What people say Help

  • They were great! I hope to use them again next year for our summer ball (which they played at during this summer too), they were excellent and everyone enjoyed their music. Thank you guys, Rebecca

    Rebecca, Charity Dinner, London, September 2013
  • The Groove Addicts were brilliant. They were professional and organised in the run up to the event, and outstanding performers on the night! They were also lovely, lovely people to work with. From the first song to the last virtually every guest at the wedding, from age eight through to eighty, was on the dance floor. Our guests are still raving about them over a month later. Best wedding band we've ever seen! Highly recommended.

    Stuart, Wedding, Cumbria, July 2013
  • The Groove Addicts are quite simply a great live band! Adam was fantastic to deal with over the phone and the whole band were a delight to work with on the night. Their arrival and set up was seamless, no fuss, very professional. We had a varied age group of guests, but the set was perfect for our event and kept the dance floor full all night long! I had excellent feedback and I would definitely recommend this band to friends, family, and professional clients alike. I can't praise them enough, such a fantastic sound and a genuinely lovely group of people. It was a perfect end to our night. Hopefully we'll work together again in the future.

    Katie, Charity Event, Worcester, May 2013
  • They were excellent from start to finish, very professional and did a fantastic job. We have the same group booked for another event in September which we are looking forward to. Thank you the Groove Addicts.

    Rebbecca, Corporate Summer Ball, London, June 2013
  • Very satisfied, the band arrived on time and were very professional. The music was brilliant as we danced into the small hours. Our event was a huge success. If you go onto downsyndromeliverpool.org.uk I am sure you will be able to see some of the photos of the evening. Would we use them again? Definitely.

    Margaret, Charity Event, Liverpool, May 2012
  • The PERFECT wedding/party band! The Groove Addicts were absolutely fantastic and a pleasure to deal with. I booked the band for my wedding at Rivington Barn Bolton after finding them on the Function Central website, and they did not disappoint. Samantha from the band contacted me prior to the big day to discuss all the nitty gritty details and the band's set list. They arrived promptly on the day and were very professional throughout. They played our first dance which was beautiful, then they turned it up a notch and really got the party going with a great mix of old and new music. The dance floor was full all night and everyone at the wedding really enjoyed the band. I cannot thank the Groove Addicts enough for the party atmosphere they created and for helping to make our wedding day absolutely perfect!!

    Catherine, Wedding, Bolton, April 2012
  • Book Groove Addicts now! They were fantastic from beginning to end. Prior to the event, Samantha from the band phoned to check details and first dance etc. When they arrived in a torrid snowy Manchester they were super-professional and thoughtful about the party going on around them. The band was first class with a really wide and varied set that got everyone (and I mean everyone) moving and shaking! They really created a fantastic atmosphere and delivered a great performance. Thanks to Groove Addicts for bringing the party and to all at Function Central for your professionalism.

    Tom and Thea, Wedding & Leaving Party, February 2012
  • I booked The Groove Addicts for my wedding. I checked out their song list and emailed my song choices. A band member contacted me before the event to make sure all the details were correct. This reassured me and it was one less thing to worry about the wedding. On the evening the band members introduced themselves, they were very polite and professional. The first dance was lovely. The singer had an amazing voice and the music was spot on. Further into the night the band played all my songs from groove is in the heart to your sex is on fire. I danced all night and the lads were jumping up and down. One of my wedding guests asked if he could sing some songs to me on their break and they let him do so which was very kind. To sum it up the band was amazing and was the best part of my wedding day and everyone I spoke to afterwards agreed!

    Yolanda, Wedding, Wales, September 2011
  • We would just like to say a massive thank you for recommending The Groove Addicts. What can we say....They were Fab!! A young, relevant, friendly and professional band who exceeded our expectations. They really got the crowd going! I would recommend them to everyone. A great band, great sound, great play list and great value!! Thank you Function Central and The Groove Addicts for helping us make our wedding day so special.

    Sharon and Michael, Wedding, Chester, August 2011
  • The Groove Addicts are youthful and energetic, with a great female vocalist who got plenty of guests lighting up the dance floor with her ability to sing pop, funk, and old school swing!
