CelebrationReviewed on September 14, 2017From Cliffside Park, NJ

B.D. and his band are absolutely amazing!!! We were hosting a business cocktail party and asked for a jazz quartet (guitar, bass, drum, saxophone). The very moment when they started playing everyone was like "WOWWWW"... The music was good, the band was easy to work with, and I would highly recommend them. Hopefully we can work with them again in the future.

B.D. Lenz and his musicians were amazing. They were total professionals and some of the most talented musicians I’ve heard. I would have bought tickets to hear them play at a venue. They were also completely accommodating playing just about whatever we wanted or just mixing it up finding the perfect groove for the room. A number of my guests came up to me complimenting B.D. I cant recommend them enough. Whatever your event they will only take it to the next level.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on May 4, 2019From Newtown, PA

We booked B.D. and his band for our wedding last month at Rose Bank Winery and they were absolutely AWESOME! B.D. was extremely professional and top notch from the very first interaction. We wanted to have jazz music as part of our event but also wanted a band that could play other things well on top of that. And that's exactly what we got! They did jazz music during the cocktail hour. Our guests loved it! During the reception they had everyone dancing. They also learned "I Love You (For Sentimental Reasons)" by Nat King Cole for our first dance. Thank you, Justin, for making that moment so perfect! Our guests had a great time! This band is truly talented!

Private PartyReviewed on May 31, 2015From Maplewood, NJ

Absolutely first-class experience with BD Lenz start-to-finish. Super easy communications - BD would get back to emails / calls quickly. Very accommodating - BD worked with us to make sure we had play list we liked. When weather turned outdoor bash to an indoor party for 100 people, BD and his band had no problem setting up inside and giving an amazing performance. Very professional every step of the way. Best part - wonderful music that our guests were raving about. Cool songs. Got the crowd dancing. If it weren't a Sunday evening we would have had them keep the crowd going more. Would love another opportunity to hire them. We highly recommend BD Lenz!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 11, 2018From Barrytown, NY

BD Lenz was great. He played acoustic guitar during our wedding ceremony, and then the whole band played during the cocktail hour and reception. Everything was great. Awesome, friendly, and professional musicians, nice coordination, on time, and most importantly everyone loved listening and dancing to their music! Thanks guys! You really tied the party together. --Michael

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 3, 2015From Sparta, NJ

B.D and the gang were FANTASTIC from the start. We went to see them at a bar in western NJ and they were fantastic. Since the day we booked them to play our wedding, B.D. was one of the most professional, responsive & friendly vendors we dealt with! Let me tell you - he's worth his weight in gold. We can't wait to have another excuse to have a party and have B.D. play it! Thanks!

New Year's Eve PartyReviewed on December 31, 2018From Lakeville, CT

BD did a fabulous job keeping me informed with every detail months before our event. His group was amazing and we were so happy to have him and his group entertain our Guests at the roaring 20's party. Everyone was so pleased! Can't wait until next year!! We have also addedd his group to our recommended list for Weddings as several Guests were inquiring throughour the evening.

It was freezing and pouring - but B.D. Lenz played on like it was a beautiful, sunny day! We are so appreciative of that. He did a wonderful job and we had several customers ask if he will be coming back - for sure! We cannot wait to have an event in the future so we can witness another performance!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on June 19, 2021From Brielle, NJ

B.D Lenz played at my Fiancé's 30th birthday party and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! They arrived on time, were professional throughout, and most importantly, they sounded amazing. They truly made the event. I would highly recommend!

Community EventReviewed on May 29, 2021From Hancock, NY

We ended up with poor weather for our day. Not once did the band complain. They showed up and put on a great show! They didn’t care how big the event was or what the weather was. They gave us a first rate performance! We can’t wait to have them back next year, everyone loved them!

Community EventReviewed on December 13, 2018From Brooklyn, NY

B.D. Lenz and crew were a breeze to work with from start to finish. Very communicative, flexible, and professional. The crew was very talented and adapted right in with the theme and style we needed for our event. I definitely recommend to everyone!! 5 stars all around.

