tellico at your wedding

Tellico has many years of experience also appearing as an Asheville-based wedding and event band. Tellico's sound perfectly complements the mountain setting of area events while still appealing to a wide audience and varying musical tastes.  For wedding and event appearances, Tellico includes traditional bluegrass and old-time material in with their own original songs, all with their unique Appalachiacana sound, providing an excellent soundtrack for your unique wedding or event.  Tellico also offers additional services with drums, pedal steel, lap steel, and electric guitar to extend even further in the Americana vein with country, blues and swing.

testimonials

"As a wedding officiant, I have lots of experience with wedding musicians and I was quite impressed with Tellico's level of talent and professionalism. They really have that authentic bluegrass sound dialed in, plus the sound quality, levels, and dynamics were spot on. I will certainly be recommending them to all of my clients who are looking for some top-notch mountain music!"
     --Philip Lingle, Asheville Marriages, October 2015

"So excited to have you as part of our day -- been hearing you so much on Backporch Music program on WUNC -- everytime I'm like "that's our band!!"
     --Hallie, October 2015

"Thank you and the rest of the band for a wonderful, wonderful wedding.  Our guests were raving about you!!  I have never heard so many compliments.  We appreciated all your hard work with the set list and the organization! Thanks for making it a fun, memorable wedding, and for being such troopers with the rain.  We could not have done it without you.  And the cover you did of our first song I think is even better than the original.  I will cherish it always."

"I suppose all musicians love making music. But I doubt you will find a group more enthusiastic about the total experience than Tellico. We invited them for a special holiday celebration and our guests were truly wowed by the music - but beyond that, the band was terrific to work with on the front end and even figured out a way to keep the party going in a downpour. It was a great experience for our family and guests - and Anya, Stig, Jed and Aaron are welcome back, anytime."
