    Wonderful Venue - Highly Recommend

    I can't speak highly enough of Tom Nicchi and the staff at the State room. My daughter's wedding was there this past weekend and it went beyond our expectations. They were highly organized and helped with planning the perfect wedding reception every step of the way. The staff are very friendly and extremely professional. The food is like no other. So fresh and delicious. Our guests raved about their appetizers and entrees. Tom was with us from the beginning of the day until the end. Check out their website and then call and arrange a visit to view the beauty of the architecture and decor. There is no venue in the Capital Region that compares to the State Room.

    Amazing Time Had By ALL!!!!!!!!

    They say 3 things make a wedding. The Music, food, and bar. When is comes to Music Man Entertainment Dedicated, Passionate, and Hardworking,are just some of the words that describe this company. We have a very opinionated family of Irish and Italians and everyone loved him. The dance floor was packed to the point the photographers were squeezing past people to take pictures. Mike put his reputation on the line to make sure to deliver a wedding that people will take about for ages. No matter the generation or genre Mike had everyone smiling and busting a move. Also, when it comes to availability this man is reachable by phone, text, email. He is a prime example of what hospitality is supposed to be. If Mike is you DJ then you should have nothing to worry about!
