  • The JK Band was by far the best live band I've ever seen at a wedding. They are talented, fun, and know how to get the crowd going.

  • My sister used the JK Band for her wedding... we loved them so much we used them for mine 6 months later! From start to finish, the JK Band was incredible. The dance floor was packed the entire night with people of all ages. Not only did they knock it out of the park at our wedding reception, but Joel was extremely communicative and wonderful to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process. Wedding planning can be stressful, and I knew I was in good hands working with Joel. He gave us song recommendations, catered to our song choices, and kept our wedding reception high energy for the entire evening. Would HIGHLY recommend the JK band for a wedding - you will not be disappointed!

    Erin, we love your family! 2 weddings in 1 year and both "off the hook" with love and energy. Do you have any other sisters LOL

  • My wedding was on NYE and we had a large crowd/a lot of hype to live up to. The JK Band were the heartbeat of the party. From months prior to the wedding, Joel reached out to us with a detailed form to really understand our vision. We had several follow up calls, an in person meeting- really as much as we wanted prior in order to be sure it was what we wanted. Even just as important, the band took the exact songs we wanted- but then from there, they added songs on the same exact wavelength and really showed why they are such quality musicians. While we felt comfortable with them before the wedding and they really delivered on your promise. They are true professionals(and personally Joel is a great guy) and the members of the band were fantastic. I wish I was having another wedding every year so I could hire this band!!! . Also- the first dance was amazing. It was so personal yet also by the end of it, it brought everyone to the dance floor surrounding us and singing it out loud.

    What a way to bring in the New Year and new decade! Amazing energy from the crowd all night. Yes, I wish you were getting married every year too LOL!! (thank you for saying I'm a great guy) LOL#2

  • We had our wedding on 9/15/19 at Gotham Hall, which is a big space to fill with sound, and the JK Band did it and then some! Not only was the JK Band's sound incredible, but Joel is incredibly professional and personalized. (He even coordinated with my husband, the groom, for the band to perform an original song by my husband!) Multiple people asked me for the name of the band at the wedding. Can't recommend highly enough.

  • We had originally heard of the JK Band watching them perform at a family friend's wedding. When it came time to start planning our own wedding, my family and I knew booking the JK Band was a must! Throughout the entire process, Joel made everything so easy. His main priority was to ensure my family and I had everything we envisioned. One specific vision was the father/daughter dance. My dad and I had the idea of starting slow and ending with a fast song, only we had trouble choosing the songs. With the help of Joel we danced to My Girl and ended with Ain't No Mountain High Enough, which got our entire reception dancing. Throughout the night, the dance floor remained packed with people of all ages. The JK Band was able to appeal to all groups of people with different styles of music. The next day, all the guests could not stop talking about how amazing the band was. "That band can really rock a room!" "That band was absolutely incredible..." were just a few of the comments. A moment we ... Read more

    What a pleasure to celebrate with you and your fantastic family. To get to do it again in just a few months makes it even better. Much love and joy to you and Brian! Joel

  • In just the three days since our wedding, we've had over a dozen guests rave about how great our band was, and a half-dozen more who have asked for their information to hire them. Moreover, my family includes several professional musicians, and they all though the JK Band was incredible. We are SO glad we hired them.

    Thanks Chris Caileigh was one of the happiest brides I have ever seen (and I've seen over 2700 lol). You know what they say "happy wife, happy life". You are a blessed man! Hope to celebrate with you again. Joel

  • Wow wow wow! JK Entertainment delivered from start to finish! Joel and the entire band were an absolute pleasure to work with! Joel really knows his stuff, had great advice and recommendations, was super helpful and patient, and played awesome music at our wedding this past weekend!! What a TALENTED group of musicians! Everyone at our wedding has been nonstop talking about The JK Band! They were electric, so energetic, and there was not a single song where the dance floor was not packed! The JK Band played songs for every age group at our wedding and even sang and mingled among the crowd! I cannot say enough great things about this band! I am SO SO happy that we chose them for our wedding day! Joel and the band even learned our first dance, along with a song that was a crowd favorite among our friends (Party in the USA). If you are considering a band for your wedding day- go with The JK Band!! You will not be disappointed- I promise!! Thank you, Joel- and thank you to the entire JK Ban... Read more

