Amazing! They are so talented and create an atmosphere for the event. The Blue Tones played our reception with a 6 piece band and it was spectacular. We had Big Band Music and 40s-50s music mostly and we couldn't have asked for more. It was like going back to that era they were so good. My husband says that they are what really made the reception go over the top. I can't say enough good things about them. They were so easy to work with and tailored the music/musicians to our needs.

The Bluetones were one of the main reasons our daughter's wedding reception was so much fun! The dance floor was FULL from the first song to the last. One young guest wrote on facebook the day after the wedding that she went home with her feet tired from dancing and her face tired from smiling.....and that our family surely did know how to throw a party! We had a large number of college-age and young twenties guests, and they loved the band. We were delighted with the quality of the music and the sound. The band played exactly what the bride and groom requested. We could not have been more pleased. All email and phone conversation with this vendor was exceptional with all details being handled promptly. We would definitely book them again.

WOW!!! Where do I begin?! The Blue Tone Chamber Players and the Blue Tone Music Band were both fantastic. When the ceremony prelude of classical music began, I actually got goosebumps and began to have tears in my eyes!! The sound was just magical and beautiful! And, then when I arrived for the end of the cocktail hour and heard the piano player and saxophone player in the lobby of the hotel, the magical night continued. The Blue Tone Music Band, with lots of horns, played for dancing following dinner; that dance floor was sooooo very crowded...just as my daughter had wanted it to be!! Their music helped to make the entire wedding ceremony and reception perfect and totally memorable!! Thanks so very much!!

There were so many good things about having Blue Tone Music providing both the ceremony music and the band for the reception at my wedding. First of all, they are so "with it" that I didn't have to stress too much or feel like I was doing all the work. They just really know their stuff and want to help. Second of all, they were amazing. I can't tell you how many people came up to us that night and several weeks following how that was the best wedding band they'd ever heard. We had several special request songs that they had to learn in advance and you would have guessed they knew them the whole time. They were perfect.

The Blue Tones are absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a band to play at their wedding or any function for that matter. They were such a pleasure to work with, and they made my wedding reception so incredibly fun! They played every song that I requested and nailed all of the vocals. They are such an awesome band, and I would love to hear them again.

They were great! We used them for our ceremony music, including our recessional of Queen, 'Another One Bites the Dust'. I was afraid they would fight with me on that, but I never heard a word, just a really fun song as we walked away as husband and wife :) The owner can be a bit pushy with what he thinks you should play, but not to the point of not wanting to use them - just let him know what you want and it will be taken care of!

I can't tell you how many comments we've had from all of our guests about ours being the most fun reception they've ever been to thanks to our BAND! The Blue Tones learned "Boogie Shoes" and "Wagon Wheel" per our request and the songs sounded better than I could have dreamed. Everything you played was perfect and so much fun. I have had friends ask for their information to book them for future events - we didn't want the music to end!

My only quip with the band is a very minor one, which is that only about a week before the wedding, I received a call from the owner that a specific service we had discussed them providing since booking them many months before the event was going to cost an extra $200 (we contracted the entire 10 piece band for 4 hours, but we were only going to use two of them for the first hour to play music during the cocktail hour, and then the entire band for the remaining 3 hours, and they wanted to charge us extra for the two musicians during the first hour). It was unfortunate that this came up so late and that I felt a little "nickled and dimed", but we talked through it and Dave agreed not to charge that after all once I explained how it was making me feel and that I was planning on tipping the entire band, including an extra amount for the lobby players. They more than made it up to us, though, by playing the most beautiful cocktail hour music and the most fun reception music, ending with a surprise New Orleans style exit that we will never forget!! The only reason I even mention this is to just urge couples booking the band, and to ask the band, to make sure that you are on the same page about the time and services you are booking much earlier than the week before the wedding.

Bottom line - I truly cannot sing their praises enough! They will absolutely MAKE your wedding reception!!

OUTSTANDING!!! The guests never wanted to sit down and danced into the night!!! We had a blast :)

David was easy to contract with and helped us choose the perfect arrangement for our party. (a 12-piece band!) Also, it was very affordable for our 5 hour reception! They played the standards during dinner and then turned it up a notch as we partied into the night.

I have given LOTS of recommendations to other guests from our wedding looking for a great band!

The Blue Tones were the perfect choice for my wedding. They had a great list of songs and even learned two new songs for our first dance and father-daughter dance that weren't on their list. Also, my husband works at a charter school affiliated with the Stax record label, and they were more than willing to play LOTS of Stax tunes. The band really set the tone for the reception and people were on the dance floor the ENTIRE night without a lull. It was awesome! They were very professional and sounded great!

The Blue Tones are the best band for an event by far. David really listens to what type of music you want for the ceremony and the reception and will sit down with yu and go through his entire cataloge if you need to to create your on "play list". I had the Strings with a trumpet entrance for the ceremony which was unbelievable and then the 5 piece band with the trumpet for the reception. Their voices were fantastic and the music great! I still listen to the demo he sent me sometimes just for the heck of it. If you want to make a statement at your wedding, use the Blue Tones. You will not regret it.

The Bluetones are amazing! If you want to have a great party, book them. We had both a DJ and an 8 piece band (long story). It actually worked out perfectly. they both kept the dance floor covered all night long. Everyone has said that our wedding was the best they have attended. They were very professional and kept in touch with us to make sure everything was as we wanted it. I was most impressed with the way they dealt with a potential crisis. We left our first dance song in another state (it was recorded by an relatively unknown artist). We did not realize this until after the ceremony was over and the cocktail hour was beginning. Our DJ was able to go on-line and get our specific song in time for our first dance. I was beyond impressed! The Bluetones go above and beyond. I would definitely book them again.

