We hired Park Ave. Orchestra for a charity Gala and they were wonderful! Not only was the music great, but they were extremely professional and the guests loved them. Also, we had a last-minute AV issue, and Hank and his team stepped in and provided the AV at a much more competitive price and within a week of the Gala. They were truly lifesavers! Highly recommend.

I suggest calling Hank and talking with him before ruling out the Park Avenue Orchestra. Hank was very professional throughout the process, listening to all of our ideas and coaching us only when necessary.

Park Avenue Orchestra was a delight to work with. Working with Hank Paul and the team were so professional, answered all of our questions in a timely manner and even brought up things we hadn't thought about. We felt like we were in good hands from day one. Plus, the dance floor was packed! I have never seen a band before Park Avenue that had most of the wedding guests on the dance floor the whole night. We even requested a song for our Father/Daughter dance that the band didn't know- and they learned it especially for our reception and it sounded amazing!

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.

We had the privilege of attending 2 prior weddings where the Park Ave Orchestra played and they were fantastic both times. When it came time to plan our own wedding, it was a no-brainer who our top choice for live entertainment would be. Our outdoor wedding took place last month and unfortunately had not 1, but 2, bouts of rain creating some rather wet conditions. The Park Ave Orchestra were very flexible and seamlessly made a couple last minute tweaks due to the weather, reassured me all would work out, and boy did it. They gave a TERRIFIC performance keeping our dance floor packed until the very end! My now hubby and I had guests commenting throughout the evening and beyond how awesome the band was and we couldn't agree more. They are professional, give consistently excellent performances and Hank was a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. They made our wedding exceptionally memorable and a ton of FUN! Thank you Park Ave!!

Thank you for the kindest compliments! Fantastic Party at a gorgeous venue in Sheboygan Wisconsin! A little rain was not going to stop us from making your Wedding Reception a complete success. The Rainbow after the storms over Lake Michigan while the Sound Engineers played Here Comes The Sun was a highlight of the evening! The Rain Stopped and the Party began! I Wish You And Brad All The Happiness In Your Futures!

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! :)
