Ashby Run was top notch! They were very accommodating in planning leading up to my event and responsive to all questions I had. On the day of the event they were on time and brought a professional yet fun attitude to the party...perfect balance. As far as Bluegrass goes, it must be in their blood because THEY CAN PLAY! Highly recommend this band for any event!

They were so easy to deal with! They were about the only part of my day that went off totally without a hitch! They were great, unassuming, knew exactly when to play something a little "quieter" or to "perk it up" some. They were totally professional. Showed up on time, set up, ready to go on time. I would recommend them, highly, to anyone who asks!!
