    The Janis Nowlan Band played at our wedding July 2010 and they were amazing! I have been to so many weddings and they are by far the best band I have heard. Janis did a great job reading the crowd and kept the majority of our guests dancing throughout the entire night. The one comment that my husband and I hear over and over again about our wedding was that people loved the Janis Nowlan Band. Janis was easy to work with before the wedding, was very responsive to all of our questions and played all the songs we wanted to hear! I highly recommend!

    The best band!

    Janis and her band are amazing. We had people coming up to us all night complimenting her and the bad. She helped us create our wedding night schedule and played a great mix of songs everyone loved.

    I absolutely loved working with Janis and her band! They are highly rated for a reason - they deliver talent and professionalism that equate to you and your guests having the absolute best time on the dance floor. Janis truly cares about each wedding - with several phone calls to hammer out every detail for the day of to make you (the bride) stress free! Despite our wedding weather being ridiculously hot - every single person was on that dance floor dancing (and sweating) up a storm and it made me so happy to see my guests having such a fantastic time. I hope to go to weddings in the future where Janis and her band are playing because I know it'll be nothing but a great time. If you are looking for a wedding band - you should just stop here and book The Janis Nowlan band. You won't regret it.

I had the pleasure of working with Janis and her team on a NYE wedding. All I can say is... phenomenal. Not only was Janis incredibly thorough as the event approached and made an effort to communicate with me as the coordinator, but she was friendly and genuinely took an interest in how we could make our couple happiest. The day of the event, her team was timely and worked together to get things set up and ready to go. During the event, the band kept everyone on their feet and made sure to oblige the requests of the couple. I would love to work with this gang again, and hope we do again soon!
