Tell Scarlet is a unique blend of experienced musicianship, energy and passion for excellence in every detail of live performance. We believe that our presentation sets us apart and our authenticity draws people in. We aren't just an event band, and we're not just a good band. We're a group of visionaries who decided to come together and dream a little. We aim to create an experience that connects with and inspires our audiences and radiates an approachability that engages everyone.
A five piece rock/pop/country band, Tell Scarlet's home base is beautiful Savannah, Georgia. We feature excellent vocals, both male and female, and top notch musicians who are committed to providing great music, and creating a fun and memorable event that your guests will be talking about long after the event ends. The music covers classics through the decades, but is played with a fresh, current approach that will appeal to all ages.
We cover jazz standards, classic dance music such as Motown and disco, and we can rock out the likes of Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks and Bon Jovi. We have a great mix of old and new country such as Johnny Cash and The Band Perry, and current pop....Maroon 5, One Republic, Katy Perry...that will definitely keep your guests on the dance floor! We'd love the opportunity to work with you, and customize our set list to include your favorites!
Tell Scarlet can either work with your wedding or event planner, or with you directly. We are able to emcee all elements of your reception and keep things flowing throughout the event. We will always be available to discuss the details with you, and we'll customize things to your liking, or happily make suggestions if you need us to.
We will arrive in plenty of time to set up our professional, high quality sound and lighting equipment. We're liability-insured, and will always consider you and your guests in every detail. We'll keep our volume appropriate for the moment and will be flexible as the event progresses.
We're busy year-round playing public venues and private engagements. In addition to many wedding receptions, we've also entertained at events for many corporate clients, including the Orlando Magic, The Landings Club, Sea Island Resorts, NMHG, and Critz Automotive Group, to name a few. Here's what some of our clients have said about us:
“My wedding day was one of the most important days of my life. I wanted live music, so picking the right band was a top priority. You guys made my dreams come true!
“We've heard you play several times downtown, and have always loved your music selection, playing style, and your amazing sound….by the end of the night our guests, and even venue staff, were raving about how wonderful you were!
“Every one of my guests had their feet on the dance floor at some point during the night. The venue director wouldn't let us leave without introducing you. They said you're a perfect wedding band. I'm sure you'll be a top recommendation at the Mackey House for events requiring live music.
”We're so glad we chose you guys; if anyone asks me, there is simply no better band in the area than Tell Scarlet. Thanks again!”
- Meghan and Matt Hodges, bride and groom
“Tell Scarlet was recommended to me by some members of our resort after they heard them and danced to their music at a wedding reception. Not only are they a fantastic band that is sure to please every audience of all ages, they are amazing to work and partner with and I plan to do so as long as I am in the business.
“Jeff Davis who is married to Mary and the father of Julia along with drummer Cory and Kyle lead guitarist of the band, makes up the warm, family vibe that they set off in person as well on stage. They are professional from beginning to end and prompt in communication.
“Since their first performance with us here at Sea Island, I find as many opportunities as possible to book them. Our guests and member base always look forward to them playing at our resort and I highly recommend Tell Scarlet for any of your live music and entertainment needs.
- Christina Patelidas Godwin, Entertainment Coordinator, Sea Island Resorts
“Tell Scarlet is our first choice in area bands when The Landings Club has an event. The membership loves them which is why they continue to return to entertain our members and guests. They're reliable, affordable and willing to adapt to the clientele we are hosting for any occasion.”
- Jason Griswold, Tournament Coordinator, The Landings Club
We'd be happy to put you in touch with previous clients for reference - event planners, venue staff, even recent brides.
We enjoy making the music that makes the evening. And we'd love to do that for you too! Contact Tell Scarlet if you're interested in taking the next step. We'd love to discuss your needs, what we offer, pricing, and any other questions you may have.
