Hank Lane Reviews : The Dane Wright Band at Gurney’s Inn at Andrew and Elise’s Wedding

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012


Obviously having the right band can make or break an event and there’s no question that the Dane Wright Band went above and beyond in helping to make our wedding better than we could have ever imagined.

Even though we had initially only seen videos of the band, we could tell they were going to be awesome.  We were able to meet with Dane beforehand and we loved how much we were on the same page with respect to the type of music we wanted, the flow and timing of the evening, and overall vibe of the band.  We liked that the band had been together for so long and grown up as friends and musicians — you could tell they love what they do and it showed.

Once the party got started, the band was non-stop high energy and they absolutely crushed it from start to finish.  They really connected with the crowd and had everyone on the dance floor all night long … the saxophonist was even playing on the floor during Shout! We loved that they managed to integrate themselves among our guests both on the dance floor and around the tables.  The volume level was great for young and old and they played an awesome mix of songs that appealed to generations young and old.  Everyone has continued to rave about the Dane Wright Band to us and we really couldn’t have been happier with them.  We can’t say enough positive things about Dane Wright & crew and we know we’ll see them at plenty of other friends and families weddings soon!

Dear Bobby,

We are on our layover for the honeymoon and we just couldn’t leave without saying thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We have gotten phone call after phone call just raving about the Bobby Attiko Band. You really did make the night exactly what we wanted and we can’t thank you enough! We had such a blast the entire time, couldn’t stop smiling, and it was because of the tone you set right from the start and continued it the entire night through. I’m usually all about a hand written note, but we honestly couldn’t leave without expressing the sincerest and utmost level of gratitude. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We hope that we attend another party with you again soon!!!

With love,

Amanda and Michael

Hank Lane Reviews : Dane Wright Band at Liz and Peter’s wedding at The Wainwright House

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012


Thank you so much for the amazing job you and your band did on Saturday.  Our phone hasn’t stopped ringing with glowing reviews from our guests.  We had an absolute blast with you guys – from group singalongs to ‘We Are Young’ to dancing with the singers in the middle of the dance floor to lying on the floor with you all during “Shout” – you were awesome.  The Dane Wright Band found the perfect balance of taking input from our song requests while adding in great songs that fit the mood of the crowd.  Even despite near record heat, you didn’t hold anything back and made it impossible for us to drag our sweaty selves off the dance floor.  You all were an integral part of what made the night so memorable, and we can’t thank you enough for that.

Hope you had a good rest of the weekend.

All the best,

Liz, Peter, and family

P.S.  Spencer – thanks for all of your help upfront – as promised, Dane and team was everything we could have hoped for!

Thanks so much for everything Kim.

All music was spectacular. Bobby is such a great guy, so talented and sweet. We really loved him and all my guests were really raving over the  band. No one was sitting – even the die hard non dancers were rockin’ and rollin’. We couldn’t have asked for anything more, every part was great, and the Bobby Attiko Band knocked it out of the park. We had fun at the after party as well, the DJ and lighting were great! Truly can’t thank you enough.

Beyond happy xooxxo

Hi Artie-

Meg and I have just returned from our honeymoon and wanted to sincerely thank you for such an incredible performance at our wedding.  We were excited when we heard your mixes in the studio, but WOW we were blown away with how amazing you and the band sounded in person.  The acoustic background music during cocktails was fantastic – we LOVED your song selections!!  After dinner, the rock and roll, ballads, classic anthems and new pop songs had all of our guests dancing and partying throughout the entire night having an incredible time – I wish it could have gone on longer!  You are a truly gifted group of musicians with the ability to play an unbelievable range of songs and styles… with ALL of them sounding perfect.  Of the hundreds of weddings that our guests have collectively attended, there was resounding agreement that the Artie Stuart Band was the best they’ve ever heard.  We can’t thank you enough for an unforgettable night!!!  Well done!!!!

All the best,

Meg & Ryan
