An exciting yet elegant music experience


Fronted by the vocal power trio of former American Idol star Maddie Assel, DC radio personality Emily Sklar, and the award-winning, multi-instrument virtuoso John Schreiner, Night Sage is an unforgettable performance experience. The group’s catalogue focuses on energetic top 40 selections and perfectly delivered iconic hits stretching back as far the 1960’s. Since their launch in early 2019, Night Sage has garnered ecstatic reviews from private clients and public audiences alike, because simply put, they offer a level of quality beyond all expectation. Elegant, effervescent, and exhilarating: Night Sage.
