We are the original Starry Night providing your personal soundtrack since 1988.

Each party is unique.

We let the music speak for itself.

Our disc jockeys maintain complete and absolute respect for your musical tastes.

We play pure music without any gimmicks.
Great music should be the inspiration.

We work very closely with each client to create an individualized song list, and to insure that your party reflects your personal style and musical tastes,
not ours.

We believe in discreet and tasteful use of the microphone for any announcements,
or none at all if you prefer

because music has its own voice. Read less

Carol was amazing, our guests danced all night! She listened to us and got a sense of the vibe we wanted for our wedding and came up with a great mix of Spanish, American, oldies and contemporary music. She was also an excellent M.C., keeping things on track without ever rushing.

Carol was the DJ for my wedding at the Wainwright House and she was amazing. I'm from Argentina and my husband is Canadian, so we needed someone that could seamlessly transition from Latin music to dance hits, (without the cheesy "Celebrate Good Times" songs). Carol nailed it - and we didn't make it easy. We had her transition from a tango to the Hora in such a way that everyone kept dancing. In fact, the dancing never stopped.
Her husband, Beledo, was the guitarist for the ceremony and cocktail hour, and he was equally outstanding. I received so many compliments for his playing, (which is silly because he's the artist, not me!) Beledo's music created a relaxed mood in our open-air cocktail hour.
I'm a picky person, but Carol and Beledo graciously handled all of my requests. Trust them to do their jobs and they'll exceed expectations.

My husband and I were blessed to have Carol Moore perform during our wedding reception. Carol is a warm and caring individual. We were instantly attracted to her down to earth style and knew right away that we wanted her to be our DJ. Carol is truly focused on the couple and we depended on her input for musical and reception ideas. Trying to select songs that would appeal to a very culturally diverse group could have been daunting but Carol made it work seamlessly. We were also fortunate to have her husband Beledo play both guitar and piano during our cocktail hour. The music flow was amazing from start to finish and everyone was on the dance floor throughout the night. Our friends and family had nothing but great things to say about how much they enjoyed the music. Two thumbs up for Carol and Beledo. (Helen and Jim, Riverside Church, 05.03.14)

Helen and Jim,

It was an honor to play for you both and your very diverse guests - my favorite parties! That is the beauty of New York, the mixture of cultures with such joy! Riverside Church is so beautiful and you both were a delight to play for and work with! Many thanks for everything and we hope to see you both again one day. Warmest regards, Carol and Beledo

Carol was amazing! She was the easiest and most fun vendor to work with and made the process so smooth and easy from the beginning to end. On our wedding day, she was there very early and helped calm my nerves beforehand. During the party, she rocked! The dance floor was packed non stop. Not only did she respect and play our favorites from our song list, she also added great songs we hadn't thought of that really worked perfectly. Her announcements were articulate and with a perfect energy, not like the typical shouting dj. All in all, it was the most fun night of our lives and the music was a huge part of that. We are still receiving raves about the music from our friends and family. Highly recommend!

Carol and Beledo were unbelievable to work with. Carol walked us through every step of the music process and kept our guests dancing all night. I danced my entire wedding and was so happy to say that I am one of few brides who really had the opportunity to dance the night away.

All formal details were handled prior to the wedding as per Carol's request so I would have nothing to worry about. She was bale to find even the most unique pieces we requested as our wedding had a fair amount of Soca, which is not the most common style of music.

Cocktail hour was elegant and relaxed with the musical styling of Beledo which helped complete our Old Hollywood theme.

This is a terribly long overdue review (and thank you) for the absolutely fantastic job Marla did at our wedding reception on October 26th at the Golden Unicorn Restaurant in Chinatown. It was such a pleasure to work with her from our initial meeting through the night of the wedding. Thanks, Marla, for making the process easy, seamless, and fun. I have received a multitude of compliments on the music for the reception, everyone telling me how wonderful they thought Marla was and that the music choices and transitions were perfect. Marla seemingly effortlessly wove together my husband's and my eclectic music choices with complimentary musical selections, setting the tone of the evening, and ensuring that everyone had a fabulous time. Several of my friends are professional musicians, and they were undoubtedly the most vocal in their compliments, saying how great the music was the entire night and how much fun they had as a result.

Many, many thanks to Marla for making our night such an absolute blast!! We couldn’t have been more pleased.

Carol is fabulous! I chose her after attending my cousins wedding a few years ago and loving the vibe and music there. She was absolutely fantastic to work with - not only was she very responsive over email, but she always took the time to talk with me over the phone about details and if I had questions. We opted to have Beledo play acoustic guitar during our ceremony, and we chose contemporary songs rather than traditional. It was everything I had envisioned and our guests all commented on how beautiful the ceremony music was. He also played piano during our cocktail hour and it set the mood perfectly.

Our reception music was great! We had worked really hard on our playlist and Carol knew exactly when the right time was for everything. The only "complaint" I have gotten about our wedding so far is that people wanted to dance to every song. Carol was really a pleasure to work with and she executed flawlessly - the music at a wedding can really make or break the mood and ours was perfect thanks to her. I would recommend her to anyone!

Oh Andrea, what fun! I never had a bride tell me to start the dance music while the main course was still being served ;-) I hope you had a chance to have your dinner. What great dancers -- all of your guests. Also, it was amazing to see the baby photos of your cousins - a few years after their wedding. I love to see my client's after wedding baby photos!
Beledo and I wish you both a lifetime of dancing and happiness.

We cannot say enough about A Starry Night Music, they were an integral part of our beautiful wedding. We spoke with Carol who arranged for Michael Abbaticola to DJ our reception, and for Beledo to play piano at our ceremony and free-play guitar at the cocktail hour. Simply put, they were perfect; Carol, Beledo and Michael are wonderful and patient people and were just ideal to work with. Carol was in constant communication with us when we needed, Michael met with us at convenient times to discuss the reception music and made suggestions, and Beledo is a class act and masterful artist who will give you the best live performance you could ask for.

