More about us...

Groove Place is a ten-piece horn dance band (we also have eight and nine piece configurations) that performs a wide variety of music including Modern, Dance, R&B, Funk, Soul, Motown, Rock, Country, Blues, Big Band, Jazz and Latin. We feature a dedicated front male and female vocalist, a hot four-piece horn section consisting of sax, two trumpets, and trombone; combined with a rocking rhythm section of keyboard, guitar, bass and drums. Having worked throughout the Mid-Atlantic States for the past ten years, Groove Place has developed into a polished, extremely entertaining, high-energy dance party band determined to captivate the crowd at your special event. Our diverse song repertoire and experience make us a leader in the Philadelphia wedding and private party arena. We are proud to have served so many satisfied clients over the years and we hope you become one of the many who rave about us.

As you already probably know, finding an excellent horn band at a reasonable price is like finding a needle in a haystack. It is a jungle out there with so many bands at varying sizes and rates. How do you know what is right for you and what is reasonable or overpriced?

Why us? We are solely owned and operated and are not part of a larger conglomerate. This means you deal directly with the bandleader and save on the overhead cost found within many larger entertainment entities. Our goal is to provide excellent entertainment at a reasonable cost.

One thing that I was certain of while planning my wedding was that I wanted a live band to perform during the reception. One of the first things my husband and I did were scout the options-- we went to various showcases and scoured the internet. We listened to about 10 different groups perform and decided to go with Groove Place. From day one, the band leader Dana was excellent to communicate with, responded promptly to emails, requests, etc. We skyped with Dana about a month prior to the wedding, went through our "gotta have it" list of songs. The band learned our entrance song (Bad Case of Lovin' You) and KILLED IT! The male lead singer did a fabulous job MCing. From the moment the band started the reception was electric! The dance floor was filled with not only the 30 something crowd, but our parents and family friends of all ages were non-stop on the dance floor! (We even had so many people up at one point, people were dancing on the carpeted areas surrounding the dance floor.) From your classic Sinatra standards, to 80s rock, to Top 40 hits they continually nailed every number. We had one couple, who weren't really the dancing type, stay to the end and tell us they were sticking around because they were enjoying the show. A versatile 11-piece horn band with two amazing lead singers and a great vibe-- you will not be disappointed! We had so many people comment on how awesome the band was and how they made this one of the best weddings ever! (To which I agree--I'm not biased at all on that note.) We highly recommend Groove Place!

Groove Place played for my daughter's wedding and they were fabulous. They learned a new song that we requested for our father/daughter dance and played it beautifully; it's a memory that will truly last a lifetime. Everything they played was excellent, and they kept the dance floor full for the entire evening. I would highly recommend them.

Dana (the band leader) and the rest of the Groove Place band are the best decision you will make for your wedding! They were very fun to work with and learned new songs for us, including our first dance. They are extremely talented! They were a great value compared to the other bands out there too.

Every guest at our wedding was raving about Groove Place! Everyone was dancing for the entire wedding- all age groups! We loved how the horn band came out on the dance floor for a rendition of "Love Train." They really made our wedding special!!

Groove Place was such a huge success on our wedding night. I am writing this 3 weeks after our wedding night and we are still receiving so many rave reviews about the band! Dana and the rest of the band were so responsive to our requests and certainly had an incredible feel for the energy of the reception. Groove Place was rocking all night long and had the dance floor packed the entire time.

I am so very happy we chose Groove Place--could not imagine going any other direction! What a value. Thanks Groove Place!!!

We were absolutely blown away by Groove Place. I don't think we could have asked for anyone better to get our family and friends on the dance floor--and keep them there--for our ENTIRE wedding reception. Dana and his crew were simply phenomenal. They learned a song especially for our first dance, took our suggestions for what to play while they were on their break, and even played "Happy Birthday" for my cousin who turned 21 on our wedding day. They are true professionals, and will have your entire party--regardless of age, etc--moving on the dance floor for your whole event.

Groove Place recently played my wedding reception at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia. I would wholeheartedly recommend Groove Place for two reasons (in no particular order): Dana was very helpful and easy to deal with throughout the organizational process and the band rocks!

From the initial introductory call to the finer points of detailing the schedule and playlist, Dana (the bassist and main contact) was the model of professionalism. He was very good at returning calls and emails, pleasant to deal with, and accommodating of all of our special requests. He was very clear in the services that Groove Place would offer, timings, etc. and the band were timely in their set-up on the night.

