About Bombay Groove

String quartet
London
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Bombay Groove is an exciting ensemble which draws its inspiration from India’s rich heritage of film and music.

Bombay Groove is a London based ensemble specialising in Bollywood music. We were established in 2010 as an offshoot of the already well respected London string quartet, the Aviva Ensemble. We saw that there was an increasing need for live music ensembles to offer repertoire that was diverse and cross-cultural. That is when Bombay Groove was formed: western-trained professional musicians specialising in Bollywood music. We are regularly booked to play at both Indian weddings and Fusion weddings due to our ability to easily adapt to your requirements. In addition to Bollywood music we can incorporate western classical and popular chart hits into our play list for your event. We can be hired for weddings, corporate entertainment or private events. Bombay Groove operates mainly as a string quartet but is also available as a string trio or with the addition of trumpet and percussion. We know that every wedding and event is unique, which is why we offer you a variety of options. We tailor make your package to meet your exact requirements, helping to make your event special. All of our musicians have many years of experience in the function industry as well as playing with some of the country's finest orchestras. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra to name a few. You can therefore be assured of the highest possible standards.
