One of the most sought after East Coast events bands, One Love is offering creative options to meet the needs of couples planning a wedding during this ever-changing time. For an intimate gathering or smaller party, choose a small dance band, cocktail ensemble or specialty group to suit any size party. If you are planning a blow-out dance party in 2022, we can rock the house with our 7-10 piece full dance bands. One Love Music takes the utmost precautions for safety, offering sanitized mics for speeches, shields in front of the singers and horns, and convenient, virtual meetings. And we are imminently flexible if you need to reschedule or make changes to your band or services.

About One Love

Eric Nicolas and One Love is the flagship band of One Love Music, a top-flight boutique entertainment company with offices in New York City and Watch Hill, RI. One Love has rocked hundreds of parties, weddings, concerts, festivals and special events for well over a decade, but they recently made their debut as a completely independent, agency-free music company, providing a full complement of services in-house – without the added fees the agencies charge.

Experience

Eric Nicolas, bandleader, guitarist and lead vocalist, started One Love in the mid-90s performing at Le Bar Bat and other iconic NYC venues. As a sideman in the bands of rock legends like Taylor Dayne and Phoebe Snow, Eric collected the best musicians in NYC to maintain the band's extraordinary musicianship and professionalism: members of One Love have recorded and toured with The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Prince, Sting, Bon Jovi, Steely Dan, Cyndi Lauper, Ray Charles, Rod Stewart, Britney Spears, Marc Cohn, Moby, and many, many others. In the early 00's he was joined by dancer and percussionist Melissa Rodnon, who brought her extensive background in performing arts management and theatrical production to One Love, making them an unstoppable team.

Services Offered

Eric Nicolas & One Love is not only a knock-out dance band, but also offers a variety of other musical services, including a wide selection of ceremony music (from classical guitar to contemporary string arrangements) and cocktail ensembles (including classic jazz, Brazilian bossanova and samba, bluegrass, New Orleans Second Line, coffee-house guitar/vocal, and more). They have an enormous repertoire of contemporary pop and dance, classic rock, funk and soul, R&B and motown, alternative, 80s, country, oldies, and more. They deliver an authentic, tireless hora, reform to orthodox. They can and will learn any of your special requests, and craft a unique, customized setlist that will get every single one of your guests out of their seat and onto the dance floor. They will create a custom arrangement of any requests for your ceremony processionals and recessional; and they can sing in any language, including Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian - and even Chinese.

Areas Covered

Eric Nicolas & One Love is officially based both in New York City and Watch Hill, RI, but they regularly travel up and down the east coast, across the country and internationally. They handle all travel and production arrangements for destination events. You can see more photos and videos on their website or on Instagram. One Love books up to two years in advance and peak Saturdays go fast - call them today!

    Wow, the best of the best!!

    We don’t have enough good things to say about One Love. We hired One Love as our wedding band, and they were extraordinary in every way from start to finish. Professional, talented, experienced - and incredible listeners! They surprised us with a song by my husband’s favorite band during the reception - what a moment.

    The dance floor was packed until the very last second. They crushed the music (both in selection and performance) and delivered the greatest energy and vibe we never imagined was possible.

    They made our wedding an absolute blast - every single guest was raving afterward. One of the best decisions we made for our wedding, I can’t recommend One Love highly enough.

    Thank you, Eric, Melissa, and One Love team! Best and most fun night of our lives!

    The best wedding band we have ever heard!

    One Love was by far the best wedding band we have ever heard, and we have been to many weddings with bands. Our guests were on the dance floor every chance they had! One Love read the crowd perfectly and kept everyone dancing the entire night. So many of our guests have told us that they were incredible. They were so great to work with, especially with last minute changes with COVID. Melissa and Eric were reassuring and ready to deal with any changes or restrictions that would be implemented. We would recommend One Love to any couple for their wedding day, they are well worth it!
