"A great trio - strings all over the place, playing beautiful music of all different styles and idioms." - Jay Ungar

The Bernstein Bard trio did an excellent job for Greta and Rob's wedding. As per my daughters request, they made beautiful arrangements of Beatles music for the ceremony. The music they provided for the cocktail hour was wonderful and enjoyable for everyone. I was most impressed with the professionalism and musicianship of the Bernstein Bard trio. as a musician myself, I truly appreciate the high level of craft they bring to the job. I would highly recommend the Bernstein Bard trio to anyone!

The trio played at our wedding in the Catskills - they were INCREDIBLE!!! Steve communicated really well before the wedding about the sound we were going for, the trio learned songs for the ceremony, and even gently prompted us to have a first dance (which we hadn't planned out at all), to the most beautiful rendition of Neil Young's Harvest Moon. These guys are professional, talented, and just have a wonderful energy. Hire them! -Claire N, Kingston, NY

We hired the Bernstein-Bard Trio for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Can't possibly say enough about these guys. They were so professional and, with all the hectic wedding planning, it was such a relief to have a reliable vendor you didn't have to worry about on the day of. Steve's response time to emails/calls/any needs we had was insanely good (almost frighteningly so!). They were extremely accommodating too - they learned a song just for my wife's processional without any complaint... if anything, they were excited to arrange and perform it. The music sounded GREAT too, and we got lots of compliments from our guests. Would definitely recommend! -Mark R, Westerlo, NY

Booking the Bernstein Bard Trio (plus a fiddle player) was one of the best decisions we made during our Adirondack wedding weekend. We hired the band to play at our rehearsal dinner, which was a Bluegrass BBQ-style event at an ADK great camp with about 50 people attending. They played a wide range of music (with an emphasis on bluegrass at our request) and many guests commented on the excellent music. I would book them again in a heartbeat.

We had our wedding at Century House in upstate NY in September. These guys killed it, the guests were even on their feet and applauding during the ceremony. They learned a beautiful Russian song for my wife and they also learned a cool version of "Girl you'll be a woman soon" for the processional. We loved all of their Beatles covers too. In short, these guys rule.

The Bernstein Bard trio was professional, accommodating, and most importantly, sounded fantastic. After playing a beautiful set for our wedding ceremony, which couldn't have gone better, they sped things up a bit and entertained our guests for an hour of cocktails. Everyone had great things to say and it really added a unique touch to our wedding. I would recommend the trio to anyone. Couldn't be happier!

My husband and I are huge music lovers, and we hired the Bernstein Bard Trio (adding a violinist to make it a Quartet), as they came highly recommended by our event coordinator. We asked them to play classical music for the ceremony, bluegrass for the cocktail hour, and jazz for the reception. It was a tall order - and boy, they did not disappoint! The music was phenomenal; our guests were raving about it all night long. Additionally, they were very professional, friendly, and accommodating in the months leading up to the wedding. I would hire them again in a heartbeat, and I encourage anyone else to do the same. FANTASTIC job, thank you Bernstein Bard Trio!!!

They were absolutely wonderful! With no prior discussion or agreement they allowed two guests to sing using their equipment while they improvised playing along. It was fantastic! We received compliments all night and afterwards just how much the guests enjoyed the music! They were personable, experienced and provided our reception with just the right atmosphere! We highly recommend The Bernstein-Bard Trio along with their fiddle player!!

We were beyond pleased with the Bernstein-Bard Trio. Not only are they terrific musicians, but their warmth and friendliness made it feel like they were part of our extended family. It was a pleasure working with them, from the first phone call to the last song. Thank you, gentlemen, for helping to make the wedding such a joyous occasion.
