We were truly blessed with the crew from Washington Talent. Everything they did made us feel relaxed, and that made the planning and event flawless!!

We hired the band Black Tie through Washington Talent and they were AMAZING! Our guests are still talking about how the band was one the best parts of our wedding! We are huge music lovers and not only did they learn any song we wanted them to learn for our first dance and for our ceremony, but they played some fun modern dance music as well and we never sat down. It was the best party! They have a great vibe and really make your wedding personal and special! Strickland was great to work with and the icing on the cake was when I needed help with my hair and bustle the band even helped with that right before we were introduced!! They went above and beyond and we could not have been happier! Thank you so, so much for making our wedding PERFECT and exactly what we wanted!! :)

There is absolutely no question that once you get through a wedding you realize how much money you have spent for one day of your life. But the truth is that this day will be one of the most memoriable days of your life, so you need to decide which things will make that day extra special. Without a doubt, the best decision we made was to use ONYX for our Band because they made our Wedding absolutely memorable.

From the moment we walked into our reception to the moment that we left, they provided an energy and an excitment that made the entire evening absolutely perfect. During the dinner (we had stations, which meant our guests were up and about), they played just the right amount of music in the background to keep the atmosphere lively, and once we finished our speeches and first dances, they brought it all up to a whole new level. My wife and I are not even dancers, and we did not leave the dance floor the entire evening. As one of my best friends said, "I danced more that night than I have my entire life!" In addition to them being fun, they are also extremely talented and will play any songs you want.

My wife and I cannot recommend this band enough!!!!

Spectrum was AMAZING. They did a great job MCing and choosing the right songs to perform. The got everyones names right, and really listened to all of our recommendations. They looked great, sounded great, and were very organized. All the members of the band are very talented. Our MC was just amazing. He got everyone on the dance floor and having a great time. I received endless comments at the end of the night about how wonderful the band was. THANK YOU SPECTRUM!!! I would definitely hire them again!

Onyx was RIDICULOUS!!! Seriously, they are the best wedding band we've ever seen. We knew it from the showcase we attended and there was no question we wanted them for our party. My husband and I agreed that the entertainment was one of the most important things for our wedding, and so we went all out to get these guys - and we're thrilled we did!!

David Cohen was super easy to work with - he was really responsive to all of our questions and needs, and he made fabulous suggestions. For example, he suggested a 20-30 minute dance party BEFORE dinner...that was one of the highlights our guests kept talking about. It set the stage for the night and we couldn't wait to get back out there! Everyone ate quickly so we could get the party started, and I think that party would have gone until 4 in the morning if it could. We had a packed dance floor for hours, and our guests are still raving about the band. Ginny was hilarious and such a firecracker, we really appreciated her energy and dynamic with the boys in the band. The MCs were awesome, and everyone just turned it up. There was a whole lot of sweaty, and it was perfection.

We also used a couple of members for our ceremony music - we had a few odd choices for songs and did not go the traditional route, but they learned the music and provided fabulous music for the momentous occasion.

We would absolutely give Onyx the highest recommendation. If you want a party, pick these guys. We had the party of the year for sure and we want to do it all over again! We hope we can attend another event where they star, because we'd love to see them again. We love you guys!!! Thanks for making it the best wedding ever!

We had a wonderful experience with Black Tie. I spoke with Strickland about a week before the wedding to smooth over the last minute details. He also met with my sister about a month before the wedding so they could rehearse a song that she was going to sing at the wedding. Strickland and the band were very accommodating. For the Father/ Daughter dance, I asked for a slower version of Brown Eyed Girl, along with a lyric change to make it more appropriate for the situation. Their version was absolutely amazing... I wish I had a recording of it. After that, the band played the rest of the night. They were amazing! Their energy level was so high and they played such fun music. Everyone was especially impressed by their dance moves! I would very highly recommend Black Tie!!!

We booked Onyx through Washington Talent Agency for our wedding band and Da Vinci Strings through Washington Talent Agency for our ceremony musicians. From the beginning, Washington Talent Agency has been incredibly responsive and helpful in answering all of our questions and was very quick to respond to e-mails. We attended a "showcase" to check out Onyx before going through the booking process and we were immediately sold! The band had so much energy and they sound AWESOME. David, the band leader, was great about answering e-mails and offered advice as to scheduling, etc. but was totally open to whatever we wanted to do. In addition, the band learned three songs for us (including our first dance song), which weren't on the band's playlist, and they came out perfect. The night of the wedding, the band sounded absolutely amazing!!! They completely made the night. They played music that appealed to every age group we had at the wedding and our family and friends were raving about how much fun they had on the dance floor. Onyx was also great about checking in with us (the bride and groom) to make sure that everything was going okay throughout the night. We would HIGHLY recommend Onyx to anyone!!! Such a fun band. Turning now to Da Vinci Strings, we really enjoyed working with Fred. He was so accommodating about learning new songs for us (we wanted all contemporary ceremony music) and we got so many compliments on how wonderful the string music sounded. It was absolutely perfect. We would also highly recommend Da Vinci Strings.

Washington Talent Agency helped make a stressful decision super fun. Finding a band for your wedding can be difficult- you don't want corny or ordinary and you want everyone to dance! We were searching and trying to schedule previews with so many different bands. Finally, a seasoned bridesmaid friend of mine suggested Washington Talent Agency. She had been to multiple weddings with different bands from this agency and they all were fantastic. We looked online and were immediately drawn to Spectrum. Washington Talent has showcases for each of their bands once a month where you are invited to go to the studio and the band of your choice plays a montage of their music and performs like they would at your wedding. IT WAS SO FUN! within 2 seconds we were sold. I'm not exaggerating. The band reached out to us a few weeks before the wedding to get a better understanding of what kind of sound we wanted on our day. They learned a few songs my husband really wanted to hear and they rocked them. We are still talking about them a few weeks later. They were so sweet and so much fun. Rave reviews from all kinds of guests. Our dance floor was overflowing all night. This band is awesome I cannot say it enough. BOOK THEM! Worth every penny. I can't wait for an excuse to throw a great party- I will definitely hire again.

We had Black Tie at our wedding after seeing them at a friend's wedding. Our guests CONTINUE to ask who our band was and were blown away by how amazing they were! The band was so flexible and responsive to our needs. They even did a special father-daughter dance to Thriller upon request :). HIGHLY recommended - best band I've ever experienced at a wedding. Completely professional, talented, and personable.

We were SO lucky to have Spectrum as the band for our wedding day!! Spectrum was recommended to us by another friend and boy, they were absolutely awesome. They really got the party started but before that, played very nice, appropriate dinner music while everyone ate during the reception. I had people tell me how wonderful they were during dinner and I told people that they hadn't seen anything yet! The Band rocked our wedding and all of our guests said they had the best time and this was the best wedding band that they had heard. At the end of our night, all of our guests were yelling 'One more song' to the band so that they would keep playing...my husband and I loved it! Washington Talent Agency was easy to work with and Ben, the person from the band that we communicated with, was wonderful to work with. Ben really listened to us on what type of vibe we were going for and what our must-hear songs were. We were very impressed with how professional they were! I would absolutely recommend Spectrum for any event, especially a wedding! They were awesome!

I had people tell me how wonderful they were during dinner and I told people that they hadn't seen anything yet! The Band rocked our wedding and all of our guests said they had the best time and this was the best wedding band that they had heard. At the end of our night, all of our guests were yelling 'One more song' to the band so that they would keep playing...my husband and I loved it! Washington Talent Agency was easy to work with and Ben, the person from the band that we communicated with, was wonderful to work with. Ben really listened to us on what type of vibe we were going for and what our must-hear songs were. We were very impressed with how professional they were! I would absolutely recommend Spectrum for any event, especially a wedding! They were awesome! Read less

We can’t thank Onyx enough for making our wedding reception the most perfect night! I first found out about Onyx when they performed at my cousin’s wedding 5 years ago. It was the best wedding reception and I knew I had to have them perform at my wedding.

David Cohen is the Onyx Band Manager (also plays in the band) and did a wonderful job creating the timeline of our reception. I had no idea where to even start but he took care of it all!

Onyx created an environment in which everyone felt comfortable dancing and let me reassure you, EVERYONE was on the dance floor! All of our guests told us how amazing they were and it was the best wedding reception they had ever been to. All the band members were wonderful to work with and are all so talented with the most incredible voices. Now that I think about it, I honestly do not even remember them taking a break the entire night.

My photographer was very impressed as well and wrote in his blog “fueled on by the the absolutely airtight party band Onyx this may just be the most fun we’ve had at a reception yet.”

Onyx is the best of the best and we highly recommend to all of our family and friends. It was the most amazing celebration and an incredible night thanks to Onyx.

SPECTRUM Band - This band was fantastic! The dance floor was full of our guests dancing all the time. My sister said she couldn't sit still with the great music and that is the way I felt. As mother of the bride and hostess I should have been intentionally going around visiting with people, but instead I was on the dance floor most of the night! My daughter the bride had asked Spectrum to learn a couple songs that were not on their play list and they happily did that as well. They had a great sound, great beat, great enthusiasm and they are nice too! I give the very highest recommendation to Spectrum for any one who wants a super band.

My husband and I used Spectrum for our wedding on the 26th of April and they were amazing. They far surpassed any expectation we had. They worked closely with us to learn all of the songs we needed to hear including an amazing mash up of some of my husbands favorite college songs. I would highly recommend the band Spectrum to anyone. They made our wedding the most entertaining, fun, and exciting day of our lives. Our guests were on the dance floor the whole night and the party never stopped. People have not stopped raving about how amazing they are. I can not say enough things about how great my experience with Washington Talent Agency, specifically the band Spectrum has been. We are trying to find a way to use them again soon!

The band Spectrum rocked our wedding at The Homestead resort in Hot Springs, Virginia on April 12, 2014. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Spectrum's rousing energy, optimal song selection, and exceptional sound quality had all of our guests out on the dance floor. Everyone from ages 3 to 86 was entertained. Spectrum kept the energy flowing while keeping true to the sentiment of the occasion. Our guests continue to compliment our selection in the band Spectrum.

Ben Kauffman (keyboard/bassist of Spectrum) was easy to work with, completely understood what style of music we wanted and delivered on his promises. The band learned our first dance song (Berlin's Take My Breath Away) and performed it to perfection. Spectrum's performance of the Havah Nagila resulted in one of the best hora's our family has experienced in years. They helped guide the wedding events and traditions flawlessly, easily adjusting to changes in the planned schedule. I highly recommend Spectrum for any occasion, especially a wedding celebration.

We are so pleased with how our wedding video came together. We were so grateful to have Jeff as our videographer and his talent and expertise became apparent through the videos. He truly did a phenomenal job capturing each moment especially the challenging ones (ie, the hora, chuppah, just straight dancing scenes). We noticed all the details and we thank him and the group for giving us memories forever.

DJ or MC (as they are sometimes called) Justin from Washington Talent is the PERFECT choice if you are looking for a young, FUN, but very professional DJ! From the first time he called me, to the moment he said goodbye at the end of the wedding reception, he was the most ENTHUSIASTIC DJ we could have asked for! He will meet with you nearly any time, any place to plan your party. He is happy to guide you plan your party with his experience and knowledge, we depended on him for this! He knows how to keep a party going, always remaining professional! This is not your boring stand in the corner DJ, this is a happy, never obnoxious, MC! If you are looking for the kind of DJ/MC who really knows what he is doing, knows how to REALLY keep a party going, listens to what you want your party to be like and follows through with ALL of it, Justin is IT!!!!

PHOTOGRAPHY!!! The most important thing is to have a GREAT photographer! David Hartzman came HIGHLY recommended to me by other wedding vendors! I COULD NOT be happier that I took the advice of those other vendors! David is the COMPLETE package when it comes to photography! He is professional, enthusiastic, friendly, but MOST important of all, he is talented WAY BEYOND his years! I could give my praises of David all day long, but I feel the more important praise came from my videographer (who had never worked with David) who took the time to send an email to Washington Talent to tell them how AMAZING David is! If you are looking for a TRULY talented photographer, hire David Hartzman. You will NOT be disappointed!!

We were assigned Yossi May as our wedding photographer. This was a second marriage for both of us and we were having an intimate wedding with only our immediate family and closest friends. We couldn't be more pleased with the entire experience. His creativity exceeded our expectations and he had a great way of making us feel completely at ease with the portrait part of the process. He captured so many exceptionally special moments at the ceremony and the reception that we have so many amazing candid shots - its hard to choose just a few to frame. We loved him so much, we are using him for our son's bar mitzvah later in the year! Thank you! All our best, Lisa and Larry

We had Brian Violett as DJ for our wedding on April 5, at the WIllard Intercontinental in Washington DC. Our group was small 61 people. We got to our wedding dance around 8:45 PM, and Brian kept the dance floor full until the end of the evening at 11:00. He read the audience (mostly 40's and 50's couples) and played just the right mix. All of our guests have been very complimentary.
Brian was easy to work with, and very responsive. I would also say that Marc Wilner and the team at Washington Talent Agency were great to deal with -- listened to what we were trying to do, recommended Brian, and made the entire process smooth and easy.

Not living in DC area, I had my sister (maid of honor) check out a few bands for me. After seeing a handful of bands she really felt that Spectrum was the strongest option. We booked with them and after our wedding we have absolutely no regrets and couldn't be happier with the results. They were extremely accommodating and played everything we asked them too- even a great cover of our wedding song. They kept our guests entertained and on the dance floor the whole night and people could not stop raving about how amazing the band was. We were initially concerned about the expense of having a band but definitively feel the value and experience was well worth it. If you are looking for a band in the dc area I highly recommend Spectrum.

The paired me with DJ Kaki- she was fantastic! I gave her an eclectic list of suggested songs to play for our wedding reception. She read the crowd perfectly and was able to play most of them. All our guests, including me, had so much fun dancing,,, everything from old rock, salsa, oldies, line dancing, hip-hop, to some country music. DJ Kaki was professional and fun to work with with! She even sent me some short video clips that she took of everyone dancing at the reception. Definitely recommend!

Black Tie is amazing! Wedding guests are still RAVING about how great the band was: the energy, song selection, professionalism behind the scenes... just above and beyond impressive from every aspect! We had an outstanding experience through and through. Strickland was a joy to work with- they learned songs just for us and really customized the night to make it special for US. Black Tie listened to our requests for songs to play and those to steer clear of, communicated throughout the evening, and the send off was spectacular! Jami is a STAR... her vocals {WOW} took everyone's breath away, the performance and style of each band member was extremely unique and kept guests on the dance floor all night. I could go on and on about the TOP NOTCH service and experience we had at our January wedding in Richmond, Va. Book this band and you will agree, they were worth every penny spent! Thank you, Black Tie for helping make our night unforgettable. Xo, Jane & Brandon

We had a unique situation for our ceremony. We got married at our remote cabin in West Virginia. The cabin was a total renovation prior to the wedding. We were literally finishing up painting and putting doors on the kitchen cabinets right before the ceremony. I say all that because photographerJack Hartzmann jumped in and started helping us by installing the cabinet doors. he also suggested that we start with a photography reveal before the guests arrived. in the Christian tradition, I was always taught that the groom should not see his bride before the ceremony. Jack strongly suggested that we start with photos ahead of time, and I took his expert advice. It was the best thing because we were able to get a ton more photos and get to our reception a lot faster because we didn't have to wait to finish the photos. Additionally it allowed us to exciting reveals: one was at the photography reveal and then the second one as I walked down the aisle. It was absolutely magical. our pictures are stunning and we are so glad we chose Jack and Monica to take our pictures.

