For over 15 years, Nightsong has dazzled audiences with its gifted vocalists and world class musicians, earning the reputation of being one of the top event bands in the business. The energy and chemistry generated in working together shines through to the delight of the many clients for whom the band performs each year, and the band continues receiving amazing reviews!

The source of the band’s inspiration and success is the band leader, Bennett Scher. Bennett got his start in New York as a well-known published singer/songwriter and live/studio session musician performing with notable musicians from the bands of Billy Joel, Peter Frampton, Joe Cocker, David Bowie, Whitney Houston, The Doobie Brothers, Bette Midler, Scandal and smooth jazz artist Spyro Gyra. Bennett has also performed as a featured player on stage with the legendary John Waite and popular recording group, Poco.

The best words about the band have been spoken by clients:

“They exceeded our expectations…”
“All we kept hearing from everyone the whole night is, this band is great!
“Everyone has been contacting us asking the name of the band …”
“We could have closed our eyes and felt that the original artists were there!”
“They … were AMAZING.”
“Their music, fabulous voices, and high energy, was responsible for helping us throw such a great party”
“People were asking where we found such an “awesome” band…”

Nightsong’s talented musicians and singers are equally accomplished. In addition to wowing audiences at numerous private events throughout the years, they have all spent time performing/touring around the globe, on the stage, screen, and in the recording studio. The members of this world-class group have collectively shared the stage such renowned artists as Patti Labelle, Jennifer Holliday, REM, The B-52’s, smooth jazz artists Peter White and Slim Man, Nils Lofgren, Debbie Allen, James Ingram, The Romantics, Kelly Price, Dru Hill, Roberta Flack, Chico DeBarge, Aaliyah, John Legend, and R.Kelly to name a few! The list of talents and accomplishments with this band goes on and on.

Nightsong performs as 9 piece band consisting of guitar, keyboards, bass, drums, 3 lead vocalists (2 females and one male) and 2 horns, and is also available for smaller events in 7 piece mode (without horns), providing variety music ranging from current hits of today to yesterday’s classics.

Talent, energy, personality and professionalism with an awesome commitment to the sound of the music is the reason Nightsong continues to be one of the area’s most popular variety bands.

  1. Carolyn - WeddingWire Review

    The minute I heard Nightsong at a wedding in the fall of 2014, I knew that I had to have them for my wedding in Jan. 2016. There was absolutely no question that they would be the band my husband and I would select – to the point that we would have changed our wedding date if they were not available! They are, hands down, the best band that I’ve ever seen at an event! My husband and I both work in the event’s industry and have been to over 200 weddings/special events combined over the last 5 years and there is no band/entertainment like Nightsong! They are extremely professional, talented, personable and energetic! They MAKE the event and your guests will be blown away by their performance, energy and interaction with everyone on the dance floor. Our guests are still talking about them, weeks later – “Where can we see them again?” “Let’s host an event just so Nightsong can come and perform!” “WHERE did you FIND them?!” “They are the best band I’ve ever seen!!” “Some of the songs they sing sound better than the actual artist singing them!”. Working with Nightsong was the best decision we made for our wedding celebration. Thank you all for making our wedding so special, so much fun and so memorable!!

    We had Nightsong perform at our wedding reception and they were the absolute best! We had almost every guest on the dance floor and I can’t tell you how many people have told me since the wedding how amazing the band was. They set the tone for the night and helped make it unforgettable. I would tell anyone that wants to dance the night away that this is the band for you – they were fun, energetic and all around fantastic musicians!

  3. WeddingWire Review

    Nightsong was fantastic. So many guests came up to say, “great band!” I knew that a memorable wedding reception party is all about the band. I was hopeful but a little anxious, because I had only seen and heard Nightsong on video. All expectations were exceeded. Everyone was drawn immediately to the dance floor when you started, and it continued all night long. Several guests came up afterwards and said it was the best wedding reception party ever. The music was so infectious the wait staff was dancing!

