Professional from start to finish, you and your guests will be in for a treat when you hire this band.
The Humminbirds played our Labor Day wedding and it couldn't have been more perfect. They knew exactly what to do for the ceremony and even took the time to learn a specific song for us! It was so nice to not have to worry about making any additional decisions or having to be in constant contact. We received numerous compliments from young and old guests that they loved the band. My only regret is that I (the bride) was sooo busy that day and at the reception that I didn't actually get to meet them or thank them in person. I would HIGHLY recommend them!
Response from The Humminbirds:
Thank you, Shannon! It was a perfect day and a beautiful wedding. We wish you the best!
The Humminbirds were everything we hoped for - they brought great music and harmonies, lots of energy and everyone commented how good they were. I'm almost certain they learned at least one song we had requested, they were so willing to work with our program and they were good both front and center and also as background music. They arrived on time, set up everything, did all their sound checks while we continued to set up food, etc. I highly recommend them.
I just got married on Saturday (10/15/16), and although I really wanted a bluegrass band for the reception, the venue included a DJ which we would have paid for whether or not we would use them (so we used them to save money). Therefore, we had decided to find a band for the cocktail hour ... and half. And it was perfect! My vision was they would play outside in between the lawn games and the bar area, creating a festive environment. And.it.was.perfect. They are so incredibly beautiful and talented and we lucked out that they didn't need electricity, and the acoustics were on point, for being outside (weather helped also!). Prior to the wedding day, I had wanted to play mandolin (surprise my finance) of which he bought me years ago for my birthday. The Humminbirds worked with me, and practiced with me, and was willing to practice with me more (such patient people!), but I found out that due to logistics of sunset times and getting those photographs, I was probably not going to make it back in time. However, Mike and Cami were incredible to work with, and just beautiful people in general. I wish I could give more stars!!!!
Response from The Humminbirds:
Sarah: Thank you for your kind words and review! We thoroughly enjoyed working with you and the Lower Lake Ranch is so beautiful!
These guys were responsive, reliable, and overall a joy to work with. More over they played two amazing sets of beautiful bluegrass that made our wedding complete! I'd book them again in a heartbeat.
Response from The Humminbirds:
Christina, Thank you for your review. Pastures of Plenty is a wonderful setting. Congratulations!
The hummin birds played our August wedding (ceremony and cocktail hour) on a farm in Lyons, CO and it was gorgeous. Most of our guests were from out of town, and the folk-bluegrass blend they played was the perfect mountain music to showcase Colorado. They were punctual, professional and dressed the part. Easy to work with, and extremely talented, I would highly recommend them.
I got to see them in Englewood. or should I say (I was lucky to see them play)there are a must see/hear. WoW!

What to Expect
We are a detail oriented, punctual and professional group. We typically arrive at the venue 45min. to 1hour in advance and set- up. We use our own high end sound gear which allows us to control the sound quality under any circumstance. Our performance configuration is based around a tight mic array so we do not require large staging. We provide flexibility in timing for announcements, and encourage an interactive audience. We are sensitive and appropriate to the venue and circumstances of the event. We are experienced and accustomed to many types and style of venues from ballroom to barn. We have played clubs, hotels and casinos, ranches and backyards.
The Hummin’Birds began as a duet in Minneapolis, MN in 2005. Founding members Mike Silbernagel and Cami Harris were both active in the Minnesota bluegrass and old time music community playing in groups including The Bluegrass Buddies, the Ditch Lilies and the Boot Draggers. They began harmonizing together on songs by artists such as the Louvin Brothers, Flatt & Scruggs and the Stanley Brothers. The two went on to win 1st place in the 2006 Minnesota Bluegrass & Old Time Music Association duet contest at the Minnesota State Fair before moving to Denver, Colorado later that fall. Over time, several talented musicians have been included in the main line-up.
The Hummin’Birds engage wide ranging styles including country, bluegrass and gospel, jazz and swing and good old time rock and roll. They can be found playing weddingsand events in the summertime, usually in a rustic, mountainous setting somewhere in Colorado.
