  • Bluewater Kings Band was the perfect addition to our wedding! They got everyone up dancing on the very first song and kept the party going all night - the dance floor was full the entire time! We have received more compliments on the band from our wedding than almost anything else. We really appreciated how personalized the entire experience felt since we could build our band size (we did 8 members including a brass section), type of vibe we wanted and music! They started with soft jazz during cocktail hour and then got the party going once the dancing started. Absolute 100% recommend considering them when looking for your music for the night!

  • The very BEST band you could possibly ask for. Right from the beginning Tasha was extremely kind, helpful and super excited for us and our wedding. Even meeting her she was so sweet and amazing! And the band members were so friendly and nice. I had not seen this band live prior to hiring them but had read up on all the reviews and talked to people who had hired them before. Wow did they exceed my expectations and I truly truly mean it, they were AWESOME. The music selections were exactly what we wanted and our guests had a BLAST dancing all night long. There was never an empty dance floor. They even went out of their way to make sure every name was pronounced right. I have never been so pleased with a wedding band in my life, they were soooo worth it. They even had amazing projection lights going which were outstanding. If you are considering hiring a band, this is the one. Our guests kept asking all night long who they were and complimenting us for hiring them. YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

  • The Bluewater Kings Band did such an amazing job with the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and MC at our wedding. They were absolutely worth every penny and were also pretty affordable for the services provided. The best part was that they were able to cater the music selection to fit our specific interests. We received so many compliments from our guests about the band

  • My now husband and I opted for the 6 person band to include female and male vocalist and a sax, and could not have been happier with our choice! BWKB was professional, organized, and really ensured our guests had a great time, which was super important to us as we were one of the first weddings post-Covid, we knew experience would be everything. Highly recommend!

  • Very highly recommend this band! The Blue Water Kings were so great to work with from start to finish. Their online portal is very user friendly and allows you to add a lot of detail to help them and make the night go smoothly and perform to your preferences. Their manager was responsive and easy to work with. We had an 8-piece band and they were incredible! We still get compliments from guests about how good they were and how much fun everyone had. They were great MC’s as well and were on top of the playlist music during their breaks. One of my favorite parts is they did custom 90 second acoustic versions of our first dance song, mother-son and father-daughter songs which turned out amazing, everything we were hoping for! Thanks again, Ryan and Band!

  • We’re so glad that we picked the Bluewater Kings as our wedding band! We chose the 9 piece option and had them MC for us. They were really great about helping us to rebook when we had to change our date due to covid-it looked like they weren’t going to be able to, but worked hard to staff us an incredible band. All of our guests were impressed by how awesome they were and they played a lot of great songs to get our guests out on the dance floor. They had a male and female singer which was great because we felt like they were able to play a wider variety of music. They have a webpage for you to fill out your music preferences and to share any special dance songs you might want them to play/learn - they’ll learn up to three new ones for you - and a timeline of the day/information you’d like announced if you are having them MC. It was easy to use and great that we didn’t have to figure out how put that together ourselves to send to them.

  • Top notch musicians came and played my wedding and blew all of us away with their talent. If you’re on the fence about who to book, just pick blue water kings. They made it easy to plan, gave us everything we asked for and then some, and I feel like we got way more than we paid for. Lots of guests asked me afterwards the name of the band so they could try and get them for their wedding too. They played the first dance songs that we requested and we are very pleased with BWK. They did very well in the reception venue that had a ton of natural reverb as well. The sound engineer was also top notch. 10/10 recommend.

Everyone had a blast! They even learned our first dance song (which was a new artist) and crushed it!! Would recommend them to anyone looking for an incredible band for their wedding!

  • Booking the Bluewater Kings Band is hands down the best decision we made during our whole wedding planning process. I’m pretty sure our guests will be talking about how much fun they had, even at a covid wedding. Wearing masks and staying socially distant didn’t stop anyone from getting up and dancing because they couldn’t resist. My husband and I only left the dance floor when we had to! Not only was their performance amazing, but they answered all my emails and calls very timely before the reception. Tony was amazing to work with. We had a phone call a week before the wedding to finalize everything and he really helped with the whole timeline of the reception. It went so smoothly. I 1000/10 recommend. If you have to choose one thing to splurge on for your wedding, choose the Bluewater Kings, they are worth more than every penny!

  • This band was amazing. Had a Sunday afternoon wedding, and the band was the reason for a filled dance floor for the entire event! Even the music played during their breaks was "danceable". Can't tell you enough how highly I recommend them! Thanks to the entire band for helping to make the wedding a success!

  • I had a wonderful experience with the Bluewater Kings band. I hired them for my original 120 person wedding in spring of 2020. We rescheduled for a year later because of the pandemic. The band was extremely understanding, working with us the whole time and even converting our plans to have a 7 piece band to something more fitting for a 20 person mini-wedding (which is what we ended up having). Tony was very patient and kind, making suggestions and learning our preferences. Our processional and recessional music included some uncommon requests, but was carried out splendidly. The jazz trio played beautifully and was kind enough to play a request from my grandfather (which was incredibly special). The personalization and willingness to accommodate was unbeatable. I can’t recommend them enough!

  • The band was awesome!! The female vocalist blew everybody away. I could not stop dancing the entire night. And the process of booking and speaking with Jason was very easy. It was by far the best night of my life and I would book them a thousand times again!

  • This band is a classic wedding band at a decent price point. The actual band itself was great, super kind and you could tell they were having a great time performing! We had a COVID wedding, so dance floor participation and general attendance was low, but that didn't stop them from giving it their all! However, we had a couple of hiccups. 1. The band was very late, some of the artists were carrying in their instruments from outside during our seated dinner 2. One of the members told me (the bride) they were late, I laughed it off but recommended he not mention it :) 3. They played "At Last" by Etta James three times. Great song, but a faux pas. 4. They did play songs I had requested (via Spotify) for dinner which was great! However, I think putting it on shuffle is why the song mentioned above played twice. Then, they played it live, so perhaps a bit more attention to detail. 5. They didn't bring the necessary lighting so our caterer (bless him!) made a call to a DJ ... Read more

    Hi Josh, Thank you for your feedback. We had a great time performing for you and your guests and are so glad you enjoyed the band! I'm really sorry for some of the hiccups in the evening. As you know, most of the band was already on site before cocktail hour. Two of the musicians who were carpooling together arrived just before the reception. I'd like to clarify that they weren't late for the reception, we just typically expect everyone to show up at least 30 minutes early, even if they aren't involved in the set up, in case any issues arise–which is what happened in this case as their GPS was having issues finding the private venue. Thankfully they were still able to show up in time, but I'm really sorry if this caused any concern during your dinner. I've spoken to the band regarding the attention to detail on the break playlist and "At Last" playing three times. That shouldn't have been an issue at your event and certainly won't be an issue moving forward. I'd also like to apologize for the lighting mishap. Our lighting and sound tech had to cancel at the last minute for covid-related reasons. We were able to get a new tech who could be on site but there was some miscommunication in the shuffle. I'm so glad that was able to be sorted and we obviously refunded the full cost for the lighting that was missing. Again, thank you for your feedback. We have taken these comments into account as we improve our services and adjust to new norms – we certainly hope to be back to regular event circumstances soon! Wishing you all the best :)
