We’d love to be part of your celebration and we want to help make the day memorable! 

It would be our pleasure to provide old-time southern music for your event. We can provide appropriate music for any and all portions of your wedding or other event: from the rehearsal dinner to the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception - and a real country square dance is the perfect way to bring everyone together to celebrate the joyous occasion.  Of course, a summer barbeque wouldn't be complete without live southern music!

Please drop us an email and let us know what kind of event you're planning and we'll get back to you with the details of what we can provide! 
Here's what some folks have said about us:


We booked the Shoe String Band to play our wedding, and we could not have been more pleased.  A perfect sound for celebration and dancing that even had the old folks hopping about.  They played a smooth and serene song for the ceremony that helped calm our nerves and kicked it up for a lively time for square dancing.  Many thanks to them for all the fun and fond memories.

You guys did such a great job- Thank you!                                                            

Thanks for everything The Shoe String Band did to make our wedding memorable!  I really think you helped to set the tone for my wedding that I was hoping for!

My husband and I hired the Shoestring Band to play our wedding at the Roxbury Barn and we couldn't have been happier with them! The music was fantastic and the perfect fit for the for the setting of the ceremony and reception, our guests loved it and everyone had a great time... Aside from the music, the band was a pleasure to work with - very professional, friendly, and helpful in making the most of the evening. Catherine & Jeff


On behalf of the Woodstock Land Conservancy and everyone who attended Saturday's event at the Longyear Farm, a huge thank you to your band for making the ambiance just perfect.  Great weather, peeps and food go a long way, but great music adds the final perfect touch, taking the event from great to awesome. We were thrilled you guys could make it on such short notice.  Thanks again! 

From the Phillies Bridge Farm Festival...
Thank you again for playing on Saturday. We had a great festival, and your music added a lot to the lively farm atmosphere. I hope you all enjoyed the day as much as the attendees enjoyed listening to you.

The Shoe String Band is great!  Their music is inspiring - from the first note to the last, the dance floor is filled.  The band is easy to work with, always on time and is a first-class operation. 

Here are a couple of examples of tunes we often play for wedding ceremonies:

Coleman's March (trad.) - Groom's Processional: 

Swannanoa Waltz (Rayna Gellert) - Bride's Processional:
