Groove Place is a ten-piece horn 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, 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.
Free public gigs to watch the band live! Ask any questions, talk to the musicians, and get a really good feel for how amazing and different the band is compared to everything else out there.
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.
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.AMAZING! We booked Groove Place based on their reviews and videos. It was a leap of faith that paid off! Their ability to get a feel for us and the atmosphere was top notch.
Five stars does not seem enough to rate how wonderful Groove Place is.Based on multiple recommendations from family members and experiencing Groove Place at their weddings, we knew Groove Place had to be the entertainment for our wedding. We were beyond thrilled by Dana's enthusiasm while working with us.
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!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.
Hiring this band was definitely one of the wisest decision we made about the wedding.Groove Place was AMAZING! So easy to work with, very responsive, and they truly know their craft. They definitely transformed the atmosphere of the reception, and we received MANY compliments about the band and the music at and since the reception!
They learned our song for us, which is super obscure, and they did a beautiful job performing it.Groove Place absolutely crushed it at our wedding. They played great sets and kept everyone on the dance floor all night! They were professional and kind, from the original open house they had to display their talents, to the personal meeting with Dana discussing our idea of good dance music and specialty songs!
The music was incredible and they kept our guests on the dance floor all night long.There are so many wonderful things I could say about Groove Place, that it's hard to know where to start. We knew after hearing the band play their first song at their showcase that they were the band for us! Dana was an absolute pleasure to work with, always reassuring us that everything was going to work out seamlessly. The night of our wedding, they absolutely blew us away!
Dana and his crew were wonderful to work with!Dana and his crew were wonderful to work with. On the day of the wedding they arrived on time and set up sound for the outdoor ceremony all during a heat advisory and epic humidity. We didn't have to worry about a thing! During the reception my maid of honor decided to rap and the band backed her up with a beat on the spot! They learned a few songs outside of their rep just for our reception and played them beautifully. Everyone was on the floor all night and we received multiple compliments on the music selection and the energy of the band! Thank you Groove Place for making it a night to remember!!
The fact that you guys learned the song Radar Love complete with the guitar and drum solos was icing on the cake that we will never forget.I think I speak for everyone when I say we were blown away by you and your bands performance! I knew you guys would be good, but I had no idea you would be that great! The love train with the horns going in the loft, and your solos right in the middle of the crowd was awesome. The songs you played could not have been picked better.
They even were nice enough to end the night with an encore in tribute to my parents, that was a touching surprise and an excellent conclusion to a wonderful night.Groove Place Dance Horn Band did an amazing job for us at our wedding that took place at the Horticulture Center. in Fairmount Park. From their showcase, planning along the way, and finally to our wedding, they kept everything going smoothly and kept our guests on their feet!
We are actually still getting compliments and rave reviews on the band from our guests!I knew Groove Place is a great band, because I heard them a year earlier at my cousin's wedding, but they exceeded every expectation I had. Dana was a pleasure to work with - very professional and detail-oriented, yet easygoing. They have an extensive, constantly-updating repertoire and plenty of old/new songs from which to choose a "must play" list, but they really know how to read and play to the crowd. They kept the dance floor packed all night long with guests from all generations. You will NOT be disappointed with Groove Place!
Near the end of the night they called my husband up on stage and had him sing with the lead singer to one of his favorite songs!If you're looking for an amazing wedding band look no further!! Groove place is absolutely amazing and we couldn't have thought of another band to have had at our wedding. Everyone in the band are super sweet and they really get into it! A memory I will never forget and thank them for. Everyone I speak to now comments on how awesome they were and how many songs they know. By far the best band to book for your wedding or any other event! :)
The Groove Place ROCKED our wedding reception (and ceremony!)They got everyone on the dance floor with a mix of current songs and the oldies everyone loves! They did an amazing job, and everyone mentioned how much they LOVED the band! Thank you, Groove Place!!!
It didn't take us long to realize that the first choice was the best choice! Not only for the quality of music and entertainment, but also for the price!Groove Place was one of the first bands recommended to us for our wedding (they have already done several other family weddings), but of course, we did our research and checked out a few showcases. They were an incredible 10 piece band. We had a wedding of over 200 guests and everyone was having an absolute blast. Their catalog was extensive and covered a very wide range of styles (which was crucial considering the age range of our guests). I cannot recommend this band enough! Do yourself a favor an check out one of their showcases before booking with anyone else.
