About Us:

Hard Bargain performs in the Lehigh Valley and beyond! If you can't dance to it, we don't play it!  Our most popular venues are bars, nightclubs, weddings, theaters, private parties...  if you want music at it, we will play there!  We are also available as an acoustic trio, for smaller events.
