What to Expect
“Brad was the perfect addition to our event. We added the drummer option and it rounded out the sound beautifully. They played inside during dinner and the sound was just right - the volume was perfect and the speaker he uses really distributes the sound, so the people sitting closest to the band could still talk comfortably. He was professional and responsive. We will use Brad again.”
Kristen (Event Coordinator, The Independence Fund, Charlotte, NC)
“Dressler's Restaurants have had the pleasure of working with Brad Bailey for three years. Brad is an incredibly talented musician who we have relied upon more than any other act. He seems to have other talented musicians gravitate towards him as well which has led to some really impressive trios. The Metlive Stage at the Metropolitan Complex is a large space that caters to a varied group of people. Brad has always read the crowd well and received nothing but praise from our patrons. Brad is a consummate professional and we would be happy to provide any recommendation needed.”
Tim (General Manager, Dressler’s Restaurant, Charlotte, NC)
