This band REALLY brought it!! They had the dance floor full all night! They know how to interact with the dancers and stay engaged. Eric is outstanding and so were the players in the band. We paid extra for the two horns...well worth it. They have everything from the classic to the sound of Aretha Franklin and Elvis. They gave us a real show. I have 31 nieces and nephews...all but 11 are married and this is the best band that has ever played at the first 20 weddings! Thanks we had a blast!!

The Erik Blue Band is one of the best if not the best band I have ever worked with. They are so accommodating and are so easy to work with and it doesn't hurt that they sound amazing as well. I can't wait to work with them agains soon!

They were amazing! We could not have asked for a better band for our wedding. We received soooo many compliments about Erik Blue. Our wedding…We received soooo many compliments about Erik Blue. Our wedding coordinator said they were completely professional, and the crowd loved them. Thanks so much for being apart of our special day.

Erik Blue Band played at our daughter's wedding reception They were awesome!!!

Jamie Bowling - June 26, 2017

The Erik Blue Band was totally awesome! I had them play for our son's wedding and I could not have been happier. Erik Werner is one of the nicest entertainers you will ever work with. He interacted so well with the crowd and even let some of amateur guests show off their talent. The band hardly took a break and even played through their last break because our crowd was enjoying them so much. They were prompt with set up. I can't recommend this band highly enough. I guarantee you they will not disappoint! Three weeks later, we are still getting comments about how great the band was. Thank you, Erik Blue Band for making our reception a total hit!

Absolutely the BEST wedding band! The band kept the party moving and dancing all night. We received so many compliments from our wedding guests. Their only complaints were how sore their feet were the next day from dancing so much! We cannot thank Erik Blue and his band enough for making our wedding such a fun night!
