Our Recipe for a Perfect Bluegrass Wedding

 

Bluegrass Wedding you say? We have performed bluegrass and old-time music at numerous weddings over the years, and we think we have come up with a formula for a smashing good time (of course, the main ingredients of some fun folks, good food, good wine, and a beautiful location will kick the whole thing off well).

If you need a bluegrass band for your wedding or other event in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, please contact us!

bluegrass wedding circle1) Choose a nice outdoor setting, with enough room (indoors or out) for dancing, as well as a cozy setting for the ceremony (we'll be posting some links here soon to several wedding sites that we have enjoyed playing at in the south bay area...)

(pictured at left is the Redwood Circle at the Quaker Center in Ben Lomond)

2) As people gather for the ceremony, some quiet acoustic music played on the fiddle and guitar, perhaps with a mandolin (Bluegrass Stomp, of course!)

3) During the processional, some beautiful mandolin duets

4) Right after the ceremony (during the recessional) a sprightly, joyous fiddle tune like St Anne's Reel

5) During the reception, some bluegrass or swing music usually adds a festive atmosphere

bluegrass wedding square dance6) After the meal, there's nothing like a contra or square dance to get everybody smiling. Everyone will enjoy the dancing - however reluctant they are at first - and suddenly it will feel like a true celebration! We have callers that will show everyone what to do, with a minimum of fuss (even those with three left feet), and we can follow up with a waltz or two to wind things up on a romantic note. Contra dance tunes might include the very danceable Mason's Apron or Old French, and our fiddler has a Cupid's quiver of beautiful waltzes to play.

Of course, we can cater the music to any style of wedding, indoors or out, and we provide sound equipment as needed.
