Jes and the Blackberry Bushes were outstanding! Definitely the highlight of our party and our guests still rave about how talented and fun they were. Our event was an extra wedding reception at our lake house in Maine and they were perfect. Professional from the beginning to the end, incredible stage presence with a flawless performance, we couldn’t have been more pleased.
We know how important your wedding day is to you, and we know how hard it is to control all the pieces. You need a professional who cares about the soul of your event in charge of music. Our performance has been honed by 10 years of full time touring, and we know how to move the spirit in a crowd. We were selected "Best of 2017" by GigMasters for our work with New England and Upstate NY weddings.
We want every wedding we play to be an event that reflects the couple's sense of beauty and that guests remember because they felt close to one another. As a string band we have a wide spectrum of sounds and moods that we can create, from delicate and graceful to all out rowdy and boisterous. We can take guests all the way from arrival to dance party, or fill a specific chapter of the day.
We are a perfect fit for outdoor, barn, rustic chic, bohemian, and festival style weddings. We can provide ceremony, cocktail hour, square dancing, and reception music. We are not a "cover band" though we will most certainly play some covers that your guests will know, as well as a handful of special requests in our style. We will bring art, soul, elegance and hootenanny to your day, and our aim will be to make your guests feel the love you have for them, feel connected to each other, and be delighted and inspired by the spirit of your event.
