We thought the quality of both the vocals and the instruments was stunning - and our guests all agreed. The tone of the music was paced perfectly, keeping things swinging throughout the evening and everyone from age 8 to 80 had a go on the dance floor! We also really appreciated your professional approach and your flexibility in playing both indoors and outdoors across sets, which was just as we had hoped for.
Thanks again for helping to make the day a really memorable and special occasion. "

"Thank you so much for such a fabulous evening that Urban Blue provided for our wedding on the 1st May this year. We just wanted to write a note to say thank you so much to every single member of Urban Blue who gave us a fabulous night. All of our guests had a wonderful time and even those that don't dance were up on the dance floor with the rest of us!
We're now desperately thinking of another party that we could have just so we can have Urban Blue again!!!! We even had some of our friends calling relatives so that they could hear the music on their phone!!!!
Even guests that haven't danced for years were up on the dance floor! You really set the atmosphere for the whole evening and made it an unforgettable night for both of us. Thank you all."
- Matt & Emily Barker - Quendon
"We had such a brilliant time last night and the band completely hit the spot - the only sadness was having to bring it all to an end!

"As a musician and music lover I knew I wanted the music at my wedding to be something special and Urban Blue filled the bill perfectly. They're a really nice bunch of people to deal with, were very accommodating in modifying their set list to include some of our favourites and even learnt our first dance song specially. They are also a really professional band - arrival, set up and departure was so slick that we didn't even notice! I had so many comments from guests afterwards complimenting the music, and I've never seen so much enthusiastic dancing from all age groups at a wedding. They really knew how to hit the right note for the crowd and give everyone a really great time. Thank you Urban Blue!"
- Ed Corn - Sevenoaks
"Your band was recommended by a friend of mine who's a professional musician and rated Urban Blue extremely highly. He definitely wasn't wrong! You performed and awesome set which had everyone dancing from the first to last beat. We also really appreciated the fact that due to the late running speeches and live music restrictions, you quite happily played a straight 2 hour set without a break. We received a huge amount of praise about how good you were from our guests, and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see you playing again at one of our friend's weddings or parties."
- Andy & Annie - Hove
"Urban Blue has played my Father's 50th and my 21st Ð on both occasions have been absolutely fantastic. The band got everybody up dancing and played a wide variety of music.

We will no doubt being booking Urban Blue again in the future and would highly recommend them for any party or celebration. Thank you!"

Please pass on our thanks to them all, and I will be sure to recommend Urban Blue to anyone arranging a wedding or party that requires a band in the future."
- Carey Williams - Sandford
"I'm sorry it's taken quite so long to email you back about the music you provided for our wedding back in April, but I have say a really big thank you to you and the rest of the band for making it quite so special. Your band was recommended by a friend of mine who's a professional musician and rated Urban Blue extremely highly. He definitely wasn't wrong! You performed an awesome set which had everyone dancing from the first to last beat. We also really appreciated the fact that due to the late running speeches and live music restrictions, you quite happily played a straight 2 hour set without a break.

"Urban Blue played at my wedding on 26th July at Sundridge Park in Bromley and I'd just like to thank the band for being so fantastic. Everyone said how great they were, they really created a fabulous mood and got everyone dancing and made the evening really special. They were brilliant - thanks so much!"
- Danielle Fynn - Sundridge Park
"Urban Blue were to my mind perfect. I was the father of the bride and very interested in music. I did a lot of research and listened to a lot of bands on the internet. Many seemed only to play music from the 60s onwards, this band can play everything from the jazz standards to the classic pop and modern stuff. This very much suited the age range of people you get at a wedding. We had the full line up so there was a sax player as well so not just two/three guitars and drums and guys who could not either play or sing. This band performed to a very high musical standard and they had a singer who could really sing. The dance floor was always full, they started with a few numbers which had us older ones putting out with a few quicksteps and then they played the more groovy numbers. The dance floor was always full. The hotel had reserved a limited amount of room to dance but we asked for more so we had quite a bit area for dancing and we needed it. Our group was 75 adults and 15 children.
They were very easy to get hold of. Peter has email and a mobile phone, when he went away, Jamie dealt with any issues. We overran with the wedding breakfast so they were delayed in setting up, but they were not dismayed, they re-scheduled to fit our circumstances and set up very efficiently and quickly.
We never had any concerns - I was handling them and they were always flexible and helpful. Through Urban Blue we booked had a harpist as well. Like the band, the harpist was very personable and very well appreciated. Lots of people commented afterwards how much they had enjoyed them.
So in brief, I cannot recommend them too highly! Hope you have a wonderful day, like we did."
- John Edwards - Ritherwick
"Dear Peter and the amazing Urban Blue band! What to say.. thank you. The music for our wedding was amazing, we were so chuffed. We loved all the songs, our family/friends all enjoyed it. It was really fantastic. Dave and I are so grateful. I think you will have lot more bookings from the Essex region!!
Thank you again, plus for all the help prior when my wedding nerves was getting to me. Please do say a big thank you to the musicians, they were brilliant."
- Libby and Dave Fowler - Great Dunmow
"My wife Cat and I would like to thank you for such a wonderful performance at our wedding back in August at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park. As a keen musician myself I wanted the band to be a focus for the evening and you certainly didn't disappoint, with a great set and a never empty dance floor. My only criticism is that you let Cat sing during Mustang Sally ;-)
Cat's father funded the majority of the wedding and at the end of the night he said he was absolutely blown away by the quality and thought it was worth every penny. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you in the future."
- Steve & Cat Saunders - Richmond
"Just a note to say a big thank you as we were really pleased with the music last night. We had excellent feedback from our guests."

Once again, many thanks for making Saturday night what it was."
- James Laurence Williams, Lieutenant Royal Navy - HMS Belfast
"I just wanted to pass on my thanks for crowning a perfect day for me and Alix. The music was outstanding and many people asked why we didn't scrap the DJ for the evening and have Urban Blue all day! FANTASTIC! Thank you so much. Steve & Alix July 4th 2009."

- Jane Lebeau - Greenwich

Their professionalism, range and sheer spirit provided an amazing atmosphere, not forgetting the music, which was nothing short of superb."
- Nik and Rebecca Haley

With 100 people from across the globe, a variety of musical tastes and some strong opinions we assumed we wouldnt be able to please everyone with our choice, how wrong we were. The two sets were fantastic and met our requirements exactly, thank you for making the evening an even better one."

All were smartly turned out and enjoyed themselves as much as we did!

Our wedding day seemed to go so well, and you were such an important part of that. Everyone has commented to us just how much they loved your music. From the moment you started playing we were in no doubt that we had not only chosen the right and the best band, but had somehow found a group of people who fitted in just like old friends. You responded to our guests desire to have fun, which was amply demonstrated by the fact that the dance floor was busy all night.
Both Kay and I are musicians, and we appreciate the hard work put in and pure talent exhibited by all the members of the band. We simply couldn't have wished for anything more."
