Booked Groove Manuva for a Wedding

Groove Manuva played at our evening reception on the 2nd of June and they were amazing! From the first contact with them nothing was a trouble from learning how to play our choice of first dance to our children pestering them throughout the evening and even on their break between [url hidden]uldn't fault them one bit. Everyone was up dancing all night and was full of compliments for them. I would deffo reccommend and if we were to do our day again we wouldn't hesitate to re-book yourselves. Thankyou so much to everyone involved you guys are fab!

The dance floor was bouncing!

We booked Groove Manuva for our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made about the most perfect day of our lives. From the start Mitch was wonderful, so friendly, happy to play our first dance and do the best man’s favourite song in the second set. They arrived early, set up really subtly so as not to disturb our day and just waited out of the way until we were ready for them.

The sound check sounded amazing.... we knew we were in for a real treat! And we weren’t wrong.

From the first song the dance floor was full and the band really engaged with us and our guests. Having a laugh, playing and singing their socks off and breaking drumsticks in the process �

We’re not going to get married again but I’m now planning my 40th and I already know who I’m going to use. It’s in two years Mitch so I’ll book you soon �

We were very glad that we went with Groove Manuva to play during our wedding reception. The extremely talented bunch played two lively sets, comprising music that all generations will love. They add a great personal touch to the tracks, and deliver each piece with a ton of soul and character. Highly recommended!
