When I tell people who know me from my being a realtor (Keller Williams Realty) or from school (UC DavisBA Chemistry & Santa Clara UniversityMBA) that I play in a band (The GROOVE Doctors), the most common question by far that I am asked is “what kind of music do you play?” I answer “a little of everything…Motown-Soul, Disco-Funk, Classic Rock, 80’s and brand new songs by artists such as Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, plus we can do Ballads, Jazz Standards, Latin and Swing at where appropriate at private parties such as weddings, birthday parties and corporate events.”

As our conversation progresses I mention we really don’t care what kind of music we play as long as it gets people dancing because we’re a Dance Party Band. Well what is a Dance Party Band? I think a Dance Party Band is a band who helps the guests  have a good time, whether at a nightclub or private party. Besides playing home run hit dance songs that get people off their seats and onto the dance floor, the  GROOVE Doctors interact with the audience and we  have  fun while we play which is contagious. The band is having fun and we help bring the audience along in the good times.

One reason the Dr’s always get people dancing is that we have a song list full of great songs to dance to. If we learn a song and play it 3-4 times and it doesn’t get people dancing we put it in the Graveyard of songs. Same goes for a song that has run its course, which happens quite often with modern pop songs by artist such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Karmin, Carrie Underwood, Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, etc.)

If you want a great Dance Party Band at your next event be sure  to call Dr. Dave at (925) 487-3572 to hire the GROOVE Doctors.
