If Pickled Okra's special brand of Americana music can be described with words, one might say "old-school, porch-settin', sing into a can-style bluegrass". If you ask them, they might call it "ham and cheese grass". Either way, their music is full of ideas borrowed from old time fiddle tunes, jazzy delta blues, pop, rock, reggae and funk as well, for a sound that is timeless yet modern in it's own quirky way. It's kind of like stepping back in time, but with indoor plumbing. This group, made up of a married couple and their ever cahnging cast of friendly banjo and guitar players, are characters in their own right and are undeniably charming, and undeniably entertaining. Not to mention pretty darn talented.

Pickled Okra played at our recent wedding Welcome Reception on July 25th, and it was one of the best decisions we made for the entire event! Working with them in the months leading up to the wedding was a breeze... they were always very quick to respond to emails, and we even got to see them play at one of our favorite local watering holes. When it came time for the event, they arrived with plenty of time to setup, and were playing as our first guests arrived. They could read the crowd very well, and by the end of the night, they had everyone dancing! They even let one of our cousins borrow a guitar and played along for a little tribute song! EVERYONE was raving about the music, even people who wouldn't call themselves bluegrass fans! They play such an eclectic mix of music but with their own flair, and they had everyone singing along. I would highly recommend hiring Pickled Okra for any event! We can't wait to see them again!

Besides marrying my husband, selecting Pickled Okra as our wedding band was the best decision and best use of our money. The wedding was a blast! Each member of the band is fun, entertaining, and incredibly talented. They are easy to work with and set an excellent vibe for the party. We had guests ranging in age from 6 months to 90 and everyone loved the band (everyone raved about Pickled Okra for months). They played traditional bluegrass as well as more modern covers with bluegrass twang. We need to have another event so we can hire them again! Honestly, we have zero regrets about hiring this band, they were the BEST!!!

I cannot say enough good things about having Pickled Okra as our wedding band! They were very professional, learned a new song for our wedding (which they nailed by the way, acapella, even!), they were friendly, heartfelt and simply wonderful to have as part of our wedding! We cannot recommend them highly enough. Oh, on that note, they have a diverse range of songs they play from Led Zeppelin to Stand By Me - so don't worry about it being a bluegrass-only band for your wedding guests. And they can read the crowd perfectly. - Jennifer & Matt, Cama Beach State Park, November 2013
