The Ultimate Wedding Band: ONYX.
Flagship entertainment group at Philly Event Group for more years and the #1 wedding band in the Tri-State Area!
Extraordinary elegance and style, ONYX will have the dance floor packed and your guests in high spirits. Whatever you envision your wedding day, is what ONYX makes a reality!
Bandleader, Robert Sherman, is the backbone of the band, “King of the drums”, and has been, since ONYX’s first event. Also, to give any DJ a run for his money, there is NO ONE that can predict the perfect songs like he can. Helping to keep the band at the top of it’s industry, is ONYX’s famous frontline, Elliot “Smitty”, Ginny, Justin, and Drew. 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 PEG voices of all time. MC Justin is a youthful entertainer and percussionist, who is charming and charismatic throughout your party (and loved by all!). David is an outstanding musician with skills that range from keys to sax, vocals to sound man, not to mention, he is the general manager of Washington Talent so ONYX is always available to you!!
The talent doesn’t end there. Nick Henry, arguably one of the top sax players in the area, sings and entertains, as well. Drew Delgado, the fresh, hot, and newest ONYX vocalist, is the man. Ladies love him, girls adore him, and you will eat him up! Fred Moss, the energetic, and extremely talented guitarist, will have you begging for more; second to none; he rocks!! And if you’re looking for something extraordinary, add electric violinist John Knudson, for the icing on your cake. Don’t forget our trumpet player, another great addition, Brian Sanders, who is not only an amazing talent, but a true showman, as well.

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.

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!!!!
Marilynn and I wanted to say how happy and thrilled we were with ONYX at Michelle and Billy’s wedding Sunday evening. I can’t tell you how many messages, phone calls and conversations we have had over the last couple of days with quest at the wedding and all of them start of by saying “the band was over the top”. When we met ONYX at the showcase we saw energy and you promised us high energy and a great sound and ONYX delivered. Please thank the band members from Marilynn and myself for helping create the perfect evening for our daughters wedding. I want to wish you all much success in the future and I can promise you we will refer ONYX to anyone who wants to have the best time of their lives at their events. Thanks again.
Mark and Marilynn Cohen

We had the band 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!! 5 out of 5!

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 Philly Event Group team for keeping my wedding going all night long!!!!

“Its amazing how they continue to entertain and organize the party. Somehow they manage to know how to please the crowd young and old alike. ONYX will definitely be at my next function.”
ONYXwas the best!
We partied like never before. Ginny was the ultimate party coordinator and made sure everything was perfect all night. The rest of the band was amazing as usual. When the dance floor was too packed, guests were dancing in the aisles. Thank you.
“From the first song to the last dance you played with high energy and professionalism. Everyone raved about the music.”
