New York Wedding Band Review: Marcus Reid Band

Monday, August 1st, 2016

Hi Marcus,

Thank you for absolutely CRUSHING our wedding. You really brought the energy and set the tone for our wedding. So many guests came up to us and told us that they’ve never heard a better wedding band.

Thank you, thank you. You guys were incredible.

Artie Stuart Band: Wedding Band Review

Monday, August 1st, 2016

Hi Artie!

Erica and I wanted to write you a note to let you know how great you and the band were.  It was a pleasure working with you on the set list and flow of things leading up to the wedding, but we couldn’t have imagine how amazing everything would sound.  You guys are truly spectacular.  And you really have an exceptional feel for the flow of the evening and where to take things.  All the guests raved about the music.  I found myself in awe a number of times as well.  Thank you so much for being such a huge part of the festivities.
Corbin and Erica
PS: If there are any review sites that you’re listed on, we would be happy to post a review.  You’re the best!!!


Eric Nicholas and One Love Band Review

Thursday, July 28th, 2016


I am sorry that I never really got to meet you in person, but I do want to thank you for the performance on Saturday. We have had so many friends call and text to make the effort to tell us that you are the best band that they have ever seen at a wedding or anywhere there was dancing! That comment has come from the twenty something crowd as well as the fifty something, so you must be doing everything right. Even my mother in law, who is eighty eight has to wonder how we convinced you to play for us. You all deserve every ounce of praise, so I wanted to share that with you.
Every song was done to perfection! Thanks so much for adding in our new requests as well.  You made our celebration so much fun and created a very special memory.
With all the best wishes to you and your bandmates,
Sincere Thanks,
Robin S

NYC Wedding Band Review: Luxe

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016


“Incredible”, “the most fun we have ever had”, “this band is going to be hard to top at any future wedding we go to” – these are just a few of the comments from our guests and we cannot agree more.

You guys kept everyone on the dance floor all night and everything flowed so perfectly. Even our 91 year old grandfather and his friends (who claim they are very picky with music and don’t often dance at weddings) were on the dance floor multiple times throughout the night.

You made our party truly the best night of our lives. As I mentioned yesterday, your Hank Lane video does not nearly do justice to how you perform live and the energy you put into every song. It was so evident you love what you do because every person in the room could tell.

PS: We will send you the photos of your band mate doing high kicks with the groomsman when we get our photos back – priceless.

Marcus Reid Band Wedding Band Review on The Knot

Monday, July 18th, 2016


MARCUS knot review HMA FORMATMarcus Reid and his band are incredible…Marcus Reid delivered! The dance floor was always shaking and I cannot keep count of the number of people who came up to me throughout the night and after the wedding to tell me how much fun they had and that they’ve never heard and danced to a better band than the one we had at our wedding. We all felt like we were at the best concert we’ve ever been to but Marcus still always kept the focus on me and my husband. He is an incredible performer and every member of his band is amazingly talented and professional. You must have the Marcus Reid Band for your wedding if you want to dance the night away with huge smiles on your faces!”

Wedding Band Review: Dane Wright Band

Monday, July 18th, 2016

Dane and Band,

Paul and I want to thank you so much for making our wedding so perfect. You were absolutely amazing and we still are receiving calls and email with your praises! Thank you does not even cover how much we truly appreciate all you did to make our wedding day and night perfect is every way!

From the cocktail hour music to the very first song all the way to the very last song (after two encores) the dance floor was always packed! You guys knew right from the start how to keep our guests dancing and enjoying themselves the entire night.

Having great music was something that was very important to us and you and the band surpassed all of our expectations in every way possible. We are beyond grateful. Thank you for an amazing night!

All our love,

Brittany and Paul Mancuso


Brooklyn Sound: Wedding Reception Review

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016

Hi Kim and Stephanie –

Hope you are both enjoying your summer! Kyle and I are finally settling back into our normal life following our wedding and honeymoon in early June.  We just wanted to send you both a quick email to let you know that Jonny and Brooklyn Sound did an absolutely incredible job with our wedding.  Throughout the night, and in the weeks since our reception, we have had so many friends and family members tell us that we had the *best* wedding dance floor they had ever experienced.  That’s entirely thanks to the energy and talent that Jonny and the other band members brought to our event.  We are so grateful for their work to make our night truly magical!

After having spent the last 13 months of my life making thousands of decisions about wedding details, I can tell you that one of the single best decisions we made the entire process was booking Brooklyn Sound through Hank Lane.  I just wanted to be sure that we shared that sentiment with you.  Can you also please share our thoughts and our thanks with with the band?

In the coming weeks, as we wind down with all the post-wedding wrap-up, we will also be sure to post an online review on Wedding Wire and/or The Knot.  Thanks again for all your help in selecting Brooklyn Sound and planning our ceremony, cocktail, and reception music!
