What we’re all about.
Founded in 2012, the Blue Wave Band has been setting the industry standard for event music ever since. Our musicians are passionate about creating memorable events. Their talent and experience guarantees that every Blue Waves event is seamless, so clients can focus on life rather than stressing over the details.
Where it all began.
As students of music, studio regulars, and touring sound engineers for high profile bands, we started performing together in 2012. These gigs quickly turned into requests to perform at private events and festivals. We loved seeing the joy and full dance floors that we could bring to these events. We perfected our event planning, expanded our repertoire, added members to the band–and the rest is history!
Some Bands & Artists We’ve Performed With: Allen Stone, Gloria Estefan, Aretha Franklin, Fruit Bats, Diana Ross, Earth Wind & Fire. KC & The Sunshine Band, Paula Abdul, Phillip Phillips, Prince, Santana, Stevie Wonder, Sting...
Weddings are our jam.
There’s no better feeling than seeing the look of love on a couples face when their friends and family join them on the dance floor. That feeling is why we love what we do.
Whether you prefer traditional music, classical songs, or modern tunes, we can work with you to set the perfect tone for your day.
Start the party off right with a jazz quartet or easy listening trio to accompany your cocktail hour.
This is where we really shine - amazing dance parties are how the Blue Waves have earned their fantastic reputation! We pride ourselves on our high energy, flawless performance–it’s all about great preparation and a genuine love for what we do to ensure you have the best night of your life.
We want you to love the music!
We pride ourselves on knowing just what to play and when to play it. It isn’t enough just to fill your dancefloor–we want you to love the music! Every song from the start of the day until you drive away together as a married couple can be tailored especially for you. Or, if you prefer, just leave it all up to us.
A top-notch experience
From the moment I sent an inquiry, to the moment the band loaded out, it was a top-notch experience. I appreciated how organized and communicative the band was in the months leading up to our conference party. The songs they played were high energy and perfectly executed. They kept us all dancing for the entire party and they sounded fabulous! I wish I could package them up and take them to every conference! As a professional musician myself, my standards are high. The Blue Wave Band exceeded my expectations for excellence in every way. Sarah J., GigSalad, August 2018
We hired the Blue Wave Band for a non-profit fundraising event and they were phenomenal. The pre-communication and the band itself was terrific. We went with a 4-piece band and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Their energy is amazing! We booked them that night for next year! Diane, GigSalad, August 2018
So many people on the dance floor
These guys were awesome. I'm so glad we decided to go with them. They set-up some audio equipment in the garden so that we had music for our guests before the wedding and when my wife walked down the aisle. Then they moved into the castle and did their performance. Wow, you would not believe the range that these guys had. You name it, they played it. And it sounded amazing. The wedding venue later told us they'd never seen so many people on the dance floor dancing at the wedding. They rocked it while everyone on the dance floor danced and sang along. We really wanted everyone to have a great time at our wedding, and having Blue Wave Band there jamming was a key element to getting everyone out on the dance floor rocking out. If you are considering music options for your wedding, definitely consult with Blue Wave Band. They were the X factor at our wedding. Dave, Google, September 2018
The highlight of our day!
This band was the highlight of our day! David was great to work with throughout the planning process; always responded promptly, kindly & was very helpful! We had an acoustic guitarist play for our ceremony which was magical! The reception was a BLAST thanks to the band- they can play anything and do it well! We highly recommend Blue Wave!!

Everyone had so much fun dancing
Blue Wave Band was fantastic! We were able to watch one of their showcases and decided to book them after seeing how talented the musicians were. At the reception they blew everyone away, and we received so many compliments on the band. We opted to include a horn section for our big day and were so happy we did! They sounded amazing and everyone had so much fun dancing. Blue Wave Band also served as MC for the event and did a great job there too. Ann L., The Knot, September 2019
Everything we could have asked for and more!
Blue Wave was everything we could have asked for and more! From easy communication, special attention to details and our specific needs, spending time on the phone going over the wedding day schedule and questions to the actual wedding day music - Blue Wave was phenomenal. The live music was one of the highlights of our wedding day. We had a truly epic dance party that we wished could have lasted all night. The energy of the band members was contagious. Every single song they played was spot on to our requests and overall music preferences. We can't thank them enough for being such a huge part of our wedding. Tovah P., The Knot, September 2019
They brought the house down
The Blue Wave Band was truly one of the highlights of our wedding. We were so impressed at their showcase session that we decided to hire a 7 piece band, complete with trombone and saxophone. They brought the house down. The dance floor was packed the entire night and everyone had a great time. We also used the guitarist and female vocalist for the ceremony. The website they set up for our event was a very helpful thing to have. I would not hesitate to hire them again. Lots of fun, very talented, professional and affordable. Bonnie B., The Knot, September 2018
Such great memories
Blue Wave totally made the reception: the song choices were excellent, the musicians superb and, to top it off, the band members were so so nice! Everyone was on the dance floor all evening, from the 3-year-old ringbearer to the 80+ year old grandma. We sang and sweated and had the best time. I'm glad my husband insisted on live music. Thank you Blue Wave: you were the best investment and made such great memories for us!! Anne R., The Knot, August 2018
I am a wedding planner and have worked with Blue Wave a number of times now! They make the process so easy--they are professional, responsive and reliable! They are super talented and such a blast! Always on my recommendations list when the couple is looking for a live band! Highly recommend! Erika (Planner), Wedding Wire, August 2018
Blue Wave totally rocks!
We couldn't recommend Blue Wave more highly - they made our wedding reception a total dancefest. They absolutely blew us away the day-of. Huge range of songs and they kept people going all night. Thanks so much! Bridget F., Wedding Wire, September 2019
