ONYX Artists

Motown, Hot Jazz, Bluegrass, Strings, and more! Hip and Unique Music for your Special Day!

Whether it be classical harp, pop string quartet, prohibition-era Hot Jazz, full Motown, Southern Bluegrass, all-vinyl DJs, and more, our commitment to authenticity in both sound and style brings a tasteful alternative to your ceremony, cocktail hour, or reception.

Book one band for the whole night, or a combination of strings, band and DJ to switch it up! Talk to us about your vision, and we'll help you make it come to life.

We know booking a band can be a little daunting for some of our clients, so we make the process as easy and transparent as possible. Our goal is to ensure that booking the band is the easiest part of your planning process.

In the course of planning and playing over 400 weddings in the past 5 years, we've worked with every size and style of wedding and know exactly what we need to know beforehand so that everything runs without a hitch.

We will work with you or your planner every step of the way to be perfectly in sync with your timeline and your other vendors. Our priority is to make sure your big day is every bit as special as you envisioned it and that every detail is set ahead of time so that when the day comes, all you have to do is enjoy!

We know everybody's taste is different, and we try to cater our songlists to you and your guests. Every wedding is special to us, and we will give it the individual attention and unique flair it deserves.

Home to Oh la la!, the Speakeasies, Bellatonic, the Carolina Gents, the Cool Rulers, the Brooklyn Sugar Stompers and more!

Currently, Onyx artists have bands based in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Paris.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

After both playing in some of the biggest weddings bands in the Northeast, we felt there was a need for something different in the wedding industry. After moving to New York in 2011, we slowly and naturally started this business, led by a true desire to bring genuine and authentic musical experiences to people's events, weddings, and everyday lives.
We truly love the music we play, the bands we book, and we try our best to create live performances that are not generic, and we make sure that they are tons of fun for everyone involved!

Offbeat Bride seems like a perfect fit for us, with open-minded, creative, colorful couples that are looking to create and live a different wedding experience!

"Marie and the Oh La La Band were fantastic! Everyone was raving about how great the music was for the ceremony and cocktail hour. Everyone thought it was so appropriate for the vibe, even the owner of the venue!
Marie and the band executed our song requests for our ceremony with ease. Even a crazy rock song that we requested was arranged and played with ease in an upbeat and appropriate fashion.
I would recommend Oh La La to any bride getting married!" – Nicole (happy bride!)
