I couldn't have asked for any more
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!
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 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 definitely worth it, as we got a feel of what size band and instruments we wanted. 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!!
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.
Brilliant to work with
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!
The band were perfect. We hired them for our daughters wedding in August and because they were so good we re-hired them for our annual Christmas dinner/dance. 100% would use them again.
Rocked our wedding!
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!
Atmosphere was fab
We just wanted to say a massive thank you to Anthony and the band for an amazing day with regards to the music throughout, the atmosphere was fab in the evening and nice and chilled during the day. Anthony was a great help from the day of our initial enquiry right through to the end of the night. We’d thoroughly recommend these guys to anyone.
An excellent addition to our day
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 dance floor. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Many thanks!
Our family and friends loved it!
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 - was all worth it! 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!
Kept the dance floor packed
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.
