Liquid Blue is awesome to work with an such a talented and fun band! Can't wait to use them again for future events!
This is the second time I've booked Liquid Blue for our banquet. Our attendees danced the night away and were talking about how great the band was the next day. I would highly recommend Liquid Blue to any event planner!
i listen to many bands for my event before i pick one, none came close to Liquid Blue, Great job guys
Liquid Blue just entertained for the LAYC for the second year in a row. They are so talented and truly make for a super fun evening. We look forward to rocking out with them again in the future.
Liquid Blue did an amazing job at our 9th Annual Rhythm on the Range at Spring Creek Golf &CC. All 1900 members and guests were so impressed with their performance. Highly recommend this incredible band for your next event.
This is the second time in two years that we've had the pleasure of Liquid Blue's no-break, non-stop 4-hours of rhythmic sounds and unbridled energy in New Orleans. This entertaining, high-energy band has music for all ages and do a fantastic job of layering multiple genres of songs into fun, energetic and musically profound medleys.
Nikki makes the business side of hiring Liquid Blue easy (no need to remove green M&M's in their contract). The band does a great job of accommodating requests during their show and are a pleasure to deal with.
Liquid Blue Rocked it Again, thanks guys! We're looking forward to having y'all to NOLA again soon.
Liquid Blue played at our fundraiser and was amazing! They were energetic, fed off the crowd, and super talented! Everyone was dancing and having a great time! Nikki was very professional and flexible when planning the event. We loved them and want them back next year!
Liquid Blue was totally amazing! They made the wedding complete, and all our guests were raving how they were the best band they've seen at a wedding. They were so great to work with during planning and the wide range in their playing abilities / songs made all our requests fulfilled. Liquid Blue was one of the highlights, if not number one of our wedding!
Liquid Blue played our daughter's wedding and we knew what to expect, as we test drove them at a local hotel. Our guests, however, were blown away! Their set list is vast and they played everything we asked of them and more. The lighting, the interchangeable dancers/singers, the horns - awesome. Every member was a pro. We have hired other cover bands for corporate events over the years, and Liquid Blue is the most diverse of them all. They listened to us and made my family feel very special and also aided in keeping the festivities moving along with announcements and flexibility to their typical program. It was a wonderful all around experience, and the band leader, Nikki Green, and her sidekick Perry, were as good as you will find. I would hire them again in a moment. If you are looking for a high energy dance party, Liquid Blue is your band. You will not be disappointed.
Liquid Blue is THE only band to hire!! They are amazing. We will use them for every party we ever have!!
We had Liquid Blue for our summer wedding this past July at the Broadway Pier. My wife and I were blown away by the outcome. Fantastic doesn't begin to describe them. The caliber of their group is top notch. Everyone one was dancing, and they didn't take any breaks because they were so into the crowd. Everything from planning ahead of time, to learning our first dance, to rocking it the day of was above professional. Don't settle for 2nd tier wedding bands.
I highly recommend them and can't say enough good things about them. Can't wait to hire them again.
This past May 29th, we had our daughters Graduation Party at the high end South Coast Winery Resort and Spa in Temecula California. We contracted Liquid Blue to be the Headliner. Before booking them, I did a fairly extensive search to find the best band out there that could deliver a Knockout performance. I was surprised at how many great bands are out there to choose from. I quickly was able to narrow it down from 100 bands to 20 bands and then 7 bands and finally 3 bands. After reading the reviews and calling many people, I decided to go with Liquid Blue. I have to admit, I was still skeptical because the words that people used to describe them were: AMAZING, AWESOME, INCREDIBLE, MIND BLOWING, OVER THE TOP, BEST EVER, ALL TIME FAVORITE, and OFF THE CHART!!!
I thought, there is no way that a band can be THAT good and leave such a trail of AWE STRUCK fans time and time again wherever they play. Boy was I in for a treat with the addition of my own choice of words to add to the list above. We had ........."THE EVENT OF A LIFETIME". WOW.......WOW.....WOW.......is what I kept on hearing the minute they stepped on stage with their 11 piece band, including a horn section, and BLEW EVERYONE AWAY with their Earth Wind and Fire medley accompanied by a spectacular light show that brought ALL 400 guests to their feet. The huge LED lit dance floor was packed the entire night.
