Description

Price from: £700

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.

Check out our video below, and give us a shout!

We booked the Groovy cats for our wedding and I can honestly say they are Amazing! If you are thinking of booking them do it! I have had so many comments since the wedding from everyone about how brilliant the band were, they really did make the night! Everyone was up and dancing and the set list they played was perfect. I really can’t thank them enough!

We were fortunate to book The Groovy Cats for our Summer Corporate Event. From start to finish ultimate professionals and really nice people. The event was a great success to which the great music, sense of humour from the band members all contributed. Would recommend and book again - wait...we have booked again for our Christmas Event - Well done guys - a real pleasure - Chad

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!

The Groovy Cats Wedding Package - 2 x 45 Mins Set

Hi, Here’s how our wedding package works. - We’ll arrive at 6pm and will be set up and ready to perform by 7pm (early arrival is £100 per hour). - We play 2 x 45-minute sets. This works best after the first dance because everyone is on the dancefloor ready. - We can learn a first dance song or another favourite song for you (just give us plenty of notice!) - We’ll DJ for free in between and after our performance until midnight (it’s £150 per hour if you want us to stay later). - Although we do play over 100 songs, we don’t allow clients to choose the setlist. The reason for this is that we can keep 30-40 songs practiced to a performance standard. We believe it makes the performance much better. - We dress up in suits and waistcoats. If your wedding has a specific dress code, please give us plenty of notice. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
