Let Groove Collection make your event sizzle with an energy that pounds your heart, drives your feet, and dissolves your inhibitions. Entertaining the southeast region, Groove Collection is a fully suited band (Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Drums/percussion, Keyboards, and Saxaphone) whose sound is rooted in the Funk/Soul/Beach music of the past 30 years- splashed with several modern tunes carefully selected to awaken emotions and revive memories.
Groove Collection is meticulous in their arrangements (please listen and compare their sound to the competition-you'll hear the difference). They are equipped with professional sound and lighting gear to meet the highest standard. Specializing in weddings and corporate events, they will enhance your theme and create a mood that will make the night unforgettable. Most of all, Groove Collection knows how to get people dancing- and keep them dancing. Carefully crafted medleys keep the music going, leaving no dead time in between songs where most bands lose the crowd. Their energy on stage is contagious, continuous, and captivating. You will not be disappointed. Groove Collection will learn a song request not on our list (as long as it is within the singer's range/style and is submitted one month prior to event). Groove Collection can also accomodate their music to create the precise mood you are seeking. If you would like a more mellow feel during dinner, and then more upbeat, dance music during the remainder of the evening, we will work closely with you to create exactly what you want. Groove Collection also provides DJing during all breaks (and will tailor the set list to provide only the music you prefer). Also, feel free to use Groove Collection to emcee your event. They are fully suited with lights and equipment to set the perfect mood for your party. Groove Collection is professional and family friendly.

I cannot say enough good things about Groove Collection!

Before our wedding, they were quick to respond to e-mails and very flexible with special requests.

The day of the wedding, Groove Collection was prompt, professional, and sounded great. They did a wonderful job of getting people onto the dance floor and playing what the crowd wanted to hear. Everyone, from my college friends, to my 91-year old grandmother enjoyed their performance.

As one of my bridesmaids told me after the wedding, "the band was awesomeness." I couldn't agree more!

Groove Collection did an outstanding job at our wedding reception, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a fun party! I had many guests ask me about the band, and I know everyone had a blast. Leslie and Matt were very helpful and easy to reach leading up to the event, and answered any questions that I had.

What a great band! Groove Collection is amazing. They are so much fun and kept everyone up and dancing the entire wedding, which was exactly what we asked for. They worked with us on the set list and learned songs just for us. They are even better than any clips you'll see online. We would highly recommend them to anyone that wants a band with great musicians, who knows how to work the crowd and keep everyone dancing. You'll have nothing to worry about choosing Groove Collection! Thanks guys!!

The selection of songs was a perfect compliment to our party guests....loved by all with quests ranging from 4 to 82 yrs old! Everyone danced. The musicians are professional and connected well with the guests. The management respond immediately to any request. They love what they do and it shows! We will definately hire them again and have already recommended them to our friends. Great Job!!

If you are looking for the best wedding band you will ever encounter look no further! I can not get enough of Groove Collection and I know you wont either once you get to experience their sound. They were the true hit of the wedding and my guests are still calling me to tell me about how incredible they thought they were. Their set list featured songs from all era's and something that everyone could relate to. Their energy and passion could be felt by everyone and the dance floor was never empty. Matt, the singer and band leader, was so kind and on top of things, always quick to respond to help me with anything I needed and make sure everything went off without a hitch. He also played at my ceremony and really made such an impact. I truly can't say enough about how amazing this band is and I know you wont be able to either!! THANK YOU GROOVE COLLECTION!!!!

The best decision we made for our wedding was having live music and Groove Collection was the perfect choice! We know that our guests truly enjoyed the band simply by the number of positive comments we received at the wedding and even the day after the event. We planned our wedding from out of state and did not meet the band or hear them play until the day of the wedding. I have to admit that at times I was nervous about how things were going to turn out, but I am so pleased with the band and would hire them all over again! Matt has a great voice and the band really knows how to get people on the dance floor! I would recommend Groove Collection for any event!

Grove Collection absolutely ROCKED our wedding reception! I am so happy that we had them to entertain us for the most important party of our lives! They had awesome, laid-back attitudes and the perfect amount of energy - they had all of our guests on the dance floor despite the rain! My husband is a musician and they were kind enough to let him join them on stage several times throughout the night. In addition, we planned to have a different musician play during cocktail hour who failed to show up and play per their contract so Grove Collection happily filled in and started early - no questions asked!. They were pleasant and fun and honestly, they saved the day! I recommend them wholeheartedly!!

This band was more than incredible. Family and friends are still raving about them! Groove Collection played for my husband and I's wedding in Weaverville, NC on Memorial Day weekend. We knew we wanted a high-caliber band and we were not disappointed. Their energy was amazing and the talent was unparalleled. Every interaction with this band, from their manager Leslie, to the band members themselves was professional and prompt. I would hire them again in a second.