Beledo has an eloquent and stylish presence and played the piano beautifully and perfectly for our ceremony and free-played guitar for the cocktail hour. The way he played the piano was so touching that you could see the emotion being stirred in everyone in the room. We didn't attend cocktail hour but everyone would not stop commenting on what a fantastic performance he gave on the guitar.

Michael was equally terrific as our DJ; he was professional and extremely friendly and easy to work with. He played everything we requested and was extremely knowledgeable on all types and genres of music. The dance floor flowed perfectly and Michael knows exactly what to play and when to play it. His introductions were flawless and he will make sure he goes over them with you to get them just right. The entire time he had a great vibe going on the dance floor and he conducts the announcements with perfect timing and eloquence. He's just an all around class-act and you can't go wrong if he's your DJ.

It really gave us great joy having them as part of our wedding; again, all we can say is that they were absolutely perfect and we give them the highest regards and recommendations. Thank you Carol, Beledo and Michael, for being part of our wedding and making it as perfect as possible!

Carol Moore is the MOST FABULOUS DJ! My daughter was married earlier this month at the University Club and I have received emails, cards and phone calls ever since about the fabulous music and presentation provided by A Starry Night. Beautiful, with a sultry voice that was rarely heard (because her specialty is to present the music without any 'chatter'), we all enjoyed her talent, her professional attitude and her efforts to incorporate the bride and groom's playlist. We will be recommending her to any brides-to-be that will listen to us sing her praises.
And, bonus: her husband played piano at the cocktail reception- indescribably wonderful as well!

We first met with Carol months in advance of our wedding and we instantly knew she was exactly what we were looking for. It can be very difficult to find DJs that are open to your personal input and music requests, Carol encouraged us to never hesitate to tell her exactly what we wanted to hear at our wedding. She took our personalized playlist and mixed it beautifully to create a night that was full of dancing and fun. We were also looking for a more laid back atmosphere where the DJ would not be screaming at our guests and Carol was very elegant and tasteful in her announcements. As the wedding date grew closer, Carol was super easy to reach and worked through all of the details every step of the way. She even helped my husband plan a surprise performance! Carol really went above and beyond our expectations and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a DJ.

The classiest DJ you could ever hope for!!! Carol was a dream to work with as we planned the playlist for dinner/dancing, as well as carved a very non-traditional musical interlude for the ceremony. Piano solos for the processional brought a tear to many eyes and the recessional was fun and jazzy. The cocktail keyboards kept a lively and classic mood in the room. If you are afraid of the typical cheesy DJ approach - call Carol immediately and be put at ease that you have found someone who 'gets' what you are hoping for in creating a memorable, fun, danceable wedding that crosses generations with class!

Carol Moore was an absolutely fabulous DJ. After my fiance and I met with Carol, we knew she was perfect for our wedding. Carol is so sweet, and more importantly, really knows her stuff. We got the sense that she could DJ a wedding with her eyes closed. Leading up to the wedding, Carol was wonderful to work with. She is very organized and responsive. We had some fairly obscure songs on our list, and she made sure she had all of them for our big night. She even cut our entrance song perfectly, and sent us the sound file so we could listen to it and approve it a few weeks before our wedding. At our wedding, Carol was PHENOMENAL. She is so classy and made our reception elegant and so much fun. She has such a nice voice over the microphone and never rambles on like so many DJs do. She really encourages dancing between courses. I spent most of my wedding on the dance floor, and all of our family and friends were right there with us because Carol kept the party going. She played all of our "must plays" and "favorites" and of course none of our "do not plays." She also took requests and played her own selections, and it was all perfect and seamless! Also, we had a Jewish wedding, and she has a great mix for the Hora and the Mezinke, and even though the majority of our guests were not Jewish, everyone joined in the fun! Carol is also very attuned to the bride and groom during the reception, so if you want a song to be cut short, or anything else, you just give Carol a look and she will know what you want! I 100% recommend Carol for your wedding, bar/bat mitzvah, or any occasion. She has a gift and she uses it to make your event perfect. She is so wonderful that two of my friends getting married over the next year have also hired her. My husband and I are so excited to see her and dance until our feet hurt all over again!!!

She is so wonderful that two of my friends getting married over the next year have also hired her. My husband and I are so excited to see her and dance until our feet hurt all over again!!! Read less

When we were looking for a DJ, we had no idea where to begin. But, when I initially spoke to Carol, she put my mind at ease, helped give me a sense of what she offered, and how she differed from the thousands of DJs in New York City. The price was just right, and we signed up before too long. Working with her to design our reception was a delight, and Carol helped up every step of the way. During the event, Carol made sure to play all our must-plays, took requests, kept people dancing, and was quick to work with us to switch up our schedule to better the flow of the night. Our guests loved the entertainments, and we wouldn’t change a thing. Highly recommended!!

Carol’s husband Beledo, a world-renowned classical guitarist, was also able to play music for our reception. He knew our songs, played beautifully, and we did not have a single issue or negative comment. Both the reception and the ceremony entertainment were fully customizable, including added multi-cultural music selections and tasteful announcements.

Gabriela Jeffery was our DJ from A Starry Night Music and she was outstanding! The bride and groom feel they had the "best wedding ever" and she was a HUGE part of that. She set the tone for a perfect evening with exactly the right mix of music, quiet time, volume, energy, and fun. Plus her delightful accent made everything sound better. One of our friends, who had two daughters get married in very elaborate weddings in Palm Beach and in Nantucket, said he didn't know why anyone would ever have a band when they could have a DJ like Gabriela. A Starry Night Music was a delight to deal with from beginning to end. Owner Carol was attentive, supportive, easy to contact and always approachable. We feel so very lucky that they were part of our wedding celebration.

