Full Cord started as a project between band members Todd Kirchner, Eric Langejans, Paul Kirchner, and Nate Roberts. All seasoned musicians, they wanted to build a musically diverse band using traditional bluegrass instruments.

The band has an extraordinary song base, with songs ranging from traditional country and bluegrass to modern pop hits, big band era tunes and everything in between (and we do mean everything!). With hundreds of songs in their repertoire, they never run out of songs to choose from.

The band’s performances are done using a single microphone traditionally seen on the Grand Ole Opry. Instrument solos and vocal parts are all choreographed around the single microphone bringing an old-timey feel to their performance.

The band is based in West Michigan and has had the privilege of performing all over the state, from private parties and events to breweries, barns and bluegrass festivals.

Full Cord has over 80 years of combined musical experience and is using their extraordinary talent to break the bluegrass stereotype and breath new life into it. They are introducing new styles and arrangements that keep everyone wanting more.
