Karen Lloyd Band Destination Wedding Band Review

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Hi Lori,

I appreciate the good wishes.

The wedding was truly very special. We have already heard from most people in attendance what made it magical was the warm feeling in the room and how connected everyone felt to Jason and Rebecca. This is something you cannot pay for and i must tell you that the Karen Lloyd Band also picked up on that.

The Karen Lloyd Band was absolutely awesone to work with in every way. We had a few special requests along the way and she was totally flexible and one of the most professional and NICEST people in every way. Our wedding designer who does every big event in the whole region told me he has heard all of the best bands from Atlanta Chicago etc and Karen was the best he ever heard. Trust me everyone in attendance agreed. They were beyond amazing.

Thanks to you for all of your assist along the way.

My daughter told my wife and I she had a fairy tale wedding that was beyond anything she hoped for.

All the best

Wedding Band Reception: The Dylan Matthews Band

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Hi Spencer,

I’m emailing you from my married name- but I’m Raina Krasnow 🙂

I can’t remember if I already sent this email but I just wanted to email Hank Lane and tell them how TRULY amazing the Dylan Matthews Band was at my wedding!  They were an unforgettable band that my friends and family members are still raving about!  They played all different types of music to cater to all of the guests wants and desires- it was just simply perfect!  When they jumped (in unison of course) on to the dance floor with their brass instruments all of the guests were screaming!  It was such a blast!  I have a wedding almost every weekend it seems and no other band even compares to Dylan Matthews Band.  They are vibrant and talented and surely know how to throw a party!!!!

Dylan, the band leader, was amazing to work with throughout the process.  He was accessible by phone and email whenever I needed to talk.  He helped me create my playlist and he was willing to learn new songs I absolutely needed to have my wedding.  His heart and soul is with the band it really shows!

Thank you for making my wedding perfect!  Everyone knows the band makes or breaks the wedding- and as you can tell… the band killed it!

I am still smiling thinking about my special day- I can’t wait to see the video!

Thanks again,

Raina and Tracy

Wedding Wire Review: The Dane Wright Band

“Booking The Dane Wright Band through Hank Lane was hands down one of the best choices we made for our wedding! They had the whole crowd dancing and covered the whole range of genres with their awesome repertoire.”

Hank Lane Music at The Knot Gala 2014

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

Hank Lane Music celebrated The Knot’s fifth annual gala at the New York Public Library last night! The Knot Gala is the bridal industry’s premier event, celebrating New York Bridal Fashion Week and giving guests a sneak peek into this year’s wedding trends. Among over 1,000 attendees were Kevin Jonas with wife Danielle, wedding industry celeb Randy Fenoli (Say Yes to the Dress), and Desiree Hartsock from The Bachelorette (with fiancé Chris) who debuted a new line of Maggie Sottero wedding gowns.

Hank Lane Music’s jazz top 40 quartet killed it with covers of “Titanium” and “All About That Bass”, and DJ Allison got the dance party started with The Who’s “Baba O’Riley” featuring a stellar electric violinist. The Dane Wright Band hit the stage with “Timber” and kept the energy high all night! The dance floor was packed with the industry’s best.

Congratulations to The Knot team, planner extraordinaire Jes Gordon and Marcia & Jeffrey Selden Catering for another amazing gala! Special thanks to Jack Roman for these awesome pics!

Wedding Band Review: The Reggie Woods Band

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Hi Reggie and Lynette –

I’m sorry for the delay, we got back from our honeymoon last week and are slowly adjusting to married life!

We just wanted to thank you for helping to make our wedding the best night of our lives. Every time we have talked to any of our guests, the first compliment they have given us is that the band was amazing. You played the perfect mix of songs for everyone and made sure that every guest had a great time. Everyone danced the whole night, which was exactly what we wanted. The whole band was so talented and played every genre so well. We just hope that our friends hire you for their weddings so we can dance to your music again! Thank you for making our wedding so much fun and so special.

We would be happy to be a reference for you in the future. Thank you!!

Love, Lauren and Jason

Wedding Reception Review: The Karen Lloyd Band

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Karen – I can’t thank you enough for such an AMAZING night!!   Everyone is still raving about it.  We felt like we were at a concert.  Actually, 100 concerts because it felt like every artist you covered was right there on stage with you.  Each song was a different experience.  I couldn’t have asked for more!

Kim – Thank you for being so awesome and knowing exactly what I wanted.  I know I don’t need to tell you how much they rock, but they really freakin’ ROCKED.

I always hear brides say that they don’t remember their weddings and they go so fast.  Well, I will never forget mine.  Dancing for 5 hours straight….what’s better??   Best.  Wedding.  Ever.



Wedding Reception: The Marcus Reid Band

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

marcus_montageMarcus! Todd and I wanted to thank you for the excellent performance at our wedding.  The Marcus Reid Band was just so fantastic, I don’t think words can describe.  We were so beyond pleased.  We had the best time, EVER. You kept the party going the entire night, sang the best songs that mixed perfectly with the crowd.  You read the crowd just right.  I don’t think I left the dance floor once!

I had so many people who were floored, really were, by The Marcus Reid Band. They couldn’t believe how lively you were, how GOOD you were and how much you were able to match the vocals of the songs you sang.

Anyway, thanks again.  You made our night.

Wedding Band Review: The Dane Wright Band

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

The Dane Wright Band is unforgettable! We couldn’t be happier that we picked them. We had heard rave reviews about them from a friend and were so thankful that they were available and not booked when we started looking.

We were blown away. Their sound was absolutely incredible and they were so much fun.  We loved the band members coming out to dance with us and fill the room with energy. For weeks after, friends would email or call saying how great The Dane Wright Band was and that it was the best they had heard.  Thank you Dane for making our wedding day unforgettable- we are forever grateful for your talent!
