    A very very good band!

    These guys were not only great to work with in the preparations surrounding our wedding, they sounded just great at the event. Song after song of high quality music making, and even in a room of professional musicians, everyone had only high compliments for The Blue Vipers. Highly recommended.

    They were MAGIC!

    These musicians were pure magic--setting the tone for our Friday night welcome dinner with class, fun, joy and talent! So many of the guests came up to me and said what a magical night it was and what an amazing band we had. They learned a song for my 94-year-old grandmother, and when I brought her to the dance floor to be serenaded by the band, she glided across the floor grabbing five different men to dance with from the crowd! I've never seen her happier and the music transported her to her days on the dance floor as a young girl. It might be my favorite moment of my whole wedding and we could never have done it without the Blue Vipers of Brooklyn! If you're looking for something special, timeless and a little different for your event, you simply cannot go wrong with The Blue Vipers. I cannot wait to find another way to work with them again! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Super talented & amazing value

    The Blue Vipers are so talented, and really made our intimate wedding so special. We went to see them in Jersey City, at their regular Thursday night gig, and they were everything we wanted - excellent musicians, playing relaxed and fun 20's and 30's inspired music. We hired them for our 5 hour wedding at Frankie's 457, Memorial Day weekend, and they were troopers about an unplanned downpour, so nice and accommodating throughout the evening, and just a pleasure to set listen to as a background to our day. We can't recommend them highly enough!

    Amazing and classy, different than what you’d typically hear at a wedding

    The blue vipers of Brooklyn were exactly what we wanted for our wedding! Our guests loved them and the entire vibe of our wedding thanks to them, it was classy and laid back, no cheesy wedding music that you hear at most weddings. Everyone loved them!

    Memorable Musicians!

    My husband and I hired the Blue Vipers to play at our cocktail hour of our wedding at the Weylin on May 18th. We had never heard them live but fell in love with the online videos. We were so pleased that they sounded just as perfect LIVE as they did on their videos and offered a unique and fun vibe to our cocktail hour. I had a couple of friends recognize them from playing around NYC which was incredibly fun to have such noteworthy musicians play for us AND my cousin who has played in bands in NYC for over 30 years reached out the next day to specifically ask about the VIPERS as he was so impressed with their style and performance. The Blue Vipers are a sure thing! We are so thrilled that we had them there on our special day.

    The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn and super talented, professional, unique and fun! Exactly what I wanted for our wedding. They have an eclectic repertoire with a vintage swing/jazz/blue vibe without being gimmicky. We loved them and so did our guests! Highly recommend!

    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.

    exceptional!

    These guys were outstanding! They created the ideal ambiance for mingling, dining and dancing. Set up acoustic for cocktail hour and then plugged in for dinner and dancing. They learned our song for first dance and played it to a T! So good! Can't say enough, highly recommend!!

    I highly recommend hiring the Blue Vipers. We hired them for our wedding, they were everything we wanted in a band! They were a pleasure to work with- friendly, communicative, professional. Of course it also helps that their music is fantastic!! (This may not be how they describe themselves, but to me the music was jazzy, 20s big band, with a hint of bluegrass.) It really helped create a fun, light, classy atmosphere. Guests of all ages were raving about them to me during and after the wedding, about how much fun the band was, and how easy their music was to dance to! (the dance floor was packed all night long!) We had 7 piece band for our outdoor wedding reception, and 4 for our cocktail hour, but they were really flexible with letting us choose how many musicians we wanted.... !

    Outstanding, couldn't have been happier.

    These guys were easy to work with, clear with what they can and can't accomplish, reasonable on their pricing considering the amount of talent they have and were the talk of our wedding reception. Young and old, everyone loved them. We only asked them to learn one song and they did a great job with it. The set they put together was outstanding. I highly recommend them.

    The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn played our intimate wedding at Frankies 457 from start to finish. We received SO SO SO many compliments on the band - even relatives who rarely have a good time at family functions seemed to be enjoying them :-).

