Testimonials

Here’s what people are saying about the Scott Freeman Band and the Revival Horns…

I am a bride who planned an out of town wedding (on Cornell campus as we’re alumni, while living in Manhattan) with a groom who is very detail oriented and parents with specific tastes of their own. Scott and the group were absolutely wonderful in making sure all parties involved were happy, were incredibly friendly and pleasant to work with, and were truly the hit of the evening – the wedding would not have been the night it was without them. As a father, a working professional in the finance world AND a professional musician, Scott really has an understanding of all sides, and is such a well-rounded and talented artist of many trades – I really can’t say enough about him and the band. We as a couple, 24 years old, are big Sinatra fans, my parents doo wop, and the guests were everything in between. I got so many complements on the music, which absolutely made the night. The Scott Freeman band learned our first dance song since we wanted live music (come go with me), and stayed on top of the schedule to make sure it all went smoothly. I would book Scott et al again in a heartbeat!!!

Thank you for your performance at our First Annual Duck Derby fundraising event for The Humane Society! The Scott Freeman Band and The Revival Horns helped make the event a success and a fun day for all! It was great to hear the music throughout the event and see the crowd gather around the band dancing and smiling. The music selection was wonderful and you played music that everyone enjoyed. The SFB definitely added a great energy to our event. We would gladly recommend them for any type of event. We hope to have them join us again for our second annual Duck Derby!

THANK YOU for being such a huge part of Johanna and Greg’s wedding !! We had a wonderful time, and many of our guests commented on “the terrific band”! As I said to you that evening, – we had our fingers crossed that all would go well. We had never met you or heard you play in person. You came through 100% and we couldn’t have asked for more! Many thanks and all good wishes to you & that great band of yours!

The Scott Freeman Band and The Revival Horns looked, sounded and presented themselves like the true professionals they are. The wide variety of music for all tastes, provided a little something for everyone. Our guests were moving to the tunes, even during cocktail hour. We all loved the horns!

We want to thank Scott and the Scott Freeman Band for making our wedding evening an event that everyone there will always remember.  Ages ranged from 8 to 80, and everyone had a great time dancing and enjoying fantastic music.  Thank you for taking the time to pre-plan the event with us, and being flexible given the range of the audience.  Your band is truly professional and exceptional. We highly recommend the Scott Freeman Band & The Revival Horns to anyone planning an event that does not want to worry about the entertainment. Thank you for everything!

We hired the Scott Freeman Band & The Revival Horns for our Opening Night Gala at KNOW Theatre. The handling of the arrangements were a breeze and headache free. The band showed up early, setup on their own, and played a wide range of music that our patrons absolutely loved. People I’ve never seen move before, were out on the dance floor groovin’ to some great music.  We look forward to many future events with SFB and The revival Horns!!!

The Scott Freeman and The Revival Horns is the band to have for any event!  Their wonderful wide-ranging repertoire appeals to all ages. When they start playing, you just have to get up and dance!  They are excellent musicians and have a great stage presence. They certainly enhanced our event and helped make it one of our most successful.

The Scott Freeman Band was nothing at all like we had expected, it was so much more! As I watched people enjoy their meal listening to the sounds of the big band era, then see the large majority of people, young and old out on the dance floor having the time of their life, I knew we had made such a good choice when selecting these musicians. Even the videographer was dancing with his camera! The Scott Freeman Band is not only very musically talented, but they are great entertainers as well! Thanks to Scott and the band, my daughter and son in law, as well as all of the guests will have wedding memories to last a lifetime!

I just wanted to tell you how much we truly enjoyed having SFB at the our recent Sr. Dinner Dance. Everyone has been raving about the event, and has inquired about you for future events. Thank you so much again! You made our night so special. We will never forget it.

Thank you all so much for traveling such a distance to play at our wedding reception! We were so glad that you were able to share all if your great talents with our guests! Well done & thanks again for all your efforts in making our wedding such a special day!

