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.

We choose Groove Authority based on online reviews and their You Tube videos for our wedding. From our initial phone call to Paul to inquire to our last email exchange to thank him they were an absolute pleasure to work with! Always provided us with a prompt response to any questions, have more than reasonable prices for the work they do and were super professional! Most importantly they were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!!!! I cannot even describe how awesome this band was, every single song they played sounded great and as if the actual artist was on stage. They were enthusiastic and always had a smile on their faces while performing! They were able to do any genre and always had the crowd going on the dance floor. Every single guest has made it a point to tell us how much they were blown away by the band! I cannot even count how many people have said this was "the best wedding band they had ever heard"!!!! I could not of been happier with my choice of Groove Authority for my wedding day! I HIGHLY recommend! I wish I could throw another wedding just to use this band again- 100% satisfied and worth every cent!

Hire this band now. Seriously. Stop reading and call Paul. They played our wedding in July and boy did they put on a show. Fact: they learned a couple songs we wanted to hear and played them perfectly. Fact: our wedding song and first dances were just as good as the original. Paul is great to work with and EVERYONE walked away saying how the band made the party.

If you are looking for a band with versatility, talent, and ability to sing to all generations then Groove Authority is the band you want for your wedding. They were simply amazing. Our guests danced the night away to every song and then called for more at the end of the night. There were some songs that if you closed your eyes you would swear that the actual performer was there singing! Each member of the band brings not only a musical instrument talent but their vocals are incredible.
If Groove Authority has your date available...grab and sign as fast you can. Our friends and family are still calling us saying our daughter's wedding was the best wedding they have ever attended!!

If you are looking for a band that will keep your wedding guests on the dance floor, will ensure that everyone (including the bride and groom) has a great time, and will be absolutely professional as they make sure every detail is attended to, Groove Authority is a sure thing! We chose this band for our daughter's wedding based solely on reviews and their website. You can feel their energy and enthusiasm when you watch their video clips. Besides having an amazing song list, they happily learned two special songs that we wanted. Paul responded promptly to every email we sent. He is a great guy who really wants your wedding to be the best. This band knows how to read your crowd and then how to please them. We made a list of songs we wanted, but told them we wanted them to take the liberty of adjusting it so the crowd stayed on the dance floor. They are so accommodating, they even agreed to have our trio of nephews sing one of the band's songs at my son's request. They didn't just play along; they got into it! Our guests were telling us that this was the best wedding they had been to, and we honestly believe that Groove Authority is responsible for that!

We cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience with Groove Authority! Paul, who was our contact prior to the wedding, was an absolute dream to work with. He was professional, easy and accommodating. Nothing was a big deal. He was able to set up some equipment to play our ceremony music from and a microphone and accompanying equipment for our friend to play live recessional music. During the reception, the band absolutely ROCKED IT OUT! They were a total hit. People are STILL talking about how amazing they were. They were full of energy and even got on the dance floor with us at points. They really got the party going and KEPT it going. Could not recommend these folks enough!

GA was incredible! From planning very early on to the encore on our wedding night, they rocked our world. Our guests would have kept dancing all night if we had let them. GA has very large repertoire and something for everyone. They will cater song lengths for your special songs and can adapt to anything you need. Need an iPod during breaks or cocktail hour? You got it. Need ceremony music, I'm pretty sure they do that too (we didn't use them.. but they do it!) We didn't know what we would need to plan out in terms of timing, songs, etc. and they walked us through everything. You do not want to pass up on this band, they are incredible musicians and will be the difference maker at your wedding reception!

I would highly recommend Groove Authority for anyone looking for an amazing band for an event!!

I used Groove Authority for my wedding and I honestly could not be happier, they were AMAZING!!! I can not tell you how many of our guests approached us to tell us how awesome our band was! They kept our guests dancing the entire night, and at the end of the wedding everyone on the dance floor was chanting "one more song, one more song". They really are so much fun and sounded amazing. What I loved most was how versatile their range was, they sang everything from Beyonce to John Legend to the Isley Brothers (shout) to the Horah. Literally everyone from our friends to our parents friends were on the dance floor the entire night.

Leading up to the wedding they were extremely professional and easy to get a hold of. Paul, the main contact for Grove authority was so helpful. He always made himself available to chat and was willing to work with me on special song requests to make sure my wedding was fun and memorable.

Groove Authority honestly made the entire night so much fun!

The highlight of the whole night!

My guests raved about the music and I couldn't agree more. Groove Authority was a blast. They new how to mix the music up to appeal to our friends as well as some of the older folks in the crowd without ever losing the crowd. I've never seen a more packed dance floor at a wedding--we danced almost the entire time.

I would recommend Groove Authority in a heartbeat to anyone who's looking for a live band.

Hiring The Groove Authority was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. All of our wedding guests from our friends to grandparents keep commenting even 6 weeks after our wedding about how incredible they were. Some of my friends who never dance, were out on the dance floor all night. The dance floor was packed all night. They were also incredibly responsive to every question - just a pleasure to work with. Hire them - you won't regret it!

My husband and I used Groove Authority for our wedding reception. They were phenomenal! In the lead-up to the event, the band director was so easy to work with and was so willing to customize the event to make it exactly what we wanted (even allowing my mother to rewrite the lyrics to the song for my first dance with my father). They played an awesome variety of songs and the dance floor was packed all night long - they made everyone want to get up and dance. SO many of our guests came up to us that night to rave about the band, and since then when people tell us what they remember most about our wedding it is Groove Authority! We could not have asked for a better experience and they made our reception so much fun for everyone. I could not recommend them more highly.

