We made a point to cut our post-ceremony pictures short so that we could enjoy the band at cocktail hour, and it was a great decision. VBSB was fantastic, and our we got a ton of similar feedback from our guests. Talented, accommodating, and fun, they just plain put on a great show. We're hopeful we get to enjoy a full set in the near future. Two thumbs way up!

My wife and I have a real passion for bluegrass and wanted to create a weekend adventure for guests of our barn wedding. VBB were fantastic to work with, communicating well,and took the time to learn song requests. They were accommodating when we asked for two types of sets and worked well with our coordinator on pre-ceremony sound checks. The band has a wonderful authentic bluegrass style which is surprisingly hard to find in the northeast, let alone for a wedding. Many guests initially expressed surprise/concern that we weren't having a DJ playing hits but everyone left complementing the music choice. We highly recommend working with VBB, they were amazing!

VBSB was so great; pretty much everyone at our wedding commented how much they loved the bluegrass music. Matt was easy to work with and went out of his way to accommodate special requests, even to the point of finding a fiddler for the song we wanted our wedding party to walk down the aisle to. The band handled song requests from guests and had everyone on the dance floor. It was a very relaxed and fun vibe. They played both our ceremony (at Jay Peak's barn) and reception and were perfect for both--highly recommend!
