What people say Help

  • Blue Juice were absolutely brilliant, and really nailed the evening entertainment. We opted for the 5 piece (inc Sax) and it really was a massive highlight of the day for both of us. The band were razor sharp, and the only complaint we got was from someone who was couldn't leave the dancefloor - they didn't play any tunes they didn't like. At the risk of repetition, Blue Juice knocked it out of the park, and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a function band.

    Dave, Wedding, East Sussex, April 2016
  • Book this band! You will not regret it - they are BRILLIANT! They played at our wedding, learned a song for our first dance and absolutely rocked it. It was an awesome party - thank you Blue Juice!!!

    Sally, Wedding, April 2016
  • They were great and everyone was dancing all night! If anyone reading this is thinking about booking these guys then all I can say is do it!! They are fab!

    Laura, Wedding, New Forest, February 2016
  • Blue Juice were fantastic, They had everyone on the dancefloor all night long. They took requests, played one floor filler after another, were friendly and fun. Everyone made comments, best band ever!

    Cassandra, Wedding, Surrey, January 2016
  • Blue Juice were amazing at our wedding on 5th December – everyone is still talking about the band – thanks so much! Your fab sets kept the dance floor filled - we always knew there would be one or two of our guests dancing the night away but even they were saying their feet hurt two days later! You were amazing and I can’t recommend you guys enough!

    Lisa, Wedding, London, December 2015
  • Just wanted to let you know we were so pleased with Blue Juice, they were so professional but great fun also! They got everyone dancing the night away and we can't thank them enough for all the effort put into the performance, they're a wonderful group. Thank you very much.

    Beth and Lath , Wedding, Bath, November 2015
  • Well I don't know how to say thank you enough Blue Juice you were absolutely incredible at our wedding on 7th Nov! The dance floor was buzzing with guests, your music was awesome and so funky! My nephew has not stopped talking about you and his moment of fame singing 'Thinking out loud' with you all. I cannot recommend you enough, and any other celebrations we have we will definitely be contacting you! Such a fantastic group, so talented, thank you so much for making our wedding reception a night to remember!

    Rachael, Wedding, Surrey, November 2015
  • You guys were amazing!!! We couldn't believe our luck, not your usual 'wedding band!' Your music repertoire was awesome! You got the dance floor moving all night! Thanks again for a brilliant wedding! Our friends and family are already considering when we can hire you guys again!!

    Tiffany, Wedding, Hampshire, September 2015
  • FANTASTIC, BRILLIANT,AMAZING group you are. You played at my son and daughter in laws wedding on Saturday. Had so much feedback about how fantastic the band was, you were truly amazing and the choice of music was great. The dance floor was buzzing all night long so THANK YOU for making their night so special xx

    Gill, Wedding, Surrey, September 2015
  • We were so happy with Blue Juice. We thought they'd be good but they totally exceeded our expectations! Really tight sound that rocked along and great choice of tunes, they got everyone dancing. Added hugely to the party atmosphere. Would definitely recommend them.

    Debbie, 60th Birthday Party, Sussex, September 2015
  • I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how awesome the band were at our wedding. Both the venue staff and guests have all told us how much they loved the music. It was just as we hope it would be, they are very talented!

    Claire and Rob, Wedding, Sussex, September 2015
  • Thank you so much for absolutely smashing it at our wedding on Saturday night! There wasn't one single person who didn't say you are the best wedding band they've ever seen. Nobody wanting you to stop playing, even the more reserved people at the back we're jumping up and down at the front by the end of the night. When I thought the day couldn't get any better you guys came on. I will definitely recommend you to everybody who is having a party and really hope to see you guys again.

    Selin, Wedding, Hampshire, August 2015
  • These guys are absolutely awesome. had everybody at my friends wedding dancing all night!! Fab playlist and the marquee became a mini music festival, everyone smiling and singing and dancing! every time I went to sit down, I was straight back up to dance to the next one. Everyone wanted more after the last song. We had an amazing time and will defo remember this band. Not only talented but Lovely guys too!! Highly Recommended!!

    Natasha, Wedding, Sussex, August 2015
  • I cannot recommend this band enough. Blue Juice were absolutely fantastic. The read the crowd at our wedding so well and really got the party going. The dance floor was completely packed and no one wanted to go home. Thank you so much.

    Natalie, Wedding, Wiltshire Aug 2015
  • A huge thank you to you guys for filling our dance floor non stop last Saturday night. Our guests (and we!) had an awesome time. You guys were amazing, very friendly and accommodating. We were so impressed with your sets and would recommend you to anyone. We only wish we'd hired you for an extra after hours acoustic set round the camp fire! Thanks again.

    Rebecca, Wedding, Sussex, July 2015
  • Blue Juice were amazing! We always hoped that our wedding would be a huge dance fest; it was and they kept everyone (and I really mean everyone) on their feet all night. Their playlist was great, and I lost track of the number of times Chris and I had to bail on a conversation to go dance to the track they played :) Thanks so much!

