Joy, fun, laughter, love, friendship, festivity...you will remember your wedding forever.

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

We are a boutique company designed for the discerning couple who realize that the music is one of the most important ingredients to a successful wedding. Each wedding is a designer event. Our events are never formulaic. We think of each wedding as a blank canvas on which to create a new and extraordinary moment. Our signature style is to never repeat the same wedding.

We help you to melt away the stress of your wedding planning. This is the fun part of your preparation. Especially on your wedding day, we quietly take care of everything behind the scenes so your reception is flawless. This is the day to let everyone take care of you.

Each of our clients work directly from the beginning with their personal DJ of their choice.

Our Disc Jockeys maintain complete and absolute respect for your musical tastes. The individually tailored song lists always distinctly reflect our client's tastes in music and ambience.

Our attention to detail and adeptness at reading the dancing crowd moment by moment keeps the dance floor rocking and flowing with energy.

New York is ultimately the most cosmopolitan city. All of our DJs and musicians are vastly world traveled. We play destination weddings and events from The Hamptons to Palm Beach, Miami, Turks and Caicos, and Buenos Aires, to name a few. All of our artists tour internationally. We always know what music is playing from South Beach to Rio and Paris.

We are discreet and tasteful on the microphone for any announcements you choose, or none at all if you prefer -- because music has its own voice.

Our private events are sophisticated, cliché-free, and great fun.

At the end of the day what people remember most about their events is the music— Read less

USE HER!
We had the perfect evening of music. She facilitated every detail of our evenings personalized and complex transitions from the processional, to the varied activities on the dance floor, including the dance instructor for east coast swing, tango and most importantly, our quirky request for 70's disco, gay night club 1980s, and a dollop of contemporary. We knew she was right for us when she immediately downloaded our obscure Japanese chanteuse singing La Vie En Rose for our entry. She was reliable, professional, and experienced at following the mood of the night and fulfilling music requests during the evening. Carol really came through in making the soundtrack of our evening seamless and incredibly festive for one of the most important nights of our lives.

I want to express my deep appreciation for the help and support Carol have offered me on my wedding day. I feel very grateful for all the beautiful music she prepared for us and her excellent string band. Without Carol's help, I doubt I could have such a wonderful and dreamy wedding in such a proficient and professional manner.
We had a few phone conversations, selected play lists, and verified a couple special music selections. On our day, Carol arrived early to set up. The sound was beautiful, the lighting was on point, and the party was so wonderful until the very end! Carol's voice and annunciation were exactly what we wanted. She checked in with us earlier in the day and clarified some pronunciations, reviewed the time-line, and we got comfortable with the rhythm of the events with a mini rehearsal.
I consider myself very fortunate for having a chance to work with an expert like Carol. Working with her was a great and enjoyable experience for me. I really value the knowledge and insight she has, and her willingness to share it with me. I credit her for the success of my wedding as well as for the beautiful music journey she gave us. I thank you for that..
Our day was so awesome! With all the things that went into planning our event, working with Carol made it easier. We put our faith and trust in her, believing that she was the right choice for our day and she absolutely was! I don't think we could imagine a better wedding day. Ours was amazing, it was perfect!

Honestly, five stars is not enough -- I need ten!

I had attended weddings where Carol was the DJ and was so impressed with her we booked her for our son's wedding in March 2013. She did an outstanding job that evening and made it a very memorable wedding.

So, this year as co-chair of our country club's 125th Anniversary Ball, I knew we had to have Carol. Our club always has a band so we were breaking with tradition when we decided to go the DJ route. Trust me, there were people who questioned that decision. The result? Carol was absolutely incredible and better than any band we have ever had. Everyone raved about her and said she was so much better than a band! I've never seen the dance floor so full for so long at a party at our club. We had 659 people in attendance and she managed to get every one of them out to the dance floor. Fortunately, we had a huge dance floor because with Carol at the helm, you need a huge dance floor. She played non-stop for 6 1/2 hours and there were many that would have stayed 6 hours more!

Whenever I recommend someone or something to anyone, I always worry that they will not meet expectations EXCEPT when I recommend Carol. She is, quite simply the best, the most professional, and the most spectacular DJ. She made our 125th Ball the best party ever. From our youngest member (age 23) to our oldest (age 99) they all said she was fantastic.

Not only that, but she is so easy to work with. Her ideas about lighting and extra musicians for the dinner hour made the party. She interacted seamlessly with our videographing team and our staff. She gives 110% of herself and personally takes it on herself to make the party great. In addition, she may be the nicest person I have ever met; she makes you smile just to know her.

