The Groove Club Collective

The Groove Club Collective is no ordinary band. They are very talented musicians and singers and also have their very own sound engineer that enables them to perform not just in small village halls or back gardens but also large venues across the country such as in Exeter, Wales and the NEC, Birmingham.

They are very popular at birthdays, weddings, hen and stag weekends festivals and hotels such as the Cricklade Hotel & Spa and Sudbury House Hotel in Faringdon but have also been the go-to band for WH Smith in Swindon for the last two years performing at their Summer Ball, Christmas party and the 100 years of WH Smith celebrations at the Cotswold Water Park De Vere Hotel in South Cerney.

Some of the add-on features offered by the band are a full high-quality sound and light show, a piano and vocal duo performance with James and Carmen, a full 5-piece band or an add-on DJ.

Currently The Groove Club Collective can offer a 20% discount off bookings for weddings/events for 2024 in the postcodes SN6, SN7 and GL7.
