Customer Testimonials

I took a leap of faith and booked Groove Factory to play my 50th birthday party sight unseen.  Best decision I’ve ever made!  Joe was so responsive and amazing to work with, and all the band members are so talented…they rocked the house.  My friends and family are still raving about them. If you want to keep your guests engaged, entertained, and on the dance floor, you’ve got to hire Groove Factory!

From our first meeting until the actual performance, the band was nothing but professional. We loved having them perform at our wedding. Many guests could not stop rating about how much fun they had and how good the band was. They kept the seats empty all night long with their great music!

Joe was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is patient, understanding, and overall, an upstanding gentleman. We didn’t have the best location for the band or were we throroughly planned but he made it work and it worked well. He was flexible for the night of the event and he and his band did so with a smile. The band mates were also a blast to be around. They were friendly and blended well with the guests. If I have another wedding, I’d book them again. I’m finding myself looking for reasons to book with Joe again. You will not regret booking with these guys.

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!!!

I had the opportunity to work with Joe and Groove Factory through my business Serendipity Events. They played for a wedding reception this summer for one of our couples and I was very impressed with the whole evening. Joe was great to work with, easy to communicate with, and made the process very simple. The entire band was great, was able to adapt to timeline changes, and kept everyone on the dance floor. Great group of performers!

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 infusion of Karaoke into their regular rotation of music is seamless and whenever a Karaoke singer comes onstage, they are instantly made to feel comfortable and a real “part of the band” (which makes for a wonderful experience). I highly recommended this Groove Factory!!!

I hired Joe and the Groove Factory based on reviews for my husbands birthday. This band is fantastic! The music never stopped and the guests never stopped dancing. This was a party no one will forget! Thanks Groove Factory!

Everyone at the party raved about this band. They had you dancing from start to finish. All night long people were coming up to me to ask where I found them.They surpassed all the other bands I have hired in the past. What a great party and the band had a lot to do with it.

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.

We decided to have a huge birthday celebration for my Mom who has Alzheimer’s given the fact that she loves to dance. We hired this exceptional band and we were impressed. Even from the beginning, communication was prompt and clear. They were very accommodating and flexible with your budget. They were at the venue on time for the set up. The music was well chosen. Their performance was superb and certainly made our noon event alive. The younger guests danced all afternoon while the oldies enjoyed just sitting and watching them perform. It was like getting a free concert. And most of all, my 86 year old Mom enjoyed the music and the dancing.  I am so grateful and happy for coming across  this band during our party planning stage coz it certainly made a difference to our event. Having a great live band brought our party to a brand new level!!!  Awesome vocalists, guitar players, keyboards and drums!! Thank you Groove Factory!! We will definitely use you again. Our band of choice from now on!

We had a great time in my mom’s party thanks to Grove Factory. They are very good played all the music we love . The guest are very impressed I’m very happy we made the right choice for my mom’s entertainment . ??????

The Groove played for our annual charity fundraiser, they were awesome! Everyone was dancing, including the dignitaries 🙂 And they were kind enough to keep playing for the “after party” … #leftnoregrets

Groove factory absolutely rocked our community end of Summer concert!

Joe was such a pleasure to work with, we organized all the details leading up to the event well ahead of time. And he was so accommodating even when we had to make some last-minute adjustments to equipment drop off and stage set up.

The band  themselves were such a a fantastic group of equally talented & energetic performers.

Love them & definitely recommend you to book them for your upcoming show, event or party!!

GREAT wedding band, both in sound and value. The band comes with a photo booth, uplighting, and sound equipment. I had compliments from all of my guests on how great the music sounded and how fun they were to watch perform. If you have a specific song that you want to hear, the band will learn it to play at your event.

We had the Groove Factory play at our birthday party and they were AMAZING.  Joe was very responsive and took the time to come out to our house to talk about layout of the band in advance of our party. On the day of the party, they showed up, set up perfectly and were ready to go right on the schedule we requested. The music selection process was easy and they knocked it out of the park on the performance.  Had the majority of people dancing all night which I did not think would happen. Total professionals and they really made the party a success.  Would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone.

