"Hot Pickin 57s were an absolute delight to work with. The group had exceptional attention to detail and nailed the set, including our special requests. Fun, upbeat bluegrass and country was exactly what we were hoping for in our "rustic" style wedding. They are an incredible group of musicians!”

     - Amy C // Bride

“From the start, they were great at communicating, and helped work through potential challenges. They even said yes to some curveballs (can you play for the ceremony too?) and saved the day for us. They showed up early, did a fantastic job both with music selections, and engaging the group, and announcements. I can't recommend them enough!  

     - Cassandra Crudo // Bride’s Best Friend

Working with Hot Pickin 57s was perfect! They offered excellent suggestions for the wedding ceremony and reception (including the first dances). The music was perfect and the guests loved dancing.