David was extremely easy to work with, he helped us pick a great ensemble for our venue, choose first dance songs, etc. They were extremely flexible about working around our somewhat unpredictable schedule. They were a joy!!

We had such a great experience with the Blue Tones! All of the planning was very smooth and the music was great! All of our guests had so much fun dancing along with the music and it highlighted the events of the evening perfectly. I did deduct a little from professionalism since one of the band members cell phones went off during our ceremony. Other than that small hiccup, we were definitely happy with the service we received!

After wading through hundreds of live band options in the Nashville area, we chose the Blue Tones for several reasons. We liked the breadth of genres that they play, enjoyed their performance at a bridal show, and wanted a band that would be familiar with weddings and, specifically, a New Year’s Eve party atmosphere. The Blue Tones exceeded all of our expectations. Their 7-piece ensemble kept our reception rocking for four solid hours—even their “10-minute break” music had guests dancing! We chose a Louis Armstrong song for our first dance, and I have to say that their singer was right on point, note for note, with the original. I almost thought we were dancing to a recording! Other than the pre-wedding questionnaire (just a simple one-pager that included do and don’t play lists, special song selections, and a general description of our event’s mood/atmosphere), the Blue Tones handled the selection, the timing, the performers, and the setup with little input from us—just the way we’d hoped! We never had to worry about the music or whether the guests would have a good time. We received glowing reviews for selecting the Blue Tones, and I would recommend them to any couple in the Nashville area!

Slightly overpriced, musicians made several mistakes during my processional which was frustrating. DJ played a few songs we had requested not to play, and the wrong version of the song for my father daughter dance..made it quite awkward to dance to and distracting rather than being a special and intimate moment. but other than that the DJ was great and all of our guests loved him.

Everyone on the coordinating end was very professional, and very helpful. I really appreciated them.

Charity,

We're so sorry that the DJ played a different version of Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight" than you were expecting to hear. The version that was played was the classic 1961 recording featured on many Sinatra albums. After reading your review and speaking to you, we did some research and found a slower version of the song featured on "The V Discs: The Columbia Years (1943-1952)." This version was never released as a single and is, therefore, uncommon.

We're sorry that you found the services a bit pricey. You were actually charged our standard Nashville rate for the DJ; however, symphony-quality classical musicians from Nashville are paid extra for travel to Kentucky. The classical musicians all reported that the ceremony went flawlessly.

We thank you for the positive comments that you made about our company. We certainly try very hard to please. It was also our pleasure to change your event date due to your husband's deployment with the military. Thank you for having us as a part of your wedding day.

Our experience with Blue Tone Music started off great. Every conversation we had over the phone was conducted with professionalism and we could sense that they knew exactly what we had in mind for both our ceremony and reception music. They entertained our 'do not play' and 'please play' lists and discussed and brainstormed ideas with us for ceremony music, etc. I wasn't too worried about the execution from this vendor.

Unfortunately, our experience the day of our wedding was a little less than satisfactory. The band played music from their iPhone while on break... During their first break at dinner, a Christmas song played (our wedding was in May), during the second break, the iPhone was not put on 'Airplane Mode' and the phone rang multiple times, and text message tones were going off consistently. It was so embarrassing that my husband actually had to leave our reception and run into the band's dressing room to get this situation corrected.

From a talent perspective, they were great. Above all the errors, people still had fun, danced, and even complimented us on the band. I would just recommend in dealing with this vendor to make sure you're expectations are laid out as best as possible and to make sure their phone is on Airplane Mode!!

I was really pleased overall with the band and the ceremony music...

Until my husband and I got home from our wedding and my mom said that our celloist got up and left our wedding near the end of our ceremony. Apparently our wedding service ran later than we told him and so he had another gig and left. That was really disappointing.

We're so happy you were really pleased with the band "The Nashville Blue Tones" at your reception and "The Blue Tone Chamber Players" at your ceremony. You certainly gave us rave reviews the evening of your wedding and it was a pleasure to work with you. Please note that our very professional classical musicians played past the contracted time of 1 hour at your ceremony. Although the cellist stayed as long as he could past the contracted time, he was not paid for overtime. The other musicians that stayed for the recessional and postlude songs were paid overtime by me at no expense to you. I chose not to charge you for the overtime for all the musicians because the cellist had another engagement. He is highly professional and could not be late for his next event. Please consider re-scoring our numbers in the flexibility and professionalism categories to reflect the actual events that took place.

I was told that specific DJ was coming and he did, however, I was NOT told he was a trainee...disappointing. The trainer left him on his own, which I was not crazy about. I would have preferred to have been asked if all this was alright; in fact, I was told the trainee was one of your best DJ's prior to the event. I'm not sure how a trainee is that good. To me, if a trainee is that good, he shouldn't be called a trainee... but he was introduced to me this way by the trainer and I was stunned. And this being the case, I don't believe the trainer should have left him. The DJ did play the music we requested, as well as traditional wedding games; however, I also requested that our DJ play w/ the guests in an engaging manner and this was not done. Blue Tone Music has an impeccable reputation and I was very excited abt the DJ, after having heard the band performance at the PINK wedding event in January. The band was extremely professional and I had high expectations. But, I felt jilted in the way things turned out. We can't go back and undo this, so based on this event as my only experience, I do not feel I can recommend Blue Tone Music. I hope you understand.

Joyce,

We are so sorry for any miscommunication or misunderstanding that happened. Your DJ for the evening was not a trainee - Blue Tone Music does not have a trainee program. The DJ, the setup person (who left before the first dances), and your daughter - the bride - all gave rave reviews of this wedding reception. Please see the bride's Wedding Wire review, copied below:

5.0/5.0: "A breeze to work with! Everything went exactly as I had hoped. They kept our guests dancing and smiling. I couldnt have asked for more!!"
