Why Book Blue Avenue Groove?

With international touring session musicians and Grammy-winning vocalists, we’re more than just a cover band. Our extensive experience and high-energy performances make us the perfect choice when you’re looking for a New York City Motown wedding band. Thanks to our extensive repertoire, no two performances or events are ever the same. If you want romantic crooners and the leading soul wedding band in New York City, we’ll deliver; if you want to rock the roof off a New York City corporate event, that’s well within our wheelhouse, too.

Every wedding performance includes a 5-10-piece reception band, 3 personal song requests, a full instrument and sound back line, and a wireless microphone for speeches. Beyond serving as a Motown wedding band, we also offer add-on services, such as providing a master of ceremonies, a professional sound/lighting engineer, and/or a DJ.

Our corporate event performances can be tailored to your venue. Several of our popular bookings include jazz trios or quartets, a 5-10-piece R&B cover band, and a 4-7-piece rock/pop cover band. From holiday parties to cocktail hours, our event scheduling specialist makes booking live entertainment seamless.
