Craig Scott Entertainment?

I'm in the process of booking a band and/or DJ along with ceremony and cocktail hour musicians.  I've seen great reviews for Craig Scott Entertainment and I know some of you are using/have used them.

What bands, DJs, and musicians did you guys book?  I think they said that they also have live musician/DJ mixes, which we may go for.  But I figure I should get names of who everyone liked from their company.

    Our band is Phase One from Craig Scott, we aren't using them for our ceremony since we are getting married in a church.  I can't say enough good things about Scott Hornek, the owner of the company.  I met him at an event without knowing who he was at first, and he was so friendly.  We were strongly considering another well known nyc company as well, but they felt much more like a corporation, and I love that Craig Scott is so much more personable.  He has actually emailed me to check in and see how the rest of wedding planning is going...and he isn't even our contact person, our band leader Rich is.  
    I have heard great things about their DJs as well.

    Good luck!

    We used the Projekt. They were amazing and the dance floor was packed all night. Their piano player played for cocktail hour for us (all I wanted was piano playing Broadway tunes and standards)

    We are using Phase One and added an extra singer.  We also booked acoustic guitar for ceremony and piano for cocktail hour.  HTH!

    I have heard many good things about them and the coordinator at my venue, who is very honest, also said they are great. We are using Veronica Martell Entertainment out of NYC. We also used them for my sisters wedding and they were fantastic

    We are using Craig Scott - pianist for the cocktail hour and the band (I am blanking right now if it's Phase One or Craig Scott Orchestra) for the reception...have heard tons of great reviews and they've been great to work with so far!

    I didn't go with Craig Scott Entertainment because they don't let you see actual footage of their bands-- you sit in their office watching a photo montage over music that is allegedly the band playing. 
    I personally wouldn't book any of their bands without having seen them in person, or having received a solid recommendation from someone else who had them perform at their event.

    Thanks everyone for the feedback.  I just made an appt for next week.  He actually said he'd pull footage of the bands, so hopefully he doesn't mean the photo montage.

    Danes - I was thinking of having a violinist for the ceremony, so I'll see if that guy's available.  Thanks!

    JoBell, they also lead me to believe I was seeing footage of the band when I scheduled the meeting.  You might want to ask them to specify exactly what you're traveling to the office for-- if it's a meeting like mine, where Scott stumbles around his Apple TV showing you pictures of band members floating around the screen with the Black Eyed Peas songs playing in the background, you might want to skip it!

    We're actually meeting with Christian, not Scott.  Since we'd be booking more musicians than the band or DJ, if he shows us the montage then we'll talk to him about actually seeing them in person.

    Thanks for the warning, though!

    I just recently booked Craig Scott Orchestra for our July 2013 wedding. They do have great reviews and we really liked Scott, however I am also a little nervous being that we also didn't see actual footage and they did not accommodate our request to see the band live.

    How did everyone like them that ended up booking and had their weddings? Any feedback is appreciated! :)

    Hi TaraK! Were you happy with Craig Scott? We booked them but haven't had the opportunity to see them live. We booked the Craig Scott Orchestra. Thanks! :)
