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.
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 in New York City and The Ritz-Carlton in D.C.; as well as intimate celebrations like weddings and birthdays; plus, special events like the Guggenheim Museum's 60th Anniversary and the New York Transit Museum's annual Subway Swing festival.
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!
