The Herringbones are a group of experienced musicians who love to provide energetic, high-quality entertainment. We play primarily private events like wedding receptions and private parties as well as large community events like town festivals and concert series. No event is too big or too small, too formal or too casual! We'll be there!
"Where did you find this band?"
This is the question our customers get most often from their guests. Because we aren't a household name, people are often surprised how such a great-sounding band isn't more well-known. The reason is that we are very selective in the markets we operate in and the events that we play. We do play and really enjoy public events but primarily focus on the private event market, wedding receptions specifically.
Why should we hire you?
Our primary goal is really simple: To help you create an event that you and your guests will still be talking about 20 years from now. We want everyone to have such a great time that they will not want to leave. Your event will be personal and customized, unlike any other, and also energetic and exciting.
Our second goal is that everyone has a good time. We try to play the widest possible assortment of music so that everyone can hear-- and maybe even dance to-- something that they like.
And please note that two of our band members are also professional DJ’s, so we can not only set up playlists for when we are not playing, we can also emcee your event with ease and grace.
How far ahead should we book the band?
For some events we are booked over a year in advance. Typically we are booked 6 to 12 months ahead, but if we have not booked 2 events in a given month and we have the band members available we’ll take events as little as 30 days ahead if it isn’t a wedding—weddings are too involved to do properly in 30 days.
Can we buy your CD or download it on itunes?
While some of the members of the band pursue their own projects and do studio work, we are a live band and put our time and energy as a group into excelling in live situations. We choose not to drive the band's costs (and therefore your cost) up in expensive recording studios. We focus on one thing: making your event one that everyone in attendance will enjoy and remember!
We sometimes call ourselves the "best band that flies under the publicity radar." We just love to play great music and see people having a great time as a result.
We may also play the widest range of music of any band you could hire and play it authentically (true to the style). For example we can follow a Michael Jackson song with an Eric Clapton, John Mayer, or a Merle Haggard song or recent Top 40 tune.
We are also comfortable just about anywhere. We can play on a good sized front porch or throw on a tux and play at a country club, or play at a community concert, a festival, or a corporate event.