Groove Authority provided the music for our daughter's April 25th, 2014 Wedding, both during the Cocktail Hour and at the Reception. They were fantastic! We are still getting feedback telling us what a wonderful time was had at the Wedding, and that the music was terrific. Everyone was on the dance floor all night ~ which was our goal! Paul Rudin was exceptionally responsive and accomodating, both to our daughter and son-in-law, and also to my husband and me. We were giving the Blessing and Grace at the Wedding and had some specific requests. Paul and the Band were most gracious in working with us, and we were delighted with the result! It was a beautiful Blessing, a Beautiful Wedding, and most of all, so much fun! I would highly recommend Groove Authority for anybody's Wedding or social event!

Groove Authority was absolutely the best investment that we made in our wedding reception. All of our guests are still raving about what an amazing time they had on the dance floor. Groove Authority clearly has a great ability to read the room and be flexible in playing to the crowd. They appealed to the full range of guests at our wedding- even our toughest family members to please, were up dancing and commented the next say that they were just "outstanding." Paul was so organized and attentive to our every request. Groove Authority would be a wonderful addition to any wedding and owe the success of reception entirely to them.

Truly the leading authority on groove!

Paul and his bandmates were excellent! The planning process was super easy and accommodating. The band was able to learn a new song for our cake cutting ceremony and introduction music (we introduced our wedding party to AC/DC's thunderstruck). Terrific variety of music made for a great setlist and several compliments from our guests. If you are on the fence about entertainment for your wedding, splurge for the band. Truly one of the highlights of our night.

Groove Authority is by far the best wedding band around! We had guests from all over (Chicago, LA, Denver, NYC, Minneapolis, DC, and the list goes on...) come to Boston for our wedding...and hands down EVERYONE said that Groove Authority was the BEST wedding band they had ever heard! They had ALL of our guests dancing from before dinner until the very last song of the night! Besides that, they were very professional and beyond easy to work with! I know choosing a band is a tough decision for anyone planning a wedding - but the choice is easy with Groove Authority! They literally will make your wedding and your guests will talk about how great they were for months (maybe even years!) after the event! Groove Authority receives my most sincere and highest recommendation possible! If you have not booked them yet, do so now!

I had to give Paul and his band 5 stars across the board. Groove Authority played our wedding at the Omni Parker on Fab 22 and they ROCKED THE HOUSE!

Leading up to the wedding, Paul was extremely organized and responsive. He took all of the stress out of planning the entertainment and music. We were lucky enough that they were free the night of our wedding and once we booked Groove Authority, Paul took care of everything. A true professional.

On the night of the wedding, the band had actually learned our first dance song, and also played the father/bride, mother/groom songs perfectly. They also played the piano and sax during our cocktail hour perfectly. We gave Paul and the band a bit of an idea of the type of music we like and what we thought the crowd would like but more so left it up to the pros and didn't pick a specific play list. Paul mentioned that the band was great at reading a crowd and they certainly didn't disappoint. The entire wedding was on the dance floor then entire and LOVING the band. They were definitely a hot topic amongst the guest.

We honestly couldn't be any happier with both how the band performed, and Paul's professionalism and attentiveness while going through the process of booking the band, and planning the event.

I would HIGHLY recommend Groove Authority to any body planning a wedding, or any other event for that matter that needs a top notch band.

Thanks again to Paul and Groove Authority.

Paul was so easy to work with throughout the entire planning process - he was responsive, flexible and professional. When we needed someone last minute to coordinate our ceremony music, Paul immediately offered his services. He was constantly checking in to ensure that we were comfortable with all of the details and really put me at ease as our wedding date approached. In terms of the band's actual performance, you will not find better than Groove Authority! They played a great mix of music and kept our dance floor packed for the entire night. I can't tell you the number of people who told me it was the best wedding band they'd ever heard, and I'd have to agree! Thank you so much for making our wedding day such a memorable experience.

The Groove Authority was exactly what I wanted for a band. They were extremely responsive and so easy to work with. They played so many great songs to keep everyone up dancing and even took requests. Not to mention, we had a change in the bridal party introductions last minute and they were so accommodative and did not mess anything up. I would recommend them to anyone!!!! All night people kept commenting on how great the band was and when they get married they were going to hire them. They truly made our reception.

Groove Authority played at our December wedding on 12/28 and I could not be happier with their performance! This band is amazing! They had everyone dancing the entire night, and our guests kept pulling me aside to ask who the band was and how they could book them. They are super energetic and fun, and some of the band members even ventured out to the dance floor to show off their moves while performing :) Paul, the band leader, was a pleasure to work with and he accommodated all of our requests. He also offered great suggestions to help the night run more smoothly. I definitely recommend checking out Groove Authority for your wedding.

Groove Authority was hands down a 5. We literally did not have enough room on the dance floor. Everyone danced all night long and at the end the group started "one more song! one more song!" I've NEVER been at a wedding when that happened and it was amazing. The band was BEYOND accommodating and SUPER flexible. I would recommend them to anyone in a heart beat. People are still talking about the wedding, and more specifically, the band.

There are not words to explain how good this band is!! They are very energetic, they have a huge song list, and they sound incredible. The variety of instruments they play make the songs sound awesome and the band members are very talented. They play a lot of recent songs and are very accommodating in playing music you want to hear at your wedding. They were very informative and helpful during the planning process. All of my inquiries were answered promptly and they were thorough in preparing for my wedding. They were definitely the icing on the cake for my wedding. Well worth the money! I received so many compliments from my guests.

Had a really good time. I don't really dance much but the music was great and I was on the dance floor a lot. Everyone was dancing all night, and guests kept complimenting the band. Overall, a great job. Paul was easy to work with. The band even provided the wireless microphone (on me) for the ceremony, and also a stand microphone for our readings. Really happy with how the day turned out. I would recommend you check them out, but do it early. We heard them at a showcase about a year prior to the ceremony, and booked soon after.

