  • We had the best time on our wedding night (and so did our guests) which we owe in large part to starlight! They set such a good and fun tone for everyone. Every guest was blown away by them, they played to what the crowd was vibing and really kept the party going. Evans suggestion to include a fifth performer to go on during the bands breaks was also a key element to keeping the energy high the whole night. It was so much fun and they played all our requested music, much of it I know they learned just for us. We are so thankful that they worked so hard to give us the best night. Through all the craziness of Covid, changing venues, changing guest count, and ultimately changing the specific band we worked with, starlight was so flexible and easy to communicate with. Such a joy and pleasure the whole way through and so understanding/accommodating for our last minute changes. Thank you!!!

  • To say that Starlight Orchestra surpassed our expectations is an understatement. They had come highly recommended to us, so I felt comfortable that they were going to be great, but I can't describe how great they were. The entire process leading up to the wedding was easy - Allie had all the logistics down to a science, and Valerie met with us ahead of time to really understand our vibe. The night of our wedding was just incredible. Our dance floor was packed the whole night, the energy brought by the band was incredible. I found myself numerous time just watching their performance, it was so engaging, and I wasn't the only one - the number of compliments we received on the band from guests was tremendous - EVERYONE was in love. Definitely work with Starlight if you have the chance, you will be so happy you did.

    Thank you Abby for the wonderful review!! We appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on Valerie and The Starlight Orchestra! Please email Allie and I photos once you receive them. Our team would love to see them. Evan Tyler - President.

  • I can't say enough terrific things about Evan Tyler, the Rock & Soul Band from Starlight Music. He and his hand picked musicians and vocalists made my son's wedding the absolute most fun and enjoyable event for everyone attending. It was especially memorable as we all celebrated a week before the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut shelter-at-home order was implemented. Everyone danced their hearts out and the selection of music was perfect. There is no need to explore any other group. In addition to being an outstanding vocalist with a dynamic personality, Evan is also very flexible and able to work collaboratively with couples to provide a customized entertainment package rather than something that is typical and boring. Hire them and dance your heart out!

  • The Blake Band was an extremely wonderful asset to our wedding day! The staff was very professional and responded to our calls and emails very quickly when working with them leading up to the wedding. They accommodated all of our requests with no question and learned some new songs for us. They had some great recommendations on our timeline for the evening and certainly bring a ton of experience to keeping a wedding running smoothly. The band leader kept all of our guests up and dancing the entire night and coordinated with the venue seamlessly. Some of the musicians even came onto the dancefloor with the instruments and kept the crowd lively. They helped make it the best night that we will remember forever!! Would recommend this band 100x over!

  • Starlight's "Rock & Soul" had everyone on the dance floor from the beginning to the very end of our wedding. The musicianship was incredible and the singers were absolutely amazing. The energy from the band was contagious and guests came up to us all night long and complimented the band. They were so easy to work with, made great recommendations before the wedding, and stood by their commitments. I highly recommend you hire Starlight and ask for ROCK & SOUL!!

  • 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 :)
