The Bluewater Kings Band is the function and events band that is not just your stock-standard "Wedding Band"
With regular showcase performances and a free demo CD you can see and hear us live before booking, then pick and choose the size and configuration of your dream band. As full-time professional young musicians, we focus squarely on getting your night up and jumping, but without the cheese.
Best of all, we are self-managed, so we are much less expensive than other bands in this quality bracket – your not paying any agents of middle-men! Pricing from $1500 - $5200, depending on band size.
We can play all the classics and 70s, 80s, 90s etc, and all the latest stuff too – from Frank Sinatra and Chuck Berry to Black Keys and Beyonce– and everything in between. Although our band was built from the ground up to fill the dance floor, we are trained jazz musicians and are just as happy to play cocktail music, acoustic covers, and all of those tunes that work best at the beginning of the night, before the party has really fired up! But when it is time to fill the dancefloor, this is when we really excel! We pride ourselves on knowing exactly the right songs to play at just the right time to pack your dancefloor. See our website for a selection of some of the many tunes that we can play, plus live recordings etc...
Our flexibility allows you to choose between 3 – 14 of our full time professional musicians who play with the likes of Alicia Keys, Prince, Gotye, Kanye West, Stevie Wonder, Beck & Tony Bennett, to name a few. At our regular showcase viewing nights you can check us out in action, and see for yourself why our young band already has an enviable reputation in the industry.
We hope to see you there to experience our vibe, our energy and speak to us about how we can make your big day absolutely sensational!!

The most incredible, talented, creative band!
We had an 8 piece band for our wedding, and the talent and value were incredible. The playlist was creative, unexpected yet exactly what we wanted. All of our special songs were rendered perfectly and our guests were dancing all night long. They even let my dad hop on stage and play a song with the band on bass, and it made him feel like a total rockstar!

Extremely professional throughout the entire process including the wedding and reception. Talented and great showmen and women. They kept the dance floor packed all night. Song selection was on point. May hire again for my wedding next year! (I’m the mother of the bride :) Excellent value for the money paid.Sent on 10/25/2018

I would highly recommend Blue Water Kings Band. I contacted the band about a year out from my wedding. I had read wonderful reviews about them one the Knot so I wanted to get to know them better. Jessica was my contact throughout the year and she actually was there on my day which was really wonderful!
A friend and I went to go see one of their showcases on a rainy Wednesday night in Chicago. It was great to see their range and what they are capable of. I made sure I booked them the very next morning.
We had a song that was special to us and they learned it so we could dance to during our first dance which was a very memorable moment for my husband and I. A friend of mine is in the orchestra for a lot of the musicals that come to Chicago and he knew a couple of the musicians that were playing at our wedding. I cannot say enough wonderful things. They are true musicians and a great value.
