We just got married a month ago and couldn't have asked for a better band! We saw Eric Nicolas and onelove play at a showcase back in June we loved them! We had an instant connection with Eric the band leader and he explained the whole process for us and made us very comfortable with our decision. For months we were on the phone with him asking our millions of questions. He was always so helpful and even made sure we spoke Thanksgiving weekend while he was away with family. On the wedding day we could not have been happier with our choice of band. Our guests were dancing all night and we really loved the mix of pop and of course classic rock! After and even during the wedding people kept asking for the band info and asked how we found them! The end of the night the sax player came down to the dancefloor and did the shout with all of us! It was so much fun and we can't wait to see this on our wedding video! It's a memory we will never forget! They learned about 5 new songs for us and played everything we had on our "list" Thank you Mellisa for staying on us throughout the process we enjoyed the conversations! Thanks again and can't wait to work with you guys again in the future!! Oh and make sure you have them play some Jazz and of course brazilian music they are so talented!

Elan Artists were awesome! The Classic Trio was so elegant and my guests love it for my wedding. Gretch was just great. She helped me through the process of choosing my classical songs step by step. She was extremely responsive and catered to my needs. Her assistant Andrew was responsive and great as well. They both were just on point and very professional. I really wish I would have gotten my DJ from Elan Artists as well. I am overall extremely satisfied with my experience!!! Thank you!

THE SOURCE. This band made the wedding! Eli, the point man, chatted with us multiple times over the phone and email prior to the event about the details. This took time for him to do, and isn't on his contract! Every single guest, young, old, an din between eerie dancing and coming up to us ALL night about ow ridiculous our band was! I just kept saying, I know, we booked them before we booked our church! They even changed the words to one of the songs, to words my mom wrote for us, how nice! Ellan artists weren't quite as easy to work with as Eli and The Source was. Once we booked them, they bent us a copy of the contract, which was missing an extra horn we added to the original contract. Also after booking them, it wasn't as easy to get a hold of someone as it was before we signed the contract. And, there were multiple people contacting us. I wish there had been one person assigned to our contract because with all th either vendors you are dealing with, it was hard to keep of multiple people from the same vendor. This being said, once elan artists gave us Eli, and The Sources, contact info, we were set to go because Eli and the Source was very prompt, responsive, and consistent!

The Hudson Project played at our August 2012 wedding and were far and away the best part of our wedding (as was confirmed by every single guest). We knew they were amazing when we saw them at the studio but we can't even put into words how wonderful they were on our wedding night. From oldies to the Beatles (played throughout dinner as we requested for my mom) to top 40 and rap, everything sounds like you are listening to a CD and the energy they bring to the room is incredible. Everyone commented to us how much they loved the band and our guests were dancing all night. Andrea was wonderful to work with throughout the process and remembered every single request (even playing Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary to our grandmother and parents, events we hadn't even mentioned). We wish we could be invited to another wedding they were playing just to see them perform again. Thank you, Andrea and team!

I can't say enough amazing things about Elan Artists. Our band, Eric Nicolas & One Love, went above and beyond any and all expectations we had. Every one of our guests commented on how special the band was. I think the question I heard most throughout the night was: this band is amazing, where did you find them? One of the reasons this band is set apart from typical wedding bands is that they are willing to learn any type of music to cater to the bride and groom. My husband is a huge Phish fan and they learned two different Phish songs for him. It was his dream to dance to Phish at our wedding and they made it come true. Additionally, we sent them a list of songs that we enjoy to provide insight into our music tastes and they turned that list into a setlist. Every time they began a new song we would look at each other with wide eyes and disbelief that they were playing yet another one of our favorite songs. They even obliged several requests from our guests - including a polka dance! They really made our wedding so special. The band was fun, lively, and our guests fed off their energy. Choosing Eric Nicolas was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

We had Carte Blanche play at our wedding and there are no words to describe how perfect they were! We danced all night to a mix of 1920s jazz, Latin, and French music. They are the whole package! They first of all look period which fit perfectly into our 1920s theatre venue. Secondly, they are all so talented! The band leader Kate was lovely and their lead singer has the most unbelievable voice! It was also so easy and lovely to work with Gretchen at Elan Artists. Thank you Elan Artists and Carte Blanche!!

