  • Music can make or break a wedding, and Craig Scott did not disappoint. Our discussion, Gary, read the crowd perfectly and had everyone on the dance floor all night. Our daughter and spoke with him prior to the wedding and gave him ideas if what kind of music they did and did not want. He nailed it! We also had a sax and keyboard player accompany him and they were a great addition. The guests all loved the sax player! We also had a violinist and classical guitar at the ceremony and they addition to the ceremony was so moving. I cannot say enough about how much I loved the music. The prices were a reasonable alternative to a live band, and Craig Scott is the only company I found that you can hire dj and musicians. The staff at Craig Scott were so kind and easy to work with. They even sent flowers to me 2 months before the wedding when my mother passed. So, so glad that we found them.

  • Last November my fiancé and I walked into the offices of Craig Scott Entertainment for a meeting with one of their owners, Scott Hornack. It was the first stop in our search for a band to entertain at our September 2018 wedding. Within an hour we both knew that our first stop was definitely going to be our last stop. We hired The Craig Scott Orchestra that same day. We chose to have an 11 piece band complete with horn section to play at our reception, a solo violinist and guitar player for our ceremony, and a trio to entertain at our cocktail hour which consisted of their fabulous Frank Sinatra style singer, Stan Gilbert accompanied by a stand-up base and keyboard. I cannot possibly express in words what a WONDERFUL choice we made! Throughout my ten-month wedding planning process I had easy communication by phone or email whenever needed with Scott, Nick, Stacy and their treasure of an office administrator, Kathy. It's been three weeks now since our September 22nd wedding at Seaso... Read more

  • We had the Craig Scott Orchestra play at our wedding and it was the most amazing night! They did such a fantastic job and everyone was up and dancing the entire night. They are true professionals who will help make sure your day is perfect and so much fun. The italian singer is fantastic, he can do everything from the classic italian wedding songs to Andrea Bocelli. We also had Stan Gilbert and his band play at our afterparty, his Sinatra is incredible!! So many people told us how great the band was. We really can not say enough good things about them, Scott and Nick were so attentive and really made sure our party was the best ever!!

  • Craig Scott Entertainment delivered on absolutely everything my husband and I asked for and more for our August 25th wedding. Having a violin play as my guests walked to my rooftop ceremony space created a sweet ambiance. The violin and guitar at my ceremony provided a romantic feeling atmosphere and set the tone for the perfect wedding day. DJ Carlos provided an incredible reception tailored to exactly what we were looking for! Our guests were mostly under 30 and we wanted the wedding to be a big party- and he nailed it! He was enthusiastic, he had a ton of energy, and he was FUN! He did the Shoe Game so well that our guests were hysterical laughing and left wanting more. My feet were absolutely killing me by the end of the night because we never stopped dancing. I can’t recommend him enough! If you want top of the line, professional, reliable and incredible music, Craig Scott Entertainment is the only way to go. Thank you again!

  • We don’t know where to begin to tell how amazing working with Craig Scott was! They were recommended to us not just by Bari at The Rockleigh but also by a close family friend, Steve Grecco, who is a musician himself. During our initial meeting with Rich, we went over all the music choices we had selected for the ceremony and we discussed what types of instruments would be best suited for the songs we had picked. We had a violinist and guitarist play at the ceremony and a pianist who played as guests walked in and also at cocktail hour. My parents absolutely love Frank Sinatra so the moment Rich mentioned they had a Sinatra singer, we were sold! He was amazing and sounded like Frank was right there in the room with us. DJ Gary was awesome as well! He was wonderful to work with. My family and friends still talk about how amazing the music was and how much their feet hurt from all the dancing they did all night. We HIGHLY recommend Craig Scott, you will not be disappointed!

  • Phase 1 from Craig Scott was the band my daughter chose for her wedding July 21 2018. They couldn’t have been more professional or responsive to the happy couple. From the first dance to the end of the party Rich and his band and vocalists had the guests on the dance floor. They even worked out an arrangement for me to sing for my daughter during the father daughter dance. They’re the BEST!!!.

  • You can't go wrong booking Escapade for your wedding! No matter the age of our guest, everyone was on the dance floor until the very last song. Working with Scott, Kathy, and Ken, we felt so comfortable knowing we were in great hands. Every member of the band was professional and seemed genuinely excited to be playing our wedding. They played all the songs we requested and learned the songs they did not know as if they had been playing the songs for years. The kept the tempo of the wedding perfect, to make sure we optimized enjoyment of every part of the wedding. Our guests are still raving about how wonderful Escapade was! We highly recommend Craig Scott and Escapade for your wedding!

  • We had the band Escapade at our wedding who also played at our friend's wedding a couple years ago. Our family and friends couldn't stop talking about how great the band was! We had an 8 piece band including an added sax player. They also had guitarist play at our cocktail hour which was included. Craig Scott Entertainment was so easy dealing with all the planning before the big day and made going through the day of timeline and details a breeze. Would highly recommend for the price and value!

  • What a wonderful band! everyone was up and Dancing from the start of the evening until the end. Craig Scott Orchestra was fantastic. They met every song the Bride and Groom requested and then some. Professional to a tee. One could not ask for more. We are still hearing from our guests as to how wonderful they were. From the acoustical guitar during ceremony to the calypso?Reggae Trio for cocktails and the the full orchestra for the celebration/dinner and dancing. Each member gave there all and were spot on. Voices, instruments simply the best!! You will not be disappointed if you hire this band. They are worth every penny!

  • Uptown sounds was phenomenal!! Mary and Andrew chose " how long will I love you for their first dance. I had reminded my daughter that sometimes it doesn't sound the same coming from someone other than the original artist. Well , the woman that sang that song did it beautifully. Perfect, it was gorgeous.we enjoyed the entire wedding with then same excitement. Worth every single penny . Laura kowalski. P.s. Loved " smells like teen spirit '" and piano man !!

  • The Craig Scott Orchestra is hands down the best band I’ve ever witnessed. Scott was extremely personable and professional and made sure our wedding on 6/16/18 was an absolute blast. The band went above and beyond to make sure everyone was out of their seats and on the dance floor. They interacted with the crowd and created so much energy in the room. I truly believe the music is what makes any event! We received so many compliments on how fantastic the band was. I will definitely be recommending them to anyone who is looking for live music at their wedding/event!

  • I got married at the Pearl River Hilton 6/2/18. I had heard The Craig Scott orchestra at other friends weddings, and they were always great. But I swear they rocked harder than ever at my wedding!! The band goes above and beyond to ensure your wedding day is EXACTLY as you want it! You won’t have to worry about a thing! They honor song requests of your choosing, are so easy and pleasurable to work with, and deliver the most amazing sound! The horns, the singers, their performance - it’s all too notch! Scott (the drummer and band leader) is so high energy and will have you excited from the minute you speak to him! He also made sure halfway through the night that me and the groom were happy and doing good! They will literally learn any song for you, and perform it like they have been singing it since day one! You cannot go wrong with hiring this band - in fact if you don’t use them you are making a HUGE mistake!
