  • I used Elan artists to book my band. They were easy to work with at first, until I received a call 2 weeks before my wedding to say my band had been double booked, which is horribly unprofessional and unlikely given the high level of this company. However, luckily, they provided me with an amazing band in the original ones place, and everyone LOVED the new band. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with Elan and their management, but their bands are still the BEST around and make a great party. All of the band leaders are incredibly easy to work with, and make the party.

  • We booked Rhythm Collective the morning after we saw them play at a showcase in NYC. They were so good, that my mom was screaming "book them now!!!!" They got everyone out on the dance floor immediately. The singer's personalities are infectious, not at all awkward (we found a lot of bands had at least one awkward performer), and fun to work with!! Singers and musicians are super talented and terrific performers, and the band is willing to learn any new song for you for special moments, and up to 5 other songs that you really love! WE RECEIVED SO MANY COMPLIMENTS ON HOW AWESOME THEY WERE. A lot of our guests were also used to DJs, so they were blown away by a live band. I've always thought that a good band is miles better than a DJ, but a bad band is so much worse than a DJ. This is why we meticulously spent time searching for "great" bands, because the whole vibe of the party depends on it. Well, totally worth our time!!! The dance floor was packed the whole time!!! Which is seriou... Read more

  • We booked Eric Nicolas & One Love, and honestly believe we picked one of the best bands in NYC! When we first attended one of their showcases, I immediately knew I wanted to book them (even though they were slightly out of our price range). Not only do they have a vast range of genres in music-- they sound 1st in class no matter what song they tackle. One of our biggest criteria's was to have a band that could do American pop music as well as latin/spanish songs (while sounding authentic). The band did an amazing job, and had my whole latin family out of their chairs & dancing the whole night. They were good about reading the crowd, and using the momentum to keep everyone dancing. Months later, one of the consistent compliments I still receive about our wedding is the band. I always hear, "Your band was awesome"... and to be honest... they truly were!

  • We just got married a month ago and couldn't have asked for a better band! We saw Eric Nicolas and onelove play at a showcase back in June we loved them! We had an instant connection with Eric the band leader and he explained the whole process for us and made us very comfortable with our decision. For months we were on the phone with him asking our millions of questions. He was always so helpful and even made sure we spoke Thanksgiving weekend while he was away with family. On the wedding day we could not have been happier with our choice of band. Our guests were dancing all night and we really loved the mix of pop and of course classic rock! After and even during the wedding people kept asking for the band info and asked how we found them! The end of the night the sax player came down to the dancefloor and did the shout with all of us! It was so much fun and we can't wait to see this on our wedding video! It's a memory we will never forget! They learned about 5 new songs for us and... Read more

  • Elan Artists were awesome! The Classic Trio was so elegant and my guests love it for my wedding. Gretch was just great. She helped me through the process of choosing my classical songs step by step. She was extremely responsive and catered to my needs. Her assistant Andrew was responsive and great as well. They both were just on point and very professional. I really wish I would have gotten my DJ from Elan Artists as well. I am overall extremely satisfied with my experience!!! Thank you!

  • THE SOURCE. This band made the wedding! Eli, the point man, chatted with us multiple times over the phone and email prior to the event about the details. This took time for him to do, and isn't on his contract! Every single guest, young, old, an din between eerie dancing and coming up to us ALL night about ow ridiculous our band was! I just kept saying, I know, we booked them before we booked our church! They even changed the words to one of the songs, to words my mom wrote for us, how nice! Ellan artists weren't quite as easy to work with as Eli and The Source was. Once we booked them, they bent us a copy of the contract, which was missing an extra horn we added to the original contract. Also after booking them, it wasn't as easy to get a hold of someone as it was before we signed the contract. And, there were multiple people contacting us. I wish there had been one person assigned to our contract because with all th either vendors you are dealing with, it was hard to keep of mult... Read more

  • The Hudson Project played at our August 2012 wedding and were far and away the best part of our wedding (as was confirmed by every single guest). We knew they were amazing when we saw them at the studio but we can't even put into words how wonderful they were on our wedding night. From oldies to the Beatles (played throughout dinner as we requested for my mom) to top 40 and rap, everything sounds like you are listening to a CD and the energy they bring to the room is incredible. Everyone commented to us how much they loved the band and our guests were dancing all night. Andrea was wonderful to work with throughout the process and remembered every single request (even playing Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary to our grandmother and parents, events we hadn't even mentioned). We wish we could be invited to another wedding they were playing just to see them perform again. Thank you, Andrea and team!

