Carlos –

I again wanted to express my deep appreciation to you and your band for the music Saturday night at Mallory’s wedding.  Estrella is outstanding.  I can’t tell you how many of our guests told me that you have the greatest band they ever heard.  Because the music was so terrific, it had the entire party up and dancing all night.  It was especially memorable that I was able to play a song at my daughter’s wedding.  Your kindness and encouragement made that possible and I’ll have great memories of that forever.  Thanks so much for it all.

Warmest wishes,

Dear Karen (and Karen Lloyd Band),

We absolutely cannot thank you enough for all you did to make our wedding the party that it was! The energy and happy vibes that you brought to all of us even before September 5th, from our very first emails and meetings, is something we will always remember!  Thank you for being so accommodating in all of our special requests and working to create the perfect time line and dance party for the night.

You and your team were the greatest band we have had to pleasure of listening to, and we feel blessed you were able to preform for our special day! You all helped make that day and night truly magical for us!

We hope that our relationship continues and we get to have another party with you all in the near future!!

Our sincerest thank you and lots of love,

Kelsey and Michael

Wedding Reception Review: Dane Wright Band

Good evening!

We just celebrated our two year wedding anniversary, and although this is quite delayed – to this day the first thing guests at our wedding say is “Your band was AMAZING!”. We had the Dane Wright Band and it was far and away our best decision. Another frequent comment – “it was like being at a concert!”.  We would be delighted to write a review of this band if ever needed. While we had an amazing venue (The Royalton Mansion in Roslyn) we know the event would not have been the same without the band.

Thank you, thank you!!!!!

Wedding Reception Review: Dylan Matthews Band

Monday, September 21st, 2015


Dylan! Dylan! Dylan!

Words cannot explain how amazing our Vow Renewal was!

One of the best decisions Mike and I made during the wedding planning process was choosing the Dylan Matthews Band for our BIG DAY.  You and your team were awesome!  Your vocalist made our Wedding Song more than it could have ever been and the band made every other detail we envisioned come to life.  All of our friends and family raved that hands down the Dylan Matthews Band was the best band they had ever heard.  It was non-stop dancing all night! We are dying to see and hear the video.


We were in Turks and Caicos and the hotel was experiencing Wifi issues so this email would have come much sooner if it was possible.  We thank you tremendously for being part of our spectacular night!

“Wedding Wire” Review: Brooklyn Sound

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

“Hank Lane’s Brooklyn Sound band was amazing. My husband and I are very picky and don’t like a lot of the classic wedding songs (i.e. Love Shack, Raise Your Glass). Hank Lane made sure that all our needs were met and all of the songs we wanted were played. So many people commented that it was the best wedding band they’ve ever heard. Truly deserving of 5 stars! One of the best wedding vendors we used!”

“The Knot” Wedding Review: Brooklyn Sound

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

“Our guests are still raving about how much fun they had with Brooklyn Sound at our wedding. Hank Lane did an amazing job matching us up with the perfect band for our event. We wanted strings for our ceremony, and they recommended a violin/guitar duo, which was beautiful and perfect for our venue. The band played during dinner, and for the reception, gave a high energy performance that blew all of us away! We had a chance to speak to the band leader Johnny, and several of the band members. They couldn’t have been nicer and did a great job of interacting with the crowd. This band definitely made the party!”

Hey Special!

So here just a few of the comments…”it wasn’t just a wedding, it was an amazing concert; her ballads were awesome—wow, she was incredible; the Karen Lloyd Band members were so sincere and into every moment; they are so talented; they made it so personal; Karen did such a great job as the band leading; they transitioned the special moments perfectly…” And on and on.

You are very special and an incredible talent. Thank you for a most wonderful night and we hope we get to see you again!

All our best,

“Wedding Wire” Review: Marcus Reid Band

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

“We just got married at Cipriani 42nd Street and the Marcus Reid Band kept our guests dancing the entire night! Our guests continue to rave about how great the band was, and it was like they “were at a concert!” Marcus and his band were dressed impeccably and really got into the music and the crowd. All our “dance” songs were sung live by the band and they seriously did an amazing job! We had live entertainment the entire night and not once did the entire band take a break. We also had the band’s keyboardist and guitarist during cocktail hour which was great! Guests were able to mingle and talk, and weren’t overpowered by loud music. The Marcus Reid Band seriously rocked Cipriani and we can’t say enough wonderful things about this young, good-looking, and talented band! THEY WERE AMAZING!”
