We can play up to four hours, we have several Sound Systems and our instrumentation consists of either, acoustic guitar and vocalist with the solo package, or banjo/guitarist, and upright bass with the trio option.
After listening to a few songs, and visiting with Bradford, we knew he was perfect for our wedding this past September! We booked Bradford and Beth for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and first dances. They also stayed on and acted as "DJ" for the rest of our reception for a small additional fee, which was an amazing bonus for us. They provided all of the necessary equipment (mics, speakers, etc.), traveled out of state to join us, learned and played our requested songs, and most importantly - sounded AMAZING. They even played back-up to a couple of our friends who wanted to sing for us during the reception! We heard so much positive feedback from our friends and family on how much they enjoyed the band. I am blown away by how reasonably priced they were for how great they are - if you love good music, you will not be disappointed.
Price Range: $400-$1500
Gig Length: 30 - 300 minutes
What to Expect
I can play solo, as a duo, a trio or a full band. I have a group of incredible musicians who have mastered a myriad of instruments including slide guitar, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, piano, violin, drums etc.
We like to customize the instrumentation to the needs of the client and the event. Lets talk and we'll find out what you need and what your budget looks like to tailor our approach to fit your need!
Bradford Loomis marries grit and melody to dig to the roots of American folklore and speak of the raw reality of the human condition with passion. His stories span several lifetimes of relatable emotions; bitterness & loss, deep longing & regret, enduring hope & love, elation & joy.
Upon learning recently that his father was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s disease, Bradford starting laying the ground work for this new project. Bravery and the Bell, (releasing March 24th 2017) is about legacy, both the lineage we are born into and that which we pass on. Whether burdened or buoyed by our generational inheritance, this album confronts the drudgery of simply surviving and sounds a call to stand up to the things that stand in the way of us truly passionately pursuing that which we were made to be.
Bradford’s influences include The Civil Wars, the Swell Season, Johnny Cash T-Bone Burnett.
