We can’t thank you and your team enough for the most incredible night on Saturday. You were all fabulous. We just so appreciated your professionalism, communication, attire and incredible talent. The music was exactly what we had hoped for and even better that what we listened to on your website. You gave us so much more than what we expected. We have had so many positive compliments from our friends, the only regret being that we only had you playing for 4 hours!! Wish the evening could have been longer.
“Dear Sarah, Michael and the rest of the Blue Velvet crew,
We’d like to thank you for setting a beautiful mood at our wedding party. It wouldn’t have been the same without you, and all the great tunes.”
