About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Switchgrass is a bluegrass band at heart, yet as our name implies, we explore a wide range of material, from traditional fiddle tunes to jazz standards, classic rock to folk and blues... from the old to the new... an unpredictable, tasty blend of instrumental and vocal tunes, all played with the drive and finesse of a progressive string band. Collectively, our group members have many (many) years of performance experience, and really know how to put on an engaging, entertaining, and professional show, that's appropriate for all ages. We have exceptional P.A. (sound reenforcement) gear, and can accommodate small, medium, or large venues. We don't play too loud, or too soft; we play just right! We are very professional; prompt; responsive; adaptive; a bunch of nice guys too! For a nominal fee, we will learn and perform "special requests," for that special person or moment, like the Father-Daughter dance, your favorite song, etc...

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on September 27, 2014From Hillsboro, OR

Everyone including myself was so pleased with Switchgrass, they were friendly, accommodating, and a perfect fit for our event! My dad loves bluegrass and he was so happy with their performance, they brought an important piece of the South to our event. Strongly recommend! Thank you Switchgrass!

WeddingReviewed on July 28, 2012From Saint Paul, OR

Switchgrass provided exactly what we wanted for our event. They were all friendly and professional. They gave themselves plenty of time to set up and be ready, and they had no problem providing for our special requests. I am still getting compliments on their performance from our guests.
