We are available for weddings, corporate events, private parties, holiday shindigs, festivals and other special events. We specialize in getting the young and old up movin’ and shakin’, but we can also play a bride down the aisle, as sweet as can be. In addition to the (non-exhaustive) list of songs in our repertoire found below, we can also learn a few specific songs (e.g. for a wedding ceremony, reception or holiday party) to customize your musical experience – just don’t ask for Freebird. Contact us for pricing and availability. 

TESTIMONIALS

"Hiring Sweet Auburn String Band for our wedding was one of the BEST decisions we made to make our wedding day absolutely perfect. They were accommodating, flexible, responsive to any question or concern I had prior to the day. Every guest was extremely impressed with their music, how they presented, and overall how awesome they were. I can't recommend SASB enough and I hope to work with them again for any event in the future. Highly, highly recommend you will not regret it!"  -Danielle H. 

"The Sweet Auburn String Band played at our wedding reception, and we couldn’t have been happier with the music. The band members were very nice and professional, and our guests raved (and are still raving) about their songs and musicianship."             -Marianne 

"Having Sweet Auburn String Band play at our wedding reception was one of the highlights of the night.  So many of our guests remarked to us afterwards how much they enjoyed the music, and how much fun they had on the dance floor. These guys are truly talented musicians and know how to craft the music to fit the flow of the evening."  - Megan

"For our southern-styled wedding, we were looking for a bluegrass band that could deliver a sweet tempo, but also turn it up to get our guests on the dance floor. ...Leading up to the wedding the band was prompt, professional, and accommodating to our needs. They all carried themselves like gentleman, but also as true professionals. They were able to take requests and learn a song for our recessional.  We've had many guest comment months later how much they enjoyed the band. We got a lot more than we could ever have imagined or bargained for. I wouldn't only highly recommend Sweet Auburn String Band, I would put them as the best choice."   - Daniel
