What they say about ‘The Groove Membership’?
Quote from previous clients –
From the initial point of contact with The Groove Membership, booking our band couldn’t have been a smoother process. After discussing what our first dance requirements were, they provided us with a recording so we could practice! We picked some of our favourite numbers from their set list and to say the band are world class is an understatement. We wanted a band with experience but youth, and thats what these guys are! They literally made our day! Outstanding.

Q: Can we request a song for our first dance?
A: Absolutely, TGM would be honoured to play your first dance! After a quick discussion with you to make sure it would work with our line-up, our in-house arranger Jon will get started on a live version of the song and even provide you with a mock up recording so you can practise!
Q: Can we request other songs that aren’t already in your repertoire?
A: TGM love expanding our rep so we actively encourage requesting songs we don’t already play (as long as they will work with our line-up)! We include up to 2 request songs for free per event, any more than that attracts an additional fee.
