We had Bryce & Gavin play for my husband's 50th Birthday Party at a local winery and they were amazing. Great music, very chill vibe and were super great to deal with. Will definitely use them again! Thanks again guys for an awesome evening!!
These guys made our day as beautiful as it was expected. I will definately have them for an event again - longer time for sure. They had no issue setting up in a small sunroom and played so wonderfully - we enjoyed them immensely! Thank you !
Our experience working with Bryce and Gavin was truly remarkable! We knew live music was something we wanted for our wedding and they went above and beyond anything we ever imagined! We had them play for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and our guests are still talking about how much they enjoyed the live music! Very personable and professional! We can’t wait to attend some of their live shows in the future!
The Blackstone's provided all the music for the whole day for our June wedding and they were more amazing than we could have imagined. They were soft and elegant for guest arrival and the ceremony, fun and engaging for cocktails, and energetic and fun for dinner and dancing! I would hire them again in a heartbeat and would recommend them to anyone looking for some amazingly talented and fun band for their wedding or event.
Every bit of the experience working with the band was exceptional. They were super professional and easy to work with, and wildly talented. I ended up getting hurt during dinner (I’m a klutz!) and they adapted to changing the schedule and music line up with a breeze. We booked them for the whole wedding day and have no regrets, it was worth every penny and can’t wait to hear them live again.
Bryce Moore together with the other members of The Blackstones made the entire process seamless. From planning to implementation we can't think of anything that could have been done differently/better. They provided suggestions regarding the music selections for pre-ceremony, ceremony, dinner and dancing. We identified what we liked from their list and shared our suggestions, which they integrated and in some cases learned. Whenever we had a question we received prompt responses. They were beyond patient and flexible in generating a final play list for each segment of our wedding. They met in advance with the Event Coordinator at our venue to discuss process, arrived early to set up, and had everyone of all ages dancing. Bryce Moore & Gavin Ray played during the pre-ceremony, ceremony and dinner. They were wonderful. The entire band (two additional members) joined for the dancing. We were outdoors at a vineyard which presents certain challenges but they more than rose to the occasion. These men are extremely talented musicians; we still have guests complimenting them as well as asking for the wedding play list. We cannot thank them or praise them enough for what they gave us on our Wedding Day!
I’ve had the privilege of seeing Bryce perform many times, both solo and with his band and/or other musicians. Not only is he talented but he’s engaging and has the ability to perform based on the crowd’s response. I’ve seen him cover everything from country (my personal fav) to classic rock to fun little ditties that engage younger children. He’s one of the best local artists around and I encourage everyone to catch one (or more) of his performances!
We have been booking Bryce for corporate events for two plus years now. He is a favourite of our staff and customers, of all ages!
Bryce covers a range of genres and always brings down the house. If you are looking for some to play an event, book him NOW!
I hired Bryce to play at our staff Christmas event as he was highly recommended by a few of my colleagues. He did not disappoint! Bryce is a very professional, kind and talented musician. Everyone enjoyed listening to him sing and play the guitar. We will definitely reach out to him again for future events!
My husband and I had Bryce and his band for our wedding. They were amazing for everything! We couldn't have asked for a better group to play for us on our special night. Bryce played for our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and after glow and it was perfect! Everyone of our guest keep raving about it saying it was so unique to have a live band play for our wedding it was like a concert!
We have seen Bryce perform many times. He is a great musician who engages the crowd, interacts with his audience and makes the event fun. We have seen him play solo and with his bands and it's always a great night out. He is very talented and plays many genres of music. Definitely recommend him for your event.
Bryce made our special day even more memorable, a very talented musician. He played exactly what we asked of him including our first dance and it was perfect. We highly recommended him for your future events. He will not disappoint. Also if he does not know a song he will gladly learn it for you, and another plus he is in a country band if country music is what you like.
We hired Bryce for our wedding in 2014. We weren't sure at first a about hiring a singer but once we heard Bryce perform there was no doubt. His voice and personality was so warm and welcoming that it was a pleasure working with him.
We had a fairy tale themed wedding at the Alton Mill Art Centre which was a considerable drive for Bryce as he was located in Niagara, he was so accommodating, and we were so appreciative of all his efforts.
Looking back now 7 years from the day we got married one of the most prominent memories from the day was Bryce's performance and they way he interacted with our guests. He is versatile with a vast music knowledge and his voice speaks for itself.
To anyone looking to Hire a Singer just meet Bryce and you will know.
Thanks again for the wonderful job you did for us, we will never forget it.
Not only is Bryce extremely talented, he is also extremely personable. It was so great to have him for a 30th birthday party. He even took requests, it was great! I would definitely have Bryce come to an event again.
Bryce and the band could not have been better! The music they played was perfect and right in line with what my Husband and I wanted for our wedding.
You could genuinely tell the band was having a great night as well.
Countless guests told us "this band is amazing!"
Bryce sang acoustic for our ceremony and it was perfection.
Thanks so much guys, we can't wait to see you play again!
