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!!!

Janis Nowlan Band is a band that goes the extra mile. As the bride, I never once hesitated that the band would be a problem. Janis is so personal and remembers every detail! Hands down I would recommend this band to anyone who is looking for great music, dancing, and an enjoyable time!

My husband and I saw the Janis Nowlan Band play at a friends wedding a few weeks after we got engaged. We hadn’t started planning yet, but he said, “I don’t care what else you plan, but we have to have this band!” We very soon after hired the band to play at our reception and a jazz trio to play at cocktail hour. Throughout the entire year of planning, Janis was so easy to work with. She responded to my many emails about how things worked, offered advice, and went above and beyond with accommodating us to make our day perfect. Janis learned three new songs for us to make our day absolutely perfect! She even calmed my fears about doing a choreographed dance with a live band having never heard the song performed by them. Everything went perfectly and our guests (many of them musicians themselves) all were raving about the band! The dance floor never cleared or thinned out. People were dancing all night long! Janis even allowed us to have a special guest performer use her keyboard, which was amazingly generous! We can’t say enough great things about this group. If you want a full dance floor all night, this is the band to pick!!!!

I live in Seattle and hadn’t heard or met Janis until our wedding, but she was perfect! My parents INSISTED on having a band (they are old school) and I didn’t really care either way, but I’m glad we did it! We had so fun and people I thought wouldn’t be dancing were! She honored every special request we had, including “Luckiest” for our wedding song, playing the Monday Night Football theme song for all of our intros (best idea EVER, thanks hubby), and allowed us to bring in a CD for our first dance per our request.I’ll leave the rest of my review to the compliments I recieved after the wedding:
1. “It sounded so real, I thought it a live recording”
2. “Every time I looked up, I was thinking ‘this is too good, it can’t be the band’. I was shocked everytime that it was them singing!”
3. One husband about his wife, “Oh my god, my wife is dancing like a 20 year old. I don’t even know who she is anymore! This is great!”In general, we recieved the most compliments about the food (important to me) and the band. I was on the dance floor the entire night! I barely had a voice for my honeymoon!

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.

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.

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!!

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!

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!!

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.

We had the privilege of being introduced to Janis Nowlan and her band a few years back at my brother’s wedding, so our decision of who to use from a guest’s point of view was an easy one. And now, after having had the experience of working with Janis, one-on-one for our own daughter’s wedding, we can honestly say that we could not have been any more pleased on all fronts, and our guests said the same thing!!! With Janis, you’ll receive the utmost in dedication, experience, professionalism, and attention to detail in the planning of your event. We simply cannot wait until we have the next opportunity to work with her and her crew again. Thank you, Janis!!!

I may be biased but I think the Janis Nowlan band is by far the best wedding band I have ever seen. Guests were on the dance floor all night and raved about how much energy the band brought to the party. They were so good that band members from another renowned band playing at a different wedding stopped by to hear them play!
I highly recommend Janis Nowlan to anyone who wants a classy but FUN wedding reception. In fact, one of my bridesmaids has already booked them for her wedding!
Thank you for making the night such a huge success Janis & crew!

You have the BEsT Band in THE WoRLD!! (If you didnt know that already.)Thank you thank you thank you for EVERYtHING you did for us on July 4th to make that night the best night of our lives! Seeing our kids (Carina and Rob) so happy was the thrill of a lifetime.

One last favor to ask of you….If you are able and willing, could you forward to me the setlist from that night? Even an approximation would be great.

The reason is that I would love to put together a soundtrack of that night. It would be just for our purposes. Our memories are already starting to fade on what songs were played that magical night, and the music was really the glue that held it all together for us.

We couldn’t have been happier with every single aspect of Rob and Carina’s wedding. Her processional that you played brought me to tears….it was so perfect. Perfect – all the way through to the last note of God Bless America! Such a sweet ending.

I swear Janis, I will have the Janis Nowlan Band play at every one of my kids weddings if its the last thing I do as a Mom. You are so special.

