  • The Starlight Orchestra (part of Starlight music) was absolutely incredible!! They put on an outstanding performance and our friends and family were blown away. Everyone is still talking about them. The energy in the room was electric and the dance floor was packed from beginning to end. Ramon (the band leader) was such a joy to work with and he really listened to everything we requested. He was also great at reading the crowd. We really can't thank him and the band enough. This band is stellar and deserves to be in it's own league. The musicians are top-notch professionals. We highly recommend them especially for anyone who loves music and an energetic party.

  • The Blake Band absolutely made our wedding day with their rock star performance. I cannot recommend this band enough! They had the crowd on the dance floor the entire night and played all of the songs we wanted - Banger after banger! EVERYONE from our wedding is commenting that the Blake Band was the best wedding band they have ever heard! They catered to the crowd - both young & old. I've had several people asking for their contact information to book their next event. We had an incredible experience working with the Starlight Team. Denny remembered all of the songs and details from our finals meeting. Allie in the office is very responsive, helpful & professional. Evan gave us a great introduction, answered questions and helped us with booking. We couldn't be happier with our experience --they exceeded our expectations in every way! Thank you to the entire starlight team for an unforgettable night. Book with them today!!!

  • Where do we even begin. Corey and I simply had the best night of our lives and that is in large part because of Evan and his amazingly talented Rock & Soul band. They so far exceeded our expectations of what the night would be. They blew us away with their set list - one song was better than the next. The run of show was on point, and the energy level was absolutely incredible. All we heard all night and all day after was that the band was amazing. Literally, that was our biggest takeaway. So thank you thank you thank you, for absolutely everything. It was such a pleasure working with them and I hope there will be many more events & weddings where we can party at together again.

  • We had our wedding Labor Day wkend 2018 and this band was amazing! We used Blake band who were unbelievable. Everyone kept on telling us how amazing the band was. Denny was such a great band leader and when we met with a couple of weeks before to create the music list, he knew exactly what we wanted and made it so easy. We also worked with Allie throughout the process and she was incredibly! So responsive and helpful with eveythjng we had to fill out and put together. I recommend this band to anyone! Starlight is great and also has different levels of band sizes as well, all are great. Thanks Alie, Denny and starlight music for making our wedding so much fun!

  • From the ceremony to the cocktail hour and from start to finish of the party it was not only seamless but flawless. EVERYONE! Kept telling us how amazing you guys were and to quote my friend exactly she said, “it was the first time at a wedding where I didn’t feel like the band played 7 songs and then the wedding was over. Idk how you guys planned the flow/structure but it was perfect. The band was incredible. Amazing playlist. “ You were truly unbelievable and we couldn’t have imagined a more wild and well done party. Not only was the party and meetings to prep done so well and at all times we knew we were in good hands but you helped us plan our first dance so well. We were set up for dance lessons and really nailed a first song and dance down with guidance and on the night of we rocked it!

    Thank you Shelby! Your wedding at Beachpoint was so fantastic! Rock & Soul really enjoyed sharing in it with you. The outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour were lovely and your guests never left the dance floor. What a magical evening!

  • We selected Starlight’s Rock & Soul for our wedding and they were phenomenal! The band had everyone out of their seats on the dance floor the whole night. Guests of all ages were raving about the quality of the music and variety... Sinatra, The Bee Gees, Pitbull, Walk the Moon, & more. It was a pleasure to work with Evan and Allie on logistics. Starlight is unique with only four bands, and we felt that we received a lot of attention. The company is highly professional and not only established a clear timeline of the night but also honored all our song requests. Furthermore, our wedding coordinator for the evening disappeared on us and ran errands for caterer instead, and we were relieved that Evan kept things moving despite their absence. We found Evan to be extremely knowledgeable on weddings and events. He knew a lot about outdoor events and the band was prepared to perform all over the property for the ceremony and cocktail hour as well as under a tent. We also never got... Read more

  • We LOVED working Starlight, it was very clear that everyone we worked with both in the band and in the office really enjoys their jobs and are very good at them! Extremely talented individuals that work together well & were a pleasure to have at our wedding. Evan, Denny & Allie helped us customize our wedding to suit us. I am from NJ & my husband is from Puerto Rico, they did an excellent job in balancing the music & had everyone on their feet the whole time. We had a non-traditional unforgettable ceremony thanks to Denny! It’s been a month & I am still getting rave reviews from all of our guests. I would give them 10/5 stars if possible. Incredibly professional, adaptable & talented group. I wish I could order the soundtrack of the wedding!!!

  • Picking a band was one of the most stressful parts of the wedding planning process. Every review we looked at gave so many different bands five stars so it really became difficult to tell which ones were the true stand outs. While I'm obviously now part of the problem by giving a five star review, I can confidently say The Blake Band and Starlight music earned every star and then some. They are the polar opposite of a cheesy wedding band. 6 musicians, 6 singers, all just as if not more talented then the next. Their team and band leader Denny (who is the man) work with you to make sure you get the exact show you're looking for. They played the songs we wanted to hear when we wanted to hear them, they read the room perfectly, and brought the house down with not one, but two encores. 90's pop, biggie, perfect dinner background jams, the best version of Bruce you can imagine, and everything in between. These guys do it all and if you book them I can guarantee that your wedding guests will ... Read more

  • BEST BAND EVER. We received SO many compliments on them. Honestly, we had no idea what to expect. We chose them solely because we loved Denny’s voice and we genuinely had no idea how they would be on the wedding night. Suffice it to say, they exceeded all of our expectations. The entire team was extremely easy to work with. Allie and Evan with Starlight were responsive, kind and organized. When we met Denny for the first time, we just knew we were going to have a great experience. For the ceremony, he sang and played the guitar for the family and wedding party processional. And then the music during cocktail hour and dinner were amazing but once we got on the dance floor – nobody left! Every single person danced all night. It was exactly what we wanted and just perfect! Highly highly recommend!!

  • Holy cow! My face still hurts I still can’t stop smiling. Evan, Mike, Allie and the whole White Light band and crew, your team and talent are out of this world!!! Nailed it!! Working with you was the best decision I ever made and opportunity I ever had. our wedding was a real dream come true, a magical night I will never forget. Mike, band leader, incredible! Everything was seamless; you made a difficult job look easy. All my guests melted because of your voice. We were all so impressed. Everyone was so touched when you came to the crowd to serenade the couples. Swoon! I will never forget the huge smile on my dads face during “shout.” he was so so happy and that’s all I wanted from the night. The White Light Band looked like they were having so much fun and that resonated in my guests. There was non stop dancing all night which was all I could ask for. Thank you so much, just amazing! Evan, starlight music manager, I don’t even know what to say. This has been the best ... Read more

  • After month of searching for our band ( we literally looked at about 10 bands) we ended up choosing The Blake Band and they were so freaking good, honestly if you come up short on your guest minimum and have these guys we will come and cover our plate they were THAT GOOD. The ENTIRE group was outstanding- please do your self a favor and book them now. Our wedding was 4.27.18 and we have been to about three weddings in NYC so far since then, and people can not stop coming up to us saying how kick @$$ they were. NO one stopped dancing it was AMAZINNG.
