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 two married couples, all characters in their own right - is undeniably charming, and undeniably entertaining. Not to mention pretty darn talented.

We, and all of our guests, loved them! Even with it raining for our outdoor reception, they played on. Their energy is so good that people were dancing and partying in the rain most of the night. My favorite memeory is of them taking a break to sing my 8 year old niece's "favorite song ever," WITH her and her best friend. And they worte an arrangement of the song I've wanted for a first dance since I first saw Prince of Theives. The drizzle, flood lights, my love, and my dream song...it couldn't have been better this side of reality.

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

These guys are AMAZING!!!! They helped make our wedding such a memorable night. People were dancing on the floor before dinner was even served and there were smiles all around. They were also wonderful at being in contact before and after, which was so helpful during the stress of the big day.

Oh Pickled Okra! We hired the band for our wedding ceremony and it was probably one of the best decisions we made. They added that special vintage/romantic touch we hoped for. They have a HUGE list of great classics, current songs and their own medleys that bring a smile to your face. Guests had nothing but positive things to compliment the band. They put their own spin to each song and especially LOVED walking down the aisle to their version of Pachebel. Not only do they sound great, they look the part and you can tell they truly LOVE what they do. Our only regret is hiring them for only 1.5hrs! Thank you for making our dream wedding come true! Hire them!

Pickled Okra absolutely made our wedding unique and special! I had a great experience in professional dealings with them, and enjoyed getting to know them! All of our guests loved the bluegrass/folk feel.
They learned songs that were new specifically for our event. This made our event feel even more important. Prior to the event, Todd was attentive to all of our questions and desires. They met with me well prior to the event to discuss how everything worked, and I told them what my desires were as well! It was a natural fit for our wedding.
They were timely and even stayed long into the night for the folks having an extra good time!!
We can't wait to follow Pickled Okra at local venues!

Pickled Okra was the PERFECT choice for our wedding welcome BBQ. We could not have been happier with everything they did - they showed up early, played great music, were charming and fun to be around, and all of our guests absolutely loved them. I highly, highly recommend booking them for your next event, whatever it is!

"Pickled Okra is an AMAZING Band! They are a group of talented , Fun , entertaining and truly nice people! I had never heard of them before Sept. of 2012. While helping our daughter make plans for her upcoming wedding , I asked her what band she had chosen? Being in the music industry , I knew she would probably book a big name band. To my surprise the entertainment would be a band I'd NEVER heard of.....! My daughter assured me they were wonderful. The nite of the wedding I was introduced to the Band , they really dressed the part and I couldn't wait to hear them! Everyone was completely blown away at their talent and Huge variety of song choices! While trying to visit with family members and guests almost every conversation went to "WOW!!...they are awesome!" Its hard to explain how cool it is to hear *Led Zeppelin , *Pink Floyd and The *Grateful Dead preformed by these Bluegrass Masters! They are sooo FUN to watch and listen to! There is nothing too big or too crazy for PO to take on , they are fearless , and the result is by far one of the most entertaining Bands I've ever seen! Our daughters wedding was Beautiful and very special , and the music/entertainment was unforgettable! It doesn't matter if your 5 years old or 85 years old........ You will LOVE "Pickled Okra!!!

We got married at my in-laws' house in Chelan, Wash., doing most of the planning out of state. I contacted Pickled Okra, sight unseen, based on their videos and online reviews. From the getgo, they were responsive to my questions about scheduling, costs and equipment. The high degree of professional service continued right through the day of the wedding. They showed up right on time and followed our instructions on parking, setup, timing and all the other logistical details that go into moving that many vendors in and out of a small space in such a small time frame. I mention all these details because they become all-consuming on the days leading up to the event. But the real reason to hire Pickled Okra is the music. We had a motley crowd, not all bluegrass fans, and I'd bet every one of them complimented us on the music at one point or another. The group sounded fantastic and has a very long list of great tunes in their playbook. Any band that can pull off "No Woman No Cry" -- with a mandolin, at a wedding -- and leave the guests singing along at the end of the night is well-worth hiring.
