JANIS NOWLAN BAND
“The Most Unforgettable Dance Party Of Your Life!”

Dan L‘s Review On The Knot
“I argued with my wife about a band vs a DJ – I’ve been to weddings where the band just wasn’t “on” and it just kills the mood of a party. I was even more skeptical when I was reading reviews of Janis – “Nobody can be THAT good”, I thought to myself. I was wrong. Janis and the rest of her band were amazing. You don’t need to worry with Janis, she does all that for you! But in truth, what she does is put on a show with a personal touch and class/grace that’s a step beyond what anyone would expect. We have been getting compliments all week from her show and I couldn’t be happier with our decision. Her piano playing for the ceremony brought me to tears. Her guitarist ripped off a rock solo that literally stopped the room in its tracks, listening to him shred until they transitioned into AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long”. Find me another band that can do that! This isn’t a “wedding band”. It’s not even a band that plays weddings. Janis and the crew are an experience. Book them and you will NOT be disappointed.”

Jacqueline said… There are not enough words to express how much I LOVE this band nor is there enough stars to rate them! I always told myself that when I got married I would have a DJ instead of a live band. Well, that all changed when I got the chance to see the Janis Nowlan Band play at a friends wedding. I was in love and instantly hooked! I knew that this was the band I wanted for my wedding. As soon as my husband and I were engaged, I contacted Janis. I then took my husband and my parents to one of the band’s showcases and they were blown away! Janis is an incredible person! During the entire planning process she checked in and asked about our family and it felt like we had known her our whole lives! When the big day started to get closer, Janis made sure she took care of everything. We were able to pick our wedding song and parent dance songs as well as all the songs they played at our wedding. This band has no limits! They can play anything from country to soul to pop to rock, even the popular novelty dances! We went over introductions, ceremony music, cocktail music, EVERYTHING. Janis made sure that I had one less thing to stress about. When it came time to dance, the amazing band was incredible and they didn’t miss a beat! They had everyone from my 1&1/2 year old daughter to my 92 year old grandmother on the dance floor! We had the perfect wedding and I have to give a big thank you to the Janis Nowlan Band for being a big part of that perfect day!

We had the pleasure of having the incredible Janis nowlan band perform at our wedding on 9/25/16. After an initial phone call with Janis, we attended their showcase. They were the only band we went to see, by far the best out of all the weddings either of us have been to… so right then and there we cancelled our plans to see other bands, they were that amazing! When it comes to planning, Janis is so organized and on top of your wedding schedule, and she is so warm and cheerful on the phone it was always a pleasure to hear from her throughout the wedding planning process. We had so much fun choosing the songs we wanted for our setlist and narrowing the songs down was so hard because they have an incredible range. They even agreed to learn my husbands favorite song which is an obscure Grateful Dead song called Peggy-O… the guitarist/singer knocked it out of the park ! We had them for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. They did an amazing job with our introductions and hora and kept everyone dancing all night, even my mother who I have never seen dance before. Our guests were literally looking at each other in amazement at how good the band was, and so many people commented that their songs sounded just like the originals. When they called the last song we couldn’t believe it was already over, and now we wish we could have another party so we can bring Janis and her band back! We had an outdoor wedding at the waterworks which is a public space, we found out later that when they heard the music, passerbys stopped to dance in the street for hours! Do not hesitate to book the Janis Nowlan band, your guests will be so impressed when they walk in and see the 13 piece band on stage… then after the party they won’t stop raving after they’ve heard the BEST!!!

“I couldn’t walk for two days!!! Because I spent my entire wedding on the dance floor. And I would do it again!”Janis Nowlan Band Wedding Party Dance Reception“The energy and love was electric on that dance floor and we owe it to this phenomenal band.”

“Because I spent my entire wedding on the dance floor. And I would do it again! The Janis Nowlan Band hit it out of the park! The dance floor was full all night – which was exactly what we wanted. And the quality of their performance and sound was second to none. We had multiple friends inquire afterwards for the name of the band – complete hit! On a personal note, Janis was amazing. She really got what we were looking for – a complete range in music genres. Everything from old standards to Motown to some funky 70’s/80’s thrown in for good measure. Not every band is up to the task, but Janis and her gang of maestros carried it off!!!! And I would book them again in a heartbeat. They even learned two new songs just for us! It meant the world! Thank you Janis! If music is an important element of your celebration and you want a dynamic band, look no further!”

“I will preface this by saying I am not someone who usually acts on hunches or gut feelings. I usually research the HELL out of things before making a decision, especially when it is a major spend. From the first time I spoke with Janis, I knew she and her band would make our wedding a personalized experience, something unique to me and my husband. We listened to a couple of videos online and read some reviews, but not a lot. And then we went to a showcase. This was the first and last showcase we attended. My now husband and I decided after their first set that the Janis Nowlan Band was the perfect band for our wedding. They are true musicians, not just wedding singers. Every single one of this 11 piece band is magnificent. Janis is both the bandleader and the clerk of the works — she pays attention to every detail to make sure song requests are honored, the wedding party and parents announced, and the party runs smoothly. In dealing with her in the months, weeks, and days leading up to the wedding, I would have thought that ours was the only wedding on their calendar! Our wedding was just a few weeks ago and the notes from guests are still streaming in — most of them comment on how amazing the band was! Everyone from age 8 to 85 literally danced from the get-go until the last note. So fun!”

Three weddings, special birthday celebrations, and a holiday office party were made more memorable because of this fabulous band.”“I cannot say enough about JNB’s musical talent but what made the planning process and night all the more meaningful was the dedication and passion for excellence that Janis exudes.

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! Thank you for everything”
