Customer questions

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?

Our main line-up is as follows: Vocals(Female/Male), Guitar x2, Bass Guitar, Drums. We also have options for a solo guitar AND acoustic pop/rock duo with acoustic guitar + duel vocals.

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. However after 12 midnight you may incur extra charges. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

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. We don't offer a DJ service, but if you provide a track list prior to the event we can make sure these are uploaded for you. There may be an additional charge for this.

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 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

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!

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.
