  • Our guests spent most of the night on the dance floor thanks to Steve. He had guests of all ages dancing, including our grandparents (which was a shock to my family!!). And the best part was that we only had to give him a few guidelines and he picked music that made everyone happy. He was able to get everyone up and moving without be loud and obnoxious and we had many compliments about BTE from our guests. They were wonderful to work with and exceeded our expectations.

  • I cannot rave enough about Bill from Black Tie Entertainment! He was a joy to work with from start to finish. He kept the dance floor packed with people who did not stop moving. Without hesitation, Bill is the man that you want to do your wedding!

  • Black Tie Entertainment knows how to throw a real party! Everyone was having a blast at our wedding - dance floor was packed the entire night. We gave them pretty free rein by just giving them a few genres we liked and to go with the mood of the night. People are still raving about how much fun they had and how great our DJ Mike was!

  • Black Tie Entertainment (BTE) was fantastic. We recently got married at the Turning Casino and Resort and hired BTE as our DJ for both our ceremony (on the great lawn of the resort) and reception. Leading up to the wedding, BTE was very responsive. We had certain songs we wanted played at certain times and they worked with us before the wedding and had several excellent suggestions to improve on what we wanted. The music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception was great. The timing for the ceremony songs was perfect and there was a perfect mix of dancing and dinner music at the reception. The few announcements and introductions that we had discussed were done very professionally. BTE also coordinated with the reception staff at the Turning Stone to make sure everything went smoothly -- the timing of the toasts, the cake cutting, etc. We, especially my now husband, is very into music and did not want the typical cookie cutter songs played. He was extreme... Read more

  • My husband & I just got married last weekend, and already multiple people have commented on how great our music was. And not just the dancing music, although it was fantastic, I have received compliments on the dinner music selections as well. Bill was so professional; he spoke with my husband & I a few times during the reception which was perfect. He did not question us endlessly, nor did he keep us out of the loop. He knew what to do about everything and I felt confident hiring him that all would be well. I was not disappointed! The whole evening flowed perfectly, from speeches to the blessing to a mike out on the floor while we sang along, and I had no worries about anything related to the transition from dinner to dancing or the music itself. Thanks so much BTE!

  • My wife and I recently used Black Tie Entertainment for our wedding, and to say we were thrilled would be an understatement!!! We looked into several DJ's and Black Tie Entertainment was far and away the best choice. Bill is very professional and easy to work with, and when you're planning a wedding that is very important. He has an uncanny ability to understand your vision and then to IMPROVE on it! The reception was a full six hours and the dance floor was packed for all but the dinner hour! Bill kept the music and the party jumping until they turned the lights on at midnight. My 88 year old Grandmother even stayed until the end of the night! We couldn't believe how many people told us that they hadn't danced like they did that night in years! My wife and I would like to thank Bill and Black Tie Entertainment for helping to make our night the best and most memorable of our lives. We would highly recommend Black Tie Entertainment for any occasion! Thanks so much Bill!

  • Black Tie Entertainment surpassed my expectations! They were attentive all night, played wonderful music and really kept the whole evening moving seemlessly. Bill Dj'd our wedding and he did an amazing job!! The music flowed perfectly from the minute the ceremony started, to the last song of the night! I would highly recommend working with Black Tie Entertainment, they will not dissapoint!!

  • We were married two weeks ago and Bill was our DJ. In our opinion, the DJ was the most critical part of the reception and we knew that the DJ could make or break our event. Needless to say, we definitely did our homework on DJ services in Central New York. The very first thing we said to Bill was that we wanted a party...and a party is what we had! From start to finish Bill was an absolute pleasure to work with. Prior to the wedding, most of our communications were via e-mail. We had just one in-person meeting. Bill listened to us very well and accommodated every single request we had. Our reception took place in three different rooms. We thought that this would present a challenge as far as sound was concerned; Bill took it upon himself to set up an additional sound system so the sound could be heard throughout. We gave him very general guidelines as to the type of music we wanted played during certain portions of the evening. He did a great job with the song selections and is a mast... Read more

