About this pro
Scott was awesome, and his band too. Really great musicianship and the party loved it. Would work with him again in a second. Thanks again!Sep 14, 2018Verified
Scott was great in every way. H provided beautiful sound throughout our wedding, from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and dance reception. A true professional with great bedside manner. You will not be disappointed with this band of professionals.Aug 21, 2018Verified
Scott and his band played for a memorial/celebration of life party for my father. They were the icing on the cake of a wonderful party. They showed up on time and the music was superb for the event. Very easy to deal with to set the tone of the occasion and Scott and his group were magnificent!!!!May 27, 2018Verified
I didn't personally get to meet Scott but my husband did before our ceremony began and I hear he was wonderful. The music was absolutely beautiful and the second I stepped in to the church and heard the song my bridal party was walking down to I began to cry happy tears. As the bride I walked a little quicker than anticipated when my father tripped a little walking me out and Scott did a wonderful job working with the timing. I'm 100% pleased and will be using him in the future if I need a musician.Aug 28, 2018Verified
There are many things you don’t want for your wedding—but you never think of a power outage. Well, that happened to us. Thankfully, Scott connected us to a string duo that continued to play during the outage and made the guests feel as if absolutely nothing was going on. Some guests didn’t even realize since they were playing and the emergency lights were on. They thought it was the ambiance we were going for. So, with that said, I am extremely pleased with their work. They played beautifully and I am so happy we were able to hire them! Thank you, Scott!Aug 15, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My objectives are simple: - Make sure we are a good musical fit for the client - Find an ensemble that fits the client's budget - Pay the musicians that are working for me at a rate that reflects the level of professionalism that I expect from them Because of my large musical network of professionals - I typically will have a number of different options for a request. These will include different size groups at different prices. This allows me the flexibility to find a group that fits my client's musical preferences at a price that fits their budget. I will not always be the lowest bidder. I respect the professionals I work with enough to pay them well for what they are able to do. In return, I have a wide network of the top professionals in the area who enjoy playing for my clients!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The most important thing for me, is to make sure the client trusts that the music we provide will be perfect for their vision of the event - and that we'll perform in the most professional manner from the moment we arrive. Once we've reached that comfort level, the rest falls into place easily. We discuss the event - how the client wants it to look, to sound, to feel - and come up with the best musical group that fits their vision and their budget. We then put the details in a written agreement - typically with a small deposit that secures the date in our schedule.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In terms of education, I have a bachelor's degree in music education (as a classical saxophonist) and a master's degree in jazz arranging (as a pianist). I'm a member of a number of organizations for music professionals and music educators. I've been selected to present clinics to my professional colleagues at national conferences almost annually. In terms of experience, I have been professionally leading all types of ensembles for over 20 years - from small ensembles up through full big bands. That translates to a comfort level on all kinds of events - from intimate performances for small audiences, to large-scale events at performing arts centers and stadiums, as well as radio and television broadcasts. My process is professional and organized, as I typically manage over 100 events with 45-60 musicians per year.
