Mac/Glidden is a two-man, acoustic cover band, specializing in rich vocal harmonies and carefully arranged guitar work. Andy and Grant have been playing and singing together for over 15 years. They play music professionally in the New York area and maintain an extensive repertoire of popular songs from 1960's pop, rock, and R&B right up through contemporary music, all arranged for duet. Their unique take on the traditional party/wedding cover band has produced great feedback so far and they look forward to bringing their talents to your next event.

Pop, Soul, Heavy Rock, Blues, R&B, all have a place in the Mac/Glidden repertoire. Taking songs they know and love from different eras and genres, they carefully rework or "arrange" them for acoustic guitar and vocal harmony, without sacrificing liveliness. Consistently, Mac/Glidden manages to get crowds dancing and feeling good, even without the assistance of a full backing band, and they pride themselves on that.

Both born in New York City, Andy and Grant met in elementary school, forging a friendship that would be the foundation for various musical projects over the years. As they came into their own as musicians, they developed a unique chemistry for performing and writing songs together, ultimately recording a full length album in 2009 and, subsequently, releasing original tracks in the years since.

Their other musical endeavors have received critical acclaim from: Huffington Post, WPKN-FM, WFAS-FM, and Captain Sib; to name a few.

Mac and Glidden are brilliant musicians and entertainers. They created the perfect mood with excellent song choices while our wedding guests were eating, then got everyone dancing in the second set with some amazing songs for guests of all ages to enjoy. They even learned a song especially for our event. We set them a challenge but they did such an amazing job of our request they even got my mother in law dancing on a chair in the middle of the dance floor! They interacted with the crowd and got everyone enjoying our wedding celebration to the max. Thank you so much, we have had so many compliments on the band and songs played!

I hired Mac/Glidden to play for my husbands 60th birthday party. I thought they would be the perfect fit for us and I wasn't wrong. Andy had a prior engagement but Grant had his sister Hannah accompanied him. Both were friendly, polite and accommodating. They played a mixture of everything and also took requests. My friends loved them and I received a lot of compliments on choosing them. What I also liked is they never got loud where you couldn't talk to the guests but you always heard them. I have had friends ask for their information already ??. If I play another event down the road I would definitely hire them.

They were GREAT! More than Great, WONDERFUL! Our friends all asked where I found them, they were captivated. They took requests, they incorporated the crowd, and were great sports when an incident happened to their equipment by one of our guests... they were super flexible in regards to schedule as the heat was so bad we pushed back an hour. We then extended them more past their time they were so good we didn't want it to end!! They also blended in really well and it didn't feel awkward at all! We will definitely be booking them again for anything and everything! Can't wait to party with them again!
