Terry,
 
You were all more than wonderful! We couldn't have chosen a better band! I keep hearing from guests how great you were and how they loved not only what a great singer Jenny was but also what a great emcee she was! She is SO personable and kept the crowd wrapped around her little finger :-)

We have just returned from our honeymoon and we've hit the ground running since we got back. Please know that we were ALL thrilled to have you be a part of that night. I mean, did you see how much I was I was on the dance floor?????? Haha!!!

Thanks again for everything. If you're ever playing in Memphis or find yourselves in El Dorado again, give me a hollar!!! :-)

Terry,
 
Thank you for being a part of our wonderful evening.  The weather was gorgeous and everything was just perfect. The only problem I had was that the time went by way too fast.  It's really special that your band played at both my daughter's weddings. 
 
I saw my neighbor this morning and she was telling me how great the band was.  I will definitely recommend you to anybody that's looking for a special and memorable event.
 
Thank you again - Our family loves your band!!

Hi Terry,
 
I wanted to tell you what a great time we had at Louisiana Castle. The band was absolutely wonderful & very professional. We could not have chosen a more suitable group for our wedding reception. The songs and the music were truly amazing.
 
Thanks,

Hi Terry,
 
Well, EVERYONE had a blast...believe me.  You may get some calls from a few of the guests that need a band for upcoming events.  My big day was everything and more that I wanted it to be...PERFECT...and your band is one of the main reasons.  I had so much fun; I didn't want the night to end.  Thank you for making it so special and fun!!!! 
 
I will definitely recommend your band to everyone!

"Incredible! These guys are great! They played great songs and kept everyone dancing. On top of that, they are SO affordable! I couldn't believe it when they quoted me their price!" - JoAnna Krawczya on Wedding Mapper

 
 
Hi Terry,
 
Everything was really great, the tempo to the Father/Daughter dance was perfect. All our guests reported that they loved the band. My only regret is that my husband and I couldn't stay outside to dance and enjoy the music for much of the time as we had to go around and mingle and greet everyone. Thank you all for helping make Elizabeth and Justin's special night even more special.

You guys ROCK!                                              03/23/09
 
Steve and I want to thank you for putting on such a great show at our wedding reception!  All of our friends and family can't stop talking about how much fun they had.  They all want to know, "Where did you find the band?"  Who knew that we could find such a wonderful band over the internet!  We couldn't have asked for anything better!  YEAH! 
 
Thanks Again, Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Baldobino

 

 

 

Terry,                                                                03/18/09

 

I cannot begin to tell you how much fun we had at the wedding. I have to be honest - when Kelly told me she hired you from the Internet - I was a little worried.  But, she could not have made a better choice! I don't know a lot about music - played clarinet in the band in high school - but I do know when I hear something I like. You all were great, had a lot of energy and really knew how to get the crowd involved. All of our guests had a wonderful time.  All night I kept hearing great comments about your band. I would certainly recommend you to anyone. 

 

Thank you again for such a great night and one we will remember forever.  Please relay to the band how much fun we had and how much we enjoyed The Something Blue Band.

 

Sincerely,

Jo Ann Ryan

We cannot say enough to express our satisfaction with Something Blue Band! They are an outstanding band! So professional, and they knew just how to make the evening fun!! Their sound is great, and the vocals fantastic. Our guests had a ball. Could not have had a more perfect choice for our daughter's wedding. The bride and groom were absolutely thrilled!
 
Thank you, Cheryl and Franz Messerli

Hi Terry,
 
I hope the band had as good a time at our reception as we had!!  We enjoyed you all so much.  Y'all were great!!  The songs were perfect and I don't believe we ever had an empty dance floor!!  I appreciate you coming to play and be a part of our special day.  Everyone loved your band and I'm recommending you to all my friends and family!!

Terry,
 
You guys did a tremendous job!  We were a little anxious as we hadn't heard you in person before but were both relieved and pleased.  I thought the mix of songs and the performance were great.  Roxanne and I were especially impressed with your renditions of "Make You Feel My Love" and "Have A Little Faith."  It meant a lot that you were able to get these down so well in such a short amount of time and we both thought you nailed them.  Several of our other guests have also commented about how great you guys were.  I would have no problem recommending your band--please let me know if I can talk to any prospective clients on your behalf in the future.
 
Thanks for making our wedding that much better,

Hey Terry,
 
We loved your band and I am glad I was able to find and hire you
for the dance.  Thanks for helping with the spotlight.  Everyone had a wonderful time.  We got some great feedback from the other chapters.  One person in another chapter said it was the best band she remembers for the ball...ever.

Hi Terry,
 
Thanks so much for all your hard work. It really was a pleasure to deal with such professionals. You were quick to respond to ALL my questions and never hesitated to provide what we needed. John and Karen wanted their friends to have a great time and thanks to the band we all did. Your music selection was excellent. We also appreciate your working the spotlight for our introductions...it was cool. I will certainly recommend your group to anybody who wants the BEST band in Mississippi.
 
Thank You,
Ellie McDonald

Mr. Terry and the Something Blue Band,
 
    Just wanted to shoot you a quick email to say thank you so much for making the reception so much fun!  So many things went wrong with the planning and I had strep throat on the actual wedding day....so it was a huge relief to get to the reception and have everything just be perfect!  Ya'll were WONDERFUL!!!  I hate that I didn't get a chance to say Hi and thank you in person....but the whole reception was just a blur.  All my family and friends said that they really enjoyed yall, and one of my friends that is planning her own wedding asked me for your information-- so hopefully I got you a little extra business!!  Thanks again, and God Bless.

