Chicago's only bluegrass inspired wedding band!

Hey there,

If you're on the hunt for a live band that is fun, friendly and delightfully different then look no further.

We're music geeks who've absorbed the sounds of bluegrass, rock n' roll and timeless classics. We have a penchant for music you would imagine hearing in a smoky saloon or cocktail bar, but we realize what decade it is. Our music has an old time soul with a modern belly.

Our clients say things like "Holy cow! I can't believe you just played Old Crow Medicine Show and Outkast in the same set!" and our personal favorite, "Are you all related?"

To us, that is the utmost compliment. We like to think of ourselves as musical siblings collaborating to make each wedding an experience. We take pride in being able to deliver something slightly unexpected and see your guests go nuts on the dance floor. We like to walk away from each gig with a room full of new best friends.

Instead of trying to duplicate a song you've heard on the radio, we "gussy it up" into our own style.

We play farms, barns, wineries, swanky lofts, country clubs and everything in between - even summer camps! We also play destination weddings, festivals and private events.

No party is too small or too big. We have a professional sound team and various music packages to suit your needs.

Thanks for visiting our page. If you have any questions, feel free to fire away.
