The band really take pride in capturing the spirit and energy of the original artists they are covering, ensuring that you will always hear the classic songs performed to their full effect, often described as 'just like the real thing'!

What People Say:

"I would like to thank you and your band members for playing on Saturday night! It certainly made it a great 30th party. You guys got it just right for a smaller venue and had everyone on the dancefloor including the young and old! The song choices were great – Led Zeppelin went down really well, I didn’t need to encourage people onto the dancefloor but struggled to get them off! My guests were singing your praises the next day especially the mother of the young boy who was allowed to have a go on the drums during the break – he was in awe of you guys and it was really kind of you. You have been really friendly and professional and made it really easy for me – no stresses at all and I’m more than happy to recommend Grouper to my friends and family! Thanks again and hopefully see you again!"

"The band were fantastic - everybody kept asking were I had found them and couldn't believe how good they were! The played exactly what I wanted and even let me sing my favourite song with them! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!"
Simon Curtis - wedding reception - Surrey - July 2006

"Everyone, including a number of musicians, thought the band was brilliant. I think it must have been obvious from the number of people who were dancing how well you all went down with the guests. The staff at the [venue] said that you were the most professional musicians that they had worked with. Please pass my thanks to the rest of the band."
David Hunter - daughter’s wedding reception - North Yorkshire - December 2005

"They were really fantastic, the adults loved them and so did the kids. A really brilliant performance."
