    If you want to dance all night...this is your band!

    Night Sage was an INCREDIBLE group of musicians who made our night the greatest party! We received countless numbers of compliments from our wedding guests asking who our band was etc.! My husband and I LOVE a live band so when choosing a band for our wedding we were picky...right off the bat Jay was accommodating and so easy to work with. From the ceremony to the reception Night Sage brought incredible energy and completely outdid themselves! If you are looking for a wedding band, do not look anywhere else!

    Made our Night!

    We could not have asked for a better group of musicians to be at our wedding. From our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception Night Sage completely out did themselves. We enjoyed every moment of our wedding thanks to their energy and talent! Jay was so easy to work with and helped to make sure our night went exactly how we wanted! We can not wait to go watch them play again and would recommend them to anyone who wants there wedding to feel like a party!

    Professional and attentive DJ/MC!

    I worked with Jay at Blue Hill Farm B&B in Waterford, VA on June 1. I was the lead planner for this wedding and appreciated Jay's timely arrival, professional demeanor and appearance, and attentiveness to the timeline. He was very approachable throughout the night. Would highly recommend him for DJ/MC services in the DMV area!

    Xen Live's reply:

    Thanks so much Maria! It was a pleasure working with you too. Hope to work with you again soon.
    Jay
