Onyx Artists - The Speakeasies
The Speakeasies were absolutely incredible for our wedding reception in Carmel-by-the Sea. They were incredibly talented, super versatile, and made our entire day so extra special. We would definitely recommend hiring this band for your special event.Sent on 01/01/2020

Gets the party started
The Speakeasies absolutely blew our minds! Everything from start to finish was so simple and thorough and Josh and Marie from ONYX were so sweet and professional every step of the way.Sent on 12/31/2019
From the initial emails figuring out what the best options were for us- to talking us through all of the questions we had along the way and always being so quick to respond to all of our emails/texts- I’d absolutely recommend ONYX Artists for any event you need a live band for.
We had them play for both a seated dinner portion and a dance set and they were both perfect. Classy and not too loud when we needed it mellow and so fun when everyone got on the dance floor. We got so many compliments and we’ve just been looking for any excuse to hire them again :)
