DJ Allison Kinney from Hank Lane Music

DJ Allison Kinney

A Brooklyn resident hailing from Virginia, DJ Allison Kinney got her start in the music business by majoring in classical singing and hosting several local radio shows at her alma mater, James Madison University. Allison grew up with diverse musical tastes, particularly influenced by her parents' recording studio Ravensworth Studios, resulting in one of her greatest assets: knowing how to fuse multiple genres into one performance to please all audiences.

 

During her years as a one-woman DJ and emcee, she has had high- energy performances everywhere from Las Vegas to The Plaza Hotel in New York City. The wedding industry bible, The Knot, has consistently featured her at their annual gala hosted at the New York Public Library, and she is fortunate enough to be one of their recommended artists. In addition to her full-time work in the wedding and private event circuit, she has held multiple popular club residencies in NYC. She has been featured at high-profile venues such as Best Buy Theater, Brooklyn Bowl, Soho House, the W Hotel, and many more venues. Allison has also worked with NBC and the Today Show for several events, including at the X Factor premiere party. In addition to being a featured act, Allison has had the opportunity to open for several big artists, including Grammy winner Ciara, Grammy-nominee Audien, The Chainsmokers, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Armin Van Buuren, indie dance duo The Knocks, and more. Currently, she is spinning at multiple events for SiriusXM radio.

 

From weddings to fashion events to private dance parties, Allison knows how to get people on the dance floor, and recognizes DJing as an art form that can transform any event into a memorable experience. Recent non-wedding events include the Brooklyn Kindergarten Society and the Frick Collection’s annual Young Fellows Ball in partnership with Caroline Herrera.

Hey Allison!

 

Ewa and I just wanted to thank you again for making our wedding such a great time! Right from the moment we arrived at the reception, we knew we were in good hands. We are still talking about how fun it was and how we wish it never ended-- it went by so quick, and when you started to mix it up, it was just partaay time! The feet just had to move. All our family and friends loved the music selection. Ewa and I are so grateful to have met you, and we couldn't have been happier with the way things turned out. We were glad you were a part of it. Go Dukes! :)

Ewa and Eric

Hank Lane Reviews: The Rhythm Revue at The Jonathan Edwards Vineyard at Allison and Erik's Wedding

Justin, I wanted to let you know that the band was outstanding. Everyone commented that it was the best sound they have ever heard at a reception. The voices were superb. Every instrument sounded great but a lot of comments about the sax. I am so glad we decided to add him. Thanks for all your help and please feel free to use me as a very satisfied reference for the group and for the professionalism of the Hank Lane organization. I appreciate everything you did. Best regards, Joe

Hank Lane Reviews: Ernest Mills Band at Chelsea Piers at Dwayne and Allison's Wedding

Hi, Dwayne and I wanted to send you a note to genuinely thank you for everything you did to make our wedding, on 4/13/12 at The Lighthouse, amazing. We appreciated your time, and patience throughout the planning process. The organization and attention that your company gave us, really allowed us to relax and know we were in good hands. We felt like you listened to the vibe and scheme that we envisioned and that you worked hard to make it come to life. The band was prompt, and seamlessly set up while we took photos and prepped before the wedding. The guitarist and violinist did a fantastic job playing beautiful music to welcome our guests. We were truly blown away by the energy of the band and their engagement with the audience. They took time to feel out our guests and played to them. It seemed like they created this mutual relationship where the crowd fed off of them and the band fed off the crowd. They danced and performed but did not make themselves the center of attention- they just set up the energy for everyone to dance the night away. Having so many talented vocalists really made a huge range in genres of music, and they covered the songs so well. Each vocalist had a unique and beautiful voice that sounded so authentic to the original singers. The band really seemed to enjoy each other and us, which kept the energy positive. The experience felt very personal to us, due to the effort of Ernest Mills. First, we were happy to hear many of the requested songs be played through out the night. Additionally, the lead band member came over to us several times to check on us. We thought this was a very considerate touch, it made us feel like they were really focused on our happiness and not just on their own agenda. Finally, the band made several announcements about how amazing the wedding was, how beautiful the crowd was and how happy they were to see everyone blending together and enjoy their time. Thank you so much for all that you did, Ernest Mills was fantastic. Allison and Dwayne

Hank Lane Reviews: Ernest Mills Band at Chelsea Piers at Allison and Dwayne's Wedding

Dear Hank Lane Productions, I am writing to express our complete and ultimate satisfaction of the Ernest Mills Band that played at our daughter's wedding on April 13th at the Lighthouse! Beginning with the absolutely gorgeous and romantic pre-ceremony, then the ceremony and cocktail hour, the violinist and guitarist were exquisite. And when the full band started playing as the bride and groom were announced - the room started rocking! They didn't seem to take a break all night long! Their range of musical selections complimented the ages and dance preferences of all our guests - from the newlywed's first dance, right up to the last song of the night - the dance floor was filled with happy feet! Thank you SO much for providing a very important piece of the total process of our daughter's beautiful wedding and extraordinary reception. I was in the hotel elevator on Saturday and both my friends AND our daughter's friends were excited about how great the band was! Sp that tells me it was awesome! Everyone's feet were sore! Thanks again for an enjoyable and very high-energy and entertaining band. Very sincerely, Bill & Lorraine