  • Black Tie Entertainment just did our wedding on Oct 3, 2009. Being a military couple stationed overseas, we were worried that having only two meetings might make it hard for the DJ and us. It was the opposite-Bill made us feel right at ease the minute we met him, and did a great job keeping in touch with us throughout the planning, from the minute we expressed interest, Black Tie was very professional and really made us feel special. Phil was our DJ, and made our night the perfect night to remember! He had great song choices, played requests, and kept everyone on the dance floor all night long! They even accommodated us by letting my bridesmaid sing the first song. Thank you Black Tie for a great evening-both Bill and Phil were great guys, both nice and professional!

  • I cannot possibly express just how wonderful Bill was for our wedding. From the first meeting where we explained our vision, to follow up e-mails and phone calls, to the amazing reception - Bill showed that he has perfected excellence and has exemplary customer service skills.He kept the dance floor packed, consistently had a smile on his face, all while maintaing tact, courtesy and professionalism. Perhaps, what says it best, is that my brother and his fiance immediately booked Black Tie Entertainment after my wedding reception. Bill was simply that good. I would highly recommend Bill and Black Tie Entertainment to anyone.

  • Very nice and flexible to our wants. My only complaint is that there were a few times in the night when Phil (our dj) would be speaking, and it would be hard to hear him, is sounded mumbled and lost in the room. Worked well with the guests and took music requests.

    responded with the following comments.

    Kristin, Sorry to hear that the sound wasn't perfect all night long. It can be difficult in Greystone Castle to project sound down to guest as the speakers have to be placed 12 feet above their heads in the choir loft. Thank you for choosing us and happy to hear all else went well. -Phil

  • I was extremely disappointed in this DJ company! I spent a lot of time discussing my needs with them because I was worried about the music selections. Turns out, I needn't have spent all that time, because Phil just ignored me anyway. I asked for specific things and he didn't do them. I wanted Olivia Newton John, as in the solo singer, not blare Grease all over the venue! If I wanted Grease, I would have specified Grease, plus I said no musicals! Then I wanted a specific song that meant a lot to us, not for a first dance, just to dance to generally. He never played it. Even after he came up to us and asked if there were any last requests. He also couldn't focus lights, he missed the dance floor and blinded me and our guests! My former boss and myself (a former theater lighting designer) were annoyed that we didn't just do it ourselves. Also, as a former audio technician, the quality of the music was terrible- there was too much high end. To top it off, I had declared from the very begi... Read more

    responded with the following comments.

    A mobile DJ speaker system and lights are much different from a permanently installed theater system where the room itself is designed as a great acoustic environment. A banquet hall is not designed this way at all. Our music was kept low during dinner and raised accordingly for open dancing. Since we were right next to the dance floor the volume never got very loud (unless you were dancing right in front of the speaker maybe). We only used 4 party lights and in such a large room I don't see how guests could have been blinded. Furthermore, they were aimed at the dance floor. Your guests had asked for many requests that were on your "do not play list" and these songs were not played. Very late in the night one guest repeatedly asked for a "group dance" song and with your husband right there to hear the request, I gestured if it would be OK and he implied that it would - he even danced to it along with many other guests. I'm sorry this song got played, we usually abide by the grooms inclinations along with the brides - not based on who is paying. Furthermore, many of your guests were incredibly frustrated at the music you had picked out for us to play, had not danced, and were happy to hear that song. Regarding your request for Olivia Newton John, she doesn't have a lot of popular, upbeat dance songs to choose from, Grease (one of her biggest and certainly most well known hits) seemed like an obvious choice. Guess we should have played "Let's Get Physical".

  • BTE did a great job for our wedding a few weeks ago! They kept the dance floor full with great song selections. Bill was extremely attentive during the reception and came up to me (the bride) multiple times to make sure I knew what was going on and to check on how I was enjoying the music. My only complaint was that I did not hear from them until a month before the wedding after I had hired them months earlier. This is a minor complaint, however, when compared to the stellar job they did. Thanks, BTE!!
