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!

LOOK NO FURTHER -- BOOK MARCUS REID BAND

Marcus,

Before we head off to our honeymoon this evening, we wanted to take a moment to extend our heartfelt thanks for absolutely ROCKING the house down on Saturday night! We have received countless comments about "that band....omg!" You literally made our wedding everything we dreamed it to be (including all the Rihanna songs for me!!) - a big eclectic party that every single person would enjoy, and that they did.

We truly cannot thank you enough and hope you know how grateful we are to you and the entire band for just literally killing it. It may have seemed like just another night doing what you do, but you made our big day memorable and created the most amazing energy in that room which we will carry with us forever.

The ceremony strings were also fantastic!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We hope to have another reason to need a band at some point in the near future just to party with you again soon! It's been a real pleasure.

Frank Simmons Band- This band made the wedding! We literally partied from the first song until the last song four hours later. It was none stop, high, energy, amazing music. The voices were absolutely terrific. Everyone keeps commenting on how great the band was, along with how much fun they had because of the band. Frank was great to work with even before the event, making sure it was the kind of party we wanted with the music we like!

Hank Lane is AMAZING! From start to finish, the company as a whole was professional, organized, knowledgeable and easy to work with. We booked LUXE for our wedding of 200 people in the Apawamis ballroom in Rye, NY. They were a 10 piece band and 100% incredible. Obviously I'm bias, but they were the best band I've ever heard. Countless guests asked how we found them, saying they were they best of the best. Even a few asked for their card. Look no further!! They are young and fun and have the crowd dancing the entire night. Frank, the band leader, is so responsive to any questions during the planning process and he had great recommendations for the the flow of the night. We have nothing but good things to say about LUXE and Hank Lane. You will be in the right hands and this is one less thing to worry about as you plan your dream night!

We could not have asked for a better band than the Frank Simmons band for our wedding. They were absolutely amazing! Our guests were on the dance floor the entire night and were constantly commenting on how awesome the band sounded! Most of the time you forgot that it wasn't the original artists singing the songs, they were that good! Overall, they were very accommodating, organized and easy to work with. We were beyond happy with them and would recommend them to anyone who asks! Music is one of the most important pieces of the evening and they truly made the party rock!!

While on the hunt for a fantastic wedding band, our wedding planner suggested Hank Lane. We met with Spencer who showed us 3 different bands. Of course, we loved the most expensive band we were shown. I brought my parents back and knowing my dads theory of 'the band can make or break the wedding' we chose them. The band was lead by Erik Marshall who was so great to work with. He met with us 3x times before the wedding to put my mind at ease and by the time the wedding came, Erik was not just our band leader but our friend. He got to know Chris and I on a personal level to know what songs we like and don't like, what types of music our guests like, etc. He is not only an extremely talented and knowledgeable musician, he knows weddings. He had worked with our venue numerous times prior so his repertoire with the catering staff was on point. Between Erik and the caterer, they knew when to slow down the music to allow guests to eat and when to speed it back up to pack the dance floor, all without the event ever feeling choppy. Unlike other bands, there was never 'track' music played. The musicians rotated, taking breaks so that there was always live music being played. This was something I hadn't seen at other weddings.

The Erik Marshall band literally MADE our wedding. They rocked the house and had the dance floor packed all night. They were so amazing, we ended up extending the wedding because as they played the last song, our guests would not leave the dance floor!

Anyone looking for highly qualified musicians who are experts at making your wedding be the best, most fun, most energetic, insane wedding, book the Erik Marshall band.

We can not thank Erik and his band enough for a FANTASTIC night. We keep saying, 'we want to be guests at our own wedding' so we can truly enjoy the musical experience. Thank you to Hank Lane and to Erik Marshall.

We hired "Estrella" for our wedding night, and Carlos and the entire band helped to make our wedding night absolutely perfect!! They knocked it out of the park - we loved their energy and music! We had a bit of a complicated first dance song, where we combined a slow song with a fast song, and they were able to execute it seamlessly!
