Henry Marks Agency Wedding Reception Review: Marcus Reid Band

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Hi Marcus,

I hope this email finds you well! I apologize that it has taken me so long to write this, but I wanted to thank you and your band for your unbelievable performance at our wedding on September 7. Tim and I could not have asked for anything more in a band. Just like you promised, you had all of us on the floor dancing the night away – it was just surreal! I cannot tell you how many people have said that The Marcus Reid Band is by far the best wedding band they have ever heard. Our guests are still raving about you. Thank you for making our wedding reception the party of a lifetime!

All My Best,
Lauren Simon O’Brien

P.S. We’ll be calling you to do our future kids’ bar/bat mitzvahs!

Henry Marks Agency Corporate Holiday Party: Marcus Reid Band

Monday, January 5th, 2015

Marcus,

I cannot thank you enough for last night! Everyone has been raving about the Marcus Reid Band, including Maureen (president of the company), and how much fun they had! It is always a challenge to impress a room full of event planners, and you did it. I could not have pulled this night off without you and your entire band!

Thank you times a million! I look forward to First Protocol working with you in the future! I will be sending your contact details out to the entire team on Monday.

Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception Review: Dane Wright Band

Monday, December 15th, 2014

Dane,

What can we say?  Your performance at our wedding was totally out of this world.  I have never, ever had more fun dancing at any other wedding, and I’ve certainly never seen a crazier dance-floor.  It was packed the entire night!!!  I’m still in awe that the most fun wedding I’ve ever been to was MY OWN.  We really feel that way.  You had everyone from 14 to 80 years old out on the floor the entire night… you brought people to tears…it was insane.

On top of the unbelievable music, you were able to keep the night moving along at a perfect pace and I know that’s hard to do.  I’m still getting contacted by friends and family every single day asking who the incredible band at our wedding was and you can be sure that we’ve been singing your praises non-stop.  I can only hope that that one of our friends hires the Dane Wright Band so I can party with you again sometime soon!

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts, you really out-did yourselves.

All the best,

Kristi + Brett

PS – I have a few colleagues that would like your female lead’s number…

PPS – Thank you for trusting my brother with your drum set.  That moment was a real highlight for our family and meant a lot, that was very sweet of you.

Hey Marcus,

Mike (the groom) here from Saturday night. Just wanted to say thank you so much for Saturday! Everyone said the Marcus Reid Band were by far and away the best band they’ve ever seen and Jaclyn and myself absolutely agree. You guys absolutely killed it! Just wanted to thank you again for making the night that much more special. People have been asking me for your info so I’m sure you’ll get some more gigs down the road from our friends and family.

Hope you guys have a great holiday!

Thanks so much,

Mike and Jaclyn

Henry Marks Agency Wedding Reception Review: Marcus Reid Band

Monday, November 24th, 2014

Hi Lori,

Now that my wedding is over  and we’re back from the honeymoon, I wanted to write you myself to let you know how absolutely amazing the Marcus Reid Band was!  They exceeded all of our expectations and more.  Every guest at the wedding told us that they were the best band they have every heard and sounded like they were seeing the real thing at a concert!  The second male singer was just as incredible as Marcus and the two female vocalists were outstanding.  Some of our friends even started dancing with them during one of their sets and they were great sports!  I had requested that the band play a particular song because my friends really love it (Walking on Broken Glass), and Marcus came over to my table personally to let us know that it would be the next song and to get ready!  That attention to detail and service really blew us away.  When the reception was over and my husband and I got in the getaway car, I kid you not that the very first thing out of his mouth was “When can we have another party so we can book this band again?”  I think that says it all!!

Thank you, thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding so wonderful.  Also, the photo booth was a huge hit so that was well worth it!

I’m sure you’ll be hearing from us soon for my sister’s wedding in a couple years 🙂

All the best,

Laura Blau

Hi Dane,

Matt and I just got back from our honeymoon on Friday and our guests continue to flood us with rave reviews of the Dane Wright Band.  I can’t say how thankful we are to have had you all as part of our special day.  Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be (people dancing like maniacs all night long) because of you and we are so grateful.  Thank you again for making it the best night of our lives.

All the best,

Kim & Matt

Marcus-

Just wanted to send another big heartfelt thank you from Luke and I along with our families for helping to make our evening unforgettable. We were so impressed with The Marcus Reid Band and guests are still raving about the music. We think you may be getting a lot of calls in the near future for upcoming weddings 🙂

A few of our guests have requested the song / playlist – do you have that you could share? Please let me know whenever you get a moment.

Thank you!

Hank Lane Music Wedding Wire Review: The Dane Wright Band

“Booking The Dane Wright Band through Hank Lane was hands down one of the best choices we made for our wedding! They had the whole crowd dancing and covered the whole range of genres with their awesome repertoire.”

Hank Lane Music at The Knot Gala 2014

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

Hank Lane Music celebrated The Knot’s fifth annual gala at the New York Public Library last night! The Knot Gala is the bridal industry’s premier event, celebrating New York Bridal Fashion Week and giving guests a sneak peek into this year’s wedding trends. Among over 1,000 attendees were Kevin Jonas with wife Danielle, wedding industry celeb Randy Fenoli (Say Yes to the Dress), and Desiree Hartsock from The Bachelorette (with fiancé Chris) who debuted a new line of Maggie Sottero wedding gowns.

Hank Lane Music’s jazz top 40 quartet killed it with covers of “Titanium” and “All About That Bass”, and DJ Allison got the dance party started with The Who’s “Baba O’Riley” featuring a stellar electric violinist. The Dane Wright Band hit the stage with “Timber” and kept the energy high all night! The dance floor was packed with the industry’s best.

Congratulations to The Knot team, planner extraordinaire Jes Gordon and Marcia & Jeffrey Selden Catering for another amazing gala! Special thanks to Jack Roman for these awesome pics!
