More Than Music Reviews: DJ Gil at Water’s Edge at Chris and Valerie’s Wedding


     Words cannot describe what an amazing job you did on Friday night.  Chris and I (along with basically every other person at our wedding) danced from the minute we walked in to the reception until the minute we left.  The music was exactly what we wanted.  You kept people up dancing all night.  Honestly, our wedding had the best music out of any wedding we’ve ever been to!  We are literally recieving texts from our friends that say “I heart DJ Gil“.  Our guests all commented on the music and how talented you are.  We can’t thank you enough for being so professional, making our wedding as much fun as it was, and playing awesome remixes.  My favorite part was the Whitney Houston remixes!  AMAZING!

More Than Music Reviews: DJ Mark at Beckwith Pointe at Melissa and Brad’s Wedding

I just wanted to let you know that DJ Mark was awesome. He was very unimposing and not one of those really obnoxious yelling DJ/MCs. Hector also went over everything with me prior to the wedding, even helping me choose some songs and it was clear that all information had been passed on to Mark. Mark was very professional, really tried to mix up the music to get everyone dancing and went over everything with us to coordinate the night. He made it a great night! Thanks again

More Than Music & Fusion Lighting, DJ Gil & Zoilo the Percussionist @ The Mark Hotel performing for Pamela & Gaal’s Wedding.

Hi Team-

Good morning!  On behalf of Arthur Backal and State of the Art Enterprises, I just wanted to thank everyone for an incredible job this weekend.  The lighting was totally fabulous – the chuppah looked great and when the lights changed color throughout the dance portion of the evening, The Mark Restaurant was converted into a dance club which was exactly what Pamela wanted .  Harlan and Heather, the musicians you sent us were absolutely perfect – Ross didn’t miss a note, Zoilo was a huge hit and DJ Gil played all of the right songs.  We would welcome the opportunity to work with you again – and hope to do so ASAP.

You all helped to give Pamela the wedding of her dreams – thanks so much!

Warm regards,

More Than Music DJ Review: DJ Morrissey @ Allegria Hotel, LI

Hi Colleen,

I wanted to thank you for your help with booking a DJ for our wedding this past Saturday.  Joe and I absolutely LOVED DJ Morrisey!?  We both remembered when we decided to go with More Than Music you said that we shouldnt wait to long because you didnt want us to lose DJ Morrisey. You were definetly right!!!! 

From the moment that he arrived he was very professional and a pleasure to work with!!!  Before the reception he went over the details to make sure that he had everything right which was great because he caught a mistake in the introductions!!!   And not only did he play all of the songs that we wanted but he did an absolutely amazing job picking out other music based on the requests that we made.  He also did a great job keeping the party going and I dont think there was a time that people werent on the dance floor! Throughout the night and even after the wedding was over our guests kept saying how awesome the DJ was!!!  My mother-in-law even said that she wanted to write a letter about how amazing DJ Morrisey was!

With music playing such a HUGE part of a wedding we wanted to be sure to tell you how happy we were with DJ Morrisey!!!  Joe even said to him at the end of the night that everything was f**king awesome and that he killed it!  We couldnt be happier with our decision to go with More Than Music and DJ Morrisey.  We will definetly recommend him to any of our friends that are getting married!

Thank you!!!!

Jen and Joe

Hi Vicki,

Hope you are having a great summer. I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you and Mark did. He was absolutely amazing and executed the entire night flawlessly.

Hi Vicki,

More Than Music Review: DJ Gil at Wedding at Swan Club

Just had to tell you that we had a great time at our wedding reception held at the Swan Club. DJ Gil had our guests rocking the whole evening. He played to the crowd that never sat down except for eating. It was a wonderful evening with someone who knew how to get a party rolling. Level of the music was perfect for the room. Sometimes the music is too overbearing for the venues. Not last night. Gil went out of his way to make sure of the pronounciation of last names, asked the bride and groom and the parents if everything was going well and if he could do anything more for us. True professional that enjoys his trade. Thanks Gil for a job so well done!!

More Than Music Reviews: DJ West at Mackenzie and Andrew’s wedding at Battery Gardens


You were soooo right. DJ West was the best dj we could have asked for–my now husband was a bit skeptical at first when we first met with you but after seeing DJ West we both were just blown away. We had the best night ever and can’t thank you guys enough.

Many thanks,



More Than Reviews: DJ West at Water’s Edge at Kim and Scott


I can’t express enough what a blast Dj West was at our wedding! He nailed it! He was exactly what we were looking for. My friends have already asked for his info!

Happy holidays!

More Than Music DJ Review: Nick and Jen’s Wedding at the Yale Club, NY

To More Than Music/Hank Lane Team,

Thank you for filling our special day with fantastic music!


You were terrific and helped us to know that our “shopping around” was over. You were so straight-forward, filled with inspiring ideas that you transformed this check-mark on our to-do list into a real joy.


In the hustle-and bustle of our celebration we lost the opportunity to catch the names of our pianist and guitarist; however, please let them know that we are grateful to them. Honestly, their sweet sound framed our ceremony–and those moments are now and will continue to be the most precious of our lives. And, truly your coordination made it possible. Thank you for your patience and professionalism.


I’m grateful that you truly put the “fire” under me to get my decisions rolling. Your assertiveness was a blessing at the right moment and your coordination and communication to Tom was surely essential.

And last but not least, Mr. Tom D’Angelo….You filled every minute of our celebration with a joyous energy. To be sure, the best high points that crowded our modest dance floor were made when you chose the next song.

To all of you, our heart-felt thanks,

Nick and Jen


More Than Music DJ Review: Janine and Brian’s wedding at Water’s Edge

We had a wonderful experience with Hank Lane-Spencer Kaufman,our event producer at Hank Lane, was incredibly patient and assured us the music provided would be the very best & would enhance our event. He paired us with DJ Tom, a good natured generous great guy. Tom played every song we asked + some he knew we’d enjoy. He made sure not to play any guest requests without having my OK first-I loved that! I would easily recommend DJ Tom and Hank Lane-they’re professional, responsible and the very best. We think they were worth every penny.

Janine and Brian

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: Kevin and Tara’s wedding at Stage 6 Steiner Studios

Hi Kim,

Hope you had a great summer. Sorry I didn’t get to catch you before we left for our honeymoon everything was so crazy. Now that we are back we wanted to thank you for the terrific job you and Ryan did. He was absolutely phenomenal! He was spot on with my guests the entire night, played a great mix of music and kept the energy high.

He was the best DJ I’ve ever heard. Please pass this thank you onto Ryan and let him know we’ll keep him in mind for future events.

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!