We had one pianist playing jazz standards during dinner and the full 9-piece band playing for a few hours afterwards. Groove Place were one of the highlights of the day, with a fantastic repertoire of classics, fun, and slow songs. We asked them to incorporate a special version of Auld Lang Syne (a Scottish tradition, which speeds up halfway through) and they performed it brilliantly! They were not afraid to keep on going after the venue turned the lights on, and seemed to be having just as much fun as everyone else. Some of their videos online don’t really do them justice, as they are a very tight group and can really belt out a tune!

Can’t rate them higher, full marks all round.

I can't say enough about how fantastic Groove Place sounded at our wedding. Our friends and family were blown away. From the jazz during cocktail hour, to the upbeat yet appropriate dinner music, into the dancing; our guests of all ages truly enjoyed themselves. The staff at our venue (who have seen hundreds, if not thousands of bands) said they never heard a band as talented as Groove Place. The band leader, Dana, spent almost two hours with us one night planning the timeline of our reception and accommodated every request we threw at him. After our wedding, I'm sure we will see Groove Place play in Scranton again!

Groove Place...THANK YOU SO VERY, VERY MUCH!!! Our wedding reception turned into one heck of a dance party!!!

My family and friends are still RAVING about the band! I remember walking in the room and looking at the tables and a quick thought pasted through my mind…where is everyone?…ON THE DANCE FLOOR!!! The band kept everyone on the dance floor with such a great diversity of songs that all flowed so well. The songs played all sounded the original soundtracks…just amazing!

Dana, we can’t thank you and the band enough for making our special day, extra special! You were such a pleasure to work with from the very beginning! I knew I was in good hands…we didn’t have to worry about a thing! I especially appreciate your willingness and understanding to play my two very special songs…they meant a lot to me, sounded amazing and were done with class!!

Everyone there (even the venue staff!!) will be talking about the very talented and stellar band…”Groove Place”…for some time to come. I am now an official member of the Groove Place fan club along with the other 160 people at our wedding!!!!!

To all Bride & Grooms out there – if you are looking for an amazing, fun, professional, incredible sounding band…look no further! This is the one!

My (now) husband and I got married around Rehoboth Beach, DE on 10/26/13 and selected Groove Place to perform at our wedding. We had driven months before to their showcase while in the process of choosing wedding bands and new instantly they were the ones! All of our pre-wedding interactions with Dana were helpful and very flexible due to our slower decision making process. Their performance at our wedding was beyond what we expected. They were very professional and timely in arriving and setting up for our wedding. While waiting for our parents and bridal party to be announced, we could hear the vocalist singing Alicia Keys and thought it sounded like the actual artist! It is difficult to describe, but Groove Place did more than put on a great performance, they set an energetic, positive mood to the night. The sets were smoothly arranged with no abrupt transitions and the dance floor was always crowded! Most of the weddings we've been to, we forget the band/DJ. It has been several weeks since our wedding and we are still receiving feedback from guests about how great the band was! We will always be grateful to Groove Place for making our day so memorable!

They had every single one of our guests out on the dance floor for the majority of the evening and they kept the energy level high while really working the crowd! For days to follow our families were saying how much fun they had and how amazing the band was. We couldn't have asked for anyone better!

Groove Place was great at our wedding. There were a lot of compliments during the wedding and after. Having a 9 piece horn band is, simply put, awesome. Our first dance was "I can't take my eyes off of you" by Frankie Valentine, and my bride and me had a choreographed dance that needed the song played precisely. Dana and his team did it. Everyone loved our dance, and that relied on the audio queues from the song. They also have a great mix of new songs (2013) and going all the way back to the early 1900s. Dana and his band are very friendly and their prices are reasonable. They will also learn new songs for your event (they did for ours)
If you are looking for a band then definitely give these guys a chance. I did, and if I could go back in time would do so again.

We booked Groove Place for our wedding in September and they were hands down INCREDIBLE!!! I couldn't be more happy with them! The quality of their songs is amazing and they certainly know how to get the crowd going. They had guests of ours who don't normally dance getting down on the dance floor! At one point we literally could not fit any more people out there - it was awesome!

Dana was wonderful to work with and Groove Place was extremely accomodating to any requests and last minute changes we made. My Dad is a musician as well so I had asked Dana if he could play a few songs with the band, and they were extremely welcoming of the idea. My dad fit right in and I know it meant a lot to him to be able to play at his daughter's wedding.

I highly, HIGHLY recommend Groove Place for your next event - you will not be disappointed!!! I can't say enough good things about this band!!!

Thank you Groove Place for the incredible time and the incredible memories!

Groove Place was AMAZING!! The dance floor was packed all night which was exactly what we wanted!!

