Band leader Kenny Ford leader of the Kenny Ford Band at Hank Lane Music

Kenny Ford Band

Kenny Ford has been leading his own Kenny Ford Band for the past 15 years receiving client accolades all along the way. Kenny’s approach is that he treats each party as if he were playing for a close personal friend. The results speak for themselves. Today, the Kenny Ford Band is one of the busiest on the Hank Lane Music roster playing a wide of musical styles and his signature crowd pleasing dance floor sing-a-long classics from Queen to Blink 182.

 

The youngest of four children from Long Island, New York, Kenny Ford was born into a musical family. By the age of three, Kenny was already sitting at the piano figuring out melodies by ear of songs he had heard around the house. People have asked his parents and siblings if they forced him to practice piano, as is the case with many other young children. "Actually," recalls his sister Joy, "We had to drag him away! He'd be down there at 6:00 AM banging away and waking up the whole house!" It became apparent that music was his destiny. Kenny furthered his studies in music attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, where he completed his Bachelor of Music.

Kenny Ford Band Review from the Parents of the Bride: "Sensational!"

 

Stephanie,

 

Please forgive the delay in writing you, as I was catapulted back to work! I did not want too much time to go by before telling you and the Kenny Ford Band how absolutely thrilled we were with the music they provided, NON-STOP, throughout our daughter’s wedding (Michelle and Adam) at Temple Emanuel in Closter, NJ. Guests are still talking about the band. It was truly sensational and well beyond our expectations! We have quite a few friends who are musicians and they gave the band the highest kudos. People danced through the breaks, people danced to the bitter end. The Kenny Ford Band is to be credited with playing a major role in making this a most memorable wedding. Thank you! Thank you!

 

Kindest Regards,

 

Nina and Eric, parents of the bride

 


Kenny Ford Band Review: "ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!"

 

Hello Kim and Danielle,

 

Marisa and I just wanted to quickly thank you two (and Hank Lane, in general) for everything. You two, specifically, were super professional, always available, and enjoyable to work with – we couldn’t have asked for more.

Please send our thanks (again) to the Kenny Ford Band. They were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Everyone is still talking about them and telling us how well they were (as if we didn’t know). A lot of people, independently of each other, actually told us that they thought we had a DJ because of how on-point they were with every single note, across all genres of songs. Although we had very high expectations going into it, they managed to somehow shatter them. We really don’t have any words to say about them, except they were the best we have ever heard. Without question.

Finally, to the Hank Lane Company, in general, we also want to say thanks. If you two and the Kenny Ford Band are representative of the organization as a whole, it surely must be the best in the area. We visited with several different music groups/companies and never once did we second guess our decision to work with you…even till now, after the wedding. We have been and will continue to tell all of our friends and family (most of whom have been asking us anyway) to choose Hank Lane.

Thank you again for making our evening so special and AWESOME.

 

Best,

 

Chris & Marisa Baldwin

Kenny Ford Band Review: "Knocked it out of the park...crushed it!!!"

 

Hi Ian, 

 

I will send a formal thank you once we order our cards but we just wanted to thank you and let you know that Kenny Ford absolutely knocked it out of the park, seriously crushed it!!! They were so beyond fabulous and everybody keeps talking about the band and how amazing all the music was. They played all the songs we wanted, plus more, and the singers who joined on the dance floor and interacted with everyone made it even better. The dance floor was packed all night, everyone was singing along and going nuts!!! I can’t stop talking about how perfect it all was. Thank you again for making our wedding day the best!!!! 

 

Best,

Kenny Ford Band Review for a Birthday Party: "Incredible!"

I just wanted to give you some feedback on the band last night not only was there music incredible but their personalities to match! Every single person at the party agreed they were by far the greatest band they have ever heard. I am so incredibly pleased with them and I truly appreciate it! We will be using them over and over again in our family. There are 13 grandchildren that have some big parties when they are 13 that we will be using them for! Thank you so much.

Hank Lane Music: Kenny Ford Band Review

Hi I just had to write to tell you, every guest at my daughter's wedding let me know that this was by far the best wedding band they had ever heard. This party was so high energy, the song choices had young and old on the dance floor the entire evening, singing out loud from start to finish. When I got married in 1982 I also used hank lane. Then a few years ago my daughter's new in laws Justin and Maxine Korval used Kenny Ford and they were fantastic then so they were selected again. We feel so blessed that after all is said and done, with much money spent and many months of planning, the band made the party over the top. They were sensational and made my daughter's dreams for her special night come true. A million thank yous for helping us have a great night, playing the songs we requested, and making the party more fun than we could have ever imagined with your talented musicians.

Hi Everyone, Matt and I wanted to let you know that we could not have been happier with Kenny Ford and his band at our wedding last weekend. We have had so many people tell us that the music was incredible - and it was! They sounded great, people never stopped dancing, and we loved all of their song choices. We would be more than happy to give them a positive recommendation if any future clients are looking for one. Have a great rest of the weekend- and thank you again for being so helpful throughout the whole planning process. - Stef and Matt

Hi Stephanie, I just wanted to write and let you know what an amazing job the Kenny Ford Band did at my wedding on October 3rd. They sounded amazing and had all of my guests dancing all night long. My family and friends are still taking about them and how great they were. I told them after my wedding how thankful I was for them and how great they were, but could you please tell them again? I'm so glad I used your company...you never disappoint. There are two more Prato girls that will get married in the future. I'm sure they will be headed your way when that time comes. Thank you again, Meredith
