Frank Simmons Band
The Frank Simmons Band delivers more than your average band. These musicians know what’s hot, and “bring the party to the party” with high-energy sets designed to keep people dancing. With five talented singers, a rhythm and full horn section, they tackle diverse styles with ease – flowing from Arianna Grande, to The Rolling Stones, to Phish without missing a beat! Members have shared the stage and performed along-side performers including Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Gwen Stefani, Pink!. They have also appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Their enormous repertoire is suitable for all occasions. This proud Jersey band has toured around the world including performances for the NFL, the World Cup and at the metro area’s top hotels & catering facilities.
Hope all is well and you both have had an enjoyable holiday season.
Conor and I are just getting settled back after our honeymoon and we wanted to drop you a note to thank you both for everything. The music was beyond perfect!! Frank Simmons and his band did an absolutely fantastic job. The range of music played was incredible from Bruce Springsteen, Van Morrison, and Motown artists, to Maroon Five, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj, and other top 40 artists. The band had an amazing ability of keeping the energy level high throughout the entire night which in turn kept everyone on the dance floor (literally no one wanted to leave the dance floor)– which is exactly what we wanted. Just about every guest has complemented the band and many have deemed them the “best wedding band ever” (and we would agree).
Good morning, Ian.
And thank you for a fantastic event – folks are raving about the band and from what I hear, they were chanting “one more song!” at the end of the night. Nobody wanted it to end. Hopefully we can all work together again on future events.
Thanks for everything and have a great weekend!
Hi there, dear Ian –
It’s been almost a month since Katie and Anthony’s wedding . . . but not a day goes by that I don’t relive the awesomeness of it! I can’t thank you enough for everything you did to ensure that the entertainment was as over-the-top fabulous as it always is when I work with you and Hank Lane.
Putting together an Overlook Foundation event is one thing; coordinating something as personal as my daughter’s wedding is altogether different. You are the ultimate professional, so I had no doubt that every detail would be handled to perfection . . . and that the Frank Simmons Band would be every bit as extraordinary as you promised. From the moment they met you, Katie and Anthony were totally impressed with your knowledge of virtually every kind of music there is, as well as what works and what doesn’t work with a collection of 170 friends and family that spans several generations.
Frank and his group were amazing, so talented, upbeat and fun! Of course our guests loved it when the vocalists came onto the dance floor and encouraged everyone to join in. They were also great at reading the crowd, raising or lowering the intensity of the music to enhance the mood at that moment.
Katie calls it the wedding of her dreams, and even Anthony, a man of few words, has said that he knew it would be great but he had no idea just how great. I am so grateful to you, Frank and his band, and the Hank Lane team for helping us give our bride and groom the most wonderful day of their lives, one we will all remember forever!
I want to take a minute and thank Hank Lane and the Frank Simmons Band for a truly spectacular job at our reception. Our wedding was back in April and people are still talking about how amazing the band was! The whole process was truly effortless from day one. My husband was extremely particular about how the music would carry the night and it was more than we could have ever asked for. From the lead singer of the band jumping in with our crazy family and friends on "Shout" to the DJ the rocked the end of the party everything was so perfect! Thank you for helping us choose music that fit us perfectly and thank you to the oh so talented Frank Simmons Band! They were truly amazing!!!

I CANNOT tell you how much we LOVED your band and you and everything!!!! There really are no words to describe the amazingness that is the Frank Simmons Band. You really went ABOVE AND BEYOND our expectations and you made that party! Every single person at the brunch the next morning was talking about how incredible you guys were and I think you are going to get a few jobs out of this wedding! We will recommend you to EVERYONE we know that is getting married. We really cannot thank you enough for your awesomeness!
If you guys are ever in the city let us know! We would love to grab a drink with you!

I want to once again thank you for helping us with the band. Everyone we dealt with at Hank Lane was professional and a pleasure to work with. The Frank Simmons Band was unbelievable. I can't tell you how many people commented on how great they were! I know Faryn and Ryan will post on Wedding Wire, etc. when they return from their honeymoon but I wanted to reach out and just let you know how great they were. The dance floor was packed the entire time!
I hope you, Lauren and the girls have an amazing summer!
Hello Frank and Team:
I hope that all is well and that you're having a great week. Tressie and I just got back from our amazing two week honeymoon in Italy (Rome, Florence, Lake Como and Milan). We had quite the vacation and are now excited to start this next chapter in our lives, as husband and wife.
Now that I am back, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for everything. Our entire experience in working with the Frank Simmons Band and Hank Lane Music as a company: from our initial meeting with Spencer where he was quick to work on a solution within our budget; to the communication process as we coordinated the logistics heading into the wedding; to our initial meeting with Frank and all our back and forth communications with him; etc. was a truly wonderful experience.
Frank Simmons in particular, I want to give extra praise to Frank whose passion and energy was contagious and he truly made us feel like we were the most important wedding he was ever going to do. He and Tressie had a bunch of back and forth emails on creative ideas and they worked extremely well together. From the 1st time we met Frank we knew we had made the right decision and we both took a big deep breathe knowing that the band was second to none. Frank and his team's performance on our wedding night did not disappoint! I cannot count the number of people who said some version of: "Amazing wedding, who was that band!?", "Best band I have ever heard at a wedding", "The energy of your wedding was unbelievable; that band was great", "You have to send me the name of that band", and so on and so forth. The Frank Simmons Band really brought their A+ game to our wedding and I greatly appreciate it. As a company, Hank Lane Music did everything you said you would do and really went above and beyond for us. A true first rate experience!
We could not have had a better experience working with a band and we are so grateful that we found you. I'm here as a satisfied customer who wants to help out a great customer service business.
Thank you again.
THANK YOU SO MUCH :)
Everything musical was great. You were great in oversight and planning. The Frank Simmons Band was terrific -- the players were great, the singers were great.
Numerous "best band ever" comments from guests. I hope to be back to you again, and will recommend to others always.
You added a lot to our event, all wonderful.
To the wonderful Hank Lane Team, (Frank Simmons Band)
Thank you so much for making our wedding rock and keeping our guests on their feet the entire evening. You were so helpful, took all of our personal requests including letting me sing with you. Thank you for the music and the memories.
All our love,
Samantha and Josh Moshen
Ian - where can we even begin?? The music was beyond PERFECT!! Everyone was saying it was the best band they've ever heard (and I've already passed on a bunch of referrals!) Frank Simmons Band blew our wedding way out of the water and made our night simply magical!! I can't say enough - all Mike and I are talking about is how amazing the music was - you are the man!!
It was an absolute pleasure working with you over the last year and, while 'thank you' hardly does how we're feeling justice - from the bottom of our hearts (and still tapping 'dancing feet') a HUGE thank you to you and Frank!
We loved working with Frank Simmons' Band and DJ West through Hank Lane and everyone is still talking about how great the music was at our wedding! We wanted to include a lot of different styles between parents, grandparents, and college friends. Frank Simmons offered great suggestions to keep everyone happy and keep the crowd dancing all night!
