For such an occasion with a mix of ages and tastes it is not always easy to find the right band and music mix to suit everyone.

"We can't thank Groove Allstars enough for the amazing service they provided pre-wedding, and the quality of their music on the evening of our big day itself.
Emails and arrangements were sorted quickly and efficiently and the band were true professionals. They were able to accommodate our requests and were able to answer all our questions. Everyone was up dancing and had a fab evening which speaks for itself.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to close friends and family and they were an absolute pleasure to hire - Book them today - you won't regret it!""
