Here is what folks are saying about Bluetrain
Deb says: “Bluetrain Bluegrass is awesome! Booked them for a corporate event in DC. They arrived on time and quickly adjusted to the last minute changes in set up. From initial contact through email, to the end of the event, the band was courteous, professional and always willing to accommodate any requests I made. The crowd loved them and I highly recommend them. I promise-You won’t be disappointed!”
Jon says:” Currently-existing words are inadequate to describe how happy my wife and I were with Bluetrain Bluegrass Band. We had a 110 person wedding on a Virginia farm. They were a huge hit with us and our guests!”
Drew Says: “From the bottom of my heart, I want to thanks these guys, and recommend them for anyone, and for any occasion! They were accommodating on our schedule, they were interactive with our guests, and my grandfather (the guest of honor) and played UNBELIEVABLY. YOU WILL NOT REGRET THESE GUYS, Seriously!”
