About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Yeah it's official, we won!!! The Bernadettes win the Fairfield County Weekly Grand Band Slam in the Rock/Groove/Soul category... For over a decade, The Bernadettes have been providing memorable musical entertainment at a variety of events and functions including weddings, corporate events, private parties, and fundraisers. Rhythm & Blues, arguably America's finest and most well known export, is the music The Bernadettes specialize in performing. The very familiar toe-tapping sounds of Motown, the infectious dance grooves of Memphis soul shouters such as Wilson Pickett, the smooth, sophisticated Philly soul music of Earth, Wind & Fire, the hard driving funk-rock of Sly and the Family Stone, the soothing grooves of R&B crooners like Marvin Gaye and Bill Withers, and, of course, the unforgettable music of the king of soul, Mr. James Brown - this is the music The Bernadettes perform. Yes, they'll mix it up with a few modern contemporary dance hits here and there, a classic rock number, or an oldies favorite, but the emphasis is on the classic "old school" R&B music that American baby boomers have grown up with and folks of all ages have enjoyed dancing to for several decades. Make your event a memorable event, and have your wedding be the one that family and friends will talk about for years. The Bernadettes have gained a peerless reputation in New England and the greater New York City area for providing high energy dance music with a touch of class and sophistication that keeps the dance floor filled, yet at a respectable volume. With over a century of combined musical performing experience, the seven talented musicians who make up the band have developed an uncanny knack to "read" their audience, knowing when to pull out that ballad for slow dancing, tone it down a notch with a cool jazzy instrumental when dining occurs, and, of course, to "kick out the jams" with an up-tempo funk number when it's time for the party to begin in earnest. The Bernadettes possess an ability both to engage the casual listener on the dance floor with a "hit" dance song, and yet also to perk up the ears of the most sophisticated music connoisseur with a classic blues number or a clever instrumental arrangement. It's this ability that distinguishes The Bernadettes as the choice for distinctive, yet entertaining and engaging musical entertainment for your party or event.

Review by Amy K.

Community EventReviewed on July 6, 2019From Ledyard, CT

Working with the Bernadettes, and in particular, the band leader Bryan, was a wonderful experience, and boy are they talented!! They played the best mix of R&B songs, both new and old and had an incredible presence and energy level. We used them for a company block party, and although it was inside a mall, they were able to adjust to acoustics and limited space and made everything work wonderfully! Would definitely book them again!

The Bernadettes:

Amy, thank you for your 5-Star rating for The Bernadettes!!! We appreciate it!!! Thank you for hiring us, and for all of your help and kindness. If we could rate you, you’d get a 5-Star rating too!!! We wish you peace and blessings!!!