We recently had Groove Authority perform at our wedding and it was just perfect. From the very beginning, Paul and his team were professional and diligent about understanding what we wanted and figuring out how best to achieve it. On more then a few occasions our guests would walk up to us throughout the night and say things like: "at first we didn't actually know it was them singing the song" or "where did you find these guys, they're absolutely incredible" or my personal favorite "they sing it better then the actual artist". When it finally comes time for your wedding day, it's so important that you as a couple are satisfied and find time to enjoy the evening. For us however, it was equally as important, if not more so that our guests have the best time. Groove Authority made achieving that very easy.

Groove Authority made our wedding FABULOUS. They were totally incredible from the beginning! We first went to see GA while they were playing for an event at MIT that they allowed us to sit in on. We were immediately impressed by their incredible voices and amazing range in types of music they play. We booked them for our wedding that night. After that, we went to about 8 weddings between that point and our own wedding, 3 of which had bands. None of the weddings with bands had a packed dance floor and the energy wasn't there- if only they had hired Groove Authority! Our dance floor at the wedding was packed FROM COCKTAIL HOUR ON!! There was jazz during cocktail hour which was highly successful according to our guests. Then the band started playing their dinner set, while people were receiving bread, salads, etc. But alas- no one was eating- EVERYONE was on the dancefloor...during salad course! It was amazing. They played such an incredible set- mixing in Beatles with Lady Gaga and Beyonce. As the night got later, they definitely catered more to the younger crowd and pumped up the top hits. Every song they sang sounded like it was the actual artist. They danced on the dance floor, got the crowd pumped up, and were all around just amazing. ABSOLUTELY book Groove Authority for wedding or event- but only if you want to have the best time ever.

If Groove Authority is available for your wedding day then... book them NOW! Groove Authority rocks in every way possible. My wife and I spent a lot of time finding the right music for our wedding. She wanted a DJ and I wanted a band. For us, the choice did not come down to money (Groove Authority's pricing was very reasonable). Instead it rested on the idea that a DJ can play any music and the original recordings. I like a band at a wedding because I have seen first-hand how a band can really liven up a party. However, at the same time, I was very particular about the band I wanted at my wedding. In the end, we choose Groove Authority to play our wedding. Paul, the band leader, was so easy to work with and always responded to our pre-wedding emails within a very reasonable time. We also went to check out the band at one of their studio jams - some other couples showed up as well and started dancing in the sound studio because Groove Authority rocked it. If you're concerned about the amount of music that Groove Authority knows how to play, don't worry. They got all genres covered and even learned new songs that were popular at the time of our wedding.
On our wedding day, Groove Authority arrived on time and were set up for all parts of our wedding (ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner/dancing). When it came to the dancing, the band nailed it (again)! We worked on identifying the songs and types of music we wanted played at our wedding. Groove Authority used that to create a great set of songs. The dancing lasted all night long and probably would have kept going, but our venue had to shut down at a specific hour. We all have friends that "don't" dance at weddings. Groove Authority was so good that even those people danced at our wedding. We had one guest that has had 2 knee replacement surgeries in the last year. He was dancing because Groove Authority was so good.
My recommendation is to book now if you want to have a great time at your wedding!

Our wedding was June 29, 2013.
Groove Authority did a great job and had our guests on the dance floor the entire night. My husband really wanted a DJ since he prefers to hear "the real song" by the artist/singer. I really wanted a band. We went with Groove Authority and my husband told me how great the band was about 5 times during our wedding night. Our guests LOVED the band. Since the wedding, many of my friends have asked the name of the band and have told me how great they were. It was so much fun to have the live band toward the front of the dance floor while all our guests danced.
Paul was great to work with during the planning of our wedding. We had a couple of phone calls to discuss details prior to the date. He was very responsive via email as well which was great since it was an easy way to communicate with any questions I had.
My husband (Eric) is a Phish fan so I'd asked the band to learn a Phish song to play during the wedding. Eric loved it!
During the rehearsal we realized we needed a microphone and speakers for the ceremony. I text Paul last minute and he replied that night around 11 (when he finished playing at another wedding reception) letting me know we can borrow speakers and microphone for the ceremony. His responsiveness was appreciated and made for a stress free wedding morning knowing I didn't have to worry about finding a mic and speakers! Thanks again!
Our guests had a great time and I owe it to the band for being so fantastic!
I hope to see you at another wedding I attend!

Josh and I were blown away by Groove Authority!!!!! Paul was very responsive leading up to the wedding and extremely nice during the whole process. The only thing better than Groove Authority would be having every single artist they cover at your reception, and Groove Authority would still put up some heavy competition. These professionals are the best of the best. Everyone at the reception (even the non-dancers and too-cool-to-dance guests) was on their feet the whole night. Afterwards, we only heard rave reviews about the band. Everything else was an afterthought! They are phenomenal!!!

Groove Authority made our wedding a huge success by keeping people entertained as well as up and dancing all night! Coming from a family of musicians, our expectations were high - Groove Authority so far exceeded our expectations, we're all still talking about how great they were and are already passing their name around! Family and friends began commenting on how great the band was during their dinner set and by the end of the night, people were saying it was the best wedding they've ever been to - in large part because of Groove Authority. Paul was an absolute pleasure to work with and was on top of every detail.

In searching for a band, my main concerns were having a reliable group that played a variety of music and could adapt to different moods throughout the event. I wanted a band that could keep people's interest and create a great party atmosphere. Groove Authority did all this and more - they are the best wedding band you'll find and will be sure to make any event a huge success.

Wow...where do we even begin?! Perhaps by asking if we can be Groove Authority Groupies??

GA did such an AMAZING job over the course of our wedding, we can truly say we had the PERFECT day. The ceremony music was spot on, the introductions were lovely -- and they rocked the house all night. We received SO many compliments about the band that I couldn't even begin to list them all. They are an amazing group of performers and Paul is an incredibly helpful person to work with.

We're not even sure we have the words to fully express our gratitude. Thank you for making our wedding the best day of our lives.

