July 2024 Wedding

We had Brooklyn Sound at our wedding at Crystal Plaza this past weekend, and they were incredible!!! They had the crowd on the dance floor the entire night and really knew how to read the room. It was also clear that Jonny listened closely to our specific requests because he hit on every one of them. We are so happy we chose this band for our special day. 10/10 would recommend!!!

Cory LS is the perfect band!

We were so stoked to work with the Cory LS Band at Hank Lane and they lived up to every expectation. All of the musicians are so talented, so fun, and so kind. Cory is truly an amazing band leader with the most incredible energy. The band had our guests dancing all night long - we also had some performance from guests (bride and mother of groom) and they were easily able to accommodate. Literally no notes! They were perfect.
