Duo: No sound is quite as beautiful as guitar and cello performing together. This option includes Richie singing with his guitar and Kari Clifton on Cello. The duo option brings out a phenomenal atmosphere. Kari and Richie have a unique style bringing out the best in songs through dynamics and musicality. This option includes your choosing up to 5 songs to add to the song list.

Trio: It only gets better when you add the talented voice of Miranda Clemenson. Picture the harmonies of male and female voices along with guitar and Cello. This option includes 5 songs of your choice added to the song list.

Full Band (The Bad Ideas): Take the trio and add the powerhouse of Drums and Bass. Richie Allen and the Bad Ideas is an original Colorado Band that also performs a wide variety of cover songs from the 60s through today's music. Critics have compared the band to Fleetwood Mac, Dave Matthews Band, and Damien Rice.

Beautiful and intricate melodies woven through with a vibrant dynamic creates the perfect soundscape for the emotionally-charged, vocals of Richie Allen and the Bad Ideas. Hailing from the Denver area, you can feel echoes of the unique musical terroir. A mix of folk, rock, americana, and the haunting presence of cello call to mind that Denver Sound, but unlike their frequently melancholy counterparts, the result is uplifting and inspiring. Richie Allen shapes dazzling lyrics performed in harmony with the talented Miranda Clemenson. Cofounder, Jake Williams, lays down the backbone of each tune on the drums alongside Chris Dreiling on bass. Kari Clifton is the mystery behind the delightful cello that dances melodically throughout each song.

Classically trained, the Bad Ideas trio can perform for your ceremony and afterword, transform for the reception into a full band. Several packages are available now!

The band's original songs have placed in the 2012 Philadelphia Songwriters Project and counted among 2014 and 2015's Colorado Music Business Organization's Song Contest winners. The Bad Ideas have developed quite a following based on their engaging live shows. This is the rising band all of your guests and attendees will be raving about!
