We are The Bidwells
The Bidwells humbly follow in the footsteps of legendary partnerships like Cash/Carter, Gaye/Terrell, and King/Goffin, and hope to forge a path unique to their own personal life experiences. Informed by over a decade of professional work in the casino and wedding band business, The Bidwells are well-equipped to navigate the world of live musical entertainment. They've stripped away the synthesizers and click tracks to lay bare their voices and blend in harmony. Their chemistry alone is enough to enchant their audiences, but that's only where their dynamic begins. Utilizing the many years of professional experience the duo has acquired, the song selection comes from a wide range of genre and inspiration from generations past and present, including many of their own personal favorites. Songs like "Make You Feel My Love" by Bob Dylan (covered by Adele) and "Let It Be Me" by The Everly Brothers are sweetly sung, evoking an air of intimacy and tenderness, and may be promptly followed by more upbeat numbers like "Blame It On The Boogie" or Nat King Cole's "L.O.V.E.", complete with harmonica and kazoo solos galore! The duo's original work is prominently featured in their live shows, and will help to give the audience an even deeper look into the hearts and souls of these two enchanting songbirds.
Listening to The Bidwells is akin to the sound of two singers falling in love at a glance, conveying that feeling through the harmonized lyric of love; and the audience feels like they're the matchmakers.
“We love what we do, and we love to duet.”