We hired Groove Collection, sight unseen (aside from the images on the website) and went strictly off of the reviews and songs they had posted on their website. The band was absolutely INCREDIBLE. Every band member is a true musician and Matt, the lead singer, has a voice that is perfect with any number of music genres. The band has a way of keeping the party going, without the attendees even knowing that they are doing it. As an example, if a song seems to bring a group onto the dance floor, the band will notice that everyone is dancing and will continue to keep that particular song going. The set list they brought had seamless transitions. I have never seen a crowd actually "boo" when they guys had to go on break (which was only twice during our wedding) and cheer"" when the ipod music stopped and the band re-took the stage. Throughout our reception we had people asking us where iwe found such a diverse, talented, and great sounding band. My wife and I put our faith into these guys and they delivered - hands down. AWESOME JOB. While we were married in Greenville, I wish I could bring these guys back to Texas for a party. They are excellent and you will NOT be disappointed. Job well done!

Groove Collection was the PERFECT band for our wedding! We found Groove Collection online, and we booked them based on the samples we heard. (We live in Dallas, but we got married in SC.) We were nervous since we had never heard them in person, but we went with our gut. The manager, Leslie, was very responsive and answered all of our questions. The band was willing to learn our first dance song, and they sang it beautifully! They also allowed my uncle to sing with them on stage! Our wedding was six months ago, and we still have friends and family talking about how amazing our band was. They read the crowd really well all night long and played the perfect set list for the evening. They were very flexible and even played the chorus of an old hip hop song my friends asked them to play as a surprise to me (the bride). I can't say enough wonderful things about Groove Collection. In fact, some of my friends in Dallas were wondering if the band traveled so they could get Groove Collection to play for their weddings one day. Thank you for making our event a HUGE success!

We saw Groove Collection perform at a friend's wedding in Asheville, and we were blown away. We decided immediately that we needed them for our wedding too. Both times that we've seen them, the dance floor was full from start to finish at the party. They even got cheered out for an encore. They have incredible range, playing everything from classics like Michael Jackson to modern artists like My Morning Jacket. Matt and Leslie are a pleasure to work with, and we couldn't recommend them more highly.

Groove Collection set the mood for the kind of wedding we wanted, a P-A-R-T-Y-Party! Matt is the most versatile singer I've ever come across, the drummer is solid and has great control, and the horns, keys and bass could back a r&b band in Memphis! This band is as tight as they get, without an ounce of cheese! I highly recommend GC if you want people talking about your reception for years to come.

I hired Groove Collection to perform at my daughter’s wedding on July 16, 2011. In one word… Incredible… okay, maybe two words… Incredible and Impressive!

I found them on-line… no prior association… no reference from anyone… just a feeling this was our band! Let me say… I am thrilled that I listened to my instincts! Matt Call was true to his word from beginning to end, and Groove Collection far exceeded our expectations for pre-ceremony, ceremony, and reception music! He met with us months before the wedding at our venue in Knoxville, Tennessee. My first impression was how professional he was… well-dressed, polite, kind and very accommodating! He was eager to work with us on a very untraditional arrangement for the wedding processional, and the band executed the arrangement flawlessly… my daughter and her husband were amazed with their vocals! In fact, everyone was amazed with their vocals… amazed with their talent!

I recommend Groove Collection with enthusiasm! In fact, they were a major hit with our guests and a major influence on the success of the wedding! All night, guests ages 20-70 were saying, “Where did you find this band? They are wonderful! They are great! They are the best we have heard!” My response is Bravo… thank you… job well done!

Again, without reservation, I can confidently recommend Groove Collection as a solid, reliable, high-quality band for any event large or small… They Will Not Disappoint!

Many Regards,

Groove Collection was a great choice for our wedding! We had initially thought of booking a DJ or compiling our own playlist on my ipod, worrying that a band could be kind of "hokey", for lack of a better word. After second thought, I remembered the last few weddings I went to, in which the DJ was hokey and the band was much more fun and interacted well with wedding guest.

Anyway, Groove Collection had a great set list, tons of musical ability, and a lead vocalist that can adapt to many artist, from My Morning Jacket to Johnny Cash. They were willing to use my ipod playlist for cocktail hour and were able to play the first dance song we requested. I was told that there have been only a couple of song request over the years that they could not fulfill. They played one "group participation" song, "Shout", which was perfect for us (not huge fans of line dances, the Macarena, or the like.). They far exceeded our expectations and solidified a great event! We are still getting compliments from our friends and family about Groove Collection.

To quote a wedding guest: "They are the best wedding band I've ever heard!"

This band was awesome, people are still coming up to us telling us, where did you find this band. Their website truly sold their look and their talent.

When I spoke with the band leader we had a few requests and even our first dance to Ray LaMontaigne was a hit. From Michael Jackson to all the hits, they were fantastic.

Our entire wedding was dancing all the way through. To give you an idea, I never met with this band in person - I said this is what we want, this is our goal, and they delivered 110%! You should invest in the Groove Collection.
