I had the pleasure of working with Tony & Black Tie Groove at a recent wedding, for which I was the planner. Although I did not hire them, I’m so glad that my clients did. Tony was my point of contact ahead of the wedding and he was friendly, responsive, and thorough throughout the entire planning process. It was a rather large band and unfortunately, I did not get the chance to interact with each member, but those I did speak to were wonderful and the talent of the band as a whole is immeasurable! They had the crowd on their feet until the very last song. I would recommend them again and again and hope to work together in the future. 

I really hope we can work together again soon!

The entire experience was amazing, they were incredible and they will now be part of our yearly family reunion. The communication from start to finish made it so easy and they certainly delivered in regards to the performance which was as good as I could have imagined. I'll definitely be hiring them for other events as well and recommending them any chance I get. Thank you!

Black Tie Groove in one word is: PHENOMENAL

They were absolutely amazing, professional and their turn around time for responses were quick as ever! My guests are still raving about how wonderful they were.The playlist is up to date and their band members are the best there is. They treated everyone with the utmost respect and if I had to do it all over again – they would be my first choice – no doubt! Highly Recommend. You will NOT be Disappointed…Promise!


Black Tie Groove was amazing! They played fantastic music and kept the party going throughout the entire wedding. All our requests were met. Our guests were raving about them long after the wedding was over. They were extremely professional and organized.

Jones Wedding, May 2024


What an amazing group to work with! From our first time hearing the band perform at our friend's wedding, we KNEW they were the band we wanted at our own wedding! Professional, accommodating, and talented, they brought the energy from the very first minute and had our guests on the dance floor all night. We didn't want the night to end! Looking forward to seeing them perform down the road. 10/10 recommendation!

Oschell Wedding, April 2024

We first met Black Tie Groove performing at the Surf City Hotel in LBI and immediately knew that we had to have them for our wedding one day. As a couple, we really love live music and knew how important a band would be to us. We are grateful we saved their card from that night - it was one of the BEST decisions that we made.

Tony and Erin were SUCH a pleasure to work with directly during the planning process and made sure that any/all requests that we had were thoroughly addressed. Their professionalism was simply top-notch and felt so personalized. They even thought of many details for us that we did not think of and always, always had our best interest (and our guests!) in mind to ensure a memorable night for everyone.

Eric sang a cappella during our cocktail hour and  our guests could NOT believe how talented he was. He covered a wide range of genres that he absolutely nailed. During reception, Eric and Erin stole the show and brought the ENERGY! They are a dynamic duo and weeks later we are still getting compliments from our guests. Black Tie Groove are not just a wedding band, they are full on entertainers!

We truly cannot thank Tony, Erin, Eric, and the rest of the BTG team enough for such an unforgettable night. They are TRULY gems - we would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to tear up the dance floor!

Scheideler Wedding, November 2023

I hired Black Tie Groove for my wedding this past weekend at the Art Factory.  I LITERALLY cannot say enough good things about this band.  From a logistics and planning perspective, the band was right on top of everything.  Before the wedding, they helped me and my spouse think through and sequence our big day, providing really helpful guidance along the way.  On the day-of, they arrived early to set up and rehearse.  And during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, they absolutely blew the crowd away.  It was like going to a concert.  The floor was packed the entire time and my guests (and me) could not get enough.  I'm still getting unsolicited texts and calls telling me how incredible the band was.  Do not hesitate to book Black Tie Groove!  I would do it all over again if I could!

Rote Wedding, October 2023

Ostran Wedding, September 2023

We put much deliberation into which band to choose for our wedding as we felt they would be the most important part. We chose Black tie groove based on seeing them live but what we were really astounded by was how great they were through the entire process. The band leader was proactive with communication, clear and instilled trust. The night of the wedding they were simply fantastic. They surpassed all possible expectations, i have been lucky to see several high end wedding bands and without a doubt Black tie groove surpassed all of them. During cocktail hour the soloist was phenomenal, people could not believe how great his performance was. During the main reception they performed music that got all generations on the dance floor. Their performance quality was flawless and the set list was great. I cannot give a high enough recommendation, I can't imagine why anyone would even consider anyone else. They were simply the best in every aspect.

Lillis Wedding, September 2023

Buffalo, NY

After hearing Black Tie Groove at a friend’s wedding in Philadelphia, we knew we had to book them for our special day. Music is a major part of our relationship, so it was really important to us that we found something that was perfect. We were so excited when we talked to the band and they were on board to come all the way out to Buffalo, New York for the big day. Coordination was a breeze, and Tony helped us every step of the way so we knew exactly what to expect. And still, it was even better than we anticipated. The band was, by far, the most talked about part of our wedding. The charisma and energy they brought to the event was truly remarkable and left all our guests in awe. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind band that is sure to keep the party going all night long, this is the band for you. We hope to have another opportunity to have them back in Buffalo!

Thank you!

The Windlass Restaurant, Lake Hopatcong, NJ
August, 2023

We hired Black Tie Groove to perform at The Windlass for one of our summer concert series and could not have been more pleased. This is a very talented group of musicians who brought a ton of energy to the crowd. Our guests were up dancing most of the night and if they weren’t they were in their seats singing along or simply enjoying the band’s performance. They put on an amazing show and we look forward to having them back next year!