Everyone raved about the band all night and we keep hearing more praise as we see our friends and family since the wedding. I have and would recommend them to any of my friends getting married because they made our wedding SO fun!!

They are great at playing the party favorites - like Shout and Play That Funky Music - and also rocked the new hits like Blurred Lines and Locked Out of Heaven. You will be so happy if you select Groove Place as your wedding band! Dana was wonderful to work with. He was very flexible and communicative. I really felt like he understood us as a couple and what we were looking for. I didn't stress at all about the music. They came at a very good value considering how talented and professional they are.

I really can't say enough positive things about this band. Groove Place made our wedding so special and such a fun party!! It was one of the best decisions we made about the wedding!!

Working with Dana was a wonderful experience! Our only qualm was information did not seem to be transferred accurately to the MC, as several names were mispronounced and during our 1st dance our wedding party and all guests were not invited to the dance floor as we had specifically requested. Otherwise, the band was phenomenal and guests can't stop talking about how much fun they had dancing the night away. Groove Place is very professional and an incredible group of musicians that we would highly recommend.

Groove Place Dance Band responded with the following comments:

Dear Client,
I wanted to let you know that the script was handed to the M/C but he still made some pronunciation mistakes. He is very good at announcements and sends his sincere apology to you guys for this! This is the first time he's every done that, so I was surprised to hear this? I know he does review names when he lines the bridal party up for announcements, but I think being outdoors and the confusion of gathering and lining up everyone lead to him not getting around to this?

The announcement of asking folks to join you guys during your first dance was my mistake. We had it on the planner, but I was so involved in playing the guitar for your song, that it slipped my mind. I should of done a better job of notating that on the planner and reviewed it more carefully before starting. I really feel bad about this!

Please except our sincere apology for both mistakes! We will review and change our processes so it does not happen in the future. We sincerely strive to do the very best at every event and I guess sometimes your going to make a mistake no matter what you do, it's human nature.

I really appreciate your glowing review and the gracious rewarding of five stars in each category on Wedding Wire, that was very nice of you!

Thank you and thanks for letting us know,
Dana

If there is a better wedding band than Groove Place in the Philadelphia area, I'd like to hear them. With their diverse repertoire, the band provides an experience that gets everyone--all generations--involved immediately. They make it difficult for people NOT to dance. Our guests made comments like, "I've been to a hundred weddings, but I've never heard a better band," and "Their covers are better than some of the originals." They are very easy to work with and very professional.

Groove place is AMAZING! When I found my wedding venue, the manager there just had her daughter's wedding and the first thing she told me was "you HAVE to get the same band". I am so happy I took her advice. We had the whole ten piece band so you can imagine the sound was awesome , not to mention that they can really rock a party. I swear we did not have one person sitting down at our reception; everyone was up and dancing! In our post-wedding conversations with family and friends, we honestly lost count of how many people talked about how awesome the band was. Thank you so much Dana and Groove Place!! Oh and of course I can't forget to mention how they are great in working with you and communicating before the big day; my dad and I sang a duet and the band was totally cool about playing the song for us and it turned out so wonderful and one of the most special moments of not only that night but it is now one of the most precious memories my dad and I have forever.

We recently had Groove Place perform at our backyard Wedding Reception. From the very start Dana and all of the members of the band were such a pleasure to work with.

Come the day of the Wedding they arrived earlier than expected and were up and running with out a hiccup. As far as the music is concerned Groove Place did an absolutely amazing job. They had the whole dance floor packed for 3.5 straight hours singing along word for word.

After the reception we had a ton of guests tell us Groove Place was the best Wedding Band they had ever seen over the years. I cannot say enough about them and will be recommending them to everyone in the market for years to come!!

Groove Place we love you guys!!!

They put on a great show at the wedding and everyone cannot stop talking about how great the band was! Especially when they exited the stage with their instruments and started a "love train" around the ballroom. That was a big hit. Groove Place made our wedding so special and myself and my guests will never forget how exceptional they were.

My husband and I were just married in April. Groove Place was my favorite wedding vendor to work with from the very beginning of the planning process, hands down. After seeing them perform at one of their showcase, I went home and immediately booked them.

My husband and I selected a mix of Motown and pop music for our wedding. The main compliment we’ve received (and are still receiving) on our wedding is how much our guests loved Groove Place. They kept our guests dancing for the entire duration of the reception, even in the very beginning when guests are normally sitting. And that includes me……..when I probably should have been visiting and thanking tables, I was dancing instead!

I had a very specific timeline that I wanted the reception to follow, and Dana (the band leader) was very responsive and accommodating to all of my questions and needs. He was also very organized and timely, which helped me a great deal.

