Neomi Harrison-smith | Wedding , 2020

Mitch and the band did an absolutely amazing job. EVERYONE was up dancing all night long. We can’t thank you enough! To work with you were a dream as well. You were like ninjas setting up, and lovely to all our guests. Even let me have a go on the mic when I really shouldn’t have! We just want to do it all over again. Thank you so much!

Clare Alexandra | Wedding , 2019

Myself and my husband would just like to say a massive thank you to the band Groove Manuva for coming and playing at our evening wedding party. This band were fantastic. The mix of music was brilliant and by the end of the evening really had people up and dancing. We can't thank you enough. They also kept in contact prior to the event and answered any questions that we had. So once again thank you and we would highly recommend.

Hollie Harris | Wedding , 2019

The band played our wedding in July and were absolutely brilliant! The dance floor was packed and the set list was just what we wanted. We had so many comments from guests on the day and since about how fantastic they were. We looked at so many bands but after seeing Groove Manuva YouTube videos and speaking to Mitch, we had no hesitation in booking them. They arrived on time and were very friendly and professional. Also, we’d highly recommend the five-piece band - the saxophonist was fantastic and having two great vocalists made the sets even better. Thanks to Mitch and the band for making the evening so memorable!

Steven Reed | Wedding , 2019

This band is amazing!!! We hired Groove Manuva for our wedding and they just made the evening reception rock. Their cover of "Happy" by Bruce Springsteen for our first dance was so magical and a perfect moment for myself and my husband. They went on to do two sets which had loads of people up dancing. All through the night our guests would come and tell us how brilliant the band were and ask where we found them as they were that good!. At the end of the night they not only did one encore but two! I cannot praise the band enough, from their choice of music to the way they interacted with the guests and performed.They certainly added to our amazing day and made it even more special . Thank you so much for making our wedding day so memorable.

Bexs Jackson | Wedding , 2019

I looked at hundreds of local bands and their YouTube sets before deciding to contact Groove Manuva because they looked like they created a great night. We couldn't have had a better band - they were amazing. From the first moment I spoke to Mitch he was accommodating, understanding and flexible to some of our unique circumstances. On the night the band members were fantastic and REALLY understanding of the dinner overrunning. They had everything set up in super quick time, had music to take us through dinner and had a couldn't do enough for us attitude. Most importantly though - they were bloomin' good! EVERYONE hit the dance floor for most of the night and the band created a fabulous atmosphere with a set that got everyone up and bouncing! If you're thinking about booking them - don't think - just do it - you won't regret it!

Claire Morley-Jones | Event, 2019

We can’t thank Groove Manuva enough for the music at our wedding. They were absolutely amazing and everybody kept coming up to us for their details and asking how we found them. Everyone was up dancing for the whole set. They were such lovely guys, so friendly and professional and even played a last minute special request. I would’ve paid to see them in concert they were so amazing! Thanks guys!

Judith Holder | Wedding, 2019

We booked Groove Manuva as a 7 peice band for our joint 60th birthday party last Saturday March 2nd and they were fantastic! The dance floor was full of our friends and family having a wonderful evening responding to the fabulous music. Mitch and the band are lovely people as well as excellent musicians - we can highly recommend them!

Jane Woodhead | Event, 2019

Booked the 6 piece for my wedding in December and two of them for a set in the day. They were amazing. They had everyone up dancing all night and not the usual cheesy wedding band! Also, lovely to deal directly with the band so you know exactly who your money is going to! I will definitely be recommending them to friends and family

Lucie Fletcher | Wedding, 2019

We booked Groove Manuva for our wedding back in June, and it was so refreshing to deal directly with a band! Mitch was really friendly, helpful and responsive from the beginning. We booked quite late in the day (our engagement to wedding process was only 5 months long!) but Groove Manuva certainly delivered on the night, playing a number of songs we’d specially requested, Reef: Place Your Hands, complete with a couple of lyrics changes so it became first dance material :) Red hot chilli peppers: Can’t Stop, which everybody loved. And not forgetting B52s: Love Shack which our friend and female vocalist got involved with, thank you! The dance floor was full all night, with something for everyone, from grandparents to work colleagues, to friends on space hoppers. We’ve had so many compliments since, so thank you Groove Manuva for your fantastic music! May you have a joyful, gig-filled 2019! X