Our small winter wedding at the Inn on the Twenty and Cave Springs Cellars was made so much more perfect by the excellent musical accompaniment for the procession and pre dinner festivities. Bryce is a superbly talented individual and consummate professional. We would strongly encourage any couple to meet with Bryce and see for yourself the vast book of songs available, and absolute care for the small details to help make your occasion as perfect as possible. Truly a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end.
Bryce was attentive to our requests and did not disappoint! He was professional and punctual.
He performed at our friends wedding a couple of years after ours.
Bryce played acoustic guitar and sang for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour in September 2020. He's a super nice guy and was easy to work with. He was very flexible which took a lot of stress off us planning a wedding during a pandemic. His musical skills are unbelievable. He even went as far as playing some kid songs that our infant/toddler niece and nephew loved. It was a pleasure working with Bryce.
We hired Bryce to play at our wedding ceremony and our reception.
Bryce was an absolute treat leading up to our wedding. He accommodated every song request we had and even taught himself a specific cover that I requested.
His rates are very reasonable and he is a very talented young man. I would reccomend him to anyone looking for a guitarist with a great voice! He has a very friendly personality that made it very easy to have him apart of our wedding.
My wife and I saw Bryce play last year at the Hilton Fallsview, and not only could he play any song we requested but he took the time to chat with us. I'd highly recommend Bryce to anyone who likes good music.
My fiancé (at the time) and I had come across Bryce playing at a local establishment for a friend’s birthday. We were blown away with his performance. We knew in that moment we wanted him to be a part of our special day (our upcoming wedding). During our correspondence prior to the wedding, Bryce was amazing to work with. He was easy to reach, flexible and very accommodating. He took the time to learn two very special songs for the event and we were so pleased when we heard them. He performed during our cocktail hour and afterwards we had so many guests come up to us and compliment his performance. If you’re looking for some great entertainment to add your event, BRYCE IS YOUR GUY!!!! Thanks again for being a part of our wedding and making it that much more special for us and our guests! :)
Our agency had the pleasure of having Bryce provide musical entertainment for our Christmas Banquets over the last two years. Bryce was able to appeal to a wide age group by providing a wide genre of music and styles. He has an absolutely beautiful voice and his guitar talents were superior. On stage he projects a warm and engaging personality, with a sense of humour. Bottom line, he provided a great show that appealed to the whole crowd who at the end were begging him for a few more songs (which he did provide.) I wold recommend Bryce for any event that you may be having . He is in tune with the crowd and knows how to please plus he instinctively knows when to lay back (during dinner), and when to 'crank it up'. He provides a great time for all and engages the audience. It is rare to find a musician of his calibre that can appeal to so many different tastes. You will not go wrong by booking him for your party or event.
The decision to book Bryce for our wedding actually occurred long before there was talk of marriage when my then girlfriend and I saw him playing a patio gig in Niagara Falls. Booking Bryce was 100% the right decision. He learned the songs we wanted for our first dance and my wife's dance with her Father. He kept our guest thoroughly entertained and dancing. We received so much praise for booking Bryce and fielded so many questions about how we found him, it was tremendous. Beyond being a great singing guitarist, he is a true professional. As stated he made our best day even better. We couldn't have been happier.
Bryce has played for us on a number of occasions including back yard BBQ's for people of all ages and a couple of Teenage girl Birthday parties. He never disappoints. He aims to please all and does a very good job of it. It isn't always easy to impress teenage girls, but they all loved him! He is able to perform a wide variety of genres and he is a great entertainer. Thanks Bryce for never letting us down!
Bryce played at our wedding in September and was awesome!
We hadn't actually met in person til the big day but all went perfectly. We emailed prior to the event and discussed which songs, start times etc and all responses were timely.
Bryce played the ukulele during the ceremony which sounded wonderful for our outdoor ceremony and was even better than I expected. I had some specific songs in mind and he learned them for the wedding.
We had requested he change to guitar for cocktail hour and played songs from our list as well as others that fit the vibe. Many of my guests commented on how good he was.
All in all, I highly recommend Bryce for your next event!
We hired Bryce to play at our wedding on September 18, 2015. He was amazing to work with leading up to our wedding and on our wedding day our guests loved having Bryce play during our ceremony. The only thing I would have changed would have been booking Bryce for our reception as well. Thanks again Bryce!
Bryce recently provided the entertainment for the cocktail hour for a family wedding. The bride and groom sent him several song requests and he did not disappoint. Everyone enjoyed his easy musical style and he was a compliment to a lovely evening.
I found Bryce through the internet to play at my daughter's wedding service this past weekend. It was a country themed wedding so he played country songs accompanied with his guitar. He also played Canon in D, to my surprise, which my daughter requested for the procession. Bryce did a wonderful job and the guests loved him! He was very accommodating and was definitely the right choice. Thank you Bryce
Bryce played at our Quest Community Health Centre annual BBQ this past June. He has done so for the last five years. Everyone to a person (and there were over 625) clearly enjoyed Bryce's musical skills on the guitar, his great voice, and his truly engaging personality and style. His positive energy was present throughout the afternoon as he spoke with the crowd and responded to requests for a wide variety of songs, and as those who attended swayed, clapped, sang, and even danced to his music. The quote "music, the greatest communication tool in the world" certainly comes into play here. The Quest CHC BBQ has become a special community event for many reasons, one of those is definitely Bryce Moore.
