Blair and his very qualified team have the best sound equipment I've ever heard! I was very picky about my music choices, not wanting to offend any of the wedding guests, and so chose each song individually. Blair was so gracious, kind, and patient, offering suggestions and calling my husband and I on the phone. During one of these calls, Blair made a custom mix of two pieces we really loved (one was a soundtrack orchestral piece from Father of the Bride) on the spot and played it for us. This was our grand entrance into the reception, appearing as Husband and Wife for the first time!! I so appreciated his knowledge of all types of music, his willingness to listen to my requests, his professionalism in his demeanor and attire at the reception...the list goes on and on! We were very pleased with his price, and he even threw in some fun lights on the dance floor, and brought a fabulously fun DJ friend who taught the guests to the Cha Cha Slide & some other group dances! There were maybe 5 people who didn't dance at my reception. There was salsa, a few slower pieces, pop, hip hop....And the mother-son/father-daughter dances were seamless. It was a BLAST!!!!!!!!!

Blair Silver was a fantastic DJ and master of ceremonies! He was professional, fun and really kept the party moving! He was really responsive to all of our needs and requests and had many helpful suggestions! He was very responsive to requests during the reception as well. He went through the entire program ahead of time with us so we had no worries-I never gave it a second thought and just enjoyed our evening! I would hire him again in a second for a party!

Blair performed and officiated at our wedding reception. We enjoyed his services far more than I had expected, or imagined how valuable they would be. He anticipated our pace of reception activity, making appropriate laudatory comments, introductions, and announcements. Blair set up toasts, introduced enjoyable group dancing, and in general provided continuity through the evening. His music CD selections were well received by all. Blair was professional in manner and dress, a complete joy and pleasure to have at our reception.

You cannot go wrong when you use Blair Silver and Company for your next event.
Blair was the MC/DJ at our wedding and he and his crew helped make our event just perfect.
His ability to keep things flowing and on schedule helped make everything work.
His choice of tunes is very wide, from the classics, to rock, even hip-hop and rap. He even was able to add some world music tunes that we had in mind to his library. Blair works with you to make your event special.
He and his team exceeded our expectations completely.
