Hire Us for Your Event
The Abbott Brothers are skilled entertainers who can bring a special touch to any festival, fair, concert series, corporate event, wedding... you name it!
Why choose the Abbott Brothers for your event?
- We are professionals. We love performing, and we like to have fun, but we also take our job seriously. When you hire us, we take it upon ourselves to exceed expectations in every way. You won’t have to worry about a thing!
- We can supply our own sound system. All we need is one power outlet; we can bring and set up the rest! As a bonus, you can use our microphone for announcements/public address between sets; no need to rent a separate sound system or learn how to use it!
- We are affordable. Who needs a full five-piece bluegrass band? We can deliver the same level of musical entertainment with only three musicians, for less.
- We come dressed to impress. The barefoot look is entirely optional. :-)
We are based in Santa Cruz and play all up and down the central coast of California: San Francisco Bay Area, Monterey Bay, San Jose/Silicon Valley, and beyond (Carmel, Berkeley, Hayward, Los Gatos, Salinas, Marina, Palo Alto, San Mateo, Redwood City, Mountain View, Campbell, Ben Lomond, Morgan Hill, Gilroy, Hollister, and more).
Our band is a hit at wedding receptions! Our genre of music (bluegrass/old country) has a cross-generational appeal that will please all ages from 1 to 101. We have a special set of wedding music that is varied and upbeat, and we play at volumes that won't blast your guests’ ears out. Contact us to see how we can be a memorable addition to your wedding.
Furthermore, we can provide acoustic music for your wedding ceremony. Picture some beautiful light instrumental music as people are gathering for the ceremony, such as some old mountain tunes or classical pieces like Bach’s Celle Suite on mandolin and guitar, transitioning into a more prominent piece for the processional. Then, right after the ceremony (during the recessional), a celebratory fiddle tune! It’s the perfect icing for your wedding cake! (No pun intended.)
Everyone loved the Abbott Brothers at my wedding. They were friendly and professional, and we still get compliments on our choice of live music months later. Grandma wanted to take them home with her! We loved the songs they picked for our first dance. They really helped to make our special day memorable. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a fun time!

I am a wedding coordinator and recently had the pleasure of working with the Abbott Brothers. They covered ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner reception at a very upscale wedding at the Intercontinental Hotel in Monterey. The Abbott Brothers specialize in Bluegrass, and for me that was already a refreshing change from "your average party music." But that's only the beginning. These three young men are consummate musicians—music is their lifeblood! With their truly contagious enthusiasm, playing and singing, they immediately became the life of the party, with everyone smiling, humming along and swinging to their tunes. Everybody had a fabulous time! And when they performed Beatles' classics (Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da and All You Need is Love) they absolutely had the crowd going… they are just great, and I can't wait to work with them again. I cannot enough recommend the Abbott Brothers!

And here’s a lengthy letter of recommendation from another one of our happy clients.
No Longer Booking Gigs
We started this project in 2012 and played our last gig in 2016. It was a fun ride!
