Onyx surpassed every expectation that we had! Our Wedding band was probably the highest priority on our list during wedding planning and we could not be any happier with choosing Onyx!
We saw Onyx at a showcase and saw all of the positive reviews online and were really excited to have them play our wedding – we were blown away by the evening! We had a bit of non-traditional wedding with no sit down dinner, and the band was perfect at reading the room and playing the perfect music for what was happening. We had an epic dance party for HOURS after food was finished and we received compliments all night and in the days and weeks to follow! We heard “this is the best wedding band we’ve ever seen” on countless occasions. They were truly amazing. It is hard to overstate how easy David and Onyx made the entire process. They were extremely communicative, assuaged all of our concerns, are detail oriented, and really just lovely people. Would recommend Onyx millions of times over for any of your needs! They are the best!!

You must chose onyx for your wedding

We had Onyx play at our wedding on 12.17.22 and they completely exceeded our expectations! The band immediately had the crowd going! They were interactive with us and our guests! They put on our cowboy hats and sunglasses we handed out, pulled us on stage, came out into the crowd and made us feel like we were at the coolest concert! The instrumentalists and the singers are beyond talented and fun. Choosing Onyx as our band was our best decision. They were communicative with us throughout the planning process, met with us multiple times to ensure they understood what we wanted and learned multiple songs for us. If you want to have the most fun wedding you must chose them!

Amazing experience!

We wanted an amazing live band for our Nov. 10 wedding, and Onyx MORE than delivered!!!! They kept the dance floor full all night long, and they learned 3 new songs for our special dances. Everyone from Washington Talent and Onyx were incredible to work with, and they gave us a very fair price for what was included. I plan to recommend Onyx to anyone planning a wedding. 5 stars across the board.