The dance floor was filled all night. Everybody commented on how great the music was. If there was a rating higher than FIVE I would give it! My daughter had a special request for the band....she wanted to sing to her new husband. She had classical vocal training but the groom had never heard her sing before. So they provided a very special highlight during the reception for her. It was a great moment! I would highly recommend Onyx for anyone that wants to have a great party!

They are extremely talented and made our wedding so much fun! It was a great party and full of energy thanks to them! They also play the whole reception without breaks which was great! Their "studio-set" during dinner was very cool. I loved everything about them and would definitely recommend them to anyone in the future!!!!

Spectrum was absolutely incredible. They provided so much energy, played non-stop dance music, and had everyone on the dance floor. To top things off, at the end, none of the guests wanted them to stop. Everyone wanted to party with Spectrum all night long. If you are looking for a band with exceptional energy, and high energy dance music with all of today's hot dance tracks, then Spectrum is the band for you. They are also not so shabby when it comes to traditional Jewish music. Love them, and they made the wedding what it was, the wedding of the year!!!

We went through Washington Talent Agency and chose Prime Time as the band for our reception. It was a fantastic decision! Our wedding was in Cape May, NJ and they traveled up there and were absolutely fantastic. We had family from Brazil and all across the US, all age groups, and backgrounds attend, and everyone could not stop talking about how great the band was. They were great to work with and were energetic throughout the entire night. We would recommend Prime Time to any of our friends.

Spectrum was such an amazing band! They truly took our wedding celebration over the top and there was absolutely nothing more we could have asked for of them. Ben was so helpful, responsive and accommodating throughout the entire planning process and the entire band even adapted to last minute changes right up to the reception and even throughout.

They learned new songs that we requested for our reception and played our ceremony music perfectly and beautifully. Spectrum kept all of our guests dancing all night, that at the end everyone actually began chanting "one more song!"...it was incredible, no one wanted them to stop playing! I still receive compliments today and it's already been a month since the wedding. Thank you Spectrum for helping to make our wedding everything we wanted and more!

Photography: David and his team were fantastic. It is so important that you are comfortable with your photographer...they are with you all day!! And boy did I love this team!! They kept the nerves at bay, kept me relaxed and smiling, and handled my bridal party perfectly. I cannot wait to get my wedding albums and present one to my parents...we will cheerish these pictures forever, and I am so grateful for all the effort and love they put into making sure every shot was perfect!!

DJ: Marc Wilner is a true professional. From making recommendations during the planning, to keeping everything on schedule and moving smoothly the night of - you really can't find a better DJ than Marc!! His mucis selections were just what we wanted, and we've received many compliments on both the dinner selections and the dance music!! And Marc checked with us before some key moments to make sure we were ready which I really appreciated. But he knew when to just take over and make things happen so that we could enjoy our night. Everyone was having such a great time that we extending the event for an hour and Marc accomodated this request without batting an eye...he's the best!!

I know everyone thinks their wedding was the best. I will tell you this, Spectrum made our night awesome. I've been to several dozen weddings in the past 7-8 years and they by far Rocked The House!.

The quality of music, song selection, and level of energy were all fantastic .I know that is a moment that we will never forget. We were thrilled with the way the band read the crowd! They played so many favorites and we are especially grateful that for their cover of Damian Marley's "And Be Loved".

I couldn't have imagined a better band. Thanks Again!

We had Black Tie play at our wedding and WOW what an amazing decision that was. We gave Strick one instruction and that was we wanted everyone dancing ALL NIGHT long. The dance floor was packed the entire night!! Everyone kept coming up to us and saying how amazing the band was and asking where we found them. We requested some "old school" rap songs, as our friends love to get down to some 80's and 90's rap music, and the band played an AMAZING set filled with beat boxing and awesome songs I've never heard any band play live. It could have honestly been mistaken for the real tracks.

We were debating between hiring a band and a DJ as neither my husband and I are into that typical "wedding music" you usually hear from bands. Black Tie made sure to listen to our requests and played to us and the crowd better than we could have expected. We knew they would be great after watching their showcase, but they exceeded all our expectations. I'm pretty sure I drunkly thanked them a million times during the reception for making our wedding so memorable and for giving us and our guests one of the best nights of our lives.

I couldn't rave enough about this band. I wish we could do it all over again!!!

Black Tie was our wedding band (October 26, 2013). They had us dancing from the very beginning to the very end. Our guests could not stop talking about how amazing our band was and how they had never been to a wedding that had such incredible music and talent!! They all said that they had never danced so much at a wedding before! The band's voices are amazing and the band members are really wonderful people - Jami is an absolute sweetheart and Strickland is very accommodating and responsive. Black Tie literally made our wedding the most fun wedding I've ever been to and I was so excited that it was my wedding!

We used the band "Prime Tine" and photographer Monica Vidal and we were extremely happy with both of them. The band MADE the party! They played amazing music (including any special requests we asked them to play) and all of our guests were raving about them. They were out in the crowd being interactive and having a great time. They were amazing! And Katie is a phenomenal singer!! Monica, our photographer was also amazing. She is very easy to work with and takes amazing pictures. It is so nice to have great vendors to work with and also who know each other and can work together well. It was the best day of our lives and the band and photographer are two of the most important vendors, in my eyes.

We chose the band SPECTRUM from the Washington Talent Agency. They played during our cocktail hour and reception. What a fantastic band! I have been to dozens of weddings as a guest and our number one priority was to find a quality band. Spectrum delivered in every respect. They are extremely talented, but importantly, fun. They were very flexible and accommodating to our requests for a couple songs not listed on their playlist. We could have not been happier with them. They are not the cheapest band in the area, but quality does not come cheap - they were worth every penny.

ONYX was outstanding! All night long, our guest kept asking "where did you find this band? Typically ONYX is an 8 piece band but because my daughter was married on a Friday and the venue said we could only have up to a five pierce band, they accommodated us. I just can imagine what they would do and sound like with all eight of them! They kept our guest engaged all night and intermingled with the crowd. I typically don't dance at weddings, but I didn't sit down all night. It was truly a magical night. My daughter and her new husband could not have been happier with their choice. If you are looking for a exceptional experience, ONYX is the band you want. Sincerely, Barb

As the British Mother of the Groom at my son's wedding in Baltimore last month, I must write on behalf of the wedding guests to say that the group ENCORE were amazing. The musicianship was of the highest level from all the instrumentalists - the inclusion of the saxophone really enhanced the overall sound, and the three singers produced sublime performances apparently effortlessly for well over 3 hours. I never usually enjoy a group as much as a disco at weddings, as I prefer the recorded original rather than a live reproduction but in this case I was truly proved wrong. ENCORE produced exceptional and highly original interpretations of standards from the 60's and Neil Diamond right up to the present day and Lady Gaga, and whilst this may be the norm for wedding bands in the US, us Brits found the interaction of the singers by mingling and dancing with the guests very entertaining. The dance floor was never empty of the mixed generations of guests, giving a clear indictment of the quality and pulling power of ENCORE. We only wish that they could be booked for our other son's wedding next year in the UK.

Infusion ROCKED it at our wedding (9/14/13). I come from a family of dancers (not professional, more the "get a couple in me and I'll show you what I got" type of dancers). Nita and the rest of the band members were energetic, fun, and really responsive to the mood in the room. They really played to the crowd. All biases aside, I do believe Infusion is one of the best bands around. I can't tell you how many of my family members and friends have commented on how great they were. Nita and the rest of the WTA crew were really helpful prior to the big day as well. I honestly can't recommend them enough.

Onyx was our wedding band and they were fabulous!! They were SO attentive to what we wanted and read the crowd very well. We met with the David, the band manager, a few weeks before the wedding to go over what we liked, didnt like, wanted, etc. The band made sure to honor all of our requests and kept us in the loop for the flow of the night. They also made sure my husband and I were okay with any requests made by the guests (for example, a friend who is a wedding singer in NYC requested to sing and they made sure that was okay with us first) and were so nice about everything. The dance floor was packed all night long with a range of guests - from groups of single guys, to couples, to our parents and their friends. Music was one of our top priorities, and I could not have been happier - Onyx did an amazing job.

I was married on 8/31/13, and Spectrum was my band. They were absolutely incredible! The bandleader was so easy to work with, and replied to emails and phone calls within hours. They played the songs we requested brilliantly, and everyone commented to me, my husband, and our parents on how wonderful they were. Spectrum is a super high-energy band, and they know how to read and work a crowd! The music they provided during dinner was appropriate in both style and volume, and the music for the reception was a solid mix of current pop/rock and ballads, and older classics. I would recommend Spectrum to anyone looking for a band for their wedding. Wow. Amazing.

Before selecting Onyx for our own wedding, we had seen them perform at a friend's wedding and were wowed by their performance and how they interacted so energetically with the crowd. We were not disappointed one bit at our own wedding reception. Planning in advance with David, their manager, by phone and email was such a pleasant and easy experience, and he was very professional and knowledgable. You could tell they had this down to a science, and David had some helpful recommendations about things I hadn't even thought of! They are definitely on the pricier side; however, they were willing to learn a new song for our first dance with only a few weeks' notice. Their female lead singer was a delight to work with as well, and she checked in with me often throughout the reception as she worked with our venue coordinator to be sure that both the groom and I were always ready for all of the events of the night, such as special dances, speeches, announcement of the cake cutting, etc. They have an extensive and well-rounded song list that pleased all varieties of our guests, without us having to take the time to select an entire playlist ourselves. We could not have been happier and would wholeheartedly recommend Onyx to others.

This review is for our dj, Marc.

Upon meeting Marc, we felt completely assured that he has the experience and confidence to create a wonderful and non-stop musical atmosphere for our wedding ceremony and reception. Marc provided suggestions for ceremony and reception music, which allowed us to create a more personalized event. With Marc’s guidance, we picked out a few classic pieces for our ceremony processional. Our guests commented that our ceremony music was clever and unique. He was very responsive through email and phone, and always made us feel as though we were his priority. He kept the reception running smoothly and the dance floor was packed until the very last song. His suggestions regarding the timeline were helpful and right-on. Marc helped coordinate events during the reception, like the cake cutting and the hora. He seamlessly mixed the songs we requested (including the bride’s college fight song) with those he knew would keep the party going. Working with Marc was easy and he decreased our stress. He was responsible, reliable, accommodating, professional, and we highly recommend his services.

When I read these type of reviews myself, I always wonder if people are getting paid to write them, but I assure you that I am not. We hired Millennium to play at our wedding, and it was all anybody was talking about the next day. They brought SO much energy and there was never a break or a lull in the music for over four hours! During dinner, they serenaded us with acoustic jams, and then they lit it up and played hits that are currently on the radio (ie. Daft Punk), which all of our guests loved, as well as throw backs.

When I read these type of reviews myself, I always wonder if people are getting paid to write them, but I assure you that I am not. We hired Millennium to play at our wedding, and it was all anybody was talking about the next day. They brought SO much energy and there was never a break or a lull in the music for over four hours! During dinner, they serenaded us with acoustic jams, and then they lit it up and played hits that are currently on the radio (ie. Daft Punk), which all of our guests loved, as well as throw backs.

Washington Talent is AMAZING. We had Marc as our DJ, Monica & Jack as our photographers and Dave as our videographer. All were outstanding. Marc had everyone dancing all night long! It was unbelievable. Jack & Monica went above and beyond - they took the most amazing pictures. We LOVE LOVE all of them! We can not wait to see the video. It's a true group of professionals - flexible, enthusiastic and a lot of fun. I highly recommend them for any event. They made our wedding night absolutely perfect.

Spectrum is phenomenal in talent and exceptional in value. Our wedding included guests from 3 to 93. The vocals and musicians were sensational. Many of the songs sounded exactly like the original, in some cases better… and if it wasn’t exactly like the original they had their own arrangement that complemented the band’s talent. Acting as Master of Ceremony for the wedding announcements, Spectrum was professional, warm and full of energy. The band played for four solid hours and had the dance floor packed when the lights were turned up and the tables were being cleared at the end of the night. To the chant of “one more song” the band performed one more of their solid repertoire to end the night. The bands interaction with the guests got everyone on the floor young and old. Great job.

Black Tie was incredible! We had hired them for our wedding after viewing their showcase in Rockville. We feel so fortunate to have worked with them for our wedding and the compliments keep flowing in. Our guests couldn't believe they were singing live, that's how good they were. They were completely sensitive to volume throughout the wedding and even checked in with the parents to make sure the level of sound was ok. Hiring Black Tie was stress free and we knew they would knock it out of the park with very little direction from us. Thank you a million times over to Strick and the rest of the band for making our wedding incredible!

Washington Talent was absolutely perfect to work with for our June 22, 2013 wedding in Annapolis, MD. Shana was my event consultant and she was very helpful and easy to work with. We booked the band Spectrum and lighting through Washington Talent. Spectrum was amazing!! Ben, the band leader, and his team were incredible! The dance floor was packed the entire night! Spectrum does not take a break and they played through dinner. The tone and song selection of the dinner music could not have been more perfect. Throughout the evening they played such a wide variety of songs from Van Morrison, Prince, Marvin Gaye, Springsteen, to Jay-Z and they played them all extremely well! We extended the band to play an extra 30 minutes prior to the wedding and I wished we would have extended them a full hour. I am still getting compliments on how awesome the band was. I seriously can't say enough good things about how great Spectrum is. Music was something that was very important to us and we had high expectations but Spectrum exceeded all of them. Several of our engaged friends came up to the band after the wedding to tell them how great they were and how they hope to be able to book them for their weddings. I really hope we get to enjoy Spectrum again.

We went to see several bands that WashingtonTalent Agency had to offer and were instantly drawn to Onyx. Their ability to play a wide range of music and engage the crowd set them apart. We couldn't have been happier with our selection. Onyx performed amazingly and really was the highlight of the reception. They played low key music throughout dinner to keep people occupied. After dinner, they played continuously and read the crowd to keep everyone's energy up. The dance floor was packed from beginning to end. I can't say enough about Onyx, if they are available on your wedding date - sign them now. You will not be disappointed.

He was able to keep up when our families sprung surprise a ZZ Top appearance and a musical number on him!!!! Everyone was commenting on how wonderful he was, even our grandmothers!!!!

They read the crowd so well and even picked up on a reference in my brother's speech and surprised everyone by playing it later in the night . Strickland was totally responsive, professional, and calm. Thanks Black Tie!

The best decision we made for our wedding was having Onyx play for the reception! Onyx did such an incredible job! I was completely taken back by their musical selection and absolute talent! They not only played great songs but they also kept the party moving along with our timeline. They were very attentive to our guests as well as to me and my husband and kept us informed of the progress at all stages. We had a stage set up for them, however, they spend the whole night in the middle of the dance floor singing and dancing with us, keeping everyone excited and dancing! It was great! Everyone had a blast and loved it! Guests were taking down Onyx's information for their own events and haven't stopped talking about them! Onyx definitely exceeded our expectations and I can't wait for the next event I have to use them again!!!!

ONYX was absolutely fantastic and helped make our wedding perfect. Ours was a second wedding, with guests of all ages – ranging from those in their 20’s (our kids friends and friends kids) as well as those in their 40’s 50’s and 60’s (as well as a handful in their 70’s and 80’s). ONYX played a perfect mix of great music which was enjoyed by all. Their talent, professionalism, high energy and enthusiasm make them the consummate wedding band. They had the dance floor packed all night, which was exactly what we had hoped for. Everyone commented on how fabulous the band was and how much fun they had dancing to their music.

