    The best in the business

    We hired Garuda Blue for our wedding, and they were absolutely phenomenal. They are beyond communicative, extremely professional and flexible, and they are incredible musicians who will make your wedding truly memorable. I’m a trained jazz musician myself, and these guys truly know their stuff. They played all the hits and had the crowd dancing nonstop.

    We had guests begging the band to play more songs — honestly, book Garuda Blue. You will not regret it, and you’ll have a blast. They are worth every penny and more.

    A musician's band

    Wow, Garuda Blue blew it out of the park at our wedding. This is no ordinary band; it is a musician's band. All the members of Garuda Blue are top notch jazz musicians and it shows in their playing. I never thought that a wedding band can be this good since I always assume that musicians of their caliber are too artsy and advanced to do weddings. Well, I was wrong! Garuda Blue is a HIDDEN GEM; you won't find anyone better out there. No need to look anywhere else, just book them already!

    Total pros

    Abe and his crew are terrific!

    We hired them for dance music at the end of an auction event. Dinner service was slow after the presentation finished, so we asked them to play easy back-ground music that we had not originally asked for. They were able to easily go with the flow and come up with several numbers that fit the mood perfectly, before switching over to dance music.
