We worked with the Michael Hart band and they were unbelievable!! Having the best band around and keeping everyone on the dance floor was very important to us and they did nothing but exceed our already high expectations. We worked with Lori at Hank Lane to narrow down the list of bands but once we saw the video of the Michael Hart band we knew that they were perfect. We even finalized our wedding date based on Michael Hart's availability. I'm still hearing from friends and family about how this was hands down the best band they have every seen - including "10 times better than Justin Timberlake's performance at the Super Bowl" (which was the next day). I would also recommend going for an electric fiddle in the band - our fiddler was amazing and it really comes across as unique compared to other wedding bands I've seen. Michael was fabulous to work with and such a great guy - they were able to play everything from Barry White to Zedd and everything in between. All around such a positive experience - everyone needs to use this band!

Since our wedding, almost four weeks ago, I have been trying to find the right words to write this review – but in reality, the Marcus Reid Band left us speechless. When we first hired Marcus Reid - I thought it was too good to be true, I thought “what’s the catch?”! So just to make sure I read a few reviews - one review really stood out in the beginning of the planning process and still sticks out to this day. The review said “How many decisions do we have to make when planning a wedding? Only hundreds, right? Well, let me help you make the best and easiest decision you will make by hiring The Marcus Reid Band for your wedding.” It’s 100% true! The Marcus Reid Band puts on the most memorable show – and I say that because although they are a wedding band, they put on a live concert. Many of our friends had Hank Lane bands at their weddings or have been to weddings with Hank Lane bands – each one has said that Marcus Reid Band is the BEST they have seen. Our guests didn’t want to leave at the end of the night and even started chanting “ONE MORE SONG”! Besides being an incredible band leader – Marcus is the nicest person with the GREATEST energy and a pleasure to work with. Hey Marcus, when can we do it again?!
