Russ Bennett Band Reviews:


Awesome Experience!

Working with Hank Lane Music these past 1.5 years was awesome! They were helpful when we were choosing the band, responsive to our questions, and able to accommodate our wedding postponement due to the pandemic! All of our wedding guests said how awesome the band was the whole night! They were so lively and kept everyone engaged. They read the crowd for what songs to play. We had the Russ Bennett Band and the other bands we were considering looked awesome too! I highly recommend selecting Hank Lane Music for your next party!

Russ Bennett Band Review: "Spectacular!"


“We used Russ Bennett Band for our wedding on June 11th and it was one of the best wedding decisions we made for vendors. We went with Hank Lane after one of our friends used the company for their wedding and we loved the energy and style. After meeting with Russ we quickly saw that they would be a good match for our love for a variety of music types. It’s a pretty hands off process to set up your songs, announcements, etc. For someone like me who is extremely detail oriented, organized, and needs to be in control I was a bit nervous with the small amount of contact and easy online form method to set up your big day. But, it truly was that simple and they delivered! We are still getting compliments about our band and how spectacular they were. I would highly recommend Russ Bennett Band to anyone who asks!”

Russ Bennett Band Review: "Awesome!"


Hi Russ,

Just wanted to thank the Russ Bennett Band for the truly amazing job you did at Bari and Adam’s wedding reception! The musicians did such moving renditions of the songs during the ceremony as well!

My philosophy has always been that the band makes the party and your band certainly succeeded in making it a standout event!

My phone hasn’t stopped ringing since and every person has mentioned how awesome you guys were…in fact, many said that you were the best band they had ever seen (I agree with that)! I know how happy Bari and Adam were with how you executed their vision of the energy they wanted at their wedding…they wanted everyone up and dancing the whole night and dance the night away they did!

Thank you again!

The Review of The Russ Bennett Band: "AMAZING!!!!"


The Russ Bennet Band is AMAZING!!!! We met Russ at our first meeting at Hank Lane and were totally sold after seeing a few of his bands performances from other weddings. He seemed to know exactly what we were looking for and what our style was. We never worried leading up to our wedding day about anything with the band. Every song they played was perfect for what we wanted and they had everyone up on the dance floor all night. All of our family and friends could not get over how fantastic they were and everyone asked us if they perform anywhere that isn't a wedding so they could go and see them again! We would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a phenomenal wedding band!!

Russ Bennett Band Review on Yelp: "Phenomenal!"

Russ Bennett and his band are phenomenal and definitely know how to jam! They sound amazing and kept everyone up on the dance floor the entire time! The best was when the singers came on the dance floor and interacted with the guests. They were the life of the party and we can't thank them enough for making it such a special night!

THE BEST WEDDING EVER!! Hi Russ, Thank you so much for an amazing night! Our guests cannot stop raving about how amazing our band was. So much so that a handful of people have asked me to send them the playlist from that night. I assume you don't really keep record of all the songs that were played throughout the night, but I figured I would check with you. Also, one of our friends getting married in Maryland next July are looking for a band and they wanted to know if you travel to Maryland to perform? When I can back down to reality I will be sending another email with a glowing review and the knot, wedding wire, etc Thank you again for everything! Jaclyn
