Here’s some recent feedback we have received from our lovely clients:
“Groovething played for our wedding night at the Merewood Country House hotel, Windermere. From the outset, Paul was extremely helpful during the booking process and responded quickly to all of our questions and queries. The band offer an extensive playlist and fulfilled all of our requests and much more! On arrival at the venue, they set up quickly and efficiently without any disturbance to our guests. The band played three Jam-packed sets and provided a DJ service in between. Their arrangements and medleys were fantastic and kept the dance floor lively all night! We would highly recommend the group to others planning a similar event and we hope to see them perform again in the future!”

‘Just emailing to say a big thank from all of us for providing us with fantastic entertainment at our 40th party. Everything about the band was spot on, great music and vocals, really got the party going and had that personal touch. Thank the girls for allowing Julie and myself to get up and sing with them or try to!! I was quite anxious about booking a band by justing seeing them on the internet but you really exceeded expectations. The feedback from our guests was very positive too. I would certainly recommend Groovething to anyone wishing to hire a band. Once again a very big thank you!’

Please pass our thanks to both the band and the DJ, you were brilliant and had everyone up dancing for the whole evening and also did a fantastic job on our 1st dance song. So many people commenting on how good the whole set was! We couldn’t have asked for a better band to play at our wedding.”
James & Henriette, Wedding Reception, Rudding Park
“I wanted to extend our warmest thanks to you for a wonderful performance at our wedding. You were even better than we remembered from last year and were delighted the guests thought so too! Your music captured the mood of the day and re-energised the guests after a long session of drinking and eating beforehand. We will, of course, continue to recommend Groovething to friends and family for the future!”
Adam Stage, Wedding Reception, Reading
“Thank you so much. EVERYONE really enjoyed your performance and I can’t tell how many lovely complements you got on the night and are guests are still all talking about you now.

Victoria and Matt, Wedding Reception @ Peover Golf Club
‘The band were excellent on the night. A lot of people commented to us during and afterwards how good you all were – the music choices were perfect and were performed brilliantly. You kept the pace up and the music going continuously through the sets and it was exactly what we were after, worth every penny. Our only regret is not pricing you up to perform for longer! Of all the things we spent money on for the wedding, a live band was a “must” for us, and you did not disappoint’
Tim and Rachel, Wedding Reception at Belle Epoque, Knutsford
‘Thank you all so much for your amazing performance, we thought you were all fantastic and incredibly professional! Once we started dancing we just couldn’t stop, it was hit after hit, we just couldn’t help but dance. You really added something extra special to the whole occasion and I really felt you made it effortless from my side, so thank you for being so good at your job. Also thank you so much for learning our first dance song, I thought it was perfect, thank you – we were blown away!’

‘I held my 10th Charity Moon & Stars Ball on Saturday night in aid of Cancer Research UK. My dealings with Groovething have been exceptional from day one, they were complete professionals on the night meeting all my itinerary times. The dance floor was full all night with the music catering for everybody there. Complete professionals I can not recommend them highly enough and look forward to working with them again at next year’s event! Thank you Groovething you are one special find!!
Clare Marsh, Cancer Research Fundraiser, Carden Park, Cheshire
‘Thank you for helping to make our day so special. We’ve had lots of feedback from friends and family who all said that they have never been to a wedding that was better suited to the Bride and Groom! Having a live band play, and a large live band like yourselves, really set the night off with a bang! From our first dance to our last the dance floor was full. In fact even whilst you were doing your sound check you had people off their seats and onto the dance floor! There was no need for a playlist for you to DJ to as our guests took the time between sets to catch their breath and have a sneaky drink. Our last dance and exit from the marquee will stick in our memories for a long time. It was so nice to have everyone up and involved. As we were getting into our taxi both Kate and I thought about running back in to the marquee because the music was so good!’
Tim Harford, Wedding Reception, Ashton Hayes, Cheshire
‘Groovething were definitely the perfect choice for the evening entertainment and music at our wedding at Peover Golf Club. You kept the dance floor full from our first dance to the last song of the night!! The atmosphere you created was magical – something we’ll never forget! The fact that you learned two songs for us made it all the more special – we really appreciated the effort that was put in for us, very obliging. It was a great mix of old and new, and lots of our guests commented on the brilliant music – including wanting to know where you play!! We would recommend you to anyone, thank you so much for ensuring that we had the time of our lives on the greatest day!!!!’
Sarah & Jon, Peover Golf Club, Wedding Reception

‘Groovething played at our wedding in January 2012. Live music was so important to us and the band were so professional, nothing was too much trouble. They (expertly) learned 2 extra songs for us, which completely made our night and the girls both sounded absolutely gorgeous. They really got the party started and it would not have been the same without them! Thank you to the band so much – we would not hesitate to book them again and recommend them to everyone we know! You guys made the night all that more special for us and we cannot thank you enough.

‘Christine and I want to sincerely thank you for playing at our UK wedding in Denshaw on 14 January 2012. Not only did we thoroughly enjoy your show, but all of our guests did as well. It was particularly nice to see people dancing that hadn’t danced in a very long time. We were impressed with Groovething from the time we began enquiring about availability right on through the wedding. We found that your website was informative and straightforward. When we contacted you, the response was prompt and professional. We found that professionalism was the standard throughout. We were very pleased to have chosen the 8-piece band. The musicianship and vocals were splendid. Thank you again for a first class experience. ‘
Skip Lafferty, Wedding Reception
