Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 13, 2012From Saint Augustine, FL

They were awesome!

WeddingReviewed on December 15, 2009From Saint Augustine, FL

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.

Review by Eric T.

WeddingReviewed on November 2, 2009From Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

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.
