ONYX

 

The Wedding Band.

Flagship entertainment group at WTA for more than 20 years and the #1 wedding band in Maryland, Virginia & Washington, D.C.!
Extraordinary elegance and style, ONYX will have the dance floor packed and your guests in high spirits. 
Bandleader, Robert Sherman, is the backbone of the band, “King of the Drums”, and has been since their first event. He’s not just an exceptional drummer, but we’ll put him up against any DJ when it comes to calling the perfect song for an event. Helping to keep the band at the top of its industry, is ONYX’s famous front line: Smitty, Ginny, Kevon & Cris. Smitty is the handsome baritone with vocal talent that carries a unique ability to mimic the greats throughout time, while still creating a performance style of his own. Ginny is polished and professional with and electric personality, and one of the top WTA voices of all time. Kevon is the fresh, exciting with a sound all of his own that make ladies adore and the crowds love him. His stage presence is only rivalled by Cris’ beauty, poise and energy that her years of international singing experience has brought her.

The backline of the ONYX is anchored by David Cohen. An outstanding musician with skills that range from keys to sax, vocals to sound man, not to mention he is Washington Talent’s CFO and is always available to you when needed! Bending the strings on the guitar as well as adding an extra voice to the Front Fab 4, is the incomparable Fred Moss on guitars and vocals. The energetic and extremely talented guitarist will have you in awe of his talent and begging for more song. The talent doesn’t end there; returning to their roots, enters Rob “Fonty” who flanks David as a 2nd keyboardist to add an extra punch of sound that one can only get with dueling keys.

ONYX is truly at the top of their game in talent, repertoire and looks.

Your wedding dreams become a reality with ONYX!

Onyx …almost the entire group of guests danced to the point of exhaustion!! My hubby couldn’t roll over in bed that night because he said he hurt too much!! You were amazing and did such a wonderful job with the Polkas and the Polish traditions. Ginny, “my mom said you were great singing the Serdecznz Matko”. She is very hard to please… so know that you did a great job!! My guests said that you were the best band they ever heard!! Thank you so much for all of your efforts ..David …you pay close attention to detail and I appreciated all of the efforts you put into helping everything go according to the plan!!!

Just got back from our honeymoon, and want to express how much we LOVED working with WTA. They took care of our ceremony music (cello and violin from DaVinci Strings) and our reception music (Onyx!!). All musicians allowed us to pick exactly what we wanted and guided us through everything. Onyx even learned a new John Legend song “You and I” just for our first dance! Having seen Onyx at many other events, we knew we had to have them as our wedding band, and are so glad we did, because they are THE BEST, no question whatsoever!!!! We greatly enjoyed ourselves as did all of our friends and family…I am sure for years they will still be talking about how good the band was and that it was the best wedding ever! We couldn’t agree more and are very thankful for all of WTA expertise in planning and for making everything go so smoothly and perfectly! We will certainly recommend Onyx & Divinci Strings and it’s services to all of our friends who are newly engaged!
Sincerely, Shaun & Rachel Elhai
ONYX, from Washington Talent Agency, was AMAZING. They worked with us to create a reception atmosphere that was exciting for ALL of our guests, and old, dancers or not! They have four wonderfully talented singers who create fabulous harmonies and they played for four hours continuously, no breaks! We had a guest list full of musicians and everyone was impressed. It’s been almost 2 weeks later and I am STILL getting compliments on what a great atmosphere they created. My husband and I would highly recommend Onyx to anyone looking for a fun, energetic, talented band.Jen
We booked Onyx to perform at our wedding and had the time of our life!!! They had the guests and ourselves on the dance floor the whole night. Their energy level was upbeat and contiguous. They came out on the dance floor and interacted with all of our guests. They organized and coordinated how the flow of the reception would be and were able to keep everything moving. They listened to our requests and even learned how to play new songs not on their play list. After the reception ended our guests came up to us asking if they played anywhere else besides weddings because they wanted to see them perform again. We were so happy with everything from the coordination to the sound of the band. I wish we could see them perform every night. They made our special day everything it could have been.
I would highly recommend Washington Talent Agency especially the band Onyx.
One of the most important, non-negotiable things we had to have at our wedding (besides good alcohol) was a good band. We had heard and read about how amazing Onyx was, and while it was apparent at the showcase we attended, nothing compared to when they actually performed at our wedding. In the weeks before the wedding, we had a call with the band manager and provided some must-haves/must-have-nots for the wedding, but then left the rest to them and their expertise. It paid off because our reception was a HUGE success – more than we could ever have imagined. They were extremely organized, knew exactly what to play at what time, and their energy was so contagious that they got everyone on the dance floor for hours, even people who never dance. We received so many compliments on the band that night and continue to receive them to this day. We would recommend them to anyone, anytime.
We used Onyx through Washington Talent Agency. I cannot understate how amazing they were. They played everything we wanted, and they looked like they were having as much fun as we were. Weeks later, people are still talking about how amazing they were. I can’t recommend them enough.
The band, Onyx, was absolutely superb. They interacted with the crowd beautifully and their music was outstanding. The dance floor was packed the entire reception and everyone raved about how much fun the band was. Would highly recommend Onyx.

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 excitement 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!!!!

My wedding was AMAZING, but the video that David Harris captured for us let’s us relive our wedding anytime we want. I have the video on Facebook, my iPad and my iPhone. We love Washington Video too!

Onyx was ABSOLUTELY fabulous!! They did an amazing job with our wedding and we couldn’t have asked for a better band. They played the entire night long and the dance floor was packed from being to end – and then some! If you are looking for a band that will get the crowd up and dancing – they are the band to choose!!

We went to see several bands that Washington Talent 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.
