One of Austin's Favorite Bands

And Top-Rated wedding Band in Texas

The Grooves band has been a favorite of affordable Austin wedding bands and Austin wedding singers since 1991 and has a proven track record of keeping the crowd on the dance floor and partying till the very end of the night. This popular band has been specializing in wedding receptions since 1991 and performs over 90 weddings a year to rave audiences across Texas. The band plays all genres of songs from 60’s to high energy current hits, picking songs to play based on crowd response to ensure that the energy stays rocking all night. They also have a classy dinner set complete with a horn section that adds that extra touch of extravagance to your reception. The dinner set is at a comfortable volume so that while everyone is eating, they can converse comfortably without having to shout. Ron, the band leader, also acts as MC announcing all events throughout the night including best man toasts, cutting of the cake and bouquet and garter toss. He can also provide a microphone for toasts and speeches. The band can wear tuxes all night for a formal occasion or switch to outrageous costumes later in the night during the high energy dance sets. The band provides all sound and lights and is fully self-contained.

The Grooves played at our daughter's wedding at the end of August. We had never met and/or heard the band in person until the day of her wedding. Our daughter and now husband listened to their clip that... was on Gigsalad and the venue also recommended them. We were highly impressed with their vocals as well as their song choices plus the songs that we had requested. They were prompt, professional, and reasonable. If you are searching for a band (not a DJ), we would highly recommend that you seek out this group. We had a wonderful time as did our guests and were very pleased with The Grooves!read more

What an amazing night! The Groves were fan-fabulous! If I heard once, I heard multiple times what a great band we booked. Having the ability to accommodate an age group ranging from 25 years old to 85... years young, playing what was requested, adjusting to the crowd, mixing things up, exceeding my expectations in loudness, softness, having quality singers with superb musicians dressing the part were all factors in our Opa Social being a wonderful success. The quality customer service from the moment of that first inquiry call to the final verbal conversation of ‘thank you’, was not only professional but extremely impressive. Individuals who do not entertain booking The Grooves are missing a reasonably priced wonderful guaranteed fun time experience. Keep being cool.Randy Rust, President Elect of WurstfestKay Rust, Crazy Fan of The Groovesread more

A good time was had by all and I would definitely recommend the Grooves Dance Band to anyone who asks!read more

The Grooves recently played for my birthday party. Everyone commented all night long how great the band was and how they seemed to play a variety of music "just right." Indeed, the music was great, but... I appreciated the professionalism in their pre-engagement and post engagement business. They answered every phone call, e-mail and inquiry promptly. Every communication was candid regarding discussions of costs, number of musicians to perform, and types of music to be performed. I was never disappointed and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.read more

This group was amazing! We hosted our National User Conference in Allen, Texas April 2019 for over 316 folks and this group really got the crowd rocking. They were super communicative during the... engagement process, energetic, great range of vocals, large playlist. They even took on learning a new song at our request prior to the event and played it as the opening song at our finale event. Couldn't have hoped for a better experience. Definitely will be hiring these folks again and highly recommend them to anyone. If you are on the fence, take the plunge, The Grooves are totally worth it. You won't be sorry.read more

The Grooves played for Radians at our 2018 VIP Party. Their energy, showmanship, and fantastic song list, made our party a hit!

Not only is the Grooves band awesome, but Ron is fantastic to work with. Most bands will not play all of the songs that are requested, but Ron makes sure your special selections are played. Our party was... for a dance club whose members like a variety of music from oldies to current, and this band can play it all. The Grooves had played the year before, and were so popular, we booked them again for our Jan. 2019 party. From their playlist, we selected 39 songs which was approximately 3 hours of music, and I think they played every one! People who normally would have left before the end of the party were still dancing to the very end. Countless members have said it was the best party the club has ever had. Not surprisingly, we have already signed a contract to have the Grooves back in January 2020!read more

"I heard about The Grooves through a co-worker who raved about this band that played at his daughter's wedding. I was intrigued so I went ahead and booked them. It was the best decision of my entire... wedding (besides the groom of course). This band is absolutely fantastic. Months later and my family and friends are still raving about the band and how much fun they had dancing all night. One of my aunts actually said The Grooves were so good she'd go to see them in concert. I hired the full band to include the wind instruments, and the music and energy was nonstop all night. I just can't rave enough about them. If you want to have a blast at your wedding and be the talk of family and friends for years, hire The Grooves."read more

As a wedding planner, I have worked with many bands. The Grooves not only impressed me by their amazing performance, but they were extremely friendly to work with, arrived on time, had everything set up... early, tore down and cleaned up after themselves - which helped me save time focusing on other aspects of the wedding day! If you need a vendor that will bring 120% to the stage (the crowd was WILD while they played - the energy was electric) and respond promptly, then you should definitely book The Grooves! I look forward to recommending them to clients and working with them again soon!read more

Awesome, awesome, awesome. If you want your party or reception to be incredible, memorable and downright fun, we highly recommend The Grooves. It was an absolute pleasure working with Ron and The Grooves... for our wedding April 6, 2013 at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center. The Grooves MADE the reception. They read the crowd and kept them partying all night long. Ron’s advice on the play list was invaluable. He definitely knows which songs are ‘cleaners’, thus we culled through 100s of songs picking the best ones that would keep the dance floor hopping and folks of all ages comfortable on the dance floor. That effort paid off as the dance floor was never empty. The dinner set was perfect because people could still converse and hear each other while many of the folks actually got up to dance between meal courses. We had 80 year old to 6 year olds dancing the night away with most of the 180 guests staying until the end of the reception. We never thought so many folks of all ages would be there at the end. The costume changes added to the energy and was well worth it! Folks commented on how great it was at a certain point where a few band members got down on the dance floor to amph the party up another notch. The evening went seamlessly from introductions to first dance to speeches to our exit song. Ron kept things moving in a tasteful and classy manner. Everyone RAVED about the band, saying it was one of the best bands they have ever experienced at a wedding. – Steve and Leah Jonesread more