    In addition to the day itself, the band was great with recommendations and came up with their setlist with next to no input from us.

    Would highly recommend them whether you are having a big or small wedding.

    The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn were amazing at my wedding! They were so courteous and proffesional leading up to the wedding day via email and phone calls. They were punctual day of the wedding and did an AMAZING job. My guests said it was the best live band they have ever seen at a wedding. It was so fun to dance to and they really made the day special. Jaws literally dropped during the percussionist's solos. People kept asking me, "where did you find these guys??!!" The answer is we were referred by another couple that had them as their wedding band! I would refer this band to anyone who wants to do something jazzy and outside of the box. It will truly make your wedding stand out from the crowd. I would DEFINITELY book them again, and not just for a wedding. 10 out of 5 stars!

    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!

    We booked the Blue Vipers for our August 2017 New York wedding and they were absolutely perfect. From our first email, communication with Chris was prompt, professional, and nothing but pleasant. After seeing the Blue Vipers play at a venue in the area, we immediately booked them because we loved their music. They are really talented musicians who read the room really well and made sure our cocktail evening party had the perfect vibe - a great mix of mingling and dancing music. They also happen to just be really nice guys. Whenever people mention our wedding, they always mention the great band first! Do yourself a favor and have them at your wedding!

    We could not have been happier with the Blue Vipers! They provided just the right vibe for our outdoor garden wedding in Brooklyn - they are incredibly talented and versatile musicians, and a band we could listen to all day. We got so many positive comments from guests about how great they were. They were also very flexible with dealing with some rather difficult weather (heat, rain), and they accommodated several special requests from us including learning two new songs and playing our recessional. The band was extremely easy to work with, and booking was a breeze. We loved the Vipers and would be psyched to go to any wedding where they were playing!!

    We hired the Blue Vipers of Brooklyn for our wedding at the Bowery Hotel in October 2016 to perform at our cocktail hour. From initial contact until day of, the Blue Vipers were extremely friendly and straight forward to work with. They have an extensive list of songs to play and can even learn a few special ones for you if necessary. Also, they have a spotify playlist so you can actually check out a significant portion of their music to make sure its a fit. Our guests absolutely loved them and it was a great way to kick off our wedding reception. We would absolutely recommend them and hope we can use them again for any future events!

    We spent a while looking for the right band for our wedding--somebody that would please a pretty wide variety of guests and create a fun atmosphere. We started online and then checked out a couple acts in person, and the Blue Vipers were awesome live, and really nice to speak with, besides. They played beautifully and our guests went bananas for them. Can't recommend highly enough!

    The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn played at my wedding reception in Brooklyn this July. We had the option of having a quartet up to an octet. We went with a quintet, which resulted in a great, full sound and was perfect for the size of the room. Leading up to the wedding I communicated with Chris, the upright bass player, and always found him to be responsive, professional, and friendly. The Blue Vipers were just fantastic! We held our wedding at the Montauk Club, an old club in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Their vibe totally fit the atmosphere. Having live music felt so special! They played a great mix of early jazz, swing, and blues that was thoroughly enjoyed by all our guests of all ages. For instance, it made us so happy to see our 20-something friends dancing to the same songs as our 90-something great uncle. Everyone raved about them and I can't wait to see them play again! (They have a weekly gig at Bar Tabac in Carroll Gardens, BK.) I recommend them 100%!

    My husband and I knew that we wanted live music for both our ceremony and the cocktail hour. After a little research, I stumbled across the Blue Vipers of Brooklyn and realized they play right up the street from our apartment at Bar Tabac. We went and checked them out and that was it! We love the New Orleans sound and relaxed feel they had. We were married outside at the Yellow House of Willowdale in Kennett Square, PA, and they were the perfect addition to the venue. They even learned two new songs for our processional which they played beautifully! They were a hit at our cocktail hour also, our guests raved about them. if you're looking for a unique, professional yet easy-going group to work with, then I highly recommend the Blue Vipers. It was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding!