Black Tie Groove is the band to have at your wedding. Our ballroom floor was packed from start to finish with people dancing to their spectacular sounds and enjoying every second of their performance.  Their charisma was overwhelming as they mingled amongst the crowd and elevated our wedding to a level we did not think possible.  Countless guests at our event and in the following days have remarked how incredible each member of the band was and we are so grateful for their talents and efforts.  From the initial meeting, to contracting, and their performance, Black Tie Groove is professional, classy, fun, entertaining, and a pleasure to work with.  We’ll probably throw another party just to relive the experience all over again!  You all added to making our wedding even more memorable.

Thank you,

Joseph and Jessica Brigley


Singer Wedding, July 2023

Black Tie Groove made our wedding! They played all our favorite songs and had the whole party dancing all night. We had so many people come up and compliment us throughout the night how amazing they were. Tony was very professional and attentive in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding. He went over all the music we like and dislike to make sure the setlist was perfect. The entire band kept the energy going all night. We had a blast! Thank you so much to them again!

Mackey Wedding, June 2023

If there’s one thing our guests can’t stop raving about from our wedding, it’s the band. We found black tie groove on the knot, listened to their promos online and we knew we had to meet with them. We knew at our initial meeting this was the band we were going to use and we’re so glad we did! Tony and the rest of the crew was so professional, great communication and just knew how to get the party going. We loved how interactive they were with the guests, that was something we knew we wanted and it was just amazing. We can’t recommend this band enough!! 1000/10! One of our top vendors of the night!! 


Kopicki Wedding, May 2023

Having Black Tie Groove perform at our wedding reception was the best decision we made! This band isn’t good - they’re GREAT! Black Tie Groove  is filled with talent and will bring an electric energy to any party! They put on a show that had our guests on the dance floor from the moment they started playing and kept them dancing all night. They were incredibly easy to work with, professional, talented and truly the highlight of our reception! Our friends and family can’t stop asking where we found such a talented and fun band! This is a band you definitely won’t regret booking! Thank you so much for making our night so fun and special!

Chevalier Wedding, June 2023

Black Tie Groove were fantastic at our wedding. They played the 3 first dance songs live and all of them were so great. Tony and the band were very accommodating leading up to the wedding and especially on the day of the wedding. Multiple times throughout the night, someone from the band would check with us to make sure everything was going well and that our needs were being met. They had the dance floor crowded and provided an exceptional atmosphere for our wedding and for our guests. I strongly recommend Black Tie Groove for any size wedding, you will not be disappointed.

Black Tie Groove is a fantastic, exceptional band, and both singers have exceptional voices.  Not only that, both singers dance around while they sing.  They played at my daughter's wedding and everyone loved them. We are looking for an event that we can go to because we can't wait to hear them again.  Black Tie Groove is #1!

Private Event:
Barnstable Academy Scholarship Gala - March 2023


Black Tie Groove is absolutely fabulous! They performed at Barnstable‘s Scholarship Gala and had everyone on the dance floor! Their range and talent are exceptional.  They were professional and helped make our event a success! I highly recommend Black Tie Groove and look forward to working with them again!


From my first interaction to the last dance, Black Tie Groove made our holiday party absolutely AMAZING!!!!  Tony's experience was recognizable from the start as he guided me through the process, answered all of my questions, and gave recommendations that made the party unforgettable.  Erin the lead female singer has the voice of an angel, and Eric the male lead singer is beyond phenomenal - truly a pro.  My guests' favorite addition was the band's hype-man, Peace, who danced and vibed with our guests all night long.  Black Tie Groove are extremely talented musicians.  I still have so many people asking about them and I recommend them to everyone.  Can't wait to have them back!

Private Birthday Party - August 2022



Any time you’re having a big party there are two things everyone remembers: the food and the music.  You just have to get them right, especially when it’s Live Music. For my wife’s 50 th Birthday Bash I was in charge of music- and thanks to Black Tie Groove, I got it right- Hire them for your party and you will too. Tony is very easy to work with, and we were fairly demanding about what we wanted to hear. We wanted an upbeat party (no sad songs and no love songs) and we made numerous song selections from their song list to reflect that. The band took it all in stride and played most if not all our requests

(encompassing widely different eras and styles!) and did it with great craftsmanship and professionalism. Off the stage between sets they were also very friendly and mingled with many of our guests. Now months removed from the party, friends and family still talk about it. You can probably tell that I feel rather smug about it setting the bar for big birthdays in our small circle- and an integral part of that was the performance of Black Tie Groove. You want to set the bar with your party? Get Black Tie Groove… and make sure the food is great too.

Pyser Wedding, September 2022

Black Tie Groove was EVERYTHING we wanted and needed in a wedding band.  Energetic, fun, amazingly talented, and easy to work with!  They were a key part of the success of our evening.  This group gets people out on the dance floor and keeps them there!  Our guests raved about how this was the most fun wedding they had ever been to, due mostly to our entertainment!  Last but not least, Tony made the process seamless from beginning to end and insured us we didn't have to sweat the small stuff.  Look no further than Black Tie Groove!

-Olivia and Brett

McCoubrey Wedding, May 2022

Black Tie Groove was unbelievable at our wedding.  The dance floor was hopping all night long, with everyone gushing over how much they loved the band.  Top-notch performers, with a huge repertoire of great songs across the genres.  Truly the best singers of any wedding band we've ever seen.  Professional and lovely people.  My wife and I and I couldn't recommend them more!