    Jo, Wedding, Oxfordshire, June 2015
  • 100% satisfied customer!! They were incredible and went above and beyond any expectations I had. They did an acoustic version of our first dance song and it was fantastic - I'm biased but to me it was better than the original! Would definitely recommend them to anyone - and I think all our guests felt the same. Thanks for making our wedding evening so brilliant!

    Michaella, Wedding, Sussex, May 2015
  • 10/10! The band were absolutely superb! We had a technical hitch at the last minute with the PA system at our venue. The band were only meant to be playing until 10.30pm for us, but once we realised we might not be able to play our own ipod after the band had left, we were a bit stuck. But we called them the day prior, and asked if they would stay and DJ for us once the live sets had finished, and they agreed straight away. They played our first dance for us, and from the minute everyone else joined us on the dance floor, no one left, because it was so much fun! Blue juice had everyone dancing the entire night and people kept asking them to stay to perform one more song! It was such a great night!

    Sarah, Wedding, Brighton, May 2015
  • Very happy to say guys were outstanding at our wedding. Everybody who attended has been talking about how great you are. Thank you so much.

    Gareth, Wedding, Southampton, April 2015
  • We thought the band was brilliant. Everyone was up dancing and everyone has commented on how great they were. We really couldn't recommend them enough. They really made our day that more special and kept the party going. Both myself and my husband had very tired dancing legs for the next few days! Thank you Blue Juice.

    Lisa, Wedding, Surrey, April 2015
  • Blue Juice are a talented band and a lovely group of young people. They set up with minimum fuss and the dance floor was rocking from the first dance right through to the rocking Christmas song at the end of the evening. The dance floor was full all the time. Their repertoire is extensive and suits all tastes and their delivery is as tight as you can achieve. We particularly enjoyed the creative and energetic dancing to Baggy Trousers. They were a perfect part of a perfect day, and we would recommend them to anyone as the best, most enthusiastic and professional function band we have seen in Dorset.

    Dave & Di, Wedding, Dorset, December 2014
  • Blue juice were all we wanted and more. The music they played had the floor filled from start to end. They were superb, unassuming and completely accommodating. I would most certainly hire them again and I would recommend them to anyone that wants to have a party that people talk about for weeks after! Their rendition of 'Mr. Brightside' was the highlight of the night!

    Eilidh, Wedding, Surrey, November 2014
  • Blue Juice played at my daughter's wedding and I have to say they were excellent. We all really enjoyed the music. They were very professional and I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a really good band for your function.

    Sandra, Wedding, Chichester, November 2014
  • Blue Juice arrived on time, set up without any issues. Really professional. They contacted me beforehand to discuss music and timings....really friendly!! The music was fantastic all night, and everyone is still commenting on how fab they were...3 weeks later! Would definitely recommend. THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!!

    Jay & James, Wedding, New Forest, September 2014
  • Bloody awesome night! You guys absolutely smashed it! We hope you had as much fun as all of us did and we will definitely spread the word...

    Jackie & Dan, Wedding, Sussex, September 2014
  • Blue Juice were amazing. They played a brilliant mix of songs and the dance floor was never empty. The volume at which they played was great, as it created a party atmosphere, but people were still able to socialise easily, without shouting. We would recommend Blue Juice for anyone who is having a wedding, they really got the party started and got everyone going. We were especially happy with the effort they went to to play our chosen first dance song, It Must be Love - Madness. It was ace!

    Victoria, Wedding, Kent, August 2014
  • We really enjoyed your contribution to the Brown wedding at Stubton Hall. Your enthusiasm, energy and style was great. We would definitely recommend you. Thanks!

    Julie , Wedding, Stubton Hall, July 2014
  • Thank you so much for providing the music for last night! We had a great time, everyone was up dancing and all said how great you were! Our favourites were 'Marry You' 'Happy' and of course the conga line!

    Zoe, Wedding, Stansted, June 2014
  • We were extremely happy with every aspect of Blue Juice. They set up with minimum fuss and the music played and sung was excellent both in sound and content. They judged their audience perfectly and the dance floor was full from the first dance on. We had the DJ service during the breaks which worked well. The band members were very pleasant to all and accommodating to my brother who joined them on a couple of numbers playing his blues harmonica - it made his night and a few other peoples as well! We didn't want the night to finish and would definitely recommend Blue juice as a fantastic band!!

    Niki, Wedding,Dorset May 2014
  • Thank you so much for providing the music for last night! We had a great time, everyone was up dancing and all said how great you were! Our favourites were 'Marry You', 'Happy' and of course the conga line! We'll post more pics as we get them :-)!!

    Zoe, Wedding, Hampshire, May 2014
  • Blue Juice were unbelievable. They played an original set list that went down a storm. The band were tight and the lead singer had a great voice. I don't remember much of the end of the evening but everyone tells me it was brilliant and they helped to make it, so thank you very much!

    Craig, Wedding, Royston, May 2014
  • We were really pleased with Blue Juice. They were great to deal with before our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with their performance on the night. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we had lots of positive feedback. We would definitely recommend them.

