Just emailing to say a big thank from all of us for providing us with fantastic entertainment at our 40th party. Everything about the band was spot on, great music and vocals, really got the party going and had that personal touch. Thank the girls for allowing Julie and myself to get up and sing with them or try to!! Was quite anxious about booking a band by just seeing them on the internet but you really exceeded expectations. The feedback from our guests was very positive too. I would certainly recommend Groovething to anyone wishing to hire a band. Once again a very big thank you!"

Groovething provided quality music which created and enhanced the atmosphere of the whole event through getting people off their seats and up dancing to music from the 70s through to present day. They were absolutely spectacular, looked superb, gave 150% effort and actually looked like they enjoyed what they did!