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 this an amazing birthday party!

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 wedding with these guys and appreciate everything they provided for us!! Thank you so much!!!

The band delivered! Joe and his band were professional and accommodating. We experienced everything they had to offer – Freeze Frame with their 80’s music, and then had fun with their live karaoke, and finally we also were entertained by Groove Factory, which is their all variety music. It was fabulous and our guests really enjoyed the entertainment!

Groove Factory performed at my wedding in Aliso Viejo Country Club.  They did a special set for us before we booked so we could audition them, and they worked with us before the wedding to make it SO special!  They did the ceremony music – acoustic guitar and singer and he learned a song for it!  Our guests keep telling us how great the band was, and how much fun they had!  Another couple at our wedding may use them for their wedding, they liked them so much.  I did a serenade for my husband, and Groove Factory played live for that for me 🙂  They also provided the photobooth, which the guests loved.  Thank you Groove!!!

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 more than exceeded my expectations! This is the first time I have found a band without using a personal referral and I am glad I chose Groove Factory! I do 100’s of events each year in multiple cities and will most certainty be utilizing their services again. Thanks again Joe!

Groove Factory played at our wedding and they were fantastic from start to finish! Leading up to the event, Joe was very professional and on top of all the details. At the wedding, they emcee’d flawlessly, but most importantly, the band was amazing!  They have a wide range of songs to choose from, but are also great performers and can see what works and adjust based on the crowd. Very happy we went with them and would definitely recommend to others!

We had Groove Factory play for our wedding in La Jolla a couple of weeks ago and they were awesome!! Joe was our contact person and he was extremely helpful and fun to work with.
Our guests danced all night and we got tons of compliments on the music. They definitely know how to get the party started and keep it going all night long.

This group is as cool as they Get.  I had an 80’s theme party for mine and my husbands 50th birthday/ fundraiser and they came all dressed in costume and rocked the party.  My guests continuously told me this band is amazing.  They had a huge selection of songs and even let me get up on stage with them and be the lead singer to the songs of my choice..
I would recommend them to anyone looking to have a lively party with great 80’s music.
Thank you to this Band for the Best most memorable birthday we ever had.!!
Anna from La Costa

165 person wedding in La Jolla CA on 4/18/15. We received nothing but compliments from our guests.

A great experience from start to finish. We had an amazing experience with the band. Joe was very helpful and responsive during the planning process, their website made it easy to add songs to our playlist and our do not play list.

I recommend seeing them play beforehand, we were sold after 2 songs. Great energy and extremely professional, they can nail songs from the 80’s to the present. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a great wedding band in so cal.

Groove Factory was a dream to work with from beginning to end. They answered all of our questions in a timely manor. They not only rocked every song that was on their playlist, but they also learned songs for my husband to sing. They were entertainment from beginning to end. Joe our MC was wonderful to work with prior to our wedding and made sure to keep everything running just as I wanted the day of. It was by far the best entertainment at any wedding that we have ever been to. They were also so much fun when we saw them in October prior to booking them.

Groove Factory was amazing! We hired them for our wedding and we had so many guests come up to us after and rave about the band. They did such a great job of getting the crowd up and dancing and they were a big part of why our wedding was such a success! We hadn’t seen them play live prior to booking them but it was the best decision we ever made. They were so accommodating to any requests and were always available to answer our questions and for phone calls i would not hesitate to recommend them to any of my friends and I hope my enthusiasm is coming through in this review because they were that good!! Thank you so much for making our night so special!!