If you are considering this band, look no further! Book it now before it is too late, they book up fast. They did an AMAZING show our wedding. Everyone keeps telling us how much they loved Groove Authority. The dance floor was packed the whole time. Even the guys who never dance were up there dancing. They played every kind of music, everything we requested. The singers were all so personable and the sound was incredible. The sound quality was perfect. We could enjoy the music and still converse at dinner and after the meal they really rocked. My guests were asking where else they played so they could go to see this band again.
Really professional and worth every penny, if you book this band you will be glad you did!

Everyone keeps telling us how much they loved Groove Authority. The dance floor was packed the whole time. Even the guys who never dance were up there dancing. They played every kind of music, everything we requested. The singers were all so personable and the sound was incredible. The sound quality was perfect. We could enjoy the music and still converse at dinner and after the meal they really rocked. My guests were asking where else they played so they could go to see this band again.
Really professional and worth every penny, if you book this band you will be glad you did! Read less

We hired Groove Authority for our son's Bar Mitzvah celebration in March. Our guests ranged in age from 2 to 81. The band literally did the impossible and bridged multiple generations with their sound. Everyone was on the dance floor, including teenagers who particularly liked the covers of songs currently on the radio. Paul's advice in how to time the event was flawless, as was the quality, diversity, and selection of music. Groove Authority created a special feeling that evening that will never be forgotten; our guests are still raving about the band. And, as if talent weren't enough, the band is professional, gracious, friendly, and easy to work with. We can never thank them enough or recommend them highly enough.

PHENOMENAL Wedding Band!! The first time we went to view Groove Authority, Paul (the band leader), came right over to introduce himself and asked for any special requests. This was only the first of many gestures that showed how easy he was to work with. He is extremely responsive, which is important especially as your wedding date nears! As for the wedding itself, the dance floor was packed from 8PM to 1AM! Paul explained they would play dinner music and they did; however they were so great, the guests just wanted to dance!!! We had several guests tell us they didn't think the band took any breaks! They were very discrete and put on music that kept the party going! We can't say enough positive things! They also let us play the tamborine and join in and sing with them! Definitely the best I have seen!

To start - I received 3 recommendations to use Groove Authority from 3 separate people who saw them play at different venues. Paul, the manager, is extremely enjoyable to work with. He is quick to respond to any questions and shows a genuine interest in making your special day perfect. The band had our guests on the dance floor the ENTIRE night!! They played music for all ages to enjoy. We had such a blast and keep receiving compliments from our friends on what a fantastic band they are! I would recommend Groove Authority to any bride that wants their guests to have a wonderful night to remember. Even guests that didn't partake in dancing loved having the live performance to enjoy. Can't say enough about Groove Authority!

Great variety of music, incredibly talented musicians and very professional. Paul walked us through the whole process from picking songs to how things would run. I cannot recommend this band enough. I wish I had another event to use them for. . .anniversary perhaps? I love them!

We recently had Groove Authority play at our wedding and we could not have been happier with them. Our quests could not stop talking about their amazing performance, even several weeks after the wedding people were still bringing them up! They played the perfect blend of music and were able to keep the dance floor completely full all night. (Something that is not easily done with our families!) Paul and the band went above and beyond to accommodate anything we needed. He made the entire process easy and enjoyable by walking through the whole evening with us step by step. Paul used his expertise to help guide us with decisions that we were unsure about and he was spot on with everything. I would highly recommend anyone looking into a band to seriously consider Groove Authority! They are amazing!

Groove Authority played at my wedding 2 weeks ago, and they were fabulous! Everything I had asked for, they played. I wanted them to learn our first dance song and play it a specific way, and they took all of my requests and made it happen. All of our guests, even the older folks, were up and dancing the whole night. I got rave reviews from friends and family who loved the music, the vibe, and the big band feel. Planning with the band was super easy, and they made sure to contact me and go over every last detail down to the songs they would play during set breaks. I'm a crazy planner, and they really made me feel at ease. They play all genres of music, so everyone is bound to hear something they like that will get them up dancing. They even played jazz at my cocktail hour, a three piece set-up...it was excellent. Highly recommend using Groove Authority as your wedding band...

I highly recommend Groove Authority for so many reasons. The first and foremost is that they rocked it!! The dance floor was packed all night long. Some guests even started dancing before dinner was served. We had guests of all ages and their song choices got EVERYONE on the dance floor. Also, Paul couldn't have been easier to work with. He was so responsive and also gave me good advice when I asked for it. In addition, my dad wrote the song that we wanted to dance to. When I mentioned it to Paul, his response was "We would be honored to perform it." They learned the song and did an incredible job of performing it! We also requested that the keyboardist perform at our ceremony and at our cocktail hour (in addition to the saxophone). We are still getting rave reviews Groove Authority!! I wouldn’t change our band selection for the world!

Groove Authority was one of the best parts of our wedding. I found the band online and really liked the way they sounded. Paul who is their main contact was easy to talk to from the start. He answered all of my millions of questions promptly. The band has an extensive song list and learned numerous songs special for our wedding. We had a Groove Authority keyboardist play us up the aisle and their trio play at our cocktail hour. Both were excellent. Then the party started. Paul and the band knew just what to play and kept everyone dancing all night. The musicians and singers were great... even better than what I had heard online. I was super impressed with Groove Authority and would recommend them to anyone getting married in the New England Area. You will not be disappointed.

