"To the Members of
of Blue, Thank you so much for the wonderful music you have provided for our
wedding. We knew you were "our band" the moment we heard you at Boordy. It has been a pleasure working with you - Gary has been wonderful
to work with and so helpful in planning our day. Thank you again for doing
such a terrific job." -- K.&B.C., Forest Hill, MD
"We were enormously pleased with
the music at [the] wedding and have received many compliments. Thanks so much.
[The bride and groom] have been to a number of receptions since and they have
compared music groups to yours. Nothing comes close to
of Blue. We will surely
pass your name and number around with high praises." -- C.T., Potomac, MD

wonderful and the guests just loved the music. My parents were so surprised.

that I'll send to you." -- W.C.A., Monkton, MD
"I just wanted to
formally thank you and the orchestra for doing such a fantastic job at the

mentioned to us that the music really made the party outstanding. Thank
you again for being an important part of a very special day." -- R.M.,
"The music was wonderful!
Thanks again for making this a memorable evening for family and guests." -- M.E.G.,
"Thank you so much for being a
good sport about all the detail... You truly gave me goose bumps from head to toe as my
Maid of Honor and I hid in the bushes at The Evergreen House listening to
of Blue at some strangers'
wedding reception." -- C.H.W., Glyndon, MD
"Your music was so beautifully
perfect at our reception that it was the highlight of the affair. Every guest we
spoke with loved Shades of Blue including our young nieces and nephews ranging from 11-15 years.
Personally, I hardly left the room for fear of missing even one song. Consequently,
I got very little to eat. It was a day of sentimentality which was further enhanced
by the beauty of your playing. We were extremely pleased with our choices especially
the ones for the special dances. I wish I could thank each of your individual
members by name, but not having met them, I hope you will convey our feelings to all of
them. Thank you for making our day so memorable with your excellent music." --
A.O.S. -- Butler, MD
"I wanted to personally thank
you for celebating the opening... with us. The

the grandest style more than 9,000 visitors over the... weekend." -- R.P.B. --
"Thank you for making our
evening so complete. Everything was wonderful." -- C.S.O., Ruxton, MD

was I who recommended you to [the contact] who put the... opening together. Speaking
to her today - everyone RAVED about you and she called to thank me for the recommendation.
See you again!" -- A.H., Timonium, MD
"You and yours were fabulous!
My director wanted to dance more - more - more! We've set [the date for next
year], but we don't know what we're doing yet, but I hope we'll do it with
of Blue! You're
great. Thanks." -- C.B., Baltimore, MD
