Marc Wilner is an all-star! Marc is talented, professional and so artistic. Marc was quick with email responses, met with us to discuss our wants/needs and created a fun and memorable reception for our wedding. He is able to ‘read’ the guests and keep everyone on the dance floor while incorporating our requests.

Thank you Marc and WTA for creating such an amazing evening for us!

The party is over, but we are still glowing. What a beautiful wedding with such a beautiful bride and groom! What fun we all had.  We could not have done this without you. You were fantastic! Starting with introductions, to the speeches and getting everyone out for the first dance, you played and everyone followed. We loved the orchestration and the music and I have never seen such enthusiasm on a dance floor (including myself and Bobby). I never attended a wedding where the guests didn’t want the music to end and needed to be ushered out because the party was over.

Marc, you are a professional and a pleasure to work with. Thank you for making our night so much fun!!

-Best regards, Irene

If you are planning a wedding with a DJ or any event requiring one, look no further than Marc Wilner from Washington Talent—he is THE BEST. We hired Marc for a BD bash several months ago and hired him again for our recent wedding. In both cases, he was the epitome of a professional DJ.  Marc is always available to discuss plans, offer advice and deliver on what he promises. He was especially good at finding specific songs, artists and suggesting music we might want to consider. We would describe him as the 4C’s DJ–Consistent, Creative, Caring and Conscientious. You cannot miss with Marc!

DJ Marc Wilner is the best. I have seen him do over a dozen weddings and he recently did mine. He can work within any guidelines and make it an amazing party. Our wedding was a huge success because of Marc. The music was perfect all night and he had the dance floor PACKED. People did not stop to eat wedding cake until the wedding was over because they did not want to miss one minute of dancing. Marc is very professional and great to work with. He is detailed and organized and wants to make sure the bride is happy. I was one happy bride! Thank you Marc!!!

Marc was the most amazing person to work with! He was very upbeat, flexible, fun and easy to work with. We loved how he checked in with us throughout the night to make sure we were having fun. The songs he played at the wedding were perfect. The dance floor was packed the whole night. We were married almost 3 months ago and people are still talking about how much fun they had at the wedding. We had the most amazing night!

We used Marc as the DJ for our 8/20/11 wedding and he was AWESOME!! Before the event he helped us with the planning and was willing to answer all the questions we had. During the wedding he made sure to play the music I requested along with so many other songs that were big hits on the dance floor! I had so many people come up to me the entire night to tell me how good the music was. I was surprised to find a couple of CD’s that he made for me the next day with some key wedding songs on it. That was such a cool surprise!! So glad we used Marc!

Again, thank you so much for everything you did for us and for making our wedding such a smashing success! I cannot even begin to tell you how many people told us they had the time of their lives. You really held true to everything that you promised to deliver and made Courtney and I feel like the day really was for us.  You exhibited a level of professionalism and care that is very hard to find and even harder to maintain.  It would be our honor to write you a review for your talents and services. I really hope we get to work together again, or perhaps run into each other at another event.  We thank you from the bottoms of our hearts and I know that Courtney was beyond words with the tribute to her father.  It was gorgeous.

All the best, Sid and Courtney

Marc Wilner was the DJ for our wedding and he truly was first rate.  We highly recommend him.  He provided the experience and framework for a smooth and successful reception, made us feel comfortable throughout the process, listened to our requests and did the most fantastic job I have ever seen to keep the dancing going.  It was an awesome party!  We received so many complements throughout the night and after the wedding about the music.  We were blown away by our guests who told us they had so much fun.  We owe this to Marc.  He was able to manage different music genres seamlessly.  We had both American and Latin music at our wedding and he managed it so well that the whole dance floor was filled the whole time.  He’s extremely professional too.  He was there to move things along in a discrete way and ensure we got in everything we were hoping for.  Marc’s flexibility was exceptional and saved our wedding day which was the day of Hurricane Irene.  The storm forced us to move the reception up by 3 hours.  When we asked Marc the day before the wedding if he accommodate us, he didn’t even hesitate.  If you have Marc as your DJ, you can rest assured you will have an incredible party.  It will be customized to your taste.  He will be a solid, experienced friend in your corner in case things don’t go as planned.