Carol was outstanding!! She is very sweet, was always responsive, arrived promptly, and delivered exactly what I wanted - no cheesy dancing, no smoke/lights, just great dance music! I met with her a few months before my wedding, but didn't have a chance to finalize my songs until a few weeks before my wedding (it might have even been the week before). Nevertheless, Carol expertly mixed our wedding song (just the way I wanted it), played every song I asked her to, and did not play a single song I did not like. She was great at reading the crowd and delivered a great party. Thank you!

Carol offered alternate locations and went with the flow as we found our new location at the very last minute! I have no regrets!

Her husband Beledo played the acoustic guitar beautifully during our cocktail hour. During the reception, Carol was so great and calm when we were practicing our first dance. She stuck to our playlist and accommodated our special requests from songs we found on youtube! Thank you Carol & Beledo for making our event memorable!

Gabriela performed at our wedding on OCotber 12th at Studio 450 in NYC. From the moment I met her - 4 months before I knew that she would absolutely rock. She also has the coolest accent ever so she made everything sound so exotic :).

Gabriela has all music possible. We had an indian wedding and the sitar music she had was everything I wanted for the ceremony. At the recpetion she really got the party started and played everything we could have ever wished for! She was so receptive to the crowd and everyone spent the whole night on the dance floor. I think thats a measure of success.

Gabriela is awesome, shes so flexible (FYI She spent over an hour on the phone with me walking through the day and we went through everything she needed to know and she made such great suggestions for us to think about too). She also practiced everyones names with me so many times (indian names can be tricky) and she honestly has better pronounciation than I do.

Another thing - the price. One of the lowest quotes i received and we got such exceptional service.

Would recommend Gabriela to everyone - she is so lovely and treats everything so professionaly. If you hire her you know that she will get the party started and your guests will not want to leave

A Starry Night was a fantastic vendor. Our DJ was Gabriela Jeffery and she was wonderful. We initially met with Gabriela to talk with her and decide if she was the right DJ for us. She met us at a coffee shop near our house and we spent about an hour discussing aspects of our wedding we didn't even realize we should be thinking about. We explained to her our music preferences and she even had traditional Greek music which I wanted played for my family. She was extremely professional and helped us structure our reception. After spending about 5 minutes talking to her, we knew she was the person we wanted to play our wedding.

We dealt with Carol for the contract and payment. Carol was great, everything was taken care of smoothly and professionally.

When Gabriela actually played our wedding, it exceeded our expectations. The music she selected and played was perfect. It was tasteful--if you are looking for strobe lights and disco balls, then she is probably not the person for you. Gabriela paced the reception and truly was the most professional vendor we had. She was much more helpful that the hall coordinators. I owe her a debt of gratitude for making our wedding a magical night.

She was completely on point with everything and communicated with me constantly to make sure I was nothing less than thrilled with her performance.

Carol did such a fabulous job at our wedding - we would recommend her to anyone! Throughout the entire day the music was just perfect, from our Hindu ceremony to cocktail hour to dinner and dancing. Carol worked with us in advance to hash out all the details, from what were must-play songs to which members of the wedding party should be announced and when, and even tiny details we wouldn't have thought of, like at which point in the first dance should guests be invited to join. She fulfilled all of our requests expertly and the combination of music she played kept all generations dancing the whole night long and made the party inclusive for all (which was important to us, since we were mixing Indian and Italian-American cultures and wanted everyone to feel at home). Our parents and all the guests - from our friends to cousins to aunts/uncles, even grandma! - are still raving about how great she was. We had SUCH a fabulous time and we were thrilled to see such a packed dance floor the entire night. :-) Carol is amazing, and we will recommend A Starry Night to everyone we know!

Carol, from A Starry Night, was our DJ for our wedding at the Olde Mill Inn. I could not have asked for a better experience.

Carol is attentive, flexible, and creative. She is not cheesy like some other DJs (talking over music, in your face, etc.) She played exactly what we wanted and added in extra songs that fit just right! She had to be set-up in three locations (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception) and was able to do so without any problem or lag. She was able to find and play the exact song I wanted for my entrance. Carol also had great ideas regarding scheduling and making announcements during the evening. She is very detail-oriented and easily accessible to answer questions.

She also gave us a great deal price-wise, and her services were worth every penny!! Highly recommended!

Gabriela was wonderful. She did a great job of tailoring the ceremony to our tastes, using a ton of the music we selected and suggesting some more that we loved. She really listened to us and I felt that she cared about making the night what we wanted. Also, there was no mention or occurrence of cheesy wedding music or annoying games that DJs sometimes include in weddings. All of the guests had a great time dancing, and the music she played during dinner was beautiful and appropriate. She was also very communicative and professional leading up to and during the event, and her prices are very reasonable. I can't recommend her enough!

A Starry Night did a fantastic job on our wedding. Carol, the owner, was very friendly and great to communicate with when we were in the planning phase and Michael, the DJ in charge of our evening was spectacular and very professional. We had a smaller wedding and didn't want to have a DJ who went overboard on the talking - Michael made announcements in a very smooth way - introduced those who had toasts (despite getting only a handwritten list from me during the cocktail hour), and played a fantastic blend of songs that we had requested in advance and other fitting music (the dance floor was happening, even though we only had 34 guests!). He also ensured the flow of the evening - introduced the cake cutting, first dance etc. I would happily recommend A Starry Night and Michael to anyone.

