Blue Avenue Groove is the bomb!  They played for two large fundraising Gala events that our company has held and our only regret was that we didn’t have enough time for them to play a 3rd set. This band has it all:  they are consummate musicians who can play anything. They bring incredible energy to their dance sets but are equally adept at slow, jazzy grooves for a cocktail hour.  Their set list is eclectic while still incorporating crowd pleasers.  Leader Will Kencel is professional and a true pleasure to communicate with while preparing for our event as well.  Highly recommend!

My wife & I can’t recommend Blue Avenue Groove highly enough! Seriously, our wedding would not have been the same without them. From funk, to r & b, to the instrumental jazz standards they played during cocktail hour, they can do it all. We had many wedding guests both during and after the reception, tell us that they are by far the best wedding band they’d ever heard, and I wholeheartedly agree. Thank you to Will and the rest of the group for being incredibly talented and kind souls, and for providing us and our guests truly unforgettable music on our big day. I highly recommend booking this amazing group of musicians for any event!

Blue Avenue Groove really got our Christmas party going! They were not only incredibly talented, but they were SO easy to work with. From beginning to end, they were accommodating to every song request and schedule request, even some last minute changes we made. If you want to dance and have a great time, I would highly recommend them for your next party or event.

We booked Blue Avenue Groove for our Met Museum Staff Holiday Party and they did not disappoint! They are talented, high-energy, and Will was a pleasure to work with throughout the planning of the event. Highly recommend!

Blue Avenue Groove was terrific! They played a birthday party of 40 people for us, and the whole party loved them. We asked them to play mostly motown, and they were great. I’d love to have a chance to hear more of their current songs too. Will was really easy to work with and made the whole process easy and fun. Highly recommend!!
