On WeddingWire since 2016
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 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.
With their famously encyclopedic repertoire, this band can rock a party with their core 7-piece dance band up to their full 12-piece band with a 4-piece horn section, strings, percussion, and more; pricing depends on the size of your band, the location of your venue, the date and times, and more.
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 '00s, 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.
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, the 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 one of your guests out of their seats and onto the dance floor. They will create a custom arrangement of any requests for your ceremony processionals and recessionals, and they can sing in any language, including Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian - and even Chinese.
Eric Nicolas & One Love is officially based in New York City and Watch Hill, RI. They regularly travel up and down the east coast, across the country, and internationally. They handle all travel and production arrangements for destination events.