The band was GREAT!   Everyone had a wonderful time.  We got plenty compliments on the band and music selection!  It rained the whole day but it didn't put a damper on the party. Please thank the band members again for us and let them know how much we enjoyed them!

When you get a chance please send me a calendar of the bands gigs in the coming weeks or months.  We'd like to come and relax and listen to some good music!

Thanks once again for all of your help and I surely will be recommending “Something Blue" to anyone looking for a band!

Hi Terry,

 

Everyone had a great time! 

You guys were great; and Sandy was great with the 'MC' duties. 

I'll let Will know he could pursue a second career if his day job doesn't work out.

 

Thank you for helping make it a memorable day for all.

 

Cheers,

Hey Terry,

 I wanted to thank you on behalf of LIndsey and I both for doing such a wonderful job!!  Besides being so hot outside, the reception was a blast!!  I believe everybody had a great time.  A lady that works at our firm, Angela Beasley, especially had a great time.  I gave her all of your information and it sounds like they have booked you for this summer in Jackson, MS for her wedding.  How wonderful?!?!  Maybe we will get to personally thank you then. 

Thanks again and we both look forward to seeing/hearing the band with a little less stress on our shoulders!!

Terry!
 
What an INCREDIBILE band. We could not have had a better band play at our wedding. The dance floor was crowded the entire night. What a great variety of music, you guys interacted very well with the guests. What an amazing voice Jenny has.

Terry,

 

Just a quick thank you for a fantastic job Friday evening.  We have had numerous comments how wonderful the party and band were.  It seems to rank as one of the best ever hosted by LUBA.

 

We have your information on file for future functions and thanks again.

Hey Terry,
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding.  We had soooooo much fun!  Y'all were awesome.  Thank you for learning our Carol King song.  It was great and really meant a lot to us.
We will tell everyone who is looking for a band about you too. 
There were some good pictures of the band that you can view on the photographers website at braydanielle.com.  Go under wedding-online proofs-Nov 26 Kacee and Brady's wedding.
 
Thanks again!

Thanks so much Terry.  Many of the bands who play here are not the easiest to work with, but you all are so kind and pleasant (not to mention talented!), and we are happy to recommend you.  I appreciate the contact information… Anyway, we will keep sending brides your way and I appreciate the return favor.

I look forward to seeing you guys very soon.

 Dear Terry,

            Please accept this note as a sincere expression of my thanks and appreciation for an outstanding job by your band’s performance at our wedding reception November 27th at The Woman’s Club.  When I began planning our wedding, I was unable to find a band to play Thanksgiving weekend.  After several unsuccessful phone calls, someone gave me your name and suggested that I call you.  Working on strictly blind faith, I was unable to meet with you prior to the event and booked the entire engagement via e-mail. 

            The night of the wedding arrived and I must be honest and tell you that I had not even had time to worry about the music.  (All I remember from our e-mail exchanges was that the repertoire of your songs seemed like what we were interested in having at our reception.)  Beginning with the first song and until the very last, you met and far exceed any expectations I had in a band.  You managed to get people on the dance floor from the very beginning of the event and left the crowd cheering for more at the end of the night.

            Everyone I have talked to who attended has raved about Something Blue and I have had several people e-mail and call since that night with a request for your information.  

            Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding such a fabulous and memorable event. 

 

You will have any future business of mine for entertainment.   

                                                            Best Regards, 

                                                            Chandel McDonald

Terry,
 
Thank you for everything! We really had a blast. Even my Grandparents danced..twice. My dad had seen your band at another reception and insisted we booked you. I have to admit I was a little leary, I didn't really trust my dad's taste in music. But, your band played everything. You did a great job in catering to all the age groups. We all loved it when you got the kids got up to "jam". I thought the end of the night was just perfect with all of our friends tearing up the dancefloor. The guys even did the "gator", sorry! Again, thank you so much. You really made our reception the party and celebration I always wanted.

Dear Sandy,

 

I wanted to thank you all for providing us with wonderful music for Brad and Amy’s wedding. Everyone had a GREAT time! You were amazing at the wedding and Ava Maria is my favorite. I know it was kind of crazy and I thank you for all your help and making things run smoothly. I will call you with the date for Rachel and we’ll do it again.

 

Thank you so much,

Linda and Brian Dupree

Dear Terry,
 
I just wanted to email and tell you how entertaining your band was last Saturday. We all enjoyed the music. You played a good variety of songs and we really enjoyed the jitterbug style. I, of course, take all the credit for finding you guys on the internet. I just love technology! Everything you said was understated!
 
Thank you again for a wonderful evening.
 
Louise Turner
 
 

Terry,

            Thanks for the follow-up email.  I got your first email and have been playing catch up for about a week.  We really enjoyed having you guys at the reception as well.  The music was awesome and ya’ll keep the party going.  Since Callie and I got back into town we’ve had lots of compliments and the reception and band so I am sure you will be back in East Texas soon.  The guest loved the variety of music and how well you guys could play.  We enjoy coming over to Louisiana to look at the old plantations.  When I get a chance to make it over again I will look you guys up. As I told you before I am in the video production business and a portion of our business is videotaping weddings.  We are revising the site and I was going to put a link to your bands website if that’s cool with you.

Thanks again,

From "THE KNOT" message board:
 
Has anyone had an experience with them? I was thinking of hiring them and saw they are from Baton Rouge. Thought I should ask the ever honest knotties for advice. TIA! :)
 
They are really good! I am having them for my wedding. I was very picky about choosing a band, but I had the chance to see them play at a wedding and was totally impressed. They are also very nice to work with. The lady Sandy who is one of the singers is great and also will sing for your ceremony at an extra charge. You might want to get in touch with them soon. They book fast! Good luck!
