They are equipped with professional sound and lighting gear to meet the highest standard. Specializing in weddings and corporate events, they will enhance your theme and create a mood that will make the night unforgettable.
Most of all, Groove Collection knows how to get people dancing- and keep them dancing. Carefully crafted medleys keep the music going, leaving no dead time in between songs where most bands lose the crowd. Their energy on stage is contagious, continuous, and captivating. You will not be disappointed.
Groove Collection will learn a song request not on our list (as long as it is within the singer's range/style and is submitted one month prior to event). Groove Collection can also accomodate their music to create the precise mood you are seeking. If you would like a more mellow feel during dinner, and then more upbeat, dance music during the remainder of the evening, we will work closely with you to create exactly what you want. Groove Collection also provides DJing during all breaks (and will tailor the set list to provide only the music you prefer). Also, feel free to use Groove Collection to MC your event. They are fully suited with lights and equipment to set the perfect mood for your party.

*****"I hired Groove Collection to perform at my daughter's wedding on July 16, 2011. In one word… Incredible… okay, maybe two words… Incredible and Impressive!
I found them on-line… no prior association… no reference from anyone… just a feeling this was our band! Let me say… I am thrilled that I listened to my instincts! Matt Call was true to his word from beginning to end, and Groove Collection far exceeded our expectations for pre-ceremony, ceremony, and reception music! He met with us months before the wedding at our venue in Knoxville, Tennessee. My first impression was how professional he was… well-dressed, polite, kind and very accommodating! He was eager to work with us on a very untraditional arrangement for the wedding processional, and the band executed the arrangement flawlessly… my daughter and her husband were amazed with their vocals! In fact, everyone was amazed with their vocals… amazed with their talent!
I recommend Groove Collection with enthusiasm! In fact, they were a major hit with our guests and a major influence on the success of the wedding! All night, guests ages 20-70 were saying, "Where did you find this band? They are wonderful! They are great! They are the best we have heard!" My response is Bravo… thank you… job well done!
Again, without reservation, I can confidently recommend Groove Collection as a solid, reliable, high-quality band for any event large or small… They Will Not Disappoint!"
Suzanne Dickey, mother of the bride
*****"Groove Collection did an amazing job with our wedding and I would fully recommend them to anyone looking for a fun, energetic and talented band to entertain their guests. My wife and I are picky people and we've both been close to music in some form or another for most of our lives. So when it came time to pick the wedding band, it was actually more stressful than most of the other 18 million decisions that go into throwing a wedding. However, we ultimately decided on the Groove Collection after meeting Leslie, the band manager. It was clear to us that they were willing to do whatever was needed to ensure that the wedding reception we had in our heads become a reality… and they didn't disappoint.
Matt (the lead singer) and the band worked with us in the months leading up to the wedding to determine the song list and also to insert a few songs we selected into their playlist. That really meant a lot to us and I doubt you'll find any other band willing to learn new songs just for your wedding. On top of that, the band coordinated all of the logistics directly with the event coordinator and the venue so it was completely hands-off for us when it came our wedding day. It isn't until after the wedding is over that you realize how important it is to be able to trust that the band has all of their bases covered.
At the actual reception, it became clear that the decision to hire the Groove Collection was the perfect choice.
During the dinner, they kept things appropriately low-key and provided a tasteful backdrop to guests mingling and eating. The band then delivered a moving rendition of Al Green as we danced our first dance then immediately launched into party mode and filled up the floor. They amazingly kept that pace and energy level well into the night... our guests were having so much fun that we opted to extend the reception. The band had people dancing that I had never seen dance in the 25+ years that I've known them (which is a good thing).
At the end of the day, I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience working with Groove Collection. They're professional, dependable, friendly and above all a really great band. We continue to get compliments on our reception several months after the fact. I'm completely happy with our choice and can't recommend them enough."
-Eric Webb (Wedding at The Venue, Asheville, NC)
*****"Groove Collection was TERRIFIC! I received nothing but positive feedback on their performance. The medical director for our program was so impressed that he sent an e-mail to all of our physicians stating he hoped I could get the same band for next year for all of those that missed out.
Many of the guests wanted contact information about Groove Collection and I was more than happy to share with them. Please tell them thanks again for a wonderful night."
-Lindsay Hammitt (Corporate Function, Wellmont CVA Heart Institute)
*****"Groove Collection is, by far, the most talented band in Western North Carolina! I have heard a lot of event bands play, and no one even comes close to the amount of talent and energy these guys have. I highly recommend them! They are professional and fun. Their manager, Leslie Call, is easy to work with and keeps everything organized and running smoothly."
