There are not enough words in my vocabulary to accurately praise "The Bradberries"! We hired them to play our wedding that took place in September of 2017, and from the very beginning, they were an absolute pleasure to work with. While searchin...
g for entertainment for the night, a friend recommended them and after reading very positive reviews on several sites and talking with people who have seen them perform, it was a no brainer to hire them for the reception even before we had seen them perform. And they absolutely did not disappoint!
On a professional level, it was an absolute pleasure working with them to put everything together. It was very obvious they have been entertaining for a while and knew what to do to make sure everyone had a great time. They were quick to begin communicating what they needed from us and were quick in responding to any questions we had for them. They took the time to get to know us and what we were hoping to get out of the night. We quickly realized that with Brad as the MC for the night, we didn’t have to stress over anything and that in its self was worth having them involved.
On the day of the wedding, they were fantastic. They went above and beyond to help make the day as smooth as it was. They did everything from joking and talking with us while they were setting up, to going out of their way to scramble to set up a microphone and a PA system for the outside ceremony when we realized we didn’t have one. They really worked to plug several holes that came up last minute to keep the day rolling smoothly. They were also extremely accommodating in working with us to add a few, probably not ever requested, things into the night that were really important to us. They were gracious enough to help fulfil my wife’s request to surprise me by stepping offstage and allowing their own guitar and microphone to be used by one of our friends to perform the song for our first dance.
Once all of the formalities were complete, and it was time for them to start, there was not an empty spot on the floor! They seemed to know exactly the right songs to play at the right times. And every song they played, they played the hell out of! Everything from Brad strapping on a rubber butt and rapping to “Baby got Back” to absolutely killing the cover of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” on the fiddle! The two songs they learned for us were done so well, it seemed like they were always a part of their set. Everyone from 9 to 90 was out on the floor the whole time they played and only sat down when they took a break. When we speak to people who attended, the band is always the first thing they mention. Everything from hiring them in the very beginning to when Brad took off the last of his oversized gimmicky hats at the end of the night was professional, personal, entertaining and was a huge part of making our day one that won’t ever be forgotten.
We have seen them several times since they played our reception, and they always take the time to at least say “hi” and even throw some comments out to the crowd and at us before playing the songs they learned for our reception. If you’re looking for a group to entertain a crowd, with incredible music and energy, you will be missing out if you don’t choose the Bradberries! I cannot recommend them enough!