All the best,

The Janis Nowlan Band is the most AMAZING wedding band there is! My husband and I went to one of their showcases and after only a couple of songs, we knew this was the band we needed to have at our wedding! Their energy is high and you can tell immediately how passionate they are about what they do! AND they can perform ANY type of music! Our guests did not leave the dance floor the entire night, and neither did I! :) Our family and friends are still raving about how amazing our band was! Friends thought that John Legend was actually there performing our wedding song, that’s how perfect the Janis Nowlan Band sounds! Janis and her team are such a pleasure to work with. They are so accommodating with any and all requests and they truly treat you like family. If you’re looking for a band for your upcoming event, you should look no further! :)

I have had the privilege of attending two events (a gala event for our hospital and another wedding) where Janis’s band played. Without hesitation, the 1st vendor we booked for our own wedding this past May 10th was Janis’s band. The band truly made our reception rock! The band’s ability to cater to all age groups meant our dance floor was used all night… not an easy feat given the guests ranged from 10 to 74+. I cannot say enough how happy we were to dance with family and friends while hearing the band’s endless talent with their horns, drums, bongos, guitars and piano .. .not to mention the soulful sounds their singers brought to every song. Janis herself is the epitome of a consummate professional. She was awesome in helping us finalize our song list but equally adept at changing on the fly (much to our appreciation) as she saw what the guests were responding to the most. Personally, while I dealt with a last minute change (my father wasn’t healthy enough to attend the wedding), Janis’s compassion in handling that situation, especially as it related to the father/daughter dance was extremely appreciated. To this day, we continue to receive rave reviews from our guests regarding how awesome the band was and how much they enjoyed themselves more than any other wedding they had been to. I would never hesitate to recommend Janis and her band to anyone. My only hope is I can find another event in our own family’s future to hire her again.

I really couldn’t imagine a better band. SIMPLY AMAZING!!! Janis was wonderful to work with throughout this whole process. So professional. So fun! Loved it, loved it, loved it. Janis Nowlan and her bandmates are great performers. They were great and it must be fulfilling for them to bring so much joy to people!!! On a special note, they let my sisters join them to perform our first dance! It really meant so much to them and to me. Also, a word of advice— Janis knows her stuff. We had no real play lists. Just let her take the lead and you’ll be happy.—- Kiera and Paul McElrone

For someone who said the number one thing that he was looking forward to at the wedding reception was the band, the fact that the Janis Nowlan Band met and exceeded my expectations says big things about them. The band not only learned our wedding song, but they rocked it. They hit every song we threw at them, keeping the energy of the night at the right level every time. As a music critic, I couldn’t have been more happy, with every instrument coming across clean. My mom and I did “Moon River” for our song and it will be something we will have to cherish forever.

If you haven’t seen Janis Nowlan Band, you are missing out!!posted 12/27/2013 (modified 12/28/2013)

Janis Nowlan Band MADE our wedding. 14 years ago they played for my sister’s wedding and 14 years later people are still talking about it. That was the band my now husband and I wanted, and now our guests are and will be talking about Janis’s band for years to come! They were the first band we went to listen to and they were the last band we came back to. By far THE best wedding band you could ever have!My husband and I are deeply vested into music and we wanted a band that would knock the socks off of our family and friends. Janis Nowlan came with 200% energy, and ended the party with the same! They are extremely talented musicians and vocalists and played non-stop, keeping the dance floor alive and packed the entire night. They learned our wedding song that 99% of our guests did not know, an ‘indie’ song, and nailed it spot-on. Several of our friends came up to us noting how beautifully played it was!!

We could not have asked for a better, more energetic, more talented, and awesome band to play for our wedding day! If you haven’t checked them out, you are missing out. Thank you Janis Nowlan Band for everything you did to make our day THE BEST EVER!!!