Recommendation for Groove Authority 10/31/12

The “bride-to-be” originally picked out a few bands to consider playing at the wedding reception. The reception was scheduled for the Rotunda at Easton’s Beach in Newport—a beautiful, large room with a panoramic view of the ocean to the south and Cliff Walk on the west. Even though the guest list was not “super large” (less than 100) we knew that our family and friends (of all ages) liked to dance and have a good time; so we would need a band that could keep everything going and give everyone a chance to do their own thing—dance-wise.
Our daughter asked us to check out some of the band choices—including Groove Authority which was playing at a wedding in Warwick. We eased in and hung-out in a corner until the band started. We knew right away, because of the obvious talent and professionalism of the musicians and the diversity of the music from many styles, that this was the band we wanted.
So that’s what we did and it was definitely the right choice. The reception was scheduled for 5:30-10:30pm and the band played nearly the entire time—only a couple of short breaks. The music varies among several styles, tempos and volumes—keeping everyone comfortable and giving every many chances to dance to music that they especially like. In a word…it was awesome! The band kept everything moving and people came up again and again to enjoy the music and the opportunity to dance. Even the band seemed to enjoy and respond to the crowd and atmosphere in the room.
We were so pleased with the service from Groove Authority that it is a pleasure to recommend it. We enjoyed working with Paul Fudin and the other band members. They even agreed to provide music for a surprise “Father-of-the-Bride” song that went over wonderfully.
Thank you, Groove Authority, for helping to make the wedding reception so enjoyable and wonderful for everyone.

We had such a fantastic night and it would definitely not have been the same without them! People continue to ask who they were, where we found them etc. Rave reviews all around.

Groove Authority played our wedding just last weekend...and the amazing, positive reviews....were all 100% accurate.

They absolutely killed it! Guest after guest, both during and after the wedding, raved about GA - and for good reason. They were high energy, fun, and sounded just great. We pared down their expansive setlist to what we were hoping for...and they stuck with it perfectly.

Paul was the emcee for our wedding and outstanding - the flow was natural and perfect...just what we were hoping for.

From the time we started emailing with Paul, to seeing them at a showcase, to the months and weeks leading up to our wedding...the communication was quick, effective, and efficient.

As for price? For a 7 piece band, it was MORE than reasonable.

I just can't say enough positive things about Groove Authority (and Paul....and their pianist who did jazz piano during our cocktail hour...). I would go with them 100% again for my own wedding (hopefully, I just had my first and only!) - and would wholeheartedly reccommend them to anyone, any day.

Thanks for making our wedding even more memorable, GA!!!

Groove Authority was fantastic and so professional to work with! Everyone loved them! They traveled up to our wedding in Kennebunkport, ME arrived with plenty of time to set up and even provided the microphone for our ceremony that another vendor forgot! Cocktail music was great with their piano player and very affordable. The band you pick for your wedding is a big choice and investment, but I don't think you can go wrong with them! They were fantastic about keeping to the wedding events schedule and announcements. Paul is an organized band leader, that won't leave any detail out. They play a great mix of current and classic hits, all ages loved their sound!

Groove Authority is the BEST wedding band bar none - a wedding band for the ages! Groove Authority exceeded all expectations. From the planning until the last song we had such a positive experience with this band. They are professional, talented, energetic, and an outsize bang for your buck. The keyboardist accompanied the cocktail hour perfectly. Groove Authority was incredibly perceptive with their song choices throughout the night and as a result the dance floor was never empty. In fact, before dinner was even served all guests were already busy on the dance floor. Dinner music was tasteful and beautifully ambient - the perfect blend of subtlety and accent during the meal. They have such a versatile catalog of songs to please all age groups and all musical tastes. After the last song people were still grooving and they graciously played an encore or two to seal the perfect evening. During the reception, at the after-party, morning after during brunch, and even now months later we're receiving compliments on the band! Our guests were totally blown away by the quality of their sound, their audience engagement, choreography and overall presence. The manager Paul is extremely professional, attentive, and accessible. Collectively we have been to nearly two dozen weddings and never have we seen a wedding band so genuinely interested and concerned with the enjoyment of the guests and not cheesy at all - they are incredible! We give Groove Authority our highest recommendation!!!

Wow, Groove Authority is AMAZING. At first I was skeptical about a band because they can take up a lot of the budget but my husband insisted and he was 100% right not only about having a band but in choosing Groove Authority. First of all, they are so nice and flexible, totally worked with us on what kind of music we wanted and since I am a huge country fan they actually learned some country songs for me- that kind of service and graciousness is hard to find! 2nd- they are sooooo good at what they do, every single member of that band is super talented and you can tell is really passionate about music. 3rd- they were so much fun, everytime I see a wedding guest they tell me how great the band was, "best band they ever heard at a wedding", we live in Atlanta and I have friends who want to fly them down for their weddings in Georgia- they are that good. They will without a doubt get everyone dancing and everyone will have an amazing time! Thank you so much Groove Authority!

Groove Authority played at our first daughter's wedding two years ago, and our guests couldn't stop raving about them! When our youngest daughter got engaged, we made sure GA was available when we planned the wedding date, and again, we were more than happy with their performance. The function manager told us he had never seen so many people dancing! They played every song we requested, from present hit songs to favorite oldies.
Band manager, Paul Fudin was a delight to work with. He was friendly and professional, making sure that everything ran smoothly.Groove Authority is one of the best bands I have ever heard, and our daughters will always have the memories of dancing to their music on their special days!

When our youngest daughter got engaged, we made sure GA was available when we planned the wedding date, and again, we were more than happy with their performance. The function manager told us he had never seen so many people dancing! They played every song we requested, from present hit songs to favorite oldies.
Band manager, Paul Fudin was a delight to work with. He was friendly and professional, making sure that everything ran smoothly.Groove Authority is one of the best bands I have ever heard, and our daughters will always have the memories of dancing to their music on their special days! Read less

What a great wedding band! Their music and vocals are superb, as are their timing, their professionalism and their reliability. They had everybody dancing and every single guest commented on how fantastic they were. They were easy to work with, took all my daughters likes/dislikes into consideration, and made us feel as if our occasion was indeed special. I'd hire them in a minute for any celebration!

