Great sounds...will be bringing them back to our community
Response from The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn:
Thank you so much for inviting us back again this year to be a part of your celebrations! Can't wait till next year!
The Blue Vipers
They did so well and we requested them to change up their music style and they were so accommodating! They play EXACTLY what we are looking for and come with a smile everytime!!
Band was prompt, professional, and helped make my event special for all. Would highly recommend booking them for your next party. Wish I had them another 30 mins as people just started dancing about 1 1/2 hours into their 2 hour set and we really would have loved to keep them later into the evening.
Response from The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn:
We had such a good time playing for you guys. Thanks so much.
The Blue Vipers were great - exactly what our client was seeking for a fun, outdoor Fat Tuesday promotional event on the streets of NYC. They braved the cold weather with smiles and played a good variety of New Orleans style jazz, including a last minute client requested song. Very easy to work with and would definitely recommend/hire again! They literally had New Yorkers of all ages dancing in the streets.
What to Expect

Jason and Melody, United Nations
"Although they've been winning awards left and right and receiving accolades from music legends like Willie Nelson, since 2007, the Blue Vipers have the kind of stuff that stardom is defined by. The group's percolating soup of swing, New Orleans jazz, vintage jazz, and country is not only timeless but actually revolutionary in a sense; to a younger generation this will be seen as new, freshly scrubbed." LESLIE CONNORS, JAZZTIMES Feb. 2011
"There are old souls in the young bodies of the Blue Vipers of Brooklyn. They play the best kind of roots music, one that explores the various sounds that turned on the youth in pre-and-post WWII America. Unifying it all is the band's dazzling jazz chops." ROBERT SUTTON, JAZZCORNER Feb. 2011

Greetings Chris...and thank you! We returned from our honeymoon a short while ago and are still reeling in the energy of our wedding. The day was just exquisite; and the music...the music was outstanding! We are grateful for many things--the perfect weather, a loving community, and just as much for a soundtrack that we will always remember. Many of our family/friends are in the Brooklyn area, and you will definitely see them at future gigs; and you will surely see us very soon! And a final thank you for Prince. Your repertory is truly boundless...from Louis Armstrong to Prince, it was the best day of our lives. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Just wanted to thank you for the lovely performances on Friday and Saturday. The men's team really were impressed. It's the first time they've ever complimented any band that I've booked!
BERGDORFF GOODMAN Cannon Hodge Assistant Manager, Special Events
This band was the hit of our Inauguration Day party! We held the party at our home, and had families come after school. The band arrived early, allowing time to set up. They were professional in all transactions. They engaged the kids at the party in such a friendly and relaxed way! They had no problem keeping up enthusiastic and diverse music for three straight hours. The parents have been raving about their music and charm since. What a lively sound and energy they bring to an event!
Andrea Scharff, Short Hills, NJ
Dear Chris, Billy, David, and Thom,
James and I are so grateful that you made the trip to CT to play at our wedding. We can't express how happy we were that you were there. It was so refreshing to hear your music during the night and our quests loved dancing and watching you perform. I'm so glad we stumbled into Chez Oskar last October...you really set the tone we were hoping for for our wedding day.
