  • Abe and his band are an amazing find! They are kind, excellent communicators, and the best musicians. Abe is the main point of contact - He is prompt and a wealth of knowledge on how best to go about any event being planned. I am so grateful to have found them and booked them! These guys are a truly talented and a classy act. I highly recommend them to any one seeking 5 star entertainment!

  • We hired Garuda Blue to perform out our wedding, during the ceremony, dinner and reception. Every part of their involvement was fantastic. Abe was so easy to work with and very professional. My husband is a huge music snob and was very impressed with the talent and range of the entire band. All the guests (including us) were dancing the night away and Garuda definitely kept the party going. If you are looking for an A+ live band for your event, you won't be disappointed.

  • We hired Garuda for our team cocktail event for 250 people following a two day strategy session. They played perfectly to the atmosphere and were only too happy to stay on longer than I had originally asked as the team didn't want it to end. The start was great jazz music that suited the event and by the end, they had the entire group up dancing. Thank you so much!

  • We hired Garuda Blue for a wedding of around 100 guests at the St Francis Yacht Club. They played a cocktail hour from 5-6pm and then a set from 6-9pm, with a break in the middle for speeches. Overall, we had a magical night due in no small part to the incredible atmosphere that the live band created. Garuda Blue is incredibly talented and the level of musicianship is very high. All their numbers are extremely tight and well-rehearsed, creating a magical experience for all our guests. Multiple guests later told me that the band was the highlight of the night. They played a range of jazzy numbers for the sunset cocktail hour and then transitioned into swing for our first dances, after which they started mixing in some recognizable pop covers. The music was so good that the dance floor was packed from the moment the dancing started until the end of the night. They were also accommodating of a couple of pre-arranged song requests from us. Their price was very reasonable: for the ... Read more

  • Garuda Blue Band was great and the perfect band for our wedding. We got married at Carmel Valley Ranch and had a number of custom requests that the band helped us with and made sure went off perfectly. Whether it was jazz or pop, these guys did an excellent job keeping the crowd engaged. They even learned two songs and accompanied my father during our reception which was a very special requests on our part. These guys are simply amazing!

  • Seriously, if you’re looking to book a band then look no further. These guys were absolutely amazing! Both my father-in-law and I are musicians so we naturally had some high expectations, and Garuda Blue exceeded them all. Incredibly talented and they nailed all of our special requests expertly. The rest of their set was flawless. They performed at the ceremony, through dinner and of course after for the remainder of the night, and their selections, arrangements and execution were perfect. Their covers of Bowie and Stevie Wonder were among my favorites, and they even pulled off a beautiful Hamilton instrumental for my wife’s entrancement. Their range and precision were incredible. Performance aside, they were professional and responsive throughout the entire process, had the best attitudes the day of, and were a pleasure to work with. They were quick and efficient, and knew exactly how to work the venue for the best possible sound and placement. We couldn’t be happier and the... Read more

  • Garuda Blue was absolutely awesome!!! They played at our wedding last weekend and were super accommodating and worked to customize the program/night exactly how I imagined, but even better!!! The music was awesome, the service personal and real, and the mix of music spot on. My only regret was having such a busy night (what they say is true - the day is a blur and you don’t remember anything!) that I didn’t get to fully enjoy the band’s music ourselves (but at least our guests did!). If you’re trying to toss up between hiring a DJ or a band for your wedding/event, I would 10000% recommend getting a band. Specifically, this band! Thanks guys for making our night an amazing one! Wouldn’t have been the same without your music :) no regrets ever!

  • This band is seriously awesome. They played our wedding down in Palm Springs and we could not have been happier. These guys are clearly VERY talented musicians, but beyond that they had everybody at the wedding dancing the entire night. We, as well as all of our guests, had such a blast. They are young guys and super energetic - it felt like they were just as excited to be at the wedding as we were. 10/10 would highly recommend these guys if you are in need of a band for a wedding or any other big event!

  • Not a mediocre wedding band, these boys nailed the Jazz and met the crowd’s energy flawlessly! They were our most timely and effective vendor to communicate with. They received our low key and somewhat disorganized style the day of with grace and ease. These men are true musicians-buy your flowers from Costco, starve people, cancel the cheesy favors- whatever you have to do to get Garuda Blue to your wedding. I promise it’s worth it. Although be prepared for them to outshine the bride, they’re that good.

    Thanks for the kind words Katie, it was such a pleasure performing for you guys! We had a blast of a weekend traveling to SoCal!

  • Garuda Blue is an exceptional band. They are extremely talented musicians and are super versatile - making them a perfect wedding/party band. We had the pleasure of having them at our wedding (in Lake Tahoe) and they absolutely rocked it! From the beautiful ceremony music to the formal cocktail hour to the dance floor - everything was perfect and on point. They are classy, but know how to get the party going! They were SO pleasant to work with and even let us request 6 songs that weren’t on their already massive playlist! Meaning they had to learn and perform these songs and did so just for us! We highly recommend this band and wish we could give them more than 5 stars.

  • Garuda is an absolute gem of a band. They provided the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and the first half of our dancing. At everystep they overdelivered on what was expected of them. They lean hard on jazz standards but took on temporary music and requests beautifully. I feel very lucky to have had them at our wedding.

  • Garuda Blue played at our wedding and they were a fantastic addition to an amazing day! Abe was excellent at communicating promptly regarding logistics prior to the wedding. The band showed up on time looking sharp and set up smoothly. Their renditions of our requested songs were great and they even facilitated a surprise musical number my parents planned and performed. Guests across generations and cultures were dancing and the jazz music during dinner really added to the atmosphere. They really helped the party feel special and kept the energy going. I received multiple compliments from guests about the band. I would highly recommend them!
