GroovePlace was the best that we could have ever picked!!! We went to a showcase at the band leader's house a year before our wedding, before we walked out, my fiancé and my parents all agreed, this was the band for us. We booked them that week and were all so excited for the wedding music. A few weeks before the wedding, we set up a Skype call between Dana and ourselves, Dana went over every aspect of the wedding to ensure the day would be perfect with our music choices. They band was willing to learn a couple songs that were not on their list, and they did an amazing job not only performing those songs, but the whole night. Our guests are still raving about how amazing our band was, was the best they ever heard!!! I 100% recommend Groove Place for any special event you may have in the future!!

Groove Place was extraordinary on my wedding day! They played every kind of music and entertained every one of my guests! They made my day even more magical then I ever could have imagined. Almost a week later, and guests are still calling to tell me how fantastic Groove Place was, and that it was one of the best weddings they had ever been too. I give Groove Place my highest recommendation as entertainment for a wedding or any other type of event. My wedding would not have been as amazing as it was without this group!!

I can't begin to say enough good things about Groove Place. They were an awesome, awesome band! They sounded and looked absolutely amazing up on stage! They played the entire evening and had everyone, young and older, up out of their seats and dancing the WHOLE night! During the wedding guests were coming over asking where I found this band and telling me how good they sounded. Weeks after the wedding I am still having guests tell me how amazing the band sounded. I would highly recommend Dana and this band... just fantastic! The next event I have I will most definitely be using Groove Place. I can't say enough great things about them!! Definitely check out one of their showcases to hear them, they are all true musicians! If you see them play live there will be no doubts about their ability to play, and play well! I give them a 10 out of 10!

We booked Groove Place to play for our wedding and we did not regret it. After speaking with Dana directly, we felt very comfortable and really liked the way he handled the selection process. They were able to tailor the music to our selections and were very flexible in the order of doing things. If you like big band sound and like classic oldies, this band is definitely for you. We had a blast at the wedding and the majority of people were on the dance floor all night. The night of and day after the wedding, we received a number of compliments from our family and friends who attended the wedding. I highly recommend Groove Place for the value that they provide!

Can’t say enough good things about Groove Place. They kept telling us they were ready to rock at our wedding and boy did they deliver. Everything was handled very well from our meetings through to the end of the performance. They were very flexible and handled all of our special requests. They did a phenomenal job keeping the dancefloor packed and even lead to a mob of our friends and family chanting “one more song” at the end of the night. I think this quote sums it up best:
As we are waiting around the corner to enter the reception…
Bridesmaid “I love that you have some Whitney Houston on right now, when does the band start?”
Bride “Oh that is band, get ready!”.
Thanks for creating so many great memories for the two of us and all of our guests.

Dana, I don't know we're to start, the band was terrific. I told my wife that people were looking for reasons to approach us just to say how incredible the band sounded. They couldn't believe that I found you on the Internet. When Don and Melissa attended Lehigh they were both members of Kappa Kappa Si, which is a band fraternity. Melissa was the chapter's president. There were alot of musicians that attended the wedding and they were impressed. If the music and vocals weren't spot on they would have known. People were telling Don before the reception started that he should have brought his horn, we didn't want to give the suprise away. The horn section really completes your sound. When you played "Scenes From An Italian Restaurant"my wife and I kept turning around to hear the piano and tenor sax. They are both unbelievable! What else can I say, a relative of Melissa ' s who's from Long Island New York took a business card. She said I live 4 hours away and wanted something to remember the band with. I guarantee that 99.9% of the people won't remember what they had for dinner but will remember the band, even if we had fed them hot dogs with a side of sawdust! Again, you and the band were amazing, give our best to everyone! Don Seserko.

Groove Place has a special place in my heart for two reasons... First, they played for Brother's wedding and completely brought everyone to their feet and on the floor. Secondly, we had the privilege of having them play my wedding at HollyHedge Estate!

Groove Place is an amazing ten piece horn band, who can (and will) play any song under the sun, and will do so to perfection. We also hired them to do a 3-piece jazz ensemble for our cocktail hour, which added even more musical fun, especially since they played on a balcony over-looking the courtyard. During the reception, people were not even eating their dinners right away, but were going on the floor to dance. As soon as the parent dances were over, everyone jumped right onto the floor, and it stayed that way through the rest of the night. People were sad when the night was over!

Dana will listen very carefully to what you say as you plan the night out, and will deliver everything as promised. They do a wonderful job with master of ceremonies duties. I cannot say enough, and neither could our guests, as all loved the night and all the great dancing Groove Place brought to our wedding! They will also do ancillary requests, like providing a mic and speaker for the ceremony, if it is on-site.

Highly recommend Groove Place for your big day!!!

We hired Groove Place to play for my daughter's wedding at our home in MD. We traveled to PA to listen to them last fall, and from the moment we heard the brass section, we were hooked. The female vocalist and the male vocalist were outstanding. Dana, the manager, was personable, flexible, and very cooperative.
Our family and friends love to dance, so having the right band was very important to us. All of our guests raved about Groove Place. The dance floor was packed the entire evening, The newlyweds rarely left the dance floor; our daughter did come over to us in the middle of one song just to tell us how supremely happy she was!
At one point in the evening, we had a severe storm. Water poured in the tent, and the band was unable to use any electrical equipment. The horn section kept playing while we brought towels to mop up the water. No one in the band complained, and as soon as the storm passed, Groove Place had the place jumping again.
If you love to dance, you cannot go wrong with Groove Place. We are all racking our brains to think of an excuse to have them here again as soon as possible!

Groove Place was awesome!!!! Our dance floor was packed all night and our guests raved about them. They even stuck it out through a crazy thunderstorm. They were super flexible and even learned some songs that my family specifically requested. We want to have another wedding just to have Groove Place again!!!
