  • We hired Drymill Road for our wedding and could not have been more happy. We spent a while looking at bands in the area and after seeing Drymill Road perform live, we know they would be perfect for us. We hired them to play the ceremony, reception (including doing the announcements) and even an after party and they were fantastic throughout the whole day. Robert was great to work with before the wedding. We discussed the wedding details, announcements and song selections over emails and phone calls. They were able to perform all of our requests and provided several great suggestions that we ended up using including the bride’s entrance. We were a little nervous about our first dance as we wanted Bob Marley’s "Stir it Up", but had never heard it in a slow dance tempo. Drymill Road played it beautifully and everyone in the reception was blown away. They were truly the best band we could have had at our wedding. Everyone commented after, from the oldest guests to our younger fr... Read more

  • Dry Mill Road exceeded all expectations at our wedding. These guys are serious musicians who know how to manage the atmosphere at a party. They had the dance floor full all evening. We heard nothing but praise for them all throughout the night and ever since. We had requested that one of our wedding party sing a song with them, and they had no qualms with it. Dry Mill also learned our wedding song and played it beautifully. They are accommodating, professional, and most importantly, a phenomenal band.

  • The first thing I did in planning our wedding party was to book Drymill Road! And that was one of the best and easiest decisions I made. Not only were they incredibly easy to work with in the planning phases, their music made the party memorable and so, so special. I received many positive comments about their music and one guest even asked me "How did you get Drymill Road" to play? I hear they're really busy". But the truth is that getting this fabulous band only took an e-mail! Thanks to Drymill Road for making our celebration special!

  • Six stars! Drymill Road performed at our wedding in August (ceremony, cocktail hour and reception), and were a big hit with everyone. Coordination leading up to the event was also very easy, Robert was communicative and accommodating. Love them!

  • We were lucky enough to have Drymill Road play our wedding and cocktail hour, and we could not have been more pleased. Robert was a pleasure to work with and so helpful in coming up with suggestions for our ceremony music. During the cocktail hour, they got our party started with exactly the right tone and tempo, and we got so many compliments on hiring them. On top of all of this, they were also very reasonably priced compared to other bands we spoke with. We were so happy to have found them and hope to have a chance to work with them again sometime in the future.

  • My now-husband and I saw Drymill Road play their bluegrass/newgrass music at various local venues and events during the last couple years. Once I found out they also do weddings, there was never any doubt that we would have them play our wedding. They provided our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception music. They were professional, honest (pointing out that I accidently overpaid them and returning the overage!), provided great entertainment, and are all-around great guys. I think their style of music could fit with any venue (ours was in a modern art museum). I received several compliments from guests. My maid of honor said she got chills from their version of "Hallelujah" (in the style of Jeff Buckley) during the processional; for me, it was the perfect musical backdrop to a very emotional moment. Their music is one of my favorite memories from our wedding.

  • Drymill Road provided the music for my wedding reception. They were fantastic! Robert from Drymill was my main point of contact and he was incredibly responsive, and followed up with me throughout the planning process, which really helped me out! He even accommodated a complete time change for the reception and even came early to set up a PA system through which we played some quiet background music during dinner before the band went on. Drymill Road learned a special song for us for our first dance that was outside of their song list, and they did a fabulous job. They played the night away, and guests danced and loved the tunes. They also MC'd the entire event, announcing the bridal party, first dance, cake cutting, boquet toss, etc and were so accommodating. I think they were a great wedding band, and I would high recommend them for anyone looking for some awesome bluegrass/newgrass band with excellent customer service! Thanks guys!

  • Drymill Road played for our wedding ceremony and reception. Outstanding musicianship! Fantastic diverse song repertoire inlcuding well crafted exciting original songs. Drymill Road exudes positive energy and play their instruments effortlessly. Our guests had so much fun dancing and loved every moment with the band. The band seemed to have had just as much fun as our guests. They have high quality sound equipment. They were very accomodating, respectful, and friendly. I would hire them for any event and I would buy tickets to one of their shows in a second. Check out their new album and book them while they still have the time to play your event.

  • Our reception musician cancelled 4 days before the wedding, and Drymill Road came through for us at the last minute! They agreed to play for our reception at Historic Rosemont Manor in Berryville, VA; they charged a very reasonable price and did a wonderful job. Everyone loved the music. We were SO thankful to have them; they were awesome!

  • THIS BAND IS AMAZING. Seriously. I am a music snob. So when it came time to picking a band for our wedding, I didn't just check out a few bands. I previewed scores of bluegrass bands online. After narrowing down to about six or seven amazing bands (really, these bands were all incredible--any of them would have been great), Drymill Road just rose to the top of the pack. Part of it was their sound--rich and warm, and just really fantastic--but part of it was their great communication and flexibility. I came to Robert Mabe, the bandleader, with a very specific vision, and more than a few requests--and the band more than rose to the occasion. The band was wonderful, professional, had a strong presence when they were getting everyone on the dance floor (imagine a rousing bluegrass Hava Nagila), and a great mellow background sound when they played the cocktail hour. They played "I Will" by the Beatles when we came into the cocktail hour, and they learned a special request "Wildfl... Read more
