Brad Bailey Jazz, Blues, & Classical Banjo
About this pro
Testimonial: "Brad, we cannot thank you enough for providing the music during cocktail hour before the rehearsal dinner at Charlotte Country Club. You are so extremely talented, and who knew that anyone could get that amazing sound from a banjo? Your song selection was fabulous, and please accept our heartfelt thanks for helping to make the event even more special." All my best, Mary (mother of the groom, Charlotte, NC) The unique instrument that I play creates a big warm sound and rhythm that no other solo performer can provide. And my vocals (optional, I am available as an instrumentalist, too) are consistently described as being "smooth" and "not being too loud to talk over." Also, I have an incredible wealth of familiar jazz and blues material as well as the standard classical repertoire. Testimonial: "Brad Bailey played timeless love songs before, during, and after our wedding ceremony. He created a cool jazzy environment for our most treasured family and friends to enjoy, which was the perfect accent to our outdoor rustic wedding." -- Lindsey (bride, Concord, NC) It is such an honor to be given the responsibility for setting the unspoken tone of an event through music. I take this very seriously and love contributing to the ethos that my client are trying to create.
Though the wedding hasn't occurred yet, Brad has been very professional in his communication with me since the beginning. He knows what he is doing and I cannot wait to hear him during our ceremony and cocktail hour! I highly recommend him!Jul 17, 2014Verified

- How did you get started doing this type of work?TESTIMONIAL "I can't thank you enough for the beautiful job that you did at the wedding and for being so patient with us as we worked through the songs for the ceremony. It was exactly the feel that we wanted for the ceremony and the cocktail hour. I cannot tell you how many compliments we have gotten regarding your music. You are not only a great musician but a great singer as well. Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra would be impressed with the way you perform their songs. We are your biggest fans and if there is anything else I can do to spread the word, I would be more than happy to help. We all look forward to hearing your music again soon." JULEEmother of the bride (Concord, NC) //////// Doing music "on the side" got big enough for me to quit my day job and live my dream!
