Groove Knight is so awesome that we, not only used them for one daughter's wedding 2 years ago but again for our 2nd daughter's wedding this year. And both times, our guests raved about them. So easy to work with, so accommodating, so professional, so talented and most of all so much fun. The dance floor stays crowded. Can't say enough about their awesomeness!

This band was amazing!! My husband and I had the best night of our lives dancing the night away at our wedding. The band did a really great job at reading the crowd and figuring out what kinds of songs our guests loved. We received so many compliments on the band all night long and even days after the wedding. Dave is great to work with. Immediate responses to every single email correspondance and he is so friendly. We would recommend this band to everyone we know. hire them! you wont regret it!

Groove Knight played for my daughter's wedding in College Station and we had a blast! They sound even better in person than they do on their website sample songs. Having never planned a wedding before, Dave was instrumental in helping me with a time line and suggestions for the night. And the band was great about all our special requests--birthdays, special songs, Father's Day, etc. Our guests were totally impressed and had a great time. It was tough to have the night to end. Thank you so much, Groove Knight! Mellisa L.

Groove Knight was awesome! They rocked all night long and totally made our day as special as it could be. The singers had great voices & the band was jammin'! We had so many compliments on how fun the band was both at the wedding and in the day's after. They had our flower girls all bustin' a move on the dance floor! Dave was really professional in every correspondence and very easy to work with. We highly recommend them!

Groove Knight made our son's rehearsal dinner an outstanding event last night despite the pouring rain! The dinner was held on a dinner cruise and we were so concerned about the rain ruining the evening. Groove Knight was the perfect band for the evening! They were very flexible with their setup and kept the crowd (young, and not so young) on their feet all night! We could not have chosen a better band!

Groove Knight is incredible!! I live in Washington, but my wedding was going to be in Texas. I had to use the internet to help me find the right band to play at our reception. I was a little nervous about hiring a band I had never seen perform live, but Groove Knight had stellar reviews and tons of video clips to help make the right choice. I was blown away by their awesome performance. My guests have been raving about Groove Knight. The band did a fantastic job of reading the crowd, and playing songs for different generations. Everyone was dancing, having a fantastic time. Groove Knight is easy to work with, quick to respond, flexible, and willing to do anything they can to make your night special. I highly recommend them!

I went to a party at the House of Blues in Houston and saw how great they were because their songs kept everyone in the dance floor, so I immediately thought of my daughter's wedding and contracted with them. The wedding was in a ranch where the electrical power was in this particular spot that was not conducive to being in front of the dance floor where you normally would expect the band to be. So we were kind of resigned to live with that - but after the ceremony when we arrived at the reception site the band was in a different place, a perfect location that we hadn't thought of, so I asked Dave how he did that, and he said that when he saw what was happening he went to the town and got an extension cord and solved it. Everyone danced all night long and even the wedding planner of the ranch was so impressed she got their card. The band was fantastic and we were all very happy with them.

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!

Even before we got engaged, my now husband and I would discuss the fact that we definitely wanted a band at our wedding. However, I had always heard that they could be extremely expensive. Once we got engaged, my mom recommended looking on GigMasters for an affordable band and I was immediately struck by the quantity of positive reviews Groove Knight received. I reached out to Dave and then was again struck by his responsiveness and professionalism. We did a lot of back and forth before finally signing a contract and Dave was consistently helpful and encouraging.

That being said, I was still a little nervous leading up to the wedding since we had never actually heard the band play, but they blew us away! We had a cocktail style wedding, so the dance floor was open for a full four hours, and it was packed the entire time.

Also, we had a rather untraditional first dance song ("Dela" by Johnny Clegg, look it up and you'll understand why it was a bit of a challenge). Not only did they learn it, but they knocked it out of the park!

Just an awesome band. Flat out. People were saying that our wedding was one of the, if not the, most fun weddings they've ever been to, and I think that Groove Knight, aided, perhaps, only by the open bar, was responsible for how much fun everyone had that night.

One kabillion thumbs up!