A good DJ can transform a good party into a great one. How lucky were we to find Carol Moore to be our DJ. From our first consultation to the last dance, Carol was conscientious, cooperative and professional. Her suggestions were spot on. Together, we developed a playlist and she was flexible enough to accommodate last minute requests and creative enough to add a few surprises. She kept the danced floor packed. Carol was prompt, efficient and unobtrusive. She announced only what had been agreed upon and did so in a professional manner. We highly recommend A Starry Night Music to anyone who is looking for a great music experience.

She was very open to all of our ideas and understood what we wanted. During our reception she moved things along to keep us on track. She was able to "read the crowd" so well and played the right music at the right time. Gabriela was fantastic and it was so easy to work with her.

Carol was fantastic! She really knew how to read the crowd and anticipate tastes, while abiding by our requests as well. She was very reasonable and everyone was complementing our selection of our DJ. In NJ where I am from, a lot of DJs steal the show and make it all about them- carol was the opposite. We were looking for a DJ to be seen and not heard and she was professional and low key herself while selecting music to keep the dancing going! Perfect balance!

Words cannot describe what a wonderful DJ, professional human being the lovely Carol Moore is! Our wedding could not have been the same without her talent. She worked with us on the playlist weeks before the wedding and helped us organize the evening which went by incredibly smooth. Today when a song from our cocktail hour, or the wedding dinner comes up, my husband and I look at each other and smile, because it reminds us of our night, these songs, and most importantly the timing of the songs, became the soundtrack of our wedding! We could not decide on a song to cut the cake, so I instinctively told Carol to surprise me, she played a song that made me cry as I walked to our wedding cake. SHE'S THAT GOOD!! It was just that perfect. I have also gone to my share of weddings, and I wasn't fond of certain traditions, and once I spoke to Carol about them, she gave me excellent alternatives, that made our night even more special. Since we had our ceremony and cocktail hour at the same place back to back, Carol suggested that my husband and I should take our pictures beforehand, so that we could mingle and enjoy every single minute of our wedding. BEST ADVICE EVER! Having my husband see me for the first time as a bride alone, made it even more special, for we shared a beautiful moment in private, and the pictures came out just lovely because we weren't rushing! Her set up is also perfect, she's discreet and elegant, she knows that the night is about the bride and groom, so unlike many DJs that I have seen, she's not trying to get attention for herself by announcing something every 5 minutes or so. Just spectacular!! We also had a buffet at the wedding, and Carol quietly went from table to table to announce that the dinner was served instead of making an announcement over the microphone. Our guests are still talking about our wedding and how much fun they had! For my father-daughter dance, my father chose a song that his grandparents used to dance to [mind you my dad is 70!!] I thought is was a long shot, and yet somehow Carol got the song, a waltz from the late 30s, that made our photographer cry! She's superb, simple fantastic, classy, and wonderful! The very best!!!!!

We worked with Carol Moore, and she was amazing. She was very easy to work with for all of the planning, and kept track of every detail. She got a good sense of what we liked and didn't like, and was super responsive. The night of our wedding, everything went perfectly. The dance floor was full from start to finish, and everyone had a great time. We received a lot of compliments on the music. It was perfect, and I'm really thrilled that we worked with Carol. I absolutely recommend her.

Carol was our DJ at our wedding two weeks ago and I am still hearing comments from our friends and family. Carol is not only kind, attentive and professional but she did a wonderful job incorporating many cultures into the music she played. Everyone was dancing and enjoying every minute of the reception.
We also hired Beledo as our musician for both the ceremony and the cocktail hour and he was incredible! Booking "A Starry Night Music" was one of the best decisions we ever made and it ensured that our wedding was everything we had hoped for. Thanks to Carol and Beledo for helping to make our wedding day so special! -Veronica & Alex

Carol and her team are outstanding professionals, and were such a big part of creating a perfect day for us - Carol offers helpful suggestions throughout the entire planning and day of process, and works with you to gather insights and then fill in the blanks. This was so great considering we both work 60+ hours a week and did not have a wedding planner - there were things we wanted to influence but just didn't have the time - and Carol got us through it.

Before our wedding with Belado, her guitar soloist, and during the wedding, Carol set the perfect tone and kept things moving in a fun, never-boring, but never rushed way - we continue to hear compliments about how fun things were.

Carol also easily accomodated a number of soloists we had perform, as well helped us pick the perfect music for our diverse guests and musical tastes, including how and when to play certain songs.

She's the best!

I wish there was an option for 10 STARS! My husband and I were married on June 18th. Beledo provided the most beautiful music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. He is extremely talented and provided an atmosphere of elegance and romance. Carol was the perfect DJ for our reception. She is kind, fun, organized, professional, not intrusive. I was worried that my 75 guests wouldn't be up for much dancing at 1pm on a Saturday afternoon, but I was wrong! Carol had everyone dancing and having a great time. My sister was married almost 10 years ago and Carol and Beledo provided the music for her wedding as well. I knew immediately I wanted to hire them for mine! From start to finish, my experience was flawless. I highly recommend A Starry Night!

She truly seems to be having fun doing her job, and has an intuitive grasp of the mood in the room, switching effortlessly between slow- and fast-tempo songs depending on who is on the floor. Carol also listens to her clients, playing only things you tell her you like while adding suggestions based on her wide-ranging knowledge of domestic and international music. I enthusiastically recommend A Starry Night for any wedding, party, or festive event.

A Starry Night Music provided a wonderful experience for our wedding, from start to finish. They gave us world-class DJing and live music for a very reasonable price, and they made this important element of our event stress-free. I highly recommend them.

Carol Moore was our DJ at the reception, and she also arranged instrumental music for our ceremony (the Joan Capra string ensemble) and cocktail hour (Beledo).

Carol made planning the music for our wedding easy: she was always responsive, courteous, and patient with our many questions and ideas. Carol was a total professional. My husband and I never had to stress about the music, because we felt confident that Carol would take care of everything.

