Verified profile

We’re The Groovy Cats - a professional party band that will make your event special. Since 2013, we’ve been playing around the UK & Europe - at weddings, parties, functions and ski resorts. The band started like all good bands start - as a group of friends making music in their spare time. We played a few local venues and quickly grew a following, which lead to us playing weddings and parties. That's when we realised our calling! Ever since then we've been travelling the length of the country doing what we do best. We care about two things: Making sure the music we play is creative, high-energy and entertaining & filling your dance floor all night. Enquire now to secure 'The Groovy Cats' for your event.

Customer questions

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

99.9% of the time. We haven't had a situation where the singer or any other member can't perform an event. However, if something was to happen, we have a roster of high-quality 'dep' musicians that can fill in at a moment's notice.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line up is: drums, bass, guitar, keys, trumpet, sax and lead vocals. This is how we like to perform but if you would like to add any extras get in touch and I'm sure we'll be able to help out!

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

We are flexible on the evening. We charge an extra £150 an hour for anytime before 6pm or after midnight.

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

Yes we provide this for free until midnight.

How much time do you need to set up?

It takes an hour or so to set up, preferably before the guests arrive so we can soundcheck and keep the guests excited to hear us for the first time. As soon as we're set up we can provide some music through the PA to get the atmosphere right.

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. If you have specific requests we will do our best to incorporate them.

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

Yes.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, we're happy to learn 1 song for free. This covers first dance songs or just one of your favourites.

Dear Groovy Cats, What can I say? You did Pudsey proud. You‘re a lovely bunch of chaps who transformed our BBC outside broadcast and really brought the party to life. Thank you again for your commitment and sense of fun. And you looked damn cool while doing it. Thank you, if I ever get married again I am booking you. (Just don’t tell my wife!!)Tom Ingall BBC Look North
