    DR. BLUES’ OUT OF TOWN BLUES BAND


If you care about good music and great dancing at your wedding, hire this band. Hiring these guys was one of the first choices we made, and one of the best. Highly recommended. They are easy to work with and extremely talented musicians. They can play everything - we classic Sinatra to disco to blues and they performed beautifully. They also are there to make sure that you and your guests have a great time and will get in to the celebrations with you. Great music and experience. Worth every penny. You can go hear them any Friday or Saturday night at New Vegas Lounge and see for yourself.

The Out of Town Blues Band played our reception at the Annapolis Maritime Museum. We had seen them play several times at New Vegas Lounge and a couple of other events. Sometimes it was a little tricky to communicate with them, but I was never too concerned since I knew they could play to a crowd and our guests would love them. Their team was there by the time my husband and I arrived already setting up and they had ALL of our guests out on the dance floor for their entire set. They also didn't take any breaks after dinner once we had everyone dancing, which in my experience is rare. So many people raved about the band -- they really made the evening. Their selection of songs was perfect as it spanned several decades (just like our guests, so there was something for everyone). They aren't cheap, but they are well worth it!

The New Vegas Lounge is our absolute favorite place to go out in to in DC so hiring the Out of Town Blues Band for our wedding was non negotiable for us. We are so glad we chose them- our guests were on the dance floor all night and they gave us an amazing party. They traveled up from DC to the Jersey Shore for our event, which was pricey, but worth it. The group also had on paper what seemed like an extensive rider, but they were very flexible and easy to work with. They worked with us strictly over the phone since we had moved out of DC right before our wedding which was a little difficult to coordinate, but worked fine. Jeremy was helpful in preparing a set list for us and offering suggestions where needed.
