These guys were absolutely the Coolest part of our event. It wouldnt have been the same without them! They are amazing. They are kind, talented, accommodating and just a good fun group. They even came to the site of the wedding way up in the mountains (on their own time and accord!) a couple weeks prior to the day-of to get a look around in order to plan and know what to expect for themselves. Do yourself a favor and book these guys. We loved them!

The Bluegrass Sound Band played at my wedding in Tennessee in May 2017. Their music is wonderful, but in addition to that, they were extremely helpful. For example, they let us use their sound equipment for our speeches, they offered us a generator for use during the ceremony, and best of all, their fiddler even played a song during the ceremony, which made it just that much more beautiful. They asked us for song requests and made sure to play exactly what we were interested in. Finally, they were also very communicative in the months leading up to the wedding, with plenty of calls and emails just to make sure that everything was arranged. It was all wonderful!

The Bluegrass Sound Band was marvelous. They played a set for a formal dinner as a part of our annual conference. The manager Jim communicated with us well in advance of the date to coordinate and ensure their musical performance would meet our expectations. They certainly did. It was fun and bluegrass was a nice change of pace for our dinner attendees. We strongly recommend the Bluegrass Sound Band! Public Health Service Commissioned Officers Foundation

Bluegrass Sound Band really gave my family and I an experience that will be remembered forever. I hosted this event for my mom, grandma, aunts, and uncles to try and give them all what they gave me as a kid. I could not have asked for a better turnout or a better band for this. With the help of this band, I was able to bring my family in one place again and every single one of them had tears in their eyes and each said "I will never ever forget what you have just done for us". Thank you Bluegrass Sound Band!

The Bluegrass Sound Band added so much to our event and were easy to work with. They arrived in plenty of time to set-up and were very friendly and flexible. Added a ton to our event and would definitely use them again if the opportunity presented itself.
