The Smooth Groove and Jaime Gibson provided fun professional background music for our event in central London and performed both in and outdoors. Nothing was too hard for them

Hi Guys,

Thank you for making our twin sons’ 21st birthday celebration so much fun. It takes real skill to entertain everyone across the age spectrum and ‘Smooth Groove’ did an awesome job. I can’t speak highly enough of your professionalism, enthusiasm and great musical skills. I would recommend you to anyone of any age for a great party – thanks again!

‘Hans and I would like to say thank you so very much to the TSG String Trio and The Smooth Groove band as we had some so many lovely comments from family and friends on how they performed on the day! We were thrilled with how everything turned out on the day especially how the Trio played during the ceremony and also how we had the guests dancing the whole night during the reception. Great set selections and really set the tone for the evening!!….We were truly delighted with your services’

Wedding at Dunbar House,
Watsons Bay, April 2016

‘We hired The Smooth Groove for our staff Christmas Party at North Sydney. It was great having a band with the flexibility to start the night as a jazz quartet for background music during drinks and dinner who could then liven things up with a vocalist and brass players for dance music later in the evening. They even played some great impromptu music during our lucky door prizes draw. The dance floor was full all night from the minute the dance music started and thanks to The Smooth Groove our staff enjoyed the evening immensely. We would definitely hire them again for a future function.’

‘I just want to say a huge thank you to you and the band for the fabulous entertainment you provided for our wedding. The only complaint was people were exhausted the next day from too much dancing! It really means a lot to me that you were just so professional to deal with and that the performance you gave was just amazing.  So again, thank you for making the night so special!

‘I just want to say thanks so much for getting the band together for Saturday night.  Everyone loved them and the choice of music was very appropriate for the age group.  The female vocalist was fabulous.  For whats its worth, because I work with a bunch of musos Im often asked to recommend a band and I always suggest The Smooth Groove and those who have booked you have always been thrilled’

‘Can I just tell you, you were all fantastic last Friday!  I have been looking for a band with the same repertoire and caliber for the past 7 years and I couldn’t find one in Sydney.  In Manila where I come from, this is how we spend our night outs, have some drinks and watch a great band.’

Thank you so much for a wonderful evening! I have had so many people raving about the band and telling me how good you guys are.  I can not stop praising you and all your team, you were so easy to work with and everything was an absolute success. Thank you. I will definitely be recommending you guys for any future events! Thank you also for being so flexible & helping me through out the whole process. ‘

Corporate Event

‘What a great evening.  With over 500 guests including the Queensland Premier we needed a band to play music to listen to and later on music to dance.  The evening was a great success and we wanted to say a big thank you.  The guests loved it, especially the styles from jazz through to dance.  Keep up the great music’

‘I wanted to thank you for the awesome job you guys did at our wedding. I have always imagined that a live band would bring a great atmosphere to a wedding and that certainly proved true. Unfortunately the night was over all too fast as Jason and I could have kept dancing for hours!  I understand there was major crowd participation when you got to Love Shack after we’d left. Thanks for putting up with our drunken punters!’
