Celebrate a special birthday, where the party will be held indoors. I have two pianos..... One upright in the conservatory ( has a beautiful sound ) & a baby grand in the sitting room. I would like a sophisticated mix of music, Jools Holland, Jaime Cullum kind of thing?? The party guests will be a wide range of ages... So a little something to appeal to everyone.

- North Yorkshire, North Yorkshire
wedding at Kettlesing Village Hall, North Yorkshire.
Looking for a band for the evening time - approx 7.30 until midnight.
You came recommended from a friend!
Just after rough idea of prices also.
Firstly I have looked high and low for a laid back guitarist/vocalist for our festival inspired wedding next year, I came across your profile today on poptop and I so so hope your free on our date as what you play is absolutely perfect and you sound amazing.
Our wedding is being held on our friends farm in Burnsall, North Yorkshire on Saturday 28th May 2016. We are having a really laid back day, with our ceremony at 1pm with then field games, lots of beer, lots of wine, a ton of BBQ and loads of laughter after. I was hoping you would play before during and after the ceremony? Probably a good four hours of relaxing, chilled gorgeous music....
We will supply you with all the BBQ and beer you fancy on the day.
Really looking forward to your response.
We would like a string quartet to play during the entry/exit of our wedding ceremony and then perhaps outside (weather permitting) during the drinks reception.
We have chosen one classical and one modern piece for the entry/exit.
We had our expectations well and truly exceeded by this band, with their lively, up-tempo style that got everyone down onto the dance floor. We had quite a few professional musicians among our guests, and they were really impressed by the band's musical abilities. As for us, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Some covers bands can be a little on the boring side - but not Jazz Spivs! We loved them!
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!
