Robbie Scott & the New Deal Orchestra

I hired Robbie for a surprise engagement for my now, fiancée (she said Yes!) - Robbie and the band arrived very early and I immediately felt comfortable. Not only are they excellent musicians but they are just a great group of guys you can talk to during and after your event about past experiences and stories. We wanted that "Crooner" vibe and they delivered it with perfection playing all the standards. I even got to sing a few songs with them. Thank you again guys!

Robbie Scott and the New Deal Orchestra is a great choice for a wedding reception! They are excellent musicians and everyone at our reception had a blast dancing. Robbie Scott is good about keeping in touch leading up the wedding and is focused on ensuring that you and your guests have a great time. We hired him along with 7 other pieces to play swing and jazz and we couldn't have asked for a better band.

Robbie Scott and the New Deal Orchestra are fantastic! We had a 1920's themed wedding and they played music from the era for 4 hours! Guests were enchanted and amazed at the quality and we were wowed by the professionalism. We even had a dance instructor and he played along at her direction for the lesson. Our minister said the band was far and above, the best wedding band he had ever had in the church and all of our guests commented on how phenomenal they were. We recommend Robbie without reservation!

Robbie Scott and the New Deal Orchestra ROCKED our wedding. Robbie was extremely professional and responsive during the planning process. He put together a fantastic band. Last minute (3 days before the wedding) we asked for some background music for dinner and he put together a great jazz trio. He even had the band learn a song that we love. This band is priced lower than many of the other bands I interviewed and they are a FANTASTIC. We had 9 pieces and they played everything from Sinatra to Motown - we did not leave the dance floor for a minute. I cannot recommend this band more - book them, and you will be guaranteed to have an amazing party.

We absolutely love Robbie Scott and the New Deal Orchestra!!! If you're looking for classy, sophisticated, big band/jazz music, this is the band to check out. We've been to so many events/weddings where the music is so loud that you have to shout so someone can hear you. Robbie Scott's band plays nice and soft so that you can talk and enjoy your dinner, but you still have beautiful music to dance to. They added such an elegant touch to our wedding and were the perfect musical accompaniment. Robbie even asked us how the volume was during the night--very thoughtful. The musicians are top notch. We can't wait to have another party of some sort so that we can work with them again!!
