We had an amazing time. Everyone was talking about how great City Heat was. And when they played our song for the first dance they absolutely knocked it out of the park. They definitely brought the energy and the genres of music we were looking for! Thank you for helping us get everything setup and allowing us to ring in the new year on our special day in such a great way!

Kind regards


Shane & Abby

I cannot thank you and your team enough for such an amazing wedding! Our guests have not stopped talking about how fabulous the band was! You guys completely blew away our expectations. We did not want the night to end! Thank you for making our day so special and for keeping the crowd dancing all night long! You guys rocked!!


Looking forward to seeing you at the Stein wedding next year!


All the best,

Erin & Jared

We are currently packing for the honeymoon, but we wanted to take a moment to drop you a line. We can’t thank you enough for the amazing job you and entire Craig Scott band did. You blew away our guests! We hosted a brunch the next morning, and everyone was talking about how great the band was. We’ll write something more official upon our return, but we needed to say thank you before we left for vacation….


From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for the outstanding performance. You made the celebration spectacular.
Thank you, Scott.


Ps – Scarlet Begonias was awesome!

Lee & Robyn

Eamon and I were watching some video footage from the wedding last night, and we really can now fully appreciate the amazing party the band created for us. The night was amazing and everyone could not stop talking about you guys. I’ve already given out your name for some brides to be! We can’t thank you enough. Please share our appreciation to everyone in the band. You are all so talented, and we feel so lucky to have had you at our Wedding.

Lauren and Eamon

You guys were Fabulous!! Please thank Nick and the rest of the band for the great job you all dad!
I’m still getting e-mails from our friends saying our wedding was the most fun they’ve ever had at a wedding. Frank and I, and my mom who you know is a tough critic, all agree we owe it all to you and the band.
You guys really exceeded our expecations (which were set high to start). We can’t thank you enough for making our wedding a night we’ll never forget. (And from the e-mails we’re getting, most people there won’t forget it either)




Susan and Frank
We’re fresh off our honeymoon and we are inundated with emails and messages about how great Harry Stuart Band is/ was from our guests . We can’t thank you enough for their performance . They had ALL guests dancing and it was amazing to see . It went by too fast is the only criticism. (Which is a compliment ) please share this email with the band and  rich and team . We will be promoting this band / company via social media and word of mouth for sure.
Many thanks !


Best regards,

Sarah & Matt
Hi Scott!
We had an amazing time at our wedding! Escapade was incredible and all of our guests were dancing the entire night! Everyone is still raving about the band and how amazing they sounded! Thanks so much for everything and making our wedding so perfect! 🙂



Kathryn & Matt


Sorry for the late response. The reason for that is I wanted to make sure we conveyed how amazing the night and experience was in one swift email… And we were honeymooning.

Matt Friedman was really amazing to us from our first call to the last song. We still have people telling us how great the band was. As I told Matt, if there is anything I can do or say so that you or anyone else knows how perfect the band was, is be glad to do so.

Other than that, thank you so much and again – Matt and his band were the best!


Hello all, 

Just wanted to thank you for all your help setting up our wedding music yesterday at Rock Island– it was incredible! Harry Stuart Orchestra is amazing! They rocked the house all night and every time we turned, every person we saw complimented the band. We so appreciate your help in making the night just perfect. 


Alyssa and John


    We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Escapade, for the fantastic job they did at our wedding Saturday night at the Rockleigh. They kept the music going all night, and the dance floor was packed! The compliments continue to roll in about how fabulous the band sounded. Please pass our appreciation on to the band!
Thanks again,
Corey and Brittany
What can we say? Matthew Friedman and the uptown sounds just rocked it. First class all the way. Incredible to deal with and phenomenal performers. Had the crowd buzzing all night. We will highly recommend your Name and Entertainment as it was so highly recommended to us. We will post on every wedding website as soon we return from Maui!
Thanks again,
Ryan and Allie
Hey Scott,
 We had an amazing time as did our guests! Believe me when I tell you, you guys exceeded all expectations. Carley and I received a ton of compliments about you guys throughout the night…especially since the dance floor was never empty! Third eye blind entrance was also a hit!

Hi Scott,
Giulian and I just landed in Hawaii! We had an unbelievable time at our wedding! The music, the bands, and Nick the mc we’re phenomenal. Everyone is still telling me how much fun they had.
Thank you so much for everything. It was wonderful!

What a show you guys put on! We cannot thank you enough for everything.  We heard so many compliments from guests – young and old- who loved the song selection and your band’s performance.  We are happy to write a review or be a reference if anyone has any questions!

Thank you and please pass along this note to your band members.

All the best,

Leigh and Matt
Hi Scott.
Everything went beautifully! The band, Escapade, exceeded our expectations! They were absolutely awesome! Everyone , both young and old, had a tremendous time. The band kept people happy and dancing!
In fact, several people asked for their card for different occasions coming up.
Thank you so much for all your help and guidance in the selection of the band. It truly made our wedding so memorable!

Hi Scott

We had an amazing time and everyone loved Escapade. I have been told by multiple they have not been to a wedding where people danced so much !

Marisa & Mike

Happy New Year !

Everything was amazing ! Everyone was up and dancing the whole night and we got so many compliments on the band. Escapade was so much fun and everyone had a blast!

Thank you so much for everything !


Marissa & Phillip

Good Morning ( at least it is where we are),

We had a blast! Thank you so much ! everyone had such wonderful things to say about Escapade.

ESCAPADE MADE OUR WEDDING!! We hired Criag Scott Entertainment for our wedding 5/19/18 at the Ryland Inn Grand Ballroom. We could not be happier with Escapade (8 pieces) as well as the string duo who played the ceremony and the keyboard/bass at the cocktail hour. The string duo played All of Me while the bride walked down the aisle and knocked it out of the park! Craig Scott entertainment is a one stop shop when it comes to planning a wedding and its musical production!!! Ken and the band were amazing and they could play all of our music and ran the reception exactly the way we wanted it. (Introduction Marry You – Bruno Mars, First dance You & I – John Legend, Ken was amazing and the band nailed it all) They are true professionals and are much more than a “wedding band”. They played Top 40, disco and Motown classics, Rascal Flatts and all across the musical spectrum. After the wedding all we heard was… “who was the band, where did you find them, they were incredible”. Ken and the band had the whole party dancing from start to finish and slowed it down at dinner with classics from Frank Sinatra and others. If you’re planning a wedding and looking for a great band that is well priced look no further than Craig Scott Entertainment especially ESCAPADE!!! Thanks Ken and the band for making our wedding memorable.

Courtney & Peter

We had the band Escapade at our wedding who also played at our friend’s wedding a couple years ago. Our family and friends couldn’t stop talking about how great the band was! We had an 8 piece band including an added sax player. They also had guitarist play at our cocktail hour which was included. Craig Scott Entertainment was so easy dealing with all the planning before the big day and made going through the day of timeline and details a breeze. Would highly recommend for the price and value!
