  • Starlight music was absolutely incredible! The whole band was amazing and our band leader, Mike, was a real pro. We had the most magical day and the band was an integral part of that. They were extraordinarily amazing with every song they played - including during the ceremony and cocktail hour. They really listened to our suggestions and vision and kept the crowd dancing all night. Not only did we thoroughly enjoy every minute of it, but we got so many compliments from our friends and family on how outstanding the band was. We would certainly recommend the group to anyone!! We cannot speak highly enough of not only the performance on the big day, but also the whole process. It was smooth and easy for us, and for such a big, important part of the day, we felt like it was one thing we really never stressed over.

    Thank you so much Caitlin for the amazing review!! White Light and Mike had a great time celebrating with your families at the Jasna Polana. What a magnificent venue it was and our entire team enjoyed working with them as well as you. :) We can't wait to see photos from the wedding.

  • From the moment we had our initial meeting with Starlight, Evan and his team were an absolute pleasure to work with! We originally saw them perform at a friends wedding last year, and knew that we wanted them for ours because they were the best band we had ever seen at a wedding (and we’ve been to quite a few weddings). Evan was always quick to respond to any of my questions, willing to work with us on band size/price, and truly made the process with him and his team so seamless. And man did they deliver - we have friends and family still telling us that our wedding was the most fun they’ve had at a wedding and that the band was beyond exceptional. I highly recommend Starlight, and look forward to seeing them perform at our friends wedding in a few months because if they’re there we know it’ll be a great time!

    Thank you Jillian! Rock & Soul had sooooooo much fun celebrating with you :) Your friends really lost their minds and went crazy, which was so great for us to be a part of.

  • Starlight Music made my daughters wedding a magical evening, everyone was on the dance floor even people that I know don’t dance - we had a blast and the band can do anything and everything you ask if they don’t know it they will learn it. If you want the best band for your event look no further

  • The Blake Band helped make our wedding into an unforgettable party! Denny and the band seamlessly navigated all different genres and styles; they incorporated our specifically requested songs with more wedding "fan favorites" for a blend that kept people dancing all night! They were incredibly accommodating and played some niche wedding songs traditional to my family. They even surprised us by playing my parents' wedding song which made for a really sweet moment. The whole team was lots of fun to work with and were incredibly responsive and helpful from start to finish. We had so many guests asking for their contact info and commenting about how amazing the band was! So happy with our choice!

  • Consummate professionals from beginning to end. Evan and his team held our hand and respected every request we had while at the same time offering friendly advice and pointers based his his past experiences. The price is premium but when you consider the importance of the event you're hiring them for, and the quality of not only the lead up, but the performance itself, it is worth every penny! To be clear, this band made the party! We had an 800+ square foot dance floor that was packed from beginning to end. I may be biased as it was my daughters wedding, but it WAS THE BEST wedding we've ever been to by far, and it was because of this band. They are head and shoulders better than any competitor.

  • This is exactly what we wrote to Starlight Music and the Blake Band as a thank you...enjoy! As Laura and I get back from our honeymoon and are still reflecting back on the best day of our lives, we wanted to thank you and Denny so much for being such a special part of the best day of our lives! We both keep saying that we wish we could do it all over again as guests so we could dance to every song. With that being said, I’m sure Denny and crew saw Laura and I dancing all night long! We couldn’t stay off the dance floor and when we asked Denny at our finals meeting what made greats weddings great, he said it was the couple on the dance floor as much as possible. We tried to live up to that as best we could! All of our guests LOVED the music and we saw and heard that people were dancing that usually don’t dance at weddings! The songs were perfect, the energy was palpable, and the vocals were on fire! From the beautiful ceremony, to the amazing intro and first dance, t... Read more

  • Let’s be real, the demo videos speak for themselves. The Blake Band is incredible. The singers and the musicians are very talented and they put on an amazing show. In our experience, Denny was fun to work with and helpful in creating the night we wanted for ourselves and our guests. He let us rap a surprise performance of “Bust A Move” on stage with the band. He played a medley of California songs in tribute to my home state. The horns players duked it out on the dance floor. The rapper got the crowd pumped. The band never lost steam and the music never stopped. We got the wedding we dreamed of: everyone was on the dance floor all night long. Our guests are still raving about the band.

