  • We searched high and low for a band that fit our style of music and would appease our live-music-loving wedding guests - when we heard JK Band sing the first note "I Want To Dance With Somebody" in their demo, we knew the search was over. What voices, what incredible talent! They were responsive to calls and emails from the beginning, the band leader Joel was so accommodating to our requests throughout the process, and the day of the event, they really brought the party! They kept things going for the entire party with amazing energy - and those jazz horns during the main course... WOW! We have a very picky group of friends and family when it comes to music so it really says something that every one of our guests made a comment about how amazing this band was. There was even an "encore" chant! The music makes the wedding, and I want to thank Joel and JK from the bottom of my heart for making my wedding so incredible.

  • Absolutely outstanding! The JK Band delivered in every way for our wedding! First of all, like many others have said, they kept everybody dancing all night long. Even people who weren’t on the dance floor couldn’t help dancing in their chairs! Everyone at the wedding has been talking about how great this band was. They also got me and my wife dancing more than we ever have, and we’re not usually big dancers! I can’t say enough good things about this band. Joel was great to work with. He and I came up with the *perfect* ceremony music and the piano player nailed it! Joel even learned our first dance song (not a super popular song) for us and he played it great! All of the musicians were very high quality! If you are not sure what band to go with, look no further. This band will deliver!

  • We had 150 people at our wedding and everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever been to because of the JK Band. They sounded great and really kept the party going from the cocktail hour to the last dance. I would highly recommend this band.

  • My parents and coworkers at the wedding could not stop raving about JK Band for weeks after my wedding. Everyone loved the music and energy they brought to the reception. They played really a wide range of music from 70's to recent dance music. Everyone was on the dance floor - even my groom's 80 year old grandma. The singers and JK brought everyone to the dance floor somehow. If I have another event to plan, I would not hesitate to have them perform again.

  • Joel and the JK band were amazing! They kept our wedding guests on the dance floor for the entire night. The band knew exactly what music to play to keep the party going all night long. We can't thank the JK band enough for the awesome music! If we could give them more than 5 stars we certainly would.

  • We had the pleasure of hearing JK Band at the weddings of two other couples, so upon our engagement we knew precisely who we wanted to play our wedding. From the moment they played the first note, everyone in the room was impressed. They had people tearing up the dance floor consistently through the reception. It was truly impressive to witness the command they have over the flow of a party and sense for the perfect song to play next. The introductions, first dance, father/bride, and mother/groom dances went seamlessly. Everyone who I have since discussed the wedding with has agreed that JK was absolutely terrific. I'd add a sixth star if I could.

  • A number of years ago, the JK band played at my husband's cousin's wedding. It was so memorable for him that it was a no brainer to book them for our wedding. The JK band was absolutely amazing. We could not have asked for anything better. We have gotten a ton of compliments about them and they are definitely a huge part of why our wedding will always be remembered by friends and family. In particular, our first dance song (One and Only by Adele) was off the charts amazing! It was exactly how we were hoping it would sound if not better. Another reason why the JK band was so great was because of their ability to read the crowd and know what songs would make everyone stay on the dance floor. There were even a few songs they played that Joel and I did not go over and I looked at my husband and said, "How did they know to play this?! I love this song!" It really is a talent! Overall, working with Joel was one of the areas we never had to worry about within the wedding planning proces... Read more

  • To say the JK band exceed our expectations is an understatement!! Joel is organized and produced a show that had even out of town guests asking for his business card. The voices, instrumental and overall sound was FANTASTIC and the variety the band performed appealed to all of our guest. The energy, professionalism and talent is unmatched. I can't say enough good things about this band. They made my wedding such an amazing day!!!

  • Joel and the band had everyone at our wedding up on the dance floor the whole entire party. Everyone kept coming over to my husband and I saying how amazing the band was. Our guests were very happy with the fact that Joel and his band play a little bit of everything and that the music wasn't blasting. "It's so nice that we can still hear ourselves talk." Another guest at our reception said,"I normally never have the urge to get up and dance at weddings, and I was up on the dance floor the whole nigh, since the band was so lively and energetic." My husband and I, along with both of our families were extremely satisfied with them. They truly are a fantastic band who is worth every penny we spent.

  • The JK Band is the absolute best band to ever play at a wedding! My daughter was married at the Pine Hollow Country Club in East Norwich, Long Island. It has a magnificent ballroom and the right band to play here is the JK Band! They filled the room with an energy and sound that had the dance floor full the entire night! Joel is great to work with and a complete professional. He knows what will make a wedding work and he delivers. His band members are top of the tier! The vocals, brass, percussion, guitars - all totally cool and super talented. The work a crowd like no other band I ever saw. when their vocalists come into the crowd it's amazing. My daughter was so happy with this band as I was. When looking for a wedding band- don't shop around- go right to JK entertainment and book Joel and his band. Joel- thank you for making our daughters day so special.

  • The JK Band performed at my son's wedding this Saturday-May 30, 2015-the professionalism, musicianship, vocals, and varied genres of music was second to none. The memory of this wedding will last forever in large part to the JK Band-The band was most accommodating and encouraging in allowing me -on sax- to play a tune while wife and son danced. The father of the bride later joined me and the band as we continued to play a few songs-it was a blast.

  • Honestly, I thought the JK band was just OK. My husband and I felt very comfortable with them- they came to our apartment to meet us before booking and we thought they seemed reliable. I also think the lead female singer is very talented, as well as a couple of the musicians. But some of other singers are just average. We had a unique first dance song and a couple of requests and when I listened back in my video, I realized that it was very off-key. I also did not like that at the end of the wedding the band started promoting themselves and told people they were available for weddings and to come get a card. That is tacky.

    responded with the following comments.

    I am humbled to receive the first mediocre review of The JK Band in the 10 years of collecting reviews. I wish I knew who it came from and the wedding date so I can remember what may have happened during the first dance. Yes, mistakes can occur but one thing I will guarantee, no one cares more or puts out more joyful energy than The JK Band. Even if there was a problem with a "tricky first dance" I am confident that we kept the dance floor packed and the excitement flowing. I'm saddened to think that someone may read this review and miss the opportunity to consider one the best wedding bands in the industry. As for promoting the band at the wedding, what we often do is sing the song "One Love" by Bob Marley at the end of the party and change the words of the verses to tell the story of the wedding using the bride and grooms names. Then we end with: "On behalf of the band we would like to say thank you To all you good people 'cause you partied so hard If you know anyone throwing a party in the future Come up to the bandstand and take a JK Band card One love, one heart. let's get together and feel alright" etc Most people find this very cute and lovable because they are already in love with the band. Please read all the other reviews and you will know what I mean. Joel Krantz, bandleader

  • There are not enough words that can express how fantastic JK Entertainment was at our wedding in upstate New York last September. We have gotten SO many comments about how seats were just empty throughout the night because everyone was on the dance floor! Just amazing from start to finish. We had a 9 or 10 piece band play at the reception, 3 horns play at the end of our ceremony, and a trio play during the cocktail hour. Joel was flexible with us about staying within our budget while accommodating our musical needs. The entire band had a super energetic presence which set the tone for the entire evening, and they even learned a song for our fathers to sing last minute. This was the second time around for my husband's family who hired JK for my sister-in-law's wedding 7 years ago. All in all, unforgettable.
