Mike and Brian are an acoustic duo that plays classic oldies from Old Time Jugband, Johnny Cash, Johnny Horton, Everly Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and other classics. We have played at Cup of Joe Coffee shop in Cedar Falls, Iowa City Farmers Market, Private Parties and Retirement Homes
Mike & Brian played our retirement community's annual Fall festival. On the day of the festival, we had to make a last minute decision to move the festival from outside in tents, to an indoor location due to weather. Mike & Brian didn't skip a beat. They adjusted to this location change without complaint.
They arrived with ample time to set up and warm up.
I was very impressed by their adaptability and crowd pleasing music. And they were able to adjust their volume as the room desired.
Overall: They were delightful to work with. Would hire again!
Price Range: $40.00 per hour plus travel expenses
Gig Length: 40 - 200 minutes
