Emily P, 4 years ago

Wow, what an amazing band!! Monika has such a beautiful voice and the talented musicians on bass & keyboards were the perfect combination, playing such beautiful music!! I received numerous compliments about the band from my guests and I would highly recommend them! They were punctual, professional, very friendly and adaptable enough to be able to respond to the crowd, getting eveyone up dancing & creating a fantastic atmosphere!! We had quite a few swing dancers at the party and Monika was even willing and able to put a 'swing style' to much of their music, which was fantastic & very well received!! The Cool Groove Trio were the perfect choice for my party & I would definitely recommend them! (10 / 10)

Wedding, 4 years ago

Thank you Monika for such a holistic and warm performance. We were so pleased that you were willing to perform your own version of our favourite song on request; it was the icing on the cake for our special day. Your calm and friendly demeanour seemed to get the best out of our tiring crowd; not to mention your silky vocals. Your band were both friendly and professional; they made the effort to chat with guests in between sets. My words can't really do you justice but I would like to personally recommend you to anybody who is looking to hire a band. Thanks again Monika - Matthew and Melissa Collins (10 / 10)
