About
Hello!

Thanks for considering GrooveQuest for your event. Since you are looking for a band, you know how professionally-performed live music can enhance the atmospheric-vibrancy of any event. 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&roll&rhythm&blues covers from the 60s, 70s, and surrounding decades. If the guests at your event are diverse and inter-generational, we are the perfect choice!

The core of GrooveQuest is Steve and Lisa O'Brien. Performing in the DC area since 1994, the couple and their band have played many events--from backyard barbeques to restaurants, clubs, festivals, and weddings. 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. The band's repeat clients and 5-star reviews testify to the quality of their performances.

GrooveQuest is not a "corporation" band; Steve (guitar/lead vocs) and Lisa (bass) work with a small group of talented musicians. Drummer Jimmy Proctor joined GrooveQuest in 2013 and has been a steady member ever since. The fourth and fifth members rotate between Bob Farris and Andris Plavneiks on guitar and Rick Aurich on keys and guitar. Each brings a special flare and we match our client's needs with the members that fit best. Unlike some of the "corporation bands" that can be found on GigMasters, the GrooveQuest talent pool is small and tight. This means that you can be confident that the band will consistently replicate their 5-star review performances for every booking.

GrooveQuest will work with you to understand and meet your needs. Our standard 4-piece configuration is an affordable option for small to mid-sized events. For larger events and venues, we are happy to add a fifth player to amp up the excitement. Our sound system, which is low-profile can accommodate venues of up to 600 people.

Your satisfaction and happiness are our highest priority. We prepare carefully and deliver on-time. We communicate easily and completely regarding all the variables of your event. Our experience, abilities, and attitude enable us to implement your vision for your event.

We'd love to rock and roll your event, so book us soon . . . our calendar is filling up!

Love, peace, and understanding with groove,
--Lisa O'Brien for GrooveQuest

Steve & Lisa O'Brien as well as the rest of the band, were professional and tailored their show to fit our needs. This is the most positive feedback that I have had over the last few years regarding a band from our quests. These are professional musicians and it showed in their music and presentation. We were very pleased with how accommodating and caring they were in providing us with exactly what we needed. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

We booked GrooveQuest for a 40th anniversary party for my parents. From the start, Steve and Lisa and company were incredibly attentive and frequently in touch. They learned my parents first dance song from their original wedding to surprise them at the party and were super flexible during the event regarding timing of music in conjunction with other speeches/toasts that were going on. They are extremely talented and played an awesome mix of songs - had people from age 20 up to 80 dancing on the dance floor and I received tons of comments from guests in attendance regarding how great they were. In short - they were awesome and I would definitely hire them again!

Katie and Warrik - It was a pleasure to provide the music for your parents' anniversary party. GrooveQuest appreciates your kindness and generosity. Here's to 40 more years! Steve, Lisa, Jimmy, and Rick

We can't recommend GrooveQuest enough! The band made my 50th birthday a really special occasion. The song selection was great, and they kept the party lively and special and fun. I felt like the band was in my corner the entire time. That kind of support is rare. Awesome band, awesome time!

GrooveQuest was simply fantastic. They were friendly and accommodating, came early to set up, played the repertoire that we requested, and the music was great--really good singing and some excellent solos. Everybody danced like crazy and wished they had called **them** for their own party.
