"We were organising our first Summer Ball at Taunton Rugby Club and we wanted it to start with a bang, we thought of Groove-a-licious straight away and they didn't disappoint, they made a Great night truly memorable!" - Mark Shirly, Taunton Rugby Club (June 2017).

A massive thank you to Groove-a-licious, an incredibly talented set of musicians that had the audience of our country pub captivated for the whole evening! Feedback from our customers has been exceptional, they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are enquiring if the band will be returning to the pub! We hope to see you in the future! Thanks again. - The Sidmouth Arms Upottery (May 2015). Sidmouth Arms Website

" I booked Groove-a-licious for my retirement party and there were over 260 people. The moment they played the first number there was a buzz around the hall, There were a number of people dancing. but a lot of the guest just enjoyed listening to the music. The whole evening far exceeded my expectation and I have had numerous e-mails and telephone calls thanking me for providing a great band with a good choice of songs. It was certainly a night that will be remembered for a long time and everyone is talking about it at Hinkley Point where I used to work. I am still on cloud nine as I am still living every moment of the party. Thank you and well done to Groove-a-licious. - Joe De Souza (October 2014)

"Knowing one of the band members, we thought it would be fitting to have Groove-a-licious play at our wedding on 18th December 2010. The weather that day certainly gave a new meaning to the term 'white wedding'. The band battled through blizzard conditions for 9 hours to make it in the nick of time. They set up in record time and played two fantastic sets of back to back crowd-pleasers. The repertoire has something for everybody, and the band's enthusiasm and talent are infectious enough to drag even the most reluctant to the dance floor. A most dedicated group of people, whose efforts and performance made for an all the more memorable wedding occasion for us." - James & Joanna Nield

"As the purchasers of your fabulous sound at our son, James, and Jo's wedding at Woburn Abbey just before Christmas (I imagine you wouldn't forget that gig in a hurry ...??!!) we wanted to send you all just the biggest Thank You possible for your wonderful efforts in getting to the Wedding. We had the feeling that everyone there hugely appreciated this too, as it felt like an extremely lively session. Certainly, afterwards people were saying so many complimentary things – both about your music, but of course also about your determination not to let everyone down!! What Stars you all are!! Brilliant!!" - Chris & Frank Nield

This gig's travel progress got us a quick chat on Radio 1 press on the play button to listen!

"Thank you so much for making our wedding evening just so great, everyone loved the band, you were all very much appreciated, and I hope that you'll be free to play my 40th in 3 years time !!" - Clare Davies Green

"Just wanted to write a quick note to give you and the band a massive thank you. You were superb at our wedding. Talking to people afterwards everyone raved about you. You got everyone up and dancing. Excellent funky music. A proper wall of sound. And on top of the great music, you are great to deal with and top professionals. I will be recommending you to anyone who needs a band. I'll be keeping an eye out for you playing whenever I'm down in south west. I'd love to see you perform again" - Chris

"Luckily enough I was at Groove-a-licious' first ever gig and so I have loved the band since the beginning. My now husband and I went to see the band play in Taunton and decided that if ever we were to marry Groove-a-licious would be the band that we'd choose to play at our reception. There was no other option in our minds! When we got engaged we contacted the band first to find out their availability and voila - a date for our wedding was chosen!! The band were fantastic from the booking stage and they certainly delivered on the night. They sounded great and looked fantastic. I spent the whole time on the dance floor along with most of our guests! We have had so much positive feedback about the band, I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Thank you to all the members of the band for making our wedding a very special evening." - Kate & Morgan Jefferies

"We'd heard a band playing at the Jazz Cafe in Reading , myself and my fiance were desperately trying to find a band to play at our wedding. When we heard them we knew they'd be perfect, as soon as they had started playing the dance floor was filled, exactly what we wanted for our wedding reception. Well, what can I say they didn't disappoint!! For the two sets they played at our wedding the dance floor was filled the entire time, everyone old and young was dancing. The guests were so impressed that a few friends of ours who are due to get married next year have asked for their contact details, you can't get higher praise than that!" - Lisa and James Hibberd, Romsey-Southampton.

