Groove City Open Session

Sunday, February 24th, Groove City had its first open session of 2008.  The band got together to rehearse new material they are adding to their repertoire this year, as well as special requests made by clients for whom they are performing in the next few months.  At 5:30pm, when the rehearsal ended, couples were invited to listen to the band to and decide if Groove City was the right fit for their reception.  

Six couples attended the session.  Groove City made a presentation, performing 10 song excerpts for the guests.  The first half of the presentation was in English, including oldies, disco, rock, country and motown.  The second half was a mix of Latin music, as many of our couples were looking to include those genres for their families and friends.  Salsa, merengue, cumbias, boleros and even reggaeton.

After the presentation was over, each of the couples got to spend some time talking to the band asking questions about their particular reception, and their music needs.  Four of the couples decided Groove City is the band for them!  We are so excited to have been invited to be a part of their wedding.

Our friend Ryan Salinas took these beautiful pictures.  Thanks, Ryan for coming to our party!  Ryan is the owner of Reve Weddings and one of the most talented wedding designers I know (and I must say, pretty good behind a camera!).  He has created many a fairy tale wedding.  Check out his designs online.
