We booked Prime Time for our upcoming wedding, and we are soooo excited!!!! We saw 2 of their showcases before making our decision and were blown away both times by how awesome their talent, energy, and performance was. They even took the time to speak with us after the showcase and answer all of our questions. I know Prime Time is going to blow our guests away. We also delt with Alana Shore at WTA in booking the band and she was so professional, kind, and helpful. Would highly recommend the entire agency!!

We have chosen Black Tie to be our wedding band! We couldn't be more thrilled and happy with our selection! The band members are so energetic, caring, excited, and personable! We were able to see them perform at a showcase, and it was awesome. After the showcase the band sat down with us and discussed any concerns and questions we had about booking a band and with booking so far in advance! The agency is very responsive and helpful and you will work directly with a sales representative. Ours was Brian, he is the best! WTA also offers other services such as photography and videography, however, we only selected a band as we had already signed with a videographer and photographer! Check WTA out! They support PA, MD, DC, and VA! You won't regret it!

We hired Da Vinci Strings to play at our daughters wedding ceremony and at the cocktail hour. Fred was our contact and he very easy to work with and responded to emails very quickly. We were able to choose the music we wanted. We were also given samples of some of the songs they offered. They were prompt and professional and the guests enjoyed the music. The ceremony was at an outdoor venue and I wish that the sound was projected more with an amplifier - not even sure if that would be possible. At times they were competing with the the wind and overhead planes. Our inside ceremony site was very noisy and they were i the back corner. The guest sitting in the back half of the room were enjoying the music but if you were in the front half it was hard to hear them due to the loud chatter and laughter. Over all they did a wonderful job and I would recommend them!

Washington Talent Agency is such a pleasure to work with. We booked Infusion (worth EVERY penny) and worked with Alana Shor to coordinate our contract. Alana was so professional and easy to communicate with- she answered every question we had and made the experience so simple, and put any concerns or stress to rest. Infusion was unreal- they are so hugely talented and we can't stop hearing from our guests about how fabulous our band was. Thank you to Washington Talent and Infusion for making our big day so memorable!

BLACK TIE was absolutely amazing! I've been to numerous weddings where they played and I'm constantly in awe of how they get the crowd dancing! They made my wedding so much fun and had our guests dancing and singing all night! They are so energetic, flexible and really take the time to make sure everything goes as you wish (timeline, music choice etc.) Everyone raved about them and I couldn't have been happier with my choice to have Black Tie. I'd recommend them to anyone getting married!

Washington Talent Agency is a well known name in the D.C. area and was our first choice for music during our wedding this month. Marc Wilner was our DJ for the event and did an incredible job. Even before our wedding, he met us at a place and time that was convenient for us to help us nail down the timeline for the evening. He brought a ton of experience to the meeting and gave us a great structure and suggestions while also allowing us to make the final decisions. During the event, the music was amazing and he kept us on schedule! Marc did an amazing job of helping our wedding meet our vision. MULTIPLE guests commented on how much fun the party was because of an excellent DJ choice. I would completely recommend Marc for anyone looking for a wedding DJ, he exceeded our expectations!

We had SPECTRUM for our band for our recent wedding, and I cannot tell you how blown away EVERYONE was. From the beginning, my husband and I knew we wanted awesome music for our wedding and decided to "invest" in a great live band. Towards the end of planning, right before our wedding, I really started to have second thoughts about whether we should have tried to save money with a DJ as our budget was growing tighter. But it was easily the best decision we made for wedding planning, and I would have truly regretted not booking this band.

I had some anxiety if whether our dance floor would be full and if people would have fun.... well I would have saved myself a lot of worry if I had known how great SPECTRUM was. It was worth every dollar spent! Our dance floor was packed the whole night. Don't be discouraged by the initial booking agent (less than stellar) because once you book with SPECTRUM, it is smooth sailing. We received so many gushing compliments on this band ("Best band ever!" "Best wedding ever!"), and it really made it a perfect night.

They were courteous, prompt, and professional. They really read the crowd's energy well in choosing songs! I wanted top 40 and they were able to deliver above and beyond performing current hits. They were even able to do a medley for our father daughter dance. I think also because SPECTRUM is a larger band, it creates a lot fuller sound because there are more instruments in general compared to a smaller band. Not only was the dancing portion great, but their acoustic/slower songs during dinner really set the tone. They also were very skilled at being the MC for the night. They moved the night along well without ever becoming the center of attention. Don't hesitate and book SPECTRUM immediately!

Onyx is AMAZING and worth every penny. We were a little hesitant about spending so much on a band, but they are the best and completely worth it. We had an acoustic guitarist at our cocktail hour and several of our guests came up and said how fantastic he was (most ppl don't even comment on the cocktail hour music!). The band had a perfect mix of classy (ie Frank Sinatra) and pop (top 20s to get ppl dancing). They nailed our first dance and father dance songs and the lead lady singer kept me informed of the schedule every step of the way. She was great. They even did happy birthday for my 89 year old grandmother. 10 out of 5 stars!!

Washington Talent Agency was very helpful during our DJ selection process and provided multiple DJs for us to review and talk with before we made our choice. They offer a variety of price ranges and options so you can select who and what service is best for you. We went with DJ Justin and he made our reception an event to remember! He met with us in person before the wedding to get a good understanding of our style, music preference, and schedule for the day of the wedding. He kept us on track for our reception through careful planning and a calm presence. I trusted him to run the show and he came through, our guests had an amazing time and he kept everyone dancing until the last minute!!
