What Did You Pay for a Hank Lane Band?

I really want a Hank Lane band. Everytime I go to an event and one of their bands is playing I have so fun. That being said, Hank Lane won't call me back, which probably isn't a great sign.  Does anyone know the average price of one of those bands? I've heard they can get up to 12K for a larger band. What about one of their smaller ones?

    In planning for my upcoming wedding, I have dealt very closely with Harlan Ellis at Hank Lane Music and the entire staff there has been nothing less than exceptional. I hope that you will be able to use one of their amazing bands at your wedding! Perhaps you have the wrong number? I've been using (212) 767-0660.

     

    Best of luck and congratulations!

    A few of my friends have used Hank Lane bands.  I thought they were OK, but not exceptional.  Not a good sign that they are not calling you back--you shouldn't have to chase down your vendors!  Frown 

    We ended up booking an amazing NYC based band that we saw at a wedding in Aspen, Colorado. 

    I'd be happy to give you more info via PM if you are still looking.

    Good luck to you!

    We used hank lane and ended up paying about $6800 for a 7 piece band--the Michael Hart Band, who I would recommend x 10000. They were amazing!! love love love them. They're expensive but SO SO worth it.

    We were able to get in touch with harlan and have a meeting. I just wanted to get an idea of prices before I went in for the appointment. I heard their bands can get up to 12k which is totally out of our price range.

    We booked a 7 piece band for a Friday night in June - paying $7K. They helped us stick to our budget by cutting down the # of band members...and the Friday night worked in our favor as well. I've been to a lot of weddings with their bands and they never disappoint!
  • Hi - I was just looking at your message re: your band. I feel like I'm being quoted higher prices for less pieces. Did you like your band?

  • i am having rhythm nights at my wedding on a Saturday in October.  We are paying 6k for a 6 person band