Love love loved them! We went for a showcase with groove authority but took too long to book and lost our opportunity. However, we booked their mirror band, Nightlife. They were incredible as well. They played great songs and everyone was on the dance floor all night. Their managers Paul and UV were very quick to respond to each and every request we had. Cannot say enough about how pleased we were with their service.

How do I even begin to review the Groove Authority?! Our wedding day was about 95 degrees, sticky, humid, and everything was outside. I was convinced that the heat was going to deter people from wanting to go out on the dance floor all dressed up and get all sweaty. I could not have been more wrong! Groove Authority got people up out of their seats and dancing ALL NIGHT LONG! People were drenched in sweat and still having dance-offs and forming the occasional conga line… I have never seen so many people just thoroughly enjoying themselves. Parents with teenage kids were all up dancing together and were joined by their grandparents, and at the start of each song the crowd would applaud in excitement over the next up on the set list! At the end of the night they played their final song and our guests began changing “one more song!” and the band obliged with an encore. I have lost track of the hundreds of times during the wedding and after that the guests wanted to know who the band was, how we found them, where they play, and if we knew they were going to be as absolutely amazing as they were. For many people the band is the thing they remember most from our big day!
The planning process was also very smooth. Paul was always available for questions via e-mail and/or the phone. They were flexible with the payment schedule as we had booked almost two years in advance. Their song list is incredible, it would probably be easier if they just listed songs they don’t know b/c that list would be shorter! They know everything and if they don’t they will learn it for you. They also took care of our ceremony music which was Ken on the piano. He played our selections absolutely perfectly and the sound volume was spot on as well. Andrew and Ken did a number of jazz selections for our cocktail hour which also got a number of compliments. Everyone showed up on time and their set-breaks seemed like they were only 30 seconds long and then they were back to singing and playing their hearts out! They also bring their own lighting which was fantastic. Uplighting companies charge and arm and a leg but the band lit up the whole tent with interchanging colors at no added cost and it looked like we had hired professional lighting. Looking back I strongly feel that booking the Groove Authority was one of the best decisions we made in planning for the wedding. I am incredibly grateful to them for all of their talent and giving us and our guests an incredible party! They play locally at different restaurants and bars so if you are still contemplating bands for an event contact them so you can go see them… you will not be disappointed!!!

Groove Authority was a hit at our wedding. They are talented musicians playing everything from Sinatra-like standards to classic 60s R&B to modern pop. In addition, they were into the music and having fun playing the music. The band understood the flow of the reception and coordinating their styles of music with the food service and speeches, etc. They had everybody on the dance floor rocking out when it was time, and played the smooth and easy music when people were eating and socializing. During and after the party, our guests raved about their energy and performance. Paul, the band leader, was both professional and fun to work with. We had great communication by phone and email planning out the reception in the weeks leading up to the wedding, and I felt confident entrusting Paul and the band with running a great reception before the day of the wedding. Their quality is a great value for the money. Also, if you're having a Jewish wedding (as my wife and I did), they do a great Horah!

If you want a band for your wedding that is not your typical, cheesy wedding band, then I was tell you to get Groove Authority. They sound more like a cover band and that was exactly what I was looking for. They played at my wedding and i have to say they rocked it. They are absolutely without a doubt the best. There was not one person at my wedding who came up to me and my husband who didn't have something great to say about the band. Everyone loved them. They kept the party going and there was non-stop dancing and singing from the band member as well. My husband asked me to divorce him just so we can get married again to have the band play at our wedding again. I absolutely loved them and would recommend them for any type of occasion.

Everyone at our wedding could not say enough about how fantastic Groove Authority was! They played a fantastic selection of music and learned our first dance song and parent dance songs and they sounded perfect. They even knew that I love to play tambourine so they gave me my own tambourine and let me get up and rap and dance with them to Bust A Move. It was one of the best memories from my wedding! We really could not have asked for better entertainment for the most important day of our lives.

Groove Authority helped create an unbelievable wedding memory of us all! Their sound was fabulous, song selection was a perfect blend of all styles of music- and our dance floor was packed from the very first song until the end of the extra set! After all the planning that went into my daughter's wedding- the Groove Authority was the perfect choice for everyone to relax and dance the night away!
Nothing beats a live band to read a crowd and keep the party going- and this group did it in style!!!

This band was everything we hoped for, and more. From start to finish, they were professional, responsive, and easy to work with. Most importantly, they were absolutely amazing at our wedding, and are wonderful, wonderful musicians. Our guests were so impressed that multiple members of our family and friends have since approached them about playing at their weddings and events. We cannot speak highly enough of our experience with them.

Paul and Groove Authority were a great addition to our reception. They kept the party going all night long. Paul was very accessible and was clearly interested in helping us have the kind of reception we wanted. They accommodated our wish to incorporate some Arabic music by playing our ipod through their PA for our entrance and during the band's breaks. Also, they are really professionals in every sense of the word. They were there on time and were on top of the requests we had made ahead of time. They were on top of things musically, too (I'm not a pro, but I've been playing drums and bass for more than 20 years). Paul also served as the emcee and did a great job of keeping things moving. At first we were unsure about spending the extra money for a live band, but after the party there was no doubt it was worth it. Our guests had nothing about raves about the band. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat.

For my husband and I, the band was one of our highest priorities. We had another band cancel on us only 2 months before our wedding, so we were nervous because we didn't get to see Groove Authority live beforehand. Paul was incredibly reliable and answered the phone whenever we needed him. They worked with our price range and specific requests, like a saxophonist at cocktail hour.

Our wedding was in Newport and my theme was Classy Sophistication, so having a cheesy cover band was not an option! These guys were anything but! They're range is amazing, covering contemporary songs like Black Eyed Peas, and perfected our father-daughter ballad by Paul Simon. The front girl is outstanding, and the group adds an inviting energy and presence to the wedding. My girlfriends will dance to anything, but the fact that the whole party was out there really says something about the band's diversity and appeal.

