The Knuckle Dusters performed for a wedding rehearsal dinner and were perfect for the setting. The setting was rural Loudon County Virginia at the Silverbrook Farm where the wedding was to take place the following day. The weather was iffy but all clear by the time the event began and the damp lush surroundings made the event even more beautiful. The trio played everything from Bluegrass to Irish melodies and sat inside the Arch where the wedding was to take place the following day. Great for photos and played until dark when the event concluded. They were very accomodating when the date had to be moved from May to August because of the Pandemic. Great group.

PRICING AND QUOTES: Many factors can affect our fee. The number of musicians hired, length of performance, traveling distance, sound equipment needs, and special accommodations all play a role. We try to be fair, normally charging a simple flat fee for all events which are in short driving distance (under 2 hours), and require a 1-3 hour performance slot... we are flexible with performance times as needed for events.
The songs and videos in our press kit are a small handful of samples... it's impossible to include them all. We know hundreds of tunes!!! Please visit our website for complete listings by genre and style.
