Since I was first introduced to the band, I have had the pleasure to see them play numerous times, at different venues, in the past 3 years. I had originally met them through a mutual friend, when I was looking for a Blues Band to play at my brother’s 40th birthday party. We were all blown away when they started playing, we realized this was no garage band! That’s when the love affair began.

I hired them again to play for my dad’s 70th birthday party, where they brought out the works, including a full lighting system. It was like a full concert was being played on the one acre lot we own. They played for hours on end, with a huge song list of original and cover tunes at their disposal. It was awesome, and the entire crowd was very impressed on their professionalism. They made me look good.

They recently played at a local bar by my house, where of course, my friends and I all attended. We are all now big fans and followers. These guys have the right equipment as well as talent and I would recommend them to play at any size venue, from a small party to a full stadium. All my future parties and events will definitely include Blue Daddy as the headliner.
