The first moment my family and I met Dana the coordinator and heard the bands set, we were hooked. The band learned 3 songs we requested in full and even played some special music for the groom & I, as well as our families to walk out to during introductions. Everyone raved about the variety of music played and even guests that weren't attending our wedding but we're staying at the hotel venue were out in the main lobby Dancing and singing along. We had a spectacular wedding and the band did a wonderful job making it a truly memorable experience. Thanks again Dana and the rest of the band for making it a night to never forget, my feet are still recovering from dancing the night away!

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!!

First and foremost, booking Groove Place was the best decision we made. We booked Groove Place without seeing them in advance or word of mouth, but based on their amazing reviews, great youtube demos, and really versatile song list. They were amazing at our wedding!
The band absolutely rocked and got everybody in the place dancing with gusto. I had several people come up to me and ask if the band would play in NY (for their wedding or son or daughter's wedding). A few people told me it was the best wedding band they've ever heard! Dana (the band leader) was very communicative, forthright and pleasant to deal with in planning the songs and order etc. He has a really nice disposition and I enjoyed working with him and never had to worry for a second about the reliability of the band. They absolutely rocked! I would unequivocally endorse them and recommend Groove Place!

We recently hired Groove Place for our wedding, and have nothing but great things to say. They upped the energy of the wedding crowd, and played both classic and modern hits. Both the male and female leads were excellent singers, and the horn players made the dance floor extra special. I highly recommend this band for your next event, and I would highly suggest booking all 10 pieces. The horns are worth it!

AMAZING! We booked Groove Place based on their reviews and videos. It was a leap of faith that paid off! From the very first correspondence with Dana we were extremely pleased and knew we made the right decision. His response time is like no other. His ability to get a feel for us and the atmosphere was top notch. The day of the wedding went perfect. They didn't miss a beat. I had no idea they even took a break! We have a large family, full of energy and they matched it. The dance floor was packed the entire night! our family favorite was Sweet Caroline. We do this at every family wedding... And there's been many. Everyone said this was the very best! My guess is neighbors for miles would say the same thing. All of the thank you's and goodnight's at the end of the night had mention of how unbelievable the band was. We are so incredibly grateful to have chosen Groove Place. We feel like our family has grown. Much love! Shannon & Jamie Shultz

Groove Place provided an amazing, five-star experience for us and our friends and family. We saw them perform a showcase and were impressed by their sound. They are true musicians who excel in a broad range of musical styles. Dana is the guitarist and manager and he was very easy to work with. From discussing the contract to the details of our big day, he was friendly and professional. We met with him about a month before the wedding to discuss the type of music we wanted to hear, as well as the names of our wedding party and family. They delivered on everything we discussed. The show they put on at our reception was first class. The music was excellent and the whole performance was high energy. Jamie, the female lead singer, absolutely killed it on "If I Ain't Got You" for our first dance, in addition to everything else she sang. Bobby, the male lead singer and Master of Ceremony, has a great voice and excellent showmanship. He pronounced every name perfectly and kept our evening on schedule and entertaining. All of the musicians put on a great show, including sizzling solos on the horns, and a "Love Train" that virtually every guest joined and danced all through the venue. We cannot say enough about the quality and value Groove Place provided for us. We truly consider them friends for making our wedding so special. We will never forget them or that night!

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!).
