We hired the Mambo Blue band to play at our gala. The members were professional, courteous and accommodated all our requests. We asked for a certain genre of music to create a 1950s theme and Jose, their pianist immediately sent us a 1950s era Repertoire which is exactly what we wanted. Definitely recommend this band if you are looking for a classy band to entertain at your event.

PLEASE READ SOME OF OUR REVIEWS:
"As an educator of 10 years, musician of 15 and lover of music for as long as I can remember, I can honestly say it was an absolute pleasure to have Mambo Blue Latin Band at our event. From the moment I first connected with Jose over the phone he was kind, courteous, genuine, easy to talk with and helpful. We went back and forth over phone and email for the next number of days and it became clear that whatever I needed for the event, Jose and the band could pull it off.
We went with a 4 person band with music focusing on a variety of world styles. They arrived in a timely manner, setup all their equipment with ease and were ready to being playing at the agreed upon time. The night went off without a hitch - they played two sets of music (the first 45 minutes and the second 30). I am glad we changed our minds from the original plan and made them the center attraction for much of the event because everyone centered around them anyway! Students were dancing and having a great time while the adults sat back and enjoyed the great music.
At the end of the night, cleanup went quickly and the band expressed their gratitude for being part of the evening. Each member was positive, kind and seemed to have a good time themselves. Following the event, I can't tell you how many people commented about the band and what a wonderful evening it was. Thank you Jose and Mambo Blue Latin Band for making this event one of the most memorable events in my career and at our school. Without a doubt, this is the band to book for your event."

We love the Mambo Blue Band! Jose was exceptionally communicative and easy to work with. He asked questions to truly understand the experience we wanted for the evening. As a small nonprofit that provides cancer support to patients and their families, we really wanted this to be special evening for our members to come together and have fun. Mambo Blue did not disappoint! They immediately got everyone up and dancing. The energy in the room was incredible and felt by all in attendance. Both Jose and the singer were engaging and made people want to be a part of the fun. Everyone left smiling from ear-to-ear!
I highly recommend the Mambo Blue Band! We loved them and will absolutely be inviting them back to our Clubhouse in the future. Thanks for making our evening extra special, Mambo Blue!
