I have received such great feedback on Rare Groove from everyone who attended our event. This genre of music was a break from the tradition but went down so well. The dance floor was full throughout the evening and the band created a brilliant vibe. The lead singer Elisa interacted well with the guests and the whole band were a pleasure to deal with. Very professional, and on the ball, and they were most flexible with our needs. I would not hesitate to use them again at our next event.