In addition to the party music, three of the band members (Dave, Fred and Drew) provided beautiful music for our ceremony. They also accompanied two other singers we hired for the ceremony and were flexible and accommodating in scheduling a rehearsal with them and in learning the music for the songs we chose.

And, if all that were not enough, Dave went above and beyond the call of duty by learning a Dave Koz song we had mentioned was special to us – and found a soprano sax to play it on!

We knew that the band was the key to a great party and ONYX certainly delivered!

We hired Spectrum for our wedding band and could not have been more excited about our decision! Getting a wedding band is an investment for sure, but these guys were worth every single penny. They were super organized from beginning to end, George even double checked with us before the wedding party was announced that he had all the name pronunciations correct, and he made sure that everybody was lined up in order. They learned our first dance song, and exceeded our expectations on the performance. The dance floor was PACKED all night, and nobody wanted the reception to end! Guests have been telling us that they are the best wedding band they've ever heard, and it was the most fun reception they had ever attended. If you want a fun and memorable wedding reception, hire Spectrum - you will not be disappointed!!! (no, they did not pay me to write this!)

Hiring Onyx was the best decision I made during the entire wedding-planning process, and any bride knows that is saying a lot seeing as there are TONS of decisions to make. They were amazing. So high-energy the entire time, they really kept the dance floor packed. I am amazed that they were able to play for that long without taking a break. And they interacted with the crowd in a way that was fun! I received so many compliments, and too many people to count said Onyx was the best wedding band they had ever seen. And I think it's a true testament to how great they were that my friends who are getting married next year wanted to hire them on the spot (I saw them talking to the band at the end of the ceremony)! I really cannot praise them enough. They even learned a new song for me and performed it flawlessly. David was also incredibly helpful during the planning process, and made great suggestions on the flow of the evening. They truly made my whole wedding and were worth every single penny.

"Best Band Ever " was a phrase heard many times...they really made the wedding reception a party !!...would highly recommend them.

We worked with DJ Lance and just loved him. We had many musical needs to accommodate at our wedding and reception. We are a little Mumford and Sons, a little Icona Pop, a little Juan Luis Guerra, a lot of Rolling Stones, and a bit of hava nagila all in one wedding. We wanted latin music, dance music and old school jams, and plenty of tunes we knew we DIDN'T want (Macarena, I'm looking at you).

DJ Lance met with us before the wedding to get a flavor for who we were and what we wanted. He provided music during our cocktail hour and dinner, and kept the dance floor full for the duration of the reception. He was very good at pacing the evening, and more than a few people told us that they'd never seen a dance floor so full all night. We danced the whole night except for a brief moment to cut the cake. He was great.

Washington Talent Agency made it so easy to hire a band. I really didn't think it would fit into our budget, but after some prompting from my mom we decided to look. They made the process of hiring a band such so easy. WTA has multiple bands to choose from and even came to our home in Baltimore to help us choose. The final decision wasn't hard. Once we went to their Rockville Studio to here Primetime, we were sold.
WE LOVE PRIMETIME! From the first time we heard them, we knew that they would be the band to get people on the dance floor and we weren't let down. They even had my 90 year old grandmother dancing for most of the night. They played a variety of songs and really read the crowd. I had a blast singing with Katie (She is awesome!) I know that bands can be a splurge, but Prime time was so worth it. They really set the tone for the party and my guests could not stop talking about how much they enjoyed the music! If your on the fence... definitely go for Primetime!
Koli did an amazing job during our ceremony. We heard him on our preview night, and I knew I wanted him to play as I walked down the aisle. It was the background music to such as special moment.

We were on a short time frame with only 2 months to plan and Washington Talent Agency was very accommodating. They let us know available bands and prices quickly. We selected Onyx and were so pleased. They made our day very special with their attention to detail in planning song choices and timing. The band members were very attentive and personalized their performance. We are very grateful to them for helping to make our day.

We cannot recommend Encore enough! Don and his band kept the party going all night long. We had more than a few people tell us they were dancing all night or they had never seen so many people on the dance floor for so long.

We talked to Don a few times before the wedding to iron out all the details and he and the band nailed everything at the reception. They learned our first dance song and our first upbeat song of the night and even broke out an impromptu rendition of "Gangnam Style" upon request.

Each of the band's sets was better than the last, and Will and LC were consistently out in the crowd making sure everyone was having fun. We only gave the band some broad instructions on what kind of party we wanted and what kind of songs we wanted to hear, and they delivered beyond our expectations.

Our wedding day was magical; having Encore play ensured we enjoyed it!

We could not have had a better experience with Washington Talent. Marc was a fantastic DJ who met all of our requests. Jack Hartzman and his crew produced gorgeous pictures and spent the whole day with us, start to finish..from 10 AM in the morning to 10 AM at night. Knowing Marc and Jack had things under control gave us one less thing to worry about that day. You can't go wrong with anyone you contract through Washington Talent.

Wow! MILLENNIUM was phenomenal at our recent wedding!!!

The venue and the band were the two most important things for us when planning our wedding and after lots of research we decided to go to MILLENNIUM’s showcase. We had signed up for other showcases but within minutes of watching them, we knew we found our band! For our first dance, I wanted a particular version of a song, and they completely nailed it. And once the dinner ended and music started, they were nonstop and had everyone dancing the whole time! Everyone keeps telling me how great they were and one guest even said she was looking for them online because she wanted to go see them perform again! I think a band is such a huge part of a fun reception and we had such a blast .. we can’t thank MILLENNIUM enough!

The band "Spectrum " performed at our wedding, and it totally made the evening. They are very talented, fun, professional, and really kept the party going. Everyone loved it and we didn't want the night to end. We even had a special request which required working with the band ahead of time, and they executed it beautifully. I give this performance a 10 out of 10.

Our daughter's wedding reception was at the BMI in Baltimore. At first we weren't sure about a band vs. A DJ because of the expense. We are so glad we took the leap and hired Spectrum Band. The bandleader and band members were absolutely fantastic. They worked well with our caterer and kept everything running smoothly. Our guests had a great time dancing and singing along with the band. We felt very comfortable with them, like we had known them forever. We love Spectrum. Thanks so much for celebrating with us and making the day so special!

Onyx blew us away from our first dance(311-love song) to our final ending song(the cranberries-linger). every requested song they made perfect in each and every way. our guests cheered as loud as possible when they started playing the first few notes. it was incredible. the band was personable with each and every guest and had even the shy few on the dance floor.

one very large part was our first dance and we made it even harder by switching it from our original song to the one which they played. we had zero worries and david assured us they had it down, and boy did they deliver. 100% satisfaction.

from the newly married couple, we appreciate everything you did for us and you gave us some of the best memories we could have ever asked for.

thanks again!

ENCORE RULED!!!!

Encore Band which is part of Washington Talent Agency was GREAT!!! They brought the house down and kept the party going. It was amazing. Everyone was on the dance floor. My guest at the end of the wedding mentioned that they don’t like to dance, and they don’t like to be on the dance floor – but this is the first wedding they ever went to that they danced BECAUSE of the band.

They were all so great and the energy along with working with the band before the wedding was easy. Once we saw them at their studio, we knew we wanted them. We signed up, filled out a survey when we were close, and then talked to them on the phone that week of the wedding. They were so on point with every song and every action and also every suggestion. A few things, I thought would be good, they recommended and they were RIGHT!!

My guest are still talking about the band, including my husband grandmother, who had a few dances. They picked classic and fun songs, that parents, kids and also grandmothers would know and include in everyone.

I even got to sing into the microphone which was a first and super fun!

They even came to our after-party! They were great to hang out, wonderful spirit and Will and Don were great to work with!!

Onyx was WONDERFUL. Our ceremony and cocktail hour music was just perfect. They were able to work around some of our non-traditional requests - for instance they allowed for me to walk down the isle to Elton John's "Your Song" and really ended our ceremony on a fun note by playing the "Lional & Lucy" song (Charlie Brown) for our recessional.

During our reception the band immediately engaged our guests ... and kept them dancing throughout the entire night! I have never heard SO much positive feedback about a band before. So many folks told us that Onyx was "The Best band they had EVER heard at a wedding". Their lead singer, Ginny, was AMAZING. With about 1 million things going on at once she was able to be a calming AND very fun force all at once. What a wonderful gal!

THANK YOU for making our day just so incredibly personal and special!

I am commenting as the mother of the bride. A band is a hefty investment for a wedding but SPECTRUM was well worth it--they played and performed beyond our expectations. They worked with my daughther and I ,were most accommodating and even created a motown medley for my husband. Their down time was minimal and the played all the songs we had requested. A good band has everyone on the dance floor and it was obvious very few people were watching and not dancing. Thanks to all the band members of SPECTRUM for creating wonderful memories.

Spectrum performed way above our expectations. When we selected Spectrum, we knew we had found a great band for our wedding. They were entertaining, vibrant, and very personable. They told us they would learn to play our First Dance song, the Father-Daughter song, the Mother-Son song, and our Last Dance song. When we heard them perform the 4 songs, we were blown away. Not only did they learn them, they sounded amazing performing them. They kept the dance floor packed all night long, and knew exactly what song to play at what time to keep things flowing at the right pace. They interacted with the crowd just the right amount and even through in a few of our favorite party songs when we were finally able to let loose on the dance floor. We couldn't be happier with their performance and we are so glad we chose Spectrum. We still have wedding guests telling us how awesome our band was. We highly recommend Spectrum to all, especially those looking for a talented, stylish band that can play all genres of music.

My husband and I had our wedding on July 6th at the Tremont Grand Hotel. Marc Wilner, from Washington Talent, provided our ceremony and reception music. He was a very friendly, fun, and open-minded DJ who provided us with some creative ideas to integrate into our ceremony and reception. He needed no real assistance with music selection and knew EXACTLY what to do to get people out on the dance floor and to stay there. He makes sure to have all of the details of your wedding down, and creates and follows a timeline that you put together. He was a fabulous DJ and all of our guests raved about him afterwards. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone - it was the best choice we made for our reception.

I would absolutely recommend him to anyone - it was the best choice we made for our reception. Read less

Millennium of Washington Talent is the best wedding band I have ever heard/seen. I am so thankful they played at my wedding. Millennium is worth every penny - if you want a great dance party, you need to hire them!

They never took a break and played the best music that crossed generations.

Seriously, the best band you will ever find.

Through this agency, you can book a fantastic band called "Millenium". After viewing the videos, there was no question that this was our band. They are so versatile and the lead singers really compliment each other. The wedding venue had to be changed at the last minute due to Derecho 2012. After a stressful situation, we were ready to party. They were amazing and kept playing one song after the other. All of our guests said this was the best wedding band they had ever experienced. Thank you Millenium for making this the best wedding day ever!

Onyx is hands down the most amazing band in the DC area! Always responsive, professional, and willing to bend over backwards for their clients- you cannot go wrong with using them. My wedding day would not have been such a huge success without them! They played the best music ALL night and had everyone (of all ages) on the dance floor.

If you are looking for a group to really "get-down" and interact with your guests Onyx is the perfect band for you. Each member adds their own lil spark and touch. We got such great comments from our guests on how much they loved the band and my husband and I could not have been happier!

This review is for the band, The Prime Time!

We love the Prime Time. Hand down for the first time we met them at the their show. If you are looking for an high energy, good looking, great voice, interact with guests, and fun, The Prime Time is the one. Each member has different talent, but they come together as a team which gives our guests a great night great night. Our guests came to me at the end of the night and told me that they couldn't dance anymore because the band was fantastic. So many compliments on the band, singers, music, and songs they chose for the night. Songs for everyone, for every ages and generations! Even my dad never dances before, came out and danced for the whole night. My aunts and uncles didn't dance but they enjoyed every single song; they told me "the band is so good. Their voice are fantastic." My husband worked with Aaron for our first dance song. They did a great job on our first dance. They sang all my requested songs through the night which made my night more special. Plus Aaron was a pleasant to work with. Thank you so much Aaron, Katie, Darrin, Koli, and Ricky (if I missed your name, please forgive me.) You guys are awesome. Great voice! Can't take your voice out of my head for three days. Everytime listening to wedding songs or Top 40, I miss my wedding band. :)

We used three Washington Talent vendors for our daughter's wedding on June 17. We were extremely pleased with everyone: the musicians who provided the ceremony music were very talented and professional in every way. The band (Spectrum) was fabulous-- non stop music that was high energy keeping everyone on the dance floor. They set the tone for a fun, fabulous evening. Jeff Schofield was our videographer: he's very talented, was completely unobtrusive the whole day and created a video that truly captured the essence of our daughter's wedding -- and he's a nice guy to boot: very easy to work with. Couldn't have been more pleaded

Washington Talent was very easy to work with-- they're all real pros who helped make our daughter's wedding day very special.

Onyx was incredible at our wedding!! The band sounded amazing and kept our guests of all ages dancing all night. The high energy that Ginny, the lead singer, and the rest of the band brought to our wedding ensured that we never had a lull on the dance floor. The music was continuous throughout the entire night and Onyx made sure to really give it everything they had--it was beyond perfect. Our friends still comment about how Onyx was the best band they've heard. We couldn't have been happier and would 100% hire Onyx again. Thank you so much for being part of our special day!!

Washington Talent was wonderful to work with! We had Prime Time as our band. They were AMAZING! Aaron was great to work with...the timeline ran smoothly and perfectly! Everything we asked the band to play or not to play was honored, and they made for a wonderful reception. The band sounded great, was energetic, they interacted with me and my husband and our guests, and they kept the party going on a really hot day (and the reception was in a tent where the A/C wasn't working very well). I should say that I am really picky about music, especially live music, and Prime Time exceeded my expectations! So many of our guests commented on how great the band was and my sister and mother commented that they wished they had used Prime Time for my sister's wedding two years ago. I can't say enough good things about Prime Time. They rocked!

Monica Vidal Hartzman was our photographer and Larmar/Larry Bridge was our videographer. They were both amazing as well. They both made sure to capture all of our special moments, starting at our pre-ceremony photographs to the ceremony, to the reception and even afterwards. While I haven't seen the final photos or video yet, they were both really wonderful to work with. They both worked well with the band, coordinating the photos/video we requested with the flow of the party.

Thank you Washington Talent for providing us such amazing Vendors! We loved Prime Time, Monica, and Larry!!!

All of our friends and relatives are still raving about your performance and look forward to booking you for their future events. You made my girlfriends want to get married just so that they could hire you! Thank you for knowing just what to play at all the right moments!

GAIL SHANTA: our harpist for the ceremony and cocktail hour, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I absolutely loved working with you. Thank you also for agreeing to play on such short notice and for being such a great sport! Your music was absolutely elegant and perfect; I will never forget my walk down the aisle.

We had a Washington Talent Wedding! We booked Onyx for our band, THe Rock String Quartet for the ceremony and cocktail hour, Jack Hartzman and Bill Millios for Photography, and Jeff Schofield for videography. EVERYTHING was outstanding. Our pictures came back and they are absolutely amazing. We still need to go through and pick the ones we want for the album. The photographers made it fun and easy... we didn't have to think about anything! Onyx did such an amazing job! I got so many compliments on them. The dance floor was literally packed from first song until everyone was chanting "ONE MORE SONG!" at the end of the night. They engaged the crowd, they were singing and dancing out with the group on the dance floor. The whole night was perfect!

We very much appreciate your entertainment as there was not a minute of the night where people were not enjoying themselves. Thank you. Thank you for making my wedding night the most magical.