    I also appreciate how you took the time days before the wedding to talk and make sure you had everything ready in the program as we wanted it, which is a sign of your professionalism. I can’t recommend Nightsong highly enough.

  4. The entertainment at any event often sets the tone. Bennett Scher and Nightsongs talented performers were at our daughter’s wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC. From the first arrangement until the finale the band and singers completed our evenings experience. In short, if you’re looking for a band with female vocals, talent and energy, these guys are somebody that you simple can’t ignore.

  6. Thanks Nightsong from Claire

    Hi Bennett,

    Thank you so much for the beautiful and touching song page! Our biggest highlight of the entire weekend is most definitely the band. After planning for so long and making all the little decisions I can surely say the best decision was choosing Nightsong! Speaking from a bride’s perspective, you made me feel at ease and I could trust you knew exactly what you were doing!

    You had everyone on the dance floor until the very end and even surprised us with an encore. All of our wedding guests raved about you all and could not stop talking about how much fun they had dancing. We will make up an excuse to have a big party just to use you again!

    Thanks for everything,

    Claire and Neofytos

    We can’t tell you how many text messages and comments we got that conveyed “Best Wedding Band Ever!”. NIGHTSONG absolutely crushed it– the dance floor was packed and full of energy! Their ability to read the crowd and play the appropriate songs was impressive. We very much appreciated the depth of NIGHTSONG’s song list and variety of music played throughout the night. If you’re looking for a top-notch band for your wedding or any other event, would HIGHLY recommend NIGHTSONG!

    NightSong is THE BEST band! Hiring them for your wedding should be a no brainer! We have used them for 4 family weddings (because there simply is no one better) and all of our friends/extended family members immediately ask for their contact info once they get engaged. We still haven’t stopped getting compliments about them — by far the best band in the DC area. Every single guest at our wedding was dancing to NightSong until the very end of the reception and has yet to stop raving about them :) If you want a fabulous, amazing, fun filled, unforgettable reception, you better have NightSong there!

    I would highly recommend booking the band Nightsong. Bennett, the Nightsong bandleader, followed up and even initiated conversations to find out about our specific timeline and the type of music we wanted. They could not have made it easier for me, as the mother of the bride. They were very professional and great to work with, available by email and phone. Nightsong was phenomenal! Once they started playing, the dancing never stopped. Our families and friends said Nightsong was the best band they have ever heard. Hands down, having Nightsong play at our daughter’s wedding was one of the best decisions we made. I can’t say enough about how amazing the the entire band, both singers and musicians, were. It made for an incredibly memorable evening .

  11. WeddingWire Review, July 23, 2016

    We got married 3 weeks ago in the DC area and NIGHTSONG played at our cocktail dance reception.
    Right from the start of planning our wedding music was a priority. So much so that we had the band booked before we knew the venue or even the approach to how we wanted to celebrate this time in our lives. We decided to have a small family ceremony with a seated dinner on Friday evening. Saturday night we held a cocktail dance party where NIGHTSONG preformed for a larger crowd at the same venue.

    Considering the celebration was split between two evenings, we were a little nervous about how the flow would work. The band started playing right as our guests began to arrive for cocktails and heavy appetizers. The dance party did not really take full swing until later in the evening; however, NIGHTSONG played a set during the early part of the cocktail party that really spoke to the elegant affair we always envisioned. As the night went on, NIGHTSONG kicked it into high gear and once again their talent exceeded our expectations. They did such an amazing job working off the energy of the crowd that a lot of our guests said they were so good that it felt like they were at a concert not a wedding reception! At the brunch the next day it was clear the band blew everyone away.

    Bennett was so professional. We emailed about a month out and had one phone call. We discussed our concerns with the flow considering our two-day event at the same venue. Not only did he assure everything was going to be perfect but he sparked a new level of excitement as we started nearing our wedding day. NIGHTSONG was the first vendor we booked and easily one of the best decisions we made during the planning process. We highly recommend this band! They really did an outstanding job across the board.

