I will preface this by saying I am not someone who usually acts on hunches or gut feelings. I usually research the HELL out of things before making a decision, especially when it is a major spend. From the first time I spoke with Janis, I knew she and her band would make our wedding a personalized experience, something unique to me and my husband. We listened to a couple of videos online and read some reviews, but not a lot. And then we went to a showcase. This was the first and last showcase we attended. My now husband and I decided after their first set that the Janis Nowlan Band was the perfect band for our wedding. They are true musicians, not just wedding singers. Every single one of this 11 piece band is magnificent. Janis is both the bandleader and the clerk of the works -- she pays attention to every detail to make sure song requests are honored, the wedding party and parents announced, and the party runs smoothly. In dealing with her in the months, weeks, and days leading up to the wedding, I would have thought that ours was the only wedding on their calendar! Our wedding was just a few weeks ago and the notes from guests are still streaming in -- most of them comment on how amazing the band was! Everyone from age 8 to 85 literally danced from the get-go until the last note. So fun!

Janis Nowlan Band Seacrets Wedding Reception Beach Party"Janis was amazing. She really got what we were looking for – a complete range in music genres. Everything from old standards to Motown to some funky 70’s/80’s thrown in for good measure. Not every band is up to the task, but Janis and her gang of maestros carried it off!!!! And I would book them again in a heartbeat."

"You will be totally blown away with Janis and the quality of the performance of the band. It was everything I always wanted!"

"The band was very important to us, and we listened to everyone in the Philadelphia area – Janis was our top choice by a landslide!"

"YES, they wowed everyone, and there was not one moment without her magical mixture of music from beginning to end! Her forte is her extensive repertoire of songs! Janis is a true professional, courteous, and well-organized. She is flexible and listens closely to what your desires are! She is a wonderful emcee as well. She cares sincerely about every bride and groom and the wedding guests. This isn’t just a “gig” for her. She loves what she does, and her joy and excitement as well as that of the band is ever present!! She is a lovely, lovely person. She sings herself and plays the piano. Her band members are so talented! Janis utilizes well the strengths of the horn sections, the amazing drummer, and her 3 incredible vocalists. The choreography is spectacular! You would think you were at a concert! Our guests enjoyed a full night of dancing!"
