GrooveTown is the premier do it all, play it all party band! We will do whatever it takes to make your occasion exactly what you wanted. Our song list is so versatile that we can play whole shows in one genre of music or play everything from the 40's to today. GrooveTown shows are nonstop music from beginning to end with plenty of choreography and crowd participation. There is not a show that we cannot handle , whether big or small GrooveTown band will help to make your event one to remember.
We will go the extra mile to make sure that you have the entertainment that you want including attire! We can dress in anything from formal suits to 70's funky to flashy motown or whatever you want the band at your event to look like. We can also add a female vocalist to the band upon request.
GrooveTown is different than many other party/cover bands because we're not that cheesy, boring, cover band that everybody hears at a lot of events. Every member of GrooveTown is an artist and incredible musician so you are not going to hear a whole show of boring cover tunes performed by amateurish musicians. Instead, you are going to get a group of very talented artists playing everybody's favorite tunes who know how to get any crowd going or any party started!
Hey Harry, Since Kelsey is on her honeymoon, I will just take the time to say how great Groovetown was. We thoroughly enjoyed them, their music was great, and no one wanted the night to end. It was a perfect match for us. I'd like to have another party just to hear them play. A wonderful evening.

Lee and the guys from Groovetown are AMAZING! So friendly, accommodated our needs (played acoustic during cocktail hour and rocked the party hours!); guests were on the dance floor non stop until we had to leave, which is exactly what we wanted! Lots of personality and played all the right songs to keep the mood going. My father loved them too! :) We are so grateful that you recommended them through our wedding team Loluma, we couldn't have asked for a better band!! Many MAHALO'S!

GrooveTown performed for my wedding and they were better than I ever could have imagined. Everything was spot-on: Their professionalism, sound, song choices, sound level and balance were perfect. Along with music for the reception, we also had Groovetown play a jazz set for our cocktail hour. We couldn't have hired a better jazz group, and GrooveTown's ability to effortlessly flow from jazz to dance music saved us a ton of headache by not having to hire a second ensemble. I can honestly say that they are the best wedding band I ever have heard. GrooveTown was youthful, yet professional, played old classics and new hits that any age could enjoy.
Wow, what can I say that will thoroughly tell you how much everyone loved, loved Groovetown. Absolutely awesome from beginning to end. "Epic" is how one guest described it. And Wendy Dorman, the Director of Events at TSC said you were the best band to ever perform and there have been several. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you guys....outstanding!

I'm Daniel's dad....last Sunday. You guys are simply fabulous. I think I got a AAAA+ rating in for you on Wedding Wire. I struggled with The Knot.
Based on what I saw on Wedding Wire we are just another 5.0 rating ...as it should be.
As I said in my review, I fancy myself as a musician. In retrospect I would have loved to sit in on one number with my little vintage soprano sax (for your benefit, Conn Chu Berry silver curved 1929, with the big thumb ring). I can be pretty critical. I couldn't think of anything you guys did that wasn't absolutely fabulous. As I also said in my review, friends from Wisconsin were calculating how much it would cost to get you there for a wedding. Please share our thanks with each member of the band. To a person you are fabulous musicians, and taken together, I don't have words for how happy I was that you were the band at this wedding!

I cannot put into words how happy we were with Groovetown. They made our wedding so much more special and amazing. Every single guest told us that it was the best part of our wedding.

Steve - Thank you so much! I can't tell you enough what an amazing experience we had with Groovetown! They were everything I had hoped for and more! I'd love to bring them back for an anniversary party in the next few years! Please tell them again that ALL of my guests have talked about what a wonderful band they were!
Thanks so much,

We were absolutely delighted with the Groovetown band for our daughter's wedding reception. The musical selections were just perfectly suited to our audience, and the only trouble we had was getting people to sit down to eat their food, since they were too busy dancing! The talent and energy and enthusiasm of the group was just infectious. We would recommend Groovetown band as the "must have" band for any wedding reception, especially one for a lively Jewish wedding like ours! Thank you, Groovetown!!

