Horizons & The Horns was the perfect band for our recent wedding in Newport. We heard them play at our Maid of Honor's wedding 2 years ago and knew that we needed to secure them for our own wedding. The whole group is so fun and knows how to get the crowd out of their seats... Read More and dancing. They easily accommodated our song list and we let them kind of run with it from there. Pretty sure our bridesmaids got a hold of tambourines and joined the band for a couple songs. We also had the Kelly and Ray play for the ceremony. Can't wait to relive their performance in our video! On the plus side, they were very reasonable compared to our bands that we talked to (especially in the Newport, RI area). Would HIGHLY recommend using this band. They made our wedding day perfect and all our guests loved them. The saddest part was when they were done!

“Your band was amazing!” is one of the most frequent comments I have heard from friends and family since our wedding on July 1, 2017. And I have to agree – we were thrilled with Horizon & the Horns! We went with the full 7-piece band and they were all awesome! Amazing variety of... Read More music (check out a sampling from their song list on their website - http://www.horizonandthehorns.com/song-list.html), they can do all the classics, current pop music, swing, jazz, rock. Since the wedding, two separate friends who are planning their own weddings in different states have said they are now considering a band instead of a DJ – if they can find someone like Horizon! With a little notice, they will also learn songs – our first dance was a slowed down version of Katy Perry’s Firework (sentimental reasons ha) and they were able to do that arrangement no problem. The dance floor was packed all night and the band also appears to be having a great time with you! Beyond the music, working with Ray Novack is the best! He’s very responsive and clearly knows what he’s doing when it comes to weddings – he thinks of every detail, including many that I would have missed myself! The day-of his daughter Kelly, vocalist and more, does an awesome job of “MC-ing” the reception – every name pronounced perfectly and aware of everything going on. I realized mid-way through the dance party that I wanted a photo on the dance floor of all my college friends (husband and I are college sweethearts) – I went up to Ray, while he was on keyboard, and asked if he could work that in. He got the message to Kelly, she announced the photo, the group gathered and then we were back to dancing – it was all so seamless! Awesome music, awesome energy – thank you Horizon & the Horns! Update: A friend at the wedding just booked Horizon & the Horns for her own wedding!
