We had these guys play at our wedding and they were great.
Nice guys too!
I recent saw the Bridge County band at the Blissfield Bluegrass on the River, and they were just terrific! I loved the entire show. They had a great mix of old, traditional grass, along with a few new tunes. All were great musicians and great singers!...loved the harmonies. The mandolin & fiddle breaks were top-notch. After they played I talked with them, and they couldn't have been nicer. I am definitely going to hire this band for my annual summer party!

What to Expect
Bridge County Bluegrass Band is a traditional Bluegrass band, with fiddle, mandolin, guitar, string bass, banjo, and vocals. They perform a wide range of bluegrass, folk, and old-time American music, including slow mournful songs, toe-tapping instrumentals, and steel-driving fast songs.
Bridge County Bluegrass Band is a group of five talented musicians from four counties (Fulton, Henry, Lucas, and Wood) in Northwest Ohio. The group started in 2006 with four original members (Brad - mandolin, Jerry - string bass, Merv - guitar, Steve - banjo) but expanded to five members in 2012 when Jason (fiddle) was invited to join the group. Collectively, the group brings over a half century of music experience to the stage. Each of the members has played in various music groups and performed different styles of music. However, their shared love of bluegrass has brought them together for Bridge County Bluegrass Band. For those who love the driving beat of traditional bluegrass, with mournful songs and unforgettable instrumentals, get ready for a real treat. If you like some variety, listen for Merv's great country songs, Steve's original bluegrass, or Brad and Jason's Newgrass songs, including Blue Suede Shoes and Blue Cadillac.