Carol took our multicultural wedding music song requests and came up with a creative music playlist for our reception. At the wedding, Carol kept the reception running smoothly, and she spoke for just the right amount time, introducing speakers and dancers correctly. Carol's equipment was unobtrusive, which our photographer appreciated. Importantly for us, Carol, Beledo, and the musicians of the Joan Capra string ensemble were genuinely nice people that got along well with our guests and family, and we enjoyed having them be part of the wedding.

Carol from A Starry Night did an excellent job at our wedding! It was a fusion wedding (American & Indian) and she did a fantastic job weaving through our list of must-have songs, giving equal attention to both American and Indian music throughout the night – her expert skills made everything seamless. Our guest favorites were the mixed songs of the evening – a bhangra Thriller was priceless!!! Any song we requested, Carol had or easily obtained, no request was ever too esoteric! While she did a great job playing most of our “must-have” songs, there were a few missed ones, but this likely happens no matter who your DJ is, so make sure any song that you truly MUST have, you indicate as such.

Carol also did an excellent job MCing the wedding, especially when my brother gave her a last minute CD containing mixed songs to which he wanted to perform! Nothing fazed her and she was so pleasant the entire evening. Her style is very under-stated and elegant, but still full of energy (rare in your run-of-the-mill Djs) which is exactly what we wanted. She always made sure the focus was on us throughout the night, not like many other DJs/MCs who like to hear themselves speak the whole night and are in your guests’ face, often forcing them to dance.

Also, Carol has access to other instrumentalists. Carol arranged a harpist for our ceremony and cocktail hour. And not just any harpist, one that had played among the musicians at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. Claudia played some lovely music on the harp for us. It was such a small addition, but added so much charm and romanticism to our ceremony.

Our only criticism is that she ended our party a little abruptly. We knew it was going to end because we had chosen the last song, but our guests did not. Carol did not make an announcement saying this was going to be the last dance or anything. It came on, we danced, then the music stopped and she congratulated us and said the night had come to an end. It was an upbeat song too so our guests were definitely surprised. My husband went up to Carol to request some slow music as guests were leaving to make things flow a little better, which Carol immediately started, no problem. The ending of the night was a little bit of a disappointment, but overall, Carol was everything we had hoped she would be. Her unparalleled collection of music, laid back attitude and ability to go with the flow make her an excellent DJ/MC – she kept our dance floor packed and excited the entire night!!!

We couldn't have been happier with Gabriela! The dancefloor was packed all night. She had a real feel for our crowd. She played something for everyone so all of our guests felt like they were part of the party.

But the music was just part of what Gabriela brought to our wedding. She helped us line up our bridal party for introductions and she answered pretty much anything we asked about what to expect on our big day. Her experience was really evident and it gave us BIG piece of mind! And she was fun to work with...very enthusiastic.

We'd happily recommend Gabriela to anyone who's looking for a DJ for their wedding!

I wanted to thank you for the fantastic job you did both leading up to and during our wedding. Everyone raved about the music and our friends would not stop dancing! The preparation leading up to our reception was so effortless and even fun! The way that you worked with our limited music knowledge was so helpful and we couldn't have done it without you. I thought we had known each other before we ever met! Please keep in touch. Jessica

Carol was a dream come true. I so did not want a guy with bad highlights & a shiny vest behind some obnoxious sign screaming at our guests and playing songs that make my head hurt. A Starry Night is the antithesis of that AND, even better, you don't lose the banging party. Carol DJed our wedding and people have not stopped commenting on how great the music was and how she did not waste any time in getting the party started. Carol knew instinctively the exact vibe I wanted and made it come true. As a former DJ and a (recovering) control freak, it felt so good to just not worry about the music piece, knowing it was safe in Carol's capable hands. Beledo played beautiful piano for our ceremony music and guitar during the cocktail hour, then Carol took over for the reception and it was all just perfect (even with a rocky transition or two that snuck in). I worked exclusively with Carol in planning the music piece of our event and it could not have gone more smoothly. She was so responsive, calming and caring. She was the vendor I really looked forward to calling or e-mailing. It was also great just having their positive, calming spirits involved for the planning and execution of the wedding.

This is a review for Joan Capra, violinist, who works with Carol Moore.
My wedding was in the Conservatory Gardens, and was a small and intimiate affair. The gardens do not permit music except for strings. I decided to try a violinist for the elegance it would add to the event. And it worked well.
I let Joan choose all the music except for the recessional, which I wanted to be 'our song' and she played that once I got the sheet music to her.
I did not need a dj as we did not have a typical reception, so a violinist work perfect as it was all about the elegance. Joan and I had a few conversations beforehand and it was clear what I could expect. Joan was willing to work with whatever I needed.
And it was apparent that on my wedding day the ambiance was just as important to her as it was to me.
Thank you Joan!

Carol was great. We had a lot of trouble finding a DJ who we liked, because we had a slightly unusual reception (dancing was in a separate room and wasn't a priority to us, but we still wanted a DJ and not just music playing). We had a DJ flat out tell us that he didn't want to work at our wedding, and were delighted at how excited and enthusiastic and eager Carol was about our wedding plans, right from the first meeting!!

I, like many brides, got a bit flustered and stressed pre-wedding, and my plans of carefully planning the music, including play and do not play lists, went out the window. But based on the sheets I filled out for her, she built great song lists that were just what I wanted, and included all of our "must play" songs perfectly. One of my guests told me that she played all of the music that they wanted at THEIR wedding last year.

