“We recently had High Brow and The Shades perform at our large wedding. They took our event up to another level!!! They played our requests and made sure that they played something for everyone. They were professional from beginning to end. We had so many wonderful comments from our guests that we highly recommend this group for your wedding or event—you will be amazed!”


“High Brow and The Shades performed for our holiday party this past January, 2013. This group really knows how to make a holiday party a success. We had so many great compliments on this group’s performance, song selection and audience interaction that we are definitely going to have them back next year. This group comes with our highest recommendation!”

“We have booked High Brow and the Shades for our “On the Road Again” craft/auto show for the past 3 years. They are the favorite of our attendees. We have had many of the top groups in the twin cities perform for us and we rate High Brow and the Shades among the best we have heard or worked with!”

High Brow and the Shades knocked it out of the park at our wedding this past September. This is a professional group of entertainers. They engaged our guests throughout the entire performance! We received several comments like: “This was the best wedding dance we have ever attended!” It just doesn’t get any better than that. We recommend them highly!

We recently contracted High Brow and The Shades for our wedding at the Crown Plaza in St. Paul. This group took our attendees by storm! They were professional from set to take down and did everything possible to make our event a tremendous success. We could not have been more pleased.
