Very impressed!

I hire a lot of bands, but this one by far was terrific! They were polished, professional and most importantly our guests just loved them. Very rare our guests will applaud at an event - especially a networking event - but they loved them so much they applauded almost every song.

Craig Satchell Quintet...An Amazing Sound for your evening!

The Craig Satchell Jazz Quintet knows how to deliver the jazz! Our event which was the Art With Heart Gala at the Chester County Historical Society on Sept 21st had the pleasure of experiencing their expertise!
Jazz BLEW through the evening and our guests were mesmerized by their sound and their professional performance. These gentleman were truly that....gentleman who were very easy to work with and wonderful to follow up with at the end of the evening!
We all truly enjoyed their sound and would definately recommend them for any event with any demographic! We also would certainly rehire them again for another event! Thank you, Craig Satchell Quintet!!!!!!!

Fantastic experience

My husband, parents, and I were absolutely impressed with The Craig Satchell Jazz Ensemble and their performance during our wedding reception. Not only was the band very easy to work with, they are consummate musicians and professionals. We have received so many wonderful comments from our guests. The band also learned the music for our "special dances" (first dance, daddy/daughter, mother/son) and worked seamlessly with our DJ. The band is one of the reasons our wedding reception went off without a hitch. They helped to make it a night we'll always remember with great fondness.

Best cocktail hour band ever!

I hired a 5 man New Orleans style band to walk with my wedding party and guests from the church to the reception venue and then play in the garden during cocktail hour--they were fantastic!!! Everybody's favorite part of the day was the walk from church to the reception. Their music was so joyful and celebratory (and skillful), and it put everyone in a great mood to celebrate. It was absolutely perfect...everything I had hoped for. Thank you so much for all your help!

Perfect Pick for our Holiday Company Party!

The Craig Satchell Jazz Ensemble performed at our Company Holiday Party and were amazing! Everyone raved at how great the band was. They played a mix of songs from Oldies, Classic Favorites and Christmas Music! I would definitely reccommend them for your event, they did a wonderful job!! Craig was also very easy to work with leading up to the event, he answered emails almost immediately and answered all of my questions.

Jazz and Dixieland -- a great combination!

The Bristol Cultural and Historical Foundation booked the Craig Satchell Quartet for two half-hour performances at Historic Bristol Day, Oct. 20, 2012. We requested music from the early 1920s and the Quartet delivered a great combination of jazz and Dixieland from that period, to the delight of the audience.

Craig Satchell is a fantastic musician, very professional.

Craig has played at 2 fundraisers for Sunshine Arts and he can play anything. Our theme was 1920's and he and his little ensemble, we had limited space, set the mood perfectly. Always prompt and just creates a joyful room with his keyboard magic.
