Goody Blue Shoes promised a party, and they delivered! A month later, and people are still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding. I don't think there are words that can do justice to how awesome these guys are. If you're considering a band for your wedding, you NEED... Read More to check them out. I've been a huge fan of GBS for years, so when we got engaged the first thing we did was book them for the wedding! I love going to their local shows around South Jersey, but having them at my wedding was just unreal. They were in the crowd, dancing with the guests without missing a note. So incredible. The customization that they give you is great. They learned songs for us that we requested, and even changed the words to the father-daughter dance to make it more meaningful. They even learned a song to have our best man take the lead vocal on, which was one of the highlights of the night! You're not going to get that with a DJ. I was NOT prepared for all the little details leading up to the wedding day, but thankfully John was and he walked me through all of it! Yes, he helped me choose all of the music for the church and for the reception, but it goes beyond that. John is a true wedding professional, and will make sure that everything goes perfectly on your big day! You don't just get an amazing band when you book GBS, you also get a knowledgeable and professional point person who will pay close attention to the small details that you may not even notice to make sure that nothing slips through the cracks. I'm so happy we were able to have GBS as part of our wedding day!

Goody Blue Shoes did such an unbelievable job at our wedding! We had seen them before at a couple weddings previously and knew we had to have them at ours. They went above and beyond expectations.

GBS absolutely MADE our wedding. John was so incredible to work with- followed up with us throughout the planning process, met with us to make sure we were on the same page with music choices, and led us through the night like the natural he is. EVERYONE at our wedding was... Read More amazed at how great the band was- guests kept texting us the next day asking for their name!

Goody Blue Shoes made our wedding reception extra special. Their music and vocals are amazing. They learned songs just for us. Most of all, John took the time to help us plan the entire evening's entertainment and the results were spectacular!

They made our wedding! The kept the energy level high the entire night. John is incredible and will customize the music to your liking. I cannot express how incredibly talented and considerate this group of people are. My parents were wary of having a band instead of a DJ, but... Read More they immediately convinced otherwise when hearing this fantastic group. They will not stop ranting and raving about them and constantly recommend them to all of their friends for any party they have. That means a lot because my parents are very stubborn when it comes to their opinion. You will not be disappointed if you choose this group for any of your functions.

This group is top notch. WE had a very large outdoor wedding under a tent and I can't begin to tell you how much fun everyone had. And we had alot of different age ranges.

Goody Blue Shoes was an amazing band to work with! From the beginning to the end they were nothing but honest, helpful and most of all fun and outgoing! They were sure to put my husband and I first and only wanted the best for our day!! John gave us great advice from what songs...
