Cowpoke was a fantastic band, and their show for our housewarming party was truly fantastic! Everyone who attended our event stated they really enjoyed having Cowpoke at the event. Great music, extremely friendly, sociable and a delight to work with. Played all types of great hits that catered to the entire crowd. Our housewarming party was not really a big event (around 50), so we truly appreciated that they played for us. If we ever do something like this again, we will absolutely be contacting them. I can promise you won’t be disappointed in hiring this band! Five star in my book! Thanks again for an awesome show and evening!

My husband and I accidentally bumped into Cowpoke when they were playing in Downtown Leesburg, VA, and loved their sound so much that we now make sure to see them as often as possible. My husband has a history of playing the drums and guitar, and I grew up with a dad that has played music his entire life. Drums, base, guitar, keyboard. You name it. With that my dad has. exposed me many musical concepts which help make for a great holistic sound and Cowpoke has it down to a "tee." When we heard Cowpoke play we were immediately impressed with the quality of their sound and balance, especially when working within the limitations of a restaurant/bar. There are many professional musicians that still struggle with getting such a sound balance, but they do not. The drummer knows how to produce a heavy and snappy beat, but also knows how to produce a solid and soft sound when the music calls for it. The sax player compliments the sound of every song with his own interpretive rhythm in a manner that connects with the song. The guitar player/singer has such a soulful rasp in his voice that is hard to come by these days. A "perfect" voice leaves out all the soul, but his is perfectly imperfect. The three of them together give new life to older songs and put soul into newer songs. They create an upbeat and energetic show by seaming together complex chords while creating a simple and quality sound which can be heard and felt by their audience with clarity. If you have not seen them or hired them for an event, you are missing out on such a joyful sound. You will definitely get social "bonus points" for being the one to find them. They are wonderful to interact with, cater to their customers and put on a damn good show. I am currently looking for an "excuse" to create an event just so i can hire them to play, but for now, I guess I will just have to go see them again next time and you bet I will.

These guys put on one of my favorite shows locally that I’ve ever seen!! Great sound!! Very unique which is a huge plus!! They always do amazing covers their own way as well as have some of the best original music I’ve heard from any local bands. Their sound fits any and every occasion and they can do high energy as well as chill it out and they know how to read a crowd and give them what they want !!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our minimum fee is $900 for a band performance. Typically we can perform for up to 3 hours for that price. Because every project is different, we’re happy to provide custom price quotes tiered for up to a 3 piece band. That way you can find the perfect balance for your budget and music entertainment needs.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Typically the customer will email us to start the conversation. We'll then schedule a quick call to go over specifics. From there, we will issue a contract and take a 50% deposit to hold the date. Any questions and follow up calls are welcomed once the date is confirmed. The balance is due on the day of the performance.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Typically there are 3 types of clients we work with. - Wedding couples that want music for a cocktail hour and/or reception. We perform with up to a 3 piece band. - Corporate event planners that need music entertainment for their specific events and parties. - Private party clients. These are typically celebrations like graduations, milestone birthday parties or just an excuse to get together with friends. Usually, we will perform in the client's home. Sometimes the client will rent a venue for the party. We’re open to whatever the client decides.
