Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

All our performances are high energy and sure to get everybody dancing! Our singers are great at interacting with an audience and makes it feel like a show you are involved with, as opposed to any other regular gig.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

All sorts! We have toured supporting various bands and artists and played throughout the country. We have performed in various big theatres and even gone abroad in the past, so everything is constantly an amazing experience.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We take influence from all sorts of artists and genres! Big influences are Bruno Mars, Beyonce, The Killers, Take That, Stevie Wonder, Tina Turner, ABBA, Queen and The Spice Girls to name but a few! Chances are if you name someone, we will probably want to play something by them.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

As mentioned, we have toured extensively with various artists and bands. Though recently we performed at a venue completely unaware Chesney Hawkes was in the other room! A very star struck experience for us.

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

We aim to keep our line up as consistent as possible. On occasion a pre-auditioned 'dep' musician may be used in case a band member is ill or unavailable on the date. All our players of a high calibre and our reputation is very important to us

Do you have different line-up options?

We range from a 4-9 piece band consisting of: Male Vocals/Guitar Bass Keyboards Drums And then for additional costs we can add: Female Singer Sax Trumpet Trombone

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

No problem with us, we try to be as flexible as possible to ensure a great day! Just let us know running up to the event and we will do our best to work with you for the best solution

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

We provide music as soon as our PA is set up for no extra cost! We typically include a DJ service until midnight, or 30 minutes after the band's final set. If you require longer than this, we can provide music for an additional cost.

How much time do you need to set up?

We typically need 1 to 1.5 hours depending on the size of band booked. If time is running short we will do our best to set up as quickly as possible.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

We welcome suggestions of tunes, artists and styles you like but we do not allow anyone to pick every song we perform. We are very experienced in putting set lists together and tend to know what works best. We also often adapt set lists on the night depending on audience reaction, to ensure everyone has a great time!

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Yes, we provide all of our own PA equipment and lighting.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We can learn one bespoke song per event, usually reserved for a first dance. If you require any extra songs we are happy to learn them for an additional charge

We hired Fresh Grooves for our wedding recently, thanks to the fantastic music and atmosphere they created, everyone had an absolute blast! Booking, selecting playlists and communication has been excellent, quick and easy throughout. They are certainly crowd pleasers and kept everyone singing and dancing all night. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for excellent live music from a genuinely enthusiastic team.

We hired Fresh Grooves UK for a work event last week and they were brilliant! Every single person loved them and would highly recommend! They created a great atmosphere and covered a variety of different music. The whole process of booking was really easy and the whole band were so lovely! Couldn’t recommend enough and can’t wait to hire them again for future events! ☺️
