These guys were great!

April 5, 2016

Very good. We had a full to overflowing dance floor all night! Great band, nice guys to deal with. Would definitely recommend and we have had good feedback from our guests too.

The band did an amazing job at our wedding. Everything ran so smoothly and they made sure everyone had a good time. We all danced the night away thanks t the bands music selection and energy. I would highly recommend them!

Blue Lion Band were the most perfect addition to our wedding day! From the minute we saw them at their showcase in Newcastle we knew that they were the band for us! The enquiry and planning stages couldn’t have gone smoother – all questions and queries of ours were answered timely and put us at ease, helping to eliminate any unnecessary wedding stresses! And the band on the night were fabulous – from playing our first dance, to the live sets and even the playlists in between we couldn’t have asked for more! Would definitely recommend to add that little bit extra to your wedding!

June 28, 2017

We used the band for a company social event, but there were comments on what a great band they would be for a wedding. They were so easy to contact and were more than happy to cater for some last minute requests. The evening went perfectly and we couldn’t have asked for more. We chose the 6 piece band which created a great atmosphere.

We booked Blue Lion (8 piece) for our country wedding and it was one of the best decisions! They were incredible! The dancefloor was full all night with the band playing to what our guests wanted to dance to. The brass element added something a bit special to a regular band and our guests loved it. Everything from start to finish was stress-free and easy to organise. Would highly recommend.

November 16, 2017

They were fantastic! Really discreet when setting up, did a great job with the music and had a lot of really happy guests raving about them. Loved that everyone got stuck in with the evening, some nice surprise photo booth pics and the addition to the signed set list in the card box was really sweet. Thank you so much for fantastic evening of entertainment.

December 4, 2017

Whole band are fab! Really detailed information prior to booking/really helpful throughout planning and perfect on the night! All our family and friends loved it, as did we! Good value for money – we almost doubled our original budget to go with Blue Lion Band and then to go for 6 piece rather than just 5 but was all worth it! More expensive than other bands out there but would definitely recommend! Every question answered in detail via phone/email! Loved it! The BEST day ever! We loved every minute of our day! Thank you!

This band absolutely rocked our wedding! They are exceptionally talented, flexible and they know how to keep the dance floor full all night. We had an 8 piece band and the horn section really added to the sound and the repertoire of songs played. Pre-planning with Damien was a breeze, and this meant on our wedding day we knew everything music related was completely under control. The music was one of the most memorable and most commented on aspects of our special day. Thanks guys!

December 13, 2017

We booked Blue Lion for a corporate event in Newcastle and they were fantastic! Throughout the lead up to the event they were very friendly, professional, organised and quite frankly put me at ease. We had decided to go with a 5 piece band which suited our event of just over 200 people very well. The band listened to all of our wants/needs and put on a lively, fun and high quality performance! They engaged with our guests whilst on stage and had lots of people up dancing – Great band and would certainly recommend!

December 13, 2017

AMAZING!!! We were so happy with you guys, you made our wedding perfect. Thank you so much!

December 18, 2017

We’d like to say a big thank you for Blue Lion’s performance at our wedding on 16th September at Temple Newsom Leeds,

It seems like an age ago now but so many people commented on how amazing you guys were – stand out moment for me was when there was a power cut and the brass took full advantage to show case their talent!

I’ve given loads of guests your email address so hopefully you’ll get some more business.

March 18, 2018

Blue Lion played the evening reception of our wedding in Liverpool and we couldn’t have been happier with their performance. Neil was happy to guide us with song selections ahead of the big day and the 5 piece band kept the dance floor packed throughout the evening. We would highly recommend the band for any event.

April 8, 2018

Brilliant. Can’t fault them. Made a great atmosphere, engaged with guests, a truly great party. And they did some amazing live calypso!

April 21, 2018

Absolutely brilliant band, made our wedding party. They played some of our favourite songs on request, including an excellent rendition of our first dance. 3 weeks later and people are still talking about how great the band were. Highly recommend.

May 1, 2018

Absolutely FANTASTIC! We couldn’t recommend them enough. Their service from day one was both friendly and efficient; not to mention how brilliant their playing was. We still have guests telling us how amazing they were 4 weeks later! Thank you Blue Lion Band!

May 15, 2018

Booked these guys for our wedding after having seen them play a couple of times and they are amazing!
They are really accommodating and their interaction with the guests was great! Plus super talented, I would recommend them to anyone!

