Posi (Positive) Music spans all genre. Liquid Blue is probably the best example of a well travelled, highly acclaimed band in mainstream music (mostly dance rock) whose music often carries a Posi message. The 10-plus member band began it public shows in 1996. It has six men, four women and a few occasional other members. Each main member has an understudy; several of the understudies also perform in their own band called Aqua Blue.
Liquid Blue has blazed a trail for itself. Its official slogan is “Music to Move You”. They have more than 100 awards for their music including a Posi Music Award, Guiness Book of World Record, Billboard Top-10 Hit, featured on six magazine covers.

The group has performed sold-out, ticketed shows worldwide and has received more accolades, awards and recognition than any other party band in the event industry. Liquid Blue is a certified green business.”