I would recommend them to anyone who's looking for a lively band who plays a variety of music to get the party started and keep it going; I'm so glad we chose them for our special event!
We also had Jeff Schofield from WTA as our videographer. We are so pleased with our wedding video. He did a great job capturing the very special moments of the weekend. He was present, but not invasive. I would definitely recommend him.

We used Spectrum through Washington Talent Agency for our wedding and we were absolutely BLOWN away. They were phenomenal. There aren't words to describe how happy my husband and I are with Spectrum. We booked them after seeing them perform at a showcase in their offices in Rockville. We loved them immediately and never looked at another wedding band. They were incredibly responsive and even sat down with us a month before the wedding to talk thru our ideas, favorite and least favorite songs, and the timeline for the evening.

Our wedding had a lot of moving pieces but one thing we NEVER worried about was the band. They did a phenomal Horah and our dance floor was PACKED the entire evening. My 60 year old mother said after the wedding that she had never "wanted to dance that badly" at a wedding before and that she "couldn't stop dancing!". Spectrum made our wedding and we couldnt be more grateful to Ben, George and the whole band. People were coming up to us all night raving about the music!

Thank you so much!!

Every comment we have gotten since our wedding has included something about how amazing the band was.

Black Tie is the perfect wedding band. They played a great mix of modern and classic dance songs that kept all of our guests up on the dance floor all night long. They were very interactive and kept everyone entertained. A nice new touch, that we didn't know about, the female singer played guitar and sang during dinner. Strickland is very easy to work with and is amazing as a band leader. He responded to all of our questions and helped us with planning the night's events.

Washington Talent was a pleasure to work with. We really enjoyed attending the band showcases at their studio and it helped us find the perfect band. If you have an upbeat crowd that wants to dance, we highly recommend Washington Talent and Black Tie.

I recently used Wash Talent for my daughter's wedding. We went with the band Encore and were thrilled with them. They did the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Dance floor was never empty but for the few who did not dance they went to the tables to make them feel a part of the fun. Their sound is great, their professionallism and ability to read a crowed is over and above. People could not stop raving about them and most important: The Bride and Groom were over the top with them. Shana at Washington Talent is the person to use....she is great.

Our band, Spectrum, was outstanding at our daughter's wedding. In fact, we used them three years ago for our other daughter's wedding. The music choices were perfect for our guests, and the dance floor was filled to capacity from beginning to end. When the party ended, the guests were so disappointed, they yelled for an encore, which the band agreed to play. Ben Kaufman, the band organizer, was a great communicator, always returned emails promptly and had many great suggestions that made the night one we will never forget.

Washington Talent did a great job of guiding us to the band, Spectrum, who gave a fantastic performance at my wedding reception. Spectrum's energy and vocals kept my guests on the dance floor. George, of Spectrum, was a great MC for the event and Ben, on keyboards, had excellent song selection to keep the evening moving. My guests asked for an encore at the end of the night! I highly recommend Spectrum. They made my reception such a success!

We had the band Encore at our wedding last week and they were absolutely fantastic!!! We booked them after they played at my cousin's wedding a year ago and when I saw all of my aunts and uncles and parents, plus all of the "younger" crowd on the dance floor at the same time, I knew that I wanted them to play my wedding as well. Encore did SUCH a great job of getting everyone excited and out on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG, and they even learned our first dance song for us. Even though we had discussed having no impromptu performances beforehand, my husband's grandma surprised us by wanting to sing a song and the band was totally ok with that as well. It was simply an awesome night! I think it helped that we had an awesome group of guests who wanted to dance and party too, but Encore totally got the crowd going and I can't stop raving about them!!! I recommend them to anyone!

We had ONYX at our wedding on Saturday night and words can't describe how AMAZING they were!! The dance floor was packed from the minute we did our first dance until the end of the night. No one wanted the party to end! The band and all the singers had incredible energy and were out singing and dancing with the crowd all night (not in a cheesy way though). We've gotten tons of phone calls from our friends and family over the past few days telling us that our wedding was the most fun wedding they've ever been to and that is due in large part to ONYX and their phenomenal performance! They were worth every single penny!!

Washington Talent provided us with our Mariachis. My husband and I wanted something Latin and fun for the walk from the church to the reception as well as for cocktail hours. I am not Mexican, but this was the best option for us. We had a lot of guests from Mexico at the wedding and they were quite impressed with the mariachis. The group was also able to play music from all over Latin America which was a great plus for my Central American Family.

Aside from their talent, they came on time, did a great job and really were responsive to our guests and their requests. They set the tone for the night and got everyone in a fun mood. Mission accomplished.

Our wedding was over two weeks ago and people have not stopped talking about how amazing Prime Time was! They had everyone on the dance floor at the beginning of the reception and very few people left the floor during the course of the evening. The music catered to every age group in the audience, the timeline was spot on and Aaron was a phenomenal MC. We also had Prime Time musicians perform our ceremony music, as well as during the cocktail hour and everything sounded great.

We also used Monica for photography, with Bill's assistance. The handful of pictures we've seen so far as terrific and we can't wait to see the rest and put our album together. Besides being incredibly nice people, they were very soothing to be around and helped calm some jittery nerves! Since the weather was nice, they encouraged us to take pictures in the Inner Harbor, which I would have regretted had we not done them!

Shana was our event consultant and she was incredibly responsive and always willing to answer questions whenever we had them!

We booked Black Tie for our wedding and they were OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!! Ever since the wedding all we are hearing is about how incredible the band is. Strickland could not have been more flexible and accommodating. He worked with us in advance to tailor the schedule, music, and tone of the reception to our vision. He had the dance floor packed from the first song to the last. They played through the entire night without taking a break. Strickland took over the schedule/timeline to make sure that everything was taken care of from the first dances, to the toasts, to the cake cutting, and the bouquet toss. The singers were FANTASTIC!!! They got out on the dance floor and engaged the crowd. Chris' personality and dance moves helped set the tone of the party and kept everyone going. They even learned a couple songs just for our special day. At the end of the night they had a terrific send off and I thought the building was going to collapse because they had 160 people jumping in unison. Afterwards, when I asked if they'd be willing to join us at a local pub for an after party drink, I was so touched when they obliged. They made the party and truly made us feel like they were part of our family. THANKS BLACK TIE!!!

Bill Millios and the 2 Kyle's were beyond wonderful to work with! This was my second wedding so I have experienced wedding pictures before. I gave them a list of important people and the type of shots I was looking for ahead of time and I didn't have to think at all the day of my wedding. My wife and I got to do our thing and be ourselves and the photographers and videographer did their thing but unless we were looking right at them we wouldn't have noticed they were there! It was so much fun to have the intimate time with my wife and they captured it on film beautifully. We took a lot of fun shots and some not so traditional shots. Most of our guests were Deaf so instead of having them "sign" a guest book we had them "sign" for our video. We set up a private area and the videographer took over getting everyone to "sign" in! They were able to taylor a package to our needs both time wise and within our budget. I would recommend them to anyone for your special event photography needs!

I can't say enough good things about both Washington Talent Agency but more specifically the band, Millenium. They were AMAZING!!!! We had booked them based on the video clips and their song list but then heard them in person at a bridal show and were wow'ed! Little did I know that they were even more amazing than that. They truly made the reception! Everyone raved that they were the BEST band they've every heard at a wedding. John Hart was great to work with on the front end and Travis the lead singer (former contestant on American Idol) made sure that everything happened as it should. They did a terrific job on figuring out what type of music to play when. They got EVERYONE on the dance floor. We couldn't have been happier with them!!! BOOK THEM!!!!!!

We worked with Shana at Washington Talent to coordinate all of our wedding entertainment needs. She helped us with the band, cocktail music, ceremony music, videography and lighting. It all turned out fabulous. Our music and lighting were very highly received by our guests. And we can't wait to see the videography results (as it has only been 2.5 weeks since our wedding).

One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was going with ENCORE for our band after attending several free band showcases which Washington Talent offers its customers. The opportunity to see the band perform live without having to crash a wedding as some other folks recommended was a plus. Ultimately, having Encore at our wedding created a positive and energized atmosphere. We had so many people dancing before the 2nd course was even served!! Encore was perfect for our wedding crowd of all ages and musical preferences and absolutely helped to create a "fun" wedding. Their band leader (Don), vocals (Will, LC, Natasha) and instrumentalists are outstanding!!! You have to go with Encore!!

In addition to the band, we thought that the group DaVinci Strings did an outstanding job during the ceremony. They played well and were very professional. We would recommend them as well. We selected a cello, violin, and flute.

We thought that Jeff, the videographer did an outstanding job as well. He was ever-present, yet at the same time un-obtrusive in his coverage of the wedding.

The lighting looked great for the wedding ceremony and reception. We worked with Shana to create the perfect lighting setup for our color vision. We had some questions about dancefloor lighting and Shana set us up with Carroll, who did a fine job explaining the nuances of the options and his recommendations were perfect.

Overall, we would absolutely love to work with Washington Talent and especially Encore again!!!

UPDATE: We received our copy of the BluRay for the ceremony and reception, and the results were outstanding! Jeff's videography and editing turned out fantastic! I would highly recommend.

Washington Talent Agency was very easy to work with from the start. Even though I was fairly set on Spectrum (from a glowing recommendation I had received), they sent us a disc of available bands for our date. They were all great and it was a hard decision. Spectrum though was amazing and we were more than happy with our choice. Ben and the band were so easy to work with and any request we had, they met. Even requests during the wedding, they were than happy to do! Everyone at the wedding LOVED them. My father, who can be pretty hard to please, but loves a good band, was especially impressed and was on the dance floor the whole time. They did a great job of getting everyone on the dance floor and keeping them there with a great mix of current hits and all time favorites. From older to younger, everyone was out there dancing and having a ball. What I thought was especially impressive was that the band never stopped, except when people were talking of course! Someone was always playing or singing something appropriate to the mood while we were eating and then once we were ready to dance, they never stopped! I would, and already have, recommend Spectrum and Washington Talent Agency to anyone! Thanks, Spectrum for giving everyone at the wedding a fun night to remember!

We didn't even talk to them about what to play that night and they knew exactly how to work the crowd. I saw people dancing that I have never seen dance in my life! They were truly the hit of the wedding. I'm still getting calls about how amazing they sounded. Our only regret is that we didn't video tape the wedding so we could hear them again!! Thank you, thank you!!! Incredible band and Travis was a gem as the leader of the band. He knew exactly what to play from the light dinner music to getting the crowd moving after dinner. I can't wait to have a party and hire them again!!!

Onyx is absolutely incredible!!!! If you want a high energy, interactive, non stop party, you need to hire this band. My husband and I got married on 9/24 and we never once left the dance floor! All of the band members were terrific and they seriously gave us the party of our lives. They never really stopped - they even skipped one of their scheduled breaks because we were all having so much fun and they didn't want to interrupt the party. Our guests continue to rave about the band, they had young and old out on the floor dancing for hours. David, band manager, was so accommodating and responsive to all of our requests and even drove an hour and a half to meet with us face to face before the wedding. We cannot say enough good things about this group. Thank you Onyx for making our wedding celebration one we will never forget!!!!

We used Millennium through Washington Talent and have nothing but the most positive things to say about them. They were absolutely incredible through the entire 4 hour reception. They are the most energetic band I have ever seen and kept at least 150 of our 200 guests on the dance floor the ENTIRE night.

Our guests are still calling us, almost 2 months after our wedding, raving about Millennium. They can't get over their incredible voices and amazing dancing skills!

I loved how interactive they were with our guests, dancing with us on the dance floor and letting us dance with them on the stage.

My only wish is that we added another hour to the reception because 4 hours with Millennium was just not enough!

We also used Washington Talent for our videography. Jeff Schofield and David Harris shot the wedding. They were very professional and so awesome to work with. They had amazing ideas of creative ways to shoot us and fun things to include in the video. They were extremely unobtrusive (we barely saw them the entire night, but they managed to get every last detail!)

I was shocked how quick our video was completed and sent to us (6 weeks!) The editing was unbelievable, big thanks to Dawn Griffin! We got a short 3 minute clip to send to friends and family (who haven't stopped talking about it) and we also got a longer 10 minute highlight reel along with our 2+ hour video. The 10 minute reel is perfect to pop in if we're feeling nostalgic, but don't have 2 hours to sit and watch the entire video.

We strongly recommend both Millennium and Washington Talent Videogaphy!

David Harris was our wedding videographer and he did a wonderful job capturing our ceremony/cocktail hour and reception. The video was personalized and of great quality. He even captured details such as the front of the hotel, the ceremony site prior to guest arrival, our wedding programs and more. Our families loved watching it and remembering the fun we had and we will cherish our video forever. Thank you David!

DaVinci Strings was our vendor for our ceremony and cocktail hour music. We had a string quartet, though they offer many other options for ceremony music. They sounded beautiful and were easy to work with. There is not much contact with them throughout the process but if you ask for their music lists you may pick and choose the songs you would like to hear or suggest ones not on the list as well. They can play the classics but also very modern pieces as well. Everyone enjoyed the music very much, including us! Thank you DaVinci!

Marc Wilner was our Dj for our wedding! Marc was fantastic and had our dance floor packed most of the evening! It was definitely the party we had wanted and we were thankful to work with Marc to make it happen. We sent Marc a list of songs we really wanted to hear and he filled in the rest for us.

David Harris was our wedding videographer and he did a wonderful job capturing our ceremony/cocktail hour and reception. The video was personalized and of great quality. He even captured details such as the front of the hotel, the ceremony site prior to guest arrival, our wedding programs and more. Our families loved watching it and remembering the fun we had and we will cherish our video forever. Thank you David!

DaVinci Strings was our vendor for our ceremony and cocktail hour music. We had a string quartet, though they offer many other options for ceremony music. They sounded beautiful and were easy to work with. There is not much contact with them throughout the process but if you ask for their music lists you may pick and choose the songs you would like to hear or suggest ones not on the list as well. They can play the classics but also very modern pieces as well. Everyone enjoyed the music very much, including us! Thank you DaVinci!

Marc Wilner was our Dj for our wedding! Marc was fantastic and had our dance floor packed most of the evening! It was definitely the party we had wanted and we were thankful to work with Marc to make it happen. We sent Marc a list of songs we really wanted to hear and he filled in the rest for us. The dining atmosphere was filled with classy and jazzy songs and the reception was filled with fun! Marc was well spoken, professional, experienced, and fun!

Brian was fantastic. He called us a couple of days before the wedding and went over all the music that we wanted and made sure how we wanted everything to go. He made suggestions when I wasn't sure how I wanted it to go and made music suggestions when I forgot about the song afterwards. He also made a suggestion about the last song played which I didn't think about. He coordinated with my singer who was going to sing the first dance and made sure that was all good. During the wedding everything was on queue. During the reception he interacted with all my guests getting everyone to get up and dance. It was fantastic, I can go on. I like to thank Susan from Washington Talent Agency for getting Brian for me. And personal thank Brian for a fantastic job. I had the best wedding. Would I recommend? Definitely without hesitation.

Planning a wedding means making a lot of really tough decisions. Once the event is over you have a chance to look back and reflect on the decisions that worked out, and those that maybe you would do differently if you had it to do all over again. We can both say without hesitation that having Spectrum as our wedding band was by far THE BEST decisions we made!!! They put on one of the BEST parties that we have ever been to - by mixing today's hits with yesterday’s favorites. They had everyone on the dance floor before dinner was even served, and people did NOT sit down until the final note. We have had so many people from the wedding tell us that Spectrum is the best band they have ever heard!