Jessica Cooper Bristol | Wedding, 2019

The dance floor was bouncing! We booked Groove Manuva for our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made about the most perfect day of our lives. From the start Mitch was wonderful, so friendly, happy to play our first dance and do the best man’s favourite song in the second set. They arrived early, set up really subtly so as not to disturb our day and just waited out of the way until we were ready for them. The sound check sounded amazing.... we knew we were in for a real treat! And we weren’t wrong. From the first song the dance floor was full and the band really engaged with us and our guests. Having a laugh, playing and singing their socks off and breaking drumsticks in the process � We’re not going to get married again but I’m now planning my 40th and I already know who I’m going to use. It’s in two years Mitch so I’ll book you soon �

Lucy and Gez | Wedding, 2018

Groove Manuva played at our evening reception on the 2nd of June and they were amazing! From the first contact with them nothing was a trouble from learning how to play our choice of first dance to our children pestering them throughout the evening and even on their break between sets. Couldn't fault them one bit. Everyone was up dancing all night and was full of compliments for them. I would deffo reccommend and if we were to do our day again we wouldn't hesitate to re-book yourselves. Thankyou so much to everyone involved you guys are fab!

Faye and Tom | Wedding, 2018

We were thrilled to have the band play at our evening wedding reception last week. From start to finish Mitch was so helpful over email, the whole process was made so easy, communication was excellent. On the day itself, we were so impressed with the setup, it looked amazing. The sets were fantastic and everyone was dancing from the start, we both absolutely loved it. Really professional and a lovely group of people too. Couldn't rate more highly - book this band, you won't be disappointed! Thanks so much again - the perfect end to our special day.

Naomi and Tom | Wedding, 2018

We got married in the Lake District on the 31st March 2018. What can I say? Mitch and the band were absolutely fantastic, with both the acoustic set in the afternoon and then the evening with the band. Getting back to me with the copious amount of emails I sent to Mitch nothing was to much, everyone commented how brilliant the band were and got people up on the dancefloor! A guest wants to use them at his hotel for an event! Highly recommend, highly profecially and lovely bunch. Thank you :)

Amy and Chris | Wedding, 2018

My wife and I had this band play at our wedding. We could not fault them at all, they are an absolutely fantastic band and completely made the night for us and our guests. Also, at our request they learnt a brand new song to play for our first dance! I know it's been a couple of years now but Thank thanks so much guys for the top entertainment, keep up the good work! Dan and Bec, Leeds.

Dan and Bec | Wedding, 2018

We booked Groove Manuva for our wedding in June after listening to some sample songs online and they were absolutely brilliant. From the moment they started performing they had everybody up on the dance floor until the end of the night! Wedding planning can be very stressful but they were so easy to communicate with and nothing was too much trouble! We have had so many compliments since the wedding and we would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

Becki Harris | Wedding, 2017

Amazing band who played at the St Gemma's Hospice Winter Ball on Saturday. Everyone was up dancing and commenting how good they were. Would definitely recommend!

Groove Manuva played at the party I went to on Saturday evening. From the first strum they had people on the dance floor!! Every song was spot on and the atmosphere was amazing. I would totally recommend the band and hope to see them again sometime in the future.

Beth and Andy | Wedding, 2017

We had Groove Manuva for my husband's 40th Birthday last weekend after having booked them for my own 40th back in September. They were absolutely amazing both times - the guests loved them judging by the continuously packed dance floor and the fact many asked about how we found them. They created the very best atmosphere and made it a memorable and special night!

Julie | Party, 2017

Gemma and Rob | Wedding, 2017

What a fantastic band! Made our night and wedding day the best, they were so helpful through the whole process of song choice and playlists, even managing to playing our special song at short notice (we had issues choosing�). From the duet playing as we arrived to the main event I cannot fault them in the slightest, they succeeded in making our evening extra special and very enjoyable. I would highly recommend them for any function you are holding. Mitch and the band were very professional in all aspects of their performance and communication was easy. Thank you Groove Manuva!

