Made The Night!
We had such a fantastic experience working with Starlight Music! From the very first meeting they were so wonderful about making us feel totally confident in their abilities to bring our dream wedding night to life! We watched several of their bands and ultimately decided to hire White Light as our wedding band. It was one of the best decisions we made!Sent on 06/07/2019
Mike and his band wowed us on every level. Personally, Mike was so friendly to work with. We got to meet with him before the wedding and talked everything through. We left feeling totally confident that they knew exactly what we were looking for, which was to make sure people danced as much as possible. And they sure did!
The band completely felt the vibe of the guests the whole night. They fed off of their energy and played songs that kept everyone on the dance floor. Some members of the group even got onto the floor and danced and sang along with the guests, which added to the excitement. My husband and I did not stop dancing! They played great music and the singers were all so incredibly talented. Their vocals blew us away!
We have not stopped hearing compliments from our family and friends about how amazing the music was. Everyone has raved about what a great night it was and that was definitely in large part to the band. They were certainly worth every penny for us!
Starlight Music's reply:Hi Megan! Everyone at Starlight Music appreciates you taking the time to write such a wonderful review for White Light! Mike and the band loved playing at such a unique venue and partying with your guests all night! Thank you for having us! Evan Tyler - President
Annette · Married on 08/24/2019
Wow! We honestly could not have imagined just how amazing the Rock & Soul band would be for our wedding. The guests could not stop raving about the music. Evan & Allie made the whole process so enjoyable and I felt like I was in great hands throughout the entire planning process. They truly are professionals who love what they do. So thankful for the staff at Starlight and the Rock & Soul Band for making 8/24/19 so special for us.Sent on 08/27/2019
Starlight Music's reply:Thank you Annette! We especially loved it when your friends picked you and Mike up for some crowd surfing at the end of the wedding :) Glen Head CC looked AMAZING and it was truly a perfect night!

Best choice of our wedding!
Starlight provided us exceptional music and entertainment for our entire wedding -- from our ceremony to the after party.Sent on 09/04/2019
The band was absolutely exceptional - they learned a few special songs for us (and performed them perfectly), got all 200 of our guests dancing all night, and kept the energy so high for 3 hours straight. I am SO glad that we chose Starlight for our big day -- it would have impossible for them to be any better.
Starlight Music's reply:Thank you Tatiana! Ramon and the Starlight Orchestra all said that your friends never stopped dancing! We always love Cedar Lakes Estate. It was a pleasure sharing in your wedding.
Alana · Married on 08/17/2019
Parent of bride
All I can say is WOW!! The Blake Band was unbelievable! I have been to a lot of weddings but never to one with a band as great as this one. They were such professionals—Denny and the band completely knew how to read the crowd. The dance floor was full the entire evening—even during dinner service!! There wasn’t one person at the wedding that did not come up to me and tell me how amazing the band was. The wedding did not end until 1 AM but no one left early, and the guests were begging for more!! The only complaint I had from our guests was that their feet were killing them the next morning!Sent on 06/24/2019
Expectations were high but they were exceeded!!
Starlight Music's reply:Thank you Alana! The band members' feet were also hurting by the end of the wedding! HA! The Senate Garage was glorious and it was truly #epic
Lynn · Married on 07/20/2019
Best wedding band ever- all 200 guests exactly said this!
Starlight music company and The Blake Band was amazing beyond words! All night, the tables were empty and the dance floor absolutely jam packed. Song after song guests were saying omg! this band is incredible!!! Old or young, people did not get off the dance floor.Sent on 07/24/2019
While the decorations were stunning, and the energy and love was fabulous, at the bottom line - it’s truly the band that is the single most important element of the entire wedding(other than the couple!). So having a great wedding is easy - Just hire this band. They so nailed it and as promised...they blew the roof off!
Starlight Music's reply:Awww! Thank you so much Lynn for the wonderful review! Denny and the Blake Band loved working with everyone. It was our pleasure to share in the wedding and be part of the team that made it all happen :)
Dorie Solomon · Married on 05/26/2019
Honestly, the most incredible band we’ve ever experienced. We vetted out many options before deciding on starlight and we absolutely couldn’t be happier. As the bride, I think more people came up to to compliment me on the band that day than anything else. They just did a fantastic job and made the event such a wonderful experience. Thank you guys so much!!Sent on 06/09/2019
Starlight Music's reply:Thank you Dorie! Ramon and The Starlight Orchestra truly enjoyed sharing in your wedding at The Plaza Hotel. Everything about the day was magnificent and the few photos I saw were fantastic. Evan Tyler - Starlight Music
Michaela · Married on 05/18/2019
Above and beyond!
I had the Blake Band play at my wedding and I have nothing but positive feedback for them. We were really specific in our vision-from the type of music to even asking for an unplugged performance during the entres-and Denny and the band delivered on every one of them. The energy was great for the duration of the reception and we got a lot of compliments after. So glad we worked with them!Sent on 06/06/2019
Starlight Music's reply:Thank you Michaela!! The band enjoyed the unplugged dinner set too:) We are so glad that you enjoyed The Blake Band.

