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!

    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.

    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.
