Bock & Blu was formed in 1987. All of our members had been in other bands, but they were still searching for something new and exciting --- a band with top-notch professional musicians that would inspire audiences as well as the musicians themselves --- a band that would perform at private affairs, corporate events and weddings but didn’t sound like a typical "wedding band". The concept worked, and Bock & Blu was a hit.
Then after five years of heavy bookings through the New York, tri-state area's largest wedding and event booking agencies, we decided to go out on our own. Instead of dealing with a large impersonal agency, our clients could now meet directly with a Bock & Blu representative who was also a member of the band. Our clients have come to love this.
We know everyone is unique, therefore, every party should be unique too. In order for us to give you the party you want, we need to get to know you. We will discuss your musical tastes - what you like and what you don't like.
Generally two months prior to your party, we like to get together with you in person or by phone to discuss what we call "finals". By discussing the details of your party in depth, we can help create the mood you like. If you know what you want perfect! If you are undecided, we can make suggestions. This way you know what to expect and can rest assured that your party will be exactly that - your party!
Our extensive repertoire makes it possible for us to play just about any style of music you want to hear. We provide a song list to make this process easier for you. If you would like to hear specific songs that might not be on our list, we'll learn them for you.
Music should complement your party, not compete with it. We pay careful attention to providing an atmosphere conducive to both conversation and dancing. Timing is everything - we adjust the music you've selected to insure that everyone is involved.
It is our job to keep the dance floor crowded.
We realize that hiring a band is a very important decision. We want to make it easy and fun for you to get all the information you need at your own convenience.
