“Rock and Roll Fantasy”®
Many people hire Liquid Blue because the band is young, highly energetic, hip and plays more modern Top-40 dance hits then most other similar groups. What is sometimes surprising to those that have never seen the band live is that Liquid Blue, at its core, is a rock and roll band. Classic and modern rock are the groups forte. With that in mind the group recently put together a show for die-hard rock fans called “Rock and Roll Fantasy”. This show features rock music from the 60’s to today. Other popular Liquid Blue tribute shows include “The Divas”, “British Invasion” and “HippieFest”, a flashback to the days of flower-power.
Here’s a band that obviously loves what they do. Despite performing over 2000 shows in over 500 cities, the band continues at a pace that baffles the mind; writing, recording and performing almost 300 days a year! This band simply reveres great rock music and it shows in every performance.

“In my 23 years as Designer/Technical Director for La Jolla’s annual Jewel Ball, I’ve never been blown away by a band’s performance. Until now. Liquid Blue was amazingly creative and versatile.
