Groove Kitchen Band
Groove Kitchen Band is an energetic wedding band based in Seattle, WA. These talented musicians and vocalists have many years of experience taking wedding celebrations to the next level with impressive live performances of songs that crowds know and love.
Groove Kitchen Band had its genesis in 2005 in a world music and Latin jazz band. This band produced an album from which some tracks were used in a movie soundtrack. The collaboration has evolved hugely over the years. In 2011 the dance band was created and was named "Groove Kitchen". This band has been entertaining crowds at weddings and other events ever since. Built around an amazing lead singer, the band focused on hits from classic RnB icons such as Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, and Michael Jackson but more current dance turns are constantly being added to the list since young couples always have requests.
Although the funk is what the Groove Kitchen is known for, the broad backgrounds of the band members means that they know how to play jazz, Latin and many other genres. They often play a vocal jazz dinner or cocktail set for their wedding clients. In fact, with a slightly different configuration, they have played many many weddings and corporate events as a straight up jazz, swing, or Latin jazz band. Today, whether they're playing soulful R&B or a setlist full of dance tunes, these professionals can get any crowd out on the dance floor.
The band is dedicated to making every couple's special day an unforgettable experience for them and their loved ones. They can perform at cocktail hours, dinners, and late-night receptions, effortlessly transforming their sound to fit the atmosphere of any occasion. They travel to events throughout WA and surrounding states, so wherever there's a party, this crew can be there! Bringing joy, laughter, and great music wherever they go is Groove Kitchen Band's specialty.

The COVID shutdown took its toll on the music business. Many bands and venues closed up shop. Our lead singer, Stacey, who was one of our original members lost her job and moved to Florida. We were lucky enough to get the amazing, world class, Emily MacIntosh, who has opened for legends such as Mavis Staples and Al Green and has even performed live with Huey Lewis. Take a look at our latest video with Emily. That is the current configuration of the band.