The best of the best
Picking a band was one of the most important decisions we had to make for your wedding. Our primary source was reading reviews; it was hard for us to really determine quality sifting through reviews. I can say with 100% honesty, Starlight music deserves 5 stars and more, in all areas. Your search can end here. We had multiple people coming up to us during and after the wedding raving "this is the best wedding band we have ever seen." From start to finish, Starlight Music was so incredible and professional to work with. From our first meeting, Evan took the time to explain the process and answer all of our questions (and we had a lot). We ended up working with the Blake band; Allie and Denny were so organized and open to all our requests. They really aspired to make a custom experience that was completely us. During the wedding, we had people up and dancing who never ever dance. Nobody wanted the party to end - our guests were chanting for an encore after the last song! They really made our wedding day unforgettable and I hope to see them again at a friends wedding.Sent on 06/14/2019
Starlight Music's reply:Thank you Aarati for the AMAZING review! Denny and The Blake Band appreciate you taking the time to write everything. Allie and I enjoyed working with you both to make sure you had the wedding of your dreams. Evan Tyler - President

Words can’t describe how amazing Rock and Soul was on our wedding night. The only complaint is that the dance floor wasn’t big enough! That’s just to show how much fun our guests were having, and my now husband and I are so happy withy he outcome. We had the best night of our lives, they at the all so talented and listened to all of our requests. Thanks so much for th best night of our lives!Sent on 05/20/2019
Starlight Music's reply:Thank you Erica! Rock & Soul had way too fun partying with you both and your wild friends! Your ceremony could not have been more perfect....dream weather for Tappan Hill!

Rock & Soul MADE our wedding
I just got married at 26 Bridge in DUMBO, Brooklyn last week and our band was Rock & Soul from Starlight music. My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Evan (the owner of the company) and the band. Where do I being?!Sent on 12/13/2018
Let’s start with Evan: He is a complete professional at what he does and runs an amazing business. Plus, he is fun! He really GOT what we wanted and executed on it. He was such a pleasure to work with and made everything easy. We also worked with Allie, one of their producers, during the planning process. She is such a doll and super organized. Overall, they were on top of their game.
Now let’s talk about the band: We researched and went to see a lot of bands, but once we met with Evan and saw/listened to Rock & Soul, there was no question – we had to have them. It was HANDS DOWN the best decision we made with the wedding. They took the party to a whole new level – their energy is contagious. Each musician and vocalist are super talented. With a lot of other bands, you have 1-2 great vocalists, then everyone else is ok. That is not the case with Rock & Soul – they are ALL amazing. They even learned new songs that we requested. For example, we chose “Always Remember Us This Way” from A Star is Born for our first dance and one of the female vocalists learned it and sang it BEAUTIFULLY. Evan was the lead and rocked it! He was also the DJ during breaks AND the emcee. He amazes me. Love that guy. We also want to mention Denny..he is actually the guitarist and lead vocalist of one of Starlight’s other bands called Blake Band but agreed to play with Rock & Soul at our wedding because he was available. We were fan girling on him hard after hearing his voice during our consultation meeting. He sounds like a mixture of Rod Stewart, Jack Johnson and whatever the coolest guy alive sounds like.
The consistent feedback we’ve heard from all of our guests – “WOW!! Your band was incredible! Seriously, they were the best band we’ve ever seen at a wedding!”
Jamie · Married on 12/02/2018
Rock & Soul (from Starlight Music) is the most unbelievable band - and had the wedding up and dancing!!! We had comment and after comment that our band was amazing. We had loved when we saw you at our friend's wedding - but you truly exceeded our expectations.Sent on 12/06/2018
You were also incredibly professional to work with. Your team was organized and quick to answer any questions we had. I did not have to worry about the band for one second during this process.
When planning our wedding, having great music was a top priority....and we definitely had incredible live music!! We will 100% recommend Rock&Soul to anyone looking for a band for any occasion.

