Steel Betty features upbeat Bluegrass and laid-back, warm, American folk music as no one else in the area does. Love the "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" soundtrack? You're in the right Gigmasters profile. We are comfortable bringing you mellow background music or an upbeat, energy packed party-till-the-cows-come-home barn burner of a bluegrass set. Our performances feature an old timey sound and our vocal harmonies between our three powerhouse vocalists are sure to charm your guests. We play wedding receptions, house parties, banquets, back porches, breweries, wine bars in central Texas and have EXCLUSIVELY RECEIVED RAVE REVIEWS! We love to accommodate your vision for music. Want us to drive to San Antonio to play one song? Want us to learn requests? Want us to play a 4 hour fundraiser? We're excited to do all of that. We are all in our late 20's and we love bringing our energy for music to your event. I pride myself on being a prompt and reliable communicator and I'm excited to make your entertainment vision for your event a reality.

-Dave
Steel Betty, Manager

A shining review:

"Approached with little time to prepare for a benefit show hosted by Austin, Texas-area nonprofit East of Cameron, Steel Betty generously offered their time and their music to the organization. In spite of short notice, the band were well-prepared and maintained effective communication with organizers before the event to generate maximum publicity and ensure smooth proceeding during the event.
Their music is excellent--technically expert, but also flexible; impressive and fun, yet also vulnerable. They're a really amazing band composed of really amazing people. They brought out a crowd. It was an awesome show, and we're so grateful for their music and their support."

-Lynn C, East of Cameron Executive Director

A note about sound and amplification:
Our band, unlike nearly every other band has a PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED LIVE SOUND MAN PLAYING IN THE BAND, so you can be confident that our sound will be just right for the guests in your space. All we need is somewhere to plug in a power strip! We work with a simple, old time bluegrass set up, using just a couple high quality mics to capture our warm acoustic sound.
