"We got married in Bradenton this October. Black Tie DJ did the entertainment and the lighting and it was AMAZING! They took care of everything at the reception so all we had to do was relax and have fun. I can't recommend them highly enough."

~Karen & Tom

"Black Tie did our friends wedding in Venice 2 years ago and we knew right away that is who we wanted for ours. We booked them as soon as we had a date picked. They did not disappoint! It was soooo much fun. Even my 88 year old grandma got up and danced."

~Theresa and Sergio

"Black Tie does not mean buttoned up. I wanted elegance, Joe wanted a reception that rocked! We got both! Hands down, the best DJs in Pt. Charlotte."

~Brenda and Joe

Chuck and the entire Black Tie DJs staff exceeded our expectations for our wedding day. They provided DJ service for our outside ceremony and reception at IMG Golf Club. Chuck was a pleasure to work with and made the planning process simple. On our wedding day we were given a CD of both our ceremony and reception music which was an awesome gift to have! He kept the party going the entire night!"

~ Kari Walsh

"Our Black Tie DJ was amazing! He met with me months before and made a custom mix cd because the father daughter dance was a compilation of songs I grew up on and was very different. Not only did he make our party a blast, but at the end of the night one of our bridesmaids got stuck with all of our stuff. He helped her load it and even drove her to my house! Now that is above and beyond the call of duty!"

~ Beth Prichard Murray

Alcohol or no alcohol?

By blacktiedjs | May 30, 2017

It got ugly fast. You will quickly understand why you need alcohol wedding guidelines at your wedding. Uncle Charlie liked his liquor. And it flowed at his niece’s wedding reception. Charlie felt as if he had entered the land of milk and honey. (That’s a biblical metaphor for what our culture would call a ‘land…

“Love is patient.” Really?!

By blacktiedjs | April 10, 2017

    St. Paul’s much-quoted scripture passage is timeless: “Love is patient, love is kind…” On the other hand, if you ever saw the classic 1989 date flick, “When Harry Met Sally,” Harry (Billy Crystal) isn’t so patient, as expressed in the meme above. Can you blame him?  Love IS wonderful.  So is marriage.  The couples we…
