All of our guests (and the staff at the Rockleigh) could not stop talking about how amazing the party was last night. You were such a hit! The music was the perfect blend of old and new, songs we love and hits for everyone in the room no matter what their generation. The MGMT/Phoenix/Passion Pit section after cake was amazing and made all of my college friends feel like we were back at a college party in the boys basement and there was still a perfect mix of slow dances to get couples out on the floor. I even saw my grandma out there for a little bit. It was everything we wanted and more than we could have ever imagined!
I don’t think think there was a dull moment on the dance floor once throughout the night and even the dinner music was perfect. My dad picked up on the Tom Waits selection right away! Thank you for being so amazing and making our reception the best party we’ve ever thrown, attended, or heard of.
If there are any wedding review sites you’d like us to contribute to, please let me know. I’m recommending you to everyone I ever meet who is getting married.

With apologies for the delay, I wanted to thank you for an incredible evening of music at our wedding. The post-mortem from the night was everyone LOVED you and thought the music was outstanding all night. We totally agree. You were the perfect choice for us and Samantha (who hasn’t stopped raving about your selections.) Thank you for also keeping the evening flowing so smoothly and putting up with the crazy family. Who knew after all that it would be an 8.5 year old requesting Take Me to the Pilot! :
Thanks again for an incredible night and thank you to Justin for helping arrange a perfect tech package, for your attention to detail, and recommending you!
We look forward to hosting more parties where we can hire you!

This past Saturday, our DJ Allison had the pleasure of DJing for Katie Couric and her family in honor of her daughter Carrie’s 18th Birthday. The bash was thrown at Studio 450 and was put on by the amazing Elissa Held Events. Allison taught Katie some tricks behind the booth before the dancing began!
Be sure to pick up a copy of the new issue of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style! We are featured at a gorgeous wedding at the Mandarin Oriental – DJ Allison Kay (pictured below) provided the entertainment for the evening.
You are AMAZING!!!! Loved having you at our wedding as our DJ – we couldn’t have asked for anyting better! You’re the best! xo
I’m sorry we didn’t see you to say goodbye before you left! You did such a great job! We received many compliments on what a good DJ you were and how you did such a nice job connecting the generations….we all had a blast! Hope you had a smooth trip back home! Thank you so much for traveling to make this an extra special event for all of us, and especially for Christine and Frank! You too were a delight to work with! Best wishes for you in your career!
Love, Lizanne (Mother of the Bride)
A HUGE thank you to you, Allison. You rocked the floor during that event. You did an amazing job of mixing older songs, newer songs, indian songs, etc – people had so much fun and couldn’t stop talking about the music.
Last night was the long-anticipated and spectacular annual Gala hosted by The Knot. Industry professionals from far and wide were in attendance to celebrate Bridal Fashion Week and be rewarded for their hard work. DJ Allison Kay of More Than Music performed throughout the evening alongside Hank Lane bands, including a “Rock of Ages” tribute band, and several other ensembles. Henry Marks Agency band leaders Bobby Attiko and Kevin Osborne also performed. Special thanks to Fusion Lighting, for tricking out the enormous event space to create the perfect ambience, Dane Wright, and Creative Games Inc. for creating an innovative live Instagram feed projected onto screens throughout the library. Over 1,000 guests were in attendance, including Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici of The Bachelor, Randy Fenoli of Say Yes to the Dress, and Pnina Tornai, wedding dress designer extraordinaire. 12-foot mannequins modeling wedding dresses, designed by Gala planner and celebrity wedding planner Brian Worley of YourBASH!, decorated the space.

The Knot PR Director, Carly, gave us a glowing review. Thank you Carly, and everyone else on The Knot team!
“Harris & Marcus,
Where do I begin? Last night literally KICKED ASS. Everyone had the best time and it was due to your entertainment on every level. The music was on another level – everyone gave 10000000000% and you could tell. From Rock of Ages to Bobby to the horns coming down the stairs, it was just unreal. And the lighting, the video wall, Instagram feed, and videos literally just sealed the deal to a perfect entertainment experience.
I can’t thank you both enough for working with us to make this a dream experience. This party was by far our best gala and a full on party because of your enthusiasm, energy, and amazing talent. I look forward to working with you both in the future.
And a note from event designer Brian Worley:
“I should be sleeping, but I am still on a high from last night’s event and have not come down yet! Honestly, there are no words to describe what you and your team pulled off last night! Truly a fantastic evening of entertainment and y’all blew everyone away! I want to thank you for the bottom of my heart for pulling out all the stops and just nailing what will be VERY difficult to beat in the future! You have the most incredible team and such a huge array of talented performers! I look forward to working with you many times in the future! Y’all really ROCKED it out!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
DJ Allison Kinney turned our party into an experience I’ve never seen before. Have you ever seen 190 people dance together? Not with their friends next to other people…I’m talking one giant, crazy-fest of awesome? That’s what she does. The music is outrageous and she knows what the crowd wants before they do. She’s perfect.
What can we say…”thank you” is not enough for what you have done for Matt and I. You and Marcus made our dream come true, from your vision and attention to detail, to providing the best music we have ever seen. You are so talented and your band was great. We will recommend the “Steve Delisi Band” to everyone. DJ Allison at the after party was great, just like you said. Our guests have been calling non-stop about our wedding, you rocked .
We love you, thanks,
Nicole and Matt
