  • Jonny and the entire Brooklyn Sound team were an absolute pleasure to work with. They made everything easy and seamless from day one. They know exactly how to get people out of their chairs and on the dance floor, and are pros at reading the room. I don’t think my now husband sat down once! Thank you to the entire band for the most magical evening.

  • Brooklyn Sound, from Hank Lane, who played for our daughter's wedding on 9/1/19, was fabulous ! They had everyone dancing for 4 hours and made the party. We have received so many compliments on how phenomenal they were. They were fun and easy to work with, and really read the crowd well. Brooklyn Sound was the perfect choice and we were thrilled with them.

  • Wedding was about 10 days ago and we are STILL getting such rave reviews about using this company. We had Artie Stuart as our band and we couldn't have been happier with the choice. They went above and beyond and kept with the mood of the entire night. WE ARE STILL ON CLOUD 9 OVER THIS BAND!! Thank you!!

  • We hired Josh and his band/DJ hybrid for our reception and it was killer. Everyone had such a blast the entire reception and to be honest I’m not even sure how much he DJed!! To us and all of our guests, we felt like we had a full band but still with the flexibility of a DJ. I definitely recommend the DJ/Band hybrid if you want the live music vibe but also need your millennial pop to be played too ;)

  • We used Russ Bennett Band for our August wedding and are so glad we did! We requested a mix of 70s/80s classics and rock and roll (not the traditional current hits playlist) and they nailed it. Our dance floor was filled all night and guests kept saying how amazing the band was. We didn’t stop dancing! A few of the singers even came into the dance floor to sing and interact with guests which made it so fun. We were very particular about our music choice and song requests and Russ was very helpful and accommodating from the start. We even scripted a special bridal party entry that they were happy to do for us. Overall, a fantastic experience and one of the best parts of our reception - people are still talking about it! We 100% recommend Hank Lane Music and Russ Bennett Band. Thank you!

  • So we decided to go with Hank Lane since my wifes sister is in the wedding planning business and she said they were legit. We hired Hank Lane for a guitarists/vocalists for the ceremony and cocktail hour and then a DJ for our reception. We live in Colorado so did all the meeting via video chat and phone calls. Everything went so smoothly from our first initial meeting and all the way through to the end of the reception. We were originally supposed to have Josh Greyson play the guitar and DJ the reception but he had something come up, which he then recommended Jonathan who actually did Josh's wedding. Both the guitarist and Jonathan were extremely professional and crushed their jobs. Jonathan did an amazing job reading the audience and playing songs that got everyone up and dancing. It was great because he did not speak too much, like at a club, but did not speak too little, it was perfect. He is great at his job and if you are looking for a DJ or anything musical for your wedding, you ... Read more

  • Booking the Russ Bennett band was one of the best decisions I made though the entire wedding planning process. I’ll start by saying one of our guests came up to us at the end of the wedding and said “your band deserves a Grammy”. This is just one of the MANY compliments Russ and his band received. Incredible doesn’t even begin to explain how amazing he made our wedding. They know how to read the room and kept people on the dance floor the entire night. My biggest concern about our wedding was that people wouldn’t be dancing. But honestly, if you book Russ, that’s not a possibility. They set the bar HIGH when it comes to music. I don’t think I couldn’t have picked a better band if I tried. If you have any doubts on who you should hire, Russ Bennett band is the answer.

  • We walked into the Hank Lane office in NYC with NO idea what to expect. We were so nervous about finding the most killer band and had no expectations for what we would find there. What we found in our first meeting with this entertainment company was a plethora of amazing musicians and top notch performers who were KILLING the wedding game. We landed on Frank Simmons and I am SO happy we did. Frank and his group are truly some of the best performers I have ever seen at a wedding!!! Every single person in attendance was floored at their epic performances all night. They NEVER let the music stop. They get the people dancing, dance with the crowd, take cues from the audiences and are literally some of the most amazing singers out there. I was SO excited to have them slay our wedding, and SLAY they did. Thank you Hank Lane + Frank Simmons. I wish we could do it all again!

  • Jenna Wynne Band was AMAZING. We kicked off the night with a packed dance floor... and ended the night with everyone chanting "one more song"! The highlight for me - was "Shout" - b/c the entire group was on the ground when we got 'softer now' :) SO SO fun. Got compliments all night from guests. Lots of top 40, which is exactly what we asked for! Especially love how she and her male vocalist came onto the dance floor with us to sing and dance with the group. Also, I requested a song to Jenna mid-set and it was the very next song they performed! Simply put, her band made the night!

    Thank you for your great review. We loved working with you and being apart of your May Wedding at the Central Park Boathouse!

  • We had the Karen Lloyd Band of Hank Lane play at our wedding on July 27th, 2019 and they are 10/10 amazing, so fun, would recommend to anyone who is willing to spend a bit more on their wedding band!! They were great to work with from the beginning- quick to email, scheduled FaceTime meetings on our schedules. On the day they did our ceremony music and sound and were willing to play our exact choices. They also were playing continuously through the entire reception. They were flexible to our needs and so excited and upbeat when planning. Karen crushed it being our MC and did a beautiful job introducing all our speakers. Everyone said they had so much fun dancing with the band- they played all our requests and kept the party going all night!

  • I had my wedding reception in July 2019 at the Loeb Central Park Boathouse. The venue, décor, and food were all premium….but it was Jeff Lubin and his band that made the night incredible. Jeff met with us beforehand (the meeting lasted hours, simply because we were having so much fun), and then he reached out multiple times before the wedding to touch base and answer any questions. I needed a wedding band to perfectly execute songs from a wide range of music genres; i.e. classic rock songs (both for me, and my music obsessed father), Frank Sinatra ballads (because who’s better than Sinatra?), and most importantly, a whole lot of pop songs to get the crowd dancing. Well, I kid you not, we almost sunk the Boathouse’s dance floor into the lake. And then, after we almost sunk the dance floor into the lake, I think I saw a few tears from the geriatrics in the crowd (ok, and me too), when Jeff morphed into Robert Plant and sang Led Zeppelin’s “Over the Hills and Far Away”...

  • We used Jeff Lubin from Hank Lane and we could not have been happier with the choice. Jeff was wonderful to work with - taking the time ahead of our wedding to understand our music taste, what vibe we were looking for - and the result was spectacular. Everyone danced the whole night, and it was so much fun! Could not recommend Hank Lane and Jeff Lubin enough!

  • Jonny and Brooklyn Sound played at our wedding last week. They were FANTASTIC. After just 1 meeting and a few emails they got a perfect feel for the music we liked and ending up doing an incredible job. People kept coming up to us remarking how amazing their performance was. We're recommending them to any friends of ours that get engaged!

  • We hired Marcus Reid this July for our daughter's wedding at Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The band and the entire Hank Lane team for helped make our special day even more special. The energy level was already high at this event and their efforts kept it that way until the very last note. They have the talent of a professional band and the energy level of a bunch of kids performing the big gig. We have been told over and over that this is a wedding than no one in attendance will ever forget. Marcus and the band are part of the reason why. We were at another wedding recently where it seemed like the band took over the event - as opposed to it being about the groom and the bride - that was not the case here.