They were so flexible when it came to learning new songs and performed them as good as, if not better, than the original artists. The three leads were so interactive with the crowd and even allowed guests up on stage. We cannot wait for our next excuse to hire Spectrum for an event. If you are smart you will do the same!

If you want your guests on their feet dancing and telling you over and over again that your wedding reception was the most amazing time they ever had-- book Onyx with Washington Talent! It's been almost a week and my feet are still sore from dancing and my husband and I are being constantly asked for the band's contact info. Our guests were on the dance floor all night and didn't want to leave our reception! We couldn't have asked for a more fun band and Washington Talent is every bride's dream-- responsive, organized, pleasant and flexible. They truly worked to make our wedding special and memorable.

We had Millennium perform at our wedding. First of all, 5 stars is so not enough. 1,000 stars is what Millennium deserves! Outrageous, outstanding, phenomenal are just some words I can say to describe how I feel about John, Travis and the rest of the band. People were on their feet dancing the entire night. All of our guests are still talking about how outstanding the band was. One of our friends said she felt like she was listening to her Ipod - they played every genre, every decade!! Travis is a super star - his voice and dance moves are amazing! John, the leader of the band and keyboard player performed during our ceremony and it was the perfect touch. Classy and beautiful! I can't thank Millennium enough for their absolutely fantastic performance at our wedding. From the first time we heard Millennium perform, we knew we had to have them no matter what!

Good afternoon Jack and Monica,

Apologies for taking so long to do so, but Nate and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude for accomodating us on August 20th. We really appreciate all of your time, effort, and attention to detail on our special day. I have no doubt that the pictures will be every bit as wonderful as you were to us. Everyone, especially us, noticed and has since commented on your professionalism and the ease with which it was to work with you. My brothers, who LOATHE having their pictures taken, commented last night on how much they even liked working with you (MAJOR compliment). Mom's mentioned how much she appreciated that even though I was the bride that day, how you took the time to notice things (e.g., her necklace) about her too, which equally made her feel special.

Our wedding was absolutely the most magical day of my life and I'm still on cloud nine :) Thank you so much for capturing it for us. It's a day that we will never forget.

Best wishes,

Kate and Nate

We used Spectrum for our Wedding and couldn't be happier with their performance. It was absolutely AMAZING! I can't tell you how many people have come up to us since the wedding to get their contact information for their events. Every song they played sounded just like the originals and they had our guests up all night dancing. Hands down they are the BEST band we have seen any wedding so far and we have been to a lot. If you have them for your event you will not be disappointed!

It was faith how I found Onyx. I nervously contacted Washington Talent because it was a bit difficult for us to select a band by looking at video clips on many production websites. Luckily, Robert Sherman who is the owner of the agency picked up the phone on that day. Throughout our short conversation, Robert invited us to schedule to see his company showcases LIVE! We were so excited and picked Onyx when I found out Robert himself also plays drums for the group. Once we met every member of the band, we knew we made the right choice! They were very friendly, cheerful, professional, and fantastic. We had a great time at their showcase.

I was then introduced to the band manager David Cohen, he was so easy to work with. Everything was explained well, I literally didn’t need to ask much. Every time I contacted David, he responded to my emails and phone calls promptly. He never once made me feel that I bothered him.

YOU MUST READ THIS! I had a request and I would never think they could deliver it. I jokingly asked Onxy if the band could perform my favorite song in Chinese, “The Moon Presents My Heart” by Teresa Tseng. NO-ONE could believe this on our wedding day, our guests’ eyes were wide opened and their mouth dropped in surprise. We had goose bumps when Ginny started singing the song. It was out of this world and Onyx had blown me away! Ginny nailed the lyrics and every note IN CHINESE! Onyx was not hesitant to take this challenge and learned this legendary song. Even some Chinese singers could not sing well in the past. Our families and friends seriously didn’t know how they could do it without prior experience in singing Chinese.

Words cannot explain how Onyx had made our wedding day a dream come true. The band performance was better than we could have asked for, we definitely could not entertain our families and guests the way we did without their presence. Everyone had so much fun and we received tons of compliments. Their energy and charisma were contagious.

Onyx went above and beyond our expectations! Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding perfect!!! We would highly recommend Onyx for any bride. Thanks so much for such a great experience. We would like to send our sincerest thank to Robert Sherman (Owner/Drums), David Cohen (Keyboards), and Ginny Carroll (Vocals) for walking us step by step through our wedding planning with confidence and stress free. Many Thanks to Justin Marshall (MC/Vocals), Elliot Smith (Vocals), Nick Henry (Sax), Justice Cammack (Guitar), and Drew Delgado (Vocals) for making the night memorable. We will definitely go back to visit frequently and seek for any services for any future special events!

We had Onyx play our wedding and we couldn't have made a better choice! They actually played my husbands bar mitzvah 13 years ago so when we got engaged we immediately checked to see if they were still together. They were and 3 of the members of the band were actually the same! Ginny and the gang rocked out ALL night long!! We spoke with Ginny on the phone and through e-mail several times the week before the wedding and she was very accommodating to our requests. They did everything we asked, including letting my 7 year old superstar drummer cousin play a song with them! Throughout the night they would check in with us to see if we wanted things done a certain way or if we should keep the music going, etc. We have received NUMEROUS compliments about our band and how much fun people had because of them! They are in the high price range for a band, but they are certainly worth every penny!!

We also hired WTA for our videography. Jeff was fantastic!!! He captured our day exactly as we asked him to. It was nice that he also knew worked for the same company as our band as that made the videography during the reception that much smoother. Jeff is a really nice guy and will work with you to make sure he captures your day exactly as you want it to be. I'd highly recommend him!

Jeff Schofield is a top notch videographer, by far! His professionalism is outstanding & the quality of his work is of the highest standards! He promised us he would be inconspicuous throughout the wedding ceremony, & he certainly was. There's nothing more annoying than a photographer & videographer that stand in the way of the guests as they're trying to witness & enjoy an important event, & Jeff did an amazing job of capturing every important moment, without being noticed! And during the wedding reception, he captured all sorts of priceless moments, from one end of the large room, to the other, as he was in constant motion so he would not miss anything. And we received the complete video package in just over a month after the wedding! We're totally impressed, happy, & completely satisfied!!

After reading other reviews of Washington Talent Agency, I am sure my post is going to sound repetitive... but... I ABSOLUTELY loved the band "Prime Time"!!!!!!!

My husband and I planned our wedding from Memphis, so we were worried about being able to find the right vendors. After watching hours of wedding band videos things started to all blur together and we were worried we wouldn't be able to find a good band. We knew we were planning a wedding for people who loved to dance and didn't want to wind up with a boring party... Finally I got in contact with Susan McFarlane from Washington Talent Agency and after discussing with her what we wanted in terms of a playlist and style of performance, she suggested the band "Prime Time". After watching their DVD, we were excited about moving forward. Susan guaranteed they would throw a great party. They were a little above our price range, but we decided to go for it... and that turned out to be the best decision we could have made!

Aaron, the band's leader, called me about a week before our wedding to discuss the timeline of events, etc., and to make note of any special details (i.e. the date of our wedding was also my brother's birthday and I wanted the band to sing to him). During our phone conversation he listened to me carefully and sounded like he knew exactly what he was doing! He assured me that after having done hundreds of weddings, he would make sure the fun wouldn't stop.

The energy running through our reception hall the night of our wedding was unreal! "Prime Time" band members were energetic, funny, and liked to wander through the dance floor and have people sing in their mics. They helped the evening flow very smoothly and made sure all of our guests had an awesome time.

Dozens of people approached me throughout the night exclaiming this was the best band they had every seen! The excitement did not stop!

I highly recommend "Prime Time"! They will make sure your wedding reception is completely epic!

This band "Spectrum" was absolutely amazing! They were nothing but accomodating. We were able to change songs and the order of the reception throughout the week approaching the wedding. They learned all of our special songs and sang them live for us, which was a much more personal touch as compared to a recorded version. I would recommend them for any gathering that people would need entertainment. The three lead singers are the most personable people we've ever met. Their attention and interaction with the crowd was one of the most enjoyable parts of the evening. They allowed the groom and groomsmen got to sing a song to everyone, more directed at the bride, and the bride and bridesmaids also got up on stage and sang to everyone. This was a surprising and unique touch. We were extremely happy with everything overall.

BAND:
We used Washington Talent Agency to secure the steel drum band Casio to play during the cocktail hour. Although we didn't get to hear much of them on the day of the wedding, due to photo session, we did get to hear them on our video (also through Washington Talent Agency), and they sounded great! Our wedding was to have a tropical theme, and having Casio perform during the cocktail hour totally set the mood and vibe for the rest of the evening. According to my wedding planner, they were prompt, professional and personable, and our guests raved about them throughout the evening. Thank you Casio, for helping make my day, that much more special.
VIDEOGRAPHY:
Jeff and Kyle were stellar! We just reviewed our video, and were quite please with the results…to the point of crying all over again! We used 2 videographers, to capture both the groom and bride getting ready in two different locations, and wanting to ensure that all angles were captured during the ceremony. Jeff had a great sense of humor and was more than willing to work with any request we had. He and Kyle managed to capture all of our guests at some point throughout the evening. My husband was concerned about spending any money on videographers, but after seeing samples of their work online, and now our final product, he’s so happy we secured them!! I am a bit anal, and reviewed several other videographers, but I’m so glad I went with Washington Talent Agency, and specifically Jeff and Kyle.

Our biggest debate...band versus DJ. Well after hearing Encore play at a showcase, it took us about 2 minutes to book them! There music is phenominal, they are interactive and energetic. Everyone at the wedding just get raving about how fantastic the band was...absolutely my favorite part!!! Not only was their music great, but they also surpised us and not only learned our wedding song, but worked hard within two weeks to learn two other special songs for us!! You will not be disappointed to book this band!! They made our wedding what every little girl dreams of!!

My wife and I used Washington Talent Agency and for our wedding in June of 2011. They provided musicians for our ceremony and cocktail hour and the band Spectrum for our reception. WTA was great to work with and all the musicians were true professionals which absolutely made our wedding. Spectrum is an incredible band and we highly recommend them.

We had seen another WTA band, Black Tie, play at a wedding and contacted them about playing at ours. They were unfortunately already booked on our wedding date so we worked with Strickland Bonner from WTA to find another band. He came out to our house one evening with DVDs of all of the WTA’s bands so we could see and get a feel for each of them and narrow down the selection. After this we went to WTA’s office in Rockville, MD a few times to see the bands we were considering play live. This was probably the most helpful step in the selection process. After selecting the band Spectrum and deciding to use ceremony and cocktail hour musicians from WTA as well we negotiated the final contract through Strickland.

As the wedding approached we were put in direct contact with Ben from the band who handled all of the “day of” logistics such as timing, songs to learn, and play and do not play lists. He was also in contact with our event coordinator to run through the details as well.
We hired a keyboardist to play our ceremony music which sounded great and went smoothly. We also hired a pianist for our cocktail hour, which we didn’t get to hear because we were away taking photos, but were told by our guests was excellent.

Spectrum was absolutely amazing at our reception. One of the bands signers, George, acted as the MC and directed the evening. We had our first dance first and they learned our song for us which sounded great. During dinner they played softer ballads and jazz standards which really set a classy mood. After dinner George made an announcement that he wanted to see some people on the dance floor and I couldn’t believe how many people rushed up there. From that point on the dance floor was crowded all night. Spectrum was interactive with our guest, singing and dancing with them throughout the night. Spectrum played all genres of music from all time periods and did so in a manner which appealed to all of our guests.

Every one of our guests we have seen since our wedding has complimented us on Spectrum. They truly made our reception. My wife and I both wish that we had another event to plan just so that we could hire them again. I can’t say enough about Spectrum and highly recommend them, they will not disappoint.

I cannot say enough good things about Washington Talent’s Onyx, as will likely be evidenced by the length of my post. They were amazing and a huge factor in what made my wedding so amazing. Truth be told, I wasn’t sure this was the band for me when I watched the video on the Web (The video does not do them justice) – I went to the Showcase pretty miserable (It was late in the evening on a Thursday night, fiancé and I both had bronchitis, pouring rain in horrid traffic to what felt like the middle of nowhere in Maryland…We were headed out of town that night with a long drive ahead of us with our poor dog waiting in the car while we went to listen to the band)…Pretty sure I sat down in the Showcase with my arms crossed and a grumpy look on my face. I was sick and miserable. Within five minutes I was literally dancing, jumping, and singing along with the band thinking they must have read my mind b/c they seemed to know my “Play List Wish List.” I knew this was DEFINITELY the band for me.

I cannot stress enough how great Onyx was. Our wedding felt like the dance party of the year. (I had no idea some of my relatives danced!) At one point in the night I thought, “Good things can’t last forever - They have to be getting ready for the last song…” (Always seems like the party ends when you are right at the height of the fun)…I asked somebody for the time – and was really happy that we still had an hour and 15 minutes left – And I pretty much danced every minute of it.

So many of my guests raved about how amazing the band was and how our wedding was the best they’d ever been to. I give a huge portion of the credit to Onyx b/c they definitely kept the party going – for so many hours. Guests marveled that they did not take a break – The great thing about Onyx was that they had multiple pieces in the band & rotated singers so they never had to take a break. They have incredibly high energy & interact so well with the crowd (At different points I had various props, including a microphone, a white hat, and a tambourine. My nephew had a blast playing the bongo drums); however, Onyx will work with you and “tone it down” if you’re crowd isn’t quite the crazy, happy dancers that mine was. They can do a variety of things – They played some lovely jazz during our cocktail hour & dinner before cracking things up for the fun, dance portion of the night.

David Cohen, the band manager, is very nice and attentive, and will work with you to personalize everything you need & make sure the details and timeline are just what you need. Ginny, the lead female singer, has great energy and is super fun. And ALL the other guys are incredibly fun and talented – they sing, they break-dance, they are amazing. The saxophone can even shoot out sparklers. If you think this band is pricey, I promise you it is worth every penny. I left my wedding saying over and over, “That was the best wedding I’ve ever been to and I’m not just saying that b/c I was the Bride. I would have thought that as a guest with minimal connection to the bride or groom!!” I had so much fun and I know it’s because the band kept the party going for hours. They were truly amazing and I heard that from SO MANY of our guests. They rock. Thank you Onyx – Best night ever. ☺ Xo.

Millenium is absolutely the BEST wedding band ever! We have been to a lot of weddings, but as soon as we saw them at a friend's wedding, we knew we had to have them! We were even willing to move the date for one when they were available. Travis Tucker is so awesome. The band is committed to making the event, and was definitely my favorite part of the wedding (and that is saying a lot!) The party was so awesome that the police made us shut down early.. but Millenium kept playing with quieter music until the end. It worked out perfectly actually, because it gave us a chance to wind down. I wouldn't change a thing, but I am trying to think of any reason to hire the bad again. 3 of our friends tried to book them after our wedding, which I think is a great testament to how awesome they were! There was no cheese, no annoying trying to rally people to the dance floor (because the music was so good you didn't have to). It was just professional and great music the whole way through.

Onyx just played our wedding the other weekend (May '11) and they were PHENOMENAL! Everyone at the wedding keeps commenting about how great the band was. We put the event in their hands (with a few guidelines) and they ran the show! Their talent level and professionalism were better than we ever expected (and we had HIGH expectations). I couldn't say better things about all of the members. They helped create a night we will never forget. I highly recommend them for any type of event.