May 22, 2018

Superb! From the initial discussions, through to the song selections, we enjoyed the laid back and easy communications as we concentrated on other aspects of the wedding. We felt as though everything was taken care of, but also that we could be as laid-back or as involved as we wanted.
Chris was a delight to deal with, my fiancee got to visit a showcase in Cambridge and send me the videos while I was working abroad.
We opted for a small cocktail band after the ceremony and then a six-piece in the evening. The dance floor was never empty!
We found the Blue Lion Band easy to deal with, good value for money and thoroughly entertaining, nothing but great comments from our Guests on the evening and after….

June 16, 2018

Excellent band. A 4 piece played for us on our wedding day. They worked with the venue brilliantly with the set up and were amazing on the night.

The Blue Lion band were simply incredible! They had everyone up on their feet dancing including my 87 year old grandad! We couldn’t get him to sit down he was loving the band so much. They were so accommodating with learning songs for us and replied to all out questions very quickly which was perfect. Our first dance song was already very special to us but now it is even more so. Thank you Thank you thank you .

Incredible! They did a couple of stripped back 3 piece sets outside as background music during drinks and canapes, and then a full 8 piece performance as their main sets after dinner. Both versions of the band were sensational – we had such good feedback from our guests about both. Communication before the day was fantastic as well, as was their setup. We never had to worry about their quality or professionalism. Book these guys now!

Tom Dean
July 16, 2018

Amazing. Really professional, all the guests all loved the quality and variety of music. If you’re looking for a wedding band, definitely go to one of their showcases and check them out – you won’t be disappointed.

July 22, 2018

We had the Blue Lion Band play at our wedding at the beginning of the month, and we are still so impressed and happy with their performances on the day. We were lucky to have them perform our ceremony, drinks reception, and evening reception; with a full day of great music we are still hearing rave reviews from our friends and family about how it was “the best music they have ever experienced at a wedding”. Ed was so easy to work with, and made us feel confident on the lead up to the day that they would handle all of our requests with ease, and they did not leave us disappointed. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

My husband and I hired The blue lion band for our wedding. I couldn’t fault CiCi and the band leading up to the wedding and had such an amazing day and night. CiCi and the band were so accommodating to the movements of our guests that they changed the order of the sets on the spot (after discussing with my self) and everyone had such a brilliant time. I would love to organise another party and hire them again! 100% recommend for their professionalism, charisma and talent. So many great comments from our guests regarding the band and CiCi’s amazing voice.

Charlotte Trail

Blue Lion were an excellent addition to our day. They communicated well prior to the wedding and all my queries were answered quickly and professionally. The band on the night were fantastic and had all our guests on the dancefloor. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Many thanks!

The Blue Lion band were incredible. We found them at a wedding fayre. We were a little bit nervous as we only went to the London showcase so hadn’t heard the Cambridge band perform just the London group. We didn’t need to worry, they were amazing. We couldn’t fault them. Our playlist in between when they were playing wouldn’t work as we hadn’t made it offline, but they had that covered. The planning before was brilliant and they answered every tiny question/worry we had. One thing I’ll remember about our wedding was that the dance floor was never empty and that’s down to the great music from a great band.

August 26, 2018

U could not have asked for more from this band. From the very beginning they went above and beyond. They responded very quickly to emails and gave us fantastic advice. Every request we had they did without hesitation. They sourced Greek music for us between sets and spent a lot of time going through details of the day with us. Chris in particular is a God send and really helped relieve some of the stress of wedding planning.
Our first dance was amazing thanks to them. Through the whole night they had people on the dance floor and created the perfect party atmosphere. Everyone complimented us on the band. Massive thanks to them for being part of our day and helping to make it extra special!

September 2, 2018

We couldnt have asked for anything better…from the invite to see and meet the band at rehearsals until the final song at our wedding! They are so organised and you wont need to worry about a thing. Following one conversation with Ed we knew we were in safe hands. The dance floor was never empty right from the first song and so many of our guests gave great feedback. Thanks again to them for being a part of our day 🙂

Blue Lion Band were incredible from start to finish. They seemed to get our wedding vibe from the get go and had us covered with all the madness but also the extra sentimental bits of the wedding reception. Communication was golden from the very start, making the run up so much more relaxing. It felt on the day we were welcoming more wedding guests rather than our band, so personal, friendly and up for a bloody good time! These guys are not just “another wedding band”….. they really made our night into everything it needed to be. Thank you, Thank you. Em & Milky

Blue Lion Band were absolutely fantastic at our wedding – they made the night. From the planning stage right through the day itself, they were organised, extremely professional and I couldn’t have asked for any more in a wedding band. Would highly recommend them. If you would like to have incredibly talented musicians, with an outstanding repertoire, who know how to get your party started, book Blue Lion Band!