Guests still haven't stopped commenting
We were fortunate to have the Blake Band from Starlight Music play at our wedding. From start to finish, the process was personalized and organized. Evan from Starlight Music sat with us at our first meeting to discuss our vision and music taste. He spent quality time to ensure our vision could come to fruition. They were able to meet at a time that was convenient for us, were responsive via email, and had a detailed process. In addition, Allie facilitated the planning process, had prompt communication, and was a pleasure to work with. Starlight Music and the Blake Band coordinated everything with our event planner & venue, making it stress-free for us. Because they are an entertainment company, they have all the equipment they need. No additional equipment was required on our end for their performance. Our meeting with Denny was great- he ensured that we were all on the same page, paid attention to the details (timelines, name pronunciation, song selections, etc), and had such positive energy.Sent on 11/22/2018
On wedding day, set up was smooth and organized as planned. The performance was amazing. Our guests still have not stopped commenting on how great the music was. They've said repeatedly that this is the best band they've ever heard at a wedding. The flow of music was continuous, song selection was on point, and there were no awkward moments of silence. While the band had their meals, Denny killed it with just his guitar and a microphone. The band read the energy of the crowd, engaged with the audience and made sure everyone had a great time. They're not your average wedding band, but rather a group of true professionals/performers. We would highly recommend them to any couple who cares about having fantastic music and a great time.

Most Amazing Band
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.Sent on 11/18/2018
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.
Erica · Married on 11/10/2018
Best band out there!
We cannot say enough great things about Starlight Music and our band Rock and Soul. Evan truly understood what my husband and I were looking for and made our planning process from the beginning seamless and easy as well as enjoyable. Last weekend was the best weekend of our lives and we cannot thank Rock and Soul enough for making the party! From the ceremony music - which sounded beautiful, to the cocktail hour trio which was the perfect fit and finally to the reception - where you they absolutely killed it - we are so happy and grateful that we them there. Rock and Soul did exactly what we asked for and all week we have been consistently hearing from our friends and family how incredible the band was and how the dance floor was going all-night long, as well as people asking where we found Starlight Music and where they can hire them for their own events.Sent on 11/18/2018
From the bottom of our hearts, we are so happy we found Starlight Music and loved every second of working with them.
Thank you again for helping make the best night of our lives! We hope to see you again soon!

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.Sent on 06/12/2017
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.
Starlight Music's reply:Thank you Alex and Corey. Your friends were just too much fun! Rock & Soul had such an awesome time partying with you.
Katie · Married on 10/20/2018
Over the Top experience!
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.Sent on 11/23/2018
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!!!

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,Sent on 09/30/2018
“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!
Starlight Music's reply: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!
Jaclyn · Married on 09/15/2018
Such a fun Band!
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!Sent on 10/24/2018
Caroline · Married on 09/01/2018
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.Sent on 09/06/2018
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 the impression that Starlight was trying to nickel and dime us... While bands in the NY area are expensive, everything was included and Starlight’s overtime pricing was more reasonable than other entertainment companies. I’ve heard negative comments from my friends about last minute add-ons for expensive stages from Hank Lane, and I was glad that Evan talked to us well ahead of time about everything we would need and never tried to charge us last minute.
Overall, we are so glad we worked with Starlight and that Rock & Soul was available to perform at our wedding.
Starlight Music's reply:Thank you Caroline for that amazing review! The wedding was so much fun and your home was INCREDIBLE! We can't wait to see photos :)

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!!!Sent on 09/21/2018

Doug · Married on 07/14/2018
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 be talking about them for weeks to come, I know ours have been!Sent on 08/12/2018