Groove Place is a FANTASTIC band. If you’re thinking about hiring a band for your upcoming wedding, don’t make your selection without seeing them perform first!

There all great musicians and singers and everyone there was coming up to us saying how great the band is and how much fun they're having. The next day received texts and emails saying how much fun the wedding was and obviously it was the band who made it. They provided the perfect atmosphere and energy no matter if it was a slow or fast dance song. Would easily recommend this band for anyone looking to book a band for their wedding. By far the best price for the best talent out there in the Phila area.

Groove Place was absolutely amazing from start to finish! The first words from everyone who attended our wedding are to commend the band and ask where we found them. From the moment we reached out to Groove Place, they were a pleasure to work with. Dana was absolutely amazing in making sure they accommodated our requests and help with any questions that we had. We scheduled several touch points leading up to the wedding and he was always very responsive and helpful. At our wedding reception, Groove Place had the entire room up and dancing even before the first course was served and the dance floor was packed the entire evening! The band played music based on our input while adjusting to the mood of the room and nailed every song they played. I can't recommend them enough and we have several family members who already want to plan some kind of other event just so we can hire the band again. To Dana and the band: thank you, you made our wedding day magical and amazing!

Groove Place made our wedding! They sounded excellent and were able to adjust their set throughout the night based on what was happening. During their three 10 to 15 minute breaks they were able to play songs that we had requested on their iPod. Everyone was dancing the entire night, which I think is a key sign that you have a great band. On another note, they were much more affordable than other bands we researched around the Philadelphia area.

Dana and groove place were incredible. He was such a pleasure to work with- and service like that does not come every day. The band had the guests at my wedding dancing the entire night. After the wedding- everyone commented how they were the best wedding band they've ever heard- and because of them my wedding was one of the best they've ever been to. If you want to have no worries about your wedding music, then pick Groove Place!

Dana is the kind of guy you feel like you've known for years. He will cater to your every need and question and put you at ease during this stressful time. And trust me- he and the band will bring an incredible show. I really hope that I have another event that I can use them for because they are awesome!!!!!

STOP! Do not hire any other band until you have heard these guys! Our guests are still talking about them 3 weeks after the event! Everyone was on the dance floor the whole time! The event venue manager talked to me about making them one of their preferred bands! If you want a band that understands how to rock a Wedding, relates to the audience, gets everyone dancing, then Groove Place is the band!

Now the details.... a successful event takes planning; it's not only the music. Their band manager, Dana Camacho, is extremely competent and experienced with Wedding events. He understands the planning process, listens to your needs, is readily available to answer questions and worked extremely well with our wedding planner, venue manager, sound company and, of course, us. We met early, picking through their substantial song list, worked out timing and schedule and what we wanted. He then worked with our planner and caterer for a seamless integration. He also took charge in resolving a concern about the in-house sound system and the venue constraints we had. Dana visited the site and came up with a solution that resulted in an incredible event! He knows what is needed behind the scenes to make it effortless. We had a lot of confidence in him and the Band. He also addressed our questions on back-up contingencies, eliminating anxiety about unforeseen illnesses on the part of any of the band members.

Now the performance! From the incredible vocals and presence of Bobby Jones and Jamie, to the awesome horn section, the rocking guitars and drums, they have a great presence! They interacted with the audience, knew how best to sequence the songs, were very flexible and moved with the vibe of the crowd! We felt they understood that it was our wedding and our enjoyment was the most important thing to them.

We highly recommend Groove Place for any event!

Thank you Groove Place for providing amazing dance music for my daughter's wedding. The ballroom at the Philadelphia Cricket Club was rocking all night long. My guests all asked the same question, "where did you find this band"?
Your professionalism shone through the entire process, from the preview of the music, the contracting to the actual event, no surprises. My guests were completely engaged and we all had sore feet from dancing the night away. Thank you for being the cherry on top of our happy, celebration. I hope to have the opportunity to work with Groove place again.

Groove place was the band for my brothers wedding back in 2010! When my Fiance and I began planning our own wedding there was no question as to who we wanted to play at our wedding!!! They traveled probably over 5 hrs to come to upstate NY from PA!! They learned our first dance and created a rendition that was better than the original!!! They created a party that people can not stop talking about!!! They made a lasting impression on all the guests there! I can not say enough about how great it was to work with Dana Camacho! I would definitely reccomend Groove Place for your wedding!!! Having a live band made the party so much fun let alone how great they sound and how interactive they are with the guests!!! Groove Place seperates themselves from the normal wedding band! They are in a class of their own! You will not be disappointed if you hire them!!!! They are wonderful!!!!

