About Gussied

Hey there,

If you're on the hunt for a live band that is fun, friendly and delightfully different then look no further.

We're music geeks who've absorbed the sounds of bluegrass, rock n' roll and timeless classics. We have a penchant for music you would imagine hearing in a smoky saloon or cocktail bar, but we realize what decade it is. Our music has an old-time soul with a modern belly.

Our clients say things like "Holy cow! I can't believe you just played Old Crow Medicine Show and Outkast in the same set!" and our personal favorite, "Are you all related?"

To us, that is the utmost compliment. We like to think of ourselves as musical siblings collaborating to make each wedding an experience. We take pride in being able to deliver something slightly unexpected and see your guests go nuts on the dance floor. We like to walk away from each gig with a room full of new best friends.

Instead of trying to duplicate a song you've heard on the radio, we "gussy it up" into our own style.

We play farms, barns, wineries, swanky lofts, country clubs and everything in between - even summer camps! We also play destination weddings, festivals, and private events.

No party is too small or too big. We have a professional sound team and various music packages to suit your needs.

Thanks for visiting our page. If you have any questions, feel free to fire away.

XO,

Gussied

    Best wedding band ever

    We were so happy we picked Gussied to play at our wedding. If you want talented musicians to play real music at your wedding, they are the band for you. From day one they were amazing to work with, happy to accommodate all of our special requests, and exceeded our expectations in every way. We constantly hear from our friends and family what a great wedding band we had, some people said it even felt like a personal concert! Thank you Gussied for making our special day so perfect.

    My husband and I hired Gussied to play at our wedding on June 27th, 2015. Initially, we were worried that our friends and family wouldn't dance to a bluegrass-folk style band playing pop covers, but we had a farm wedding, and wanted a live band with great reviews that would fit the venue. We talked on the phone with Liz and she was very helpful and professional. She assured us that Gussied would get everyone on the dance floor - and she was right! We also hired a ceremony musician through Gussied to play keyboard so my grandfather could sing during our ceremony. The musician even arrived early so he could run through the music with my grandfather. For our cocktail hour, Gussied made a playlist based on songs and bands we liked. Gussied also coordinated behind my back with my parents so that my father could perform a song he wrote for his father of the bride speech. My mom was very happy with the way Gussied helped her set it up. Thanks so much, Gussied! If you are even thinking about hiring Gussied - you should! You won't regret it!

    I have hired Gussied to do a large outdoor corporate picnic, and then we hired the band to travel to Kansas City and play for my daughter's wedding reception. They were reasonably priced considering they all had to travel to KC, and their housing arrangement requests were very reasonable. They are exceedingly flexible in tailoring their music to your needs. They are throughly professional, even when confronted with out of the ordinary requests or circumstances. Best of all, they play the kind of music that all ages like to listen to, but songs that young people know, love, and want to dance to. They have there sets designed to match your reception, with the music gradually building up to the kind of fun dance music one would want to end the night on. When my daughter told me she was getting married, I gave her a budget for everything except the band. I told her that the band was on me, and I hired Gussied.
