  • The Joel Young Band is awesome! They played our wedding ceremony and reception on 12/15/2018 and they were the perfect choice. We originally saw them play a wedding in 2015 and they were so great that we decided to book them for ours in 2018. Even though we did not give them many song recommendations, they played exactly the type of music that we wanted and kept everyone dancing the entire time, and their sound systems were excellent. Many of our guests are still talking about how great they were! Leading up to the event, Hank Lane was very helpful and always responded quickly to our emails and concerns. They also keep the entire band open for your date, so we were able to add additional musicians two weeks before the wedding. The Joel Young Band definitely gets a 5 star review from us - wish we could give them more!! Definitely try to book them for your event.

    Thanks so much for your kind review, Anna! It's awesome that you remembered us from your friend's wedding 3 years ago, and wanted to make us a part of your special day. Maybe we'll see you at another friend's wedding!

  • I’m not the biggest fan of weddings and not usually that fond of the food, but the Joel Young Band made my night at my friend’s recent wedding on Long Island. Great musicians, awesome song list, and they had the place totally rocking. The entire place was up and dancing the whole night. If I wasn’t already married, I’d hire them for my wedding! Haha

    Glad to hear you had a great time, Holly, and thanks for posting the review! And it's also great to hear you'd like to hire us...maybe renew your vows with a party? ;-)

  • Thank you so much to the Joel Young band for making my wedding so much fun! We're so happy we made the decision to hire the band instead of a DJ, it made the experience so much more personal and you really got the dance floor moving. Thank you for making the trip out to Pennsylvania. Our guest thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we received so many compliments about your band. The Joel Young Band made the event unforgettable! Thank you again!

  • Joel Young Band made our wedding night unforgettable. Almost every single guest has complimented the band. Throughout the entire night, the dance floor was never not full. My husband and I had the best time at our wedding and we tribute a lot of that to Joel Young band who made our night absolutely amazing. Not to mention that we changed our first dance song the day before our wedding and they accepted the challenge without hesitation! They were truly unbelievable and I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat.

    Hi Danielle - thanks for sharing your thoughts about having the Joel Young Band as part of your special day. You definitely had a crowd that loved to dance, and that's our kind of crowd! And we're always more than happy to make any changes to ensure that your wedding day was exactly what you wanted it to be. Thank you!

  • When the Joel Young band asked me if I would write a review of their performance at my wedding, I was more than happy to do so because let me tell you, the Joel Young band knows how to make an event EXPLODE into a dancing, singing crazy-good time! As soon as they hit the stage, it was less than 3 minutes before the entire place was shouting, singing, losing their shoes and their minds! Trust me, THIS is the band you want at your wedding; they’re not just onstage, they’re all over the place, mixing it up with the crowd while they’re rocking out the BEST song list you ever heard. I’ve been to several other weddings they played, and they have it all from their professional yet UNstuffy look to their kickass talent and presence - if you’re looking for a group for your reception, you should really consider the Joel Young band. They’re not like any wedding band I’ve ever seen, and they turned my wedding from a stereotypical reception into a night I’ll never forget!

    Hi Amanda - thanks for the awesome review! You and your guests definitely were in the mood for a real party, and we are thrilled to have been part of all of the fun. It was a night that none of us will ever forget!

  • From inception to our ceremony, cocktail hour and finally the unforgettable party, you were so amazing. Thanks for your guidance on entertainment in the months prior, your perfect execution of our specialty song choices. Thanks for making our Aunt Sophie feel like a queen on the floor with that romantic Engelbert Humperdink song! She knew you learned that old forgotten song for her, and she was honored you took the time to learn it [I know you’ll never play it again] and she thrilled to dance to it. We trusted you with the most important night of our lives and you were perfect! Please let us know when you are playing in NJ!

  • Me and my wife got married on Shelter Island and were priveledged to have the Joel Young Band provide the soundtrack to our special day. Not only did they exhibit the highest level of professionalism, they were a great group of musicians. During the ceremony the strings and keys trio provided a classy vibe and executed flawlessly as we picked non traditional songs. And they rocked the reception with the dance floor completely packed! Perfection all around and every guest complimented us afterwards on how much they loved the music these guys provided!

    What a beautiful wedding in a beautiful setting. And it was quite the party too! You and your guests certainly know how to have a great time, and we loved that you kept the party going even after it was officially over. Thanks so much for sharing your review, and for making The Joel Young Band part of your special day!

  • The Joel Young was absolutely fantastic at our wedding. I'm a rocker, my wife loves the Top 40s and my parents are classic rockers. Every single one of us left the party raving about the band. They sounded spot on with all the songs. We are big music fans and the band killed it on every single song. All the guests, young and old, never left the dance floor because the band knows how to put together a great set. One amazing things about the band is that if there is a special song you are thinking of, they can learn it. We picked a unique Coheed and Cambria song for our first dance and they outdid themselves. It was a very special moment for us that wouldn't have been possible with another band. You will not regret booking the Joel Young Band for your special event.

    David, it was an honor being the Band for your wedding. We loved learning those songs that made your wedding extra special and unique. If you have a chance, can you post or send us some pics of your wedding, that would be awesome !!

  • Highly recommend the Joel Young Band! They worked so seamlessly with our wedding venue to provide us with the greatest experience of our lives. My wife and I remember sitting there watching people dance all night, and knew that our wedding would be one talked about for ages to come. It wouldn't have been that special or that memorable without these guys. They knew exactly what song to play next to keep everyone on the dance floor, and that was our main goal!

  • The Joel Young band played at my wedding 2 years ago and they were incredible. The band was truly everything I wanted from a band playing at my wedding. They were not too loud as many bands can be, they got all of my guests up and dancing, they had the perfect song for each moment of the wedding and each member of the band was so nice ! While planning our wedding my husband and I did not give too many specific songs we wanted played at the wedding instead we told the band genres that we love and the band hit the nail on the head, I specifically remember while eating the main course my husbans and I singing and dancing in our seats while eating. I highly recommend the Joel young band for any special event !

  • I could not have asked for a better wedding band and overall experience. As a musician and someone who has seen hundreds of bands, I have very high standards and Joel exceeded every single one. From the very beginning, Joel was a pleasure to work with - accommodating, professional, and friendly. For starters, the song we wanted for our first dance was not a typical song performed by dance bands. Joel and his crew learned it for us, perfected it, and performed it in a flawless fashion. The bass player even offered me the lead sheet he used after the wedding as a keepsake. My wife, father-in-law, and I wanted to perform with the band, which Joel and his crew accommodated and welcomed. They learned the song we wanted to perform and made it possible to shine on our big night. Joel offered his guitar and amp to my father-in-law, which was very accommodating. The performance energy and output from this band was like nothing I have seen at any affair I have ever been to. Our guest... Read more