Lauren Jones

The Blue Lion Band were incredible! Ed was brilliant to work with when planning our day and the music to be played. The sets were energetic and everyone spent the night on the dance floor. They even learned particular songs for us that went down a treat with us and our guests.
If you’re looking for a high quality band – Blue Lion is the one to choose!

September 12, 2018

Blue Lion Band made our wedding a total blast. The vibe all night was great with a full dance floor. They played all types of music to suit everybody. We had so many positive comments from our guests about the fantastic atmosphere! Chris who manages the band responded quickly to messages and communication was easy. Having a band planning page was great where we could add on song requests and comments about the timings of the night. Going to see them play initially was defiantly worth it, as we got a feel of what size band and instruments we wanted, we went for a 5 piece. We would highly recommend this band for a wedding where the couple wants a full, high energy dance floor taking their celebrations well into the night!!

We had a 6piece blue lion band for our wedding evening entertainment! They were just amazing! Every song had all our guests dancing! People kept commenting on how great they were. It really was a Perfect night. They even played our first dance for us which was so great to have live! I loved having so many different singers as the drummer and guitarist took turns on the mic, as well as the amazing Hayley who blew everyone’s shoes off with her performance of big party hits! The flip flop box was empty as everyone just wanted to carry on dancing. Couldn’t have asked for a better band so professional and easy to work with.

We first bumped into the band at a wedding fair, and were really impressed when we later went to a showcase of theirs – hearing the band live before choosing gave us loads more confidence in them, compared to just hearing snippets of songs from bands online.

Neil, who was our main contact throughout the process, is brilliant. Professional, helpful and reassuring – just what you need when you’ve a million things to organise for your big day. Neil made us feel at ease every step of the way, and we felt we could trust him to put together an excellent set, which he absolutely did. The band operate some planning online, where you get your own webpage to put up information like song requests, logistics, contact numbers etc., and we found it really useful to have all that info in one place where we could check and change things at a glance. Neil was fantastic for keeping in contact with us, and making time for our enquiries so we never felt out of the loop.

The Blue Lion Band were absolutely professional on the day, completing their set-up and sound checks around the other things going on, and the performance was outstanding. It was so clear that our preferences, song requests etc., had been taken into consideration, and while we didn’t select every song in the set, we felt the overall performances were a near perfect reflection of the music we and our families love – a great mix of motown, soul, pop, and indie kept everyone dancing all night.

Lastly, the band also sorted out the music between sets. We organized our own playlists, split into sections, and the band made sure that as soon as they were finished with a set, our playlists went on. Seems a small thing, but having a good flow to the live music and playlists, and being able to leave that in the hands of the performers ensured the whole evening entertainment ran smoothly.

We would absolutely recommend Blue Lion Band to anyone planning a big event – the planning and prep is professional, flexible and the band are happy to work around what you want to get out of the day, including where pricing is concerned. The performers at our wedding were so talented and energetic, really brought the celebrations to life, and we’ve had so many compliments on the band, we wouldn’t hesitate to get in touch with them again for another event.

September 29, 2018

What can I say – from the moment you contact the band for a quote to advice payment everything is professional and you efficient- I got a bit frightened after listening to a horror story about a band they had that sounded terrible – I can honestly say if I had all the money in the world I would not have changed my decision to have the Blue Lion band they are amazing and Sam who done our vocals ALL day had the most amazing voice and was amazing with my little 3 year old boy who took a shine to her – if you are thinking of getting a band please do not hesitate to have these guys – amazing !!!!

Anthony, I just wanted to send an email to say a big thank you to you and the band! You were all amazing!! The guests raved about how good the band were and I certainly had an amazing time dancing.

Our first dance song was perfect and so much fun! We really enjoyed it and the guests did too. Thank you for also playing my special requests, my MOH loved shut up and dance! That meant a lot!

Anyways I would certainly recommend the band to everyone! Thank you again, Anthony! The Blue Lion Band were the perfect addition to our wedding!

We just want to thank you all for last Saturday night, it was superb.

Asking you guys to put a Latin twist on things was a gamble as we hadn’t heard you do such a thing. But you absolutely nailed it and everybody loved it; exactly what we wanted. We also want to thank you for your awesome rendition of El Cuarto De Tula. Mine and Rachel’s highlight by a mile.

