Groove Directory are a 7-piece covers band based in Birmingham. We have a broad repertoire of funk, soul and pop, covering music from the 1970's to current hits, often with a unique twist!

GD was established in 2015, and is made up of talented musicians studying a variety of subjects at the University of Birmingham. We have performed at numerous student and business events, as well as performing for the touring vintage DJ group Itchy Feet.

With our true-to-life covers of the classics to our original interpretations of contemporary chart toppers, Groove Directory is the perfect band to get everyone up and dancing!

We are adaptable to other styles such as classic rock, reggae and ska, and are happy to accommodate song requests if given sufficient notice. We can also offer more relaxed sets over meal courses or between presentations.

University Of Birmingham Mathematics Society

Fantastic and professional performance! Everyone at the ball would definitely agree that you made the evening. You were super lively and got everyone dancing straight away! Would absolutely recommend to anyone if they're holding a ball, or in need of entertainment!

At the PPS Spring Ball Groove Directory were one of the highlights of the evening, providing fantastic music and a wonderful vibe. The array of instruments in the band work brilliantly, with Theo Jobst on saxophone and David Berrisford on trombone bringing a unique twist that few other bands have. Additionally Abi Farrell gave her all on the vocals, lending her powerful voice to an excellent selection of covers both new and old. As a band, Groove Directory were perfect for our ball and I would highly recommend them for anyone who wants a terrific band for their event.

Thank you so much for performing at the University of Birmingham's HAS OSCARS awards ceremony. You guys were fun to be entertained by and, by the feedback I've been getting, were very well liked. Keep up the good work, keep entertaining and put on the best show possible as you did on Friday night. Much love X

Groove Directory were AMAZING and really lit up our event! There was not a single person in the room that wasn’t dancing, serious shapes thrown. Not only are they incredible musicians, but their passion and enjoyment of playing radiates off the stage. They look like they’re having (almost) as much fun as the audience. Would book them again in a heartbeat.

Groove Directory performed at the EPS Societies’ Awards at the University of Birmingham on Wednesday 8th June and were absolutely fantastic! The Awards are a formal black-tie dinner celebrating student achievements; apparently unlike any event they’ve worked in the past. The evening had Groove Directory playing in the University’s Great Hall to over 250 guests. They were amazing! I couldn't have asked for anything better and our student, staff and external guests thoroughly enjoyed their stints between meals and full set to finish the night properly. Many commented on how good they were and are considering booking them for their own events! They were brilliant with some unexpected issues we had on the night and are great to work with. Plus they sound incredible and really got our guests going. Thoroughly recommend and I’ll be booking them again!!
