The Groove Inc is about music, entertainment and having fun, and is perfect for corporate events, weddings, and private parties. We are not the average coverband. At the sweet center of The Groove Inc's performance repertoire is a truly entertaining show. Old school with an edge, Rock n Roll meets disco, The Groove Inc lays it down, putting their own spin on all the party favorites!

See our set list for an idea.
We love music that moves a crowd, and keeps a dance floor full.
We hit the dance standards from Brickhouse to Sweet Home Alabama. A couple years of playing a regular gig at Harrah's Rincon as "Uncle Boogie" allowed us to hone set lists for almost any crowd. Our drummer and one of the lead vocalists, JL, has DJ'ed close to a thousand events. JJ, our guitarist has a company that supplies many of the large venues in Southern California's sound systems. Together these two know what music works and what music will fall flat. We guarantee an event where your people will party and remember the night!
We provide Master of Ceremony when requested. Jon St.John, lead vocals and keyboards has been a radio personality and host, radio programmer and currently a voice over star. You hear him all the time! He will MC your event with style and personality!
Erika and Andi, vocalists have the moves to go along with their voices. Stirring up the crowd - it's just what they do.
2 electric circuits, 110v. standard
If a stage is required - minimum size 16' x 20'
Complete sound and lighting system for the performance.
We can use a very high quality digital drum set to allow our volume levels to be brought down for any size venue.