Jonathan and I knew we were in for a wonderful night of entertainment for our wedding but were we blown away by how much fun the SFB was! Even before dinner was served, guests came by to ask us “can we go dance now?” Our guests were antsy to dance and were relcutant to leave the floor on the last song. My 86 year old grandmother was out on the floor half the night and “had a marvelous time!” Jonathan and I don’t even like to dance, and we couldn’t resist going back out for a few more songs! We were so touched that you learned our song (The Best Is Yet To Come) for our first dance. You also did an amazing job transitioning between emceeing and getting the party started. Your energy and genuine enthusiasm are palpable, contagious, and guaranteed to get even the most stoic person tapping their feet. Many guests commented on how much fun they had, and we owe it to you. Thank you for making it a night we’ll remember forever. We couldn’t imagine our wedding without the SFB!

SFB & The Revival Horns were absolutely terrific – musically, visually, and by the way you generate excitement for all ages to enjoy. What great energy you provided!!!  The only down side was that the evening had to end and that we couldn’t keep going til the crack of dawn. Kudos and loud huzzahs!! You’re guys are the best!!!

I can’t thank you enough for what you did for my boss’ parents 50th Anniversary Party.  We were in such a bind….lost our band 2 days before the event!!  But Scott Freeman totally came through for us.  He got on the phone/email and got in touch with everyone from the band and had them available to play for the party.  And my boss’ parents LOVED every minute of it! All the guests were just astounded at the wide variety of music you played. A little something for all musical tastes! Thanks again for going the extra yard and helping to assure that their special night would be one they’ll always remember!

SFB & The Revival Horns are great fun and have a lot of character. From the time they played their 1st note, people were up dancing and having a great time all night long! This is a band that can really liven up any event!

I just wanted to send you an email letting you know how thrilled we were with your band for our wedding reception a few weeks ago!  You guys were absolutely fantastic, and we could not have been happier with the music. The arrangement of “Your Song” was wonderful, and really made the first dance special, I hope that you’re able to use that arrangement for future weddings. The music was one of the most important things to us for the wedding, and you guys really made it happen. Thank you and the rest of the wonderful band so much for everything!

The Scott Freeman Band & The Revival Horns helped make the inaugural Chris Thater Memorial Music Festival a huge success. The group is very talented and energetic. Their music selection was outstanding. Their performance was tremendous. The Scott Freeman Band was certainly a crowd favorite and because of that we hope to feature them again next year at the Chris Thater Memorial Music Festival.

Scott Freeman & The Revival Horns is the perfect party band!  With a play list that spans four decades, they get all generations out on the dance floor.  Top notch musicians and a great stage presence, including costume changes to go with each era of music, make Scott Freeman & The Revival Horns the most exciting and original party band in our area today!

The Scott Freeman Band & The Revival Horns should be renamed “ Guaranteed Party in a Box!”- They get the audience up on their feet early and keep them dancing late into the evening. They not only play well, they play great music and are visibly enjoying themselves which just spreads the smiles around the room. I would gladly recommend them to any event planner in the region. Just make sure they stay available for our events! These are some cool cats!

Just wanted to thank you and the “Revival Horns” for the great performance you put on during our Julyfest Celebration closing concert. Not only did your band look good on stage, but your sound and choice of songs was spot on. If the people in the audience weren’t dancing, they were moving and grooving to the beat.. especially the horn section!! All of us who were here from the DBBA would highly recommend your Band to others! Looking forward to having SFB to be a part of other events in the future. Again, thank you and the band for helping make our Saturday a big success!

Thank you all for the great music and flair that you provided for our wedding celebration!  We had a great time and our guests did too, from the first note to the last.  You struck the perfect tone throughout and everyone, from the youngest dancers to the oldest great-grandmother, enjoyed themselves.  Daniela’s grandmother said weeks later that she was still reliving the music.  We really appreciated the fact that you shortened your breaks between sets in order to keep the energy flowing.  We are grateful that you were so easy to work with; your contribution was key and much appreciated by all! Thanks so much!
