Wedding Music & Events

The PickPocket Bluegrass Band provides live music for weddings, private parties, and events on Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod, and throughout the country. Our warm, organic sound stems from the acoustic guitar and mandolin duo of Dana Edelman and Charlie Giordano, who form the heart of the band. We will also incorporate other talented musicians and instruments into our ensemble as your event requires.

Our songs blend the heart of American roots music with good ol’ fashioned Yankee ingenuity to deliver the freshest, toe tappin’ music around. In addition to bluegrass, we also offer a variety of processional, recessional and ceremonial music for weddings. And we make sure our song selection is always suitable to your occasion. We are happy to arrange and incorporate your favorite songs from any genre into your ceremony.

Selecting a band for your special occasion is all about matching the sound and style of music to the event and guests. The PickPocket Bluegrass Band provides a rich, natural sound that is inspired by our country’s rich, traditional, old-time, and folk music. From waltzes to Wagner and everything in between, we cook them all with our own sumptuous flavors.

We look forward to providing our special blend of authentic music for you and your guests.


  • We are so thankful to Dana and Charlie for creating such an awesome musical experience for our wedding. Not only are they super talented and extremely professional, they are very patient and took the time to talk to us to learn what we wanted. As for their performance, our guests couldn’t stop raving about them! They played beautifully at our ceremony and cocktail hour, and during their after-dinner set, people got up and danced and really enjoyed their energy. It was clear that they really knew how to read a crowd. They even played a bluegrass version of Hava Nagila for our Hora dance! Above all, we could tell that Dana and Charlie really cared about us and went out of their way to make it a truly special night. We will remember it forever. Thank you guys! All the best,Paul and Nikki
  • Just wanted to thank you for the amazing job you guys did at our wedding on 9/5 at Tower House. Everyone was raving about how great it sounded and how it went so well with the atmosphere of the day. Thanks again!Lindsay Brown
  • They made the party! Dana and Charlie played at my nephews wedding in a beautiful location and totally blended in. They attended the rehearsal to make sure they were prepared, knew the horah in case the families wanted it, and took cues from the guests in what music they should be playing when. They were approachable, friendly, and professional in the way they handled themselves, were versatile with their music, and had a good sound balance between instruments and in the space. The best testimony of all was the couple saying the evening couldn’t have been more perfect.Max King
