Scott has had five comedy releases over the past few years including “Comedy at Warped Speed” a live video performance which earned him a seal of approval award by the Dove Foundation for family entertainment.  Comedian Steve Allen was one of the founding board members.

“Mary,  I just wanted to let you know that everything was PERFECT!  Amy said that the best thing about the wedding was the surprise Choir – “her dream” she said.  Every member was amazing and it was everything that we hoped for.   The crowd even stayed to hear them sing and clapped after and it was nothing short of amazing!  Please thank the members again for us and once I have some video and the pictures I will send them your way!” ~ Best, Carrie P.
 
“My wife and I hired Fifth Avenue Entertainment to play at our wedding and we were blown away, as were all of our guests. The gospel singers and 4 piece band we had play during the ceremony and cocktail hour knocked it out of the park with their cohesiveness as a group and their obvious passion for the music. Working with George to arrange the logistics regarding the set list and wedding timeline was smooth sailing. I am very particular and detail-oriented when it comes to music and he was understanding, accommodating and reassuring. He delivered on his promise to provide me with music professionals who would make our wedding dream a reality. Our happy-to-be-dancing guests raved about the music and the singers. I HIGHLY recommend Fifth Avenue Entertainment to anyone looking to make their event pop with style, fun and unforgettable sounds!” ~ Alex
 
“I work on a nationally broadcast sitcom and we needed a gospel choir to perform in an episode. We were referred to Fifth Avenue by one of writers who had used the choir in her wedding this year. She loved them and thought they’d be perfect for the show. They not only provided us an amazing choral performance, they looked great and were also very funny when called upon to be.
George was very easy to work with and gave us confidence that everything would come together without a hitch. We ended up working with the group over 3 days and we loved every minute.
I hope they get written into another episode soon!
