On the Move was founded in 1993 by Darren Olarsch as an event production company specializing in entertainment. A pioneer in the entertainment industry, Olarsch previously founded a local firm in 1989 and expanded it into a widely successful nationwide entertainment company. It was then a logical progression into full service event production as On the Move Events matured. While the young companytook on more prominent clients, the needs and expectations of those clients helped refine On the Move’s distinguished skills.

Coinciding with the opening of On the Move, the company launched their acclaimed ‘Synergy’ concept, the industry’s first hybrid ensemble to seamlessly combine disc jockey’s with live musicians. Now almost 20 years later, with their flagship bands Winston’s Crew and Souled Out, On the Move’s live entertainment division has become a preferred resource of talent across the globe with many Fortune 500 companies and high profile individuals counted among their clientele.

I hired Winston's Crew (part of On the Move) for my wedding in the Hamptons this past June. I actually found the band online, via an exhaustive search of NY Magazine's top NYC wedding bands. Darren was an absolute pleasure to deal with and based on my initial conversation with him and a few of their YouTube videos, we decided to book them sight unseen. And they were FANTASTIC. Seriously fantastic. Winston's Crew pretty much made the wedding. I told Darren that our goal was to have everyone on the dance floor for the entire night and that is what they delivered. They also do an awesome job of playing current music / top 40 which is exactly what I wanted. Across the board consensus from the guests was that they were the best wedding band anyone had seen. Oh, we also added in a violin player which everyone loved. I would highly recommend. I would book Winston's Crew again in a heartbeat!

Working with On The Move for my wedding was an easy experience. Met with Darren, CEO, at his office to go over the options available to my wife and I. Darren was super helpful, attentive, responsive and was available throughout the entire process. He even showed up at our wedding venue to ensure everything was correct.

My wife and I chose Synergy and it was a great decision. The music was awesome and they interacted with our crowd on the dance floor which got everyone dancing.

Highly recommend On The Move for your next event!!!

Going into the planning process, we knew that music needed to be a priority. On The Move was recommended to us by a mutual friend and we could not have been more pleased. All of our guests could not stop complimenting us on the band and music at our wedding.
Darren was extremely responsive throughout the planning process and made sure that we got everything we wanted out of the ensemble. We were able to agree upon a budget and then fill in the elements to make sure we optimized the performance.
Because Synergy is a combination of a DJ and Band, our personal music tastes came through the entire set list.
If you want to make music a priority and have everyone on the dance floor at your wedding, look no further.
We highly recommend the percussionist and the sax.

Wow!!! That is the main word to use to describe a band like Winston’s Crew Collective. To say WCC is special would be a huge understatement. This band is incredible, outstanding, impressive, astonishing, and marvelous!! We couldn’t be more ecstatic that we had WCC play at our wedding. So many guests were blown away by their talent on our special day. Throughout the entire wedding and afterwards everyone kept saying how great our band was. We received so many text messages afterwards mentioning WCC. We would be remiss if we didn’t also mention Darren the President of On the Move Entertainment. He was awesome throughout the entire process. He is such an extremely cool guy and consummate professional. We also have to mention how talented Dannis is & how easily he could read the crowd. What an awesome bandleader! If you are in the process of looking for someone to play at your special event (especially your wedding) and have the opportunity to use WCC, you will be so glad you did so. A huge thank you to On the Move Entertainment and WCC for making our wedding at Guastavino's amazing!!

We used the Longchamps Guitar Duo for the dinner portion of our wedding. My husband and I were looking for a guitar band that can play relaxing, non-invasive music that wouldn't disrupt the dinner conversation – but that would also escalate towards the end of dinner to get our guests pumped up for the dancing portion (we had a DJ for the 2nd part of the night). Ray and Steve absolutely knocked it out of the ball park! We could not have been be happier with their performance. Their skill level is excellent – they’re both superb guitar players & singers and we thought the quality of sound was top notch. Plus, they executed our vision perfectly throughout the dinner (they started off with mellow, dinner conversation music – and progressively upped the intensity to faster, fan-favorite hits that got our guests fired up). They also did a great job with the song selection – they followed our vision very closely but also threw in a few of their own songs to match the mood of our guests. When you first look at their pre-determined song list, it may look like some of the songs are on the older side (70’s / 80’s) but they took our requests for recent hits and executed them perfectly. The highlight of the night for us was hearing them play “Sultan of Swings” by Dire Straits (it’s my dad’s favorite song and it had a special meaning to us all). Anyone that’s familiar with that song knows that it’s a TOUGH one to execute (especially the guitar interlude) and the guys absolutely nailed it! By the end of dinner our guests were asking if we could just keep Ray and Steve for the dancing portion as well – that’s how much everyone enjoyed their music. Overall, out of all the vendors we used for our wedding, the Longchamps surprised us to the upside the most – they were very easy to work with, incredibly professional and most importantly, very skilled. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for great live entertainment.

On the Move (and our emcee Joseph Zimmer) had our dance floor packed the Entire night. The combination of the dj and the three musicians (electric violin, percussion, and sax) really added a wonderful element. Highly recommend them.

They also provided the lighting for our ballroom which added a nice update to the traditional look of the ballroom.
