Groove Place Dance Band killed it. We had very high expectations after seeing them perform at a showcase; our expectations were completely and totally blown out of the water. From the beginning my father's main concern was booking a fun band, after the wedding and into the next day he could not stop talking about how he had booked the PERFECT wedding band.

My husband and I were waiting to be announced and we heard I Will Always Love You come on, he turned to me and said, “I love this song, I’m glad they put this on the iPod”. I had to remind him that it was actually the band playing. From that moment on I knew we were in for something special. And that’s a Whitney Houston song!

Groove Place Dance Band had the dance floor filled after the first song (usually it’s a struggle to get people to venture onto the dance floor) and packed until the final song. The evening flowed wonderfully and they always knew the right song to get the crowd moving. I honestly have never had more fun than the last 30 minutes of my wedding when the band was playing perfect crowd pleaser after perfect crowd pleaser.

We had our wedding at the Constitution Center, which is a large space, and Groove Place absolutely filled it. The horns sounded huge, both singers were beyond great, every single member of the band deserves a shout out because they pretty flawlessly covered a wide range of songs from The Beatles to Ke$ha.

The band also played dinner music during cocktail hour, which wonderfully set the mood.

Dana was great to work with; he was very accommodating of our time and schedules during the planning process. The whole process from booking the band through the end of the wedding was smooth sailing.

Overall, I could not recommend Groove Place Dance Band more highly, we will certainly be recommending them to all our engaged friends in the Philadelphia area (We want to see them play again!).

Wow. That is all that I can say and that is all the our wedding guests said.
Groove Place Dance Horn Band was phonemail in regards to sound, energy, ease to work with, and overall experience. I would, and have, recommended this band to my friends and family who live in the general area because they were that good. It is not an exaggeration to say that EVERY guest at our wedding had such wonderful and amazing things to say about how good the band and music was at our reception in Carlisle, PA.
The horn section set them apart from other bands we were looking to book for our wedding, and they did not disappoint - they were on point, sounded amazing, in harmony, and kept our entire wedding on the dance floor the whole night.
They were extremely accommodating to my wife and I, as, since we were in Carlisle and not able to meet with them face-to-face as they had requested, they Skyped with us for our interview to ensure that they got a feel for what we had in mind in regards to the music we wanted played at our wedding and it worked out perfectly. They mixed in new music, with amazing oldies, and classic staple wedding songs that made the reception one to remember and one not soon forgotten.
Groove Place was awesome!

Groove Place Band was absolutely amazing! We are still receiving compliments about them! The music they chose, the emceeing, the energy - all of it was fantastic! I saw people dancing that I never expected to dance. In my opinion having a live band at a wedding beats a DJ any day and Groove Place proved me right. They were amazing and the songs they covered sounded just like the real thing! My husband and I strongly suggest this band if you want your wedding to be a fun, fun time!

What more can we say that hasn’t already been said about Dana and the band Groove Place? From the first conversation we had with Dana (he called the day after we filled in the online info request form) to our goodbyes after the event and follow-up emails, it was a real pleasure working together. Dana is a real people-person and he wants his clients to be happy. He does whatever he can to fulfill any and all wishes. We had a 5 hour reception and he worked with us to have different musical arrangements (piano and trumpet at ceremony, jazz trio at cocktail hour, and full 9 piece band for the final three hours) throughout the entire event. Unfortunately Jamie was unable to perform at our wedding because of a health issue, but Sheena filled in spectacularly for her. Jamie, we missed you (!), but Sheena, our guests never even knew you were not the regular lead vocalist! Thank you for your rendition of “You’re the Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me”. We loved it.

Our guests raved about the band all night and afterwards. We even had several male cousins on the dance floor and they said it was the highest compliment to the band because they never dance in public! We are so pleased that we chose Groove Place to make our party exactly what we wanted it to be.

As an aside that may matter to some people, ours was the first same-sex wedding for Groove Place and we could not have felt more love and respect from the band. They really care about their customers.

We don't even know where to begin! We could not have asked for a more incredible wedding band. Groove Place was seriously unbelievable and worth every penny. Dana and his band worked incredibly well with us. We were living in Cincinnati at the time of our wedding which was in PA and Dana kept in constant contact with us, having Skype calls with us to make sure everything was perfect.

Groove Place is able to play HUNDREDS of songs, and works so closely with you to make sure your wedding day is perfect.
There were seriously times when we thought the band was on break because the live version of the songs they play sound even better than the originals, they really are that good! We wanted a packed dance floor for our entire wedding, and Groove Place made sure that happened. We can't even begin to count the number of people that came up to us throughout the wedding raving about the band. Their song selection was great, the music they played while on break was great, overall everything was perfect!

Thanks again for everything Groove Place, you guys ROCK!!!

We could not have been happier with Groove Place and the entertainment they provided on our wedding day! They were the single best decision we made while planning our wedding after hearing great reviews from another couple who used them. The dance floor was packed the entire night, the timing of everything worked out perfectly, and everyone had a blast! We can't tell you how many of our guests raved about the band and told us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. They knew just what to play to keep the crowd dancing and the party going all night. They were also a pleasure to work with, so accommodating, flexible, responsive and enthusiastic. You would be lucky and very smart to have Groove Place play at your own event. We wish we could relive ours!!

We found Groove Place on WeddingWire, looked at the reviews, listened to the demos, and went to see them live at one of their showcases. We are very serious about music! The showcase was awesome. They crunched down a wedding reception into 40 minutes so we could hear snippets of all the different music they play, the way they make announcements, everything. They were awesome.

About a year went by until we heard them again at our wedding and they were BETTER THAN WE REMEMBER! Guest after guest came up to me to tell me how great the band was and how much fun the wedding was. They really made the night! The brass section makes all the difference. It really gets guest's attention and gets them on the dance floor! We could not have chosen a better band for our wedding day and we would refer them to anyone looking to book a band for a wedding or special event. The price was even better...this was the best price we could find for 5 hours of music! Best music, best value, best time!

Thank you Groove Place for making our wedding day so memorable and FUN!

love - Sarah & Travis

Groove Place made our wedding extra special and memorable. Ever guest (and I mean ever single person!) was on the dance floor all night long. Dana was a pleasure to work with as he was super flexible and professional. He listened to the types of songs my husband and I wanted and created an amazing playlist. Groove Place knows how to get everyone on the dance floor and more importantly, their talents keep guests of all ages dancing. I would highly recommend Groove Place and Dana to anyone looking for an incredible experience where all guests will talk about the wedding and band for years to come!!!
