The Bluegrass Sound Band is available for private functions as well as public, including Weddings, picnics, homecomings, company parties, benefits, festivals, reunions, Birthday parties, and many others. We can play with 3 to 6 musicians, depending on your need. Our rates are competitive as well as fair. We cover all decades of great bluegrass music. From the early tunes of the late Bill Monroe, to the Old Crow Medicine Show, Vassar Clemons and Jerry Garcia. We do it all, as we please the audience with our quick wit, funny costumes and general love for the craft. If your interested in hiring us, for your next function, stop here and see our video shows and hear our music in the Media section.

These guys were absolutely the Coolest part of our event. It wouldnt have been the same without them! They are amazing. They are kind, talented, accommodating and just a good fun group. They even came to the site of the wedding way up in the mountains (on their own time and accord!) a couple weeks prior to the day-of to get a look around in order to plan and know what to expect for themselves. Do yourself a favor and book these guys. We loved them!
