This band is phenomenal! Our guests were out on the dance floor the entire night and our guests keep reaching out to us on how amazing they thought the band was. From the first time, we spoke with Melissa (band manager) and Eric (band lead) we knew we were in good hands. Melissa was extremely organized and kept us in check with making decisions re: the music so the band could get ready. We live in Boston so unfortunately weren't able to meet/see them in person before our NYC wedding but everything was able to be arranged via phone calls. They listened to our vision and kept the party going all night. The singers were phenomenal and got into the party and the sax came out on the dance floor too - which our guests LOVED! I cannot recommend this band enough. We also got the trio for our cocktail hour and it was really lovely and a great addition. They were also super reasonably priced and worth the extra cost for a band over a DJ! If you want a band that sounds great and really knows how to play to your guests they are a sure win!Sent on 05/22/2019

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!Sent on 06/02/2019

One Love is still available on some popular Saturdays in 2019 and we are offering steep discounts on our usual prices. Your exact cost will depend on location, times, party size and a few other factors; but we can take 15%-20% (about $1500-$2500) off of our usual cost for these peak dates.
