Bitsyland Band made our community come alive with toe tapping, knee slapping and old time music. Everyone was thoroughly immersed in the music and banter of the band. We were able to forget our aches and pains and have plain old good fun! The variety of instruments, jeans and boots all fit in the theme and added to the total performance. We will invite this group back again!

It is always a pleasure to have the Bitsyland Band here at St. George Village. The music is very upbeat and I saw a lot of toe tapping, smiles and residents singing along with you. Some of the songs they weren't familiar with, I was, so I was singing along on those! Your band consists of very talented musicians and great harmony with the singers. We will definitely schedule another concert!

I heard Bitsyland play at the Sandy Springs Heritage Farmer's Market. They had such a great vibe and my toddler couldn't stop dancing to their music. I contacted Edwin Hall to see if they could play for a grand opening celebration for my business, Peachtree Hearing. Edwin was so accommodating and made the planning very easy. The day of our party, Bitsyland played fantastic music and interacted with our guests. They encouraged and indulged our "tiny dancers" and we so appreciate how wonderful and family friendly they were! Everyone had a fabulous time and is still raving about the band! We are so thrilled with their performance and very happy to have featured them at our party.
