Considering a band for your wedding, gala, private party, corporate occasion? Think outside the box. Instead of the typical party function band, why not hire a country band?
A great country band can make your special event, wedding reception, festival, or corporate party a raging success! You can get people out on the dance floor with two-step tunes or enjoy a more laid-back vibe with a softer setlist or an acoustic set up. Whichever you prefer, you can’t go wrong if you hire a country band!

If you are interested in hiring any of these country bands or others, TSE Entertainment works with several bands and is able to book any original country band you are wanting at your next event or show. However, if an original country band isn’t what you are looking for there are other options as well.
If there one well-known artist that would fit the bill best? If you have a particular, popular band in mind TSE Entertainment can book any artist for you, as well as country tribute bands. Some of our country tribute bands include: George Strait, Shania Twain, Kenny Chesney, and many more!
Tribute bands exclusively perform songs by the one specific band they are paying tribute to, usually mimicking the band’s appearance, sound, and style. They have taken a leap in popularity over the past 10 years and are a more affordable route to getting your favorite band at your next event, however, keep in mind that your request will be limited.
Do you want your guest or customers to be able to request songs? While most country bands can do a lot of covers, you may consider a country band that specializes in performing popular songs from various country artists you hear on the radio. Country cover bands are known for playing all of the popular crowd pleasers, either in original style or with their own twist on the hit songs. This is the best type of country band to hire if you are anticipating a lot of song requests for various country artists. Check out our great country cover bands, Four Barrel Ramblers and Todd Freeman & Bullet Proof Band. Visit here to inquire about booking a country cover band for your next event!
Hiring the right country band can be challenging, but not with TSE Entertainment! Here are great tips to follow before you hire a country band for your next special event:
