The band was fantastic and everyone had a great time. However, they did not abide by the contract to play for 4 hours after it was communicated clearly by email they would play from 8-12. Even though the program said ends at 11pm, the chairperson announced at the break the band would be playing until midnight. It was embarrassing when they did not come back. Also, the theme was "It's your birthday" so they we're asked via email and agreed to open with Celebration but did not. I have requested compensation for the hour not played.

Irresistible Groove / Groovetown’s Response:

The event we played for Lisa went amazingly ! Lisa sent me a timeline 3 days prior to the event that had the band stopping at 11pm . When we arrived at the venue the hotel staff informed us that everything was stopping at 11pm as well . There were signs posted everywhere at the event stating that the event was from 7-11 . So as instructed on the timeline we finished at 11pm as the entire staff starting closing shop . In our dressing room 10 minutes later Lisa informs us that she wanted us to play until 12am . We told her then we would get ready and head back out but SHE declined and told us we were great and that everyone loved us . lack of communication happened !

The did a fantastic job. It is not easy to keep 600 kids entertained for 2 hours, but they did just that. What a great finish to our festival.

There are very few “sure things” left in this life, but I can assure you that if you book the GrooveTown Band for your next function, it is a “sure thing” that your guest are going to have a great time and your function is going to me a winner! The GrooveTown Band performed at our family reunion and the consensus is that it was the best reunion ever! If you are looking for a super talented, super professional, very accommodating band with the ability to play to almost any age demographic – stop wasting time and book this band! Some of the terms used to describe the band were amazing, outstanding, unbelievable, highly energetic, fun, the best!
