About
“Outstanding...” “They Sound Fantastic...” “Musically Superb... Fantastic Performers”
“Blackbird did a fantastic job keeping our wedding guests entertained and dancing”
Blackbird, one of Portland's most popular Dance and Party bands, works hard to keep their clients giving those kinds of reviews!
Specializing in Weddings, they are also very popular for birthday parties, company parties, and festivals. Blackbird was proud to be chosen to be the closing act for the 2012 Olympic Trials in Eugene!

“They nailed everything from John Lennon to Elton John to Cream to Earth Wind and Fire and much more” “a great deal of variety. Their vocals were spot on” “a deep repertoire of classic rock...”
Specializing in favorites from the past, they have something for everybody. Also, they are currently expanding their song list with more 80's, more R and B, and even a few from this decade.

“ Fun To Work With...” “a delight to work with...” “extremely accommodating...”
“We Will Be Re-Booking Them...”
Whether it is helping a bride and groom find a perfect “first song”, cheerfully working with the event coordinator, or visiting the venue ahead of time if needed to make sure that everything runs smoothly, Blackbird considers friendly service to their clients a very important part of their “performance”.


Of course, Blackbird is also well known for its ability to deliver a few sets of just Beatles, if requested. If requested, Blackbird can capture the Beatles through their various phases, from She Loves You and Twist and Shout to Lucy in the Sky and Don't Let me Down. Having Blackbird at your event will ensure that you enjoy all the sounds that made the Beatles one of the greatest influences on modern music. Great for dancing or just listening, let Blackbird treat you and your guests to a memorable and unique experience that is sure to make your event stand out.
Based in the Portland, Oregon area (Beaverton, Hillsboro), Blackbird is available to play at your wedding or corporate party with over 3 hours of live Beatles music; or a mix of Beatles and other classic rock covers, dinner music or great dancing songs. So whether you want pure Beatles or a mix of classic rock songs, Blackbird is sure to deliver a great live performance.

Blackbird arrives with a fanastic soundsystem and a paid sound engineer to run it. They also come with a complete lighting system, including a laser dance floor system (with fog machine, when requested) that really livens the atmosphere!

Blackbird can tailor their performance to perfectly match your event, and can also provide prerecorded music for when they are not performing.

Please check out Blackbirds audio clips. They will be updated soon to better reflect their current songlist.

This was the first time I had rented a band for a party. It was my husband’s 60th. From start to finish they were great. I mostly talked to Steve Redig the manager and he was very nice. They came and set up and were very flexible with the space we had chosen for them to play. It was pouring down rain which was unexpected. I had canopies for rain or shine. They sounded so good and I was able to pick the songs from their list. We danced the entire time. I received a lot of comments on their talent and would not hesitate to hire them again. They were very professional and I was very impressed. They were friendly and caring. You would not go wrong hiring this band.

We were thrilled with Blackbird! They were musically superb, very well rehearsed, and fantastic performers. Blackbird was especially accommodating with our special requests for our convention group gig, and exceeded our expectations. Band leader, Steve was a delight to work with every step of the way. I give Blackbird my highest recommendation, they ROCK!

I hired Blackbird for a corporate networking function. They are a very talented band! I received a lot of compliments and they were relatively easy to work with, not to mention that they were very reasonably priced. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a classic rock/Beatles cover band.

The band was great! I booked them for my wedding in September and they were a hit! Given the stressful nature of weddings in general, booking Blackbird was so easy. Additionally, in the time leading up to the wedding, the members were very responsive to my all my inquiries and special requests. I could not have been happier with performance, as well! Definitely recommend!
