Review by Brian W.

WeddingReviewed on October 3, 2023From Hallam, PA

The Bernstein Bard Trio (and the extra fiddle player) were exceptional. They were the first vendor we booked and they worked with us throughout our entire wedding planning process to make the event perfect. They went above and beyond to make sure that we had a set list that was just right. They are all incredibly talented musicians that helped our ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner all sound exactly how we wanted. I really hope my wife and I have an opportunity to see them perform live again!

The Bernstein Bard Trio:

Hey Brian and Jacci, I hope you two socially conscious love birds have a happy and healthy life together. From all of us: Thank you so much for inviting us in to your world of family and friends. We loved playing for you! Keep doing that all important social change work and if you're ever up this way near NY give me a shout and I'll let you know where we'll be! Peace and of course love, Steve

Corporate FunctionReviewed on September 21, 2022From Hunter, NY

Working with the Bernstein Bard Trio was one of the easiest parts of our corporate retreat. Steve reached out right away to talk details, was responsive, and nailed down what we were looking for in the performance. We had issues on our side finding the right place for them to play at our venue but they were patient, accommodating and we got it sorted (love the battery-powered amps). They were exactly the right beautiful background music we were looking for as our C-suite level guests sat by a bonfire, and we'd definitely hire them again. They would also be fantastic as a main event and not background music, which I wish we could have done given their skill!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on September 20, 2018From Westport, CT

Bernstein Bard Trio got it 100% perfect! They’re really nice fellows, too. BBT played at my father’s lovely daytime birthday party. I listened to over 50 bands, interviewed 5 or 6 before hiring BBT. Steve Bernstein is a positive careful listener, was nonplussed by my restrictions, and made it easy to quickly work out the details. They’re experienced, mature, intelligent, accommodating, and love what they do. They’re easy to work with and totally trustworthy. 20% of guests were hard of hearing, wanted to talk, so BBT kept volume low. For other 80%, they played upbeat happy tunes with strong rhythm and traditional bent (pre-R&B). Wonderful experience!

The Bernstein Bard Trio:

Hey Coneye, The pleasure was ours. What an amazing man your father is! You produced a beautiful tribute to a great man and it was an honor to be there. Thank you so much! All the best to you and your family, Steve
