Allegheny Reign...it's not just a name, it's a challenge.
Highly recommend Chris and his group, for any occasion, they are a true bluegrass band and engaging with the crowd. They did both Gospel and Bluegrass. Loved having them and if we get the chance to have them back next year or sooner, we all look forward to it. Play on.
Allegheny Reign added so much to our family reunion. I live in Ca and the reunion was in WVa, so I had to rely on Chris for coordination and arrangements. He's delightful, returning calls and comunicating quickly and effectively. The music was wonderful and everyone wanted more!
I have seen Allegheny Reign many times over the years & I have never been disappointed, this time was no different. Their song choices were perfect for our church, they were a lot of fun, but still very professional. Can't wait to have them back!
We've had Allegheny Reign sing at our last two church revivals. Their sound is well-blended and the selection was spot on for our congregation. They have a wide range of songs with strong, heart-felt messages. I really enjoy working with Chris and the group and can't wait to have them back again!
I have seen Allegheny Reign at various venues. Bill McCartney plays a banjo the way a banjo is meant to be played, with strong leads, and sweet subtle fills. This mixes perfectly with Rick Ott's first class mandolin sound, and Chris Weatherby's top-notch rhythm guitar, and high lonesome voice. The hard driving bass of Mike Shaffer, and the harmony of this band, ties together this true bluegrass sound. This band gives a great show and does not disappoint.
Allegheny Reign performed at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Worthington, Pa. and their concert was fun and enjoyable.The Bluegrass aficionados gave them a thumbs-up. So enjoyable, we plan to invite them back in the future. Very rewarding and pleasant experience. Nice guys!

I highly recommend Allegheny Reign for any of your entertaining needs. Members played at my fiance's 40th birthday party. Great sounding music, family entertainment, and fun interaction with the crowd! Allegheny Reign is enjoyable for all ages!! - Holly Ashby
I have had the pleasure of seeing the live show by Allegheny Reign on several occasions and it is impossible to sit still when you are in the audience!!! I was thoroughly entertained each time by their musical arrangements of some classic bluegrass and gospel songs. The members of the group have a wonderful connection with each other from their spot on vocal harmonies to their humorous stories. As a lifelong music enthusiast, I give a heartfelt thumbs up to this wonderfully talented group of singers and musicians. - Connie Getz
