Darshan Sanghrajka, Corporate Book Launch Party (11/08/16)

Thanks for being such amazing entertainment - everyone loved it. I've passed your details on to anyone who asked.


Phillip, Wedding, Oxfordshire (24/09/16)

Got the place dancing. Did an acoustic set in the bar and then a full set in the main room. Smashed it. Great band for our wedding. All ages had a blast.


Terry Charlton, Birthday Party Event, Cambridgeshire 15/10/16

What a great time we had thanks to The Groove, they had the place rocking and I've had many nice comments from my guests. Thinking that I need a band in the future, The Groove would be my first choice.


Olivia and Aaron. Wedding 31/12/16

Thank you so much for Saturday night. We really had the best day ever and you guys were just fab. Even my dad (who is a very picky man!) said that he thought you did an incredible job. The vibe was just perfect and your set list kept everyone dancing all night. My memory starts to fade at about 11:00 but I'm sure it was great after that too!


Gill Rance Private Party, Hertfordshire. 02/12/16

Great party band, recommended.

Excellent, the vocalist was really enjoyable, great voice, very professional, band very good. We’ve had some good feedback today. Lovely people, very friendly.



Alan Watts. 6th May. Rockingham Castle. Wedding

‘Thank you for your brilliant performance at our wedding Reception at Rockingham Castle on the 6th of May. Your band truly made our evening reception a great success and a memorable one.

Amongst our guests were quite a few musicians and all of them agreed your band and their performance was outstanding. We could not have picked a better band. In fact, I would say The Groove were by far the best band I have ever seen at a wedding party and many of our guest’s agreed. Your great repertoire of songs and polished performance had our guest’s on their feet all night.

If we ever get the opportunity to recommend a band for a function or wedding The Groove will be top of the list.’


Florence Barton 17th April 2017. Bibury

We really wanted a band that kept our guests on the dance floor, and that’s exactly what we got! We also requested a first dance outside of the usual repertoire, but The Groove took the time to rehearse it, and it was the perfect first dance we could have wished for. I’d highly recommend!


Grace and Daniel Webby 27th May Suffolk

Rare Groove performed at our wedding in Suffolk. They were so fantastic! We couldn’t have asked for a better group to get our guests moving. We have had so many compliments since the big day saying how much they loved Soul Patrol Not only were they brilliant musicians, they were really lovely & friendly. Myself the bride didn’t leave the dance floor, every song was so good! I would highly recommend The Groove! Thank you for being amazing


Caroline & Sam (wedding 17 June 2017)

The Groove were communicative and friendly from the outset. We chose the band based on their fun setlist, which was a really cool mix of modern and older songs. The band were flexible and played two sets, which worked out really well. They were very professional and everything seemed to run smoothly on the wedding day. The laptop set before/between the live sets also worked perfectly and they did a great version of our first choice song for our first dance.

Despite the ridiculously hot weather (not always conducive to a lot of dancing), both of the band's sets had the dancefloor filled from the start! All of our guests, young and old, were up and dancing at one point or another and it was a real highlight to see everyone having a great time to Rare Groove's music. So many people came to find us to say how great the band was and how much they were enjoying the music. Although the sets were full of floor-fillers, the music was classy and not too cheesy, exactly as we'd hoped. We loved the funk/soul tinged sound and the band, from bass to vocals and everything in between were all on top form! 

We're already recommending the band to friends who are planning events. We think this was the most Sam (the groom) had ever danced and everyone there could tell what a fab time we had dancing the night away!
