The Bellevue Rhythmaires are an acoustic variety band from Richmond, VA. If you want that beautiful acoustic sound, but with a wider range of songs and styles, we are the perfect band. Moving easily between bluegrass, rock, country, jazz, and soul, you will not find a more versatile acoustic act, or one with a better beat. We are equally adept at providing the perfect music for ceremonies, cocktail hours, parties, and receptions. And with a song list of over 250 tunes, we can give you any single musical style, or a custom-tailored set that will perfectly suit your event! Special song requests? No problem - we do them frequently.
Another hallmark is that you can hire us in various combinations of instruments depending on your musical needs and/or budget. The core of the group is the guitarist, and he can be augmented with any number of the following instruments: mandolin, upright bass, fiddle, banjo, female vocalist and drums.
We are a very compact unit in that we have a small PA system that requires minimal space, so we don't burden our clients with complicated logistical needs or oppressive volume (though our system is loud enough to handle any event). If you desire, we are more that happy to unplug and play the event acoustically, which is often a fun way to connect with the crowd.
Everyone loved the band! Everyone enjoyed the range of music and the versatility. My husband and I cannot thank you guys enough for such a perfect day! Would never have been the same with out you! Dana, Afton VA
Charles – thanks again for the great music provided by you and the rest of the Bellevue Rhythmaires at our recent pig and oyster roast! Our members uniformly praised the great talents in the band, the mix of songs you all selected and the great vocals of your lovely wife, Sara. Even though the weather forced us indoors, everyone really enjoyed themselves. William, Richmond VA
Everyone is talking about how great you guys were- you sounded amazing, you were fun, read the crowd well and played great dancing music! And we really loved the version of "Such Great Heights" that you guys arranged and played for us- so perfect and so unique! Thank you soooo much! Jenni, Cape Charles VA
"The Bellevue Rhythmaires have played for our annual dinner/dances at the Museum for the last four years. They are versatile, highly accomplished musicians who play a very wide variety of music. Whether its bluegrass, rock or country the guys always nail it!" Bill from Deltaville, VA
My wife and I had a very unique wedding. Charles and the band did a superb job adapting to our farm venue. I certainly feel they that they could make any customer happy and I would recommend them in a heart beat! Rory, Richmond VA

"My wedding was a fantastic success, part of which was due to the Bellevue Rhythmaires for providing a great atmosphere with their excellent performance. The customer service before the event was exceptional, with immediate responses and willingness to give us exactly what we wanted for our special day. Even with custom song requests just weeks before the event (Vivaldi's "Spring" for the processional, and Mendelsohn's "Wedding March" for the recessional), the band sent us sound clips within a week so we could decide which sound we liked best.
Finally, the best review of all came from the guests, who upon leaving, EVERY SINGLE ONE said, "I LOVED the band!" Bravo."

"We booked the BR for our rehearsal dinner. They were amazing and everyone had a great time singing and dancing. They took requests and sounded great. Charles was a pleasure to work with prior to the event. He was very professional and called before hand to make sure they were wearing appropriate attire for the event. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!"
