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!
