About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

The Revisionists specialize in American jazz traditions with original songs and and arrangements inspired by all your favorites--from Billie Holiday and Duke Ellington to Nina Simone and Frank Sinatra. Whatever you need, we're here to deliver; whether that's beautiful cocktail-hour ambiance or music that will inspire an active dance floor. We were the proud recipients of The Bash's "2019 Rising Star Award" and in 2020 were unanimously named the WINNERS of the inaugural Count Basie Great American Swing Contest. The members of The Revisionists are at the very top of their field and can be heard performing on Broadway, in celebrated jazz clubs, and backing up today's top artists and celebrities. We regularly perform at large private events for corporate galas and award ceremonies, held in such places as Hudson Yards, The Ritz-Carlton, and the Tiffany and Co. Flagship Store. We also serenade guests at intimate celebrations like weddings and birthdays; plus, special events like the Guggenheim Museum's 60th Anniversary, New York Transit Museum's annual Subway Swing festival, and the opening night of City Winery's Hudson River Park location. Our debut album "Let Me Off Uptown" is available on all streaming services. By request, the ensemble can be customized to meet your specific needs. Our standard 7-piece band includes both Female & Male Vocals, a dynamite horn section (Trumpet, Alto Saxophone/Clarinet, Trombone), and a driving rhythm section (Piano, Upright Bass, Drums). Depending on your needs, we can perform as a light, acoustic trio or and even as an authentic 17-piece big band! Let us know if you're looking for Gatsby-esque party music, timeless melodies from the Great American Songbook, traditional or New Orleans-style jazz, a group of incredible swing dancers, flapper girls, or anything else! We love playing all styles of American jazz. If you would like to hear us live we frequently perform at several venues around New York City, including The Django in Tribeca, Secret Room near Times Square, and Hofbrau Bierhaus near Grand Central Station. Check our calendar or reach out to find out where you can hear us live! Why the Revisionists? 1. Professional: easy to work with, friendly, and prepared to meet your needs 2. Ready to entertain: whether you want gentle background music, high-energy brass sound, or even interactive dance lessons for your guests 3. Built-in emcee: if you need someone to make announcements, or simply use our speakers to amplify speeches 4. Quality: full-time professional musicians at the top of their field, each member performs nightly in the NYC music scene 5. Affordable: Customize the band size to accommodate your budget and vision

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on June 22, 2019From Hudson, NY

BOOK. THIS. BAND. We booked the Revisionists for our wedding reception and it was the best decision we could have made. They truly were the highlight of the entire wedding. The band was SO MUCH FUN, and everybody danced the entire time. At various points the musicians came out into the crowd and played, which was incredibly well received by the crowd. Danny was also a joy to work with. After the wedding, all we heard was “THE BAND WAS SO GOOD. Where did you find them?” I would recommend this band for any event without hesitation. They left us with a night full of incredible memories.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on December 12, 2019From New York City, NY

This is a top-rate, extremely talented band - I highly recommend for your next event!!! Danny the trumpeter and band arranger, was professional and an absolute pleasure to work with from the booking process and through the day of our event at Bryant Park Grill. We look forward to booking them again at our next function!!

The Revisionists:

Thanks so much for having us! We had a wonderful time playing for everyone!

WeddingReviewed on June 30, 2019From New York City, NY

The Revisionists are outstanding performers. Professional, versatile and accommodating. Many, many guests told us they were the highlight of a fantastic wedding. We were looking for a jazz band to play jazz and swing standards, and The Revisionists were outstanding in every respect.
