“The Groove were ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! I cannot put into words how impressed we were with the band, we had them for an acoustic set during our welcome drinks and then in the evening for our main reception. They were professional from start to finish – from organising set lists and timings beforehand (Jonny was great), to being there on time, ready and organising their sets on the day, moving instruments, setting up etc…. We found them on the internet which is always a gamble and we were apprehensive as its such a big decision choosing a band for your wedding but we were not disappointed. The atmosphere they created was amazing, our reception drinks and the acoustic set was magical, and then the setlist for the evening had all our guests up dancing for the entire night!! Guests chose to take a break from the dance floor when the band had a break, but were soon back up as soon as they came back on. Its always hard catering for all age groups but they played songs from their set list spanning various eras, and as they were so good musically and vocally they appealed to all. Our guests were all so complimentary: ‘best wedding band i’ve ever heard’, ‘I want to steal them for our wedding’ were comments given by our guests as well as other comments below. Groove Anatomy played such a HUGE part in making our wedding the perfect day and creating such an amazing atmosphere… I’m so grateful to them and cannot recommend them highly enough! You wont be disappointed!” Nicola & Dominic, October 2013

“Modern, young and bang on trend, in terms of the covers they were doing and their performance. They were also really enjoying themselves and you could tell they loved what they did as it reflected in their playing. All in all they were outstanding and very professional!”
Natalie – Guest at Nicola & Dominic’s Wedding October 2013

“From a perfect acoustic session whilst guests are relaxing & getting to know each other before the wedding breakfast, to everyone tapping their feet, and dancing together on the dance floor. A selection of all the songs you ever wanted to those you didn’t realise you needed, you couldn’t help but sing along. They left us all wanting more! And helped make the day so perfect!!” Caroline – Guest at Nicola & Dominic’s Wedding October 2013

“Amazing guys, amazing band, they kept the dance floor full all night and were loads of fun! Everyone commented on how great they were! Couldn’t have asked for anymore…” Kate and Lee, September 2013

“Just wanted to send you a quick message of thanks for your performance at our wedding on the 1st of September. Prior to the wedding the communication was great and on the day you were punctual and approachable. The fact that you learned a song especially for our first dance was fantastic and really made the first dance special and memorable. The set list was a great mixture of old and new and my personal favourite was the cover of Rudimental “feel the love” which in my humble opinion was better than the original! Everybody was so impressed with your performance and did not want you to stop playing!

Francesca and i loved every minute of the day and your set just topped the day off for us. So many people were asking for your contact details and we can not recommend you highly enough for weddings/functions. Just hope one of our friends get married soon so we can see you again!” Ben and Francesca, September 2013

“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for performing at our wedding on 2nd August. It took us a long time to decide on a band as it was an important part of our day and we were not disappointed! You sounded fantastic and your interactive performance ensured that the dance floor was full all night! So many people commented on how fantastic you were on the night and you made the evening so memorable and lots of fun. Also, thank you for playing our first dance song – it was perfect. We would definitely recommend you.” Fiona and Pratik, August 2013

“The Groove were brilliant, did not disappoint! The dancefloor was full and everyone commented how great they were. All the guests thought you were brilliant and you kept everyone up and dancing all night. I will certainly be recommending you to my friends”, Emily Picken, August 2013

“We cannot thank The Groove enough for their performance on Saturday at our marriage blessing – they completely made our event. They are the perfect mix of personal and professional and were more than happy fitting into our celebration on the day. Overall, we cannot recommend The Groove highly enough. Everyone was asking us where we got them from and we would not hesitate to use them again.”, Laura Budgen, July 2013

“I would like to thank you and the band for your exceptional performance at our wedding. Everyone we spoke to commented on how good The Groove were. The set choice was brilliant and catered to everyone.  The first dance song was performed perfectly and we will never forget it. Thank you so much for making our reception a night that everyone will never forget.”, Ian O’Brien, June 2013

“The Groove were absolutely fantastic, and really did make our wedding day, the quality and standard was unbelievably good and they were professional and keen to make it a personal experience for us. The band even came to find me afterwards to check that I’d enjoyed the music which was a lovely touch. I can’t recommend The Groove highly enough.”, Natalie Hirst, April 2013

“The Groove are absolutely fantastic! Great communication, on time and flexible during our wedding. They were very accommodating as we chose our first dance late and they were fabulous.

Thank you again, we couldn’t have asked for a better band! Everyone old and new loved it!”, Zoe & James, February 2013

“Thank you for last night, you were brilliant & made for a truly wonderful evening!!”, Matt Francis, December 2012

“We had The Groove play the evening reception at our Wedding and they were quite simply – FABULOUS!! From beginning to end the dance floor was full of people dancing and singing along! The music sounded great and the atmosphere really came alive whenever they were on stage. We had so many comments from our guests saying how good they were – many who never wanted them to stop playing!! Our experience with the band, both on the night and in preparation, was nothing but professional and friendly. The service they gave us was second to none and they were very helpful in letting us tailor the playlist to our musical tastes and that of our guests. We and our guests have great memories of being on the dance floor, which made our Wedding night so special, and we have The Groove to thank for that. We can’t recommend them enough!!”, Matt Penrose, October 2012

“If ANYONE is after a band – they NEED to use The Groove – they absolutely rocked our dance-floor – it was absolutely totally out of control and beyond amazing! The Groove band were without question THE hit of the day – they were implausibly brilliant from beginning to end and not one guest hasn’t mentioned how fantastic they were – even my wee piano playing granny.”, Alex Pugh, August 2012
