Janis Nowlan Band was AMAZING!!! I know I'm biased... but my wedding seriously was the BEST and it was mostly due to the band. The energy was high all night and they seriously played non stop dance music. They even included my two new favorite songs... "Shake it off" and "All about that Bass" :) I feel like most bands couldn't pull them off but they sure did!! All of the songs I asked to be included that night were and then they just added their own wonderful suggestions to the mix. I could not be happier about my experience with them. DEFINITELY a MUST for your big day!!

Phenomenal Wedding Band!posted 10/17/2014
Janis, I don't know where to start, the band was beyond amazing! Hands down the best decision we made was choosing the Janis Nowland Band to perform at our reception. Janis was so easy to work with and had great communication with us throughout the planning process. Janis and her team are incredibly talented musicians, entertainers, and also extremely professional.They did a phenomenal job keeping the dance floor (in this case sand) packed! Thank you for creating so many great memories for Joey and I and all of our guests! All of our guests said that we had one of the best weddings they had ever been to and a big part of that is because of the fantastic music! The band never stops to take a break and can play any request. I will never forget jumping on stage with my husband to dance to Pharrell's song "Happy"! I even crowd surfed in my wedding dress! Janis and her band kept the party going! Hands down best decision was choosing the Janis Nowlan Band! If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Thank you for everything- Alissa!

Best Wedding Band!!!posted 9/11/2014
In order to have a party that no one will forget, you need an AMAZING band. This is why we hired Janis Nowlan Band!! Janis Nowlan Band made our wedding one that people will be talking about for years to come! The band's sound and energy is off the charts. We had everyone on the dance floor the WHOLE night! I could not believe that in every photo the photographer took of the dance floor, it was completely filled and you could tell by everyone's faces that they were having an amazing time. Janis, who is the leader of the band, was a pleasure to work with. She is such a nice person, is super experienced, and is intuitive about the direction you want your party to take. If you are looking for an energy-filled party with great music and great singers, don't look anywhere else! My husband and I are so grateful that we chose Janis Nowlan Band for our unforgettable wedding!!!

Amazing Bandposted 10/30/2014
Everyone still talks about my wedding and highlights the amazing Janis Nowlan Band. They play fun music, have a way of engaging everyone, and got everyone up to dance. Janis was very easy to work with. She spent hours with me on several phone conversations to plan and make sure everything would go perfectly. On my wedding day, I had no anxiety and knew everything would go smoothly. You must have this band!!!!

There are some reviews that give 5 stars to bands for showing up on time and playing recognizable music. This review is not one of those.

Janis Nowlan and her band are simply superb. She had the entire party dancing from start to finish with a great mix of old and new songs. With barely any recommendations, Janis ran the whole night by herself and even adjusted to the songs that got most people dancing. She is a wonderful person to work with and even worked with the best men to sing an introduction to the first dance - and idea that was created less than a week before the wedding.

If you hire Janis, you don't just get a great band, you get the assurance that your friends and family will remark on how great your band was for years to come.

P.S. We hire Janis for three Bar Mitzvahs 10 years ago and hired her again because she was so fantastic.

BEST WEDDING BAND EVER!posted 10/30/2014
Have you ever been to a wedding where, at the end of the night, when the lights are turned up, the guests scream the band into an encore??? This is that band, and it happened at our wedding. They are worth every penny, and we consider ourselves SO lucky that we were able to book them. Janis and band, thank you so very much for everything. You were amazing.

I've been a guest at two weddings with Janis and her band and they are AMAZING! Tons of variety, really well performed, great dancing, interacts well with the crowd while ensuring the bride and groom are the star of the show. The music and singing are top quality and fun, fun, fun. You will not regret signing this band for your event. :)

Incredible Band!posted 10/30/2014
The Janis Nowlan band played at my wedding in October 2014.

This party band is unbelievable. They had a great mix of newer and classic songs that set the tone for the entire wedding. They had everyone - young and old - on the dance floor the entire night. The compliments were overwhelming from our guests – everyone couldn’t rave enough about their energy and incredible sound.