We used the band Encore from Washington Talent for our May 21 wedding, based on a friend's recommendation from their wedding (and they had used them based on a recommendation from THEIR friend's wedding). There is a reason that Encore is getting passed through friends - they are just phenomenal. Before the wedding we had a long conversation with Don, the band's leader, and he was very thorough in making sure he knew what we were looking for. We wanted to make sure our band kept our guests on the dance floor all night long, and that is exactly what Encore did. They are an extremely talented group that has an extensive songlist. Their energy was infectious, and they did a fantastic job of reading the crowd and sticking with songs that were crowd pleasers. While our music genre was mostly in the Top 40 area, they also threw in a couple Motown favorites that had a lot of the older guests - my parents in particular - hitting the dance floor. They also learned three new songs of our choosing before the wedding. Our guests raved about Encore, and, sure enough, a friend of mine is looking to book them for her upcoming wedding!

Spectrum performed at our wedding and they were AMAZING. They are talented, professional, and fun! They kept the dance floor packed with their energy and charisma, and also served as a classy MC for announcements and schedule flow. We could feel that they were happy to celebrate our wedding with us and it created such a special, positive vibe -- cheesy but true! Countless guests commented on how wonderful the band was, and many were in disbelief that it was a band and not a CD of the actual artist playing because the quality was so superb! This is the first review I've ever posted on WeddingWire -- that's how good they are. : )

I cannot recommend the band Spectrum enough. I was a bride who strongly considered a dj because I wanted very current music at my reception, in addition to all the classics. Spectrum learned no fewer than 6 new songs at my specific request and performed them BETTER than the original acts. The band was lively, engaged, talented, professional, and hit all the right notes (pun intended). You will not be disappointed.

SPECTRUM was the perfect choice of band for our wedding! They also did our ceremony and cocktail music and even set up our ceremony A/V at a lower cost than the venue was willing to. They were super flexible and patient as we tried to figure out what we wanted to do for the 'special' songs and ceremony and cocktail instrumentation. Being able to contact Ben directly at any time leading up to the day for brainstorming ideas and asking questions was a huge comfort for me. As for their performance, I can't say enough good things...I loved that there were no breaks so the dance floor never quit! I kept wanting to go out on the terrace at our beautiful venue to check out how everything looked out there, but every time I tried, I would hear a song I just had to dance to! :)

This email I wrote to Ben sums up how much we loved them:

"Much as we expected, Spectrum has gotten rave reviews from all of our guests! We've actually had a lot of our friends award us "Best Wedding Ever" title telling us how much fun it was, and we know that much of the credit goes to you guys. We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding such an incredible party. We also loved the interaction, which is one of the reasons we knew you'd be the perfect band for us in the first place. We know a lot of 'hams,' and I think getting their hands on the cowbell and the tambourine really made their night, especially my aunt, who had the time of her life getting to stay on the stage with you guys practically the entire night. The absolute best thing to me was Chet convincing my groom to do the moonwalk! I knew he liked to dance, but that was probably a once in a lifetime performance for him. I loved it - definitely one of my top 3 favorite memories of the night - and I can't wait to get the video to watch it over and over!

Also, the song you learned for me to walk down the aisle to turned out perfectly. I am so glad we decided to do that; it really felt like something special for us that was different from any other wedding. You were also amazing to learn the song for my dance with my dad without complaint, when I think I only gave you little over a week's notice, and you all performed it beautifully.

We will certainly recommend Spectrum to everyone we know planning an event, and I suspect our friends will be recommending you to their friends as well. And if we are ever planning an event that we need a band for, we will absolutely call you guys without hesitation!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for an awesome party!!!"

If you want a super-fun party and stress free music experience, hire Spectrum! You won't regret it.

You were also amazing to learn the song for my dance with my dad without complaint, when I think I only gave you little over a week's notice, and you all performed it beautifully.

We will certainly recommend Spectrum to everyone we know planning an event, and I suspect our friends will be recommending you to their friends as well. And if we are ever planning an event that we need a band for, we will absolutely call you guys without hesitation!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for an awesome party!!!"

If you want a super-fun party and stress free music experience, hire Spectrum! You won't regret it. Read less

Washington Talent was the best to work with. I booked Black Tie for the band for my daughter's wedding. The band was fantastic and got everyone up on the dance floor. I also booked a videographer with them and everywhere I looked he was there taking shots of the wedding and reception. Washington Talent was very fast to respond to any of my calls or email and they were on top of their job right before the wedding by catering to our every need. Great job working with Strickland Bonner! Kudos!!!

Our DJ was Johnny Hernandez. He was the best addition to our wedding day. From the very first meeting he hit the ground running. He was well organized and full of idea for the wedding. He put together a schedule and carried that through to the day of the wedding. He customized our songs and was flexible when we provided him a CD of songs we wanted him to play. He did exactly what we wanted. The reception with extremely smooth with him as our MC. He connected with the wedding guests, interacted with the line dances (when appropriate), stuck to the schedule and kept the party going till the very end. Definitely recommend Washington Talent and of course DJ Johnny Hernandez!!!

Black Tie did the most amazing job at our wedding. The next morning every person asked us who our band was and told us how incredible the night was. No matter the musical taste of our guests they all agreed that Black Tie made the wedding fun and played the right mix of music.

It seemed like they never took a break and got on the dance floor with us. They even managed to get a kiss from our 98 year old grandma.

The band leader Strickland was happy to accomodate our music requests; made suggestions about the timing of the evening and made sure we had what we needed.

Dont think twice about picking Black Tie they will make your special occasion amazing!!

I am a self proclaimed snobby consumer, I am the bride that needed everything to be perfect, music was priority #1. This was my second time using WTA for an event, and it couldn't have been a better experience.

I worked with DJ Carroll Higgins and he is not only a very debonair man (love the ponytail!) with a style that calmed my Type A personality, but he gave me a performance with energy and the utmost professionalism. He was absolutely amazing, the crowd loved him, he made me feel like a top priority, and the uplighting he provided the venue against the columns was insanely beautiful. I can't stop saying enough good things about his performance that night. From here on I will only use WTA and of course DJ Carroll if he's available, both him and Marc Wilner went above and beyond to make me feel like their #1 customer. I love you guys!

Cheers,
A Potomac Bride :)

Washington Talent Agency is fabulous and Spectrum (band) is AMAZING! I first spoke with Chuck, who ran the numbers for me & “booked” the band. Chuck’s upbeat, pleasant personality is so contagious. He really knows what he’s doing & I felt 100% confident working with him as he’s been in the industry for a while. Leading up to the wedding I was in touch with Spectrum’s band leader, Ben. The closer we got to the Big Day the more questions I had for Ben. (I really had a million questions. He’s a saint.) He was continually patient, gave me honest feedback & advice and always responded right away. Before speaking with him, I felt clueless. My questions ranged from who should be announced in the wedding party/will people be offended by their “order” to what songs he recommended for the father/daughter dance. As I said, Ben was responsive and his advice/answers put me at ease. Our wedding was amazing and EVERYONE was commenting on how talented and incredible the band was. At one point I looked around and everyone, ages 5- 80 years old was on the dance floor! They nailed every song and had everyone engaged, dancing and singing along. The highlight of my night was being onstage with them and belting out my favorite song, “Sweet Child O’ Mine”. I would HIGHLY recommend Washington Talent Agent- they’re ideal to work with & they truly made our wedding day the best day of our lives.

Working with Marc prior to the wedding was great he laid everything out for us and what to expect, we provided him with some suggestions and he had more to go along with those, so we really trusted him in the flow of the reception.

The day of the wedding Marc was phenomenal, his professionalism, attention to detail to make sure everythgin sounded perfect for both the ceremony and the reception was amazing. My wife and I got compliments all night on the great music selections and that this was the best wedding they have been to yet (other than their own of course). I want to thank Marc and Washington Talent Agency for making our day perfect. I would high ly recomend them to anyone I know getting married.

This is your one stop shop for ALL your enterainment needs. I am a special events coordinator for a local hospital and I have worked with and have known Washington Talent (WTA) for many years. Because of the close relationship that developed from working with (WTA) I knew I wanted them to be there for me on the most important day of my life, my wedding day!

BAND
As a professional event planner I worked with the band Millennium for several coprorate events. This band will have your guests wanting more! They are high energy talented and will keep the crowd dancing. They play all genres of music. Travis is an exceptional EMCEE and lead vocalist. All band members are incredibly talented, approachable, easy to work with and will assist you in any questions you have about the music selections. For my wedding they even learned a song for our "first dance". It was absolutly beauitful and added a nice personal touch to our dance. On a personal note, when I planned my wedding the very first thing I checked before even booking the reception venue was making sure Millennium was available for my date. That's how good they are. They will not disapooint.

VIDEO
Jeff Scofield is your go to guy for video needs. I've known Jeff for many years and I asked him to be there for my big day. He and his crew did a fantastic job capturing moments during the ceremony and reception that I otherwise would not have been able to capture.

After collecting footage they created a beautiful video of our wedding day. It's a video that we will be able to treasure for many years. It tells the story of our wedding day and we can relive the emotions / memories of the day and share it with family and friends.

Photography
I think if there is an area of the planning process that the bride is most concerned with, other than her dress, it's finding the right photographer. I was one of those brides that was searching for the photographer that would be the right fit for me and my fiance. I searched, high and low, but there he was right under my nose the entire time. Jack Hartzman with WTA proved to be the photographer that was the perfect fit for me and my family. Not only did he capture precious moments of the day, but he is creative with his photography which sets him apart from other photographers. Also his partner and fellow lead photographer Monica works with him to design and layout the photo album and oh my god --- they do amazing work!!!!!! The album tells a story from start to finish. My husband is currently serving over seas and they even organized a special video of the album for my husband, just so he can share in this experience, as we will be apart for a year. Talk about going above and beyond...that's what the WTA family is all about.

I was extremely fortunate....I had something special...a team of professionals (band, photographer, and videographer) that all know each other, trust and respect one another - and more importantly can anticipate one another's moves. They work together, support one another and much like an orchestra create beauitful music together - in this case creating beautiful moments for you, the groom, your families and guests.

The best part is that it is not exclusive - you too can have this special dream team of vendors working for you to make your wedding the day the most memoriable and happiest day of your life.

My agent who I enjoy working with over the years and assisted me during the wedding process was Chuck kahanov - 301-762-1800.

Also his partner and fellow lead photographer Monica works with him to design and layout the photo album and oh my god --- they do amazing work!!!!!! The album tells a story from start to finish. My husband is currently serving over seas and they even organized a special video of the album for my husband, just so he can share in this experience, as we will be apart for a year. Talk about going above and beyond...that's what the WTA family is all about.

I was extremely fortunate....I had something special...a team of professionals (band, photographer, and videographer) that all know each other, trust and respect one another - and more importantly can anticipate one another's moves. They work together, support one another and much like an orchestra create beauitful music together - in this case creating beautiful moments for you, the groom, your families and guests.

The best part is that it is not exclusive - you too can have this special dream team of vendors working for you to make your wedding the day the most memoriable and happiest day of your life.

My agent who I enjoy working with over the years and assisted me during the wedding process was Chuck kahanov - 301-762-1800. Read less

Washington Talent is a one of a kind one stop wedding shop!! Onyx played at our wedding and they were unbelievable!! The guests at our wedding were dancing at the first song. Some opted out of dinner to continue dancing!! When the band started playing "Journey" the band didn't have a chance to begin singing the lyrics because our guests cut them off and beat the band to the first verse!!

Not only was the band great but our photographer, Monica was very professional, relaxed and shot amazing photos we will always cherish. She took both a good number of formal and candid shots.

Finally, the videographer, Derek was stealth and completely in the background, but he managed to take incredible footage. We can't remember or figure out how he got to some of the places he took the video from. The video he edited was perfect.

Washington Talent has put together a great team of people that made my wedding unforgetable, and I want to thank them all very much! During our honeymoon we kept saying how much we wanted to go back to our reception because it was just sooo awesome!!

Hiring Marc for our wedding is the best thing we did! I can't stress how important it is to have a professional DJ who can help your wedding "flow" properly (especially if you don't have a wedding coordinator). Marc played all of the songs we wanted and he was great at working with two engaged folks who have TOTALLY OPPOSITE tastes in music!!!!

Spectrum made our wedding. Our family and friends could not get enough of them and family and friends continue to speak about how impressive Spectrum was and how much fun everyone had. Spectrum did a spectacular job, and everyone could tell. Everyone had a blast, and the people that usually don't dance in the family, I was surprised to see on the dance floor. Thank you so much for everything! We had so much fun, and we are so very happy we picked Spectrum.

We booked the band Black Tie through Washington Talent and this was BY FAR the best decision we made for our wedding!! From start to finish, Washington Talent is so easy and FUN to work with! You get to "audition" the bands, and the staff at Washington Talent really work to personalize your experience. Black Tie was absolutely AMAZING at our wedding -- they kept everyone (young and old), on the dance floor and DANCING for the ENTIRE RECEPTION!! We were absolutely shocked by the amount of people that were ALWAYS out there dancing. In our wildest dreams, we never could have imagined having THAT MUCH FUN at our own wedding (given how busy you are with talking to relatives, taking pictures, etc.). About 10pm, we decided to just get out there and dance until they shut down around 12:15 and we are SO glad we did! BOOK BLACK TIE -- they will MAKE your wedding! Thank you!!!!!!!!

We used the band Spectrum through Washington Talent Agency. We had our wedding this past weekend, and all I heard about was how awesome the band was! If you like a good dance party- this is your band!

The singers are AMAZING, and they will learn any song you want to dance to. They are so good that you feel like you are listening to the songs that are on the radio! Also of note, is that they play the ENTIRE reception, and don't take breaks....I think this is pretty remarkable. They sing amazing songs during the dinner hour and they follow the schedule that you set up. Then they pump it up for the dancing. And when one of our friends jumped on stage to sing bon jovi- they didn't even mind! It was a night to remember thanks to these guys!

Spectrum is an AMAZING band. My wedding was two months ago and people are still talking about how amazing they were. Our dance floor was literally bouncing and shaking all night (literally- I don't think it was well-suited for all the jumping up and down!). Spectrum really knows how to get a crowd going, make seamless transitions between songs, manage interaction with the crowd (involved and enthusiastic without being obtrusive or cheesy), and mc your event. The musicians are all really incredible at their craft (I am a musician and they were the tighest band we heard), and the three lead singers are all PHENOMENAL- not to mention super nice and personable. They were also really great to work with- the band leader was super responsive and helpful, working on our timeline with us, making suggestions, and the band was more than willing to learn a new song for our first dance. I honestly can't recommend them enough. If you don't believe me, check them out in person at one of their monthly showcases- you'll instantly just know that they are the band for your wedding. Yes, they are pricey but you get what you pay for (if there are any awesome, non-cheesy bands in the DC area for a bargain price, please let us know, because we listened to what felt like every band in the area and we didn't find them!).

Even though Washington Talent Agency did help facilitate some of the DJ-wedding coordination, my review is focused on our wedding DJ, Marc Wilner. During the planning process, my fiancé and I were balancing our wishlist and budget just like many engaged couples. We knew our wedding would have a more formal setting with the country club venue and that we’d have multiple generations, cultures and personalities to entertain at our wedding – we had wanted a band, thinking that could address all of that. But we decided budget wise, we should seriously consider the DJ route. After scouring the internet and wedding magazines and referrals, we received an industry referral for Marc. Between his professional profile (compared to how other DJs’ were written) and the first phone call, I had a really good gut feeling from Marc – he seemed professional, energetic, accommodating and experienced (a lot of diversity in types of music and nice venues). After my fiancé and I got to interview Marc in person, we both felt that my first impression was spot on and hired him. During the hectic planning phase (which included a cross country move), I had second thoughts about hiring Mark since it was such a quick decision on our part – we hadn’t even listened to one of his DJ sessions since we were confident in him based solely on the interview, could he still make the event feel classy but keep it fun and not cheesy?