    Thank you Ashley!!! Everyone in our office is still talking about your awesome Bust a Move performance :)

  • Wow! We honestly could not have imagined just how amazing the Rock & Soul band would be for our wedding. The guests could not stop raving about the music. Evan & Allie made the whole process so enjoyable and I felt like I was in great hands throughout the entire planning process. They truly are professionals who love what they do. So thankful for the staff at Starlight and the Rock & Soul Band for making 8/24/19 so special for us.

    Thank you Annette! We especially loved it when your friends picked you and Mike up for some crowd surfing at the end of the wedding :) Glen Head CC looked AMAZING and it was truly a perfect night!

  • Starlight provided us exceptional music and entertainment for our entire wedding -- from our ceremony to the after party. The band was absolutely exceptional - they learned a few special songs for us (and performed them perfectly), got all 200 of our guests dancing all night, and kept the energy so high for 3 hours straight. I am SO glad that we chose Starlight for our big day -- it would have impossible for them to be any better.

    Thank you Tatiana! Ramon and the Starlight Orchestra all said that your friends never stopped dancing! We always love Cedar Lakes Estate. It was a pleasure sharing in your wedding.

  • All I can say is WOW!! The Blake Band was unbelievable! I have been to a lot of weddings but never to one with a band as great as this one. They were such professionals—Denny and the band completely knew how to read the crowd. The dance floor was full the entire evening—even during dinner service!! There wasn’t one person at the wedding that did not come up to me and tell me how amazing the band was. The wedding did not end until 1 AM but no one left early, and the guests were begging for more!! The only complaint I had from our guests was that their feet were killing them the next morning! Expectations were high but they were exceeded!!

    Thank you Alana! The band members' feet were also hurting by the end of the wedding! HA! The Senate Garage was glorious and it was truly #epic

  • Starlight music company and The Blake Band was amazing beyond words! All night, the tables were empty and the dance floor absolutely jam packed. Song after song guests were saying omg! this band is incredible!!! Old or young, people did not get off the dance floor. While the decorations were stunning, and the energy and love was fabulous, at the bottom line - it’s truly the band that is the single most important element of the entire wedding(other than the couple!). So having a great wedding is easy - Just hire this band. They so nailed it and as promised...they blew the roof off!

    Awww! Thank you so much Lynn for the wonderful review! Denny and the Blake Band loved working with everyone. It was our pleasure to share in the wedding and be part of the team that made it all happen :)

  • My husband and I both love music, and we have experienced the amazing impact a great band can have on the energy of a wedding. We were super picky when looking for a band for our big day, and are SO HAPPY that we found Starlight Music. From the moment we met Evan, we could tell we were working with the real deal. One huge thing for us was that, unlike most places, their video demos were not auto-tuned or over-produced. It was clear these performers could sing in real life—not just after heavy editing—and the range of styles they cover was impressive. We ended up hiring the Rock and Soul band, and were able to customize it a bit to fit the style we were going for (gotta love a trumpet!). They were collaborative when we decided to bring in a ringer to lead the band for the hora, and when we asked them to learn a specific rendition of our first dance song. On the day of the wedding we were blown away. The energy was high, the musicianship was second to none, and the singers were AMAZI... Read more

  • We had such a fantastic experience working with Starlight Music! From the very first meeting they were so wonderful about making us feel totally confident in their abilities to bring our dream wedding night to life! We watched several of their bands and ultimately decided to hire White Light as our wedding band. It was one of the best decisions we made! Mike and his band wowed us on every level. Personally, Mike was so friendly to work with. We got to meet with him before the wedding and talked everything through. We left feeling totally confident that they knew exactly what we were looking for, which was to make sure people danced as much as possible. And they sure did! The band completely felt the vibe of the guests the whole night. They fed off of their energy and played songs that kept everyone on the dance floor. Some members of the group even got onto the floor and danced and sang along with the guests, which added to the excitement. My husband and I did not stop dancing! T... Read more

  • We used the White Light band through Starlight music and can’t recommend them enough! From the beginning? Evan and Allie answered our many emails and questions quickly and with enthusiasm! They were so helpful during the whole process and mike the band leader made sure our requests were heard. During our wedding, We had so many people come up to us to ask for the bands name and our guests were dancing all night long! I believe the band is one of the most important parts of the wedding night and We couldn’t have asked for a better time.

    Hi Danielle! Thank you so much for your kind words and for letting us be a part of your amazing party. Mike and White Light had a fantastic timing playing your wedding at Glen Island Harbour Club! All the best to you and Lloyd for a lifetime of happiness!
