We’re The Groovy Cats - a professional party band that will make your event special. Since 2013, we’ve been playing around the UK & Europe - at weddings, parties, functions and even ski resorts.

As a group of pro musicians, we care about two things: making your event a night to remember & filling your dance floor all night.

Our influences are really varied - we love to play funk influenced songs from Prince and James Brown and then get everyone singing with a classic. We've got a huge repertoire, which means we can tailor our set list to the event, making sure everyone has a great night.

I contacted the Groovy Cats as we were interested in the band performing at our work's Christmas party. Once we were put in contact with the band, they were very responsive and more than willing to help with the 100's of questions I kept throwing in their direction. Although I did not attend the party, The Groovy Cats got numerous mentions and an outstanding amount of praise. We sent out an internal survey to get some feedback on the event and the music/band appeared countless times with many comments requesting The Groovy Cats for our next party. You really delivered beyond our expectations and I cannot thank you enough. Antonia

We booked the Groovy Cats for our Christmas Party and they were fantastic! We have had endless feedback from the team members to say how great they were and how much they enjoyed the range of music! Would definitely recommend :)

"What can I say? You did Pudsey proud. You‘re a lovely bunch of chaps who transformed our BBC outside broadcast and really brought the party to life. Thank you again for your commitment and sense of fun. And you looked damn cool while doing it.
Thank you, if I ever get married again I am booking you. (Just don’t tell my wife, it’s not like I am using her Facebook log in or anything.)"

Absolutely flipping amazing band! Honestly, the band made a fabulous evening truely spectacular! I couldn’t rave about them more and neither could the guests. We would have another party just to have them play again. Thank you Oliver and the band! You guys are professional, read the crowd 100% and were simply fabulous xxx
