    “Your band was amazing!” is one of the most frequent comments I have heard from friends and family since our wedding on July 1, 2017. And I have to agree – we were thrilled with Horizon & the Horns! We went with the full 7-piece band and they were all awesome! Amazing variety of music (check out a sampling from their song list on their website - http://www.horizonandthehorns.com/song-list.html), they can do all the classics, current pop music, swing, jazz, rock. Since the wedding, two separate friends who are planning their own weddings in different states have said they are now considering a band instead of a DJ – if they can find someone like Horizon! With a little notice, they will also learn songs – our first dance was a slowed down version of Katy Perry’s Firework (sentimental reasons ha) and they were able to do that arrangement no problem. The dance floor was packed all night and the band also appears to be having a great time with you! Beyond the music, working with Ray Novack is the best! He’s very responsive and clearly knows what he’s doing when it comes to weddings – he thinks of every detail, including many that I would have missed myself! The day-of his daughter Kelly, vocalist and more, does an awesome job of “MC-ing” the reception – every name pronounced perfectly and aware of everything going on. I realized mid-way through the dance party that I wanted a photo on the dance floor of all my college friends (husband and I are college sweethearts) – I went up to Ray, while he was on keyboard, and asked if he could work that in. He got the message to Kelly, she announced the photo, the group gathered and then we were back to dancing – it was all so seamless! Awesome music, awesome energy – thank you Horizon & the Horns! Update: A friend at the wedding just booked Horizon & the Horns for her own wedding!

    This band is simply fabulous! They were a huge hit at our family party, both with the adults and the kids. They covered everything from Motown to the current hits, which had us dancing all night long!! The fact that they have a horns section puts them at a whole new level over other bands!!!

    When it came time to choose a wedding band, my fiancé and I listened to many bands. We chose Horizon and the Horns and it was a great decision. Our guests are still commenting about what a great band we had at our wedding. Horizon and the Horns sound great and they play a variety of music for all musical tastes. Ray Novack kept our guests dancing all night. He is also professional and pleasant to deal with. He made it known that it was “our” day and he would do whatever we requested. Ray had the band learn some Spanish songs for my family. He also accommodated my fiancé, David, by researching and playing a special song for David’s mom. You don’t get that personal touch with other wedding vendors. I highly recommend Horizon and the Horns. They are an amazing band and they are a big part of my wonderful, wedding-day memories.

    My wife and I hired Horizon & The Horns for our wedding reception and they were absolutely fantastic!! They took the time to meet with us prior to the party and go over details, the were flexible on what was provided and worked within our budget. Then when it came time to party they delivered with an exceptional ability to work the crowd and get people out on the dance floor. They knew when to turn it up and when to slow it down to keep everyone happy.

    Horizon & The Horns has played at two family weddings. We knew from the start that they would do a wonderful job, and they did! The wide variety of music accommodates all ages. Special requests are no problem. Their charisma and high energy is contagious. Both receptions were most memorable because of the wonderful job that the band did. Ray Novack is a wonderful MC and the quality of the music is outstanding. We highly recommend them and think that they are a great band for any occasion.

    We can’t say enough good things about these musicians! True professionals! Every time we hear them we leave with the biggest smiles on our faces. Kelly’s confidence and charisma makes her a perfect lead singer for Horizon & the Horns. They always play the top, trending hits, as well as our old favorites which bring back the high school memories! A tremendous collection of sensational talent makes you want to jump up and dance all night long! Five stars from us! Chris & Larissa L

    On a scale of 1-10, we give them a 20! From the moment our guests started to arrive, to our first dance, to the last song of the evening, they had the perfect music for every moment. Plus they do an awesome job interacting with everyone. 2 weeks later our guests are still raving! If you're looking for the perfect band with a vast selection, look no further, horizon is the band for you.

    We hired Horizon for our wedding a few years back, and still get compliments on the entertainment value of our wedding. The band kicks butt, and was really flexible with our event. They are a finely-tuned entertainment machine, having the ability to play a huge variety of music for all tastes and situations. We're happy we decided to pass on a DJ and put a few extra bucks into a live band. It was worth it.

    Horizon & the Horns in 2001 Played at my older sisters wedding. She actually booked her wedding venue around this AMAZING band. Everyone that attended the wedding raved about this band for 2+ years. Fast Forward 10 years later I was engaged. Ready to book my wedding venue. My Mom suggested we find "The Band" that had rocked my sister wedding 10 years prior. I emailed Ray & he was so welcoming & so happy we remembered him. My wedding was amazing. They sang my first dance " At last" Horizon & the horns managed to have 238 guests dance until they played the very last New England great "Love that dirty water" AMAZING BAND ! 5 STARS !!!!!!!

    Words cannot express how absolutely grateful we feel to have had the privilege to have Horizon and the Horns as the band at our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding. They are the most FANTASTIC people, and the most amazing musicians and singers. I have never had such a fabulous time at a wedding in my life (and we have been to some great weddings), and the fact that it was our daughter’s wedding and we were able to really celebrate with all of our family and friends and dance the entire night made it even more wonderful. We had people to our house the next day for brunch, and have received several phone calls with the same comments: “Where did you ever find that band, they were amazing…Never have we been to such a fun wedding…The band was incredible, they played such a variety of music and the singers were amazing!” So many people told us that they thought the band had as much fun as all of the guests and that the band's enthusiasm and charisma really made the night fabulous. Our goal for the wedding reception was to have a fun party with all the people we love. Not only did they make this happen, they exceeded our hopes and truly made this a night we will never forget.
