Reviews for Bluegrass Bands in New York
Review by Michael R.
Highly recommend! They were so talented, fun, and easy to work with! We had a great time with them!
Review by Tom L.
Mama Juke played at a special event for my non-profit and they were terrific! Not only is this a group of skilled musicians, they were easy to work with, showed up on time and engaged the crowd with their lively, fun and energetic sets. Their bluegrass inspired sets were exactly what I wanted for this event (they also can play blues, rock and roll and other styles). They mixed it up with both covers and new music. I will definitely hire them again and I recommend them to anyone who loves great music!
Review by Suzanne C.
We can’t wait to have them back! The selection of songs was just perfect - the first set crescendoed into the second. We had over 100 very happy listeners including one dancer! Thank you!
