Here’s some recent feedback we have received from our lovely clients

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!!!!

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

The Ultimate Wedding Band Guide

Never booked a band before to play at your event? Check out some tips from getting the best out of the day.

What Music will a Wedding Band play?

Typically we like to play a mix of material from various genres and from the 50’s right through to this year’s hits. We can play songs from artists such as:

Stevie WonderBruno MarsAmy Winehouse
PrinceMichael JacksonChic
The SupremesEd SheeranBon Jovi
Whitney HoustonElvis PresleyThe Killers
The BeatlesQueenJames Brown

Should I hire a band for my wedding, would they be suitable for my event?

Usually we are the headline event in the evening and we like to end the day with a real bang, providing music to dance to and to give you and your guests a high energy and memorable ‘crescendo’ to the day.  Don’t forget we also can provide some more low key live music for during the wedding breakfast or during the wedding drinks reception, for more information see our additional options page. A wedding band can also personalise the evening by playing your first dance and can provide a DJ service so that you have entertainment throughout the night.

It can work out considerable cheaper to hire one band for the whole day as travel costs are already included and the PA and lighting will have been included.

Space Considerations

Bear in mind that the larger the live band, the more space they will require. Our smallest line-up is the 5-piece which needs 4m x 3m and the biggest is the 8-piece which needs 5m x 3.

How long will a Live Wedding Band take to setup?

Usually we take around an hour to get setup and be ready to play some background music and then an extra 30 minutes to get changed before we are ready to play some live music. These timings depend a little on access and whether we need to use a lift (which will mean times are a little longer).

I’d like to hire a band, what will they need at the Venue?

An appropriately sized, flat and safe stage or performance area

Parking provision with easy access to the function room

Somewhere secure to get changed (no toilets please) and to store valuables

Power – a minimum of four 13 amp power sockets

Refreshments: hot meals for each member of the band and support and soft drinks for the duration of their booking

How long will a Wedding Band play for?

We typically play 2 x 45 minute sets if performing as the 5-piece option and then 2 x 60 minutes as a 6-piece or 8-piece. Sometimes we split the 2 hours into 3 x 40 minute sets if this fits with the evening buffet a little better.  We’re completely flexible in the evening in case your timings move around a little,  and usually take a break of around 15-30 minutes between sets, during which time we will provide background music.
