Introduction: For the past 19 years, The Groove Doctors have performed for many happy customers for corporate gigs, weddings, clubs, private parties and festivals. We book directly with the client and not through an agency so we can offer professional entertainment for a discounted price. Whether you are looking for a duo, trio, small band or full 8 piece dance/wedding/party band, THE GROOVE DOCTORS can accommodate your event with professional musicians and top notch talent. The GROOVE Doctors are a fantastic dance party band that have been making clients ecstatic since 2000 with our performances and with our devotion to making their happiness the top item on our list of priorities. We have played hundreds of events throughout the San Francisco bay area and Northern California. We are professional, flexible and very easy to work with and we bring high energy to every event and help crowds have FUN! Our incredibly diverse song list of home run hits from the last 50 years gets people of all ages onto the dance floor. Whether you want Disco/Funk, Motown/Soul, Classic Rock, 80’s-90’s, Today’s Hits or Ballads & Standards/Jazz/Swing for slow dances, the cocktail hour, the dinner hour and 1st Dances at weddings, the Doctors can play it all. There is one common thing about all the songs we play: WE GET PEOPLE DANCING! We bring in our own sound and light team to all of our performances AND we carry Liability Insurance Insurance which is mandatory at many venues. I enjoy interacting and assisting the customer in planning the logistics of the event and finding out how to make their event special. From song requests to MCing the event, the Groove Doctors put the client first. To hire The Groove Doctors, full 8 piece band it is a minimum of 2-3 hours performance time. Minimum price of $1500. Pricing for the smaller band starts at $800 - $2500 depending what your needs are. We can provide Duos, jazz trios, top 40 band with female lead singer. Pricing for the full band with Pro sound and light team for weddings is in the $3,000 -$5,000 range depending on location. We will work with your budget and still make your event special. We book directly with the client and not through an agency so the client gets the BEST pricing for professional live music.

I hired The Groove Doctors for my 50th birthday party. First of all, I had an entertainer who had to cancel on me last minute so I was in a panic. I reached out to The Groove Doctors and Jane responded to me immediately. Luckily they were available and amazingly Jane pulled the band together last minute. From there it was smooth sailing with the load in and set up. When it came time to perform, oh boy did they! This is an incredible 8 piece band. They sound great and played songs that kept us dancing. I couldn't be happier. My family loved their performance. It was a moment we'll never forget. I highly recommend The Groove Doctors!

We had The Groove Doctors perform for a fundraising event (gala) and they were amazing!!! From start to finish, they were professional and really added to the energy and enthusiasm of the evening. We were able to pick the songs that we wanted to have them play, and they also played some background music through the dinner. We would hire them again and again and highly recommend this group to anyone!!!

Saw the Groove Doctors at several venues over the past few years. They play a wide assortment of dance music and truly engage with the crowd. They show up on time, play as scheduled, and are outstanding entertainment!

I hired the 4-piece Grove Doctors’ spin-off for my husband’s retirement party; one female singer, two guitarists, and a drummer. They rocked the place!! Every one of our guests commented on how good they sounded, and the band was what made the party such a success! I’d hire them back in a heartbeat!!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We have a pricing sheet which we will share with our clients based on their event. Price is determined upon location, size of the band they are requesting. Usually the full band for the Groove Doctors is 8 performers and 2 sound techs. To bring in our entire 8 piece band it is a 3 hour performance minimum. $1800 minimum locally. For corporate functions and weddings the pricing is anywhere from $1,800 to $5,500. If the client wants a duo or smaller band, pricing is on case by case basis. The Groove Doctors actually charge LESS than most professional wedding/corporate variety bands because we do not book through an agency. We book DIRECTLY with the client and can negotiate the price based upon their budget. We can accommodate a smaller jazz band or classic rock band or a larger band with one female vocalist. The full band is 8 pieces with 2 females vocalists and a horn section.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We find out when and where the venue is and how many attendees are anticipated. What type of event is it? We then calculate the cost and we bring the sound and lights as well and manage special requests. We like the client to come and see a live performance. I then generate a professional contract, contact the venue and provide Liability Insurance information. I work with the client and the venue until the event is over.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    The experience of all members totals over 150 years of performing experience. All of the members of the Groove Doctors have been performing for many years. Several members are music teachers as well. The Doctors have been performing as a band since 2000.
