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. In other news, we are recently a FOUR PIECE BAND! Video and photos of us with our new mandolin player to come shortly. We play wedding receptions, house parties, banquets, back porches, breweries, wine bars in central Texas and have EXCLUSIVELY RECEIVED RAVE REVIEWS! We love to accomodate 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 Band Leader

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. 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.

This group was fantastic. Booked them for an outdoor banquet event and they were perfect. Easy to book and super flexible, genuine, and nice. Everyone was impressed. Will definitely be keeping their contact info and would recommend.

This was a unique situation and they were amazing. I asked them to be unplugged as my son has special needs and it was his 20th bday. They were great with him and all the little kids running around jumping on and off the edge of the stage. Music was amazing, the staff kept asking who they were, the other patrons totally enjoyed them, the owner was truly impressed and he knows his music. I'd love to have them play an adult party plugged in and next time plugged in for my son.