Hey Scott - Everything went great! The band was wonderful and really did a great job! They definitely kept the party going and were great about letting the girls dance on stage and even one of our friends jump on the piano and play with them. It was definitely a party and they were great! We got a ton of compliments about what a great band they were!
Lindsey M. (April 21st, 2012)
They were fantastic! I was so very pleased and so was the GFOASC committee. I appreciate their flexibility and the wonderful music. Again, they were fantastic!
Thank you very much and I will be telling everyone I know about them!

Graham - We had a phenomenal time on Friday night. Groovetown was killing it and the rushees and girls all loved it. Working with them was a breeze and we'll definitely be wanting them back at the Hall at sometime in the future.

You guys were beyond unbelievable!! Everyone was coming up to us, telling us how awesome the Band was!! Of course you all know this already. :-)
I just wanted to "Thank You" for listening to my endless emails & concerns. You were so very nice in helping & directing me. You know we parents can get a little loopie towards the end. Ha Ha!
You guys were very professional & sounded AWESOME!! When we have another big celebration, you guys will be the ones we go to!

Hi JR! Everyone thought Groovetown was the best. They had the whole crowd dancing, singing and moving to the beat! I know Susan was happy with her choice ahead of time and they did not disappoint. Thank you for all your communications and assurances that all would be fine. Lee was professional as well. Pinehurst was definitely rocking Saturday night June 15th.
With much appreciation,

Hi Brandon, I hope you guys are doing well. I apologize for taking so long to get back to you. It's been a busy few weeks. Let me start by saying that I have absolutely no doubt that no other band (well, possibly Aerosmith) would have made our wedding night any better. A pretty good indication is that many people that weren't even at the wedding have been telling me that they heard what a great band we had. You guys were incredibly versatile musically (thanks for Smoke On The Water and I am so, so sorry for The Chicken Dance). The wide selection of songs you covered were perfect, not only for the occasion, but to appease everybody's musical tastes. This affected me particulary because I was stressed about selecting the song list before the wedding. I was happy to turn that duty over to you guys, and I was ecstatic with the results. You had an amazing way of making everybody in the wedding feel comfortable and involved. Everytime I looked up you guys were interacting with people and watching them smile and laugh made the night that much better. The video of my wife's 90 year old grandmother dancing the whole night is proof enough. By the end of the night, I felt like I'd known all of you for a long time which made me appreciate you guys that much more. Thanks for an incredible experience. My wife and I are certain that the night was perfect largely due to you guys.
Groovetown was excellent and exceeded my expectations. All night people told me how great they thought the band was. They were very professional and a lot of fun. I really appreciate all of your help with everything!

Every single request was honored and they were more than happy to listen to requests from the audience and to shake things up. The MOST flexible and responsive band that we have worked with to date. (I) canncot say enough positive things about the band ... they were excellent; kept the excitement going, listened to the audience, bonded with the folks on the dance floor and made everybody smile. They were THE PERFECT party band. Just a great mix. Men, women, dancers, non-dancers all loved them. People who hadn't danced in years were on the floor. Unbelievable.
They made our party.
WOW, in the past few weeks we have gotten TONS of compliments on your performance. YOU ALL WERE AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We had an incredible time and so did everyone else .... everyone RAVED about you and your music. My photographers came up to me during the reception to ask who you were as they have heard LOTS of bands, and said they had never heard a group as great as you all. You knew how to keep the crowd interested ... you knew exactly what kind of songs to play. Rodney and I wished we could have danced all night as you all were so great and SO MUCH FUN!!!! We cannot put into words how totally amazing you were. Our families sincerely appreciate the job you did. You all were most professional, fun and sounded amazing!!! Please express our sincere gratitude to everyone in the band!!! Because of your performance our wedding reception was everything we envisioned it would be. You all were a hit. Anyway, our sincere thanks for making our wedding reception most memorable. I hope that friends of ours in the future will use you at their events as my family and I will be highly recommending you to others!!!!
We could not have been more pleased with GrooveTown. They were great to work with ahead of time (I emailed with Lee Johnson several times) and on the day of. They sounded great and played a good variety of music within the guidelines of genres that I asked for. They really kept everyone dancing the entire time, and several people complimented them or asked me who they were during the reception. I was impressed that they only required one break during the evening, which helped to keep the dance floor full. We really have only positive things to say about GrooveTown -- they made our reception a success.