  • The most incredible wedding band!!!! We couldn't get our guests off the dance floor! We can't say enough wonderful things about Joel and the JK band. They traveled to the Hotel DU PONT in Delaware for our wedding and rocked a huge ballroom, keeping the dance floor more than alive all night long. From our first conversation with Joel, we could tell he knew his stuff and he kept us at ease with the planning process. The band was super adaptable; played beautiful soft music for our ceremony, delivered classic music for the cocktail hour, then brought the heat for a non-stop party at the reception. We've had many friends and family members comment on how much they enjoyed the band, with several of our parents' friends commenting "Best Wedding Band Ever!". We are so glad to have worked with Joel and JK band, and really hope to be a guest at a wedding they play for soon!!

    Thank you Thank you Taylor! What an amazing wedding and a beautiful place. It was worth the drive to Wilmington. You treated us like part of the family.

  • Joel and the JK Band were great!! We got married at Tappan Hill and our 200 guests were always on the dance floor! We were very pleased with Joel's responsiveness and expertise. He was very helpful in combining our taste with songs that our guests would enjoy. We've already recommended the JK Band to friends!

  • We hired The JK Band after hearing them play at our friends' wedding years earlier. Their performance stuck out in our mind so much so that they were one of the first groups to come to mind when we were planning our own wedding! Right away, Joel was very responsive to our emails, and came to our apartment in NYC to meet with us in person to answer any questions we might have before hiring him. It was clear he was organized and highly professional, right from the start. As we planned our wedding, Joel was very responsive to our questions. The band's pre-wedding questionnaire was comprehensive and helped us feel like we were all on the same page regarding the type of music we wanted played going into our wedding day. At our wedding, The JK Band truly delivered! Their performance was honestly one of the best parts of our wedding, and tons of our guests raved to us about them long after the event was over. The band truly set the tone for an amazing, high-energy, and fun evening! I'd highly... Read more

  • I HIGHLY recommend the JK Band! Working with Joel from start to finish was fantastic. He works closely with you and the venue to structure a timeline that helps the evening flow perfectly. From song one to the last the dance floor was packed and the energy they brought just added something extra to an already special day. The rave reviews from our guests about the JK Band keep coming weeks after the wedding. We cannot thank Joel and the JK Band enough!!

  • We got married in Nyack, New York and could not have been happier with our choice in band. Joel kept in touch months prior to our wedding and worked with us to ensure our wedding had our own personal touches. His band learned songs we requested and executed flawlessly. Joel is reliable, consistent (JK band was also great 11 years ago at my brother's wedding), and entertaining. I got many compliments about how amazing the band was, and couldn't ask for more.

  • WOW! WOW! WOW! That's all our guests were able to say about the JK Band's performance at our wedding reception at the Mansion at Natirar. Joel was such a joy to work with during the entire preparation leading up to the wedding day. His energy, professionalism, and desire to really make your wedding day more than you ever expected with respect to the entertainment is every bride and groom's dream come true. His band and vocalists are energetic and sound absolutely amazing. They can really throw a party, and get everyone on the dance floor and stay there. Joel even took the extra step to make my wedding day even more special by surprising me with a special friend of mine to perform at my wedding. What a special treat for me and all my guests!!! Throughout the evening, my guests kept coming up to me and my husband just raving about how AMAZING the band sounded! By the end of the evening our hearts were full of joy and love. Thank you JK Band for making our wedding so much more th... Read more

  • The JK Band did an amazing job at our wedding, and we are so happy we hired them. Leading up to the big day, the band leader was very patient with us as we had a very unique and specific vision for the wedding party introductions. They were able to learn a new song, play it well, and seamlessly introduce the wedding party like they had done it 1,000 times. They also know how to run a party — the dance floor was packed all night solely because they knew what songs to play and when to play them! If you hire the JK Band, you are guaranteed to have one heck of a party.
