  • 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.

  • The JK Band might just be the best band in the business. Unbelievable talent from top to bottom. They performed with unbelievable energy and you can tell they were genuinely having a good time while performing. Many of our guests have told us how good of a job they did, and we couldn't agree more!

  • We had such an amazing time with the JK Band. The dance floor was packed the entire night and Joel and team stopped at nothing to ensure the party kept rocking the entire night. From the moment we booked, we had several calls to dicusss which music to play, what songs the band would learn and even navigate logistics of how to introduce different family members. Joel and crew learned newly released music and mixed that in with classics to make for an epic dance party. We received so many compliments that JK was the best band people had heard. The band allowed my husband to perform his favorite song which was such a great memory for us to share. Overall, Joel and band are highly professional and very easy to work with. If you are looking for a band who will keep your guests engaged and excited throughout the whole night, look no further than JK!!!!

  • In September 2017, the JK Band elevated my daughter’s wedding reception into a resounding celebration that we will cherish forever. Through their energy, spirit, and ability to crush a wide range of music, this nine-piece band infused the night with joy and reverie. Bandleader Joel Krantz read the crowd beautifully, playing an array of songs that resonated with our guests and had the dance floor thumping all night. Joel was a delight to work with before and during the event, his only goal to meet my daughter’s wishes, a goal that he and his band far exceeded. One highlight came mid-reception after a bridesmaid named Caroline finished her toast on an emotional note. Joel then led the band into “Sweet Caroline,” a fitting follow-up to Caroline’s toast that underscores Joel’s thoughtfulness and warmth. Another exquisite facet to the evening took place over dinner, when Joel played a soft and lovely guitar, and then a band mate followed with the soothing sounds of his saxophone... Read more

  • JK band was excellent!!! Our guests were enthusiastically dancing the entire time Joel and his musicians played. The music quality, sound, and variety of music was fantastic and we couldn't be happier we chose the JK Band to perform at our wedding. It was a pleasure working with Joel. Our guests couldn't stop raving about our band and how much fun they had. JK Band is excellent and we would book in a heartbeat for our next event over and over again!

  • Terissa and I recently got married on July 8, 2017. We used JK Entertainment featuring the JK Band. Our rating is 5 Stars- all the way. Our guests' rating is 5 stars- all the way. Joel was amazing to work with. From the get go, he was responsive and easy to communicate with. He checked in with us all steps of the way, to ensure that we had all necessary items completed. One thing Joel did really well with was listening; he heard all of our requests/needs and made them happen. On to the night- The JK Band performed! Joel played to the audience and was able to keep all our guests out of their seats. Everybody was dancing and the floor was full for the whole night! The bands' sound was sharp and crisp. Joel and his lead vocals hit all of their notes on all of the songs. We are so glad we picked the JK Band. They really made it an amazing wedding for us. It's been weeks since the wedding. Family and friends are still raving about it. I can only say remarkable things ... Read more

  • Joel and The JK Band were tremendous! Very professional to deal with and simply amazing at performing. Everyone had an amazing time and numerous people told me they hadn't danced that much in year. I truly believe our wedding wouldn't have been as a success without them.

  • Wow! Joel and the band were amazing! We had a band cancel on us a few months before our NYE wedding and were so lucky to book the JK band before they were booked by someone else. They had all of our guests on the dance floor for 4+ hours of dancing! Not only can they play great music, but they can MC as well. Joel (band leader) checked in on us multiple times throughout the night to ensure everything was going well. Prior to our wedding, they sent us a very long songlist in which we could tell them what types of music to play. Our wedding was in the Albany area- so they are open to traveling as well! Can't recommend them more! Hope to see them at another party/wedding!

  • Absolutely amazing!! There is a reason they consistently have 5 star reviews. We got married at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers, and the JK Band is not only one of their preferred vendors, but also one of the most affordable options we saw for NYC when looking for live music. Joel and his gang kept EVERYONE on the dance floor all night long, and we have received rave reviews everyday since the wedding from people young and old. I have never danced so much in my life. My fiance and I also had some very specific requests that Joel & the band not only accommodated but executed seamlessly. I wish we could do the whole night over again!!

    Thanks Hannah, so much love and joy at the Lighthouse last Saturday night. We were thrilled to part of it!- Joel

  • There are not enough Stars for me to rate this Band.......Expectations are frequently not realized in this Contemporary Culture but the JK Band not only realized but vastly exceeded our expectations! There is a Joie De Vivre that Joel and his group bring to the Event and an understanding of the dynamics of performing through which he communicates the true essence of the term Celebration. Asking for all Professionals to perform in the same manner is a Pipe Dream for there is only one JK Band and only one Joel Krantz........... Kudos from a deliriously happy Father of the Bride !!

  • Joel and The JK Band played at our wedding in early May 2017 at Woodbury Jewish Center. Selecting the right band for your wedding is one of the most important decisions you can make, especially when you know your crowd will be dancing for 4+ hours. We are so happy that the JK Band provided the soundtrack to the best night of our lives and wish we could do it all again every Saturday night. The band truly rocked from the very start to late into the evening. They were tight and on point, professional, groovy, fun, joyous, etc - everything you could want in a wedding band. They never seemed like they were just going through the motions and are truly excited to be playing at your wedding. As a young couple who wanted a great mix of music (70s, 80s classic wedding songs, mixed with some Top 40) that would engage the entire crowd, we felt that the JK Band did a great job of keeping all ages on the dance floor all night long. We received many compliments on the band and continue to. Some ... Read more

  • JK Band was a true hit! These guys played a great "show." People were up and dancing and loving the live music. We were really happy to find a group that had such a wide range of songs in their arsenal. Joel, the band leader, was a pleasure to work with and did a great job as the MC. They were a high quality band that you should feel comfortable using at your function.

  • I wanted to thank you for helping make our wedding day unforgettable! The band was outstanding. Our first dance song was exactly what we had imagined -- slow, romantic and meaningful. The band kept everyone on the dance floor all night, playing energetic classic songs, as well as new Top 40 hits! All of our guests kept telling us they have never heard a band at a wedding so amazing! We continue to have friends and family talking about how great the music was! Thank you again!

  • Joel and the band were fantastic! The dance floor was full all night and included people that typically never dance; the music was that good! It's been weeks since the wedding and our family and friends are still raving about the band. I can only say remarkable things here. I would highly recommend the JK band!

  • I cannot say enough about this band! My husband and I did A LOT of research into new york area bands because it was at the top of our priority list for our wedding. JK Entertainment was absolutely phenomenal. Joel was very helpful in the planning stages, giving us advice and helping us curate our unique sound for the ceremony. He gave us a song/genre list that was a good jumping off point for our requests for the night and he even learned a new song for us. He was also extremely helpful in planning out the timing of the evening and coordinating with the venue on when to serve meals, do speeches etc. which I found completely overwhelming and was so glad to have his input. The band rocked the entire night. We had a 9 piece band and a room with very tall ceilings and they had a rich full sound. We not only got so many compliments afterwards but 4-5 couples with upcoming weddings asked for their information to book them as well. I would recommend Joel and JK Entertainment to anyone who wan... Read more

    Thanks Rachel and Colin. It was a magical night. We've already had 3 couples ask about the band from your wedding!