Fast forward to the wedding…. Hiring Marc was absolutely one of the best decisions we had made! During the wedding and after the wedding, we got so many rave reviews from our guests about our DJ and the music… spanning generations, cultures and personalities! I've never heard AWESOME and classy used so much in one sentence before! I had thought that pleasing across all the groups would be an impossible task but Marc had done it. With poise and energy, Marc was able to manage the night smoothly which involved multiple poignant toasts/speeches (ranging from seven to fifteen minutes) and a slide show, entertain with new and old school songs... ranging from Michael Buble and Sinatra to David Guetta, Belinda Carlisle and Black Eyed Peas (with good transitions) and keep the atmosphere feeling elegant yet fun. Marc had asked for different lists of songs and despite us giving a condensed version last minute, he was able to pick up on what we were looking for. My family, who was concerned about the pronunciation of Vietnamese names for some of the wedding intros, was very impressed with his ability to announce everyone with conviction (which he made sure to proactively seek before the wedding). The party was soooo much fun we had to extend it to a few extra songs and Marc, once again was there to make things happen! My husband and I absolutely recommend Marc for anyone’s special event…. Marc helped make our wedding day one to always remember!

we hired Marc Wilner to be our DJ, because he has 25 years of experience, has seen it all, and knows exactly how to "run" a wedding. he gave us countless helpful tips as we were planning out all the teensy tiny details for the day of--where will toasts be done, when will the cake cutting take place, where will the bride put her bouquet when she does her first dance, etc etc. he thought of everything. during the reception we loved him because he basically did not say a word! just played the songs and made sure that everyone had a great time. we had several guests comment on how great he was, and my maid of honor called him that week to book him for her wedding! no stereotypical cheesy DJ chatter, just great organization and fun music. perfect.

we also worked with Washington Talent to hire the pianist for our ceremony. we came up with a suggested list of songs to play for the prelude, told him what ceremony songs we wanted, and that was it. my whole conversation with the pianist lasted for about 10 minutes, and then he showed up and did a great job the day of. very reasonably priced too!

Let me start off with a few qualifiers...

1.) I'm not a big dancer
2.) I'm not one of those brides that has been dreaming about her wedding since she was 7.

But...

We both had an absolute BALL at our wedding and my calves were sore (for a COUPLE of days) from dancing so much after our wedding I couldn't believe it. Spectrum was absolutely amazing and ALL of our guests left the wedding asking about WHO the band was.

In truth, that's how we found Spectrum - at another wedding. Within a week we've had friends booking them for their events including our school's annual Christmas party.

When we started planning our wedding, we prioritized a few items and the first was hiring a band. We cut down on flowers, ordered a slightly smaller cake, and made some other small changes. In the end, Spectrum was worth EVERY penny and truly made the event GREAT for both us and our guests.

I can't say enough about how professional and flexible they were.

A few examples:

1.) My father insisted on playing "the" Greek wedding song on his clarinet for the reception and somehow conned my aunt into joining. The band leader called to check in about the event and asked me to send a copy of the song so that they could back him up in case things got rough. In the end, Spectrum learned the entire song and accompanied my dad on his clarinet. He felt like a rock star and even got to jump in the dancing towards the end of the song.

2.) We were, as newlyweds tend to be, completely caught up in the evening and visiting with guests and the band leader caught up with us to make sure that we were on time for our cake cutting before the catering crews departed. Throughout the entire four-hour reception, Spectrum took ZERO breaks and was an almost over-achieving MC in terms of keeping us on track throughout the night.

I just wish that we had more excuses to hire a band during the next few years of our lives!

We will HIGHLY recommend Spectrum as THE band for anyone that we know.

Oh My Gosh!!!! Marc was AWESOME!!!!!!!!! I can't possibly say enough good things about him. We went with Marc as our DJ based on many recommendations we had heard about him from family friends, and thank god we trusted our instincts! Our wedding was amazing! People kept coming up to us ALL night saying "he's great," "the setlist is awesome," "who did you use for a DJ? I want his contact info!," and more. Marc REALLY knows how to keep the party going with smooth transitions from intros, into first dances, into dinner, other special dances, cake cutting, and throughout all the traditional events of the evening. There was NEVER an awkward pause or rough change. He was SO good at his job that our guests still wanted more, even after a 6 hr reception!!! He was awesome. Period! Also, my husband loves Billy Joel and Marc led the most amazing group "song and sway" with Piano Man in lieu of a bouquet/garter toss (we didn't want to do those tosses). It was the best night of our lives, and if we ever need a DJ again, there's absolutely no question in our minds who we are using. Marc is simply the best. You'll be absolutely amazed with him and you'll thank us later for recommending him for your wedding! Happy Wedding Planning! :)

We selected the band Onyx, from Washington Talent Agency, for our wedding and what a great choice they are! Washington Talent allowed us to audition bands during the selection phase and so we got to see a variety of bands perform for about fifteen minutes each, which was instrumental in helping us select the right band.

Onyx has great stage presence and excellent vocals. They also, if you want, interact with the crowd and get down onto the dance floor to help rev up the party early on when sometimes people don't want to be the first onto the floor.

David Cohen, Onyx's manager, is a pleasure to work with. He was very accomodating. For our wedding we had the dinner in a seperate room and then later moved into the dance room. David recommended and then setup a keyboard and vocalist in the dining room and we had excellent music during dinner.

Also, after finishing the outdoor garden ceremony, we wanted a complement to our acoustic guitarist (who we hired separately). Onyx provided their excellent Sax player, who was there early and before the rest of the band arrived to play our song choice together with the acoustic guitarist as we wrapped up our garden ceremony.

We've had great feedback from all our guests and Onyx is a band I would definitely hire in the future - maybe for the first Christening in a few years time! :-)

Washington Talent allowed us to audition bands during the selection phase and so we got to see a variety of bands perform for about fifteen minutes each, which was instrumental in helping us select the right band.

Onyx has great stage presence and excellent vocals. They also, if you want, interact with the crowd and get down onto the dance floor to help rev up the party early on when sometimes people don't want to be the first onto the floor.

David Cohen, Onyx's manager, is a pleasure to work with. He was very accomodating. For our wedding we had the dinner in a seperate room and then later moved into the dance room. David recommended and then setup a keyboard and vocalist in the dining room and we had excellent music during dinner.

Also, after finishing the outdoor garden ceremony, we wanted a complement to our acoustic guitarist (who we hired separately). Onyx provided their excellent Sax player, who was there early and before the rest of the band arrived to play our song choice together with the acoustic guitarist as we wrapped up our garden ceremony.

We've had great feedback from all our guests and Onyx is a band I would definitely hire in the future - maybe for the first Christening in a few years time! :-) Read less

Onyx was sensational in every respect. They were willing to learn new songs. We loved the way they move the party along, especially how the band members get out in the audience and sing and dance. That's the coolest thing ever! Their playlist is perfect for all ages of guests. A very professional group.

My husband and I hired the band SPECTRUM through Washington Talent for our wedding reception in July, 2010 and our expectations were FAR surpassed! They were very professional from our first introduction to the end of our event but we were mostly impressed by their wonderful talent and ability to read the crowd.

Everyone had a blast at our reception and it was mostly due to Spectrum! They got everyone on the dance floor and even did an amazing job preforming our first dance and the father/daughter dance. We could not have asked for more and we HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a GREAT band!!

Marc Wilner was great to work with. My wife and I needed a last minute change to the contract for Marc to arrive early and provide microphones and a speaker for our wedding ceremony.

We used the band Full Circle for our July wedding and they were AMAZING! My husband was not thrilled of the idea of having a band instead of a DJ and he was pleasantly surprised about how great they were. We decided to go with them based off their performance at my sister’s wedding which was 7 years ago and they did not disappoint. Carroll the lead singer is a great performer and made sure to get everyone out on the dance floor and singing. We still hearing from our guests about the great job that they did and how much fun they had. Thank you for helping to make our wedding such a great day

Onyx was HANDS DOWN the best wedding band I have ever heard. People are still talking about the band at our wedding. The dance floor was packed the entire evening and I was dripping in sweat (not the greatest look for a bride, but I couldn't stop dancing)!! They were also extremely easy to work with. I was a little nervous to hear them at my wedding since I never went to any of their open houses, so I had never heard them live. When I watched their promo video they were already on hold for another bride. I said I would book them right away and the other bride wasn't ready to make a final decision so she removed her hold. I booked them based on their video and they completely exceeded all my expectations. Thank you Onyx and the Washington Talent team for keeping my wedding going all night long!!!!

We had our wedding a few weeks ago and used Washington Talent to book the band Onyx. Washington Talent was first rate all the way with the booking of the band. A very easy experience for what is a very complicated process (wedding planning).

The band was simply amazing. I would gladly endorse and recommend Onyx to anyone planning a wedding. Energetic, engaging, great musicians, great music, great people. I know that wedding bands can be cheesy but such is not the case with Onyx. They put on a tremendous show without stealing the show. Weeks later I'm still having people talk to me about how great the band was.

Let's face it, a wedding reception is made memorable by the music and the dancing. Onyx is the best in the business and is guaranteed to get everyone on the floor. You cannot miss with them.

Best Wedding Ever...I just wrote this about the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club but I feel like the Millenium Band also MADE the wedding!!! All of our guests LOVED the band!!! The entire Garden Room at the CBBC was filled with guests dancing the night away. Travis Tucker and his band really get the guests up and moving!!! They have an amazing amount of ENERGY! They were a complete joy to work with from start to finish. My husband wanted bass...we had a young wedding, so he wanted the music booming and it was! They did everything we wanted! We had an amazing lighting package that made the room look like a nightclub. It was hot pink (one of our colors). The photos from the night in that lighting are so awesome! My Dad wanted to sing a song to my husband and I so he practiced with the band one day before the wedding. He got a little choked up, so Travis sang in the background and NO ONE knew that my Dad even messed up. The ceremony music was beautiful...the music they played at the reception was perfect. They were just SOOOO much fun. I really hope I get the opportunity to go to a wedding with the Millenium band so I can just enjoy:) They are an outstanding band for any function that you want your guests to get up and move...a very talented and fun group!

We had the band Onyx at our wedding last month and they were fantastic. Even before the wedding they were in contact with us to make sure they knew what we wanted and were extremely professional throughout the whole process.

We wanted our wedding to be a really fun, upbeat party and Onyx made sure that was the case. They played great songs that were fun to dance to, some oldies for my parents and their friends plus some modern stuff that the younger crowd would love. The great thing is that everyone loved it all. The dance floor was packed the entire night and people are still telling us how great the band was.

Bottom line...we highly recommend using Onyx for your wedding if you want your guests to have a great time :)

My wife and I were married in early June of this year. Let me just say that Onyx was unbelievable. They completely surpassed my lofty expectations. I heard throughout the wedding that they were the best wedding band anyone had ever seen – and I agree. Additionally, as a seasoned wedding attendee, I can say that I have never seen the dance floor fill up so quickly following dinner. The party never stopped.

As for Washington Talent Agency, their team is top notch. We had a few 'out of the box' requests which they met perfectly. They were responsive, fair and professional.

I would recommend both Onyx and Washington Talent Agency to anyone. They made the greatest day of our lives that much better.

Onyx was the best wedding band I have ever seen. Our guests went on and on about how wonderful the selection of music was how cool the musicians were and how amazing they were overall. They also bent over backwards for us. They provided additional sound before their contracted time for a very reasonable price and checked in throughout the night to see if we had any additional requests. They are such a wonderful band and worth every penny!

Four months before our wedding we decided to switch from a DJ to the band Onyx and it made all the difference in terms of keeping the party going at the reception. They were on time, professional, engaged the children on the dance floor showing them different dance moves, etc. (all while singing) and the MC touched base with us throughout the reception to make sure everything was going as planned. We had a 5 hour reception and the dance floor was full until the very end.

We used Black Tie and they were AWESOME! I am not kidding when I say that everyone loved them. They kept everyone on their feet the entire night. So many people asked me if they had an album because they loved them so much. And people also jokingly said that they want them at every event they go to, even minor events like birthdays and holidays. They have great energy and are very talented musicians and singers.
Steve Shannon, at Washington Talent, was so easy to work with. He sent us tons of information and was the one who suggested Black Tie for us. Strickland Bonner is the band leader, and he is the nicest guy! He called right after we booked just to check in and say hi. We also talked with him right before our wedding and he seemed really excited--they bring that excitement with them for sure.
They were great with the few kids we had there, really interacting with them, and other guests too!
They came super early to set up and were incredibly professional. They were awesome. Definitely go listen to one of their audition nights---you will be blown away!!

Onyx played at our wedding reception in May 2010, and they did an absolutely fantastic job. They had nearly all of our 140+ guests up and dancing for much of the reception, from our 20-something friends to our 70-something relatives and everyone in between. The musicians and singers are all incredibly professional and talented -- Ginny in particular is a force to be reckoned with! -- and the band was wonderful to work with leading up to the big day. They were very accommodating of our requests, and they put together a great set list. Many of our guests came up to us during the wedding to compliment us on our choice of band, and we got a lot of very positive feedback afterward as well. We would recommend Onyx to anyone, and they are worth every penny. Wedding bands simply don't get any better.

Whenever we had a question or concern, Marc helped us find a solution. Read less

We used Washington Talent for both our ceremony (DaVinci Strings) and reception (Millennium band). Dave Sherman was our sales director, and he helped us decide and organize our entertainment needs. We used the string trio format of DaVinci's, and they were flexible when we told them we wanted them to accompany a friend of ours whom we had asked to sing at our wedding. Everyone said the music was so moving; some guests even cried! I didn't want our guest to walk into the cocktail hour without music, so Washington Talent helped provide another keyboardist who played during the cocktail hour and were later joined by DaVinci string trio.

Millennium got the party jumping. We had asked for a few stanzas of a song to be played during our entrance and for other specific music not on their playlist, and Millennium delivered. We didn't even have to provide sheet music. We had a Jewish wedding, so Millennium got everyone up to do the Hora. Their MC-ing was great. They even were able to handle my husband's 85-year-old father, who had completely forgotten he was supposed to do the Hamotzi (blessing of the challah bread). (I don't know what I would have done if I heard my FIL saying, "What? No one told me I had to do this?!" It was handled so well by both our wedding planner and our MC for the evening, Travis, that neither my husband nor I found out until much later.)

During the dinner hour, Millennium played soft music. My father rarely left the dance floor that towards the end of the night, the band dedicated a song to him ("Sexy Back"), which was such a priceless moment! When I asked my Dad whether he even had a bite to eat, he said he ate some, but he wanted to stay on the dance floor while the band played, but then he said, "they never stopped!" We've been to many events and weddings, when the band takes a break and puts some CDs on. Now, I can't ever have such a band after experiencing Millennium. Our guests were in awe when they found out Travis was an American Idol Finalist. He also was at my side to let me know what was next, if we had questions, and helped me decide how best to end the wedding (with a slow song).

We looked at a lot of videos of bands and also attended a number of wedding showcases with bands, so we were well informed of what was out there. We liked Millennium's video and had met one of the members at a wedding showcase in Baltimore. But when we attended Millennium's Showcase at Washington Talent's offices in Rockville, we knew we made the right choice going with Millennium. I knew my guests would be WOW'd by them and they were. Even our guests who were in the entertainment industry congratulated us with our choice of bands. Millennium entertained both the 20-somethings all the way to the 70/80-somethings.

