    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?!

    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!”

    Amazing Band

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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,

    “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!

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!!!

    BEST BAND EVER. We received SO many compliments on them. Honestly, we had no idea what to expect. We chose them solely because we loved Denny’s voice and we genuinely had no idea how they would be on the wedding night. Suffice it to say, they exceeded all of our expectations. The entire team was extremely easy to work with. Allie and Evan with Starlight were responsive, kind and organized. When we met Denny for the first time, we just knew we were going to have a great experience. For the ceremony, he sang and played the guitar for the family and wedding party processional. And then the music during cocktail hour and dinner were amazing but once we got on the dance floor – nobody left! Every single person danced all night. It was exactly what we wanted and just perfect! Highly highly recommend!!

    Holy cow! My face still hurts I still can’t stop smiling. Evan, Mike, Allie and the whole White Light band and crew, your team and talent are out of this world!!! Nailed it!! Working with you was the best decision I ever made and opportunity I ever had. our wedding was a real dream come true, a magical night I will never forget.

    Mike, band leader, incredible! Everything was seamless; you made a difficult job look easy. All my guests melted because of your voice. We were all so impressed. Everyone was so touched when you came to the crowd to serenade the couples. Swoon! I will never forget the huge smile on my dads face during “shout.” he was so so happy and that’s all I wanted from the night. The White Light Band looked like they were having so much fun and that resonated in my guests. There was non stop dancing all night which was all I could ask for. Thank you so much, just amazing!

    Evan, starlight music manager, I don’t even know what to say. This has been the best opportunity of my life. The entertainment at my wedding was my biggest priority over everything. You, Mike, and White light really pulled it together more than I could ask for. I had a lot of set backs from other venders during planning and the immediate days before.. you handled everything like a real pro and truly delivered beyond. Not a moment of anxiety or stress from your part. You’re a real pleasure to work with. This was the best time of my life.
    Starlight music, I can’t thank you enough!

    After month of searching for our band ( we literally looked at about 10 bands) we ended up choosing The Blake Band and they were so freaking good, honestly if you come up short on your guest minimum and have these guys we will come and cover our plate they were THAT GOOD. The ENTIRE group was outstanding- please do your self a favor and book them now. Our wedding was 4.27.18 and we have been to about three weddings in NYC so far since then, and people can not stop coming up to us saying how kick @$$ they were. NO one stopped dancing it was AMAZINNG.

    We could not recommend Evan and his band enough! From the second we met them, we knew they weren't your typical cookie cutter band - they are truly one of a kind and blew us away. 2 weeks after our wedding, people are still asking us for the name of our band because they were so great and people keep saying they've never heard a wedding band that was so good. I can't imagine why anyone who heard them at our wedding wouldn't use them -- they are the best of the best!

    Evan and his band Rock & Soul at Starlight Music were absolutely phenomenal at our wedding! Throughout the planning process Evan was very easy to work and responsive to our emails and calls. At our wedding, the band had high energy and sounded amazing. We had a blast at our wedding singing and dancing the night away. Our guests were blown away and we had guests coming up to us during the reception to find out the name of the band! We highly recommend Evan and his band Rock & Soul! Thank you so much - you guys are the best!!

    We have had the pleasure of using Starlight music for all three of our children’s weddings. And our friends are upset that we don’t have more children. They are over the top fabulous and professional and fun. They truly make the wedding celebration even more special. I might have to throw a 70 th for myself just to have them again. The very best and most fun band.