Many of our guests said they were the best wedding band they had ever seen!Groove Place was very responsive to our requests, even re-learning a song at our request, they had a diverse range of music and did a wonderful job interacting with the crowd and keeping everyone energized and having a great time. Even 5 months after our wedding we still hear about how much people loved the band at our wedding. They also preformed at our ceremony and did a great job, even in the rain. They were definitely worth every penny and we would suggest them to anyone looking for a great live band for their event.
The Groove Place has now played for two of our daughters' weddings and we have been thrilled with their performance both times.If you are looking for a band that will keep your guests up dancing all night, entertainment that will have your guests singing along with the music, and musicians and vocalists who give 200 percent all night long, then look no further. Again, and again, our guests told us how much they loved the band and the way the musicians connected with the audience, who continued to request encores even after the reception was over. They are the absolute best ever!!!
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!
Both the male and female leads were excellent singers, and the horn players made the dance floor extra special.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. I highly recommend this band for your next event, and I would highly suggest booking all 10 pieces. The horns are worth it!
They learned a special song for us for our first dance, and kept people happy the entire evening.Groove Place was amazing! As soon as we heard them play at their showcase, we knew we wanted them to play at our wedding - and we are so happy they did!! Everyone was on the dance floor all night. We are still getting compliments about how great our band was. Thank you for an amazing night, the band really turned our wedding reception into a party!
Their song selection is fantastic, and they work closely with you to make sure you have all the songs you love as well as songs to fit the preferences of the crowd in attendance.On a scale of 1-10, Groove Place is a 100! I cannot give them a higher recommendation: from their performance, to the ease of dealing with them, to their wonderful personality and character, Groove Place is outstanding.
Dana was a pleasure to work with as he was super flexible and professional.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. 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!!!
The dance floor was packed the entire night, the timing of everything worked out perfectly, and everyone had a blast!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. 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. You would be lucky and smart to have Groove Place play at your own event. We wish we could relive ours!!
They even learned a handful of songs that we couldn't live without!!The band rocked it out. They played a variety of the songs we requested and ended up playing longer than we payed them for. Jamie is so easy to work with, and she really gets the crowd involved. Groove Place are the best!
Great experience from start to finish.Jamie and Dana are both extremely responsive and pleasant to work with. Everything from the booking and contract, to the details meeting and day of wedding went perfectly. Our guests would still be dancing if Groove Place was still playing. Couldn't have asked for anything better from this band. Worth every penny!
If there was a rating higher than five stars groove place would be it in every category!!From the very beginning dana was amazing, we picked every song from start to finish and when I missed the very last song of the night they played it again for me! They really are the best of the best and I would recommend them 10 times again! If you're getting married and have groove place as your wedding band I highly suggest having love train played! The sax will lead it around your venue and truly get everyone involved. So special! And so so awesome my hats off to you guys.
Dana and the band were an absolute dream to work with from beginning to end.We are so thrilled to have Groove Place perform at our wedding. Dana was extremely helpful and positive throughout the whole process and even helped us surprise my dad at the end of our parent dance. Not only did the band sound incredible, but they kept our guests on the dance floor all night long! My guests said that they felt like they were at their own private concert. One guest even said that their feet hurt so much from dancing, but the band sounded so good that they didn't want to leave the dance floor. We are so so happy with our choice to hire Groove Place for our big day and we cannot reccommend them enough!!
They are a really tight dance band with a fantastic horn section, especially the sax player.Groove Place played at our daughter's recent wedding and had our guests dancing the entire night! The band is extremely accommodating and will learn any song for the bride and groom to dance to as their first dance. Professional service, great playlist and fun, fun, fun.
HIRE THEM!We hired Groove Place to play our wedding in August, 2017, and they were FANTASTIC! We knew that after going to their showcase at Dana's house we were in for something great, but that is an understatement. We chose the 10 piece band. Dana was not only professional, but warm and inviting and was a pleasure to work with when planning the details of the wedding set list. He was accommodating, organized, and answered all of our questions without delay.
