We can’t thank Groove Allstars enough for their professional approach and outstanding performance at our wedding in the Wylam Brewery. We booked the 8 piece band (male and female singers plus brass) and they literally had the whole wedding dancing all night. They were very accommodating with learning our first dance and also let us select a load of songs off their repertoire to work into their current set list. Can’t recommend these guys enough!!

I attend a large number of events a year with my job and I can say with a shadow of doubt that Grove all starts are the best band I’ve seen. Every song was a floor filler the way they got the whole room dancing all night was amazing. I would highly recommend this band for any occasion you won’t be disappointed.

"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!""

"We were absolutely delighted with the Groove Allstars band and they exceeded all our expectations. The soul and funk had everyone dancing from the first dance to the end of the evening - and there were some first class dance-offs. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
