Looking for a cheesy cover band to play watered-down versions of songs you've heard a thousand times? We hope not.
But if you're after a band who will truly impress every single guest at your event - from 18 to 88 - with their unique and eminently danceable mix of originals and covers, then you have just found your band.
Meniskus has performed live with Tom Petty, Dave Matthews, The Roots, Ra Ra Riot, Steve Winwood, Rose Hill Drive, Jason Mraz, and many more.
From classical to latin jazz to the most danceable rock music you've ever heard, Meniskus is a band that wows the most diverse of audiences. They know how to read a crowd and choose the perfect song for every moment of your event.
The unique dynamic of the band starts with a violin (classically trained Carnegie Hall vet Eric Ostberg)and a Spanish guitar (Venezuelan-born Bardusco) - both enhanced by a barrage of effects - and gets driven by an arsenal of percussion. The three players weave all their diverse flavors into a cohesive, powerful and unique sound.
Meniskus has performed over 100 shows in the last year, and is proud to have been asked to return to every one of those venues.
From a pastoral wedding in a 15th Century castle in Belgium, to rocking a festival crowd of 40,000; Meniskus has done it all.
Here's what the bride of a recent wedding had to say:
"We still talk about how great they were, and so do our friends. Not only did they create a custom medley of our favorite songs for our first dance, but they also played classical music for our ceremony. At the reception, both the older and younger crowds loved the band --- Meniskus played an amazing assortment of music, is incredibly talented and really got the whole crowd dancing! In addition, they are great guys who are fun to work with."