We booked Rhythm Collective though Elan Artists for our wedding and I cannot say enough good things about them. If you are looking for a wedding band, YOU MUST BOOK THEM. We saw them in a showcase in NYC and were very impressed. We booked them almost immediately for the reception and ceremony/cocktail hour music but that showcase is only a taste of what they can do at an actual wedding. We dealt with Gretchen for the ceremony who guided me through some choices to make it unique. It was a very easy process. The band leader Daniel was terrific with planning the reception. As we approached the date, we had several phone calls about what we liked and didn't want to hear and the flow of the evening. They learned some new songs for our first dance and our father/daughter and we really felt like they were giving us what we wanted. Our last call was about a week before the wedding and I felt like he knew exactly what we wanted. The pianist and guitarist from the band that played the ceremony and cocktail hour were terrific. They set the perfect tone to both parts. Before the reception started, people were coming up to us before we were introduced telling us how great the band was. At that point they were just playing background music. Once the introductions and first dance (learned and performed beautifully) were done and the dance floor opened up, that's when they really got going. They were supposed to take a break during the salads and it didn't happen because our guests wouldn’t stop dancing. There are so many people on the dance floor that they had to move tables back. At no point did it even occur to me to “request” a song because they read the crowd perfectly and played one amazing song after another. People would not stop coming up to me and telling me how great the band was and asking where I found them. It was ridiculous. With two male and two female vocalists, they played so many different types of music: standards, hip-hop, lounge, oldies, 80's, 90's and TONS of current stuff too. I was concerned that they wouldn't be able to do any of the hot songs that came out during the summer. Couldn’t have been more wrong. They blew us and everyone there away. Rhythm Collective are great performers and I can’t rave enough about how special and fun they made our wedding.

Nation performed at our wedding party and they. were. AH.MAZ.ING. everyone LOVED them. our friends and family were dancing all night. they look good, sound amazing, are so fun and will play basically any song you want and so well--pop, jazz standards, old soul, reggae, whatever. Even though I wish they'd been less expensive they were worth every freaking penny. HIRE THEM. seriously.

The Source was awesome! Our guests are still raving about how amazing they sounded! We had an extended dance set that had the dance floor completely full for 2 hours! Plus, they knew all of the Jewish music we needed for the Hora and Mezinka. We couldn't have been happier with them!

My spouse and I got married at West Point last year. We knew it would be a difficult wedding to plan, since we decided to have a 1940's-themed wedding complete with a big band. Our plan was to hire a band that could start playing music from the 1940's, and then transition forward by decade all the way to popular hits from this year. Believe me, not many groups can do this. Weddings are complicated events, and the band leader has a critical role. Not just for delivering amazing music, but also as the master of ceremonies for the reception. I did an Internet search for wedding bands in NYC, and made a list with over 80 bands on it. I listened to sample songs and narrowed the list. I personally interviewed band leaders. From the moment I first spoke with Eric Nicolas, I knew my guests would love him. He has a fantastic personality that comes across whether he is playing music or speaking to the audience. He listened carefully as I described our vision for the reception, and then he filled in every gap that I hadn't thought of. He made incredibly helpful suggestions when I wasn't certain. We planned the entire wedding in two phone calls and a handful of emails. He worked with me on the budget and we were able to afford a 12-piece band. On the wedding day, Eric Nicolas and One Love were amazing. They setup on their own by working directly with the reception hall coordinator. We had nothing to worry about. Eric Nicolas and One Love made the extra effort and dressed in 1940's attire just for us! They looked great. My guests loved the music so much, they stormed the dance floor early, and we had to serve dinner an hour late because they weren't in their seats! If you want the most amazing wedding band in New York, and if you want your wedding to be wonderful, I strongly recommend that you hire Eric Nicolas and One Love. If you want your guests to stay on the dance floor all night, call Eric Nicolas and One Love.

I loved Nation!!! From start to finish they were wonderful. The band includes a great group of very talented musicians including 3 amazing singers who can sing anything from Frank Sinatra to Beyonce. The dance floor was packed all night and everyone kept saying how they sounded like the original singers of the songs that were sung!! Before the wedding, Josh (from Elan Artists) and Nicki (Band Leader) were very responsive and easy to work with. They made sure that everything went perfect for my wedding day music.
