Quiet Is The New Loud

Jazz Band from Charlotte, NC - Will travel up to 500 miles

$325 - $975 per event
Innovative 8-string guitarist Brad Bailey performs Jazz, Pop, and Blues hits from Stevie Wonder to Sinatra and Ed Sheeran to Eric Clapton in a gentle but feel-good rhythmic style.

Brad can perform solo or in any ensemble size from duo to trio and beyond, as well as with vocals or instrumental only.

The unique 8-string guitar Brad plays creates a full, warm, and rhythmic sound no other solo performer can provide. Clients consistently describe his sound and vibe as being "smooth" and "not too loud to talk over."

One of Charlotte, NC's most prolific and in-demand musicians, Brad has performed at over 1000 events in the greater Charlotte area. A few examples of his clients include:

National events for MetLife, eTrade Financial, SunTrust, High Point Furniture Market, and ACC Night Of Legends;

local business such as Carolina Vision Group, Kolter Homes, Anthropologie, AVA Gallery;
City events with Charlotte Center City Partners, Foundations For The Carolinas, Matthews Town Hall Christmas Tree Lighting, Bearden Park,
Festivals including Festival In The Park, Matthews Alive, Cornelius Jazz Festival, Kannapolis Jazz Festival,

at regional attractions Carowinds, Discovery Place, NASCAR Hall of Fame, Biltmore House, and The Grove Park Inn,

at high-end hotels and Country Clubs including The Westin, Marriot, Sheraton, The Ivey, Myers Park, River Run, Quail Hollow, Carmel, Rock Barn, Tega Cay Golf Club, The Club At Longview, and Charlotte Country Club,

as well as oyster roasts, Kentucky Derby parties, family holiday get-togethers, and birthday parties in homes throughout NC and SC.

“I love how music can magically create the unspoken tone of an event. I enjoy contributing to the atmosphere my clients want their guests to feel.” — Brad Bailey

Outside of his corporate music work, Brad has also toured with 5-time Grammy-winning Jazz artist Victor Wooten and recorded with international K-pop star Kim Jaejoong and hip-hop legend Dr. Dre.

“Brad was the perfect addition to our event. We added the drummer option and it rounded out the sound beautifully. They played inside during dinner and the sound was just right - the volume was perfect and the speaker he uses really distributes the sound, so the people sitting closest to the band could still talk comfortably. He was professional and responsive. We will use Brad again.”
Kristen (Event Coordinator, The Independence Fund, Charlotte, NC)

“Dressler's Restaurants have had the pleasure of working with Brad Bailey for three years. Brad is an incredibly talented musician who we have relied upon more than any other act. He seems to have other talented musicians gravitate towards him as well which has led to some really impressive trios. The Metlive Stage at the Metropolitan Complex is a large space that caters to a varied group of people. Brad has always read the crowd well and received nothing but praise from our patrons. Brad is a consummate professional and we would be happy to provide any recommendation needed.”
Tim (General Manager, Dressler's Restaurant, Charlotte, NC)

"Brad Bailey was the perfect addition to Charlotte magazine's annual Top Doctors party. He was very professional and played right up to the end even after everyone was gone and we were packing up. We will def use him again."
Casey (Director of Marketing and Audience Development, Morris.com)

“Brad recently played at our Holiday Open House. He is an amazingly talented musician. His guitar music was perfect for setting the mood for an enjoyable event.“
Lisa (Personal Stylist, Anthropologie South Park Mall)

Brad and his partner were unbelievable. They truly carried the event and were so good. I can't tell you how many people complimented them and now even our wedding coordinator is putting them on her preferred list. Thank you so much for everything.”
Tony (Groom, Chesapeake Bay, MD)

“The best gift my wife received for her birthday was Brad playing for her surprise party. Both his music and personality made the evening special.”
Bud (Davidson, NC)

"Brad, we cannot thank you enough for providing the music during cocktail hour before the rehearsal dinner at Charlotte Country Club. You are so extremely talented, and who knew that anyone could get that amazing sound from a banjo? Your song selection was fabulous, and please accept our heartfelt thanks for helping to make the event even more special."
Mary (Mother of the groom, Charlotte, NC)
