Buzz and the Blue Cats played at our wedding this past July and they were incredible! Not only did they have everyone on the dance floor all night, but they were also such a joy to work with. Scott went out of his way to make sure the night went as smoothly as possible, giving... Read More us a call a month before the wedding to discuss all details. So many friends have come up to me since our wedding to tell me how much they loved our band, I can’t recommend Buzz and the Blue Cats enough!

You would be hard pressed to find a better band to play at your event. They played our wedding and kept the celebration going well into the night and got everyone on the dance floor. Carol is amazing to work with and will handle anything you need with kindness and grace. Scott... Read More and the band are wonderful, professional and have that 'it' factor to know how to play to the crowd. They treat you like family and they were the easiest vendor to work with. Get B&BC on the booked as soon as your set your date, you won't be disappointed.

Buzz & The Blue Cats were a hit at our wedding!! Carol & Scott were true professionals that made this process seamless. They walked us through every step of the way and made us feel at ease during the stressful time of planning our wedding. Buzz (Scott) assisted us with quite a... Read More bit more than just their performance. Leah ( pianist) played the music during our procession. Buzz did a great job of hosting/MC of the wedding. The also assisted us in our grand exit by performing a second line!! Several of my guests commented that this was one of the best weddings that they've ever attended. The band or the music at a wedding can make or break it. Everybody was on the dance floor regardless of age. Buzz and the Blue Cats have such a wide variety of songs that they can play. We went through the list and highlighted a couple of must have songs! They listened to our taste and played incredible music for four hours! I highly recommend this band if you're looking for music for a wedding or event. I would definitely use them again!!! Maybe our 10 year anniversary?

My husband and I booked Buzz and The Blue Cats for our November wedding and my goodness, they are amazing! They did a wonderful job learning my husband and I's first dance song, as well as a song that I wanted to surprise my husband with. By the end of the night, I was not... Read More ready to leave the dance floor because of the great energy they brought to the reception. They had their timing down perfectly and made sure to take their breaks at all the right times. Their sound tech even didn't mind that my 4 year old nephew watched him work almost the entire night! They're beyond talented and I would book them again in a heartbeat!

We are so happy to have had Buzz and the Blue Cats perform at our wedding this summer! They were recommended by some friends and most definitely did not disappoint- they had the dance floor full from the moment it opened until the very last song, which was all we could have... Read More asked for. The band did a fantastic job by accommodating our tastes from their vast set list. We have had so many friends and family members rave about the music since the wedding and we owe it all to Buzz and the band. I would highly recommend Buzz and the Blue Cats for a wedding band- they have great sound, really do care about making the night memorable, and provide great value!

Because I have a little background in music, I was very picky with the quality of the sound of the band. After listening to many, many bands, I found this awesome band. They far exceeded my expectations on the wedding day playing every song we had picked out. Furthermore, they... Read More were so professional throughout the entire process. Everyone kept telling us during the night how great the band was. I highly recommend this band!

Buzz and the Blue Cats have been absolutely great to work with - knowledgeable, capable, accommodating, and helpful at every turn. Scott and Carol are both so friendly, and have a sweet family. The band gave us just the experience we hoped for! The music at the wedding was... Read More tailored just for us - loud when we wanted loud and soft when it needed to be softer, fun and beautiful music well-done, and according to the list we submitted. Scott was just right as master of ceremonies, timing things well, enhancing the reception in every way. I highly recommend Buzz and the Blue Cats!

If I could give Carol, Buzz and his band more than 5 stars, I would. My husband and I were not planning to have a band until we serendipitously heard them playing one evening as we were checking out a venue. We hadn't even heard them sing, just the ambient music as guests were... Read More trickling in, and I knew we had to have them. You could tell they "just got it" with regard to what music is needed at district parts of a wedding. Sure enough, when we looked up the band, read others' reviews and heard some demos online, they were by far *the best* band. Though I hadn't been looking initially, I of course, looked up other bands to compare and nothing/no one did. Carol was wonderful in helping us schedule Buzz and the band at super short notice (they happened to free that weekend, and I mean like <1 months before the wedding). They even worked within the physical space we had and accommodated a request for a smaller band set based upon our needs. Both she and Buzz helped my husband and I decide what kind of music would be best fitting for our vision of our wedding, how things would go and though I could chose songs to hear throughout the night, I really opted to just have Buzz and the band decide what made sense based upon the crowd and how the night was going. To say they "made the night" is nothing short of the truth. Throughout the evening and, now, months after, we hear from guests how wonderful the band was and that they were the best other guests have heard at weddings, too. They got people dancing, singing, and loving all kinds of music to dance to and generally be together with. Having Buzz's expertise and wedding know-how as support really calmed my anxiety--if you think about it, this is his expertise--they do weddings all the time and I, hopefully, will only experience being the bride once. Knowing they were on board helped me relax and enjoy the night, and most of all, their talent and professionalism made ours an incredibly memorable night. We sincerely hope to work with them in the future and wouldn't hesitate to contract with them for future family and/or work events. Wouldn't think to look anywhere else. We'll be forever grateful we found them.

Hiring Buzz and the Blue Cats is one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. We did some research on pricing and song lists and booked them from out of state without meeting them. They did a wedding at our venue (LBJ Wildflower Center) before our wedding but it... Read More was a different set up so it was new for them. Buzz met with us a month before our wedding when we were there for our walkthrough to ask some questions and make sure he was pronouncing our names right, etc. We gave him our must have list and request for house music and he played it all just as we requested! He also offered to play our first dance song (Leon Bridges, Coming Home) which was not on his song list. I was a little nervous but can honestly say he cfrushed it. It sounded so good that I forgot that it wasn’t the track until I caught a glimpse of him singing (ha). The band was energetic the entire event and our guests are still talking about how much fun they were. Buzz was also flexible when at the end of the night our send off car was late and they played a few more songs as our wedding coordinator figured out where the car was. I would highly recommend Buzz and The Blue Cats. They are super easy to work with and are the best value you will find in Austin!

Everyone had an... Read More absolute blast and never left the dancefloor.

Buzz and the Blue Cats also had a great working relationships with the folks at Mercury Hall where we had our wedding and so they're arrival and departure were seamless. I wish we could get married again so we could hire them one more time!

We got Buzz and the Blue Cats for our wedding last October 24th and I am very happy that we did.
