Verified profile

Groove Collider provides a mix of pop, rock, disco and soul classics. We like to think we're one of Birmingham's top wedding and party bands offering a tight sound, powerhouse lead vocals and perfect vocal harmonies, on-stage banter, mixed with an energetic live show that provides the perfect entertainment for any event. Our main lineup is a five-piece band consisting of vocals, guitars, keyboards, bass guitar and drums. We tailor the look and sound to meet the needs of your special event. If required we can also offer a smaller band for a more chilled setting such as a wedding ceremony or drinks reception where we'll perform a range of slower cool tunes. GC mainly perform at wedding receptions and private parties where our guests require a mix of party tunes that get all the guests involved. We also occasionally get booked for corporate gigs and have performed for hundreds of guests at: • Birmingham Hilton Metropole • Clearwell Castle • Grovesnor House Hotel • Jury's Inn Hotel • Birmingham City FC • Plus numerous private functions, corporate events, charity balls and weddings. The GC team are happy to travel to most locations within an approximate 100-mile radius of the West Midlands. Team Groove Collider

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Groove Collider provide a polished, professional set of upbeat pop and rock hits. We have fun with the audience too with chat and banter, so it keeps everyone relaxed so they enjoy themselves.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Hilton Birmingham Metropole Jury's Inn Cheltenham Birmingham City FC Maxstoke Golf Club Coleshill Tennis Club Spring Grove, Bewdley Sadler's Brewhouse Ledbury Rugby Club Kennel-worth Rugby Club Eastnor Castle Sudeley Castle

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

This is a difficult question. We take influences from old pros like Queen to more up-to-date artists like Ariande Grande and Justin Timberlake. So we're pretty varied.

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

Charity Ball at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole for Backup Trust. The party consisted of over 400 guests all in fancy dress. We have performed for the charity 2 times so far. Just brilliant!

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

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-audititioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes we do. 5-piece Band: Vocals(Female/Male), Guitar, Keyboards, Bass Guitar, Drums. 3-piece Acoustic Band: Vocals, Guitar, Bass

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If you need us to arrive earlier or perform later then we can try an accommodate you.

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

Yes. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for FREE. You can create an online playlist via Spotify, share the link and we can plugin this on the night so it is completely tailored to your songs choices.

How much time do you need to set up?

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

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

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event

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

Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote. We also require 3 to 4 13 amp sockets to power our equipment. Space-wise we usually require a minimum of 3 metres deep by 5 metres wide stage area that is flat.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £100-200 for this service depending on the complexity of the song.

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!
