Dear Paul and Band,
There are no words to describe how fabulous our wedding was last Saturday- and your band played a huge part in that wonderful event! People are RAVING about you all- thank you so much for helping to create an unbelievable memory for us all. The evening will never be topped in our minds and hearts-
It was just the way I hoped it would be. I told you we were a dancing crowd- I am sure you saw how much everyone enjoyed it!!! I could have kept on dancing all night!!!!! The folks at Turner Hill said they have never seen a dance floor so packed- and I have the blisters to prove I did my part!!!!
Thank you-
Your band is fabulous!!!!
Cindy Lyons

Dear Paul -
We just wanted to write and thank you once again for absolutely slaying it at the wedding this weekend. You guys really made our wedding - we got SO MANY compliments on how great you were. Everyone was dancing all night long, and the dance floor was so packed that people started dancing on the carpet! You were so energetic, your pacing was great, and your playing and singing were top notch. Moreover, you did a great job of mixing songs to keep both our older and younger guests engaged all night long. Really - everyone had a blast and really enjoyed the experience. Plus, you were great to work with and super accommodating. And you did a wonderful job with our special request songs.
We really couldn't have asked for better. We would (and already have) recommend you guys100%, and will definitely send a similar testimonial to the booking agent.
Thanks again for a great party, and hope you guys enjoyed the wine! :)
Take care,
-Mike and Rachel Burn

Groove Authority was AMAZING! They did such a wonderful job!! I've had so many people tell me what a great band they are and I can't agree more. Paul was very professional, and so easy to work with. The music was well timed, and perfectly fit the vibe of the moment. I can't say enough great things about the band, and would be more than happy to be a reference for future brides interested in Groove Authority. You know how important the band was for us, and they were perfect.
Thanks for all your help!

We couldn't have been happier with all aspects along the way. Paul was extremely helpful in the planning process and took a genuine interest in how we wanted the night to look and the feel we were going for. He was helpful with the timeline, and flexible on the logistical issues we needed to work out.
The band as a whole were truly professional...not to mention a blast! We've heard from so many guests how awesome they were and we couldn't agree more. They played a wide range of music, which is what we were looking for, and they did all of it very well. We asked them to learn a couple of songs, including the one for our first dance, and they did a spectacular job. Having a great band plays a very important role in the night, and we think that Groove Authority was a perfect choice. From easy jazz during the cocktail reception (guitar and sax), to the slower stuff at the beginning, to the rock/hip-hop/dance/funk/blues as the night went on; they excelled.

I just wanted to take a moment to Thank you all again for doing such a fantastic job performing at our wedding. We have always had a great time seeing you play and now I can add that it was an absolute pleasure working with you. You were so professional and sincere through out the planning process. We really appreciated you reaching out to us as often as you did just to check in. I have to tell you that nearly all of our guests commented on how great you were and how they could not remember the last time they were at a function where they danced the whole time! The song selection couldn't have been more perfect and we loved how you interacted with the crowd while playing. You really got the party started and kept the party going! Thank you so much for making our special day an event to remember!
Milena & Billy Corr

We looked at several bands for our wedding and we loved Groove Authority both because of their talent, professionalism, and simply their vibe in general. Paul was easy to work with during the wedding planning process and thankfully, honored all of our requests. During the wedding they had everyone dancing, sounded great, and kept things running smoothly. We had so much going on that day and the band showed up on time, set up, and moved through the schedule so well without us having to worry at all, I was very impressed. They seemed to fit seamlessly into what turned out to be a perfect and amazing day. All of our guests have agreed that Groove Authority really couldn't have been better! All of our guests loved the band and almost everyone was up and dancing most of the night. We had an awesome reception and Groove Authority was a big part of it. Thanks so much,
Craig & Katey Penz

If you are looking for an energetic band to play at your wedding, look no further than Groove Authority! Paul and the band were prompt and professional but best of all....they PLAYED all of the music we wanted to hear and did not play anythng we did not want to hear! The guests had nothing but compliments on how great they sounded from the cocktail music to the end of the electrified reception! I highly recommend them for your wedding day...or any party!
Thanks again Paul and Groove Authority!
-Patrick & Christina McMenamy

Paul: I wanted to be sure and send this off while I was still euphoric about my daughter's wedding and the amazing job you and the band did at making the reception an even more memorable event. We were already riding high but, the energy and talent Groove Authority brought to the affair, raised us even higher. Everyone had a blast, much of which was owed to the fact that you totally get keeping people on their feet. Everytime I thought I was too tired to keep dancing, you would blast another number that made it impossible to leave the dance floor. We got comments like, "I usually hate weddings, but yours was so much fun" and "that band was fabulous--who were they and where did you find them?" and "if you close your eyes, you'd swear Alicia Keys was singing". 
I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone and I wish you and the band much success--you all deserve it!!!! Thanks again.