At the recommendation of my wedding venue, I hired Marc Wilner as my wedding DJ, and he was FANTASTIC! When I called to inquire about his services, not only did he tell me what he does, he explained how my entire day would go. He knew my venue, knew where the wedding party would stand, knew everything! Halfway through the planning process Marc called ME to make sure everything was going smoothly!

At the reception, people kept asking me if I hand-picked every song and everyone said the music was the best they had EVER heard at a wedding. All I did was tell Marc our style and make a few suggestions.  From there, he went with the vibe of our guests to create a completely personalized ambiance. And by ambiance, I mean PARTY. He even put up with my drunken college friends requesting song after song.

Marc was the backbone of our reception. I could not have asked for a better DJ!

Marc Wilner, DJ, was recommended to us by a friend who used him at their wedding. Once we contacted Marc and talked to him on the phone, we decided to use him without contacting anyone else. He appeared to be a person who really enjoyed his work. Marc was very professional from the first contact until the end of the wedding day. He kept in contact by email or phone calls as the wedding day drew near. He kept the events of the ceremony moving as planned and played music that young and old enjoyed. People were up dancing as soon as the first song was played. If you want a “top notch” DJ, you should use Marc Wilner for your wedding!

 DJ Marc Wilner was FANTASTIC!!!!!!!
Marc immediately won us over and gained our trust during our first lunch meeting. He is a very good listener making sure he heard all of our needs and followed through on everything we wanted.  It was a lovely wedding. We gave him a lot of flexibility to use his judgement when choosing the right mix of songs based on how the wedding unfolded.

From a technical perspective, Marc did a great job mixing songs and executing flawless transitions from one track to the next. We had requested a number of eclectic tracks all in one dance set and the transitions were still as smooth as butta :).

We wish Marc all the best and truly appreciate his excellent work! Future brides and grooms, if you want a fun, stress free wedding planning experience (at least for the DJ), give Marc a call.

 Hi!  We just wanted to thank Marc Wilner for the incredible job he did as DJ for our daughter’s wedding on Sunday September 26th.  The ceremony music was lovely and added elegance to the event.  The music during the cocktail/dinner time was played perfectly without interruption.  Marc obviously is very comfortable with his emcee duties because he did them as if he’d known all of us as friends.  Everyone, young adult to old, enjoyed the music.  I really didn’t think we had much of a dance crowd guest list, but was proven wrong.  A great time was had by all!

-Karen & Wayne

We really want to thank you so much for being our DJ. Everyone agrees that you were wonderful and really made the party so much fun! I can’t even tell you how many people said great things about you! We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family and I will gladly fill out the survey to make sure everyone knows how excellent your service is!! Thank you again so much for making our reception a blast!!!


We had a wonderful time at the reception and much of the fun can be attributed to your being a great DJ.  You did a fantastic job – and you said you would — figure out the crowd and play what they would be receptive to.  The dance floor was hardly ever empty except for the toasts and the cake-cutting.  Poor Dan and Amanda are not honeymooning until June because she is a teacher and they were lifted up so high during the reception and now it is back to reality for them.

I could tell that by watching the guests dance that you were definitely tapping into the music they loved to hear.  I have received only compliments on the great time guests have had and know it had a lot to do with the music choices and your profesionalism.  You and Dalila are quite a team!!

The Tarantella sure got the Italian guests out of the seats and hopping around, didn’t it?  I was really scared that John was overdoing it a bit and he survived it fine.  I will be more than happy to highly recommend your services to anyone who is planning a wedding or other venue.   You were correct in mentioning the lights because they did indeed bring the affair up a notch or two.  I had only one complaint from one of the guests and your colleague quickly remedied the light shining into his eyes.

Thanks, Marc, for being there and I am glad I chose you to have the DJ/MC role for Amanda and Dan’s special day.
