    Bladdy brilliant!

    The Band really did make the evening! We have had so many comments from our guests about how ace the band were. Loads of people on the dance floor all evening and into the night! We especially loved our first dance song the band kindly learnt and put their spin on. We appreciate the time and effort of this. Thank you summed up in one word, Phenomenal! Marie was always responded so quickly to our queries and I can’t wait to see them again at my sisters wedding next year!

    The Blue Rinse's reply:

    Thanks Jen !! We still can't believe you guys were our last wedding in 2020 before the wedding lockdown! It was a great night to end on.. temporarily! We'll be back again as soon as we can, be great if you could catch us at one of our shows in the future! Congrats again guys, thanks for having us, we're really glad you enjoyed your first dance too! Marie says thanks and hi too! :)

    Postponing Perfection

    After having to postpone our wedding, we were so worried we would lose The Blue Rinse as our heart was set on them after seeing them perform at a birthday party! However, we had nothing to worry about - they were amazing and so accommodating!! They couldn't have been more understanding of our awful situation and couldn't have made it any easier. We cannot wait to celebrate with their help this August :)

    The Blue Rinse's reply:

    Thank you so much Katie for your lovely review :-) We're glad we could be of help navigating these strange times and are really looking forward to helping you celebrate at your reception in August in Oxfordshire :-) Thanks again, Marie, Martin & all TBR guys :-)

    Perfect Band for the Perfect Wedding xx

    People are still talking about how great the Blue Rinse were - made our evening!!!
    The dance floor was never empty and all band members were great
    Nothing was to much
    Having our name in lights looked fantastic all organised and supplied through The Blue Rinse.
    Would not even bother considering another band if you want a perfect end to your wedding day - player the piano for when I walked down the isle , sang our first dance and ended on our favourite song - could not of been better.

    The Blue Rinse's reply:

    Hi Guys! Thanks so much for taking some time out to place your amazing feedback! We had such a great evening and your guests and venue were fab! Thanks also for hiring the stage letter lights of your name, it looked awesome! Please spread the word, thanks for having us :) Martin, Marie and the Guys x

    Excellent, professional and accommodating.

    I saw The Blue Rinse at a wedding in 2019 and knew I had to have them at my own wedding. As I’ve had to move my wedding due to the pandemic, The Blue Rinse were so accommodating, professional and decent about moving it and it was a painless move to our new date. I can’t wait to have them perform at our ceremony next year!

    The Blue Rinse's reply:

    Thank you Harriet for your kind words :-) Now that you've hired our pianist to perform during your ceremony too, we'll look forward to helping you celebrate with throughout your day and well into the night!! Thanks again :-)

    Supportive

    You have been so supportive and flexible with our wedding postponing, especially with the long wait for the registrar confirmation. Ten days before the first lockdown you performed at my sister’s wedding and as that was the last party any of us have attended, we are so happy to have the band perform. The band made such an amazing atmosphere and really made it an event to remember, giving hope for more times like this to come.

    The Blue Rinse's reply:

    Thank you for your lovely message Annabelle! We're so happy we could help you to reschedule and are looking forward to helping you celebrate along with your family (and sister) again next May!
    Thanks again,
    Marie, Martin & all TBR guys :-)

    Fabulously Faultless!

    Good communication throughout, made the booking process so straight forward. We spoke to band during set up they were very helpful and friendly even when we made a couple of last minute requests. All guests were super happy – we had lots of great comments and more importantly the dancefloor was packed which is exactly what we wanted! (Our photographer even commented that it was the best dancefloor she had seen for a long time!) Couldn’t have asked for more! Great guys, great music & great atmosphere. Thank you!

    Just amazing! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without them!

    The Blue Rinse made everything so easy for us at a time of utter chaos. They were always available via phone or email. We could not fault anything and just feel so lucky that they were able to play on our special day. I also loved the personal touches, (the card & playlist). Just so thoughtful. Lots of comments from guests about you guys being the best band they have ever seen. Thank you for everything! Words can’t express our gratitude!!

    The Blue Rinse's reply:

    Hi Elizabeth!! Thank you soo much for you kind and awesome review! We loved playing for you guys and your friends and family partied hard!! Thanks for having us, congratulations again from us all and perhaps we may see you again at another show? TBR guys and Martin & Marie x

    Kind, personable and accommodating!

    The Blue Rinse were so understanding & helpful with all the date changes! They did all they could and more to be accommodating and work out a plan for collection when it wasn’t always straight forward.

    Thank you so much Blue Rinse - we really appreciate all your help and flexibility! We absolutely loved the sign (‘Til Death Do Us Party’ flex neon on copper frame) – it was perfect. You were so personable, kind, and friendly and we would definitely recommend!
