The Groovy Cats - Wedding Band - Nottingham, East Midlands Event Location: Swallows Nest Barn, Warwick Event Type: Wedding 27th November 2021
These guys are INSANE! Honestly, they were the highlight of my wedding (don’t tell my husband). We were let down by a previous band 6 weeks before the big day, and I really do feel in this case, everything happens for a reason. If it wasn't for that cancellation, we would have never found the Groovy Cats! Our wedding evening flew by with this amazing band. The music they played was awesome and all our guests were up dancing; even my 87-year-old grandad who was waving his walking stick in the air! The band learnt our first dance song and made it their own, along with a very funky version of Cher’s “Believe”. We had so many compliments on the night (and for days following our wedding) about how incredible the band were. Communication with the band was so easy too, Isaac was so quick to respond to our questions and was so chilled! I will be recommending the Groovy Cats to everyone who needs a band going forward. I'm also looking for more excuses for another party to have them ther ...

The Groovy Cats were absolutely brilliant; from the moment we emailed about an enquiry they were so helpful. Amazing 7-piece band playing great songs to get you dancing. Our wedding guests thought they were brilliant and are still talking about it weeks later. I would 100% recommend to anyone.

We've played around the UK & Europe at thousands of different events. All of the members are highly passionate about the music they and we play, and it shows in the performance.
We've played as the house band for a number of events (including Children In Need, twice!), many gigs with corporate clients such as the RAF (for whom we played just before Peter Andre), and what we do most is weddings, for which we feel very grateful, as it's an honor to play for someone's special day!

Meet the Act

The Groovy Cats were founded in 2013 by brothers, Rupert and Oliver Stone. The band experimented with different lineups for a few years, before hiring trumpeter Isaac Horne and drummer Luke Middleton. Later, saxophonist Noah Smith joined the band and completed our lineup.
Making music, putting smiles on faces, and creating happy memories for our clients is what we love to do. Expect good times, laughter and plenty of interaction with the band.
