The Premie wedding band of Texas! See our live video here: http://www.thegrooves.net/austin-bands.html We emcee for all events at the reception including announcing of bride and groom, best man toast, bouquet and garter toss, cutting of the cake and any special events you may have planned. If all guests will be eating dinner during our first set, we will play some nice mellow music that people can dance to if they prefer, but it won’t be too loud so that guests can still eat and converse comfortably. We play over a four hour period, which consists of three one hour sets with two half hour breaks during which you will be doing various wedding activities (cutting cake, bouquet toss, etc.). We also can play overtime if desired. We DJ music on our breaks as well, to keep the party momentum going. We have over 250 songs that we can choose from, to match any style to whatever crowd we are playing for which is a much larger selection than most wedding bands have. We play all styles, including standards for the older folks (Sinatra, Nat King Cole, etc.), Motown, Disco, oldies, rock, current dance, country if the crowd is into it, Eighties, and Nineties to the new millennium changing styles to please the crowd and keep the dance floor packed all night. We can wear tuxedos or add hilarious costumes later in the night to guarantee an outrageous extravaganza at your reception! We're different prices for different cities across Texas so call Ron at 512-507-0589 for pricing and availability. Read less

Wow what can I say... our wedding three weeks ago was the time of my life! Your band made the party! I was so excited and couldnt believe that our guests were dancing on the dance floor before they were even done with their salads! The main course had not even been served at people were already on the dance floor bustin a move!!

Thank you so very much for playing every single song i asked for. If you guys didnt know the song as a band, you made sure to play it on your DJ breaks. My wedding was the first and only wedding I have ever been to with a band.. I must say.. DEFINITELY WORTH THE MONEY!

Thanks again!

We were very pleased with Ron and the Grooves. It of course was helpful that we provided a detailed list of the music we wanted them to play so there were no surprises. The energy level was high and the dance floor never emptied all night. Our guests almost universally complemented the Grooves. We highly recommend Ron and the Grooves.

I wasn't sold on having a band, but my fiance insisted on it. It ended up being exactly what we needed/wanted! They were fabulous! Their set up was amazing, music rocked, and they went along with our timeline perfectly! I was on the dance floor the entire time (and have the pics to prove it!!)

I would highly recommend the Groove's. They play a great variety of songs and were always friendly and quick to get back to me. Just have a good plan for music during the breaks.

I interviewed and researched many bands for my wedding reception and am so happy that I chose The Grooves. They were absolutely amazing. The whole night everyone kept coming up to me complimenting my band and asking me where I found them. Ron who is in the band and also in charge of booking was so incredible to work with. He was so easy going and he actually did me a HUGE favor by DJ'ing my wedding ceremony which he usually doesn't do. This saved me a huge amount of money by not having to hire a completely different band for the ceremony. He and his crew were all so nice and played all the right music. Thanks Ron and THE GROOVES for making my wedding night spectacular! ~Jennifer Hancock
