About
Thank you for considering My Cousin Skinny for your important event. We bring energy, spontaneity and a great repertoire of songs to our live performances. We are seasoned musicians with nearly 20 years of professional experience playing clubs, festivals, corporate events, and weddings.

OUR STYLE

When it comes to your wedding, we can provide intimate acoustic ceremony music, contemporary hits, B-side gems, classic sing-a-longs and dance tunes. We don't take up much space, but can emulate a "full band" sound by incorporating percussion and guitar loops. We'll also do our best to learn several of your special song requests.

OUR EXPERIENCE

We have played hundreds of gigs up and down the East Coast at venues of all sizes. One of our accolades was winning Relix Music Magazine's “Jam Off” competition and having our original song “Send Your Blue Skies” pressed onto a compilation CD that distributed over 100,000 copies nationally.

Choosing the right musicians is important...and choosing My Cousin Skinny means one less thing to worry about on the day of your event.

Guests at corporate events seem to appreciate our upbeat mix of both popular and more eclectic song choices. We often have people come ask us for the name of a song or artist from a selection that they particularly enjoyed. We always cater our selections to the vision and preference of our clients, so you can rest assured that we'll do our best to create a musical experience that all of your guests will enjoy.

QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER

Here are some questions to think about before hiring us to perform at your wedding or special event:

1) Are you looking for performers that are capable of playing traditional instrumental selections as well as a variety of cover songs from the '60s through modern era?

2) Are you seeking an act that can incorporate drum and guitar loops (more closely emulating a full band experience) if your guests are in the mood for dancing?

3) Is professional musical experience and the ability to learn special requests important to you?

MAKING AN INFORMED DECISION

We realize that there are many different choices that can be made including DJs, full bands, acoustic duos, or pre-recorded music. Sometimes people opt to hire one set of performers for the ceremony and a different act for the reception.

Our goal is to provide the complete package, which is why we have the flexibility to handle any part of the evening for which you need professional musicians.

When you make the choice to hire My Cousin Skinny here are some of the things to expect:

* A range of covers that will appeal to audiences of all ages.
* Professional sound system.
* Nearly 20 years of professional playing experience.
* Microphone for announcements (or we can MC at no extra charge).
* Our best attempt to learn special song requests.
* Free phone and email consultations.
* A pleasant and courteous attitude at all times.
* Top notch customer service.

Once you contact us, we will respond within 24 hours (usually much quicker), and we can begin discussing how we can help make your event a big success. Our booking fees will be clearly explained -- with no additional hidden fees for you to worry about.

Thank you for your interest and please contact us today to find out why My Cousin Skinny is quickly becoming one of the emerging favorite acts on GigMasters!

Loved working with Jeff, the band gave a great atmosphere to our Grand Opening and he didn't even complain about the freezing cold weather!
