Henry Marks Agency Wedding Reception Review: Marcus Reid Band

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Hi Justin,

I just wanted to drop a note to follow up on our chat.

The Marcus Reid Band was positively exceptional.  They exceeded our expectations in every way, and we were hoping for the world, because the music can make or break a wedding reception.  They played exactly what we requested and what they promised.  Marcus himself is an endless ball of fun energy.  He is the perfect band leader – he knows how to read the crowd and create a fun atmosphere on the dance floor that everyone wants to get out of their seats to be a part of.  I can’t praise Marcus and the band enough – they were the talk of the night.  And to top it off, you were a pleasure to work with every step of the way.  I highly recommend Hank Lane – you won’t get a better experience anywhere else.

Talk soon and thanks again for everything,


Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception Review: Dane Wright Band

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Hi Dane,

We just wanted to thank you and your band for a wonderful job at our wedding this past Saturday at the Rockleigh.  We had an absolute blast.  You guys were fantastic, and everyone hasn’t stopped talking about your band and asking where we found you and the name of your band as well.  All of our guests have been saying to us that your band was the best band they have ever seen, and some have even said you were better than the band at their own wedding!  You played all the music we wanted, the crowd didn’t sit down, and it was just an all around great time.  You were so accommodating with our needs and requests, and we could not have been happier.  I wish we can do it all over again.  I definitely hope to see you and your band soon at another wedding, and you can be certain we will be recommending you to our friends and family.  Thanks once again for an amazing job and wedding!

Hank Lane Music Dinner Dance Review: Bobby Attiko Band at The Children’s Hearing Institute’s 30th Anniversary Event

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013


I would like to thank you and the members of the Band for participating in The Children’s Hearing Institute’s 30thAnniversary Event.  It was an amazing night and as in the past – everyone raved about the Band. I hope you get some business out of it as several people asked me “who you were”.

I thank you & Hank Lane for making it possible to have such great talent and keep within budget.  We are truly grateful and you have the appreciation of all the children who depend upon our services.  I look forward to working with you again next year.  (I feel now that people will only attend our events – not because of the cause, but because of the band).  J

Great Job – and thank you!!

Hi Justin!

Just wanted to thank you for recommending Dane’s band. They were amazing and added so much energy and excitement to our wedding. They were just the right pick. Please forward this note to them on our behalf. Thanks!


Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed having you and your band play at our wedding. Everyone keeps raving about how much fun they had and what amazing entertainers you guys are. We loved how you interacted with our guests (someone told us your singer was even singing from the balcony at some point!) and had everyone dancing and smiling. So many people told us it was the best wedding band they had ever seen. Thanks again for making our wedding a party to remember!

Henry Marks Agency Wedding Reception Review: Bobby Attiko Band at Mountain Ridge Country Club, NJ

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Hi Bobby,

I can’t get over how amazing you and your band were on Saturday. You put on an incredible performance and our guests have not stopped telling us how awesome you were. One of our friends even said he’s never had so much fun at a wedding where he didn’t know anyone. Best night of my life and the playlist was PERFECT!  If possible, do you have a playlist from the evening?  I want to download all the music so can listen to it all over again on our honeymoon.

Thanks for everything,

Hey Bobby,

We just got back from Hawaii honeymoon and are now back to work again, but still daydreaming about the beaches.

I wanted to thank you for the awesome show you guys put on for our wedding; you really made it a fun celebration.

By any chance would you have a recording or even the set list from our event?  It would be a nice keepsake.

Let me know and thanks again.

Be well,


Henry Marks Dinner Dance Review: Dylan Matthews Band at Belle Haven Club, CT

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013


Dylan and his band were great. It seems everyone remarked about how good they were. After seating everyone a full hour late (it was beautiful weather) we finally got rocking about 9:30. They had everyone dancing within five minutes. If there was not room on the floor, they were dancing between the tables. A couple people said if they closed their eyes they could not have determined the difference between the actual recording artists or Dylan’s musicians.

I’d be surprised if there aren’t a number of inquiries from parents with as yet unmarried daughters.

Thanks for your guidance throughout and please pass these comments and thanks on to Dylan.

(Their wedding was May 18th, 2013 at The Foundry)

When you’re right….

You had suggested Dane based on your interpretation of my daughter’s personality and the makeup of the guest list.

Dane Wright took control of the evening. He and the group had vitality, creativity, personality—I could go on and on.

Our group was rocking and rolling all night.  Your musicians were, by far, better than we could have possibly  imagined.

They were unbelievably good.

Everybody left with a smile. Kudos to you. Applause to them.

Thank you, thank you, thank you

I am still humming.

Hi Dane –

Tom told me you wanted to see the picture of your guys rocking out on the dance floor. It’s such a great shot! One of my friends snapped it on her iphone. I can’t wait to see the proofs from our photographer. I’m sure there will be tons of great dance floor pics!

I can’t thank you enough for making our wedding such an incredible, energetic, memorable, fun event. I wish I could relive the whole night! I’m sure Tom already told you, but our friends and family are still talking about how great the music was. I will definitely be writing you guys a glowing review on weddingwire. I know that tons of brides pour through those review websites (I was one of them!), so I would be happy to highly recommend your band!

Thanks again for everything!
