The Jack Faulkner Orchestra helped make our wedding an event to remember. Jack himself promised that he would keep the dance floor packed all night, and he delivered! We've been to many weddings and have experienced many wedding bands, but few of them can hold a candle to the Jack Faulkner Orchestra.

The music never stopped all night, literally. They kept the party rolling without taking a break. Song after song, our guests packed the dance floor and everyone walked away impressed. The music aficionados in attendance made a point to comment on how great the band sounded. Whether playing Motown classics, 80's favorites, or Top-40 hits, they are on point and they know how to design a set list that makes everyone happy.

We worked with many vendors in planning our wedding and Jack's professionalism and expertise stood out. Throughout the process, he was flexible and quick to respond. When we had questions, Jack's expertise, insights, and opinions made the tough decisions easy.

We had heard great things about the JFO but none prepared us for how incredibly fabulous they were for our wedding reception. I am sure that every person in the ballroom was dancing within the first 15-minutes of the reception - and some (like me) rarely sat down all night. It was so fun and we really cannot give enough thanks to Jack and his talented, energetic band members for their hard work, professionalism and incredible job extremely well done.

Jack and his band are the ABSOLUTE BEST! They are able to really make the whole night special, magical and perfect in every way. They are truley the masters of ceremony and music and because of them I didn't have to worry about a thing! If you don't use them, you are missing out. I cannot thank Jack and his band enough- from planning to execution to talent- there is no one better.

The Jack Faulkner Band was amazing! They are one of the only bands we interviewed that didn't take frequent breaks (in fact, they didn't stop playing!) and that is a huge bonus when planning your reception. They did a phenomenal job at our wedding, had our whole wedding dancing and singing the whole night and just rocked the place! Jack was super easy to work with ahead of time, listened to our suggestions and had great ideas for our ceremony. We had them play an acoustic Elvis song while I walked down the aisle (Can't help falling in love with you) and they played a Beatles song on our recessional (Here Comes the Sun). They played amazing songs, upbeat, old school and current! We got compliments all night long and for the weeks to follow. People even commented how fun it was that some of the band members came out to the dance floor to join in at some points.

Jack was incredible to work with! And on top of that his band's sound is absolutely kick-ass. My friends and family are still talking about how incredible the band was at our wedding. He had people dancing ALL night long, even my husband who is not a big dancer! His crew knew all the songs we wanted and even learned a couple that were really important for us to include. I would 100% recommend Jack and his band to anyone who wants a knock-out wedding that will keep your guests talking about it for years to come!

My family and I had a phenomenal experience with Jack and Jack Faulkner Orchestra. From the outset, Jack was incredibly responsive - setting up phone calls with my family and inviting us to a practice for our own personal showcase. After hearing the band play ~20 songs in 20 minutes, we signed a contract with Jack for significantly less than we would have had to pay to go through a booking agency.
Jack kept in touch throughout our engagement, putting together multiple versions of mashups for the Father-Daughter Dance and First Dance so that we would feel comfortable at our wedding reception. He even visited my family's home to personally discuss the type of music we wanted and the flow of the reception. We left most of the music to Jack's discretion (the band did learn a couple songs for us at our request), and we were thrilled with the result. Everyone, including our New York City- and Boston-based fans raved about how it was the best band they had heard at a wedding, and relatives we have never seen dance were on the floor for much of the night. Jack even performed a guitar solo during dinner...band members take breaks, but the band itself never stops playing! Jack's radio voice was perfect for directing toasts, photos, and meals. We couldn't be happier. Thanks to Jack and the band for a great night and one less thing to worry about throughout the planning process.

Jack Faulkner Orchestra did our friends wedding, and even after a few years, it still stood out as the most fun wedding we had ever been to because the whole crowd danced THE ENTIRE TIME. When we got engaged, we knew we had to have them at our wedding. Jack was so easy to work with, extremely responsive, detail oriented, and overall just a fun person to be around during the planning process. He was very open to suggestions, and he also had great advice for how to make everything run smoothly.