I highly recommend attending the 30-minute band showcases that Washington Talent has at their Rockville offices, and they're free! It's difficult to judge a band based on their videos, but you really get the talent and caliber of the band when you see them live.

We were married on 11/7/09. We were referred to Washington Talent by a mutual friend. Washington Talent helped up throughout the entire process. Through them, we hired a band called Onyx (which is the best band in town), and a photographer named Jack Hartzman (also the best in town). Washington Talent helped us find professionals for hair, makeup, lighting, etc. They are the "one stop shop" for a really great wedding. Needless to say, our wedding was fanstastic and we would not hesitate to use them again or refer them to our friends.

I had Millenium play at our wedding in October and they completely rocked the house! I have never seen so many people on the dance floor at a reception before. They were super easy to work with and were very accomodating to any need that I had. Their song list is massive! From country, to oldies, to modern music... they know it all, and they certainly know how to get people moving at your event. Totally recommend these guys. Great group of people!

Washington Talent has an amazing group of people working for them. They are extremely responsive, helpful and willing to do whatever it is you'd like for your event. The band Onyx was absolutely incredible and totally made the night. They had everyone, and I mean everyone (even people we didn't think would get up from their seats) dancing, the entire night. Everyone was so pumped up and ready to party because of how interactive they were and because of their high energy. I totally, 100% recommend Washington Talent and Onyx to anyone planning a wedding or an event. Some of my friends have already gotten in contact with them about their upcoming weddings. I can't wait to hear/see them again. They were incredible!

My husband and I cannot give enough praise to our band, Spectrum, for the EXPERIENCE, not just music, that they brought to our wedding. They were absolutely wonderful, and our guests cannot stop raving about them. From the night we went to a band showcase, we knew that we had to have them at our wedding, and we are so happy that we decided to make live music a priority at our reception. They invited my brother up to play the bongos, and passed around a tambourine for our guests to beat to the music. They were interactive and SO much fun. We think they really made our wedding fantastic, from MC'ing our event to playing a specially-requested last dance. We also really enjoyed having Ben from Spectrum play the music at our ceremony...it was just lovely. Thanks to Chuck from Washington Talent, and all of the talented musicians and vocalists from Spectrum...you all are truly amazing and helped to make our wedding the best day of our lives!

We hired Onyx from Washington Talent for our wedding day. They were absolutely fabulous! Still almost a month later.. everyone is RAVING about how fabulous they were! They made sure to involve everyone there in the party and got everyone on the dance floor. The energy displayed by each band member was overwhelming!! They played the songs we requested -- but also added some of their own choices based on the crowd and every song was done perfectly. I would say the only issue was I wish there was more room on the dance floor since everyone wanted to be up and dancing the whole time. We took dance lessons for our wedding and sent Onyx the song a month before our wedding and they played it perfectly! They did everything they could to make it perfect-- from making sure they knew our personalities to make sure they were pronouncing all of our parents and friends names correctly.. to suggesting a flow of the day that would work the best.
We know Onyx does weddings all the time, but on our day, we felt that Onyx practiced all year just for our wedding-- thats how special they made it for us!

From the very beginning, we felt so comfortable with him. He listened to all of our ideas and only made suggestions. By the end of our wedding, he had helped make our wedding such an amazing and special night. Everyone at the wedding was dancing even my 80 year old aunt. His taste in music was terrific and everyone had a wonderful time. Whenever we talk with someone from the wedding, it is always about how much fun they had and who was that incredible DJ? We could not have asked for a better DJ. He is worth every penny and we know that he will make your wedding truly special too!

Was it a band or was it a DJ? That was the question for weeks after our wedding and even now! Marc Wilner or as I refer to him as; DJ Marky-Marc is the mac daddy of pulling off a classy affair with fun and finesse. We approached Marc and told him that we have a number of family members with an ear for music and how we wanted a band, but unfortunately we didn't have the money left in our budget. We also weren't sure about a DJ as we were having a black tie affair in Washington DC. Marc's idea-------LIVE ELEMENT!!! Talk about a hit!! Marc and his crew could do anything you threw at them. If you?re like us and want your greatest hits to be sung by the actual performer (DJ) they will do it. If you want your poppy-hip hoppin songs to be sung by a live singer----they will do it. If you want your Frank and Dean to be sung by Frank but don't want to DJ the song----they do it! Live element was like nothing we have ever seen before. We had multiple singers, a drummer / dj, and a mc! They live performed the songs we were soo hesitant to do and could get the guests grooving to Frank---to Black Eyed Peas---to the massive horah!!

Live element...one word----AWESOME

After auditioning a handful of talented and wonderful bands through Washington Talent, we chose Black Tie as the band for our July 18th wedding. First off, the service and responsiveness from Washington Talent was superb. They were so easy to work with, and it was such a relief to be able to hear and meet the bands before having to pick one. We are SO glad we went with Black Tie. Strickland, the band leader, and the rest of the band are amazing. From my first meeting with Strickland until my wedding day, he was available to me and accomodating. He went above and beyond to help make sure my wedding reception ran smoothly (and it did run perfectly with his direction). The music was to die for, every guest was on the dance floor from the first song through the last. We are still getting compliments on the music, and many people have told us it was the best band they had ever heard at a wedding. I must agree. They were so much fun, and the perfect music choice for our wedding. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a high energy, talented, and fun band.

Wow! I am so happy we chose Millennium as the band for our wedding! They were absolutely fantastic! Our guests are still talking about them and telling us they were the best wedding band they have ever heard! Our New York guests even asked them if they would travel! Everyone was up dancing all night! Booking through John Hall, who is also the bandleader, was a stress free experience. We also contracted three of the band memebers to play during our ceremony. John coordinated all of the details with our Cantor ahead of time and it all turned out great! The band checked in several times during the evening to make sure everything was going ok. I also saw them touch base with the photographer and videographer several times, letting them know of upcoming shots they may want to capture. Three of the vocalists were out on the dance floor all night, even showing off some of their dance moves! My seven year old flower girl thuoght it was so cool when they had her go on stage to dance and sing to one of her favorite songs. Millennium really helped to make our wedding a blast!

Fabulous, amazing and awesome were the three main words my guest used to describe the band ONYX! They were incredible. My husband and I only had one goal and that was to have every one dancing. The band more than exceeded our expectations! The main singers were out on the floor engaging guests, singing, dancing! They did such an amazing job, it felt like they were friends celebrating with us. The female singer Ginny, constanlty was communicating with us to ensure things were on track and that we were happy. She also went out of her way to check in with the FOB to make sure he was happy with the way things were being run. A couple of my guests are wedding planners and said if they could fly the band in to host some of their events they would in a heart beat. ONYX provided more than wonderful entertainment, they kept issues away from my husband and I so that we were able to enjoy time on the dance floor with our guests. We are so thankful we had ONYX! 5 stars under rates how wonderful their service and entertainment was for our wedding! THANK YOU ONYX!!

I used Washington Talent to book Spectrum for my wedding. Spectrum was amazing! They had everyone dancing, they interacted with the crowd and they were so nice and professional. Their main goal was to make sure I was having a great time all evening. I have gotten calls from friends and family saying that they were so impressed with Spectrum and that they had such a great time dancing with them. My grandmother can't stop raving that one singer sang "you are so beautiful to me" to her at her table! The have a great mix of all types of music. And they did a great job learning our special requests for the father/bride, mother/son, and bride/groom dance. I also got a lot of comments from people who had small children at the wedding. They said Spectrum was so great with the kids and they couldn't believe how much they were interacting with them. I would recommend Spectrum to anyone! They also did a wonderful job ensuring that the entire night ran smoothly. Book Spectrum - they are great!

We contracted with Washington Talent --through Chuck-- for ceremony music, extra strings , the band, Onyx and specialty lighting for the reception rooms. We found this company to professional and very easy to work with. Chuck was available by phone and e-mail and very knowledgeable about his products.

Onyx--along with the extra strings and ceremony music --was amazing. Their selection of music was perfect for our crowd--the guests never left the dance floor. They even learned a new song for the father/daughter dance. They were a great asset to our party. I would use them again and recommend them to our friends.

Our lighting specialists were creative and clever. They came to set up the day before to assure that the mood was exactly what we wanted. They developed a special design to display on the wall and dance floor that wowed our guests.

It was a pleasure to deal with this vendor

Marc Wilner was a fabulous DJ for our wedding. He was extremely attentive and easy to get in touch with leading up to our big day. The week of our wedding I felt like he was our cheerleader! All of his emails said how excited he was for our wedding - and considering the stress I was under after our Honeymoon lodging plans fell through, I really appreciated his positive energy.

At our reception he was extremely professional. He didn't play anything that we asked him not to. He even took a CD of special songs that I like and played it during dinner - he was willing to work with us, and was happy to take our suggestions.

Best of all - my guests LOVED him. He played GREAT music, songs that I was thrilled to hear but I wouldn't have thought of. He read the crowd and had everyone dancing and celebrating until the very end. I couldn't be happier that we hired Marc Wilner for our wedding.

For my wedding this past Saturday, I used Millennium band-- featuring John Hall, Iggy and Travis Tucker.

They were AMAZING. Just awesome-- way, way, way beyond my expectations. I have already received so many e-mails from friends stating this was the best wedding band they have ever heard. Our crowd was dancing until well past midnight and everyone, including my parents and grandparents, was a sweaty dancing mess by the end of the night!!!

They played beautiful, soft music during dinner and checked in a few times on volume. They also checked name pronunciation so that every bit of Emceeing was flawless. They checked in many times before the wedding to get all the details right for which songs to be played when and which off of their songlist to never play-- they made no errors!! Every song was beautiful. They even accommodated playing my husband's and my college fight song!

I found them very easy to work with-- especially Shana in the office. They also worked seamlessly with my wedding planner.

There are a LOT of cheezy wedding bands out there... I know, I watched all their DVDs. There are many, many bands you can go horribly wrong with--- this is NOT one of them. They are awesome, I would and will STRONGLY recommend them to anyone!!

Booking Encore was the best thing we did for our wedding. Our guests are still raving about how awesome the band was. Not only did everyone chant for an encore at the end of the night, they also chanted "one more song, one more song" after THAT! They are so talented, outgoing and friendly. They really went out of their way to make sure our guests were continually having fun! We appreciate all they did for us on our wedding day.

The band leader, Don Harding, was very professional and responsive to our questions and inquiries.

Marc Wilner with Washington Talent was absolutely FANTASTIC! He was incredibly easy to work with, very responsive and listened to what we wanted. Our reception turned out to be a fantastic party and it was all because of him! My only regret is that we didn't book him until midnight. Everyone was having such a great time that I was sad to see the reception end! I give Marc Wilner and Washington Talent my highest recommendation.

This was a very important day for us... The total cost of the wedding was $90,000.00 we pulled out all of the stops. However, it wouldn't of mattered if the music wan't good and people weren't dancing. Marc got everybody on the floor and having a good time.

Leading up to the wedding Marc met with us multiple times, and made sure we were comfortable with everything.

I would reccomend him to anybody getting married.

Everything provided was over-the-top great! Marc provided a string trio for the ceremony, a pianist for the cocktail hour and the DJ for dancing after dinner. We've had many, many compliments from our guests after the wedding about how beautiful and classy the string trio was, what a perfect touch it was to have such a gifted pianist for cocktails and how great the DJ was. The music means a lot to me, and the bride and groom and I are grateful to have had these musicians with us. Each provider was easy to work with, flexible, and totally professional. We had the most exposure to the DJ as he played after dinner for dancing until they threw us out! Absolutely everyone danced, and he didn't take a break for four hours! I would definitely recommend a DJ over a band given the consistency, the flexibility, and the expense, which was a lot less than a band. We were at what is probably the top hotel in Washington, and with these musicians, we had way too much fun--what ever that is! Thanks Marc, Da Vinci strings, Trish, and DJ Elon for helping a busy mother-of-the-bride like me create a lifetime of beautiful memories for my daughter and new son-in-law.

What can I say about Marc?!?! I have known Marc for a while now. As a fellow wedding industry professional (I am a wedding planner), I know how hard it can be to really match couples with the correct vendors. When my husband and I got engaged, there was no question about who would DJ for the wedding. Unfortunately my schedule was so busy that Marc didn't get a chance to meet my husband until the day of the wedding!! Marc's personality and style of DJ-ing are rare gems in this business and the raves from our guests proved what I already knew! I gave him the freedom to play what he felt the guests were responding to and the result was nothing short of AWESOME!!! Hiring a good DJ is one of the most important aspects to maintain the energy of your guests - and all of our guests said that ours was the best wedding they had ever attended! Everyone was dancing and enjoying themselves until the final song - so much so that I had to ask them to leave because the event staff had to clean. My husband and I couldn't be happier with the way things turned out!!!

I was very worried about having a DJ because I wanted a tasteful wedding, but I still also wanted everyone to have fun. I went with DJ Lance off of the site and I have no regrets. He worked well at communicating with me and helping me understand the layout of our event. He understood the types of music to play and even played songs my guests requested. The reception was A BLAST because he was so fun and he read my crowd perfectly. The guests fed off of his energy and he fed off of theirs. AND he realized the wedding was about us and instead of stealing the show (as a lot of DJs tend to do) he made the whole evening about us and our guests. He was wonderful!

We were worried about the DJ at our wedding and Marc put us at ease every step of the way. He helped us pick out music and seemed excited to be working with us. He knew the ins and outs of performing as a DJ and really made our wedding PERFECT!!! I do not think we would have had the great party that we did without him. He knew just when to play certain music and when to cut a song off. He was also dressed very professionally and took great care of us. I would reccommend him to anyone looking to make the reception/wedding day ROCK!!

We booked Angel as the DJ for our wedding. He 100% exceeded our expectations. He brought an assistant (LA) who was absolutely amazing. Everyone was dancing from beginning to end, the last song of the night was played and the floor was still packed and our reception was 6 hours long! We wanted our reception to be one big party and it was thanks to Angel and LA. Family and friends have not stopped talking about it and people keep telling us that it was the most fun that they have ever had at a wedding and they always say that the DJ was amazing. I saw family members dancing that I had never seen dance before in my life.

My husband is Armenian so to honor his culture, family and friends at the wedding we compiled a few CD's of Armenian music for Angel to play, and we made a small list of certain songs that we wanted to hear. We provided all of this with the request that he use his own judgment on whether or not to play them, and he did exactly that and it what wonderful. The last thing we wanted was for everyone to be sitting around not enjoying the music and dancing just because the were playing music that we wanted.

Angel & LA - Thank you both so very much for helping to make our reception everything that we wanted and more. And for making it one of the funnest nights that we have had so far!

We used Washington Talent Agency to secure our band called PRELUDE. Having been lucky enough to experience Prelude at a Christmas dance where we couldn't bear to sit out a single dance, we couldn't bear the thought of getting married and not having them for our band! The members of Prelude are not only extremely talented, but they have an enthusiasm that is contagious to all who come within listening distance and an energy level that knows no bounds! They went out of their way to accommodate our requests even to the point of rehearsing with my honey who surprised me by crooning a Frank Sinatra love song at our reception! We loved working with them as much as we loved dancing to their music! Before hiring a DJ, give Prelude a listen. You can go online to the Washington Talent Agency, check out their bands, and they will send you dvd's of those you think you might be interested in hiring. Prelude worked wonderfully for us; but we heard High Society at a friend's wedding that was in a much larger venue, and they were incredible also. Just be prepared to dance and have fun!
