$300 - $3000 per event
Seasoned professional-level musicians band based in Atlanta,Ga.,(where part of the musicians live) St. Louis, Mo., and Southern Louisiana (where I--Mark--live)primarily consisting of 5-String Banjo, acoustic guitar, mandolin, violin, acoustic bass. Sometimes we incorporate cello, viola, accordian and various percusion elements into our sound.

Relocating, completely, to the Greater St. Louis, Mo. area in May.

AFB looks much like a Bluegrass band (and we can play Bluegrass), but we sound more like a "new acoustic" ensemble. We specialize in original instrumental music, swing-jazz, Cajun (I have a Traditional Cajun Music CD coming out later this year) Bluegrass, and we even do some Irish pieces. Will customize music, based on your preferences, specifically for your event. Also able to do smaller ensembles, like a duo or trio, perhaps even a solo instrumentalist.

Our original mix blends elements of traditional jazz, classical, Irish, gypsy jazz and traditional American Fiddle music into an intricate weave of fresh, new, and exciting pieces that meander about the edges of contemporary musical imagination. From a 2-piece duo to a 5-piece band we can provide a unique musical experience for your event. All of our instruments are acoustic...not plugged-in, though we have acoustic pick-ups for amplification when needed.

Mark Raborn and his band The Acoustic Fusion were excellent. Not only are they talented musicians playing some of the best bluegrass I have ever heard live, they worked hard to accommodate our unique wedding needs. I would recommend them to family and friends in the future.

The band has not had enough time together. They were practicing sets during the breaks and the first break was way too long. Some customers felt the music was good back ground so they could talk.

The Acoustic Fusion Band’s Response:

First off, Carmen Robinson wasn't even there. As for the "practicing sets during the break" comment: 1} what else should we be doing? 2) Their sound man asked us to take a break so he could finish installing the sound system--we played the 1st set without speakers. We returned to the stage when the sound guy said he was ready for us. The only representative for the client that spoke to us was gone after the 1st hour ("headed back to Chicago") and not there once the speakers were installed. So, how the heck does he know what we sound like? We had to 'play around' mistakes by the client and didn't complain, which speaks to our professionalism, and to their lack.