Bravo, Carol! You are the BEST!

We were looking for a DJ that would manage the sound/musicians for ceremony, set up sound/tasteful lighting at the reception, organize and let everyone know when we were going to do the toasts/special dances and play the music that we wanted to play. We also wanted a tasteful DJ, that isn't blasting music during dinner and too flashy. Carol is that DJ! She comes with much experience and connections we didn't have to worry about figuring out how to hire musicians or how timeline of the events would happen. She takes care of everything and is so pleasant to work with. She talked with us on the phone and also met with us in person. She made everything so easy for us, I would highly recommend her.

We hired Carol and Beledo for our wedding and they both were amazing. Carol was so attentive and went over every detail of the reception with me. She worked from the playlist that my husband and I had created and gave me great advice about how the reception should flow. Several of my guests complimented me on the music and the dance floor was full the entire night!!! Thank you Carol!!!

Carol and A Starry Night was AMAZING! We would give her 10 stars if we could!

From our first meeting we knew that it would be a perfect fit. Carol was so sweet and fun to work with - and patient with us - the nervous couple. She was always very reassuring and she really delivered! Her musical knowledge and smooth music mixing was spot on. We gave her our list of songs and she played all of our music at the right times and the dance floor was packed throughout the evening. She filled in the song list perfectly. Also very important to us was that her announcements were very tasteful and articulate, not the typical DJ at the typical wedding.

We had Belado on guitar for our ceremony and cocktail and he was fantastic. What a musician! We took his creative ceremony suggestions and it was so beautiful. During our cocktail hour, many of our guests broke out into applause at the end of a tune.

Highly recommend!!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Carol from A Starry Night Music. We were able to request and recommend music that we wanted to hear at our event, and Carol expertly mixed our suggestions with some other songs that we didn't even think of. At one point during dinner, "Sailing" by Christopher Cross came on. This might not be a big deal to you, but this was right in line with the kind of music we had specifically asked for. I was moved to go over to Carol's booth and just give her heartfelt thanks for actually getting to know us through our suggestions. Such careful attention to detail, inspired musical choices, and professionalism. Thank you so much, Carol!

Carol & Beledo were fabulous. From the moment we met them we were impressed. They did exactly as we asked and provided advice where we needed it. Beledo's guitar playing was the perfect accompaniment for our outdoor garden wedding and cocktail hour and Carol as a DJ provided terrific music for the rest of the reception.
My husband says "Seamless! This duo did a great job! Very accommodating and professional. Thanks, guys!"
We have already recommended them to another couple who is getting married!

Choosing Carol as our DJ was the absolutely right decision. She was just wonderful. She made herself available for consultations beforehand whenever I wanted to talk to her (and suggested times to talk so that she could prepare well), she was extremely flexible and professional, her knowledge of music is extremely far-ranging, and she made it clear from the start that our opinions count. She also did a great job as a second (and free) wedding organizer, stepping into the chaos of our wedding and helping the official organizer move us around to where we needed to be, for photos, eating, and dancing. I only wish we had more time to dance (due to our own fault, we started later and had less time than planned), since everyone loved the music. We certainly did not want to leave the dancefloor, and I hope we will have another occasion to hire Carol for more celebrating!

Absolutely amazing, we can't say enough good things about DJ Carol.
She was truly a joy to work with, she put us at ease while we were planning. Every time we talked to her, the wedding seemed more manageable and like she would have everything under control.
On the actual day, she set the mood perfectly. We had given her a well curated list of songs to play that we were certain would get everyone dancing - but it was actually a song off the list that got everyone to get on the dance floor. She can really read and respond to a crowd and set the tone for the type of event you're looking for.
On the night of the wedding, there was a torrential downpour just as the reception was starting... For our lovely outdoor patio reception... Carol was set up in the corner under a tent and was getting completely soaked. The management was being less than helpful about rigging up a solution, but through it all, Carol was positive and upbeat and completely focused on the wedding and our reception (she was COMPLETELY soaked through all of this). The fact that she remained so positive infused the reception with a spirit of "this is fun and we are in it together" - we couldn't have asked for a better feeling to the night. She really went above and beyond and was so incredibly professional through all of it.
The pricing was extremely reasonable and she even gave us a 5th hour complimentary.
Absolutely amazing, we HIGHLY recommend her!!!
