"My husband and I haven't danced so much since high school, and that was a long time ago! Your renditions are so authentic and the band is so versatile! It was Chicago's "25 or 6 to 4" that got us on the dance floor. The older songs are great but it was wonderful to me moving to Pharell Williams' "Happy." It was truly refreshing to dance to an accomplished live band! Thanks for a great time."
- Therese Taylor, at the Oakville Wine Enthusiasts' Winter Gala.
"Thank you so much for Groove Hammer’s excellent performance at our wedding. We had a blast, as did our guests, which you could easily see on the dance floor. The talent in Groove Hammer is outstanding. We noticed all the members seamlessly improvised and extended a couple songs when the conga line and dance circles were going. This really kept the momentum going. I was also amazed by your lead guitar and saxophonist, who both spontaneously responded to my air guitar and air sax moves with a full out guitar/saxophone battle. Again, the rest of the band followed the improvisation as if it had been rehearsed a hundred times. Wow!!!
We also appreciate your organization and flexibility with the meal finishing a later than expected. I was getting a bit stressed and your friendly demeanour was very helpful. We would definitely recommend Groove Hammer to our friends, and we look forward to your future shows. Simply dynamite! " - Christina and Mark Miller