    NIGHTSONG made our wedding! They are the most talented and upbeat group of musicians, and everyone was on the dance floor all night long. If only the dance floor was bigger! I can’t even count how many times our friends mentioned how amazing they were. We would hire NIGHTSONG again in a heartbeat!

  13. WeddingWire Review

    Nightsong was amazing from start to finish. More than one person said, “every song sounded like the original”, which alone is a high compliment. To couple that with the stage presence of Bennett (bandleader/ lead guitarist), singers, and actually the entire band, the band’s gracious attitude toward the audience, and an energy that burst out of Nightsong’s instruments and voices directly into each person in the room, made it a most memorable evening.

    I can’t thank Nightsong enough for working with me on the rap. It felt like a Lennon & McCartney collaboration. Nightsong made our band of misfits come off much better than I could have imagined. How they took my cryptic notes and made magic out of that moment was truly amazing.

    Nightsong made the dance floor the place to be. My wife and I have thrown a lot of parties over the years with bands, this being our first wedding. From now on, Nightsong is “our” band.

    Our wedding planner also loved working with Vickie from Entertainment Exchange. We will not have another event, wedding or otherwise without Nightsong. Our first call will be to Entertainment Exchange, and Vickie to find a date that fits Nightsong’s calendar. Can’t wait for the next one!

  14. A Great time was had by all!!!!!

    Nightsong was outstanding. We cant count how many people commented on what a fun and talented band they were! They played great songs and had everyone out of their seats and dancing. We love their playlist and how engaged they are with the guests. The whole band seemed to be having a great time and their positive energy was felt by everyone in the room. They came highly recommended to us and we were just so impressed by their talent and enthusiasm. Also, I had attended a wedding where they played several years ago so when someone brought their name up I thought ” Of Course!! They had everyone dancing. Old and young!!”
    Thank you all so much for contributing so much joy to our special day and really making it a party!


  15. WeddingWire Review, September 3, 2016

    Nightsong was outstanding. We had so many family and friends asking about the band, they were so good. “Are they famous and we just haven’t heard of them yet?” “Nightsong played the tunes better than the original artists.” “That band (Nightsong) was so professional!” Nightsong made the dance time go too fast, they were so much fun and played so well.

  16. WeddingWire Review, September 4, 2016

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding the best night of our lives. I can’t even begin to tell you how many people told us that Nightsong was the best band they have ever heard, they wanted to know where we found you guys and the bands name. Everyone I have talked to since the wedding is still raving about you guys! The most important thing to Tom and I was the music. All we wanted was to be on the dance floor all night with our closest friends and family and that is exactly what we got. The statement, ” A band can make or break your wedding” could not be any more accurate and Nightsong made our night!! You exceeded every expectation we had and we really can’t thank you enough. If you are contemplating booking Nightsong, DO IT and you will never look back!!

  17. WeddingWire Review, Recently Married

    Nightsong provided the best music we could have possibly hoped for…continuous dancing during the entire reception, which was just what we asked of them!! Every band member could not have been nicer or more professional. They performed first dance songs perfectly, and struck the perfect balance of high-energy and dance music that we requested. There is not a better band out there!!!

  18. WeddingWire Review, September 17, 2016

    Choosing Nightsong to perform at our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. They were outstanding- our guests were completely blown away and so were we. I was worried our dance floor would be empty, but Nightsong’s energy and amazing talent kept it packed the ENTIRE night. They were so interactive and fun and we have not stopped hearing how much our guests loved them. Bennett was incredible to work with before the wedding; he was patient and responsive and made me feel so comfortable leaving our wedding entertainment in his capable and talented hands. He truly understands how important and emotional a wedding night is for a bride (and groom)! The band learned several songs for us and even helped us customize them to our first dances. I could gush about them for hours and would recommend them to anyone looking to throw a wedding or event to remember!!! Thank you Nightsong for making our wedding the best night of our lives and better than we could have imagined!! You are the best around!