Rob and Jayne | Wedding, 2017

We have booked Groove Manuva 3 times now for our annual Christmas Party & would highly recommend. Absolutely amazing. We will be booking again for next year :)

SSP Worldwide | Event, 2016

This was the 3rd time we have used Groove Manuva and every time they have delivered exactly what we have asked for. You couldn't ask for a more professional approach. They have provided great entertainment for two corporate Christmas functions, for 120 people and an NSPCC Charity Ball, for 300. And each time the guests have said to me how much they enjoyed the show & the evening. Groove Manuva play a great mix of music and every song is up-beat and guaranteed to get people on the dancefloor. I would have no problem recommending them to anybody.

Bellway Homes | Event, 2016

We recently booked Groove Manuva for our foster carers ball. The band were fantastic, very talented and kept everyone entertained. They arrived in plenty of time to set up and were very professional. We would have no hesitation in recommending them and hope to book them again in the future!

East Riding of Yorkshire Council | Event, 2016

Groove Manuva played at our wedding and were absolutely fantastic! People danced the whole night long and we received lots of great comments and sure will receive more bookings from our guests in the future too! Couldn't recommend more!!

Kieron and Hannah | Wedding, 2016

Hey guys just want to say a massive thank you for last night you were absolutely brilliant we didn't want it to end. You had the dance floor packed all night and seeing Katies dad with his tie on his head rockin out to Bruce Springsteen was awsome 🙂 thanks again Martin & Katie xxx

Martin and Katie | Wedding, 2016

Thanks so much for playing at our wedding, you guys were brilliant! Despite the large venue, the sound really filled it. You kept people on the dancefloor throughout with your energy and great playing! Everyone we talked to said how good you were, including the reception organisers! Thanks for helping to make our day special :)

Daniel and Rachel | Wedding, 2016

Huge thanks to Groove Manuva for helping to make our wedding day awesome! They delivered exactly what we wanted and stayed in regular contact in the run up to the day. Hardly a space left on the dance floor all night. Funky, friendly and professional!

Jon and Helen | Wedding, 2016

Thank you for a fantastic night of music and dancing for our wedding on Saturday!! We had a brilliant night and our guests have commented how good the band were! Thank you again, Alison and Tom 💃🎤 xx

Alison and Tom | Wedding, 2016

Thank you so much for playing at our charity event. We had nearly 200 people attending, raised £1,000 and everyone had a brilliant night - there were lots of sore feet the next morning from all the dancing! Mitch was great in the run up to the event, keeping us well informed and taking time to understand the theme of the evening so that the band delivered exactly what we wanted, and more! Would definitely recommend these guys, thanks again.

Andy | Charity Event, 2015

We hired Groove Manuva for our summer Wedding, and were very impressed with not only the bands performance and energy, but also with their overall friendliness towards ourselves and our guests. The music was spot on, and certainly made all our guests want to dance the night away. They helped make the evening of our wedding one to remember. Would definitely recommend this band to anyone looking for a fun & lively night.

Sue and Sam | Wedding, 2015

We had Groove Manuva recommended to us for our wedding day and we certainly weren't disappointed. The dancefloor was full immediately and their range of songs (both current and classics) we're popular across all the ages of our guests (including my 87 year old Gran who I found on the dancefloor at midnight going strong to Mr Brightside!). They really got the evening going when they kicked off the first set and they we're that good that I (the bride) spent the whole of the first set on the dancefloor instead of working the room!

Emma and Richard | Wedding, 2015

Groove Manuva were a huge hit at our wedding and fit into our rustic theme perfectly! They played Ed Sheeran "Thinking Out Loud" for our first dance and absolutely nailed it, everyone thought it was awesome and we loved every second. All of the band members were so lovely and chilled, it was one less thing to have to organise on the day as they just got on with setting up and sorting themselves out. I can't thank them enough for putting the perfect end to a perfect day! Thanks Groove Manuva! Sal n Maz xxx

Sally and Maz | Wedding, 2015

We had such an amazing time - thank you to you and the rest of your band for making our evening so good! The music and songs you did were great and everyone enjoyed themselves! Thanks too for being so nice to deal with from start to finish - nothing was too much trouble both in pre-arrangements and on the night. You were a pleasure to have at our wedding and we will certainly be recommending you to others.

