Hank Lane Music Wedding Reception Review: Reggie Woods and the Soul Street Band at Guastavino’s, NY

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Hi Spencer,

Please pass along my thanks to Reggie Woods and the Soul Street Band. The band played at my daughter’s wedding at Guastavino’s on Saturday night (6/22/13). I confess, I never had the opportunity to speak with the band on Saturday night, not only being the busy mother of the bride, but also because I was so absorbed in dancing and singing along to the band while celebrating with family and friends.
The bride and groom were thrilled with the music, and found the band so willing to incorporate their wishes to create the festive atmosphere they had imagined.
Some of my favorite moments from the event are seeing my 84 year old mother rocking away; an 80 year old family friend trying to keep up with one of the bridesmaids on the dance floor (he did a good job of it!); and dancing together with all of our extended families who enjoyed this perfect sound for expressing our joy.
Please extend my deepest thanks to the band for creating such a celebratory atmosphere for our special occasion.

Hi Spencer,

These guys did such a great job last night. I did not sit down for one second because every song was better than the last. Thanks for helping us find Dylan and the band, our wedding would’ve been half as much fun without them!

Ps- their version of ‘corrina’ was absolutely perfect!

Dear Dane,

We just wanted to thank you again for an incredible job you and your band did at our wedding. Our guests are still telling us that you were the best band they have ever seen. My best friend said, “Not only was that the best band I have ever seen, it was probably the best concert I have ever been to!” We hope to see you at other weddings soon and we will definitely be recommending you. Thank you once again for a fantastic wedding and making our wedding night the greatest and happiest night of our lives. We have a blast!

Kevin Osborne Band at the New York Botanical Gardens Conservatory Ball 2013

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

This year marked the Kevin Osborne Band’s first performance at the prestigious New York Botanical Gardens Conservatory Ball. The theme of the night was, “An evening in the Italian Renaissance Garden of Padua”, and society members abounded to celebrate the culmination of the pre-summer party season. The party would not have been complete without dinner and dancing in the Conservatory tent. The Kevin Osborne Band opened with swing classics, and had everyone dancing to Top 40 by the end of the evening.

A bit belated, but we cannot thank you enough for making our wedding so much fun and so special! Everyone we spoke to mentioned what an incredible job your band did – it made the event! In fact, a few of our engaged or almost-engaged friends thanked me for finding their wedding band! 🙂

We have found that the band really makes or breaks the wedding and you made ours one for the history books. We have never been to a wedding where a sing-along starts at dinner! Thank you thank you!! We are so grateful!

Henry Marks Agency Wedding Reception Review: Bobby Attiko Band at Four Seasons, NY

Hi Erik and Bobby,

I hope both of you resting and relaxing after a long weekend (Erik, you are probably still exhausted from last night)!  I can not thank you guys enough for everything you did to make Gabi and Alex’s wedding so special!  Bobby, they were OBSESSED with you!!  I don’t know if you noticed, but the bride did not leave the dance floor ONCE while you were playing!  They were so, so, so happy with you guys.  And the guests loved you, as well.  I had 3-4 people come up to me and ask me if I had a card for the band.  Seriously, the music MADE the party.  Thank you all so much!
Erik, please relay my sentiments to the forro band, as well.  I really liked their music and thought they did such a good job!
Can’t wait until our next party together!!!

Dear Erik and Bobby,

Thank you so much for making our wedding THE best party ever. People from Brazil to California are talking about how amazing the band was and how they want to “listen to you on their ipods all day” (direct quote).
The level of energy was incredible and Bobby, you and your band are perfect! We could not be happier with how the music went.
Erik, the forró band at the cocktail hour was great! Please tell them how happy we were with their performance.
Thank you again for everything! And thank you Molly for introducing us to such amazing, talented musicians!
Gabi and Alex
