Wedding Reception in Lagrange, GA on 11/06/2010
"MEN IN BLUES really delivered! They are a friendly group of extremely talented musicians. We had nothing but positive comments from our guests. The music was great to dance to, but even the non-dancers in our crowd raved about how good the band was! The guys were punctual, professional, and seemed to be having as good a time as we were--despite the cold weather. Ian is very easy to work with from start to finish. I would highly recommend this band to anyone who likes rock and good ol' blues! "

Wedding Reception in Gainesville, GA on 05/29/2010
"These guys are great. They arrived early and were very relaxed. They started on time, finished on time, and were great guests in our home. Everyone was impressed and interested in going to see them again and booking them for their own events."
- Kathy O.
Wedding Reception in Jasper, GA on 10/24/2009
"Ian and the gang were thrown a nasty curve by us at the last minute. Men In Blues stepped up to the plate and delivered a grand slam. They were very easy going and accommodating for our wedding. The entire wedding had a great time, and they even did a unrehearsed number with an attendee. Everyone kept asking us where we found them, and how much fun they had at our wedding. Thanks for making everything so easy!"
- Jessica M.
Private Party in Woodstock, GA on 08/22/2009
"Men in Blues was an outstanding band! We had them for an outdoor concert at our neighborhood and they were amazing. The music was a great range of genres, and something that everyone enjoyed, from the 30-somethings, to the 70-somethings! Everyone was up dancing and having a great time. I would highly recommend this band for your next social event - wedding, party, work function - whatever! They far exceeded my expectations. We can't wait to have them back at our next event!!"
- Meredith H.
Wedding in Gainesville, GA on 06/06/2009
"I hired Men In Blues for my wedding reception and my experiences with them were all positive. Correspondence with the band leading up to the event was efficient and hassle-free. Above all, the talent these guys have is STELLAR. They really know how to gauge where the crowd is and how to get a party started! I would give my highest recommendation of Men In Blues to anyone planning an event and in need of entertainment. My family can't wait until our next party so we can have these guys back for live entertainment! Thanks MIB... "

Birthday Party (Adults) in Atlanta, GA on 05/24/2008
"The music was great! Ian was very easy to work with. The band interacted well with the crowd and got everyone dancing all night. I would use them again for future events. "

New Year's Eve Party in Jonesboro, GA on 12/31/2008
"I hired the band for our New Years Eve party and they were a blast. Let me begin by saying that as a whole, live music has not worked for us in several years. We have a group of people that usually walk out on the bands to sing karaoke, or truthfully, just to talk trash about the band that has been hired. NOT THIS NIGHT!!! This band put on a show that kept everyone entertained. They are a great band, with great musicians, and fantastic attitudes.If you want my opinion, well here it is, HIRE THIS BAND AND GET READY FOR A GOOD TIME!!!"
- Bryan W.
Birthday Party (Adults) in Canton, GA on 09/20/2008
""Men in Blues" were fantastic at a surprise Bday party given for me. I'm an old rocker & Bluesman & these guys played all my favorites & great party/dancing music. It was indeed a pleasure to sit in with them on a tune. The band was very tight & had great tone. They blew the whole crowd away with the Pink Floyd song "Comfortably Numb". The party is one of the most memorable moments of my 60 years & "Men in Blues" was certainly a big part of it. I've seen them since at Nick's Place in Marietta & listen to their music on CDs. I will be taking friends to see them & letting people know what a great band we have right here in ATL. Keep on Rocking "Men in Blues"! "

Wedding in Atlanta, GA on 06/02/2007
"We hired the Men in Blues to entertain at our wedding reception - and it was one of the best decisions we made!! Ian (the bandleader) could not have been more friendly and accommodating - he allowed me to call and email him numerous times in preparation for the reception and was always quick to respond and as nice as he could be. The band rehearsed a special song to play for my father and I that was not normally on their play list - and they did an awesome job! The band members are ALL truly professional musicians and it is evident in the sound they produce as well as in their personalities/conduct at the event. They are fun and excitingly, but dependable and left us with nothing to worry about. All night long, guests came up to me asking where on earth I had found these guys - that they were great and so much fun - that this was the best wedding reception they had ever been to. Even my cousin was amazed to see our (sometimes a little uptight) family out on the dance floor enjoying the music.
I cannot say enough about how thrilled I was with the Men in Blues – if I ever plan another event I will definitely give them a call. They eased every worry and ensured that everyone had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend this group for any party or reception!!! Thanks Men in Blues!!!!

"Men in Blues were so great to work with and did a wonderful job at our wedding reception at Lake Oconee! They put on a great performance that really got people up and dancing. They also did a wonderful job learning and performing "our song"! We received loads of compliments on them and can't wait to hear them again soon. Many thanks. "

Fundraiser in Atlanta, GA on 09/22/2007
"At the Grant Park neighborhood's 34th annual Moth Ball - Men In Blues ROCKED THE HOUSE!!! They had folks from 20 - 70 up and dancing all night. So many people came up to me and said "These guys are great!" They we're a delight to work with and probably would have played all night. They have my highest recommendation for making the party fun and funky for all. MEN IN BLUES - OLD DUDES DEFINITELY ROCK!"