It's so hard to choose the "right" vendors in all this. Especially with bands I felt there were so many options and hard to distinguish which is better than the other. But I'll leave you with this: We had our ceremony on the beach in Newport on a September afternoon. After our first kiss, we walked back down the aisle as the keyboardist played "here comes the sun" (Paul's recommendation). Seeing all of our guests swaying to the music and absorbing this moment is one of my best memories from our wedding day, thanks to Groove Authority. They are true musicians and a class act.

They are so energetic, the quality of the music is so good, and their repertoire is so varied-- they really appealed to both our younger and older guests. The dance floor was packed all night- people were having a blast. Paul and the rest of the group were so easy and nice to work with. We really couldn't have asked for better. We recommend Groove Authority 100%!

They are the best band in all of New England! My husband is a musician and a music teacher so our band selection was of upmost importance to him. We couldn't have been happier with Groove Authority. They were awesome! They kept our guests on the dance floor until midnight! They have a charisma and insanely electrifying energy that keeps people on the floor. Plus, they are just brilliant musicians. It was so nice to have both male and female singers so we could hear all our favorite tunes sung by the correct vocal part. Plus, we met with quite a few bands and Groove Authority's bandleader seemed the most professional and helpful. He was great to work with prior to the wedding. We exchanged emails and had a phone meeting to discuss how we wanted our night to progress. He was completely attentive to our requests in terms of the order of the formal moments (e.g. first dance, mother/son, father/daughter dances, etc). They gave us a wedding night that was unforgettable and all our guests are still talking about this wonderful band! I would hire them again in a second!

Groove Authority played our wedding in Boston in July of 2011. They occasionally play as a 4 person group at Tommy Doyles in Cambridge, and I happened to catch them one night and get a business card. The four-person group was playing mostly rock music (which was appropriate for the crowd/setting), but everyone in the bar was on the dance floor! I had so much fun that night I was inspired to ask for their business card. Paul told me that when they play weddings they use a 7-person setup with saxophone, two singers, etc., which sounded good to me. GA's website was great, and had an extensive list of songs they play.  The female singer has an amazing voice, and it looked they had a good energy.  We booked them right away, and it was probably the best vendor decision we made for the whole wedding! They were reasonably flexible on price and totally worth what we paid. Their MC-ing was excellent and they were accommodating to us in letting my sister sing a song (with mp3 accompaniment) between the first dance and the first course. GA had the crowd CONSTANTLY on the dance floor. The pacing of the songs was great, slowing it down when they needed to (during the meal) and picking it up again at the moment people started finishing each course. By the end of the night the whole place was rocking, and everyone was having an amazing time. Just when you thought things couldn't get higher energy with some crowd favorite like "Livin' on a Prayer" (yes the lead male vocalist has that range), they would immediately follow it up with another huge hit (in this case "Love Shack") that would maintain the intensity. I had at LEAST ten people come up to me to tell me that the band was awesome, and those admissions feel really good on the big day when your decision-making is on trial. Do yourself a favor and book this band. This is one testimonial among many, but since they are all favorable, just know that you'll doubtless be very happy with your decision on the big day. I think the tone of a wedding is set by two things: the food and the band, but you can have middle of the road food and still have a good wedding if people are having a great time dancing. The quality of the wedding band is paramount, and this Groove Authority is the highest quality.

I have to say, I was a little worried when we booked a band. What if no one danced? What if we saw them do everything they could do at the showcase? What if it wasn't perfect? I shouldn't have spent a second worrying because this band KILLED it! They kept my guests dancing and singing all night long. The band gets so into it and really puts on a show but in a tasteful way. I absolutely love them! I really hope I can go to someone else's wedding who uses them so I can hear and watch and enjoy every minute of their performance. I would recommend them to everyone especially those who love old Motown. They really put on quite the show!

Groove Authority is one of the best choices we made, when planning our wedding. They had everyone up and dancing the entire night. Prior to even eating dinner, people were on the dance floor. The music choice, I feel can really make or break your entire night, and they certainly made ours! Their enthusiasm, and amazing talent made for an excellent time. Paul was great to work with, and went out of his way, to make sure that all was exactly how we had planned it to be. They learned all of our songs prior to the wedding, and were exactly what we had hoped for in a wedding band. I would recommend them to everyone i know, and really hope that some of our friends use them in the future for their weddings!

We were thrilled that Groove Authority was part of our wedding celebration! They were recommended to us from a coworker and couldn't have been happier with our decision! They were amazing and all of our guests raved about how much fun they had and what an awesome band they were! The dance floor was packed the entire night and it was great that they play a large variety of current day songs as well as classic rock and slow songs. They were willing to learn songs that we requested and Paul was very easy to work with. He was able to provide suggestions about the timing of reception and made sure to follow up a few times leading up to the wedding. All the members are talented musicians that seem to really enjoy performing!

From the moment we started planning our wedding, we knew that we wanted to hire a band to entertain our guests. After receiving a rave review on Groove Authority from my sister, I viewed their website and could tell that they would be perfect! Their mix of classics and current pop hits provided the exact tone for our guests who all danced the night away! Paul was fantastic to work with and extremely accommodating! They learned our first dance song for us and truly made our reception the celebration we dreamt it to be. Thank you Groove Authority for making our wedding a party to remember!

Groove Authority is a TERRIFIC band at a very good value. Our reception was at the Four Seasons Boston, and my wedding planner was trying to push 2 other bands that cost way more than Groove. We did a lot of research into cost/quality and were THRILLED with our choice. They are incredibly talented, learn songs for you, respond well to your crowd, and are easy to work with. They also look good on stage. People danced like crazy at our wedding, to the point that they screamed for an encore. How often does a wedding band get asked to do an encore? Bands can make or break a wedding reception, and I give my highest recommendation to Groove Authority. USE THEM, you'll be really happy!

