Nation rocked our daughters wedding. Our guests haven't stopped talking about how fabulous they were. The band makes the party and they really did. I said goodbye to two of our guest who were planing. On leaving about half an hour before the event ended and then I saw them five minutes later on the dance floor. The band was too good and they didn't want to leave.

We chose Sound House for our wedding. This was after visiting and listening to many bands. Our daughter is very knowledgeable about music and bands and we all fell in love with Sound House. Elan organized everything very well. We also hired a harpist from Elan for our rehearsal dinner the night before. Everyone was punctual, responsible and responsive. Best of all, Sound House made the wedding. Not a person of approximately 200 people, were sitting! They get the crowd up and they don't stop! Compliments of the band came in as people were dancing until 1 in the morning! We highly recommend Sound House!

Chris Styles is absolutely fantastic! He was extremely professional and competent plus he added a great personal touch and passion to all he did (and he did it well). Through his extra effort to meet with my daughter and her future husband, he was able to gain a very detailed understanding of their likes and dislikes. In addition to his great planning he was very flexible when we wanted to adjust things. He did everything that we could have hoped for and then some. A true professional in every way and contributed significantly to causing my daughter's dream wedding to come true (i.e. become a reality). I would recommend him to anyone, hands down the best I have ever worked with. Thank You!!!

The BEST DECISION I made for our wedding was hiring Jazz Boutique with Michael Cartwright. They made the wedding! They knew how to read the crowd, played the best music, looked great, and overall just set the perfect tone for the evening. All anyone could talk about the day after the wedding was the band. I even had friends that didn't attend the wedding, ask me who played, as they heard they were amazing. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

This review is more for our band, Nation, than Elan Artists (who were wonderful to work with, don't get me wrong). But this band - wow. The number one thing people comment on about our wedding is our band. They were, in a word, AMAZING - the song choices were on point, their energy was off the charts, and they were singing for almost the entire reception (even during dinner - no recorded CD tracks here). I would recommend them time and again - our dance floor was packed the entire night!

Where do I begin?! This is the BEST band you can ever dream of! We booked Rhythm Collective (led by Daniel from Elan Artists) before we booked our venue! We actually saw them at a friends wedding a few years ago and knew we would use them even before we were engaged! They had great energy, sounded awesome, and had a great song list. When we searched for bands luckily they were available for our wedding date and things were set in motion. Daniel is great at reading the crowd and we opted for non stop play which is worth the price for this group of talented musicians and singers! Not only did they learn songs and stuck to our play/don't play list, they were even gracious enough to allow my father to to play with his own band up on stage as a surprise for my husband and I. Wow so magical! We all just had a fantastic dance party. Highly recommend this group and Daniel is a pleasure to work with, give them a call because they book fast! Thank you Rhythm Collective!

If wish I could give Sound House more than 5 stars because that doesn't cut it! I couldn't possibly give a glowing enough review to do these guys justice. Will start by saying what absolutely lovely people they are. They are kind, professional, responsive, and throughout the stressful process of planning a wedding, they leave you no cause for concern. And for folks like us, to whom music is probably the most important element of the day, that's a huge deal! My husband and I are so music particular (we actually met at a music festival) that we saw Sound House three times before booking them - but we realized it wasn't because we weren't sure about how fantastic they are, it was because we had so much fun seeing them that we felt like we were at a concert, not vetting "wedding bands" - we did not want to hire anyone near that stereotype! Their performance the night of our wedding was perfection. Their song list is extensive, but we also had them learn a few songs for us, including our first dance, which they knocked out of the park - it was stunning. One of my only "regrets" of the night was not talking with everyone, but it is only because once the dance set started, I legitimately did not leave the dance floor. They were an enormous part of this wedding being an epic success. I can't tell you how many guests pulled me aside (and are still talking about) how impressive they are, and that they're the best band they'd ever heard at a wedding. Even "music snob" friends of ours were blown away. They played the ENTIRE time, which many bands will not do. We opted for chill, slower music during dinner, and then the dance party. Their talent is matched only by their incredible charisma - you can't not smile or dance when they're on. Love these guys and wish them luck, success, and as much happiness as they gave my family, friends, husband and I on our wedding day!

It is difficult to express in words how over the top happy we were with The Elements, but will do my best. Our wedding planner recommended Elan Artists as a quality company to work with for wedding bands. While we had explored and listened to a number of other bands, we attended a showcase for Elan and knew right then and there that the Elements were the band for us. Our primary focus was on amazing food and wine (we got married at Blue Hill at Stone Barns) and a phenomenal band (and achieved that with The Elements). About 2 months before our August wedding, my husband and I had a few phone conversations and email exchanges with Kerry to iron our must play, do not play, and requests for any songs not listed in their repertoire. We felt very confident going into the big day. And what a success it was – the Elements far exceeded our already high expectations. Their amazing renditions of everything from Sinatra to U2 to James Brown to Queen to Jay Z to Mackelmore kept our entire 80 person wedding on the dance floor all night! The band was so fun, so engaging, interacted with the crowd and really knew how to keep the party going. They also completely surprised us with one of the songs we requested at the very last minute. That evening, the next day and for weeks to come, my husband and I, our families and friends, could not stop talking about the band and how they made the wedding. (We want to become groupies!!!) One guest commented “I don’t know if I was at a wedding, a Michelin star dinner, or a really great concert! It was all three!!!” And that’s how we felt. Thank you to The Elements for making our day so incredibly fun and special.

I hired Elan Artists for my wedding in July. I hired a belly dancer who was nothing short of AMAZING!!! Everyone at my wedding raved about how wonderful she was. Very professional, showed up early, performed wonderfully and was very personable. Coming from a Middle Eastern background I was very picky about hiring a belly dancer, but Leyla came and put on a fantastic show!!!! Highly recommend. Also, Gretchen at Elan Artists was great to work with for booking, etc.

Ground Control was absolutely amazing!!! No one wanted the night to end because we were all having so much fun dancing! They were energetic, played a great variety, and had no problem playing specific songs we requested! We would not hesitate to spend the money and use them again!

This review is just about the Elements, the band we contracted with via Elan (our planners handled the communications with Elan, so I can't comment on that piece). The Elements were AMAZING. I was specifically looking for a band that would play both music I enjoy (what some would call eclectic and indie) and my older relatives would also like. The Elements did it all -- they had the party jumping, played songs from every genre you can think of, and learned several special request songs that were executed perfectly. All of my friends were amazed and we were dancing up until the very end. Bravo! I want to have another party just so I can hear the Elements play again.
