Five stars are too few for a band as talented as Blue Avenue Groove!! Their music was the highlight of our wedding and booking them was the best decision we made. We had a lot of trouble finding a band that was willing to stray a little bit from the classic wedding tunes - that is, a band capable of prioritizing rock music, without sacrificing a healthy mix of pop, funk, and Motown. We had almost given up hope, until a friend recommended Blue Avenue Groove. Immediately after speaking with their band leader (and talented bass guitarist), Will Kencel, we knew we found what we were looking for! From the beginning, the band was incredibly flexible and easy to work with. They offered a range of ensemble sizes and options. We ended up booking an eight-piece band (including male and female singers) for the reception and a trio for the cocktail hour, and the price was beyond reasonable for what we received in return. Will was incredibly receptive to learning multiple special requests, and even emailed us a preliminary setlist to tweak and edit. Our guests were blown away by their sound and their style, especially their amazing singers, and the feedback was universally positive. The band's energy kept people dancing all night - no one wanted to miss a song! If you're reading this, stop what you're doing and book Blue Avenue Groove for your wedding!! You will be forever happy with your decision. Don't delay! The soundtrack to your big day will be exactly as you envision it. We cannot thank them enough!!!

We can't say enough about Blue Avenue Groove. The group played our Wedding in July  and it was a great event. Our guests couldn't stop talking about the band and most came up to us afterwards to tell us how much they enjoyed the music. The group is made up of outstanding musicians, their two lead singers Jonathan and Sami are nothing short of amazing, and they really groove. Will was great to work with, he was all over the the event details- ran by set lists ahead of time with us to craft a great lineup of soul/funk/R&B classics with a few newer tunes thrown in, and was happy to have my husband (a drummer) sit in for a number of songs which delighted the crowd! If you book Blue Avenue Groove for your Wedding you won't be disappointed.
I can't say enough about Blue Avenue Groove. They were AMAZING! Our family and friends cannot stop raving about the music at our wedding. My husband and I are music aficionados and Blue Avenue Groove knocked it out of the park. We booked them for the cocktail hour, reception and ceremony for our 90 guests wedding in Brooklyn. They even accommodated our song requests, which of course were some of the most challenging pieces of music ever written. Blue Avenue Groove outperformed bands that cost twice as much, and gave us a really personalized and unique musical experience. Highly recommended!
