  • 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!

  • We loved working with Abe - he was incredibly responsive and professional. Garuda Blue delivered an absolutely fantastic performance for our reception - beginning with perfectly selected jazz standards during cocktail hour and dinner, then kicking it up a notch for dancing later on in the evening. The song they performed for our first dance together (and learned at our request) was one of the loveliest renderings we've ever heard (Stevie Wonder's "Overjoyed"). Their performance really made our reception unique and special, and our guests couldn't say enough great things about them. We also really appreciated their willingness to drive to a relatively remote venue and play outside!

  • Garuda Blue was a phenomenal band for our wedding! They are fantastic musicians in their own right, masters of tunes across many genres, with a knack for reading the crowd. They played throughout our evening outdoors, from jazz to funk to other tunes that got our guests grooving. They were incredibly easy to communicate and plan with in advance and even during the night of, they stayed late when the crowd wanted more. We could not more highly recommend Garuda Blue!

  • Garuda Blue rocked! Our wedding was exceptional because of these guys. My wife and I are so glad that we decided to hire them. We had them from ceremony until midnight and they covered all the bases that we needed for the day. Their playing and music were phenomenal. They were super talented jazz musicians and it showed in their performance. We loved every moment of it. They mixed in vocal jazz alongside instrumental jazz classics and they made the evening extra special. Afterwards, they went beast mode with the party music. Had the whole party dancing on the floor. Way better than a DJ. I highly recommend Garuda Blue for any occasion. Thanks guys! You’re awesome!

Their music was killing! Me and my wife are so glad we hired them. They were so worth the money we spent and our guests loved them!! They're so professional and what a talented bunch of young musicians. THANKS Garuda Blue, keep up being awesome!

  • Hiring Garuda Blue was the best thing we could have done for our wedding. We were thoroughly impressed by their professionalism and musicality. This band is NOT your typical wedding band. When working with this band, you don’t work with an agency. You work DIRECTLY with Abe (he’s the piano player and band leader) & his team. This band is a tight-knit group of PRO level young musicians and these are all the same guys you see in their videos. When we were browsing through different bands, we discovered that most wedding bands are agency based and when you hire them, they call up different musicians and they’ll assemble a band for your wedding. That just didn’t cut it for us. We wanted an actual band that has its own personality and chemistry, not just some hastily arranged band by an agency to perform at your wedding. Garuda Blue is exactly the opposite of these agency bands. Working with Abe was awesome. From day one we knew exactly what we were getting. Firstly, these guy... Read more

  • My husband and I are completely thrilled and happy with Garuda Blue. They were the perfect band for us. Our wedding would not have been the same without them. I’ve lost count on the amount of compliments we’ve gotten for the band. We are jazz lovers and we could not have found a better band. These guys were so good. They are real jazz musicians; their playing is completely beyond their age. What was very evident was their love for what they do. Our wedding was not simply a job for them but a real opportunity to play music and entertain people. Lastly, they really listened and felt the crowd. We hired them for jazz but when they felt that the crowd wanted to dance more, they immediately switched to dance music on the spot and got everybody on the dance floor. We couldn’t have been happier with our decision to hire Garuda Blue.

    Thanks Katie, what an awesome wedding!

  • I’m so happy with Garuda Blue! Words can’t express it. They’re such a great band and overall just a great group of guys to hang with. Our guests loved them and everyone gravitated towards the band. We’re so happy we decided to hire these guys over another band that we considered during our planning stages. If you’re a jazz fan like I am, I wouldn’t even consider hiring anyone else in the business. These dudes are actual hardcore jazz musicians, monsters on their instruments. They have their own arrangements of jazz classics that are way too good. These guys must have been playing together for a long time to have the kind of synergy that they have, very rare nowadays. Thanks guys for making our wedding extra special!

  • Garuda Blue was the perfect choice for my parents' anniversary party. They are outstanding musicians and very professional. Many of my guests came up to me raving about how amazing the band was. As the party was a surprise, the timeline of events was somewhat up in the air, but the band was very flexible and accommodating. They were also open to song suggestions I gave in advance and were able to play them. I definitely would hire again!

  • Garuda Blue took my wedding to the next level. They were so worth the investment. Firstly, this band is not your typical wedding band. These guys don’t just play your typical go to wedding songs for a “feel” good, cheesy wedding vibe. I wanted a band that is high-energy, cool and hip with musicians that can really play their music. Also, if you are a jazz fan, you will know what I’m talking about. This band plays jazz like nobody’s business. I got distracted more than once because I would hear these killing solos from the guys in the band. Their playing is beyond their age. That would never happen with your typical feel good wedding band. To top it off, the dudes in this band are seriously down to earth and overall just a nice group of guys to chill with. Five stars all around. Seriously hire this band…

  • Garuda Blue was top notch. We couldn’t have picked a better band to work with. We like to go out and catch live shows and this band definitely stood out when Abe invited us to their jam session at Savanna Jazz. These guys got chemistry that other bands lack. They read each other’s minds and their music stood out because of it. I could have listened to them all night. We hired them ASAP for our wedding. At the wedding, they delivered. Our guests loved them. They were a good hang and just an all-around great group of guys that can really play their music. Working with them was a breeze. They were so professional and made sure everything went smoothly from start to finish. Answered any questions I had and played all the music that I requested for the special dances. They were so worth the money we spent. This band is a RARE find among wedding bands nowadays. There are plenty of typical, cookie cutter wedding bands out there. If you want something that stands out, this band is d... Read more

  • My wife and I are super happy that we hired Garuda Blue for our wedding. We were incredibly impressed by their professionalism and above all by their music. So many awesome comments from our guests. They are HANDS DOWN super talented & a tight group of musicians. The only drawback was that we totally miscalculated and didn’t hire them long enough. DON’T hire a DJ when you have this band. They will put any DJs to shame. They played high class jazz for our cocktail hour and dinner, and a little bit of dance music afterwards. Then it was their time to go and our DJ to take over. Bad mistake. The DJ couldn’t keep up with the energy that they had. I wish we would have hired them until midnight. They were so personable and interacted with our guests in ways that a DJ could never do. The quick dance set that they played brought way more guests to the dance floor than the DJ the rest of the night. You can’t ever go wrong with this band. Seriously.