Alex and Shaun | Wedding, 2015

We took a bit of a risk booking Groove Manuva having not seen them live and only listened to clips online. It was the best risk I've ever taken. If you think they sound good via audio or video clips then I can assure you they're 10 times better live. The band were extremely accommodating and well managed. Mitch was excellent in answering all questions we had prior to the event. From first song to last the band were amazing, even the music they provide during the interval and as they pack up was perfect. The mix of songs from the set list was perfect, the dance floor was full all night and people were chanting for more at the end. It made a perfect day even more special. We would recommend them to anyone, you will not be disappointed. Thanks guys, you were amazing.

David and Andrea | Wedding, 2015

Groove Manuva played at our company Christmas party and were a BIG hit! I have never seen so many people up and dancing for the whole duration of a set and our guys just did not sit down! The whole team were lovely and as an events organiser, can say it was a complete pleasure to work with them. They made my job so much easier and I have received such great feedback from a number of colleagues. It is safe to say that I will be booking them for our next event and recommending them to anyone and everyone! Thanks for making our party so much fun!

Rachel | Corporate event, 2014

The band were fantastic! They played at our wedding in October and all our guests loved them. They played a great selection of songs and got everyone on the dance floor. They were highly professional and accommodated our request for a early set up. I would highly recommend this band!

Emily and John | Wedding 2014

If you're like us, you'll like to see or have experienced something first hand before you book. We had only listened to Groove Manuva through their website but they sounded great and the experience of each member won us over, so we booked them for our wedding last week. We and our 100 or so guests, were definitely NOT disappointed! Everyone was still talking about how good the band had been at breakfast the next morning...Safe to say we had a full dance floor for both one hour sets. Having both male and female vocalists makes them even more versatile. During the break and after the second set, the band continued the music through their laptop. Everyone mixed really well with our guests and were a pleasure to have with us on the day. No unrealistic requests, just genuine people who really enjoy what they do, and they sure do it well.

Sarah and Stuart | Wedding, 2014

Just like to say the the whole office was buzzing on Monday morning after our party & your performance at our Christmas party on Friday night, no one person had a bad thing to say about you guys, the whole night was awesome and the music you provided was a perfect compliment to the evening, I've never seen the dance floor so packed

Irfan | Corporate event, 2014

From first enquiry to last encore Groove Manuva were fantastic! Friendly, helpful and professional they helped to round off our day perfectly, we've been to a lot of weddings but have rarely seen so many guests up and dancing. Their set list provides a great mix so there's something for everyone to enjoy with every song brilliantly performed, including "Everything" by Michael Bublé which they learnt specially for our first dance. We can't thank them enough for helping to make our day perfect!

Chris and Emma | Wedding, 2014

Thank you so much to the whole band for the awesome job you did at our wedding. The dance floor was full all night long and guests of all ages absolutely loved the choice of songs!!! Groove Manuva were everything we hoped for and so much more and we've had nothing but compliments from the guests about the band choice.

Dan and Louise | Wedding, 2014

Groove Manuva are a staggeringly good band and entertained our wedding guests thoroughly throughout the night. Their energy radiated into the room and the compliments given to them from those in attendance was non-stop. A fantastic and warm group of people - a testament to their profession..

Georgina and Craig | Wedding, 2014

David and I just want to extend our thanks to you and the rest of the band for playing at our wedding on 11th of May. You were absolutely brilliant and many people complimented us on the choice of the band!! Thanks for learning 'Perfect Day' for the first dance. You guys did help to make it our perfect day (apologies for the cheesy comment but I couldn't help myself)! best wishes

Sarah and David | Wedding, 2013

Hi everyone! Me and Steve just got back from Honeymoon and wanted to drop you a message to say thanks so much for being so 'groovy' at our wedding. We loved every minute of it and so did everyone we spoke to about it! You are amazing!

Sarah and Steve | Wedding, 2013

Groove Manuva played at our wedding party and were excellent. They created a fantastic atmosphere and a year on the guests still rave about their renditions of Crazy In Love and Jungle Book. A testimont to their quality.

Rachel and Nick | Wedding, 2012

Just wanted to pass a note of thanks for doing the charity do in July, we have raised over £1,500 for MacMillan and you played a massive part in helping reach that total. You changed the night from being a charity night into a party which is what I wanted. Everyone has passed on messages of how good and impressed they where and I'm so glad you are coming again next year. Great song choices for all ages and just simply a great sound!

Paul | Charity event, 2012
