  • My husband and I worked with Bill prior to the wedding, to select songs, share the names of guests to announce for the entrances, describe special songs with dances, etc. He was INCREDIBLY helpful -- Bill shared his expertise, offered guidance, etc. Jose was our DJ for the actual wedding. He sought our opinions when necessary and did a fantastic job of announcing names, helping to direct some family group shots, announcing the cake cutting, getting the crowd excited, etc. The only follow-up that was required was reminding Jose to tell guests they could take the flowers at the end of the night, and announcing to guests that they should meet outside for our exit. Otherwise, absolutely amazing vendor! Would recommend, 10/10.

  • We used Black Tie Entertainment for our wedding in December 2019 and were so glad we did. We don’t live in the Syracuse area, so we weren’t able to meet Bill until the day of our wedding, but we always felt like we were in good hands with him and Black Tie. From our first phone call with Bill about 7 months before the wedding, we felt really comfortable with Bill. He listened to all of our thoughts and concerns, and gave helpful recommendations when we asked for them (i.e. timing and order of events during our reception). Most importantly, Bill & Black Tie exceeded our expectations the night of our wedding. We had mentioned to Bill that we wanted our reception to be lively with lots of dancing, and that’s exactly what happened. We received so many comments from our guests about how the DJ did a great job keeping the party going, and the dance floor was full almost the whole night. Additionally, Bill was very accommodating of our requests even on the day of the wedding. We had... Read more

  • All of my other vendors recommended Black Tie to us, so we had high expectations from the start. Bill and team absolutely met our expectations - from suggestions during the planning phase, plenty of pre-event communication, to the actual reception itself. Our guests had such a wonderful time, and the music was calibrated perfectly throughout the evening. Bill was a great emcee, and kept the order of events moving smoothly while checking in with us throughout the night. The uplighting option is absolutely worth it, and the candlelight hue we chose gave the reception room a great ambiance. Highly recommend!

  • Black Tie Entertainment was the most amazing DJ service! Our wedding was months ago and we still have guests telling us that they have never danced that much at a wedding ever before! The dance floor was packed ALL night!! Bill was super responsive with our inquiry and very helpful in planning out the night! Our DJ for the night was Jose! He was AMAZING!! He kept the reception running smoothly and on time and made sure we had all of our important moments captured before our photographer left! The music was awesome!!! We provided a list of some of our favorite songs and Jose filled in the rest with more great music that we loved! He completely read the room all night and kept everyone up and dancing until the very end!!! We couldn’t be happier with our choice! And so thankful to Black Tie and Jose for the best night!!!

  • Jose did a great job. He used our suggestions and picked music to keep everyone on the dance floor. He knew songs we wanted without having to tell him. He was also very personable and professional. Would highly recommend him

  • We were very pleased with Bob and the music he played the night of our 50th anniversary party, at the Genesee Grande. The music was perfect for what we wanted. People commented how much they enjoyed the music and how they were able to talk without having the music drowning out their voices. They also loved the fact that Bob was able to take requests and play great music for dancing. I didn’t realize how important having the right DJ was until that night. It really helped to make the evening special. Thank you Bob! I highly recommend Black Tie Entertainment!

  • Bill and his team are AMAZING. They were so easy to work with, and very helpful. Everything ahead of time was wonderful. Bill was very responsive and did a great job answering any questions that we had. We got so many compliments on how amazing our DJ was. There were people on the dance floor all night. It was the perfect combination of music that worked for all of the guests at our wedding. Our parents and older guests had some fun and classic hits that they loved but there were also newer songs that we loved and our younger guests enjoyed. The music at the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception was all fantastic. Bill was on top of keeping things on schedule. He did a great job always checking in with us throughout the night, he was so professional and incredible. The uplighting was beautiful and was a really nice touch to the wedding. Thank you Bill!!

  • We held our wedding at BVB and cannot recommend it enough. It is an absolutely beautiful venue - the area, the view, the trees, the pond, and of course the space itself. The inside of the barn is gorgeous and the owner has updated it nicely and kept it well maintained. We had countless comments from guests about how unbelievable the venue was. The process of visiting and making the arrangements for the wedding was very seamless. The owner, Kari, is very accommodating, professional, and easy to work with. Throughout the planning stages and on the actual day of, she was tremendous to work with. She truly made every effort to ensure that our day went off without any issues. Overall we were so pleased with Best View Barn and we would easily recommend the venue a thousand times over.

