What inspired you to start your own business?
I have been a musician/entertainer since I was in the 3rd grade. It is not what I do, it is who I am and I have been blessed to have found 10 other musicians who feel the same way. I've watched the greats from Sammy Davis Jr., to James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Tom Jones, Eric Clapton and Otis Redding perform and that inspired me to want to do the same. Today I see artist like Bruno Mars bringing back the old school vibe and that tells me my desire was well placed way back then.
Why should our clients choose you?
There are a lot of great bands all over the world, so why you would hire one over the other is simply personal preference. However, you should choose Groove Ride because you want to have a great time from beginning to end. With us it's not just about putting on a great show and playing great music. It's about being professional, respectful and reliable. It's about giving you 100% of our best even when things may start going a little sideways. We have collectively over 80+ years of experience performing for all kinds of crowds. Our musicians are some of the best the Bay Area has to offer and we LOVE what we do!