I contacted Bryce about a month before the day I wanted to ask my long time girlfriend "the question." Right off the bat, I could tell that Bryce has a passion for what he does. I explained the plan and he also offered some more suggestions to make it even more special. On that day, he gave us a beautiful serenade of "Marry me" by Train while I gave my little speech then later dropping to one knee. She said "yes" and now we have a beautiful memory. Guys, I highly recommend calling Bryce if you are thinking about popping the question!
Bryce Moore was more than just a component of our event. His music resonated with our entire party. It was a mix and mingle atmosphere and the music was the perfect accompaniment. Bryce tailored the type of music and volume to the crowd so that it was not intrusive..but was very complimentary. I already have plans to book him again. Thanks BRYCE!!!
I work at Community Living in a group home setting. Bryce performed for a very small group and was 100% professional. He even encouraged the residents at the group home to participate in playing instruments and sing alongside him. His professionalism and adaptability, not to mention his extensive knowledge was uncanny . a great time was had by all.
We hired Bryce for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Talking to Bryce and planning what music we wanted on our special day was very easy. It was like talking to a friend that we had known for a long time. He is also very adaptable and learned some songs for our ceremony. He played them flawlessly and was the perfect touch to our wedding. All of our guests loved him and loved how outgoing he was. Bryce is an amazing guitarist and vocalist and would make any occasion extraordinary. The best part is that you can see him play at bars and restaurants around the area, so definitely go see him play, you will not regret it! Thank you again Bryce for making our day!
Hired Bryce for a surprise marriage proposal at the butterfly conservatory in Niagara Falls in September of 2014 and was not dissappointed. He was amazing to work with during the intense planning stage. He was super flexible, studies the three songs I wanted him to play, made me feel totally at ease during this stressful time. He was there on time, dressed sharp, and ready to amaze. He play three songs flawlessly! She loved it and we will be including him at our wedding in the summer! Beautiful voice and an amazing musical talent on the acoustic guitar! There are moments in life we won't forget, Bryce made our proposal just that.... Unforgettable!!!! I am always ready to provide a reference for this rising star.

Bryce played an assortment of acoustic tunes for our beach wedding ceremony this past summer and it was exactly what we were looking for. He's the nicest guy and the whole booking process went very smoothly. Bryce has a list of songs/artists for you to choose from and I'm sure is very capable of learning anything else you might be interested in. Our guests also thought he was great and had fun chatting with him during cocktail hour. If you're in the Niagara region and looking for a talented guitarist/vocalist, I would highly recommend you contact Bryce for parties or weddings! He also plays at a variety of bars and clubs in the area, which helped out as we were able to go and hear him and meet him before finalizing things.
We visited Niagara Falls for 4 days in early June 2014. On our way to Clifton Hill from some touristy thing, we found a hidden public garden with beautiful, serene paths through a lush atmosphere of luxuriant greenery and shadow-dappled ponds.
While enjoying the ambiance of this setting, we heard the distinct sounds of live music from somewhere nearby. And off we went...
It was a Hard Rock Cafe, just behind a fence, out of the garden, and across a busy street.
There, on a Wednesday afternoon around 4 or so, we found a lively, enthusiastic and highly talented solo musician playing to a crowd of patio drinkers and tourists.
Clifton Street, (or Clifton Hill, who knows?) lost its allure as this guy charmed the birds out of the trees and the beers out of the taps with his very broad repertoire of contemporary tunes, and tunes that were contemporary 20 or more years before he was born. What an awesome discovery!
Bryce Moore, as it turns out, is a guitarist first, and a musician extraordinaire right along the way!
His mastery of the fretboard kept the crowd engrossed and happy. The wide range of requests he met, suggested that he has been studying music since several years before he was born.
Van Morrison would have been delighted to hear Bryce Moore's rendition of his tunes. The Dead? Yup. He was right there. Jimmy Paige? Mhmm. This guy knows, and lives, his music.
You would be hard pressed to find a more capable and appealing musician anywhere on the circuit. And he comes from somewhere close to Niagara Falls. Lucky locals.
He should be out promoting albums and touring, just so the rest of the country can enjoy the warm and personable nature of his performance. I've never met him, or heard of him before, but if I were planning a return trip, I'd make sure he was scheduled to play somewhere in town while I was there.
Clifton Street lost some tourist dollars that Wednesday afternoon, but the Hard Rock scooped them up, and my squeeze and I topped off a visit to the Falls that could have been equalled only by going right over the Falls in a shopping bag.
It was that engrossing and satisfying to have discovered by accident, a Bryce Moore afternoon on the very patio of complete musical satisfaction.
This guy is a major part of what makes Niagara memorable, and re-visitable, well after you've seen the falls.
