We had the Anthony Michaels band play our smaller wedding (~45 people) and they were excellent, far exceeding our expectations. They played a wonderful mix of newer and older songs and were able to match the tone of the different parts of the day perfectly. The combination of the male and female vocalists made for really nice harmonies and gave them the ability to tackle any genre with ease (Taylor Swift to Bocelli!). Our guests loved the band and we would highly recommend them, particularly for a smaller event.

Working with management at Craig Scott Entertainment (Scott and Kathy) could not have been easier. They really went out of their way to make sure hiring the right band was the least stressful part about planning a wedding. We were able to customize the number of band pieces with ease and they were always available if/when needed. They always worked around our schedule and made doing business a pleasure!

My sister used Craig Scott for her wedding a few years ago, so it was a no-brainer for us to use them when we got engaged! Our meeting with Scott was great and we decided to go with the Jay Marton Band for our wedding on 8/1/15. They kept the crowd (all ages!) on their feet all night! Our first dance song sounded great performed live. We got so many compliments on the music and couldn't have been happier with them. Jay checked in with me a few times during the night to make sure things were going as I'd expected, which was very appreciated and speaks to the level of professionalism you can expect. I strongly recommend the Jay Marton Band and Craig Scott Entertainment.

Our wedding was a little over a week ago and we still have people saying how fantastic Matthew Friedman and the Uptown Sounds were! We contracted this band through Craig Scott Entertainment and every one was easy to work with. The band played a range of music genres to suit my husband, myself, and our guests. They even played Rush's Limelight- a request from the groom. They were flexible and played mp3's if they felt they could not do the requested song justice. This was important because my husband and I had a surprise tango to dance for our guests and needed our edited version played via mp3 instead of live. The band had people dancing all night long and I really enjoyed it. Having a great, talented band was very high on our priority list and was worth the investment.

We hired the Harry Stuart band through Craig Scott Entertainment to play at our wedding, and they absolutely made the party! The band sounded great, played a terrific selection of music, and had everyone out on the dance floor all night long. Both Craig Scott and the band were great to work with and really listened to our requests about the type of music and experience we were looking for. I would highly recommend them!

From the first time I spoke with Scott Hornak over a year ago, I knew this was the entertainment I was going to have at our wedding!! Scott Hornak was always responsive and in touch with me throughout the entire planning process! Their professionalism and talent is off the charts!! My husband and I truly cannot thank Matthew Friedman and Uptown Sounds and DJ Frank enough for an absolutely fabulous evening! Matthew had checked in with me throughout the night making sure we were happy and everything was perfect! Everyone at our wedding including all of our attendants from our Venue cannot stop talking about how amazing and great this Band and DJ were all evening long! My guests wanted to know how I selected this incredible Band and DJ and wanted their information! Two members of this Band had played live music during our cocktail hour that was perfect and a wonderful compliment. During our reception, this Band and DJ Frank exceeded our expectations! The Band and DJ combination was fabulous and everyone was in awe all night long! They were fun and interactive with our guests and everyone was on the dance floor smiling, singing and dancing all night long! We could not have been happier! For our main dances, the singers were absolutely amazing and perfect! Both this Band and DJ read our crowd and knew exactly what to play to keep the amazing rhythm all night long! We had special song requests that were played perfectly! Throughout the various music sets, the Band and DJ worked perfectly together and played music accordingly at all parts of the night; both slower and instrumental music during dinner and amazing variations played by the band and DJ (classic rock, R&B, Top 40) to name a few throughout the night. The energy was excellent all night long and Matthew Friedman and Uptown Sounds and DJ Frank made our wedding perfect and always an amazing memory! I will recommend you guys always!

I cannot adequately put into words the praise I have for Craig Scott Entertainment. We looked at a few entertainment companies, but when we met Scott Hornak it was clear that this was who we wanted to work with. He listened to what we wanted and provided us with a variety of different options and never put any pressure on us. In the end, he recommended the band that was exactly what we were looking for- Phase One. Phase One was SO easy to work with and I trusted Rich Bascomb, the band leader, from the second I spoke to him. We really didn't want our music to be the typical wedding stuff you hear and I won't forget what he said- "Don't worry we don't do any of that cheesy stuff." I knew we had made a good choice!

Our dance floor was packed from the second they started playing. They knew exactly what to play and when. Even during dinner they were playing songs that got people up put of their chairs! They kept the energy high the entire night and the vocals on everyone in the band were truly amazing. In fact, during the Mother/Son dance people didn't realize that they were singing "Just The Way You Are" - they were convinced it was a recording! They played music that was current and the classics that everyone enjoys dancing to. There wasn't a single point throughout the entire night that people weren't dancing. They played up until the very end of the night and we had everyone from my friends, to my parent's friends, to our grandparents on the dance floor. I had so many people come up to me during the night and ask me where I had found these guys. In fact, one of my friends actually booked them for his wedding the following week! We've had numerous people ask for their information because they were THAT GOOD. If you are looking for a band to get people up and moving, a band with absolutely amazing vocals, and a stress-free experience, then go with Craig Scott Entertainment.

Print Deal
Redeem In-Store  
The concept is simple. Take a DJ, spinning your favorite songs as you know them, and add in "karaoke" style tracks with several live musicians and singers and you get one exciting party. 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.
