Hank Lane Reviews: The Dane Wright Band at The Pearl River Hilton at Melanie and Kevin’s Wedding

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Hey Dane,

We have been meaning to send you an e-mail since our wedding earlier this year (you played at our wedding at the Pearl River Hilton on. We attended a wedding last night and were reminded of ours,and how amazing you and the rest of your band were. We had such a fantastic time, LOVED the music, and have yet to see another band that even comes close to comparing. A couple of our friends have even requested you guys (but you were booked!).

Thank you again for helping to make our wedding day so great. Hope you are doing well!

Henry Marks Reviews : The Bobby Attiko Band at Temple Israel at Jen and Mike’s Wedding

Thursday, August 30th, 2012


I told you at the end of the wedding that Mike and I couldn’t find the right words to express what a SPECTACULAR, AMAZING, OFF-THE-HOOK job you guys did and how grateful we are. We are still struggling to find the words because you guys really left us speechless. From the moment the night started until the last song, the dance floor was packed and (as you saw) people didn’t want the night to end.Our phones and facebook walls have been blowing up with compliments about you guys and I can only hope it will bring you more amazing weddings to perform at in the future (hopefully ones that we’ll get to attend)! The Spanish music was INCREDIBLE. Our guests (both Latino and American) have told us that it was the best part of the night. Everything was orchestrated to perfection.

Thank you, thank you, thank you–from the bottom of our hearts–for helping to make it the best night of our lives.

Henry Marks Agency Reviews : The Marcus Reid Band at The Ashford Estate at Jennifer and Ryan’s Wedding

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Dear Ian, Mike, Stephanie, and Marcus,

Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make Jennifer’s and Ryan’s wedding a complete dream!  We are not from a family of dancers so you can imagine our concern when Jennifer and Ryan told us they wanted an all out dancing party and that even further, due to their location, we would be planning this for them on our own!  Without all of your guidance and expertise, we would have been lost!  Thank you for being absolutely fabulous at what you do and for recommending Marcus Reid’s Band to deliver the most incredible arrangement and selection of music we could ever ask for.  The kids were beaming all not long, not to mention all of our guests and all that dancing!

We hope to be guests of the band soon and know you will be receiving calls from friends of ours who are currently planning their own sons/daughters weddings!

With warmest regards,

Betty and John


Henry Marks Agency Reviews : The Marcus Reid Band at The Lyford Cay Club at Tatiana and Renzo’s wedding

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Dear Spencer,

Just writing to let you know that Marcus Reid’s Band was absolutely OUTSTANDING!!!!  We received so many accolades from all of our guests both on the selection of music as well as the band’s ability to engage the crowd while still remaining completely professional, tasteful, dynamic, and elegant.  After going thru the planning process, we truly appreciate all the details and time that goes into making a great party and we would not have been able to do so without both your help and that of the Marcus Reid Band.

Thank you for everything,

Tatiana and Renzo


Hank Lane Reviews : The Dane Wright Band at The Garrison at Mike and Faith’s Wedding

Thursday, August 30th, 2012


Two words…KICK ASS!  That’s the simplest way we can describe the performance you and your band put on at our wedding this past Friday. We cannot tell you how many compliments we received from our guests…from the song selection, the band’s instrumental talent, to your Frank Sinatra voice…the best we could have EVER asked for and hired.  You and your bands showmanship, professionalism and talent EXCEEDED our expectations without a doubt.  We wish we were back in that moment on the dance floor, lying on the ground with your lead singer and saxiphone player (Sax-O-Beat) to the song ‘Shout’, just going nuts on the dance floor.  SO much energy!  In our minds right now, our wedding night never ended b/c of moments like that and they will certainly live on in our memories in the days, weeks, months AND years to come.

We are so grateful to you and your band for the hard work and effort you put into preparing for our wedding.  As Erik mentioned that day we met him, he said your band is a ‘true class act’ and ‘one of the HOTTEST event bands out there right now.’  Man, he was right on point.  You couldn’t have executed your performance at our wedding any better and for that, we thank you.  We certainly will pass you and your band’s name along to those looking to book a band for any occasion.  NOT that you need our help in promoting yourselves.  You left quite an impression on our guests and I have feeling you might be getting some calls in the not-so-distant future. 🙂

Thanks again, Dane.  We REALLY hope to see you and your band in action again!  Do you guys do briss-tenings?! 🙂  Seriously, we couldn’t have asked for more perfect wedding entertainment.  If there was one ‘roof raised’ last Friday night, it was most def.

Take care and all the best.  You deserve it!

-Mike and Faith

Henry Marks Reviews: The Kevin Osborne Band at Temple Beth Shalom at Stacy and David

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

Hi Kevin,

Just wanted to take the time to thank you and your band for the incredible performances at my daughter Stacey’s wedding.  I cannot believe how remarkably talented you guys are.  My guests have been calling me nonstop and raving about the music.  They told me they have not danced that much at a wedding in a long time, the music was so wonderful they could not sit down.  The party was extremely high-energy all because of you and your band.  All I can say is how amazing, fantastic, and incredibly wonderful the night was all because of your performances.  Cannot wait to be a guest at one of your future engagements!
