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.

Winston's Crew Collective was absolutely one of the best decisions we made for our Catskills' tented wedding 9/24/16. Their energy, professionalism and talent were incredible. The dance floor stayed packed the entire night and we are still getting compliments months later. We were also especially impressed with Dannis' beautiful voice and arrangement on the song we chose for our first dance (Coldplay's 'Til Kingdom Come). Give yourself one less decision to stress over -- WCC is the BEST.

We don't even know where to being...EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT! The band Synergy played our wedding in NYC, July 2016!

All of the musicians were out of this world!!! Everyone was so vibrant, energetic, professional and masterful in their execution! Oh and that first dance song!!!!! Everyone was soooo blown away, including Bryan and I as we were wrapped up in such an amazing moment of the night!

Truly a big thank you to your entire team to keeping along with the timeline and making the evening that much more seamless with such a natural flow. Everyone can't stop talking about how great the evening was laid out from the incredible Sax Solo while we enjoyed the entree to the seamless flow into each fun and energetic dance set!

Many of our guests are in the hospitality industry and everyone cannot stop raving about how incredible the band was! They truly made the night amazing and more than what we dreamed of! So many guests cannot stop mentioning they have never attended, seen, worked an event or wedding where the dance floor was so full all night!

Also, the Jazz Trio that played during cocktail hour did incredible with the hip-hop requests and people cannot stop bringing up how amazing and unique this piece was! So perfect!!

Thank you for putting this amazing band together for us and for being there to ensure everything was flawless! The entire night felt like a dream! Thank you for making that happen for us!

We highly recommend On The Move!

On The Move absolutely rocked our NYC wedding. Darren and Rocky wholeheartedly embraced our vision, theme and creative ideas - and took them to a whole new level. They totally BLEW. US. AWAY. They introduced us to our incredible band, Phyllisia & Beaute et Musique, who performed beautiful stripped down pop music during our ceremony and cocktail hour. They provided us the legendary New York drag queen Shequida, who brought the house down with her quick wit, hilarious performances and stunning operatic talents. They also rigged all the lighting in our venue (The Foundry, Long Island City) for an outdoor dinner for 100, and a dance floor meets laser show. It looked incredible. And finally, my husband and I performed a flash-mob style dance to Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” as our first dance. On The Move introduced us to two amazing dancers who choreographed the routine (and dressed as showgirl peacocks at the wedding) and coordinated our rehearsals with them. The crowd went wild. I can't recommend On The Move highly enough. They are absolute superstars and made our wedding the most memorable day of our lives. Thanks team!

Dannis and the rest of Winston's Crew Collective did an unbelievable job making our wedding come to life. The band was awesome, played all the songs we asked for, and kept our guests on their feet all night.

Darren was a pleasure to work with. We were very concerned about the acoustics at our venue, but with his help we brought in the right speakers and the guest could hear all the speeches and the music perfectly all night.

I would recommend On the Move and Winston's Crew to anyone for their wedding!

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!!

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!!!

Do it. Do it now. Stop reading this and book On The Move immediately. Why are you still reading this? Book them. The band is incredible and will entertain the pants off you and your guests. They let you choose as much or as little of your own music as you like, play everything you ask for, and let you specify any songs you specifically don't want to hear. For instance, I would have thrown the entire cake at them if I had to hear "Shut Up And Dance With Me" at my wedding because that song is trash. They didn't play it, and the cake wasn't thrown!