I cannot say enough good things about this band- they made our entire reception! All of our friends and family could not get over how amazing they were and how MUCH they played. They interacted with everyone and kept everyone's spirits high. All of our guests were on the dance floor all night and even went as far to say that it was the best wedding that they've ever attended. I would recommend this group to anyone. By far, it was the best money we spent on our wedding!

My decision to hire Groove Place for my daughter's wedding was one of the best decisions I could have made.This band is unbelievable and well worth the money. They made the reception lively and so much fun for everyone.They play a wide range of music from Frank Sinatra through today's pop music. We had well over 200 people at the wedding, ranging from 13 to 85. The dance floor was crowded all night. In fact, we even extended the reception an additional hour because everyone was having a great time on the dance floor.

I received so many comments on how Groove Place was the BEST band people ever heard at a wedding. My 82 year old dad and my 22 year old daughter both raved about how good they are.

The musicians are extremely professional, and easy to work with. The male and female lead singers have amazing voices. The musicians are so talented. If you get a chance, go to their studio showcase to hear them. It is well worth your time. You won't be disappointed.

We can't say enough about how impressed we were with the Groove Place band! We had seen them at a wedding a few years ago before we were even engaged but got their name at the time because we were so impressed even before we were in the market for a wedding band. To our pleasant surprise, the band was even better than we remembered! All of our guests commented on how great the band was. They nailed every single song they played and the dance floor was packed the entire night! From the planning process, to recommendations, to the actual wedding, Groove Place was nothing but first class and a pleasure to work with! They met and exceed all of our expectations and went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was as close to perfect as possible! Thanks to Dana and the band for their hard work and professionalism!

Absolutely fantastic band. Great horn section, beautiful vocals and very responsive to special songs for the first dance etc. Everyone was up and dancing from the first note. Plus they had a nice mix of the oldies and new songs currently playing on the radio. The band manager is excellent at keeping in touch and communicating throughout the planning stages too.
I could go on and on but the short and sweet of it is that they will be playing at the next family wedding.

Comments from the Bride: I have only positive things to say about Groove Place. From start to finish they were absolutely great to work with! Dana, the band manager is so organized. He has quick responses and always give the details necessary; he is concise and to the point but detailed enough to know exactly what is going on. The planning process was wonderful, we did not know what to expect but Groove Place knows what they are doing and helped us through every step of the way! The day of the wedding, I was so distracted with everything going on and I did not have to think about the band. When we came into the reception, the leader of the band came to check in with us and his confidence and calmness took all of my cares away and I knew that I was in good hands! The presentation of all the names - and we had some difficult names - was absolutely flawless and each transition was smooth and they were flexible even when we asked to change something up at the last minute. The band could read the crowd and kept everyone dancing the entire time. They played songs that such a huge range of people wanted to dance to. Out on the dance floor were young adults, children, and grandparents. Groove Place knows how to party! My dad, who was the most skeptical about the band, said that getting the band was THE best decision we made, he said he could not have been happier about their professionalism and performance. Everyone was telling us at the wedding how much they loved the band and they are still talking about it 2 months later! Having Groove Place play at our wedding is the best decision we made :)

I heard Groove Place play at a local bar/restaurant near my house a few years ago and knew right away that they were amazing and unlike any band I had ever heard. Their charisma, ability to get a crowd going, and musical talent is really special. I recommended them to my sister, cousin, and several friends for their wedding and they were absolutely FANTASTIC! Of course, I had them at my wedding, which was recently, and I have to say that they made the event absolutely perfect. Everyone was dancing the entire night and commenting on how awesome the music was. I would highly recommend Groove Place to any couple in need of an amazing 10 piece band for their wedding. You will love working with them and they will leave you and your guests satisfied and wanting more!!!

Groove Place played at my wedding at the Horticultural Center in Philadelphia on March 24. I was absolutely thrilled with their performance. Jazz during cocktail hour was perfect for setting the atmosphere. Once the reception started, they had everyone up on the dance floor from the very beginning. Their energy was amazing, and it never let up for the entire night. They had the entire wedding (including all the horn players) weaving around the room in one of the best congo lines I've ever been a part of. They played a great collection of songs, and they did an excellent job with our wedding song, which they learned for the event. The lead singers did an amazing job, the horns were fantastic, and Dana was excellent - responsive, had great suggestions, was very organized, and extremely easy to work with. We received so many compliments about the band - everyone at the wedding had something good to say about them. I absolutely recommend Groove Place.