We had a specific list of pre ceremony songs we wanted, leading up the processional, and she mixed them together so they faded into each other, which was great, and then built the rest of the pre-ceremony music off of that playlist, so it flowed really well. Her system was wonderful, and the wireless mic we used for the ceremony picked everything up really well. Timing was really good, too, and she was flexible - I changed my processional song about three days before the wedding, after having it picked out for months, and I had meant to double check with her prior to the ceremony beginning to make sure it was good to go, but I didn't need to.

Our wedding was a little unusual, because the reception was in three connected rooms, with guests sitting in two and dancing in a third. We also had a lot of interactive food (stations, cake buffet), so eating was a little more action based than it normally was, so we didn't get as much dancing as a normal wedding - maybe three or four songs of dancing after the cake cutting. BUT, we're not big dancers, our family and friends were too busy eating cake, so it wasn't a big deal. But what was impressive to me was how concerned Carol was that no one was dancing - which was completely NOT her fault, it's just that our guests are, well, people who would rather eat cake and drink a cup of coffee and talk to their aunt than hit the dance floor, especially if you had to walk there. She was genuinely concerned that we would be upset that no one was dancing, which I could care less about. We planned to get everyone on the dance floor for the song before the last dance, and then the last dance, and then it was over.

So, basically, she was awesome. Her equipment was discrete and well placed, she has a wonderful voice for announcements, is very nice, very on top of everything and into details. She called me on Friday night because she couldn't find a specific version of a song we had requested, and was willing to get the CD overnighted to her so it could be at our wedding - thankfully, my husband simply had the MP3 and emailed it over to her. Most of all, she really does everything that she can to make sure that you have the perfect wedding. I would highly recommend her.

We had a DJ flat out tell us that he didn't want to work at our wedding, and were delighted at how excited and enthusiastic and eager Carol was about our wedding plans, right from the first meeting!!

I, like many brides, got a bit flustered and stressed pre-wedding, and my plans of carefully planning the music, including play and do not play lists, went out the window. But based on the sheets I filled out for her, she built great song lists that were just what I wanted, and included all of our "must play" songs perfectly. One of my guests told me that she played all of the music that they wanted at THEIR wedding last year.

We had a specific list of pre ceremony songs we wanted, leading up the processional, and she mixed them together so they faded into each other, which was great, and then built the rest of the pre-ceremony music off of that playlist, so it flowed really well. Her system was wonderful, and the wireless mic we used for the ceremony picked everything up really well. Timing was really good, too, and she was flexible - I changed my processional song about three days before the wedding, after having it picked out for months, and I had meant to double check with her prior to the ceremony beginning to make sure it was good to go, but I didn't need to.

Our wedding was a little unusual, because the reception was in three connected rooms, with guests sitting in two and dancing in a third. We also had a lot of interactive food (stations, cake buffet), so eating was a little more action based than it normally was, so we didn't get as much dancing as a normal wedding - maybe three or four songs of dancing after the cake cutting. BUT, we're not big dancers, our family and friends were too busy eating cake, so it wasn't a big deal. But what was impressive to me was how concerned Carol was that no one was dancing - which was completely NOT her fault, it's just that our guests are, well, people who would rather eat cake and drink a cup of coffee and talk to their aunt than hit the dance floor, especially if you had to walk there. She was genuinely concerned that we would be upset that no one was dancing, which I could care less about. We planned to get everyone on the dance floor for the song before the last dance, and then the last dance, and then it was over.

So, basically, she was awesome. Her equipment was discrete and well placed, she has a wonderful voice for announcements, is very nice, very on top of everything and into details. She called me on Friday night because she couldn't find a specific version of a song we had requested, and was willing to get the CD overnighted to her so it could be at our wedding - thankfully, my husband simply had the MP3 and emailed it over to her. Most of all, she really does everything that she can to make sure that you have the perfect wedding. I would highly recommend her. Read less

Carol was incredible, after one conversation with us she filled our wedding with the most best music we could have imagined, and found even hard-to-come-by recordings.

She found wonderful music that spoke to our guests about who we are and what we wanted our wedding to be. Our family and friends noticed it because we are still receiving compliments about her.

We cannot recommend her enough, or overstate how important she and Beledo were for the look and feel of our reception.

Carol DJ'd our daytime wedding 3 weeks ago and was FANTASTIC from the first time I emailed her.
She always got back to me immediately, or called to let me know when she would be able to talk in more detail.
She took care of everything we asked for, she was fun and professional, complemented the ideas we came to her with for and offered suggestions in other departments.
I had been worried that people might not dance as much since it was a daytime wedding, but, at several times during the day I looked out at the dance floor and couldn't believe how many of our guests were out there-even people who didn't know each other before that day were joining each other on the dance floor. She checked in with us during the reception to ensure that we were happy with everything, and the day was so much better because of her contributions.
My husband and I keep saying we want to have another big party so we have an excuse to hire Carol again. I can't say enough good things about her.

From the first moment I contacted her at A Starry Night, I was so happy to find someone who listened and understood what we were looking for with our wedding music. We wanted someone who would play our music list and be able to make it work. (We are both somewhat picky with our music). And she really delivered! She always seemed to know instinctively what to play at every moment to rock the dance floor! The dance floor was packed all night! Also, she is really sweet and fun to work with throughout the whole process. Highly recommend!

Carol was AMAZING! She was everything we wanted for a wedding DJ - she is extremely professional, classy, and tasteful, but also knows how to keep people out on the dancefloor!

We had a very random list of "must play" songs - running the spectrum from country music to hip hop and house, and Carol played everything we asked for, plus added in perfect songs that we hadn't thought of. We danced the entire night.

Announcements were kept to a minimum, only the essentials, and were always elegant, keeping with the nature of the event, which is exactly what we wanted. We cannot say enough good things about our experience with this company - Carol was always responsive, always flexible, and just absolutely amazing.

