Incredible Experience!

We were lucky enough to see the Bluewater Kings Band during one of their showcases which helped us solidify our choice to use them. The day of our wedding, they were absolutely fantastic. We started off with a string quartet for the ceremony, followed by a jazz trio for our cocktail hour, and had the 9 piece band for the reception. They absolutely blew the house down! They wowed the crowd and kept the energy going all night. We keep getting comments from our friends and family about how amazing they were!
They did an especially good job listening to how people responded to what they were playing and making adjustments on the fly. Highly recommend them!

The very BEST band you could possibly ask for. Right from the beginning Tasha was extremely kind, helpful and super excited for us and our wedding. Even meeting her she was so sweet and amazing! And the band members were so friendly and nice. I had not seen this band live prior to hiring them but had read up on all the reviews and talked to people who had hired them before. Wow did they exceed my expectations and I truly truly mean it, they were AWESOME. The music selections were exactly what we wanted and our guests had a BLAST dancing all night long. There was never an empty dance floor. They even went out of their way to make sure every name was pronounced right. I have never been so pleased with a wedding band in my life, they were soooo worth it. They even had amazing projection lights going which were outstanding. If you are considering hiring a band, this is the one. Our guests kept asking all night long who they were and complimenting us for hiring them. YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
