The band is able to adapt their set to any performance environment (weddings, parties, corporate events, art shows, you name it!) and ensure that they are the extra piece of your successful event.
Cold Weather Company was the perfect fit for my awards ceremony event! Not only did we love their unique sound, but they were great throughout the entire booking process. Accommodating to our needs by catering their music to fit the event style incorporating instrumental and vocals. In addition, they were great to work with being very communicative throughout and we really appreciated their interest in our events theme. All in all it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend them. I hope to use them again for future events!
Cold Weather Company is an excellent band! We hired them for our downtown music series and received rave reviews. They're fun to listen to and engage well with the audience. Some people came specifically to hear them after discovering them on Spotify! They're also very professional and easy to deal with. Highly recommend!
Cold Weather Company were an amazing addition to our event. Steve, Brian, and Jeff exceeded all expectations with original songs + covers! They have a unique sound, where Mumford and Sons meets Bon Iver. Perfect choice if you are looking for an Indie/Folk band, who put their twist on anything from The Beatles to Vance Joy. Already booked them again! Thank you, CWC!
They were great!
Easy to work with. Very accommodating.
Very talented. Nice guys too.
We’ve known Cold Weather Company for as long as we can remember. From the first time we heard their music, we knew they were special. They make music that touches your soul and the greatest part about it is that it’s for everyone. Don’t let the name fool you, you can listen to their music all year round!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Cold Weather Company! Steve was my primary contact and he responded to every email promptly. He answered yes to all requests. The band arrived on time and agreed to stay for a late night acoustic set. They were consummate professionals. The music is why we chose the band, and it was amazing & beautiful to hear live. They were the perfect blend of background music that you really want to stop your conversation to listen to, however their cover of Let It Be was so moving, it silenced the room. We could not have chosen better for our fundraiser, all 150 guests were entertained! We are still hearing rave reviews.

Additional Booking Notes
For most performances, we are a three piece consisting of three vocals, two acoustic guitars, and a piano. For a stripped down (without a sound system) performance, we would just require an electrical outlet for a piano/small guitar amps.
Our larger performances utilize our PA system (including vocal mics). We also work with a variety of talented string/horn/percussion players for more expansive performances. Please feel free to ask about that type of performance, as our initial quotes are generally just for a three piece.
Due to our flexible sound and technical requirements, we can play an intimate living room to a full stage without any loss of quality - it just depends on the type of show you're looking for!
