We cannot express in words how wonderful Sophisticated Swing was for our wedding reception. We haven't stopped talking about them and how special they made our day. All of the guests enjoyed them and commented on what a great band they were. I would recommend them highly to anyone who would like to have a quality, and professional swing band for their event.

Kellyscottmusic exceeded every expectation we could ever have dreamed in terms of music. They performed all of the day's music, from Processional to the last dance, and they were simply phenomenal. They formed a brass quartet for our ceremony, piano for cocktails, and 8 piece (AllStars + piano) for reception. They scored 3 songs that they couldn't find music for and Lisa Kelly & the group learned a special song AS A SURPRISE GIFT! They went above and beyond and we cannot thank them enough. Hire them - you won't be sorry.

We were lucky enough to book the Kelly Scott Jazz Sextet for our wedding reception in May. We wanted a band that was both elegant and fun, with a musical style that would be at home in the historic Southern mansion where we held our reception. We could not have been happier with our choice!! Lisa was an absolute pleasure to work with, her voice was mesmerizing, and JB and the other musicians gave a flawless, gorgeous and thoroughly entertaining performance. We can't recommend them highly enough. We're still getting compliments from our guests!

I hired Kellyscottmusic for a local fundraising event that was going to be attended by quite a few jazz entusiasts so it was very important to get the very best available! They did NOT disappoint! There professionalism and talent are incredible.The attendees of the benefit raved about the group and asked for contact information so they could book them for future events. My boss is the founder &publisher or Jazziz magazine and owns and operates Jazziz Bistro in Hollywood Florida and has asked for them to play his clubafter listening to their cd. If you need a first class jazz band for ANY occasion, I would highly recommend hiring this group.
