Groove Knight was amazing! I dont live in Austin so it was hard for me to pick the right band from a few websites and phone calls, but our venue's coordinator suggested these guys if we wanted a lively and fun band, and she was spot on! They were above and beyond our expectations. We got so many complements on our band! They were so energetic and knew how to read the crowd, they played the perfect dinner set and then kept everyone from the kids, to our college friends, to our grandparents up on the dance floor. The range of songs/music they play is great.
Dave was great at his prompt and professional contact with my Dad and I from our first contact all the way up to the Big Day- he an absolute pleasure to work! Dave thought about things even I hadn't, he helped with the best layout for the room/band positioning, timeline of events and the introduction of the bridal party. He even learned a song for my Dad/I's dance a month before the wedding.
You cannot go wrong with this band. They are an amazing value, great entertainers and will be the part that your guests cant stop talking about. For a good time band, definitely book these guys!

Where to start??? I hired this band to play my daughters wedding. BEST. DECISION. EVER. People danced, people laughed, people were jealous of me because I had them and they didn't, people asked "where did you find these guys?", people continue to rave about how much fun these guys are!!! They sound amazing, the vocal are so stellar it's sickening, the variety of music is fantastic, the value can't be beat, they are overly accommodating, and they're just super nice guys...and one gorgeous gal. I would definitely recommend them if you want to win the "Best Host/ Hostess of the Year" award.

Groove Knight made our wedding reception such a blast!

Groove Knight recently played at our wedding reception and they were wonderful! They made our reception such a fun time and our guests raved about how great they were. We heard so many compliments! Groove Knight did a great job of getting our guests out on the dance floor and gradually building up the energy over the course of the night, leading up to our big exit. They traveled all the way to Fort Worth for us and we are so grateful! Dave checked in with us throughout the night to make sure everything was on time, as planned, but was also flexible when we needed to push things back a few minutes here and there. He was very easygoing and didn't rush us at all throughout the night.

From their stage presence to their musical ability, Groove Knight did not disappoint - I would highly recommend them to anyone!

We contracted Groove Knights for my daughter's wedding. I was a little concerned at the beginning because I had not ever heard them in person, and we were hiring them solely on the online reviews and their short snippets of music on their website. From the beginning, Dave was professional with every way he handled the contract. We made changes throughout the next few months up to the wedding for added things that we wanted, and each time, Dave handled everything perfectly. We were impressed by the fact that he had a "checklist" of items for us to answer such as what we preferred for them to wear, what songs we did/did not want, and we knew at that point we were in very capable hands. The keyboardist also played the music for the processional and recessional and handled all of the PA system for the actual wedding part. it was all perfect, and I was so relieved that this part was handled.

The night of our daughter's wedding, everything went perfectly! We could not have asked for a better band. They involved the crowd, they sounded wonderful, and they absolutely set the tone for our fun wedding. We received many compliments from our wedding guests.

If you have any doubts, be assured that Dave and Groove Knights will fit your needs. Several weeks post wedding, and we are all still talking about how fun they made our daughter and son-in-law's special night. Dave and Groove Knights--thank you, thank you! If we were to do it all over again, you would be in the center of it again and again!

Hiring a band is one of THE most important pieces to the puzzle of a successful reception. WE were so so fortunate to have Groove Knight as our selection!! They were absolutely perfect from beginning to end. Perfect for dinner music and incredible for what came later, getting the crowd on the dance floor and keeping them there! The night was perfect and they were instrumental in making it that way for the bride and groom.

They met our every request which was planned out in advance and executed it perfectly. I would and will hire them again for any event! They are the best and definitely play to their audience! You will not regret hiring them!!!

Groove Knight was fabulous at our wedding. Our guests had a blast and were on the dance floor all night. The band did a great job of reading the crowd and continuing their sets based on the crowd's reactions. Countless guests also expressed to me how much they enjoyed the band. In addition to their great performance, the band was really flexible with some last minute changes and had the experience to help me with some aspects of preparation that I would never have thought about or known. I can't recommend Groove Knight enough!

We are so glad that Groove Knight was part of our wedding team. We will definitely recommend the band to anyone who wants to have a fun party.
We cannot tell you how much Groove Knight contributed to the success of Ruth and Carson’s wedding. Everything was perfect from the initial contact through the event. Groove Knight was so easy to work with adding songs for the “special” dances. Plus you had a fantastic song list.
During the event the band really knew how to keep the party going. Groove Knight has awesome timing taking breaks around other reception festivities and playing the right music at just the right time. Groove Knight kept the reception moving, queuing up requested songs on time, letting us use your microphone for speeches, making announcements and introductions right on schedule. The music volume was perfect. Guests enjoyed the band and could still have conversations. The lighting was a nice complement to the overall reception. We were amazed that the dance floor was full the entire night with guests from 5 to 90!!

We hired Groove Knight's 7 piece band for my daughter's wedding 10/25/2014. They were worth every penny. The dance floor was never empty, and all we heard was "awesome" used to describe them. They learned 2 new songs for us for the father/daughter dance and the bride and groom's dance and did a beautiful job of both. They just simply helped to make the event very memorable.
