Entertaining! Energetic! Eclectic! The Wandering Bards perform a unique blend of music called "Americana-Gypsy Funk". Giving off a neo-Vaudevillian vibe, they'll make you laugh, sing and do any ol' crazy thang with their heady mix of Blue-eyed Blues, dark Gypsy grooves and foot-stompin' party tunes!

From New York City down to the Jersey Shore, The Wandering Bards have graced many-a venue stage (Crossroads, The Saint, Banjo Jim's) and including festivals such as The Black Potatoe and Union County Music Fest. They have also performed at private parties, cocktail hours and even libraries! They have been featured on the Internet radio channel HomeGrownRadioNJ.com.

Whats' New?
Here's what the press are saying about The Wandering Bards:

“The Wandering Bard's music lifts the spirit and gets it soaring…Their musical flair displays both instrumental virtuosity and percussive genius with surprising ease (along with some ridiculously catchy vocal harmonies)…This is tongue-in-cheek, Nic Cave meets Goran Bregovic meets The Pogues will make you'll feel like you're on a carnival carousel on a Saturday night.” - Rick Jamm, Jamsphere

Quotes:


“The sharp-dressing, gypsy-folk quintet fiddle and strum up a storm on amusingly proletarian subjects: chicken gristle, running out of Spam and their unquenchable will to have a good time! But don’t let all the gags mislead you — these guys are strong musicians, and their joy is infectious.”
— Tris McCall, Star Ledger

"The group's lineup and talents has certainly led the Bards to a unique sound that mixes in Folk, Reggae, Rock, Celtic and Eastern-European-style musical touches."
- Eric Niersredt, The Westfield Leader

Cody Blevins of Vents Magazine says, "Lulling strings, funked out bass lines staying deep in the pocket, and a carnival-esque amalgam of jesters and seriously talented players hoping to pied piper some listeners into the uproar."