We couldn’t recommend you guys more.

October 3, 2018

Best band ever! We went for the 8 piece band which was just amazing! All our guests said they were the best band they had ever heard, and they kept the dance floor full all night long! The booking and planning process was really simple, and Ed was on hand to answer any questions we had. We didn’t have to worry about a thing which made the day run so smoothly and hassle free. If you want a fun and highly professional band book these guys now! we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding band!

October 14, 2018

Fantastic band who really gave us the perfect finish to our wedding day. Everyone was one the dance floor! Totally coincidentally they were also the band at a friends wedding the weekend after ours and were amazing all over again!
Came across them online and went to see one of their preview shows in the midlands which was great. Booked them and Vij supported us throughout all the lead-up ‘admin’ which was a great relief as there were plenty of things we hadn’t thought of. All in all a great experience. Can’t recommend them enough.

The Blue Lion Band were superb at our wedding. They took everything we had suggested and incorporated the tracks into the sets, giving us a truly personal musical experience. The dance floor was always full! They are top class musicians and top class people to work with – very easy and very accommodating.

Booking Blue Lion Band was the best decision we made for our Wedding Reception 🙂 As soon as we watched there live showcase we knew had to book them and so we went with an 8 Piece. I was slightly nervous as I knew at an Indian wedding this may not be everyone’s cup of tea and we did also have a DJ in between sets… However the band absolutely smashed it they were EPIC! From a lively entrance song they sang to our romantic first dance, they had everybody on that dance floor all night long and everyone is still talking about the band! We chose the playlists we wanted form 700’s, 80’s 90’s and contemp, but what they did on the night was way beyond our expectations they joined us all on the dance floor , sang with the crowd, improvised the tracks and they even hit an old garage set which was the icing on the cake for me it was so personalised to us! Hayley and Deeliah killed it with their vocals, so much soul and fire, and we also had Adam on the guitar and MIC who was so versatile singing rock tunes to Maxi Priest! The service from Dessie from the get go was amazing, we had no stress and he was very accommodating, it was all extremely professional and organised and ran so smoothly on the night. Of course we want any excuse now to hire them again and so do all our guests! We honestly believe they made our wedding one to remember for all our guests, and made our wedding day very special and unique for me and Sukh 🙂 They are worth every single penny and I would highly recommend them they will bring the best vibe to any event. We can’t wait to book them again- Thanks a million to the extremely talented blue lion band – we love you 🙂

To say these guys were incredible at our wedding would not give them the credit they deserve!! The dance floor was packed all night, which was exactly what we hoped for! They are all so talented, the music was perfect and I just wish we could do it all again! I have to give Tommy, Grace & Ben a special mention as they were just amazing! It was exactly what we were looking for and we could not have asked for a better band for our day. If you are looking for an upbeat, dance floor-filling band for your wedding day, I can’t recommend Blue Lion Band enough! Thank you!

March 10, 2019

We had Blue Lion for our wedding in January the 6 piece option. The band were incredible, our guests have said they thought they were attending a gig it was so good. The dance floor was never empty and they knew just what to play to keep everyone happy. Would thoroughly recommend, they completely enhanced the atmosphere.

April 27, 2019

Blue Lion Cambridge band were simply FAB. We saw the London guys and then dashed to Cambridge to see what they were like, with a view to booking, which we did soon after! Everyone loved the sets and they kept people on the dance floor. The band were super in the run up to the wedding and played our first dance – a real bonus. THANK YOU for being part of our special day.

May 4, 2019

We had the blue lion band for our wedding last month. They were absolutely amazing!!! They played Jewish horse for us which was fantastic and they had the dance floor full the entire night! I am so pleased we chose them and would certainly recommend them! We had the 6 piece band…. amazing!!!

Look no further for a wedding band that will surpass all your expectations!
We got married in italy and Blue Lion band made the night absolutely awesome! From the first contact with Damien to the very last song the whole experience was fantastic. Damien was exceptionally helpful arranging everything. We went for the 5 piece band option with a male abs female singer (definitely recommended) 3 band members flew out to the venue and 2 lived locally. Damien sorted a speaker and mic for our ceremony music outside and even a playlist for when the band were finished to close the night. My wife looked and hundreds of band before deciding to go with a Blue Lion and I can’t recommend these guys enough. They are a progressional exceptionally talented group – very reasonably priced for the service and quality and professionalism. If you are lucky enough to come across these guys and they are available for your event – don’t think twice – book then immediately – they are the best!

