Wedding in Lafayette, IN on 2/11/17

"Great choice! We are from Lafayette, Indiana, and had a February 11th wedding. We chose Stringtown Trio based off their great reviews. For our wedding, we each had our "thing" we wanted to invest in. My husband wanted to be sure we provided great food and I wanted to be sure we had some great music. My husband and I are a quieter couple, so we didn't want to the typical loud DJ type of wedding. We also knew that we didn't want to be the center of attention on the dance floor, but wanted to provide our guests with some great music and the option to dance if they wanted! We heard so many compliments about the music. They loved that it was lively and fun, but were also able to actually hold a conversation at their tables during the wedding. We are both Irish, so the Trio also incorporated some great Celtic music into the evening. The Trio was worth every penny and would highly recommend them!"

Wedding in Petoskey, MI on 9/20/2014

"The Stringtown Trio was first class all the way! So professional with quick answers to initial inquiry, and all follow-up questions. Gracious, very calming to a "nervous wedding mom", and knew just what to do, when to do it. Very flexible--no trouble at all to provide amazing concert when bride was just a few moments late. Each guest at my event was volunteering their enjoyment of the live and wonderful country bluegrass music at the reception. Lovely unique rendition of lyrics when bride and groom danced. Played almost non-stop. Intuitive with any direction I gave for toast, for cake cutting, etc....even in the middle of a tune! Oh--and the music itself was wonderful. These are very fine musicians, indeed."

" My husband I hired Mr. McCloy and his fellow musicians as a three piece Irish band to play cocktail hour and dinner during our reception. The entire process was very easy, he was always timely and responsive to our emails and even traveled for our wedding. They were there early to set up, which is always appreciated on an otherwise stressful day. Our guests really enjoyed the music and was a lovely surprise for them as they entered the venue following the ceremony. I was very pleased with the music and the ambiance it created throughout the evening. "

"Wish we could have had them play longer, but due to the local ordinance, pat 11:00PM was not possible. Everyone truly enjoyed their gig."

Wedding on Mackinac Island, MI on 8/8/15

We contracted Stringtown Trio for our wedding on Mackinac Island. They provided music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. They were so great that we asked them to stay an extra three hours until the last ferry back to the mainland.

The music style was a Celtic/bluegrass mix and it worked perfectly for our wedding. They learned a number of pieces at our request and made an especially beautiful arrangement of "Da Slockit Light - Shetland Air" for the bridal procession. The music was always appropriate for the atmosphere and the acoustics were balanced perfectly for the outdoor setting. There were a lot of children at our wedding and we got some adorable pictures of them dancing with the bridesmaids in front of the band.

Robert also performed a number of MC items for us: introduction of the wedding party, announcements, crowd control, etc... The band was on time, professional, and reacted gracefully to a few unexpected events/changes in schedule.

I can't recommend this band enough, our wedding would not have been the same without them. We received so many compliments on the music. Hire them for you wedding and you can remove "music" from your list of things to worry about.

"Incredibly accommodating, professional and TALENTED group. Good price and they learned all three songs we requested and played them wonderfully. I would book them again in a heart beat. I'm sad I only get one wedding to have them at! "

Private Party in Grand Rapids, MI on 06/02/2012

The group was punctual, talented and a joy with which to work. Many guests shared with me how much they loved their music. We had a bit of challenge with potential rain, but the group was undaunted and did a very fine job. I strongly recommend them."

Wedding Reception in Goodells, MI on 06/18/2011

"I loved having Robert and the band at our reception! We received so many compliments on the music and felt it fit my fiance (now husband) and my personality and taste and our venue perfectly. The musicians had great voices and were very talented on several different instruments. Robert was able to accommodate my special requests and managed to MC a bit as well though he felt unequal to the task: I thought he did a fantastic job! Thank you for making our wedding so memorable. Sincerely, Breanna"
