About Astrograss

Jordan Shapiro


We have been performing as a band since 2003, when Jordan Shapiro formed the band with some close musician friends in Brooklyn, NY. Since then, the band has performed at hundreds and hundreds of concerts, weddings, festivals, parties, kids birthday parties, and various other kinds of family oriented events. We have an extensive songlist of over 300 songs, drawing from all styles of music, including traditional folk/bluegrass, as well as classic rock, pop, jazz and country. The band has also released 3 full length albums of original music, ranging from progressive bluegrass/newgrass instrumentals to goofy kids songs.

We have almost 20 years of experience as a band, and it shows with our level of professionalism. We have the proper sound equipment for any kind of event, and the song list to match. We have experience entertaining rooms of toddlers, bars/clubs full of millennials in NYC, and weddings. We provide a seamless band experience, in which we can manage all aspects of the music, including sound equipment, solo/small group performances, full band dance sets, and even DJ services. But for the most part, we just love connecting with a room full of music lovers who are looking for a band to keep them smiling and entertained for any amount of time.

    All of our guests commented that the music at our wedding was lovely and really tied the whole event together. Our venue did not allow DJ's or amplified sound and Astrograss had no problem playing everything acoustically. They were really great communicating before our event. They learned 5 songs at our request and let us pick plenty others for them to play from their extensive repertoire. They even coordinated with our friend (who is a singer) who wanted to sing something for us which ended up being one of the highlights of the night.

  • Most Amazing Band for Our Wedding
