Hank Paul is a pro. Just listen to what his suggestions are and prepare to have a great time. We have had continuous calls from friends who have said that they have never danced more and spent more time on the dance floor.

The dance floor never emptied. Park Avenue Orchestra helped us have a great party to celebrate our daughter's wedding! The dance floor never emptied. Our guests kept telling us how great the band was. Hank was very responsive, easy to work with and learned a song my husband and daughter wanted to dance to. I would hire Park Avenue Orchestra again. Thank you, Hank Paul and Park Avenue Orchestra!

From the very beginning of planning our wedding, I knew Park Avenue Orchestra was exactly what we wanted! There is an X Factor that Park Avenue offers that I did not see with any other band. Their energy is contagious and their personalities were warm, fun, and inviting. The variety of music they played made every guest happy all night long. The dance floor was full the entire night. Both male and female singers as well as the ENTIRE band were on point and energetic. It seemed that they thoroughly enjoyed performing for our guests the entire night. They had our guests dancing and singing on the microphone with the band making it extra special. They even sang Happy Birthday with the Groom's Grandmother for her Husband, the Groom's Grandfather's 80th Birthday that happened to be on the same day. All of the guests sang along and we will never forget Hank Paul and Park Avenue going way beyond our high expectations. We opted for the 7 piece band and we were not disappointed with our choice. Hank Paul was the BEST vendor to work with from start to finish. Besides being genuinely warm, patient, and generous with his time (making sure we were comfortable with every detail), he is passionate about what he does. Anyone could see how incredibly talented, professional, and electric his personality is. We will forever remember Park Avenue Orchestra making our day the BEST it could possibly be. There is no need to look any further for the perfect band. THIS IS IT!!!! I mean it. Do NOT look any further. Call and Book RIGHT NOW!!! Hank Paul- from our hearts to yours: THANK YOU for everything. It was amazing and I will hope that at every wedding from this day forward- that I will get to see you there!!!! I LOVE PARK AVENUE ORCHESTRA!!!

This band is fantastic! From the moment we contacted Hank Paul we were at ease with our decision to book them for our daughters wedding! Hank was very professional and has preformed at many, many weddings. We were assured the wedding was in good hands. Hank literally took away all the stress from planning the entertainment at the wedding. He made this aspect of wedding planning easy and enjoyable!

The performance of all the band members was spectacular! Hank Paul, Ricky Rainbow and all the other band members not only looked fantastic but entertained all our guests. We received so many compliments on the band!

I do not know what else to add except if you are considering booking this band for your wedding, do it NOW while they are available for your date. It will be a decision you will NOT regret!

This band! Omg what can I say to express how awesome they are! Once again, the Park Avenue Orchestra helped create memories for our family that will last a lifetime! They are truly the VERY BEST decision we made for both of our daughters weddings. They're not only talented musicians but phenomenal entertainers who interact with your guests all night long. The dance floor is filled the entire night and people don't want the music to stop! Hank Paul is one of the most sincere, hard working vendors we've ever worked with. He goes above and beyond! Thanks Hank and everyone in the band for another awesome night of music and fun. I almost wish we had another son or daughters wedding so we could book you again. :) Who knows...maybe an anniversary down the line! :)

If you want a vendor who is extremely easy to work with and does EXACTLY what you ask for then you need to go with Hank Paul through Park Avenue Orchestra. He is SO nice and is willing to go above and beyond what you ask for. Park Avenue Orchestra did both mine and my sister's wedding and the word I would use to describe them is just OUTSTANDING. Your average DJ will just play songs at your wedding, but Park Avenue Orchestra is a live band, is EXTREMELY entertaining and knows exactly how to get your crowd dancing on the dance floor the ENTIRE night! Who doesn't want that? They had all my bridesmaids and I (the bride) stand up on stage and sing, and they even got in to the crowd and made other people sing/dance in a circle together. All I can say is, there is no better live band or DJ out there. You need to go with Park Avenue Orchestra because you'll be guaranteed that everyone will have a BLAST at your wedding. :) If I ever have a special celebration like this again and need music at the event, I will DEFINITELY go with Park Avenue. They are worth EVERY PENNY!

I CAN"T THANK YOU ENOUGH PARK AVENUE! Our wedding will be forever memorable because of you. Thank you for making it so much fun!

Hiring Park Avenue was the best decision we made for our wedding! The band kept the dance floor full all night and guests of all ages raved. Hank made everything so easy - from our first inquiry, to the last song. My parents had heard Park Avenue at a wedding 4 years ago and, even after researching other bands, the choice was easy.

Park Avenue Orchestra recently performed at our annual charity dinner gala. They were the perfect finale to a wonderful night. Kim's voice is just incredible, and the other vocalists and musicians are impressive as well. The group has a very large repertoire, ranging from the classics through today's most popular hits.

Hank is extremely professional, and was an excellent event partner along the way. He made sure that I felt comfortable throughout the planning process, and confident in his group's ability to perform well and to also adhere to our strict schedule (load-in, sound check, performance, etc.). He made sure that the band was one less thing I needed to worry about!

This is the second time I've used Park Avenue Orchestra. I first hired the group five years ago for my wedding, and they still continue to impress me today! I highly recommend this group for your wedding, non-profit, or corporate event.

We've received great feedback from our guests, and I look forward to working with Hank and the band in the future.

Wow!! Is all we can say. Hank Paul & Park Ave is the full package. Hank is professional, very organized, easy to work with and a ton of FUN. My brother & sister- in- law had Park Ave at their wedding 2 years ago and it was not even a second thought when selecting music for our wedding. To be honest, we had the music contract before the venue! The crowd was dancing the entire night from start to finish. Hank accommodated many special requests and even went in on a surprise for us when family members contacted him and they planned out a flash mob dance.
The band did an amazing job singing the hits we requested and even accommodated all of our requests for the breaks. Our guests were so impressed with Park Avenue. We could not have had more fun if we tried. Many of us are sore today from all the dancing last night! Thanks Park Ave for being such a big part of our great memories!
