What to Expect
The Battleaxe Band is very flexible. We have given concerts on stage and played as background music for parties. We do both indoor and outdoor events and have a sound system if needed. Our set list ranges from songs with powerful vocals, raucous dance tunes, sweet folk songs, gospel that will give you goose bumps, and soulful blues. We have played birthday parties, dances, church events, funerals, farmers markets, art museums, libraries and more.

Additional Booking Notes
We can perform indoors or out and on stage or in a corner depending on your event. Please let us know if we need to bring a sound system. We have mics/pickups for our instruments. We can also play completely acoustically without amplification, but microphones are best for singing performances. Have an outlet/extension cord available where we will be set up. We look forward to working with you!
