We also pride ourselves on being professional and accommodating during the planning stage. We will answer every question in a timely manner and try to accommodate any request. On top of that, we will use our extensive knowledge of events and weddings to help you plan the perfect event.
ON THE DAY
When you book The Groovy Cats, you can relax in the knowledge that your entertainment is taken care of. We will turn up early, set up our equipment in a professional manner, and get changed into our suits for the performance. We pride ourselves on our customer service and ability to mix seamlessly with the guests. Then, when we take the stage, you can guarantee that the dancefloor will be packed! We play 2X one-hour sets, building up the energy as the night progresses. Plus, we will DJ in between and after our performance (for free) to keep the guests having fun.

I really can’t thank them enough!

We booked The Groovy Cats for our wedding in June, and in short they were phenomenal!
Extremely talented, professional, good communication, and most importantly for us they really got involved with our day and our guests. Most notably having an impromptu jam session with one of our younger guests! You really made his day guys.
Now all we have to do is find an excuse to book them again....
Thanks so so much, you completed our day!