  • I can't say enough amazing things about Elan Artists. Our band, Eric Nicolas & One Love, went above and beyond any and all expectations we had. Every one of our guests commented on how special the band was. I think the question I heard most throughout the night was: this band is amazing, where did you find them? One of the reasons this band is set apart from typical wedding bands is that they are willing to learn any type of music to cater to the bride and groom. My husband is a huge Phish fan and they learned two different Phish songs for him. It was his dream to dance to Phish at our wedding and they made it come true. Additionally, we sent them a list of songs that we enjoy to provide insight into our music tastes and they turned that list into a setlist. Every time they began a new song we would look at each other with wide eyes and disbelief that they were playing yet another one of our favorite songs. They even obliged several requests from our guests - including a polka d... Read more

  • We had Carte Blanche play at our wedding and there are no words to describe how perfect they were! We danced all night to a mix of 1920s jazz, Latin, and French music. They are the whole package! They first of all look period which fit perfectly into our 1920s theatre venue. Secondly, they are all so talented! The band leader Kate was lovely and their lead singer has the most unbelievable voice! It was also so easy and lovely to work with Gretchen at Elan Artists. Thank you Elan Artists and Carte Blanche!!

  • There are really two reviews here I'd like to give -- One to Elan Artists and one to our Band (Eric Nicolas & One Love) First -- The band completly blew our expectations. We had seen them in an EA showcase (definitely worth going to) so we knew they were amazingly talented -- but the dancefloor wasn't empty all night and they were able to accomodate all of our requests for our ceremony and reception. I'm biased of course, but they were 100% the highest quality wedding band I've ever seen (and we've been to a TON of weddings). You definitely pay for their quality but you can scale up or down the number of people you hire to fit your budget. (we did 10 people including 3 horns). I'll get compliments on them for years to come. Second -- Elan Artists. We worked with both Daniel and Josh throughout our booking experience and I will say that Daniel was a great vendor to work with. He was always happy to help us and pleasent to talk to -- sometimes hard to get a hold of because they are... Read more

  • It's tough to write a review because we worked through Elan Artists management company and the band manager but the service provider was The Elements band. Elan Artists were good to work with. They were a tad impatient while we tried to figure out if a band could fit our budget. They also were not very proactive with reaching out (I sent an email with my "dont play" list and day-of schedule). The band manager was useless but we worked directly with Kerry the lead singer in the end. Now for the fun part- the band! We went with solo keys for the ceremony, solo guitar for the cocktail hour and the 6-piece band for the reception (all from The Elements). They are fabulous!! They were by far the most talked about part of our wedding. We had a male and 2 female signers who should be on the radio. The keys player was also outstanding. The band played a great mix of slow dinner songs, Motown and contemporary. They will also learn a couple new songs if requested. We had a very non-traditional f... Read more

  • We had the band Rhythm Collective at our wedding and they were fantastic! They really got all of our guests on the dance floor and it was fun how they would step off the stage and interact with guests on the dance floor. They have a huge range of music they can play so it was easy to work with them and select songs. They were also helpful in planning out the sequence of events at the rehearsal to make sure everything ran smoothly!

  • We hired The Source through Elan Artists for our wedding. Although we had some initial sticker shock, once we heard The Source play at a DC showcase, we knew we had to hire them. Now, we couldn't be happier. Everyone agrees that we had the best wedding band ever. We hope to have the occasion to work with The Source/Elan Artists again.

  • We chose to have Rhythm Collective play at our wedding. They are just one of the many bands that Elan Artists offers. We definitely chose right. Rhythm Collective was outstanding. We had people coming up to us all night asking where we found them, and saying that they were amazing and this was the best band they had ever seen at a wedding. They played anything and everything. The extensive list of songs was so great. We had everything from Sinatra to Britney Spears. They we definitely on top of the Top 40, and they just really enhanced the party. Everyone was up and dancing. Even my 81 year old grandmother! Daniel called us the week before the wedding and went through everything with us. The flow and schedule of the night, songs we really wanted to have, timing, and they even let my Uncle come up and play the piano with them for Run Around Sue. It was just amazing. All the band members got down on the dance floor and performed. They even handed the mic to the kids to sing a... Read more