If there were more stars then 5, Groove Place would receive it. Every band member was so pleasant and they did a fantastic job at our wedding reception. Many of our guests commented that they were blown away by the band's performance. A special thanks to Dana, he really worked with us to get to know my now husband and what our guests would like. He even worked with our banquet hall contact to see if any additional equipment would be necessary.

If there were more stars then 5, Groove Place would receive it. Every band member was so pleasant and they did a fantastic job at our wedding reception. Many of our guests commented that they were blown away by the band's performance. A special thanks to Dana, he really worked with us to get to know my now husband and what our guests would like. He even worked with our banquet hall contact to see if any additional equipment would be necessary. After hearing them at a showcase they set my expectations really high, and they definitely far exceeded them. I would recommend this to any bride planning their wedding. Read less

Groove Place was amazing! They were wonderful from beginning to end. They were so helpful picking songs, they even learned songs for us. Planning was a breeze with them. During the reception, they were flexible when some of the music order changed. The dance floor was packed all night, and people kept coming up to us to tell us how great the band was. We HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is looking for an awesome band. They were an awesome value. THANK YOU DANA AND GROOVE PLACE!

Hiring Groove Place was the best decision we made for our reception. Groove Place sounded a-maz-ing, and had everyone up dancing and having a great time. I would reccomend them to anyone. They learned our first song and performed it perfectly. They also learned some other music for us. What a great experience and no hassle at all. You know how planning a wedding reception can be. Groove Place made the music part of the reception a breeze. We worried about NOTHING. If you want a talented, classy, fun and experienced band for your wedding (or any event I am sure), GROOVE PLACE IS IT!!! No need to look any further. Thank you again Dana, Bobby & the rest of the band. Groove Place was the BEST!

Groove Place was an absolute joy to work with. They responded immediately when we first inquired about their services, and quickly set up a time for us to come listen to them. We knew that we wanted to book them as soon as we heard them play, and didn't regret it for an instant. They allowed us to pick practically every song they played at our reception, as well as how we wanted the night to go. Our guests loved them and had a great time; we will never forget the experience we had at our reception!

Groove Place played at my Dad's 60th birthday party and they were absolutely amazing.

From my first phone call with Dana, through all of the planning, to the actual day of the party, they were so easy to work with, were very flexible to last minute changes/requests, and put on the an amazing performance. They had everyone up on the floor dancing. I don't think I stopped dancing all night. In fact, they barely even took a break!

They were also very good with the crowd, and incorporated them into their performance. for the entire night. At one point, the saxophonist was leading the entire party through the venue in a congo line, while playing "Love Train."

I can honestly say that they made the night. My mother and I are still getting emails, phone calls and letters from people saying how great of a time they had, and asking who the band was.

Thanks Groove Place!!

GroovePlace is the best wedding band I have ever seen and boy have I have seen a ton. Prior to our wedding day I had never actually seen them live. Two of my friends had, one was the bride and one a bridesmaid, and they could not praise them enough. We watched all the videos and listed to all the demos and they can’t compare the seeing GP live. The warm response and professionalism we received from Grooveplace goes unmatched. We went with the sight unseen based on the feeling we had. Dana goes above and beyond and after booking these guys we knew the wedding would be a success. The dance floor was packed from the first song (7 p.m.-12 p.m.) until the last with crowd even chanting "One more song!" Pleasing everyone one from 21-91 these guys (and gal) just knocked it out of the park. My sister should be getting engaged within the next few weeks and I think we will greatly disappoint our family and friends by not booking them again! So mnay people have complimented us on the choice of band and the variety of music they play so well.

Go with Grooveplace for your wedding and you will not regret it.

So what can I say. Some professionals are dedicated and some go over the top. Groove place went over the top. Anyone could have canceled their sevrvices based on the biggest hurricane of the decade but not Groove Place they showed up ready to rock the crowd which they did. I cannot thank them enough for sticking it out and making our daughter's wedding a huge success. How bout learning the song Rock me like a Hurricane with hours to spare so the bride and groom could use this for their entrance song. They are all great people and very down to earth. So cheers to you Dana and band with another blue hurricane signature drink. Thank you. Fran Besack

They learned our entrance song the night before our wedding since it was during a hurricane - we wanted them to sing "Rock You Like a Hurricane" and they did - true troopers as they all traveled from pretty far places in the middle of Hurricane Irene!

