We chose Groove Collider for entertainment at our wedding and they were amazing. Before the day all the communications were helpful and professional. The music was amazing, brilliant song choices delivered by really talented musicians. So many of our guests commented on how awesome they were and how well they engaged the crowd and got people dancing. Also really friendly lovely people. Highly recommended if you want a superb music from lovely people. If I could give then more stars I would!

I used them for my 60th Birthday party for 150 guests. There was a great selection of music that was loved by people from 20 to 80 years of age. People even started dancing to the sound check! I would certainly use them again. Every song had people dancing to it.

We chose Groove Collider after weeks of searching online for a wedding band. We were delighted to find a five piece band with great vocals within our budget and a very reasonable price. Planning a wedding through lock-down was tricky but they were in constant communication and replied within a day. On the wedding day itself,they arrived when they said they would, and waited to set up after the speeches as they lasted longer than expected. The dance-floor was packed from half way through our first dance up untill the last song they played. We would recommend them in a heartbeat and thank you very much for making our wedding the day it was.

Groove Collider performed at our wedding a few weeks ago and we couldn’t be more pleased with their performance. Leading up to the wedding they kept us up to date via email with their rehearsals and it was nice to have a recording of our first dance song before the big day. Really appreciate everything you did for us. Thank you!

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time.