  • We recently had Bob DJ our wedding on Saturday 9/22/18 and I honestly cannot say enough good things about him! When we first met with Bill (the owner) at our original meeting, we instantly were sold. He was so personable and we knew we were in good hands. We did not know who exactly was going to DJ our wedding until a few weeks before the wedding and I knew the instant I spoke with Bob that we liked him already. We struggled with some song choices during our initial meeting with Bob and he even texted me on several occasions with song choice recommendations that came into his head at random times. That was so appreciative and he made me feel like not as another bride. We also had a strict "no music older than the 80's" request for our reception music and he ensured that what we requested is what we got! He had such high energy and the dance floor was packed all night! I was worried that the introductions were going to sound too rehearsed or announced just because of experiences we hav... Read more

  • Bill was wonderful to work with! He provided uplighting and DJ services for our ballroom reception and he surpassed our expectations. He made time to meet with us and check in with us throughout the planning process and he stuck to our music preferences and helped keep the evening running on a seamless schedule. He was friendly and professional and knew exactly when to provide suggestions based on his experience and he did not steer us wrong at all. We loved working with him and we love the memories he helped us make on the dance floor at our reception.

  • Bill and Bob were not only incredibly easy to work with, but ensured everything was perfect that day. Things I wouldn't have thought of during the night like "do I really want to interrupt dancing for a bouquet toss," were handled by Bob with ease. I planned my wedding from across the country and Bill was super responsive with email and we got the chance to meet the week before which was amazing. We had a choreographed surprise first dance and timing, sound quality, everything was perfect. There's nothing I hate more than a dj who loves the sound of his own voice and just talks the whole night haha- Bob knew what to say to get the party going, played the right songs to ensure that everyone was on the dance floor, and kept it entertaining. He stayed an extra hour no questions asked which was amazing. Thank you black tie!!

  • We had to be the most indecisive and clueless couple when it came to music for our reception. Our only request was no country music. They helped us choose the ideal style of music for the reception and did not play a single country song. We also rented a photobooth for the reception and it was a hit! Guests received print outs of the photos and my husband and I received a USB with all the photobooth photos on it as well, which was fantastic for us to cherish and guests to choose their favorite individual ones. They made everything so easy and provided so much fun to us and our guests!

  • We were not completely disappointed with our wedding DJ, but we weren’t exactly blown away either. We were reassured over and over that not allowing guests to request songs was the way to go (which I originally agreed with) because we should let our DJ “do their job” and read the crowd. However, the songs played were nothing different than a playlist our DJ played at a wedding a few weeks prior (that our guests that attended that wedding pointed out) When I went to try to intervene, I said “can you play something from like 2006-2010, to which I was told “The music isn’t organized that way.” as the bride I was preoccupied with different things so couldn’t think of songs off the top of my head, so I walked away disappointed. In hindsight, I should have grabbed my phone and picked some songs off my playlists but, again, something the bride shouldn’t have to do. If it was their job to read the crowd, our DJ failed to do so. I had to intervene to try to request songs becau... Read more

  • We absolutely loved our DJ, it was our absolute favorite part of the wedding! Jose was so much fun and really brought the party. We wish that he would have played a few more of the songs that we requested, but that is the only feedback that we can provide. Everyone loved the photo booth, it was an absolute hit. It was so much fun to go back and watch the videos and pictures that our guests left for us. Black Tie accidentally gave us an open air photo booth when we had originally ordered a closed photo booth. I told them about the mistake and they fixed it very promptly and professionally. We would absolutely recommend Black Tie to everyone.

  • BTE was an amazing DJ service for our wedding on 7/21/18. Our initial contact with them resulted in a very fast response with lots of great conversation to get the ball rolling on booking their services. We had our wedding at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, which requires multiple set up locations for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. This was no issue at all, BTE was completely prepared to handle that, and they were very professional and friendly during all of our conversations. Before the wedding, we met with them face to face to discuss our song list and the order of the day. Additionally, they set aside one morning to meet us at the zoo to see up-lighting canisters in the reception hall to help us choose a color after seeing it in-person. During this time, they shared their insight from their experience and gave us great ideas such as having our wedding party join mid way through our first dance to get good photos and distract from our otherwise middle school sway d...
