Groove Factory did an amazing job for my 50th birthday celebration. Their 80s themed Freeze Frame band was a hit with my guests. Everyone asking me, “where did you get this band?” The female lead singer has an incredible voice. Having them play at my party made my birthday!!!

FANTASTIC! AMAZING! PERFECT! Freeze Frame played at my wedding on October 3rd and they rocked it! They got the party up on their feet the entire time; people danced and sang and had a fabulous time. Mark is very professional, and responds to emails or phone calls immediately. Mark also took on the extra role […]

Hired Joe to be the DJ for our holiday party and he was amazing.  He offered to let our employees provide him with songs to download so he could play their favorite music.  He was very affordable and very professional.

Joe and the Groove Factory exceeded my expectations! They were prompt, professional, knew how to play according to the crowd, and excellent showmanship. I will be using Groove Factory in the future for my events as I produce 100’s each year and am always looking for professional and excellent talent!

Groove Factory played my company user conference at the Omni San Diego and everyone could not have been more pleased with everything from the pre-show contracting/planning and coordination to the presentation itself. All members of the band are very high-energy and really try to engage the crowd with their showmanship and great musical talent. The […]

Groove Factory did an AMAZING job at our event. They were so accommodating and patient as changes were made throughout the nights timeline. Music was perfect and I can’t decide who my favorite singer was. They were all so friendly and lively. Couldn’t have had a better night. Thank you to the band for making […]

WOW! I don’t know how to do Freeze Frame’s performance at my wedding justice! THEY ROCKED THE BAY! All of my guests were on the dance floor all night! Mark was INCREDIBLY responsive and accommodating to all requests. They learned a new song for our first dance and were flexible to the changes throughout the […]

Freeze Frame was unbelievably awesome! We wished we could’ve had the room longer so they could’ve played a few more songs. I’ve been to more than a few weddings and have yet to hear any band as good as they were, and I’m not just saying that because I was the groom. I want to […]

This is a review for a wedding gig with 170 guests in Beverly Hills that the band was hired for.  They were AMAZING! Here are the PROS: 1) Paul the MC is energetic and fluid on the mic.  He followed our timeline and transitioned from one activity to the next effortlessly.  It’s obvious that he […]


We used Groove Factory for our wedding at Vellano Country Club and it was nothing short of a great experience. We used the DJ service and it was very smooth from start to finish. Some DJ services are awkward and make the wedding weird and stop randomly. Nope, not these guys. We had a great […]
