We debated for MONTHS about whether to have a band or a DJ at our waterfront backyard wedding - we finally decided to go see Groove Authority at one of their showcases (which they do every week, a little private performance so you can hear how awesome they are) and knew we had to book them. Hiring Groove Authority was by far the BEST decision we made for our wedding! Do not waste your money on any other silly little details that people won't even notice.. make hiring this band your #1 priority and your wedding will be the best wedding your friends and family have been to in a long time, period!! I can't even tell you how many people said that the band was awesome and the best part of the wedding.. we still have people asking us for the name of the band and begging us to have a party just so we can have them play again! Every member of Groove Authority is great with their own distinct personality. The crowd interaction was so much fun and they even put up with one of my drunk friends who wanted to bang on the tambourine all night long. =) Jennie, the lead singer, is OUT OF THIS WORLD AMAZING - the best voice I have ever heard live. Her singing during our first song even made some of my tough guy friends tear up. So go on, call them, NOW! Thank you Groove Authority!!!

Groove Authority was the band at my daughter's wedding last weekend. What is a wedding without good music! This wedding band is spectacular. Paul, the leader, works closely with you to make sure you get to hear the songs that you want. Their lead singers are amazing. Everyone danced until the end with an encore! We planned our wedding date around this band, and we are so glad that we did! Groove Authority is an outstanding band, and our guests could not say enough about them.

Our wedding was the perfect day - in large part thanks to Groove Authority! They created such a fun, party atmosphere - none of our guests wanted the night to end. Playing a variety of songs, from the Beatles to Taylor Swift, Groove Authority got every single guest at our wedding up and dancing the night away. We couldn't have asked for a better, more fun evening - Groove Authority went above and beyond and exceeded my expectations.

In addition to being the best wedding band around, Paul was easy to communicate with and very responsive over the course of our wedding planning process. Not only did he respond to any questions or concerns, but he worked with us to create the best timeline for the evening. I would have been lost without his expertise, and with his help and excellent MC skills, the night went off without a hitch.

Even a few weeks later, I'm still getting feedback from our guests about how amazing the band was. Groove Authority was one of the very best decisions we made in planning our wedding, and I would recommend their talents to anyone.

Working with Groove Authority for our wedding was such a pleasure and they did an incredible job. Paul made everything very easy throughout the planning process, from payment to organizing introductions to making song requests, he was awesome. Many of our guests commented on how amazing the band was and we could not have been happier with their service. Groove authority came recommended to us from 2 of our other vendors, and I figured they knew what they were talking about. And they really do! I would absolutely recommend Groove Authority to anyone looking for a wedding band--you will not be disappointed!

From the minute we contacted Groove Authority about playing our wedding in Hartford, we had a great experience. Paul did a great job coordinating with us on special requests for songs and was always quick to respond to emails or calls to answer all our questions. Our special dance songs weren't on the band's list, but they assured us they'd be able to handle it and they delivered! We loved how amazing our first dance song sounded live instead of on an ipod.

The band played an AMAZING show! Everyone said it was the best wedding ban they've ever heard and we couldn't agree more. They had the whole crowd, from our 2-year old nieces and nephews to our grandparents, dancing all night long. They paid attention to the smallest of details, making sure we were on the dance floor and not tied up doing photos before playing a few of our favorites.

We'd recommend this band to anyone looking for a great band for any event!

Not much more can be said that hasn't already (just hire them), so here's a unique take... I'm a bit of a music snob—I used to perform myself, as well as running live sound at a small venue, so I was looking for real pros for our wedding. After seeing them once, I knew they were THE band to get.

(1) I requested a super obscure "first dance" song and wanted some specific changes to it. They totally nailed it, from the change in lyrics to change in tempo. It was perfect.

(2) My brother and I wanted to jam with the band for a few songs as a "surprise". Not only did they let us jam to two songs from their list—we did it completely unrehearsed and THEY are SO good, they even made my brother and I sound okay (not having played with a live band in years). Our guests were surprised, impressed, and I don't think we could have pulled it off with a lesser band.

GA really knocked it out the park, like others have said. Our guests were raving about them during and after the wedding... and EVERYBODY was dancing, which even we were surprised about.

My father said "it's like being at a rock concert—there just happens to be a wedding here tonight too." Ha.

They made an already special night just incredibly outstanding. We'll have to renew our vows just so we can hire them again.

We hired groove authority for our wedding. We absolutely loved them. If you are looking for a band to get everyone dancing this is the one to hire. I have had multiple guests tell me how much fun they were and that they want to book them for their own wedding. Paul is so easy to work with and very accommodating. They have a great list of songs to pick from and you can give them as much or as little direction as you want. They truly made our reception the best night ever. I highly suggest booking them for your next event.

Groove Authority far exceeded my expectations from start to finish. Paul Fudin (band member and primary contact) was extremely easy to work with and made planning effortless. I can't thank him enough for all of his time and attention to detail. Our wedding day went by so fast, but one of my fondest memories was of Groove Authority. They are all talented musicians/vocalists and covered our favorite songs perfectly. Initially I was concerned about hiring a band because at previous weddings I’ve attended, the music was sub-par. I've learned that live band doesn’t always mean higher quality music. However, each and every song performed by Groove Authority was flawless, and they had our guests dancing and laughing all evening. They transformed our event and made the reception a truly memorable experience. Out of all the wedding expenses, the money spent on hiring Groove Authority was one of our best decisions. Immediately after our wedding, my husband and I tried to think of another party we could host, just so we could hire them again! THANK YOU guys (and gal) so very much!
