Attendees enjoyed the band. Entertaining.
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