The BEST BAND/ORCHESTRA IN THE USA!posted 12/3/2013 (modified 12/4/2013)

In my opinion and that of our 210 guests, this is best band that they or we have ever heard. This was our SECOND TIME using Janis and her 12 member band. Yes, 12. The first time was in March 1999 for our eldest daughter, and ever since that wedding, our guests have said that they still have never heard a more talented group of musicians and vocalists than Janis’s in 1999. Therefore for our second daughter’s wedding in Nov 2013, there was no doubt that we wanted to have her play again! Our guests were thrilled to be treated to a second “concert” by the Janis Nowlan Orchestra! YES, they wowed everyone, and there was not one moment without her magical mixture of music from beginning to end!
Her forte is her extensive repertoire of songs! Janis is a true professional, courteous, and well-organized. She is flexible and listens closely to what your desires are! She is a wonderful emcee as well.
She cares sincerely about every bride and groom and the wedding guests. This isn’t just a “gig” for her. She loves what she does, and her joy and excitement as well as that of the band is ever present!! She is a lovely, lovely person. She sings herself and plays the piano.
Her band members are so talented! Janis utilizes well the strengths of the horn sections, the amazing drummer, and her 3 incredible vocalists. The choreography is spectacular! You would think
you were at a concert! Our guests enjoyed a full night of dancing!
I have already told Janis that when our last child gets married, she has to return again!!

Fantastic!!posted 11/7/2013 (modified 11/8/2013)

I cannot say enough great things about Janis Nowlan Band. They were absolutely fantastic! The music was such a hit at our wedding. Every time someone commented on how much fun they had at our wedding, they mentioned how great the band was.This band can play practically anything. We liked a mix of new and old music. They were able to go back and forth between both with no problem at all. I provided a lot of suggestions of what kind of music my family like, and they created a set list that had everyone dancing all night long. I didn’t even need to provide that many selections. I just told Janis a few of my favorites and she knew exactly the kind of party we expected.

Also, they don’t sound like an ordinary wedding band. They’re voices are great and the musicians are awesome. The sound that was coming out of them was unbelievable. I was impressed with some of the more current dance music they were even able to pull off.

When picking out our special songs, Janis was a big help. I didn’t have anything picked out besides our first dance and she was great at providing suggestions for introductions, parent dances, cake cutting, everything. It saved me a lot of time and her suggestions were perfect.

Everyone was non-stop dancing from the moment the party started until the party ended. I would love to relive the whole thing so I could dance and listen to the music again.

Janis Nowlan Band was one of the highlights of our wedding. All I cared about was good food and great music. Well they definitely fulfilled the great music criteria. They are pricey, like most bands, but totally worth the splurge. If you splurge on anything, get this band! They are totally worth it!!

She went over everything with our planner to make sure they were on top of everything and the timing would work out. The jazz trio at cocktail hour was perfect and exactly what were hoping for. The band for the rest of the night was wonderful!!! They got every person at our wedding on the dance floor for the entire night! they kept that party going for hours and were amazing! Everyone loved them and we couldn’t have been happier!!!

Best Dance Party!!!!!!!posted 9/27/2013

I wanted to save money and hire a DJ, but my husband was adamant about hiring a band…I am so glad I listened to him! The Janis Nowland Band was incredible!!!!!!!!! They have this unbelievable power to get everyone on the dance floor. Friends that I have never seen dance before were strutting their stuff all night long!!! We sent Janis a list of songs that we liked, and she put them into the perfect order to dance to at the reception. They have an extensive list of songs that they play on their website, but Janis assured us that if there was a song we wanted that was not on their list, the band will take the time to learn it…I thought that was the greatest thing!!!!! The entire band was a pleasure to work with!

“Janis, I don’t know where to start, the band was beyond amazing! Hands down the best decision we made was choosing the Janis Nowlan 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!” Wedding: 09/20/2014

Janis Nowlan Band By Len La Penna’s Envisioned Video New Jersey Wedding At Greate Bay Country Club

 “There was not a space open on the dance floor. Janis Nowlan Band delivered a top-notch dance party experience at my wedding this past June. My guests are still talking about how fantastic the band was. Janis was great to work with and kept in touch in the months leading up to my wedding to make sure all of my requests were met and questions were answered. Janis and her band were very accommodating and even put together a specially requested mash-up of a song for the Mother of the Groom/Groom dance. The band paid attention to the vibe from the crowd and played non-stop the whole night keeping the party going. Having 11+ members including horns, bongo drums and 3 fabulous front singers made the songs sound amazing. I would highly recommend Janis Nowlan Band for any event. If you want a dance party, this band is the band for you!” – Kate

Wedding: 6/21/2014 
Best Band Ever. I may be biased but I think the Janis Nowlan band is by far the best wedding band I have ever seen. Guests were on the dance floor all night and raved about how much energy the band brought to the party. They were so good that band members from another renowned band playing at a different wedding stopped by to hear them play! I highly recommend Janis Nowlan to anyone who wants a classy but FUN wedding reception. In fact, one of my bridesmaids has already booked them for her wedding! Thank you for making the night such a huge success Janis & crew!
 
