About Astrograss

Astrograss is the northeast's premier bluegrass band for private parties, weddings, corporate functions, and children's events. With our vast repertoire of bluegrass standards, traditional fiddle tunes, and recognizable cover songs done "Astrograss-style," we're sure to keep your feet stompin' for hours on end.

What separates Astrograss from other bluegrass bands is our ability to provide the perfect music to set the right mood for every part of a wedding, from the ceremony itself to the cocktail hour to the dinner and dance sets at the reception. We're your one-stop wedding band! You want to walk down the aisle to your favorite pop song? You want a Baroque string quartet piece for the recessional? You need 7-10 minutes of klezmer music for a Hora? You're from Kentucky and you want the whole second set of the reception to be all songs about Kentucky? You want your cousin to sing an oprah song with the band during the ceremony? No problem. We are prepared to handle any and all special requests; these are just a few examples of requests we've handled in the past. Astrograss typically learns 6-8 specially requested songs per wedding - more than any other band we know of, bluegrass or otherwise! And we ask you to pick out 20-30 songs from our 150+ song published songlist online. We'll make sure we play only the songs you want to hear. We can come in various sizes, (3-6 piece band), including a female vocalist. We bring all our own sound equipment and depending on the package, we can come with a dedicated sound engineer.

Based in Brooklyn, NY, Astrograss is comprised of: Jordan Shapiro (vocals, guitar), Dennis Lichtman (mandolin, vocals), Sarah Alden (fiddle, vocals), Jonah Bruno (banjo) and Tim Kiah (bass, vocals). Since its formation in 2003, the band has maintained a busy schedule of public gigs and private events. Astrograss is willing and able to travel for events.

    Awesome band and talent. My husband and I are very much into live
    music, and they were the perfect compliment to our wedding. From the
    beginning Jordan was super accommodating and communicative. They were
    able to play the additional requested songs (outside of their list)
    with ease for our procession. The remainder of the cocktail hour was
    lovely filled with a nice mix of Irish and folk music. I would have
    them at any of our other parties, affordable too!

    Astrograss played at our wedding and was truly a highlight of our special day! They were very accommodating to all of our requests. They travelled all the way to MA from NY and were able to work with our budget to make our dreams of live music at our wedding possible! They have an extensive list of songs to add to your playlist and were willing to learn any special requests we had! The dance floor was lively into the night and even our nieces and nephews came on the stage to help sing some kids songs! Overall, I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

    I was nervous booking them because I hadn't read any recent reviews, so I just wanted to come on here and say that they're awesome.

    My husband and MIL danced their first dance to The Dead, we walked down the aisle to Wilco, and danced our first dance to a track off Mermaid Avenue.

    If you're looking for a great folk/bluegrass band, book them.

    They'll learn a handful of requests just for you and each will sound like it's been part of their set list for years.