What a great band! From the cocktail hour, to the first dance, to the tasteful dinner music, and finally to the wild and crazy dance floor, Dana Camacho and Groove Place kept everyone at our wedding snapping, tapping, and dancing all night long. Cairnwood Mansion may never be the same! Not only did they learn the first dance for us, but they played the songs we requested, and took very little break time. No one wanted the music to end. Anyone who wants fantastic music with a great variety of selections, professional service, and all-around great musicians should definitely book Groove Place. We can’t thank them enough for their outstanding performance and for making our wedding an unforgettable evening of music, dancing, and fun.

Let me begin by saying that my wife and I are music nerds. Dana and his team were extremely kind and considerate. They offered to let me play a song with the band, learned four songs and helped us craft a set list that hit all the right notes. They sounded as good as or better than any of the bands we ever looked at; and I�m including bands that cost FIVE TIMES as much. Guests remarked how some songs sounded just like the originals and the energy and musicianship were absolutely fantastic. I would be happy to talk about them in more detail if you wanted to contact me at ritujoyc at yahoo dot com. I would strongly recommend you choose Grooveplace and Dana.

Dana and his band Groove Place performed at our wedding on July 16, 2011. They were very professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. I am not the easiest customer and am very demanding. They met my every need without any complaints. They learned our First Dance and the Mother/Son song which they did beautifully. For a 10 piece band their pricing is unbeatable. I did much research on bands and listened to about 6 different ones before making my decision, out of all of them they were hands down the best (even better then the $10k band we looked at). All of the guests at the wedding are still commenting on how much they loved the band and how a live band was a nice touch. I would highly recommend them for your wedding or any special occasion and I will be using them again in the future. Thanks Groove Place for everything.

I wanted a big horn band and that is what we got! Dana, the leader of the band was great to work with! They played music that appealed to every person in the crowd and kept the dance floor packed from the first dance on! All of our guests had such a great time. They even let us (bride & groom) get on stage and sing the last song of the night with the band! Would definitely recommend them for anyone trying to decide to book for their event. Our guests have not stopped talking about them!!! We were just on vacation with all of my cousins and they could not stop raving about how they are the best band they have ever seen at a wedding.

Quite simply, Groove Place was the best wedding band imaginable. We could not have been more pleased! They were courteous and responsive -- the coordinator at our reception site indicated to us that they were very organized and professional. They also were very accommodating -- our first dance song, our father/daughter song, and our mother/son song were not on their play list, but they mastered them. We got a ton of compliments from our guests, including "best band we've ever heard at a wedding!" They were really entertaining, and the voices and musicianship were top notch. We really cannot recommend them highly enough -- they were great, and we had a blast!

Groove Place made my boyfriend's 50th Birthday Party a blast!! Right from the beginning they were very responsive and accommodating. We met the band at our convenience and discussed what songs and what we expected. We placed everything in the hands of the band and they were great. Everything was perfect and went as we wanted and expected. The band interacted with our guests and we loved it and so did our guests. Everyone was up dancing the entire evening. We requested a special Polish song and they learned it with only a few days notice. They were professional in every sense of the word!!! They only took two very short breaks. The next day we received so many phone calls saying what a great time people had at the party. It is a week later and we are still receiving calls! If you hire this band for your special occasion you will not be disappointed. I wish I could hire them every weekend!!! Trust me for our next special occasion Groove Place will definitely be included!!!

If you hire this band for your special occasion you will not be disappointed. I wish I could hire them every weekend!!! Trust me for our next special occasion Groove Place will definitely be included!!! Read less

Having The Groove Place was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding! Their spectacular music and their awesome energy made the evening. No one could leave the dance floor all night--each song was better than the next! All of our guests told us The Groove Place was "the best band they had ever heard at a wedding"---and we could not have agreed more! Groove Place made this a night we will always remember. They were a pleasure to work with and their amazing performance exceeded all of our expectations. I would highly recommend The Groove Place for any event!

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Groove Place. The band performed at our wedding on October 2nd, 2010 and far exceeded any expectations we had. Aside from being such a talented band with a wide range of songs, Dana Camacho, the leader of the band was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He made our special day the best one of our lives. If you want a party that no one will ever forget then you need to book Groove Place for your event.

