  • •Absolutely loved the band…everything about it. You rocked the house, had people dancing the entire night, and the assortment of music was completely unreal. I walked in there, couldn’t believe people were dancing the entire night, and at the end, packed the floor again for the final songs. Your band learning the 1st dance songs was completely awesome too. True talent from every person of the band. The equipment, MC abilities, professionalism, flexibility was off the charts. Best touches – Dr. Dave getting me (the groom) to let me know about the last couple of songs, the introduction of the wedding party, and the real talent and energy that the band brought. Favorite songs – chicken dance, Shout, and everything in between. (Brian – Groom).
  • •Thank you, thank you, thank you for making it such a memorable night. So. Much. Energy! Our guests got their energy from you guys and that’s what kept them going. It was an unforgettable night, in no small part due to the Groove Doctors. The song choice was perfect and everyone had a great time. Doctor Dave is a great guy to work with and he made sure that we got what we wanted in terms of set list, timings, etc. We will definitely hit up the GROOVE Doctors for events and anniversaries in the future! (Shiv – Groom).
  • .I wanted to say how incredibly amazing your band was. Your band literally made our wedding. SO THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! Everyone since our wedding has said that your band helped make our wedding one of the best parties and celebrations they have ever been to! Your band had tons of energy during the reception, you played such as great misc of songs to get everyone happy to be on the dance floor, and so many people told me how much their get hurt the next day because they dance so much. The songs you learned for our first dances and the ceremony were also perfect! And when one of your singers started rapping and how they came out onto the dance floor, everyone loved that. You helped make our wedding a true success and a memorable event for me and Matt. (Sarah – Bride).

  • Dave, Thank you so much for playing the Los Gatos Food Fest. The Groove Doctors was a great addition to the series and the crowd absolutely loved you guys. We are in our 2nd year of the LGFF and the night you played was our biggest turn out. People came, and wanted to stay until the very last song was played because of your performance. 2 months later I still have customers commenting on the stellar performance The Groove Doctors gave. It was great to see so many people singing along to the songs, dancing and just having a great time! I must say besides playing great music, the band as a whole was so professional and nice to work with. Thank you again for a wonderful performance. I hope the Groove Doctors enjoyed playing at the LG Food Fest as much as we all enjoyed having you. We can’t wait to have an encore performance from you.
    Best Regards,
    Katie McLoughlin

We could not have been happier. The quality of the band was top notch starting with the members doing a professional job. You adapted very well to the whole event. You played the music the people wanted to hear and dance to. The pacing of a wedding reception is very important to have a great reception. From the introductions, the toasts, any announcements, the throwing of the bouquet all went super. There was never a slow time. The GROOVE Doctors did a very good job in keeping the reception going at the right pace. Many people commented how nice your whole set-up was with the lights and PA system. It was very enjoyable having a good assortment of instruments and the strong vocal performance of your singers. Please feel free to use us as a referral at any time and to pass along our praise and thanks to your band members. I hope we do have a need to use the GROOVE Doctors again in the future.