Groove Authority made my wedding day memorable for my husband and I PLUS our guests. We've been married for 1 year and people STILL talk about how great our band was. Leading up to the wedding, Paul was super-responsive to my emails - he even helped me plan the timing for the night. They were very flexible and sweet when my father-in-law asked them to play an impromptu song with him on his trumpet. Classy and talented musicians with a TON of depth - you're lucky if you can snag them for your special night.

Groove Authority kept every guest at our wedding on the dance floor all night long! Paul was very easy to communicate and responsive to our requests. Having both a male and female vocalist made all the difference and the musicians were so talented and rolled with the punches, even when a wedding guest sort of attacked the keyboardist during a rousing rendition of "Shout!" This band is the best!

We should have gotten a bigger dance floor because almost EVERYONE was up and dancing the ENTIRE night! Thanks, Paul and everyone in Groove Authority!

This band was incredible. I had 175 people at our wedding and almost all of them were dancing all night. Paul did a great job listening to our needs and being adaptive. They absolutely perfected everything from slow dances, to rap to Lady Gaga. Each email I got from friends and family after the event talked about how the band was a 'game changer'. It was, by far, the best money we spent at the wedding. I wish I could get married all over again, just to dance for hours to amazing music with the people I love.

Thanks Groove Authority, just for being awesome.

When people always told me a band makes a wedding I never really believed it - but NOW I KNOW. Groove Authority was nothing short of impressive. My husband and I went to view them at a bar in Boston where we decided that night they would be a great fit for our wedding. Paul was so easy to work with and he accommodated so many of my unique requests that made our wedding that much more memorable (special dances, announcements, dances, etc.)

Lets put it this way, it was hard to get around and see everybody at the tables to say hi because they had people dancing from the minute they started their first set.

Only complain, I needed a bigger dance floor!!!!!!!

Wonderful variety, huge crowd pleaser.

My parents have already booked them for another event and they're a hard duo to please!

We hired Groove Authority after seeing a few different bands play public showcases. We contracted with them directly, and I dealt with Paul, the band leader. Paul takes his job very seriously, and was very conscientious about answering all of our questions, and making sure we had the information we needed to make a decision. He also was flexible in helping us to work within our budget. I was a little nervous due to the somewhat-disorganized planning worksheet I was given to fill out, but this is the only fault I had with them throughout the entire process. In the end, Paul worked tirelessly to make sure that our event was exactly how we wanted it. I made a somewhat long-shot request that the band sing a Hebrew song for our first dance, not really expecting that they'd be able to do it. But Paul was able to call in a friend who fronts another band and speaks Hebrew to do it for a very reasonable price! The band also brought an additional singer and a sound engineer even though we had not asked for (or paid for) one. They sounded AWESOME. I mean, AMAZING. If you were standing outside the room, you would have sworn you were listening to a recording. Not only that, they had amazing energy, with the singers getting into the songs and coming onto the dance floor a few times. We were a little perturbed when the band began with some older songs (You Can Call Me Al, We Are Family, etc.), but as soon as we gave them the signal to switch it up, they moved on to our more modern playlist and never looked back. We had many of our guests tell us that it was the best wedding band they had ever seen, and people stayed dancing until the very end. I would wholeheartedly recommend Groove Authority - they were professional, reasonably priced, and delivered a great performance beyond our expectations.

Our single best splurge when planning our September 2010 wedding was definitely hiring this band. They had EVERYONE dancing all night… kids, grandparents, and everyone in between. We hired their keyboard and sax players for the cocktail hour, and had the full 7 piece band for the reception. They are incredibly talented and play the widest range of music I’ve ever heard from any band. Every song sounded the same or better than the original artist, and without any direction from us they knew exactly what to play at each point in the evening. I can’t even count how many people have told me that our band was by far the best they’ve heard. In fact, we're looking forward to hearing them play at two couple's weddings this year! The couples attended our wedding and were so impressed they had to book them.

Groove Authority was a amazing. They had everyone dancing all night, super energetic, and really made our special day. Beyond the magic they performed, we had some special requests that they helped us fulfill. There were a few talented musician friends and relatives at our wedding, and we coordinated some songs where they could get up and join the band. It was pretty important for us to incorporate these personal performances into our night, and Groove Authority worked with us to do this sharing our excitement. They also helped us pull off a “Jack Rabbit Slim’s” Pulp Fiction introduction before our dance, “You Never Can Tell - Chuck Berry”.

When we first listened to their demo, they went straight to the A list pile. Every time we played their music to others, people said “that band, yes.” We got a group of friends together to see them perform one Saturday night out on Landesdown street in Boston, and we watched them rock the place. Our friends were like “OMG, this band is playing at your wedding?” Well they did, and they were awesome! Everyone kept asking us, where did you find this band? Ha, it was from reading great reviews like this!

Highly recommend Groove Authority, have no second thoughts.

I can't say enough about the manager Paul and this band. He was professional, made every aspect as easy as possible and walked us through every step of this process. My new wife had a binder full of questions since our venue was non-tradional and Paul put us at ease with all his answers. A++ for this manager. As for the band, I can't believe we were considering a DJ. If you want to invest money in a wedding, entertainment is the key and this band was AMAZING. Absolutly spot on with our first dance, father/daughter and mother/son dances, all learned songs. We had a younger crowd but even the older folks were on the floor. I literally can't say enough besides you will not reget it and they will 100% make your event. Really a no brainer.

We were not able to see bands live and had to rely on audio recordings while making our selection. Grove Authority was above and beyond our expectations. I had to make several changes to the song selections and introductions a few weeks before the wedding and they were extremely accommodating. The day of wedding we were running behind schedule and they seamlessly adapted. There wasn't a guest at the wedding who didn't positively comment on the band and our guests had a wide range of musically tastes. Grove Authority managed to get my grandmother "fast dancing" (as she calls it). In a word, they were fantastic!