Aside from talent, the bandleader, Janis is amazing. She is helpful, patient and goes above and beyond in terms of servicing her clients. She answered all of my (many!) questions and had really great recommendations to make our wedding special and memorable.

Her and the band are true professionals – highly, highly recommend!

The greatest band EVER!posted 10/29/2014 
When The Janis Nowlan Band played at my cousin's wedding in the spring of 2012, I knew that they were eventually going to play at my own wedding (although I wasn't even engaged at the time).

The whole process leading up to my wedding was seamless and Janis really took the time (you have her direct cell phone number and always speak with her directly) to go over every single wish and detail of the day. She sent me suggestions for some music selections and even learned a new song for my ceremony processional. ("Where Are You Going" by Dave Matthews Band...and it was incredible...just blew my mind!)

Janis played the keyboard for the ceremony and then the cocktail hour (fabulous jazz music) and the whole band joined her for the reception. They played beautiful classics, like Frank Sinatra, during dinner and then completely exploded into a 5 star party band for dancing. They have an awesome mix of classic and new hits and really know how to get a party started (and keep it going and going). They don't cop-out and let a DJ play the newer songs (like most other bands do) and most of the time, they actually sound BETTER than the originals!

I can't say enough of The Janis Nowlan Band! From beginning to end, they were a dream! Our guests STILL talk about how fantastic the band was and how amazed they were at their pure talent.

If you, or someone you know is planning a wedding, you HAVE to call The Janis Nowlan Band!!

The BEST band ever!!!posted 10/29/2014 
I have been to so many weddings recently and Janis and her band were by far the best of them all! Janis was so easy to work with and was able to accommodate all our song requests! The dance floor was so crowded people were dancing on the grass of our outdoor tent wedding! The variety of songs her band can play is remarkable and it was a great mix for both the younger and older crowd. I would recommend Janis and her band to anyone!

Janis Nowlan Band is the Best!posted 10/21/2014 
The Janis Nowlan Band was amazing! They were so professional and accommodating. It 's been over a month since my daughter and her husband were married. Guests are still raving about how fantastic the band performed. They really rocked the house. I had the time of my life. The band really helped make the wedding reception one of the best ever. It was a party the bride and groom, friends and family will never forget. The band deserves every award that can be given to a band. They can do it all!

Fabulous!posted 10/20/2014
The Janis Nowlan Orchestra has been our band of choice for 8 years! Three weddings, special birthday celebrations, and an office party have all been made more memorable because of the wonderful music offered by these great musicians. Our son was married on 10/10 and the music was fabulous! We danced all night to many music genres. Janis is the absolute best! This is the band for you!!

From start to finish, we had a wonderful experience with the Janis Nowlan Band. Janis did our ceremony music and the entire band performed at our reception. Janis was a complete delight to plan with throughout the entire process - she is very detail-oriented, which made me know that everything would run smoothly on the day of. Our guests came ready to dance and the band really got everyone moving! We are so happy that Janis Nowlan Band was our wedding band and cannot thank Janis and the band enough for helping to make our wedding the best night of our lives!

Janis and her band were absolutely fantastic. My wife and I booked Janis the day after we got engaged. The band performed at both of our sisters' weddings and she was the first phone call we made. Janis was extremely responsive and had wonderful suggestions for the event. She was willing to spend any amount of time necessary talking to us to make sure she knew what we wanted. If you get married in the area you must use the Janis Nowlan Band.

Amazing!!!posted 10/14/2014
Janis performed at my sisters wedding in 2007 and it was amazing and so much fun. The day after I got engaged I contacted Janis to be sure that whatever date we picked would work for her and her band because she makes sure it is perfect and that everyone has a blast. I will forever be grateful for Janis and her band for giving us the best day ever!

The Janis Nowlan band set the perfect mood for our wedding, from beautiful piano music during our ceremony and sentimental favorites during dinner to the crowd-pleasing music that kept our guests dancing and smiling the whole evening. What an amazing repertoire! Their superb sound, versatility and genuine warmth was everything we could have hoped for. Janis tended to every detail to assure the evening flowed seamlessly. (I would add another star if I could!)
