I cannot begin to describe how unbelievable Groove Authority was at our wedding. My wife and I got married on April 5th, 2014, and I am still receiving texts weeks later about how great the band was! They had everybody out on the dance floor from my grandfather to my wife's 12 year old cousins. We even had people who told me specifically they would only dance for 1 song that were out there for hours! Every time I walked more than 10 feet off the dance floor, there was somebody telling me how great the band was. They truly made the wedding.
The band accommodated custom first dance, father daughter, and mother son songs, all of which were not on their playlist. They executed them perfectly!
MOST IMPORTANTLY: We had a bit of an issue with the venue. They came up to us very late in the party telling me that the band had to cut off at 9:30 despite the fact that that was not outlined in our contract with the venue. We had contracted Groove Authority to play until 10:00, and Paul (the manager of the band) dealt with the representative for the venue extremely well. He convinced her to let the band play until 9:45 and cut out the second 15 minute planned break for the band so that way they could play straight through until 9:45. I cannot thank him enough for his professionalism and courteousness.
I must also mention that the whole lead up until the wedding, the band was very responsive and timely with my wife's requests. They were by far the best vendor relationship we had during our wedding planning.

I had to give Paul and his band 5 stars across the board. Groove Authority played our wedding at the Omni Parker on Fab 22 and they ROCKED THE HOUSE!
Leading up to the wedding, Paul was extremely organized and responsive. He took all of the stress out of planning the entertainment and music. We were lucky enough that they were free the night of our wedding and once we booked Groove Authority, Paul took care of everything. A true professional.
On the night of the wedding, the band had actually learned our first dance song, and also played the father/bride, mother/groom songs perfectly. They also played the piano and sax during our cocktail hour perfectly. We gave Paul and the band a bit of an idea of the type of music we like and what we thought the crowd would like but more so left it up to the pros and didn't pick a specific play list. Paul mentioned that the band was great at reading a crowd and they certainly didn't disappoint. The entire wedding was on the dance floor then entire and LOVING the band. They were definitely a hot topic amongst the guest.
We honestly couldn't be any happier with both how the band performed, and Paul's professionalism and attentiveness while going through the process of booking the band, and planning the event.
I would HIGHLY recommend Groove Authority to any body planning a wedding, or any other event for that matter that needs a top notch band.
Thanks again to Paul and Groove Authority.

Groove Authority made my daughter's wedding a real celebration and a night everyone said was the best wedding they had ever been to. They sounded terrific, played great songs and had the dance floor filled the whole night. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is thinking about a live band at their wedding. Forget investing in flowers for tables, go with a live band over a DJ - it makes all the difference in the world. Paul Fudin (Band Manager) is very professional and easy to work with. I have three more daughters and if they decide to get married near home, Groove Authority will be playing for them too I am sure.