Carol DJed our June 12, 2010 wedding in New York City and was absolutely fabulous! From the first phone consultation to our pre-wedding meetings and of course on the wedding day itself she was great to work and plan with.

She bills herself as an "elegant" alternative to the usual cheesy wedding DJs and that is exactly what you get. She worked with us on a list of songs we wanted played but filled in the song selection at the wedding with other music that fit the style and mood we were going for. Her MC style was understated and non-obtrusive and she knew when to make the necessary announcements, when to amp up the "party" music, and when to slip in the slow songs.

We also got fave reviews about her from guests at the wedding! We would recommend her to anyone getting married in New York City or its environs if you want great music and a smooth music planning process for your wedding!!!

All of the generations danced all night! She was exactly what we had hoped for in our wedding DJ and we can't thank her enough!!

Carol was extremely responsive and helpful in the months leading up to the wedding. I always felt comfortable emailing her with a question or when I needed music advice, she always answered my questions quickly and made wonderful suggestions! Carol was also our disc jockey for our reception while Beledo, Carol�s husband, performed during our ceremony and cocktail hour.

I received many compliments about Beledo's performance � he was AMAZING, a truly talented guitarist! He created a wonderful ambiance, exactly what we imagined for our wedding day.

Carol did an amazing job during our reception � her professionalism, talent and class was evident the entire evening. Although we considered giving her a playlist for the evening (something she was completely open to), we decided to give her a few suggestions and asked her to use her experience to determine what would get our guests on the dance floor. She did an amazing job � from Salsa, to Rock, Latin Freestyle to R&B, she played it all!

I have already recommended Carol to a friend, and will continue to recommend Carol and her team, my experience with them was fantastic!

Adam was awesome! He made no* announcements, no football music, and no strobe lights!! It was just elegant, and really personal; we felt like he understood exactly what we wanted. But by the end of the night, EVERYONE was dancing (even our bosses, colleagues, etc.); it was a perfect balance between elegant and fun.

I worked with Carol at A Starry Night on DJing and music for my wedding. They were both extremely helpful and patient during the planning process. I never felt rushed or worried - everything ran so smoothly. And at the wedding, the guitarist, Beledo, and the DJ, were awesome!

So many people raved about Beledo's music during the ceremony and especially the cocktail hour. He was a huge hit, and the perfect touch to a perfect evening.

She's amazing! So many of our guests have told us she was the best wedding DJ ever, and she was. The dance floor was full of people the whole wedding, and she had everyone dancing - old people, young people - everyone. I've literally never seen my parents dance before, and they danced at my wedding! Multiple times!

Carol Moore was fantastic. She provided music we chose and did it with class. Music makes the event and she was open to all our suggestions, played what we wished and was, as she put it, a "quiet linebacker" when fielding requests.

She made our night special and I would definitely use her again and recommend her to future couples.

Carol is amazing. We gave her a list of songs we wanted, she played ALL of them, and filled in the rest with great selections. She was totally professional but also fun and kept the evening moving (announcing dances, toasts, etc.). Can't recommend her highly enough - we danced until I literally couldn't stand up anymore!

Carol is the sweetest, most sincere, friendly person! When we first met, I noticed that her home phone # was same area code as where I live,so I asked if she lived nearby. When we found out how close our homes were to each other, she suggested we meet at a nearby Starbucks! How’s that for convenient? Each time we spoke, I felt more and more comfortable and by the end of our discussions, I felt like she was more of a friend. Her knowledge of music is extensive and she guarantees any song that you put on the list will be played. She did play every must play song and didn’t play any of our do not play list.My husband’s Aunt Eileen died 5 days before our wedding and we originally had “Come on Eileen” as a song idea. We emailed her to take it off the list but during the reception, her son asked for it. We requested it and within a few minutes, Carol had it on. It was one of the most beautiful parts of our night and it would not have been possible had Carol not been so good at what she does. The dance floor was packed the whole night and many guests commented on how great the music was. The only negative thing we heard about the music was that another slow song might have been nice for the guys who only dance to slow songs and I did happen to agree. During the party, we all got caught up in this whirlwind of dancing and didn’t notice. I think that was probably her reason for not playing one, to keep the party going. Other than that, if you want a DJ for a reasonable price, not a lot of smoke and lights, who doesn’t talk over the music and is courteous and fun, look no further. I would highly recommend her to everyone. In fact I did, and my friend who is got married in October booked her and loved her, too!

When we were first planning our wedding we were intending to just use an ipod but realized that logistically it would be best to have someone to MC the evening so that it flowed well and the big things would be announced. We interviewed several prospective DJs and settled on A Starry Night since Carol seemed easy to work with, very professional, and classic. Carol was very responsive throughout the whole process (even while she was away on vacation) and helped us personalize our night nicely. She offered to craft a mix of songs for our first dance and we took her up on the offer and asked her to put 3 (very different) songs together. She worked very hard on the mix, making multiple versions to match our suggestions and it came out great! She even gave us a digital copy to practice dancing with. When it came time at the reception for our first dance, the first part played wonderfully but the second part was left out, going straight to the third part – it ended up not being a huge problem at all, we still had our moment, and she apologized profusely. The only other minor hangup was that the cake-cutting was either not announced or said very quietly, my fiancé and I recognized the song we picked and rushed over but several guests mentioned missing this part from not hearing an announcement. The rest of the night was fantastic, we only requested a couple of “must-have” songs and she flowed the rest of the songs beautifully, the dance floor was packed for the majority of the evening and was a lot of fun! During cocktail hour and dinner hour she kept the music at a reasonable volume as to not be too loud for the older guests, many commented on how nice the entire evening was. All in all, it was a pleasure working with Carol and we’d recommend her services.

