See what some of our clients had to say about their experiences with Goody Blue Shoes…
The day and night of music Goody Blue Shoes gave to us was so incredible and just completely made our wedding day. From the moment we were connected with John and GBS, my husband and I realized what a personal and special job they do for each of the couples they work with. My husband and I had stopped by a GBS rehearsal before booking them. Little did we know, I would be brought to tears and my husband and I shared a moment in picking our wedding song after hearing Ralph sing. After that, we were completely blown away with every step. John and GBS really care about getting to know the couple, being the right fit for the couple’s music interest, and they have a true passion for creating a beautiful wedding day and fun party for everyone. Their vocals and music are amazing, and they really help with the coordinating of the whole night. They have great energy, have fun performing, and are extremely professional. We still have so many friends and family still raving about the band at our wedding and even had a couple of friends book GBS after that night. I also wish we could have the party all over again!The New Mr. and Mrs. Bryan and Kate Tuohy
Goody Blue Shoes is such an amazing group of musicians that it was very easy to decide that they would be our ceremony, cocktail and reception band!
How many vocalists do you know who can sing Ave Maria at the church and also sing Beyonce at the reception? (mic drop) Likely, zero.
We will forever be grateful for their talent, energy and charm with which they lead and guided our reception. Since my husband is from a musical family, at our request, they graciously let us sing and play with them for a few songs which meant a lot to us. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, through my chaotic wedding fog, John worked with me in preparing the day’s events from rehearsing family names to recommending appropriate church music to a realistic approach of our “must have” list so that they could learn songs for us.
They were a complete JOY to work with and so, so easy, which in the wedding industry – is a rarity. Goody Blue Shoes does not disappoint, I would recommend them a thousand times over and I can’t thank them enough for the fun & special memories!The New Dr. and Mrs. Michael and Alexis Hughes
Goody Blue Shoes 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 amazed at how great the band was – guests kept texting us the next day asking for their name! We are so thankful we went with Goody Blue Shoes for our wedding band – from our beautiful first dance song to our epic last dance – GBS provided us with the dance-filled wedding we dreamed of.The New Mr. and Mrs. Michael and Meghan Mastrangelo
Look no further than Goody Blue Shoes!
My husband and I were married on June 2, and I still don’t think I have fully processed how incredibly awesome Goody Blue Shoes was from start to finish.
When John, the band leader, tells you he is going to take care of your event, he will beat any and every expectation. John really takes the time to work with you, listen to your ideas, and guide you in the right direction. He reminds you every time that he is there to support your day and your vision. By the end of the process, expect a new friend and family member in John.
Goody Blue Shoes Party Band took care of all our music and entertainment needs throughout the entire day. We had a traditional Catholic Mass in which we had a pianist, trumpet player and a vocalist. Be warned, Marissa’s rendition of the Ave Maria was so beautiful that I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house… I mean church.
Then we got to the cocktail hour/reception (at the Flanders Hotel in Ocean City, NJ) and once again we were floored. Cocktail hour music consisted of the piano and violin. It was a great mix of popular and classical music. The music floated beautifully through the Flanders.
And just when we thought they couldn’t outdo themselves any more, the party really got started. Intros to special dances to speeches to every other reception milestone transitioned so smoothly. The musicians are incredibly talented and so full of energy. They kept the dance floor packed all night long.
3 weeks later, and our families are still telling us how amazing the band was. Seriously, do yourself a favor and check them out at one of their appearances for yourself.
Thank you John and Goody Blue Shoes Party Band for everything! Please know you have made lifelong friends (and fans) in Jonathan and me.
I am still in my wedding hair and makeup from last night and had to write this review before anything today. Our wedding last night was the BEST party thanks to Goody Blue Shoes. EVERY single guest RAVED about how they blew the roof off!!! They hit music for all ages, played up the crowd, and kept the whole reception dancing until the very last minute! John was an awesome MC and so wonderful to work with from the first meeting to the end! We are eternally grateful to these wonderful people for the best night of our life!The New Mr. and Mrs. Matt and Amanda Steiner
John, Thank you for the fabulous party! People are still raving about the band. I can’t tell you enough how thrilled we are will you all! Totally a class act – we will refer Goody Blue Shoes whenever we can.Kim and Robert Garner - Parents of the Bride
Having the Goody Blue Shoes Band play our wedding was one of the best choices we made for our special day. John met with us multiple times leading up to the wedding to ensure that the music choices and timing was exactly what we wanted – we could not have felt more taken care of. The day of the wedding, we knew everything would go smoothly with John and the band as the unofficial hosts of the party. Our guest raved after the reception that the band was amazing, and that they had never danced so much at a wedding. Thank you to the Goody Blue Shoes Band for making our wedding day sound great and run so smoothly!The New Mr. and Mrs. Bob and Amy Bausinger
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!The New Mr. and Mrs. Mark and Lorrie Brown
I can’t thank you guys enough for the GREAT time Saturday night. From start to finish, every detail, every song all worked together to make our daughter and new son in law’s day ever more special. Goody Blue Shoes is the BEST. PARTY. BAND. EVER. Can’t wait till our paths cross again!David and Karen Herwig - Parents of the Bride
Goody Blue Shoes was amazing, they made the whole wedding! Seriously, we loved every minute. They took everything to a completely different level. Everybody was talking about the band…they were saying, “who is this band? They’re awesome!” They were constantly complimenting how great the music was. Thank you Goody Blue Shoes!The New Mr. and Mrs. Shane Beatrice and Katie Hughes
Goody Blue Shoes 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 a lot of different age ranges. From the bride/groom dance to the father/daughter dance to the mother/son dance, it was all awesome. We had so many emails and text messages the following day telling us it was the best wedding ever. I really don’t think there was anyone sitting at the tables because everyone was on the dance floor. I would recommend this band to everyone. They cater to whatever your group wants. Very professional and all over great group of people!Suzanne and Joe Savage - Parents of the Bride
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 to play at what time, the schedule for the day of and some suggestions on Mother and Son songs. I can not say enough great things about GBS. I highly recommend them to any bride and groom. They learned new songs to sing for us and because we are into country they learned a medley of country music for us and our guests! It was nothing but amazing and we owe it to John and his crew!The New Mr. and Mrs. Paul and Alexandra Reiss
Thank you Goody Blue Shoes for the incredible performance at the Gloucester County 4H Fair and N.J. Peach festival. We all really enjoyed you! Goody Blue Shoes had everybody dancing – even the vendors in there booths. We’ve never had a crowd like that at the Saturday Night Performance. We hope you will come back next year.Tom Doebler
Thank you so much, John. You and Goody Blue Shoes definitely made it the best night of our lives! Can’t wait to see you again soon!The New Mr. and Mrs. Blake and Laura Flail
