expectations were high and many of our guests are very knowledgable about current music. Additionally, my husband and I love EDM, which many wedding bands just cannot do well. We considered hiring a DJ, but when we met Marcus we fell in love and were so charmed by his enthusiasm and obvious musical talent that we decided to take a chance and trust that he could handle it.

To say he delivered is a MASSIVE understatement. The entire band is tremendously talented, and everyone at our wedding was BLOWN AWAY. They played all our favorite songs, which is pretty impressive, and some even sounded better than the original. Some of our guests even assumed Marcus was a celebrity artist! The whole band came onto the dance floor and had a blast with my guests. Having Marcus at your wedding is basically like having an entire a second band, because in addition to his incredible vocal talent, he also plays like a million instruments, dances with your friends, and knows EXACTLY how to work a crowd. The whole band KILLED IT.

We feel so lucky to have had this band at our wedding, because we are fairly positive they will be famous pretty soon, and we got them in the nick of time! They are so much fun, SO high energy, so spirited, and their love for what they do is palpable and lights up even the largest of rooms. We are so fortunate to have had that love as part of our wedding. Thank you Marcus Reid Band!!!! WE LOVE YOU!!

Having Marcus at your wedding is basically like having an entire a second band, because in addition to his incredible vocal talent, he also plays like a million instruments, dances with your friends, and knows EXACTLY how to work a crowd. The whole band KILLED IT.

We feel so lucky to have had this band at our wedding, because we are fairly positive they will be famous pretty soon, and we got them in the nick of time! They are so much fun, SO high energy, so spirited, and their love for what they do is palpable and lights up even the largest of rooms. We are so fortunate to have had that love as part of our wedding. Thank you Marcus Reid Band!!!! WE LOVE YOU!! Read less
