"Blue Groove was as professional as it gets. From showing up hours before the show for set-up and sound check, to the quality of music, Blue Groove produced!"

"Blue Groove provided just the right atmosphere for our outdoor venue.  Looking forward to their return next year!"

"Blue Groove is a great band. Fabulous musicianship across the board with a professional stage presence. Very enjoyable music. I had asked them to put together a 3 Band bill and they didn't disappoint there either. All the bands were great and a good sized supportive crowd came out to enjoy."- Keith Raney, Whiskey Junction, Minneapolis

"I also appreciated how well you communicated with me....made my job so much easier!!"

"Thank you!! Blue Groove was a perfect fit for our event!! Everyone commented on how wonderful the band sounded & yet we could still visit. The dancing energy added to our celebration!"

We really enjoyed having Blue Groove entertain at our apple orchard.  Can’t wait to have them back next year!"
