The Groove Method (or TGM for short) is a collective of London’s finest session and West End musicians who have come together to deliver an exciting, energetic and soulful yet seriously stylish outfit that will enhance any occasion. When they are not playing with TGM, you can find band members:

  • Performing with the likes of Elton John, Robbie Williams, Olly Murs, Mark Ronson, Boy George, Lily Allen, James Morrison, Alexandra Burke, The Wanted, Gloria Gaynor, Rick Astley, Pixie Lott, Nicole Scherzinger, Diana Vickers, Beverly Knight, Toyah Wilcox, Peter Andre, Susan Boyle and Donny Osmond to name but a few!
  • Playing on the majority of current West End shows including: Motown: The Musical, Wicked, The Lion King, The Book of Mormon, Jersey Boys, Beautiful, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Mamma Mia.
  • Making regular appearances at venues including The Royal Albert Hall, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, The O2, Wembley Arena and many more.

Delivering a tailored mix of music, from fresh chart toppers to dance floor fillers, The Beatles to Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind & Fire to Bruno Mars, ABBA to Amy Winehouse, TGM cater for any occasion (weddings, corporate events, office parties and award shows etc), delivering a show that doesn’t stop and will keep your guests on the dance floor from start to finish (although TGM regrettably cannot take responsibility for any sore feet at the end of the night).

TGM’s musical director is a well established London arranger whose credits include numerous Touring & West End shows (including The Lion King) as well as radio broadcasts such as Magic of the Musicals which was broadcast live from the Royal Albert Hall on Magic FM. If your event needs a specific piece of music, He will ‘arrange’ for it to happen!

Although TGM are based in London, they don’t just stay inside the M25. They seem to perform best when in warm climates and close proximity to a beach, so please feel free to bear this in mind when planning the location for your event!

TGM guarantee to deliver world-class entertainment and will bend over backwards to cater to all of your musical needs.

The Groove Method were really fantastic. Very flexible and understanding of changing times as the day/evening went on. Big thanks to Harrison for organising it all.

From the initial point of contact with The Groove Method, booking our band couldn't have been a smoother process. After discussing what our first dance requirements were, they provided us with a recording so we could practice! We picked some of our favourite numbers from their set list and to say the band are world class is an understatement. We wanted a band with experience but youth, and thats what these guys are! They literally made our day! Outstanding.


Can we request a song for our first dance?
Absolutely, TGM would be honoured to play your first dance! After a quick discussion with you to make sure it would work with our line-up, our in-house arranger will get started on a live version of the song.

Can we request other songs that aren’t already in your repertoire?
TGM love expanding our rep so we actively encourage requesting songs we don’t already play (as long as they will work with our line-up)! We include up to 2 request songs for free per event, any more than that attracts an additional fee.

How many members are there in TGM?
TGM has 9 members: 2 Vocalists, Keys, Bass, Drums, Guitar, Sax, Trumpet & Trombone.

Can the band line up change or is it always 9?
Obviously we understand having 9 members is not always practical so we are able to reduce the band down to a 6 piece (2 Vocalists, Keys/MD, Bass, Drums, Guitar) or 7 piece (adding Sax to the 6-piece line-up). When we perform as a 6-piece, TGM use a pre-recorded horn section to maintain the full sound of our bigger line-up.

How long does TGM play for?
Usually TGM performs two 1-hour sets but we are happy to be flexible on timings if needed.

How much room does TGM need on the stage?
TGM will require a space that is roughly 6m x 6m. However if your event space is smaller, please let Warble know and we can discuss viable options.

What is TGM’s dress code?
TGM has several dress codes to suit different events. We also accommodate specific requests for occasions such as a Black Tie Ball where we all wear dinner jackets and bow ties etc.

How long does it take TGM to set up on the day?
TGM will require a minimum of 90 minutes to set up and sound check.

Do you have public liability insurance?
Yes, absolutely!

How far in advance should we think about booking?
The earlier the better! TGM take bookings up to 2 years in advance and have a busy schedule especially around wedding season and Christmas.

What about Award Ceremonies?
TGM offer a unique package for award ceremonies. As well as our usual main live set we have a catalogue of stings to choose from to accompany your participants on and off the stage, or you can request specific music that is relevant to your event which our MD, Jon, will then arrange for the band. If you have any questions or would like a list of our stings please contact Warble for further details.