Wedding: 08/10/2014 
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!!!
 
Wedding: 9/6/2014 

Can’t Imagine Anything Better! 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!)

Wedding 3/29/14

 The Janis Nowlan Band is the most AMAZING wedding band there is! My husband and I went to one of their showcases and after only a couple of songs, we knew this was the band we needed to have at our wedding! Their energy is high and you can tell immediately how passionate they are about what they do! AND they can perform ANY type of music! Our guests did not leave the dance floor the entire night, and neither did I! :) Our family and friends are still raving about how amazing our band was! Friends thought that John Legend was actually there performing our wedding song, that’s how perfect the Janis Nowlan Band sounds! Janis and her team are such a pleasure to work with. They are so accommodating with any and all requests and they truly treat you like family. If you’re looking for a band for your upcoming event, you should look no further! :) 

May 10, 2014 Wedding  

I have actually had the pleasure of experiencing the Janis Nowlan Band on 3 occasions since 2008. As a result of my first attendance at an event where they were playing, I have since hired her two more times for events, including my wedding a little over a week ago. The Janis Nowlan Band is amazing. They change their set list on the fly depending on what the guests are reacting to. This, in my opinion, is far better than sticking to some stuffy set list that no one (apparently) wants to dance to. Janis even made the decision during my wedding to extend the father-daughter dance because, due to some extenuating circumstances, she had a feeling something might change during the dance. Because of Janis’ gut instinct, she was right. Things did change and as a result, the dance ended up perfect!

 As a result of Janis’ and the entire band’s ability to read the crowd, my entire guest list, including people who self-profess not to dance, spent the majority of the evening on the dance floor! We have gotten rave reviews about how much fun our wedding was, mainly because of the Janis Nowlan Band. We will be forever grateful. I just can’t say enough about how amazing this band is!

While Janis is situated outside of Philadelphia, she will travel, and did – all the way to Greenwich, CT for us. So if you are having an event within a reasonable driving distance, you can’t go wrong with the Janis Nowlan Band if you want it to be a memorable event! Just make sure you book her early because her time fills up fast!

 Oh, and one more thing – if you hire Janis and you need to put down your own dance floor, err on the side of bigger rather than smaller. Trust me, you’ll use it!

Fantastic Band. Nonstop dancing the whole night!

Paul and I had an amazing time at our wedding!!! We LOVEDDD the band and the guests could not stop raving about how wonderful ALL the music was. The dance floor was nonstop all night and anytime I went to take a break I couldn’t because it was another great song. It was so packed. People had so much fun. I really couldn’t imagine a better band. SIMPLY AMAZING!!! Janis was wonderful to work with throughout this whole process. So professional. So fun! Loved it, loved it, loved it. Janis Nowlan and her bandmates are great performers. They were great and it must be fulfilling for them to bring so much joy to people!!! On a special note, they let my sisters join them to perform our first dance! It really meant so much to them and to me. Also, a word of advice— Janis knows her stuff. We had no real play lists. Just let her take the lead and you’ll be happy.

Outdoor Free Concert June 2014 

 MainlineBiz.com “…from the first chord they struck, we knew this band was solid gold. The interaction between the band members is totally in-sync and the way they collectively draw the audience in is truly amazing! They welcome you into their world, at which point you can’t resist the urge to get up… get down and get funky! It’s NO surprise that they have won “Best of.. ” awards for Weddings and Dance Parties year after year – they’re UBER talented, totally engaging with their audience, and their play list melds generations together…leaving no ‘Greatest Generation’ers, Baby-Boomers, or X’ers behind! Even the tots were teetering with good vibes!...The Janis Nowlan Band will ROCK your world! Next time you get a wedding invitation, ask who’s doing the music…if it’s Janis Nowlan, check the ‘Will Attend’ box and go party… Yeeeehaaaa!”