This band is AMAZING, both in the music arena and professional business arena. We saw them play at The Grand Del Mar and WOW, what fun! Everyone of all ages was on the dance shakin’ booties so we hired them for our wedding at The Parker in Palm Springs. They are very timely and professional, just delightfully easy to work with. We could not have wished for better. They were a showcase of our wedding and we could not have been more impressed.They are flawless and SO MUCH FUN!!! Our guests are still talking about how fun and full of energy the band was. I cannot give enough stars or words to describe Groove Factory, just A CLASS ACT all around!

The Grove Factory provided amazing entertainment, MC, DJ and lighting services for our client. We were truly impressed with their level of service, professionalism and ease of communication. I would recommend them to any of my clients in the future who are looking for live performers. Thank you so much for helping us make this event a memorable celebration for our client and their guests!

The band played our company’s employee party. They got everyone dancing and not only that they did live band karaoke! I can’t really sing, but they made it so easy and inviting to join them on stage. This is a band that entertains.

Paul was most helpful before and during the event. He walked thru every aspect of our party.

They also provided a photo booth with crazy hats and wigs that was a big hit with our guests and you get to keep the photos to remember the party.
Can’t recommend them enough. If you want your party to go off these are the guys for you.

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 has tons of experience with wedding receptions.  He’s also professional and will check in with you about questions he has.
2) Each band member is very talented.  They do great mash-ups.  You need to hire them all.
3) Groove Factory will naturally incorporate the bride and groom into their set.  I am terrified to sing, but they’re professionals and know how to make you feel comfortable.

Here is Added Value beyond live music:
4) Do you like singing?  Karaoke is an option that they offer.  This is also fun for your guests who enjoy singing.
5) They do up-lightening.  The lightening enhanced our venue ambiance.  I recommend purple up-lightening.
6) Groove Factory offers a photo booth with fun props.  These are great keepsakes and another fun reception activity for guests plus the bride & groom.

Work with Groove Factory if you want a high-energy live band, with added value.  It’s almost a one stop shop.

Groove Factory was AMAZING!! They played at our wedding reception and I can’t count the number of people who came up to me asking how we found them and raving about how fun they were. They kept everyone of all ages on the dance floor the entire time, playing all the most fun songs from the 80s. We also used the same company for music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and DJ/MC. It was so nice to not have to worry about any of the music, it all turned out better than I could’ve imagined. I heard over and over “Best Wedding Ever!” – thank you Groove Factory for making our wedding so amazingly fun and so absolutely memorable!! (PS, have them in 80s costumes-so fun!)

We hired the 80s band and can honestly say it was the best wedding music ever! They were very talented and very fun – they kept everyone on the dance floor the whole time! The music was perfect because it could be enjoyed by all ages. I would absolutely recommend them.

The DJ was AWESOME!!!! He kept people on the dance floor all night!!! He also was able to (literally a couple minutes before the ceremony started) upload all of my ceremony music (I was a bit late getting it to him and then it was lost at the venue for a while). The picture girl was everywhere she needed to be! I cannot wait to see the pictures! THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!

Groove Factory Entertainment provided everything in one click! Groove Factory was the band that kept the dance floor full from beginning to end playing a mixture of old and new. Everyone particulary liked their mashups of current songs. The DJ did an outsatnding job not only of making announcments, but filling in when the band took a break. They showed up early, were extremely professional, very flexable in the schedule, and interacted with everyone. Not only did they provide sound, stage, and lighting…they provided a photobooth with extra costumes so guests could flair their pictures!!!

By far, the best band/DJ combo I have ever had the pleasure to hear!!!

We hired Groove Factory for our corporate holiday party and they were excellent! High energy from beginning to end and had a good variation of music. They were very professional and sounded great. We highly recommend!

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 thank Freeze Frame for helping make our wedding so great!

Freeze Frame was awesome, they really got everyone going and out on the dancefloor! They even let us sing with them, which was really fun. We got tons of compliments on the band. Beyond the music, they did a terrific job of emceeing and keeping up the timeline for the event. The before, during and after communication and professionalism was outstanding. I would highly recommend them for any event or occasion.
