Yeah it's official, we won!!! The Bernadettes win the Fairfield County Weekly Grand Band Slam in the Rock/Groove/Soul category...

For over a decade, The Bernadettes have been providing memorable musical entertainment at a variety of events and functions including weddings, corporate events, private parties, and fundraisers. Rhythm & Blues, arguably America's finest and most well known export, is the music The Bernadettes specialize in performing. The very familiar toe-tapping sounds of Motown, the infectious dance grooves of Memphis soul shouters such as Wilson Pickett, the smooth, sophisticated Philly soul music of Earth, Wind & Fire, the hard driving funk-rock of Sly and the Family Stone, the soothing grooves of R&B crooners like Marvin Gaye and Bill Withers, and, of course, the unforgettable music of the king of soul, Mr. James Brown - this is the music The Bernadettes perform. Yes, they'll mix it up with a few modern contemporary dance hits here and there, a classic rock number, or an oldies favorite, but the emphasis is on the classic "old school" R&B music that American baby boomers have grown up with and folks of all ages have enjoyed dancing to for several decades.

Make your event a memorable event, and have your wedding be the one that family and friends will talk about for years. The Bernadettes have gained a peerless reputation in New England and the greater New York City area for providing high energy dance music with a touch of class and sophistication that keeps the dance floor filled, yet at a respectable volume. With over a century of combined musical performing experience, the seven talented musicians who make up the band have developed an uncanny knack to "read" their audience, knowing when to pull out that ballad for slow dancing, tone it down a notch with a cool jazzy instrumental when dining occurs, and, of course, to
"kick out the jams" with an up-tempo funk number when it's time for the party to begin in earnest. The Bernadettes possess an ability both to engage the casual listener on the dance floor with a "hit" dance song, and yet also to perk up the ears of the most sophisticated music connoisseur with a classic blues number or a clever instrumental arrangement. It's this ability that distinguishes The Bernadettes as the choice for distinctive, yet entertaining and engaging musical entertainment for your party or event.

The Bernadettes are an incredible band, they are the best band we have ever hired for any of our functions, and the best sound of any band I have ever heard of at an event. They had the crowd going, my guests never stopped dancing. Guests kept talking about how good the band was, I think the Bernadettes will hear from quite a few of them for future parties. The band is very professional in their sound, performance and how they handle business. They were very flexible and accommodating. We will hire the Bernadettes for all future functions, and I would recommend if anyone is looking to hire a great band as well, that they hire the Bernadettes too.