    Richard, Wedding, Oxfordshire, April 2014
  • The Wedding has come and gone and Blue Juice were absolutely fantastic ! Lovely people - such nice guys and everyone loved them. We have had such great compliments about them, as I think some of our younger guests dabble in music and singing, so please pass on our thanks formally to them, we made such a good choice ! Thank you for all your help prior to engaging them - you were always very prompt and efficient.

    Linda, Wedding, Essex, April 2014
  • Blue Juice made our wedding, Incredible party starters, and lovely, amiable folk, prepared to bend to unusual requests. Can't recommend these guys highly enough they were truly awesome and it was amazing to see the dance floor rocking all night long. Everyone loved them! Thanks again, Mr and Mrs P. X

    Oliver & Claire, Wedding, London, February 2014
  • Hello from Sri Lanka (what a place!). We thought you guys were totally amazing at our wedding at Skinners' Hall on Jan 25 - thank you so much! That we had a packed dance floor all night was indicative of how much of a hit you were! Just wondering if you would be able to please send us a track listing, for posterity's sake?

    Ollie, Wedding, London, January 2014
  • Me and my (now) wife had very high expectations for Blue Juice, one because we are a big fan of Motown music, and two because it was our wedding therefore we understandably wanted them to be good. I can honestly say that Blue Juice far exceeded our expectations and smashed it on the night. Their music was flawless, their performance was perfect and they were very friendly and helpful way before the wedding and on the day. I highly recommend Blue Juice, you can't go wrong with a band like this!

    Pete, Wedding, Kenilworth, September 2013
  • Blue Juice were amazing!! The band turned up with plenty of time to set up, and decided to stretch their first set out into an hour as so many people were up and dancing (including my 90 year old grandad, who never dances!). After creating a fantastic atmosphere all evening, Blue Juice even played some background music for us while packing away. Everyone who heard them play said they were one of the best bands they have ever seen at a wedding - they are even better than the sound bites on Function Central's website!
    It was important for us to find a band that was a 'full' group for the price we were paying. Many other bands had sound clips of the 8 or 10 piece group, but not of the 4 or 5 piece that we could afford to hire. All members of Blue Juice were singers as well as musicians, and the sound they created was that of an 8 piece band. I would recommend them every time!

    Lisa, Wedding, The Red Barn, Norfolk, July 2013
  • We booked Blue Juice for our wedding and could not be happier with the result. The band were absolutely incredible and everyone loved them. They arrived and set up with no hassle, and were really friendly and happy to start whenever was best for us. The music was amazing, it got everyone buzzing and out on the dance floor, exactly what we wanted! We have never seen a conga line so long! They set the perfect atmosphere for our wedding and really made the day special. If we went back and did it all again, we would book Blue Juice right away to make sure that nobody else booked them before us. We are so happy with the band, thanks for making the day so special.

    Michael and Katy, Wedding, Suffolk, May 2013
  • Blue Juice were excellent, they made the day, they were flexible with timings as dad's speech took longer than expected. They could not have done more, my friend's are hoping they will travel to Inverness for their 10 year wedding anniversary!

    Claire & Craig, Wedding, Hampshire, April 2013
  • Blue Juice were fantastic. Even better than we thought they'd be. Really made our wedding special, especially our first dance. Which they performed beautifully. From the moment they started the dance floor was never empty.

    Zoe, Wedding, Kent, March 2013
  • Blue Juice were excellent. They played two great sets and a broad range of tracks which appealed to all ages. On top of that, the guys in the band are genuinely nice people who made a real effort to make the event a special evening. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.

    Steve, Party, London, September 2012
  • Just wanted to say how pleased we were with Blue Juice's performance at our wedding on 21st September. They really got the party going and our guests really enjoyed it and have given some really good feedback! We loved the first dance song they performed for us (their own version of Lovesong by The Cure), and we appreciated them taking the time to learn this, with fairly short notice.

    Diane, Wedding, West Sussex, September 2012
  • Neither Helen nor I know too much about bands or music so when we booked Blue Juice, it was very much a 'finger in the wind' moment - but it turned out to be an excellent choice. A great wedding band, not too cliched whilst at the same time playing lots of classics that got everyone on their feet... even doing the conga(?!). Great feedback from everyone on the night - a success!

    Peter, Wedding, London, September 2012
  • The band were awesome, playing two sets filled with so many brilliantly selected and masterfully delivered tunes that the dance-floor was never anything less than buzzing. One of the best parties I've been to (ever - and that's not just weddings), and I think their version of Sweet Child of Mine might just have been better than the original! Seriously considering getting divorced just so I can book them for my next wedding...

    Jim & Erica, Wedding, Italy, August 2011
  • A musical force of nature. A band of such potent, growling virility you will want to lock up your bridesmaids. Gifted musicians and excellent people. Book 'em!

    David & Rebecca, Wedding, Somerset, July 2011
  • Blue Juice are everything you want at a wedding: professional, talented and most importantly their selection of songs was brilliant! At one point we left the dance-floor and on returning, thought that someone had started DJing, such was the quality of their playing. They had the guests (of all ages) dancing for hours. We thoroughly recommend them!"
