Special offer! Book within 7 days of your enquiry and get a FREE laptop DJ set performed by a band member - available with all off-season bookings (Oct - March) as well as weekdays (Sun - Fri).

Vintage classics by James Brown, The Beatles and Stevie Wonder are paired with contemporary pop and R&B floor-fillers by Blackstreet, Avicii and Shaggy for a performance that packs a punch and will appeal to guests of all age ranges and musical tastes.

The band have a quirky appeal that sets them apart from run-of-the-mill function bands. They're guaranteed to get your guests on the dancefloor and keep them there till the small hours. Or as they like to put it: "Bring a spare pair of socks 'cos we're gonna rock the first pair off!"

Blue Juice work exclusively with Function Central as one of their leading wedding bands in East Sussex, and have performed at hundreds of weddings over the last few years at local venues such as Buxted Park, Ashdown Park and Cottesmore Golf & Country Club. They were recently voted through to the final rounds of The Wedding Industry Awards 2018 (band category).

Blue Juice were fantastic and had the dancefloor full for both of their sets, even when the sun was still shining outside! Chris, Wedding at Millbridge Court, Surrey

The band’s corporate clientele includes Deloitte, Triton, Marsh & Parsons, Route Co, Price Waterhouse Coopers and Waitrose.

Blue Juice will do their utmost to tailor their performance to your exact requirements, and may even be able to learn your favourite song/first dance if they don't already play it. The band can be booked with a trumpet player for more accurate renditions of their retro soul and funk repertoire. For a nominal fee, they can provide their own DJ service (mixed songs from a laptop running virtual DJ software) to ensure a seamless night of music.

Blue Juice are Brighton-based but available to travel throughout the South and the Midlands. Book early to avoid disappointment!

“Function Central were brilliant. Nothing too much trouble, always a quick reply. The band Blue Juice exceeded our expectations. Had the dance floor filled. So many compliments from the guests! Would highly recommend.”

Charlotte, High Hurstwood Village Hall in East Sussex, September 2019

“The band were incredible - even better than we expected, they got everyone dancing and so many people commented on how good they were. Couldn’t recommend them more!”

Sarah, Wedding, Bignor Park House in West Sussex, September 2019

“The Bluejuice guys were amazing, from the first contact it was really easy to plan the performance. Their performance was incredible and all our guests loved them! We will definitely be recommending them!”

Will & Karis, Wedding, The Great House in Sonning, August 2019

“Function Central is a great one stop website with a variety of acts to choose from - we hired both our wedding ceremony act and evening band from them. There is a variety of prices and styles, and the Function Central booking staff replied promptly and clearly. The band we hired, Blue Juice, had a varied setlist ranging from older stuff to newer material, with a variety of genres including ska, soul and rock. They were able to play most of the songs we requested, they were professional and talented musicians, and happy to lend backline equipment to the groom and friends for use during the band break. The band played really well on the night and kept the guests up and dancing throughout.”

Joe, Wedding, Wilton's Music Hall in Whitechapel, August 2019

“The band was absolutely fantastic! Communication was great throughout the entire process - from booking, to discussing their set list and accommodating to some music for a surprise performance for the bride. On the night itself, the band were so friendly and flexible to the timings of the night. Their performance was INCREDIBLE, they played the music we loved and played a set list that had our guests on the dance floor, singing and dancing all night. We payed extra for the trumpet player and he was worth every penny, such a great addition. We had so many guests tell us how good the band were, would hire again for any event in future!”

Chris & Alice, Wedding, Cissbury Barns in West Sussex, August 2019
