We are so excited to be using CSE for our wedding! We met with one of the owners in person and both my fiancé and I shared our taste in music and what we are looking to accomplish during our reception. Within minutes we were listening to one of the bands play exactly what we were looking for. I cannot wait to have them

When I was planning our wedding there was one thing I knew I wanted - a band! For as long as I can remember I have loved live music so I knew for our wedding day it was a must. My fiancé and I booked the Rockleigh and then I was on the hunt for a band. Scott from Craig Scott Entertainment was the first and only entertainment company I met with. Within minutes of meeting Scott I knew his upbeat personality was what I was looking for in my wedding entertainment. During our meeting he informed me that he was the drummer in the Craig Scott Orchestra and he then played some songs for me. I was blown away! The band was upbeat, fun, and played all the songs I was hoping for. I was now more than ever officially pumped for our wedding! Leading up to the wedding they were so easy to reach and communicate with. They are organized, efficient, and make sure we are all on the same page before the big day. Nick from the band reached out to us before the wedding to review all our special songs and to run through the day. Along with Scott, Nick was upbeat and made me feel so confident going into the wedding day. As the bride your mind is spinning with all the plans you’ve made, but I knew the band was something that was set, ready to go, and I did not need to worry about it at all!

Along with playing at the reception they also played the piano while guests entered, at my cocktail hour and played the guitar for the ceremony. At the reception they did an amazing job! They played everything from Top 40 hits to Bruce to Sinatra. I’m pretty sure everyone came up to me after the wedding to tell me how amazing the band was! Throughout the night they interacted with the crowd by partying on the dance floor, dancing with guests, and even let me take a turn on the microphone! Another amazing part of this band is, they never stop playing! Throughout the entire night live music was being played and it really set an awesome vibe for the night. I couldn't be happier!!

Matt Friedman and the Uptown Sounds did the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception at our July 9th wedding and I was blown away by how amazing they were! We had a guitar and violin play during the ceremony, piano during the cocktail hour, and the 6 piece band played our reception and I still have not stopped hearing about how amazing the music was!

Matt contacted us a week before the wedding to go through the details and he was extremely thorough, organized, and kind. He gave suggestions when I asked him his opinion and added ideas from previous wedding experiences, but was also very responsive to our style and crowd. The band had great energy and were fun, but also professional and clearly talented. We had a wide range of ages (17-88 years old) and the dance floor was packed at all times! The next day, everyone was sore, hoarse and so, so happy from dancing and singing all night! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Matt Friedman and the Uptown Sounds and I am already trying to think of another event we could have with them doing the music!

We are still on cloud nine from our wedding night! Planning an out of state wedding was nerve racking, but as soon as we heard Escapade and read their reviews, we couldn't wait to hire this band. They did NOT disappoint. They were professional, responsive, helpful, able to take the reins for the flow of the evening, and above all, knew how to read our crowd! From the minute the reception started, they had everyone (172 people, ranging from ages 10-90!) up on the dance floor. My favorite memory was right after our first song, because EVERYONE was up dancing around us. I remember thinking: I don't think this dance floor can hold us all night! Our guests could not stop raving about the band and how perfect the evening was. Our only compliant was that we wish the dancing could go on forever! Thank you Escapade!!!

We used Craig Scott Entertainment for all of our wedding entertainment. Our wedding was yesterday (June 18th, 2016) so our happiness is in the forefront of my mind! I cannot thank Craig Scott Entertainment enough for their amazing customer service as well as execution on one of the most important days of our lives. We had an acoustic guitar for the ceremony, keyboard for the cocktail hour, and Escapade was our reception band. When we met with Scott to try to decide what type of music we wanted, he knew exactly the band for us even after just a few brief conversations and boy was he right! Escapade had my guests dancing ALL night and i am still getting messages from my guests saying how amazing the band was!! They even welcomed one of my guests up to sing with them and it was just the best! I cannot thank Craig Scott Entertainment enough for making our wedding day absolutely amazing. - Emily (White) & Erik Lyman

We had Phase One + a DJ at our wedding and they rocked! the dance floor was packed the entire night. they made their best effort to go above and beyond to make our dreams come true. I really appreciated the band leader Rich, who also MC's the night, as he was detail oriented and very involved in the process. their responses were quick and they worked with us to achieve the specific music vision we were seeking for cocktail hour and reception. their musicians and vocalists are extremely talented. they also provide a sound tech for the entire night which makes such a difference. we extended our wedding one hour and had the DJ play then which was a great touch. I highly recommended Phase One and Craig Scott Entertainment for your event!

The best of both worlds, at a price anyone can afford. The combinations are aplenty. Clients can pick a single vocalist – male or female – or chose to have multiple singers. Then they select the type of musical accompaniment like a horn section, percussion, or keyboard. Finally bring it all together like a good recipe and enjoy the singing and live music with DJ tracks. It's a new, interesting and exciting entertainment option and it is even more cost effective than a small band but with the presence of a full band sound.
