Amazing band (best investment we made in our wedding)

Hi everyone! We hired the Blue Breeze Band after desperately searching for a non-cheesy group to play at our wedding. We wanted a band that would have its own style it excelled at (not one that would play everything from Van Morrison to Journey to Bon Jovi to Beyonce, though we love all those guys) and were searching in the Motown/R&B/Soul genre which we love. We came across the BBB and one review in particular, from a groom whose sole wedding-related duty was to find the band - and after too many whiskeys and renditions of Wonderful Tonight he happened to find these guys. He said to "do yourself a solid" and hire the BBB, so we did! Just read these guys' bios on their website. Impressive! They have lots of clips too, but I have to say they sound even better in person. Perfect in fact. They even learned Cee Lo's "Forget" You for our wedding and even that, not part of their standard repertoire, was perfect. We had so much fun. They could really read the crowd and play the right thing for getting people going. Our guests were out there on the dance floor all night, even people we never would've expected to dance! At the end of the night they got literally every last person on the floor for "Shout" which is my husband's favorite song for a wedding :)

As far as the business side of things goes, it was easy to communicate with Harold Wherry, the band leader, and he proactively asked lots of questions to make sure we were prepared and that everything would go smoothly on the day. Which it did. The band's fees are also very reasonable compared to other wedding bands, which in my opinion aren't nearly as talented or as fun.

Blue Breeze MADE our anniversay party!

Besides providing great music for our party, Blue Breeze became part of the party and gave us and our guests a personal experience that got everyone involved and having fun. Harold was exceptionally attentive to both the pre-party arrangements and keeping the flow and energy going throughout the party. If you want a great time and not have to worry about a single detail, just book this band and let Harold and the Blue Band do the rest. Then enjoy the party with your guests!

The Best Wedding Band

I would highly recommend the Blue Breeze Band to anyone looking to hire a band for their wedding reception or event. We had high hopes for our wedding reception and they were able to exceed our expectations. They were a huge part of making our wedding the memorable night it was for all who attended. Everyone commented on how much fun the band was and how they were the best wedding band they had seen. Harold Wherry is a member and the manager of the Blue Breeze Band. He was extremely reliable, organized, easily reached and made sure the band was not a concern as our wedding day arrived. If you are still searching for a great group to perform at your wedding or event, look no further than the Blue Breeze Band.

Absolutely Amazing Band!

The Blue Breeze Band was absolutely sensational! They exceeded every expectation I had. Harold & Co. were pleasant and easy to work with prior to the wedding. They even learned a new song to play for our first dance. Everyone at our wedding was raving about how amazing the band was. Hiring the Blue Breeze Band was the best decision we made.

was awesome at my wedding in San Diego!

I hired this band to play at my wedding and I would hire them again in an instant for another event. They did a great job. They were professional, easy to work with and accommodating. They arrived early and was all set up on time and the music they played was great! I was very impressed with their singing skills. They really blew me away and made my wedding so much more special. All my guests were very impressed with the band and I can brag that my wedding was the best compared to my other friends' weddings when it comes to entertainment.

Testimonials

My husband and I love live music and R&B/Blues so when we heard the Blue Breeze Band in Los Angeles we loved the music, but wondered if they would be able to get people on the dance floor on the big day. We were so pleased that the dance floor was PACKED the entire reception. At some weddings you start to lose people at the end of the night, but Harold and the other members of the band kept every guest there till the end. Everyone was disappointed that it was over! Everyone I spoke to raved about the band, and said they were the best part of the entire evening. Their music really appeals to every demographic- our twenty-something friends were living it up with our seventy year old grandparents! Harold was so professional during the entire process, and kept in contact with me during the year of planning. It was so important to us to have a band, and although typically that would have been a bit out of our budget, the Blue Breeze Band is surprisingly affordable. Contact Harold and he will send you a video of their performances. We couldn't be happier with our choice and highly recommend the Blue Breeze Band for your wedding!

– Derek & Ashley

This band is awesome! The music was great and I was surprised how good the singing was. All our friends were impressed with the band. They arrived on time and worked with me on the flow of the event. My wedding was an Asian wedding and so it's quite different than regular wedding receptions. They were great with accommodating me with my requests. I would love to have them again for a future event - maybe a wedding anniversary some day. What I also loved was having the saxophone guy play next to us while we were dancing. We weren't expecting that and it was a nice surprise. Pretty much we had a bad ass band! You will be very happy with going with these guys.

We were so lucky to have found this band. The band leader Harold is
incredibly professional and will respond immediately with any questions.
They made our ceremony and reception so much fun, people who never
dance were dancing and everyone partied right until the last dance.

We loved them so much that we have booked them for another
organizations' event that we are a part of and can't wait to see them
again.

We would highly recommend this band!

To whom it may concern:

Blue Breeze performed on May 16th, 2008 for my Senior Citizen Program.

During this time the band was very punctual, energetic, a crowd mover and best of all a BIG hit!

Blue Breeze was a big asset to our program on this day. They cheered up all our seniors and made them dance like they never knew they could. And willing to play any request the seniors wanted. In addition, Blue Breeze was fun and professional in performing.

Blue Breeze is highly recommended on all our volunteers list of entertainment, in fact they are #1 to be exact. They will be forever remembered in our program and I highly recommend them for any future events or volunteer organizations.

The Blue Breeze Band was the PERFECT band for our event. They showed up 4 hours before the event just to make sure we were comfortable and everything was setup correctly. The band all wore tuxedos and looked sharp! Their music was incredible, they played both slow music and fast and upbeat. There could not have been a better band for our event. In addition all of their instruments looked nice and only added to the look of the night. Many thanks Blue Breeze Band!!!

Dear Harold,
I just wanted to give you a big "THANK YOU" for the great job you and the Blue Breeze Band did at my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary Party in Santa Clarita, on Saturday August 22nd 2009. The music was GREAT! My brother Jim who is a musician from the East Coast along with his friend who is music director at a California Community College also thought the Blue Breeze Band did a great job! In addition to playing well and playing great tunes, you guys were easy to work with, and everyone enjoyed the band member's personalities- friendliness and fun.

We feel fortunate that you were available for this special event and wish you the best! We highly recommend the BLUE BREEZE BAND!
Sincerly,

Dear Harold,
Andrew and I would like to sincerely thank you and the rest of the Blue Breeze Band for making our wedding a truly unforgettable event. You are all incredibly talented musicians who each lend your heart and soul to your performances. Your ability to switch between genres, as well as to accommodate the music for the ceremony and the reception was wonderful. The selections of classical and jazz music that you selected for the ceremony were simply elegant. We could not have asked for more. For the reception, you guys really know how to bring the house down. We had an absolute blast dancing the rest of the night away. Our guests are still talking about how much fun they had. In my opinion, that is the epitome of a successful soul performance! We really feel like you guys are part of the family and would gladly have you play at any of our future events.

We would recommend you to any person planning an event that involves music, no matter the celebration. Your talent, professionalism and general ability to make everyone have a great time are unmatched. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Best regards,
Katie & Andrew Brewer (Washington State)
