Wow....just wow! When people say Hank Lane is the best in the business, they aren't joking! From the start, we were met with such professionalism and kindness, which was so comforting considering wedding planning can get quite stressful (thank you Ian!). After we shared out budget and music interests, we were matched with The Frank Simmons Band. Okay, if you do anything right during your wedding planning, HIRE THIS BAND! Holy moly...they were INCREDIBLE!! Every single person I spoke with at the wedding, all they talked about was the band.Sent on 10/01/2018
Before the wedding, we worked with Morgan who helped us put together our music playlist that night. There's a lot of bands out there that can't play every song you want, but not these guys. They know EVERYTHING. They played everything from Bruce Springsteen, to The Killers, to Scotty Doesn't Know (which was a huge hit, by the way)! Also, they never stopped playing throughout the entire night, not even during dinner!
For anyone that asks me about my wedding day, the first thing I will do is recommend The Frank Simmons Band. YOU GUYS ROCKED THE PARK SAVOY'S ROOF OFF!

My fiancé and I recently had our engagement party on June 9 and we hired a Hank Lane band for our music for the night. The band was absolutely amazing! They created such a great energy in the room that everybody was up and dancing all night! I love how the band interacts with the guests and gets everybody up. The staff at the office was so sweet and kept in contact with me throughout the whole process to make sure that every detail and music selection was to our liking. Hank Lane made our night and a party to remember. I am still getting rave reviews from our guests about how amazing the lead singer Melodie Ray was and the entire band. We will definitely be going back to them when we plan our wedding !Sent on 06/11/2018

Russ Bennett and his band were amazing at our wedding!
Russ Bennett and his band were amazing!! Our wedding was everything we had hoped it would be--and more--and that in no small part is due to their efforts. From coordinating pre-wedding to the wedding itself, they all ensured that everything went smoothly and was stress-free, so we were really able to enjoy ourselves and not worry. All of the songs--especially those for our processional/recessional and special dances--were played perfectly and just how we had envisioned them. They made sure all of our requests and needs were taken care of, and most importantly, did a great job reading the crowd and playing music to keep everyone on the dance floor.Sent on 04/10/2019
We cannot tell you how many people came up to us during the wedding or have told us over the past few days how "the band was the best wedding band they've ever seen" or how they "never danced so much at a wedding before." We think the best compliment may have come from the groom’s dad, though, who said "The band was phenomenal. I think I danced more during this wedding than I did in every other wedding I've ever been to combined!"
Thank you again!
Let's get the party started and keep it going. We work with Hank Lane all the time .Amazing bands They bring a much higher level of entertainment
