We booked Prime Time for our upcoming wedding, and we are soooo excited!!!! We saw 2 of their showcases before making our decision and were blown away both times by how awesome their talent, energy, and performance was. They even took the time to speak with us after the showcase and answer all of our questions. I know Prime Time is going to blow our guests away. We also delt with Alana Shore at WTA in booking the band and she was so professional, kind, and helpful. Would highly recommend the entire agency!!
We have chosen Black Tie to be our wedding band! We couldn't be more thrilled and happy with our selection! The band members are so energetic, caring, excited, and personable! We were able to see them perform at a showcase, and it was awesome. After the showcase the band sat down with us and discussed any concerns and questions we had about booking a band and with booking so far in advance! The agency is very responsive and helpful and you will work directly with a sales representative. Ours was Brian, he is the best! WTA also offers other services such as photography and videography, however, we only selected a band as we had already signed with a videographer and photographer! Check WTA out! They support PA, MD, DC, and VA! You won't regret it!
Will and the entire Encore band is AMAZING. They performed at my sister's wedding 3 years ago and it was no question whether or not we would have them play at ours. They listened to every request we had, and even though we didn't have a DJ, played some songs electrically for us because they are favorites.
Will called me a few nights before my wedding to get all the final details, and he listened to everything I said. He got the party started and kept it going all night long! All of my guests were up out of their seats and on the dance floor the whole night! Every time he was about the change the tempo or put on a guest request, he checked with me and my husband. I am just sad that I'm the last wedding in my family because I would love to party with them again!
Two of our close friends had Onyx play at their weddings and we knew we had to hire them for ours - they were so fantastic. Onyx played at our wedding last night and we definitely made the right choice. We had the most AMAZING night. Everyone had a blast and the dance floor was full from start to finish. The singers all got down on the dance floor with our guests and they made sure everyone was having the best time ever. Pre-wedding communication was easy and David (their band manager) took the time to talk through all the details with us to make sure everything was perfect on the day of. I can't say enough good things about Onyx.
Wow! Words can't explain how incredible David Cohen and the team from Washington Talent and Onyx are. They truly helped make our wedding the most magical and special night of our lives. From the first time that we saw Onyx play in their studio, to the professionalism exhibited by Bob Mills our Event Consultant, to coordinating with our vendors and being adaptable to the many "out-of-the-box" requests that we had, our experience with Washington Talent was one that we will never forget! David and his band are true masters and professionals in their craft and we couldn't have hoped for a more perfect evening filled with more beautiful music!
I worked with two groups from Washington Talent Agency, a string trio for our ceremony (led by Fred Lieder), and Dynasty DJs (Carroll and Zack Higgins) for the reception. Fred's trio did a fantastic job with the music for the ceremony. I had chills as I came down the aisle to my favorite piece of music from the movie "Shakespeare in Love." I also loved the trio's variations on top 40 pop tunes as guests were being seated. During cocktail hour and the reception, Carroll and Zack Higgins from Dynasty DJs took over. They did a great job setting up the space so that the music kept guests entertained, but it wasn't so loud that my father (who has a hearing issue) was driven from the room. The ambient level of music was great for dancing, but not so loud that people couldn't engage in conversation. A major feat considering the space was a marble hall in a museum! Carroll and Zack were very attentive, they took requests and double checked with me if there was anything that might have been a "no." Everyone had a great time dancing and I loved Carroll's singing. He sang "Can't Help Falling in Love" by Elvis Presley as the last song of the night and everyone was slow dancing on the floor (not to mention singing along). It was great (dare I say epic?)! It was a wonderful time and I loved working with everyone from WTA. I would do it again in a heart beat. Carroll and Zack, you all are the best! Thank you for making my wedding reception so wonderful!
And Fred- thank you for your marvelous skills during the ceremony. I had guests asking me about the musical selections and everyone raved about how beautiful the music was. So thank you for making the ceremony a fairy tale moment for me, my husband, and all of our friends and family.
We booked the band millenium for our wedding in sept. We went and saw a handful of bands at Washington talent and just we're drawn to millenium from the second we saw their performance. The lead singer, Travis, did a great job at listening to what we wanted. He called us 1-2 weeks before our event to go through all the details. We also hired Travis for our ceremony to sing acoustically and he did an outstanding job. We requested come away with me by Norah jones and he extended the song so it took the wedding party long enough to walk down the isle. The reception was outstanding we can't say that enough. From the second the reception started everyone was on the dance floor and then when the event ended at 11:30 people were still dancing. They kept everyone on their feet for the entire night and made sure everyone got up and danced!!! We would love to go back to this night just because the entertainment was just so amazing!!! Thank you millenium for doing such a great great job.
