Love this band! So fun!

Did the Grooves really deserve 5 stars? YES! I am still smiling from my party. We had a gathering of about 100 outdoors. It rained. So what did the band do? They went with the flow... problem solved any rain problem that got in our way and rocked our party. We couldn't have been happier. When you book a vendor and they help you through a stressful situation- right then and there... I knew the party would be great.
On to the performance! From Abba to Dua Lipa! EVERYONE was out of their seats dancing. The band sounded great and they were fun. They had a set list that appealed to everyone.
Hire this band. Your guests will be talking about your party for months!