"Our guests were very impressed with Paul and Groove Authority. The band kept the crowd dancing all night to a great mix that ranged from 'Proud Mary' to 'Bust a Move.'"
-Caleb Cochran

Hey Guys, Down here in Maryland. I Hope it was worth it For You to come Down here and Play that Night and that you guys had just as Much fun as we ALL Did. I would Like to Express some of The Emails ( that I still get even Today ) About How Much Fun Everyone Had That Night. You guys Put on an Awesome Show and Performance That can't Be Matched. The Band was The Hit of The Party ,You had everybody Dancing ,Laughing and Having the Best Time The Have had in 25 to 30 Years. So Many of Us had not seen each other for so Long, it wasn't a Class Re-union But More of a Re-union of Friends and people that grew up together, even though a lot of us went to school together , the age ranged from about 30 to about 57 years old. The emails still keep coming in and they say " where did you find that Band " ? They can't believe you guys came all the way from The Boston area. They still rave about How Great The Band was and How Much fun They had. So ,I will End This By Saying THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR BEING A PART OF MAKING THIS (The Event of The Decade) HAPPEN AT THE GLENN DALE GET TOGETHER ;)

We just wanted to thank you and the other band members for doing a fantastic job performing at our wedding. We loved the music you played, the singing & dancing were awesome, and you all displayed so much fun happy wedding party energy. Also, thank you for all your help before the wedding, replying to all of my questions so promptly. Groove Authority really was groovy! Since the wedding, many more of our guests have commented to us about how awesome the band was. You all did such a good job and were so much fun to dance too. You are one of the reasons we had a fantastic day. Just wanted to thank you again.
Best wishes,
Heather & Michael Ching

BEST WEDDING EVER! We just wanted to thank you and the rest of your band again for a fantastic time. We have received so many compliments from family and friends about you and the evening of dancing. I got my all night long! It was so great and we had so much fun. I think about it all of the time!

Dear Paul and all of Groove Authority,
Filippo and I want to thank you with all our hearts for playing your hearts out at our marriage. You were simply the BEST. Outstanding in every way. How often does a wedding band get cheered so much that they do an encore? You are all so very talented, and we are honored that you sang and played for us at our wedding. Music makes a wedding reception, and you know that everyone has been talking about how great ours was because of the unbelievable band.
With much affection and many many thanks,
Lauren & Filippo

Hi Paul,
I just wanted to say thank you so much to you and the band. Your guys
were absolutely wonderful at our wedding at Saltwater Farm. Also, I
really appreciate the special touches you added for us with the
special acoustic guitar song for my walk down (Alex knew it right
away!) and our first dance. Thank you so much for making the event so
much fun!!
With many Thanks,
Jenny and Alex Morganti

Hi Paul,
Thanks so much for your performance last night. All day, we’ve been hearing from family and friends that they absolutely loved the band – not that they had to tell us! We had so much fun. Jason doesn’t dance and you had him out on the dance floor, so there’s no better testimonial than that.
Thanks again!
Shannon & Jason Clark

Hi Paul,
I just wanted to write and thank you again for the tremendous job that you and Groove Authority did while performing at our wedding. Being a referral, we had a good idea of what you guys could do, but I think you guys really just topped every one of our possible expectations. I am STILL getting numerous comments about how great you were from our guests, almost two and a half weeks later. Your song selection really got everyone (all ages) up and dancing all night long. You also personally made what can be a very stressful process seem almost seamless. I really enjoyed your great attention to detail and it was very easy to work with you overall. I think you guys hit it perfectly on exactly what it was that we were looking for. The entire night just flowed so well. We’ve both been to so many weddings where you can see that the band is just playing the “standard wedding songs”. Which is fine – But, for you guys to bust out everything from Michael Jackson (in his Jackson 5 days) high notes to rhymes on Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s – Nuthin But a G Thang. It was nothing short of spectacular. We will both not hesitate to recommend you to others for all occasions. Thank you so much for making our event one to remember!
-David and Sarah Jaffe

 Paul -
Thank you so much for making our wedding absolutely amazing. You guys were right on the spot, clearly felt the energy of the crowd, and got everyone dancing up a storm. I can't tell you how many people have come up to us afterwards and told you how amazing you guys were and that it was the best wedding they've ever been to.
Thanks again - it would be both Sarah and my pleasure to serve as a reference if you ever need one! Don't hesitate to let Sarah or I know!
-Jacob Forstater and Sarah Blumenthal

Paul and the members of Groove Authority are fantastic. I have listened to them play throughout NH and MA. I recommended them for the entertainment at our Saturday night Dinner and dance at our conference. When the planning committee heard the wide variety of music they performed, they were very impressed (not something that is easily done). Groove Authority is a very professional band, but also works well with the crowd (ours being around 500 massage therapy related people). They started the evening off with more contemporary music so we wouldn't lose the younger crowd. They also played a longer 1st set, again to keep more people at the dance and on the floor. It was a pleasure having them at our conference. So much so, we contracted with them to play again this year. An excellent band. You would be hard pressed to find better entertainment.

Hi Paul,
From the moment we started planning our wedding, we knew that we wanted to hire a band to entertain our guests. After receiving a rave review on Groove Authority from my sister, I viewed their website and could tell that they would be perfect! Their mix of classics and current pop hits provided the exact tone for our guests who all danced the night away! Paul was fantastic to work with and extremely accommodating! They learned our first dance song for us and truly made our reception the celebration we dreamt it to be. Thank you Groove Authority for making our wedding a party to remember! Thank you so much for making our wedding day so magical! I cannot thank you and the band enough for making our reception the best party of our lives! Thank you also for letting my dad sit in with you! It meant the world to him and to me! Thanks again for everything!
Whitney Ashe

 Hi Paul,
Just a note of thanks to you and the band for performing at Whitney’s and Jason’s wedding last weekend. You guys did a tremendous job in providing the right music at the right time. Groove Authority was an excellent choice. I also appreciated the opportunity to sit in with the band, it had been about 5 years since I had played and it was a great experience.
Keep up the good work. I hope to hear the band sometime in the future.