B.D. is the man. A true master of his craft. Your audience would be honored by him and his band. They played "What's Goin On" by Marvin Gaye. 5 days after the event i still can't get their rendition out of my head. Kudos BD, would hire you again in a heart beat.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on May 18, 2019From New York City, NY

We hired B.D. and his band - 6 pieces/ vocals - to play at our wedding this past Saturday. The event was held on three decks of a boat. B.D. and his players were phenomenal, adapting beautifully. B.D. and his sax player played on the open deck during the ceremony as we passed the Statue of Liberty, performing beautifully (including All You Need Is Love). During cocktails, they played welcoming music, setting the mood for the night. For dinner, they went eclectic, playing perfect jazz, Jimi Hendrix and all our requests. But the best was last, on the dancing deck. Two straight hours of Motown, Stax, Stevie Wonder, etc. Couldn't get people off the dance floor!

Engagement PartyReviewed on January 28, 2017From Ridgewood, NJ

Everything about my experience with B.D.'s group speaks to their talent and professionalism. Communication with B.D. in advance of the party was easy and he was always incredibly pleasant, responsive and professional. The band showed up on time, set up and was ready to go before any of the guests arrived. The quality of their performance was perhaps most impressive of all. I hired B.D. with 2 additional musicians and their three piece group provided the sound of a 5 piece band. They were great. Read the room at different stages of the party and performed the right music at the right time. I'm incredibly pleased with them and wouldn't hesitate to hire them again.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on September 10, 2015From Peapack, NJ

We had originally planned to hire BD Lenz for a one hour event, and due to high security regulations and clearance for our site, which included numerous correspondence, we made BD Lenz miserable (they never said a word; we assumed because we are considered to be "clients from hell"). They complied with every single demand we made and provided such an impeccable customer care to our international organization, we had no choice but to book them for the entire 4 hour event. BD Lenz's performance was off the chart and at the end of everything, we were left speechless with a single word; WOW!!! We highly recommend BD Lenz for all your musical events... You guys Rock!!!

WeddingReviewed on October 5, 2013From New York City, NY

B.D. Lenz played at our wedding at City Winery in NYC, and were truly instrumental in making the evening an unforgettable one. Planning a wedding can be a bit stressful, but B.D. was so incredibly easy to work with and accommodating- it was a pleasure. All of the band members are extremely talented and you just can't help but dance the entire time they are playing. We had musician friends as guests of the wedding, and they were equally impressed. It's now the day after the wedding and we are already thinking of another party we can throw just to see them perform again! They are the best.

WeddingReviewed on July 20, 2014From Big Indian, NY

BD Lenz and his six piece band played our wedding reception and the jazz trio played our cocktail hour- and we couldn't be happier! Leading up to the event, BD spent time with us via email and skype to go over all the details. They learned two songs for us, and they rocked it! The dance floor was packed the whole night. Our guests even cheered for an encore- and they played one more song! (which I've never seen happen at a wedding before!) We got many, many compliments from guests that it was the best wedding band they have ever seen. My husband and I are both live music fans, and we felt like we were at our own private concert. This band made our wedding awesome!

WeddingReviewed on September 30, 2012From Riverhead, NY

BD Lenz was the absolute perfect wedding band for us. They were easy to work with, extremely accommodating, and just an unbelievable group of musicians. BD was easily reachable via phone/email leading up to the day, and was completely professional throughout. They really knew how to keep people up dancing all night and even allowed me to come up and play a song with my old band. BD stayed up and played some lead guitar, just such an awesome experience. Music is so important to my wife and I, and there's no better band we could think of to play on our day. Please, please, please hire this band. You won't be sorry!!!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on May 19, 2012From Township of Washington, NJ

The musicians were great and the professionalism was the best. They are the best and you should definitely hire this band for your wedding. I am the strictest reviewer so two out of the five criteria's I gave them 4.5 stars, but trust me this the highest grade you will get from me. So that is near perfect. I doubt you will find any other band out there that will beat this band for your wedding. And you will know that this is a real review, because I didn’t give him all 5's. B.D. Lenz is very professional and he will return your calls and emails. I am very hard to please and his band's performance and service was excellent and he delivered.
