About The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn

The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn present an impressive repertoire including burning jazz, New Orleans swing, and catchy pop hits of the 1920's & 30's. They blend nostalgic blues favorites, gritty 1950s R&B, Dixieland, high energy dance floor-packing jump blues, rockabilly, plus a bit of vintage country western for truly one-of-a-kind entertainment. Billy Nemec's acoustic guitar & striking vocals soar in front of the harmonic gentleman band of washboard percussion, upright bass, trumpet, and saxophone. We work closely with our clients and couples to make sure every party is incredibly unique and memorable for friends and family, and downright fun for you!

The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn play weddings, events, and festivals all over New York City and the East Coast. Highlights include headlining Lisa Loeb's nuptials in New York City, playing with Bette Midler, and opening for Elvis Costello. At HBO's Boardwalk Empire Finale Parties they performed with Margot Bingham (Daughter Maitland) and Stephen DeRosa (Eddie Cantor). They've provided entertainment for Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Clients include Bergdorf Goodman, NYC Wine and Food Festival, HBO, The Food Network, and The Village Voice Obie Awards. They were voted by studio audience and viewers as the "Subway Idol" contest winners on FOX's nationally syndicated "The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet." And the Vipers are one of New York Magazine Weddings "Ultimate New York Wedding" music choice, while couples have voted them as "best of" in the knot.

    The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn played our wedding in September 2018. We can't recommend them highly enough. Chris was very responsive and flexible in terms of accommodating a couple of special requests. The band played a wonderful mix of jazz, swing, and vintage country. Our guests raved.

    Set such a good vibe during our reception drinks :) Very talented bunch of guys!!! Everyone commented on how good the music was- it wasn’t too over powering that you were having to raise voice while speaking, it was the perfect music which created the most amazing atmosphere at our wedding! 100% recommend! Thank you guys so much! X
