Words from our past clients

Rachel H, San Francisco

Perfection! Great independent music selection, very professional look and sound, and very easy to work with. Would definitely recommend for any social or professional event.

Sally Ann, Sausalito

Garuda Blue was very accommodating in playing the music selections of our choice as well as having an impressive list of their own selections covering a range of jazz, swing, R&B danceable tunes. We communicated by email regularly to be sure all plans were on track. They were on time, dressed appropriately and many guests commented on their excellent performance. Nearly all guests was up dancing, making it a wonderfully fun event. We highly recommend them as a classy, professional, swing dance band, and we appreciate being able to hear one another talk at the dinnertime while they played their cool jazz. Thank You.

Carl B, San Francisco

Garuda Blue knew exactly what to do. Very little direction needed. Great players – they learned 2 songs for our processional and recessional at our wedding and even learned the “Chicken Dance” on-the-fly for my 3-year old niece to dance to! We got lots of compliments on the music at our wedding! Thanks guys!

Heather C, San Francisco

We really enjoyed working with Abe to prepare for our upcoming wedding. He was open to special requests, and was easygoing throughout the whole process! Having them play jazz during dinner was a huge success, our guests loved the added ambiance. I also loved that during the reception, they were able to play a variety of pop and other dance songs to suit the vibe at any given moment on the dance floor. We received so many compliments that I highly recommend Garuda Blue to anyone considering them for their event!

Chris Y, San Francisco

Abe was so responsive and professional. I just gave him a few artists names and he took care of the rest

Katie, SoCal

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.
