Scott Savol, who gained fame while competing on the fourth season of American Idol, is the new lead male vocalist for “The Avenue,” an exclusive Cleveland Music Group band.
Savol, a Cleveland native, finished fifth behind winner Carrie Underwood in 2005.
Now The Avenue, which is fronted by three lead singers, is the only Cleveland area band featuring two American Idol finalists. Tiffany Marchak was a semi-finalist in season two, making the Hollywood round. She is a founding member of the band, which began at Jerry Bruno Productions in 2006.
While competing on American Idol, Savol’s raw talent and soulful voice won him enough votes each week to get him into the Top 5, as viewers continually responded favorably to his down-to-earth demeanor and spiritual attitude. Savol’s performing experience was limited to choir at Shaker Heights High School, festivals and church shows prior to endearing himself to American Idol’s worldwide audience.
“It’s great to be back home, doing what I love to do with an amazing band,” said Savol. “It’s such a blessing, not to mention that ‘The Avenue’ helps bring fun and joy to the happiest day of anybody’s life, their wedding day.”
New video will be produced soon. Until then, enjoy this throwback performance of Scott on American Idol! (You may need to click it twice to play.)

DJ Scott Jones was recently introduced to a unique, novelty wedding service called Storymix. With this budget-friendly process, wedding guests can get involved in making a fun, professionally edited wedding video from their own perspective.
Using up to 5 of Storymix’s HD handheld cameras or a complimentary iPhone app, anyone at the wedding, rehearsal or honeymoon can capture video clips throughout the day. You then return the cameras and/or upload the video and pick a theme. Storymix takes all that video and allows you to personalize it online, or they will edit it for you. The result isn’t a replacement for a videographer’s cinematic or documentary-style wedding video, but is an interactive and affordable way to get another perspective of an entire wedding experience.
Storymix doesn’t just cater to weddings, either. Their service is a great way to package, memorialize and present a corporate event, family vacation, Bar Mitzva, or life milestone.
Below is sample of the finished product for one of our recent brides. DJ Scott Jones can be spotted towards the end!