If I could give Black Tie a 10 I would give them a 10. I cannot say enough about this band. My fiance and I were nervous when we booked them because we had never seen them live and we just based it off of their online video. We figured they would never be as good as the video promoting them, but we couldn't have been more wrong. They were AMAZING. They didn't take a single break in an hour. There were so many people on the dance floor that my aunt said "The only mistake you made at this wedding is not getting a bigger dance floor".
It was really important that our specialty songs be songs that really meant something to us. The band learned all of those songs and even let my brother play harmonica with them for our first dance. They are worth every penny. Book them if they're available!
Washington Talent Agency as a whole was extremely easy to work with, as was DJ Andy in particular. In the weeks/days leading up to the wedding, the company was extremely flexible with changes we wanted to make to our contract, and they were always communicative and willing to work to meet our needs. In terms of the actual DJ, DJ Andy called me several times to discuss what I wanted out of him for the wedding, and he did exactly everything I asked of him. I appreciate how flexible he was on the day of my wedding, and he even dealt with a loose cannon relative of mine with class (Andy, if you're reading this, I truly apologize for that). I would absolutely recommend this company and this DJ to anyone considering hiring them.
Onyx was amazing! They were very friendly throughout the entire process and were flexible to our needs on the day of the wedding. Our dinner was in a separate location than the dance floor, and they even took a couple of members of the band and played during dinner. They were very good at responding to the mood of the wedding. And the band was really great! All around 5 stars.
We hired Millennium to play at our wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club and they were phenomenal. Hands down, the most compliments I received from guests were about the band. From the songs they played to how involved they were with the guests (including dancing with my 88-year-old grandmother!), they were incredible and absolutely made our night the best night ever. We had a couple band members playing/singing acoustic during dinner which was lovely background music and then the full band set up in the tavern for dancing from 8pm - 11pm. They sang until the very last second and kept the energy on the dance floor up the entire time. Travis was so great to work with on details beforehand. I am extremely detail-oriented and he captured everything down to exact start and stop times for specific dances. He was very professional and offered little tips here and there from his experience that worked really well. I would recommend this band to anyone looking to have a great time at their wedding!
Black tie was amazing!! Everyone was dancing the entire time. Even while they were serving dinner we were still dancing! Chuck and Strickland were great to work with. Best part is they play continuous music meaning they don't take breaks. When you factor that in they are reasonably priced for being a top notch band. They dance and have the best voices and have such high energy!!
Through this agency, you can book a fantastic band called "Millenium". After viewing the videos, there was no question that this was our band. They are so versatile and the lead singers really compliment each other. The wedding venue had to be changed at the last minute due to Derecho 2012. After a stressful situation, we were ready to party. They were amazing and kept playing one song after the other. All of our guests said this was the best wedding band they had ever experienced. Thank you Millenium for making this the best wedding day ever!
Carroll & Zack Higgins (The Dynasty DJ's) were really great! We hired them through Washington Talent to DJ our wedding reception and they also did the uplighting for the venue (Old Ebbitt Grill). Carroll was prompt in his correspondence and was helpful with music suggestions. We were able to make a go by song list but they are also able to read the crowd and make song changes to keep the crowd pleased. Carroll was familiar with the venue and ensured that the speakers were set up to project the sound optimally. The lighting was BEAUTIFUL and really made for the perfect ambiance. They even set up some extra lights to bring out the dance floor which was an awesome added touch. Carroll played the drums along with the music which was so cool! Both Carroll and Zack were super professional and were great facilitating timeline events, etc. Zack made sure to touch base through the night to ensure everything was perfect. I would HIGHLY recommend them for any reception or party that you are throwing. They were so fun to work with.
We worked with Shana Lang at Washington Talent -- she was excellent! Shana helped us contract with our band, Millenium, and they were wonderful! Honestly, our guests raved about the band and were on the dance floor all night. Two members of the band also provided music for the ceremony and cocktail hour, which was perfect. I highly recommend Washington Talent Agency.
Marc Wilner was the DJ at our wedding reception this September. It’s really difficult to describe how good he is at his job – the event ran so smoothly and was just so much fun, largely thanks to Marc’s work as DJ/emcee. Guests of all ages were on the dance floor the entire night. Marc helped us put together the order of events for the evening – and everything went as planned and the reception was totally-worry free. He is very professional and friendly, and so many guests complimented us on our (Marc’s!) music choices. His experience was clear and SO appreciated.
