About Us

The Bluesual Suspects Orchestra provides a much needed alternative to the many cheesy wedding bands and tribute acts that fill the current musical landscape. Nothing compares to the real sound of real instruments and real voices. Smaller groups would like to tell you that they have a full sound but they are merely singing to pre-recorded tracks. Do you really want a “band in a box” performing something resembling karaoke?

The Bluesual Suspects Orchestra is today recognized as being the most accomplished special events band in the country. For high-end galas, fundraisers parties and exclusive weddings, there’s nothing that comes close to TBS. From the cocktail reception to the dance party, the band has the unique ability to transform itself as the event ensues. Starting with background music and ending with a dance floor-packed party as your event progresses, this band has it all covered.
The core of the group: Rick Precious on keyboards, Phil Kane on guitar, Jeff Mandell on drums and Jay Speziale on bass have established their unique ability to lay down the right feel at the right time. Years of playing in the blues, rock, and jazz fields, backing up some of the best musicians in the country, and then coming together to develop this “do it all” ensemble, have many in the industry calling them their ‘dream’ rhythm section.

In 2003, the band added 6 very special horn players and built a repertoire of hot, brassy and powerful charts. All this power required a very special singer. Someone whose vocal range could take the band from jazz to rock, from Michael Bublé to Gnarls Barkley or from Frank Sinatra to Frank Zappa and everything in between. Aidan Doyle and TBS: ” a match made in heaven”. He’s got it all; the power, the tone, the versatility and the musicality.

In 2008, Kimberley Wetmore joined the band as female lead vocalist. Whether live in concert or for televised audiences, Kimberley Wetmore’s powerful and dynamic voice has captivated audiences worldwide! She’s a welcome addition to The Bluesual Suspects. Who says you can’t have it all?

I can’t begin to tell you how grateful we are for your presence at our celebration. You and your band MADE the night. I have never seen a dance floor so packed for the entire night!!! Every single song you played was a raging hit and you sounded absolutely awesome!!

I also can’t thank you enough for playing so long and even coming back for an encore. I know you didn’t have to do that and truly appreciate your enthusiasm. The next morning I must have received compliments about you from every single guest!!

People were blown away.
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU so much!!!


I hope you’re well. I meant to email you sooner, but between our honeymoon, moving out of our apartment, and our move to California, it’s been a little hectic. We leave for California next Monday!

Nevertheless, Sabrina and I would like to thank you and The Bluesual Suspects for playing at our wedding. Old and young, everyone told us how much they “LOVED” the band! I expect you’ll be hearing from many of them in the near future, as you guys were really great.

On top of that, it was incredibly refreshing to deal with someone as sincere as yourself throughout the wedding planning. So thank you again and please let me know if you’d like me to write a testimonial.


5 stars is not a high enough number to describe how INCREDIBLE this band is – I want to give them a 10+++. Talented, professional, flawless, energetic – so many people at our event asked me – WHERE did you find this band – they are brilliant!! Kimberly and Aidan – simply unmatched vocal talent – what a great combination!! I almost don’t want to gush TOO much because I don’t want them to be too booked for the next time WE need them!

Thank you to each and every band member, as well as to your hard-working sound and support crew, for making our 70th Anniversary Celebration a truly memorable occasion.


Our wedding was a blast and it was all because the entertainment was so amazing. From the grandparents’ generation to the four year olds, we all loved the music. You definitely played all the right songs and got everyone up on their feet.

We were surprised to see that so many people stayed so late to listen to you play and dance! Our guests are still raving about the band to us and our bridal party. You guys looked so great as well and really matched the atmosphere of the Arcadian Court.

Thank you so much for making the night truly memorable for everyone.