Having Groove Place at our wedding was the best decision we made!!! All our guests danced all night. They all told us this was the best wedding band they have every seen. They were so easy to work with, accommodating, and professional. If you want a band that are true professional musicians, that can read the energy of the group and play their hearts out then Groove Place is the right choice! They truly exceeded our expectations in every way. Do not hesitate to book them. You will not be disappointed.

people talk about 2 things when the wedding has past. the music and the food. We were so happy when people kept coming up to us DURING the wedding saying how awesome the band was and how much fun they were having.. this was, of course, in between their dance steps b/c everyone was on the dance floor...

we looked at about 5 bands seriously, and probably hundreds of other bands through websites like gigmasters and just google searches. we narrowed it down to a couple within our price range, that had setlists to our tastes. we wanted everyone dancing and having fun to songs they knew and could sing to... 70s, 80s, 90s funk and party music with jazz standards for the ceremony, dinner and cocktail hour.

we went and saw Groove place at a bar in Pennsylvania and instantly were impressed and fell in love. they were playing to a packed house, a typical, mixed nj/ny/pa crowd, standing around drinking and chatting... Within the first song, everyone stopped and turned and was singing and dancing. there was, seriously, a dance floor going on in the middle of this bar, unlike anything i'd seen... a couple other engaged couples were there, checking out the band and we chatted with one or two. They all seemed interested as well...

We booked em for aug 28th of 2010. We did almost the most work on finding a band over anything else.. But once the planning started with Dana, the band leader, it turned out to be one of the easiest parts... He was super easy to talk to, get advice from, and count on when you needed him. He always responded to emails promptly and was knowledgeable about wedding process. He worked well with the event planner & caterer to get his equipment in and set up. we didn't see any of it happen, but it happened as planned. We got to be involved in making the setlist for th wedding and the songs we didn't choose turned out to be amazing. we chose our first dance and they learned it... Dave Matthews Crush.

shredding guitar solo from micheal jackson, sax player in the middle of the dance floor soloing, my buddy on stage playing guitar with the band, mustang sally, trumpet players dancing together to the song, lead singers have great voices, frank sinatra... all memorable moments...

i could go on for hours. these guys seriously rock. dana is so awesome. trust him with your event and he'll have everyone dancing and having a blast. people still tell us how awesome the band was.. i wish we could do it again. if we could, choosing the band this time would be much easier :)

From the sound of the first horn, Groove Place had everyone on the dance floor. Our guest list could not have been any more diverse in ages; we had great-grandchildren, their great-grandparents and everyone in between. Yet absolutely everyone danced the night away to the magic of motown, the sauciness of swing, and even the shake of Shakira. The band was more than flexible, they worked with us to really make the night what we wanted it to be. They even helped us wow all of our guests with our first dance, a surprise swing dance to the tune of "Here Comes the Bride"!

We could not have asked for anything more from the night. We had all the typical last-minute jitters but Dana the bandleader was great in walking us through the steps and helping us stay calm. The band as a whole was personal enough to make you feel like you've known them for years, but professional enough to look damn good in their tuxes (and dress!). The energy was high from start to finish and Groove Place truly made the party. You won't get this pizaaz from a dj and you'd be hard-pressed to find a band that your guests will enjoy as much as Groove Place.
For a good time, call 484-459-0101! Groove Place!

I cannot say enough positive remarks about Groove Place. My husband and I hired them to play at our wedding cocktail hour and reception. They added the perfect atmosphere to the wedding. During the cocktail hour, they had select members of the band playing jazz standards. It was very classy and made for nice background music. This was perfect because people could still do all of the normal chatting that cocktail hour usually consists of but with great music in the background. The lead male vocalist is also the MC. He did a great job with announcing the wedding party. Groove Place learned our first dance song. They were so accomodating in making sure that the songs that we wanted to hear were played. Dana Camacho is the band leader and he is great. He responds to all emails almost instantaneously. He met with us before the wedding to map out a plan. When we left the meeting, we knew we were in good hands. Dana is receptive to ideas and is great at suggesting things that you may not have thought of. The crowd at my wedding raved about Groove Place. I have been getting calls and emails from my guests raving about the band. They have been saying that the band was fantastic and that they hope to get to see them again. Hire Groove Place to play at your wedding!!! You will not regret it!!

Groove Place had our entire party dancing and we received an overwhelming response from our wedding guests. Everybody LOVED them! They are easy to work with, professional, motivated, take a deep interest in your special event, had the best price and blew the roof off the party. They were able to feel the vibe from our party and deliver on our wishes. Groove Place exceeded our expectations and totally rocked. We did a lot of searching and couldn't be happier with our choice. Seriously, there is no need to hesitate when booking this band, the bride and I couldn?t be happier.

Groove Place was the perfect choice for our wedding reception. The band leader Dana was incredibly professional and really knows what he is doing. He met with us several weeks before the wedding and talked through details and took the time to figure out what we really wanted. The band was also extremely flexible and were able to take all of our special requests in stride. They cover such a wide array of music that there is something for everyone. Groove Place had the dance floor packed all night long and was such a hit with our guests that we haven't stopped receiving compliments about them.
