Couldn't have hoped for a better experience with a band for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary party! Steve, lisa, and the entire GrooveQuest band were the epitome of professionalism and talent. They learned my parents wedding song (Moon River) and played a lot of other songs we requested ahead of time. Frankly, I didn't expect much dancing at the event, but grooveQuest brought the "groove" out of this crowd!! They are incredibly talented and genuine. Hire this band! You won't be sorry. :-)
Thanks for considering GrooveQuest for your event. Live music (especially ours :-) will enhance the atmosphere and success of your gathering. This profile describes GrooveQuest's 4-5 piece lineup. Steve and LIsa O'Brien, leaders of the the group, also perform as a duo, so if you are interested . . . especially during this uncertain time . . . let us know and we will send bids for both the full band and the duo.
During this period of physical distancing due to COVID 19, GrooveQuest is endeavoring to find the safest ways to provide life music. We consider ourselves to be LIve Music First Responders. We have started performing again in local DC/MD/VA clubs and restaurants carefully with masks when not on stage and pop-screens for our vocalists' mics. Although the behavior of the audience is the responsibility of our clients, we use our platform to encourage distancing, mask wearing, etc.
But, enough about the virus, let me tell you what we are all about. GrooveQuest knows how to tune into what your situation requires. From ballads and easy-listening tunes for receptions and dinners to dance-inducing grooves . . . we play rock 'n' roll and rhythm & blues covers from the 60s, 70s, and surrounding decades...with a little country thrown in.
GrooveQuest dates back to 1994 when singer-guitarist Steve O'Brien and bassist Lisa O'Brien joined forces. Drummer Jimmy Proctor and lead guitarist Bob Farris first played together in the 70s! (Read about Bob in the recently published book, “Rock the Potomac!”) Whenever possible, we're joined by legendary sax 'n' flute man Gene Meros. This is our lineup…who you'll get when you hire GrooveQuest. We're small and tight, so you can be confident that GrooveQuest will consistently replicate its 5-star performances.
In addition to our GigMasters/TheBash clients, GrooveQuest has enjoyed years of regular gigs at Clyde's Mark Center and other restaurants/clubs. During the concert/festival seasons, GrooveQuest is a favorite of local towns and municipalities, including Howard County Sunset Serenade series; the Pleasant Hill Fire Department Carnival in Hanover, PA; The Live Concert Series in Wilson Plaza, DC; and the Downtown Holiday Market in DC.
Our sound system is state-of-the-art, and we operate it expertly! It's another reason we sound great!
We're easy to work with, and our experience, abilities, and attitude enable us to implement your vision for your event.
Thanks for choosing Live Music; Thanks for choosing GrooveQuest!
