Booked Groove Directory for a Wedding

We had Groove Directory play for our wedding and being someone who works in the events industry I see many bands throughout the year. Groove Directory were professional, very competent and capable. We had many compliments from our guests as to how good the band was. They really got the party going with an excellent selection of music which was tailored to our wishes and all beautifully played.

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!!
