What event planners say about our suppliers


Rare Groove were AMAZING! If you are looking for a band for your event, look no further. Sign them up today - just brilliant! The band couldn't have been more accommodating, allowing us to choose our own set list, for the live sets and the dj sets, were communicative and flexible throughout, and were charming when we met them at one of their pub gig nights in London beforehand. They had our wedding guests dancing all night, with the venue rocking. Shared playful banter with the guests, and were just a delight. I would not hesitate to book them again if I had another event in the future, and would recommend them to anyone. We have received nothing but good feedback and praise from our wedding guests. Thank you so much Rare Groove, you were awesome! Matt


"Thank you to you and the rest of the band for such a fantastic set of music on Saturday. You guys are absolutely fantastic and we totally loved it!!!! As did all of our guests. So many people were asking how we found you and if they could have your contact details - Thank you so much!" Lauren & Mitch,


I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you, the singers and pianist for the AMAZING job they did on Saturday. They were all absolutely fantastic and it brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it now. We’ve had such lovely feedback from everyone that came on Saturday and the main thing that has really touched us is that they have all raved about how wonderful the ceremony was and how “Joyous” the choir made the service. So from the bottom of our hearts I just wanted to say thank you so much for making our wedding so lovely. We cannot thank you enough. We’ll be writing you a lovely review when we get back from honeymoon.   Best wishes, The Trotmans J xxxx
