About
The Banner Days is a soulful folk duo consisting of Beth Whitney and Bradford Loomis. When they are not touring, they play weddings, parties, corporate events etc. They can play as a duo or with a band, in intimate settings or large capacity functions. From intimate House Shows to large festivals with thousands of people, from baby showers, to prisons, Bradford and Beth have likely played it.

When artists Beth Whitney and Bradford Loomis began writing together, they had no idea their casual co-writing experiment would blossom into the much anticipated album The Banner Days (releasing August 23rd on MTS Records). That first night, they wrote My Beloved in two hours. And after a few more writing sessions, it was clear to them both, that these songs merited a bold decision.

From the first time they played together, along with Beth's husband/collaborator Aaron Fishburn, the chemistry has been powerful. The combination of Beth's delicate, pure, and melodious voice and Bradford's soulful, growling tone makes for a beautifully heart wrenching harmonious blend.

Their dramatic crescendos, minimalist intensity, through intricate harmonies have elicited comparisons to The Civil Wars, the Swell Season, and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss' Raising Sand.

With equal parts sweetly anthemic, pop tinged folk, provided by Beth, and Bradford's gritty, passionate Americana Roots sound, The Banner Days is an intrepid step for both artists.

Fantastic duo, great communication up front, played perfect songs, including several they learned just for us, and were accommodating throughout. Our wedding attendees also gave unanimously positive reviews and everyone was very impressed. Top notch musicians and people. Highly recommended!

We were very very pleased with the Banner Days at our wedding! I had meant to make contact with them 2-3 months before the wedding to let them know our song requests - of course I didn't get around to it until the week before! But I chatted with Beth and she was very nice and they were extremely accommodating to our last minute requests. Our crowd was a little rowdy (even rowdier than I expected them to be!) and the band was super professional and kept the party going. They provided the perfect atmosphere, from dinner through the dancing portion of the evening. We couldn't have asked for better! Thank you so much!

We couldn't be happier with our band choice for our summer wedding! Bradford was easy to communicate with from the start. They honored our song requests and even learned a song that my husband wanted. Bradford and Beth sounded amazing and had a fun presence on stage! Our guests were equally impressed! I had so many people come ask me about them at the wedding, and I still have people talking to me about them months later! I definitely recommend hiring The Banner Days for any type of party. I will hire them again for my next big event!! Thank you, Bradford and Beth. You made our day truly amazing!

It was a pleasure to meet these nice and talented people. Easy and flexible to work with, competent in finding the venue and getting themselves set up in a timely way, and then brought lovely music to the event. Thanks!

The band was amazing overall. They sounded beautiful and were more than accommodating to our requests. It was slightly difficult getting a response from them in the weeks leading up to the event via email due to it being peak wedding season in July, but that's the only half point we're taking away. Every one of our guests and even some of our vendors commented on how much they loved the band as well. Highly recommended for your wedding!

The Banner Days played at our wedding, providing music for both the ceremony and the reception, and they were one of the highlights of the day! All of our guests raved about them and kept asking where/how we found them. They were super easy to work with, provided services above and beyond what we expected, and most importantly, they sounded great! Thank you so much, Bradford, Beth, and Aaron!
