Hey Michael,

I just wanted to write you a quick note to say thanks. To put it simply, the band was PHENOMENAL. We loved them. The guests loved them. Their timing and song selection were perfect.  They read the crowd and just kept things going perfectly. The highlight of the wedding for me was looking over at the dance floor around 11pm when Caroline and I were grabbing a moment of peace off to the side and the entire dance floor was packed and going nuts.

If there is a preferred site you have for reviews, please let me know. I would recommend you guys to anyone.

Thankfully,

Jim

Star Talent All Stars Dance Band performed at the Rockleigh Country Club for a beautiful wedding reception.

As First Dance song choices become more and more elaborate, and unique choreographed dances become more intricate, Brides and Grooms are more frequently asking us for a private rehearsal with the band.  This would usually take place during the cocktail reception and “no one has to know.”  A run through with the band can help make the “Official” Fist Dance flow more confidently and smoothly.  This couple created a fantastic presentation and we say Bravo!!

Hi Michael & The All Stars Band,

Words cannot describe how happy we are with the beautiful night of music you made possible for us!  Everyone who attended Dina & Tom’s wedding could not stop gushing about your amazing band. You guys are true professionals with exceptional musical talent, incredible work ethics and willingness to go an extra mile to make our celebration special.

You satisfied all of our requests for Irish, Greek, Jewish and Russian music so everyone felt special and could dance and enjoy their own melodies.  When the band was on a break, you kept playing beautiful music instead of just putting a recording on.  Special thanks to our bandleader for making it possible for me to sing the song I used to sing to my daughter when she was young.  It made the celebration so much more meaningful to all of us!

Wow, what a treat: amazing instruments and voices, just-in-time perfect announcements and a warm spirit!  We could not have dreamed of anything better!

Thank you so very much for the memorable night!

Sincerely,

Inna and Ilya

We just got back to LA after a whirlwind post wedding week.
We wanted to say thank you so much.  You are such a pleasure to work with and really helped so much with all our music and sound.  We had a really great time.
Everyone LOVED the band and my only regret about the party is that we didn’t have them play more.
But they were great and you and your company are great so A MILLION THANK YOUS.
Looking forward to working with you again in the near future.
All best,
L & J

Star Talent All Stars Band performed for a fantastic wedding at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York.  The groom’s letter:

Hello Michael,

I wanted to write to thank you and the All Stars Dance Band for making my wedding a truly unforgettable occasion.

I’ve had so many people ask me where I found your band and say they were the best band they have ever heard at a wedding.  Even my uncles, who never dance joined in on the dance floor!

Please thank your piano player for backing up my wife’s sister when she sang “Sisters” from White Christmas for her wedding toast.  Also, the lead male vocal for joining us on the dance floor while singing Michael Jackson. My personal favorite was ending the night with “Empire State of Mind” with the view of the bright lights and the big city from the ballroom of the Mandarin Oriental high above Columbus Circle.

I will share with you pictures when we get them from our photographer, but I wanted to reach out and thank you for all your efforts.  You guys were such a big part of the best day of my life, I can’t thank you enough.

Regards,
Jeffrey

Dear Michael and The All Stars,
 

Just quick note to let you know that everything was incredible….it was truely magic. What a talented group of musicians- the ceremony music was moving, the cocktail hour was enjoyable, and the band was a slammin’ good time.

 

I received so many compliments on all of them- thank you for contributing to the success of our night. So many people told me this was “the best wedding they have ever attended” and I know you should take credit for much of the success. Can’t thank you enough. Next time I need music- you will be the first person I call. I will spread the good word in the meantime.

 

All my best,

Liz and Shaun

The First Dance "Wild Horses"

 

Star Talent All Stars Dance Band  performed at a beautiful tented wedding reception in Westchester last week.

First Dance:  

“Wild Horses” – The Rollings Stones classic, however the version requested was the Alicia Keys / Adam Levine (Maroon 5) duet rendition below:


 

 

Hi Michael!

I just wanted to thank you and the band for doing an amazing job at our wedding! You have no idea how many people have complimented the band (above all else)! I have gotten so many “that is the best band we have ever heard” comments. Their rendition of “Wild Horses” was UNBELIEVABLE!  Better than the Adam Levine/Alicia Keys version (seriously). It was so good. 

Anyway- thank you again for all of your help- they were great.  I would compliment the string quartet too, but I was focusing so hard on not tripping down the aisle that I can not remember how they sounded-! Although I also heard great things.  I can’t wait to get our wedding video so I can really hear it all!

Best,

Leah

Michael,

We just wanted to take a moment to thank you and the All Stars Band for making our wedding a truly memorable event.
From the moment we met you in the office for consultation to the night of the wedding, we were impressed with your professionalism and expertise.  We knew that we were dealing with a class act organization.
Thank you for your guidance in helping us to select the right band for our wedding and for your reassurance during the planning process that everything would go smoothly.  We absolutely loved the All Stars Band and to this day we continue to receive compliments from many of our guests about the amazing band.

Our guests never got a chance to rest or eat because the music never stopped!
The dance floor was always packed and people really seemed to enjoy themselves.

Thank you so much for helping to make it a night to remember.  We will definitely recommend Star Talent to any of our many friends who are in the band selection process for their upcoming weddings!
Best regards,
-Jonathan and Tiffany
