THE COMPLETE PARTY BAND
For the full party experience, we provide an 8-piece covers band including two singers, a 3-piece horn section, and a rhythm section who will keep you dancing through the night with our full repertoire.
THE COMPACT BAND
For smaller venues or budgets we can provide a 'stripped back' version of the covers band with either a male or female singer, saxophone and rhythm section.
THE JAZZ QUARTET
Need some smooth background music for your drinks reception or dinner? No problem. Our musicians can also form a jazz quartet (or trio - without drums - for smaller venues) including saxophone, piano, bass and drums.
"That was absolutely fantastic!"
- The Clarks (Private parties 2014 & 2010)
"Thank you for the fantastic performance from the Groove Giants. I have received nothing but the highest compliments from my guests on your efforts and I've never seen such a full dance floor at a wedding from start to finish. From the moment the jazz group started to your last song the music was beyond incredible!"
- Walker & Kersey families (Wedding reception 2015)
"We just wanted to write to thank you so much for all the music you provided last Saturday. To have the sounds floating up to the top lawn at the beginning of the reception was super and then your music later on was just right and fitted in so well. No-one needed a second invitation to come on to the dance floor and everyone obviously enjoyed all the music so much and we had so many enthusiastic comments throughout the evening."
- Austen & Meutcheye families (Wedding reception 2014)
"Such a fantastic evening at Latimer House for Shed@ThePark's gala!"
- Shed @ The Park (Charity event 2014)
"You're a brilliant and unique group of musicians, and were a credit to the Mayor's Ball."
- Jane White, Mayor of High Wycombe (Charity Ball 2011)