-Emily Lee (New Years Eve party at "The Loom")
*****"Thank you so much for all of your hard work and for helping us celebrate our marriage with our friends and families. The music was absolutely fantastic! I am so glad I found you guys (and Leslie!) online. Y'all are so talented and I am so glad everyone got to hear you play!"
-Harriet Johnston (Wedding at "Twigs")
*****"Groove Collection was FABULOUS! We had so many people tell us that they loved the band from my daughter's reception...'Who are they? Where did you find them? Do they live here?' It was a total success! We danced and danced and danced and had so much fun! The bride and groom loved it! It was wonderful working with Leslie and Matt. The music was just delightful! Thank you so much! I would highly recommend Groove Collection for any event!"
-Eva Evans (Wedding at "The Manor House in the Oaks")
*****"Groove Collection was AMAZING! They were so great, amazing, perfect, fun, everything I could ever want or imagine!! Everyone had a blast and loved them!! Please pass on my gratitude! They will be getting more phone calls for weddings from folks at our reception!"
-Elizabeth Smith (Wedding at "The Inn at Half Mile Farm")

-Leslie Roseboro (Corporate Meeting at "The Grove Park Inn")
*****"Thank you and the guys for everything. The band is absolutely amazing, and I received tons of compliments on their behalf. Til next time!"
-Tina Block (Wedding Reception at "Charlotte City Club")
*****"Just wanted to say that the band was really really really good. Our guests are still complimenting me on them, so pass it on to the guys. Also, it was a very cool gesture on their part to play "Thank You Too" by My Morning Jacket. Kristen and I can't stop listening to that song. Again thanks for all your help!"
-Dave LaRusse (Wedding Reception at "Asheville Renaissance Hotel")
*****"I just wanted to say thank you to you and the band for all your help and for making our wedding such a wonderful, fun night. We had so many compliments on the band and wanted to pass on the thanks!! We had a wonderful time, thanks so much for helping us make it such a fun wedding!!"
-Courtney Dodd (Wedding Reception at "Crest Pavilion")
*****"Groove Collection was unbelievable! I cannot say enough about the band and their stellar performance. More than any other detail of the entire weekend, all our guests were most impressed by the music. We've had SO many people comment on how awesome they were. The next night we went back to the Orange Peel for a concert and the sound guy was going on and on about them too! All around, they were perfect. We have a video of the last song with all of our friends jumping up on stage that we will definitely send you guys. Thanks again for everything you've done. You guys went above and beyond and made our wedding exactly what we were hoping for."
-Elizabeth and Nod (Wedding Reception at "The Orange Peel")
*****"I wanted to write you tell you all thank you so much! We were so impressed with Matt and the rest of the band. We've had so many compliments during and after the reception. I know you all will be getting at least one gig out of it all and we've had about three other people ask us for your information. My mom even enjoyed them and she doesn't enjoy ANYTHING lol Tell them thank you so much for Brian and I. Thank you so much again, great performance!"
-Katy Gillane (Wedding Reception at "Madren Center at Clemson University")
*****"Awesome - pure awesome. This was probably the best band yet - I have seen at a wedding. I will tell you - your band was underpriced for what was delivered.... I told Matt that though. I think the Testimonials are key because we got hit by all of these bands with old men, with ponytails, with flashy tuxedos that we just did not want. The other cool part about you and Matt is - we never met, a few phone conversations, but we never met and all the other vendors were like blah blah blah we have to meet, more time. more time - by the end of it one vendor told me just let the vendors do their job and trust them. Well with your band I just let it go, get the first song right, and you guys run the show and Matt completely delivered!!!!!!! Great Job! Love you all - if you need a great testimonial send them my way.... as always underpromise and overdeliver!"
-Russ Wagner (Wedding Reception at "Walker Hall")
*****"The band was fantastic. We loved them!! I only have great things to say about them."
-Carla Moss (Wedding Reception at "The Barn at Tanglewood")
*****"Groove Collection did a PHENOMENAL job last night. Everyone complimented us on our band selection!"
-Betty and Jacob Warren (Wedding Reception at "Asheville Renaissance Hotel")
*****"Groove Collection did a great job. I appreciated the wide diversity of music that they played, as well as the Shag! Everyone in attendance had a great time."
-Tara Bland (New Year's Eve Party at "Lake Hickory Country Club")