Wedding: 11/16/2013 

The Best!

Words cannot express how amazing Janis Nowlan Band is. The music was such a hit at our wedding and all of our guests are still talking about it! Their energy and talent had everyone on the dance floor all night. 

Janis is so wonderful to work with. She gave me great suggestions for entrance songs and her band learned the song we wanted as our first dance song. It came out perfect- I could not have asked for better!

I highly recommend Janis Nowlan Band! They make your wedding day extra special. I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding day so special!

Wedding: 10/5/2013 

Best Wedding Band

I can’t begin to tell you how many people have complimented us on how “amazing the band was” at our wedding. No one sat down the entire time and they played great music- classics to current pop. I can’t say enough about how happy I am that I booked The JNB EARLY! Janis is also VERY organized which was very helpful during the stressful planning period. You can’t go wrong- book early!

 Wedding: 11/30/2013 

Best Band Ever   

For someone who said the number one thing that he was looking forward to at the wedding reception was the band, the fact that the Janis Nowlan Band met and exceeded my expectations says big things about them. The band not only learned our wedding song, but they rocked it. They hit every song we threw at them, keeping the energy of the night at the right level every time. As a music critic, I couldn’t have been more happy, with every instrument coming across clean. My mom and I did “Moon River” for our song and it will be something we will have to cherish forever. Thank you Janis and band!!!

Wedding: 11/30/2013 

If you haven’t seen Janis Nowlan Band, you are missing out!! 

Janis Nowlan Band MADE our wedding. 14 years ago they played for my sister’s wedding and 14 years later people are still talking about it. That was the band my now husband and I wanted, and now our guests are and will be talking about Janis’s band for years to come! They were the first band we went to listen to and they were the last band we came back to. By far THE best wedding band you could ever have!

My husband and I are deeply vested into music and we wanted a band that would knock the socks off of our family and friends. Janis Nowlan came with 200% energy, and ended the party with the same! They are extremely talented musicians and vocalists and played non-stop, keeping the dance floor alive and packed the entire night. They learned our wedding song that 99% of our guests did not know, an ‘indie’ song, and nailed it spot-on. Several of our friends came up to us noting how beautifully played it was!!

We could not have asked for a better, more energetic, more talented, and awesome band to play for our wedding day! If you haven’t checked them out, you are missing out. Thank you Janis Nowlan Band for everything you did to make our day THE BEST EVER!!!

Wedding: 8/30/2013 

A blast!    

Awesome energy, kept everyone on the dance floor the ENTIRE night, large catalog of songs, willing to learn new songs, Janis does an awesome job of MCing the event. Several friends have asked about the band because of their time at our wedding. THANK you Janis and team for an amazing night we had a blast and so did all our guests!!!

Wedding: 11/30/2013 

The BEST BAND/ORCHESTRA IN THE USA!

In my opinion and that of our 210 guests, this is best band that they or we have ever heard. This was our SECOND TIME using Janis and her 12 member band. Yes, 12. The first time was in March 1999 for our eldest daughter, and ever since that wedding, our guests have said that they still have never heard a more talented group of musicians and vocalists than Janis’s in 1999. Therefore for our second daughter’s wedding in Nov 2013, there was no doubt that we wanted to have her play again! Our guests were thrilled to be treated to a second “concert” by the Janis Nowlan Orchestra! YES, they wowed everyone, and there was not one moment without her magical mixture of music from beginning to end!

Her forte is her extensive repertoire of songs! Janis is a true professional, courteous, and well-organized. She is flexible and listens closely to what your desires are! She is a wonderful emcee as well. 

She cares sincerely about every bride and groom and the wedding guests. This isn’t just a “gig” for her. She loves what she does, and her joy and excitement as well as that of the band is ever present!! She is a lovely, lovely person. She sings herself and plays the piano. 

Her band members are so talented! Janis utilizes well the strengths of the horn sections, the amazing drummer, and her 3 incredible vocalists. The choreography is spectacular! You would think

you were at a concert! Our guests enjoyed a full night of dancing!