"I have read so many of these testimonial things & worry that they are not genuine because it always sounds too good to be true - but this is genuine! We were married on the 16th Feb 2008 in Taunton and this band made a perfect ending to our perfect day. If like us finances are an issue then make sure you get your priorities right & book this band. People don't remember your fancy wedding cake or your elaborate flowers or your fancy wedding car, but they will remember if they sat by the dance floor bored by the disco. They were without doubt 'groovy' & most definately 'licious'. The only downside of having groove-a-licious is that the reception venue have now asked us to replace their dance floor! For anyone thinking about booking a band don't hesitate on booking this one. A massive thank you to Richard & everyone in Groove-a-licious. We are now official Groove-a-licious groupys and will be following you around to all your gigs!" - Amy & Lee

"What can I say everyone had such a good evening, and I believe that was mainly down to the band. I had told people how good you all were, prior to booking you.Thank goodness you all delivered on the night. Just keep a date free for next August. I will be in contact again very soon. Many Thanks for a great night." - Gina

"Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. Many of our guests have commented on how great you were. We first saw you the first time you played at the Blackdown Beer Festival 2 years ago. We thought you were fantastic and said then that if we ever got married we would like you to play at our wedding. It was one of the first things that we booked, even before the marquee as we were so keen to have you. Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band. Thank you" - Helen and Alex Woodward

"Groove-a-licious went down extremely well. The dance floor [which was the biggest the Marquee Company could remember installing] was packed from start to finish. I think this is the acid test of a band at any function. The range of music was perfect - and was in tune with the age group which ranged from early 20's to mid 60's. Many thanks for the excellent entertainment - and I hope to be able to book Groove-a-licious again in the future. Many Thanks" - Dom

"We first heard the band two years ago at a friends wedding and knew then that Groove-a-licious would be playing at our venue which we were planning. They did play for us on June the 10th 2006, and were again fantastic. They really got the party going even though the venue was probably not the best location for a live band, to me that itself shows the talent of the band. I would have no hesitation in recommending Groove-a-licious for any occasion, party or function. They are complete professionals and undoubtedly talented. The help, organisation and communication in the lead up to the wedding was again a first class service. We cant praise the band enough and if you don't believe us, go and see them you will not be disappointed. Thanks Groove-a-licious for a fantastic night" - Ian & Gina

"You guys are without any doubt the best funk/soul band in the Southwest, if not the whole country, all the guests were full of praise, Several people in the group have been involved in organising similar events, and said that you guys were the best they had ever heard. The dance floor was full from the moment you started to your final encore, the cards you gave me have gone, so can you send some more please. We met the Bride and Groom and friends on Sunday at the local pub and everyone was still talking about the band and how much they had enjoyed the music. As best man the whole day had to go perfectly, it did and with your fantastic music ended on a complete high, I cannot thank you enough and hopefully will see all of you and dance to your music again in the very near future. Good luck with every gig you do" - Steve Gallimore

"Groove-a-licious played at my wedding on 10th July in a Marquee on top of a cliff in South Devon. I really can't recommend them highly enough. I have been to a lot of weddings and private parties over the past few years which have been let down by hiring ropey discos or second rate bands. It is a real mine-field trying to find the right band without ever actually seeing them play. I can only urge you to stop your search here. These guys are a truly professional outfit who had everyone from 2 to 90 years old dancing all night. I can honestly say that I have not been to a wedding where so many people have danced so hard for so long. We have had no end of compliments from our guests about them and all I can say is that I got very, very lucky when I stumbled across their web site" - Nathan Knight

"I got married on June 11 this year. I had little doubt when we selected the band from the internet that they would be great - they lived up to our expectations and the dance floor was packed all night. Not only that, but guests afterwards commented on how much fun the band were. I highly recommend this group - they sound fantastic and look the part as well. I myself, couldn't stop dancing!" - Julie Hills

"A really big thank you to Groove-a-licious for contributing to a fantastic night. It was great to have so many phone calls from our friends the next day telling us what a good night they had had and how much they enjoyed the band" - Aimee Metcalf
