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 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!
Hi from the middle of the Mediterranean! Mike and I wanted to say THANK YOU so, so much. We had the best time and literally couldn’t have danced any harder — seriously, in all the photos we’ve seen so far, we are a hot mess. You made our dream of a “classy frat party” wedding a reality and no one else could’ve done it better. Also, all our friends are, like, obsessed with you now.
Where’s the best place to leave a rec for the Marcus Reid band!? Let me know. 🙂
Tess & Mike
Hi Marcus and Spencer,
I have to send you a note and simply say THANK YOU!
Spencer – you were spot on the minute you directed us towards going with Marcus.
Marcus – you were absolutely incredible!
From start to end, you rocked it and covered everything we were hoping for.
We can’t begin to tell you how many people told us yesterday that it was absolutely the best band they have ever heard. We have already given your names to a few people 🙂
Thank you for being such a pleasure to work with and making our Montauk wedding everything we could have ever wished for.
I truly hope to see you again – SOON!
Thank you both so much!
To Carlos and Gotham Project Band:
Thank you! Thank you for making our night so special. Carlos, you were so easy to work with. You did everything you could to make our night incredible. Our guests were dancing all night and we legit had people telling us that our band was the best they’d ever seen. Every member of your band was a true professional. I have received endless compliments regarding the choice of band. We considered going with a DJ but we are so glad we didn’t!
Rachel and Robert
Carlos and the Gotham Project, I think it’s safe to say that I never stopped dancing. Gotham Project Band was more than what we were expecting. Carlos please forward my thank you to the band for being the ringleaders in what was such a great night. Andrew and I had an absolutely amazing time. Our guests did as well – everyone couldn’t stop talking about how incredible the band was. They really set the tone for a fantastic night, playing hit after hit. The dance floor was never empty which is exactly what we wanted. There were family members who are known to never dance up on their feet, dancing like maniacs. It was perfect.
Thank you so much for all your help in planning and coordinating such a great night for us. Hank Lane was so easy to work with and absolutely delivered.
