Groove Authority Will Make Your Wedding PERFECT.

I cannot express enough how absolutely thrilled my husband and I were with the phenomenal performance of Groove Authority at our wedding. From the moment we started communicating with Paul Fudin, we knew we were in great hands. His responsiveness, friendliness, and enthusiasm set the tone for an incredible experience. Paul took the time to truly understand our vision and worked tirelessly with Groove Authority to bring it to life.

During the ceremony and cocktail hour, the duo playing the keyboard, flute, and sax provided the most beautiful and perfect music imaginable. They learned the instrumental versions of our chosen songs, including the processional, bridal march, and recessional, and their performance added a magical touch to the entire affair.

When it was time for the reception, Groove Authority's full 8-person band truly shined. They not only created an incredible atmosphere but also played a crucial role in ensuring the entire timeline ran seamlessly. Their expertise and professionalism were second to none.

The first dance was an unforgettable moment. Groove Authority learned "How Long Will I Love You" by Ellie Goulding for us, and their rendition was simply breathtaking. And let me tell you, they absolutely nailed our specific request for the father/daughter dance. The female vocalist's cover of Miley Cyrus's "Wildflowers," complete with the impressive octave jump during the last verse, left us and our guests in awe.

But where Groove Authority truly stole the show was on the dance floor. They had everyone, regardless of age, on their feet all night long. Their versatility was astonishing, effortlessly transitioning from Motown to Blink 182, Spice Girls to Pitbull – they played every song to perfection and it was pure magic.

One standout moment was when one of the vocalists ventured onto the dance floor, passing around the microphone while the guitarist played guitar behind his head – it was a true showstopper that had everyone cheering and dancing along with pure joy.

The power of Groove Authority's performance was evident when the venue, known for its strict closing time, made a special exception to let the reception run a few minutes longer due to the overwhelming love for the band. The crowd's chant for "ONE MORE SONG" was met with enthusiasm, leaving us all on an incredible high.

The compliments from our guests were endless, with many declaring Groove Authority as the best wedding band they had ever seen.

To anyone planning an event, I implore you to HIRE GROOVE AUTHORITY AND DO NOT LOOK BACK! They possess a unique ability to elevate any special occasion to new heights. Their talent, energy, and ability to read the room are unparalleled. Groove Authority made our wedding a truly unforgettable and joyous celebration, and we cannot thank them enough for creating such precious memories that will last a lifetime!

Best investment of our wedding

Our priority for our wedding was that it was fun, and we felt that a good band is always the most fun. We chose Groove Authority based on what we could find online; we never saw them in person first. But within the first five minutes of dancing, multiple guests came up to us to say how great the band was. We were blown away by how energetic, engaging, and overall fun GA was. They were easy to work with and plan, they were flexible when our ceremony time had to be adjusted, and were overall the best investment of the wedding.

Amazing Band!

My daughter was married in March of 2024. Groove Authority was our band. We can't say enough about how wonderful they were. Almost everyone was out on the dance floor as soon as they started playing. The music was great for young and old alike. Absolutely fabulous to work with too. They really helped to make this wedding so special. Thanks Groove Authority!