We got married last month and had a saxophone and acoustic guitar for our afternoon cocktail hour and a 6 piece band with Chris as our lead vocalist. From the moment I contacted them after seeing them at a wedding fayre they were a dream to work with. Tommy was amazing at answering our questions and giving us ideas. We went to see the band play in Cambridge and we were sold there and then. They played wonderwall by oasis as our first dance and from then until the last song the dance floor was full. We would highly recommend them and everyone at the wedding said how amazing they were. Thankyou to you all!!

July 20, 2019

The band is the one thing I knew I didn’t have to worry or stress about. From using this portal to speaking to Ed prior, I felt completely comfortable that they knew what they were doing and I didn’t need to give it another thought. I cannot rate them high enough. And the band themselves were exceptional on the night. Everyone was on the dancefloor and we had so many comments. I can’t thank Ed and the band enough.

We wanted to to say a BIG thank you to Dessie and rest of the Blue Lion Band for their amazing presence on the day.

You guys were phenomenal!! We loved every minute of each set and were so impressed (we knew you guys were great having seen you at Zigfrid Von Underbelly), but this was just above and beyond that – WOW!

Thank you so much for creating such an amazing atmosphere on the dance floor and the quartet during the reception were brilliant too.

All our guests have made a point of telling us how brilliant you and the band were – some even stated that you guys were the best wedding band they had ever seen!!

We are so grateful to Dessie and the rest of the band for all their hard work throughout the process. It was a pleasure to work with you Dessie and thank you for being so accommodating for our various plans and questions. Dessie was always available to answer our questions and discuss our ideas at any time. For this and for making our music vision come to life, we genuinely cannot thank you enough.

We love that a couple of your band members got involved in our photobooth too and were just so fun on the day.

We can’t rate this band highly enough and would 100% recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band.

Thank you so much

Love Ben and Jas

These guys were so professional and we had such a brilliant night. The brass section were amazing. Everything went so smoothly- from run-up to on the day itself. They even played our requested first dance song live- perfect! Would not hesitate to recommend them.

The blue lion band were great. You could choose how many members you want and to suit a certain sound. Communication with the band beforehand was very easy, all questions were answered and the band arranged set-up with the venue without too much help from us (which is great when you have so much stuff to think about!). On the night, Tommy was great, anticipating when things needed to be done but going with what we wanted. The dance floor was packed the whole night, I think everyone had a great time!

August 26, 2019

Hiring them for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. They did an amazing job and really helped to make the night so much fun as it was; they are also really nice, and a good value too considering their professionalism and talent. I will recommend them to everyone I know, and definitely will use them again if I need live music at an event in the future.

Book this band for your wedding and you won’t be dissapointed!! They compleatly made the night for us, the atmosphere was amazing and every single one of our guests was up on the dance floor. They have such an amazing song variety that suits everyone and are just amazing at really building great vibes and getting everyone up!

Couldn’t have asked for a better band, they were absolutely worth every penny and were totally incredible. I asked for mainly Motown and 60’s and they played a brilliant mix. One month on from my wedding and everyone who was there are still talking about them! Would 110% recommend as everything was brilliant from enquiry to on the day to after my wedding.

I cannot rate this band any higher. Their professionalism, musicianship and performance were outstanding.

Their manager was always in contact during the run up to our wedding, making sure that everything was going to plan.

As a musician myself, I couldn’t rate the band any higher.

If you’re serious about the live music offering in your event, these are the guys you need. They are nothing but 100% professional throughout the entire process, from their very first interaction with you all the way through to the end of your event. We were hooked from the first song we heard them play at one of their rehearsal sessions. Being a musician myself I’m very fussy when it comes to music at events (bad sound / too noisy, dodgy covers, poor musicianship etc) but I knew we could have complete confidence in Blue Lion – they have an abundance of raw talent and musicianship, and crucially they back this up with professionalism, logistical management, excellent customer service and communications.
The dance floor at our wedding was packed for the entire evening -Blue Lion definitely know how to please a crowd. Without Blue Lion our wedding day would not have been as memorable and enjoyable as it was. I’m already trying to think of other excuses to hire them (not another wedding, obviously!)

April 4, 2020

Blue Lion Band performed at our wedding in March and we couldn’t have been any happier with how it went. The communication in the lead up to the day was great and they really took the time to understand our likes and dislikes. The dancefloor was full from their first doing to their last and we had loads of guests come up to us on the night to say how great the band were. We would highly recommend!!
