Please see our first review, as I think it describes us better than I could!
The No Name Stringband is a collective of Madison-area musicians who combine a broad understanding of traditional Appalachian old-time music with a slew of original acoustic compositions. The music ranges from fiddle-led, foot-stomping barn dances to slower, introspective classical-bluegrass numbers; it's a melding of old-time music with jazz and classical sensibilities. Our performances are easily tuned to the event - if we're playing a dance, we play loud and fast, but our classically trained fiddlers are just as comfortable performing string quartets.
NNSB has been warmly received at weddings, farm dinners, barn dances, bars, festival stages, house parties, neighborhood picnics, birthdays, and other unique events such as the Madison Children Museum's Adult Swim Night.
We are flexible! We can bring a big band, a small band, play acoustic or with a PA, play your cocktail hour or happily provide the main entertainment for the evening. If you want music for your ceremony, we can provide traditional classical music or learn 'your' song (as long as we can do it in our fashion!)
Hope to hear from you!

One of the best things about our wedding
I honestly can not say how happy we are that we went with the No Name String Band to play at our wedding. After checking them out at State Line Distillery, my wife and I knew that we needed them to play our wedding. They played during the ceremony, the cocktail hour, made a jazz playlist for dinner, and then played the reception. They learned songs for the ceremony, and were perfect. I honestly can not recommend them enough. They called square dances during our reception and literally half of those in attendance participated, the whole night was a blast.Sent on 12/06/2018

The No Name Stringband was a delight and highlight at our wedding. Their music was perfect for guests of all ages to dance to, and the band was kind enough to prepare some songs at our request (and patient enough to field questions along the way). Actually one song was for our 'first dance'--we messed up our choreography and couldn't figure out how to end! The band--totally professional--seamlessly figured this out and kept playing until we figured out our steps. This group sounds great, and they are good people. You can't go wrong.Sent on 04/13/2017

Thank you, The No Name Stringband!!! We were over the moon to have them as our wedding band! From the very start, they were friendly and laid back - and also completely reliable and fast on response time. The music was amazing for both the ceremony and reception! I don't think there could have been a more perfect band for our barn wedding! We had guests coming up to us nonstop, asking about who are awesome band was. So now you all know - they are called The No Name Stringband! And they should be playing at your wedding.Sent on 11/05/2014
