  • We used The Janis Nowlan band for our wedding on 6/29/2018. Janis was so wonderful to work with! It was so fun right from the beginning to go to one of their showcases to hear the band play and we were hooked! They kept the crowd involved and entertained and did the same at our wedding! Janis made sure we went over all our song selections and timeline of the wedding a few weeks before the big day. She made us feel more comfortable and understand the flow of the day and took a lot of anxiety away from us, as I could tell she was very thorough and answered all our questions. On our wedding day the band was amazing and kept all our guests dancing the night away! We had so much fun at our wedding and all our guests are still raving about the band!! A few of our couple friends even said they were going to use them for their weddings! Thank you Janis for making our special day so wonderful! -Allie&Rob

  • I absolutely loved working with Janis and her band! They are highly rated for a reason - they deliver talent and professionalism that equate to you and your guests having the absolute best time on the dance floor. Janis truly cares about each wedding - with several phone calls to hammer out every detail for the day of to make you (the bride) stress free! Despite our wedding weather being ridiculously hot - every single person was on that dance floor dancing (and sweating) up a storm and it made me so happy to see my guests having such a fantastic time. I hope to go to weddings in the future where Janis and her band are playing because I know it'll be nothing but a great time. If you are looking for a wedding band - you should just stop here and book The Janis Nowlan band. You won't regret it.

  • Janis handled our wedding at Merion Golf Club. It was 100% over-the-top. The bride and groom (and their parents) were ecstatic. Guests comments were incredible: "Best wedding band we've ever heard!!" "Unbelievably fun! The band played all my favorite dance songs!!" Everyone danced like crazy all night. Even shy guests hit the dance floor. Merion plans to bring Janis back for their opening celebration of the renovated course. For me, I would hire the Janis Nowlan Band EVERY TIME, no question!!

  • From the very start, we knew they were going to be a hit but we had no idea just how AMAZING they would be live. Our guests were on the dance floor from the moment they entered the tent until they were chanting “one more song!” - and the band delivered one more great song to top off the night. Every generation was on the floor have the best time. We receivers rave reviews from guests the entire night and next day! Every song was executed to perfection and the artists filled the room with true energy - the kind that you want your wedding to be filled with!! Everyone was fun, professional and extremely positive. Hire this band! They are THE BEST!!

  • The best decision you can make is to hire Janis Nowlan for your wedding. She is incredibly responsive to emails and calls. She made me feel that our reception was in the hands of a professional who knew exactly what needed to be done to have an amazing party. She kept everyone up and dancing, and people could not stop raving to us about the band. Her and her band are amazing musicians, and you will have a great experience with her.

  • My guests were really impressed with the size and glitz of the Janis Nowlan Band and aside from keeping the dance floor going all night, Janis' band has amazing vocalists so even the people who don't dance, really enjoyed the performance and skills of the musicians and singers. I love the way they dress and present themselves. Many remarked that it was the best band they had ever experienced at a wedding. I have to say what I loved as the mother of the bride, was having a seamless live musical event from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and then on to dinner and dancing. Very well done despite part of the band being temporarily held up due to an accident on the highway. (Everything worked out). Truthfully it was the first wedding where I have been able to speak to guests while we ate. The volume was perfect. My daughter was particularly concerned regarding the clarity of the sound system for the ceremony and speeches. I must say that the system set up by Janis and her team was clear a... Read more

  • Can’t say enough wonderful things about Janis and her band! They played recently for my daughters wedding at a New Jersey Country Club and they made the night the best ever! The dance floor was filled the entire evening. Janis was a pleasure to work with all through the wedding planning process. She truly tries ( and succeeds ) at helping the bride and groom realize their vision for the day. They are willing to learn any new song for your event. Our guests have been telling me ever since how they are the best wedding band they have ever heard! My daughter heard them play at a showcase while she was shopping for a band and knew after one song they were the band for her. Each musician and singer is so talented! Best part of the wedding reception!

  • Janis and her band were an easy choice during the wedding planning process. We knew they would keep our guests dancing all night long and they didn't disappoint! The band took the time to learn our first dance song and it was even better than the original. Janis made the planning process easy and stress-free in the early stages and weeks leading up to the wedding. Thank you Janis!

  • After hearing the JNB perform at my niece's wedding, my wife and I knew that we would want them to perform at my daughter's wedding. From the very start, Janis is a wonderful, personable and professional lady. Talking to her is like talking to a long time friend. They are very easy to work with, always responsive to calls or e-mails. The day of the wedding, the band was amazing. They work with you regarding all song selections and they even let me sing. They were so dynamic and so many people at the wedding commented how awesome the band was. Janice is a great lady and knows how to make your wedding truly a wonderful time. She will raise the bar at any wedding. Thank you Janis Dr. Bill

  • My husband and I first heard the Janis Nowlan Band at a friend's wedding 9 years ago. They were so fabulous that we knew if we ever needed a dance band, that is who we'd use. (Between then and now we have been to at least 30 weddings...NO other band came close to measuring up to them!) Planning our daughter's wedding this past spring, Janis was the only phone call we made and we were thrilled she was available. From that first phone call about 10 months before the wedding until the event, Janis was phenomenal. She worked with us and the bride and groom to plan the most perfect evening. She is incredibly organized and professional. She has boundless energy and her band is beyond extraordinary. She has the ability to read the crowd at the party and keep the dance floor packed the entire night. To a person, everyone told us we had the best band ever...and we couldn't agree more!

  • Janis Nowland Band performed at my wedding last Saturday and everyone cannot stop raving about how wonderful they were! Janis knew I wanted some "younger" music and totally delivered, performing songs not even on their song list on their website that got everyone up and dancing. I only wish we could have danced for 2 more hours!

  • Janis Nowlan Band is amazing and they were undoubtedly the highlight of our wedding. Our guests are still raving about them 6 months later. Janis was extremely warm and professional from our first contact. Leading up to the event she was personally involved in crafting the playlist and was sure to clarify the pronunciation of each name in our bridal party. The performance itself was great - they played nonstop, hit all the key songs and kept the dance floor hot. They also learned our first dance and Janis worked with me on some modifications to make it work better with our choreography. All in all - you should be so lucky to book Janis Nowlan Band for your wedding!