The day of the wedding couldn't have gone better. The ceremony music was beautiful, and the reception was such a fun party. The dance floor was packed within the first ten minutes of the reception. Jack recommends dancing in between courses which is a great way to break up the evening. As soon as the band started playing again, people couldn't get back to the dance floor fast enough. The song choices were a perfect mix of oldies, classics, and the newest hits. Uptown Funk was a personal favorite, so awesome to hear a wedding band playing my current favorite song!

We have received so many compliments about how talented and fun the band was. It was the best choice we made for our wedding. Now we just have to wait until guests who were at our wedding remember the awesome party Jack and the band put on and decide to use them :)

It all started about 3 years ago, before I even met my now husband. My mother was at a wedding where Jack Faulkner Orchestra was performing, and they were so great that she decided to take their card. Fast forward to 11/22/14, and we are still catching our breath from the non-stop dance fest at our wedding. From the very beginning of the planning process, Jack was accommodating and professional. Even though we lived in central NJ, Jack made several visits in order to first meet us and tell us about his orchestra, and then to collaborate with us to create the party of our dreams. We were immediately amazed by his vast knowledge and experience. We wanted unique processional music, and the band simply nailed it. Our goal was to have a night of nonstop energy, and that's what we got - the dance floor was packed the entire night. He is so aware of the natural flow of energy that exists and is able to provide the genre of music accordingly. We were so touched and amazed that Jack picked up on conversations that we had about songs we love, even classic rock songs, and surprised us with unique renditions of them throughout the night, even during meal times (shout out to Jack's solo performance of Thunder Road by Bruce Springstein). Being a Jewish couple, we had some initial concerns about their ability to knock out a hard core horah, but after 15 minutes of chair lifting, mosh pitting, and spinning in circles, people were still going. They simply know how to read their crowd. We are a very high energy couple who LOVES to dance, with guests who were equally as insane, and he had everyone out of their chairs, singing, dancing, and bouncing around the entire night. From old classics like SHOUT! to recent hits like Shake It Off (by Talor Swift), to their rapping abilities in Can't Hold Us, we were convinced that there's nothing they can't do justice to. A week later, people are still asking us who our band was and talking about how they created a stellar party.

My wife and I probably couldn't have been happier with our experience with the Jack Faulkner Orchestra. They came highly recommended from several friends and co-workers and did not disappoint. Jack definitely made an effort to meet the both of us and get to know our background, style and preferences. We had several requests outside of the "normal" wedding music and he and the band happily played them all. Jack also sat down with us and reviewed our timeline several times to make sure the flow of the evening and mood of the evening was what we wanted.

Come wedding day, Jack and the band exceeded expectations. It only took about 5 minutes into the reception before my wife and I looked at each other and said "Worth every penny". Our entire group of family and friends danced all night, and the band played music from every generation without missing a beat. At times it felt like we were at a concert in all the best ways. Our only regret was that we weren't guests at our own wedding and able to spend all night dancing.

My brother and his wife had the Jack Faulkner Orchestra three years ago for their wedding in New Hope, PA. They played so well that my wife and I hired Jack to play our wedding two weeks ago in Philadelphia. Jack and the band took care of every musical detail including the ceremony, cocktail hour, and the reception. Jack played music from every decade (60’s on) and had the dance floor full the entire night. Jack met us downtown a few times prior to the wedding to review and walk us through timelines, sequencing, and songs. The band learned a difficult song for our first dance and played it really well. Each band member was really set on getting everyone to dance and felt they really cared about making our night special. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and have The Jack Faulkner Orchestra to thank for setting the tone. Lot’s of people have been asking us who the band was and told us they were terrific.

I can’t say enough good things about Jack and how not only did he play great music and got everyone to dance, but he set the tempo for the wedding itself and helped it flow seamlessly from one event to another (intros, first dance, eating, speeches, cake cutting, etc). My wife and I are really happy we chose The Jack Faulkner Orchestra and would highly recommend the band to anyone who is in the market for a great band.
