We hired MTM for our entertainment. Overall the DJ, Frankie was wonderful. He was very in tuned to what we wanted to hear thoughout the night and very responsive to the crowd on the dance floor.
I had a few older guests, family members mention they wished he played more music for older people; but everyone seemed to have a wonderful night. There were a ton of guests on the dance floor the entire time. He really got the crowd moving and we all had a lot of fun.
Overall it was a great experience, the dj was great and planning for the big day went pretty smoothly. Would definitely recommend More than Music entertainment.

We contracted with MTM division of Hank Lane for a DJ and live music,We had a singer, and 3 other pcs and last minute 3 wks before the wedding we added a bongo player....we were told he would interact with the guests on the floor . He did not....we paid an additional 800.00 for him.
When I called on Monday to tell them I was happy with all but the bongo player, I was pretty much told too bad. We worked with Gil who told me they already paid him and as long as he showed up and played I got what I paid for..
When I spoke to his superior I was told The same thing...he showed up and played, the fact that he didn't interact was my fault because I should have discussed it with him that evening...I explained that the evening went in a blink of the eye and by the time I realized he didn't interact it was over....
Basically...too bad
So my review is if you want an overpriced group that you must pay for 3 weeks in advance , not on a credit card... With NO recourse if you are not satisfied.....then go to MTM/Hank Lane...I would not recommend

I used a Hank Lane DJ- I had my guests RSVP with 2 song choice, I gave them all to the DJ and told him to do the best he could! The music was exactly what I was looking for, the dance floor was packed all night and people commented after on how good the music was. I don't think he took a lot of requests though- you would have to specifiy if you wanted that. He was also very professional on the mic & didn't overuse it or say anything cheesy.

My DJ was sweet, rocky start but once he knew what people were reacting too, he went with it and we didn't sit down for the rest of the night. Now for the negative..... The fact that you can not meet your DJ before hand or even have a sit down with the supposed liaison to organize your wedding day is NOT FUN! I emailed her a few days before the wedding with the line up list and music updates and my DJ never got it. I had to scramble the day of my wedding to get him a copy of the line up and we never got to hear the songs we wanted added to our cocktail hour. A little disappointing.

More Than Music did a fantastic job. DJ Morrison was very professional and chose a great range of music that had everyone dancing until the very end of the wedding. He paid attention to my requests (for types of music, when to play what, and songs not to play) and played a great party. Would definitely recommend!

I was happy with everything at my wedding...except for the DJ from More than Music, a division of Hank Lane. I was told that I would be getting a sophisticated DJ that only does weddings but instead I got a fist pumping mess in a black suite and red tie. Not only did I spend a lot of my night requesting different music than he was playing but he took extreme liberties straying away from my list of music and style I requested. Towards the end of the night my friends were all making fun of him he was so ridiculous. I even had to tell him to please stop making so many announcements, for example, he told everyone to "look at my nails"...who does that?? WORST of all, they had a videographer come to film the DJ for a promotional video without even asking me! Now in my photos I have a huge man video taping the DJ. I do not reccomend working with More than Music unless you were one of the cast memebers from the "Jersey Shore".

We used Hank Lane for DJ and Live Music services for our wedding reception at Battery Garden’s Restaurant in New York.
We primarily planned our wedding long distance (Illinois) so much of my correspondence with Spencer Kaufman was conducted via email and phone calls. The staff at Hank Lane was always very responsive and willing to answer any questions that I had. If anyone has been researching Hank Lane online, you will discover that it is extremely difficult to find reviews or video clips for the company. When you meet with them they only permit you to listen to audio of their performers. I’m still not sure why they do this but I can assure you that when they promise that “Hank Lane does not disappoint” they truly mean it. As I was debating whether I wanted to sign a contract without actually seeing who would perform at my reception I never once felt pressured by the Hank Lane staff. They were extremely helpful in terms of assisting with our music selections and well as helping me coordinate the sequence of events for the reception. The DJ/MC was great and kept everyone entertained. The live singer sang beautifully and the pianist was a nice touch at the cocktail hour as well as when he accompanied the live singer during the dinner hour. All in all I had a great experience working with Spencer Kaufman and the Hank Lane staff and wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone considering using their services.

I used More Than Music (Hank Lane) for my wedding at Bubby's in Brooklyn. It was great - the DJ was very professional, played exactly the kinds of songs we had asked for and most importantly (to us), he didn't act like the "star" or "MC" of the wedding. He was a good DJ and kept things moving appropriately but was not a big personality that would overshadow or take away fromt he event. We were extremely happy.
