What size bands do you offer?
The Groove Party can offer 3 sizes of band for you. The 6 piece is the standard line up. The Groove Party also offer a 4 piece, which is slightly more indie/rock/soul orientated.
For 2018, We have introduced a 5 piece line up, which we have already taken a number of bookings for. It's currently looking to overtake our 6 piece option in popularity.
What sets and times do you play?
Prices listed are guides based on a 6 piece band performing 2 x 60 mins or 3 x 40 mins sets with an arrival from 18:00 and a Midnight finish.
Do the band play music between sets?
As standard, the band provide music between sets, either from their own catalogue of party hits or giving you the option to bring your own iPod/MP3 player to play through their PA.
Do you take requests?
The Groove Party also offer a DJ option, where they can take requests from your guests, saving you hundreds on a separate DJ. This often works well, as the music is tailored around the live band sets.
What is included in your quote?
As part of our standard quote, we offer:
Either 2 x 1 Hour, or 3 x 40 minute sets
Full use of our 1000 Watt High Mackie PA system
FREE Playlist service provided
LED Lighting system
First Dance requests learnt free of charge (if applicable and with prior notice)
Our prices are inclusive of all travel and expenses
Can the band play beyond Midnight?
Absolutely! There is an additional hourly rate which Warble can provide upon your enquiry.
What power requirements do you require on stage?
At least two 13 amp sockets - preferably four. Please ensure generators and power supplies for marquees offer sufficient power (and are regularly topped up).
Can we bring our own iPod with our own playlists?
Of course. We have the facility to play audio/mp3s and an iPod base unit with the relevant connections.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
Yes, we are protected up to £10m and can provide certificates upon request.
Is your equipment PAT tested?
Yes, all our gear is regularly PAT tested, and we can provide certificates upon request.
Do you need a dressing room?
Yes, we need an area to change in, supplied with power points and seating.
The venue we are thinking of using has a sound limiter - is this a problem?
Not necessarily! We are a high energy band, and although we don't play at a dangerous level, sound limiters can vary and some are overly sensitive. Different venues have diferent sound limiters and settings, so it's best to get as many details about the limiter as possible (db limit level/does it cut the power/sensitivity levels). We are able to work with the majority of limiters and can offer many different options if the level is very low (electric drum kit/acoustic sets/live lounge style sets).
How far do you travel?
We are able to travel throughout the UK, Europe and the World to perform.
Can we use your PA for our speeches?
We are able to offer an extra 'early setup' option for a small cost, meaning you'll be able to use our PA system for your speeches. This often works out cheaper than buying or hiring a small system and will sounds miles better. We also supply an aux cable & iPad filled with over 10 hours of background music.
What happens if one of your band members is ill?
This can happen from time to time, or due to other touring commitments some members may not be able to perform. However we have permanent Deps who regularly play for us and know the set inside out. We only allow professional session muscians of a similar level to ourselves to play in the band. This is to make sure you still receive a professional and high energy performance!
