Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on September 9, 2018From Westport, CT

Bernstein Bard Trio got it 100% perfect! They’re really nice fellows, too. BBT played at my father’s lovely daytime birthday party. I listened to over 50 bands, interviewed 5 or 6 before hiring BBT. Steve Bernstein is a positive careful listener, was nonplussed by my restrictions, and made it easy to quickly work out the details. They’re experienced, mature, intelligent, accommodating, and love what they do. They’re easy to work with and totally trustworthy. 20% of guests were hard of hearing, wanted to talk, so BBT kept volume low. For other 80%, they played upbeat happy tunes with strong rhythm and traditional bent (pre-R&B). Wonderful experience!

The Bernstein Bard Trio:

Hey Coneye, The pleasure was ours. What an amazing man your father is! You produced a beautiful tribute to a great man and it was an honor to be there. Thank you so much! All the best to you and your family, Steve

WeddingReviewed on July 29, 2017From Kingston, NY

The trio played at our wedding in the Catskills - they were INCREDIBLE!!! Steve communicated really well before the wedding about the sound we were going for, the trio learned songs for the ceremony, and even gently prompted us to have a first dance (which we hadn't planned out at all), to the most beautiful rendition of Neil Young's Harvest Moon. These guys are professional, talented, and just have a wonderful energy. Hire them!

The Bernstein Bard Trio:

Hey Claire and Martin, Thanks for your kind words about our trio. It was a beautiful wedding on a gorgeous day in the Catskills, with such a warm and friendly group. Thanks for hiring us and for recommending us to future clients through Gig Masters. I wish for both of you many happy years of marriage. Best of luck! Warmly, Steve ps....for Maine oysters check out: (:

WeddingReviewed on June 3, 2017From Westerlo, NY

We hired the Bernstein-Bard Trio for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Can't possibly say enough about these guys. They were so professional and, with all the hectic wedding planning, it was such a relief to have a reliable vendor you didn't have to worry about on the day of. Steve's response time to emails/calls/any needs we had was insanely good (almost frighteningly so!). They were extremely accommodating too - they learned a song just for my wife's processional without any complaint... if anything, they were excited to arrange and perform it. The music sounded GREAT too, and we got lots of compliments from our guests. Would definitely recommend!
