Wedding Bliss

Garuda Blue was the perfect choice for our son's wedding. He picked the band based on his own years as a musician and playing in bands. Talking with Abe, the band's leader, our son knew immediately that his choice of music, number of band members, length of sets, etc. would be respected. And, indeed honored they were. The band pleased all ages at the reception and provided the perfect tone for the entire party. If you need a band, stop here. Book them! They are in high demand. We feel lucky to have secured a top-notch, professional, and exceptionally talented group of musicians.

Garuda Blue is a great band

The Garuda Blue Band made our reception really fun. They are excellent musicians and know how to make events seem to flow naturally. They earned enthusiastic praise from the musicians and non-musicians, young and old, dancers and non-dancers among our guests. They were incredibly easy to work with as well. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Great sound and musical range

Garuda Blue played at my 60th birthday party at the Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley. They played light jazz outside on the patio, a jazz set on stage and then several hours of dance music ranging from the 60s to contemporary. I'm a singer and half of the audience were musicians. My wife and I sang a duet accompanied by them, as did two friends who had brought jazz arrangements to them to practice a few months before the event. Everyone loved the band. Abe and the group were a joy to work with. I can highly recommend Garuda Blue for your event.
