  • Joel and his band played at our son's wedding this past weekend at the St. Regis. We thought he and his band were fabulous! We would not hesitate for a minute to highly recommend them!!! The vocalists were great!

  • We choose the JK Band to perform at our wedding and it was the BEST decision we ever made for our once-in-a-lifetime event! Not only was Joel easy to work with in the booking process, he was really knowledgeable in advising us on what music selections and order would work best for our ceremony and reception. When it finally came down to our wedding day - from the ceremony music, to the cocktail hour, and throughout the entire reception, the band was PERFECT. You could tell they really loved what they do, because the energy in the room was amazing. Their musical skills were very apparent, and they really knew how to get our guests to the dance floor. The lead singers were also amazing in that they actually come out to the dance floor to sing and dance with the guests. They were part of our party, and they made the party a PARTY. My guests are still raving about how great this band is. Do yourself a favor and book with them. And go for the full 9-piece band. They are AM... Read more

  • From start to finish, wonderful. We had seen the JK band at numerous other family weddings, so we knew what to expect. Joel was very responsive through out the process, worked with us to craft the perfect night, then executed flawlessly. This band really knows their stuff and what works to create an awesome atmosphere. They were very accommodating to learning our requests, and sounded great the night of performing them. Everyone raved about the band (though the ones that were at previous weddings knew how great they were). We can't thank them enough for making such a fun night!

  • The ultimate goal for our wedding was to throw an amazing party where our friends and family (and ourselves) would have an awesome time. And, we wanted to make that happen with live music. JK Band took our vision over the edge and created a night of dancing that we have been getting rave calls about for the last week and a half and, I don't see those calls ending any time soon. All members of JK Band are such talented musicians and, they exude a powerful, positive energy that gets people on their feet quickly and keeps them up dancing all night long. We had such an unforgettable time singing and dancing along to music that spanned decades. Joel is very professional and easy to work with. We had no questions walking into our wedding which helped make for a stress-free day. We have been telling everyone we know about them and, are so happy to recommend them here!!

  • Thank you JK Band for making our wedding on Sept 27th so special!! Hands down, they MADE the night! We had soooooooo many people come up to us telling us how awesome the band was and I couldn't agree more. They had us dancing all night long! The day wouldn't have been the same without them and they were great about learning a few special request songs for us and setting the tone for a wedding that was more fun that I could've ever imagined!! Thank you again and I've already passed JK Band's name along to all of my friends getting engaged :)

  • My wedding reception was at Oheka Castle and the JK band was my band. They were absolutely amazing! Joel, the band leader, was easy to work with and communicated well. The JK Band read the crowd well and played music for everyone to enjoy!!! All of our guests danced and still are asking "who was your band? they were amazing!" If you need a band, for your wedding USE JK!!!!!!!

  • JK Band was great- they actually played at my cousin's wedding 13 years earlier, but were just as good now as they were then. They were a great mix of motown and top 40, and we loved having them.

  • We got married in July and our friends and family are still talking about how great the JK Band was. They kept everyone dancing the whole night to an awesome variety of songs. We gave a few genre favorites, but for the most part, trusted the judgment of Joel & the band for the reception schedule/song selection and it worked out perfectly! They really know what they're doing. We don't typically write reviews online, but felt the JK Band truly deserved a shout-out. Everyone kept asking "Where did you find the band?" and in fact, it was right here through wedding wire! We then saw them perform in NYC after reading the reviews and made the best decision ever by hiring them. The dance floor was packed the entire night and we all had SO much fun! Thank you, JK Band!

  • Joel & the band were AMAZING. Hands down, the most feedback & compliments I got from my guests was on the band. They don't take breaks, they sing all types of music & they sing it well! They interact so well with the guests, they really make the party. You won't regret picking the JK Band.

  • Joel and his band are absolutely amazing. We first saw them at a friend's wedding a year ago and we were so impressed that we knew we wanted them to play at our wedding. They're able to play a great variety of music incredibly well and all of our guests were dancing until the venue closed at 1.00a - including our 90-year-old grandmothers. I, personally, have yet to attend a wedding where as many people danced as much as they did and we received multiple compliments on our band selection as the night went on. Two different people at the wedding asked for Joel's contact information to share with some of their friends that are currently planning weddings. They learned songs that were special to us (even if they were really silly - 90s hip hop is basically the best thing ever). Fantastic music aside, Joel is exceptionally great to work with. He's positive and upbeat and was always available to talk about the event while remaining open to any ideas we had. When we realized we had ... Read more

  • I got married on April 12th and chose the JK band to play for our big day. I could not have made a better decision. Joel Krantz and his band were truly phenomenal. From their level of follow-up, to their quality of service, everything was top notch. They were not only able to play a wide range of different genres from 60s to rap, but they played everything perfectly! There was only one song we wanted played that they had never played before, but they eagerly learned the song and played it well. Overall, we could not be more happy with our decision to use the JK band. They had our entire party out and dancing the entire night and many of our guests have reached out to us since telling us how wonderful the band was. If you're looking for a band to play your wedding, I cannot recommend Joel and team enough. They were truly phenomenal!

  • We hired the JK Band to perform at our wedding at the Central Park Boathouse. They were really fantastic! They learned a special first dance song for us and performed it really well, and then at the last minute (literally 48 hours before the wedding) we asked to learn another hard song, Africa by Toto, so that one of our groomsmen could sing it with them. Even though they'd only performed that song once before, they absolutely rocked it at the wedding - the whole crowd gathered around to see the performance and then had a terrific dance set. They can play all kinds of music - top 40, 60s, 70s, etc. And Joel, the leader, was very responsive to all of our emails and calls in the lead up. We highly recommend them.

  • The JK Band rocked the house on our new year's wedding! The bandleader Joel was super courteous and professional, contacting us well in advance of the wedding to sort out specifics for the night. It's quite obvious they have done this many many times before, because no stone was left unturned in the planning process. As far as the performance itself goes, our guests were on the dance floor all night! The musicianship and the way the band read the energy of the crowd was top-notch. an example: during the mother/son dance, the guests were in really high spirits. The original plan was to be seated after the mother/son dance and to hear toasts and speeches, but the JK band noticed the high energy in the room after the mother/son dance was a high-energy song. They fed off that energy and played a 20 minute set where all the guests rushed the dance floor. Not everyone can "run with it" off the cuff like that, but this band did, and that's what impressed me. the singers and musici... Read more

  • So it took 3 years to get this review up, but that I still did it, proves just how great Joel was to work with. We got so many complements on the music at our wedding and they played all the songs we requested beautifully. They even let my best man come up and solo on guitar for a song. Really high energy show!

  • My husband and I made the best decision hiring the J.K. band to perform at our wedding. The band had our guests up on the dance floor from before we even entered the room to the last song. The band was so talented, professional, engaging, and the life of the party. Music was playing straight for the entire night, even during dinner. Even though the expense of a band is more than a DJ, the J.K. band really proved their value throughout the night. Joel was really flexible with songs we definitely wanted played during the night and even learned a few songs with the band for us, which was so greatly appreciated. Our guests are still talking about how wonderful the J.K. band was. We could not have made a better choice!
