Having a Vineyard Event?

The PickPocket Bluegrass Band provides live music for weddings, private parties, and events on Martha’s Vineyard. We travel as well if the situation is right.

We play as a duo, trio, quartet or quintet depending on what’s required.

Our music is warm, inviting and fun. It works for almost any occasion.

Selecting a band for your special occasion is all about matching the sound and style of music to your event and guests. We provide a 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.

Wedding Ceremony Music

By incorporating familiar tunes into the processional and recessional, we provide a warm sonic backdrop for your wedding ceremony. We work with you leading up to your wedding day to plan the music. Since we are pretty laid back, the process is easy. Check out our ceremony music samples to hear the combination of acoustic guitar and mandolin.

If we don’t already know a song you’d like to have played, we are happy learn and arrange it specially for you.

Cocktail Hour Music

We can play your cocktail hour as a duo, trio or quartet. This is when the bluegrass happens!

The Party

If you’re not looking for the traditional wedding dance music band, we can play for your dinner & party as well. This works very well for the right couple.

Often, we are hired just for the ceremony. More often we play the ceremony and cocktail hour, and if we’re just the right fit, we can do the whole thing!
