    Horizon & The Horns is one of the best bands I've heard. They keep current with music and are always connected with the audience and musical tempo of 'the moment'. We recently hired them for a private event and we're delighted with the results - everyone had a great time, in large part attributed to the music and band members. I've heard them play at a few weddings as well, with similar results. Each band member is fully engaged and works hard to make any event a memorable one. You can't go wrong with this band.

    They did my son's wedding and their breath of songs was eye opening. Just pure fun . You can't go wrong with Horizon and the Horns. You will be glad you chose them. Jerry D.

    “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.
