    The band made our day, they were absolutely fantastic! Lots of our guests were texting us for days after the wedding raving about how good the band were!

    Incredible!

    We could not have found a better band! As a musician myself the music for my wedding had to be spot on and it was! A band can really make or break your wedding day and the blue lion band definitely made the day, everyone loved them because they were on point every minute. Friendly, professional, and they got me involved, the dance floor was never empty, they really were amazing. Lots of people took their details and will definitely hire them again.

    Blue Lion Band are brilliant

    The Blue Lion band experience was superb. Right from the first enquiry, every element of the booking process was well organised and clear and the organiser, Damien, was charming and helpful throughout. We were a bit unsure about booking this type of band, without knowing who would be performing, but need not have worried as they were fantastic and played everything we asked for really well and the dancefloor was packed all evening. HIghly recommended.

    The best band to have at your wedding!

    We could not recommend The Blue Lion Band more. They were absolutely incredible. Tommy was amazing throughout even through x2 postponements and last minute change of plans due to weather, they made it all so seamless that no one even noticed.
    Our dance floor was never empty the whole night, the band played all the big songs throughout the night and even when the live sets were over, the DJ set was just as amazing. We had a lovely surprise when the lead singer started playing the saxophone as well. Bought a whole new sound to the room as well.
    All our guests have commented on the night and since the day how amazing the band were, and our venue are adding the band to their recommended band list for future couples they were so impressed.
    If we ever need a band again for any event, we would definitely use The Blue Lion band without a doubt. We can’t thank them enough for helping to make our day so special and ending our evening reception with such a high.

    Incredible Band!!

    This band were absolutely fantastic. I’m
    not exaggerating when I say the dance floor was full ALL night! They did three sets of 45mins which got better and better. Communication was brilliant throughout the process. We went for a 6 piece band with a sax which I would thoroughly recommend, but there were bigger and smaller options if you prefer. We had so many comments about how fantastic they were, they really
    made our wedding extra special. I would
    whole heartedly recommend!

    Brilliant band - highly recommended

    The Blue Lion band were absolutely sensational. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. The dance floor was full from start to finish (which is exactly what we wanted) and all of our guests remarked on how good they were. They absolutely nailed our first dance, and spent the rest of the evening smashing the gig. FIVE STARS

    Hire these guys for an unforgettable night !

    We recently had the Blue Lion Band at our wedding. I cannot overstate the supreme quality of their music, their utmost professionalism, their unbelievable value for money, or the incredible atmosphere they provided. I can honestly say that they were the most important single piece of the puzzle that day , and easily the most memorable to our guests. Dessie was the absolutely lovely gentleman we interacted with as our point of contact. We were very tight for time but he never made us feel that we were putting him under pressure. I asked him to help me with a surprise for my wife and her did it gladly. In fact, I was shocked on the day to see that Dessie was an incredible drummer and vocalist, and his performance for our surprise song gave us all goosebumps. We were just so happy with the vocalists and instrumentalists and we will never ever forget these guys. We are very grateful to them and always will be. Hire this band if you want professional but easy going individuals who can really get the party started but also provide whatever atmosphere or vibe you want. You will not regret hiring the Blue Lion Band.

    Thank you so much!

    Chris & Blue Lion Band!!! What can we say but WOW!!! We really had the best wedding day ever and you really helped bring the evening to life and turned it in to the party that we had always dreamt of!! The dance floor was always full – thanks to your amazing music, but also you choosing the best songs to do at what points to keep us all going!! Your website that had a page dedicated to us really helped us to tell you what it is we really love and then you ringing to go through it with us made us so excited and we knew we were in safe hands. We have had so many compliments about how amazing you were since our day. You accommodated the needs of the venue and the sound limiter without any issue – we didn’t even notice!! It removed all stress for us. You also made us feel like it was all about us as you were really flexible with the schedule to fit around our sparkler photos outside. We are SO pleased that we not only booked you, but we upgraded to the 6 piece! We will make sure we come and see you at rehearsals again soon! Lots of Love, Mr & Mrs Wynn xxxx

    Perfect day, partied all night!

    We were so happy with the Blue Lion Band - at first we were only going to have a dance band for the end of the reception, but we have no regrets that we ended up having a full day of music! We had a small private ceremony so chose a solo piano player, who also sang beautifully. I walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of "A Thousand Years" and then had "Ave Maria" to end - exactly what we'd imagined. At the reception a jazz trio played while the guests had cocktails, and then for our entry we had the full band play "Signed Sealed Delivered". That might've been a little over the top, but it was so much fun! It was amazing how many different styles they could play, I couldn't believe it was the same girl singing like an angel at the ceremony and then belting out all the party songs. Damien was really helpful going through the schedule and planning the music with us. The music made our day so much more special, thank you!
