Zoe’s Bat Mitzvah at The Eventi Hotel NYC

Dear Jared,


DJ Ryan was AMAZING!!!

It all went really well.

So our event was an A+ and I would DEFINITELY recommend More than Music and Heat to anyone who was having a Bar/Bat mitzvah. He was fun and really made our event special and magical.

Hello Colleen/Gil

I hope you are well. We just wanted to give you some feedback from last night and in a word “AMAZING” is the only thing i can think of.  I am sure you hear this all the time about Kevin but yes, he delivered and made the party everything we could have dreamed of.

Your team was professional and a true pleasure to work with and really made the party what we hoped it would be.  THANK  YOU is the only thing we can say.

Hi Colleen and Kevin,

I am still floating on air thinking about what an amazing time we had!  Sorry for not conveying that sooner.  You did an amazing job and we are truly grateful for making the day so memorable.  

We have our daughter’s bat mitzvah in 2016….we’ll be in touch!

Best wishes,


MC Kevin and DJ Ryan at Temple Beth Torah


Hi Colleen

We just want to thank you.

It was a great night and all the More Than Music aspects of it were just what we had hoped. Kevin was great (of course) and the dancers and the DJ and the lights, stage, and screens were terrific. There was so much energy in the room and your people carried it through and magnified it the whole night. We can’t even count how many people came up to us to comment on how much they loved the music and the whole production.

The band at the cocktail hour was amazing!! As you know, nobody has seen something quite like this there and we’d kept it a surprise so it was a huge hit.

Thanks again for everything.

More Than Music Reviews: MTM DJ, Lighting, Dance Team, and Zap Shot at Rachel’s Bat Mitzvah

Hi Colleen,

Now I can say–you are SO right. I get it. KEVIN AND HIS TEAM ROCKS!!!! I had the A team across the board–DJ, Lighting, Zap Shot Woman, Dance Team and all. Jessica was amazing–so cool, a real sweet heart, so genuine, beautiful and great with kids. Kristina–the men were all oohing and ahhing over her–very sweet and sexy. Chinnemae–my favorite–great with the kids and my friends; Larris-also very kind and great dancer. Ryan–the nicest and talented DJ. The dance floor and set up looked beautiful. Everyone was motivated to dance and learn the moves–the energy was high from the start to midnight with many still left on the floor wanting more.

It was evident that Kevin was the man of the hour–professional, cool, focused on Rachel and the family and knew what it took to sustain the high engagement and energy throughout the evening. He became a friend to us all–we want to keep in touch with him. For we all adore him!

Rachel’s bat mitzvah was sensational. A night to remember. Many thanks to Kevin and the entire team for making Rachel’s bat mitzvah extraordinary. Please send him our best! We miss them all already.

The accolades keep pouring in and I hope we find Kevin back in CT real soon (I now need an excuse to have another party–Rachel’s sweet 16 in 3 years, my 50th in 4 years, who knows?).

Thank you for helping me make this one of the most memorable nights in my life and Rachel’s most memorable night!


P.S. Please let me know how I get a copy of the Zap shots. Look forward to the lasting memories.

More Than Music Reviews: Corporate Event at Capitale

Hi, Heather/Vicki!

Ryan did a great job at our event on Saturday evening at Capitale, and I wanted to thank the both of you for making this happen for us.

Hopefully, we will work together again in the future.

Thanks, again…

More Than Music Reviews: Lauren and Jason

Hi Kim,

We are sitting in the airport waiting to board our flight for our honeymoon and we cannot stop smiling as we recap last night. Our wedding was AMAZING!!!!!!! And we have you and DJ Ryan to thank for that. All of our friends and family kept coming up to us on the dance floor to tell us we have the best DJ they have ever seen at a wedding. It was non-stop partying! Even our grandparents were dancing which is no small task when they are listening to anything other than Frank Sinatra and I know you’ll remember how concerned we were about having something for everyone. We are so thankful that we listened to your advice and apologize for any hassles we gave you during our initial meetings. You certainly hit the nail on the head with your recommendation and please let Ryan know that he was nothing short of flawless.

We are forever thankful to you and him for making our wedding the best night ever!

Talk to you soon and thanks again!

Lauren and Jason


More Than Music Reviews: DJ Ryan at Angel Orensanz at Silvia and Grant’s wedding

Dear Harlan:

Thank you SO much for all of your help in selecting DJ Ryan for our wedding. He was everything you said he would be and more! Exceptional at choosing the right music to play and above and beyond professional, he had every single one of our guests partying the entire night! We were floored and could not have asked for a better DJ or a better experience overall with our music.

Thank you for making our wedding celebration one of the best memories of our lives. We hope to work with you again.

Many thanks,

Silvia and Grant


More Than Music DJ Review: Michael and Joanna’s wedding at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers

Dear Ryan,

Thank you so much for everything. The music at our wedding was awesome everyone is still raving about it. Michael and I danced the entire night. I don’t think I missed one song; I have the marks on my feet to prove it :).

Since the wedding I’ve recommended you and More Than Music to anyone I know that’s getting married.

I hope to see you again at another wedding! You really made it the most memorable night for both of us.

Thanks again,

Michael and Joanna

More Than Music DJ Review: Eileen and Niall’s wedding at Studio 450


Sorry I didn’t do this sooner but I just wanted to drop you a quick email and thank you for your help with the wedding music selection.

Everything was perfect from beginning to end and I don’t think anyone didn’t dance…god only knows I was up the whole time :).

Please know that I will highly recommend Hank Lane Music to anyone who asks and please pass the word onto the DJ( It was Ryan and I don’t have his email) that we couldn’t have asked for more and thank him for making the music selection perfect!

More Than Music Reviews: Margie, Mother of Caleb

Dear Kim –


I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for helping to make Caleb’s Bar Mitzvah such a beautiful event for us last Saturday.  The jazz trio was fabulous and was exactly what we wanted for this party — my kids really enjoyed playing with them — what a wonderful memory! Ryan the DJ was perfect helping to move the party along and playing the perfect mix of music and let’s not forget the foosball table and photo booth!  Those were the only things Caleb really requested for his party but I know for a fact that all of  adults enjoyed them as well.  In addition, Michael and I would like to thank you and your staff for all of your guidance/phone calls/emails right up until the big day to help us navigate the whole process – I would recommend you to anyone!!

I am truly grateful and will surely be in touch for the next big event!!

All the best,


More Than Music Reviews: Spencer’s Bar Mitzvah at Temple Beth Torah

Dear Colleen and Heather,

Words cannot express our gratitude for all you’ve done for us over the past few weeks. The party was amazing. We had such a great time. The entertainers, their costuming, and their personalities helped make the event so special for us. The show was great!!!! Mike was awesome!!!! He is a great guy with a great personality. He kept everyone on the floor dancing all night. Dave Ramos and our tech Keith were such professionals, aside from their warm and caring personalities, I cannot wait to recommend all of you to anyone I can. Thank you again, you will always be so special to us.

Jeff and Robin
