Paul, the band leader was very easy to work with. He had a form that we filled out and made accommodations for special songs we requested.

Most importantly, all of my guests commented on how awesome the band was. They had everyone dancing the whole night, it was an incredibly fun reception thanks to Groove Authority!

Also, Paul helped me come up with an initial timeline for the reception, I found it especially helpful since I hadn't particularly paid attention to this at other weddings.

Groove Authority is AWESOME! From the beginning of our wedding planning to the end, Paul and his crew were a huge help. They were professional and made what could be a stressful process very smooth and easy. All of our guests raved about them the night of our wedding. From the ceremony music, to the cocktail hour, to the reception, Groove Authority kept the energy going all night and created a night we will always remember. Highly recommended! Thanks Groove Authority!!

We've all been to a lot of weddings. Some bands are good, some are not. Some bands are impressionists who are happy to fade into the background of an event, doing just enough so that nobody really notices. And some bands, like Groove Authority, are the engine that drives the party.

Early in our band hunt, we were looking into another group, but they were booked on our weekend. That band leader wasted no time in recommending Groove Authority, telling me we couldn't do better. So I called Paul, the GA band leader, and right away my wife and I enjoyed his easy-going manner (and don't get easy-going confused with unprofessional... Paul was terrific, keeping in touch with us as we approached the date, asking questions he needed answered... but his easy-going manner made my wife and I feel good about the collaboration). When we told him that this would be a semi-casual, clambake house event full of fun-loving, gin-drinking party people, and that we wanted a band that would keep the energy up, I believe his response was, "we can do that."

And they did. First of all, they learned a Van Morrison song for our first dance. We had this kind of ridiculous idea for introducing the members of the wedding party, and I gave Paul a script and he said, in his classic-Paul way, "no problem." The song sounded wonderful, just as we'd imagined, and the whole thing was seamless.

Then the dancing started. They had great guitarists, keyboards, sax, and a relentless drummer who kept the party moving for five hours. The keyboardist even pulled out a trumpet from time to time, which was awesome! The two vocalists were fabulous. They were charismatic, interactive and really fun.

All I heard all night was, "Who ARE these guys?" It was a great party! We wanted an old-school, college-house dance party, and Groove Authority delivered. They read the room perfectly and the dance floor was never empty all night long. I wish I could do it again!

My wife and I love dancing to hip-hop and top 40 music and it was really important to us to find a band that excelled at these genres in addition to more standard fare so after hearing clips of Groove Authority and watching some of their videos (Crazy in Love sold us!), they were our top choice to hire. They not only met our expectations but far exceeded them!

Paul was super nice and easy to work with and extremely knowledgable, helping guide us through the reception timeline.

The band had a fantastic read on the crowd and always knew exactly what to play next. They had so many people up and dancing, the dance floor was totally full and people were dancing around the sides in the grass - it was awesome!

GA also took the time to learn not just one but two songs for us, and they hit them out of the park. We hope that future couples will benefit from these two great songs because we had a blast hearing them and dancing to them.

The musicians were so much fun while performing, it felt like they were our friends; it was so fun to have them occasionally come out in the crowd and dance with us and sing from the dance floor. They all sounded amazing and the lead singers were especially baller!

Groove Authority not only contributed to the best day of our lives but they really made it happen. Epically awesome party, wish we could do it all over again!

Groove Authority is a band you can't pass up for your wedding! They will make everyone, including yourself, have the best wedding possible. Paul is so quick and easy to get ahold of and he is easy to talk to about concerns and just how the day will flow. They have so many songs to choose from that it there is no real issues with trying to find good songs for certain things. Our vendors and reception site couldn't stop giving us compliments about them. They are by far one of the best bands we have heard at a wedding. If you want to have a wedding that no one will forget, you want Groove Authority. You will not be disappointed. I loved working with them for my wedding, and you will too!

We want to express our deepest thanks to all the members of Groove Authority for
an exciting, inspiring, and first-class performance at our wedding! They are the consummate professionals, and each member has such abundant talent. In addition, Paul Fudin is a wonderful Emcee, a great band leader and musician, and a pleasure to work with. He was such an important element in the planning and success of our wedding. We so grateful
to him! As for the reaction from the guests, we continue to get raves from
everyone that attended. Comments like, "the best band I've ever
heard!" keep coming from friends and family, many of whom wrote down
the name of the band for future reference. Their amazing vocalists
garnered particular praise. They are all so great to watch as well as
listen to! They had people dancing who never usually dance! None of
us will ever forget their great performance.

I wish I could throw another wedding just to use this band again- 100% satisfied and worth every cent!
