Almost every guest I've spoken to has told me that our band was remarkable. This includes *****'s family, who loved the Hebrew music, and my grandparents, who almost exclaimed out-loud when they heard the Russian melody during the ceremony. The crowd on the dance floor spoke for itself.

I also really appreciate Michael's care in both preparation and supervision during the event. Working with Star Talent was a pleasure. Wish we had another occasion to hear the band coming up.

Michael at Star Talent was a pleasure to work with and extremely professional. When we initially met with Michael we were unsure about what type of music we wanted to use on our wedding day. During our meeting Michael shared videos of various artists that were available for our wedding day and we ended up using Rock & Pop strings for our ceremony and cocktail hour and the All Stars Band for our reception. Both groups were fabulous!! The Rock & Pop strings played for our guests prior to the ceremony starting (the guests loved the variety of music that they were able to play from the Beatles to Frankie Vally) and we were able to tailor our ceremony music for the flower girls / ring bearers, bridal party, and bride. They did a wonderful job. The All Stars Dance band were equally amazing. Guests were coming up to us on the dance floor to tell us how great they were! The group played a variety of music to keep everyone dancing and even learned Collide (by Howie Day) so that we could have it for our dance. We loved the music and highly recommend working with this vendor regardless of your music choice, they were a pleasure to work with and have amazing options to choose from.

The band exceeded my expectations!!! They were amazing!!! They played great songs, kept our guests dancing, and connected all the hearts of the crowd. We will remember the day forever, and part of it was the wonderful music and the friendly and outgoing musicians. Everyone kept asking who they were and raved about them. You are fantastic at what you do and had the best experience working with you. We hope to work with you in the future. Thank you doesn't quite express our gratitude. There are no words.

With love,
Daniela and Todd

Michael was so helpful with his tips and suggestions--he listened to what we wanted and made sure it happened.

The String Trio and DJ Phil made our wedding memorable. Our guests can't stop talking about the fantastic job of the String Trio and how much fun they had with the all the songs DJ Phil played.

We are so happy with Star Talent Inc.--everyone did an exceptional job.

We had the Hamptons Dream Party

Best music experience of all my recently married friends.

The best decision we made was to make sure our music was the best we could get and we were so right to book with Star Talent in NYC. We shopped a lot and we were ready to give up and get a DJ because there is no shortage of lame looking and sounding bands out there. Star Talent suited us perfectly from our first meeting with them. But they exceeded everything we envisioned.

We had their AWESOME Rock & Pop String Quartet for our ceremony and cocktail reception. Beautiful Music, Contemporary string group that set the tone the moment the guests arrived at the country club. The Ceremony was perfect and Big thanks to Michael for helping select a ceremony procession list that revealed our personalities. Our Cocktail hour had the strings playing our favorite performers and songs from Get Lucky to Clapton all in string quartet versions – just fantastic!!!!

The band was Star Talent’s Charles St Paul Band and they were THE BEST. Funky, Rock’in, Swing’in and Hot!!! Charles was super accommodating with some on the fly requests by my dad & our friends and family partied like we have never seen them before. I can’t believe a band like this only plays private parties because I would pay to go to a club to dance to them anytime. All our favorite songs were worked into their sets and our photos are fantastic because our guests were partying with them over on the bandstand.

Our experience with Star Talent was outstanding – our dealings with them showed an excellent blend of knowledge and advise… you can tell that they are a group of people, Michael Taylor and Charles and the performers that love making people happy on their big day and they certainly did with us!

Michael,

I must admit I was a bit apprehensive in the beginning of the process when we were deciding on which band to go with. Too us the band was one of the most import aspects of our wedding we wanted a fun, energetic, and overall great musicians. You put my mind at ease from the very first meeting; the process was smooth and enjoyable in finding the right band all the way down to the details of how the wedding timeline was created. I couldn’t have been happier with our selection of the Twilight Band. They were awesome, they kept the party going and the dance floor packed. We received so many compliments from our guests; with multiple guests wanting them for their own wedding or upcoming event. I can’t thank you enough Star Talent and the Twilight Band you were amazing!
Thanks Again,
Allison & Derek

What a great event! Star Talent really made the night so fun and memorable. The dance floor was packed-- The Twilight Dance Band took all my and my friends' requests. The strings were lovely and my friends & family all said they had never been to a more beautiful ceremony. The music selection was right on target, and all the musicians did a great job of setting the tone, and keeping the energy up all night. No one wanted to leave at the end of the night! I would definitely want to hear this band again soon.
The DJ for the afterparty was fantastic--all the songs were recognizable and mixed so well. They were completely professionals and a true pleasure to meet.

We hired two bands for our wedding reception through Start Talent Inc with Michael Taylor: Charles St. Paul and a Latin Trio. They were truly very talented bands, and although it proved tricky to alternate latin music with funk music throughout the night I commend the bands for having accomodated our requests to do so. I received many compliments on the quality of the bands and I would recommend them to anyone who wants truly talented band instead of the typical cheesy wedding bands.

I'm incredibly happy that we went with Michael Taylor at Star Talent! We knew that we wanted a band for our wedding, and Michael was willing to work with us on all fronts to make our wedding day incredibly special. We were in the process of deciding between Star Talent and Hank Lane, and we are incredibly glad that we went with Star Talent and the All Star Band.

During our initial meeting, the rep at Hank Lane ushered me out of the room in a hurry when I tried to negotiate the price, saying that they were the best, and that their price couldn't be beat. The thing that turned me off the most was that once we told him that we had decided to go with someone else, they tried to counter offer with a lower price. Uh... I thought they had given us their BEST offer??

From this whole wedding experience, I was definitely disgusted with how much of a money making cash cow weddings are for vendors. That Hank Lane showed their true colors was a big turnoff.

Back to Star Talent - not only did we save over $1,000 dollars AND an extra vocalist by going with them (we had a 9 piece band), but we received great service. In the days leading up to the wedding, we made a play and do-not-play list, which they kept to, and Michael Taylor was responsive and accommodating. The day of the wedding, he was at the reception the whole night to make sure everything went smoothly. Most importantly - the band was incredible!!! We had guests asking us who they were. They kept our guests on the dance floor all night long. When they played their last song, people were so upset! They were very good sports and played a couple more songs before closing out the evening.

They were worth every penny.
