About Eric Nicolas & One Love

Eric Nicolas and One Love is the flagship band of One Love Music, a top-flight boutique entertainment company based in New York City and Watch Hill, RI. They are performing music professionals who have played the most coveted venues all over the world, rocked hundreds of parties, weddings, concerts, festivals and special events – and they’re just getting warmed up. One Love has been one of the busiest East Coast party bands 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. One Love books up to two years in advance and peak Saturdays go fast - call them today!

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, Moby, and many, many others. In the early 00's he was joined by percussionist Melissa Rodnon, who brought her 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, such as jazz, Brazilian bossanova, bluegrass and more. They have an enormous repertoire of pop, rock, funk and soul, R&B and motown, alternative, country, oldies, and more. They can and will learn any of your special requests, and craft a unique, customized setlist that will make everyone of your guests get up and dance. Custom arrangements of any request for your ceremony; and they can sing in any language, including Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian - and even Chinese.

Areas Covered

Eric Nicolas & One Love are based both in New York City and Watch Hill, RI, and regularly travel up and down the east coast, across the country and internationally.

    One Love is spectacular!

    One Love was amazing! All of our guests raved about the band. During planning, they were responsive to all of our musical requests and easy to work with when coordinating flights and hotels for our destination wedding. We HIGHLY recommend them!

    Best Band Ever

    From the beginning to the end, the experience was seamless and professional. The entire band was exceptional - I would venture to say that they are probably one of the best bands we have heard!! They made sure everyone had fun and appeared that they also enjoyed playing and interacting with the crowd. Even weeks out from our event, our guests are still talking about how great the band was. We are looking forward to more events with Eric Nicolas and One Love!
