“Everyone was blown away by the energy and sound from Eric Nicolas and One Love. There really are no words to truly explain how amazing they were. The dance floor was never empty and our guests have not stopped talking about how incredible our band was. We could not be happier with our choice to have Eric and his band play at our wedding. They went above and beyond to make sure that our night was perfect!!! They are talented and professional and they helped make our wedding a night we will never forget.”

Eric and his band played at our wedding and absolutely knocked it out of the park! Not only did my husband and I love the band, but we received SO many raving reviews about the band from our guests (so we knew we weren't being biased!). The band had guests up on the dance floor before salad was even served and it stayed that way the whole night! They played an awesome combination of music for both young adult and older crowds. The band even learned our favorite song which was not originally in their repertoire and totally rocked it. In addition to their stellar performance at the wedding, Eric and his team were super easy to reach and engaged leading up to the wedding - which totally put us at ease during the planning stage. If you are thinking about this band, LOOK NO FURTHER!

Eric Nicolas here, writing to tell you some basics about us, and to share excerpts from a few of the many rave reviews we’re lucky to have collected from our grateful clients.

I started One Love in the mid-’90s, playing a few Fridays a month to crazy-happy dancing crowds at Manhattan’s legendary Le Bar Bat and at other clubs around New York. We didn’t call ourselves an “event band” or a “party band” or a “wedding band.” But we soon found that our way with a crowd did lend itself to those kinds of shindigs.
Through hundreds of shows and private events on three continents, we’ve secured our reputation as one of the reliably, truly great party bands of the East Coast. We love playing together!!
“This band is composed of real professionals who know what they are doing and clearly enjoy it, and that is a mood that extends to their audience. As an Executive Vice-President of Atlantic Records and the manager of several major international music artists, I feel qualified to tell you that this is simply the best wedding band out there.”
