    Incredible Performance at Company Event!

    We hired Garuda for our team cocktail event for 250 people following a two day strategy session. They played perfectly to the atmosphere and were only too happy to stay on longer than I had originally asked as the team didn't want it to end. The start was great jazz music that suited the event and by the end, they had the entire group up dancing. Thank you so much!

    Top-notch professionals, magical night

    We hired Garuda Blue for a wedding of around 100 guests at the St Francis Yacht Club. They played a cocktail hour from 5-6pm and then a set from 6-9pm, with a break in the middle for speeches. Overall, we had a magical night due in no small part to the incredible atmosphere that the live band created.

    Garuda Blue is incredibly talented and the level of musicianship is very high. All their numbers are extremely tight and well-rehearsed, creating a magical experience for all our guests. Multiple guests later told me that the band was the highlight of the night.

    They played a range of jazzy numbers for the sunset cocktail hour and then transitioned into swing for our first dances, after which they started mixing in some recognizable pop covers. The music was so good that the dance floor was packed from the moment the dancing started until the end of the night. They were also accommodating of a couple of pre-arranged song requests from us.

    Their price was very reasonable: for the 4 hours of playing we paid $3900 (structured as $1000 deposit upfront, the remaining $2900 after the night). With wedding-related purchases you often feel like you're paying 3x more just because it's for a wedding, but with Garuda Blue I felt like we got much more than our money's worth, and I would hire absolutely them again for other large events.

    If you're on the fence about getting a live band, just go for it. For $4K you'll get a magical atmosphere, very happy guests and an unforgettable night. Scrimp on decorations or desserts if you have to, because no other wedding spending will give you this much bang for your buck! And, if you're going to go for a live band, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better outfit than Garuda Blue.