A Starry Night Music responded with the following comments:

It was such a pleasure working with you both! Being scientists, your precision was highly appreciated. It is true that in the multiple mixes we created in the weeks before your wedding, I inadvertently used an earlier version of the mix of songs which were to follow your beautiful first dance. I do apologize and you are very gracious.

I did announce the cake cutting. This is something I always do, and it is the maitre'd who is to organize the cake cutting, but I did announce it.

It was a beautiful night and thank you so much for your kind words. I wish you both a lifetime of joy.

We really appreciate everything she did leading up to and during the wedding. Thanks for making our day so fantastic Carol!

We used Gabriela Jeffrey from Starry Night Music as the DJ at our wedding and she was great. She played everything that we asked for. She also played some requests (but not all) and really had the crowd up and dancing at our day time wedding. She worked with the Father of the Bride on a song that he performed and it came out great. She did not make any intrusive announcements or do any "dance motivation." We were looking for great music without the usual obnoxious DJ interuptions and that is just what we got. Highly recommend Gabriela!

We booked Gabriela Jefries through Starry Night. She gave us paperwork in good time to give her our must play songs and suggestion list, and was very responsive when we emailed her. Two weeks before the wedding, my ceremony musician (a friend) backed out. Starry Night only books one event per day, so she easily added the additional hours to play our ceremony music as well. Everyone loved, loved, loved the music, and it reflected our tastes to a tee. I highly recommend A Starry Night. They are definitely worth the expense.

When we were looking for DJs, they seemed to fall into two camps: fist-pumping and forced participation, or music snobs who have their own "do not play" lists. So we were happy to find this company!

They have several DJs - we used Carol, the owner, but we liked the fact that we could rely on one of her hand-picked colleagues if something happened. She made announcements, but she let the music do the motivating. No napkin-passing games or cake-cutting play-by-play, and she was happy to play a couple of "cheesy" songs that we liked (yes, there are some DJs who have an anti-"Love Shack" policy). The result - a sophisticated party that was still fun!

We contacted A Starry Night because of their reviews. Once we met our DJ, we knew we found the right DJ. She was very friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable about music. She definitely knew how to read a crowd. She played a lot of the music that we requested as well as strictly adhering to our "Do Not Play" list. Just a side note, we wanted to play some Latin music and she was very comfortable with this (she's from Uruguay!).

We also hired Beledo from A Starry Night to play during our cocktail hour and he was AMAZING!!! He played classics, modern and spanish music on his acoustic guitar, which set such a beautiful atmosphere for our cocktail hour.

And just as an added plus, they did not charge for travelling to CT from NYC for our wedding!!! Although there are cheaper DJs out there, A Starry Night was really worth the price. There was absolutely no cheese that you would get from most other DJs! I highly recommend them!

We recently used A Starry Night for our outdoor wedding. Carol was extremely responsive and easy to work with. We used Marla as our DJ, and she was absolutely fantastic! We wanted the 'no cheesy' wedding and that is exactly what we got. Marla played all the music we wanted and was able to get the guests up to dance when the time was right. She was perfect. We also booked a guitarist Paul Myers for our ceremony and cocktail hour. During cocktail hour he was observed standing around eating and had to be asked to sit back down and play. He was contracted for 2 hours, I think he could find time to eat after. Would not recommend him.

We used DJ Carol for our cocktail hour and reception. We also booked the Joan Capra Duo for our ceremony through Starry Night.

During the planning process, Carol was a pleasure to work with. She was willing to work with my budget which was a big plus. Due to the distance, we did not meet beforehand, but she was very professional and responsive and I felt that she really understood what my husband and I were looking for. We had a couple of miscommunications in the weeks leading up to the wedding, which Carol immediately took care of. These were short term stressors for me but in the long run were not a big deal.

On the day of my wedding, Carol was punctual and ready to go. She conferred with the coordinator at my venue about the schedule for the day. This is where things got off track a bit. Apparently all three of us had different ideas of what was planned. It went off OK overall and I do not fault Carol for the timing being different from what I had in mind. That was an issue between me and the venue.

However, I did feel that she seemed distracted at times, and I noticed her talking on her cell phone and even stepping outside to take calls. While she did play from our playlist, I felt that the timing of some of the songs was odd. For example, at least three of our slow songs were played in a row, and we did not have that many slow songs on our list. We had expected these to be mixed up more throughout the event.

Overall, we were happy with Carol because she provided the "non-cheesy" DJing that we wanted and she played the music we requested.

It was a beautiful afternoon and a pure pleasure to work with you both! I really enjoyed helping to put together the lovely musical performance by your father and sister. The additional sound system I brought worked out perfectly for the guitar and vocal. It is true that towards the end of the party, I had to take an emergency phone call. I never use my cell phone during a party. Thanks for emailing me to say that it didn't detract from your overall enjoyment of your beautiful day! All my best, Carol

I was happy with the level of service and the overall music at our ceremony and reception. We had live music for our ceremony from A Starry Night, which was okay (there was one mistake with regards to the order of the songs but the guests did not notice); the DJ for our reception was great and had the folks on the dance floor the entire night. My only comment is during introductions there were a couple of errors (saying the full name of my dad but instead of my mom's name just says BrideName's Mom) and instead of the song we picked for introductions, there was some random song. The transition into the 1st dance was also a bit awkward. Now that being said, the rest of the night from there was fabulous and I'm probably being overcritical.

From the musician and DJ: It was a beautiful wedding. However, although the lady in charge at Guastavinos promised beforehand to give the signal for the correct change of music --before sending in the bridal party -- she gave absolutely no signal at all. She just sent the bridal party walking in. This caught us completely by surprise. We have to be notified at that moment in order change music to play the right song.

Heads up, if you have your wedding at Guastavinos, let your musician / DJ know they may not be correctly cued by the venue before they send in the bridal party for their entrances.
