Thanks so much for all your help booking the band for True and Perry’s wedding! They chose Nocturne, after listening to a lot of different videos featured on your website, and the band turned out to be a great choice!
They had our guests out dancing from the very first song, and the dance floor was still full for the last dance. Matt De Palma called me a few days after I sent him the proposed evening schedule for the reception at The Jefferson and suggested a few changes, explaining that his proposed timing would allow the band to better build up energy and keep people dancing right up to the end. Once he explained his reasoning, we made his suggested changes for the time of the cake cutting/garter and bouquet toss so that the band could play longer segments. Clearly his strategy worked, since the dance floor was packed all night and we all had a great time. EVERYONE was out there, from grandmothers to three-year-olds, and all the ages in between. Don’t know how we could have gotten a better band!
We would be glad to recommend Sam Hill and Nocturne to anyone. What a fun night we had! Many thanks to you and to the band!

Nocturne was absolutely amazing! We cannot say enough good things about them. Matt and Megan were such a pleasure to deal with leading up to the big day- they were so kind and receptive, and always willing to take my calls. Our first dance song was so magical and we will never forget it. At the reception, the band blew us away. We never left the dance floor and had such a blast. They played an awesome mix of fun songs and surprised us with a huge repertoire of current songs being played on the radio now. The band and the lead singers are insanely talented and we couldn’t have imagined a better wedding with any other band. We will be sure to send over some fun pictures of the band and dance floor once we get our proofs.

Nocturne was AMAZING!!!! They were an absolute pleasure to work with, very friendly and helpful leading up to the wedding and the day itself. They rocked it! Everyone was up dancing the entire night and our guests are still talking about how they are rocking to memories of the band. Everyone kept asking me where I found them and how great they were. One guest even told me that for the first half of the night, they thought it was a DJ, because of how clear and amazing they sounded.
Thanks Kelly Layden
I feel like I am giving away Sam Hill’s best kept secret. We choose to go with Nocturne for our June wedding. To say they were phenomenal would be an understatement. They completely blew every one of our guests away…each song they sung was better than the next. We couldn’t have been happier. We have gotten endless compliments about them and at least a dozen people wanting their information. They aren’t your average wedding band (in a good way). At the end of the night, we were unfortunately pulled away to deal with an out of hand guest which caused us to miss the end of our wedding. They were SO gracious to play another song so that we could end our wedding on a positive note. I am so thankful for that! Bonus: Working with Sam Hill and Nocturne was so easy. They listened to what we wanted and didn’t want. Here are just a few comments from our guests: “They could sing everything…and very well!” “I loved how they interacted with the crowd! We were on the dance floor all night.” “I kept thinking a DJ was playing songs, but I had to keep reminding myself that it was live music!
Thank you so much to you and all the band members for an unbelievable night Sunday. You and Matt were so easygoing and fun to work with it made planning a breeze. The music was something I was completely confident in from the moment we booked you and we definitely were not disappointed!
All of our guests have been RAVING about how amazing the music was! We have several musicians in the family and they all were all blown away. One cousin in particular danced the night away and kept making the mind blown gesture at all of the song changes lol. He said you were DJ and live music all in one due to the amazingly seamless transitions and literally kept trying to explain to us why it was so incredible! We loved having you and your co-vocalist on the dance floor, it made everything just that much more awesome.
You sincerely made our night, and we can’t thank you enough. Our wedding was everything we could hope for. All of your singing, song choices, and music was picture perfect. Thank you, too, for our 1st dance song; I don’t know how we looked but I know we had a blast and the song was perfect!
I’ll be posting reviews over the next few weeks, and if there’s anywhere specific I can post for you please let me know.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
Thank you for reaching out. I am happy to say the Nocturne exceeded all of our expectations. Folks are still talking about how amazing our band was. Several friends told us they thought our first dance song (Hunter Hayes Wanted) was a recording until they looked up and saw Matt singing the song. And the fact that Meghan Rose was willing to learn/sing my wife’s father-daughter dance (a song from Sleeping Beauty that is basically opera and was a surprise for my wife from her father) was incredible. She wouldn’t let us use a recording and told us they’d be more than happy to do it even though it’s a bit unique. I can really say they were incredible and while my wife and I were a bit hesitant with how much they really cost us to have at our wedding, they were worth every penny! They made the night what it was! I’ll make sure my wife leaves feedback on The Knot asap. Thanks again!
This is long overdue, so even more remarkable that we are still talking about HOW AMAZING Nocturne was. Surely the morning after you would expect that, but two months later we are still saying to each other “remember when” and “can you believe they” and “what a fabulous band!” Matt Depalma was very easy to work with—responsive to my phone calls and needs—and super personable the night of our wedding. The band also played all of our “special requests” when they said they would, so I knew what to anticipate and who to round up for the dancing. All that remains to be said? Nocturne was wonderful and made what would certainly have been a very memorable party for us extraordinary.
Thank you for all your help, Hilary Cloos
Adam and I wanted to express our gratitude for the wonderful performance Nocturne put on at our wedding yesterday. You all truly exceeded our expectations and kept the party going all night. The band is so talented and my feet are still killing me! We had a blast thanks to you guys, and you kept the dance floor crowded til the very last song. We received countless compliments from our guests on what an amazing band we had. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding a dream come true. You did a great job with our first dance song, and we really appreciate all of the time you spent chatting with us over the last year answering our many questions.
All the best, Adam and Lauren
I wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks on a fabulous job at Dominika and Steven Leona’s wedding on Saturday. Your music created such a fun atmosphere for the cocktail hour and reception, which made the day so perfect for them both and I know they were elated with the way everything turned out. Your assistance with coordinating the entertainment is greatly appreciated and your talent truly made this wedding something they will be talking about for a long time to come.
You were a pleasure to work with and I look forward to doing business with you again in the future.
Warmest regards, Tammy
“From the start, everyone’s professionalism and attention at Hank Lane was top-notch. [Luxe] took the time to get to know us, get to know what we liked, and went above and beyond to make sure their performance was EXACTLY what we were looking for. Their actual performance surpassed all expectations and more! Their sets and our timeline flowed flawlessly and we can honestly say without bias, they they delivered hands-down, the best wedding entertainment that we were ever a part of. Their energy and sound had virtually all of our guests dancing the night away from start to finish! Bravo, Bravo – our day surely would not have been as special as it was without the Hank Lane Team and great people of Luxe!”
