We love this band!
We love this band! They definitely understood the kind of music we wanted and they made our wedding one to remember. In fact, several weeks after the wedding, our guests are still talking about how talented they are. They are an amazing group of musicians with a lot of energy, and they were very professional as well. You can’t go wrong with Bluewater Kings!
We are still receiving compliments
I was hesitant at first because I had not seen them play live but they exceeded every single one of my expectations. They were unbelievably amazing and I am a very picky person. They were able to make our wedding perfect. They made the dance floor the most fun place ever, we are still receiving compliments from people about how fun our wedding was. But they also accommodated everything that we wanted and made the whole process extremely smooth and easy. I would HIGHLY recommend. Do not even bother looking anywhere else.
Their energy is amazing
HOLY MOLY! We hired Bluewater Kings for our wedding ceremony and reception in Minneapolis and they absolutely killed it. Our producer was great to work with on making sure we got the songs we wanted played during the ceremony and the first dances and other details. But man, once the 6 piece band started playing at the reception, I was on the dance floor all night. Their energy is amazing, and everyone couldn’t stop commenting on how awesome they were! They really connected with the guests and it felt like our own mini concert. My feet still ache from dancing. Best. band. Ever!
A live band that can turn any reception into a party
I heard Bluewater Kings Band yesterday and they knocked my socks off! WOW! Such vocal talent, gorgeous harmonies, amazing horns...I could go on! The dance floor was full and everyone loved them. I will most certainly be recommending this group to our clients looking for a live band that can turn any reception into a party!
Skip the DJ. Bluewater Kings were the best band we could have dreamed for on our wedding day. They were professional, kind, fun and most of all - they rocked! I would recommend them to any couple.
Perfect experience, from answering every question we had to keeping our guests dancing all night. I’m so thankful they’re affordable because it made our night a million times better. They’re worth every penny. Many guests asked us the name of the band to use them in the future, and my husband and I are already trying to think of future events we could have them play at again. Kind people, great musicians, friendly, not enough great things to say! HIGHLY recommend.
Your guests will be on the dance floor all night
We hired Bluewater Kings Band based solely off the demos of their website and online reviews - and they were totally worth it! All the reviews are true - your guests will be on the dance floor all night, raving about how much fun your reception was. Not only was the band phenomenal, but the jazz trio we hired for our cocktail hour was also excellent. Our main point of contact was super responsive, very friendly and so easy to work with. The shared band planning page made it easy for us to collaborate. Would hire them again in a heartbeat, no questions asked!
The atmosphere was so fun
What an amazing experience. My wife and I wanted something different at our wedding, and Bluewater Kings certainly fit the bill. The dance floor was lively the entire night, family and friends that we figured would leave after the ceremony stuck around because the atmosphere was so fun. The band leader handled all the MC responsibility perfectly and they ensured that everything went to plan. All this and also they absolutely ROCKED! Will recommend to anyone looking for a live option going forward. What a great experience and awesome vendor to work with. Thanks!
Everyone was on the dance floor
Bluewater Kings were SO MUCH FUN to have for our wedding. They were so easy to work with and everyone said it was the most fun they've ever had with a band at a wedding! Everyone was on the dance floor. Highly recommend!
Kept the party going all night
There's not enough we can say to express how awesome the Bluewater Kings were at our wedding! They had the best timing and kept the party going all night. We have a few friends (in bands of their own) drooling at how amazing they were and we received so many compliments all night. They made the party what it was. They were extremely attentive to our requests and learned the songs we requested in advance to a T. Do yourself a favor and hire this band! You won't regret it.
We can’t say enough good things
The band was incredible start to finish. They provided us with ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception music. During our reception countless people came up to us raving about the band and wow, our dance floor was packed the entire night! Our producer was so easy to work with and the band did a great job as the MC, they made sure all our favorite music was played and learned a favorite song of ours. Since the wedding I’ve received so many messages from family and friends about how they haven’t danced that much in a long time!!! We can’t say enough good things about the Bluewater Kings! You will not regret booking them!
A GREAT party
We hired the Bluewater Kings Band for our wedding day in late June hoping for a good party. We got a GREAT party! Excellent singing by the band! We had so many people come up to us throughout the night asking who the band was. Not one person was sitting by the end of the night! Song sequence was so great and really catered to all of the guests, young and old. Thanks so much for a wonderful night! Highly recommend!!!
