High Brow and The Shades recently performed [July 2013] for our Anniversary Party. Not only does this group have an incredible variety of music that is great to dance to, but they are truly entertaining and their energy is infectious. We heard nothing but great comments from our attendees and many will be following this group around the Twin Cities. The fact that this group has an emcee with a radio background really kept the pace moving and was a catalyst for crowd participation all night long. Needless to say, we recommend them with our highest regard — they are now our favorite group!

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!

We contracted the group High Brow and The Shades as our featured band for the Grand Opening of our farming business in Faribault (just south of the twin cities metro). The group was professional from the follow up on our bid request, to our needs for our event, to their punctual equipment set up, and to their outstanding performance for our attendees. They also had top of the line equipment to showcase their talent. We heard a lot of great compliments from our attendees who were a variety of people/ages in attendance and this group had something for everyone! We recommend this group with our highest regard!

We do have the best known groups in the Cities here at Canterbury Park during our racing season. We have between 8,000-10,000 people in attendance. This was our second year with High Brow and the Shades due to the compliments from our fans. They are professionals that are fun to work with and they know how to entertain a crowd. We look forward to working with them again.