There really aren't words that can truly describe the EXPERIENCE we all had that night as we witnessed the ULTIMATE CONCERT!!!!! Every single person that attended, young and old, had a FANTASTIC time. It was a TWO HOUR NON STOP DANCE JUGGERNAUT. There was such a great variety of hit songs from different artists and genres. The thing that impressed me the most was how RIDICULOUSLY GOOD they were. Seriously, I had to watch them real close to see if they were lip syncing, they were THAT good. When they kicked into the song Jump by Van Halen, the place EXPLODED. I kid you not, everyone thought David Lee Roth was on stage.
I really could go on and on with more words but if you are as picky as I am in finding the PERFECT band to make EVERYONE happy, you can listen to and hear some pretty UNBELIEVABLE reviews or you can go and SEE Liquid Blue with your own eyes. I think instead of being called Liquid Blue, they should go by the name "LIQUID GOLD".
Believe me, they were WELL WORTH the money I paid them!
What as fantastic band. Not just great musicians but great entertainers. They played at my daughters wedding and had everyone dancing all night long. Nikki is very professional and on top of all the details. I highly recommend them and can't say enough good things about them.
We had Liquid Blue perform at our high school's Prom at the House of Blues in San Diego. (May 21 2016). They were amazing! Played a variety of songs from different decades. My students actually picked the playlist from the 670 songs that they can sing. The dancers/singers were great- You could tell that they practice and rehearse a lot and come prepared to put on an amazing show. They really exceeded our expectations - our 500 students that attended were blown away. We will use them again. Tons of energy & fun and they sounded great.
Liquid Blue is a fantastic band! Not only do they rock the house, they are professional and very easy to work with. This is the second time I have hired them for a party and they truly had everyone up and dancing the entire time. So many compliments from my guests. They truly made it "The Party of the Year". Thank you!
Liquid Blue is an absolutely outstanding band! They bring high energy from start to finish and will tailor their performance to any crowd. This year was our 2nd time bringing the band to New Orleans. Our company made 100 years and they rose to the occasion at our centennial welcome party celebration. Prior to the event, we discussed our audience demographics, theme/decoration colors and the music selection, including the must plays. They were extremely easy to work with which is important during the busy planning process. Our crowd stood on the dance floor the entire night. Without further ado, I’m pleased to say the band exceeded our expectations.
This is band is Awesome. You will not be sorry. They have performed at Eldorado Casino twice and we cannot wait to have them back. They kept the crowd dancing until the end of the night. You will not be disappointed.
Loved having Aqua Blue at our venue for St. Patrick's Day. They played great music that really got the crowd going. I would definitely recommend Liquid Blue Band or Aqua Blue to anyone looking for a great cover band for their party!
After researching every wedding band in So-Cal, there was only one band that stood out from the rest. Believe it or not, Liquid Blue’s amazing promo video does not do the band justice after seeing them perform live after a San Diego Padres game. And when we first messaged the band regarding a possible wedding performance, it was one minute later that my cell phone rang from Scott Stephens! What an extremely personable point-of-contact for the band Scott is, who also doubles as the singer! Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would be able to have such a band at our wedding. They performed the whole spectrum of songs to meet our guests’ ages…from Dion of the 50s, to the Supremes, Cheap Trick, Madonna, Outkast and Lady Gaga! Liquid Blue is not just a cover band; the band just recently held the #3 spot on the Billboard Charts for one of their own songs, of which there are many!
My most memorable moment from the night was slow dancing with my husband to Peter Gabriel’s ‘In Your Eyes.’ Scott Stephens has the ability to replicate any artists’ voice, such as Peter Gabriel and Louis Armstrong (‘What a Wonderful World’). The guitarist even came off the stage into the grove of dancing guests to shred! At another point in the night I looked up to find my photographer up on stage smack in the middle of the band, rocking out and capturing the fun festivities close-up. And lets not forget the ladies…these three beauties sang and danced the night away, smiling the whole while, which made our night seem all the more welcoming and special. My guests were trying to mimic their choreographed dance moves all night long. And any girl that can outperform the real AC/DC with ‘Shook Me All Night Long’ deserves a round of applause! The funniest moment of the reception came when the band performed Van Halen and my bridal party did David Lee Roth-style scissor kicks! Such is the captivating dynamism of Liquid Blue with its audience.
I am eternally grateful for Liquid Blue. They performed slow songs during dinner, and upped the energy level directly following, transforming the venue to just what we wanted, a memorable, festive evening amongst friends and family. The night would not have been the same without them. Incredibly easy going, GOOD people, who came equipped with their own MC for the wedding and even sound equipment! I highly suggest allowing them to dress in their normal band attire and be themselves…they will put on a grand performance and you will have nothing to worry about. Liquid Blue is kind, giving, and talented, and they come with our highest recommendation and accolades.
