The Grooves are a long-established Austin band that specializes in providing the highest quality Country and variety entertainment for weddings, wedding receptions, corporate events, galas, birthday parties, reunions, and much more. The Grooves formed in Austin back in 1991 and come highly recommended for any party looking to hear some good ol’ Texas country as well as some crowd-pleasing top 40 dance music. We’ll bring the best music, best performance, and the best quality sound and lighting production that Texas country has to offer.
Austin is home base for us. Over the years, we’ve played thousands of shows here so, as you can imagine, we’ve performed at just about every major event center in the city. These include Krystal Falls, The Driskill, Casa Blanca On Brushy Creek, Cedar Street Courtyard, and many other popular venues.
We’ve been around. That gives us and you an advantage. We know what to expect with each venue including size, acoustics, setup, and so on. This enables us to help you prepare well for your event, get set up quickly, and play the best sets possible at the right volume.
Proper song selection is the one of the ways we keep people tuned in all night and with our 200 plus song selection, we know exactly what the crowd wants to hear from minute to minute based on crowd response. We also recommend you request favorite hits to guarantee you get to hear all your favorites. If the band doesn’t perform the songs live, we can put together a custom DJ list of your favorite hits to DJ on our breaks. We can even throw in a few songs from other genres so the crowd gets a little variety thrown in the mix and also take requests through the night. The Grooves dance songs also include music from other styles such as Motown, reggae, swing, soul music, latin, r&b, and pop.
The band’s performance is staged in accordance with the agenda for the evening. For weddings we usually start off during cocktail hour or dinner and play slower and mid tempo music at a lower volume so people can enjoy their conversations and cocktails without having to leave the room. Come party time, we perform high energy, full throttle entertainment that focuses on keeping the dance floor full with audience interaction. The Grooves engage the crowd with one sing-a-long after another in a series of rehearsed medleys and transitions all without missing a beat. We can also play all your requests and DJ any songs that are not on our performance list to make sure you get to hear every one of your country favorites as well as any other genre you prefer.
The Grooves provide quality sound and lighting production that surpasses the other bands attempting to play in our league. We have the best quality sound system with a brand new, state of the art mixing console, wireless microphones for the singers and a digital drum set that perfectly suits the needs of any room the party’s in. Our light show is unparalleled with our light engineer providing the best party lights for any song the crowd is ready to dance to.
