We hired Grits and Soul to play as guests arrived for our daughter's wedding, and during the cocktail hour after the ceremony. Most of our guests traveled from outside of Kentucky and we were looking for a good way to introduce them to the Bluegrass. What better way than with a bluegrass band? G&S was the perfect start to the event. Their musicianship is outstanding. Anna handles the business for the duo and she was always prompt, cheerful and clear in her communications. My only regret is that (as father-of-the-bride) I missed most of their playing because I was elsewhere (photographs) while G&S was entertaining our guests. Hire them! You will be very pleased.
Grits & Soul have not only performed at regional festivals throughout the Southeast and Europe, but also weddings, private parties, and corporate events of all shapes and sizes. These include "hush hush" celebrity parties, as well as events and gigs at the Biltmore Estate, Grove Park Inn, The Alluvian, and Blackberry Farms. In August 2017, Grits & Soul appeared on an episode of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, which featured the Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail in Kentucky.
Please visit the Grits & Soul website for videos and more.
Their repertoire includes original and cover tunes, traditional ceremony favorites, bluegrass standards and old-time instrumentals, classic country, jazz and swing, and some Delta blues. They approach every gig as an opportunity to reflect the people behind it, and want you to have a unique and fun event that stands out just like you do!