I have already told Janis that when our last child gets married, she has to return again!!

Wedding: 9/13/2013 

Fantastic!!

I cannot say enough great things about Janis Nowlan Band. They were absolutely fantastic! The music was such a hit at our wedding. Every time someone commented on how much fun they had at our wedding, they mentioned how great the band was.

 This band can play practically anything. We liked a mix of new and old music. They were able to go back and forth between both with no problem at all. I provided a lot of suggestions of what kind of music my family like, and they created a set list that had everyone dancing all night long. I didn’t even need to provide that many selections. I just told Janis a few of my favorites and she knew exactly the kind of party we expected.

 Also, they don’t sound like an ordinary wedding band. They’re voices are great and the musicians are awesome. The sound that was coming out of them was unbelievable. I was impressed with some of the more current dance music they were even able to pull off.

 When picking out our special songs, Janis was a big help. I didn’t have anything picked out besides our first dance and she was great at providing suggestions for introductions, parent dances, cake cutting, everything. It saved me a lot of time and her suggestions were perfect.

 Everyone was non-stop dancing from the moment the party started until the party ended. I would love to relive the whole thing so I could dance and listen to the music again. 

 Janis Nowlan Band was one of the highlights of our wedding. All I cared about was good food and great music. Well they definitely fulfilled the great music criteria. They are pricey, like most bands, but totally worth the splurge. If you splurge on anything, get this band! They are totally worth it!!

 Wedding: 6/23/2013 

Janis Nowlan Band

We went to a wedding two years ago that used Janis Nowlan band, we fell in love. When it was time to plan our wedding, we had to choose Janis Nowlan. Our wedding was amazing and Janis kept the party going the entire night. Janis Nowlan band plays every kind of song that will appeal to everyone.

 Amazing!

Janis and her band were wonderful!!! Janice was so organized and so excited for us from the very beginning. She went over everything with our planner to make sure they were on top of everything and the timing would work out. The jazz trio at cocktail hour was perfect and exactly what were hoping for. The band for the rest of the night was wonderful!!! They got every person at our wedding on the dance floor for the entire night! they kept that party going for hours and were amazing!

The entire band was a pleasure to work with!

 Wedding: 6/21/2013 

Couldn’t have asked for more

Janis and her band were brilliant. 

My wife and I couldn’t have asked for more from them. Janis personally called months before the wedding to check in on us and did the same as the day got closer to lock in our song selections. My wife and I provided a song list and, to her word, Janis and her band stuck to it faithfully, while also spicing it up with a few selections of her own.

Janis has been and will be our recommendation to any friends who are planning a wedding.

 Wedding: 6/21/2013 

My Dream Wedding

The biggest priority on my list was to have an amazing band to get the party started. Janis Nowlan Band went beyond that. They fulfilled every need we had. The music was unbelievable. All 200 guests were up dancing and did not come close to sitting down. If a bride wants to have the best time of her life for herself and her guests, you must book this band. They truly are the nicest, most talented individuals I have encountered. No other wedding band comes close to the quality and performance of the Janis Nowlan Band.

 Wedding: 6/21/2013 

Janis Nowlan Band “Party With The Best!”

For those of you who are planning a wedding and are deciding on their music, look no further. I encourage you to check out the “Janis Nowlan Band”. My daughter recently got married to the love of her life in June, 2013 and Janis made our planning stress free. The music was awesome and everyone was up dancing all night. She and her band never once took a break. 

I can’t thank them enough for making this wedding day extra special. Check them out and you’ll see some extremely talented people.

The AMAZING Janis Nowlan Band!!

I don’t even know how I can put into words how AMAZING Janis and the band were for our wedding! Janis is professional, efficient, and most importantly fun! She listens to what you have to say but also gives her opinion on options…and believe me, you should go with what she says! She knows what she is doing…her suggestions for song choices and timelines were spot on! I still have guests calling about THE BAND!!! and even some of the specific songs! Literally our entire crowd was dancing all night long. Each singer and band member were just so perfect…and looked like they were having fun right with us! We are beyond thankful…our wedding was perfect much in part to them…they kept everything going. And I will NEVER forget our first dance song!
