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!

We had the Blue Vipers of Brooklyn at our June 2nd 2018 wedding- first off.. we loved them; my husband knew very quickly that they would be the band for us, we listened to their spotify during the year before our wedding in anticipation for them! I received so many compliments from guests of my wedding that loved their sound and style. The band got everyone dancing!Sent on 06/15/2018

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
