The trio played at our wedding in the Catskills - they were INCREDIBLE!!! Steve communicated really well before the wedding about the sound we were going for, the trio learned songs for the ceremony, and even gently prompted us to have a first dance (which we hadn't planned out at all), to the most beautiful rendition of Neil Young's Harvest Moon. These guys are professional, talented, and just have a wonderful energy. Hire them!

Hey Claire and Martin, Thanks for your kind words about our trio. It was a beautiful wedding on a gorgeous day in the Catskills, with such a warm and friendly group. Thanks for hiring us and for recommending us to future clients through Gig Masters. I wish for both of you many happy years of marriage. Best of luck! Warmly, Steve ps....for Maine oysters check out: http://www.gliddenpoint.com (:

We hired the Bernstein-Bard Trio for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Can't possibly say enough about these guys. They were so professional and, with all the hectic wedding planning, it was such a relief to have a reliable vendor you didn't have to worry about on the day of. Steve's response time to emails/calls/any needs we had was insanely good (almost frighteningly so!). They were extremely accommodating too - they learned a song just for my wife's processional without any complaint... if anything, they were excited to arrange and perform it. The music sounded GREAT too, and we got lots of compliments from our guests. Would definitely recommend!

Booking the Bernstein Bard Trio (plus a fiddle player) was one of the best decisions we made during our Adirondack wedding weekend. We hired the band to play at our rehearsal dinner, which was a Bluegrass BBQ-style event at an ADK great camp with about 50 people attending. They played a wide range of music (with an emphasis on bluegrass at our request) and many guests commented on the excellent music. I would book them again in a heartbeat.
