This band is AMAZING!!! If you are looking for something cool, classic, elegant and hip for your special day this is your band. These are some of the finest young jazz musicians around. Their rep list is filled with all of the classic Jazz standards as well as all of the Great American Songbook favorites. Every single person at our wedding raved about them and said "This was the best wedding band they had EVER heard!" They do not play contemporary American pop music but their elegant and timeless repertoire was absolute perfection for our event. Danny their band leaders is easy to work with and very accommodating. If we could give them a 10 star rating we would!!!!!!

Working with Danny for our holiday party was a breeze. He was prompt with his replies, flexible with my requests and very much perfectly paired with our Vegas themed event. They play it all! Our employees came up to me all night saying, "This band is amazing! - And they're so young!" - they were VERY much appreciated. Every band member dressed the part, was thoroughly professional and got a chance to shine on stage. Their singing talent matches, if not somehow exceeds their instrumental skills! I had one employee tell me when they sang they sounded like a recording - perfection! Even our casino dealers took breaks to just stop and swing. Don't be a fool, book NOW!

They were terrific. The party goers all commented on how wonderful they were. Music was perfect--we had a good mix of ages from 3 to 88--little heavy on the 65 to 88 side as it was an 85th birthday party--but every one enjoyed them. Thank you, Revisionists, for doing such a great job. kelly
