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!"
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 Knot.com 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 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!

Hi Danielle, We would like to thank the Russ Bennett Band for helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives. They were able to incorporate all of our family's music styles, from Top 40, to Latin, to the Grateful Dead. They kept our guests on the dance floor the entire night! Our family and friends loved the band and had only positive things to say. Thank you to Hank Lane and Russ Bennett for making the night unforgettable! Leslie & Elias
Hi Danielle, We just wanted to take an opportunity to mention how amazing the Russ Bennett Band was at our wedding on 5/29/15 at the Park Savoy in NJ. We have received endless compliments from our guests about how fantastic they were, and in fact the recurring question is "Where did you find them?!". Several of our friends have already asked for their information to book for their future weddings. We also really appreciated a last minute request for our parent's wedding song, which was a very special moment at the reception and did not go unnoticed. We just wanted to touch base with Hank Lane and acknowledge the Russ Bennett Band's outstanding professionalism and creative talents. Many thanks, Lindsey & Kris Self
"We were honored to have the Russ Bennett Band perform at our wedding. The band was such a big hit with our guests and the dance floor was packed. They looked lovely, sang superbly, and kept our guests entertained and dancing all evening! Best of all, they were absolutely perfect during our first dance which involved an abrupt song change and singing in Spanish! People say choosing a good band is one of the most important parts in a wedding, and we were thankful that we had an AMAZING band. Big thanks to the Hank Lane team!"
