A Starry Night Music Delivers Quality DJing Services Without the Gimmicks

By Pamela Sosnowski

"Absolutely no cheese" is Carol Moore's mantra, as well as the tagline of her NYC-based DJ company, A Starry Night Music. It's a simple formula that has served her business and clients well since 1990, and was also the inspiration for launching the company in the first place.

"We were the first in this field to give the alternative of a tasteful DJ and still have a rocking party," Moore said. "When I arrived in New York I was surprised by the corny antics of the DJs. I opened this company with the thought that others would be like-minded. Good taste and extraordinary fun go hand-in-hand."

More than 25 years later, A Starry Night Music has been featured in just about every major bridal magazine, received numerous awards by bridal websites, and earned five-star reviews by many satisfied clients. Moore and her team of professional DJs are all trained musicians; an important detail that Moore says makes a big difference. They understand that every client and wedding is unique, and they work closely with them ahead of time to create the perfect playlist that reflects each couple's personalities while appealing to their wedding guests. The music speaks for itself at every event.

"We work very closely with each client to understand fully what their dream wedding/party will look and sound like," Moore said. "Having worked extensively with many cultures, religions, and customs helps me to easily understand what they are looking for and what they envision for their event. I then work calmly and effectively to give them their vision."

Moore and her DJs have served clients throughout the U.S. as well as internationally, although most of their business is conducted throughout the NYC area. Moore herself studied theater at the University of Miami before pursuing a career as a singer and bandleader. She has opened for the late artist Prince and DJd events for several celebrities and their family members.

In addition to DJs, A Starry Night Music provides professional trained pianists, violinists, cellists, and more who can perform musical pieces for a variety of events and phases of a wedding day, helping to set the perfect mood. The company also rents photo booths complete with fun props and backdrops and can provide uplighting that delivers an ambient glow or color to a venue.

Moore says that a good portion of her business comes from referrals from happy clients, whose impressed friends and family members hire A Starry Night Music when it's their turn to celebrate a big day. Clients also tend to follow the company on social media after an event, and Moore herself follows up with each client for feedback on her company's services.

For Moore, her favorite part of her job is getting to see how happy her work makes her clients, and getting to partake in their celebration's atmosphere.

"I love curating my client's song lists, arriving and seeing the flutter of activity putting everything together for the event, and watching the room being transformed into a dreamland while I am setting up my sound equipment," she said. "The beautiful part is that at every party people are filled with joy, laughter, and it's a party! Who else can say, 'I'm going to work now, I'm going to a party.'"
